In the latest version (99.0 for 64-bit Windows), the "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands in the right-click menus are gone. They were available up to at least 88.0.1. Where did they go?

The attached screen shots are: - Right Click Menu on Page -- 88.0.1 - Right Click Menu on Tab -- 88.0.1 - Right Click Menu on Page -- 99.0 - Right Click Menu on Tab -- 99.0

I'm stuck at ver 88. Starting with 89 I seem to be limited to around 150 total tabs across all open windows (even if only one is open). Total lockup of the desktop (KDE in linux) It hadn't been a problem, I just shut off auto update.

Now websites are whining about me running an older browser and some are even refusing to let me in. So I thought ok, I'll run multiple instances and keep the total number of tabs low. 5 instances work fine, the 6th starts to act a bit flaky, 7+ is a total lockup of the desktop (KDE in linux).

Even if I can manage to kill the last instance, its corpse remains on screen.

So I'm back to ver 88 with no solution. Is there a way around these limits? When I'm doing development I often have more than 600 tabs open. Eventually some will get closed, but I can't very well get much done if the browser is just going to lock everything up.

Proton is crap. Low contrast high space and infuriatingly enlarged vs the old standard. Screens are getting larger but that means users are expecting more information on them not less. I actually reverted to either v88 over proton. Is the option to turn it off back yet or is still use custom css and hope they don't break that every update?

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Firefox will not update, but continuaaly load unstoppable popups suggesting I download and install a new copy. This is "Firefox for Acer". One other question about this was answered "I assume that you can ask this at the Acer support forum as they should know this best." wgich means, I suppose, that the responder doesn't knowm but likes answering questions.

Does anyone know? Is this why Firefox fails to update? Will re-installing eliminate the problem? Is there any way to stop the popups?

I received a Yahoo email which contained a set of 33 images, all of which display correctly in W10 and (pardon the expression) Edge. Attachment 0 shows 1 of the 33 images.

Of those 33 images, I can see only 13 using W10 and Ffx 88.0.1. The rest are blank spaces. Attachment 1 is one of the blanks.

Attachment 2 is the URL for one of the blanks. Attachment 3 is an error message that I hope might help to determine what's going on here.

What am I missing? Do I have my Ffx settings messed up? I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction...thanks!

The last issues I ran into with this section (news quiz), no matter which week I clicked on, it always and ONLY opened to one quiz from a couple of years ago. Open Slate to Slate News Quiz. Click on any week. There is text, but the news quiz never fills page.

I download Endnote .ris reference files every day, and have done for decades. Endnote supplies a parsing tool that imports the data into the database. But it has just stopped working. In the import dialog box, the message that comes up on downloading a ris file is: "what should Firefox do with this file?

  Open with Notebook (default)"

Well down the dropdown option list I can choose to open with Endnote, so I clicked on "Do this automatically for files .." then chose the Endnote option. Which works, but it doesn't stick. If I go to the Options page>Applications>ris, nothing comes up. If I choose >Endnote, the suggested option is to open every Text file with Endnote - not a good idea.

Has something gone wrong with Firefox or with Endnote settings? Thank you

I've been a long time Firefox user since around 2005 and have always enjoyed Firefox until now. This issue has been ongoing for over a year though. I never would have thought that a simple task as entering a web address in the address bar and hitting enter would become so difficult, though for a while now this seems to be the case and to the point to where I'm considering not bothering with the Firefox browser anymore. I do enjoy where Firefox is now in current development and the way it looks as well the great performance. However, when basic functionality such as typing in a web address and hitting enter becomes difficult all the aforementioned positives become less and less relevant. It seemed to all start when development came to redesign the appearance of the UI, not sure what version. Basically, what I come to experience now roughly 90 percent of the time I type a web address in the address bar and hit enter is the browser does nothing. Sometimes it takes 5 to 6 tries with having to put the mouse courser back into the address bar and hitting enter multiple times before the browser decides it want's to go the website. Same issue occurs when opening a bookmark in another tab, switch to the tab and the site isn't loaded, have to hit enter multiple times before the web address will begin to load. Seems also that any setting regarding tabs background loading isn't present anymore in the settings either. Same issue will occur when selecting a favorite that comes up while typing in the address bar.

Recently I had reinstalled my entire operating system and was hopeful that this issue would be resolved by doing so with a fresh install of Firefox too, though the issue is still present.

I have no add-ons or themes that modify the address bar, nor any search add-ons. In fact, this issue occurs with no add-ons installed at all. The only thing I can think currently is that it is an issue and or bug of some kind within the search and or address bar settings current design.

My settings here are attached as images.

Hello Firefox Team,

In the last time, i got error on firefox. firefox cannot display some websites. Firefox is experiencing a delay in responding.

For example myvideo: https://youtu.be/jILxKYqspew

Step 1: Visit : tmconsultancy.com or denetcilerymm.com.tr (any website) Firefox: waiting response Step 2: open edge and visit tmsconsultancy.com (fast response) . I have been experiencing this error for the past 1 year. I completely force uninstalled Firefox and clean installed.The problem was not fixed.

However, i do not use any plug-ins or virus programs(on firefox). This problem is very annoying.

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.
