I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

For the past few days, when I try to log on to PlayStation on Firefox, the sign-in page sits on a loading swirl after inputting email. There's a clear memory leak shown on Task Manager. The menu bar's right-click doesn't draw properly. FF can't be closed and needs to be terminated. The only extension I have is uBlock Origin disabled for this site.

This website works on Edge.

Attached is the broken menu from right-clicking the menu bar.

Hi all,

Apple has revised/updated their iCloud web portal. The backspace key no longer registers in the iCloud Calendar app on the web. This is specific to Firefox on Windows - I've tried other web browsers to access iCloud web portal and Chrome's backspace key registers so its not an Apple iCloud problem, just Firefox. Is there a setting or do I have to wait for an update?

Thanks in advance.

I know this is an ongoing issue but it seems like nobody has mentioned it in a while so I figured I would stir it up again. I am fed up with the bookmark double spacing and having to scroll down all of the time.

If nothing else I would think that the Firefox team owes all of its loyal users an explanation as to why they don't seem to want to fix this probem.

Thanks my rant for this year :)

On MacOS, near-zero delay.

Both go through same router.

Nothing changes. When I start Firefox, it simply won't load all tabs. How do I fix this?

Ever since I installed Firefox 123.0, when I execute a search on Yahoo.com, Firefox automatically opens up a new window or tab (depending upon how you have it set up in settings) when it didn't before. When I try this with Firefox using Google.com to search, it does NOT open up a new window/tab. But when I try it with Yahoo.com when using Google Chrome, it does NOT open up a new tab. So it would appear that the behavior is being caused by something in Firefox.

I tried making various changes in settings and Firefox about:config that were recommended in previous questions here, but they did not alter the behavior. I would like the behavior to return to simply performing the search within the same window (I can always scroll back to get the original page). Can anyone help?

I just noticed today that my New Tab Page is now displaying an old set of icons (are they called bookmarks?) It might be associated with the recent update to v121, but I have lost several newer pinned icons. The display today is shown in the attached image, and I have drawn a red diagonal through icons that have not appeared on my New Tab Page for some time. I don't have a list or image of the recent ones that are gone missing.

I'm sure I'll eventually find and replace the ones that I lost, but this is just embarrassing for FF, which I use for just about everything.

If there's a way to revert, I'd like to know.

I just tried to connect to YouTube & get "You're offline. Check your connection." I assume this is due to a DoH connection issue. I can connect in Chrome. My Firefox Mozilla Connection Settings are "Use system proxy settings", though I have set this to "No proxy" in an attempt to fix this - didn't help.

Under Privacy & Security: "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows", "Enable secure DNS using: Increased Protection" - tried "Default Protection" - no help. Using Cloudflare default.

It has been a few months since I tried YouTube - not sure what's up. It works in Firefox on my phone..

I have a frequent problem with dead tabs in FF v121 on Win 10. I tend to have many tabs open (like 15 say) and it sometimes happens that a tab becomes completely unresponsive. It could be a new tab that I open or an existing one that I click on. When this happens I can't do anything. Page reload, clicking on links, entering an address by hand ... nothing happens. The tab is simply dead. The tab is essentially dead. After some time (usually 1-2 minutes) the problem resolves itself. However, it is very annoying as it happens almost every day and sometimes even several times a day. So I am looking for a way to solve, otherwise I will have to move to Brave or some other alternative. Any ideas what could be the problem? I also do not want to restart my browser several times a day as that logs me out of all websites I use including Whatsapp (I delete cookies when closing FF).

Hi. Is there anyone having experienced similar phenomena?

1) Firefox stops showing Gmail correctly after a few days. Immediately after starting Firefox, I can log-in and open Gmail.com correctly. But after a few days keeping opening Gmail on Firefox, Gmail.com shows error messages regarding Cookie (please see the attached screenshot). If I do "Try clearing the startup cache" from trouble shooting information tab, Firefox shows Gmail correctly again, but after a few days the same issue happens again.

2) Fire fox cannot log-in on Outlook.live.com. As title says, I cannot log-in outlook live. Whenever I try to log-in from Outlook log-in page, Firefox shows log-in page again. This issue isn't resolved by inactivating "Enhanced tracking protection".

Both of them started to happen since the update around the end of 2023, I think. (On the other hand, Chrome works on both websites correctly)

If you have some information, it might help me. Thanks in advance.

I recently sent a lot of tabs from my phone to my computer. However, when I started Firefox on my computer, since Firefox tried to load the content of all sent tabs immediately instead loading them lazily (which I think probably should be the default behavior), it took a very long time for Firefox to display even the tab that was currently selected, and I therefore decided to kill Firefox and reopen it, in the hope that all new tabs would load lazily. Instead, when I reopened Firefox, none of the new tabs where there anymore; it was as if they had never been sent. I would like to get them back, but I have no idea how to. Does anyone know if that is possible and, if so, how?
