Hello, I have issues with Firefox developer version for couple months now, when I play videos, like youtube, or other sites they constantly lag. They play for like 1min and lag, continue for another 2min then lag etc etc. (even short videos on twitter lag). It was not like that before and I don't have this problem in other browsers. Does anyone know what can be the problem here? Thanks

I just recently upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Before the upgrade if I wheel clicked on a link it would open up in a new tab. Now it does absolutely nothing. I've even tried holding the wheel click for 10 seconds, still nothing.

I have verified the following settings in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When I was doing a search for related questions to this problem I found a user 3 years ago had a similar problem, and that they had an addition setting: middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This setting no longer seems to be there. I have no idea if this setting was recently removed, and is the source of my problem, or if it was removed a while ago and my problem is the result of some other change. I have restarted Firefox twice, and even rebooted my laptop, in an effort to fix this problem. Nothing has worked. Depending on what I am doing I rely on using the wheel click HEAVILY, as it is much simpler to close a tab then to hit the back button 4, 10, or 20 times to return to where I started, or if I'm trying to keep track of what links I've followed from doing a search without having to re-do the search and hope I get the exact same results (with Google I never do).

At this time I am already heavily inclined to just return to the previous version of Firefox, despite how much of a pain that will be, however this is a recently released update, so I feel I should give the devs a chance to fix any new bugs from the update. That, and I won't have the time around work for several days, probably over a week, which makes it more practical to give the devs a chance to release a patch that fixes the problem.

Today I kept getting the above error message when I tried to log on to Halifax online banking. I do not run a VPN. I cleared the Halifax cookies. I rebooted my router and I rebooted my laptop. I still get this error message. However I can log on OK if I use Chrome so this must be a Firefox issue. Any other suggestions?

Hi Mozilla Community,

Currently on version 97.0.1 of Mozilla and have not been able to download any files from Google Drive.

When I click on a files to download it just keeps loading scripts at the bottom like - docs.0k.cc.googledocs.... and nothing happens.

I have read countless of links to solve the issue and still it won't download any files - only uploads is fine.

So I have: - clear cache/cookies - disable addons like Adblock etc - privacy & security set on Standard in settings - added cookies exceptions- googlecontent, googledrive etc - turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection

What else is missing as to why it has stopped allowing me to download files? Its quite frustrating when it use to work when I enable the third cookie party and now the setup doesn't seem to accept it.

Mozilla is my default browser and prefer to use it rather always switch to Chrome for downloads.

I've contacted Google about Google Drive and they said the problem is not on their side.

So any help would be appreciated!!

My bookmarks toolbar disappeared. I was able to restore it, but it's blank. Using an add-in, I can show my bookmarks in a side pane. That pane does show a Bookmarks Toolbar folder, which has the expected contents.

Additional issue: how do I rearrange my toolbars. The desired order, from top to bottom is title menu navigation tabs bookmarks

After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.

After firefox update to 100.0 - i can't use any of my addons, and cant install new one. All my current updates appears in "disabled" status, and there's no "enable" button. I have many addons, so it's the global problem.

Also, i can't install any of updates from addons.mozilla.org, i get message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". All addon xpi files are downloaded without problem using "save as", also, after clicking "install" on addons website i see download progress.

Please help to resolve this issue!

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

HP1320 laser printer. Win 7 / 64 bit. HP printer driver.

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.
