Any fix for this bug? The basic function of the web browser is to load a webpage and Firefox is failing that. This happens several times a day. This also happens in Troubleshooting mode so no add-ons are responsible. The Webroot anti-virus and Malwarebytes have Firefox.exe allowed.

I click on a link and the webpage never loads. I copy the web address and paste it into a new tab and it loads. I do not have this issue with Chrome or Vivaldi. I currently have Firefox version 106.0 and use Windows

The West Virginia cultural service upgraded their website.

https://archive.wvculture.org/vrr/va_select.aspx

After the upgrade, I and many others cannot view the images in Firefox.

Some other browsers are not affected.

I have gone through the troubleshooting guide but still cannot view the images.

Any help is appreciated. Terry

A little background info: When they upgraded the site there was a great uproar because these images were shared on many, many genealogy sites. The links were killed and the web developers made a change that redirected the old links to the new. I don't know the technical aspect.

Starting some time ago (not sure what update it was), my system buttons turned transparent on my Firefox installation. It happens whenever I use any light (white taskbar background, system pages backgrounds, etc.) Firefox full theme, and there are many tabs in the window (the buttons start to glitch as I open more 'live' tabs, then go completely; empty ones don't seem to count). They are still functional, just transparent. The problem is not specific to my main profile, I have reproduced it on clean profile with only a theme installed (so, no addons are involved). It doesn't happen, though, when I:

  • use any dark theme
  • use a Firefox Color theme
  • activate Troubleshoot Mode (obviously, as the themes themselves are not enabled)

WTF? Any further ideas to investigate?

I've seen nothing that specifically says this can or cannot be done. It makes sense to me, a non-tech person, though. Why -- or how if it's now possible -- can I sync certain files I select between 2 or more computers? For example, I'd like my "Documents" to be the same on my computers. But I see no reference to doing that. Sub-text: IF that were possible, will Firefox automatically sync so that the resulting file is the most recent version (assuming identical file names)? OR, will Firefox bring all individual files if they are different in any way even if they have the same file name?

Thank you.

Deleting Expired Personal Certificates not possible?

Good Day, I'm using Firefox 107.0 . I have two expired personal certificates issued by SAP, a very large Business Application Company. I also have a current recently issued certificate that doesn't expire until Nov. 2023. Trying to connect to the Support site for the Company, I'm informed that my certificate has expired. I expect that's because the certificates are listed in order of oldest to newest, and the expired certificates are hit before the new one, which is likely not checked. I go into Privacy and Security Settings, to the View Certificates option, and delete the two expired certificates, then click OK. I go back to view the certificates, and the deleted certificates are still there. I still cannot connect to the Company site. When is was using MS IE, i was able to delete expired certificates without any issue. How can i safely delete expired Personal Certificates in Firefox, without having to delete many other things that I do not want to have to deal with re-establishing, which would be a significant time sink. Thank you! George P.

Hi,

Firefox will not let me switch between tabs using the mouse.

I can open new tabs but cannot navigate between them.

I can pin tabs and close tabs by right clicking and selecting from the menu but when I left click a tab to select it nothing happens.

It is not my mouse as this is working fine in other apps and navigating between tabs in chrome works fine.

I tried updating to the latest version of firefox (as at 15/11/22) but this has still not resolved it.

I also cannot get into settings or extensions as when I click on those it opens a new tab but I then cannot navigate to it.

Please can someone help as currently it is completely unusable.

Thanks.

I've got a legacy transformer laptop with an integrated wacom-type sensor screen. Despite all shortcomings of it's age, the laptop's got class.

The main web browser installed is Firefox ESR. In tablet mode, control was handled by the Windows - mouse-like drag'n'drop, marking, but with added scrolling gesture by swinging quickly up and down. Using it in the tablet mode is actually very practical.

Recently, after updating from 91 to 101, browser started to interpret the pen as a finger, controls became clumsy and frustrating. The only way of turning finger gestures off, parameter gestures.enable_single_finger_input described in that question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/973974) had no visible effect. Have fallen back to 91esr, but this is obviously just a temporary solution. Is there any way to add force-disable parameter or something?

Does anyone make an effort to survey users before making changes? Some changes are just a bother but others are really imposing costs.

I see the disappearing HOME icon is a recurring problem. So, fine, I've restored the button. But my complicated half-dozen links have also disappeared and I have to reconstruct my HOME pages. Mine are complicated since they are a series of graphs (from Yahoo Finance), each with specific different parameters. It will really take me time to reconstruct this and I really resent that.

Similarly, where on earth did my plug-ins/extensions go? Again, they haven't just disappeared from the toolbar. Once I locate the icon and restore it, I find that they've disappeared from TOOLS > ADD-ONS AND THEMES. I have to go download them again? Why?

Naturally, all of this just happens to land on my plate on a very bad morning. Lesson learned: I'll make a bookmark folder to duplicate what the HOME button should bring up.

What is the point of all this?

Thanks for listening,

Hello! I have a problem with my title bar buttons. No matter which theme I put on, they always have a different color than the rest of the theme (as you can see in the attached image). I tried searching for a solution, but nothing works. I tried troubleshooting, messing with the code (userChrome.css), but it's pointless. Maybe I did something wrong?
