I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

I've noticed that every now and then I come across a website that doesn't function properly. For instance, right now when I try to browse https://www.parts-express.com/ the page will load, but when I try to view things by clicking on the menu, it will stay on the same page. I've had to use another browser to search this site.

Another thing I've come across is paying for things. A few times already I've tried to make a purchase and it would not go through. I called one of the places and they said it was because I was using Firefox. The payments went through when using a different browser.

Is this common? Is there something I can do to make Firefox work universally?

Any link or button which is processed with Javascript causes firefox to hang. Its window doesn't responsing, however, after some seconds, a small window (that seems like a js-alert window) is shown. This window has 2 buttons, but there's no text in a whole window. Window's title in taskbar is just "Untitled window". If i close this window, firefox hangs again for a few seconds (the main window is having artifacts of other windows until that small window will be shown again)

In certain cases, after i kill the main window process, there is appeared the requested by link window.

I've got these bugs on Gmail options page, for example (but that trouble finding me everywhere on the net, on forums, sites, portals etc.)

I've tried to disable all the plugins, remove my ~/.mozilla, rebuilding firefox – no results.

Firefox is built on Gentoo linux OS. `emerge --info firefox` can be found here: http://pastie.org/1318950

Here are some screenshots: http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/86fd071c0143d6977f9bce91585da346.png http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/128419a536bec6e65a940e0546aa6741.png

--- Sorry for my english, guess there are a lot of mistakes again, right?

Hi there,

This website's really twisting my mind: I posted some question some time ago and there is no way to get back to it because my dashboard is empty and there is no apparent link to the questions section of this website. Thanks to Google I sneaked my way through https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions and then only I could find my question again.

Turning in circles again and again on a website is not nice for the end user. I know you seem to want people to go through your troubleshooting process---which I can understand, but all I want is to review my already asked question.

It would be nice if you added some link somewhere---if I missed it, please point it out to me.

Regards, Benjamin

Basically I have Never Remember History enabled, and each time I open FF there's data in 'Cookies and Site Data'. Under 'Cookies and Site Data' it will say there's a bit of data (in the photo is says 16Kb, which is pretty typical). If I look under 'manage cookies and site data' there will be nothing there. Sometimes the cookies or cache or whatever is bigger if the last time I used that profile I was watching videos, at most it will be a couple Mb's maybe. If I wipe it out, it will go to 0Kb, and then for the rest of the profile session, even if I have a bazillion tabs open, it will say 0, but then there's always a cache there the next time I start that profile.

What is it? Why is there always a small amount of data in the 'Cookies and Site Data' section each time I restart a profile?

I'm currently running version 68.2.0esr on Debian Linux version 5.3.0-1-amd64. Extension: uBlock Origin 1.23.0

                 uMatrix 1.4.0
                 Canvasblocker 0.5.14.

Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (disabled) Version 1.8.1.1

              Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Version 4.10.1440.19

I have web history turned off ('Never Remember History'), trackers blocked, cookies enabled w/ third party disabled, auto search engine update turned on, Do Not Track enabled, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' enabled by default (b/c history is off). I might have changed a few tiny things in about:config but nothing I remember offhand. Any other system info I can look up in need be.

Linux 7.8.2003. Just did yum update. Firefox was updated. My customization (menu bar on) was OK. Running it, my bookmarks appear as before, but clicking on one, nothing happens. Ditto Help menu, where I tried to see Firefox version number. Just now, I tried again, by accident holding mouse button down instead of clicking on Bookmarks or Help, move pointer to desired option, release button. This amazingly works. So I can tell you version of Firefox is 68.7.Oesr (64-bit). (I usually use NoScript, but disabled it for this test, same result.) I am sending this help request from a different machine, so did not click Share Data.

Is it just me or is it impossible to click on links and stay on the same tab? Or am I now doomed to have 20 tabs open while searching for stuff on ebay, ect? Did firefox just make the forward and back navigation buttons useless because firefox is going to open a new page or tab every time we click on anything?

Hello.

I got a little problem with firefox starting with somewhat broken window layout on my Ubuntu 20.04 desktop with KDE desktop environment. Tried to google for it unsuccessfully, so here I am. Whenever I start firefox after cold boot or a full reboot, it runs like on a screenshot. The workaround for fixing that is to resize window and then make it maximized again. I am not quite sure, is it a problem of browser, video driver, or desktop environment, but it occurs for me only on firefox.

  • Appeared several versions ago, present on current version I use: 89.0.2 (64-bit)
  • Does not appear when i load windows 10 on this PC.
  • Video card: Nvidia 1660S driver ver.460

Does anyone heard of that problem? Would be glad to know any details to address this problem.

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

Hi,

searching for bookmarks (with sidebar) is no problem. There are several cases where I look, if something or similar had been bookmarked already. With this I want to avoid doubling/tripling/'moreling' bookmarks. But if I find something already bookmarked, I do not know in my about 1000 bookmarks where the bookmark is located. I tried to show properties of the found bookmark but it does not tell where it is placed. So I would have to look manually about 100 folders to find where the bookmark is located.

The most easy solution I think, would be indicating the place of the bookmark when showing settings of bookmark. On hovering over the found bookmark in a third line of popup could be told the location of this bookmark and would be visually more pleasant I think.

Else I have to put the bookmark doubled in a more visible location and delete the bookmark found by search. This workaround works but is not intuitive and bothersome (and costs much more time).

As this solution would be easy to implement, I hope, this can be implemented 'soon'. I think, this would help many others, too. (At least I heard from several others in my environment, that they miss such a thing.)

Not forgetting, thanks for the great browser, Niels

I provide online assistance for a specific group of clients. I am finding myself repeatedly writing almost the exact same paragraphs. Which Add-on would allow me to simply populate a field on a page with the exact text -- I'm hoping to set up 20 or 30 responses that I can just select instead of having to retype everything. Thanks for any guidance.

I am a web site designer. I have on my computer Linux's Krusader file manager, which allows me to copy files to my web host's server. Normally, when I do that and have renewed the page on Firefox, the page showing in Firefox accurately reflects the change that I have copied to my web host's server. Lately, regardless of clearing the cache, exiting Firefox and coming back in, the page showing on Firefox continues to be the old page without the change.
