Why is Firefox limiting my file name to 3-5 characters instead of the full name as the original document? My Gmail Workspace account is a business account so I need to retain proper naming conventions and original names for files, but Firefox seems to be shortening the file names, and I'm having to completely rename. I can't find any information on how to override this if it's a setting or if anyone else is having the same problem.

I am running Firefox 103.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.4.

Thanks in advance.

Recently Firefox started "crashing." It would be running just fine, and then websites would just stop loading. If I clicked a link or searched for something, it would be stuck loading until I restarted Firefox. I tried restarting my computer as well, but that didn't work either, as the issue just came back within a few hours.

Sooo I went to google to search for answers. I got to a forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/881250) that seemed promising, and edited my network.http.max-connections value from 900 to 48, as the chosen answer suggested. I figured if it didn't work, I could always just change it back.

How wrong I was.

Not only did it not work, it prevented me from doing anything. Now when I open Firefox, nothing loads. I can see the toolbar, search bar, and my bookmarks, but the actual screen is blank. No widgets with my frequently visited sites and some news stories, no homepage, just blankness. When I enter a url or do a random search or even try to open about:config, nothing happens. It doesn't even show a loading icon.

I attempted to refresh Firefox, but it got stuck in the loading stage, which I attributed to my already breaking it somehow. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But no dice. It's still entirely unresponsive.

Any help would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm largely computer illiterate!

I'm on Firefox 103.0.2 64 bit on Windows 10. For the last few months when I play a video of any format that I received as an attachment in Yahoo mail everything works as it should until I play the video. After the video is played from the downloaded file Yahoo mail closes. It always happens this way. I first thought it was Yahoo mail but I have another tab with Edge and Yahoo mail on that browser. It doesn't happen when I use Edge to download the video and play it. I use the same player, VLC, to play the video on both browsers. It has worked fine for years.

I am a big fan of Firefox and have used it as long as it has been out. I have convinced all my friends and relatives to use it as well.

I have had serious problems with crashes; firefox even crashed in safe mode. Tonight, I was on Facebook. I got up and went to the kitchen and when I came back, Firefox was not present so I clicked the icon and a new tab opened up; all my previous tabs were gone. I went to "about:crashes" to submit a report for tonight but this didn't show in the reports. I really don't know what to do about the continuing crashes of Firefox?

//Firefox 103.0.1; Linux 5.10; Debian 11.4.0; xserver-xorg 1:7.7; Nvidia 515.57 driver// After clicking on ->Web Browsing -> Firefox there is NO visible response for 26 seconds... then a normal application window opens and Firefox appears to be operating normally. Opening via command line gives the following "error/information" message(s): glxtest: VA-API test failed, failed to initialize VAAPI connection. For the TWENTY-SIX seconds(!) Firefox is apparently trying to connect to a service that is not available. Is there something in "Settings" or in "about:config" that I can do to skip the "glxtest" and/or other glx VAAPI related configuration options? Or, alternatively, am I missing something in the X-window configuration or another library package that is necessary to support the VA-API feature? The Nvidia driver indicates it is providing "GLX server" version 1.4 . [Troubleshooting information / Share Data attached]

Loading regular pages like HomeDepot or Wellsfargo are very slow. Can take 30 sec. Videos from CNN or Youtube can take 1 min top load if at all. I have gigabit internet and pages load withing 2 sec on Microsoft Edge. I have tried complete removal and reinstallation of Firefox. I have default theme and no extensions installed. I have tried turning off Norton 360 firewall and antivirus, starting Firefox in safe mode, starting Windows 10 in safemode. Nothing helps. Have not only scanned computer with Norton but also with Malwarebytes and found no adware/ viruses. HTML5 seems to be working fine according to a diagnostic page I visited.
