Hello. I ve got a big problem on my Firefox browser. When im using other browsers i dont have this problem, it s only on Firefox, but i love using Firefox and i want to fix it.

Problem which i have shows up on youtube and sometimes on twitch. When im watching youtube video in vp09 format there are absolutely no problems with frames but when a video is in avc1 format - boom i cant watch it because of super frame drops - like a 90% of total frames are dropeed.

Example video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr-zCc9VUto

My pc is not the best but not the worst, i dont think its hardware problem because as i said, on other browser i dont have this problem watching the same video it isnt dropping frames. CPU: Xeon X5450 GPU: GTX 660Ti RAM: 8GB

This problem is with me since about a year, i dont know when it happened. Please help me, how to fix it?

My Firefox just crashed. The usual box appeared to say that it had crashed and it will restart and recover the tabs I had opened.

Unfortunately, it appears to have started completely afresh. No recovered tabs, no extensions, no bookmarks, absolutely nothing.

After reinstalling a couple of extensions, I signed into my Firefox account expecting my bookmarks to be restored but nothing. It's like everything had just been wiped with no warning whatsoever.

I am now at a loss. Everything has gone. Is there any way of restoring my bookmarks? Is there a temp folder of some sort on my system that I may use to recover them?

Thanks very much and hope you can help.

I just need a few simple things from a browser. Things keep changing. I don't want the changes mostly. Why can't you just have a simple browser for simple people. The more advanced can select their more advanced shite. I just looked at a tab and it became another window. I didn't want that. Maybe I moved a pixel. Keep on being arrogant. You are just a bunch of [profanity] really.

Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve!

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.

Since FF updated to v 74 last week, I have not been able to access my Gmail. All other Google apps work OK ( e.g. Maps. Drive, Photos, YouTube, etc.) but not Gmail, Gmail works OK on Chrome and Opera. Gmail was working fine before this last update. All I get now is a blank white page and the FF icon with "New Tab" in the Tab label at the top of the page.

Hello,

Something was altered with the Firefox browser. My default page shows a Google Search bar. When I type something in the bar to do a search and hitting enter then brings up https://search.yahoo.com with my search. I didn't intentionally change anything within Firefox and if I go to the "Options" page under my Firefox page, it shows that my default search engine is Google.

How do I fix my searches to use Google and not use Yahoo?

If I use a different browser like Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, they both use Google search correctly.

This problem just started yesterday August 13, 2020.

I'm on Firefox 79, Windows 10. I get jarred by the new tab navigation behaviour, where Ctrl-Tab brings you to the most recent tab rather than the next tab shown along the top. However, I can see its merits. I would like to be able to use both, effortlessly, without having to delve into the preferences to switch behaviour. Is there a way to do this?
