When using Firefox, seemingly randomly the web browser will detect that the control button is pressed on the keyboard. There is nothing around the keyboard that has fallen on the control button, nor are sticky keys enabled in Windows 10. There been a few times now where I have been sitting back using the mouse only and Firefox to text at the control button is pressed and starts to zoom in or out because of that. The only way that I can stop it from happening is to click outside of Firefox on a different application and then go back. To attempt to fix this I've tried the following:

  1. restart firefox
  2. clear the cache, both manually and with ccleaner
  3. restarted windows
  4. checked for an update of firefox (I am at the latest version currently)
  5. diabled sticky keys in windows 10 completely
  6. tried a different keyboard

None of the above fixes have solved the problem that I am encountering. This issue does not happen in Google Chrome or any other application that I use it is specific to only Firefox. I looked for similar fixes before posting on here, and found two. One individual said that they fix this by changing their Wi-Fi adapter. I had tried to enable and disable this which had no effect. The second fix they said that they tried to restart the computer, which I have done no less than five times now in order try to solve is extremely irritating and functionality killing issue. Thanks guys.

I visit a website that hasn't upgraded to https yet. Whenever one of its pages times out (Firefox reports 'Unable to connect'), the location protocol changes from http to https. I suppose Firefox is trying to help me out by seeing if I typed in the wrong protocol.

This is annoying because I have to manually edit the address bar and remove the s from https and hit enter. I'd rather be able to refresh without thinking. Is there a way of turning this protocol changing functionality off?

Hello everyone!

Since the release of the new Firefox version 90 afterwards I have been using Firefox as I simply love surfing the internet with it as an alternative to chrome or chromium based browsers.

However, a small problem is annoying me: when I try to upload to iCloud.com or Google Drive, especially large ones, the upload speed is limited to 10 mbps, whereas I have an upload speed of 50 mbps.

On the other hand, when I try to upload on Chrome Browser or Edge Browser to both websites, the speed gets maxed out, literally maxed out by even 55 mbps!

I even tried to upload similar sized files simultaneously to Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Chrome and Edge finished while Firefox is still stuck on one third of the upload!

The strange thing though: when I open speedtest.net and measure the upload speed, it gives me on Firefox a speed of 50 mbps!

Any idea where the problem is? Any ideas how to speed up the upload and benefit from the max speed?

I am using latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Thank you!

I lost my Firefox profile data (amongst other files) after a hardware issue forced a repair and a factory reset. I purchased the EaseUS Data Recovery tool to try recover my Firefox data but am running into issues.

I located the two folders (one ending in ".default-release" and the other ending in ".default-release-1632317792925") from the PRE-reset file location C:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.

I then close Firefox, delete all of the folders from the same location in the POST-reset location of those same files, and paste the older folders in their place.

However, when I start Firefox, it only shows me POST-reset tabs. Am I doing something wrong?

When streaming "Cry Macho" on Windows 10, Firefox 92, with closed captions turned on, the captions appear on the screen 50-60 seconds prior to the actual audio. Tried the same with Chrome and it worked as it should so I guess it is a Firefox problem. Please advise.

Setting up a new Win10 machine, and trying to copy Firefox profile from old Win7 machine. First, I located the profile(s) on the old machine at:

   C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\2m1b67pe.<username>

Next, I copied (via network share) the file '2m1b67pe.<username>' to the new machine, at

  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles 
  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Next, I opened 'run' and executed 'firefox -p'.

When it opened, it only listed the default profiles, 'default' and 'default-release'.

So how do I get it to recognize the profile I copied?

I tell you, I have Firefox for a long time, it is my favorite browser, but a few weeks ago I forgot the password; a, I tried to change it, with the keys etc and I could not, so I decided to reset it, of course it hit me because I lost All my bookmarks in folders and in order ... well, the fact is that three days ago I think I went back to my firefox and suddenly I went back to my previous account, that is, as if I had not reset it, it was all there, but Also my problem with the password is back, I can not change it, supposedly I had already done it, but it appears the previous one to which I changed a few days ago, to which I cannot change because I do not remember, and I returned to the same thing, no I want to reset again because maybe the same thing happens, what should I do then? Can you help me change my password without losing everything again? It hadn't happened to me before and I don't know what to do, it all seemed very strange to me.

Thanks for reading and helping me.

I had to totally reload my OS, Firefox, etc as I lost everything and now trying to restore... Before this re-build, I was able to 'login' to a place that I had saved my ADD-ONS by logging in... Now I have recovered most of my ADD-ONS and want to save them to where I saved my previous one. But when I go to the ADD-ON page, I no longer see a LOGIN to save/retrieve my old ADD-ONS.

Did my crash delete my "acct" that saved my ADD-ONS, or did Mozilla do away with that feature?

Some websites that I use display the font Helvetica insead of the intented font. I only have this problem on Firefox. I do not have Helvetica installed, my default fonts (including advanced settings) are set to Arial. How could I fix this? I had provided 2 screenshots with Firefox and Chrome to see the difference.
