Hi, I am using FF v80.0.1 on ubuntu 18.04.

I noticed that whenever a tab is loading there is now a static (non-spinning) icon. Previously it was spinning. I want it to spin.

In changelog for 80.0 it says:

> For users with reduced motion settings, we’ve reduced a number of animations such as tab loading to reduce motion for users with migraines and epilepsy.

Is there a way to disable this feature?

Hello, I have a problem with YouTube from my PC. I was already signed in my account and suddenly today I cant's see anywhere the option "Switch accounts" and "sing out" when I click on my picture up on the right edge. Also, even though I am singed in and I can see my picture on up on the right edge, at the same time I see on the left, the icon to sign in (it is under history) and I don't see my playlists. However if I click on "Library" (above history) on the new page I see my playlists. If I click on the sign in on the left side (under history) it shows me it shows me again to sign in (even though I had signed in before and I could see my picture on the top of the right corner), I click on my icon and I read: 405. That’s an error. The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/guide. That’s all we know.

It seems like I am signed in, but at the same time not signed in. It's very strange and it has never happened to me. Firefox is updated. On my mobile I don't have any problem. I used Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge and I don't have any problem. Everything is OK there. Only with Firefox on PC I have this problem. I cleared the Cache and Cookies and restarted it, but the problem remains. I also turned off all my add-ons and it didn't fix the problem. What to do? Please, I need your help.

Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case.

I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits, for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the 405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist. That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken.

What can I do? Thank you.

I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Please note that my question is not about preserving preferences. I've searched and found many Q&A threads on preference preservation, but I don't think that is my problem or issue.

What I'd like to do is to make some Ubuntu desktop menu shortcuts to launch specific web-based apps, in individual windows (I suppose separate instances and new-window) of specific size, with a given specific URL, hopefully with it's own icon, sort-of replacement of desktop apps. So in the Desktop menu I should be able to see 'Google Meet' (for instance) as an application with it's own icon, but clicking it launches Firefox with Google Meet's URL, and a window that is just 800x600 in size.

However, when I try to launch windows on Ubuntu MATE (also tried Lubuntu, and standard Ubuntu... all 20.04), firefox seems to ignore --window-size command line parameter, and all new windows are of exactly same size, which is the default size apparently, ignoring the command-line parameter. What gives ? How can I do what I am trying to as explained above (from firefox standpoint... I know how to create Ubuntu .desktop file etc.).

cheers, B

After removing and downloading Firefox again recently, I have begun to run into characters not displaying on websites. Nearly every site is subject to this issue, where characters display as little boxes with numbers inside them. After looking around, I have verified that I am allowing sites to specify their own font, and that I don't have any fonts blocked under about:config. I am running Firefox 80.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.
