Hope someone can help. My problem: i'm reading along, have a question from an article that I'm browsing, want to open a new tab immediatly to the right of where I am at so I an google some question or whatnot. What I do now is look for link on the page I am currently on, then click that, doesn't matter what or where it leads, so long as it gets me a page I can google search from. This seems untidy, and I can't do it if the page I'm on has no links, or is some kind of white paper.

Both sites worked fine until this morning. I checked via Chrome and Brave and both websites work fine under those browsers so I'm not sure why these sites will no longer load. Other websites will open with Firefox, just not YouTube or Facebook. Other websites with embedded YT videos will load, but the videos will not appear.

I updated my anti-virus (Avast!) and also tried disabling and then removing my VPN extension from Firefox and restarting the PC but the websites still won't load.

Should have been warned that Ver68 would screw up my life. After upgrading from Ver 65 to Ver 68, my profile is not being found by the new install. I do NOT desire "synching' with other devices, and it is a security risk to have to use an "account" to do this. Not to mention getting completely screwed if I cannot access the Web or lose the password.

What idiot thinks this stuff up? What committee of monkeys on keyboards allows it to be implemented?

Hello FF team.

starting with FF update 56 to 57 and so on I got this strange problem: it looks like my key4.db file gets corrupted and FF become almost useless after I access my saved passwords and then exit the browser. If I delete the key4.db file (I still have the key3.db and logins.json files in profile folder) everything works fine. The key4.db file is generated, my passwords are there and I can use them till next browser exit/restart. Here are the symptoms:

- upon start the browser directly asks for master password (normally I'm asked for the master password only when I really need it) - no browsing history is shown in the address bar - enter key and 'Go to...' button do not work at all (I can only open a site if it is bookmarked) - when I go to browser's options there is nothing under 'Search' section - in other words the content cannot be loaded or displayed - when I open 'Saved Logins' dialog there is nothing - there are no *corrupt files in my profile directory

So when this happens I have to exit the browser and delete the key4.db file. However if I don't access my saved logins during the session at all, there is no such problem. I can start/use/exit the browser as many times as I want and it works fine. So it looks like the access to the saved logins breaks something.

I have tried turning off addons, tried safe mode, no change. Previously everything was fine till update.

Now, videos like on youtube run at a very low framerate, animated icons just crawl, countdowns that should be one per second are running at one per 5 seconds, everything that should be moving is very slow. Browsing to new pages is fine. Have tried some of the suggested changes to settings, nothing helps.

Firefox doesn't open tab in background with CMD

I know there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1071788 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1061460 but suggested `browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground` doesn't work for me - it simply opens everything in the background which is even more annoying.

At this point I would consider this a bug - I don't give a rat's nose about what magic javascript (pseudo-)developers but if I hold CMD button and make a click I want window to be opened in the background! (it seems that gmail is the main culprit, but probably most of google-produced FantasticCreation is affected by it…)

Everything worked fine until latest Win 7 update, but i have no functioning 'restore point' to rollback to, so i have to find a workaround. Sound works on the PC, i can play mp3's or mp4's fine. But audio from Youtube or FaceBook or BBC Iplayer is absent when i open these sites in Firefox. (yes i've checked for volume and muting, i've cleared the cache i 've tried in safe mode, all without success) I tried one modification to the registry which worked ONCE and not afterwards.....which is of course impossible. If i open the very same sites in Opera...the audio is perfect. WHAT ON EARTH is going on and how do i put this right? Thanks in advance for any insights and fixes.

I'm old enough to know what addons i install and don't need and especially want a permanent supervisor that drives me in such a situation to have all the scripts and more enabled that i don't want!
