If I "Show All History", it seems to have everything there, including recent visits, however, any sites I've visited in the past several months won't show up in the address bar, only older sites I'd visited last year.

It seems like the newer sites are getting saved in history, but not indexed for the search bar. How can I fix this?

I have Firefox set to ask me where to download files that I want to download. It works for normal download links, but when I'm using my credit card company site's PDF viewer to look at a statement and I click on the download icon or link in the upper-left, it simply downloads the PDF (to my chosen "Save files to" folder in Settings). Is there a current way to change this behavior? Is this something that the website's code determines, overriding my Firefox setting?

This happens with multiple sites, so it is a Firefox BUG issue.

  1. 1 - When I go to login at "office.com/setup" I try to set up a new account because I don't recall my login.
  2. 2 - I type in my login name, example: "email@domain.com"
  3. 3 - Surprisingly it says choose another email, that one is in use.
  4. 4 - SO, I go back out and try again only THIS time I try logging in with my email because it is ME, not a new person
  5. 5 - Then it sends me to a NEW window to change my pwd.

I enter NEW pwd twice. It sends me back to the login page, I enter my new info and it sends me back to enter my NEWER password twice again. I fall for it and enter ANOTHER NEW PWD.

  1. 6 - It sends me back out to login AGAIN, then it asks me to enter my NEW password twice again.
  2. 7 - repeat #6 indefinitely

This has happened to me at my bank and Microsoft office download. These two companies are NOT related. But I am using Firefox both times. SUGGESTIONS??? My bank locked me out for too many attempts to get in. On and ON and ON and ON.

Can someone please alleviate my sudden sudden onset of paranoia and tell me that this is what I suspect it is? That it's just your standard dev tools any user would have, and that a company could configure in deployment to work phones. I exceeded my IT tech talk comfort-level about 32 words ago, and now I'm faking it. I'll try to project confidence.

I don't believe I've ever used InTune on any personal device, but I have on work phones in the past. I mention InTune only because the last time I did use it to load company apps onto a personal phone was in 2016, and it would feel pretty creepy if this had managed to migrate across several years and several organizations to land on my new phone. And, to be clear, I really didn't get uncomfortable until I saw the apps under Flagfox, with an IP tracker, etc. I have a couple exes who have psycho exes; the kind who manipulate their child into putting a keylogger on their ex-wife's machines.

Screenshots in order of rising alarm and intensity of goosebumps.

Thanks- Dave.

LoL... As soon as I hit Share Data, I see those apps bringing up my data to help you troubleshoot, thereby answering my question, but I'll post it anyway. Hopefully, someone gets a laugh out of it.

Hello, can you add better support playback on .mp4 videos? Seems with Firefox it's a hit-and-miss with some .mp4 videos that will play and some that will just show "No video with supported format and MIME type found".

All other browsers will play .mp4 videos without an issue but Firefox won't.

If you can provide better .mp4 playback support that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Here's one of those videos for an example: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Fv6SdftiCXeYPQOdF17H2JNpwjMu9P7q


Pretty much a URL string like example.com/videosample.mp4

Similar issue to the other posters. Firefox doesn't support streaming from amazon, netflix, or disney+. I have windows 10, a PC, an updated version of the browser, DRM content is allowed, and my widevine plugin has been updated as of today (12/10/23). Disabling all of my extensions did nothing to help. I can stream on apps and other browsers. Please work on a fix soon, or let us know what to do. Thanks.

Currently, the width of the browser window is 958px, but why is there a left-right scroll on the YouTube page and a margin remains. I can't even erase it from the developer tool, is there any way to get rid of it? The scroll moves every time I pass YouTube time, and it's so uncomfortable.

Hi,

Ever since installing the latest Firefox update I can no longer access Microsoft Outlook - email. When I try I get the following in the search bar https://outlook.live.com/mail/0/. Then nothing

I can access my Onedrive account, no problem, but when I try to get to the email part I get the same search bar response. Then nothing.

Using MS Edge, no problem - all works fine.

I have cleared all temp i/net files, cookies etc

Any (simple!) ideas gratefully received

Thanks -

Jim

I have been using Simple Tab Groups (STG) for a long time now. I am curious if putting tabs into groups saves any resources, i.e. is only the open group using resources (CUP/RAM), or is STG purely organizational in that all the tabs still use the same amount of resources as if they weren't grouped? If it is the latter, do you know of an add-on that would save resources? Thanks

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11 and find that I, inadvertently close Firefox with 16-20 open tabs. Most of the time when I reopen FF, the tabs are still there, as expected. Sometimes, the browser opens with just a new home page and the pinned and other tabs have closed. I can sometimes see the 16ish tabs in history and reopen them. More recently, I find that they are not in history as a number of tabs so I have to set them up again. This rarely happened on my old PC and if it did I would have bookmarked a group of open tabs that I used regularly.

The failsafe FF General setting is as follows: Startup, Open previous windows and tabs.

I don't know how I can stop losing my open Tabs but if I was able to bookmark all the open tabs to be used in case of a problem I would feel more secure.

How do I bookmark ALL or several my open tabs?
