I'm on Firefox Developer Edition 119.0b9 (32-bit) and Windows 11 Pro 22H2 but I've been experiencing this problem a lot longer ago even before upgrading to Windows 11. The first thing I open in my computer is Firefox, it gets the window itself quickly but the page stays blank with the gray loading dot going right and left for nearly 10 minutes before the page loads and Firefox works normally. I don't experience any issues while browsing the internet after that long loading but it's really annoying especially when I'm in a hurry and I don't have 10 minutes to stare at a blank page.

I have used Firefox on many systems - MacOS, Linux, Winblows and mainly Android Cellphone.

"about:config" on a Cellphone has never worked, never worked consistently, or mainly been confused with Desktop Firefox :P

Hello?!? The future is mobile not stationary desktops  :P But I digress. Please dont misunderstand me - I love FF - but when I want "about:config" on A Cellphone - I WANT IT to actually work on a freaking cellphone  :P

Is the software config too much for International Mozilla to understand? Or has Mozilla had way to much input from everyone on the planet thus watering down an otherwise great browser?

Kind of rhetorical - I know it will never be fixed in favor of locking in a dieing desktop setup  :P

I just updated to Firefox 120, and tried the new GPC setting (Tell websites not to sell or share my data). I ran into a problem when I went to the Xfinity community forums (https://forums.xfinity.com/) . It causes a banner on top showing they recognize the setting. There is an "X" in the corner, and some text that says "Hide this banner", but they are not active. Plus, I cannot make a new post or do a general reply (that weird forum software has both local replies to a particular post and general replies to the general thread.)

Is this a bug in Firefox, or a bug in their forum software? I attached a picture of the message it gives.

This is a recent failure (this week), that occured without any changes on my own account to Firefox developer version 121.0b2(64-bits)

I had to install google chrome to overcome this problem. Chrome has no issues with microsoft authentication.

Please solve as soon as possible, otherwise I will be switching to another browser.

I am trying to migrate from a very old version of Firefox (v. 55) to the current one, but there is an app that is more helpful to me that all the other features combined. That is the "Tab Grouping" app that will not run in any version of FF higher than v. 55.

In my work, which often includes a tremendous amount of research, I need to be able to quickly go from one group of tabs to another. If I had to open all these sites manually, that would take the better part of the day and frankly I don't have near the mental capacity to remember the tremendous number of tabs. I have had a couple replies (Thanks!) to this question sometime back, but unfortunately none were even close in performance.

So, can anyone direct me to an app that will allow very quick movement from different sets of windows/tab groups (please see screen shots below)? Is there anyway that I can get this app to work in Legacy mode? I have several other old apps that work perfectly well in this mode.

Hi Mozilla Suport teams, i am currently using the mozilla for the developer version and the app runs flawlessly, and i love it. But i have some suggestion for the developer at mozilla to make a tab that can group the tab into a fresh tab like the google chrome has, and since i open so many tab in this browser, i would absolutely love it where the feature of grouping tab is available for me, so i can group them in name and leave it there, rahter than open up more than 10+ tabs in a window. Thank you so much

I wish to have firefox always close the adjacent tab to the tab I just closed

This should be the default behavior ... I do not see any setting for this ... is there an addon to do this ?

I switched from windows 10 to 11 and to a new laptop. Here in my new laptop Asus tuf 15 ,even though it has better RAM , internet connection, cache memory, cores the FIREFOX doesnot function properly. It's extremly laggy specially when I use YOURUBE . In my earlier HP laptop with 8 GB ram I could use 10-15 tabs at one time .It would still not lag . It could do web development at the same time I could watch youtube tutorials. But now I barely open 4-5 tabs the youtube starts freezing up to the extent that I really get frustrated. Please so something or I will have to switch to BRAVE browser or something.

Hello,

I use the Firefox browser on my phone and laptop, and have Lockwise on my phone where all the passwords are stored. Until yesterday, all these passwords would always appear in my Firefox browser stored passwords. Now, they only show up in Lockwise on my phone and do not show up in the phone or Laptop Firefox browser.

I have followed this guide: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-of-support-firefox-lockwise and am syncing passwords across devices, but this did not solve the problem.

Has anyone else encountered this and know how to fix it?

Thank you.

I change nothing in my settings and I am now on Dark background everywhere despite having: - forced the system settings (OS) to stay in light background - in about:preferences appearance I've manually selected (forced) the light background - in about:config I've tried to switch the browser.theme.content-theme to "1" (instead of "0")

this is really frustrating, I would like to get a better "reading" of what happens, as an Engineer I am happy to also squint at logs if needed, please consider adding a preference / settings change log file

Attempting to log-in on Twitch with Firefox Browser - Developer version 122.0b9 (64-bit) is currently not possible, repeated messages are prompted by the Twitch website about "unsupported browser" and to contact browser support to resolve this issue.

Clearing cache, disabling extensions did not work. Using regular Firefox works without issues, only noticed this being an issue after most recent update for Firefox Dev browser.

Side effect as well since update is that any Cloudflare captcha is impossible and all website that use Cloudflare to "authenticate" that I'm human just outright fail or continue indefinitely.
