I have a problem when I read a specific webpage and firefox jumps to the end of the webpage. This happens with one specific webpage, a Swiss newspaper: call www.nzz.ch - Now, select one of the articles but in the following way: do a right-click on the title of the article and select "open in new tab". (This is important: it does not happen if you left click on the article and open it in the actual tab.) Now you have the article in a new tab, you begin reading it and slowly scroll down using the mouse wheel. But then, with the slightest scroll back (upwards), firefox will jump to the end of the web page. All you can do is go back (ctl+upward arrow) and look for the place where you have been. Once this has happened, firefox will no longer scroll to the end of the page, you can scroll up and down, and everything works fine. But if you close the tab and open this or another article again with right-click, open in new tab, you have the insane effect again. I have no idea how I could analyze this myself and am thankful for help.

If an URL already have many tags or longish tags I can no longer see suggested tags when starting to type tags. Image example illustrates. This URL already have the following tag list:

1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI

Old behavior was if started to type ", spi" it would list suggestions:

Spitfire Spitfire_MkIX Spitfire_MkV Spitfire_MkVI

Easy & clear to select from.

Now it lists all already existing tags before each suggestion:

1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI,Spitfire 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI, Spitfire_MkIX 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI,Spitfire_MkV 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI, Spitfire_MkVI

Suggestions are scrolled right invisible outside the input box.

Who thought this was a good new feature? It adds nothing, I can already see existing tags, why would I want to see them repeated for each new suggested tag (while not actually seeing the suggested new tag)?

How can I turn this *!$&@! off and return to old behavior?

When syncing between two different firefox instances not on the same OS or computer which of them is the syncing from and to?

If I have one instance where I have Firefox on a different computer and another on a completely different computer which of them does Firefox know it's the latest one to sync from?

Not sure why this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1400794 was archived.

Being archived I cannot "check mark" the question to show I too have this problem.

It is a basic problem and a piece of gravel in the shoe of many, I suggest, Firefox users who are developers.

Clearly, there is a need for a UI to navigate inspected content results and the original question author was exactly correct.

This is drip by drip making me want to end my return to Firefox and give up and use Chrome.

Even just an indication such as unarchiving the riginal post and linking to a "Pending to fix" Github issue would be a nice step.

Thank you Mozilla for all you do, and here's hoping this will get looked at.

If you are currently using a normal window then there are ways to open a bookmark or link in a private window. But if you are currently using a private window then how would you open a bookmark or link in a normal window?

I have tried several things including pressing shift+enter or choosing "Open in new Window" from the context menu, but this just opens the bookmark or link in a new private window.

My current method is to copy the address of the bookmark or link then paste it into the address bar of a normal window.

But is there a more direct method of opening bookmarks or links in a normal window, if currently in a private window?

Thanks.

I switched from google/Duckduckgo to Firefox/Duckduckgo because google has no respect for anyone's privacy and their search results have become pretty much useless. Now, I'm getting the same crappy, irrelevant search results in Firefox w/Duckduckgo that I get in google. Has google, in their unquenchable greed and constant quest for power, managed to somehow corrupt Firefox and Duckduckgo so that they can't get intelligent, relevant answers, either?

Hello,

My password saved are deleted every time I close FF. It used to be manageable because Google and other sites didn't require me to fill my passwords (cookies did the trick I suppose) but now I also loose access to gmail and Youtube every time I close FF. It's annoying to have to use 2FA every damn time. And keeping the passwords available.

I've tried every answer I found by looking around :

- tried to start in safe mode - disable hardware acceleration - I have no extensions

FF saves the passwords correctly (at least they appear in the saved password tab) but they are erased every time I restart FF. The cookies aren't automatically deleted (FF remembers my browsing history) but I need to relog into Google.

I getting frustrated.

I have a problem with opening multiple tabs and displaying graphics on pages. I have to verify about 2000 pages and I open 10-20 each time. unfortunately, graphics are not displayed on them - written content and formatting are loaded, but without graphics. When I open pages one at a time, this problem does not occur. When I open 5 pages at once, at least one of them does not have any graphics loaded, the rest have them. How to make graphics load like in Chrome - on all open tabs en masse?

Hello, I used to have Microsoft Teams as a pinned tab (in fact I think it was my first pinned tab), which I no longer need as I now have the Teams app on my computer. I have tried unpinning the Teams tab but whenever I close & reopen Firefox, it reappears - it doesn't show up initially, but will pop up 5-10 seconds after Firefox starts (my other pinned tabs show up straight away) - so I have to close it each time. Not a big issue I know but kinda annoying - any suggestions/solutions?

Hello! I accidentally clicked to restore default setting in the customize toolbar menu, and now all of my tab/address bar/bookmark bar setting and locations are different and I don't like it at all. Previously, the address bar was above the tabs and the full length of the window. Now the tabs are at the top and the address bar is on the same bar as the bookmarks I have saved to the bookmark bar. The address bar goes full length if I remove the bookmark bar but I want to have both on the screen at the same time, on their own bar, as I did before. I have looked through the all of the settings and customize options, and can't find anything that will move my address bar to the top above the tabs, or a way to keep the address bar and bookmark bar open and available separately. Help! Thanks. :)
