Firefox runs fine most of the time. If I right-click to download an image, or click a link to download a PDF or other file, or Save HTML, I see the "Save file" dialog, click Save and then Firefox freezes up for a while, maybe a minute or two. Pages won't scroll. I can't switch tabs. I can bring up a different firefox window and it redraws its contents, but I can't scroll or do anything else.

This didn't happen a month ago, then one day after a system upgrade, it happens every time. I'm using FF 123.0.1 on Arch Linux. 64GB RAM, so it's not a memory shortage. I have upgraded one or two times more since the upgrade when this appeared. Chromium is not affected, Thunderbird is fine, and all other software continues to be fine as before, including when saving files. Only FF has this problem.

What is the problem and solution? Are there ways to gather more info to diagnose the problem, if needed?

I'm running Firefox 123.0.1 on Linux Mint 21.2. Something changed after my last update. I visit a number of web sites at which I scroll down a window to a link, click on it to open it, read that link, and then return to the previous page. Examples are news sites like slashdot.org, associated press, or arcamax. Firefox used to return to the place in the original site page where I had clicked on a link. Now, it returns to the top of the original site page, and I have to scroll down again to where I had clicked on a link. I can right click on a link, open a new tab, and then close that tab, but that requires multiple clicks, and I used to just click/click. Is there a way to set up Firefox to go back to the previous behavior? Thanks in advance. ;

The Bookmarks Gadget (under Add Gadgets) appears to have been hijacked. I have dozens of bookmarks and now every single one of them redirects me to https://12jav.net/. I tried clearing all browsing data, logging out/in, and reinstalling the gadget. It seems to have happened after installing the latest version of Firefox, and reverting to an earlier version did not help either. Can you please look into this? Thank you.

Windows Updates (KB5035845) and 10.0.19041.4163

After these latest updates, EVERY, Firefox browser (derivatives included, i.e. LibreWolf, etc...) are opening VERY slowly. Its almost like the browser is freezing while opening for around 10 - 20 sec, then opening. It used to open within a second or two. If I uninstall the updates the problem goes away, BUT, windows re-installs them automatically. After it is up and running its ok. The problem seems to be on startup only.

I have been a Firefox user for most of my time on a computer and that's a lot of years. A regular site I visit is Townhall.com. A few months ago I could no longer play videos because the link (video screen) would not appear. The text below where the screen should have been appears. I worked with Townhall on this and we could not solve it. Interesting was that periodically the link would appear but now doesn't appear at all. So I am forced to use MS Edge for Townhall videos.

Then it happened on another site I frequent - RacerX.com. When I try to play a video I get a blank screen with the message: "Unfortunately your Targeted Advertising privacy settings prevent us from showing you this YouTube Video. Please update your consent to see this content." I cannot find anything in settings which should cause this. I changed nothing. Settings are the same as they've been for years. So now for RacerX videos I have to use MS Edge.

I would prefer to continue to use Firefox as my browser but switching back and forth is not productive. As much as I do not want to make MS Edge my default browser it looks like I will have no choice unless you can help me solve this issue.

I have no problem logging in on Chrome or on my Android phone. I have deleted cookies and rebooted, but the same issue arises. It was fine last night. Now it's a mess. I do have a second Discord account and tried logging in through that. On Firefox that account isn't recognized either. Help please.

I just updated Firefox. That's supposed to improve things, right?

Now the address bar is gray most of the time. It looks normal when I'm entering a search, or editing a URL, the rest of the time, it's just ugly now. I don't like things to be changed arbitrarily like that. What is the rationale for changing the way that looks? How can I change it back? Please give me a setting, or about:config preference, and please don't get direct file editing involved, okay?

Why doesn't tiling the windows work as well as it used to? Yesterday, I could hit super+left, or super+right, from a maximized window, and it'd tile to the left or right side of the screen perfectly, the first time, every time, no problems. Now it has an intermediate stage where there's a gap all the way around the window. It seems to improve by clicking on a different window, then back into the Firefox window, but that intermediate step just shouldn't happen! What's a fix for this?

I also hit the button at the bottom to include optional troubleshooting information, but it said instead, "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps." No, I'm not doing that, get that thing working right, too!

I have some new issues after a recent update.

The tab bar fades when the window isn't focused. I certainly didn't have it set to do that before, and I have had no luck finding the setting for it. Tell me what the setting is?

Another I'd like to know the setting for, is the behavior of the address bar. It used to always be white, and now it's gray unless I'd entering something in it. I'd like to switch the setting back to the other way.

I've tried hunting for the settings for these things, but it has not been intuitive for me, and I guess I keep overlooking the pertinent settings somehow. Please tell me what parts of the settings page, or what about:config entries, will get things put back as I had them?
