I used this tablet for many years and got lots of bookmarks on my browser, but recently its antenna stopped working. I did some research and found out you can export the bookmarks from firefox even if you cant connect to the internet to use the sync functionality. I rooted the phone, copied the browser.db file from firefox and exported the bookmarks table with SQLite Browser. I read on some verry old (6-8 Years ago) threads on this forum that they imported the bookmarks.csv they got from the db in excel, then modified it in some sense and then exported it to a html file to import that in firefox. I did everything to where i have the whole table in excel, only need to know what i need to modify in it.

A website I read news on a regular basis, FOXBusiness.com, auto refreshes which is super annoying when you read even worse if you write a comment.

The recommended setting accessibility.blockautorefresh true accessibility.blockautorefresh true

Have no effect on this particular website and it continues to do its auto refresh. I contacted their so-called "support" but never received a reply.

Anyone know how to prevent this "do not auto refresh" setting being bypassed by a website thus continuing to do periodical auto refresh?

Today is October 2, 2022. Firefox became noticeably slower about 4 to 6 weeks ago. There were problems with YAHOO! Mail, for example. It was particularly noticeable when I would be watching one YouTube video and then would click on the image/icon of a different video, trying to change to & open the new video. E.g., NBC or CBS videos, like "Jimmy Kimmel" shows, etc. A couple of days ago, I opened Windows 10(TM) Task Manager, and used "End Task" to shut off Dropbox instances. I then uninstalled Dropbox. I did that to prevent Dropbox from running in the background [and I don't need it, anyway]. That seemed to help. I have also switched to Firefox "Troubleshoot Mode" -- that seemed to help, somewhat, but not necessarily in every case.

 Yesterday, there were problems opening MyADP (to view salary pay stubs) with Firefox [in regular mode].  The application just seemed to be "stuck" while trying to open the view to payment listing.  So, this morning, I ran MS-Edge(TM), and MyADP opened properly and operated with no problems.
   Is it possible that some MS-Windows 10(R) update is causing problems with Firefox?

Moments ago, I opened YAHOO! mail in a separate, new tab, and logged-in quickly, without a problem. I'm happy about that.

  I just opened another tab, easily started the video.  However, clicking on a different video's icon -- the result is that the YouTube red line only moves left to right about 2/3 of the way across the screen, and the newly-selected video does not load.  Clicking repeatedly on the different video's icon seems to "clog" YouTube to the point that the message, "Connect to the internet.  You are offline.  Retry", appears.

So, I'm a bit puzzled. What do you suggest, please?

  Thank You in Advance, 

Dave

Good morning, There are multiple questions. 1. Now everytime I click on a link in an article it opens a completely different page of firefox instead of just making a tab on the line with all the other tabs. It also loads that new page half way off the screen on the right hand side and I have to drag it over, open it full sized and then screw around with cutting and pasting the url into a new tab on the old firefox page. How do I stop it from doing this? It's realllllly annoying.

2. It is screwing up some of my graphics by putting horizontal lines into the picutres to where you can't view it. Specifically on jigsaws from jigsawplanet.com. I work on a gaming site and this really impacts my ability to do my job (or have fun).

3. One one particular site HEXrpg.com, I set my view at 120% and every page I go it it reverts it back to 100%. This did NOT used to happen and it only seems to be happening on that particular site..... However, it could be on other sites as I've had to set my entire computer to 120% now so I can read the posts on that one site and now everything is too big for my screens in the other sites.

I don't know what you guys were trying to do, but whatever it was, can you please put it back to the way it was before this last (possibly last 2) updates. If not I'm going to have to switch to Edge or Chrome and I really don't want to have to do this because I've been with Firefox forever. HELP!?! Deborah DeVane

Hello,

I'm currently trying to disable the media overlay when playing audio, videos and so on. Going to about:config and setting media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false does indeed fix the problem, except I now can't use the buttons on my keyboard to pause and unpause.

Recap: setting media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled removes the overlay but also disables keyboard buttons to pause and unpause.

Is there a solution for this?

I mark student scripts, doc, docx and pdf, many of which are downloaded in a 2-3 day marking session. So opening the files needs to be easy and slick. But it doesn't work well any more - even worse than previously. How can I get Firefox to download and open the file automatically when clicking on the link? "They" seem to be putting barriers in the way of efficient working.

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

From time to time i need to log into my ISP's website portal, yet from today which is since the update yesterday) it will not allow me to it has my log in details saved correctly, but when i try to log in the sit it says they are incorrect, which they are not.

At first I thought the issue was with my ISP's website, so I was on the phone to them and together we tried crhome and edge and the log ins worked just fine, but not with the Firefox browser.

So sadly either something you changed in that update seems to be messing with the log in on this site and possibly others or possibly one of the add ons I use with it together with the browser is now causing an issue and is interferring I wouldn't have the first clue.

I ran into an issue with the Alpenglow extension conflicting with the Dark Mode extension.

On version 105.0.1 (It may happen on other versions, it's just that I only tested it on that version.), all of the default themes, ran into defaults where they tend to fallback to the Default Dark Theme, which, while totally usable, is not the theme I wanted. The Alpine Theme was the theme that I tested with first, but it's actually also an issue on the Light theme as well. Both themes tested were official themes that were made by Mozilla, not a third-party.

I have looked up every variation of this question under the goddamn sun, and all I can ever find is "how can I KEEP audio playing after I lock my phone screen?"--which is not what I'm looking for.

Long story short, I've been using YouTube on the Firefox browser app because it has ad block and I refuse to pay for YouTube premium just to get rid of the insidious amount of ads the app has that I can't be rid of otherwise. It's not as good at the app, I'll admit, but there's no intrusive ads trying to sell me crap, so I'm willing to deal with the downsides.

The problem is that audio from YouTube in the Firefox app on Android continues to play if it was playing when I locked the screen, or if I was playing audio in my car and the app was never exited (so to speak) before I locked the screen, audio will either keep playing in the former case, or it will start playing as soon as the bluetooth connects to my car again once I get back in and turn it on.

How do I STOP this from happening? There's no settings within the app or my phone (that I can find) that will help with this. I don't know if it's a Firefox issue or an issue with my phone, but the audio thing doesn't happen with ANY other app I have. Only Firefox, and it's driving me crazy. I don't know how to keep it from doing so without the added step of making sure I close the app before I lock the screen, but I don't always remember to do so, and that's the problem. Please help me, because I'm almost about to give up on this app, too.

If it's relevant and it'll help, I have a Samsung Galaxy S22+.
