Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

I need to use an earlier version of firefox because the "Google Translate In Page" addon was killed by Firefox, and this disabling has LITERALLY caused the continuous death of Covid-19 patients because we can't read about the lifesaving Covid-19 treatments on foreign sites, whose therapies are further ahead of the U.S.

I need to verify that when I load the prior version, it will allow the use of the previous addon once it's added from the addon list.

Please confirm as quickly as humanly possible.... Thank you!

Trying to access https://www.locast.org. but my location is blocked.

I want to add\change\edit a permission for the above website to allow.

I have previously blocked requests for my location in Permissions => Location => Settings. I have now unchecked this. I have deleted the relevant cookies using the sites shield menu. I am unable to get the site to prompt me to allow location nor can I manually add the site to the in Permissions => Location => Settings.

I expect this to be in about:config but no idea where.

How can I correct this?

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I have recently been suffering an issue where the browser becomes unresponsive and consumes massive amounts of hardware resources especially memory, in one case was using over 60 gigabytes of combined physical and virtual memory.

I have tried refreshing with Firefox Refresh, reinstalling and the problem still persists.

I believe it is either one of the addons Tree Style Tabs, but I don't know how to accurately diagnose this though, as sometimes I am able to get to the about:addons and disable one or the other but the problem doesn't go away and in some cases escalates to freezing the whole process.

When the application does this, the currently selected pages still work say I have one open of the ABC news website, I can still scroll up and down, but if I click a link to another article or something, nothing happens, same applies if I try to do anything with the address bar, the history and suggestions pop up but the browser doesn't do anything even after I hit enter.

I'd like to try and find out what the program is doing during this state of unresponsiveness, I left it for a couple of hours last week to see if it could work itself out, turns out it couldn't and the system ran out of Ram and fell over. I'd like to know how to diagnose it, know what it's doing, what it's hung up on and if it's related to an addon, tell the creator about it.

I apologise if this is not the correct way to go about this, I have just run out of patience trying to fix this myself.

I am running Firefox 83.0 under Windows 7 Ultimate: I am a voracious reader of amateur writing and have accounts on several websites. I use Reader View in Firefox due to my less than optimal eye sight. It works perfectly on Literotica.com and Inkitt.com, but on Wattpad .com, Reader View has a difficult time capturing the full text of a page. It will usually capture only blocks of the text and it is extremely difficult to make it capture a desired block of text. Why is this and can I do anything about it? PerryNormal perrynormal@att.net

https://color.firefox.com/

How can I get a Theme or Create my Theme in Menu - Extras? It is difficult to move on with this.

I wish a Theme with the Text in the URL addresses with yellow colour and a dark colour background on the Top where I write the URL addresses.

Something is wrong when I try to follow these steps: > You can activate one of these built-in themes by following these steps:

   Click the menu button, click Addons-icon Extras and select Themes.
   Click Activate next to the desired theme.

It's being difficult to activate the theme I choose.

I do not know what json files are. I have only seen them in the profile. However, whatever their purpose, firefox is no longer processing json files. Instead, it wants to download json.txt when I make some selections.

Example: on Youtube when signed into my account, I select "notification" and instead of the menu opening, the download box appears wanting to download json.txt. This has happened in numerous places - not only youtube, so it looks like a Firefox problem.

Firefox used to process json files and now wants to download them. I tried to configure json in options, and when I select "other" Firefox shows up as a choice it it not possible to select it. I select it, but it does not change the ONLY options for json files which are "always ask" or "save".

This is clearly not something I can fix, not something I caused. I need the features that are not functional, and apparently they have become dysfunctional because they apparently access json files but no longer process them as intended.

Would appreciate knowing what the problem is, if there is an explanation. Is there a fix? Do I need to configure something? Thanks. Mary

I use a 55 inch TV as my computer monitor with Windows7 OS. All of a sudden this week the animations are on every site... Netflix just became unbearable to watch. I have already gone though the steps to turn off all animations in Firefox. I performed these steps...

'''in about:config - type : toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - set it to : false - type : toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll - set it to : false'''

This did NOTHING to turn off the nauseating animations. Every time I scroll a web page I feel motion sickness. Every movie I watch now looks like garbage.

I ALSO have turned off ALL animations in Windows7... so this is really upsetting. Movies I have downloaded seem to play fine in VLC player, but if I use my browser to watch a video, it is now unbearable because of these garbage animations wreaking havoc on my screen.

Guten Abend, ich habe ein Problem beim FireFox-Browser auf einem Amazon Tablett. Es wäre schön, wenn Sie mir Hinweise zur Fehlerbeseitigung geben könnten. Danke. Meine Frau und ich nutzen seit ca. 2 Jahren das oben genannte Tablett 'fire HD 10' von Amazon. Auf dem Tablett haben wir die FireFox App installiert. Sie funktionierte bis gestern ohne Probleme. Als wir das Tablet heute Abend wieder mit FireFox benutzen wollten bekamen wir die Absturz-Anzeige (wie im Bild). Als Erste Massnahme habe ich den Cash der FireFox App gelöscht. Dann das Tablett nach aktueller Software suchen lassen und die Software des Amazone-Tablett anschlissend aktualisiert. Der Fehler blieb. Abschließend habe ich dann noch die FireFox App deinstalliert sowie aktuell aus dem PlayStore von Google runter geladen und installiert. Allerdings bleibt der Fehler weiterhin bestehen.

Good evening, I have a problem with the FireFox browser on an Amazon tablet. It would be nice if you could give me some troubleshooting tips. Thank you. My wife and I have been using the above mentioned tablet fire HD 10 from Amazon for about 2 years. We installed the FireFox app on the tablet. It worked without any problems until yesterday. When we wanted to use the tablet with FireFox again this evening, we got the crash display (as in the picture). As a first measure, I deleted the FireFox app's cash. Then let the tablet search for the latest software and then update the software of the Amazone tablet. The mistake remained. Finally, I uninstalled the FireFox app and downloaded it from the Google PlayStore and installed it. However, the error persists.
