Hi! I've just tested my fiber connection (free.fr) and with Edge Chromium 81 the upload rate (nperf) is 100 Mbits/s faster than with firefox 76.

On the same server at the same time or nearly. Is it normal? Can I improve the score with firefox? thanks!

Well i0ve been reading lot of thread that describes this error, and none of them have a clear solution, so, im navigating normally on firefox while i work and suddenly if i need to download something from shutter it throws me this error, sometimes when im on slack the files that are being uploadded doesnt show and if i try to upload it doesnt work... recently i tried to change my profile, using firefox on another pc in the exact moment as the error show up, and also downgrading the about_config security level, i tried enabling DNS over HTTP and nothing worked, apparently ewhen i close and restart firefox it works, but it will continue showing up randomly and its kinda frustatring, it also happens on edge at the same time but on chrome it works... and i REALLY dont want to change from firefox to another browser... i really love this....

Dear community,

After my OS re-installation I was hoping and I was pretty sure, that my Firefox account is backing-up all of my bookmarks. I have done this again in the past and I had the bookmarks bar there always waiting for me intact. This time though I had to reset my Firefox account password as I forgot to store it somewhere and after that I managed to get access to my account but the bookmarks are nowhere to be found.

Is there a way to restore them without having a backup file (JSON or something else from the previous OS installation?). Is Mozilla storing these bookmarks somewhere so I can have them again but from the "cloud"? If not it is quite catastrophic for me. I hope there is a solution!

Thank you in advance!

Hi! im moving to firefrox from chrome and im really happy with it but the main trouble i have is that i work with one page in particular in wich i must load documentation, to make it i must click and then a pop up should appear (Is in the pop-up where i drag the documents and load them into the page). I've tried it with the latest firefox on Windows 10, a previous version of firefox on Windows 7, on ubuntu, with and without Add-ons and that page in particular wont let the pop-up appear. BUT! if i try it with my phone (with iOS) works completly fine. This thing is driving me crazy, for real. I dont understand why the pop-up wont appear on web but yes on mobile... PLEASE HELP! (Also, i gave the page the permissions to enable pop-ups and re-installed Adobe)

So I've been having a problem with Firefox. Every time I open Firefox the last add-on on the taskbar is grayed out and doesn't work properly, it also makes it impossible to open any website, it just load infinitely. I have disable/enable the last add-on on my task bar in order for Firefox to work properly. It's really annoying and it just started to be like that for about 2 week.

Hi. I am using Firefox for years, mainly due to it's increased security and privacy settings it provides. As you can see in the attached screenshots, I have set Firefox in Privacy & Security tab to Strict Tracking Protection and to Never remember history. The problem is that, when I close and reopen Firefox, NOT all cached content gets deleted automatically!

Please see my screenshot of Cookies and Site Data section. You will see that there is 1.1MB of Cached Web Content which is not deleted. If I don't manually delete this content (e.g. every week), the size of it gets grow to a very big number of MB (400-500MB).

Why Firefox is not deleting the Cached Web Content automatically since I told it explicitly to do it by choosing Never remember history?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. This happens in all of my PCs..

Is this a Bug?

When I try to edit my Squarespace site in Firefox 76.0.1, the elements do not behave correctly. I've had to use Chrome to manage my site instead. Squarespace was unable to help, so I was hoping someone here might be able to help! Firefox is infinitely better than Chrome and I'd much rather use it for my site editing.

The specific issue is that when I add a text block to a page, I am unable to actually add, select, or edit text. The cursor doesn't change to a text cursor, either. I've tried in a private tab to no avail and disable all add-ons.

Can anyone help?

I am finding it impossible to access the following website from within a private window or with Firefox set to Never remember history...

https://groceries.asda.com/

I see the cookie warning, the top banner of the page and a spinning green circle.

The website operates as expected on my PC with Chrome in incognito mode.

Similarly, the same issue occurs with Firefox Focus on my Android phone, but not with In Browser or Dolphin Zero.

This is no deal breaker for me but I am curious about what may be causing it to happen.

I need to download a Visio file with the file extension .vsdx from a program online where I must save the file to my computer. However, Firefox automatically labels the content type as a Firefox document, and adds htm at the end of the file. It does not matter if I change the document type to Visio, this continues to happen. It will even save the file as Firefox document, .vsdx.htm. Yes, I have checked my program defaults.

I really just need someone to help me change the code to make Firefox recognize that .vsdx is a forking Visio Drawing file, and not a Firefox document.

Thank you in advance.

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.


EDIT: Just noticed the edit button, added a cropped screenshot of the issue.

I am using Firefox Browser Version 76.01. (64-bit). When logged in to google account through Mozilla Firefox, I cannot log out of by clicking on the profile picture, as the click does not open the log out menu. And when using google image search, when an image is clicked it is unresponsive and the picture I clicked doesn't load. What can I DO? I tried many options which are there in various forums, but none of it solves the problem. Desperately thinking of abandoning using Firefox.

I thought my work email address was the primary but my work account (which I do not use at home) does not have a second email address set.

I have tried all other email addresses I have, and none of them have been set up - I've even tried using my university email and this has not been set up. I can't get into my account, and I can't reset the password or change the primary/secondary and I can't find any real support articles on this here or ways to contact Mozilla to ask for confirmation of the alleged primary connected to my email address.

Does anyone have any idea has to how I can resolve this?
