On a certain webpage the behaviour of CRTL + left click vs. right click -> open in new tab is deviating. I've tried it with turned of addons and in different versions of firefox. (It is annoying because it overrides the current tab and i have to restart the listing of podcasts)

https://www.mdr.de (for example check out the podcast episodes here https://www.mdr.de/nachrichten/podcast/kekule-corona/index.html ) CTRL + left click = mostly opens in the same tab right click menu = works fine

The firefox installation on my desktop is not able to render anything.

Even the about:preferences window is not able to show anything both under my account and a new account I made. I even attempted to update to a new version of my distro (Pop OS) in an attempt to fix it.

My Firefox account is able to do a sync (shows up in the dropdown) so it does not have to do with proxies. Chromium also works fine.

I would rather not have to use Chromium so any help will be appreciated. I have tried running firefox in safe mode and doing a "Refresh".

Reddit comments textbox shows duplicate text after pasteing When creating a comment (new or reply), the input textbox shows duplicate text. So what ever is pasted, it appears twice. If I post the comment anyway, only one copy of the text appears in the posted comment. It only seems to happen if I paste more than one line of text so maybe the CRLF at the end of line one has something to do with it. See attached image.

I tried the same operation with Chrome, and it does not have this duplicate text problem. So I'm guessing it some problem with the input textbox implementation in firefox.

Is this a known problem? Anyone else seeing this?

Since 88.0.1 all Amazon Prime Video content displays this message: "Your browser does not support High-Definition playback due to content restrictions. Please update your browser for the best Prime Video experience".

I've tried turning off vpn, adblocker, and set tracking protection back to 'standard', nothing helps.

I'm on W10 1909 Home which is technically not supported by MS as from this week so I did consider that as a possible (but unlikely) reason for it. However, the content plays fine in MS Edge. The content also plays fine from a laptop running Chrome on 1909 Enterprise (similar build to mine albeit not out of support yet).

I see widevine was updated in 88.0.1 - could this be the issue?

Thanks

Hello

My computer crashed two days ago. Luckily, I phoned HP help, had the computer refreshed, and miraculously everything reappeared and nothing was lost. Even, the other two browsers on my computer are back and running well. The only one exception was my Mozilla Firefox browser, which happens to be the one I use over 90% of the time, and most importantly , the only one that has my bookmarks. I have read the Mozilla help messages, and although it seems they suggest refreshing the Firefox browser, it seems to me the instructions are applicable only if I have access to it -- which I do not understand, since the point is that I have no access whatsoever to it when I click the icon on my desktop. I was thinking of downloading Firefox anew, but fear I may loose my bookmarks. I am not that consumer savvy and do not quite understand the details of what is suggested in the Mozilla Support page. The computer I use is a desktop HP Envy 700, 7 years old, and I have Windows 8.1. Can you help. Thank you.

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

I use an iMac with 3 displays as follows:

[1080p] - [1080p MAIN] - [2048x11152 Retina]

I use all 3 displays for browser windows but primarily the centre one.

When I drag a Firefox tab from the 1080p screens to the Retina screen, the UI is way too small to work with. All other applications seem to scale the UI properly though.

I'm attaching screenshots of: 1. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the 1080p display (both have suitable UI sizes) 2. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the Retina display (Firefox's UI is too small)

Is there any way to resolve this short of increasing the Firefox UI scale globally (which would take too much space on the 1080p screens)?

I'm using: MacOS 11.2.3 Firefox 88.0

thanks! Dean

This is a weird one. I would appreciate help. Please read carefully before responding....I am not a newb

Connected my new XPS laptop for the first time to my monitor. Everything looks fine (Windows 10, Chrome, other programs) EXCEPT for Firefox. In Firefox, all the text looks grainy, obviously not right. I disabled all my extensions, REFRESHED/RESET the browser, with no improvement.

But when I opened Firefox's troubleshooting mode, the browser immediately improved, became crystal clear. Also, when I took a screenshot to post here, the screenshot of the text appeared crystal clear as well. So it's definitely not the monitor.

Again, I've refreshed Firefox, and turned off all my extensions. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still seeing grainy text. Troubleshoot mode says it turns off "extensions, themes, and custom settings" --what else does it turn off?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, s.

For a couple of days I cannot get Firefox to run normally again. It is stuck in a weird looking state as showed in the screencap attached. It opens and I can click on some buttons from the interface but I cannot close it or enter settings, cannot browse or anything, it opens but its functionality is completely broken... I suspect this is following a recent windows update but I'm not sure...

Tried starting it in safe mode and refreshing the browser but it did not work. about:config does not work. I can type in the address bar but when I hit enter nothing happens.

Any suggestions of how could this be fixed without reinstalling it?

Thanks.

I got an email with a .docx attachment, and when clicked attachment I can view in FF.

Downloaded, and clicking file and open in FF ends in endless loop asking to open, if FF selected. Seems like mime type not being detected and processed from FF directly but does from webmail.

Same action with a PDF, image files works great.

Firefox is acting as if it is receiving the "scroll up' signal from the mouse wheel continually - even when the mouse is turned off, and not inside actual web pages. I can scroll up and down inside the page normally. However, if I mouse over the tabs, they continually scroll: if I hold down ctrl, it zooms without any other input: I can't use my search bar, because it acts like I'm scrolling and closes the 'do your search' bit. I have run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, same result. I have refreshed Firefox, no change. I have verified the mouse drivers. I've poked at the options. I am out of ideas! Windows 7, version 88.01 (64bit)

Firefox is having trouble loading certain pages, including with Facebook messenger but also a bunch of other sites. It'll just stop loading despite that the address is still in the toolbar and the screen is still white. If I refresh a few times, maybe go to a different part of the same website and navigate from there, I do always manage to get there, but not sure what the problem is. This problem is new this week, and I think came from either switching internet providers earlier this week or trying out "Hopin" the next day, a video conferencing platform that my computer/internet totally couldn't handle. (I didn't notice the problems before trying Hopin but perhaps I didn't notice that first day.)

I have cleared my cache and cookies, and have also tried (following the advice of another answer on the same issue) renaming the Firefox program folder and installing Firefox again. I'm on Windows 10, 64-bit HP laptop. My extensions are uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, Malwarebytes, Honey, Facebook Container, and Colour -- but all of these I had long before this issue started.

Something strange happening with my Firefox for a few months, you can see the screens below. Letters disappear (but visible under selection or Ctrl+A), images are broken (but totally fine after being saved on PC), and all these acid green and pink parts make internet surfing a challenge. Refreshing pages doesn't help.

I tried deleting and reinstalling Firefox anew, without all plugins and stuff but the problem still was there. Cleaned the system with CCleaner, checked with ESET Internet Security. Google Chrome, Windows file explorer and all other programs are totally fine.

Please help!
