Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

How to automatically select (jump to) tab sent (shared) from another device on Firefox Sync account

Hello,

I use Firefox on a few devices, one of them being Mac connected to a projector. When I share tabs (url) from any device to the Mac, it receives it, loads it on a new tab to the right of the active tab, but it doesn't switch to it automatically. The tab shows a blue dot until I manually click on it.

Is there a way to auto switch the tab that was just received?

This is not related to the "When I Open a Link in a New Tab, Switch to it Immediately" option in preferences, which only changes the behavior of links opened on the same machine, but not the ones sent from another device.

I want to achieve this mainly to automatically play YouTube videos on the projector, but also other pages that I would like to see on the big screen without having to reach the mouse on the mac.

I guess this should be supported natively, but looking at the about:config I couldn't find anything obvious. I only wan to use third party extensions as a last option.

Cheers! Airton

Bill Pay list items 3 3/8 inches wide, otherwise proportional. But SO small it can’t be read! Just started doing this last evening. Called Bill Pay support at BofA. We tried deleting history, cookies, cache, etc. to no avail. They said they had never heard of that problem before. Could it possibly be due to a Firefox update? I have bills to pay!!!

I tried Chrome (I hate Chrome, BTW!) and it works there, but not in Firefox. I've been a Firefox customer for many years and have never had any problem. I was wondering, since every time Microsoft updated my Windows 7, something didn't work anymore. Every time! (Which of course they don't anymore.) HELP!

I then re-generated a recovery key and tried again. No luck. I’m scratching my head on this one. Any help is appreciated.

I recently got a new computer and could not download Firefox. I have tried several different ways and keep getting the same results. On Microsoft Edge when I’d click download it would say the page can’t be reached. So, I tried Chrome, and it says that it isn’t connected to Internet. It is only when trying to download Firefox when I encounter this issue.

I have a corruption of a “search” link in my bookmarks. I would like to learn how to , through software or other means, remove these thousands of bookmarks on the computer and then sync the good copy to the cloud. There is a special file Firefox produces on windows 10 machines that is large - due to this corruption? I would not like to delete the computer file since I would lose the good bookmarks also.

I want to export ALL the bookmarks in Firefox. I'm able to export everything except the Mobile Bookmarks folder. These are primarily bookmarks created on my iPad using Firefox for iPadOS. Every export to html excludes the Mobile Bookmarks folder. What's the secret, or does Firefox not support exporting Mobile Bookmarks? BTW... a json file does not work for me. I need HTML. Thanks!

Bit of a niche question hope someone can help.

I’m running some website testing and have a script set up to open Firefox at regular intervals using Selenium in python, run tests and exit. Running it in a MacBook using Catalina and have the latest versions of Firefox. I tried a different MacBook as well.

Randomly, after running enough tests, it will fail to launch, throwing and error code “can’t quit and exited process”.

Once this happens, I can’t open Firefox at all, even manually. The icon just bounces and fails to launch. Oddly enough, I can’t launch Chrome either, even if I haven’t launched it since restart. Restarting my computer will fix the problem always.

I’ve tried running in headless mode to, no avail. Any ideas here?

On PC, I used to use the addon Session Manager : http://sessionmanager.mozdev.org/ It creates files that go by the extension ".session", and I have a folder with very many of those.

I don't know if up to date session managers work with the same file type, or whether it's a standard. I am looking for an addon that can at least read and open them. And preferably, that one can save and process sessions in this file type, to keep some continuity with my old profile. And still better, some cross browser session manager, so I can open those old files in, say, chrome too.

MSN is my homepage, across the header are all the pages available to me : Outlook, Facebook , etc. They all open on Chrome but for some reason all open except Outlook on Firefox. I just updated Firefox ( 11/9/19 ) so that's not the issue. Please advise as this is very inconvenient and makes using Firefox my second choice. Thanks.
