How Firefox has been acting since last couple of updates

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

Hello


I have a problem with Firefox 87 that I am completely stumped by. Since I have updated Windows to version 20H2, my audio in Firefox became all muddy, as if only bass tones come through. Speech is completely inaudible and impossible to understand. This is a problem unique to Firefox, as other applications such as Spotify or MS Edge sound fine.

Could this be a compatibility problem with my sound card? (Creative SoundBlaster ZxR) This feels unlikely as it worked before...


Any tips? Thanks

When I open FF, the window only displays the top menus. If I click the Green dot it will then open full screen. Pressing the green dot once again only displays that 1 inch window. The problem does not occur in safe mode for Firefox. I turned off all of my extensions and turned off hardware Accelerator mode yet the problem still happens.

This just began yesterday and I don't believe I installed anything.

I had to clear History and Cookies on my desktop to get an online purchase done. I was able to add my passwords for every site bar one (afl.com.au). It just won't accept my password despite changing it. Works fine in Brave and Chrome. Also fine on my laptop (didn't clear anything there). Any help sincerely appreciated.

when I am on a video, picture..., and right clicked and executed "OPEN LINK IN NEW TAB", I would STAY on the tab I am on and continue to "open" new tabs. That way, I could open lots of new tabs from the page I am on.

Now, it TRANSFERS ME TO THE TAB I JUST OPENED and I have to "go back".

What changed with rel 87.0? How can I go back to "staying on my tab" I am on? I don't see any "options".

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

Hi all, Once and a while, suddenly, bookmarks can´t be saved any longer. So I restart Firefox and all is ok again. This happens perhaps twice a month. - Existing Bookmarks can be opened, but can´t be moved in the structure. - This issue exists since many Firefox versions. - The *.sqlite files are not write protected. - All Add Ons are switched off.

I have to close for each new start of Firefox all windows and so I am loosing the workflow :-(. Does anybody know about this issue? Many thanks Achim

All of a sudden I'm getting the Yahoo maiil ID changed to Google Mail with out any authorisation on my part ? I know Google owns Yahoo. I use Yahoo mail all the time and Yahoo is my ID for many applications so why has this happened ? If something like this can change unknowns to me does this mean that Google has control of my MAC and FireFox and its content .??

As soon as I open Firefox console it starts printing every mouse move or click I do into console. I never enabled such feature, maybe I might have pressed some shortcut since this is a fresh install.

This starts on any website I visit. Even if I try with `Private window` same issue happens, even with all add-ons turned off.
