I am unable to use the Firefox feature to store a saved credit card. When I attempt to do so I enter all the CC details accordingly, but clicking the "save" button results in no action taken. The cc modal just sits there and nothing happens no matter how many times you click save. Please advise.

I am facing recurring tab and window crashes on Firefox 108. This is one of the submitted crash reports https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/b930a34e-c41d-4514-9dbd-a09970230204#tab-details

I have tried disable extensions one by one but it does not seem to affect the problem. Or at least there isn't a clear pattern that can help isolate the problem.

How can I fix this? Can someone help me read these reports better?

I upgraded to 108.01 three days ago. It crashed 3 times in the next two days, accompanied by that popup you get informing you of the crash.

For years I've been using the extraction method of the executable to create a Firefox portable application. Upgrading only involves the install folder. The profile remains untouched, unaltered.

I had an incident of profile corruption a couple months ago, with basically Firefox launching with most features not working, i.e. toolbar buttons, toolbar menus, etc. Yesterday, for a short time, aside from two crashes, I had a similar experience with the buttons, but not quite the same. My default built in Firefox buttons worked, but my extension buttons didn't. I also noticed on a page that I regularly visit, Ublock origin wasn't doing it's regular job of blocking, and the Ublock button was non-responsive.

I'm also in the process of using the Brave Browser for the first time. The reason I'm posting this here about this subject, including a Brave experience, is that at the same time I was experiencing the Firefox erratic behavior, Brave was crashing as well; freezing; tabs not loading.

Considering the Brave tabs not loading, and the temporary Firefox Ublock origin failure, etc., I'm wondering if there might be something in common here? Maybe an internet connectivity issue at the time?

Youtube autoplay stopped to work properly.

After previous video next video really starts automatically then, may be after half a second or second, the video stops and returns to intro splash screen of the video. One must press Play to start this next video again. I tried next steps: 1. In Firefox Privacy and security settings / Autoplay: I allowed audio and video autoplay for all sites 2. On the left side of URL string for Youtube site I pressed the button and also allowed audio and video autoplay for the site. The image on this button changed. I reloaded Youtube - no effect, reloaded Firefox and Youtube - all the same.

3. I checked Youtube autoplay in Microsoft Edge browser - it works correctly.

What should be done in Firefox to restore autoplay? I don't remember when this problem appeared.

Basically.

I see a lot of options on how to disable Javascript context menus on sites, for purpose.

I want the opposite - certain sites, most notably Google Workspace and Nextcloud, have a very useful Javascript context menu for things like tweaking format or renaming files.

But when I right-click in Firefox, the browser's own context menu pops up and overlaps with the site's, making it nearly unusable. (Pressing escape to dismiss the menu has a 50% chance of also dismissing the site's)

Any way to disable the context menu? Bonus points if it can be done on a per-site basis.

When I try to view a pdf in the browser, Firefox downloads it first. I went into about:config and changed to browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir = true just to get it to stop downloading to a specified folder, but now it downloads in tmp directory leaving me with the same issue of pdf's piling up on my computer just to view a pdf in the browser.

This never used to be an issue. I do not want to automatically download every single pdf I view on the internet. Is there some way that Firefox can simply render the pdf instead of downloading it?

print preview shows then is quickly covered by the preview loading window that never goes away. I have refreshed, reloaded and gone back to a previous version of firefox to no avail. Unable to print anything from the browser. Windows 7 professional, HP desktop with I5. This used to work fine. Printers work fine from word. With the exception that the DJ2450 crops the right and lower of any image pasted into the document. But the DJ1500 does not do this. Both printers HP. Have even installed new printer drivers, but print preview still does not work. I will be installing Linux in the near future but do not know if this will fix the problem. Has anyone tried this?

Firefox 109 is horrible and I am trying to revert to 108. I have the "Old Firefox Data" file, but have no idea how to get ALL that info back into 108. I am so very upset and frustrated right now! So much wasted time. I cannot believe Mozilla did this to us with no warning!!!!!!!! I have seen some articles on how to get the info back, but I don't really understand them. I am relatively computer-savvy, but I definitely do not understand how all this works. Some "Firefox for Dummies" at this point would be greatly appreciated. I am on a PC using Windows 10 professional 64-bit with automatic updates so it's current.
