Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

I am using FF on my android and one of very features is Reading Mode in which I can save article for reading later. I there any way that I can access that Reading List saved on my desktop FF. I do not want to use bookmarks as those articles are formatted for reading only scrapping all other elements. Or is there any addon that does the same as Reading Mode in desktop FF?

I downloaded something one day then I went on Firefox. I was able to go on Google without a problem, but when I went on other pages, it took awhile to load then it said Problem Loading Page. It happened repeatedly. Then, I became AFK for around 5-10 minutes and got blue screened to death. Is there any resolution to that?

I use firetox to browse youtube, FB, and some blog. But, when I use for a while time, I felt my PC slow down, and check task manager, it shows that Superfetch is using my disk to release some memory for Firefox, and my Firefix use 17% of CPU and about 5G memory in one process(there are more than one process), it almost use 99% memory I have, and suddenly the usage goes down to hundreds of megabyte.

I have tried disable addons, refresh Firefox.

Firefox is up to date P.S. It is hard to open about:memory because I will get stuck when it happened.

Sync doesn't work, No spinning icon, No sync log even !

My Firefox sync worked on Windows (Win 7) last night, But I was trying to make it work on Linux (Ubuntu Mate) and Android (5.1.1) for hours and nothing works. Windows and Linux are both on same Laptop. I tried Removing config folder, Deleting my Firefox account and Recreating it a dozen times but still doesn't work. Windows did fine (At least the last time I tried it, which was last night !), But I was busy trying to make it work on Linux and Android since then. It acts different on both : I'm really confused because this was working before. Yesterday I decided to Reinstall my Operating Systems and it happened after I did so. I only Reinstalled my Linux and Windows so if there's anything wrong with Operating Systems, It should work on Android ! All my Firefox versions are the Latest (49.0 until today), So there shouldn't be an Old version bug or something !

Linux : When I log into my account it asks for EMail verification and when I verify my Email (Either on the same browser or on my Android browser), Firefox on Linux says "Verification complete, Sync will begin momentarily" but the Top-Right menu where I can sync Manually is still waiting for Sync. After I Restart Firefox, manual Sync icon appears, But when I click on the Icon, Literally 'Nothing' happens. The icon won't start Spinning (As it should normally do !). I even checked about:sync-log, There's nothing there (Both with (true) and without (false) logOnSuccess config).

Android : When I log into my account and verify my EMail everything works fine but nothing syncs. So I try the Manual Sync button and when I push it Firefox starts syncing but then No matter how long I wait, It won't sync and if I get out of Firefox even momentarily and return the "Syncing ..." is turned to Sync button again with "Last sync : never".


What I'm suspicious towards is Firefox boycotting Iran (Where I live), But I never saw that before ! I mean Firefox believes in free software movement, Yeah ? Unless it's servers are located in USA and they are forcing them to do so, Which I don't know about ? Does anyone know ?


By the way, if you need any more information to solve this problem, I'm pleased to give.

Recently, whenever I try to save any downloaded file via SaveAs, the keyboard generates random characters when pressing the keys.

For example, I can press the "a" key ten times in a row and the filename could end up "a4vhg67hu1".

I have tried fully uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Firefox and NOT copying my profile back over. So, on a fresh install it still has the same filename issue with the keyboard.

Nowhere else on my system does this nonsense happen, only on Firefox.

I have Win 10 64-bit v1903

Thank you,

Bill

I am using what I am guessing is a new version of sync because I am only using my email and a password to sign in in FF 29 on OS 10.9. That process sounds similar to before, but there is nowhere to enter a device code for other devices now. What am I missing here? It just acts like I would sign into another device and it would be done, similar to Chrome. I originally stopped using FF because my tabs would never sync properly across the 2 devices, but would like to come back to FF.
