When watching something on Youtube and I click on the coloured download icon, I get to be able to click on the title of the video. A blue 1 appears in the download icon. When I click again, then click on the blue 1 to watch the download. Nothing happens. The window just sits there and states 'downloading', but it does not happen. This happened last year and you managed to fix it; now Youtube seem to have blocked downloading again. Geoffrey D Dean, Australia.

Hi!

Let's start by saying that I love Firefox, that I use it as my primary browser everywhere and I love that is not based on chromium. However, for reasons to me unknown is missing a very important feature (natively at least): tab grouping. This feature is extremely simple to implement and in today life, where in most jobs (I'm a researcher) you have to deal with a tons of tabs opened in your browser, being able to effectively organize them is a must.

My question is: has Firefox the intention to implement (again) this feature? Will this happen soon?

I'm really trying my best to not switch to a competitor browser and I really want to support Firefox and hope that it gains more and more users. But for this to happen it really needs to be on par with time. How come every other popular browser has a very good tab grouping feature and Firefox doesn't?

Please, let me know if there's a chance to see this feature implemented in reasonable times. Sooner or later, you will probably have to do that reagardless.

Wish you the best, A.

For Windows version 10.0.19045 Build 19045 If using Firefox Version 113.0.1 (64-bit) in Windows 10 and in the following state:

 Firefox is open and window is maximized.
 Firefox Full Screen is toggled OFF.
 Windows taskbar setting "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" is toggled ON.

Then the Windows taskbar will not display when the cursor is place at the bottom of the monitor screen. If the Windows taskbar setting "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" is toggled OFF. Then the Windows taskbar will also not display. Changing the ON/OFF state of any other Windows taskbar display setting in any combination does not fix the failure.

So for the last little while, Facebook has been making a complete nuisance of itself on firefox. This isn't a browser problem, because the other tabs I have open work perfectly fine, but FB takes forever to load, and any button I press to interact with it, (like the reload button,) also lags, (but, again, works fine on other tabs,). It doesn't even register links as being clickable for a good minute after loading. The page also seems to reset every time I switch from another tab to it, showing a blank page with a loading symbol. I have tried deleting the entire history, and restarting the browser, and deactivating the adblocker, (the only extension active) and nothing seems to help. Does anybody know why it's doing this, (other than because the company follows the 'if it isn't broke, break it' theory, which we all already knew,) and how to fix it?

I have been using (VIEWING articles in // saving articles TO my) FIREFOX "POCKET" for more than a year.

I have the pocket ICON on my upper toolbar. But ALL that seems to do is allow me to ADD an open page TO Pocket. I have NO clue how to simply **Go t o POCKET** and VIEW any / all my saved items there.

Good God, WHAT is the secret handshake??! ...in trying to figure this out I see numerous things telling me to SIGN IN to pocket ... IF way back when I began using pocket I MADE a USER NAME / Password for it, that info is long forgotten. I HAVE a FIREFOX account ... was sent therewhile supposedly (according to Firefox" HELP") to 'sign in' to my POCKET account. Only took me to an overall FIREFOX account page - wherein NO LONK there referred AT ALL to POCKET.

I 'SAVE' to my pocket (ICON) almost daily. NEVER need any kind of sign in for this. NOW I want to LOOK AT / READ some of these - BUT FIND NOWAY TO GET THERE. ICON omly SAVES a page.

Ridiculous. HOW do I VIEW / SEE / FIND /READ my saved pocket items?

Hello all. Since the update to Version 113.0 I have been getting an error in my Event Viewer which is Event 2 Firefox Default Browser Agent . I am now on Version 113.0.1 and still get this error. Firefox is my default browser. Below is an image of what I see in my Event Viewer and also the full view of the event itself. I seem to not be having any problems with the browser but I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why this is happening or forward to the Devs.

Starting with Firefox 113 (on Debian Linux), every few days Yahoo mail stops working properly: I can read emails but hitting any action of them, like Reply, Move, Delete, does nothing at all.

I need to clear cookies to get this operational again. This doesn't happen on chrome on the same computer.

The only add on I have is an adblocker, disabled for yahoo mail. This problem also happens with enhanced tracker protection turned off.

Hello. My laptop died and according to IT is "gone". My hard disk however can still be accessed. I was able to access my firefox profile data from the old hard disk, and I was able to find the two firefox password files (key4.db and logins.json), as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data. However, when I use the procedure described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416465 to import the passwords on my new firefox on my new laptop, it does not work: firefox tries to look for a csv file, but there is none: I only have the "raw" db and json files, because i never had the opportunity to "export" my pwds as a csv file. Is there a way to import pwds from one version of firefox (the one running on my dead machine) to another copy of firefox (the one running on my new machine), if those pwds have not been previously "exported" as csv files by the "original" firefox/machine? thank you!

I have been using firefox for more than 4 years now. But from about a year, i m facing the issue with the Sudden High CPU usage in Windows task manager.

The task manager has 2 different firefox processes. One being actual instance i am running. and the 2nd being the automatically opened in background.

i have figured out whenever i have active internet connection and my system is on charging the 2nd task automatically starts in background and uses upto 80% of cpu usage. Ending the 2nd task form task manager doesn't affect anything. only the cpu usage drops. Also Closing my firefox instance does nothing to that 2nd task.

I have tried lot of solutions i found on community. Nothing seems to help. problem still persist. I even posted comments on ongoing threads. but no reply from anywhere.

this is the last time i m trying. if i get a solution its good. otherwise i am going to shift to edge. I have no other choice.

Screenshots from multiple dates are attached.
