I've noticed for about 2 weeks now, my google street view is not working like it used to. It some times will not respond and when it does respond it is very slow. I didn't used to have this problem, so maybe a new Firefox update or some other issue is causing then problem? How can I view my browser settings to see if some thing there is causing the problem? Hopefully, someone can help and cure the problem. Thanks,

I got a new computer and am moving my profile to new computer(W10 to W10). The old profile is 464MB, mostly in Storage/Default 234MB I think this is a lot and want to slim it down. I want to keep bookmarks and have it auto recall previous sites I have visited. Can I keep the bookmarks and auto recall, but delete some of the files? These files are big also, places.sqlite, webappstore.sqlite, favicons.sqlite Thank you very much.

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hello!

I am using Firefox on my notebook with external monitor.

When the external monitor is set up as the main display and above the notebook monitor, the toolbar popup menus in Firefox are cut off on the notebook monitor (≡ & addons like uBlock etc.), so only a small upper part of them is displayed. The ≡ menu can be fully operated in this case because it has scroll bars, the addons' menus do not.

If the notebook monitor is set up as the primary monitor or is not below the external monitor, the problem does not occur.

Disabling all addons does not cause any change.

The problem does not occur with other browsers either.

Would appreciate some help!

Hello.

Flash files stopped being supported on January 12th. I am a user of a site where "mini chat" uses swf files as the sound of a new message. Since firefox does not play these files, is there any option to notify (e.g. beep sound) that a site has tried to play such a file? maybe some kind of addon?

Or is there a way to make swf files work only on this page?

Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

Hi. I've long used Firefox for research and I bookmark over years what I read. My Firefox in Xubuntu upgraded to version 84.0.2 in two separate machines. One has a 37+ MB JSON with over 100k bookmarks. The other is for casual use and has about 150 bookmarks.

When I try to restore bookmarks from JSON, it just sits on both machines. This is the first time this happened in about a decade of using Firefox. (I don't have the JSON files converted to HTML, but this should be working without doing that.)

Can someone kindly help? My line of work is hooked into my bookmarks in Firefox, and I can't seem to get them to reload into the browser.

Thank you in advance!

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

I have used Roboform password manager with FF for years. Within the last 6 months, Roboform's toolbar no longer automatically displays below FF when I open FF. I have to force it to by going into RF options and dragging the RF icon onto FF (see attached screen shot). As shown in the image, RF and/or FF doesn't even think RF is installed! But it is. I've contacted RF multiple times, and they claim they're working on it. I wonder if anyone in the FF community has the same problem. Thanks for any help. Steve
