When attempting to connect to https://FIDELITY.COM it continues at "performing a TLS handshake to CFA fidelity.com , but won't connect .

Never had this issue. All my other bookmarks work fine.

Fidelity tech support could not identify a problem on their end. Have had clients experience same problem.

Suggested I try Microsoft Edge browser , which works.

Would prefer to connect with Firefox.

Any help is appreciated.

This must have been designed by someone with SERIOUS brain damage. Every time I use it it shows its glaring deficiencies. Its like whoever designed it never used bookmarks before in their life and never used it after it was done. I use the term "done" very, very loosely. How can people like this get work?

When you add a bookmark a narrow window opens up (of course you can't resize it) but I wonder if I can change its size in about:config? If you have a lot of folders you can only see a tiny bit of them at once. Its just ludicrous.

Another bizarre thing about the Firefox bookmark system is when you click on a bookmark it overrides your last opened tab. Why on earth would any sane person do that? If you want to close it you can close it anytime. Is there something in about:config that can make it work properly?

Maybe there's an extension with a sane bookmark system that doesn't look like it was designed by a brain damaged nutcase?

Maybe its just an autistic thing. Brilliant in a few areas and totally out to lunch in others. Like common sense. Sorry to be so harsh but I cannot comprehend how Mozilla has not fixed this. Maybe they left Earth and are exploring other worlds.

Yeah I know....I need a bookmark program. Its just kind of convenient to have it built into the browser sometimes. Its more seamless. If only this wasn't so bloody awful. And I do mean bloody.  :)

If only I was smarter so I could code myself.....

hello

1) I've been trying to change the console colours for the web developer console using userChrome.css, but I have failed. I want to set the background for console.info text to be light blue while the text color to be bold dark blue font. I would like to have it only in light theme. Also I would like to change the font size of the console for both themes.

2) Is it possible to change the folders of bookmarks to yellow. I read there are SVG. I tried to solution that are meant to change the folders to yellow, but failed. Can someone point me to a dummies guide for a solution.

The first one is the more important issue.

Thank you in advance

Although I have my Browser Privacy / Enhanced Tracking Protctions setting at "STRICT": "Stronger protection but may cause some sites or content to break" and with a "Heads up!" warning that states: "This setting may cause some websites to not display content or work correctly" -- I chose to enact it, anyway, knowing taking this informed risk.

However, on a site that I just visited, I received a message (from clicking on the little duck icon) that stated: "To prevent site breakage, we didn't lock ANY companies from loading tracking requests on this page". Also, "The following third-party domains' request were loaded. If a company's requests are loaded, it can allow them to profile you, though our other web tracking potections still apply."; then listed all of the companies that were allowed to profile/track me, one that included Google. There were 8 different companies, some with more than one address!

What is the point of giving us that option if you aren't going to acknowledge or respect it?

My bank says I need to update my MacBook Air browser to version 107, but the computer says I have version 102.5.0esr (last updated in November of 2022) and says it is up to date. I've checked the automatic updates box in my settings.

So do I manually update to version 107? Is 107 available for MacBook air? (I only ask because I have a 12-year old iMac that IS running version 107)

Thanks in advance for your help. I want to make sure I haven't missed something I was supposed to do.

Framerate drops after update to 107 on machines with Intel integrated graphics

Since the update to Firefox 107.0 (now on 107.0.1) from 106.0.5 on two Intel-based Macs with Intel integrated graphics running Windows 7 (I know...) under Boot Camp, I'm experiencing poor graphics performance in Firefox. I first noticed this when scrolling felt choppy and then subsequently on video playback (YouTube and other sites). Text input and other animations can also feel more laggy or jittery than previously.

This is very similar to what I first experienced when WebRender rolled out to these devices. At the time, I set gfx.webrender.force-disable=true. However, I believe that setting hasn't been heeded for several versions, so I was eventually using WebRender without issue. The release notes for 107 do not suggest that anything related to WebRender or compositing have changed, which makes this particularly baffling.

The amount of stutter is compounded after opening a second Firefox window (regular or Private Browsing).

I have tried Troubleshoot Mode with extensions disabled and disabling hardware acceleration, but the problem occurs in either mode (confirmed with about:support showing "WebRender" or "WebRender (software)" as appropriate).

I enabled gfx.webrender.debug.profiler=true to examine frame rates. Shortly after launching Firefox, frame rates remain around 60 fps and things feel smooth for a bit. However, the frame rate will periodically drop to about 22-31 fps for 5-10 seconds while playing a video or continuous animation without interaction. Viewing Task Manager for all users during this process does not show a notable spike in activity for other processes when the frame rate drops and overall CPU load is nominal.

Opening a second window causes the frame rate for all windows to drop to 30-31 fps maximum, which similarly periodically falls to 12-15 fps for a few seconds. It's clear that the target 60 fps is not maintained when more than one Firefox window is open. I had not checked the reported frame rate with a second window open in prior Firefox versions, so I do not know if this is a change, just that I hadn't observed an apparent degradation in regular use.

The two graphics cards in question for these two machines are: Intel HD Graphics 3000 Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 I believe both are updated with the last OEM (Apple) Boot Camp drivers for this hardware which, granted, are on the old side. I have not yet attempted later drivers directly from Intel, as I hadn't encountered issues until this recent Firefox update. I have not noticed an issue on my other machines running Firefox.

Any suggestions on restoring the graphics performance would be appreciated.
