When using Netflix in full screen there is a slim transparent bar which shows my desktop at the top of the frame. It was not here a few days ago, i might have updated since then. It does not appear in YouTube full screen but i have not tried any other websites to see if it's there. Restarting my system and Firefox did not resolve the issue. Is there any way to fix this, or do i have too wait for a bug fix/the problem to be identified?

I have been using Firefox as my browser for years. I like its privacy features.

Problem. Often, when I click on a URL to a secure site, as the page is loading, Firefox freezes. That tab & any other tabs that are open are frozen. If I click on them, nothing happens. Even after waiting for 2 minutes, the browser does not correct itself, or come back. I have to use Cntrl Alt Del to “close” Firefox. Eventually, the “Restart Firefox” dialog box appears. I have to wait for Firefox to stop running before the restart takes effect, & Firefox comes back. This happens with 3 or 4 secure sites that I visit, including Discover.com. Firefox also occasionally freezes while I am on a secure site, when I go from one page to another.

Is this a fault of the Firefox browser? Is there something I can or should do when I click on a secure link? Any suggestions would be appreciated. H. Meier.

I have a 1 Gbps line from Comcast. I have a new HP desktop PC, 32 GB Ram. Speed tests from several test sites confirm good line speed. When I sign in to my email provider using Firefox, the circle on the screen goes round and round for up to 20 seconds. Not so with MS Edge. When I select an image to view using Firefox, I can watch the screen being painted. Not so with MS Edge. I have had slow responses from several other websites. Comcast has come out to my house twice to verify line speed. No problems found. Firefox appears to be the bottleneck at this point. Please help.

Thanks..........Bob

I had to Restart/Refresh Firefox because I lost my dropdown menus and then the Google Search bar in the right-hand corner disappeared. Somehow I got it to reappear but it's too small. I followed steps in several different posts and can't get Google Search Bar to widen. 1. I placed the mouse pointer between the search bar and the address bar and nothing happened. 2. The following didn't work for me because I can't find the “Use Small Icons” box: "Click the “View” tab on the program menu and choose “Toolbars.” Select “Customize” from the fly-out menu and a “Customize” toolbar screen loads. Deselect the “Use Small Icons” box and click “Done” to enlarge the icons on the Firefox toolbar." I attached a screenshot of what FF Browser looks like.

When going to mail.yahoo.com, I get this error message:

The page isn't redirecting properly An error occurred during a connection to guce.yahoo.com. • This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

and this is the URL that I am redirected to: https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?brandType=nonEu&gcrumb=bWAMXTs&done=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.yahoo.com%2F

It works OK with Chrome, I just do not like Chrome! I made changes to allow cookies and that made no difference.

Firefox updated last night (March 2, sometime in the evening). When I finally was able to reopen it, it had gone back to a much older saved bunch of tabs. I had a very crazy day, and had multiple tabs open when I left, that I meant to go back to and finish up with, now they are gone and I can't remember them all. There were also tabs that I know I closed quite a while ago, so it really went back in time. Is there any way to get those tabs from yesterday back? They are not in History under "recently closed," I suppose because Firefox went back to a MUCH older set of things, so it doesn't "remember" them as "closed," because it doesn't "remember" them at all?

When I left-click on text and hold the left mouse button, then right-click, first release the right button, then the left button, a "selection mode" is activated, where the end of the selection follows the mouse pointer despite no button is held. In principle this looks like a useful feature (or it would if the scroll wheel worked in that mode, which it doesn't). But at the same time, the context menu opens when the right button is released. So we trigger two features at once, making both less useful, because they're getting in each other's way.

This frequently happens to me when double clicking on a word and right clicking to open the context menu on it. Accidental overlap of the left and right clicks triggers the selection mode.

Can this behaviour be configured (e.g. to use a custom shortcut) or, if not, be deactivated entirely?

I'm using Firefox 123.0.1 on Linux (openSUSE Tumbleweed).

Firefox does ot remember my passwords (it did originally) I have checked the box under settings but Firefox still does not remember and when I go back it is unchecked again. I have tried updating, uninstalling and reinstalling but no change. Edge remembers OK but do not like edge and have tried other browsers but did not like as much even though they saved passwords.

I just updated Firefox. That's supposed to improve things, right?

Now the address bar is gray most of the time. It looks normal when I'm entering a search, or editing a URL, the rest of the time, it's just ugly now. I don't like things to be changed arbitrarily like that. What is the rationale for changing the way that looks? How can I change it back? Please give me a setting, or about:config preference, and please don't get direct file editing involved, okay?

Why doesn't tiling the windows work as well as it used to? Yesterday, I could hit super+left, or super+right, from a maximized window, and it'd tile to the left or right side of the screen perfectly, the first time, every time, no problems. Now it has an intermediate stage where there's a gap all the way around the window. It seems to improve by clicking on a different window, then back into the Firefox window, but that intermediate step just shouldn't happen! What's a fix for this?

I also hit the button at the bottom to include optional troubleshooting information, but it said instead, "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps." No, I'm not doing that, get that thing working right, too!

I have some Bookmarks on my laptop. I have some of these Bookmarks (Not all) on my tablet, plus some other Bookmarks.

If I sync them, which direction does the sync work in? Will all my Bookmarks on my laptop now appear on my tablet (Which I do not want to happen)? Will all my Bookmarks on my tablet now appear on my laptop (Which I do want)? Will I end up with two copies of most Bookmarks, because all my laptop Bookmarks are transfered to my tablet, plus all my tablet Bookmarks are transfered to my laptop?

I cannot find any explanatioin of what Sync actually does.

Hi,

I had a new windows installation done without backing up the firefox profile while foolishly resetting the firefox password too without using the recovery key and effectively losing my current data.

Is there anything that could be done to restore the data to my account or is that the end?

With increasing frustration, I'm am trying top retain certain cookies when deleting other cookies and history. Instructions I read say use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes" with exceptions noted, and do not toggle "clear history when Firefox closes." Except that in my Firefox settings, they work in tandem - the choices are both on or both off. I can't turn one on and the other off. Under manage exceptions, I am entering the entire website address with the https. Any suggestions? Thanks. Joe Markarian
