Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

Yesterday Firefox, which I've used for years, suggested that I refresh. So I did. It created an "Old Firefox Data" folder. The newly refreshed Firefox had none of my bookmarks, etc., so I tried to add them by calling up the site and pressing Control+D, clicking on the star, etc. Nothing worked. Then I tried to add "Top Sites" to the opening page of the browser, putting in the name and URL. That didn't work either. Then I went to look at the suggestions on the Mozilla site as to what to do, either to allow the current version of Firefox to accept Top Sites & Bookmarks, or to reinsert the Old Firefox Data. I found the relevant pages but could make no sense of them. The recommendations are infinitely beyond my computer capacities, but even the simplest suggestions, like 'open the Old Firefox Data folder, highlight the items contained therein, right click, and press Copy' were unhelpful, since when I right-clicked, the menu that came up didn't include "Copy." Should I uninstall Firefox and download anew? I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox of approximately the same vintage. (Alas) I am also of a generation that remembers when electric typewriters were the big new thing, so I'm going to need very very simple instructions. . . . Many thanks, DKS

However, when I make my request to the site, the authentication fails as if the certificate is not transferred in the request. Any suggestion of what is going wrong? Thanks - C

I've installed firefox in my laptop, and I want to use it in my PC with same bookmark, settings, cookies.. all same

What I have done is: I copy Firefox (whole folder where firefox.exe exist), then apply the profile. It works well, no trouble until now.

But, I have question: is copying whole installed firefox to another PC (without installation) is okay? From security and privacy perspective..

Hi all!

I started using Firefox a few months ago to try and get away from Chrome (great move!). I use it a lot for work, but also a fair amount for personal use. Is it possible to create different ‘profiles’ on your account?

For example, I would like to use the Sync feature to sync my work Bookmarks to my phone and PC, but I want to keep those separate from my personal ones. Allowing Firefox to toggle between a work profile and personal profile would help this out.

I’m using Firefox for PC and iOS.

Thanks Casey

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

Few years ago I had Firefox set to open to home screen every time I clicked Firefox on the task bar, even if Firefox was already open in the background. That worked great for me. Now it only lets you do it after four hours of inactivity or something. Or when you close all tabs, which also got harder to do lately.

Then until this morning, actually, I've been keeping a shortcut to Firefox home on the bottom of the the home screen right above Firefox in the taskbar. That worked okay for me, but I'd have preferred it like it used to be.

Today clicking that shortcut says "Shortcut isn't available." So I opened Firefox home screen to make another shortcut, but I can't.

I just want Firefox to open automatically start on the home screen. Because that works for me. Why does it keep getting harder and harder? And what I can do now to fix it?

This past week I have noticed while using google workspace it seems as firefox will time out. This causes my gmail to show errors because it is not connected any longer. It also seems that when this does happen I can't do anything through the firefox browser such as search or browse the internet until I completely close and re-open firefox. I would like to know what I can do to resolve this issue. I have refreshed, uninstalled and reinstalled, and tried about:config settings that handle "timeouts". Please I need assistance asap with this issue.

I am in another time in short time with same problems. Firefox don´t want to start any downloads. It can be small file in pdf, install files or larger files. In all cases it failed. I can not hear any sound in Firefox as printing is impossible. Exactly same operations in Edge browser working just normal. There I can dowload, listen music or hearing other sounds, as downloading is working normal.

I restored PC to early date but improvment isn´t done, so I am same trouble
