New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

Can anyone tell me why the following html code doesn't work:

<audio autoplay>
  <source src="file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.
</audio>

I must say, it does work in Microsoft Edge, but in no other browser, including Firefox. And how could I make it work? I want the audio file to start playing when the page is opened, in the background, no controls, no loops...

Thanks in advance for any help.

When I try to send email I get this, and I cannot send the email : "Login to server smtp.googlemail.com with username (my email username) failed. I can however receive email.

Everything was cool this morning, but the problem started later in the day. It asks me to reenter my password, but that does not solve the problem. I can send email from the Gmail app however.

My ISP is AT&T DSL. OS is Win10 Pro. I'm using Windows Security, will not work with firewalls on or off. Version of Thunderbird is 78.8.0 Last update was 02 March, and I was able to send after that update. I tried resetting the TLS to 1 from 3, and that didn't help.

Screenshot is attached. Please help!!!

Hi,

I'm the administrator for Dol Celeb, a website and there is some years ago, i've created an account for themes : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/dol-celeb/

We have changed or website design and i'd like to create a new theme for my community. The problem, i've no longer access to this account and i've no idea how to retrieve it. I've still got all Dol Celeb mail address but that seems no one is the related to this account.

Is there a way to do something ? It should be nice to retrieve this official page we have created.

Thanks by advance for your help

Some days ago I noticed a change in the outfit of the firefox basic website: It concerns the upper menue-line. There is still in the right upper corner the `x ´ , the sign for closing the page.( note the red flash in my picture!) But I am missing the `-´ and the square sign, with which I can hide and open a hidden page. So I don´t know, how to switch between several pages, i.e., I can´t make dissappear this page, in order to use the translation page.

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

When I typed any search shortcut (let's say "w" for Wikipedia) and then Space in the address bar, the bar would have just shown "w ".

After an update to 86, now typing "w " shows "Wikipedia" in a blue box instead of "w ". This is extremely irritating because I now can't just press Alt+D and enter a new search shortcut from scratch when I mistyped.

I have both browser.urlbar.update1 and browser.urlbar.update2 set to false.
