I've been using Firefox for years without any issues. I recently added Facebook Container to my add-ons. Guess I can't tell if it's working, or not, but...

I have been having some real issues in FB for a few weeks, now, and am wondering if it is because of Facebook Container.

Responses are very laggy and jerky. When I place my cursor onto the Like button, the other options take some time to pop up. They will also take some time to show up once I click on them. If I accidentally cursor over the date and time line under a person's name, that black pop up box will stay popped up for a long, long time. That wouldn't be so bad, but it often covers text I'm trying to read. Often, when I try to click on the Like button, especially for a picture, it will lag, then the picture will pop open. In general, FB is just very laggy and jumpy.

Any ideas? Could it be FB Container causing these issues?

A website I use with Firefox is very, very slow, although it was fast in the past. When I try it on my wife's computer the website is fast, yet my computer is newer and better than hers, so there is some kind of problem in my computer. The website is www.statcan.gc.ca. I can access Twitter and numerous other websites on my computer with no problems, but this one is deathly slow. Trouble is...I use it all the time.

I am running macOS Catalina Ver 10.15.7 on a Mac Pro. I removed Adobe Flash, emptied the cache, history, cookies, reinstalled Firefox and rebooted my computer. Did not help. The statcan website worked fine for years and now it is deathly slow, apparently for me only. Other sites are normal speed. I am puzzled. Any suggestions appreciated.

I have searched and tried everything, but I cannot delete old bookmarks. I have tried to click on the blue bookmark star, delete from the edit tab, open all Bookmarks and try to right click and delete. Nothing happens, but I can add new bookmarks. The bookmarks window does not have an organize tab to manage the links that way either. Is there a glitch in the system for macbooks?

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

Hi I just downloaded Firefox. When you click on the menu bar icon it flickers and only displays after a couple clicks, same exact thing with context menu on any webpage as well as when I clicked the drop down menu to select the topic for this post.

also while using an online code editor, the tooltips that appear when you hover over your code are temporarily making the code disappear, seems to be issue with FF versus the online editor after investigating. Appreciate any troubleshooting suggestions, thanks.

Firefox sync has not been working for me for some time, and I'd like to get it operational again. I'm trying to sync between a Mac Pro (FF 81.0.2), a MacBook Pro (FF 81.0.2) and an iPhone 6 (FF Daylight 29.0). Nothing whatsover syncs.

So far, I've updated all browsers, and re-paired the iPhone with the QR code. I've also logged out of my FF accounts at the same time on all devices, and back in again. (That's what's recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-troubleshooting-and-tips#w_i-set-up-firefox-sync-but-nothing-is-syncing, though that links to a page that is said to be out of date).

I can't see any obvious errors in the computer names, or anything else.

Any suggestion for further investigation, please?

I've even deleted Firefox and started over, but that did not resolve the issue.

I need an expert in this to help me as I'm just not getting it...though I have tried many different configurations of FireFox's settings.

I have had Firefox for years on my IOS devices as well as my Mac OS lap tops. I replaced my10 year old macbook lap top in June and put on Firefox and now everytime I sign in I have to get a code sent to another e-mail address that is not on my lap top to put the code in on my lap top so I can continue to sign into Firefox. Why is this happening? This is beginning to be too much trouble to get on. Why is this necessary since having my new macbook laptop? I dont always have my Ipad or Iphone near me when I sign on to Firefox. This is also on my IOS devices. I have several e-mail and use Icloud email system just for that on lap top. Have gmail app seperate on desk top and aol on IOS devices or sign in from webmail.
