Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

Recently, one website (SF Chronicle) started automatically scrolling to the bottom of the page when I access an article. Occurs on no other sites nor on my other devices - only an my Dell desktop running windows 11 and the most recent version of Firefox.

When I follow a link to read an article I briefly see the heading but then it immediately scrolls down to the bottom of the page and I have to manually scroll back to the top of the page to read the article.

I see no microphone on in the address bar for Firefox. I read that it is supposed to be (standard feature?) on the left side. How do I restore or enable this feature? For good measure, would someone please send me an image (snip& sketch?) of the address bar showing what this looks like. First time posting so I don't even know if one can attach or include images in a reply.

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

Previously, when I printed something from the internet, the current date always printed at the bottom of the page, which is what I wanted. That way I knew when I printed it for future use. Now, I can't get the date to print on anything from the internet. I'm using the same Epson WF2860 printer so nothing has changed with it. Can someone help me?

I would really like a feature where I can highlight content within PDFs like in Edge. It's really helpful because I usually store PDFs temporarily, and it doesn't make enough sense to download each and every PDF I have to work with. The 'draw' tool isn't particularly helpful when you're working on a Mac 24/7 with no other devices except an iPhone. I've attempted using Yawas, but it doesn't work in the native PDF viewer because it isn't a website!

Please help...

hey, on websites like tumblr, hyperbeam, and other sites with video embeds or streaming, i keep having problems with the videos stuttering in one place and i usually have to refresh for it to fix. i don't have any extensions that interact with videos other than i guess ublock, and it only happens on sites where i do NOT get ads with videos. here's a gif of the glitch:

For the past week or so, Firefox has been resetting the tab I am using. The whole tab will suddenly go blank except for blank placeholders for buttons, frames, etc., after which a few seconds later the tab reloads. If I was watching a video, that video is still there but has been reset to the start. There does not seem to be any particular trigger (I read another thread from about a year ago in which another user described the same problem.) I have never seen this kind of random reset/reload behavior in Firefox. Let me know if there is a way to collect more information if possible. Thanks for your time.
