90.0.2 to 94.0.1 window-update problems

[Edited: Point (1) is now serious. Point (2) can be ignored. I have edited the question title to indicate that it still occurs in version 94.0.1. My latest post in this thread identifies another symptom of the update problem]

I have been automatically updated to 90.0.2 on several machines (most 64-bit Windows 7), but there appear to be problems with the latest version. I can't see evidence that these have already been reported.

1) Window update. When the browser window comes to the fore (top of the z-order), or when resurrecting from a minimized state, it does not redraw the whole window. Usually, half is missing. However, a cursor-move event while over the window triggers a redraw.

2) I have just experienced CAPTCHA issues trying to get into an gov.ie website. Instead of showing me text to enter into the field, it just showed a gray square. However ,the same challenge works OK in Chrome (i.e. it's not a problem with the site itself).

Are these known issues? Is there a way to regress to the previous version?

I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

A very serious bug in all Firefox browsers (it's been around for several years!). If you open multiple tabs (many tabs) in your browser, virtually all settings will not work, e.g. you won't open Options, Menus, various tasks, extensions, won't save your bookmarks, and many other problems. Although the browser opens a page and the Tab works! But everything else is NOT WORKING, even in Safe Mode or Troubleshooting Mode! I've reported this many times: No developer help!

Firefox locks up, in windows task manager, multiple versions running from start up between 5 and 8, also multiples with Thunderbird 3 to 4. never noticed multiples running before, only looked as it started to lock up/very slow just over a week ago. Ran refresh to return to basics, no change, re installed no change. Might not be Firefox/Thunderbird, but what could cause it.

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

I removed the 32 bit version of firefox some time ago and installed the Firefox 64 bit version on my larger secondary drive. Firefox recently updated but the update cause the same version of firefox (version 94.0.1 build 20211103134640) into multiple hard-drives (C & D drives) and different folders. There are now multiple icons in my start menu and the task bar for firefox. They BOTH each fight for the default browser setting as if they were different browsers, and only one will open my previous windows and tabs at startup. I only want firefox to be installed on my secondary drive as my C drive has a much smaller capacity. How can I distinguish and remove one of these conflicting multiple copies of Firefox from my PC without loosing my saved tabs or all of my personal data? Why is firefox installing as 2 different apps, on 2 different hard drives, along the same profile path in two different profile folders as shown with "more troubleshooting information" from the help dropdown menu?

When I forward some links, rather than taking the recipient to the specific YouTube page, the link takes them to the YouTube home page. Other sites I can still forward correctly. I have researched this issue and except for a virus that affected Firefox a few years back, I have found nothing. I have run spyware, malware, and virusware with no change.

Is this a YouTube issue? Another form of Big Tech censorship? Anyone else out there having issues like this?

I finally put FireFox in the garbage can in my iMac (Big Sur 11.5.1) and flushed it and then downloaded a new copy. No difference. I deleted all my cookies per the Firefox suggested repair page. Why would a specific site generate these forward issues? Just for giggles, I tried a forward in Safari (which I never otherwise use) and the links work correctly.

I have been a Firefox supporter from the very beginning and hate to swap browsers. Thank you to all the wonderful code writers and tech support volunteers out there who make this effort possible.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and Firefox latest updates. For some time (including previous versions) I've noticed that some Amazon Prime videos won't play in HD 1080p despite my system supporting HDCP (confirmed by NVIDIA driver). I do not have 4k/UHD HDCP 2 support. I looked at previous complaints here, and tried deleting site data and cookies, and then all cookies for everything, and then refreshed Firefox, but none of this fixed it. I'm able to watch HD 1080p in Edge browser. For reference, I'm playing Fisherman's Friends movie. I've found that Amazon's own content will play in 1080p in Firefox.

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

Home page icon shows up on the toolbar, ONLY ON THE HOME PAGE. Yes, I have Firefox set up to show home page icon for a NEW tab/window, and this works fine. But when I use one of these windows to go to another url, the icon disappears. The purpose of a Home Page is something you can return to easily from any other url. Now, to get back to the Home Page, I HAVE TO CREATE another tab, and then close that previous tab (because I no longer need it).

This is a bug, on a Mac Air M1 laptop on OS11.3.1, running FF 91.3.0esr. It's also an annoyance.
