Maybe this is obvious and I just don't know the proper terms to find a solution, but I've recently lost the little loading icon that spins in the left hand corner of a tab when you load a site (see gif). No idea what happened to it, but I've tried refreshing and reinstalling to no avail. Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine (not because of this) and it worked correctly until I booted up this morning and it's switched back to that weird icon. Any ideas how I might fix it? Could something like a windows update have messed it up? I miss that little spinney icon more than I would have expected.

Private windows: what happens if Firefox crashes?

Hello, I have two questions about private windows.

First, on the Home tab it says: "Firefox clears your search and browsing history when you close all private windows"

but what happens if Firefox crashes during a private window session? Will some remnants of your activity remain in some files, as Firefox did not have the chance to clear data as it normally would when closed gracefully?

Second question, when in private mode, does Firefox write data to either favicons.sqlite or places.sqlite (even if only temporarily)?

Thanks.

Since installing Firefox 110.0.1 on Windows 10 machine, my search bar is only about 1" wide. When I enter Troubleshoot Mode, the search bar is normal. So, I disabled every extension and am now using the built in Firefox Theme. I even went so far as to remove my chrome folder from the profile but the problem still persists. What can I do to correct this?

Thank you, Reynaldo

Google Drive Apps require dowloading of PDF instead of printing

When I do the keybind (Control + P) or press the print icon in google apps (google docs, drawings, etc) it automatically downloads a pdf instead of opening the print menu. Chosen solution

Printing on any other site pops up with the printing options. Only on google apps does this happen, including gmail.

This problem is non-existent on Google Chrome and Edge. It does persist on Brave although. Haven't tested any other browsers.

I'm not sure when this changed, but I can no longer shrink my search bar to make room for more extension shortcuts. There's no double-arrow, no option I can find in customizing (I've tried the unsupported compact thing). I've gotten myself so worked up over this, I'm sure I'm overlooking something obvious.

Thanks for your help.

All typed text appears blue until you break it in some ways like pressing the spacebar or moving the keyboard cursor with the arrow keys. It happens at the firefox search bar as well, and search suggestions and autocomplete doesn't work whenever it happens.

I have just updated Firefox, and I am not able to scroll at all. My mouse wheel does not work and the mousepad scrolling does not either, but I am still able to scroll by pressing down the scroll wheel (image below). I am able to scroll on all other applications and I was able to scroll on the 'Which topic best describes your question?' mini-menu, I'm just not sure why I can't do it on here. Thanks!

My problem is simple. I'm trying to use this supermarket website (continente.pt) and the website doesn't load up the images of the products. I have to reload a bunch of times until it finally does. I switched from Google chrome but apparently it was a big mistake, never thought Firefox was so crap. BTW, It's not my adblocker, turned off Enhanced tracking protection and cleared cookies. Nothing works. (on annex I show firefox and google chrome being used on the same website)

Hi, I have noticed that when using the latest release of Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, when I go to ABCnews.go.com and click into a story, there is an autostarting video. But instead of either waiting until I click on it or autostarting normally, it flashes wildly. I have disabled all extensions and the problem persists. Has anyone else encountered this? And more importantly, does anyone have a fix for this issue?

I have working touchpad scrolling in all windows apps except for firefox.

I tried all 3 states of `ui.trackpoint_hack.enabled` and it still doesn't work. Scrolling is working running in troubleshooting mode. I ran "refresh firefox" but it still doesn't work. I made sure all synced plugins were disabled and still doesn't work.

How can I fix it?

I am using Firefox Developer Edition Version: 110.0b5 (64-bit) on M1 Mac running Ventura 13.1.

I am building an webapp some XHR triggering in background but it is not necessary to run the application (running fine on other browsers). But on Firefox Developer Edition, It shows a error window with the message and stops loading the application.

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:4000.

localhost:4000 is the failing XHR request domain. I have attached the screenshot.

How to ignore the XHR failing errors just like other browsers?

This morning, upon opening Firefox, I noticed that I could not scroll through any pages or windows. I turned off scroll lock (or so I thought), and it began scrolling. But then, in all of my other windows, scroll lock was activated. So, I hit my scroll lock button again, and now all other windows will scroll except for Firefox. Is there a setting I need to change?

It appears as if scroll lock is reversed on Firefox vs. all other apps on my computer.
