Following an update to the browser, I've lost the ability to keep webpages tabbed and visible when on other pages. The browser also conceals the Microsoft tasks bar at the bottom of the monitor. Is there a way to anchor the open pages and reduce the page so the task bar stays visible?

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

As of recently, after opening "Wetteronline.de" the whole page with all graphics is visible, but instantly switches and shows just text entries, only way down some scattered graphics and textes. This happens in Firefox; not in Chrome. In Firefox I disabled all add-ons one after another, deleted cache and cookies, but this did not help. How can I fix this problem?

Hi, I would like to know how to control whether my add-ons should open their tabs automatically. I have alot of add-ons, and once in a while, probably after updating between two periods of time when using Firefox, add-ons would open their about pages, settings, home pages, etc. Can you please tell me how to assign what add-ons can open their pages automatically? That should save me from some lags and also a bit of time spent. Thanks!

The issue: on all sites, whenever media with audio plays (either automatically, or when I click), the audio stops after 2-3 seconds. If it is video, the video continues to play without sound. When it is audio-only, such as bandcamp, the timestamp stops. Audio resumes playing if I rewind or manually move the timestamp handle (scrubber?) back. This must be repeated each time the media is paused. Audio does not resume playing if play and pause are pressed, or if the site is refreshed.

Troubleshooting steps attempted so far:

  • Tried a different browser. Microsoft Edge works just fine.
  • Allowed autoplay for both audio and video
  • Cleared cache, and ensured that cookies were allowed
  • Turned off all adblockers
  • Uninstalled flash
  • Refreshed firefox settings

I'm at a loss!

Has anyone else reported severe battery draining on a new M1 chipped MacBook Pro? I noticed that the battery was draining as quickly or quicker compared with the one in my old 2014 15" MacBook Pro. I checked Activity Monitor and saw that the CPU utilization for the Firefox WebExtensions process was consistently north of 99%, even while I was doing nothing.

I've switched to using Safari and I'm now getting the incredible battery life I expected having read all of the reviews for the new M1 laptop.

I've been using Safari (on battery, with the screen at full brightness) for over an hour now and it hasn't moved from 100% yet.

This morning it went from fully charged to below 20% in less than five hours with brightness at 50% or less for half of that time. I'm sure I can't be the only new MacBook user who has noticed this?

Please fix the problem Mozilla as I'd much prefer to use Firefox vs Safari but not if it kills battery time like this.

Guten Abend, ich habe ein Problem beim FireFox-Browser auf einem Amazon Tablett. Es wäre schön, wenn Sie mir Hinweise zur Fehlerbeseitigung geben könnten. Danke. Meine Frau und ich nutzen seit ca. 2 Jahren das oben genannte Tablett 'fire HD 10' von Amazon. Auf dem Tablett haben wir die FireFox App installiert. Sie funktionierte bis gestern ohne Probleme. Als wir das Tablet heute Abend wieder mit FireFox benutzen wollten bekamen wir die Absturz-Anzeige (wie im Bild). Als Erste Massnahme habe ich den Cash der FireFox App gelöscht. Dann das Tablett nach aktueller Software suchen lassen und die Software des Amazone-Tablett anschlissend aktualisiert. Der Fehler blieb. Abschließend habe ich dann noch die FireFox App deinstalliert sowie aktuell aus dem PlayStore von Google runter geladen und installiert. Allerdings bleibt der Fehler weiterhin bestehen.

=========================now in english===========================

Good evening, I have a problem with the FireFox browser on an Amazon tablet. It would be nice if you could give me some troubleshooting tips. Thank you. My wife and I have been using the above mentioned tablet fire HD 10 from Amazon for about 2 years. We installed the FireFox app on the tablet. It worked without any problems until yesterday. When we wanted to use the tablet with FireFox again this evening, we got the crash display (as in the picture). As a first measure, I deleted the FireFox app's cash. Then let the tablet search for the latest software and then update the software of the Amazone tablet. The mistake remained. Finally, I uninstalled the FireFox app and downloaded it from the Google PlayStore and installed it. However, the error persists.

I'm not sure how, but sometimes when closing firefox with or without a restart of the pc, the second tab of my last session dissapeared. The first tab is my mail and stays, but the second tab is sometimes missing. If I close now the browser and start the browser again, the second tab is still there, but today I didn't restart the pc but firefox was closed for a while, I am missing the second tab. The second tab I have now, was the third tab before.

I'm running Windows 10 (Version 2004) and firefox 83.0 (64-bit) and have 157tabs open at the moment.

Been watching streams for a while. Twitch.TV works perfectly well, Piczel.TV is alright too. I do however have constant issues with any kind of live stream when using Picarto.TV- It seems like the stream just doesn't want to load for long- it will work for a little but and then start an endless buffering cycle which can only be broken by refreshing the entire website, rinse and repeat. I tried cleaning my cookies once which didn't help. Using Firefox's installer to run a "fix" didn't help either, and a fresh install *did* work, but only for a little bit before it started happening again. The option in Picarto to switch the HLS player tech to mp4 doesn't work. Any advice?
