browser no longer loads gmail.com account with option selction at the bottom right for slow html connection - a better interface for me

It used to automatically give me this selective option when opening the gmail account link... but that link has gone away in place of something much more cumbersome to negitiate.

Can you give me back my slow html gmail.com interface selection link like always before now?

Recently, when I try to play a video on YouTube on Firefox, there is a flickering brightness effect (some aspects of the video seem to flicker bright and dark quickly) which is distracting and makes it difficult to watch anything. The effect persists even when launching in troubleshooting mode, and disabling hardware acceleration and restarting appears to have no effect. I have also been unsuccessful refreshing Firefox. Nevertheless, this issue is absent on Safari and Chrome when watching the same video.

Watching a solid colored video like this helps see the issue best, if it is happening to your device: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJmFYZEcpZA The brightness switch is visible even when pausing the video.

When I find the same video two different places (ex: the Apple Sept 12 Event on Apple's site, versus on YouTube) only the YouTube video has the issue. However, I can't find any settings to change on YouTube to help this.

I've tried refreshing Firefox and clearing cache, but neither of these work.

I use Firefox on a PC to access Facebook (website, not app). This week the Messenger/Chat feature stopped working. I click the icon and it opens but nothing appears in the box, it just hangs. There is an option to open in its own window, but that also is blank - no past messages, no contact names, no ability to start new message. When I log onto Facebook in Edge, Messenger works fine in Facebook.

I've tried everything I found on the internet for this issue - updated and refreshed Firefox, cleared history/cache/cookies/site data, uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger, refreshed Facebook to initial settings, used Firefox in troubleshooting mode, reset everything, turned off browser, turned off my computer, used shift key to reload tab - nothing has worked. There are some instructions about stuck cookies, but I didn't understand them so I didn't try that one thing. I've gone into every menu I can find to try to figure out this issue, which isn't the end of the world, but I would appreciate some other ideas for what is suddenly causing this. Because now I have to redo all of my settings and preferences and logins and the problem still isn't fixed.

When I doubleclick an image in Azure DevOps, it's supposed to open fullscreen in a popup/tab. That popup opens, and immediately closes afterwards.

How do I fix this?

Popups are explicitly allowed on this site, but it doesn't make a difference. I have tried turning off content blockers, and changing between strict and standard privacy settings.

I don't really want to go on a wild goose chase and try a billion different things. Rather, I'd like to know how to diagnose this. So how can I know what mechanism is responsible for closing the popup. This will allow me to narrow my diagnosis a great deal.

It would also help to know how I can 100% prevent anything other than the user from being able to close a tab. Just to test what happens inside that popup. Because how can I know what's going on in a popup that lives for a few milliseconds? I'm not that fast.

I got back on to Thunderbird today after being away for a couple of weeks. Downloaded and updated Thunderbird, as I usually do when an update is available. I am now on 115.2.2 (32-bit) Windows 10 My previously received emails are still there, last one 8/27/23 When I click on "get emails" nothing happens. No error message, no indication that anything is happening. I checked the email isp settings and they are correct I can receive emails on my phone using a different app. The phone app (TypeApp) indicates it is a pop3 account. I changed the Thurderbird account settings to Pop3.optonline.net frp, pop.optonline.net. Now my account and the emails have disappeared!! Please help BTW, before I changed the pop to pop3, I sent a test email using Thunderbird and it went through properly. thanks

New to Firefox...downloaded on Iphone, and started moving articles from chrome readling list to firefox. BUT, it's not syncing on my ipad or my desktop (pc). I scanned the QR code with my phone, but it says I need to do it through the app (which I am).

I'm switching because chrome keeps crashing. The biggest thing I use it for is when I see an article I want to read later, I can add on my phone, and it shows up on my laptop, pc, and Ipad. I'm sure firefox does the same?

PS: I'm very much not a computer person, so please dumb down for me :)

Getting NS_ERROR_NET_RESET -- but only in Firefox (Septemer 2023)

I type "http://localhost:30001" into Firefox, then I see the connection reset error. In my web developer tools, under networking, I see NS_ERROR_NET_RESET.

This only happens in Firefox. http://localhost:30001 will resolve correctly in Chrome and Edge.

To troubleshoot, I have:

  1. Tried visiting the site in Troubleshooting Mode
  2. Cleared everything (history, cache, offline data, etc)
  3. Disabled http3 (based on a StackOverflow.com recommendation)
  4. Disconnected from my VPN
  5. I am not using a proxy

What can I do to stop this misbehavior?

Firefox Onebar CSS style modification (Userchrome.css file modification) to meet my needs

Hello.

My name is Kris and I have been a life-long Firefox user. Recently I have come across this great Firefox Onebar CSS style, which I have become obsessed with: https://codeberg.org/Freeplay/Firefox-Onebar, which aims to modify the Firefox default appearance. I have installed it according to instruction and introduced few tweaks offered for consideration iin the aforementioned link:

  • onebar.hide-all-URLbar-icons
  • onebar.disable-https-truncate
  • onebar.disable-single-tab

This is the most far I have gone without further ruining the browser by manually editing the Userchrome.css file.

Could I please request your help with adjusting said file content to make minor changes? My expectations are to leave everything untouched besides the following:

  • all flexible spaces are removed
  • the Extensions button is removed
  • the List All Tabs button is removed
  • the Home and Refresh buttons are permanently visible and aligned to the left of URL bar, followed by conditionally visible Back and Forward arrows upon their activation (they seem to be in the URL bar already however are invisible)
  • the Hamburger is permanently visible and aligned to the right of the URL bar(it seems to be in the URL bar already, but is invisible)
  • the search box is aligned to the left, but is preceded by Home, Refresh buttons and Navigation arrows

The Navigation arrows and Hamburger menu invisibility issue might have to do with the colour that has assumed the same one as the theme URL bar background.

If you could please modify that style for me, that would be so great, indeed. I have been obsessed with that ever since I have discovered it. Alternatvely, please direct me to a forum/IRC channel where I can place that request.

Thank you, hank you, thank you. Please, respond. Kris.

So some website didn't work for me and I pressed "forget" button thinking it only removes history from a particular website (no). That's it - EVERYTHING COLLAPSED, session is lost, all tabs gone. Trying to restore from "sessionstore.backup" - no result. Trying from synced - oh sure CRAP IS TURNED OFF like always for NO reason

Thanks a lot, douchebag morons. Hope you all die + anyone suggesting to copy "sessionrestore" gets testicle/boob cancer + anyone suggesting to turn sync on can eat my crap

Every day I have to work and use my pinned tabs. But now, they disappear every time Firefox restarts, notwithstanding that your settings indicated Firefox will reopen all tabs on the next session. Why? Where I live there are blackouts every day, especially during the night. So I have to close all my programs, turn off my computer, and restart it early in the morning in order to work. Please turn back to reopen pinned tabs every time Firefox reopens!
