When using "send tab to device", the submenu previously showed all synced devices, in my case, more than 10 devices. Recently it only shows 4 devices and there is no way to access the other ones. Is this broken or is it a recent change? If so, can I revert the behavior with a preference?

Under "manage devices", I still see all of my synced devices, they just don't show up in the "send to device" submenu.

Ever since Firefox updated today I've been unable to use the browser. It takes at least 5 minutes or more minutes to load, I can't manually log into any websites until the speeddial finally loads, and the speeddial addon refuses to come up for at least 5 minutes, I can't log into Dropbox even with the speeddial up and running because the capcha won't popup...and on and on.

What in the world has been done to it? I'm using another browser just to contact support.

(sorry for my english)

I recently uprgraded Firefox from 102.0.1 to 109.0.1. UI went bigger, but I already searched that I had to create ui.textScaleFactor and set to 100 in about:config and to change browser.display.os-zoom-behavior to 0.

After these changes UI went normal again. Except one case: when I go to youtube and go fullscreen, then when I go back from fullscreen, my UI is going to bigger again - despite ui.textScaleFactor is 100 and browser.display.os-zoom-behavior is 0.

I need to restart Firefox and after restarting everyhing is normal (UI is not big).

The problem is: UI is going to bigger after youtube fullscreen and I need to restart the browser to go back to normal.

So this is weird. I noticed slow downs on all internet connections, and after trial and error discovered that if I make any kind of search on Google, my wifi connection to my router would begin to disconnect and reconnect every 5 seconds. I've verified this by having command prompt keep a continuous ping to my router (ping 192.168.1.1 -t). The problem still happens in troubleshoot mode, and with all extensions and add-ons disabled. It doesn't happen from other search engine websites (bing), and it doesn't happen in other google services (gmail, google maps, youtube) or is caused by the Google homepage. I also don't have this issue when doing a Google search on other browsers. The only way I've found to fix it is to close Firefox, let the cache clear, and reopen the browser with any Google search tabs closed. I've only noticed this issue recently, and as Firefox has been my main browser for the last decade, and Google my primary search engine, I'd be extremely appreciative if I could get some help finding and fixing the cause of this.

The attached image is the ping timeouts cause by making a search on Google.

When you open a web site, a tab is created. And, obviously, if you have more then one site open, they're all there. But I just noticed that with the fourth tab, they stop being visible, and there's arrows on the far left (and right). So if you have five or six pages open and you want to go back to the first tab/web site, you have to hit the arrow on the far left to make that tab visible, and then click on the tab.

So they went from one step/click to two. Why do they do this? If it aint broke, don't fix it!

I don't want it like this. I want all the tabs there, without any arrows. Just like it always was. How do I get it back to what it was?

Firefox updated today. Right after, I noticed that my Group Speed Dial took several minutes to load everytime I launched the browser or opened a new tab. After several minutes the browser would load and the tabs were fine. While the browser was loading I also couldn't open the Tools menu and click on anything. Nothing would come up. I've already cleared out my cache, etc. but it hasn't helped. Can you help?

Firefox now sometimes seems to hang on some favourite sites: Task Manager reveals up to 24 tabs/windows open (the number in parentheses after the app name) and Disk C is 100% active. It can stay this way for ten minutes with no change on the monitor and mouse clicks do nothing. If you kill Firefox via Task Manager and try to restart, you can get a splash screen that it's still running and do I want to close it. Sure enough, there's seven line items for Firefox in Task Manager. I use Trend Micro as anti-virus software but I can't figure out what the problem is. Any ides?

When I try to use the sign in through google function (such as the popup created by soundcloud or third party clients, like the Riot Games launcher), as well as just signing into google normally, the page prompting me for my email loads fine. However, when I provide my email, regardless of account, loading the prompt for my password takes a very long time, ~1-2 minutes. The page just spins infinitely, doesn't show any considerable usage in firefox's task manager, and doesn't give any errors in the process. The problem doesn't happen in another web browser, such as chrome. What's strange is that, AFAIK, the only two processes affected are the google login, and amazon checkout. I can hit the checkout button on amazon, but the page will simply load eternally. If I look at amazon through other means, such as my phone, I can see that the order I just checked out HAS been created and paid for, but firefox is caught on something and never loads the order complete page. Other logins and loading processes are not affected. Some (I have been trying to fix this for days and cannot remember all) of the troubleshooting steps I've taken are- -Manually removing all extensions -Disabling Window's Defender's browser protection -Running Firefox in safe mode -Completely refreshing firefox, wiping all settings, cookies, cache, and logins -Disabling tracking protection (although the indicator shield shows no activity on google's sites) -Double checking the cross-site cookie protocol (I've had the automatic five-exception set up, and have never been prompted about it before -Given the nature of the sites with issues (google, youtube, and amazon) I even checked for evidence of the Trojan mentioned here to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-show-spinning-wheel-never-finish-load

Environment: Windows 10 22h2 clients, latest ESR build, Domain servers Windows 2016 or better.

So I followed the guide https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#extensionsettings and tried to set up the config. We are using the latest ESR build but after the settings is applied I still dont have working extensions.

Here is the code

}

I have placed the settings in HKCU but also tried in HKLM and there has been no difference. in each case I get Unable to parse JSON for Extensionsettings when checking the about:policies section and when I look at the registry I see the REG_MULTI_SZ value but when i click on it to read it I get another error message. Cannot edit ExtensionSettings: Error reading the values contents.

I tried re-entering the code and tried not listing the install URLs and even tried only listing 1 item. I haven't been able to get past this error so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone. I have a kind of weird problem, Firefox won't let me tweet links....... tweet button is grated out and popup says Save or Delete Tweet. I assumed it was a Twitter problem since it happened with both my accounts, but when i try with Chrome, links post and work (tweets). I tried Firefox Safe Mode, and Refreshing Firefox, plus ran numerous antivirus scans, none repaired the problem. Big FF fan, have always used it and i donate every year to the Mozilla Foundation and would rather not have to use Chrome. Needless to say, after using FF so long i have many Bookmarks and Passwords saved. Thanks for any advice.
