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

My default language set to English. However, when I open a logon window, my account and browser settings the language switches to Vietnamese. Firefox version is 77 running on Windows 10.

Where do I check the settings to switch back to English? I have only English set in General -> Language. Any other settings that may affects the language I want to use?

Thanks, H Doan

Recent Difficulty with Google products using Firefox

Recently I have experienced difficulty loading gmail when using firefox, and then from a gmail inbox page, clicking their 9 dots (right top corner), selecting google drive, which now opens a blank tab and fails to load anything. This problem has only occurred since the most recent update with firefox.

I am using 77.0.1 (64-bit) on Mac OS - MoJave v10.14.5 - I do NOT experience these issues when using Chrome browser, or using Firefox on my Linux system.. only on my Mac.

Additionally, despite clearing all cache, history, etc. etc. several times, the problem persists, though sometimes, it does actually work, but rarely, compared to never having this problem.

In the bottom left corner where google hangouts crap is, it often shows a 301 error, obviously trying to re-direct something, but always fails, and hence, the full page never fully loads.

Screenshots attached: 1. gmail inbox page - loading issue as noted regarding bottom left corner with regards to hangouts stuff. 2. capture of tabs after clicking to select Google Drive from within the Gmail page as noted.

Hope this info helps - Thanks for any efforts to rectify this annoying issue, as I really don't want to resort back to Chrome.

Firefox reset - lost previous session and plugins

I was trying to attach a jpg into an email using Gmail on Firefox. One of my attachments would not load, no matter how I tried. I then read there is a PROBLEM with Gmail and Firefox as regards attachments. Is that the case? The attachment sent fine in Chrome.

So I followed instructions and did a "refresh" of Firefox. Now I lost my previous session restore, and a plug-in/extension that I was using and liked.

It put a list view to the left of the window that showed me all open tabs, and on which each listing could be clicked to go instantly to that tab. I can't remember what the name of that extension is, and, again, it has disappeared.

I don't want to switch back to Chrome because it's a memory hog, but this behavior from Firefox is frustrating. Is there anyone who can help?

Thanks, Gary Stockdale

I have a completely fresh install of mozilla on my laptop *HP Elitebook 8470p*, it plain refuses to load webpages, and it seems to be the only browser to have this issue.

It has the following specs: a I5 3340M 8GB DDR3 RAM at 1300MHz Integrated graphics chip

Its running windows 10

Is this a case of the specs being utterly lacking or am I missing something.
