I have cleared all my history in every way I can think off. Then I set Firefox to not remember anything. I really do intend for Firefox to not track and log my browsing habits. After these settings it appears to fix the "New Tab" screen (it now populates with generic icons) but if you dismiss one of the generic icons, Firefox will immediately populate the icons with my actual browsing history.

My Sync is set for Add-ons (which Themes is a part of), Bookmarks, Options, across (5) Windows 10 laptops and (1) Windows XP SP3 desktop. Everything syncs perfectly in all of the devices except Themes. There is one same theme for all of the devices. However, the theme in the Windows XP SP3 desktop CANNOT be changed because none of the currently available themes function in Firefox 52.9, the last version that works with Windows XP SP3. Is this preventing Themes from syncing in the Windows 10 devices? I presently change to one same theme manually in each of the Windows 10 devices, but I am looking for a workaround to make Themes sync in the Windows 10 devices.

Is this a setting to toggle?

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.

With the most recent version of Firefox (80.0.1 64-bit), the free videos at cbs.com no longer play, even with AdBlock turned off. That wasn't the case with earlier versions of the browser. However, everything at abc.com, nbc.com, YouTube, and Netflix play as always. I contacted CBS about this matter but, after a four-week wait, have not had a response. Fortunately, I can watch the free CBS content if I use Google Chrome and/or Microsoft Edge. Because of that, I wonder if the problem lies with Firefox and not CBS. None of the so-called solutions I've read here at Mozilla Support--regarding the playing of videos--has worked.

Intermittent tab crashes when opening a new tab and auto-disabling of extensions as a result

I'm not very tech-savvy and not a native English speaker, so please bear with me :)

Now to my problem:

Recently my tabs started crashing occaisionaly. The tab crashes seem to only appear when it's a new tab while tabs that were already open remain stable and don't crash. However if a new tab crashes, it disables my extensions automatically for all tabs, i.e. those tabs that were already open and perfectly functioning and any new tab that I open after the crash. When I say "disable", I don't mean that the toggle in the extension settings is moved to "disabled", it's more like the extensions just stop working despite being set to "enabled".

When reloading the tabs the extensions keep not working. Closing the browser and re-opening it solves the problem but only until I run into another crashing new tab.

I've checked about:crashes but there are no crash reports. When the "Gah! Your Tab Just Crashed" screen appears, there's no option to send a report, I can only close the tab or restore it. I also can't seem to find a pattern in the crashes other than them happening when opening a new tab. It doesn't look like the number of open tabs has an influence on the crashes. Not every new tab crashes.

Sometimes no scolling in active Firefox window

Hello,

I'm using the Logitech M705 mouse with Logitech Options Driver v.8.20.329 under Windows 10 Home 2004 (19041.450) and I have the problem that, from time to time, in the Firefox (always up to date) window the scroll wheel doesn't work as long as the window is active. If I activate another window and move the mouse only over the Firefox window, I can scroll there. As soon as I click into the Firefox window (and activate it), the scrolling wheel doesn't work anymore. Sometimes just opening and closing Logitech Options solved the problem, sometimes it helped to stop all Logitech tasks, but most of the time I had to restart the computer.

I've tried different versions of Logitech Options as well as of Logitech SetPoint, if they could be installed. But the problem kept occurring. (I'm back tothe last Logitech Options.)

Since the problem doesn't affect any other application, Logitech support says, that it must be a Firefox problem.

I would appreciate help that can permanently disable the problem. Because it is very annoying when it occurs.

I can't intentionally cause the problem. But let me know, if there's a way to provide some kind of log file.

Thanks a lot!

With kind regards Michael.

Hello,

If I open Youtube/Amazon/Reddit, basically any site and go to type in the search bar, the entire tab lags out. I can still move between tabs, but I cant interact with the tab that I typed in, and it will eventually catch up with the letter I typed.

This started yesterday. I tried working in safe mode, resetting firefox to default settings, and reinstalling entirely.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Screen Keyboard disappears after about 1 second. How to keep it on screen?

This happens only in Mozilla Firefox, not in Chrome or Edge, or any other apps that I use. Therefore neither I nor Microsoft Tech Support thinks that this is a Microsoft or Microsoft Surface issue.

Can you help me to have the screen stay up until I close it, as it does on all other apps?

Thanks,
