See abstract. Updated to Firefox V105.0 today, and now the cursor starts in the address bar, instead of the search box middle of the page. I have tried that "about:config handoff" fix and it doesn't work for me. I think this is about the third or fourth time we have lost the "cursor starts off in the search box" functionality in the last few years, after a Firefox update. Can you code writers leave it in the search box? Please?

Until a few days ago, the site dailykos.com worked relatively normally. (By normally, I mean that the body of each article, including links and some of the embedded videos/photos were there and could be read. The comments and some of the pictures have never loaded. I thought it might be due to my privacy settings or extensions, but those weren't that important to me, and I never tried to fix that.) Now the site's pages are blank except for the title (see screenshot). The site loads normally in Safari on my iMac, and in the latest version of Firefox on my wife's MacBook Pro. I've compared the settings between her copy of Firefox and mine, and I can't see any significant differences. (We are both still using MacOS Catalina, but plan to upgrade to Monterey very soon.)

Things I've tried that didn't work include restarting both Firefox and my Mac, clearing my cache (it was zero bytes, but I clicked "Clear" anyway), deleting all cookies, including any for Daily Kos, except for a few cookies I need to keep, disabling all my extensions (see photo) and turning off enhanced tracking protection for the site. After these actions, I restarted Firefox, but the DK pages are still empty. An Internet search found only a few articles about similar but not identical problems from several years ago to January 2022. A search of the Mozilla returned zero results.

I should mention that I -think- this started after one of the last two Firefox updates. I'm using version 105.0. I'm fresh out of ideas, and I'd appreciate any help the community or developers can give me. Thank you very much. - Don

On my laptop, I run FDE as my daily driver, with the release version to handle my webmail. I also use portable firefox (from portableapps.com) as a browser to use while at work, from a thumb drive. While using that portable verison, I usually just go to google image search, and a work site that would definitely be secure.

My question: I don't like to update the installation on my thumb drive very often, and occasionally work computers are very slow anyways. So if I were to update it no more often than once a month, which version of firefox would be most secure: Release, Beta, or Nightly?

If doing this is just dumb, then which version gets updated less often--it would be Release, correct?

The hotkey for add-on "600% sound volume" has been broken since the last version of 103. (now 105.0 still not fixed) The hotkey is "Ctrl+Shift+v", which opens the pop-up window of the add-on, and then it allows using arrow key and number to tweak the volume bar. Now all hotkey not working. The arrow keys do not work even if you manually open the pop-up window.

Hi, so yesterday, I updated to the latest version of FireFox (version 105.0). Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary until I decided to watch a few YouTube videos. The best way I can describe this problem is that every time I decide to scroll down to see the description or read a few comments, the entire screen on my laptop goes black regardless if it's on default view or full screen.

Even though that does sound like a crash, the audio still plays, and if I power the computer to sleep mode and log back in, the window of the video automatically scrolls up and everything is back to the way it was (but I did had to restart the laptop once because it also visually broke my mouse pointer). The only way I can get around this problem is to pause whatever video I watch and then scroll down, and no black screen occurs.

I don't know if I'm the only one who has this problem, but I've never had this issue happen in past versions of FireFox. If there is another way to fix this problem, I'll be glad to take anyone's possible suggestions/solutions.

When I click on an article or any link in Outlook, I get an error message that says, Your organization's policies are preventing us from completing this action for you. For more info, please contact your help desk. I'm not an 'organization', just a user and obviously there's no help desk to contact, so I thought I'd reach out to see if someone might have a solution to this problem. I have already made sure that my default programs are set to Firefox for my browser and Outlook for my email and made sure all the defaults are selected. I have also run a full windows scan program which came up without any errors and I have run a registry scan that fixed every identified error. I'm still getting the same error message and the only way for me to open up an article or a link from an email is to 'copy hyperlink', open up a new tab in Firefox and select Paste and Go, which is driving me nuts and wasting a ton of time. I don't know what else to do at this point. I did find a document on the internet that has what it says is a method to resolve this exact error message problem, but the instructions are specific to Internet Explorer, not Firefox. I'm hesitant to find those same tools on Firefox (which is quite possible, though some of them are in different places on Firefox than they are on Internet Explorer). My concern comes with the fact that the final step will 'reset' every setting to it's default condition, so it seemed like a good idea to try to get some expert help before I perform such a drastic action. Also, I'm also making the assumption that if I did do a complete reset, I would be able to restore Firefox back via my most recent System Restore and it would bring back all my customizations, browers add-ons, personal settings, home pages history, cookies, privacy settings, etc. - but I'd like someone to weigh in on this. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

The PC keyboard is still connected (I can enter letters in the puzzle grid) but the mouse is not connected so I cannot scroll the page, cannot bring the pictorial keyboard into view.

Selecting text on any page, there's no visual feedback of what is selected until mouse is released.

There's no feedback that selection starts when mouse button is pressed down, no visual feedback while moving the mouse with the button pressed and only upon releasing the button do I get to see the selection.

Selecting works fine in other browsers (chromium) and was working the other day before I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 (was using 20.04 before) wiping my previous Firefox. So this issue is on an almost vanilla Firefox version 104.0.2.

(Incidentally I can highlight that version number and only that version number in the about-box and I get continuous dynamic feedback of what part of the version number I highlight, but nowhere else in Firefox.)

https://www.lowes.com no text visible; search works if you just type and press enter, but you cannot see any text; this one just started in the past few days (I used it about a week ago w/no issues)

The websites work fine in Microsoft Edge Chromium.

The images attached are from Lowes.com - "FF" meaning Firefox, "EC" meaning Edge Chromium.

I also tried creating a new profile w/o all the security turned on. No luck - same problem.
