Yahoo Mail will not allow me to connect using Firefox 8.0.2 and returns the error "The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail." The link for downloading Firefox just takes me to the same version I'm running. I can start the "basic Mail" but it's awful. This problem does not occur when using Chrome. I have tried starting Firefox in Safe mode but the error still occurs. Is anyone else having this problem?

Hello Community ~

I have many, many open browser windows with multiple tabs. Is there a way to save the windows that I am not immediately using. The competitor browser offers such a feature where one can just click the browser window off to the side, and when reclicked the window with all the tabs pops open for use. Everything is saved but it does not open automatically (which I don't need it to) on startup. I hope that was concise?

Thank You and Kindest Regards ~

I am a DirecTV customer and should be able to watch programs on my Win10 device, but Firefox disagrees. On the DirecTV site, when I click Watch Now, it wants to install the DTV player. When Firefox is redirected to the download page, it throws a certificate error and screeches to a halt. I would expect an opportunity to assume the risk and continue, but none is offered. I opened MS Edge, which I don't want to use, and it installed the viewer, no problem. This is the URL from which FF is redirected : https://www.directv.com/Channels/Fox-Business-Network-HD-359?modal=/modal/install/359/channe. This is the URL of the error : https://metrics.directv.com/b/ss/dtvdirectvcomprod/4/REDIR?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdirectv.vo.llnwd.net%2Fe5%2Fcinema%2Fplugin%2FVideoGuard.13.0.exe&pe=lnk_d&pev1=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.directv.com%2FChannels%2FFox-Business-Network-HD-359%3Fmoda%3D%2Fmodal%2Finstall%2F359%2Fchannel&pev2=DIRECTV_Player_13.. Screen shot of the error uploaded. Any help would be appreciated.

Whenever I go into a google meet for school, it doesn't work the same as it did on Microsoft Edge or Chrome. In Firefox, I keep getting disonnected at random times and some parts of the page are completely broken. I've sent a lot of messages using the feedback button in google meets, but they seem to be doing nothing. I don't want to switch to Chrome or Microsoft Edge anytime because Firefox is the best. Please help, thanks.

Hi I use Roll20 on Firefox and when Firefox updated my popouts went from small fitted windows to full width popouts which are unable to be resized, I would like to continue to use firefox for my online browser but this new glitch is making it unusable. Do you have any advice as to how I would fix it? I need them to popout to move them to my second screen, I purposely bought two monitors for this option.

Tiktok and YouTube bypass my Firefox autoplay settings. By default, I set Firefox to disable autoplay of audio and video. I seldom use the website, but when I do, it blasts music at me the moment I visit the site. As a headphone user, that's really annoying!

To a lesser degree, YouTube does as well. If I'm not subscribed to a channel, it will autoplay the channel's featured video on the Home tab. Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinaeyckvideos

For sport, I use Strava, Garmin Connect, Komoot, Runkeeper that all use embedded maps. They use either openstreetmap or google. On the main google maps, I can pan the map (click the map, hold it and then move the view), on the embedded maps within these website, I cant navigate by clicking and dragging. (It is the same on the main openstreetmap site (although this is how it is supposed to work, when i try the same in the chrome browser it does work).

When I try it in chrome, the panning works for these site. There must be some mouse setting that I am missing.

I already tried restarting firefox with all addons off and turning off hardware acceleration.

cheers, Gerard

I had to restore my hard drive and lost the icon short cut to one of my email accounts. I tried creating a new short cut following Firefox Help; however, the instructions are inaccurate or out of date. There is no "icon on the left of the address bar". Alternatively I discovered that I could drag another part of the email display and create an icon for the email service but it is created as an Edge Chromium (damn Microsoft!) which was just installed via a Microsoft update. From my research I discovered that Microsoft has so embedded Edge Chromium that removing it runs the risk of making the OS unstable. My question: is there a way were I can create an icon for my email service that will launch in Firefox and not Edge Chromium?

There is no option to add new tab(s) between a specific location. From specific location, I intended to add a new tab between two tabs, not at the end of all the tabs. To make it more understandable, here is a scenario:

For example, on my Firefox browser, following tabs are opened in the order as follows: Tab1, Tab2, Tab3, Tab4, Tab5, Tab6.

Now, I wanted to add a Tab7, but not at the end, as it happens usually. I want to add it between Tab2 and Tab3 directly without manually dragging it in between and hence I want to get the following order:

Tab1, Tab2, Tab7, Tab3, Tab4, Tab5 and Tab6.

Unlike other browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Chromium, I feel this is a subtle feature which is missing in Firefox. In those browsers, you can just directly right-click on the opened tab and click "New Tab", which adds a new tab in between the opened tab and the adjacent one.

I really wish this feature is provided as soon as possible on Firefox too.

Thank You. Regards, VIVEK.
