I much prefer Firefox to Chrome and others but whenever I use the google search function in the search bar, ALL the results seem to be USA-based. 100% useless for me, an English-speaking European living between France and England. What do I need to do to my Firefox browser to tell it once and for all that I am not American and nor am I interested in American content?!? TIA KB

I often use the cync, as its very a usefull tool, for when my pc crashes and I have to re-install windows. What is a real pain though, is even when I have the latest version of fire fox installed , after cync has completed, I stll get back many book marks that I have deleted well be before my last recync and with an older version of firefox. Which i find to be a real pain.

Would it not be possible to change the way cync works, ie, you cold add a button, words to the effect "cync from online to you", in that way, I know I am getting the book marks and data I sent up there last time, I cync-ed

Or to cync your data, when wishing to put all your latest bookmarks offline, would it not be possible to "clear online bookmars and data.

Anys I hope this helps you to understand the problem

Many Thanks

How to inhibit animations/twinkles/flickers/waves that are replacing loading elements ?

SUMMARY : I would like to disable all animations/twinkles/flickers/waves that indicate some elements inside a Web page are missing and are being loaded. I think all these "animations" make my computer lag.

Hello,

I would say that since Firefox 89, my browser has begun lagging like hell when it loaded some rich Web pages. And I have the impression it is worse with Firefox 107. When I'm saying Firefox lags, I mean it uses heavily my CPU (over 50%), and Firefox is almost unresponsive (for complex Web pages. For Wikipedia or Amazon, I don't have any trouble for example). I have to wait for Firefox to finish to load the full Web page and to display all elements before the usage of my CPU gets back to 1%. And it can take several minutes for some sites/pages.

The problem doesn't come from my connection. And the trouble doesn't come from sites I'm visiting because once all elements are loaded Firefox is responsive.

More precisely, for some sites, when I start loading the page, Firefox replaces missing (i.e not yet displayed/loaded) elements of the page with a rectangle of the same size of the element and each one of these rectangles are slightly flickering to inform me that AT THIS PLACE there is an element of the same size that is going to be displayed. When I'm saying "flickering" I could say it looks like a rectangle with a gradient of gray that is "waving" slowly. Sometimes it's a very light gray, sometimes a dark gray. It depends of the sites.

And all these kind of "animations" are killing my computer. And I would like to totally disable these animations/twinkles/flickers/waves. For example, would it be possible to replace the color gradient animation with a static pink color ?

I have a 10 years old laptop with iGPU (an Intel i5-2410M exactly) without discrete GPU. That doesn't help. I know. For me the trouble comes from there. But currently I can't afford buying a new laptop. I think all my drivers are up to date as my Ubuntu 20.04 is up to date.

WHAT I'VE TRIED WITHOUT SUCCESS 1. I removed ‘.mozilla’ folder in my profile (i.e the folder that contains all addons and customizations) 2. Firefox in Safe Mode 3. I disabled hardware acceleration 4. I've tried Firefox uses too much memory or CPU resources

I really would appreciate your help because now, surfing on some sites becomes a big pain and I'm becoming mad (LOL).

Thank you in advance :)

   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

I was trying to sync my settings to my new laptop with my login and PW (which was correct) and it kept telling me it wasn't right. So, I decided to change it but my MFA on Google for Firefox got wiped once I switched phones. I had to use a backup code to get in and want to re-enable the MFA.

Unfortunately, and for no real reason, it won't work. I scan the QR code in Google Authenticator, it sets up and gives me a code, I enter the code, and then it tells me it's the wrong one. I even tried to do it by manually setting it up and it made no difference. Now I can't re-enable it because it won't work right.

What the actual hell is going on here, guys?

Hello all, just yesterday I noticed my Yahoo inbox was not fully loading and even when it finished loading, I have had the same few messages showing, a series of just gray bars below that, no ads, etc. and will not allow me to delete or perform commands. When I check the box by an email it simply takes me to the email, as happens if I do so before it's fully finished loading. It is as if it is still trying to load somewhere in the ether land, since there is no indication on my toolbar that it's working. I've tried everything except removing it from Firefox. I thought it was my internet service but all is fine with other sites and Yahoo mail works fine on Safari. It's never happened before. Many thanks for your help.

I just installed Firefox 107.0 on a new installation of Linux. I'm trying to get it set up to work the way I'm accustomed to, and can't figure this out. Instead of having search results show up in the current tab, I want them to open in a new tab, as they always have for me. As this works Just Fine on my desktop, I see no reason that it wouldn't work on my new laptop. If anybody here knows, please let me know.

Hi Everyone, My Bank has suddenly decided that ALL cookies must be allowed before letting their customers in -- a requirement with which I wholly disagree. My FireFox is set to block anything that moves, and supported by Ad Blockers and Ublock too. Is there a way in which I can configure FF to allow me into the Bank site without having to change my "secure" settings every time? I am no computer genius - so please make it simple for me.

Thanks everyone.

I am having issues with pages on DAX Guide, e.g.: https://dax.guide/now/

These issues are when using Firefox on Windows 10. I have tried with Safe mode, and turning off Enhanced Tracking protection. I have made no changes to Javascript etc.

Issue 1 If I select a code example and try to run it in an external program (e.g. DAX Studio), it fails, and I have found that the reason is because the "space" characters are not ASCII code 32, which is a normal space, but instead ASCII 160. Another symptom of this is that you cannot unindent the paragraphs in a text editor (Vim), if you paste the code there. I have tested and this is not an issue with Chrome, Edge, or Opera. Also if I click on the "Try It" button, it takes you to a runnable version of the code where the spaces are correct. These are workarounds, but why is Firefox using the wrong space characters?

Issue 2 I have seen another response to this kind of question, but it did not exactly answer it: on the website as above, when you click on the "Copy" button, which points to https://dax.guide/now/#, the code is supposed to be copied to the clipboard, however it does nothing. This works without issue in the browsers mentioned above. I have noticed previously on other websites that URLs ending in hash / pound did not work in Firefox. Is this something that Firefox just does not handle, or is there a setting to enable it?

Thanks

When running previous FF V-90, (and all previous versions for years now) use of Corel Photo-Paint X4 was fine. Since updating FF to 107 (after a brief try of 115 which was fully uninstalled almost immediately) when I try to "cut" part of an image, although the rectangle tool shows during selection, it vanishes as soon as the mouse is stopped. The uploaded image shows the process - which ends up with the required result ---- it's just that the important part of "What I Have Selected" seems to have been nobbled by FF. Can anyone suggest anything please?

Thanks,

Ian
