Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.

I have Windows 8.1 Firefox 92.0 64-bit.

Now with this latest version of Firefox, when I click on a Folder on my Bookmarks Toolbar, the bookmarks are displayed in rows that seem to be double-spaced, so I only see about half as many bookmarks as I used to before I have to scroll down. Now I spend a lot more time scrolling up and down, and I hate it.

Is there a config setting that I can change or a value in about:config that I can set that will give me my old bookmark display setting back? Thanks for any help you give.

The setting Restore previous session, on settings, general, is marked. History is kept, and the previous tabs are on the history menu (no restore session option is available, however).

Things I tried: Started on safe mode. Deleted startup cache. Refreshed the profile. Turned off add-ons.

So far, nothing works. When I close the browser with tabs open and I open it again, it starts with my homepage only.

После обновления до версии 92.0 стал очень долго загружаться, прежде чем начинают запрашиваться и отображаться страницы проходит очень много времени, при попытке выбора закладки, курсор по ним скачет самопроизвольно, все таки продукт перед выкатом в продакшен нужно тестировать, если оперативно не выпустят обновление с исправлением этих детских косяков, придется переходить на Хром.

Somehow, I appear to have installed a plugin called the Lhite Network Extension. It creates hotlinks to advertising sites from plain text "keywords" in web pages. The originator of the plugin is something called Advertising (gear symbol) Support, Inc. and their web site is www.advertisingsupport.com. The removal instructions on that site are generic and do not provide the specific name of the plugin for Lhite Network Extension.

Neither Lhite Network Extension or anything from Advertsinig(gear)Support are enumerated in Firefox's lists of plugins and extensions, nor is anything shown in the Windows 8.1 add/remove program utility. Registry searches are negative as well. Running Firefox in "safe mode" prevents the add on from loading, but I still don't know which one it is.

Any suggestions about how to rid myself of this would be appreciated.

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I am trying to play a video (the website supports .webm, .ogv, mp4) but neither autoplay nor the start button seem to work. However, if I slide the control button to the right (+/- 40 sec) the video does play.

I have tried many of the solutions suggested in other threads (deactivating potential conflicting plugins, resetting Firefox, etc.) but none of them work.

What am I missing?

Firefox is not working correctly in windows 8.1 computers. It does not shut down completely and then does not open with this error message. Attaching.... David@XXXxxxx.com... The window displays the message firefox is already running but is not responding. To open a new window you must first close the existing firefox process or restart your system. This is very annoying it happens all the time.

I am running windows 8.1 on my lap top. I seem to have to alternate by changing my connection settings to open Firefox. After a session on the pc I can log back in with no problems. Shut down and go to log in again a few minutes later and I get the error message PROXEY SERVER IS REFUSING CONNECTION.

I have spoken to my provider and they tell e I do not have to have or should not need a proxry connection?. They also told me to try the following, which I have to admit is the only way I am now connecting to the internet.

Go to Tools-Advance-Connections. (configure how Firefox connects to the internet. SETTINGS.

In the window that opens I need to go to first option (configure proxies to connect to the internet) Here you are given three more options: 1.No Proxy 2.Autodetect Proxy 3Manual Proxy

If the box is checked for (2) above, I have to uncheck and check (3) above. Then restart the browser. It works fine....that is until I log out of Firefox. Go back in and I get the same error message, Proxy server refusing connection. This happens from time to time....not always. Some days it works fine on the last setting chosen. So I go through everything again as explained above and uncheck manual andthen I re check Autodetect....and it works. Next time it's the other way around, I just feel like a tennis ball bouncing from one option to the other and I should not have to be doing this. Never happened when I used XP or Vista?.

I have Mamaware cleaning installed and use Defender (which came with Windows 8). I have upgraded to 8.1 but the problem existed when I was running 8.
