Hi,

just for understanding:

Why can the Firefox source code (view-source) of a website be nearly three times the size compared with Chrome/Opera or when I save the Firefox source code marked and copied and then pasted and saved via an editor?

Example: Firefox 546,6 KiB Chrome/Opera 204,3 KiB via Editor 204,3 KiB (marked and copied Firefox source code)

Best

I am getting the following error after updating my Firefox installation: XULRunner This profile was last used with a newer version of this application. Please create a new profile.

I have tried creating a new profile and deleting the old ones, restarting Firefox, and even uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it. The error still persists.

How can I get the error to quit popping up every time I open Firefox?

There’s right-click + “Forget about this site”, but that deletes the information for the entire second-level domain (say example.org).

When in the process of moving things from *.example.org to *.example.com peu à peu, then I need to be able to individually forget say chat.example.org because it’s already moved to chat.example.com but retain all information for other *.example.org hosts.

I provide IT support for an 80 year old friend. He uses Windows 7 and Firefox ESR. He has Firefox home as the home page. He had 3 rows of icons showing on Firefox homepage. However today the home page did not show any icons when Firefox was started. Since then about 10 websites have been visited but only 2 show on the home page (Settings Home Shortcuts [for sites saved or visited] is ticked with 3 rows specified. Saved bookmarks are still present as are the saved login credentials.

Any ideas as to why the home page 'lost' all the icons? Why are many of the visited sites not showing on the homepage and how can they be shown? Are there any criteria that apply before a visited website shows on the Firefox homepage?

Thanks for any advice.

Hello,

The Radar map fails, (attached) when View Radar click. I am on a TOSHIBA laptop and I do not notice any other graphics issue. I am using Firefox but other Browsers (Chrome etc) do the same. I am always up to date. There are no add-blockers enabled. I have to mention that on other machine Radar is loaded properly. I have this issue for more than 2 years at least. Can you help me with this please? Thanks!

Regards,

Brad

So, whenever I open Firefox it will act normally and then after a second close by itself and when I reopen it, it will be in remote mode. I know how to fix this via about:config and do this every time, but I would much prefer a permanent fix, nothing else on Firefox or my computer indicates something else is going on, its just this. I've even at one point uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help.

Firefox is failing to display text properly on pages. Paragraphs are getting whited out at seemingly random. If I zoom or highlight the missing part I can usually get it to show up.

I'm using the android mobile version.

I've tried: Clearing the cache Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox Deleting all add ons Restarting my device Changing font display sizes in Firefox and on my device

It's only Firefox, pages display properly when I try using a different browser. This has been an ongoing problem but its suddenly effecting huge chunks of text on all websites where previously it would only block a word or two on some websites.

(It was even effecting text while trying to type this ticket which is super annoying. )

I want to get rid of that url bar that pops up on the left bottom of the screen when you hover over a bookmark, a link on a page, a video... anything that leads to another web address. It disappears when you hover over it and changes to the right bottom of the screen. It appears when i'm trying to watch videos on sites when i'm in full screen and refuses to go away. I've tried the chrome folder solution posted here and it doesn't work. I've tried many other solutions online and they don't work either.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1372339

A few of the things that were supposed to be labeled as they were in the solution were not available on my new version of FF but I found the correct folder to post the chrome folder in regardless. The box to open the profile folder was further down and labeled differently than in the instructions posted from a year or more ago here.

I'm using a fresh install of windows 11 and the latest version of Fire Fox 115.0.2 64bit

Thank you in advance.

I use Better Open With on Android to have a choice of browser when opening links from apps. This has never affected how Firefox operates until the recent update.

Now, FF handles all links in any page as external and asks if I want to leave FF (and present the Better Open With options).

This behavior is not seen in any other browsers I have installed (FF Focus, Chrome, Kiwi, Opera). These browsers handle links on open pages correctly and open internally while also recognizing apps that are installed (Home Depot, etc).

Please fix Firefox to use itself for internally opened links!

I have 8 windows open all the time on my main Firefox, and switching between them is hard because the name is that of the last tab I used, which might not be very human-readable or might be similar to one on another window. It would be great if I could name my windows! Is there a way to do that? If not, could I request that as a future feature?
