Greetings, One of the arguably most useful gestures for laptop users is still missing/broken on Firefox on windows. It's the two-finger swipe that allows to navigate forward or backward in history by swiping left or right.

This feature is present in Chrome and even Edge since many months, yet it has never worked on Firefox, on any of my windows devices.

I've been using Firefox Dev since 12+ months, keeping both it and windows 10 always up to date, the gestures never worked (yet they are activated in the about:config page, see attached images).

What's most disappointing is that the gestures work without any issue on the MacOS version of Firefox.


some useful info: Firefox version: 94.0b3 (latest as of today) Windows version: 21H1 build 19043.1266 (latest as of today)

If someone manages to get the two-finger swipe gesture to work on windows please let me know.

I hope this can get fixed soon, especially because the feature seems to be already built into Firefox, it just doesn't work in the windows release. In the meanwhile I'm switching to chrome

As of yesterday, when I make a line break in a Google Sheet cell,by using Ctrl Enter, the cursor moves down, however when I start typing, it types on the line above. In other words, the cursor no longer is on the new line. It's like the line break made a new empty row in the cell, but the typing continues on the previous line. I have: -re-installed a fresh Firefox, -started Firefox in safe mode, -tried it in Chrome (it works), -restarted, - tried on another, same model, computer (it works) -issue is in all my google sheets

I've got a Macbook pro and love using the swipe gestures for productivity but sometimes it can make certain websites (e.g. Google sheets) frustrating to use.

The issue is that the swipe right feature has 2 main functions on firefox:

1. Go backwards a page 2. Scroll left on the same page

It becomes an issue when I zoom into a slide/image/etc. and I just want to scroll left but it's interpreted as going back a page instead.

It would be ideal if there was a way to prevent the 'go back' (swipe right) feature for a second, thereby using the scroll function instead... this could be done by holding cmd and swiping right to disable the back page function. There is a similar app called Forky Slide Scrolling Stopper, which prevents the 2 finger scroll up/down from changing slides - it would be good to have something like this for the 2 finger scroll left/right.

My question is - is there an add on or app that allows this feature?

Recent changes seem to ignore the setting for a specific HOME page upon START-UP. Right now, the last page accessed before closing Firefox IS loading - not the setting of a specific HOME page - in my case, Google.com. I have cleared cache twice and no changes. So, e.g. - if I was on Facebook and close FF, the next start of Firefox opens now to Facebook. That setting is NOT enabled! Please advise/correct.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Hi,

I've recently moved PCs and I'm trying to import all my previous bookmarks to the new PC. The old PC was wiped completely to re-use the components in the new PC, however it was fully backed-up.

Previous to re-formatting everything, I made a Firefox account for easy bookmark transfer.

When I logged into the Firefox account on the new PC, no bookmarks synced. However, website history did sync.

In 'Settings > Sync > Manage Account', scrolling to the bottom of the page displays the name of my old PC, so Firefox does know that it exists. If all my bookmarks are stored in the cloud and not on my own hardware, why aren't they syncing?

Thanks for any help.

My Firefox keeps loading blank pages. I have to right click on it and choose reload. also while viewing facebook movies while its playing it freezes you can still hear sound but video freezes for 3 seconds then plays and will do it again a few minutes later. This happens every time there is a new release of FF. I have uninstalled FF and reinstalled it. Also started in safe mode and it seems to work but comes back later.

Firefox was working fine, printing for me, and then all of a sudden it stopped printing when I went to print from stamps.com. I've used that site many times and have never had a problem. I have refreshed it, and reloaded a fresh download of it. Other browsers work fine but not Firefox. I've looked at a lot of the "solutions" I could google but did not find one that worked. It's not just stamps.com, I can't print from any website.

I've run a virus scan no issues. (Malwarebytes) It is not a printer issue either, I have two printers connected, both work fine with other programs like Word. I'm at a loss, and will have to use Chrome (yuck) until I can get this resolved.

I see that it has sent "something" to the print spooler, but the spooler is just hung up. I can empty the spooler, but it takes quite a while.

I'm trying to login to Firefox on my new computer but I keep hitting a wall. A long time ago (like years at this point) I used a previous email address. I've since changed the main email and the back up email to different ones. I'm trying to sign in and it sends an email to my main email. I get the email, use the code, but it jumps to "incorrect password" and displays the very, very old email as the account I'm attempting to login to.

I've tried clicking on "use a different account" but it just restarts the entire process. I also tried to add a recovery key but it just keeps saying "try again in 15 minutes" even though I tried about 5 hours apart. I don't know why my sync still thinks I'm using an old email address when I've had it changed for years. This has happened before but I was always able to somehow get in and sign in.

Is there some way I can fix this?

Under normal circumstances Firefox appears to load web pages fine. As soon as I turn on Mozilla VPN and try to reload a browser tab I already have open, it behaves as though I am not connected to the internet. Other browsers do not experience this issue. Even after disconnecting from the VPN, Firefox only regains the ability to load web pages after restarting it.

I have tried using a private window with no add ons and there was no change. I have also tried refreshing Firefox. That does initially fix the issue but as soon as I close Firefox after refreshing, the issue returns. I would prefer if I didn't need to refresh Firefox every time I want to use Mozilla's VPN.

Hi i wanted to write this cause when ever i go watch a stream on twitch there's stutter and lag 24/7 on the stream and this happens only on Mozilla Firefox since 1 2 months . My connection is really fast and i tried clearing cache data history , or disabling hardware acceleration but nothing . To check if the browser or my pc/net was the problem i went on Edge and Google chrome and i kept both mozilla and the other browser open on the same twitch channel and only the Mozilla one was permanently stuttering and slow buffering . Is this issue fixable cause if its not i'm prob gonna swap back to Chrome .
