Firefox will not create an account because it keeps saying cookies are disable when they are not disabled. I have had to do this using Chrome.

I know this has probably been asked before, but none of the solutions really work for me. Playing Youtube or other video on sites like Vimeo result in choppy playback. I have ruled out hardware problems, because playing local video works fine. This issue also occurs on Chrome, and turning on or off hardware acceleration does nothing.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Dear Community,

I recently switched back to FF from chrome and I really love it. There is one thing I cannot get to work though: I would like to have google as default search engine but without country redirect. In Chrome this is done by using https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr as search engine. What is the equivalent in FF?

Thanks in advance!

Recently, if I want to log into websites that require passwords, every time I open Firefox, I have to go to Options > Privacy & Security and RECHECK the box for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites," which is now unchecked every time I open Firefox. I can't find a way to have the box stay checked session-to-session. This is a recent development and, I suspect, is related to the "upgrade" to the latest version. Is there a fix?

I am using Firefox version 64.0 build ID 20181206201918 on Windows 10 version 1803 build 17134.407.

When visiting 4chan.org images in the popular threads section will not load however when visiting 4channel.org the images in the popular threads section load fine.

I briefly looked at the source code for both pages and I am unable to see any difference as to why this is happening.

When I visit the same sites in Chrome there are no problems.

The troubleshooting I have gone through so far is to refresh firefox (that made no difference), and change the names for the following folders:

%appdata%\Mozilla\Extensions

%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox

%LocalAppData%Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

That also made no difference.

Can anyone replicate this problem? If so, is it a bug in Firefox when encountering certain code?

I have attached screen shots of the websites in question showing you what I am seeing.

edit: So I forgot to mention that after renaming the folders for Firefox, effectively resetting it and removing all customization, I immediately tried the web pages in question making no changes to Firefox.

I've noticed this on various sites, but I'll use YouTube as an example. I'm sitting on my YouTube 'home' page and I see a set of 'suggestions'. I click on one of the suggested vids and watch it. Afterward, I hit the 'back' button in the browser (there is not an embedded back button in the app). Sometimes hitting the 'back' button takes me back to the same YouTube page with my suggested videos and I can watch another. Other times, hitting the 'back' button causes a new page to load and I now have a new set of suggested videos displayed. This behavior is not consistent - sometime the page load occurs, other times the same page appears. I cannot detect a pattern to this. What's annoying about this is that there may have been more than one thing I wanted to view on the initial 'suggested videos' section of the original page displayed. However, after watching one of the vids and hitting the 'back' button, if a new page loads, I now no longer have access to those other suggested vids I wanted to watch. As I noted earlier, I've seen this behavior in other apps too. I don't know if this is the right place to ask about this, or if it's a browser thing at all, I'm just trying to understand what's causing this behavior and figure out if there's anyway for me to mitigate it.

Firefox version 63.0.1 on Windows PC. This week, Firefox is slow to load all web pages. After pressing enter in the address bar or clicking a link, approximately 3-5 seconds will elapse before any page information is displayed. During this time, the bouncing ball is in motion where the favicon is usually displayed on the tab next to the page title. Then the page will visually load very quickly, while the bouncing ball continues for another 3-5 seconds before indicating the page load is complete.

This happens consistently on all webpages. The same behavior is observed in Firefox safe mode. Chrome loads pages without delay on this computer. This is a relatively new behavior which I've noticed within the past week. I'm on a 100Mb/s connection with very low latency and a fast DNS response (< 5 ms).

How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

Trying to solve issue for a friend. Occurred while his wife was using the computer so has no idea how this happened. When he opens Firefox, the web page is displayed off to the right side of the monitor. This does not occur with IE or Google Chrome. He is only able to see the very left side of the web page and unable to drag the page to the left. I have attempted to un-install and re-install Firefox and that does not solve the issue. His OS is Windows 8. resolution is 16810x150 which is irrelevant because it does not happen with IE or Google Chrome. Can anyone assist?

I just installed Firefox 63.0 and discovered that the leading (inter-line space) between Bookmarks items has been increased.

Was this intentional? I find it an annoyance because I now have to scroll down more to see lists that easily fit on the screen vertically before. And the change adds nothing to readability.
