Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Hi, in our city there is a blogger who every day writes interesting articles and asks his readers to comment on his blogs. I can go to his website and read the blogs, but when I send a comment, it doesn't get through. How can that be? I'm using Firefox version 86.0 (64-bit). I would be happy if someone could help me.

I have tried many of the suggestions to fix the message that appears on a yellow bar the say in effect "another program is slowing down your computer. It sure is. When I'm working on my eBay business, and the only program running is eBay. I get this message in between changing one task to another. It's extremely frustrating. And if I can't get this fixed I'm going to have to stop using Firefox. I have tried the "fix" to refresh Firefox. I'm using version 84 on my Windows 10 OS. I'm a very experienced user (since the 70's) but not a Techy. Bob

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

Hello,

Sorry if this is a re-post in a way but i needed help. Now, the issue is i am of course a big YouTube user and when i enter 'y', 'yt' or any other combination to get to youtube.com my web address bar always comes up with this website as my first preference for some reason?

https://yoursay.sa.gov.au/

Now, i have tried clearing my cache, website data, search history, cleared everything and even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. This site is most certainly not in my bookmarks. How do i permanently remove it form my auto fill data?

I have these stats if it helps:

Firefox version 68.0 64 Bit windows 10 Home Standard Browser Privacy

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

I've no idea since when my Firefox doesn't show highlighted code fences on any web pages. Specifically it happens inside the <textarea> tags. Anyone with an idea of the possible reasons?

I've tried to disable the add-ons one by one and inspect, nothing ever changed even when I disabled all my add-ons and meanwhile I refresh the page every time I disabled an add-on.

I added a few screenshots for comparison. Any help or tips are appreciated! Big Thanks!

With Firefox 86 it is no more possible to use a search keyword in the urlbar with an empty query string to open the corresponing web page. E.g. I type "g" for Google followed by <space> and the urlbar notices I want to perform a Google search. But pressing <enter> has no effect until I actually enter a string (other than whitespace) to search for. In previous version it was possible to just search for nothing to open the search page (like a shortcut to the search web page).

In Firefox 83, the old behaviour could still be restored by setting browser.urlbar.update2=false. This doesn't work anymore since version 86.

Is there a possibility to get the old behaviour back?

Hello,

I am unable to play certain video on Firefox version 86 on my Macbook Pro 13-inch, 2017, running Big Sur 11.3 Beta (20E5196f), which I just updated my system to today. These sites are working in Safari I tried installing the previous Firefox version, version 85, these sites worked on this version! This problem only occurs on Netflix, Prime and Disney Plus. Other video sites like Youtube and Crave TV are working. This same problem occurred a few days ago, before I updated my computer, but I was able to resolve it by clearing cookies and cache in firefox, this no longer works.

On Netflix, preview videos that appear when hovering over a selection do play, but when trying to play an actual title I get error code f7121-1331 On Prime I get a message saying We're experiencing a problem playing this video. For assistance, please go to www.primevideo.com/help. On Disney Plus I get error code 83

I have tried on the advice of other posts to clear cache and cookies, disable all add-ons, checking if certain media options are enabled in About:config, restarting my computer and firefox, and resetting Firefox twice. None of these have worked for me.

The only thing that worked was installing and using the previous Firefox version 85.

Dear Community,

I have problem with my Firefox version 86.0 (64-bit). I have Windows 10 20H2 64-bit operating system. Firefox can't load some websites. For example I can load https://allegro.pl/ but I have problem sometimes with this website: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php

If you go there and use F5 key on keyboard (refresh website) sometimes this can't load. On other browser I don't have this issue. This very frustrated me because I can't work. On Windows 10 1909 on older machine (another computer) I don't have this issue with my firefox (this sam 86.0 version). So this is probably problem only with Windows 10 20H2.


Steps to reproduce:

1) Open new tab and go here: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php 2) Log in to your account for Allegro website (without account you can't load website) 3) When website loads normally you must refresh this website (F5 key on keyboard) few times (you must be patient, sometimes this can take some time) 4) When website can't load or it's load partly you can see that this stops loading when it try connect to analytics.google.com so I think that it is very strange behavior.

On other browsers on Windows 10 20H2 version this website works without issue. Only with Firefox I have a problem. On Windows 10 1909 version on another machine I can't notice this issue. Also on Ubuntu I don't have any problems with this website with firefox.

Can you fix it? I can't work on my computer with Windows 10 20H2 system. I musted to switch to another browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge). I contacted with owner of the website but this is not the first problem with Firefox on Windows 10 20H2 so you should fix it. I remember that I had some similar problems on another websites but I don't remember what was address for these websites.

Actual results:

Sometimes I can't load this website on Windows 10 20H2 64-bit: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php

When website can't load or it's load in a part you can see in the bottom of the browser that this stops when it try connect to analytics.google.com so it is very strange behavior.

This can be not problem only with this website.

Expected results:

I should load this website always: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php


I hope that you can fix it.
