Recently my home page is blank. Each new tab opens as blank, bookmark icons are missing. I used to have a search engine when i opened Mozilla but now it's totally blank. I need to click on the bookmarks icon to open the list of bookmarks saved instead of seeing them on the toolbar. I didn't change anything and now it's all gone. I have uploaded a screenshot of my screen when I open Mozilla.

When I open Firefox. Firefox Will NOT open any websites. If I disable ublock origin then enable again Firefox works but I get all the ADS. What I have to do is: Close firefox and restart Firefox but then I get this message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." Sometimes I have to restart Firefox as many as 10 times before Firefox works. I got to the point where I stop after the second try and just switch to Brave browser.

Before: Firefox use 99%. Brave Use 1% Now: Firefox use 75%. Brave use 25%

Hi all,

I'm wondering where sent tabs go before they arrive at the destination browser instance? Snoozes tabs go to a bookmark, but what about sent ones?

The reason I ask is because my Firefox instance, oddly, created itself a new profile one day. I don't know why, I didn't ask it to (as far as I recall), I only noticed because when I wanted to send tabs from my phone to my desktop I noticed I had a new "so-and-so's Firefox on xyz computer" appear, then on inspection I realised that my old profile has been mothballed by Firefox. When I loaded up the old profile it no longer had the browser name that I'd previously given it in Firefox Sync settings, and the tabs I'd previously sent to it did not appear. Whilst I'd like to understand why all this happened, it's not critical to my question, I just provide it as background.

So, where do these tabs go? If they never arrive at their destination then where can I find them again?

Cheers :)

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "We need to restart to finish updating" <- This last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on Fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

FireFox Developer 99.0b8 (64-bit) on the "aurora update channel" on Windows 10 PC (version 1803, build 17134.2208)

I notice whenever an update is pending (the green dot appears in the icon for the "Open Application Menu"), FF becomes unresponsive in a way. When it happens: It does not totally freeze. I can select/switch between existing tabs & scroll thru their pages. I can close tabs. I can open a new empty tab. But I can't load or refresh any pages. The only fix is to do the update, and re-launch.

Since the developer edition gets updated frequently, it is a pain.

I like the Developer Tools! But... How can I scale back the FF "update frequency", or "change the channel", so updates are, like monthly at most?

thank you.

YouTube Video GPU Decoding only works in Troubleshooting Mode

I recently upgraded graphics cards from an Nvidia GTX 1080 to an AMD 6900XT. Since then I noticed video stuttering on YouTube while playing 4k videos, especially noticeable at 4k/60FPS (example video ). Prior to the upgrade, I was not experiencing issues.

I monitored task manager as the video was playing to see CPU usage, which was sitting at 25% (4 core 8 thread CPU). GPU usage was fluctuating from 1-3%.

I tried resetting all the changed configuration options in about:config, removing all add-ons, "Refreshing" Firefox, and ultimately uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing has worked so far except for "Troubleshooting mode" in about:support. In that mode, I experience no stuttering and GPU usage rises to 25-35% with the video playing, even before I reinstalled.

This most likely isn't a networking issue as the "Stats for nerds" option on the YouTube video shows I have 10-20s of buffer while the video is still stuttering.

I would like to find out what's different about Troubleshooting Mode that is not giving me the same problem while in "Normal Mode". Any advice?

I'm struggling to get Firefox to use `http` instead of `https` when I'm doing development on my laptop. Playing with the `HTTPS-only` in the settings didn't make difference. With enable or not. I tried to add my `localhost` to exception list, but Firefox still tries to use `https.`

I understand the security concern from Firefox team, but if I'm trying to load by typing `http,` I would appreciate if Firefox gave me a benefit of doubt that I know what I'm doing. Maybe I could disable this feature temporarily. Why force `https` on `localhost`?

Please allow us some flexibility.

This worked before ver 100 and suddenly has stopped working with ver 100.

I even rebooted the computer (Win 10, 64-bit) and same behavior continues.

Firefox 100 and OWA Drag and Drop Problem

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

I am wondering if it is at all possible to adjust the settings when pulling a tab into a new window. For example, if I am running Firefox fullscreen I would like the tab that I pull to be opened in windowed form. I noticed that this is typically the case when using Chromium-based browsers, but noticed that on Firefox it stays in the format as the previous window. (if already windowed the pulled tab will also be windowed) is there a way to ensure that the pulled tab will always be windowed?

Good day.

My use case is the following. I use Firefox Developer Edition for developing websites. Usually the development happens on a certain part of the page. Most of the times it is not on the top of the page, so you have to scroll down to it.

Sometimes when the page is refreshed a jump to the top happens. So then I need to scroll down again. It takes a lot of time and concentration away if it happens dozens of times a day.

It often happens after I did some changes to the files on the page. It usually does not happen when I refresh the page a couple of times (when I purpously want to reproduce this problem).

I did try running Firefox in Safe mode, but it didn't help.

What can be done to fix this problem on my side? Is this a bug in Firefox itself?

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked a link in a document, I would like the link to open in a new tab of that previous window which Firefox opens at startup. For many years this was its behaviour. In Chrome for example, this was not and is still not the case.

Recent upgrades to Firefox have changed its behaviour to that of Chrome. When I click a link, Firefox now opens the link in a new window and then opens the previous window on top of that. The link I wanted to follow is behind and invisible.

Could someone check and see if this is related to my system (I'm running Monterey) or if it's reproducible? I can't think of a reason for this change so it feels like a bug, either on my system or in the app itself.

Thanks for any help!

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

Hi,

Its about time you looked at your Mic cam Cam settings

I'm getting older, they should be set as on as Default, and switched to off if required

This is a massive issue to a great part of the community I don't use Firefox as I used to, as so many of my clients are also moving away, ( Gone to different platforms to Edge and Chrome) I'm sure this can be easily fixed.

Firefox version: 102.0b7 OS: Win 11

While watching videos(movies/anime) video takes much time to buffer. If video is of 20 minutes then it loads first few minutes then after watch time reaches that buffered video then it takes more time buffer.

What I am looking is for, how can I force firefox to buffer full video at once or is there any way to increase buffer size.

I have been seaching for the solution for the whole day, and i found the closest one. It Does remove tabs, windows buttoms, but the background bar still remains, and i dont need it this way. So thats the code i used to make it >>>>>

  1. main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"]:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar .titlebar-spacer {
       border-inline-end: none;

}

  1. main-window:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar > .toolbar-items {
 opacity: 0;
 pointer-events: none;

} /* This makes the bar shorter vertically but removes the 3 window buttons */

  1. main-window #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse !important;

} /* For full screen mode */

  1. TabsToolbar[inFullscreen]{
 display: none !important; 

}

On the screenshot you can see what remains on tabs' bar place I need my browser to end just above the URL string, so there wont be empty space in the top of the monitor. Can you help me find solution for this problem, please?
