For the past week links i click on will randomly not open in the tab nor will it be able to refresh(its greyed out), I'll have to close the tab and click again and it will usually load that time.

I have already cleared the cache and cookies, refreshed AND re-installed Firefox and this problem is still occurring.

FireFox 128.0 (64-bit) is back to being a memory hog until everything slows to a crawl. Some releases were better and some are worse. I like FireFox but I am having a hard time getting my work done. Switching between different items slows to a crawl.

I have had my laptop for years, and I have used firefox for years. Roughly, in the last 2-4 months, all the sudden, opening up new youtube webpages, tabs, videos, takes a while, 5-20sec to fully load a new page, and when I open a new youtube tab, my laptop fan starts spinning loudly, for ~20-30seconds. Once the page is loaded its fine again. Basically opening up a youtube page is slow, and its acting like its same as playing a modern video game on my computer which is ridiculous. I have edge installed, although I rarely use it, and it does not have this problem at all, its fast, and laptop fan does not spin.

When attempting to submit payment information if I am placing an order online, I try to use the autofill method with my saved payment method and my laptop's biometric scanner. But the issue is even after using the biometric scanner or entering a PIN number, I still have to manually enter the payment information because the field does not autofill. What do I need to do in order to fix this? I have updated my payment information and ensured the information is correct.

I understand that changing the file extension of downloads to match the file contents is a protection feature but it is causing me issues on mobile.

I am trying to download .rosz files, they are essential .zip files with a custom extension. These files are generated from one web app and are going to be uploaded into another web app and the receiving app will reject files with the wrong extension. The current behavior changes the file to .zip and requires me to manually locate the downloaded file and rename it back to .rosz .

Is there a setting that I can change to prevent download file extention renaming? I understand the security issues it can present and am willing to accept the risks.

I'm on the android version of firefox.

I accidentally disabled the keyboard shortcut for media browsing. For example, I was able to fast forward by 10 seconds by tapping the right arrow on my keyboard, but this has now been disabled. I cannot figure out how to get back to settings to re-enable this feature (checked online, in Mozilla support pages and on Mozilla community)

I think I tapped Ctrl + left arrow to bring up the settings box when I accidentally disabled the keyboard shortcut. Any help would be appreciated

This problem is NEW ... I've been using Firefox with Bible Gateway for literally YEARS, and this problem has begun in the last two days. I tried to follow the advice under other occurrences of this problem to others, and couldn't ... I don't get into code that way!

All I know is that I can no longer simply open a tab, go to that site, and use it; once that error shows up, no navigation on the page is possible.

Idk whether this is a problem for Firefox, or for Bible Gateway. I've contacted them, too.

But ... what can I do?
