As of yesterday, 9/4/2022, I cannot access YouTube or search anything on Google. The YouTube issue was supposedly fixed with the most recent Mozilla FF update, but it doesn't seem to be working. I cannot load YouTube or search for videos if the page does load. I cannot reach the Google page and I cannot search using the Google toolbar extensions.

I had a weird firefox icon with what looked like a little computer on it popping in and out of the dock randomly. If I clicked on it, it would open a new window and go to random places I had been on the internet recently. Tried clearing the data and closing/restarting the program and it persisted. I finally rebooted the computer, and it was still there, although it has now magically disappeared. Very annoying.

I tend to stream YouTube and other online video streaming services via Discord and I tend to also have captions enabled but when I Alt Tab to get into the discord call captions do not update. I've tried going into private mode, safe mode and tried a new profile with no dice. Waterfox doesn't have this issue and it wasn't always present in Firefox, at first it happened randomly now it happens all the time. I've also tried other voice chat apps and have confirmed it's not a Discord issue with Firefox.

Any ideas?

Webpages with divs and buttons that hover a consistent space of the screen like taskbars and Reddit's "back to top" button flicker white and jitter around when I try to scroll and I would like to find a quick fix if possible. I am a new user and I've only so far had to touch config settings to fix on hover UI with Twitter. Everything else is default settings and I keep getting forwarded to old bug reports and github pages for web developers when I'm trying to fix it from the user side on multiple common pages like Tumblr and StackOverflow.

OS Version: NAME="Fedora Linux" VERSION="36 (Workstation Edition)" Firefox Version: Version 104.0.1 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Fedora fedora - 1.0

Issue: I have "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" enabled. When I press(and hold) Ctrl+Tab I don't see the thumbnails of the tabs I'm cycling through.

When I create a new profile (on about:profiles) sometimes I get Thumbnails on Ctrl+Tab, sometimes not. Removing all Addons doesn't have an effect.

Does someone know how I could go about debugging this issue?

Hi Firefox,

I'm a native speaker of Hindi and wanted to volunteer at Mozilla's to translate/localize terms in Hindi.

I tried to access the two links given on your contributor page, but those two urls give 404 not found error messages. Here're the links I'm trying to open to join the contributor's group.

1. Any new contributor wants to join Hindi, can join mailing lists of [https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-l10n-hi Hindi Mailing List] and also join Mozilla L10N

How do I volunteer at Mozilla to do translation work in Hindi?

Thanks for your time.

I'm trying to just close and restart firefox from some bash scripts on Linux so that I can manage a few items from various hotkeys.

I'm trying to close an existing Firefox process "cleanly", and am running into issues with how to kill the Firefox process and have it restart without showing the "restore session" page. If I update about:config and override "browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash" to false, then I get the behavior I'm looking for, but I'd rather not have to override this.

I've tried multiple kill signals from the `kill` command, including HUP, STOP, QUIT, TERM, INT, however all of them seem to trigger the same behavior.

So is there a way to cleanly close (or restart) Firefox from the terminal?

Space bar does not function on Huffpost comment section. Sometimes the whole page just jumps either to the top of the page or to the bottom, Weird. Another point, why does Firefox prompt a new update almost every second day. My PC is safe from Malware and my Firewall and paid for VPN is one of the 3 best available. So please don't tell me there could be another reason for this problem about the Space bar button. The Space bar functions perfectly on Windows 10 Edge as well. Even tried it temporarily on Vivaldi. Works fine there too. I moved over to Brave Browser and I have no problem there at all. Functions perfectly. Until Firefox fixes that problem, I have no need to use the Firefox Browser with it's constant annoying updates.

So, I've noticed that if I open a new tab while in full screen (ex: watching a youtube video in full screen) it doesn't automatically select the search bar for me to type in. I know this is a very minor problem, but it really bugs me. Can this be changed from preferences or any other way? Thanks in Advance

Edit: I copied this issue from someone who already raised because this exact thing annoys me too even if it's small one. Is there any solution to this problem?

I'm using Firefox 104 on LInux Mint 19. In settings I have downloads set to the Download folder and "always ask" is checked. However, when downloading a file the dialog opens to some random folder that ff creates under /run/user/1000/doc, every time, and every time I have to navigate to where I actually want to put the file otherwise I'd have to go searching deep into the file system to find it. In earlier versions (I still have a copy of ff 71 installed too) The download dialog opens to the download folder and if I save the file elsewhere the next download opens to the folder where saved the last file. This is the behavior that I want in ff 104. How can I set that up?
