there was a feature which allowed to stop smooth scrolling animation before it reaches the end and it allowed to stop it more precisely where you want it. With the last update-this feature was gone, why?

need to recover bookmarks WITHOUT using Mozilla standard proceedures - had catastrophy

My 11y/o Win7 Pro x64 based water cooled monster finally failed taking the Intel DX79si m/b, the PNY Nvidea GTX980 and 2 of the 8 - 8gb mem sticks with it. The 16TB and 8TB add-in raid cards survived thank god. Also salvaged was the 250GB Samsung EVO SSD "C" drive. It was cloned to a duplicate the 1st day of every month. (No, it hasn't been overclocked in 8+ years, and even then I had the shut down temps set @ 50c). New m/b, processor, video card, memory, and unfortunately, Win10 Pro x64. All do in Friday. :-(. This old (76) man is gonna have to learn all over again:-( ( 'cept this time it's air-cooled and VERY conservative :-) )

My problem is the several hundred bookmarks I had in Firefox (I'm a LONGTIME user. I DON'T want to loose them. I've got the salvaged "C" drive SSD in a mini-dock (D:/ in the laptop) and I'm looking at them on my laptop (also Win7 Pro x64 based) ALL the files appear to be there at the time of the failure. I've already copied a bunch of the files from it so I'm not shut off completely. When I try to use the Mozilla feature to transfer them, it appears it want's to re-install & rewrite Firefox on the D:/ drive. NOT good. Isn't there a single (even multiple) file(s) that can be copied to C:\ so I can disconnect the mini-dock and THEN "import" them?

THANK YOU !!!!

Hi, I use a PC under W7.

with FF88, the zone of the activated/unused tabs was above the screen, below the listed tabs bar (like in the snapshot).

With FF89, this zone is now empty (background in blue in the snapshot) and only the active tab appears below the window (on the right down in the snapshot for the current tab).

It makes FF simply unusable ! Need your help to come back to a normal situation : all tabs in the blue bar where they were.

thanks a lot for your help. Regards, Philippe

I've received 0 responses from 4 days ago when I posted that since the update to 90.0.2 there are portions of the home page and web pages that block out periodically. I ran Firefox in safe mode and the problem disappeared, I performed a refresh of Firefox and restarted my machine. The blocking or as one other person described it as shadowing still happens but not as bad. I wasn't having any problems with the 2 previous versions at all so I would like to know if something is going to be done about this? Is anyone else having the same problem as I am. I haven't any extensions running, I turned off hardware acceleration so what else can I do?

Resources (JS, images, etc) only partially load unless bypassing cache after Firefox v100.0.2 update?

When I load a page the first time, everything loads normally. Then if I refresh the page with CTRL-R, resources on the page (such as .js files) very often (seemingly 75% of the time) only partially load and therefore parse errors occur in the console. To reload a page, I have to hit CTRL-SHIFT-R to bypass cache and then the page loads normally again. I can also just launch the page in a private window (this loads properly), close the window and launch it again in another private window (this loads perfectly still) but it's becoming a chore to juggle with private windows only to reload a page I'm working on. I can see the resources loaded under the NETWORK tab in the console but they don't seem to be available to the page renderer or something.

Is this a bug in v100.0.2 or was I only having a bad weekend and all of this is just a random glitch that will go away soon? I've never had a problem like this with any previous Firefox releases (even v100.0) and I've used FF for approximately 15 years. It immediately began to happen after the v100.0.2 update!

What I have done so far:

- Exit out of Firefox and launch it again. - Rebooted the computer. - Site Information > Clear Cookies & Site Data - Waited 2 days for another FF release in case this was a bug and it rapidly got fixed (no update rolled out since). - Help > More Troubleshooting Information > Clear Startup Cache

Am I going crazy or?

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.cdc.gov.

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.

Dear Community,

Something I use every day for work is the Google search for "hotels near Brooklyn, NY" (for example or any address in different cities), which I then choose the first photo map result.

And almost always, even while in troubleshooting safe mode), the map will always load (and expand and contract), but unfortunately the hotel description results on the left will not populate (even though it begins to populate - and then disappears. When it doesn't, I constantly have to reload the page to make it work. I haven't seen this problem in 5 years, and Google Chrome (which I hate using, but used to test against Firefox) has no problems loading the page each and every time (regardless of the address or city name I use). This began occurring within seconds of updating to the latest Firefox version. I suggest experimenting a few times so you can see the problem develop. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page and select page 2, to also see this lack of population.
