When I type facebook.com into my address bar I keep getting sent to m.facebook.com/?refsrc...etc.,etc. Then when I log in from that address I'm at m.facebook.com/?_rdr, which is apparently what people with cell phones or iPads see. Why is this? What should I do? Thanks

I am the administrator for a Weebly website. Yesterday, when I try to log into this website on Firefox, I got the error message "wrong user name or password." I have changed nothing. I reset my password using Weebly reset, and received the same message. Then I tried to access my website on Opera, and got in with no problem.

Any suggestions on how to fix will be most welcome. Caveat: I am NOT very computer literate, sorry!

Thank you!

Hello All. Ok. I got one for you. I just hooked up new (stand alone) monitor to my laptop.

It's an Acer SB220Q. Connected fine. But everything is very pixelated and flickers, but only on Firefox and only on the monitor. No issues on my laptop. Google Chrome and Explorer Edge both work fine on the Monitor.

As a mini-geek - started out as computer science major - I've checked all the drivers, graphics, and even uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Nothing changed.

What gives?

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

I'd like to be able to change my keyboard shortcuts for Firefox, but I don't see how to do that. Mouse buttons don't work at all, and ctrl-shift-tab / ctrl-tap don't do what I want them to.

I see no way to customize shortcuts, they seem baked into the source code.

I had to get a new hard drive on my laptop, so I'm sure you can imagine how stressed I already am.

Plus I'm in Spain, and the computer guy who fitted the new hard drive has set my computer language to Spanish, which so far I'm unable to change!

Anyway... I'm hoping someone can help me reinstall my firefox settings and tabs etc.

I did this once before and recalled it being very easy, however I've just followed the instructions and I'm not getting anywhere.

I've got a windows tablet, where the original firefox settings were copied to years ago. It's all up to date.

Since my hard drive on my laptop was trashed, and I have a new one fitted, I'm hoping I can now copy all of the firefox settings from my tablet, onto the reborn laptop.

I've typed in %appdata%\Mozilla\firefox\profiles\ and 2 files are listed.

pjdchlcd.default-release

And

xiwodwfv.default-1561288394972

The instructions tell me to right click, and copy,however on my tablet I have no mouse, so can't right click. (I'm not great using the tablet becauseit has no mouse, and as such, have barely used it)

So here I'm already stuck!

I had the option to copy full path, but could not paste anything to the usb when I did that.

Any help at this time would be much appreciated!

I deleted every Firefox and Mozilla file and folder I could find on my Mac. This was a scorched-Earth deletion (or so I thought). The Firefox application, my profile folder, any user Library files I could find, even caches - I deleted everything. The hope was I could reinstall a pristine version of Firefox (Firefox has been going zombie on me since May). I installed the latest download, signed into my Firefox account - and suddenly, it knew all my previous-used passwords and bookmarks. I thought these were stored in your Profiles folder (and not in the cloud somewhere) -- which I had deleted? How did Firefox find them if they were no longer on my Mac?

Issue: the bookmark toolbar arrow (the one that shows bookmarks that don't fit on the toolbar) is gone from my browser, and the toolbar itself seems truncated (only like 7/8 of the toolbar is filled).

I didn't change any settings or installed any add-ons that could have to do with this. It just disappeared one day, I didn't even notice it at first.

What I tried:

  • I launched Firefox in safe mode, didn't fix it
  • I removed my userChrome.css file, didn't fix it
  • when I cut the bookmarks and paste them into the toolbar, the arrow shows, but when I relaunch the browser it is gone again

See photo for what it looks like (ignore the anonymous favicons, I changed them temporarily with userChrome to preserve privacy, but without userChrome the issue still stands).

Anyone has an idea what happened and how to fix this? Thanks.

While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.

So, I've been using the Picture-in-Picture feature of Firefox a lot - when it works well, it's a really useful feature, especially if, like me, you use a second screen to play the video on, but don't like the overlay constantly popping up over the video. And, when the video is in a modern, widescreen aspect ratio, it usually works.

The problem is that when I try to watch, in fullscreen, a video that's in a 4:3 ratio, as many are on Netflix, Amazon and the like, the Picture-in-Picture window will often, presumably registering the black space on either side, zoom right into the video, cutting off a massive portion of the frame and filling the screen completely. Sometimes it doesn't do that at all, sometime it can be fixed by restarting the video and fiddling with the timings and sometimes there's just seemingly nothing I can do and it just will not stop doing it, no matter how much I reload or what I do!

Please tell me how I can get the damn thing to just keep the video in place and stop it deciding "Hey! You don't need to see all of the video, do you?! No, of course you don't!"

When firefox is in full screen mode, as soon as I take my mouse cursor to switch tabs the Mac Os action bar (bar with close and minimize icons on it ) covers the tabs and make it hard to switch tabs, same happens while reaching for address bar which extremely annoying and frustrating.

I see other applications handles it really well for this situation so its not the macos issue. I reported this on twitter too but no satisfying response. I like firefox and don't want to switch back to other browser so please fix this. This issue is extremely frustrating and impacts the core functionality of the firefox or browser in general.


I have attached images from Chrome and source tree, both are third party application. Best handling of this action is done by safari, which smoothly animate and make the space for close and minimize buttons along with the tabs but that's a first party app and not sure if the same can be achieved by third party apps.

I am running Big Sur but this was happening even in Catalina.

Thank you!
