i have one url that everytime I click on the tab, or close it completely, and type it in again, it always opens up at 30% zoom.

I can get rid of it easily by clicking on the 30% in the url window but it is completely annoying.

I am not sure how i did it in the first place and i am wondering how to get rid of it, or at least change it so it doesnt come back.

This is BEYOND excusable.

I opened up FF today, from a nice new update, to see that there are now paid ads that will force their way onto my browser's favorites. Is... is there a reason for this? I know it wasn't an add-on that did this, since I only have 1 installed for the past couple of years without issues.

Is there a setting for this? Or is it just time to move on to a new browser? I'd rather use Edge than deal with a browser that adds sponsored crap without my permission.

Whenever there's an update after I turn on my computer and go onto Firefox my start page is changed from what I had it last to Bing.com. I don't know what causes it all I'm sure of is that either Mozilla Updates or Windows Updates cause it because before then Firefox works fine.

When I visit https://online.kasikornbankgroup.com/K-Online/indexHome.jsp, and click the K-Cyber Banking tab, all I see is what is shown in attachment 1 - symbols and the View | Text encoding is greyed out. I am unable to see my accounts. This issue started with Firefox 83.0 and people on some other forums have reported the same issue.

The tab should look more like attachment 2.

Does anyone know what is causing this, whether it is a browser problem or bank problem, and if there is a fix for it?

I saw a post on this where they were instructed to go to safe mode and Viola! it works. That is fine, but it does not fix the problem.

My Firefox browser opens all links except what appears to be links from ads or forwarding links from a site to where something is being sold.

Whenever I click on one of these I get the, "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." They open fine on Edge. Is there a setting on Firefox that is blocking these?

I have the download setting to "Always ask you where to save files". Unfortunately, Firefox keeps changing the setting back to the default. I understand that, unfortunately, whenever Firefox does an update it changes all my settings back to the defaults (but that's a different issue).

I have 'Firefox updates' set to only install when I okay the install. Unfortunately something is changing even when I have not run an update.

Why might my download settings be reverting back to the default setting?

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!

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?

Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

When I click on some email links usually in emails from retail businesses they will not open correctly in Firefox. However, if I copy and paste the URL into Chrome or Edge, they open just fine.

For example, this marketing URL from Best Buy, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__click.emailinfo2.bestbuy.com_-3Fqs-3D2c6fa7baf73a68394f3ef56f26a5ad4a91bf0d9f686f2b0ed29326c0b3102d71d175b2209e2d83ca9eb0a1c1c7f163459f482c262ab2f4b26e58d62e7e4ef834&d=DwMDaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=9BjfmubiD4w2fwyJ_mt0mXwRdrhPtBnR3BAlDr2MwcQ&m=xvBFPqHCMmKNSkl4SAZiIQPLiCSPMVea48hGa-JthqE&s=kL922_I7zxhJzD_n1NTyMLI41WY789i3-OLoyhAoSLE&e=

results in the the Best Buy message, "We’re sorry, something went wrong. You can use our search bar or pick a category below. If you typed in a URL, check it for errors."

However, the link works just fine in Chrome and Edge. This problem seems to have surfaced about a month ago. Is there some Firefox setting that I'm overlooking that is causing this?

Thanks

Hi, I recently updated to FF 83.0 and if I open Youtube then play a video my RAM usage sits around 900mb.

If I minimize Firefox or open a new tab, the tab with YouTube playing will start climbing in RAM usage. It will go up to 7.5 GB RAM used and it won't free it up.

I downgraded to FF 82.0.2 and it goes away with same addons. It will sit around the 900mb in this version like it always used to. This only started with the release of FF 83.0

I want to use the new FF version for security, but not being able to play any YouTube videos is bad.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
