About a week ago I started having trouble downloading large high resolution photo files. I have been downloading these files for work for over a year and they have always load very quick. I would click on the file and the entire photo file would be there instantly. However, for the past week these file do not download or download very slowly. I have checked internet speed, which is 310. I can also switch browsers and have no problem downloading the same files. So its not my computer and it not the internet, so something has changed with Firefox. Can you help?? I have used Firefox for over 20 years and don't want to change browsers, but I have to work and this downloading is a problem.

This has happened to me too many times and haven't found a solution to it. When I open Firefox after I have booted up my PC, my browser would either function as normal and everything is kept the same, or would act as if I am new to Firefox and reset my settings and add-ons. I tried re-installing the browser and creating new browser profile, yet those solutions that I've found hasn't worked. Any solutions would be helpful, thanks

(In the image provided, this is what happens at times when opening the browser after turning on my PC)

When I go to clear the cache, browsing history, cookies, etc. the only options we have are "Today", a few even smaller time periods (1, 2, 4 hours), or "Everything"! What's up with that? Every other browser offers at least the option of "past 7 days" or some other time period that goes further back than one day, without having to clear "Everything", don't others find this to be arbitrarily limited? I can't even delete cache from yesterday, much less a few days earlier...

Opening new tab via right-click on other tabs doesn't put cursor focus in URL bar

If you have multiple tabs open and you hit Ctrl-T to open a new one, it opens it at the end of the tabs, and the cursor focus moves to the URL bar so you can start typing in an address/search.

If you right-click on any of those tabs, it opens a new tab to the right of that tab, instead of at the end (which is what I want, as right-clicking on a specific one to open a new tab, to me, means you are linking those tabs in layout and want them together) BUT the cursor focus DOES NOT move to the URL bar.

This seems pretty counter-intuitive, and means that so many times I right-click, Open New Tab, and start typing a URL and then see that I have to stop typing, click in the URL bar, and start typing all over again.

Is there an about:config to force the focus to the URL bar, or is this a bug? If there's no setting for this, I would definitely consider this a bug because you have 2 different behaviors for New Tabs.

Hello. I cannot remove the suggestions that appear in the drop down address bar suggestions list. Shift-delete does not work. Changing the search settings in tools does not work. There is no three dots that appear next to the URL, or a pop up that shows up if I hover over the link. They are stubbornly embedded on that bar and refuse to leave.

The only thing that works is to delete all history, but I don't want to do that. There may be some solution where I micromanage site permissions on a site by site basis but that's way too much work, and should not have to do that.

The URLs on the list themselves are totally random. I cannot figure out how Firefox decided that THESE are the URLs to feature. I visited like once, in a long string of activity.

Anyway, my inability to perform a simple task like right-click-delete or demand that it "stop doing that" is making me claustrophobic.

Hello. I regularly read a scientific site that often uses Greek characters. Most of them are replaced by a square in FF as well as some mathematical symbols. The issue doesn't happen with Safari hence the said characters are not missing in the System. I uploaded one screenshot taken with Firefox and one with Safari. The page it's taken on is https://www.ca-se-passe-la-haut.fr/2023/01/mesure-du-taux-dune-reaction-cle-du.html. When the issue is too annoying I switch to Safari but my main browser has always been FF so it's bothering. Is there any remedy? TIA Best regards Nick

I like when I open a bookmark, that I am not forced to view it right away. This can be VERY annoying when opening multiple bookmarks but I want to stay on my current one without having to switch back to the one I was using. I would like an option added at least to have bookmarks in that automatically switch to when opening. Please.

A website I have to use for my work (for the Queensland Department of Education) requires that I input a 6-digit code; for *security*, they insist it be input by clicking on a keypad that scrambles the position of the number keys each time... It's meant to look like the first image attached below, but when I try to open it in Firefox, it looks like the second image and I can't input my code. I'd like to be able to use Firefox for EVERYTHING but I end up having to use Chrome to access this site, which I use pretty much every day for work, and it's very inconvenient.

Apps Firefox and Thunderbird are having problems opening links to webpages. In particular, Cloudflare cannot verify (it just cycles between a checkbox "Are you human?" and a browser check) when I use FF.

I use Win11 with NordVPN, but this wasn't a problem before the latest Win11 update. (It also seems to have affected TB reconnecting to Ymail.) I'm now using Chromium to read my Ymail avoid Cloudflare verification, but I'd rather keep using FF and TB apps.

I've been going though Cloudflare, NordVPN and Mozilla online help for a few days now, and I think I've tried everything there.

Thoughts?

As of a month or so ago I have been unable to watch age restricted videos on YT. The warning prompt appears asking me to verify that I want to proceed. When clicked, it simply takes me back to the YT home page. Restricted mode is set to off and I am able to watch these videos in Internet Explorer with the same Google account. I have also ran FF in safe mode and it still takes me back to the home page.

Any word on floating videos ? Have been asking for several years. Any progress on that front yet ? They're making a comeback and are as annoying as ever. Have been through all Settings tweaks etc -- nothing has ever worked. One of the most annoying user problems in the world and almost nothing has been done that I can see. Others trying to Sucker me into Chrome or Edge, which they claim are perfect and totally privacy oriented.

I'm on an M1 MacBook Air on macOS Sonoma developer beta 4 and for some reason videos on YouTube and Vimeo seem to be flickering and the colors orange, red, and green (not blue) seem to have the most visible flicker (it's quite rapid too, twice per second).

I'm on the latest (as of writing this post) version of Firefox 115.0.2. This issue does not occur on Chromium and Safari on the same device. Troubleshooting Mode does not seem to resolve the issue.

I understand macOS developer betas can break stuff and this could be the result of said beta but I'd like to report this issue to know if anyone else could also be experiencing this issue.

Firefox seems to think I am in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. I am actually in New York and have no connection to Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

Google Chrome on the same (Windows 11 Microsoft Surface Pro X) computer has the right location for me, as does Microsoft Edge. Checking my IP address with https://www.iplocation.net/ gives a location reasonably close to my real location and nowhere near Arkansas.

If I clear all cache in Firefox, it does go back to the right address - at the cost of a lot of annoying re-entry of routine information. But after a few days it goes back to insisting I am in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

Before I switch to Chrome, is there a way to fix this?

When I pressed the "+" symbol at the right side of my tabs with the left mouse button, a new tab opens at the most right place. So far, so easy.

When I pressed the same "+" symbol using the middle mouse button, the new tab opened right beside the active tab. Now, middle mouse button and left mouse button do the same thing.

Work around could be to open the context menu (right mouse button) of a tab, choose "new tab" an get a new tab right beside the tab chosen with the mouse pointer while pressing the right mouse button.
