YouTube all of a sudden started to slow down and only be able to load videos fast enough in 360p resolution, I tried watching YouTube on Microsoft edge and YouTube handled 1080p easily there, I have cleared the cash and made sure my Firefox and Windows are up to date and still the issue persists.

this only seams to occur on YouTube as amazon prime and speed test works without issues

As of today, I am unable to scroll with my mouse in google sheets. The scroll bar on the right disappears and I'm taken to the bottom of the spreadsheet and can't scroll back up. I have to use CTRL+Home and then the arrow keys to go down the rows. This appears to be only on Firefox. I tried a different browser and it worked fine.

Attached is a screenshot of a video on youtube. Usually I can hear sounds but not now.

Hi all, In the past I was using Chrome and I have decided to move back to Firefox because I didn't like certain trends of that browser...now...the thing is...I like to use Yandex, but in Chrome -until a certain point- I was able to alter its settings to force default English language for it.

Firefox seems to have Yandex set as default...you cannot alter it and you cannot delete any of the default engines (i.e., because if it is loaded, you seem unable to try add it as custom search engine with your chosen parameters), but seems that the Mozilla developers had the brilliant idea to add it with the default settings...which is in Russian...

...and you look into Extensions and all the people writing extensions seemed to have the same idea...

Now...fine that Yandex is mostly for Russian people, but why English-speaking users to be forced with the default search in Russian and being completely denied any possibility to force the English language on Yandex (as it is fully possible if you were able to tweak the search parameters...but Firefox isn't allowing to do, because the only thing we have is a dumbed down interface with a list of search engines!)...

...alternatively...why not allow to force our favored language parameters to ALL search engines by default?

( That would mean that one could have Google, Bing or Yandex in a different language of our choice....but that change would need to be implemented on developer side...)

Firefox keeps offering to translate websites, your new feature.

I neither want it to, nor do I appreciate ads, because it is simply you advertising your new product.

I have looked at the settings and there are 0 languages for which I've set it so it will offer me to translate and 0 for which it will do. Besides the fact I do speak and read multiple languages; it is not a feature I am interested in.

So when I set it so it will not bug me about it and every time I enter a foreign language site the little pop-up shows; that's some serious unwanted ads and also clearly FAR more tracking than FF is even supposed to be doing.

I have used firefox for nearly 15 years, but I'm honestly wondering if I should find another privacy focused browser One that doesn't spam me with little pop-ups over it's latest ill-conceived stupid feature.

So you could help by actually NEVER-EVER under any fucking circumstances show this stupid translation pop-up UNLESS I put I request it to do so in the settings or at the very LEAST allow me to turn it off.

I don't have a home page button on my browser. How do I add a home page button? Also, when I navigate to a new page my bookmark tool bar at the top disappears. I only have the bookmark tool bar on my home page. I want it to show on every tab I open so I can easily navigate from there rather than having to go back to my home page every time. This problem started when I got a new computer. The browser works fine on my old computer.

Recently Firefox is slower and when I have one screen up and go to task manager it shows anywhere from 8 to 40 instances of Firefox running and sometimes 98% CPU usage. I have had other problems since the Microsoft January 9, 2024 update. Is this related or is this a separate Firefox issue? How to start fixing?

thanks

For the past week, when I sign into Facebook, the news feed is constantly refreshing itself. Once in a while the first post will stay, but the remainder of the news feed keeps refreshing. It is impossible to read anything as posts flash on and off, mostly off. The news feed is the only thing that is affected, visiting pages for likes and groups load and display properly, as do the games I play. The same occurs if in the private window mode. This does not happen if in the Chrome browser. What can be done to correct this situation?

I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

I have just upgraded to Firefox version 123. Now whenever I start Firefox on any of my profiles, it will immediately or almost immediately display a "Welcome back" popup stating that "Here’s a quick reminder that you can keep your favorite indie browser just one click away." and provides a button to make the browser the default one. That's exceedingly annoying - I can understand that Firefox wants to notify my once in a while, but this happens at least once a day, probably more often than that. I looked over the source code and got that it is a "spotlight" feature, but I failed to find any settings that would turn it off. Any idea how can I disable this forever?

I've just switched to firefox from brave, and theres no button on twitch to enable picture in picture. Using the keyboard shortcut (cmd+option+shift+]) works, but I'd much rather click something on the screen. On brave there used to be a picture in picture button alongside settings, theatre mode, and fullscreen buttons, but on firefox this has been replaced by a clip button. There's no option for it if I right click (this works on youtube), and no option in the address bar for either twitch or youtube. I've tried disabling all my extensions and lowering protections but nothing seems to work.
