Hello, this appears to be a Firefox-exclusive problem as any other browser used will fix the issues listed below. However, when I am using Firefox, the following happens:

  • I am unable to like or retweet anything, and cannot follow any accounts. Attempting to do so resets them if I refresh or click off the tab.
  • Notifications do not go away even when I view them
  • Any tweets I have cannot be deleted
  • Any info on my profile cannot be changed
  • I cannot log out

I've tried multiple ways to fix this, including clearing my cache, running in Safe Mode, and removing my saved login. None of these have worked, unfortunately. I've reached out to Twitter Support, but soon realized I wouldn't hear back about specific problems at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

I have version 75.0 of firefox. I was browsing as normal and it suddenly locked up. If I type in the address bar then search suggestions appear but nothing loads in the main window. Non of my favourites load. Clicking the new tab button doesn't load a new tab. The menu button opens but the options don't load. I have tried uninstalling. I have removed any sign of mozilla / firefox from my program files and program files x86. If I right click on the main window, the menu that appears has pretty much every option you could imagine. theirs so many option that it scrolls off the screen. on one occasion my laptop blue screened (which it doesn't normally do) but when it came back on firefox worked again until I turned the laptop back on again the next day and it was broke again

When I download almost any type of file, Firefox nicely asks whether I would like to always save the file, or always open it with some program. But for .jpg files, it makes a blanket, hard-coded assumption that I do not want to preserve my choice. I cannot add .jpg to the list of actions in the preferences. The authors of the browser forcibly mandate that a .jpg download must go to a popup, and the user's preferred action cannot be maintained internally.

This is a mistake. I realize someone thought it was a very rational idea. it is not. This is a bug.

How can I work around this mistake in the Firefox design?

I'm trying to figure out what on earth is wrong with this software. After installing the latest version, unbeknownst to me, after an hour or two of usage the browser fails to connect to any website, at all. Upon closing and re-opening the browser, I'm prompted that "you've launched an older version of Firefox" my bookmarks and history is corrupted, I need to create a new profile. Once the browser actually opens, I check the version, it's now reverted back to 87 where, it begins this absurd cycle all over again, downloading and installing 88.01.

What is this, only compatible with 20h2? My system does not yet have this.

In order to stop this madness. I've removed it, installed v74, threw a policy.json file together to block this from updating itself.

The drop-down list with known usernames and passwords extends until below the screen if there is a sufficient number of usernames stored. The funny thing is that the list is scrollable by mouse and arrow (up/down) keys, so it wouldn't be necessary to extend the list that far down. Just until the lower boundary of the current firefox windowwould have been sufficient.

The result is that I can't see (nor select) the usernames that are listed below the screen.

Firefox 75 64 bit on Fedora 32.

I hope this description was clear enough as I'm hesitant to include a screenshot showing all usernames involved on those site.

For anyone who wonders why so many logins: it's a list of email adresses currently in use in a webmail service.


Thanks.
