I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

After upgrading to Firefox 99, Sharepoint will no longer load. The site can be loaded in all other browsers. After cache and cookies are cleared the page(s) work properly for a few clicks, but if you click the back arrow it goes back to the 3 Sharepoint dots icon and never loads the page.

Not sure where this fits in so I started here. I have been running firefox for a very long time. For my home page, I am using Protopage. I have my google calendar as one of the widgets on the page. I have it set up correctly. It was showing up yesterday. Now today it is not showing. I am getting this error:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, accounts.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I have not made any changes to Protopage or Firefox.

Got any ideas what has changed? What I need to fix to get it working again?

Hello,

Please can you tell me how I can click on a word document and for the document to automatically open without having to click the link in my downlaods? See screenshot of the download box that appears in the top right that I have to click to open the word document.

It does it for a PDF document but not for a word document.

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Ever since upgrading to windows 11 firefox developer edition will not work for me at all.

I have reinstalled it multiple times now and every single time its the same thing, after a fresh install I can open the browser, use it once, close the browser and then it breaks and I am unable to use it again - sometimes i cant even open it up again it creates a background process in the task manager but never appears.

  • - None of the tabs will load anything at all including any of the settings pages or debug/troubleshooting page (about:<page>) - its like it doesnt even attempt to load anything its completely unresponsive
  • - Clicking on any buttons in firefox/options menu do nothing
  • - If i close it i see between 2-10 firefox processes appear in my task manager which i have to go through and end each task before i am able to open the browser up again and even then that doesnt always work.
  • - Because it opens a bunch of processes when you close the browser and this prevents it from re-opening it is not possible to put it into troubleshooting mode
  • - Even after a fresh install (described below) after re-installing the browser it always opens for the first time with a message saying that 'I have reinstalled firefox would i like to refresh the browser' with a button to refresh - If i click this refresh button it instantly breaks it

In order to fix this I have to completely remove firefox from my machine including:

  • - Everything in my users folder
  • - Everything in program files/programdata
  • - Search my C:\ drive and remove all traces of mozilla/firefox i can find
  • - Clear all temp files
  • - Run a disk cleanup
  • - Restart my machine

Before i can attempt to install firefox again. If i dont do this after i reinstall it opens firefox up in exactly the same state it was in before i uninstalled it, same tabs open & completely unresponsive.

I have searched for this problem, and only come across outdated information about Youtube's intentional changes to slowdown Edge and Firefox in 2019. This is not that.

When I load a new youtube video, the video will buffer as normal, and then buffering stops. Then there is a delay of about 10 seconds. You can see from my screenshot that the buffer is filled just fine, and playback begins about 10 seconds later. This also happens if I skip ahead/back or to any position in the video. This firefox install is on a new install of Windows 11, with a new xps 13. The previous xps 13 with windows 11 didn't have this problem, and I don't have this problem on my desktop setup with windows 10.

I use a few addons: decentraleyes, ublock, duckduckgo and I have privacy protections set to strict. I have tried a few troubleshooting steps and the problem persists. Things I have tried:

  • safe-mode
  • fresh install
  • installed additional codecs
  • used user-agent workarounds to show as a chromium based browser
  • turned off hardware acceleration

The problem doesn't happen on chrome, but it does happen on Edge, which is strange. Because of this, I'm wondering if there is something going on with codecs. In the firefox screenshot posted, the codec used is vp09, same with Edge. But in Chrome the codec is av01.

This is happening to literally anything related to Google. Be it gmail, google forms, google docs etc. If I wait for 10-15mins then it starts working. Then after some time again this problem persists. This happening only in Firefox and not Chrome or related browsers like Brave. So what is the problem?

My minimize/maximize buttons have suddenly gone missing. I found other answers on this site that say Tablet Mode is the culprit; indeed, the density settings within Firefox are telling me Tablet Mode on.

However, tablet mode was officially removed in Windows 11. It's not in the settings, it's not in the Control Panel, and registry edits don't seem to work either. So what's going on here? A regression? How do I get my minimize and maximize buttons back?

Submitting using Chrome, which may have to become my default browser.

Firefox 96.0. Windows 11 Pro Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000

Since installing FF 96, the program has stopped loading pages. Will not even load home page. Starting in troubleshooting mode sometimes works, but sometimes does not.

No extensions are installed.` I have tried Refreshing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. Neither helps. Multiple instances of FF are started with every launch, even when the launch results in a blank page.

Any advice would be helpful.

Thank you,
