Lately for the last 3ish days my YouTube connection speed on Firefox and only Firefox has been terribly slow. So slow that it can't even watch normal HD content. But not always, sometimes it does work at normal internet speeds which is so weird. I have around 500 Mbps download speed internet so I know it's not the issue. The picture with the slow download speed is on Firefox and the fast/normal download speed is on Chrome. Sometimes in a private window Firefox runs at normal speed but not always, I don't think it's an extension issue.

Hello. I can't copy and paste in Figma in Firefox whatsoever, both plain text and images. Tried doing it in Vivaldi and that browser showed a dialog prompt asking whether or not I want to allow the page to access the clipboard. I granted the permission and it's working there now. Can I do the same in Firefox somehow?

Hello! For some reason I can't add separate icons for extension quick menus to the address bar area and am only able to add the extensions "master" button which shows a list of extensions without going to the settings page. I've tried to go to customize toolbar to add the extension icons to the bar but none of them show up, and I know for a fact that the extensions have icons, I've added them to the bar on other computers.

I use multiple Firefox profiles. I would like an EASY way to see the name of the Firefox profile somewhere on the screen. The attached image shows a theme I created which shows the name of the profile on the menu bar. I forgot exactly how I did it, but it involved typing this in a Word document, taking a screenshot and turning it into a jpeg, crop the image, upload it as a theme, then test it. Repeated several times until I got it to work.

I don't need or want fancy graphics here. I just need the name of the Firefox profile to appear somewhere in the window. In my fantasy world, there would be an option to include this name in the window Title bar.

I have a (quite old) Iomega 2 NAS in my local network. I have to connect to the admin page to change some settings, but FF responds with SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION, with no option to bypass.

It's my own NAS, in my own local network. How can I bypass this (in this case stupid) restriction? I know it's safe, I know no harm can be done, still I can't get to this page.

After the Firefox update to 114.0.2 on my WIndows 10 desktop computer, the display of the Google Voice website became all garbled and vertical scrolling stopped working, making it impossible to read new next messages. My laptop, which has been turned off and has not taken the update, is still running the previous version and does not have the problem. I'm wondering if others have had the same issue.

i've tried toggling media.hardwaremediakeys off and pressing the media keys to no avail, they don't seem to have any effect when it's enabled or disabled. the keys work on other applications like VLC media player, though! and I can see that the media is being detected from firefox, too, as it appears in media player widgets i have on my plasma desktop. it seems to be only the physical keys that aren't working, because i can press buttons on the widgets to control media playing in firefox.

I am using Firefox 114.0.2 address bar only, no search bar. I do not remember when it was happened, but today when I want to copy and paste page address I found out that address bar did not display the page address as previous version, just display the words I searched as a search bar (if the search bar is enabled, and typed in search bar then push enter, address bar will display address of search result page, and search bar will keep displaying the words in it). I attached my screenshot below. Using another tab and "switch to tab" feature by Firefox, I found out the page address. In my screenshot, I typed "test" and using Google to search (I also tried Bing, Wikipedia and more and all of them have the same problem with their owned link) and the page address should be "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=test" but even I paste this link into the address bar, it will only display "test" like the pic. I think it is a trim feature but I do not which preference I should edit in about:config. I have set "browser.urlbar.trimURLs" to false for displaying http and www, but it is not work this time.

Hello and thank you all in advance for giving your time to help us!

I run Firefox 114.0.1 on an Apple Mac Mini running Monterey 12.6.6.

Under the "Other Bookmarks" heading in the Library, I keep quite a lot of folders dividing my bookmarks into the various subjects they relate to and some of those folders are subdivided into subfolders.

One of my "simple" folders is called "PENDING" where i store stuff to look at when I have time. Last week I noticed that folder was missing! There's no other explanation than I stupidly deleted it without knowing, and it contained a lot of stuff!

I read up on restoring bookmarks from backup but

a) I only need this one folder and b) I don't want to overwrite all the bookmarks I've added in the past weeks.

Even if I could get the bookmarks from that one folder in a plain text file that I could read, I've no problem doing a bit of work, pasting each one into Google and re-acquiring it as a bookmark.

Any advice will be deeply appreciated!

Many thanks and very kind wishes,

Jim

Hi - Here's my problem. I have a folder in my bookmarks titled Current Bookmarks. It contains both subfolders and bookmarks.

When I go to Manage Bookmarks, select that folder, and use the Views/Sort/Sort by Name.A-Z sort order, the subfolders aren't shown in alpha order. Any new subfolders I create end up at the bottom, listed after the page bookmarks.

Is there any way to get all the subfolders to sort properly?

Thanks for your help!

I tried to log in to a website that requires access to my location. I'm using Firefox 114.02 on an iMac running Monterey 12.6.7. I was able to get in to Firefox's Location settings and now have the website listed with "Allow" noted. This was not enough, and for some time I didn't understand why. Then I discovered the Mac's System Preferences' Security and Privacy section, where Location Services are one category under Privacy. Selecting Location Services brings up a list of apps that are allowed to provide location information. For some reason, other browsers are on the list and can be turned on or off, but Firefox is not on the list of apps that can be selected as permitted. Am I missing something here? I can't find any way to add apps to the list so that they can actually be selected. Any advice?

I'm unable to verify my Mac to log into my Chase bank account, since I last cleaned out my cookies. When I enter my verification code and password, the fields revert to blank rather than submitting. I've cleaned my cache and cookies, restarted my browser, spoken to Chase reps... but it seems the issue is the browser. Firefox is the only browser I have this problem with.

It was suggested to me that Total Cookie Protection is not allowing Chase to verify, but I toggled off Enhanced Tracking Protection on the site, as well as adding exceptions as many of Chase's secure servers as I've seen (the exceptions in the attached screenshot go way past 7...), and I still can't verify and log in.
