I am trying to sign up to fire fox on my new think pad. I had fire fox on my old mac that is 12 years old and near end of life. I tried to create using my email address that resides on my old mac and setting up a new account with the password shown as high security password and then it asked for the code that was sent to my old mac with the email address that is the same that I'm trying to create on new think pad .I was able to get the code and when Ientered it a message appeared stating problem. I retrieved the code within3 minutes of it being sent . what do I need to do to get set up on my new think pad?

Firefox won't stay my default browser. Every time I sign on after rebooting MS changes the default to I don't know what. It doesn't say what is the default. It wants edge I guess but I deleted the entire edge app and all its dlls. So how do I make the choice through the "set defaults" settings permanent?

When I try to view a pdf in the browser, Firefox downloads it first. I went into about:config and changed to browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir = true just to get it to stop downloading to a specified folder, but now it downloads in tmp directory leaving me with the same issue of pdf's piling up on my computer just to view a pdf in the browser.

This never used to be an issue. I do not want to automatically download every single pdf I view on the internet. Is there some way that Firefox can simply render the pdf instead of downloading it?

Not sure when the problems (slow and failure to launch) started. Had been using Firefox for years until a coupler of months ago. Tried to use support for help but nothing worked. Started using Chrome more often. Now I use it exclusively. Somehow, I suspect the combination of my use of Yahoo's NordVPN and AOL's Malwarebytes, somehow interfered with Firefox.

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

Hello! As of recently (within the past couple months), I was able to go on Petco.com from a desktop. But now, every time I try, the website doesn't load correctly. It jumps on and off about 100 times a minute and never stops. This does not happen on all other browsers. Something is wrong somewhere. When trying to log into Petsmart.com from a desktop, something different happens. It does completely load but when I try to log in, it will not log me in! I am able to log in on all other browsers. The third website, Rakuten.com, same thing happens like Petsmart.com . It loads but when trying to log in Rakuten.com I get: Oops. There was a problem. Please refresh page and try again. BUT AGAIN, I am able to log on on ALL OTHER BROWSERS. Is there a fix for this for Firefox? Please let me know if you can fix this or this is the way it will be for these websites. I have been using Firefox for years and like it the best! Never had this problem. Thanks!

I have spellcheck as you type turned on and it works in a search bar. I cannot get it to work in a webmail window. I have tried with Yahoo Mail (for a friend) and IONOS webmail with one of my own accounts. Neither work. BUT using the same accounts with Chrome I CAN check spelling in email windows as I type. This problem hasn't been raised for some time but I have noticed old posts that give options that didn't work. I don't want to get my friend (who is elderly and easily confused) to convert to Chrome but will have to bite that bullet if a solution isn't available.

In trying to solve my problem, I am going from bad to worse! Embarrassing! Screenshot of Chinese character issue is attached. Also, when I try to sign into Firefox from that page - https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/hi-IN/questions/1381354 - I am blocked from signing in. Somehow I am signed in now, but not sure how. duh! So first, the Chinese characters I need to solve, THEN have a question about an issue with mailto - no gmail default option. I have legacy handlers downloaded, kindly provided by jscher2000. Thank you! Do I drag his legacy handlers into my profile, if I am able to do so? I have tried all other suggestions on this problem. I really hope not to have to start anew with Firefox, because I have years of settings I am afraid I will lose. (Know it is doable, but I am a coward, as well as stupid, apparently.) Thanks in advance.

I have tried watching videos through chrome and other browsers by searching something via duck duck go and watching that video on duck duck go, and it works on other browser so it must be specific to firefox.

Whenever I try to watch a video, in the drop down bar firefox select to mute audio for some reason. I then select 'allow audio and video' and refresh the page but the video is still muted for some reason. This also happens when I try to use other video sites. This has only started to happen recently in the past two days (and yes I am updated to the latest version of firefox).

1. YouTube video lags too much (which less happened in Microsoft edge) My machine is dual core & 4gb ram with a igpu called intel Q45/Q43 but i think 720p should be not lagging in this pc. I always can switch browser but i love fire fox syncing thing that's why im trying not to shift. But, if Mozilla won't fix my problem then i had to shift it. some days ago like 6months ago or long ago mozilla fixed firefox video playback by a update and it was really great and worked for me. 720p was working really fine. but now on recent update... it really lags too much.

2. fire fox becoming heavy, we all know chrome is memory hungry and uses very much ram, but i compared firefox to chrome before it was true firefox used less ram then chrome. but nowadays firefox uses much ram then chrome which is really wierd so fix it aswell.

