This issue just randomly started; I don't remember Firefox doing an update. I've tried to navigate through some of the menus but it isn't responding as one would hope.

This is on a new MacBook that's less than a month old, so it's a fairly new install.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm finding that I'm winding up with multiple instances of firefox running. I don't mean multiple windows but multiple sessions of firefox itself where each one has however many windows/tabs that I may have open managed under each instance. As an example, right now on one of my machines, I see two different two different instances when I attempt to Send Tab To Device (see Groot in attachment). This has lead to me losing session data as it seems that only one instance is managed by the restore feature. I don't consider that only one instance being restored a bug but maybe devs think different; I'm not questioning the session restore feature operation here. What I'm asking here is how to merge multiple instances down to one so that sessions restore will recover all my windows/tabs. How do I figure out which windows/tabs are with which instance? How do I know which instance will be restored?

Possible Feature Request: I don't know if multiple instances being started is self inflicted or a by product of some firefox operation encountered during use; I've not deliberately started separate instances. What would be cool is a feature that only allows one instance to be running at a time. This feature could warn if there is already a managed instance running if another attempts to start and help to prevent future possible lose of session data.

I just installed Firefox (64-bit) v 78.0.1.

Here is the problem---> I am trying to delete individual items/urls from the search drop down menu. The usual/previous way to do this was to use the cursor to highlight the item to be deleted and click SHIFT+DELETE.

This does not seem to work. Additionally, when I went to the HELP page to discover how to do this, it indicates using the procedure above--which does not work.

I thought having reported this problem long (I'd say years) ago - but still I have to use other browsers when I want to print many websites into a Pdf-file: Firefox creates only one page. E. g. when checking files on virustotal.com I keep a Pdf-file with the results. This needs usually two or three pages - but firefox creates just one. If I zoom it down to 40 % everything fits in that single page. But I'd rather have a file which I don't have to zoom up before I am able to read the contents ... When I use e. g. Opera several pages are created

Hi, I've got a problem with sound with few websites. I'm using 2 sound devices, my headset and my 2nd TV screen which have speakers. For example I got problem with twitter and google translator. When I try to play a sound from both of these sites when I'm using my headset as my default sound output, it doesn't work, there is no sound at all but when I change to my TV screen it plays these sounds. I have no problem with youtube, netlfix or other steaming platforms. I've just noticed that problem with these 2 websites, I don't know about other websites. Oh, and on 9gag I got similar problem but not every video is without sound, some of them has a sound and some of them hasn't. My device is set to default as in attached image.

If I check my internet speed in Firefox using various speed test websites, it shows 50Mb download, and upload shows about 9Mb. In any other Browser it reports 70Mb down and 20Mb up. It has been 70 up & 20 down for some years. If I restart Firefox in safe mode, I get 70Mb / 20Mb as expected. If I remove Add-ins, it is still slow. I tried a refresh, and it's still slow. I have no extensions, themes and have turned hardware acceleration off. Changing the proxy settings doesn't help either.

I’m building an Angular application that is using OAuth2 Auth Code w/PKCE. The app uses hidden iframes to silently renew access tokens. I found that when the OAuth2 authorization serve redirects the iFrame to {parent origin}/silent-refresh.html with a 302, Firefox does not send any cookies set with SameSite: Lax.

SameSite: None cookies are sent as expected.

I compared this with IE and Chrome and both of those browser send the Lax cookies on when redirecting due to a 302.

This problem seems to only occur when the iFrame is being redirected via 302 from a different origin. I.e requests from a basic iFrame to the parent page origin send Lax cookies with no problem.

Anyone experience this? Is this expected behavior for Firefox?

I have always clicked on the Firefox icon which I have pinned to my taskbar and the home page which I have assigned in "options"..... https://www.yahoo.com/..... would open in a new tab as I also have set in "options".

After updating to the current 78.0.1..... all I get now is a blank new tab.....

If I click on the home page icon in the upper left hand corner..... I go to my home page as expected which opens in a new tab as expected..... and once Firefox is opened..... if I click on the Firefox icon in my taskbar..... the home page opens in a new tab as expected.....

Therefore..... the problem is..... FIREFOX MUST FIRST BE OPENED in order for the home page designator to be recognized and open in a new tab.....

IF IT IS NOT FIRST OPENED..... Firefox opens a new bank tab..... then..... once it opens..... it functions as it should..... and as it always has in the past.....

I'm sure that this is some setting that has inadvertently been changed during the update..... and if you know how to correct my problem..... which I'm sure many many others are experiencing..... please let me know.....

However..... I have read a couple other topics which I'm confident are referring to this same problem..... and the responses are doing nothing more than explaining how to set the home page or something which falls under the "setup" category.....

Please..... give me some credit..... The problem I'm describing has nothing to do with the user's end or something I'm not doing or haven't done..... and everything to do with the developer and the update.....

Thanks!
