Hello! Like many before me, the tabs crash every time I got to YouTube. The only message I get is

"Gah. Your tab just crashed. We can help! Choose Restore This Tab to reload the page." This option does NOTHING to solve the issue.

Not sure why, but I've never had this issue before until about a week ago. I don't want to use another browser. I prefer Firefox.

I am currently using Firefox 121.0.

Any information/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hello!

I can't figure out what setting to fix this: every time I click to open a new window, about 35 tabs automatically open up that I have closed several times in the past. I simply want one new window without any previously opened tabs.

I've tried:

  • clearing my entire search history several times
  • shutting down Firefox and reopening (which opens up all those tabs)
  • uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it
  • initiating the latest Firefox updates
  • restarting my computer
  • turning my computer on and off
  • looking through every single preference in my Firefox settings (I've unchecked anywhere it talks about opening tabs)
  • reading various articles on Firefox's support page and on other support websites to try to figure this out (there's little info on this problem; the support is mostly about how to save previously opened tabs

Please help! I'm tired of having to close down all these tabs every single time I have to restart my computer or have to shut down Firefox. It slows down everything I'm trying to do.

Thank you!

Good morning,

I am reaching out as a member of Iowa State University's LTI Integration Team regarding a technical issue we are currently experiencing.

Specifically, we have encountered JSON errors when utilizing various LTI's from Canvas, but the problem is isolated to the Firefox browser only.

I have attached a screenshot that demonstrates the error in question.

Could you kindly assist us in troubleshooting this matter? Any guidance or support you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Best regards,

If I search "lemmy", I want to see that in the URL instead of the full search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. It makes it easier to copy the search query. If the query has spaces than they're written with +s in the URL. I remember months ago this ended up being the default even for pre-existing Firefox profiles, but then it was changed back.

I and my wife both use Macbook Pros. Hers is "old" (2018), mine is "new" (2023). On Sunday Jan 7 2024 I updated Mac OS on her "old" laptop. The update summary said, "This request came from Firefox on Mac OS X 10.15." (see screenshot) and recommended security changes. We were not using Mac OS X before the update. The "old" laptop is working normally as far as I see. I am writing this request from the "new" laptop. What's going on? Is the "old" laptop compromised? If so, what do I need to do? Thanks!

Hi,

I attend Berklee online and the learning environment has videos as well as empty spaces to write answers and text. Whenever I enter the empty space to write text, every press of the spacebar starts and stops multiple videos on that page.

Their strict advice is to use Chrome, but that is the last thing I want to do.

Hello,

I use the Firefox browser on my phone and laptop, and have Lockwise on my phone where all the passwords are stored. Until yesterday, all these passwords would always appear in my Firefox browser stored passwords. Now, they only show up in Lockwise on my phone and do not show up in the phone or Laptop Firefox browser.

I have followed this guide: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-of-support-firefox-lockwise and am syncing passwords across devices, but this did not solve the problem.

Has anyone else encountered this and know how to fix it?

Thank you.

I change nothing in my settings and I am now on Dark background everywhere despite having: - forced the system settings (OS) to stay in light background - in about:preferences appearance I've manually selected (forced) the light background - in about:config I've tried to switch the browser.theme.content-theme to "1" (instead of "0")

this is really frustrating, I would like to get a better "reading" of what happens, as an Engineer I am happy to also squint at logs if needed, please consider adding a preference / settings change log file

When I want to go to the NY Times, and i type "nyt" the address bar automatically populated with the rest of the URL "nytimes.com". When I do the same thing with gmail and "gmail" it runs a search on a search engine instead of completing the rest of the URL.

Why would it do this for one website and not another? How do I fix this, I use gmail all the time so its a bit of a time waster.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I am unable to login to any website using the "Sign in with Apple ID" option when offered. The login window opens normally, the username and password fields render properly, but then as soon as I hit enter or click login. The confirmation/page with the two buttons one grey one blue that says "continue" appears for a split second and then vanishes. I have turned of all forms of content blocking and the issue still persists.

The removal of the download status bar at the bottom of the browser is a major UI failure and this feature needs to be returned.

I spent 30 minutes attempting to download/extract a settings file from an Addon until I noticed that Firefox was silently downloading it to my Downloads folder without any notification that it had started or completed.

The download bar was a known solution for this; The bar itself did not obscure the current webpage, provided immediate feedback on download initiation, progress, and completion. Provided quick access to open the file(s) or find options about the file(s), and the download bar could be dismissed quickly if the vertical page space was required/desired.

The hidden download tray is a horrible design idea, makes it difficult to see if your downloads have started successfully, when they have completed, and how to access them. Additionally, the introduction of 'hint' popups to support this feature actively obscure the webpage you're viewing, making them dramatically worse than the download bar, which left the page completely usable and only required a few pixels of height at the bottom.

This is a major design flaw.

I am having a problem with my Firefox homepage. There are several things going on like the red, yellow and green dots on the left side of the menu change to light dark. Some of My Bookmarks appears twice and one was added. I did a Refresh and troubleshooting but to see if my home page would go back to normal but it did not. I think I have a bug that is causing these changes on my Mozilla Browser. I need to get the browser back to normal.
