Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Hi folks,

Forced to update (expected) and 102 ran like two flat tires and no spare whil eI had no issues with 91. MANY hours of searching got me reasonably successful in acceptable performance. But two problems, one which could easily be a bug:

1. I can find no way including in about:config to enable lazy tab loading. In other words, open a group but not load each tab until it is clicked on.

Where did that go?

2. This one is more unique. I have a desktop install of ESR and a portable ESR install on a thumb drive. For MANY years I backed up bookmarks on my desktop and restored them to FF on my thumb drive. Now, after I shut down the portable (which takes a very long time) there are multiple bookmarks. Html files that seem to merge on shutdown. Problem is, on the thumb drive this is not completed before FF shutdown and the processes closed. Results in damaged bookmark files and a crash EVERY time.

IF I drag the copy of FF ESR portable to my desktop and perform the same procedure, no problems. So somehow on a USB 3 thumb drive the process of merging bookmarks. Html files is too slow and will cause a crash consistently.

Any suggestions or should I file a bug report?

I have used Firefox for my online banking for years. Just recently when I go to the bill payment section and click on the drop down list to pay and view a bill, I can pay the bill, but when I try to view the bill the view bill window comes up for a second and the a drop down of the bank's home page comes up. The view bill page used to be a PDF file and Adobe Reader is my default. I talked with the bank and they did not see it happen in my account. If I open the online banking in Microsoft Edge it does not occur.

When I click the download button I usually see my recent downloads and click open the file directly from the drop down. After 10-20 downloads are performed the drop down no longer shows my recent files until I restart firefox. I think the issue is once you hit a certain amount of downloads the preview drop down no longer works. Is this a know bug? Its happening on any pc, im on version 104.0.2 (64-bit)

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

I am getting a 404 Not Found message on only one page of a gigantic web site (www.bowl.com). I go to this page 10 or 15 times a week--for almost 20 years--and have never had a problem. Bowl.com's IT department has no idea why. I have cleared my cache and history (many times over the last week or so), and nothing seems to work.

I can access this page with Edge, and with my smartphone and on other computers in my network (Firefox), but I have to access this page with my THIS computer.

Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

Hello. I am in need to open www site of Swegon AHU unit which is built on java. I have two installed java versions, 1.8 (one of latest of this branch) and 1.6. Problem is the AHU site is not working with anything newer than 1.6. I can't find proper solution for opening site with version 1.6 without much issues or much asking from browser. I need version 1.8 of java for daily use, and 1.6 is only for mentioned device. I tried to disable java 1.8 in java control panel but it doesn't seem to have any influence. I try to open site in Firefox 52ESR because for my knowledge is it one of latest browser which supported java. The problem is, Firefox each time is asking me what version to select for each class which must be loaded, and these classes are many for one page. It makes working with AHU a pain in azz. Everything because java is out-of-date. I know it is, but I don't have any option - these devices are not mine, and I can't upgrade firmware on myself, and can't force customer to do this. And I don't even know if there is any upgrade for them. I looked in internet but didn't find anything suitable for my case. Is there anything I can do with java or firefox 52ESR settings to make this site works flawless? I set applet in Firefox to not asking when activate java, but it still nagging me with questions and requires confirmations. I can't bypass it. I tried to use Internet Explorer 11 but there it is even worse, because out-of-date java is not allowed to run, no matter what settings i made in application. Please help.

FF Slides Windows Taskbar On Open, Issue Reopening Last Session

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

I've never synced FF, or even signed ti gor that, and I ran malwarebytes and goettn nothing.

I'm working on an iMac, Monterey 12.6 and using Firefox 105.0.1. In Settings, I can only choose to have downloaded files be saved in the Downloads folder. If I were to check the box "Always ask you where to save files", it won't fully download or will be sent elsewhere on the Mac hard drive. I tried reading other articles that dealt with changing True/False settings in Firefox, but I really have no idea how to do that and if it made it worse. How can I fix this properly so that when I choose to download a file, I can also choose to save it in a specific folder? I'm also not sure if the Applications choices (how Firefox handles various files) is incomplete or not working.

I want to know what caused the Firefox icon to disappear from my dock and be replaced by the generic icon. Firefox seems to continue to work well. I don't want to re-install it when it seems to work. However, I want to know what caused this to happen and if there is an easy way to restore it to the unique icon. I've read about the various remedies but don't want to take the time for a re-install when everything seems to be working.

Please just tell me the cause and if there is an easy solution.
