The satellite imagery on google maps is mirrored diagonally, while the road map displays correctly over it. Win7, Firefox 108.0.2. started happening with Firefox 107.x.x and tried resetting Firefox, but no luck. Satellite imagery displays correctly in troubleshoot mode and private browsing. Cleaned out my cookies and cache, but no dice in regular browser.

Anyone have experience with that?

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.

Hello there. Ever since the latest update (to 115.0.2), I've been experiences random crashes. It's only happening with these 2 sites: https://www.mapsofworld.com/ and https://www.buongiorno.sk/ (there may be more but I haven't discovered any others as of yet). I open the sites and FF immediately shuts down. And then, after I restart it, there are no crashes listed in the logs (about:crashes). I've tried everything. Cookies, cache, a "refresh", a fresh install and I've also checked my system and HDD for errors but nothing helped. Any idea what I should do? The problem seems to be on your side, not mine

Hello Community,

I have always found the "Save Image As..." menu command when right-clicking with the mouse in order to save an image. Recently the website where I download these images from has implemented an automatic zoom feature that changed this standard menu (now appearing with commands such as "Save Page As...", "Save Page to Pocket", "Select All", etc...). I cannot access any command that directly relates to the underlying image and so I am not able to save it. The website developers assured me that with their own browser (not Firefox, I presume) the "Save Image As..." option is still available, suggesting me to install a different one. I believe the reason of this change in behaviour is because the mouse does not find a direct link to the image any more (as if there was a layer in between running a script to enlarge the image).

My question: is there any other way to access the menu option I need? Why should other browsers be able to "see through" the image and have the standard menu?

Thank you for any suggestion.

On my machine (windows 7 x86 - AMD HD 6670) hardware acceleration for video seems to be disfunctional since Firefox 109. Im using Firefox Portable Version. with Firefox 108.0.2 GPU acceleration for Video was still working. after upgrading to 109 - with the same profile data, addons, settings, drivers etc. - it is not working anymore.

With Firefox 108.0.2 and ESR 102.8 playback of the above video is accelerated by GPU on my machine. Since Firefox 109 and following versions it is not...

Because i did not changed any configuration before updating to 109 it is obvious that 109 and the following versions do not support video acceleration in my environment anymore. but why..?

Has update to Firefox 115.1.0esr (64-bit) broken things for other users as well? The update applied itself about 20 minutes ago, and then I tried to log in to my Hostinger account. Instead of the two-factor authentication kicking in as normal, I got a message about a Captcha check failed - even though there is no captcha.

So I went to google, typed in my search term, hit return, and instead of google going searching, I got a new line in the search box!

Google Chrome browser (which I hate) is still working fine. So is someone going to fix this? (I seem to get daily messages from Firefox about a new update available), so hopefully....

Sorry about the confrontational tone - I'm from an era when software was tested before it was released, not released and then fixed daily! And that was a bitchy remark too!

Facebook Crashes Firefox and Shuts Down the Network.

When on Facebook, Firefox will shut down the network connection so that it can't communicate anymore, no incoming or outgoing traffic through Firefox. I opened TaskManager to try to kill the process, but it leaves a single Firefox.exe process running and it CAN'T be killed. I've tried everything I can think of. In an admin command window, normally Tasklist to check for the process and then Taskkill /IM firefox.exe would work. It comes back with process not found, even though it's in the Tasklist and still running in the taskmanager list.

When trying to kill Firefox, it always says "Firefox is currently running" with the option of close Firefox or cancel. If you select close Firefox, the window just comes up again with the same question while leave Firefox.exe still running in the taskmanager. If you select cancel, the windows goes away and the Firefox.exe process stays running in taskmanager.

So I used Sandboxie (sandbox program) to open another Firefox window to continue, which works fine for a while until Firefox decides to shut down the network connection again. I even tried logging off the user account and logging into a different user account, Firefox is still there, running and still can't be shut down. It's like a bad case of Herpes or Chlamydia or something. Then all I can do is shut down and restart the entire machine.

So to reiterate, Firefox cannot be shut down and removed from the taskmanager process list using the typical right upper corner "Red X" kill, or by way of taskmanager "end process" or "end process tree" and cannot be shut down by an admin command window Taskkill command or logging off and switching users.

I don't know if the "autoscroll issue" is an inherent attached problem or separate, but I have that one as well. I'll be looking at asomething and Firefox with a mind of its own will scroll down maybe 2 to 10 threads, sometimes stop, sometimes continue scrolling all on its own. It's annoying as hell. I will try the layout.css "false" fix and see if that works.

Both these issues only occur on my cheezy 3rd gen motherboard/computer, so the specs for cheezyness...

Folks, my basic settings are "always use private browsing mode". I occasionally run into sites that don't allow this. I see there is the keystroke support for the ability to open a new tab in private mode. Can you develop one to open a tab in non private mode ?? it's a major pain to have to change the main private browsing mode setting to off, use the site that demands it off, then change it back afterwards.

Thanks,

  Tony

Hello,

I recently tried to renew a subscription to continue getting alerts for the ISS flyover times. I entered the info to renew, and was told a code was emailed to my address. After 8 attempts over 2 days to receive the code (which was never sent or in my spam folder), I used Chrome to fill out the form, and immediately received the code.

To log on here to ask this question I used Firefox (and I have Thunderbird for my email) and repeated tries got me no verification code. Switched to Chrome and instantly got the verification email.

Just trying to figure out what is preventing me from receiving authentication codes after typing in legit requests with Firefox.

I am using Win7 (x64) with the latest updates of Firefox and Thunderbird. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

A friend has passed away and I cannot access her obituary page. I could for a couple of days but I can't any more. Is this a problem with the FF latest upgrade? The page is [link removed by moderator]

I do not want her obituary page made public on a forum in case it causes inappropriate comments.

I have just discovered the page works ok on Chrome so I will use that for now, but I am reporting the problem to try and help you. I am using latest version of Firefox.

I have added a screen snip of the part-loaded page.

I just followed the button below about extra troubleshooting information and lost all the information I had typed into this box, which irritates me as well.

Have a look please and let me know, thanks.

The new Mozilla Firefox (version 110.0) does not run after update on my system. After run it shows the window, but this window doesn't respond. The clean installation (of course with profile folder erase) doesn't fix the problem. I have tried both x64 and x86 versions.

The previous version installation (109.0.1) works fine.

There are some screenshots included. I use Windows 7 on Ryzen 7 2700X processor. Could you please advice, what can be done here?

Firefox currently blocks port 10080 to protect against a presumed security threat. Linksys routers use port 10080 to allow users to log in to the guest network so Firefox has rendered Guest Network logins to be unaccessable forcing router owner to allow "guests" to log in to the the primary lan and potentially cause issues with the very network they are trying to protect from outside issues. Firefox needs to provide a way for guests to log into the guest network within their software... particularly in the ios and android versions of the Firefox apps. Please provide a reasonable workaround so that I don't put my network at risk by allowing guests to log in to my primary network.

I am running Windows 7 (and will not downgrade to one of the newer versions). Firefox has stopped supporting Windows 7 with version 115, which I am currently running. However, I get a pop-up message each time I launch Firefox asking if I want to download the latest version (which cannot be installed).

Is there some way to stop this annoying message from appearing?

Call me old-fashioned, but I miss Netscape...
