The answers I found on the internet re firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting do not apply to my version of Firefox . There is no ADVANCED under Options/General.

When I get firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting, the ALLOW often does not work.

How can I get rid of this feature?

I am having trouble logging into my bank's website from Firefox. It's worked fine for several years and I have no clue what triggered it all of a sudden. Furthermore, I can log in just fine from various other browsers.

I have Google around on the issue for awhile now, and have troubleshooted several different things based on what I've Googled, such as clearing all site cookies, data, cache, etc. Also I had a pop-up blocker add-on but I removed it and that didn't do anything. Lastly, I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it without ANY add-ons, but it still doesn't work.

Details on what happens: I go to the log in page, and I put in my user and password and click to log in, and it does nothing. It just basically refreshes the page, so the page comes back up with blank user and password fields.

Any help/ideas on the matter would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

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

Just purchased a Windows Surface Pro and setting it up to be the same as my Windows 10 Laptop. I have synced my Laptop which I would understand to mean that my bookmarks, ID/passwords etc are copied to a master in their cloud. Signing in to Firefox on Surface Pro and turning on sync does not give me the same setup as the PC.

1st question: How does Sync know that a device should be updated to match the cloud version, or the cloud version should be updated to match the device? If two devices are made different by daily actions, and both have sync turned on, does that make duplicates on both devices?

2nd question: I was expecting to see my pinned tabs, and my bookmark folders with contents be synced as well but not sure that is included.  ?

First, when i go to youtube, and sign in, it will show in some panels to sign in, even though im signed in in the top right of youtube, and youtube doesnt fully recognize that im signed in, and because of that, i cant add videos to playlists(because youtube thinks im not signed in). However other browsers dont have this problem and they work perfectly. I have tried with all the extras unninstalled (they were blocking ads and stuff) and it still happens. Second problem is not that impactful, but sometimes when i open a new tab my monitor turns black, with a big thrust of white in the center appearing and dispearing rapidly, and monitor only comes back from black when i click away, or by waiting a considerable amount of time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and it didnt fix any of the issues.

Hello, I use the add-on Simple Tab Groups and have been very happy with it so far! However, yesterday, I was moving some tabs from one group to another when I suddenly noticed that all my tab groups were empty! No idea when this happened as I had been working in one group for a while. The group I'd originally been working in was also empty after I'd closed it to check on others. Could this have happened due to the Firefox update on 25 November? AIs there any way I can recover my grouped tabs still? Thank you, Marieke
