Google.com is my homepage in Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) It takes forever to load. I can go load Chrome where Google is also my homepage, come back to Firefox and still be waiting for Google to load.

When I login to gmail, I type my password and wait and wait and wait and then I get sent back to the login page and have to type my password again.

I need to speed this up. I prefer Firefox over Chrome, but Chrome is faster to use.

I have lost or deleted a folder in my bookmarks menu. Not the star menu but the drop down under the words Bookmarks Menu on the toolbar. Since it is different, going back to restore does not help. Is there a way to get this very important folder back and is there a way to combine the two lists for the future so I would then be using the star drop down? Thank you.

Whenever i click on a link that uses redirection Firefox opens nothing - when i right click open link in new tab firefox gives me a redirection notice and the choice to open the link. i tried some solution from other questions:

1. There is no setting in preferences that fixes the problem (removed in my version)

2. I tried the config option blockautorefresh but it was already false (i tried toggle it back and forth nothing changed)

3. I tried a solution in the config area there is an option that brings the old preferences layout back but in my case this option is missing.

i would appreciate any help.

I've seen this asked a few times and they have all been a generic answer that really doeant apply to what is happening. I'm hoping I can articulate a better description as to what's going on.

Ever since the latest android update I've randomly received system notifications of Mozilla using the camera in the background. There is no prompt to allow or decline and it's never for any specific site. I took screenshots for reference but the only tabs I had open this time was summit racing, rockauto and Google. None of which require camera use. The only site that's always been open when I've had the occurence is Google but it's extremely random. It is always via firefox and as I stated Google is the only page that's been open every time and again there is no prompt for permission. I have went in this time and disabled camera permissions for firefox as I finally got a screenshot before the message went away.

This has clearly been an issue for others as well but the answers I've seen have not been consistent for what's happening. Unless I havent found a better reply.

Thanks and hopefully this can be addressed.

Login for Gmail long-in NEXT button no longer responsive after installing latest Firefox 62. I usually have gmail account set to always be logged in. I signed out then attempted to sign back in. I typed in my username and click NEXT but this button is NOT responding anymore. So now I can't log into gmail with Firefox 62 on iMac.

I tried to open a “private” window in Firefox (first time using this) and the NEXT button in Gmail works and allows me to log in (I can see the indicator scroll and everything functions) , but in standard browser this button is unresponsive. I tried changing tracking, pop ups, added exceptions to gmail …. nothing fixes the issue. I cleared all my cookies, clear cache (now I have to re-authorize or re-validate my computer for all my banking & credit card access for payments, and everything, etc … big pain in the ass … thanks Firefox) . Why does NEXT button (or these controls) only work in private window but not in standard ?????? I also noticed recently that some other sites have had dome buttons that aren’t recognized after clicking.

iMac with Sierra 10.12.6 32gb ram, worked perfectly until I logged out and needed to log back in.

I just refreshed my FF browser and now, every time I open the FF browser in Windows 7, I get this irritating info bar at the bottom. It's like a pop up ad and I want it gone! Here is what it said last time: "Your browser is ready for a makeover. Don’t worry, you’ve got tons of options. Check them out here." I can't find any options to get rid of it and, when I "X" it out, it comes right back when I open another window. Thanks...

При сохранении страницы в закладки с помощью CRTL+D отображается частичный скриншот сохраняемой страницы на развороте с настройками закладки. Экран моего нетбука невелик и если в настройках сохраняемой закладки развернуть список папок для выбора, то кнопки "Готово" и "Отмена" уходят за нижний край экрана. В этой ситуации очень неудобно сохранять закладки. И, на мой взгляд, этот урезаный скриншот сохраняемой страницы абсолютно бессмыленный и бесполезный. Подскажите, пожалуйста, можно ли как-то отключить его показ?

Hello, I'm currently on Firefox 62 for Android. I understand that Firefox 63 was released a few weeks ago on 22-Oct however I still do not see the update in play store. Should I just wait for the update to appear or sideload from apkmirror? For info, I've noticed that I generally seem to get the update a week or so after it has been released but have need had to wait this long.

Hi,

On most occasions, when I visit my on line bank account, I find the information displayed incorrectly; also many services, which are selectable, are missing.

The attached image (with account identification and personal information removed), was taken using MS Edge, shows the opening page, as it should appear.

When I open my account, using the latest version of Firefox, I find that all four of my accounts show the transactions, as if the "Down Arrow" has been clicked - But there is no "Down Arrow" visible with Firefox (To set, or Reset).

Furthermore, with the accounts open, showing the transactions, there should be additional "Down Arrows" to show pending transactions (ones that have not yet been processed) - These "Down Arrows" are not present, either.

I have entered Privacy & Security and selected:-

(1) Accept cookies and site data from web sites (recommended)

(2) Listed my Bank web link details in Exceptions to "Allow" ( I have tried all of the other options, too)

(3) Accept cookies and site data from web sites (recommended) - Set to Always - ( I have tried all of the other options, too)

(4) Selected Never, for Tracking Protection - ( I have tried all of the other options, too)

(5) Selected Only when using Tracking Protection, in the Send web sites a “Do Not Track” signal that you don’t want to be tracked, option - - ( I have tried all of the other options, too)

(6) Listed my Bank web link details in Exceptions to "Allow" ( I have tried all of the other options, too), in Block pop-up windows.

(7) Listed my Bank web link details in Exceptions to "Allow" ( I have tried all of the other options, too), in Warn you when web sites try to install add-ons

None of these issues arise with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or MS Edge - All work perfectly, with the default setting.

Appreciate any thoughts on this matter
