Since upgrading to Firefox 79 many Web pages are noticeably, irritatingly slower: Slow to load, and especially for interactive pages (Javascript, etc), slow to respond. Some are teeth-grindingly, give-up-on-Firefox slow.

I've downgraded twice to Firefox 77 and the slowness went away, but that isn't a choice anymore on my work computer.

Please get rid of whatever "improvements" have ruined version 79 and restore the performance of my preferred browser.

Hi I've been searching for a solution for this problem for quite some time and it is starting to annoy me. Every time I try and search for something instead of using google it switches to yahoo? It didn't do this beforehand. I've seen some solutions on here like doing Ctrl + Shift + a and I've done it but it brings me to a blank tab. It's like whatever it is doesn't want me to remove it. I also tried refreshing Firefox and that didn't help either.

Hi, I have 5 or 6 extensions installed, they continue to disappear from my bar and cannot access them normally (Lastpass is the one that I use the most). I'm not sure what to do. Everytime I refresh Firefox the extensions are viewable for a day or 2, then go away again.

Thanks

My browser despite being set to English is displaying pages in Tegulu. This seems to be an issue relating to how FF and Google are interfacing. For example the NYT is only in English, but any Google search results are in Tegulu. Any suggestions?

I AM A 68 YEAR YOUNG FEMALE, I AM DISABLED, AND PLAY SUPERCITY ON FACEBOOK, IT IS MY ONLY SOURCE OF FRIENDS AND ENTERTAINMENT. SUPERCITY GAME RECENTLY CHANGED FROM ADOBE FLASH TO HTML5 (NOT REALLY SURE WHAT THAT MEANS). BUT I CAN NO LONGER GET INTO THE GAME TO PLAY, AND THEY ONLY GIVE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CHROME BROWSER. I REFUSE TO SWITCH TO THAT BROWSER. I DON'T REALLY KNOW MUCH ABOUT COMPUTERS OR WHAT A FLASH IS OR DOES, OR HTML5 FROM A HOLE IN THE GROUND. I COULD SURE USE SOME HELP PLEASE, IN LAYMANS TERMS, AND LIKE ONE STEP AT A TIME. I AM RUNNING THE NEWEST VERSION OF MODZILLA, NOT EVEN SURE WHERE TO LOOK TO FIND THE VERSION. I RUN WINDOWS 10, PURCHASED AN HP AT COSTCO IN 2018, ITS A DESK TOP. I KNOW HOW TO GET TO INTERNET SETTINGS, AND THATS ABOUT IT. THANKS, CHARI

With many websites I am experiencing overwritten text on page to the point that often it is not possible to read what is there or click accordingly - see sample image below. Already reduced security level to 'basic', but that does not solve problem. Is it just a setting? On Chrome all these websites work fine but I still prefer to use Firefox.

Windows 10 x64

Help appreciated.

Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

I just got the Firestick, mainly because it allows you to use a web browser (as opposed to Roku). Apps display fine. But Firefox is so big that I only see the middle of the window. I can't even get to the "hamburger" section, nor the top bar to see if it's running in maximized. I'm assuming it's running as an app, though, because I do have the option to request a desktop site (same problem with that.)

Is there some setting that I'm missing? I've seen the stuff about holding down the menu key and hitting the rewind button, but that does nothing. And, when I hold down the menu key, I see the various options (such as installing tabs), but nothing about shrinking the screen size.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Question, My security preferences says my settings are controlled by my organization. This is a personal win 10 installation. Also third party cookies are re-enabled every time I run firefox according to a spybot scan. My linux installations seem to give me full control without the controlled by organization message. I'm guessing it has something to do with microsoft. I have reinstalled firefox twice without syncing to my account with the same result. Just wondering if you have seen this before. Thank you!!
