Function of backspace key: As me many people prefere to use the backspace key to move one page back when browsing a website (navigating with the keyboard is more healthy than using the mouse all the time). After updating to version 87.0 this does not work any longer. Is there any way to get this functionality back?

Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Greetings: My computer was shutdown and restarted by a colleague and I seem to have lost my browsing history and all the open tabs from my last session are not retrievable — restore previous session is not available / appears grey'd out. I am on a macbook pro running Big Sur and I do have a time machine backup of that last session — can I get back those open tabs and browser history from my time machine? Can I do it a la carte or do I need to wipe my whole computer and restore from there? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Sam

I am using Firefox 87 with windows 10. Autofill passwords has always worked, suddenly it no long fills in the password. I have all the correct checks for autofill logon and autofill password, and for FF to ass for both of them on a new site. the information is properly listed in the program list.

I have tried everything i could think of , went to about;config made sure the settings were correct, asked help support page and forums. tried everything tried tried everything what was suggested to solve issue, BUT autofill password still does not work, i have thought of using another program manager, but not sure if that is a good idea thank you very much I sure could use some help with this............ Only other thing i can think is resetting FF but still not sure that would work either. Allen Millner allen-tina@comcast.net

Please help. I was trying to download a file from MediaFire, and a popup appeared. I tried to close it, but another one opened up. They were all trying to install an extension and saying "update Firefox" I accidentally clicked on one. It didn't do anything, but panicking, I Alt + F4'd a bunch of times and when I saw that they kept reopening, I shut off the computer. I came back, and I have no new programs, extensions or suspicious looking processes. As I'm writing this, Windows Defender is running a full scan.

Am I infected?

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

I downloaded and installed the firefox app and nothing happens. No menu. No tabs. The word "firefox" appears in the upper left corner of my screen and a "." appears under the app, indicating that it is open. The screen "blinked" momentarily when I opened the app. I am a longtime user of Firefox and this same thing happened this morning when I opened the app, which I uninstalled, and then downloaded and installed this new app. Same problem.

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

I use portableapps FF on windows 10. I just updated to 89 from 82 and now all my menus in the toolbar (i.e. my bookmarks as folders) now are much longer due to extra space between each item. Where I didn't have to scroll before I do now.

How can I change it back to what it was before so the pulldown menus I've tailored with no scrolling required will again work as before.

I have gone back to 82 because of this.
