Fire Fox no longer appears on the menu bar. I have to go to programs and open it each time I want to use Fire Fox. It will appear on the menu bar as long as I have it open but leaves the bar if I close it.

Lately, there are times when I try to use Google Products like Maps and nothing happens. I'll type a key word to do a search or type google maps in the Firefox search bar and there is no response. It's not a Google issue as the products will work if I switch browsers. It doesn't happen all the time but has been happening more frequently lately. When it does, I always check to make sure Firefox is up to date. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have fedora 36 Linux on my laptop and I have installed Firefox from the software store. The version in Help>About>About Firefox shows 99.0.1 (64-bit).

I am able to play videos on Youtube but no video or GIF is playing on Twitter/Reddit/Facebook.

I have installed media codecs as per this fedora help

My autoplay setting look like as per the attached image. I do not have any extensions except Bitwarden on Firefox.

I also tried playing videos on Firefox 100 by downloading it directly from firefox website but faced the same issue.

Since the last update videos will no longer play correctly. The video starts and I can hear the audio but I see no video. The content is there. If I hover over the playing time bar at the bottom of the video I can see stills of what would be that part of the video but no video as it plays. Same thing happens in You tube.

I can't get the "Other" bookmarks folder to go away.

I tried right-clicking on the folder & the context menu didn't show up. I tried about:config & changed the value to false. That didn't work.

I closed the browser after changing the boolean value to false & then restarted the browser. That didn't help.

I don't want to mess things up. I can't change the name of the folder. I was hoping that renaming the folder & then deleting it would solve the problem.

How do I hide the "Other" folder & the "Bookmarks Menu" folder?

I have a Mac if that helps any.

I manage two W10 PCs, each with FF installed and fully updated (v100.0). Firefox on Windows has the following bars at the top: 1) the title bar (Firefox…) in Windows style, 2) the edit bar (File Edit History…), 3) the tool bar (customised: eg. Home, Go back, Go forward, Reload, Show Sidebars, Download, Print…), 4) the browser tabs bar containing the open tabs containing a website page.

The problem is that on one PC, the browser tabs bar comes right after the edit bar.

I can't find how to change this, since the solutions are too old or unclear. Please, help.

Following site is immediately hijacked to a scam site asking for login apparently to access private info. It happens with Firefox (only) whenever security setups are set "not to track", "not to prompt for passwords", "not to prompt for credit cards" "no history" "reset of cookies at logout" etc.. then the site below: http://thaimassage-herborn.de/ is redirected to SCAM SITE: https://xb7.serverdomain.org/admin/index.php appearing as "Adminpanel" asking for Login etc..

At the same time following site is partially blocked on the news banner pictures, with a white sheet over them, whenever down scroll is hit. https://www.tgrthaber.com.tr/

Only by resetting firefox deals with the issues. But ofcourse with the reason, above security settings removed.

Virusscanner was not able to detect this hijacking or the reason behind.

Is this a firefox software issue? Is there a way to resolve this? Thank you already for any support or suggestions to resolve.

I have two identical computers running Firefox on Windows 7. No serious issues for 3 years or longer.

Just recently, version 100 showed "Unknown Source" instead of the normal UAC authorization window which lists mozilla.org as the source.

The 100.0.1 update showed the same warning.

This only occurred on one of the computers. The other one does not show the warning.

Firefox worked fine after doing the downloads anyway, but the "Unknown Source" is not right and makes the user think security is being compromised.

I can't no longer use "wetransfer.com" Their homepage does not load properly and no matter what I click on this page it starts using the CPU 100% and slows down everything and nothing happens anymore. I whitelisted this website in all privacy-extensions, and because in a flits I saw that "firefox essentials" was blocking something - despite the whitelist - I uninstalled it. To no avail. Firefox 100.0.1 (64 bits) under Windows 11 home 64 bits. How can I find out what is the problem ? Thanks for helping out.

I tried to log in to my bank and it says "access denied." I may have changed a setting or something on Firefox or my VPN. I'm confused, am not very computer savvy. I went to Apple store last weekend for phone and they said I should use Safari for info security, so I made that default on my Mac Mini (where I'm writing now) for a couple days, but then got blocked from a website where I plan to apply for a job, so I went back to Firefox, after I read articles saying that Firefox is more secure. I am using a VPN, so is that part of the problem ? (shouldn't be, because I have had that for a year or so). I don't know what to do, and it is after 12:45 am now, and I have to go to bed, have to get up for work in 6 hours. I hope someone has some help for me when I log in tomorrow. I hope that I have not been hacked. Thanks for reading!

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

Hi: I've used Firefox for years without trouble and I've even given money! However, I think the last update has prevented my banking site from operating correctly. In Bill payment you choose who you want to pay and fill in the amount. This still works. I move to the month, day, year boxes. If I click, say, on the month box I get a dropdown but selecting the month nothing happens. Ditto with day and year. The day box shows 1 and the year shows 202 and nothing changes when using the drop downs. Can't manually fill in the boxes. At first I thought it was my bank but they said there were no reported problems - they would! So tried Brave and Edge. Both worked perfectly. Tried it on my laptop rather than desktop and same problem using Firefox showed up. I hadn't fiddled with any Firefox settings. What to do? Thanks Donald

Video, including TV-channels is always choppy in Firefox due to disk swapping. I have just refreshed the browser and it did not help to any extent.

However, if I open the same video in Chrome, it is smooth, always (!) And I do not close Firefox - it is still running in parallel to Google's browser, increasing swapping needs of the system (but it is not a problem for Chrome at all).

Please let me know what I can try here. The problem is probably in the method of data caching on disk in Firefox.

Thank you!
