Hi everyone,

My Windows 10 Firefox updated to 86, and I noticed a change in how some jQuery Mobile controls are rendering.

If you go here and scroll down to the 'Checkboxes' section: https://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.4.5/forms/

You'll see that the control group is no longer rendering with a block display style. Previous versions, along with all versions of Chrome, Edge, etc, have them taking up the entire container width. I have attached a few screenshots for convenience.

I can work around this in my product, but this may be a canary in the coal mine of many other display differences. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them.

Thanks and have a great day!

Firefox is up to date as are my video drivers. This issue only occurs on Firefox, playing the videos in Chrome or IE results in smooth and expected playback at all resolutions and frame rates (1080 60fps, 4k, etc).

When playing videos through the Firefox browser however, the video will stutter, repeat and recycle frames periodically, causing weird and unpleasant frame jumps. The audio playback does not seem to be affected at all.

I disabled the small number of add-ons I have and the problem still persists.

Hi.

When logged in to google (e.g., gmail) in one firefox tab, I am them auto-logged in to that same google account in any new tab or window I open. Is there a way to stop this?

I would like to be able to have one tab logged in to a google product (e.g., gmail, google calendar, youtube), but retain a "blank slate" when I open new tabs or windows, so that I can browse anonymously or log in to multiple different accounts (google or otherwise).

I have privacy badger and HTTPS everywhere installed in firefox, have set the browser to block all third party cookies, and to never remember history (high security settings across the board) . I tried enabling Multi-Account Containers, but I'm not sure how to use it and also suspect it is a more complicated functionality than I actually need.

I would imagine there has to be a way to "break" the connection between multiple open tabs or windows. Thanks!

Would love to switch from Safari to Firefox on my iPhone. Found Mozilla Help instructions, but there is no listing in the App Store for "Firefox for iOS page." I see only Firefox Private Safe Browser and Firefox Focus: Privacy. Neither shows a Get or Install button. I tried tapping the first icon of these two. When I tap the icon, I see "open this link in external app? with a link. I can click ok or cancel. When I do either of those, it just takes me back to where I was. Please advise...

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?

I've just received an email on my - previously - main email address (let's say: e1), about a data breach on another (e2) email address of mine.

When I log in to Firefox Monitor, with my main email address (e3), only that email address is displayed as monitored. The whole list (I don't know, 10+ addresses) that should be monitored, is gone.

Can someone explain to me a. why is the mail not send to the main email address and b. where is my list of monitored email addresses?

It seems Mozilla has removed the SSB option from firefox. I used that all the time and without it, I have had to revert to using chrome, which I don't want to do. Wny remove a feature? Its buggy? So what. A buggy hidden beta feature is better than no feature at all. It has users, including me. So just leave it as unsupported. Don't just axe it.

As to it having "no benefit". Absolutely the opposite - in a world where every app is now a cloud web app, we need to be able to separate different apps within windows, not just have multiple indistinguishable windows or tabs for each of the apps. So yes this was a seriously retrograde decision, and one which is sending firefox in a backward direction. SSB was the future. It's just few people were aware.

So when are mozilla going to reverse this decision? Does anyone know any other clever way to achieve the same thing - i.e. a separate fixed app for each webpage.

Hi, I try to orginize my bookmar sidebar. I have "Other bookmarks" folder in the bottom, and try to drag it to top, but firefox creates a copy of folder instead of moving it. Also, I erroneously drag "Bookmark menu" and firefox create a copy of it inside "Other bookmarks" folder. It looks like cycle reference - when I click on "Bookmark menu" inside "Other bookmarks" I any time see again "Other bookmarks" and "Bookmark menu" inside it. Looks like nightmare! How can I fix it? please help!
