Hi! Can't connect to my router panel in 192.168.1.1, probably due to bad cache. But there is no cache for 192.168.1.1 in firefox "data manager", but I sure it exist. I don't want to clear all cache and data. Incognito mode without addons doesn't work. I can establish connection in other browsers, includes another firefox browser. How could I clear cache for 192.168.1.1, if firefox show there is none?

I have rather abruptly lost all audio in Firefox 77 on Windows 10. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Facebook videos - all silent.

Meanwhile, I'm getting sound as usual when viewing those things in Chrome (and I would really prefer not to have to go back to Chrome), and all sound from other sources is working correctly - games, iTunes, Spotify, etc.

Does Firefox hook into my system's audio functions in some unique way, different from everything else? I've recently started experimenting with doing my own music and video recording/editing, and I've tried out a number of different audio/video apps in an attempt to find the tools that suit me, and I'm starting to wonder if one of the apps I tried modified or overwrote whatever system hook that Firefox was using.

Strangely enough, the audio spontaneously started working again yesterday, a few hours after it stopped, and was still working today until I rebooted my machine. Then it was gone again.

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

I am not able to post pictures in Facebook comments using Firefox on my laptop. I am posting this here rather than in FB because I *am* able to post using Internet Explorer. When I click on the camera icon within the comment area nothing happens. In IE, doing the same opens up the ususal window to select the file I want to upload. Also, on my LG Android phone I can add photos to comments. Is there some setting in Firefox that could be the cause?

Ever since switching from Chrome to Firefox, I have been unable to log in to Tumblr. I have checked my phone like five times to make sure I am using the right password - I am. I can successfully log in to Tumblr on my phone, but not on Firefox. This is the only website I have this problem with - I have tried to contact their support, but I figured I would contact Firefox support too since I don't know which side is causing the problem.

Please let me know what I should do.

Fields in fillable forms are invisible in Firefox. They are there, but text titles and where to type don't show. The fields are autofilling (for those fields where auto fill has been enabled), but the info can't be seen. It's impossible to tell where the fields are, or if they have have been filled in or if info needs to be entered. This happens with log in pages as well as pages requiring info for ordering and such.

These features are working in other browsers.

Hello!

I have just migrated from chrome to Firefox, and I am completely loving Firefox. However, there is just one big drawback for me.

On chrome, you can swipe across the bottom/top tab bar to easily switch to a different tab. Howevee, this does not seem to be available in Firefox.

It would be the perfect browser if it could do this!

Please let me know if there is any way to request this as a feature, or if I'm being stupid and not noticing a setting!

Thanks,

Oliver

This is not a question. It is a complaint. I can't see anywhere else to lodge it.

I am on a mac mini. I keep getting "Secure connection failed and Firefox did not connect" on secure government sites and others that I know are just fine. I'm sick of it. This did not happen till recently and I have not changed my settings or preferences for over a year.

When I get this message these days, guess what I do - I switch browsers. I would like to keep using Firefox. I like it. However, I get this message on too many sites to put up with it any longer. If it isn't adjusted in the next update, I will strongly consider switching browsers permanently.

Even Safari allows me to continue to the site - certificate or no certificate. Blocking me from the site is ridiculous. Fix it.
