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!

I am trying to create a new Firefox account with it's own email to be separate from this Firefox account I am posting from. However, every time I try to follow the "sign up" buttons I get redirected to the login page where I enter what I want as the new account info and receive a "Primary email account required for sign in" The email I'm trying to use for my new account is NOT registered with Firefox and I am using a freshly installed version of the browser on a new PC so no extensions are interfering.

I was trying to customize the toolbar and I can't recall how, but I lost access to my extension shortcuts through the menu list button on the toolbar. I've been since trying to get the button back or replace it, to access my extensions that way but I'm not finding any options to get the button back which I find ridiculous because the button is very helpful on the toolbar in utilizing your extensions. I'm kind of a newbie so I'm looking for help in how to get the button back on my toolbar so I can utilize my extensions that way, please. Thanks.

I downloaded session manager on Firefox hoping to be able to import session file from session buddy from chrome. I tried importing the json file but it says it fails to read. Followed by some googling I found that the problem lies with the fact that session buddy files don't have several tags in current tabs in the json file so importing fails. Like mentioned here https://github.com/sienori/Tab-Session-Manager/issues/408#:~:text=Close%20Chrome%20and%20Open%20Firefox,%2C%20and%20click%20%22Open%22. I am a noob and I don't see how that could be fixed, any help, plz?

When I close tabs, and the computer stops working and I check the Task manager it turns out that firefox still runs 20-30tabs in the background when most of then have been closed and have just 4 running!!!

This occupies 100% of disk and CPU, and thw laptop stops functioning and freezes!!!!!!

And this happens all the time! How do we make firefox actualy close the tabs properly?? Without having to dig through task managerto close them again one by one?

Hello everyone,

I'm currently running into some speed issues with Firefox on my laptop. I run Windows 10 on my HP Pavillion Notebook, 64 bit, 8GB RAM. It has been very slow to load all pages for the past 2 days, despite no real change in routine.

My internet connection is fine however, and other browsers such as Chrome run very fast on my PC. I have my Firefox updated to the latest version, I haven't installed any new add-ons in a long time. Just gave my current ones a look and all seem fine. Can also run Firefox fine on phone, so the speed issue is strictly for Firefox on PC. I've restarted my laptop, router, run troubleshooting, and nothing is showing up.

Should I wait this out and see if it clears up on it's own? If so, for how long? And if not, what should I do to fix this? Please let me know if you have any new suggestions, thank you.

W10 and newest update are not compatible. I seek help using Android, because firefox is no longer usable on Windows 10. It started with the tab toolbar using up a large part of the screen and fonts being huge. When I tried to adjust fonts they became too small too read. Dwngrades threaten my profiles, a real low blow. What do I do?

I used to be able to copy text in a youtube comment by long tapping on the comment and then dragging the handles to select the text.

This method of selecting text no longer works with Firefox for Android. It still works with other browsers such as Opera, Duckgo and Adblock Plus for Android.
