I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

My system: AMD A9-9425 RadeonR5,5 Compute Cores 2C+3G 3,10GHz

                   8GB of ram 7.45 usable
                   WIN 10 Home Ver. 1909         {64 bit}

When I try to login to my Edward Jones account on my PC, I enter my ID and Password and there's a popup that they need to text me a security code. When I click on "text me", I receive an error message and nothing happens. I can access my account via Internet Explorer (which doesn't ask for a security code). I can access my account on my iphone. I called Edward Jones and they said it was a Firefox issue. I have Windows 10. Anyone know how to fix this issue? I'm pretty tech-challenged, so if you have suggestions, I hope I understand!! :) Thanks!!

When i try to look at an image on firefox in it's own tab so i can see it bigger, it instead opts to download it instead of just showing it in the tab itself. This is annoying as I don't want to have to make a whole folder just for images that i've seen once and then never look at again. is there an option i might have chosen at some point that enables this? i'm not too sure. please help if someone is able to.

I use Xubuntu OS and installed Firefox from there many 4 months ago on this my new laptop, from Ubuntu repos. I now do not know what version it was.

About a month ago I noticed that every time I closed down the computer I saw a flashing image of what appeared to be a message from Firefox. It disappeared before I could read what it was about.

I uninstalled Firefox totally yesterday by purging the system, deleting the folders/files in /etc and /usr relating to it. I downloaded it from repos and installed it again However, the flashing image still appears every time I close down.

I decided to video the close down to pause it and see what this message was about. It was as I said in the subject above. I found two crash reports in about:crashes and have submitted them.

Please tell me how to stop this repeating message.

Also, when uninstalling Firefox I saved the logins and passwords but was unable to use the resulting csv to recover them. Is there a better way than manually?

Hi

I have read all the solutions suggested for helping solve problem with spelling checker tried a fix but to no help.

Here is the problem, when i right click the mouse to get access to language for spell checking, I do not get the alternatives that include selection of language. This happens in the text area but not in the address area where I can see the option of selecting the language and hence even being able to spell check.

I have tried selecting the language in Outlook, gmail, creating a post in LinkedIn and elsewhere and all I get is nothing.

Incidentally, writing here was ok without any issues.

So, friends out there, please help me solve this one

kind regards

Edward

Ok. So Im on Arch Linux. Tried downgrading 78, works correctly. I have firefox dev edition ver 80 and the left channel is about 64x quiter than right. Does any one have similar problem or knows how to fix it? Firefox problem - confirmed (ALSA, pulse with or without jack aren't the problem there) It's not a preference, setting, addon - confirmed. (started browser with brand new browser profile) Isn't update problem - disconfirmed (It did break after update. Downgrading and faking profile(browser version) worked fine.)

any help, or even a way to find what and where it is caused would be helpful. I did look into a shit ton of setting and debug menus, to find that everything is in norm.

(pls ignore these extensions, i will do cleanup soon and they aren't a problem here anyways)

Hello,

Since a while i noticed that the aspect ratio of firefox is off. There is a little line on the bottom and left side of the window. It's only a few pixels wide, but enough for my mouse to not recognize it as a window. It's slowly been driving me mad, since i can't click on the far left side of the screen and my cursor stays there when i watch a video fullscreen.

Anyone have any solutions for this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi! Since a few months I can't open the opening folder after downloading a file.

Normally, I download a file, then click on the button "open containing folder" on the right of the download file. the default file manager opens up then at the level just above the file downloaded. But, a few months ago, this stopped working: Clicking on "open containing folder" launches the file manager but directly at the level of the file: And this makes the file manager launches the file by the way with the default program.

Settings: Arch Linux, Firefox 79

Hi there,

I recently upgraded to a MacBook Pro 16, and installed the Firefox browser as usual. Every time I launch Firefox now, I must "Sign in to sync," and input my Firefox Account password (not my Master Password) in order to access my homepage, saved logins, etc. This was not the case with my older MacBook Pro, where I was automatically signed in on launching the browser.

What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

How can I do a search on the Mozilla and Firefox web sites (in help or community) using AND search terms instead of the default OR searches.

Specifically, I am trying to search for "PDF" AND "Search" -- for problems with finding things in PDF files. But the search, as performed, finds hundreds of pages with "PDF" OR "Search", so mostly irrelevant.

salve, Sono uno sviluppatore web. Ho notato che dopo gli ultimi aggiornamenti Firefox si è allineato alla linea di Chrome e Opera, creando un problema non da poco. Il problema è che non rispetta le impostazioni header per NON memorizzare la pagina in cache. Più in particolare le pagine da me create impostano il Cache-Control a "private,no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate,max-age=0" ed in più imposto l'header PHP (tramite .htaccess) per non memorizzare i file tipo php, js,css,html. Aggiornando la pagina tramite l'apposito comando "Ricarica" il browser mantiene in memoria i file obsoleti (js e css) non aggiornando la cache come richiesto. L'unico modo per aggiornare i file è "eliminare la cronologia del browser". La stessa cosa accade ricaricando gli iframe.

In prevalenza facciamo delle applicazioni WEB per cui è necessario che i file siano sempre aggiornati in base alle ultime modifiche, da cui la necessità di NON memorizzare in cache. Questa pecca ci ha spinto a SCONSIGLIARE ai nostri Clienti l'utilizzo di Chrome e Opera in favore di Firefox. Spero prendiate in esame il problema. Attendo un Vostro riscontro.
