Before, I had bookmarked two websites: stackoverflow.com and stackoverflow.blog. I deleted the bookmark for the latter, but now every time I type stack in the search bar, to get Firefox to suggest me stackoverflow.com, instead the only suggestion returned is the blog.

What I tried: - typing stack in the search bar in a Private Window, didn't work.

Hi,

I've been experiencing a strange problem with Firefox.

If I click a link from an external app (e.g Outlook), it begins loading in Firefox but will then reset to my homepage which is Google. I am not doing anything to trigger this reset (holding any keys, etc) I am simply just clicking the link, which launches Firefox and resets from loading the link to my homepage. It's very frustrating.

Gmail has, everytime, for 3 straight months, constantly and semi-quickly, signs me out of every gmail account with and without presenting error code #2005. This issue can’t be caused by Google alone, because every Gmail account works perfectly on my roommate’s computer, on my smart phone and on my computer if I use Internet Explorer (which I haven't used for years). Yahoo mail, does interestingly, as will all other non-Gmail accounts, work flawlessly with Firefox. Perhaps the flaw is solely with Firefox when it handshakes with gmail's security protocol, because error code #2005 is what always pops up. Another error message says that Hangouts has not been signed in. And while I do have 2 phone numbers for two Gmail accounts, Gmail also signs me out of 4 other accounts that have no phone numbers.

Here's the list of troubleshooting steps attempted recently. If at all possible, I'd like to avoid resetting Firefox, unless I can see from your provision of the entire list of settings, what will be lost. Thank you, for your expert advice.

1. UPDATED BROWSER – DIDN’T WORK 2. REMOVED 25 VIRUSES – DIDN’T WORK 3. DISABLED ALL RECENTLY ADDED ADD-ONS – DIDN’T WORK 4. I’VE BEEN CLEARING HISTORY, COOKIES AND CACHE USING FIREFOX AND CC CLEANER DAILY AND FOR YEARS – DIDN’T WORK 5. USED CC CLEANER TO CLEAN UP REGISTRY – (EVERY COUPLE WEEKS FOR YEARS) – DIDN’T WORK 6. I REMOVED OVER 22 WINDOWS AND 1000 TABS – DIDN’T WORK 7. FIREFOX SETTINGS WAS JUST ALTERED TO CLOSE WITH CACHE AND COOKIES CLEANED OUT 8. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD WINDOWS SECURITY TURNED OFF – SO THAT’S NOT IT 9. I SIGNED INTO HANGOUTS FOR EACH OF 2 ACCOUNTS- STILL FAILS 10. It’s not the Windows software because Internet Explorer (which I hate using) works perfectly for days on end even after numerous sleep modes. 11. i Had this problem previously, but it mysteriously went away without troubleshooting anything that I can remember.

Im a recent convert to firefox, and have been consistently running into an issue with opening websites and links just after opening firefox.

The problem i am running into is when opening a link from the "newtab" page, it opens a blank page with no url. Additionally opening any links from external websites such as discord shows the same errors. It does appear to be reproducible, but only consistently with some websites (being twitter and reddit in my case)

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the normal firefox version, and have also tested it with the nightly builds. Did not fix the issue.

Hello, ever since about 3 days ago, the controls on tumblr have gone missing in my browser. At first, I had it happen in every browser and in the private mode, but after a day of that, it is now only happening in firefox anymore.

Explanation, in case it's unclear what I'm talking about: On every blog on tumblr that you open (URL.tumblr.com, for example https://staff.tumblr.com is the link to the blog of the tumblr-staff if you'd prefer an actual blog to look at), in the top right corner of the page, there should be a few buttons, depending on if it's your blog or if you're logged in or not varying between 'follow' and 'join tumblr', 'edit post', 'edit appearance', 'reblog' or 'like', things like that.

  • I'm not sure if that part helps with solving the issue, so just in case: From what I can tell, the controls use codes of iframe to work.
  • It is not specific to one blog on tumblr, the controls are gone on every blog/page I open.
  • I opened the pages in private mode and the controls are there. When I go to add-ons and disable everything, the controls still are not showing up though, so I don't think any add-on can be the cause.
  • It did work until a few days ago, and I didn't change any settings in my browser during the time.
  • I'm using the newest version of firefox (77.0.1), or at least I'm not getting shown any updates left to do in the 'about firefox'.

All that I can still think of to do is to try to refresh, or if that doesn't work completely un- and reinstall firefox, or maybe try an older version of ff if that still doesn't help, and I would really rather find a solution without taking such big measures, which is why I am asking here.

Is there maybe something else that private mode does that I could try to do to fix this?

Thank you in advance for the answers I might get!

So my friends and my partner like to send me TikToks throughout the day, and before the last update or so, it was working fine; every TikTok would open, and when I pressed play, it would play. Since, I believe, the last Firefox update, I can watch one (1) TikTok per browser session without issue (it won't load, as shown in the image I've attached). At that point, to watch more, I either have to use my phone, close and reopen Firefox, or refresh my browser, which was fine in the beginning, but now it's getting a little frustrating. I've attempted browser refresh, which doesn't remove the problem, and the site works fine without fail on Chrome and Edge, but I don't like either of those browsers since switching to Firefox 6 months ago. Ultimately I'm bringing it up because no one else has. If there's a way to fix it that I haven't found yet, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, it's still worth bringing up so it can be fixed. Any ideas?

I have no idea what is causing this to happen. It is also affected when connecting to google. It starts either after browsing for some time or having my computer wake up from sleep. Edge does not have this issue. The scenarios trigger it: youtube is in a tab and after a while I switch back and refresh it and have channel logos and/or thumbnails blank, opening a video in private mode and not connecting while normal does or vice-versa, not connecting after waking up from sleep and not opening in either normal or private mode.

The only way to fix it is through restarting the computer.

Also youtube seems to forget my autoplay setting when this situation appears.

I have tried disabling ublock origin and tracking protection to no avail.

The same settings are applied on another computer and that computer has no issues.

V 77.0.1. Windows 10

This is the message I get: Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.youtube.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I've been having this issue for a couple days now where if I place my cursor on any YouTube video progress bar, it starts to rapidly and repeatedly disappear and reappear. At this point, it's become an incredible annoyance that I have yet to find a solution to. I have visited a different thread that recommended disabling Firefox's hardware acceleration option located under preferences. I currently am using the Firefox browser on a Mac, and would appreciate any advice.

I'm practicing my Javascript with a very simple static HTML page.

I have a sticky footer on top set with CSS. I attached click events to the page's menu anchor tags to jump to the section in the page. Since the header is fixed, the jumped-to section will be covered by the fixed header's height. Therefore I have something like this in my JS script.

     elemTarget.scrollIntoView(true);
     window.scrollBy(0, -parseInt(fixedHeaderHeight.slice(0, 2)));

I have run this in the debugger and everything works in my script. The page gets scrolled back to header's height. However, when I keep on entering the scripts built-in Firefox I stumble upon a function that register's a click event in `content_script.js`.

this one:

window.addEventListener("click", function(e){

 if ( document.body.classList.contains("js-fbc-prompt-active") ) {
   const activePrompt = findActivePrompt();
   const activePromptTarget = document.querySelector(".fbc-has-badge.js-fbc-prompt-active");
   if ( !activePrompt.contains(e.target) && !activePromptTarget.contains(e.target) ) {
     closePrompt();
   }
 } else {
   contentScriptInit(true);
 }

});

after returning from the function above, window.scrollBy() gets undone, meaning that my section's title gets covered by my fixed header.

Why is this happening? Shouldn't this script NOT intervene with anything that happens in my own script?
