New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

Привет! Раньше в Firefox был простой редактор JavaScripts, который запускался по нажатию Shift+F4. Сейчас его нет, возможно ли как-то вернуть?

В "Инструментах веб-разработчика" присутствовал простой редактор JavaScript, а теперь его нет.

Google Maps not able to Access Location

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks! (Working on Firefox 75. with a MAC)

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

Firefox just upgraded to 80.0.1 . . . on Mac OS High Sierra . . .

  1. 1 Open new browser window
  2. 2 Go to : http://www.Google.com/maps/
  3. 3 paste or key an address into the "Where?" field, and
  4. 4 BOOM Firefox immediately closes the Google window.

On a Macbook Pro, running Mac OS High Sierra, 10.13.6 FireFox version 75.0 works perfectly, and Google Maps works perfectly.

(Except for the annoying notices to upgrade, which is what was done, finally got tired of getting the upgrade notice so she upgraded and BOOM Firefox doesn't work on Google Maps. So now she's using Safari for Google Maps)

-(

Tip : If the upgrade doesn't work, then don't send the upgrade notices!

Firefox Monitor has a limit on the number of monitored email addresses (15). However, I use the "+" symbol to register on sites - just to determine which site caused the leak. That is, email@mail.com and email+forum@mail.com are the same email address. I have hundreds of such modified addresses. However, the Firefox Monitor allows you to track only 15 of them.

Is it possible to remove the limit on the number of addresses served, or make the FM perceive email@mail.com and email+forum@mail.com (etc.) as one address?

Hi, I notice that mozilla/firefox don't seem to show types of addons into groups, especially their officially-recommended-addons https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?recommended=true&type=extension - into different categories, as to what each add-on does, i.e. which productivity activities they might fall under for what they do. what good is 4 or more pages of add-ons in a list? I would want them in groups that fall under categories as a Type/dropdown. For example add that is great for taking notes, another for tracking protection, another for music, etc, etc. The listing page is simply a four page list with no divisions.

Could there be an additional Filter on the left side of the page that drops down showing all the different types of OFFICIALLY RECOMMENDED-addons depending on their function/purpose, please. not just by their names? I hope I can get my point across well enough, being a visual type, I might be unable to place it into the correct framework in a written way. My apologies in that case. Thank you and best regards!

Firefox 75.03b

Has anybody noticed some odd behavior with Firefox lately?

I have numerous pages I have frequented in the past that now either don't load at all, or are very slow/stubborn to load, or once they do load, don't work correctly. Most of these page are fine in Chrome.

I also have pages that were the current page before Firefox was relunched, that don't load at all, but they have addresses in the navigation bar. If I relaunch the browser again, sometimes the page comes back. However, If I try to refresh the page before relaunching the browser, the address disappears, the page cannot be recovered, and is not listed in history.

Also, I have random addons that have been reset to default at different times. I thought it was my imagination at first. That I must have forgotten to customize them, but it keeps happening, so far to at least 6 different addons. The time period is hard to gauge because I don't notice until I see things no working right.

Hello,

Does Firefox support Office 365 online? I opened a Word document on Dropbox website and I got a message that office is not supported in this web browser. My computer has Windows 10 OS and I used Mozilla Firefox Developer as well as Mozilla Firefox. A colleague of mine has the same issue while using macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and Mozilla Firefox.

BTW I have Dark Reader plug-in enabled in my browser, that's why the picture is in reversed colours. It doesn't affect the problem described.

Thanks.

So I have been Firefox Developer Edition on three different devices for the past year and just a few days ago on one of my devices, Firefox would not keep my theme settings, extensions, or accept my master password, so I closed Firefox. But that didn't help and since i needed to reboot my system anyway, I did a reboot and when I logged back on and tried to open Firefox it gave me an XUL Runner error saying that 75.0 is not compatible with min version >=74.0. So I uninstalled FDE and then re-downloaded it, reinstalled 75.0 since I do believe that the update to 75.0 had hung up on this particular device a week before. So then a day later my other two devices started having issues, so I tried to sign into another Firefox account, that didn't work so I did a reinstall and it seemed fine for a minute until I realized all my passwords/logins/history were gone, so I tried to sync again and then it gave me the message to set my master password, so I tried and kept getting the 'Cannot change master password' error. I have reinstalled twice and create a new Firefox account, tried to sign into an older one. I know someone will say just use the regular Firefox, but I use the FDE because my other Firefox browser is set with a work account that I keep to backup user data at work and I cannot use for my personal device. Any ideas?
