Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

I am having trouble logging into my bank's website from Firefox. It's worked fine for several years and I have no clue what triggered it all of a sudden. Furthermore, I can log in just fine from various other browsers.

I have Google around on the issue for awhile now, and have troubleshooted several different things based on what I've Googled, such as clearing all site cookies, data, cache, etc. Also I had a pop-up blocker add-on but I removed it and that didn't do anything. Lastly, I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it without ANY add-ons, but it still doesn't work.

Details on what happens: I go to the log in page, and I put in my user and password and click to log in, and it does nothing. It just basically refreshes the page, so the page comes back up with blank user and password fields.

Any help/ideas on the matter would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Bonjour,

Lorsque je télécharge des fichiers que Firefox ne reconnaît pas, une fenêtre pop-up s'affiche pour me demander ce que Firefox doit faire avec le fichier. Je souhaiterais enregistrer ma réponse pour ne pas avoir cette fenêtre à chaque téléchargement.

(J'ai donc voulu suivre les instructions données sur cette page : https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/changer-ce-que-fait-firefox-lorsque-vous-cliquez-telechargez-fichier )

Cependant, l'option "toujours effectuer cette action pour ce type de fichier" n'apparaît pas chez moi. De plus je n'arrive pas à ajouter moi-même une ligne dans le tableau 'Applications' dans Options > Général. Y a-t-il un autre moyen d'enregistrer la comportement de Firefox avec un certain type de fichier ?

Hello. Is there a way to make Firefox colorize add-on icons (seen in gray here) like it does with the built-in ones?

When using the AlpenGlow theme, for instance, built-in icons are colorized while add-on icons are not (including official add-ons). See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to change this, or some workaround?

Within the last 2 weeks or so I get this error repeatedly when accessing secure sites that i used to be able to access with no issues. I use a private VPN and 2 factor authentication. Sometimes stopping the VPN momentarily fixes this, but for other sites, it's no go. This isn't an SSL or SEC error and a search on help forum didn't provide an answer.
