I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. Never! I uninstalled Firefox, reinstalled it. It still does not work. I've turned off all add-ons, it's still not working. The error has been present for 2 or 3 years! I also used a whole lot of tabs managers but not even one solved the problem, managers don't even see these tabs! In my case, Firefox is stable, pages open, so what makes it impossible to add or save tabs? I don't want to lose my open tabs. I searched all the help pages, tricks and it still doesn't work, nothing, nothing at all, not even reinstating a computer or anything else won't fix the problem. I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! This is unique (super-bug)!

I'm gettin' worried about some privacy issues and I'm not sure if the behaviour I want in a browser exists on Firefox.

Right now I'm using Firefox, it remembers my session and the sites I'm logged in, doesn't remember history. I have my Firefox account connected, my bookmark toolbar open, and I use BitWarden to store my passwords.

When I sign-out of Firefox, it doesn't delete the bookmarks.

I actually stopped using the sync function because I thought it was secure to open my account on my phone, but when I log out of my account, all the bookmarks remain there, which kinda defeats the purpose.

Is there a way to have a sort of "nuke it" button?

I want to be able to store ALL my data (session, bookmarks, logins) behind ONE password, and have them disappear when I log out.

I'm just a regular user but I think it's weird that Firefox doesn't do this. It's as if my e-mails remained visible when I log out of my Outlook account.

Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

This problem has been around since the latest version of the old version, and has carried across into the new version. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work with Google Translate on linux. I have tested in other browsers and it they all work fine. Firefox on Windows also works fine, this problem seems specific to linux.

When you press any of the Ctrl combinations it simply deselects everything and moves the cursor to the end of the text. Mouse works, but it's not practical if you are cutting and pasting all day long.

Site: https://translate.google.com Firefox version: 89.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 20.04

Google Translation is critical to my work so my current solution is I no longer use Firefox. I hope that someone knows of a quick fix, or if it's a bug it's easy to fix as I'd hate to permanently move away from Firefox for something like this.

Thanks!

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

When printing emails and webpages in Firefox, the font is always huge. I mean HUGE (40pt??).

I have tried so many things (changing scale/print preview settings, troubleshooting from the Firefox menu, checking for software/driver updates, turning the printer/computer (Windows 10 laptop - new) off, checking printer settings in some weird config menu in Firefox, changing the default font size/zoom (this changes how I see it but not how it's printed) ARGH!!!!!)

NOTHING WORKS. Where there is a forum or help tip, I've tried it. Where it has worked for others, it does not work for me. Chrome works fine. Printing to PDF works fine.

Aha, you say, it must be my printer (HP smartank 450)! Well the nice folk at HP have spent hours trying to fix this and have no clue. I am about to give up on Firefox. Can anyone help??

Hi all,

I'm trying to automatically configure Firefox using the policies.json file, but I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

I've created /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/policies.json with this content: {

 "policies": {
   "Homepage": {
     "URL": "https://www.google.com/",
     "Locked": false,
     "StartPage": "homepage"
   }
 }

}

The file and directory permissions allow for read by everyone.

However, when I restart Firefox, I don't get google as my homepage.

What else can I check?

TIA,

Mike.

Hello,

since the recent update to version 90.0 I noticed that certain websites (youtube, facebook, spotify) won't load at all. I just get a blank screen. Additionally on instagram I can't see any images or videos.

At first I tried to open these websites in another browser (MS Edge) and there everything works just fine.

To solve my problem I already tried a lot of different approaches, but nothing has helped so far. Here is a overview of everything I tired so far: - deleted the cache and cookies (per Firefox as well as with CCleaner) - deactivated and later deinstalled all my add-ons - started Firefox in Troubleshooting-Mode - used the feature to clean Firefox - completely deinstalled and reinstalled Firefox - disabled and deleted my anti-virus software - temporarily stopped Windows Defender Firewall - used new profiles with the about:profiles menu - used different programs I already had installed (avira, Windows Defender, spybot S&D) to scan for viruses, trojans or malware. And I also used the ones Mozilla recommends on this site: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware -> nothing was found apart from a few tracking cookies

Now I am at my wit's end and don't know what else I could do get my Firefox to work properly again. I hope someone more knowledgeable than me can help me out to find a solution.

Best regards and thank you for your help Andreas

I am running RHEL 7 and KDE4 with Firefox Nightly.

Firefox will not use KDE/Qt dialog boxes or system applications. For example: when showing the downloaded file list (Ctrl + Shift + y) and clicking the folder icon to show the file's location, firefox will freeze for several seconds before opening a window in Nautilus.

I have found discussions of this problem that span seemingly a decade without a simple step-by-step guide or an updated solution. Answers range from: editing =mimeinfo.cache= file for the =inode.directory= line, editing items in =defaults.list= file; setting the =GTK_USE_PORTAL=1= variable (somewhere) and then changing various =about:config= settings.

It's just confusing and exhausting tracking this down. Is it possible to get firefox to play nicely with KDE? Nothing that I have tried so far seems to have worked, but I'm honestly not sure where this setting would live, or magic bash incantation I need to run.

I know this seems minor, but having just switched back over to firefox to chrome, it seems very jarring seeing the GTK dialogs that do not play nicely with the rest of my desktop/workflow (i.e., I do not want to start a Gnome vs KDE flamewar, but rather: I'm used to dolphin and how it works and make heavy use of the embedded terminal within dolphin windows or drag&drop files into the Qt open dialog box which "drops" as a file path ... I have no idea what happens if I drag something into the GTK open dialog box)

So in eBay when viewing items and then clicking on link (drop down box with multiple options or actual link on page) nothing happens, not added to watch list and no movement on page. Works fine in Chrome. Somehow after loading in Chrome the links worked, however going to another page the links became unresponsive again. Want to stay with Firefox but am nearly about to dump and return to Chrome. have had other issues with Firefox not rendering buttons for continuing form completion on other sites, and then transfer to Chrome and all is good, with no change or additional information needing to be provided (just in case the page was asking for info but Firefox didn't recognise need). Very frustrating. Have attached screen shots of buttons eBay page in Chrome & Firefox.
