Nuance Dragon 15, my speech to text software, periodically opens a window and says restore privileges to the Dragon web extension for Firefox to improve performance. However, the fix it button is inactive and Firefox has never seemed to have heard of this web extension and denies all knowledge of it so the cycle continues. Has anyone else encountered this novel issue, please?

Almost consistently every day and often multiple times a day, Firefox will freeze up, unable to load new tabs, and sometimes will display a message that the browser has updated and requires a restart. Upon restart (when fozen), I'm prompted to create a new profile because I'm using an 'older version of Firefox'. After creating a new profile, I'm able to update the browser and switch back to my original profile.

Although this is a relatively easy fix, Firefox requiring me to restart my browser without being able to do anything else is disruptive alone, but not even completing the auto updates, crashing, and requiring me to do a workaround just to keep using the browser is driving me back to a more stable browser.

I don't remember updates requiring a restart before, or maybe they didn't happen enough to cause issues in my workflow.

I have tried using the 'restore' feature in the uninstaller hoping that it might resolve the issue with no results, but I haven't found any reasonable other options with my searches online.

This current version of Firefox (126.0) is preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing/displaying in ANY Yahoo! article. After I finished reading a Yahoo! article, the Yahoo! Comments is viewed but upon clicking on Comments, it just disappeared. It happens in any Yahoo! article with Comments. I used Safari to see if I experience similar issue but Safari is able to show/display Yahoo! Comments upon clicking on them. I have no other browser plug-in or app in Firefox preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing, it seems to be a Firefox JavaScript issue.

I've got my "homepage and new windows" setting set up with several "ext+container links so that my selected websites open in their respective containers : e.g. ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

I open facebook in 2 seperate containers so that I can maintain 2 seperate personalities under facebook - e.g. I am a group admin within one, just a group member in another.

I have 2 urls defined in my "homepage and new windows" setting for these :

ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor ext+container:name=Facebook&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

This was working fine without any issues. My sites opened up when I started my web browser and everything.

Recently, firefox has started up but my container tabs do not load automatically, I am getting a confirmation (I will post a screen capture as a comment).

Is there a way to turn this off and just open the tabs without a confirmation?

I have been using Firefox for many years and never had issues. Two days ago, I turned on my HP with Windows 10 and I got a pop up message something about Error Platform 126.0 XUL Runner is not compatible. I could not access Firefox, Google, or the internet. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, but after that, everything runs very slow. Each time I go into a website, it can take up to over a minute to pull up! I cannot even delete email from my Gmail! It's piling up. Downloading can take over an hour! I checked all the trouble shooting forums in Mozilla and tried just about everything. I went back into "About:profile"s and created a new profile. It it did not make any difference. I also did a Firefox refresh. Did not help any. I went back into the profile I had before the XUL error because my bookmarks were there. Still slow. I cleaned out the cache, in both Firefox and my Windows 10. made no difference. I only have three extensions in Firefox. I don't know what else I can do to fix this. Also, my drivers and other software are automatically updated by Windows. My HP is only 2 years old as well. Everything was fine in Firefox until that XUL error message popped up and I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. That is when everything became agonizingly slow!

Update: My computer is barely usable anymore because of the Firefox issue. Having to wait for a minute or more for everything I do on the internet? I know it cannot be my computer itself because it is not even two years old yet. I may have to dump Firefox if I cannot get this fixed. I have Norton 360 and it is not malware or a virus. Firefox messed something up.

But it did not I read several articles from FF users, I checked my User Agent Settings, they are correct. Called Chase, they said use Chrome as Firefox does not have the 'needed code' to work with Firefox. Been using Firefox with Chase for at least 5 years.

Using Firefox View, I am unable to view my tabs from other devices after setting up Sync. It is saying Check your internet connection. If you’re using a firewall or proxy, check that Firefox has permission to access the web. as if I don't have a correctly configured connection. However I indeed do and am able to browse the web without any issues. I should mention that I'm running the latest stable flatpak and I'm wondering if this could be related but I have no idea how to manipulate the flatpak to make this work.

I can control the number of rows. I can control whether to accept sponsored shortcuts. (I have chosen *not to.) I can control whether I want 1 or more rows to reflect recent activity. (I have chosen *not to.)

Yet until I pin my own preference to *every shortcut, it seems I cannot stop FF from putting "suggestions" in the empty slots, based on nothing but a single web visit.

This is annoying.

Moreover, if I visit several different pages connected to the same site, FF will put them all into shortcuts, with the same icons.

This is possibly even more annoying.

I am coming from Brave. They don't do things like that, although there is obviously a reason I'm giving FF a look.

But I would recommend, heartily, a home page shortcut box in settings that one could click (and actually *mean* something), like: "Don't ever suggest or fill in any shortcuts for any reason. I will handle it, and I don't like correcting your mistaken ideas."

Hi there. I wiped my C Drive and reinstalled windows 11 on my PC. Completely from scratch.

The first few thing I did is download firefox. I believe in the first boot of firefox, I can download things fine, I installed Ublock Origin add-on and a few installers for the app that I need to use. I can't recall when, but after a few reboot, I noticed that Firefox can't download anything, every download link I click on, the download fail instantly, I can't install add-ons as well.

I tried reinstall firefox, changing download folder target, nothing helped.

Can you take a look please? Thank you!
