I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

Today i turned on firefox running the latest ubuntu platform and had colored squares and dots all over the web pages. If I move the mouse or type the squares colored black, blue, aqua and green move with the mouse or typing all over the display like snow. I have gone over the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reloaded mozilla firefox. The only way I can stop this is to go to safe mode. I have downloaded two other browsers today and do not have this problem with the other two browsers, or with any of the software programs on the computer. Any ideas?

This was not an issue until v3.57 and beyond. It looks like lines are written on top of each other. Most forms are unreadable and you see or fill in any online forms. I could easily provide many screen shots.Seveal versions ago Mozilla sent me an add-on that completely fixed the issue. I cannot remember the name of the add-on and have exhausted my search. But it exists. Mozilla tech guy responded to my question with a link. Unfortunately, I can't find it any longer. He said it had to do with high dpi settings and the 16x9 format of the Samsung I use as a monitor.

Firefox has always redirected me to the german versions of most websites, however these sites usually have a way to direct yourself back to the American version of the website. Unfortunately, that does not seem to work anymore. I use to be able to select, yahoo.com in the corner of de.yahoo.com, however now those navigation buttons only take me right back to the german versions.

Hi,starting form yesterday the feedback button in Firefox 4.0 beta 2 isn't working anymore,it redirects to the download page for 4.0 beta 2 telling I have to upgrade to the latest version to use the feedback function-anybody know what's going on? I've already reset to default general.useragent.extra.firefox and general.useragent.locale,still doesn't work-thanks

Edit:well,as someone pointed out on the Input Dashboard,changing general.useragent.extra.firefox to 4.0b3 makes the feedback function work again,however I'm not sure if the message then actually appears on the dashboard-very strange,hope it gets fixed ASAP.
