Hi, I have spent hours this morning trying to diagnose a problem with Firefox Update 115. It is Unstable and I can't Stream Music from Youtube or even Amazon Music. Web pages from sites I use everyday are out of order when displaying text as well. It's a real mess. Now, here's the kicker, I haven't been able to stream my music from both aforementioned websites, but get this, if I use the Incognito Browser, Music streams No Problem. Seems like you guys broke something in the main FF browser. I have spent hours trying to debug this and have concluded that your most recent Update has broken streaming links. I can't rollback the Update and that is even more frustrating. Please Fix This. BTW, your Help Pages really stink. Sorry, but they offer no help when the problem is clearly FF. Kind Regards, Joe White

I have Firefox 115.1.0esr. Google is my home page. When I search for things I want to ONLY use the Google bar. I DON'T want to start typing and have the URL bar start to fill in. See screenshot, I've unchecked what I think should allow only the Google bar to fill in and search. But it's still going to the MAIN URL bar above. Please help me fix this, it's driving me crazy!!!!!

While I was doing my banking I got an error message saying I was running an older version and needed to update my browser. When I updated to the latest version of Firefox all my bookmarks and passwords got dumped. All of them. I can't find a previous profile to reinstall anywhere or an option to install a previous version. How do I roll this back?

By the way: I AM NOT HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!!!

The settings page just shows a number, but no units as on my laptop's default font settings page. I think that they are pixels, but I'm not sure. I want to set my font sizes in points, so that the text will appear the same size on my laptop's screen as on my much larger external monitor.

Greetings:

When I enter Canva with Firefox 115.1 / W7 everything is perfect until I get to use the image editor of this platform.

Since I was getting an error message from Canva I have investigated, this has to do with WebGL

Doing a test on the page with WebGl 1, this is working.

Doing a test on the page with WebGl2, it seemed to me that it was limited.

I read the settings in config to disable performance and not overclock the hardware (I have an old Nvidia graphics card)

I enter the page again, perform the test again with WebGl2, and it appears to be working.

So far so good.

I enter Canva and now when I try to edit a photo (I previously cleared the cache and restarted Firefox) I don't even get an error message anymore and Firefox freezes.

Now (and that's why I'm writing this report) if I log into Canva with Google Chrome on the same PC, I don't have any kind of problem editing a photo. That is to say; there is not a problem with my graphics card but with Firefox.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

I don't want to use Google Chrome!

Thank you.

Mac OSX 10.13, FireFox 115.1.0esr (64-bit): previously cmd-click on link would open in new background tab. Now it opens the link in BOTH current tab and a new background tab. This has started occurring in the last few days (mid Aug 2023). This is especially a problem when viewing CraigsList where it was very helpful to be able to cmd-click on links of no interest to mark them as "read" while remaining on the main list page. Now it is necessary to back up to previous page (main list) after clicking on each link... Is this perhaps a recent change (I had auto-update turned on)?

Hi, I just discovered something odd. Trying to troubleshoot something with an android app communicating via web and laptop to free up the phone, and the relevant website has a chat popup and Firefox won't open the popup. I added the website to the whitelist and saved, but still wouldn't. Tried troubleshooting mode, but nothing. Switched to Chrome and it works fine. Cleared cookies and cache and restarted Firefox, but still no luck. The website is ExpressVPN.com. Macbook Pro OS10.14, Firefox up to date, version 115.1.0esr (64-bit).

I've been trying to delete this very account for about 20 minutes now to no avail. I have a separate account, but want to associate it with this email and can't do that while this account exists. Every time I try to delete this account, it tells me that I've entered the wrong password. I have changed the password twice now with the same results, even given an extremely simple password. I'm hoping there's a nuclear option or something.

Furthermore, I'd like to express how displeased I am that this is my only recourse. Really wish I could get help from Mozilla staff instead of posting on a forum and hoping. That would probably get this solved much more quickly.

Firefox did some update and bookmarks disappeared. So I tried to restore the backup and it is also empty. In fact all the backups seem to not populate any bookmarks. I have another laptop and airdropped the backup file to that laptop to see if I could get the bookmarks back on firefox on there. It worth pointing out that firefox was not updated on my other laptop. When I tried to restore on the other laptop is erased the few bookmarks I had there but didnt give me the missing ones. So now I have 2 computers with no bookmarks.

Please help! Tried to restart , shut down, multiple times and nothing is working.

Linux 115.1esr popup/ephemeral windows not working correctly under TWM window manager

Just being a 'user' , this is simply to report (and hopefully get it all working again) to the greater good on here and at Mozilla, that popup/ephemeral windows , or whatever they are called, in the 115esr release no longer function correctly (they did with the previous versions) with TWM window manager in this experience.

When clicking on a tool bar icon that launches a 'popup' type window, or in forms using 'drop down' controls for example, as soon as mouse moves over the popup or the popup gets focus, the popup gets closed immediately; it does not stay around to enough to allow a selection or whatever, as it should.

If one can 'tab' into a popup and use the keyboard (keyboard focus so to speak), then it is possible to access some options. The keyboard focus does not seem to cause an immediate close like the mouse does (as above).

As an aside, Chromium suffers the same now

It is something mouse related it seems and with how it all works with TWM - which is old, but as said, there was not a problem previously so whats changed in this version of Firefox browser to introduce this 'bug'.

Peace and best wishes to all Habs

how to disable automatic redirecting to another version of the same site

Hi,

right now, my problem is with this site eyerim.com. I am in Hungary, so when I type eyerim.com into the address bar, I get to eyerim.hu instead, with a Hungarian translation of the homepage.

But I did not ask for effing eyerim.hu, with its shitty or maybe non-shitty Hungarian translation. I want to see the original homepage, but if I type the eyerim.com address the hundredth time I still get eyerim.hu.

Now, to be clear, in this specific case I managed to get around the problem by typing eyerim.com/blog, and voilá. But I don't want to have to look for bypasses, I want Firefox to PREVENT any such automatic redirections. How can I do this?


Thanks
