For sometime with Firefox I have been difficulty with sites loading but not showing all options. When I do the same thing in Google Chrome it works ok. Once I clear data in Privacy and security it seems to work. Seems like it is connected to near everyone going to MFA.

An example: I have a citi credit card and on Firefox it does not show the 2022 annual statement. In Chrome it does ok. When I clear data in Firefox it then works. With my PNC bank account it gives and error on the url and will not load the site. Clear data and it works?

Is there a solution so it works on all sites.

Hi.

Firefox is very slow. If i do the same browsing, in Chrome, there is no problems.

Reinstall Firefox, and all the guides, is tested - no luck.

I really love Firefox, and have used it, for many years, but this slow experience - that will scare me away.

After the last Firefox update, pages within Ancestry.com do not load properly. Specifically, DNA Matches do not load. I have a blank page. I ran Firefox in troubleshooting mode and I do not have the same problem. Can you help me resolve this issue. I really do not want to have to enter troubleshooting mode just to view a website that has been working.

Textbox caret stops blinking after a few seconds

In the past the caret in text entry fields used to blink/pulsate/flash forever in both Firefox and Thunderbird. (Text entry boxes, such as the browser URL-bar, the e-mail To/Subject/Content textboxes, online forms, etc.). Now in the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 and Thunderbird 102.8.0 the caret stops blinking after just a few seconds. This is very confusing and frustrating for my grandmother and she already called me several times because Firefox and Thunderbird 'stopped working'. I explained to her that this is a new feature but she does not understand and keeps forgetting it after a few days. She is used to the cared blinking continuously, it has been blinking for the past decades whenever she wanted to type something in the computer and it only stopped blinking when the computer program froze or crashed.

I am sure that my grandma is not the only person having issues with the caret not flashing, I for one also would like to have a caret that blinks forever, so when I look away from the screen and look back I do not have to search the text to find where I left my caret.

Please make it so that the default caret appearance and behavior is the same as in all other programs (i.e. blinking forever), as it used to be in the past, just like what everyone is used to. I argue that the majority of users is used to and also expects a blinking caret when they are writing an e-mail or search online and you are confusing a whole lot of people with this minor change, people who do not know how to report bugs or seek help themselves. It's a sign of poor user-friendliness if grandmas need to call their grandchildren or children for help just to write e-mails which they used to be able to do on their own for many years in the past.

I hereby suggest adding an accessibility option for people who wish to disable the blinking cursor and to change the default behavior back to 'caret flashing forever'.

This error might be the result of the Firefox update on 18 Feb. MS Edge works fine, however.

I have tried linking to other Search Engine home pages and also setting HTTPS-Only Mode to 'ON' for all windows - both without success.

Interestingly, 'thumbnail' links saved on the Firefox homepage work fine too. The problem seems to only occur when I try to input a new web query in the search box.

This morning, upon opening Firefox, I noticed that I could not scroll through any pages or windows. I turned off scroll lock (or so I thought), and it began scrolling. But then, in all of my other windows, scroll lock was activated. So, I hit my scroll lock button again, and now all other windows will scroll except for Firefox. Is there a setting I need to change?

It appears as if scroll lock is reversed on Firefox vs. all other apps on my computer.

I have noticed this happening and dug a bit to find a quirk.

Opening a link in a new tab: Doesn't work if the men hits the top of the screen.

See attached video via link.

(Of course when I recorded it, it worked, but it took some effort.) Multiple clicks to get it to open.

But if you watch a bit more of the video: if I scroll the screen so the menu is NOT at the top of the screen and I select "open in new tab" it opens straight away.

WARNING! TURN DOWN THE VOLUME! Sorry, but I only realised that the sound was also captured and ..... Anyway: Please turn down the volume!

https://anonfiles.com/74AcRaY9y8/Firefox_open_in_new_tab_webm

Now, not the DEFINITIVE proof, this has been happening to me a lot lately, and it was only by chance I noticed the quirk about "top of screen".

Is anyone else seeing this?
