YouTube all of a sudden started to slow down and only be able to load videos fast enough in 360p resolution, I tried watching YouTube on Microsoft edge and YouTube handled 1080p easily there, I have cleared the cash and made sure my Firefox and Windows are up to date and still the issue persists.

this only seams to occur on YouTube as amazon prime and speed test works without issues

Firefox has stopped printing webpages. I have done all the processes suggested on help and user pages. To be clear: - Same webpages print on my computer via Edge -All other programs print fine to any of my 3 printers on my home network and my printer at work. -There are no Error messages, I get the print preview, and I can alter any of the parameters there, I click Print and it closes the window, as it used to but it just never turns up at the printer. -I have tried the application menu, the Menu Bar (Filr, Print) and Ctrl P: All exactly the same. -I have removed and reinstalled ALL of my printers. My wife's computer has the exact same version of Firefox and has no problems whatsoever. Any thoughts, please?

The way New Tab works seems to have changed: The options are now "Firefox Home" or "blank page." Google is my home page and I want it to keep it as the New Tab default too. I've been looking on all the Mozilla help topics related to this, and they don't make sense to me. Please tell me how to do this. Thank you.

Ark extracted Version 119 files into /home/Downloads/Firefox/Firefox. I tried ./update from the BASH command line, but didn't know which argument(s) to add to that command. I'm hoping to update Firefox 78.14 ESR to a recent version, whether ESR or not. Thanks for your help.

Just downloaded Firefox a day ago; since a friend told me that its better than Edge. It seemed fine at first and then went and looked at task manager. It's using way more memory than Edge. Firefox has 19 separate tasks running totaling to ~1,500 MB. I need to know what I can do to lower it. My friend made it sound like Firefox was way less memory intensive. I don't even keep 10 tabs open at a time. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, sometimes firefox seems like it is working fine, other times certain sites like youtube, duckduckgo and spotify will not load, while others will.

I've gone through and done everything the help articles suggest, nothing happens - then a few days later everything's fine. It's gone on like this for a few months. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks -alex

I recently purchased a new laptop and am now using Windows 11 instead of 10. Every time (2 months now) I sign into my online banking, I am required to do 2 step authentication as I get a message from Firefox saying I am signing in from a new device. I tried signing in from Microsoft Edge and after getting the 2 step authentication the first time, it recognized the device the 2nd time. I also deleted all the cookies and cache and that did not resolve the issue either. It's apparent it's an issue with Firefox. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I am a single user of Firefox 123.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 11 desktop, Win 11 laptop, and Android phone. If I use Profile Manager to delete both of the the Profiles from my desktop ("default" and "default-release"), will that have any effect on my laptop or phone? Specifically, will I lose my passwords and bookmarks on all devices, or just the desktop?

Also, can I delete one of my two profiles? If so, which one? When I navigate to Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see four folders:

 lamrm8zp.default-release,  2/26/2024
 gqrogfwy.default,  2/24/2024
 06m8lkgu.default-release,  9/21/2023

As of a few days ago my login to my bank's website is not working. I can login, but the main page which should display accounts, etc. only displays the top half of the site, but not the lower half that should display the account information. I tried chrome, and that works fine. But I was wondering why FireFox is not displaying the website. I've been in contact with my bank and their I.T. department. And they claim there have been no changes or glitches, and their website should work with all majore browsers, including F.F. I do have a password manager, but I disabled that for the bank website. I've cleared cache numerous times. Rebooted, etc. I know there was a Microsoft Windows update a few days ago. In fact they sent 2 updates almost back to back. Which is unusual. I understand there have been cyber attacks recently. Don't know if that's related. Any ideas on how to get F.F. working on my bank's website? Thanks

I had to Restart/Refresh Firefox because I lost my dropdown menus and then the Google Search bar in the right-hand corner disappeared. Somehow I got it to reappear but it's too small. I followed steps in several different posts and can't get Google Search Bar to widen. 1. I placed the mouse pointer between the search bar and the address bar and nothing happened. 2. The following didn't work for me because I can't find the “Use Small Icons” box: "Click the “View” tab on the program menu and choose “Toolbars.” Select “Customize” from the fly-out menu and a “Customize” toolbar screen loads. Deselect the “Use Small Icons” box and click “Done” to enlarge the icons on the Firefox toolbar." I attached a screenshot of what FF Browser looks like.
