When I read content on a web page, I like to use the up and down arrows and PgUp PgDn to go through it. I hate having to reach over for the mouse and line everything up to go to the next screen. Since the last update, it seems I can't do that. When I hit the down arrow, or the PgDn key, it skips randomly down the page. This is especially true if I am reading an article with pictures in it. I think this might have something to do with my clicking yes to an inquiry from Firefox that just appeared on the page while I was browsing. It asked whether I wanted to be able to block text with keyboard commands. I'd like to change it back to whatever it was before, but can't figure out how to do that. Bill

I need to edit a website in WebFlow. But when I log into the admin for the site, I get the attached dialog saying I need to make sure that Firefox accepts third-party cookies. I turned off the Cookies setting in Privacy-Security, but that didn't help. How do I turn off blocking third-party cookies?

I want to disable private browsing so it's not easy to use.

We all know what we do on private browsing and I want to put up as many roadblocks as possible to prevent that. You and I both know that 99% of the private browsing isn't banking or Christmas gift shopping.

Adding this feature in the settings has the potential to make your browser extremely popular amongst those of us who want to live better lives. It would be free advertising, and I know many people who would make the switch to Firefox as a result. Maybe only make it available in your Beta, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thank you for your consideration.

When typing it comes behind al lot. It happens in input fieds, when typing in the adress bar. I also get lag when scrolling. I have tried all the thinks i can find. I have used troubleshooting mode, disables the addons i use (its just dark reader and uBlock orign). I also dont see a high CPU usage or RAM usage. I have disabled and enabled hardware acceleration, smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. Next to that i have also reinstall firefox. Today i also tried to make an new profile. Still got the same problem. It has not crashed yet so i couldn't find crash logs or something the kind. I have dual boot and on windows and don't have this problem there.

If you need some system information or other information, ill provide.

Hi II am a relative computer novice and I am confused by the concept of deleting cache and cookies.

I am having trouble with Firefox browser on Vanguard website. I was told to clear my cache and/or cookies.

I don't currently store any Vanguard passwords on my computer.

However, I’m afraid that if I clear cache or clear cookies I will inadvertently remove the passwords for all my other websites.

Is there a way to clear cache and clear cookies without deleting passwords?

New Tab Shortcuts wiped out by Sync

Hi all, I suspect I'm out of luck but I'm hoping someone might have some ideas ... I'm using Firefox 94.0.2 and I have become a big fan of the ability to pin shortcuts/bookmarks to tiles in the New Tab screen. I customized my New Tab with 9 rows of tiles, 72 pinned sites, a very useful & convenient feature.

I got a new laptop for work, installed Firefox and logged into my Firefox account. I ran Sync to copy some open tabs over to the browser in my old laptop. Somehow the sync picked up the setting of having 72 tiles on the New Tab page, on the new laptop, which was great; but instead of my pinned sites, the 72 tiles were populated by random sites (presumably pulled out of browsing history). No worries; I'd expected that I'd have to manually configure the new laptop's browser anyway.

But then when i logged into my old laptop this morning I was dismayed to see that the pinned sites were gone! The 72 tiles are still there, but the pinned sites have been replaced by random ones. Now I'll have to reconfigure my old laptop's browser as well. :-(

My question: is there any way to restore the previous pinned sites without having to re-pin them all manually? And once they're all back in place, is there some way to export/save/lock them, so this won't happen again? If having Sync enabled across my two devices is going to randomly wipe out my pinned sites, then I suppose the New Tab tile functionality is not so useful and I'll just use an old-fashioned Bookmark list.

Thanks in advance for any insights!

I keep a few windows open normally - each window has a number of tabs.

Every time I close firefox, whether it's to restart my mac or just to quit and re-open the application, every window opens up but I cannot see it. When I click the firefox icon in my dock, it shows the list of windows, but when I select one, nothing comes up on my screen.

The workaround I have found is to select the window and then go to the menubar and select VIEW > Enter Full Screen. This then maximizes the previously invisible window. I can then minimize the window and adjust the size as I prefer.

Why is this happening? This has been going on for about a year, through various Mac OS updates as well as Firefox updates.

I want to change my default home page to cnn.com. I go to Preference>Home>HomePage and New Windows, and then select the dropdown box and enter custom URL, where I enter the full URL for CNN.com. I then select General or Search (or any other option on the main left bar). Going back to Home, and it shows CNN.com as the default home page. So far so good. Exit FireFox and restart it, and now the default home page is set back FireFox home.

This should not be that difficult to just set a new homepage. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated. PS - I am on Mac, using MacOS>Monterey.

Thanks Michael

Firefox has arranged my extensions alphabetically. I would prefer to group them functionally, or at least be able to separate those which have similar colors -- for example, Grammarly and Evernote are both green and I sometimes click on one when I want the other. I would also like to have the one I use most at the far right of the toolbar.

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.
