(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

Been using Chase.com all along for years. Just today I am unable to sign-in. I enter the user ID and password but the "sign-in" button remains grayed out and inactive. First thing I did was try Chrome and got into Chase without problem. Checked for and updated firefox, cleared Chase cookie data, no help. Using firefox version 102.0.1 (64-bit). Firefox on my iphone got into Chase OK. Surprising that a major site like Chase would be a problem with desktop firefox.

I have a blog/website.

When changing to different sections of the site, everyone (including myself) using firefox are experiencing a white quick flash.

This is not occurring while on chrome nor opera.

I had this issue years ago with ff @ another location.

I found a small script online to add @ the header & it resolved the issue.

can't seem to find it now.

Hi

Firefox 102.

I have multi-accounts containers and pinned two tabs for two twitter accounts.

In one of these accounts I copied a link to a tweet and wanted to open it in the other account. So I selected the right tab and past the link in the address bar and press enter. Firefox then opened this url in a new tab instead of the current pinned tab. It seems pinned are locked but there is no context menu entry to unlock them without having unpin them.

Is there a hidden option in about:config that would allow to change the url of a pinned tab ? I want a pinned tab that work the same way as a regular one if I want to.

I've gone through all of the steps to reset my Firefox browser and attempted to change my search engine from Duckduckgo to Startpage. Every time it works a couple of times then Duckduckgo hijacks the search engine back to itself. I've deleted this search engine, reset my browser, said yes to prompts by Startpage to be the default browser, and tried everything that I can think of. Very, very frustrating. And I start to worry about the security of the Firefox browser itself. Any ideas?

Thanks, David

Hi - I need some help restoring the 100+ open tabs that are in Computer1, and open them AS-IS in Computer2.

To help you understand my story......Computer1 is main machine, and I had over 100 tabs opened in there. I would like to transfer ALL of the open tabs to Computer2, before re-partitioning the C Drive in Computer1.

The problem is, my Computer1's Windows 10 is giving me problems at the moment, so I can not get into the computer by logging in. No recovery or diagnosis method will do the trick, so I will have to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows into Computer1. Besides, the computer was troubling me for having only ~50 MB available space in the C Drive (I have multiple partitions in my hard drive).

For now, I have removed the hard drive from Computer1, attached it in Computer2, and have access to the data in the various Computer1's drives.

I read many articles here in the Support Mozilla help site to restore the 100+ open tabs from Computer1, into Computer 2, but it is not working for me. I even tried copying the entire "sessionstore-backups" folder from Computer1's location, and replacing the same folder in Computer2's location.

Maybe I have to do more than just copying the "sessionstore-backups" folder, like do something additional through FireFox options??

Any help would be appreciated.

And here is the location of the "sessionstore-backups" folder in both computers:


Computer1 K:\Users\Team Umizoomi\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\jrvowkxo.default\sessionstore-backups

Computer2 C:\Users\einstein jr\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\x9z76c15.default-release-1\sessionstore-backups

I reinstalled Firefox and made sure that I had unticked the data and history boxes, and declined the search suggestions. Nevertheless, the first attempt at entering a search immediately called up millions of the things. At Chrome, I have learned a sequence of eight clicks, whereby I can, for just that one search, avoid those hideous suggestions. If I could have a no-click option at Firefox, I would stay here. Otherwise, can you tell me how to uninst... no, I can first have another look in Windows settings. Looked through the C drive, but I recall now there is an "uninstall programs" facility in Windows. So, if you are able to tell me how to switch off the suggestions, I will stay at Fireofox. If not, I won't. I can remember a Google (or Chrome) person talking on TV, about 15 yrs ago, about this new thing they had (search suggestions) that everyone would love. Four or five seconds into his talk, I knew that I hated it, and have never moved a millimeter away from that position.

My bookmarks disappeared mysteriously yesterday while I was using the browser. All of them (I have a lot), there's nothing in the bookmarks toolbar. I use Firefox on two different machines regularly, and yesterday the second machine was fine, bookmarks still there. Today I logged on and the second computer had lost its bookmarks too.

