Ccleaner gives message of "Firefox needs to be closed. i though it was Ccleaner that was the problem. it's not Ccleaner's problem... I get the same message when I run advanced system care... when I click 'close for me' it just skips it over and over. i then run it after starting PC and it still tells me FF is running. the 1st time it lasted for weeks(summer-ish of 2023) and seemed to fix itself. and it also wasn't fixed with 1 or 2 FF updates because i was waiting to see after updates that it would be fixed but wasn't. And I can't find Firefox running in Windows or advanced system care task manager. which means i cant close it manually. so I'm pretty sure it's a Firefox system problem... somehow FF is still running hidden in the background. i run malware fighter and anti virus to see if something is using it but comes up empty.

Firefox changed the design on tabs and other features some time back. The whole user experience has been worse since the UX design was changed. For example, it's impossible to find out without going through tab after tab, which one is active and playing. I wish there was an option to reverse back to the old design.

Every time I open FF it tries to download a file I previously downloaded. Even if I do it again, it won't stop it. How do I delete this queued action?

I think I found it - Settings/More tools/Task manager

Nope, that didn't work. I keeps putting it back into the tasks.

As the title says when I am using the video player on Coursera website I am not able to hide the control bar while on fullscreen mode (even if I don t move my mouse for more than 15 seconds). I ve attached a screenshot with the control bar being displayed. (also the captions are overlapping with that control bar) I ve also tried different ways of opening the fullscreen mode (click on the "Full Screen" button or by pressing 'F'). I don t have this problem on websites like YouTube.

FF 121.0.1-64bit doesn't work right on multiple popular sites

I started with Netscape, lived through Mozilla and then been FF ever since. I love it. But increasingly, I am running into problems with using features in many websites.

For instance with Cigna Health, you can't reset your pw and open certain other links. Cigna Support has a simple solution which has always solved my problem: use Chrome or Edge.

B&H Photo Video mostly works but for instance if you are looking at the pictures associated with a product review and try to enlarge them, FF won't do it. Chrome and Edge do it.

I am finding more and more websites that have these glitches. It's almost as if some website designers are not paying any attention to compatibility of their product with FF.

Am I missing something in the config of FF or are these issues real and likely to get worse over time? I am very worried that if it continues that I will get a message like "Many features on this website are not compatible with FireFox."

I am not a programmer but if there is anything I can do to help, I am glad to do so.

Hi, I read through another thread where someone was having this same issue and there was no resolve because no one seemed to understand the issue. My issue is that I can't clear the "Save Files to" setting under "Files and Applications\Downloads" and leave it at "Always Ask". What I wind up with is a lot of clutter in my Downloads folder. So my question is, How do I correct this setting so FireFox stops saving files in places that I don't want them saved?

Hi,

I tried to visit the following pages in Firefox 121 (running under Arch Linux) and they took minutes to load. They loaded in a fraction of a second in Chromium. Anyone have any idea what is wrong?

The blogger page is here: https://u-blox-ninaw-platformio.blogspot.com/2022/03/u-blox-nina-w-e-platformio-arduino.html

Here are a few forums that take minutes to load, I think they use the same engine as I see the same colorful loading animation: https://community.platformio.org/t/error-please-specify-upload-port/26218 https://forum.manjaro.org/

Does anyone have any idea what is happening or what I should do to alert the development team? Are these sites using technology not implemented in Firefox?

Best Regards,

Kevin

Prior to updating to Windows 11 I was able to specify the bookmark folder that I wanted to save the bookmark in when I pressed "Bookmark Current Tab" or "Ctrl-D". Now it automatically saves the bookmark in the "Other Bookmarks" folder instead of allowing me to save it in my desired folder? I then have to find the saved bookmark and manually move it to the desired folder. Is there a fix for this or is this a permanent feature change? Thanks for your help.

My system recently slowed considerably. When I checked what was happening, I found there were up to 14 Firefox 'windows' showing in my Task Manager, and collectively these 'windows' were consuming over 25% of the computer memory (650+MB) even with Firefox just opened as the initial browser screen; no addresses etc had yet to be added. I've followed many of the troubleshooting suggestions, but to no avail. I have not reset the browser as yet as I need to understand the root of the problem
