In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel

Hi, I use outlook email, and they changed me over to beta. Ever since, when I'm trying to scroll down and check my email list, the screen keeps bouncing up to the top emails. It's impossible to scroll down the lower ones. (They took away the option to switch out of beta.) Thanks!

I have reinstalled, cleaned, scanned, etc to no avail. the only thing that is currentlyl working is using Avast vpn browsing from a different country than my own. Please help, thanks

I had very important notes for work and study in the description section of my bookmarks - as many others did as well, I'm sure - however, as of a recent Firefox update, I've lost the description section and all of my work (quotes from lengthy sources related to health matters, extremely important research for work-related projects, and personal notes on books, etc.). How does Firefox intend to compensate for these losses?

On my laptop, when scrolling fast through a question I asked on mozilla support community website (the question is mentioned in the screenshot below), a very small portion in the right side suddenly turned to red... I don't know what portion it was exactly, but I definitely saw something in red there.. & the thing is, when i scroll slowly, there's nothing in red colour there.. so a portion suddenly turned to red when only scrolled fast. It could only be a graphics glitch or something wrong with the website right? and nothing else right?

PS (on 10/25/2018): I posted this question by mistake twice and the other question has been answered. To stop autoplay the setting "media.autoplay.default" has to be changed to 1.

I been noticing lately alot of posting of FF excessive RAM usage or Taxing on the system Resources. My best guess here is that FF during the Auto updates has become corrupted from either the update or some other software causing the update error thus leading to excessive RAM usage causing system freezing or unresponsive Browser or making the computer in General slow and unresponsive.

Below is what one should really do in order to eliminate if the Browser is the culprit to the problem. 1. Download the latest version of FF based on your O/S version 32bit to 32bit Browser or 64bit O/S to 64bit Browser https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ 2. Backup your BookMark if you have one created or any CSS style you added as well 3. Write down any Addons/Extensions so you can find and download them later 4. Uninstall all FF installs and Deleted the Mozilla folder 5. Restart 6. Reinstall the new FF and then update with the Addons/Extensions 7. Restore your BookMark back. 8. Run FF to see if the problem returns or not

Now if you do all this and still have problems then it's not a FF issue but something related to either adblockers, A/V being to aggressive or Malware/Virus is present and blocking any Browser from working correctly. And this point would require a Computer shop to resolve the problem.

I'm unable to download any file from google drive

1) https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&confirm=bnxT&id=1axnvq3lqCtw7zwoajbqefBC_QsZ2-RvO (Don't think that this file is big, that's why it isn't working, it is same with all files)

When i click this "Download Anyway" button, firefox just refreshes the tab and nothing happening. I'm using latest firefox version.(Even tested beta version)

I've tried other browsers like chrome, Edge, they are downloading the file perfectly when i click the button.

2) Another problem while downloading from google drive account

While right clicking a file and click "Download" Button, The file won't download. It is redirecting to this page showing "The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-10-34-docs.googleusercontent.com.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

You may think that I've disabled my cookies. But no, I didn't.

Also working fine with Chrome.

I'm using addons : Adguard, Browsec VPN, I've uninstalled them both and tried. Still no hope.


I even cleared my whole data and tried, no hope Disabled Tracking protection, no hope Tried in private window, no hope

I've been facing the second problem from over 6 months. So i use "Get sharable link" option in drive to download files.

It was working fine 2 months before. But now, that's also not working.


Please help me

Loading http://localhost or https://localhost is slow as hell. There is a 60sec delay on initial load. This happens with Firefox (63) and Firefox Dev Ed (63). I believe it something to do with advanced IP4 IP6 settings but can't find any useful info on this site about this. This makes FF bloody useless for in a dev environment. How do I fix? Which advanced setting fixes this?
