When I read content on a web page, I like to use the up and down arrows and PgUp PgDn to go through it. I hate having to reach over for the mouse and line everything up to go to the next screen. Since the last update, it seems I can't do that. When I hit the down arrow, or the PgDn key, it skips randomly down the page. This is especially true if I am reading an article with pictures in it. I think this might have something to do with my clicking yes to an inquiry from Firefox that just appeared on the page while I was browsing. It asked whether I wanted to be able to block text with keyboard commands. I'd like to change it back to whatever it was before, but can't figure out how to do that. Bill

Sometime in the last 2-3 months, it has become impossible for me to use Firefox and Zoom concurrently on my Macbook Pro (2015). When I open a Firefox window during a Zoom meeting my meeting lags, almost freezes, and I get a beautiful spinning Mac rainbow. Eventually this subsides and I can exit Firefox and Zoom returns to function as usual. I am able to pair Chrome and Zoom together with no trouble. I would like to go back to using Firefox, but have had to temporarily switch to Zoom.

Any advice about how to get these two programs to play nice would be appreciated. Thanks!

When receiving the following messages when accessing a specific URL.

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to xyz. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

Then clicking on the Advanced... button at the bottom of the popup window.

And then clicking on the Accept the Risk and Continue button.

My question is does Firefox make any changes to Internet Options or anywhere else, including within Firefox to change configurations of any type when the Accept the Risk and Continue button is clicked on?

Thank you!

I believe this started with 94.0.2 but could be 94.0.1. Looking at various things in Easysnews.com, for instance thumbnails, the title for that item used to change from blue (Unvisted Links) to brown (Visited Links) and keep the brown color until I exited Easynews. Now it does not. In another case, looking at my list of favorite groups, the group name will turn brown as long as my mouse is over it but it will not stick if I select that item.

I am not using system colors and Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above is set to Only With High Contrast themes. I tried the other two choices but they really created a mess.

I have also tried deleting any easynews cookies to no effect.

Title basically says it all. This newest update of Firefox has had multiple problems, starting with losing ALL my previous bookmarks and making me create them all over again. The latest issue is something I can't patch up myself. When I right-click the tabs bar to select "Reopen Closed Tab," it's now buried beneath some non-functioning drop-down arrow. Why? The drop arrow takes up the same amount of space the Reopen Closed Tab does. There's no room saved. As an added insult, arrow doesn't actually work. I can't click it. I can't scroll down through the options. I can't do anything. Reopen Closed Tab is now buried and completely unusable. If this continues, I'll be forced to downgrade to the previous Firefox to get rid of this problem. How do I solve this?

I recently started having a problem composing an email message when using Windows Live Mail and wondered if anyone has experienced the same issue. Another person on the Microsoft Help Forum reported the same issue, also using Firefox. The issue is that while composing an email, the window suddenly jumps back to the Inbox. It is very intermittent so a little difficult to test out with other browsers I hate using. Another issue which does seem to be only happening with Firefox is inability to open attachments on the first try.

Hello, A few months ago, Firefox has not been loading Youtube videos properly. The video just never loads. Debugging steps I have done.

1) Disabled Hardware Acceleration 2) Deleted all cookies & cache 3) Ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode 4) Uninstalled Firefox & Reinstalled 5) Not a part of my debug but I recently did a fresh install of windows on my computer and installed Firefox with the same issue. I do get videos to work on both Edge and Chrome

I am at a loss at this point and any helping hints would be useful. I have an inkling that it might be put to my playback device but it wouldn't explain why it plays just fine on other browsers.

Any ideas?

Hello Team,

I have seen this process: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Data_Collection#Requesting_Approval

I am helping to manage Firefox (policies.json) for the large organisation/company. We do currently have policy with DisableTelemetry=true and would like to enable it but: - would like to have access to it - would like to execute some Data Science activities on that telemetry

Is that possible ?

Seems that tools like Looker, GAD or Measurement Dashboard of Firefox Public Data Report are showing only global statistics while we are interested in looking at "our" statistics only (around 100K endpoints).

Thanks, Michal
