Hi guys. I see from wading through help pages that this has been an issue before. It's been happening for a couple of weeks now-ish, each time I click a link it opens it on the tab I'm already on (say my emails page) rather than a new tab, so then I can't refer back to my email tab for reference or to copy tracking numbers etc. I've tried in safe mode and no change. I know I can right-click>T, and that works okay, but I have to remember - as it's not normal behaviour. I found a thread to check my "about config" or something, and all seemed set correctly according to the thread - & my limited understanding.

I'm on FF 103.0.2, which is up-to-date and is set to Auto-update, as are all add-ons. I'm running Windows 10 - 21H2 OS build 19044.1889, which is also set to auto-update & reports that it is.

Does anyone know if it's a known issue and being worked on, or if a solution has been found, please? It's driving me insane! Have a great day all. :-)

My Firefox browser was recently changed from version 102.0.1. to 104.0. With the update, the user surface was changed completely. I have tried everything possible to change back to the earlier surface without success. I have tried to change to an earlier version. The user surface was fine, but my profile was lost! If not possible to change back to the earlier user surface, I would have to switch to a different browser after almost 20 years of using Firefox! Thank you for your assistance, Johann

Downloading with Firefox stops repeatedly and is very annoying.

Sometimes first get the following message that Firefox "..nloads\CZ5EEAZM.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of the server. " (see sattach creenshot)


After pressing repeat too many times, the file will finally be downloaded. Sometimes it doesn't work and Firefox crashes.

Question, who recognizes the problem and more importantly how do I solve it?

Until recently my browser accessed all the sites I have used for years and now I cannot access them. As an example the message I receive is "You don't have permission to access "http://booking.jetstar.com/au/en/booking/select-flights" on this server".

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 103.0.1 Private Browsing Mode ('Never Remember History' is set)

What I Did:

-'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.' -When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not reset to zero (It used to clear completely). -The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

Issue Started: The morning (Pacific time) of June 26 (Before then, clicking 'Clear Data' reset the KB to 0 without having to close and reopen the browser first, without having to 'refresh' the page after clearing the cache, and without having to restart the computer first.

Someone stated that PB mode has be left temporarily and the disk cache has to be cleared in 'Regular Mode' by choosing 'Custom Setting For History' and removing the check-mark beside 'Always use Private Browsing mode.

1. I do not see the option Always use Private Browsing mode.' 2. Am I performing these steps before a 'session' is started 'OR' after a session (but before closing the browser?). 3: Do the above steps have to be performed after 'every 'session is ended or only the first time that the 'session' is ended? A:

Under 'Cookies and Site Data,' it states: 'In permanent private browsing mode, cookies and site data will always be cleared when Firefox is closed' but this simply is not true 'unless' I am missing a detail?

All of this unnecessary 'effort' just to clear 100% of the disk cache, after every session, that should be as simple as clicking 'Clear Data.'

HELP!

When you visit a specific page on the site from the theme, after a few seconds, the computer freezes completely. Such that even the mouse stops moving. I checked several times - the problem is connected precisely with Firefox and with this page and nothing else. On the third hang, the firefox.exe file was even deleted and I reinstalled it with the transfer of the profile. Closing this page until it has time to boot has solved the problem of computer freezing. Is this observed in everyone? https://worldoftanks.ru/ru/news/special-offers/wot-12th-anniversary/

I cannot copy and paste from one Google doc into another Google doc in Firefox. But I can in Google Chrome.

I don't know the reason for this. Is it because Google (Chrome & Drive) does not want competition? Is it because this inter-doc copy-and-paste requires code that Mozilla doesn't want to bake into Firefox?

Doing this on windows Firefox running the latest version as of yesterday (Aug 10 2022).

I have 158 pages bookmarked. However, when I click the bookmarks button in the browser, I am only show the last 42 I added. Then, when I go to "manage bookmarks/other bookmarks", I am only shown the first 70 I added. The ones in the middle are missing. Whenever I add a new bookmark, the last bookmark from "other bookmarks" is removed. I really wish there was just a simple list of all bookmarks, or at least some way to access them all. Please help.

Foxfire behaves incorrectly when playing chess on lichess.com. This is a popular chess playing site that hosts online chess games between logged in players. When a game challenge is accepted, it presents a chess board and a clock that should start immediately counting down white's remaining time. Instead, with Foxfire, the clock starts when the first move is made by white.

The above behavior only occurs on Foxfire. On Edge, Google Chromium, and Opera, it works correctly. This is of little significance to most players, but I have observed it for a long time on Foxfire--maybe as long a two years. I have not reported it before because I can easily work around the problem. The workaround is obviously to switch away from Foxfire when playing chess on lichess.com.

Just thought someone there ought to know about this Foxfire abnormality.

The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

I've a Windows 10 computer I'm moving to that I' haven't used much in the past. I previously installed Firefox in the default location. For my own reasons I now want to uninstall Firefox and reinstall in a different folder. I can uninstall just fine; Microsoft and Glary tools don't find a trace of Firefox/Mozilla on the drive. I reboot, download Firefox using Edge and attempt to reinstall Firefox. The reinstall simply states that I'm trying to reinstall, and it'll take a few moments. AT NO TIME do I have a chance to specify WHERE to install/reinstall. How do I reinstall Firefox in a different folder?
