Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

I have used sync for long on several devices and different operating systems (Win 7, Win 10, IOS) in parallel. Most interesting and useful is for me synchronisation of the toolbars with Bookmarks. It worked fine up to today. Today I opened Firefox and found my bookmarks as they were about two years ago. Oops... so I tried to synchronize but failed. No changes were applied to my bookmarks. I assume, my bookmarks are also being stored on several other devices I used for Firefox. However the newest sinchronization on the mozilla server does not contain the accurate valuable data. How can I manage to save sync data from a destinct device to the sync server and determine that as the current data set to be valid for synchronization with all my other devices? In other words: set the direction for synchronization. I did not find this option on my current (82.0.3 (64-Bit)) installation. Could anybody help me? Thanks Juergen

I am running Firefox 83.0 under Windows 7 Ultimate: I am a voracious reader of amateur writing and have accounts on several websites. I use Reader View in Firefox due to my less than optimal eye sight. It works perfectly on Literotica.com and Inkitt.com, but on Wattpad .com, Reader View has a difficult time capturing the full text of a page. It will usually capture only blocks of the text and it is extremely difficult to make it capture a desired block of text. Why is this and can I do anything about it? PerryNormal perrynormal@att.net

https://color.firefox.com/

How can I get a Theme or Create my Theme in Menu - Extras? It is difficult to move on with this.

I wish a Theme with the Text in the URL addresses with yellow colour and a dark colour background on the Top where I write the URL addresses.

Something is wrong when I try to follow these steps: > You can activate one of these built-in themes by following these steps:

   Click the menu button, click Addons-icon Extras and select Themes.
   Click Activate next to the desired theme.

It's being difficult to activate the theme I choose.

I do not know what json files are. I have only seen them in the profile. However, whatever their purpose, firefox is no longer processing json files. Instead, it wants to download json.txt when I make some selections.

Example: on Youtube when signed into my account, I select "notification" and instead of the menu opening, the download box appears wanting to download json.txt. This has happened in numerous places - not only youtube, so it looks like a Firefox problem.

Firefox used to process json files and now wants to download them. I tried to configure json in options, and when I select "other" Firefox shows up as a choice it it not possible to select it. I select it, but it does not change the ONLY options for json files which are "always ask" or "save".

This is clearly not something I can fix, not something I caused. I need the features that are not functional, and apparently they have become dysfunctional because they apparently access json files but no longer process them as intended.

Would appreciate knowing what the problem is, if there is an explanation. Is there a fix? Do I need to configure something? Thanks. Mary

I use a 55 inch TV as my computer monitor with Windows7 OS. All of a sudden this week the animations are on every site... Netflix just became unbearable to watch. I have already gone though the steps to turn off all animations in Firefox. I performed these steps...

'''in about:config - type : toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - set it to : false - type : toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll - set it to : false'''

This did NOTHING to turn off the nauseating animations. Every time I scroll a web page I feel motion sickness. Every movie I watch now looks like garbage.

I ALSO have turned off ALL animations in Windows7... so this is really upsetting. Movies I have downloaded seem to play fine in VLC player, but if I use my browser to watch a video, it is now unbearable because of these garbage animations wreaking havoc on my screen.

Guten Abend, ich habe ein Problem beim FireFox-Browser auf einem Amazon Tablett. Es wäre schön, wenn Sie mir Hinweise zur Fehlerbeseitigung geben könnten. Danke. Meine Frau und ich nutzen seit ca. 2 Jahren das oben genannte Tablett 'fire HD 10' von Amazon. Auf dem Tablett haben wir die FireFox App installiert. Sie funktionierte bis gestern ohne Probleme. Als wir das Tablet heute Abend wieder mit FireFox benutzen wollten bekamen wir die Absturz-Anzeige (wie im Bild). Als Erste Massnahme habe ich den Cash der FireFox App gelöscht. Dann das Tablett nach aktueller Software suchen lassen und die Software des Amazone-Tablett anschlissend aktualisiert. Der Fehler blieb. Abschließend habe ich dann noch die FireFox App deinstalliert sowie aktuell aus dem PlayStore von Google runter geladen und installiert. Allerdings bleibt der Fehler weiterhin bestehen.

=========================now in english===========================

Good evening, I have a problem with the FireFox browser on an Amazon tablet. It would be nice if you could give me some troubleshooting tips. Thank you. My wife and I have been using the above mentioned tablet fire HD 10 from Amazon for about 2 years. We installed the FireFox app on the tablet. It worked without any problems until yesterday. When we wanted to use the tablet with FireFox again this evening, we got the crash display (as in the picture). As a first measure, I deleted the FireFox app's cash. Then let the tablet search for the latest software and then update the software of the Amazone tablet. The mistake remained. Finally, I uninstalled the FireFox app and downloaded it from the Google PlayStore and installed it. However, the error persists.

