FF is unable to navigate the grocery purchase procedure for Walmart. It has cost me hours and hours of tech support and re-entering data over and over, and also cost me hundreds of dollars paying for groceries that were supposed to be free, and my limited income doesn't have that type of fiscal flexibility. How do I get FF to look into this and fix it?

I had Firefox opened in a main windows with maybe 50 tabs of tabs I wanted to look at (documentaries, stand-up shows, stuff from work etc). I opened a second window and while navigating in the second window I mistakenly close the main. As one does, I hit Open recently closed window. Guess what? Firefox opens a window from yesterday and a few more empty ones, but not the one I just closed. Can someone help me with this?

When I try to access [https://www.surinenglish.com/] I got the following:

Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Since a few days I noticed on two different windows 10 PCs that firefox keeps signin out of websites (yahoo, linkedin etc), and this happens semi-randomly but sometimes more than once per day. My security settings never changed, I did configure firefox to delete history when closing, but preserving cookies and active logins. I also tried to add those websites to trusted sites (in the tracking menu, the shield to the left of the url). Any advice?

Hi, in the last few versions of Firefox, every time I open a private window, I get the private browser splash page and I can see that the main Address/Search bar is in focus and I even see the cursor blinking (and it says search with Google or enter an address as usual).

However if I try to type anything nothing happens. I have to click out of the search bar and click it again and only then can I type in the bar.

This only happens when I open a new private window. If I make a new private tab, the bar gets focus and I can type normally. It's only on the first open of a new window where I can't type anything in it initially.

Earlier this year (Feb/April) Firefox slowed to 25% of the speed of other browsers I use (Edge and Chrome). With or without antivirus on, all updates completed, even with protective restrictions completely turned off, I can only achieve 250mb down on my 1gb service. If I switch to my other browsers I'm immediately in the 900+mb range. I've deleted all cache, temp files, and followed some of the optimization guidance in the forum, but it simply isn't working.

I stopped using Firefox a few months ago, but have always preferred it. However I will need to abandon it completely if this problem is unsolvable. After all the effort, it is as though Microsoft itself has done something in Windows to target this browser.

Any help out there?

Is there a way to change the speed unit used by Firefox when downloading?

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth. Or, to compare the download speed to any of the speed tests I have done

Hi. I was a constant user of Firefox until a year or so ago. The bloat came in and I followed the hordes to Chrome. Chrome now has similar problems, (21 instances for 3 sites? Really?), so I looked into Firefox once more and found it has apparently been updated. I took the plunge and reinstalled looking forward to easier browsing again. Hmmm.

I am a user of ebay and pay via Paypal. (Just saying that, I guess some of you know what is coming now.) I use Eset Internet Security which has always been very secure, easy to manage and has never given a problem with ebay or Paypal in any way with Chrome. I have it set to open a separate secure browser for Paypal transactions. Using Firefox I cannot get any Paypal transaction to complete.

It has a variety of issues which I seem to meet at random on the way. Sometimes it just refuses to start, the circling icon sits in the small secure browser screen which is empty white and spins ad infinitum. Sometimes it gets to an authentication screen with a picture of a code to type in, except the code is missing and the box is empty white. If I refresh, it shows the code but the first entry is always incorrect then the second entry, if I am offered it, is accepted and I continue to login. Once the login details have been entered and I see the message confirming the data has been sent to www.paypal.com, sometimes it stalls here again and never gets beyond that. Very occasionally I get past this and see a yellow pling with the message "Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_ID or redirect_uri)". Well I am reporting it but I'm not holding my breath as this problem has been around for months if other people are to be believed.

I have cleared all cookies and caches and restarted Firefox. Nothing. I found a thread here where someone advised turning off location blocking for Paypal. No difference. Payments go through fine with Chrome so it can't be my security settings external to the browser, (Eset), and it can't be a Paypal issue. What is wrong with Firefox that such a necessary piece of functionality is either broken or is so unusual to set up that so many people, (I've searched so I have seen them), cannot make it work?

Any advice on this will be warmly welcomed.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.
