Hi,

When I updated to 80.0 when new tab is opened it won't immediately start loading pages but it delays for a moment until it starts. I didn't have that issue on version 79.0. Anyone knows how to fix this?

Hello years ago I signed up to be a release channel user. I no longer want to be part of that as prefer to have updates to firefox only when they are released to everyone and not beta releases. Is there a way to ensure I dont get these early upgrades to my browser but keep my firefox account and all my data ?

Any help on this would be appreciated many thanks Dino

I can't disable it for all websites by default - i have to set-up individually for each website. It seems that these settings are stored in cookies, because after clearing cookies i have to set it up again.

I have disable FF title bar because it takes valuable space. FF gives from WinXP until now this ability. But in Windows 10, when you half minimize the window the minimize/restore/close buttons dissapears. Could we fix this without enabling the title bar ?

I attached 2 images of my FF bars to saw what exactly I mean.

At first image (Capture1) the window is partly minimized and the Close button is out of window.

At second image (Capture2) the window is even more minimized and the minimize/restore/close buttons is totally out of window.

Hi,

Google Chrome have just dropped an update featuring Tab groups. Holy smokes it is good.

As somebody who frequently has over a thousand tabs open, this is such an awesome feature. Any chance of Firefox getting it?

PS Love Firefox, great browser!

My FF bookmark menu seems be going crazy this morning.

It replicates bookmarks (one or two of them) dozens of times, without provocation, all by itself. I can delete the duplicates, but seconds later, they appear once again.

I restarted FF a couple times. Restarted my computer. Exported, then reimported bookmarks. Tried to uninstall FF, but was then given the option to "refresh," which is what I did.

I thought it may have stabilized, and proceeded to reorganize the bookmarks, whose order had been scrambled. Halfway through the task, the schizo behavior returned.

Yesterday, my Yahoo bookmarks (not Firefox bookmarks) on my my.yahoo.com page began displaying improperly. They are no longer alphabetized, some don't work, and they each have a grey icon for edit and delete visible next to them. They also are not as compact as they used to be, and I can't collapse any of the folders. This problem does not occur if I use Chrome or Internet Explorer 11. It also does not occur in Firefox on my laptop computer (I am using Firefox 80.0 on both machines). I have tried turning off all extensions, restarting Firefox, logging out and back into My Yahoo, and rebooting the computer. I also tired refreshing Firefox (which I HATE to do). No luck. I have included two images. The small one shows how they are supposed to look (cut from IE) and the larger one shows how they now appear in Firefox.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I use these bookmarks all the time.If you need more information, please ask.

For some time now i have this problem where sometimes the Player on Youtube does not work properly and covers my reccomendations. I cannot click on them only if i move the mouse into a certain position it is possible. Also if the video is shown as in the screenshot, you cannot go into fullscreen either, the frame stays the same and everything else is black. In this case the buttons do not work anymore and i can only close it with pressing the ESC Button.

What I tried so far: - Installed the latest update of Firefox - Tried Firefox Safe Mode (same problem) - I deleted my browser history (same problem)

It seems to happen when i open up a new Youtube Tab. Using the same window and just click on the next videos works normally.

Firefox Unable to Use GPU

I use a laptop with both an integrated graphics card and a dedicated graphics card (GTX 1060 Max-Q). Recently after reinstalling Windows, I found that Firefox refuses to use my dedicated graphics card. What's stranger about this is that when testing Chrome and Edge, Chrome has the same problem, but Edge seems to detect and use it the dedicated card just fine.

I used both https://alteredqualia.com/tmp/webgl-maxparams-test/ to test this, as well as monitoring GPU usage with GPU-Z to confirm that this was the case. I'm also using Firefox 80.0 at the time of this issue.

Is there something that could be preventing Firefox from accessing the GPU or something?

Hi,

Fresh install of Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia" MATE 64 Bit and I seem to be facing some odd graphical glitches. I have looked on Google and found many links to the same issue and many of them are either "Disable hardware acceleration" or "upgrade your drivers".

I have turned off hardware acceleration, and I still get the issues, I can't update my drivers as I don't have a GPU only CPU.

I don't get any of the graphical glitches on Chrome or Mint itself, and it's only Firefox itself. I have tried the "Refresh Firefox" and same issues as well as running in safe mode.

Hopefully, someone here can advise me on a fix as I don't want to use Chrome since I use Firefox sync a lot.

Thanks!

PC: Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia" MATE 64 Bit Firefox Browser: 80.0 (64-bit) 8gb Ram AMD Ryzen 5 3400G Processor with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics
