For the last few months, I have been experiencing a login problem with Vendor accounts (each one has a warning about using Firefox as my browser of choice) and the feedback I get from the Vendors is to change browsers. Is this some sort of Firefox payback or what - I am tired of this login problem and having to hold the hands of each Vendor. I don't know if the problem is with Firefox or the Vendors, but I have looked into loading a previous version of Firefox to see if the problem goes away, but can't find the way to load a previous version of Firefox. What to do about this login problem - should I change browsers? I can be reached by email for any suggestions or help!

My website 'achternamen.net' is 5 years old and attracts a constant daily average of 40 curious visitors the year around, mostly to find out if their own surname is included or pick up some amusing ones. It contains approx. 18.000 special and interesting dutch surnames of small families with up to 1.000 members, divided in 21 chapters. On about 100 pages and including the history of surname giving in The Netherlands. I work almost every day at adding new content.

Now there is a strong discrepancy in the ranking of my website in the important browsers and I wonder why. On google and bing for instance it is ranked on the second or third pages when you search, as usually, on the general term 'achternamen'. But strangely, I am not able to even locate my site on firefox!

I would like to know why that is, all the more because firefox has been for long years my standard browser and still is. So would you please investigate and overhaul my ranking position?

Thank you very much and ciao

Hello, I am using Firefox 80.0. Since the last update, some Comcast emails I send from Xfinity's web email portal have not been getting to their intended recipients. I get an email sent pop-up message. They show up in the sent folder. But they don't arrive where they are supposed to go. These are to clients I regularly correspond with so it's not a case of a typo in an email address. I get no notice that the emails did not arrive. I did several test emails to a Gmail account I use infrequently. They did not arrive. Then I decided to log in to my Comcast/Xfinity account on Google Chrome and send test emails from there and that worked. Anyone have any idea what's going on here? I really want to continue using Firefox for many reasons. Thank you. Regards, Slack

Trying to download Slack and Ebay apps -- both function on this computer but are not present as downloads -- read that "slack can be used in a web browser, but we recommend downloading" and think that that is how I am able to use it -- want it downloaded -- do I have to change setting on Firefox to make this happen. This computer came loaded with Windows 10 -- this is not an upgraded computer. Is my problem with Firefox or Windows 10.

This morning I discovered that FF has updated itself somehow (despite my setting things to ask and not install automatically - READ THIS MOZILLA - THIS POLICY SUCKS!)

In going to Ebay to complete and print a shipping label, I have to enter numeric data for weight and dimensions. Like never before, this new version shows these input fields in a manner (see attached) that makes it impossible to see the full values and it forces these stupid up/down arrows on me further making things painful. I opened the same page in Chrome and neither of these happen there.

How can I make FF just use normal, numeric input fields?

Thanks

Hello everyone

My problem is repeated Firefox a/c drop outs when using Firefox. - four or five a week. When re-logging back-in I have to go through the same routine of getting a OTP from Mozilla and putting it in to get back on. This has been going on for 4/5 months when for some reason Mozilla/Firefox thinks I am using a different device when I am absolutely not. I use the same PC on the same wi-fi provider using the same router, logins etc. A few months ago all my Lock-wise password details disappeared and I haven't seen them since ... arghhhh! Even when I put a few back in and manually sync them, they are gone at the next login. Something is not right here, but I am clueless as to what though ... any ideas folks?

Windows 10 64bit, up to date, latest Firefox installed. WiFi hasn't dropped out in literally years.

Dear Firefox community,

I recently aske the following question of the technical team for an on-line math app called 'ST Math' which is used throughout high schools, gradeschools and homeschools world-wide:

Hi Technical Team! Will you be incorporating Firefox as a supported browser with the launch of the soon-to-be updated ST Math? This is the preferred browser for our family for security, speed, and functionality reasons. Appreciate your assistance & looking forward to your response.

Their response: I'm sorry, but no, we do not have plans to support Firefox use as it does not support some of the required HTML and JavaScript functions in our system. MIND Support

Firefox is the only web browser not supported by this application; please will someone investigate this.

Sincerely & Respectfully,

A faithfull user of Firefox for over 10 years

I recently upgraded a computer (Dell Optiplex 390) to Windows 10 version 2004. I installed the latest version of Firefox Ver 80.0.1. I have no audio coming from the Firefox browser. All of my other browsers (Edge, Chrome) have good audio as well as all my media players (VLC, MS Media Player, etc.). For example when I play a YouTube music video there is no speaker icon in the YouTube tab. I can right click, and click 'Mute Tab' and the speaker icon appears with a slash through it. Firefox shows up in the audio mixer but there is no pulsing volume level bar to indicate a signal like there is on my other browsers and media players when playing audio. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice and even downgraded to Firefox version 79 but none of these actions restored Firefox sound. So since all of my other browsers and media programs all have good audio, I don't have a computer hardware problem or else none of them would work. Somehow Firefox is not sending an audio signal to my sound hardware. I saw a suggestion regarding the about:config entry browser.tabs.show.AudioPlayingIcon, but that entry was not present and was not present on my other computers running Firefox. This must be for an older version. Thanks for your help!

The below issue is only present on firefox and no other browser.

My google account is active, and I have no problem with other google sites like Gmail or Drive, but on youtube the behavior is inconsistent. In the upper right corner my user icon shows but the account menu items don't drop down. Further, a message on the left sidebar tells me to "sign in to like videos, comment, and subscribe." Even more oddly, I can still unlike videos or unsubscribe to channels, but I am unable to like or subscribe. I can also access private playlists available only within my account and remove videos, but not add them. It's bizarre.

Anyway, I troubleshot this to no avail in the following order: 1) disable my addons - failed 2) reopen in safe mode - failed 3) uninstalled addons - failed 4) cleared all history/cookies/etc. - failed 5) restored defaults to all settings and configurations - failed 6) refreshed/reinstalled the application - failed and finally 7) uninstalled firefox, deleted data in program files, program files (x86), %appdata%/roaming > installed newest firefox. The installation contained none of my prior data and looked entirely blank, but it too failed.

Having tried all this, youtube's behavior is identical to before the clean reinstall. The only thing I haven't tried is to fully reformat my entire computer. I understand this account problem is highly specific, but any troubleshooting step I missed before might be the key. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Iam about ready to give up on Firefox. My computer grinds to a halt after letting firefox idle. I have did al the suggestions to make changes in the services. It seems like the tabs I have open all start to slow down. You can see it in the task manager. Never had this problem before Windows 10 or at some point along the way with 10 it started. I have reloaded and did all the suggestions. But leave it sit and the disk fills up. Also it don't happen with Crome so I doubt it is my computer

Also like right now I have 5 tabs open but you go in task manager it says there are 12 opened?? I cant be the only one that has the problem.

I am looking for a solution to automate Firefox thorough an external process. I thought I could do this with Autohotkey library, Chrome dev tools and Firefox in debug mode but I have been advised its not secure nor private.

So I am wondering is there way to send/receive JS code or events to Firefox through another process such as Autohotkey or a windows program, Why?

  • Set URL of current tab to
