The tab under Inspect Element -> Inspector -> The column right beneath filter styles column has this feature that suggests you some css properties. On my browser they get filled in more than once, endlessly I might say (without me pressing any button). This makes it very hard to add any css styles and I'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

Hi, My bookmark toolbar is visible and bookmark toolbar items is on it. However, they're not appearing on the bar. I just rebooted my PC, and have closed and re-opened the browser. I can only access them from the bookmark menu > bookmark toolbar. Relatedly, Firefox Home is not appearing when opening the browser, but my new tab page (Earth View extension) is.

Since Firefox recently upgraded to version 93 when I click on a link on the page I am browsing, Firefox opens a new Tab instead of using the current Tab. Previously Firefox opened the link on the same page which is the way I like it. Unfortunately when looking through the settings page, I don't see a way to change this back. Can you explain to me how to accomplish this?

I have used Firefox for years to log in to Fifth Third Bank. The last several months it has worked intermittently. The last 2 weeks it won't work at all. I have done all of the suggestions in Firefox help. Deleted cookies, Reset, Refreshed, etc. No success. I am able to log in using Chrome. The bank tells me that when I am using Firefox they do not see me trying to log in. They can see me immediately when I use Chrome. I am getting an error message number that is not helpful and an IP address that indicates it is tied to Comcast in my hometown. Help! I don't want to use Chrome!

It is a followup of a previous question and your suggestions did not work. May be I did not explained myself. The issue is that everytime I launch Firefox a "google page" pops up asking me either to accept or to personalize the use of cookies and whatever I choose it is not “memorized” so that the following time I launch firefox it asks again the same question. (I have google as my default search engine and I have a google account). Thanks! Giulio

We have a problem on 2 out of 41 computers running firefox. At a random intervals google.com stops working. Clearing cache sometimes helps, but not always. The problem dissapears after some time. The error message is "Secure connection failed" - Apparently the website did not send any creditentials. (I don't have screenshot at this time, it returned to normal again just before I got to the user having this issue)

The problem exists only on two computers, and only in Firefox. Edge and Chrome are working without any problems on both machines.
