Hi II am a relative computer novice and I am confused by the concept of deleting cache and cookies.

I am having trouble with Firefox browser on Vanguard website. I was told to clear my cache and/or cookies.

I don't currently store any Vanguard passwords on my computer.

However, I’m afraid that if I clear cache or clear cookies I will inadvertently remove the passwords for all my other websites.

Is there a way to clear cache and clear cookies without deleting passwords?

On certain pages, the rendering is completely off. For example, on Vimeo.com, all the text is gone (see attached pics). I tried Refresh Firefox, but the problem persists. I tried Troubleshoot Mode and that fixes the problem. But when I restart and disable all of my extensions, the problem continues.

This only happens on my work computer Firefox. The Firefox versions at home on multiple computers work just fine.

Any thoughts?

When I read content on a web page, I like to use the up and down arrows and PgUp PgDn to go through it. I hate having to reach over for the mouse and line everything up to go to the next screen. Since the last update, it seems I can't do that. When I hit the down arrow, or the PgDn key, it skips randomly down the page. This is especially true if I am reading an article with pictures in it. I think this might have something to do with my clicking yes to an inquiry from Firefox that just appeared on the page while I was browsing. It asked whether I wanted to be able to block text with keyboard commands. I'd like to change it back to whatever it was before, but can't figure out how to do that. Bill

The following I wrote to initially question why showing dom properties didn't work at all, but I only had tried it on an textarea example on developer.mozilla.org so far. Turns out, on right this support forum's textarea I'm right now writing in, it does work. Could I make it work on developer.mozilla.org, too, like it works here on support.mozilla.org? That would be useful to inspect the html and javascript examples on there.

Original planned question: I very recently updated to Firefox 91.3.0esr (64-Bit), and I restarted working with the developer tools.

As far as I can recall it was possible to see an overview of an html page's element's functions somewhere in the developer tools. I tried "Untersuchen (Q)" ("Examine" or is it "Inspect" in English) on the textarea (in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/HTMLTextAreaElement ). This openend the developer tools panel, the html was shown and the textarea-elemtent highlighted. There I right clicked and selected "Dom-Eigenschaften anzeigen" (View dom properties). The console opened, and showed: inspect($0, true) Restricted { }

(I want to access all the scroll properties of the textarea, and possible functions to scroll the textarea using javascript.)

Under the settings page of the developer tools -> standard developer tools -> I actived the checkbox "DOM", and restarted the browser (using the restart option under about:profiles).

For some reason I can't watch any of the licensed content on youtube I purchased, and I cannot watch anything on netflix. Both problems appeared at the same time so I thought they might be related. I have disabled hardware acceleration with no effect. I have cleared history and deleted cookies. I have also disabled my vpn, but none of it works.

Anyone else had this problem? Netflix says "browser not supported" and youtube says "problems showing licensed content."

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.

I am unable to use the' how to enable cookies on Firefox, . i have tried to find the tools on firefix without success. When I click onthe bar on the top right hand side of the screen it opens but there is no 'OPTIONS' section shown.

Another problem is when I try  to add grammartically to  my firfefox browser it  does not add it.
I have been using an earlier version of Firefox without having any of these problems. When I try to sign into my virgin media  which I keep in my bookmarks it says that  cookies are not enabled in my browser. Something is rather strange with this browser and I await your comments.

I am unable to log onto investor.vanguard.com using Firefox. It has worked fine until last week. I confirmed the username/password are correct (they work fine on my phone app and using the Microsoft browser). I contacted Vanguard and they said they have not had any reported issues on the website.

When I click on the LOGON icon, a blue halo appears around the icon, but I cannot complete the logon. All other icons on the home page work properly on Firefox, but the LOGON does not. Deleting cookies did not help.

Are other Firefox users experiencing this on Vanguard, and if so, is there a fix?

Like the title states, whether it be the search bar, url bar or any other text field the first key stroke of input is not registered and doesn't display. Once I've begun to type the missed stroke happens and then all is fine until I pause typing for around 30 seconds then the missed stroke happens again, otherwise I can continually type with no issues. This began a couple months ago and I assumed it was the old keyboard I was using so I bought a new one and the problem still persists. This issue is exclusive to Firefox and no other program or browsers on Windows 10. Firefox is fully updated, Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) at the time of writing this. I have "refreshed" Firefox and removed all add-ons etc. and the problem still exists. Thanks.