Recently a Website "Fastly" tries to connect to its own IP addresses. Even if nothing has been done to call it,

My research shows that Fastly now owns the IP addresses formerly used by the known spyware ad supploer Cambridge Entreprenurial 199.232.0.0 thru 199.232.255.255. I see these connection attempts because my FireWall specifically blocks the address used by Cambridge Entrepren... So the FW gives me a popup. (which I can bypass temporarily)

But I can't find a way to stop it or what is causing Fastly to do anything. It just seems to call home when it feels like. The only consistency is only partial at best. That is for Amazon.com. In that case sometimes connecting to Amazon.com works fine. But much or most of the times I do not get an even cl;ose properly formatted Amazon page. And if I do get an OK Amazon home page, odds are high the next tab-page I open will be messed up, or not have any formatting or no graphics at all.

Any ideas? And can we get rid of Fastly or do we just have to block sites that allow Fastly to operate?

ok I updated my FF browser to ver 83 on my win 7 machine

  • also did this on another PC that has win 10 PC

both are set to use google ONLY as ALL other search engines have been removed.

Since updating to the last version 83 it shows only google - even google as the homepage.

but every search starts and bing or occasionally yahoo search results are shown.

I HATE bing it is a virus and every few years it sneaks in on an update.

bing is hidden, but shows up after updates are installed.

the ONLY update I have done is FF as it has that continuous nag popping up to tel you its out of date.

so without resetting FF [which I found to not do anything useful] it removed my stuff, but still messed up.

Can I uninstall this latest version and install ver 82 to remove bing.
    • the FF Nag will come back telling me its unsafe/out of date but if google works without bing it would be great :)

Hello,

Firefox is blocking some website because it says it's not secure (see picture). I don't give a .... So I want to access the website anyways. However, there is NO way to do that, NONE. I've searched everywhere. So I can only rely on you guys. How can I force the connection or bypass the F security, or get rid of it, or something... anything.

Here is a historic of my tests : My issue is simple. 2 days ago I could surf on some website completely fine. Then all of a sudden half my website get SO CALLED "The connection has timed out".

- Test server : So I go on the usual website-server-is-down to test if the server is down. The website itself is perfectly fine according to 5 testing website. - Test server 2 : Then I go through a "browser inside browser" website to test it again (dunno how it's called). I can access the main page then navigate fine on all test-browser. The website is therefore fine. - "Not secure" : Despite the viciously misleading message saying "connection timed out" that makes you believe the website is down and gone, it is actually fine, as proven above. It's just for some god unknown reason Firefox decided to block it, without telling you it's actually blocking it (nice move!). - No button : I searched but could not find a way to either force the connection or create security exception. I tried disabling all security in "privacy" tab in the option, no deal. - Certificate : I also went to try and add the website as an exception in the certificate list, but Firefox pretends it cannot connect to the website, therefore you cannot add the certificate. - Security.enterprise : I have removed the access from Avast to Firefox allowing me to unlock security.enterprise_roots.enabled. Once I had it unlocked, I tried either True or False, but no deal (including reboots comp & browser) - I spent 4 hours searching solutions on the web, but couldn't fin any. Is Firefox actively preventing me for surfing the web as I like... ?

In the end, I still cannot access this website. And I wanna say to Mozilla : It's my own liberty if I want to go and shoot myself in the foot by visiting a so-called "unsecured website". I should be able to do so if I want to...

Anyway, if any gosu out there has the skill, please help ? ^^; Thanks

Windows 7.

Firefox and only he is seen in the active use of the lsass process. If you open an empty firefox browser with no tabs or only settings tabs, then the lsass process does not consume anything. However, if you open any tab with the Internet, the lsass process begins to consume from 1 to 6 percent of the processor, for a while. On some pages there is more, on others less, it happens that it constantly consumes 4+, sometimes it sags a little to 1-2. However, any tab opening and internet manipulation leads to this result - lsass consumes CPU resources. Does not depend on the presence of add-ons, I put the regular and portable versions 81 82 83.

This behavior of the lsass process does not occur in any other browser that I have been able to install. Be it chrome, opera, avant, waterfox tor browser, vivaldi, and others. On another computer completely zero, this process is also used, although a little faster, but also every time the page is opened, there is a load on the processor from lsass.
