Miro.com is an online collaborative whiteboard. When using the mouse, the scroll wheel is used by the site to zoom in/out of the whiteboard. As of Firefox 88, the speed at which zoom occurs on this website when using the mouse wheel is much faster than in previous releases of Firefox, causing the zoom steps to be much too large too fast. This has made it difficult to use this site.

Note that I'm not talking about Firefox magnification zoom, but about how Firefox is passing mouse wheel information to the Miro.com website for use in their whiteboard zoom feature.

Other users on the Miro community board are reporting they fixed this issue by reverting to Firefox 87:

During searches, opening email or anything else I get these parts of pages that are blacked out. Some times they will go ways when scrolling but mostly I have to highlight a sentence, click and goes away.

I do not know how else to describe it.

I like the new features and way that Firefox works and have always enjoyed the security an anonymity.

Does not happen with other browsers. Computer is up to date and runs great, not that that should matter.

Firefox version. 88.0, Windows 10 up to date.

images attached.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

I have been a fan of the awesomebar for quite some time; tab selection using % enables progress after chaotic web surfing and bookmark searching using * circumvents the need of retracing already known websites. (I have removed suggestions and history though, I find that those are mostly in the way.)

One limitation for me as a programmer is that while searching for Python helps me find the correct bookmarks, including C in a search is not helpful, as a c anywhere in a bookmark will give a hit. This even goes for '.com'! The same problem occurs when searching for bookmarks in the bookmark library.

My suggested improvement would be to allow search terms to be interpreted narrowly. This could be done by adding quotes, for example "C" (single quotes could also work).

Is this already possible in some way? And if not, where would be the best place to suggest the improvement? [feedback page reads "Please check back soon"] ( and I'm not sure whether this suits the Bugzilla platform.

Firefox updated itself two days ago and now 'Bookmark this page' is no longer listed in the Bookmarks drop down menu. I want it replaced. Just as it was. LIKE THIS: Click on Bookmarks, select 'Bookmark this page' or Edit this bookmark' , select 'Done'. Then I am finished with that particular bookmark. I know all about the "bookmark star" procedure - not interested. The question is simply how to put 'Bookmark this page' BACK WHERE IT WAS? In the 'Bookmarks' drop down menu. Nothing else, just this one thing. I have read too many post with out seeing a solution to this exact question that I and others are asking. Thanks for anyone's help

Is there an option to get the old behavior back? When I'm browsing for reference images and I want to just have an image or video in a window I could just right click and use view image/video. Now it's open in a new tab.

You essentially just added one useless click to the whole thing which is me having to close the tab the image came from.

If you answer with, "You can just use copy image link and paste it in the same tab." You just turned what was right click then left click into right click, left click, move mouse over, click to highlight the address, ctrl+v

When I have to do this to hundreds of images every day, every single little click counts.

So, can I restore the old and better functionally? And really, when you do these changes, give an option to keep the old method or keep both.... Gesh...

Hello,


since the last automatic update of the Widevine Content Decryption Module (updated today, automatically) the plugin keeps crashing when I want to watch "TV" waipu.tv. I have already re-installed firefox etc, it just won't work.

I have submitted several crash reports, this is the latest: bp-7bc4b8a4-e59b-4f7e-a840-7c0720210422

See screenshot of "crashed"-notice below.

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

(Pop!_OS distro used) I use a handful of resources to monitor my laptop's resources. The attached image is from the htop command (note that I've been using the laptop at most an hour, and it was compltely powered off before. Unsure why it says such high times.). Over the past four-ish months, I've seen firefox's new-window command (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window) function very strangely. Two instances of the command randomly run for extended periods of time (anywhere from a few seconds to two or three minutes, often towards the longer end), taking up ~100% of the cpu usage for each given one second interval (the time my htop is configured to check). While I'm aware htop records cpu statistics extremely different than task manager (frankly, I'm not quite sure how it measures), this cpu spike takes place with other irregular fluctuations in my laptop, which says to me that the command is in fact doing something. When the cpu spikes occur, I see my cpu temperature rise up to 80 degrees Celsius, and it's frequency hit it's cap for only a handful of threads, while the rest stay completely unchanged.

To clarify the extent of the randomness when I say the commands run randomly: this happens without any pattern that I can identify. I've had anywhere from 1 to 10 tabs open, resting in the background from anywhere between a couple minutes to half an hour, and two new-window commands will run, unprompted, as described above. I've been scrolling through an article, and out of no where, the twin commands run. I've loaded up webpages and the commands have run. I've been watching videos, simply opened a new tab (ironic given the command name), just anything you can do on the web browser, and the commands have run. And there have been days where this issue doesn't happen at all. This can happen numerous times while I'm on firefox. It could happen once, followed by a lot of intervals of the commands running, or it could be a while before the next time it happens.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb to me is that, as I mentioned at the end of the first paragraph, I see one thread 'catch' and cause this spike. It's a random thread, it can be a different one each time this happens during a given session on firefox, but I've only every noticed it to be one thread.

Not sure what's up. I tried to be as detailed as possible since I could find anything about this on these forums.

I rarely ask for help and try on my own and frequently help others, but I have a problem that I cannot solve and need your help, please.

I have tried the typical things such as restarting, starting in safe mode, refreshing, reinstalling, uninstall and delete folders and profiles then re-install, uninstall and delete folders and profiles and remove all Mozilla/FF entries in the registry then reinstall. No plugins or addons installed.

I tried disabling my anti-virus software.

I have FF version 87.0 64 bit version and even tried with an older 32 bit version. My OS is Windows 10 version 20H2 OS Build 19042.928. Both are the latest versions at the time of this post.


Regardless of what I try, my problem below persists:

When I start FF it almost starts but hangs. I can see it listed in the Task Manager. There is a little activity with Memory and CPU usage for a few seconds then no more. I cannot End Task if I try. It will hang like this for hours. Eventually I will get the home screen. If I attempt to visit a website right away it hangs (two dots blinking left & right like a school bus in the tab). If I do not try to visit a website but wait for a few more hours it will usually connect and be OK. However, if I open a new tab or Private Window I have the same problem in the new one.

Once it is up and running it appears to be working normally except for the new tabs. I have been hibernating my computer with FF open rather than shut down so that I can use it the next day. However, after a number of hours or on another day it will suddenly hang again for an unknown reason. Then I reboot and start the procedure all over.

I have tried every fix I can think of for FF. The problem may be an issue with Windows, but Microsoft has no bulletins or fixes for this one. I have updated to the latest build/version but nothing has changed. Very frustrating.

Any suggestions beyond the things I have already tried would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I'm working on a project where we run Firefox in a container and I need to insert a cookie into the sqlite cookie DB to ensure it's available when Firefox is started. I have some script that runs before Firefox is started and know that I can create a profile on the command line e.g. `firefox --headless -CreateProfile foo` However this simply creates the profile dir and does not create the sqlite cookie DB or relevant tables. Is there a way to force creation of the cookie DB from the command line? Ideally, I want to create the Firefox profile & sqlite cookie DB at the point I build my docker image. The cookie would be inserted when the container runs, before Firefox is started. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Before April 21st, 2021 I never had any issues with playing videos on Disney Plus, Netflix, etc. But since Widevine updated I cant play any videos without Widevine crashing. I reload the page (as it suggests) and it still wont work. I refreshed Firefox and that didn't work. I also tried to chat with Widevine but their page said "Widevine is a technology provider and we do not provide support to end users. Please contact your application or service provider for support on your particular issue."

Does anyone know what I can do to solve this problem? I really appreciate your help!
