Hello,

Ever since the last upgrade was installed I have seen that the browser gets slower and slower but even on the first tab opened the performance is terrible. The symptoms are that pages load slowly, typing doesn't get displayed in the order typed, using aps like Ancestry in the photo section; using the select a face from a picture is very slow and jerky.

I would gladly give up what 'improvements' 92 provided just to get back to a version that works better.

I have disabled unused features, defragged the HD, and followed what was provided about slow FF and nothing has helped.

As a test I tried another browser on the same site and it was lightening fast. I prefer FF so that is not an option.

Any ideas on what I can do to get FF to operate better????

Thanks on advance for your help!!

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

A few weeks ago the product reviews at Costco.com disappeared. I spoke with Costco today and they said they could see them and that I should switch to Google Chrome for better results. I tried turning off the privacy, no trackers on their site but it didn't help. Logging in or not didn't make any difference. AdGuard 7.6.1 is disabled on Costco's site. The 5 star rating system woks fine with Amizon and other sites. I am also using Norton 360 if that makes a difference. Any solutions?

When I open a jpg image in a new tab and try to use the Zoom Controls on the custom toolbar: On one of my desktop PCs the Zoom Control will function to enlarge the image if I click the + button and restore it to its original size if I click 100%. On my other desktop PC the Zoom Control functions properly on text such as this, etc., but does not enlarge jpg images. Both PCs are running the most current version of Windows, both are running the most current version of Firefox Nightly. Displays and display cards are different. Not sure if this is a bug report, or I missed a settings adjustment. Michael

Two Questions:

I have been using BookBrush.com on Firefox for a couple of years now, but for the past two days, when I try to open it, either by entering the URL directly or clicking on a bookmark, it does nothing. It won't open at all. I can open it in a different browser, though. Can you tell me what's going on with BookBrush on your browser?

Also, when I try to access the website LuanaEhrlich.com, it doesn't load with all the images. It loads perfectly on another browser. Can you tell me what the issue is?

Thanks so much!

I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?

Clicking a hyperlink in an Excel 365 worksheet will not open the URL in Firefox.

Using Excel 365, the worksheets contain tables of short interest history collected from a URL that varies only in the portion that is the companies symbol ( i.e. https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/akts/short-interest , where "akts" is the company symbol ). On the worksheet for each company this URL, with the correct symbol for the company has been included in a cell using the hyperlink feature.

In the past, clicking any of the hyperlinks immediately opened my default browser, which is the current version of Firefox, to the web page for the company identified by the symbol in the URL.

That changed after a version update of Firefox a number of months ago. Clicking the hyperlink will most times "freeze" Excel, and if I click anywhere in or on Excel a "not responding" message is thrown, and Excel must be manually closed resulting in a recover event for all workbooks that were open. Sometimes, not always, waiting several minutes, Firefox will open the URL. Not always. I've found that if that occurs, clicking on the same URL hyperlink that finally opened (after having closed it in Firefox) will crash Excel.

The attached image is a view of the "tip" still visible on a black screen after Excel has crashed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt
