The icon for private browsing has recently re-appeared on my taskbar despite having browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled set to false in about:config.

I've had this setting configured ever since the update which completely changed the appearance/behavior or private browsing and it has worked correctly up until today (14/06/24).

Is there a new setting that I have to adjust in order to "merge" the windows together as I'm not a fan of having the private browsing icon on my taskbar.

I am a long-time Firefox for Mac user and recently, browser APP all of a sudden is ignoring selected PRINT preferences. Two examples are: Printing one-sided when two-sided is selected, and printing in color when the default and selected preference is for a "Black and White Fast Draft". I use a MacMini M1 running Sonoma v14.5 and Firefox v 127.0 (64 bit). My printer is an HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 with up-to-date firmware. I have resorted to use of Chrome until I resolve this situation, though I prefer to use Firefox. In addition, while it may be a separate issue, I also found that the use of Firefox when using GMAIL developed a new issue at approximately the same time. Now, when clicking on the selection box for an individual email, Firefox often does not allow the box to be checked, but again with Chrome, it works just fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Few days ago I started to have issues with Zoom Meeting recordings playback. When I open the video it clocks but doesn't start playing. I never had this issue before. Zoom support cannot replicate this issue. They say everything works for them.

I cleared cache and history, restarted my computer but that didn't do anything for me - video still clocks. Playback works fine on Chrome. Somehow playback on Firefox stopped working for me. I am using the latest version.

Please help

Sometimes, when I try loading a webpage that uses WebGL, the WebGL elements won't display and it'll show a black area where the elements would be, and the only way to fix it is to restart Firefox. This doesn't happen all the time, but it happens enough to be super annoying.

Hey everyone,

When I opened firefox this morning, I was notified of the update 127.0 update. I have auto-update enabled. Since the update, my browser experience has reverted back to 1999, where opening a tab is slow to a crawl, scrolling on (for example) facebook is delayed, and youtube videos keep buffering.

Note: I have a beast PC with 36GB RAM, and a 1000W PSU, yet in my task manager it stays as using almost 4GB of RAM and "Very high" power usage.

I've updated drivers, tried the "firefox safe mode" which had the same issues, and confirmed that this doesn't impact any other of my internet-based activities (like gaming and discord).

I've also run a malware check (deep scan) and found nada.

Lastly, I've tried ye-olde 'turn it off and on again'.

Nothing has helped. Any suggestions? I'd love it firefox had a revert update feature but it does not, which is a huge bummer. Please gimme a hand, 'cause I hate Chrome, which is working just fine.

Whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube, Firefox would automatically set the playback speed to max, mute the audio, and the video would just end (as if someone moved the seek pointer to the end). Since my YouTube is set to automatically play the next video, I would be presented with a screen showing me what the next video would be playing. At this point, I need to do the following:

  1. quickly click cancel
  2. hit the replay button
  3. set the playback speed to anything but normal
  4. set playback speed to normal
  5. unmute audio
  6. move seek pointer back to beginning

From this point on, videos would play normally and I can jump around and watch different videos. But once I close Firefox and restart it, it would reset to the above issues (max playback speed, mute audio, skip first video).

Anyone else having the same problem? Anyone know what's going on?

On a tangent, on my Windows machine, every now and then, Firefox would flash a white blank screen. I would be surfing and reading stuff and all of a sudden, the screen would just go blank. After a few seconds, it would come back. This only happens on my Windows machine and not my Mac.

Almost daily on Firefox, I get pop-ups like the one shown in the attached image. I have, a few times, bought items on MrTortilla's website and that's fine. What I don't want it pop-ups from them daily when I'm not even on their site. Where do I go in Firefox to say, "I'm not open to pop-ups from this site"? Somehow it must be listed as okay. Please don't tell me to delete all cookies because I like the prefills from most of them. If there's a specific cookie I need to delete, please explain how to get to that. Hopefully, it's just a setting somewhere of sites that are allowed to send pop-ups and I can be guided there to remove mrtortilla.com from that list. Thanks!

Just today when I opened private browsing tab on my firefox it opened a new separate window and an icon appeared on the taskbar unlike before where the private window would be one with the firefox icon on the taskbar. I tried the fix of editing the config browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled and turned it to false but still it did not work. I also disabled all my studies but it still is the same. I have attached several screenshots about the problem and solutions I tried.

Since the last Firefox update, I've been unable to to use the tools in Google Image Search (size, color, type etc).

The text and triangles are now no longer clickable. They're all plain text and the triangle doesn't do anything.

The reason I believe this is a Firefox issue is that it's still working properly in Safari (see second image).

Is this something Firefox is working on? Or am I wrong and it's something on my end? Never had an issue before this week and I've been using the same computer with all the same plugins as always.

Hello, On several occasions over the past couple of months, maybe after a recent update, Firefox will not process any web page. In fact, if I try to go to another tab that I had been using, it will not refresh those web pages. However, in most cases, if I try to open in a new window, it works (though it did not just a minute ago). This is very annoying because if you have a couple of tabs open to certain locations, you have to copy down the pages so you don't have to remember where you were in your work. I would imagine that it would be difficult to duplicate but here's my info below. I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Thanks!
