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.

I can connect bluetooth devices to my SurfaceGo and successfully direct audio output to them using Chrome, Edge, or internal sound files. But in Firefox the audio only goes thru the internal speaker no matter which audio output device I select. Is there some setting I need to fix so that Firefox will speak to bluetooth devices?

Amazon Prime Videos will not play on Fire Fox. The message says to update Firefox, but my browser is up to date as of today, 10-24-23. Their customer service can provide no answer. This has been an ongoing problem for several months. I have tried their trouble shooting steps of restarting my system, signing out and re-signing in on Amazon and closing and re-opening Firefox. Allow DRM content is checked on my settings. Thanks.

Since the last Firefox update I have been unable to login to my bank's website. Attached is a screenshot of the message that appears. As a test I tried logging in with Google Chrome and was successful so it is likely something with the last update of Firefox. Note that I am using Windows 7 and do not want to change to a newer version.

I have seen this question "answered" but I am unable to get the "answer". How CAN I REMOVE an OLD EMAIL ADDRESS from autofull? WHY is the "answer" not available? I have changed ALL of my email addresses in "Logins & Passwords" for autofill but somewhere the others are HIDING & still being used by autofill.

WHERE ARE THOSE UNUSED, EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR AUTOFILL HIDING?

I am sick and tired of having to keep changing the email address in online forms as autofill keeps using the old, unavailable email address I no longer have access to. WERE ARE the autofull email addresses HIDING?

WHY can't I remove Email addresses for autofull I can no longer use?

WHERE ARE THOSE AUTOFILL EMAIL ADDRESSES HIDING??????

It is very frustrating to see that this question has been "answered" but the "answer" is not available, there is NO LINK to the "F" "answer"!!!

When I am in 1 window, I have multiple tabs open, but when I hover over the Firefox logo in my taskbar, the tabs appear in different windows that have each tab but not the other tabs from the window I am on. Like every individual tab has its own window. This has never happened to me before, only started happening today.

When I watch fullscreen videos in another browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.) on my Mac the video fills the entire screen. For some reason when doing the same in firefox the video does not reach to fill the entire screen and instead only occupies the middle. I tried screenshotting to illustrate this behavior but the screenshot was restricted to this middle zone as well. It seems like somehow firefox is shrinking the display size when no other browser exhibits the same behavior.

It also seems like if I want I can drag the video window around in fullscreen moving the whole video player around my display. I shouldn't have to drag the thing around to get the video to play right.

So, whenever I open Firefox it will act normally and then after a second close by itself and when I reopen it, it will be in remote mode. I know how to fix this via about:config and do this every time, but I would much prefer a permanent fix, nothing else on Firefox or my computer indicates something else is going on, its just this. I've even at one point uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help.

Dear Firefox Team, good morning.

I hope you are doing well and that you are all healthy.

Guys... while looking for a way to measure the performance of our site, we came across the Core Web Vitals (CWV) some time ago. These are Google KPIs for measuring the user experience on a page (https://web.dev/vitals/#core-web-vitals). Unfortunately, some of the KPIs (like the Largest Contentful Paint or Cumulative Layout Shift) are currently only accessible using Chrome and it's preformance API. That's a pity, because there are also many people using Firefox who visit our site... and it would be interesting to have such KPIs as well.

In an article by Cloudflare (https://developers.cloudflare.com/analytics/web-analytics/understanding-web-analytics/core-web-vitals/) we recently learned that Firefox is also planning to expose the metrics used in the CWV... only the "coming soon" from the article is a bit vague. That's why I'm contacting you to get some more information on that topic. Do you perhaps know whether the topic is planned and will be tackled this year?

Thank you for your attention. Best regards, Carlos

I've always been able to copy & paste text from other places to Whatsapp Web in Firefox Desktop computer before. But starting today, it's not working. It only works when I copy & paste text from Whatsapp Web inside but not from other software like MS office or Slack. It's very frustrating! I wonder if it has something to do with the newest Firefox update. Please fix asap!

When I use the scrollwheel, I prefer the image/spreadsheet table/webpage, whatever, to move when, and only as long as I turn the wheel, and immediatly stop moving as soon as I stop turning the wheel.

But FireFox has some sluggish 'creep', by which I mean that the pages keeps (slowly) moving before it finally stops. I personally find that very annoying. It's like having old and rusty brakes on your car.

I checked about:config, but there are many options regarding scrolling, and none of them makes it clear to me what it does.

Can some kind soul tell me how to give me back full control of my mousewheel? Turn = move Don't turn = don't move

TIA!

I want to get rid of that url bar that pops up on the left bottom of the screen when you hover over a bookmark, a link on a page, a video... anything that leads to another web address. It disappears when you hover over it and changes to the right bottom of the screen. It appears when i'm trying to watch videos on sites when i'm in full screen and refuses to go away. I've tried the chrome folder solution posted here and it doesn't work. I've tried many other solutions online and they don't work either.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1372339

A few of the things that were supposed to be labeled as they were in the solution were not available on my new version of FF but I found the correct folder to post the chrome folder in regardless. The box to open the profile folder was further down and labeled differently than in the instructions posted from a year or more ago here.

I'm using a fresh install of windows 11 and the latest version of Fire Fox 115.0.2 64bit

Thank you in advance.
