I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable. Firefox works fine on my PC but I also have a new Mac and on that machine the scrollbar is totally unusable on all sites, even with a stylus. I saw a couple posts about creating some custom code for this but I'm not a developer. This can't be only my problem? How do I just make it wider?

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

This just started occurring on my PC when I use Firefox: why is the background of the address bar orange/yellow with diagonal stripes and there is a robot at the start of the web address? I'm concerned it may be a virus or the web browser is being remotely monitored.

Please refer to the attached image. Thank you,

Why is Firefox blocking Flickr and Tumblr without my permission.

I reinstalled Google Chrome as a proxy and then was able to login but a day later I was blocked again since Firefox is the default browser on my PC. Frustrating to say the least. Firefox does not have carte blanche authority to block sites without consulting these sites' customers first. The URL shield is grey and when I switch it off it has the line through it but still will not load.

Suggestions please?

for over a week I have not been able to access my Centurylink.net email.. when I have logged in and click the email button, the page brought up has a different URL than usual and page is blank. my email will work fine with the MS Edge browser. I have two computers, one using windows 7 and the other windows 10 and neither computer with the firefox browser will work for my email. everything else works fine in firefox. when I called centurylink last Monday they claim the problem is not on their end. I've cleared the cache and that didn't help. One computer is using Malwarebytes, but not the other. frustrated!

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz 4 Cores GPU - AMD Radeon R7 200 Series with 2gb.

Pls fix.

Why is Firefox now starting to remove bookmarks from my bookmarks menu. Several bookmarks have been repeatedly removed from my list. Just understand me, if you have started to sensor bookmarks , i will leave and use another browser. I am very disappointing with this browser. Open source and and a free community to share info. I guess you have also been taken over by big tech. Very sad, I guess it's Good Bye.

Hi,

After an update on Firefox 87.0 the pop-up exceptions defined are not working in private mode. A yellow bar appears that tells me that prevent the popups. If I choose to allow the popups with the button on the left of url then the url is added on exceptions/allowed window with a ^privateBrowsingId=1 marked in the url. However this is not persisted on a next run of firefox on private mode.

If someone have setup exceptions is there for a reason and should not be broken in private mode. I also cannot add ^privateBrowsingId=1 on my own in the url on the exceptions, as it appeared as %5 in exceptions and it does not work to allow pop-up.

Thanks

Firefox is in version 87 also fully updated in both OS in both machines. When I try to download anything whatever the size of the file is I see the little that shows downloading has started and then it vanishes and shows that the download has failed. I've already tried cleaning the cache, the history and the downloads history but nothing worked in any of my systems. Can anyone please help?
