Something broke in my browser. For last day or two whenever I try to open an image to see it in full details etc, it instead opens new tab. Then I realized that description of this basic option changed to what it does now, as well, so I assume this is some sort of new feature.

How do I revert it? Do I need some sort of plugin? If yes, is there plugin that outright replaces this new, worse functionality with old, better one? If not, can someone message me when such plugin exists?

Hi. Finally got round to asking this question.

How can I be certain the Pop-up for my Primary Password is from Firefox and NOT a 'fake', pop-up (or some such) displayed by a malicious web-site?

TIA Mike

Hi, I accidentally DLed FF88 without checking the details w/r/t functionality.

Several of the changes severely compromise my ability to use FF for my job.

Examples are the 'view image' which is now gone from right-click and replaced with 'open image in new tab' --this disrupts my work flow. And 'save image to pocket' etc is not useful for me, but happens to be right where I normally click on another function.

Is there a relatively seamless way to undo the FF88 'upgrade' ? TIA

My website runs NGINX with PageSpeed module. It's fronted by a CDN. When I visit the homepage on Edge and Chrome, most of the images are webp and yet on Firefox they are jpg.

My Firefox version is 88.0 64 bit for Windows 10.

Does anyone know why this is happening as visitors to my site in Firefox are getting a slower response

Thanks

Addon for Automated Screenshots every X minutes

Hi,

I was looking at basically entire collection of addons with different keywords and it seems like I'm still overlooking something. Everything I found, related to taking the screenshots, is based on manual click within an addon but this is NOT what I'm looking for.

Instead, what I would like to do is to define exact URL link and quantity of minutes. Then, assuming that Firefox is running, the addon I'm asking for would automatically take a screenshot every defined quantity of minutes on that defined URL webpage and save it on hard drive on exact defined folder.

The webpage I'm (mostly) interested for contains dynamic numerical values that are in average changing approximately four times per second. I don't need every second, not even every minute. I would take automated screenshots around 96 times per day which is one screenshot every 15 minutes. But quantity of minutes could be changed by me.

Additional problem is that wanted view of the webpage is where scrolling element is approximately on the middle of webpage content. Having said that, I definitely don't want that screenshots are taken from the top because in this case, on screenshot would be missing important graphical data. Solution could be that, instead of image based screenshot, entire webpage is copied into a PDF screenshot every X minutes and file saved. That would assure me that needed content is saved.

The reason why I'm looking for such tool is because I would like to compare the graphical non-stop 24 hours per day changing numbers. Compare them between two different moments in the past. The website is not saving past values so screenshots are the only solution.

I have already seen several different addons related to screenshots but neither of them is offering everything I mentioned:

- automated taking and saving (downloading) with or without my presence in a form of (usually) browsing other websites - ability to define URL so screenshots are taken automatically from this URL - ability to define frequency (one screenshot per every X defined minutes) - automated saving on hard drive

Could anyone please tell me what should I use for that?

Thank you in advance.

During searches, opening email or anything else I get these parts of pages that are blacked out. Some times they will go ways when scrolling but mostly I have to highlight a sentence, click and goes away.

I do not know how else to describe it.

I like the new features and way that Firefox works and have always enjoyed the security an anonymity.

Does not happen with other browsers. Computer is up to date and runs great, not that that should matter.

Firefox version. 88.0, Windows 10 up to date.

images attached.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

The theme I am using has never made my new tab screen show up like it's in dark mode. The new tab used to show up like it was in light mode and I don't know how to get it back. The theme I am using has not updated so I don't think it is that. I have also tried switching to some other themes and it hasn't changed it to the white new tab screen. It's hard for me to read, please help. Thank you

Unable to sign in to my email account for Spectrum (Charter.net) using Firefox. Other browsers work. I called tech support at Spectrum and they told me this is a known problem with firefox that they get regular calls about. They are advising customers to use a different brower and do not know what is causing the problem or if it will get fixed. Clearing the startup cache for Firefox DOES NOT fix the problem for me. Running the current version of Windows 10 64 bit pro version on a 4 month old HP Pavilion laptop. Firefox has adblock installed.

Since Charter is aware of the problem and is solving it by telling people not to use Firefox, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this and has a solution. I cleared the startup cache several times and that didn't change anything.

Hi there! Some background info: I have a desktop PC. I just got the newest firefox update. ...Thanks; I hate it. And they've altered the way the bookmarks look. So now the bookmarks drop-down menu is so long that I have to scroll down to see everything on it, (I didn't have to before). And what's worse is that sometimes one moment it will be over the Windows taskbar that's at the bottom of my screen and suddenly it will disappear UNDER the taskbar where I can't see everything and I struggle to access anything with my mouse. It's SO aggravating. How do I fix this??

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!
