Since a week or two my Firefox tabs are crashing more and more often. At work on MacBook and at home on PC.

Deleting the cache and cookies and even starting in Safe Mode are not helping - in fact while writing this very message had 5 crashes meanwhile!

Don't know if you can access the crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/4cd570db-d90d-4fcb-aee6-0a1660230818

Some of the scripts are not loading or working properly, like clicking boxes and notifications on some sites. Most recently this happened on the New Statesman website, I doubt they haven't optimized their site for Firefox. Previously I encountered this on Gerogetown University's Management System platform, which according to IT should be fine with Firefox. I removed all the extensions, cleared the cache and cookies, tried troubleshooting mode, even reinstalled Firefox to no avail. I accept all cookies. Settings are default. The issue is specific to Firefox, Edge works fine. Please help, I don't want to migrate back to Edge.

Since a few days, it is not possible to copy-and-paste any external text or content into the text field of WhatApp Web on Firefox. It works fine on Chrome. Also text manually copied from a previous WA message can be pasted.

We tried on other PCs with Firefox and Chrome, same situation. So it seems to be a problem of Firefox latest version.

In other editors/browsers, when I select text block in multi-line textarea, it selects extra non-existing character at the end of line - see picture 1. When I try to move cursor without selection, there is no space at the end of line. I'd like to replicate this behavior in Firefox.

2nd picture - Firefox

Can I somehow replicate this behavior? - by changing browser settings, etc. - by editing site code - if possible this would be better.

I use WhatsApp in a Firefox web window so that I can copy, paste, and type using my keyboard. Suddenly beginning last week Firefox will not let me paste in the WhatsApp web window.

dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled is TRUE I still have the same issue in safe mode Ctrl-V, Shift insert, Right click & Paste, Right click & paste without formatting are all disabled.

It is only Firefox that has a problem (I can use WhatsApp in Chrome without issue). So far, it is only in WhatsApp (where paste is most important to me) that I have a problem.

I have Firefox 116.0.3 64 bit, the latest version, running in Windows 11, which is up to date.

Any ideas?

Prior to Firefox 116, I could have the normal scrollbar up and down buttons showing by making:

widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.allow-buttons True

But now it seems to have no effect. This is under Linux/Mint/Cinnamon. Also, now long-pressing is doing smooth scrolling (I never want smooth scrolling anywhere) and can't find a way to stop that.

I have these set from before:

widget.gtk.overlay-scrollbars.enabled false widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.round-thumb false widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.thumb-size .85 widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size 14 widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override 14 general.smoothScroll false general.smoothScroll.other false general.smoothScroll.lines false general.smoothScroll.pages false general.smoothScroll.pixels false general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel false mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled false toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll false ui.scrollToClick 0

Any suggestions appreciated.

Seems like it is always a fight retaining usable scrollbars in Firefox that do not hide, do not change size on mouse-over, do not "warp" on left click, do warp on center click, have a thumb that shows page size, have a background that is not white, and are not microscopic in size! Just call me "traditional"  :)

Thanks

There is no "Check for Updates in Settings > Updates, nor is there "Allow Firefox to"

So I cannot change any Update settings. ATM Firefox (now version 116) updates automatically and some tabs (youtube) stop working without any indication why. I would like to disable automatic updates but I can't. (AFAIK)

Why?

Using latest version of Firefox - 116.0

Unfortunately recently I have been unable to drag files out of the 'Downloads' At the same time, I noticed I can no longer copy images from pages.

I will right click, copy image and it just does not go into my clipboard.

In terms of the Downloads, I'd always download audio or video files and drag them straight into Premiere Pro - I can no longer do this. I cannot drag it outside of Premiere either, so it's not an Adobe bug.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

Hi, I'm using 116.0.3 (64-bit) Firefox, everything works perfectly except it takes so much time to start to load a page. For example, if I'm entering Google homepage it takes about 6-10 seconds just to start loading and then loads very quickly the page. Sometimes it does load it normally and very quickly but is not often. I love Firefox and I don't want to replace it, in Chrome it works fine. Please help me to find a solution. The problem started about 2-3 weeks ago. Thank you very much!

This is what I tried: -Using Safe Mode and Troubleshoot mode didn't change anything - Removing all the extensions - Deleting history, cache and cookies (using JV16 or PrivaZer or built in Firefox settings) - Refreshing Firefox - Deleting with JV16 to remove everything that is related to Firefox and reinstalling from the official site. - Disabling Hardware Acceleration - Disabling DNS Prefetch - Changing DNS (1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8 or default by supplier) - Using custom config settings following this guide: ("Make Firefox fast again")

I have an account at Walmart.com. After the last time I placed an order, something changed. Now, just for simply going to their online site to browse, the page immediately rolls over to a login page. I cannot access the site simply to shop at all, without Walmart forcing me to sign in. This is annoying enough that I am considering canceling my Walmart account and shopping with other retailers. There is plenty of competition out there. This does not happen (as far as I know) with Chrome or edge, the browsers that do not prefer to use.
