Firefox, Captcha problems and live plugs

I use Firefox 79. I have removed all the extensions except my antivirus (Avast Ultimate) which includes a VPN but the VPN is currently turned off. I have Firefox 79 installed on two computers, one of which connects by CPL ("powerline adapters/homeplugs") and the other connects to the router by an ethernet cable. My Firefox settings are identical on both machines and I have no Captcha problems with the one using the ethernet cable. I also completely turned off my home network and reset it - fibre optic box, router, both computers, and unplugged the CPLs - and then restarted them from the optic box forwards one by one. It made no difference, the CPL problem still exists.

I sought help on the Microsoft Community Forum and sent the two blokes I was working with all the above info and they concluded that the problem wasn't with the CPLs which, incidentally are TP-LINK, model TL-PA7010P(KitFR) with the Version 3 software. All three lights on each of the CPLs are solid green. I have also informed TP-Link France of the problem and I'm waiting for their reply. Following advice from one of the blokes on the MS Forum, I ran a Speedtest.net on the CPL machine and the results were: downloading 91.99Mbps and uploading 87.47Mpbs and the Ping response was 20. (This is all nonsense to me but may help you.) Both people on the MS Forum concluded that the problem does not lie with the CPL.

I'm going to replace the CPLs with a 30m ethernet cable (less aesthetically pleasing and more encumbering) to see if that resolves the issue.

On multiple websites I visit, picture in picture happens automatically when I scroll past a video or click another section of a page. I find it highly annoying and distracting. I would like to disable it completely. How do I do this? I'd appreciate an answer that isn't too technical. Thanks.

Recently (within the last two weeks) I've noticed that my mouse cursor will randomly jump to the upper corner of my screen while viewing a page within Firefox. From my observation it's only happening within Firefox, and the only variable I can think of is that I started using containers to visually differentiate my tabs. I've since tried to revert back, but the problem persists.

I'm running a Surface Book (Gen 1) with dock and multiple monitors. If there's any additional information needed to better diagnose the problem I'm happy to supply it if it means finding a resolution.

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

My windows 10 is forcing me to update windows. If i ignore the warnings. it just kills my unsaved work and restarts my computer. To make it worse. After I start Firefox again is starts to update too. And after the update all my Open tabs and session info is completely killed. The first time it was annoying. be now it is a reason to go back to an other browser. The last time i checked i was still the owner of my laptop. and not Microsoft and not Mozilla!

If this bug is not fixed I uninstall Firefox. I need a browser i can rely on. not just doing what it wants.

Still looks like some parts of the page don't load, tried all the individual line items in 'page info' without success.

Seems to forget that the security was overwritten.

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

I was using Firefox in my computer and it was working fine. But after I migrated to windows 10 Os and installed Firefox, I am facing some issues with Firefox. First of all, the gmail.com page is not loading correctly (image added). Also some websites like geeksforgeeks and other websites are having trouble to show some images (mainly).

- what I tried doig previously. 1. Doing ctrl + shift + r on those pages 2. Uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with clearing firefox app data folder from windows computer. 3. Doing a refresh from help menu. 4. Tried running in safe mode. (disabling all extensions) 5. Clearing cache and data from firefox settings.

How how to show them perfectly. however they show good in chrome, but I want to use firefox. So a fix will be highly appreciated.
