Suddenly my "find in page" or "Ctrl F" function from the Firefox menu doesn't work. I can click on it but nothing happens. I never get a place to type in what I want to find. Did I accidentally change something in my Settings? If so, I can't find what it was.The same function in Chrome still works just fine. Please help. Thank you.

Although I have disabled all relevant "sync" settings in Firefox, the browser is still syncing tabs across my MacBookAir and my iMac.

To make matters worse, tabs in Chrome and Safari sync to Firefox tabs across devices as well. The sync occurs in both directions.

I am not logged into Chrome or my gmail account.

Specs: MacBookAir: early 2015/ OS v. 12.7 (Monterey) iMac: Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 / OS 12.6.8 (Monterey)

Things I've tried:

  • Turning off syncing in Firefox on both devices.
  • Signing out of Firefox from both devices.
  • Disabling "sync open tabs" via Firefox preferences
  • Renaming devices from within Firefox Sync. (The name always reverts to the previous one.)
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Deleting cache from both Firefox and Chrome.
  • Restarting

Images are from toolbar on iMac when Firefox is open on both computers. Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks!

GPG key for signing Firefox Releases

Hello, trying to verify the integrity of firefox-118.0.1.tar.bz2 I realized the GPG key has changed.

The following blog post details the change and shows the new key: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2023/05/11/updated-gpg-key-for-signing-firefox-releases/

But when I download the key using the link provided (which points to keys.openpgp.org) the key I get is different from the key posted on the Mozilla blog page.

What is even more strange, is that the key from keys.openpgp.org declares in the comment that 14F2 6682 D091 6CDD 81E3 7B6D 61B7 B526 D98F 0353 is the fingerprint of the key (the same that is posted on the Mozilla blog) but it can't be because the key different.

So my questions: 1) Why Mozilla is posting a link to a key that is different? 2) Why keys.openpgp.org shows the correct fingerprint with a different key?

And, in the end, which key should I trust and why.

Thanks.

Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

Firefox freezes with every case of opening location choosing window

I've encountered a very weird behavior: when selecting where to save a file or selecting a file to upload, the browser hangs 100% of the time.

Even when I go to about:memory, click Load, the path selection window appears - regardless of whether I select a file or close the window, the browser hangs and the window stops responding. I tried waiting for several hours - to no avail. Only restarting helps. Same with the upload selection window - regardless of whether I selected a file to upload or closed the selection window, the browser hangs. Before freezing permanently, the mouse cursor stops moving, then lags around a bit before recovering.

I tried cleaning download history, cache, recreated profile, restarted without extensions, in safe mode, disabled antivirus - always the same result.

Please advise me, maybe someone has encountered something like this - I really don't want to start using Chrome. My OS is Windows 11. Thanks in advance.

Over the last year I have uninstalled FF removed settings then reinstalled from scratch. Its been over a year now and FF never can pin point where I am at. Today it says I am 1300+ miles from where I am. I really don't want to go back to using Chrome but it appears I will have to as it normally has my exact position. I travel for 6 months of the year and have 3 internet connections shared via an internal WiFi that I use 99% of the time. They are connected via Starlink, GoogleFi (T-Mobile) and AT&T SIMs. I have a SSID with the _nomap suffix and that fixes Chrome but FF NEVER seems to know where I am, no matter how many times I clear the browsing data. I really don't want to go back to Chrome, but I cannot do my work if FF thinks I am somewhere else all the time. Geez, If only there was an addon or extension that would override FF location so I could tell it where I am. I'm in FF Hell. -Bill

Hi, Description: Sometimes when I move my cursour over certain elements on a website, black or white Blocks appear. These Blocks are always rectangular but usually not sqare. Oftentimes the block will have Diagonal lines running up to the top left corner of the Box. The apperance seems to be connected to mouse movement. They pop up and dissapear only when the mouse is moved. And stay when they have appeard and the mouse isn't moved. Esspecially highliting things makes them occur. Example images are provided. Occurance: They are not limited to one website, though they don't seem to appear everywhere. Their occurace seems to be consistent. They are not limited to websites however. White boxes can also appear over highlighted text in the URL, regardless of the website. Example image is attatched The Boxes occur in no other Browser and in no other Programm. They have been there for a while, so it's not the version. Tried Fixes: I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The boxes also appear in Private windows. I used the suggested feature for removing all settings and addons. Interestingly if I run firefox in Troubleshooting mode none of the Boxes appear.

Like I said, I only have these issues in the Firefox browser, so if it is a problem with my system itself I'd love to get your Ideas to what might cause them.

I need to know where I can find the Content Process Limiting Setting in Firefox, it's gone, or is not where it is said to be located. This is the instruction I found.

Its using up to much memory on my already slow processor.

Hello,

Amazon Prime no longer saves my place in TV series I'm watching. If I was 15 minutes in on episode 9 of something, when I came back it would still be in the same place, even months later. Now it doesn't do that anymore, even if I come back a few minutes later.

Amazon says Amazon Prime does not work very well on Firefox, and my issue does work fine on the other browsers, but I don't want to use them if I can avoid it. Firefox works fine for Hulu and Netflix and the others. I don't have any other issues with Firefox other than this one.

Does anyone know anything about this and possibly how to make it work like it used to?

Thank you.

When I highlight text and move my cursor down to the bottom edge of the screen to scroll, it is super slow when going down. However if I do the same and scroll upwards by moving my mouse cursor to the top edge to scroll, it scrolls at a reasonable fast rate. The issue does not fix when I start in safe mode, or in private windows. The issue is exclusive to highlighting text and holding down to scroll. My scroll speed by clicking the scroll bar is normal, and so is using two fingers on my laptop (Asus Zenbook 14) to scroll down.

I don't encounter slow click and drag scrolling on google chrome.

Whenever I try to watch a video or stream (any site) I can watch the video just fine as long as the audio is muted. However, when I unmute the idea, the video pretty much stops (can stutter a little bit) and the audio plays a roughly 5 second loop of when it was unmuted. This happens on all sites, all formats of videos.

I'm an Amazon bookseller and when I click on the New and Used book designations on an Amazon book web page I get a weird page that is incomplete and unusable. I've updated my Firefox, tried different books, and tried using Google where the page displays correctly. I've called Amazon and they said it's a Firefox problem. The page does not display all the books for sale and there is no scroll bar. I've attached a screenshot. I'm using Windows 10.

hello

I downloaded Qwant browser some years ago out of curiosity then took this laptop offline. When I allowed this laptop back online, I noticed Qwant and disabled it, as I am accustomed to DuckDuckGo and no longer feeling curious, just want to get work done. Qwant is showing as disabled (under the Disabled heading, and greyed out).

However, when I use CTRL-N, the new browser window is Qwant, not Firefox, not DuckDuckGo.

I check that Firefox is my default browser and the laptop checks every boot-up that it is the default browser.

Can you help? I know there's a line of code somewhere but don't want to do more than I have -- endlessly search the settings, checking that there is nowhere that allows Qwant to load, let alone preferentially loads it.

Thank you! filterfeeder
