Recently I have noticed that where there are drop down lists on websites I visit the drop down function no longer works properly if I am using the Firefox browser. If I click on the arrow in a drop down list box the list briefly appears then disappears almost immediately making impossible to select an option from that list. I don't have this problem if I use any other browser like Safari and the drop down list function used to work on Firefox, so presumably this is a bug unless there is something in preferences that needs changing. I am using v88.0.1 on mac OS Sierra 10.12.6. Any help wud be appreciated

Hey!

So I want to watch livestreams on YouTube (Overwatch League to be more precise). The problem is, that the stream starts to lag really hard when I watch it on 1080p or higher. I don't have that problem with videos, just with livestreams and my PC is not bad, my CPU, RAM or GPU are not even close to their limit as far as I can tell. Still, it doesn't work in Firefox but it does in Microsoft Edge. I definitely prefer Firefox over Edge but right now I have to use Edge to watch streams in HD+. I already came across a solution from 2019 where it said I need to install an addon, which would fix the problem but limits the quality to 1080p (https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1245735). However I thought maybe two years later there is a solution that allows me to watch streams in 2K and I mean Edge makes it possible too so I figured I'd just ask.

Thanks for your time Noah

I seem to be having issues with bookmarks randomly appearing on my toolbar. I am on a new installation and know it is not due to any malware. It's beginning to get annoying to have to consistently delete bookmarks that I did not want. My assumption right now is that I am somehow dragging a link onto the bookmarks toolbar as anything else that adds bookmarks is adding at the end, where these bookmarks are showing up in the middle, plus any other option to add bookmarks shows a popup box. Oddly enough it can sometimes be multiples of the same webpage I visted and I don't remember ever touching the address bar. Is there another way firefox can add bookmarks in the middle of the toolbar? Also is there a way I can "Lock" the toolbar, not allowing any more bookmarks to be added unless I unlock it? Recently made the switch from chrome and this is the only real issue I have.

My Private Internet Access VPN does not have access to your browser following recent update. Here's my VPN instructions to reconnect: Firefox has recently changed the way addons handle proxy connection. Allowing the addon to run in Private Windows is now required for proxy settings to be updated.

Please visit the URL below to view you addons page. Then click on the "Private Internet Access" addon to modify its settings. From here, change the "Run in Private Windows" setting to "Allow".

I go to addons page but there is no Private Internet Access addon to open.......................... How do I get to clicking on "Allow"? Thanks.

Full disclosure: I am trying to watch some NSFW content with Firefox in VR at 1440p.

The video in question, I'm not sure I'm allowed to post, however there is massive lag and framedrop while watching, but I've tested on other browsers and there this lag/drop does not exist. I'm currently using an RTX 2070 Super with a 1440p monitor as well.

I had an account with my primary email, and wanted to change that email while also maintaining all the info I already had in it. So I added a secondary email, changed it to be my primary, and the deleted the secondary (ex-primary). The problem is: while trying to create a new account with my old primary email, it says that I need a valid primary email to login, but won't let me create a new account with it. ¿Can I actually do this, or will I need support from Mozilla?

Thanks.

I have had AddBlockPlus installed for years blocking ALL adds ! I have lately seen adds before I can see videos in YouTube ! I use FireFox in latest update - automatic updates itself.

I have tried to UN-install and then RE_install AdblockPlus with no luck - I stille on some videos have adds - one or even two - before I can see the video !

If I wait for a while to start the video sometimes the adds disappears and I can see the video.

I beleave it has to do with updating Windows to 20H2 - because I think I have got the problem after that update.

What can I do to get these adds til Hell ?

Highlights only shows bookmarks added from Firefox, not those imported from an html file. There is no obvious way to fix this inconvenient behavior and no clear solution here or in other forums.

Moving the bookmarks to different locations in bookmark library has no effect. Obviously, there must be some setting or code that causes this and it should not be the default.

As a nontechnical user I am limited in my ability to find and fix the problem. But from a logical standpoint those highlights are populated from somewhere. Being able to change that location or move the imported bookmarks there should not be an easter-egg hunt.

This seems to be an ongoing and unaddressed issue. It probably persists because, while annoying, after failed attempts to resolve or get the community to address the issue, it becomes easier to just re-add the bookmarks.

As someone giving the browser a shot after deciding Opera was basically adware. This annoyance is a fairly disheartening switching cost.

Any help would be appreciated.

How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1

I got started using Firefox a few years ago. Once I got adjusted to the different controls, I really like using it, BUT...

I have updated it three times now (the last time was on accident after ignoring the notice for a long time). Every update breaks the browser for me. I start getting Windows that don't load - the dot just bounces but the window stays blank for hours. The browser fails to load anything. On restart I get message that Firefox failed to close properly. New windows take up to 6 or 7 tries to load a link, and the same for loading into a tab.

The first couple times I updated, I followed the guidance to save favorites, dump the browser and restart from scratch, then load everything back in. While it worked, it's a PITA for a browser that updates pretty frequently, and I think routine updates should be able to load without having to spend hours troubleshooting and reloading. I'm not stupid or computer illiterate - I manage a Linux server cluster at work, but I can't manage my Firefox at home through a routine update.

Can anyone help get Firefox to load and run properly such that it works even after an update? I hate Edge, and Internet Explorer, while easy to learn is full of security holes and often DOA at most websites these days. I refuse to go Google, and I'd prefer to not learn another browser. I like Firefox, but the post-update problems are killing me.

I'm using FF88.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6

I'm a regular participant in the Microsoft Answers Community. When replying to messages there today a space appears when I press the space bar but as soon as I type the next character the space closes & the text runs together. E.g. instead of This is a sentence the text appears as Thisisasentence. If I then go back & re-insert the spaces they are retained but that is a royal pain.

This is a new behavior as of today. I have confirmed that this does not occur when using Safari nor does it occur when replying in the Apple support community.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Hi, I just discovered a problem setting secondary email when both primary and secondary is on the same domain, gmail.com.

Following the instructions:

Set up secondary email

The error that come up says that the secondary email must be different than my account email, but it is, the only common thing is the domain.

So this is a bug, please fix.