I tried restoring. It worked on my other computer, no problem, all bookmarks returned. However, on this one the restore points are visible, but when I click them, nothing happens. I have tried restarting Firefox, no luck. Any ideas?

For some websites, get the following error message: "Error: Secured connection failed. While connecting www.obelink.de, the following error occured: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR This web site cannot be displayed, because the authencity of the received data could not be verified" (Sorry - I use Firefox German version, so this is my translation of the German error message) I get this error mostly after Firefox update, presently: 102.0.1 (64-Bit) I tried to empty the cache, closed Firefox (Shft + Ctrl + Q), restarted - nope. Interesting detail: When connecting to www.obelink.de on my Samsung Tab A7 (Firefox for Android 102.2.0), the web site opens instantly. And the Android firefox is much faster that this here (Win 10).

em pt-br:

Olá

Devido ao fato do Chrome não manter minhas credenciais e toda vez que eu iniciava este browser eu tinha que fornecer meu login e senha além do fato do Suporte deles não ter resolvido o problema, eu decidi mudar para o Firefox apesar de não ser o mais legal nem prático e intuitivo para se navegar como o Opera e o Vivaldi, mas sim por popularidade.

-O problema: Desde ontem, a página do Gmail não abre, isto é, mostra uma página totalmente em branco conforme anexo, apesar do link estar correto e, na verdade, eu utilizar os links dos Favoritos para diminuir a digitação e aumentar a agilidade.

-Minhas tentativas de solução: Eu desabilitei todas as extensões do Firefox (eu eu já utilizava mesmo antes do problema ocorrer); Eu executei uma limpeza geral utilizando o CCleaner; Eu abri o Chrome e, para variar, me loguei (por causa do problema mencionado acima) e a página do Gmail é exibida corretamente com todos os e-mails de hoje; Eu copiei este link do Gmail, no Chrome, para utilizar no Firefox porque estavam diferentes mas mesmo assim o problema persiste.

Acabaram as ideias

Obrigado

PS: Como inserir mais imagens porque só uma é permitida?

english: Hello

Due to Chrome not keeping my credentials and every time I started this browser I had to provide my login and password in addition to the fact that their Support didn't solve the problem, I decided to switch to Firefox despite not being the coolest not practical and intuitive to navigate like Opera and Vivaldi, but by popularity.

-The problem: Since yesterday, the Gmail page does not open, that is, it shows a completely blank page as attached, although the link is correct and, in fact, I use the Favorites links to reduce typing and increase agility.

-My solution attempts: I disabled all Firefox extensions (I was using them even before the problem occurred for the first time); I performed a general cleanup using CCleaner; I opened Chrome and for a change I logged in (because of the problem mentioned above) and the Gmail page displays correctly with all of today's emails; I copied this link from Gmail, in Chrome, to use in Firefox because they were different but the problem still persists.

I have searched for "How to share tabs between profiles" in firefox.

I was offered this option:

Share multiple tabs

   Visit the tabs tray by tapping the number next to the address bar, this number shows how many open tabs you have:
   Tap the three-dot menu button in the tabs tray.
   Select Share all tabs.
   The list of tabs to be shared will appear.

Visit the tabs tray - not very clear. by tapping the number next to the address bar - which number? I have more tabs that can fit across the screen and am not seeing any number/s.

Could someone help me with this please? I have a lot of migration to do.

Hi,

So far this year, Firefox updates are causing problems.

Sometimes it updates in the middle of my seeing patients.

It used to give me the option of restoring all tabs. Now it no longer permits that option, so I have to painstakingly go through my recent history and add each needed tab - very time-consuming and annoying. I don't want to switch to Chrome but may have to as I have to use it anyway for sites that don't support Firefox.

I used to watch the TED videos using the links in their email. Then some time ago they stopped playing. It accesses the website and video but there is a circle going around and nothing happens. I tested the same on Microsoft Edge and it works. I do not like Edge and hopefully, you can solve this issue because it is important. I have looked at all the solutions online but they do not fix the problem. I use Windows 11 and everything is up to date.
