I was able to get rid of remembered user id data in Chrome (delete site data) with no problems, but have tried all I can find in Firefox with no luck. Please tell me how to do it. There is no saved login data in Firefox and deleting site data does not help. Thanks, John.

Two computers. Both computers name version of Firefox and same version Of Windows 10. On computer 1 drag and drop no longer works. I can click star next url and manually to bookmark toolbar. I also cannot reorder on tool bar by dragging and dropping by selecting.

How do I know I'm doing it correctly? On computer 2 it works exactly as should. Click on padlock and drop or click on entry and toolbar and reorder. Same extensions etc and do not have a bookmark extension though have tab session manager. Same version both computers. Only difference in browser is number of tabs open. x 10 difference in number of tabs open computer 1 versus 2.

If I put firefox in troubleshoot mode with extensions etc off or create a brand new profile and try same problem.

As the title says when I am using the video player on Coursera website I am not able to hide the control bar while on fullscreen mode (even if I don t move my mouse for more than 15 seconds). I ve attached a screenshot with the control bar being displayed. (also the captions are overlapping with that control bar) I ve also tried different ways of opening the fullscreen mode (click on the "Full Screen" button or by pressing 'F'). I don t have this problem on websites like YouTube.

Hi,

I tried to visit the following pages in Firefox 121 (running under Arch Linux) and they took minutes to load. They loaded in a fraction of a second in Chromium. Anyone have any idea what is wrong?

The blogger page is here: https://u-blox-ninaw-platformio.blogspot.com/2022/03/u-blox-nina-w-e-platformio-arduino.html

Here are a few forums that take minutes to load, I think they use the same engine as I see the same colorful loading animation: https://community.platformio.org/t/error-please-specify-upload-port/26218 https://forum.manjaro.org/

Does anyone have any idea what is happening or what I should do to alert the development team? Are these sites using technology not implemented in Firefox?

Best Regards,

Kevin

Can anyone help me out and others on this matter? several months ago appears FB decided to screw everyone over by arbitrarily forcing auto refresh. If you're reading something long and or have to step away for a moment it is gone.

Some have posted for chrome they have an extension that stopped it. The only one on FF does not work. I tried it, does nothing at all. Time for FF to fix this issues allowing you to turn it on or off at my will.

Thanks Mike

Firefox changed the design on tabs and other features some time back. The whole user experience has been worse since the UX design was changed. For example, it's impossible to find out without going through tab after tab, which one is active and playing. I wish there was an option to reverse back to the old design.

I am accessing my ISP to download the security software. I need to be able to select the Operating System. When I click on the drop down box I am prompted for the OS, but when I select it the drop down box does not populate. I then get a message to select the OS. This works with Microsoft Edge.

Suddenly, yesterday when I opened my Microsft Outlook app, all is see is HUGE letters filing my entire desktop computer screen. As you can see in photo below, there is no way I can rea email this way. Same today. When I try another browser (Edge) the Outlook screen opens just fine, so it looks like a problem with Firefox.

I don't want to have to use Edge as a browser - I like Firefox!

I don't know how to fix this in Firefox. I don't rememebr making any changes to the programme - but I do undertake regular updates.

Preferences in user.js are added permanently to prefs.js and persist even after user.js is deleted. What if you want to specify preferences in a file, just like with user.js, but you don't want them to be made permanent? In other words, so that when the file is deleted, the prefs will be forgotten. Is there any way to do this?

Yes, I know addons exist for it but many work places don't allow installing addons, security wise they can be a concern and these addons have poor UI/UX. I am genuinely considering using Edge over Firefox due to them having better tab groups which I never though I would say. Please implement a simple tab folder, literally just what current Edge has. It is a very useful basic feature and I would really love to have it included in my favorite browser I have been using for over a decade. Thank you.

I started with Netscape, lived through Mozilla and then been FF ever since. I love it. But increasingly, I am running into problems with using features in many websites.

For instance with Cigna Health, you can't reset your pw and open certain other links. Cigna Support has a simple solution which has always solved my problem: use Chrome or Edge.

B&H Photo Video mostly works but for instance if you are looking at the pictures associated with a product review and try to enlarge them, FF won't do it. Chrome and Edge do it.

I am finding more and more websites that have these glitches. It's almost as if some website designers are not paying any attention to compatibility of their product with FF.

Am I missing something in the config of FF or are these issues real and likely to get worse over time? I am very worried that if it continues that I will get a message like "Many features on this website are not compatible with FireFox."

I am not a programmer but if there is anything I can do to help, I am glad to do so.

I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of this BROWSER HIJACKER. It just seems that I can't get rid of it. When I try a simple search on the search bar, it redirects to "BING". I just tried searching travel, and this is where it took me: "https://www.bing.com/search?ptag=ICO-86655dbd68d344bb&form=INCOH1&pc=1AWL&q=TRAVEL"

I don't have anything against MIcrosoft, but don't want to always go to a BING site. Once I hit the enter button, it says "redirecting....." Anyone know of an answer for me?

Thank YOU! Ross L.
