Today is October 2, 2022. Firefox became noticeably slower about 4 to 6 weeks ago. There were problems with YAHOO! Mail, for example. It was particularly noticeable when I would be watching one YouTube video and then would click on the image/icon of a different video, trying to change to & open the new video. E.g., NBC or CBS videos, like "Jimmy Kimmel" shows, etc. A couple of days ago, I opened Windows 10(TM) Task Manager, and used "End Task" to shut off Dropbox instances. I then uninstalled Dropbox. I did that to prevent Dropbox from running in the background [and I don't need it, anyway]. That seemed to help. I have also switched to Firefox "Troubleshoot Mode" -- that seemed to help, somewhat, but not necessarily in every case.

 Yesterday, there were problems opening MyADP (to view salary pay stubs) with Firefox [in regular mode].  The application just seemed to be "stuck" while trying to open the view to payment listing.  So, this morning, I ran MS-Edge(TM), and MyADP opened properly and operated with no problems.
   Is it possible that some MS-Windows 10(R) update is causing problems with Firefox?

Moments ago, I opened YAHOO! mail in a separate, new tab, and logged-in quickly, without a problem. I'm happy about that.

  I just opened another tab, easily started the video.  However, clicking on a different video's icon -- the result is that the YouTube red line only moves left to right about 2/3 of the way across the screen, and the newly-selected video does not load.  Clicking repeatedly on the different video's icon seems to "clog" YouTube to the point that the message, "Connect to the internet.  You are offline.  Retry", appears.

So, I'm a bit puzzled. What do you suggest, please?

  Thank You in Advance, 

Dave

Good morning, There are multiple questions. 1. Now everytime I click on a link in an article it opens a completely different page of firefox instead of just making a tab on the line with all the other tabs. It also loads that new page half way off the screen on the right hand side and I have to drag it over, open it full sized and then screw around with cutting and pasting the url into a new tab on the old firefox page. How do I stop it from doing this? It's realllllly annoying.

2. It is screwing up some of my graphics by putting horizontal lines into the picutres to where you can't view it. Specifically on jigsaws from jigsawplanet.com. I work on a gaming site and this really impacts my ability to do my job (or have fun).

3. One one particular site HEXrpg.com, I set my view at 120% and every page I go it it reverts it back to 100%. This did NOT used to happen and it only seems to be happening on that particular site..... However, it could be on other sites as I've had to set my entire computer to 120% now so I can read the posts on that one site and now everything is too big for my screens in the other sites.

I don't know what you guys were trying to do, but whatever it was, can you please put it back to the way it was before this last (possibly last 2) updates. If not I'm going to have to switch to Edge or Chrome and I really don't want to have to do this because I've been with Firefox forever. HELP!?! Deborah DeVane

Hi,

I recently had to switch computers. I have had a Firefox account for years and utilize the Firefox sync. However, I am unable to login to my Firefox account on my new computer. There is a "working" banner at the top but it never loads. I can access my account on Chrome but there is not an option to sync my data back. In the Firefox browser, it does not give me the option to sync.

Thanks,

Hello,

I'm currently trying to disable the media overlay when playing audio, videos and so on. Going to about:config and setting media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false does indeed fix the problem, except I now can't use the buttons on my keyboard to pause and unpause.

Recap: setting media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled removes the overlay but also disables keyboard buttons to pause and unpause.

Is there a solution for this?

I mark student scripts, doc, docx and pdf, many of which are downloaded in a 2-3 day marking session. So opening the files needs to be easy and slick. But it doesn't work well any more - even worse than previously. How can I get Firefox to download and open the file automatically when clicking on the link? "They" seem to be putting barriers in the way of efficient working.

I'm on Windows 10. Every time I open up a new tab, I cannot see either the saved links or bookmarks. It's like they have been wiped from the page. I can still access the bookmarks. I've tried the about:newtab and about:home fixes but neither have worked. None of my extensions are doing it, either.

Thanks for your time.

I think the latest update, Firefox 105.01, screwed up my bookmarks. The Star on the address bar is blue for any site. Clicking on it does nothing. Will not edit, three bar menu will not edit, Control D will not edit.

There is now a bar underneath the address bar for a toolbar which was not there previously. I have never used or needed the bookmarks toolbar.

The Release notes for 105.01 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/105.0.1/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog) appears as a bookmark in an unrelated folder. It will not delete.

I did look at the release notes right after the update. I closed that tab and did not bookmark it.

Cannot add new bookmarks.

I just discovered on the three bar menu under the Bookmarks menu that 105 shows as the last recent bookmark. Prior recent bookmarks will open up the "edit this bookmark." Only the save button is highlighted & clicking on that does nothing & the menu disappears.

Please fix. Thank you

How can I uninstall the latest Firefox Update? My version is 105.01. When I right click on the file menu, there is a blank menu, except for the "Bookmarks Menu" is the only thing. Also, the side menu on the right side is useless. None of the commands show except for a couple keyboard shortcuts. I tried changing themes and also changed to the default theme with no luck.

I rely heavily on the menus so i would love to roll back/uninstall the update. Thank you. nottyn
