I've encountered a very weird behavior: when selecting where to save a file or selecting a file to upload, the browser hangs 100% of the time.

Even when I go to about:memory, click Load, the path selection window appears - regardless of whether I select a file or close the window, the browser hangs and the window stops responding. I tried waiting for several hours - to no avail. Only restarting helps. Same with the upload selection window - regardless of whether I selected a file to upload or closed the selection window, the browser hangs. Before freezing permanently, the mouse cursor stops moving, then lags around a bit before recovering.

I tried cleaning download history, cache, recreated profile, restarted without extensions, in safe mode, disabled antivirus - always the same result.

Please advise me, maybe someone has encountered something like this - I really don't want to start using Chrome. My OS is Windows 11. Thanks in advance.

I pasted the website link because I wanted you to give me the best answer.

Hi all,

Apple has revised/updated their iCloud web portal. The backspace key no longer registers in the iCloud Calendar app on the web. This is specific to Firefox on Windows - I've tried other web browsers to access iCloud web portal and Chrome's backspace key registers so its not an Apple iCloud problem, just Firefox. Is there a setting or do I have to wait for an update?

Thanks in advance.

Due to a Windows 11 system restore, I had to reinstall Firefox. After signing in I found that all bookmarks, extensions and passwords have gone and the original 2020 profile they were attached to seems to be missing as well. I initially installed the Firefox app from the windows store and thought that might have been the problem, so uninstalled it and reinstalled from the mozilla website. That didn't heelp so I went through all the help articles I could find and I still can't figure out how to restore anything.

I prefer to have all my previous tabs open when I start up Firefox, which means that I don't want them to close upon exit. Recently, Firefox started closing my tabs upon exit, even though:

- I tried both hitting the X and choosing Exit from the hamburger menu
- I have checked "Open previous windows and tabs" upon startup in settings
- I have not checked "Delete Cookies and Site Settings when Firefox is closed"

- I have the option "Firefox will remember history" selected

- I do not open in Private Browsing mode

What other settings do I need to change? Debra

I'm using my Firefox with Custom CSS with toolkit.legacy thing enabled. I'm using Firefox for my everything and I love it. But It keeps break my current profile then starts a new profile that everything has been reset. It keeps break my profile and starts a new profile. I lose everything... It's enough for me. I could not find any solution for it. If It's not fixed, I'll stop using this beautiful browser :'(

I used to be able to right click an image and select save as, but now when I right click and select save as I do not get the menu to save in a location on my pc.

Also firebox will not download any files, and also when using my web site's Upload or download a file, this does not work anymore.

They used to work, but I have to use chromium browser to do things in.

Also Firefox will export any files or even my bookmarks.

Been happening for around five weeks now and is impeding my work flow enormously.

Please held.

I have tried all the fixes I can find online without success.

Regards James

Ps even here where it says add images (optional) it will not open a box to browse my files.

Why does FireFox not allow me to play videos in Youtube above the resolution 360p. Since now FireFox won't allow me to play YouTube videos from 720p or 1080p anymore.

Everything started when I was fed up with ads on youtube. I purchased ad blocks. Then I had troubles with ad blocks. Ad blocks keeps breaking down. It will work for a few weeks then cracking. This went on for a long time until finally they said I had an old version, that I have to download the current version and they sent me a link. I tried it and then the link said I have to choose a paying option. I knew that's not a special link. They just sent me the same link for buying a new adblocks. I subscribed a 5 year program. And their service didn't even last a year.

In the mean time google keep flashing the ad of subscribing to youtube with a prime service.

But I started to download Firefox. I had a terrible time downloading it. I failed a couple of times. I finally managed to download and install Firefox. In the mean time the suspicion about google is messing around with my account started.

I haven't been happy with google for a long time, ever since they started to monitor people's comments on youtube. So after I deleted my videos and then I went into troubles of making comments on youtube. Finally I succeeded changing the code they gave me to a name I can remember. In the mean time they discontinued my account. All kind of things happening to me. I finally shrugged them off as a matter of miscommunication. But the flashing ads became a flashing warnings, something like you must choose google or discontinue adblocks. Then I started searching if there's a battle between google and adblocks. Finally firefox came through, and I was still troubled by annoying ads. Finally I got so mad, I just deleted adblocks completely out of my computer. And somehow I found firefox has an option I can turn on to block the ads. Ever since then I was enjoying watching youtube again. And google's warning became more frequent and I just close the window without choosing any options.

All through this period, I ran into troubles with my computer on and off. I keep telling myself it's because my grandson is playing with my computer. But I cannot help thinking things are really getting out of hand. I need some help.

My grandson finally getting used to using my daughter's computer. I really shouldn't have that much trouble any longer. This morning when the stock market started trading. My Robinhood page didn't update and showing the durrent stock prices. It went on for a while. I googled if the market is on holiday. It's not a holiday. Then I tried to refresh the page, and nothing works. I finally deleted the page and started a new page. Then it worked. This went on for about an hour. It seriously disturbed me a great deal. I chatted with Robinhood, and they said they didn't have any trouble with their internet. I know it's time to ask help from Firefox. It's google messing up with my account. Can anyone tell me otherwise? Please help.

My issue is I can't see the outlines of the tabs. It's just a broad, pale blue area above the page content, barely distinguished from the white background of the content itself. I can't see the address bar, either. Why don't applications use borders any more? It's really, really annoying. At least the + sign to create a new tab has made a re-appearance, along with the X's on the tabs to close them (I couldn't find them when I started up Windows this morning, started searching frantically for a setting to display them as it seemed like there was no tab bar at all, and eventually they reappeared and I have no idea how).

I really hope there is something to be done short of editing a .css file somewhere, but if that's what has to be done, please tell me where to find the file and ideally, what elements in it I need to modify.

BTW, thank you for putting outlines on the text entry fields for this web form. An awful lot of web site developers don't seem to think they are necessary.
