It's a blank "Coming Soon" page with no information.

I'm experiencing usability problems with the new theme and I'd like to share what I'm experiencing.

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.

Lately: these issues have popped up. I have all the FF updates. 1. I keep getting Crash Reports (never had thee before) 2. My passwords are not saved and I have to continually re-enter, esp. on Twitter and IG 3. When I close my computer to Sleep, Windows keeps asking me to Update and Restart.

   When I do, it goes through the process and then says Windows could not Update and 
    is undoing the changes. Is it a conflict with FF?
    I have the Avast Secure Browser and their Support said I can uninstall it and it would
    not take away anything on my FF browser. True?

Thanks for any and all your help.

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

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?

I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.

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

There is a website that I use for work a lot and I have it on my bookmarks for easy access. The url for this website is https://_________________.com/html5 When I start typing the first 3 letters after the "https://" part, the address bar auto fills but it only does so up to ".com" and omits the "/html5" part so the website does not load correctly if I hit enter. I then have to use more keystrokes to get the complete url which is super annoying since I have to use this website multiple times every day. Is there a way to force firefox to auto fill the whole url without omitting the last part ?

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

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.

Last week (14 April 2021) I was able to watch videos on netflix and hulu. This week (21 April 2021), however, a yellow bar appears across the top of the page, saying, on the left-hand side: "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed Learn more...", and, on the right-hand side, "[Reload page] [Submit a crash report]". Repeated submissions of crash reports, as well as repeated reloading of the page, results in exactly the same: same yellow bar, same inability to watch videos. Likewise, clicking on "Learn more" merely results in the widevine.com page, which states that the company does not service end-users. In addition, last week (14 April 2021), I purchased a video on youtube, and watched part of it. This week (21 April 2021), wanting to watch the rest of the video, all I encounter is: "Your browser can't play this video. Learn more." Clicking on "Learn more" yields "Your browser is up to date. You can use YouTube's latest features!" Repeat ad nauseam. So, it seems that, even though my browser is up-to-date, I am still unable to watch videos on either youtube, hulu, or netflix.

I'm seeing some weird behavior in FF.

I have an HTML page that allows the user to click on a link to trigger a file upload to a remote server. The file being uploaded is usually > 2GB and takes a LONG time to upload (sometimes > 1.5hrs due to slow link to remote server).

What we see is the remote server ends up with multiple corrupted versions of the same file.

Could it be that FF is silently timing out waiting for a HTTP response and then retrying to upload the file? I can't think of any other explanation for the multiple files, since the user only clicks once on the hyperlink.

Thank you, Dan