3.some times facebook photos do not show and shows a text" a man standing with an umbrella"

4. please more optimize for a low end pc bcz I & many other people can't even afford mid sepc PC.

I loved firefox for a long, i don't want to leave it! So, please Mozilla fix my problem. ._.

I have to search for a lot of entries in a long page, click on them to another window, do something (fill in a syllabus) and then go back to the long page and change the next search hit.

When I return to the long page the search in page is remembering where I am in the number of searches shown at the bottom of the page (e.g. 19/34) but when I click on the down button, instead of going to 20/34 it jumps back to 1/34 so then I have to press the down button 20 times to get to the next search hit.

Is there any way around this, so that I can just jump to the next search hit without having to press the down button 20 times?

I thought it might be the fact that the search is off screen but that is not it. It is the fact that I have left the page so the focus has been forgotten (except as the number 19/34 on the search in page bar at the bottom).

Is this a bug?

Basically.

I see a lot of options on how to disable Javascript context menus on sites, for purpose.

I want the opposite - certain sites, most notably Google Workspace and Nextcloud, have a very useful Javascript context menu for things like tweaking format or renaming files.

But when I right-click in Firefox, the browser's own context menu pops up and overlaps with the site's, making it nearly unusable. (Pressing escape to dismiss the menu has a 50% chance of also dismissing the site's)

Any way to disable the context menu? Bonus points if it can be done on a per-site basis.

About three months ago, I changed the AO3 site skin to the Low Vision option, because I wanted to see if I could fix the then minor issue of not being able to see bold with my screen-reader, NVDA, when reading fics on the site. Some of the bold I knew to be there because I had personally put it in.

When I changed the skin, I was dismayed to find I could not only still not see bold, but I could no longer see italics with NVDA either. The AO3 sidebar menu was also tucked away behind a dropdown button, but I could open that up and get to the controls, so I didn't mind that so much. The formatting, however, posed a real problem, since italics are used for, among other things, emphasis, telepathic speech, and the speech of Pokémon in fanfics featuring humans who can understand Pokémon. So I definitely wanted this problem fixed.

I thought I could simply change the site skin back, but to my further dismay, switching back to the Default skin did not restore my former view of the site's pages. I began trying other things, seeking advice from other tech-savvy acquaintances after I'd exhausted all the possible fixes I could think of to no effect. Here is a list of everything I've already tried:

  • As mentioned before, changing the site skin back with the buttons on the site
  • Soft/Hard-Refreshing the page.
  • Logging out of and back into my AO3 account to artificially end the session.
  • Restarting the computer, and NVDA, by extension.
  • Disabling each of the three extensions I have in Firefox, just in case one of them had caused the issue.
  • Viewing the site while logged out to see if that made a difference.
  • Cleared browser cache, and when that failed to help, also cleared specifically the AO3 cookies.
  • Created a clean Firefox profile with no settings changed and no extensions added, pasted url of one of the pages I was using as a test into the address bar. Still no formatting visible.
  • Viewed page in Incognito mode.
  • Briefly thought I had a solution when I found the Page Styles submenu in the View menu, set the page to No Style. Got my old sidebar back, but not the formatting, and lost even that change after a refresh. Not ideal solution.
  • Downloaded the portable version of Firefox, opened it and pasted in a url again. Still no formatting.
  • Reluctantly, opened AO3 in Google Chrome. Could see all the formatting with NVDA when logged out, and when I logged in, could still see the formatting.

I also discovered Reader View while testing some of these things, and this allowed me to read the text of a fic or chapter with all its formatting, but that view doesn't include the Author's Notes, or the comments, and that sacrifices some of the nuance of those because I don't see the emphasis on any words/phrases without the formatting.

I have contacted the AO3 support team, but they are just as confused as I am and don't know what could have happened. They say they haven't changed anything on the site that they could pinpoint as causing this problem.

I have tried asking on the BlindTech email list I'm subscribed to, which is where I was given the link to Portable Firefox, but I have exhausted all their ideas as well, some of which were included in the above list.

Now I come to you. Please, if you can shed any light on what might have caused this problem, I would deeply, sincerely appreciate it.

I am trying to do a print of a PDF. I can see the whole image on the screen. But, when I print it, all I get are lines. I then copied the link page for the PDF and used it in OPERA Browser. NO PROBLEMS. It did print fully the way it looks on the screen.

No wonder I am again going to delete FIREFOX and go with a different browser. Firefox is having too many problems and I already have enough headaches without Firefox help.
