Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.

I'm on a Mac, running Catalina, with 64 GBs of RAM, and Firefox is using about 20+ GBs of RAM, and very high CPU usage. I keep trying new updated versions, hoping this will no longer be an issue, but it persists. Is there anything I can really do, to tamper it down?

I tried opening FF in safe mode, only to find several windows with several tabs on each GONE! Why should troubleshooting issues only make me more frustrated and ready to can this browser forever? Help should be help, not making things worse...

An issue I am running into with the latest Firefox is that when connected to an external display (4K) the screen starts flickering really bad when scrolling in Firefox for MacOS.

Safari does not, other programs do not, only Firefox!

Anyone having similar issues or knowing a solution? It is really annoying! Thanks in advance!

Don't know where to write it, but I hope some developers of Firefox will read it...

After years of UI / UX Design studies Firefox recently "updated" the bookmarks menu ignoring everything ever established in UI / UX design rules!

1. When you right click on a bookmark you suddenly find the bookmark options split into two segments? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. Why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"? Such things cause all this annoying obstacles which no one needs when working with a program. Who ever thought this might be a great intervention should take the step back.

Same with folders. 1. When you right click on a bookmark folder you suddenly find the bookmark folder options split into two segments, too? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. And again, why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"?

Hi! since the update to Firefox 89.0, when I try to upload a photo to a website from my Mac Photo library, the library shows up empty. It does that with any websites and on and it does work absolutely fine via Chrome or Safari. Is it something to do with permissions? any advice? Thank you

Whenever I try to delete my Firefox Account, it says that my password is incorrect. I've changed my password, copy-pasted it from the password change page and it still says my password is incorrect. How can I fix this? The password works fine for other Firefox things, just not the account deletion page.

v89 significantly changed the "Top Sites" default icons. Is there an about:config setting that can be changed to revert to the v88 icons? (Setting browser.proton.enabled to FALSE had no effect on the default Top Sites Icons.)

BTW, I do not find the new default Top Sites Icons to be an improvement. On the contrary, the bright colors and large letter outlines are overbearing and distracting. I would prefer no icons to the v89 icons. The v88 (and prior) icons were okay. [In general, I found the v89 interface update a step backward from v88.]

Thank you for any assistance in finding a solution.

My Firefox client will not play any embedded videos on any web sites or stream content from sites such as Twitch. Strangely, the only site that will play videos is Youtube.

I've tried disabling all extensions (I only have two - Ad Block and Better Twitch TV), disabling hardware acceleration, clearing my cache and cookies, and using troubleshooting mode. None of those solve the issue.

Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help?

A link to my previous thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1339912

Recap: I was having what I believe were some kind of syncing issues, where none of my passwords would autofill, and I couldn't save new login information, and was getting logged out of websites that I would normally be perma-logged in to. At the same time, I have also been having connectivity issues where FF loses connection to my internet for around 5 minutes. Sometimes it would fix itself and other times I'd have to restart FF. Meanwhile, Chrome would run fine in the background so I know it's not my actual wifi but it's specific to FF.

I have tried the FF "refresh" and when that didn't fix it, I tried a full uninstall/reinstall which fixed my syncing/password autofill issues but not my connectivity issues.

Any other ideas? I'm super bummed about this because I've used FF for many years and been so happy with it and have convinced so many friends to jump ship from Chrome over to FF. But I don't have time to keep troubleshooting this and it's looking more and more like I'll have to switch over to Chrome if I want to have a normal workday without frustrations and interruptions.

I'm using the new version 89 of Firefox. Often, when I'm reading an article from a website, the screen suddenly zooms in, the letters become huge, and the page no longer fits on my computer screen. Am I doing something to cause this? It's really annoying and it has me wondering if I should abandon Firefox after all these years for something else.

Does anyone else have this experience? I've only noticed it with version 89?

Hi Folks, I am running firefox on my macpro 3,3GHz 12- Core Intel Xenon W Graphics AMD Radeo Pro 580x 8 GB, I am using an apple XDR display.

Every so often I experience a white flash, just within the Firefox window, not across the entire monitor.

I have tried a completely new and full install of Firefox but same problem.

I wonder is anyone had any thoughts or ideas  ?

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??
