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.

Under the Applications section of the General 'Tab' of settings I have the option 'Ask whether to open or save' selected. However when I am on a web page click on a downloadable/openable file(which has a app association) - Firefox doesn't ask me whether to save or open - It does both automatically.

I'm using Win 8.1 FF 115.13

I noticed that websites in my main firefox profile began showing the time in UTC rather than following my timezone.

privacy.resistFingerprinting and privacy.resistFingerprinting.testing.setTZtoUTC are set to false

Other profiles follow my timezone, so I would imagine that this has something to do directly with my current firefox profile.

Thank you

I still have not had any improvement with tab crashes especially on sites containing videos. Lately, every time i go on Facebook and play a video reel, i stop the video and before i can return to my home page, the tab crashes. This browser has gotten worse rather than improving.

I am getting the following error after updating my Firefox installation: XULRunner This profile was last used with a newer version of this application. Please create a new profile.

I have tried creating a new profile and deleting the old ones, restarting Firefox, and even uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it. The error still persists.

How can I get the error to quit popping up every time I open Firefox?

Hi,

just for understanding:

Why can the Firefox source code (view-source) of a website be nearly three times the size compared with Chrome/Opera or when I save the Firefox source code marked and copied and then pasted and saved via an editor?

Example: Firefox 546,6 KiB Chrome/Opera 204,3 KiB via Editor 204,3 KiB (marked and copied Firefox source code)

Best

Hello,

The Radar map fails, (attached) when View Radar click. I am on a TOSHIBA laptop and I do not notice any other graphics issue. I am using Firefox but other Browsers (Chrome etc) do the same. I am always up to date. There are no add-blockers enabled. I have to mention that on other machine Radar is loaded properly. I have this issue for more than 2 years at least. Can you help me with this please? Thanks!

Regards,

Brad

I provide IT support for an 80 year old friend. He uses Windows 7 and Firefox ESR. He has Firefox home as the home page. He had 3 rows of icons showing on Firefox homepage. However today the home page did not show any icons when Firefox was started. Since then about 10 websites have been visited but only 2 show on the home page (Settings Home Shortcuts [for sites saved or visited] is ticked with 3 rows specified. Saved bookmarks are still present as are the saved login credentials.

Any ideas as to why the home page 'lost' all the icons? Why are many of the visited sites not showing on the homepage and how can they be shown? Are there any criteria that apply before a visited website shows on the Firefox homepage?

Thanks for any advice.

There’s right-click + “Forget about this site”, but that deletes the information for the entire second-level domain (say example.org).

When in the process of moving things from *.example.org to *.example.com peu à peu, then I need to be able to individually forget say chat.example.org because it’s already moved to chat.example.com but retain all information for other *.example.org hosts.

I just got my PC back from the shop. It's the best LG Gram laptop they had with Windows 11, and it's 1-yr old. Much on it was corrupted and I'm having to reload many items, one being my Firefox. It wouldn't open up. I did the right-click on my mouse and hit the OPEN selection. Firefox still wouldn't open up. I reloaded Firefox hoping that it would correct whatever may be wrong. No, it still won't open up. I'm reaching you now via TOR. My TOR was also reinstalled, but it is able to open up. Can you think of what I may have done wrong? [I'm unable to check the option-email me when someone answers my thread {this email must be a thread}, but this will be fine.] Please note that I am so NOT tech-savvy, I don't even have any smart/mobile/cell phone. Just a plain old phone. (I should add I'm in my 70's, ill, and in a Nursing Home.) I looked through your troubleshooting sugggestions, but they are too fancy for me to understand. I'm not sure how this works, but I sure do hope you can offer some suggestions as to what I can try. Thanks so very much for your time and consideration of this matter. It's very much appreciated.

First, I fully realize that my OS is prehistoric - beyond ancient. I simply cannot afford to upgrade right now - I'm working on it, though. So, since the last update on ESR, everything seems to be working well, browser-wise, except for a sudden change when using FB. They're problematic, so I thought it was something there, but there are no problems with any of my other devices ( 2 phones & an ipad). For most situations on FB, without going into the whys, I need to use my/a laptop, instead of anything else. It has begun freezing and lagging -sometimes, for 10 minutes - after I start typing! And, the emoji panel takes that long to appear, then longer after hitting one! It's basically unusable. I already contacted them, and as previously mentioned, the laptop is the only problem after the last update, the other devices work well, in terms of speed. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do here to remedy this. I have 9 billion bookmarks and my settings are set in stone, so I can't risk losing any of that by reinstalling, or anything like that. I've been with Firefox since it became available, many years ago, so I'm not willing to sacrifice anything I've collected. All was fine, until this last update. And, I'm working on getting another laptop. Thank you for your time.
