Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

Hello, I am using Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on windows 11 Pro

I am unable to search through tags in firefox address bar as explained here in this documentation https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox

with that said, the problem is only with "+ tagname" not working, as I am able to filter through bookmarks using "* bookmark" and history and tabs. However, for tag search with "+", firefox doesn't work.

Kindly help,

Here is some additional information I collected based on other similar issues that might help.

Not, sure if the search byTag function is removed from Firefox or not ??

Firefox not responding when I open the mobile hotspot on my laptop. I'm not sure if the problem is the program itself or windows or my laptop, but chrome seems to be working fine when I open hotspot, so I thought Firefox has something to do about it?

For more context, I don't have wifi connection in my new apartment, but I do have ethernet cable connection. That's why when I do need wifi for my phone I just open the mobile hotspot in my laptop. When I do, Firefox suddenly crashes/not responding and I have to close it. Same thing happens with discord, but I only lose connection, it doesn't crash. Sure I can use chrome, but all my bookmarks are all in firefox.

This only happened recently, June 2022. I didn't have any problem the month before, I was able to use hotspot while using Firefox at the same time.

Anyone have any idea whats the problem and/or how to fix? Thanks.

When I open a pdf document from a website online, all colours turn violet. The original colour is just shown on the miniature view on the left side. Every time I open the browser again, there different pages shown with the original colour, but when I click on them they stay violet. When I download the document, it has the correct colour.

I have tried to change the colour setting for designs with high contrast, but there is no difference.

Dear Mozilla Community,

Our company use a web application whiches we can connect to customer servers via RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). The web application uses Spark Gateway. The problem is that if we use the web application with Firefox, we can't use clipboard function.

The error codes in the browser console:

Uncaught DOMException: A network error occurred.

  httpGet https://application.ourcompany.com/hosts/gateway/html/hi5core_min.js:68
  getClipData https://application.ourcompany.com/hosts/gateway/html/rdp_min.js:146
  onCopy https://application.ourcompany.com/hosts/gateway/html/surface_min.js:120

Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at https://application.ourcompany.com:8384/CLIP?s=ca5311bl-d6bs-67f1c-w501-13dwk0ca54c1&t=2676589901112&type=copy (“connect-src”).

If we use the application with different browser (like Edge or Chrome), we can enable the clipboard on the browser. If we enable the clipboard access for the site (https://application.ourcompany.com), the copy/paste function works well. The problem is that we cannot find enable clipboard feature in Firefox.

My quiestion is, how can we enable the clipboard in Firefox for our (webapplication) site?

Thank you so much for the help!

Best Regards Gabor

I have tried the solutions given in: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1080255 and nothing seemed to work. Is there another way to make sure that popup windows cannot hide the toolbar and show tabs?

Various website that contain dynamic content are not being rendered by Firefox to display that content. This is happening with websites that provide transportation information and ticketing, including Amtrak and Peter Pan Bus Lines . It is also happening with a genealogical website, FamilyTreeDNA, on pages that should be displaying family tree information. Illustrations of two pages are attached. I have been able to access the information by using Opera on this same computer and operating system, and by using the same version of Firefox installed on a different computer with different operating system. I am not sufficiently proficient with website development to know or understand what type of dynamic content is being generated by these websites, or how Firefox interprets the content. My suspicion is that some Firefox setting has been enabled or disabled, but I do not know which one it would be.

Updated Firefox to 102.0 Youtube TV stopped working. (Macbook user) I am using the web version of Youtube TV through Firefox. Youtube TV starts, allows me to select channels but then i get the never ending spinning wheel. I have disabled ad blockers, cleared the cache. Restarted Firefox, Restarted Macbook Pro. Restarted router and modem. Youtube TV is playing fine using Safari which uses the same ad blocking software.

My question: What have I overlooked? Youtube TV was working fine prior to the Firefox 102.0 update.

Hi guys. I'm on a Lenovo laptop, using Windows 11. Was NOT experiencing this issue (or any other issues) till today. That is, I've been able to download PDFs attached to Yahoo email for years, including recently (till today).

Trying to get Firefox to be DEFAULT instead of MS Edge, I changed some 'Apps associated with File Types', selecting Firefox as default for all file types that seemed appropriate, BUT, this issue then began.

Feeling I went too far, and should go step at a time, I reset All File Type settings back to default (MS recommended settings). Still can't open attached PDFs. I tried an Excel attachment and it opened fine.

Error I get is: "Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, dl-mail.ymail.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window."

The emails I used to recreate the error, were sending an email to myself, and attaching a PDF.

Other things I tried: I used Firefox with gmail email and the PDF attachment downloaded fine. I used MS Edge with Yahoo email and PDF attachment downloaded fine. Also, btw, CAN view a PDF attachment with Yahoo email. Just now download.

I CAN "open it in a new window" as the error suggests, than print to PDF, but don't want to live the rest of my life doing that.

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered!!

I am testing react applications which draws large number of nodes on Canvas through a flowchart library called cytoscape cytoscape. As the number of node gets big, the rendering slows down. This is expected due to performance limitation of the browser. However, there is an unexpected error: the browser breaks with "NS_ERROR_FAILURE" whenever we zoom-in too close to the graph that is drawn.

As the website breaks with this error, the graph disappears and the user experience is compromised. I want to know if there is a way to prevent this error from happening. Slow rendering is not a critical issue but this breakage is a critical problem for us. Let me know if you know the workaround or you need more context about this issue.

Here is the error message. I attached what the graph looks like.
