When i look into resource monitor, i get sick by seeing how much firefox is writing to my C: SSD. Some time ago i tried fixing it by doing folder linking and stuff i already forgot. It seems like everything got reverted after an update or something. (You can tell im not a Pro) But why is this such a hassle in the first place? Why cant we just get the option to completely deny the use of SSD? I dont care how slow it would be, i dont want to bu a new SSD every 2 years.

Hi, I faced the problem with Youtube recommendations on a video page. When I watch a video I can't see recommendations, comments and video title (see the image). In console i get an error: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/id. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed).

I am on arch linux system.

I've tried to: 1. Update all ca-certificate* packages 2. Disable and delete ad-block 3. Use another browser (there is no problem, only in firefox)

This problem is only actual on Youtube for me.

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

After updating Firefox to 80 and 81, I have a problem adding entries in Wordpress. I add entry No. 1 - it's OK. I add another No. 2 - there is a PROBLEM. New entry No. 2 overwrites entry No. 1 for me. Firefox 79 did not have this problem. To be able to add a new entry, I have to restart the browser (I have in the settings delete cookies and browser history) and then I can add another entry. In other browsers this problem does not exist, so it's a Firefox 80 error, which also appears in 81. I checked only one of my installed wordpress. This looks like a problem with cookies or temporary files.

Po aktualizacji Firefoxa na 80 i 81 mam problem z dodawaniem wpisów w Wordpress. Dodaję wpis nr 1 - jest OK. Dodaję kolejny nr 2 - jest problem. Nowy wpis nr 2 nadpisuje wpis nr 1. W Firefoxie 79 tego problemu nie było. Żeby móc dodać nowy wpis, muszę ponownie uruchomić przeglądarkę (mam w ustawieniach usuwanie plików cookies i historii przeglądarki) i wtedy mogę dodawać kolejny wpis. W innych przeglądarkach tego problemu nie ma, więc to błąd Firefoxa 80, który pojawia się też w 81. Sprawdzałem tylko na jednym moim zainstalowanym wordpressie. To wygląda na problem z cookies lub plikami tymczasowymi.

Just received 79.0.5 update. I have disabled all autocomplete options but if I type 'f' in URL bar it autocompletes as 'facebook'. Similarly, 't' completes as 'twitter', 'i' as 'instagram' etc. I really don't need or want my browser doing this. I tried about:config which seems to be disabled. Next I tried nightly which has about:config enabled but still couldn't disable autocomplete. I'd rather not use nightly tbh so a fix for ordinary Firefox would be appreciated.

If you execute the following code in the browser's console

onkeydown = function(e){console.log(e);};

it should log every keypress to the console window, however, the event doesn't seem to fire when I press Control, Alt or Shift (by themselves, keycombos like Shift + W work). Trying the same in Edge for example works for every key, including the three mentioned. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug of firefox? I should also mention that I'm using the developer edition of firefox.

I used to be able to print any web page/document by pressing "CTRL + P" and then pressing "ENTER". I print about 40-50 documents a day at work. Firefox decided to make an update where the "Print" button is no longer selected by default, so pressing ENTER doesn't do anything. You have to manually drag the mouse down and click it. Does anyone know a hotkey to print without using the mouse?

I know it sounds silly, but dragging the mouse 50 times a day to the print button when it used to be instant is making me want to switch to Chrome again, since they're pretty much the same thing now.

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Dark mode is a great feature and one of the reasons I love android. Especially with an OLED screen to conserve battery power but also save the eyes.

Firefox's dark mode is not for the following reasons.

- in between tabs/websites when the page data is loading a blaring white screen is displayed. This when contrasted to a website that is dark using DarkReader is quite blinding.

- It's dark but it as most reputable apps are offering a OLED dark mode to allow for the battery saving feature of having pixels being turned off. This should be enabled as a Firefox option or allow themes to do this for you.

Hello,

I just noticed & downloaded Firefox for Android Beta 81.1.0-beta.2 as I have been at my wits' end these past few days with the recent upgrade, Firefox 80.1.2 (which nearly always stalls with a blank white page)

Now I need my bookmarks so that I can work. They're all over on Ff 80.1.2 I have hundreds probably. Please help! I would like to delete the non-functioning Firefox 80.1.2 and throw in my lot with the beta version.

Thank you for any help.

(It makes me wonder how long I've been using a version of Firefox not intended for Android .... Can anyone tell me?)
