I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

This problem has been happening for a long time now. When I'm playing a playlist in YouTube, and YouTube automatically select the next song in the playlist, the song stops and I get the message "Playback Paused because your account is being used in another location". This problem ONLY happens in Firefox and with this playlist scenario. If I select the song manually in the playlist, the song will play just fine. I've used other browsers Chrome and Microsoft Edge and DO NOT have the problem in there so I know my account isn't being used in another location. I've tried using multiple PC's/Laptops and both Windows 7 and 10 and the problem always only happens when using Firefox. I checked the About section in Firefox and it's showing Firefox is Up To Date.

A few weeks ago I noticed that browsing in Firefox started being slower / sluggish.

It usually happens in YouTube or Twitch, but can also happen while scrolling with the mouse in wikipedia for example.

Some examples: -When having a Twitch stream open, the stream is running fine, but when clicking and moving the volume slider on the player, it does not move smoothly, and with some delay. -When doing a bit more heavy browsing, sometimes a tab might get "stuck", for example, the twitch stream might start to buffer for a few seconds. I notice the buffering is not related to any bandwidth related issue. -Firefox reacts slower (or with a small delay) while moving between tabs, clicking on links, etc. This usually happens only after a few hours after launching and browsing with Firefox.

Most happen after a while since I launch Firefox. And by a while I mean maybe 2-3 hours, and I don't have a ton of tabs open. It becomes slower much, much faster than it used to in the past.

Now, sometimes it can take Firefox up to 30 seconds to close completely, before I can launch it again.

I had the same Extensions installed before these issues started happening.

I tried uninstalling Firefox completely, then manually deleting the remaining profile folder, and do a fresh install of the latest Firefox version.

I checked the Windows Task Manager, and it shows (14) processes under Firefox. Is this normal? I tried unticking the "Use recommended performance settings" and restarting Firefox, but it still reached (14) processes after a couple of minutes.


I am not sure if it is related to Firefox itself. My computer is 5 years old but functioning properly...

I did not check if similar issues happen on a different browser. I am just so used to Firefox.

I had a few weird bug in Windows 10, but those existed for a good while now, and are not similar to the ones I experience while browsing with Firefox. I didn't notice anything similar while watching video files in a Media Player.

I am not sure if it can be hardware related. All seem to be working properly...


I want to figure out what is causing this. If you need any more information let me know.

A very serious bug in all Firefox browsers (it's been around for several years!). If you open multiple tabs (many tabs) in your browser, virtually all settings will not work, e.g. you won't open Options, Menus, various tasks, extensions, won't save your bookmarks, and many other problems. Although the browser opens a page and the Tab works! But everything else is NOT WORKING, even in Safe Mode or Troubleshooting Mode! I've reported this many times: No developer help!

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

Hi all

I would like some help if possible please. When I start Windows 10 on my laptop and I open Firefox I open two separate windows (personal and professional) and then I open a pre detirmined set of tabs in each window to start my day.

Is there a way I can press open Firefox and I can have 2 windows open with all my pre set tabs?

Is this possible? If not, how close can I come to this?

Thanks,

I can no longer view Instagram in my browser. For a week or so I've had trouble with Instagram. I can log in but all I get is the grey Instagram camera logo in the middle of my browser window. The app on my phone works fine. If I continue to try logging in on my computer to see if it works yet Instagram locks my account until I enter a password they send my email. My eyes aren't great and I need to view Instagram on my computer monitor. Please help. How do I fix this?

When I forward some links, rather than taking the recipient to the specific YouTube page, the link takes them to the YouTube home page. Other sites I can still forward correctly. I have researched this issue and except for a virus that affected Firefox a few years back, I have found nothing. I have run spyware, malware, and virusware with no change.

Is this a YouTube issue? Another form of Big Tech censorship? Anyone else out there having issues like this?

I finally put FireFox in the garbage can in my iMac (Big Sur 11.5.1) and flushed it and then downloaded a new copy. No difference. I deleted all my cookies per the Firefox suggested repair page. Why would a specific site generate these forward issues? Just for giggles, I tried a forward in Safari (which I never otherwise use) and the links work correctly.

I have been a Firefox supporter from the very beginning and hate to swap browsers. Thank you to all the wonderful code writers and tech support volunteers out there who make this effort possible.

Dear Mozilla volunteer! I recently experience regular crashes of FireFox version 94.02 under MacOS Monterey. I have removed some add-ons and also "probleemoplossingsmodus" did not help. Furthermore I uploaded various crashreports.

Where can I find help to solve this problem? Or is MacOS 12.01 the culprit and do I have to wait for an update from Apple?

Hello everyone

I migrate MacOS and i discover a bad UI behavior. The toolbars slide when I move the mouse to the top. Therefore, it becomes difficult to select the desired tab.

However, this is not the case in Safari. You can watch the videos.

Is there a setting that can prevent tabs from sliding?

Whenever I type "f" into the address bar in FireFox the following auto populates and suggests:

place:folder=BOOKMARKS_MENU&folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&folder=TOOLBAR&queryType=1&sort=12&maxResults=10&excludeQueries=1/

There are no folders named "BOOKMARKS_MENU" "UNFILED_BOOKMARKS" or "TOOLBAR" that can be found on the computer. Bookmarks Toolbar and Bookmarks Menu exist under Application Menu>Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks. No "Unfiled" exists in Manage Bookmarks, an "Other Bookmarks" does exist.

If I uncheck the option for FireFox to auto fill suggestions from bookmarks it stops. But, obviously, that is not a good solution.

No other letter generates this suggestion.

Typing "s" auto fills and suggests:

place:sort=8&maxResults=10/

Typing "t" auto fills and suggests:

place:type=6&sort=14&maxResults=10/

No other single letter auto fills and suggests a "place:" formatted suggestion. All others just suggest bookmarks or nothing.
