After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

Firefox 90.0.2 macOS 11.5.1 Facebook Container 2.3.1

I work with an organisation which is using Workplace (https://www.workplace.com/), a "social media" site owned, managed and run by Facebook. If you aren't familiar with Workplace, it is a business-oriented site to allow organisations to communicate internally - Facebook trying to improve its image?

Except although Facebook Container recognises it as a Facebook site, it breaks the specific site (https://citizensadvice.workplace.com/) my organisation uses. And neither can I place this site within Facebook Container.

I really don't want to turn off Facebook Container everytime I access this particular site, several times a week but I don't want to open myself up to tracking by Facebook.

Ideas or suggestions for resolving this problem?

Thanks

The system print works better for me than what Firefox has implemented, is there a setting somewhere to bypass the Firefox print and go directly to system print. Not hard to bypass by clicking, but if there is a setting I would use it.

In the last several days I have been unable to drag any tabs into a folder or other location to turn it into a bookmark. There are workarounds for this but they are much more complicated, inaccurate and time-consuming*. Similarly – I can't drag the folders around in the bar that they live in any longer. I feel as if some major interface change has been brought about, and it makes using the browser much more difficult. Can someone help me with this? I've lost a great deal of functionality and it's very frustrating.

  • as an example, I can use the bookmark tab option but then I have to navigate to the general area I want, drop it and then find a way to manually put it exactly where I want it. I used to be able to simply drag a bookmark to the desired location.

Fence Icon Above Email Address Box And Warning That Using Real Email Address Might Allow FaceBook to Track

Today is the first time I noticed a red fence icon above the box where I type my email address to login to the website where I do my work as a bookkeeper for a property management company. When I placed my cursor on the icon it said, "If you use your real email address here, Facebook may be able to track you. Click to learn more." See attached screenshot. But, clicking did nothing.

I'm pretty sure I'm safe since the email address I use to login to work is different from the one I use for Facebook, but could someone please shed more light on this?

Thanks! ~Elise

Firefox changes my System PDF viewer configuration when it interacts with a PDF, even when just saving the file

My problem is that Firefox keeps changing my System PDF viewer configuration when it interacts with a PDF file, even while saving to the hard drive.

I am running Windows 10, FF 90.0.2 (64 bits). I have Sumatra PDF viewer, Foxit Reader and Drawboard PDF viewer installed in my system. Sumatra is the default PDF viewer.

The order of installation was Sumatra -> Foxit -> Drawboard. Up to Foxit I didn't have any issues.

The problem is as follows: 1) If I download a PDF by pressing "Save" in the dialog box, the file is saved to the hard drive, and when I open it, the system PDF viewer has changed from Sumatra to Drawboard.

2) If in settings I chose "Use Windows Default Application", and I select Sumatra, when I click on a PDF, the "Open With" option shows "Applications\Sumatra.exe". However, when I click "OK", the pdf is opened with DrawBoard, and the system PDF viewer has changed again from Sumatra to Drawboard.

3) If in Settings I chose "Open with Firefox", then the file is opened inside FF and again, the system PDF viewer is changed to Drawboard.

Things I tried: + I have refreshed FF, and nothing changed. + I tried to uninstall Sumatra and reinstall it again and nothing changed.

I had the same problem before with Adobe reader. That is, I had installed Sumatra -> Foxit -> Adobe and the same thing happened. I ended up uninstalling Adobe. The I installed Drawboard and I am having the same issue know.

Thanks!

I had to purchase a new wireless router. It is recommended to use a new SSiD name on the new router verses the old one to stop issues with IoT devices. If I use a new recommended SSiD name, Firefox v90 takes well over 2 minutes to load. Google Chrome and Edge load instantly. If I do use the old SSiD Firefox loads normally again but I have problems with a bunch of my IoT devices on the network. I have tried setting the loading page to blank, clean installs, refreshing Firefox and playing with other settings in about:config. (Were does Firefox keep tabs of the network name so I can just clear it?) Is it in the registry? Windows 10 Pro 64 PC - New ASUS RT-AX86U router. Any help would be appreciated.

I just wanted to comment the existing Ticket https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291420

Which for any reason has been archived. I have the same problem and it is in the way every day:

Quote from the ticket refered: >I use multiple virtual desktops (let's call them A, B, C, and D) on Windows 10, and have a separate Firefox >window running in each.

>When I use the browser on, say, desktop D, then switch to desktop A and click a link from another application, >Firefox moves me back to desktop D and opens the link in a tab back there. If I had opened a blank tab in the >browser on desktop A first, the link would have opened in that window.

>How can I get Firefox to open links in the browser window that is on the current desktop, instead of in the most >recently used window? Chrome works this way, so I don't think it's a fundamental limit of Windows virtual >desktops.

Hello,

Since the last Firefox update I am being prompted for my primary password at random intervals of time. Before I only needed to enter my primary password once per session and this new behavior is a bit worrying as I didn't see it documented anywhere (is that really Firefox asking me for my credentials?). I had a look in the settings but couldn't see any new "timeout" feature or anything in the Privacy & Security section. What gives?

Thanks for any answer that will explain this mew behavior.

If I'm viewing a pdf in firefox, and I search for a word using ctrl+F, the viewer should jump to the location of the word. But recently for me the viewer is showing the wrong spot in the document. This happens for all pdfs.

For example, if a pdf has the word "fox" on page 4, when I use ctrl+F to search for "fox", firefox will jump to page 3 of the document, not page 4. I have to scroll around searching for the word.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
