when I open the game of hearts on my desk top Windows 10, I get a pop up add asking if I want to install new drivers. I ignore it or delete it and start the game; however, before finishing the game it freezes and will not respond to inputs. Also, something similar happens when I play solitare, but there isn't any pop up adds--the response to trying to move the cards is slow and eventually stops all together.

Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

How to automatically select (jump to) tab sent (shared) from another device on Firefox Sync account

Hello,

I use Firefox on a few devices, one of them being Mac connected to a projector. When I share tabs (url) from any device to the Mac, it receives it, loads it on a new tab to the right of the active tab, but it doesn't switch to it automatically. The tab shows a blue dot until I manually click on it.

Is there a way to auto switch the tab that was just received?

This is not related to the "When I Open a Link in a New Tab, Switch to it Immediately" option in preferences, which only changes the behavior of links opened on the same machine, but not the ones sent from another device.

I want to achieve this mainly to automatically play YouTube videos on the projector, but also other pages that I would like to see on the big screen without having to reach the mouse on the mac.

I guess this should be supported natively, but looking at the about:config I couldn't find anything obvious. I only wan to use third party extensions as a last option.

Cheers! Airton

Bill Pay list items 3 3/8 inches wide, otherwise proportional. But SO small it can’t be read! Just started doing this last evening. Called Bill Pay support at BofA. We tried deleting history, cookies, cache, etc. to no avail. They said they had never heard of that problem before. Could it possibly be due to a Firefox update? I have bills to pay!!!

I tried Chrome (I hate Chrome, BTW!) and it works there, but not in Firefox. I've been a Firefox customer for many years and have never had any problem. I was wondering, since every time Microsoft updated my Windows 7, something didn't work anymore. Every time! (Which of course they don't anymore.) HELP!

i had a low resolution lenovo laptop. Thinkpad T540p Intel Core i5 4200M | 8GB | 240GB SSD | 15,6 inch. on which kubuntu installed like a charm and fast and everything worked perfect. yet the resolution was to low for me so now I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T540p Intel Core i7 4810MQ | 16GB | 512GB SSD | 15,6 inch 2560 x 1620. kubuntu installing took ages on this one. but everything went well and works fast. even Firefox, it's faaast! . but the videos on every site are choppy and lagging but not on the chromium browser. videos perfect! everywhere. but there everything else is slow. I tried everything I could find to change Firefox.. restart, reinstall, refresh, about:config, with or without addons, drivers. it's driving my nuts.. it looks like Firefox can't load the videos properly as if it doesn't have enough strength.. weird.. I had the same problem on my little mini samsung laptop. but this laptop should run it all without problems right? . why did the low resolution one run perfect? can anyone help me please..

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

I recently got a new computer and could not download Firefox. I have tried several different ways and keep getting the same results. On Microsoft Edge when I’d click download it would say the page can’t be reached. So, I tried Chrome, and it says that it isn’t connected to Internet. It is only when trying to download Firefox when I encounter this issue.

I have been using a very old version of firefox on my desktop. Now I want to update it, but to somehow keep an installation of a pre-webextension version. IIRC two different installations can't live within the same Windows, so I'm looking for a portable installation of the old version. (Running a second instance of the same installation is no help).

The problem is that I already have an updated portable app on my usb stick. I am wondering, if I save an old, portable firefox (on a separate folder) on the same usb stick that already has a portable firefox installation, will it cause any trouble to either?

I have a corruption of a “search” link in my bookmarks. I would like to learn how to , through software or other means, remove these thousands of bookmarks on the computer and then sync the good copy to the cloud. There is a special file Firefox produces on windows 10 machines that is large - due to this corruption? I would not like to delete the computer file since I would lose the good bookmarks also.
