Hi there. I use Firefox in macOS, and I always have multiple windows in different Desktops.

As you know, Desktops in mac are numbered, and each App in the Dock has the option "Assign to" a particular Desktop number or Desktops in Display X. But that is too limiting, because all windows appear in the same Desktop. I'd like an option or Extension in Firefox that allows me to set each Firefox window to a particular Desktop number, so that I don't have to re-organize all my windows every time I restart Firefox.

Does anyone know if there is anything like that?

Previous attempts at troubleshooting documented here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1402451#answer-1561438

As described in the title, automatic email signatures in Outlook Live websites (outlook.live.com and owa's) become gibberish (see attached image). They are unreadable in both text editor and just email visualizer. The issue is not limited to the latest version (109.0).

As described before: Whenever I restart Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, it solves the problem. But disabling all extensions and restarting Firefox does not. Disabling "Use hardware acceleration when available" and "Use recommended performance settings." and restarting also does not solve the problem. Restarting Firefox (not in Troubleshoot mode) sometimes solves the issue, as well as right after an update of the app; but not always. Starting Firefox after a computer restart usually brings the problem back. This problem also happens in my laptop (MacBookPro), so it is not restricted to this computer (macMini).

I would really appreciate some support.

My Firefox keeps doing weird glitches and I recently updated to a Windows 11 laptop, instead of using a windows 10 one, and both have had the same issue with this glitch.

I'm unsure what to do- and as shown in the attached screenshot all text has been all messed up and it with all tabs and not just a singular one and I'm unsure what to do besides restart my computer.

I've allowed all stuff so hopefully this can help someone with answering this.

For the last couple of months I have had problems streaming some of the channels that come via Sling when I try to watch them on my Dell Latitude E5450 laptop. I can see them fine on my regular t.v. but now not on the laptop. That's a huge change in the last few months because for years I could stream every Sling channel to my laptop. Since my t.v. does not use Firefox, that suggests the problem is something Firefox has done. Not surprising, I guess. Probably happened when it was fixing some other something it screwed up. Nonetheless, any ideas for how to resolve this WITHIN Firefox capabilities? (And don't suggest it's Sling's fault. Sling streams just fine, thank you very much, in Edge.)

Hello,

I have recently been having difficulties with my Firefox Bookmark bar at the top of the screen.

The addresses change and I cannot use them. They look different. I just updated them a day ago and they've already gone back to this look and don't work anymore.

Please see screenshot.

Thank you.

This relates to this issue

I found a batter way to solve that problem.

You should install or reinstall one of the packages xdg-desktop-portal* List them on Ubuntu with:

 ```apt list | grep desktop-portal```

And try to install:

 ```sudo apt-get install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome```

or reinstall:

 ```sudo apt-get --reinstall install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome```

It seems you need to rerun DBus to apply changes, but I just restarted my PC.

If xdg-desktop-portal-gnome won't help then try to install/reinstall xdg-desktop-portal-gtk and xdg-desktop-portal.

Hey, guys!

Does Firefox provides us with an option to group the tabs. I tried finding it in Firefox Tab's content menu and Settings but couldn't. I tried the Simple Tab Groups add-on but didn't like it. I want to groups the tabs and want them in the tabs section just like How Google Chrome does it?

After updating to 109.0 Firefox won't open on primary monitor. I have moved it, closed it, but it restarts back on secondary monitor. After I move it to primary monitor, if I open another browser window it opens on the primary. I have renamed the xulstore.json file(so it creates a new one) but that did not help. It was working fine before the 109.0 update. I also have chrome installed and it works fine the way it should, so I'm thinking it is a Firefox 109.0 problem.

Ever since upgrading to the latest browser (109.0) I cannot login into both of my facebook accounts. One works fine, but the other one, when I input the credentials, goes to the first account. It only does this on firefox v 109.0. I tried them both using Opera, and they both work fine. What did you people do? Are you saving my logins improperly? If so, WHY?? Fix this problem or lose a very long time customer.

The RAM of my device is about 4GB, which is not a lot, but the performance of the browser is very correct and fast, but in some cases, when loading pages, the browser freezes for a short moment, this is a bit annoying. The next problem in the web developer version is that the writing indicator is displayed everywhere in the browser, especially on the home page, when you click it, you need to disable this item on the home page. The browser is visible. Finally, the RAM consumption of the device needs to be optimized and slightly reduced

  1. 1 When I open firefox there is a bookmarks toolbar displayed at the top.
  1. 2 When I go Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > click Bookmarks Toolbar > the bookmarks don't match what I see in the browser in #1 above.

How do I fix this?

I uploaded a screen shot of the browser toolbar and the application bookmarks toolbar.

Do you see that they are not the same in my attached image?

The browser tool bar has PurpC after FamilyS. Application (in manage book marks) the bookmarks toolbar has LFTWeb after FamilyS. I want the browser to match what is in the application Bookmark Toolbar.

I have turned sync off, that caused the issue in the first place. I had a recent saved bookmark file, that matches what is in the application, it is not updating the toolbar in the browser.

Thanks, Stacey

I thought I'd give the Foxfire a try on my Windows 10 laptop, so I downloaded and created an account, etc. All worked fine until I tried to use my desktop shortcuts to open Chrome, Google Photos and Gmail. Non would open. I then opened Google and found my sync was off. I tried to sign in and could not sign into my Google Account, I then spent several hours with Google support trying to find the problem. At last, it allowed me to sign in and restore all my Google account items. I then uninstalled Firefox as I didn't want to go thru this problem again.

Does anyone know why this occurred and how to avoid it again if I were to want to reinstall Foxfire?

Thanks for the help.

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. How do I get the autofill to start working again

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11. I downloaded Firefox. When browsing in Firefox it has several times caused the whole screen to go black, and the only way to get back is to turn off and turn on again. Even then the Firefox page sometimes comes up again and I have to be quick to tap the X on top right to shut it down - or the whole screen goes black again! Then when I restart Firefox it re-loads the page, so I have to quickly exit before it happens again. So this morning when it happened I just did a full restart of the PC. Then I transferred all my tabs and other info to Edge, and will use that from now on.

What is new that is causing Firefox to do this?

I imagine I could also use Chrome, haven't tried that yet.
