I have a VPN for work, some internal sites are inaccessible without this VPN. When I try to access them with the VPN turned off I legitimately get a 403. However, when I turn on the VPN firefox keeps showing 403 while other browsers work fine. This also works the other way around. When I turn off the VPN and try to go to one of the internal sites I don't get a 403 (as I should), instead firefox gets stuck at the page loading stage and nothing happens. There seems to be some kind of caching or optimization going on, but it's terribly interfering. Deleting cookies, caches, etc doesn't help at all. The only thing that helps in this situation is restarting firefox.

Hello, I have issues with Firefox developer version for couple months now, when I play videos, like youtube, or other sites they constantly lag. They play for like 1min and lag, continue for another 2min then lag etc etc. (even short videos on twitter lag). It was not like that before and I don't have this problem in other browsers. Does anyone know what can be the problem here? Thanks

Win10 with what was Firefox 89. I had already disabled the Proton UI on this installation, because it is horrible. Today Firefox decided to update to version 91. All of the Proton UI junk is back. I tried disabling it again, but nothing worked. Doing a web search, it appears that Mozilla has disabled the ability to turn off Proton.

I then set about to rollback the installation back to version 89. I found a Mozilla link on this, went to their ftp server and downloaded the installation files for the last version of 89. The installation went normally, but when I opened Firefox afterwards, a little box popped up saying something to the effect of "To keep your History and Bookmarks from possibly being corrupted, Firefox must create new user profile." I exited out of this and Firefox didn't start. I attempted to restart Firefox again and the same box popped up again. The only way to get past it was to click the accept button.

I did so and Firefox started. This was clearly not version 89. As the UI is junk, it took several minutes to find out that this was now the latest version of 92!!!! I'm absolutely positive that I downloaded the correct file. When I look through the update history, it doesn't even show todays version 89 installation as happening. What a piece of junk.

I then spent 20 minutes figuring out how to revert back to my user profile, not the new one that it had created for me. I then did some research on what had happened. Well it turns out that you can't actually rollback Firefox, despite what Mozilla says. For a while they have added "downgrade protection" which automatically creates the new user profile and stops your old profile from being accessed by it. So unless you want to figure out how to spend a hundred hours reconstructing bookmarks, passwords, settings, etc. it actually isn't possible to rollback Firefox. Doesn't this violate some Microsoft rules about being able to uninstall versions of software from within Windows? If you try to do this with Firefox and go back to a previous version it blows everything up.

Does anyone know how to actually rollback Firefox to a previous version, so that Proton can be disabled?

If I copy and paste any two words or more into the search bar on the new tab it goes to google.co.uk as that is set but only searches for the phrase minus the first word. If I paste it into the address bar everything is ok. If I do the same with a one word term the search bar does nothing having "lost" that word and the address bar works fine.

I just updated my Firefox Developer edition and it completely deleted every add on and customization I had on my browser. Same for Firefox for iOS.

I have an "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop but I have no real way to make it work with the newly downloaded and overwritten new browser.

Am I the only person who's really sad about this?

Also, on the iOS browser I'm no longer able to create a BLANK PAGE as a start page for BOTH HOME AND NEW TAB.

How do I create that? There's no option in the dropdown on the mobile settings. And it does not allow me to type in about:blank and then select in the mobile settings. It just stays red and then disappears when I try to do it again.

Why did you rearrange the furniture so HARD?????

Thank you, Still reinstalling all my add ons after 2 days, Jean

Greetings, One of the arguably most useful gestures for laptop users is still missing/broken on Firefox on windows. It's the two-finger swipe that allows to navigate forward or backward in history by swiping left or right.

This feature is present in Chrome and even Edge since many months, yet it has never worked on Firefox, on any of my windows devices.

I've been using Firefox Dev since 12+ months, keeping both it and windows 10 always up to date, the gestures never worked (yet they are activated in the about:config page, see attached images).

What's most disappointing is that the gestures work without any issue on the MacOS version of Firefox.


some useful info: Firefox version: 94.0b3 (latest as of today) Windows version: 21H1 build 19043.1266 (latest as of today)

If someone manages to get the two-finger swipe gesture to work on windows please let me know.

I hope this can get fixed soon, especially because the feature seems to be already built into Firefox, it just doesn't work in the windows release. In the meanwhile I'm switching to chrome

Whenever I use Firefox, I have an issue once a day where the browser freezes momentarily, flickers, blacks out tabs and other portions of the browser/text, and then resumes. I have had this issue since Day 1, and no amount of Windows updates + Firefox updates has resolved this.

This also occurred when I was using stable versions of Firefox ARM64.

Specs: Firefox ARM 92.0b8 64-bit Surface Pro X 2 (2020) OS: Windows 10 Pro v21H1, Build 19043.1165

Attached is a screenshot of what it usually looks like when this occurs. Please advise.

During my work i often need to have massive amount of tabs, and want to switch between them quickly. And i cant find solution to tab size change, aside of "workarounds" that are "planned to be shit down". Is there a way to do it on permanent basis? I don`t mind those tabs be wide as they are now (although prefer them to be smaller, about 6x times) if i can, for example, have second and third string of tabs. That should be sufficient. But still i cant find a way to do so. I also saw mention of "user feedback" in another thread (currently locked) and would be willing to participate in said feedback.
