Was using FF 79.0. Everything worked great. I upgraded to 80 or so a while back and found that it was taking ~7-10 seconds before FF would begin to load an initial webpage, so I used system restore to go back to 79. I've upgraded to 82.0.2 and the same thing is happening. Tried going back using system restore, but system restore failed for some reason, so I'm now stuck. I haven't had success re-installing FF 79.0. Any ideas why FF would be so slow loading a page? FYI, once I'm on that website, if I click to another page on that website, it loads quickly and normally. Only seems to be when I'm moving to a new website. I'm using Windows 7.

I continually have a yellow bar across the top of the page when I open Facebook on Firefox.

It says "A web page is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" then there are 2 buttons and a X next to that question.


My request is for Firefox to tell me it is Facebook causing the problem and how to get rid of it.

I need to use an earlier version of firefox because the "Google Translate In Page" addon was killed by Firefox, and this disabling has LITERALLY caused the continuous death of Covid-19 patients because we can't read about the lifesaving Covid-19 treatments on foreign sites, whose therapies are further ahead of the U.S.

I need to verify that when I load the prior version, it will allow the use of the previous addon once it's added from the addon list.

Please confirm as quickly as humanly possible.... Thank you!

Accessing Firefox account with secondary email address

Hi Everyone,

I cannot access my Firefox account created with 1 of 2 email addresses I use, I'll call this emailA, and do not have Firefox in an Authenticator app nor can I find the recovery code. The account did have a secondary email address listed. I'll call this emailB. EmailB also gets all alerts when there are changes to the EmailA firefox account such as new system logins and password changes.

Given that emailb gets notifications regarding the account is there a way for me to gain access to the account with emailA as the primary address using emailB?

Failing that, is there support who I can contact to have the account under emailA deleted?

Regards,

Chris

Hi all,

Currently on the latest beta on macOS Big Sur v11 beta (20A5364e).

Crashing of tabs has at least been resolved since previous versions but I am having an endless usability issue. I can have 2-5+ tabs open and clicking on the tab itself appears dead/unresponsive. Clicking a few more times (in different areas of the tab) or selecting another tab then switching back results in the tab being selected/usable/active again.

I am unable to find any common way to replicate this or reason for it - the sites in the tabs are always very much different. It's not the web site that becomes unresponsive as even when opening multiple 'new' tabs, the same issue can occur without even loading a site.

Detailed version info included.

I have an older addon that was disabled. it's no longer supported and won't be updated. I'd like to reenable it anyway. I'm well aware of the general "risks" involved and prefer to have use to my tools.

"Download has been disabled due to security or stability issues." The best I can see is that the inclusion of optional search bar changes is the culprit. I'd be more aware however the admin on the report has hidden the comments and the bug-report is a bit lacking.

I would prefer not to turn off all add-on verification unless I absolutely must. But that's the point I've now reached. I'm using FireFox 82.0b3 on MacOS 11 Thanks.

Every day I get a Firefox popup that says, "Firefox cannot download the latest version. Download the latest version and we will help you install it". Sometimes the popup appears immediately after I open my browesr, and sometimes it appears after I've been using the browser for several hours.

I've been doing the daily download and install, but I want to know what's causing this. I'm using a Late 2015 21.5" iMac running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.7. Firefox is Version 82.0b4, set as default browser with automatic updates turned on. I've been running Beta versions of Firefox for >2 years and have not had problems with updates before this. Thanks for any suggestions and solutions!

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

Just updated to 82.0 and all of a sudden I am unable to print legal size. All settings, including both Windows and Firefox shows legal paper size. Firefox prints in letter size only. All other apps/programs print in legal size. Any thoughts on this. Only started this morning after the update. Checked on another computer with Firefox prior to update and it prints legal, then updated that computer's Firefox to 82.0 on windows 10 pro and same issue. Thank you

I just started having this problem a few days ago prior to the latest FF update. I'll be browsing around and on some websites, all the sudden when I click on a navigation link, I get this Access Denied error. I've tried disabling all add-ons, totally shutting down my VPN, double checked my firewall settings, cleaned out my cookies and internet cache and even updated FF to the current version.I know these few websites (so far) are active, so after doing more researching, I've come here to see if anybody else has any ideas. I would appreciate it

it will literally stop working, no refresh, no navigation, sites fail to load properly sometimes all controls in the ui refuse to respond at all. The fix is always to shut down firefox, then on restart the new update installs and everything is fine. I find this as unacceptable as win 10 deciding it wants to reboot while you're working. This problem seems really intentional on mozilla's part and I the user should determine when I am done using the browser and ready to install an update, not the browser itself.
