I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

Hello.

Since updating to Firefox 89, I have been experiencing problems playing videos shared on Google Drive. (The problem occurred in the Devloper Edition of version 89, and version 89 was released to regular Firefox without a solution. When I start playing a video in Google Drive, it plays fine for the first few minutes, but then suddenly the video stops and the video screen goes black, and there is no response when I press the play button. The only solution to this is to reload the web page, but this is very inconvenient as the video stops in the middle and when you reload again it starts playing from the beginning.

Sorry for my bad english. Thanks.

None of my pages load and I get this error message:

PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This continues to happen and I really need it fixed please!

I end up having to use a different browser when I prefer firefox.

I have emptied my cache, refreshed firefox to default, checked my security settings, not sure I have ads or ad blocking if I do I am not finding it. I did disable some protections to try and get things to work to no avail; which I don't prefer.

I believe this issue is on your end because this happened a few days ago, then things worked, and now they are not again.

I have read many of your articles and don't have any more time to waste to try to fix this. It has been exhausting and now I need you to fix this please.

I won't be able to keep using firefox if this keeps happening. It would be much appreciated if you would fix this.

Thank you!

After seeing so many problems with ver 89 reported here, and with my own font display problems, I still forgot to remind my wife not to update firefox on her pc.

So, she updated, started using, then firefox crashed. After killing task, firefox loaded up on a white blank window. Troubleshoot mode or whatever also gives a blank, even after restarting windows.

Uninstalled 89, downloaded ver 88 and installed. Had to say goodbye to her bookmarks, saved login etc. To my horror, when I went into options to disable auto update, it was already downloading 89! Even after changing it and exiting firefox, it still updated to 89!

Uninstalled 89 and reinstalled 88 again. Disconnected internet before running firefox so that I could change the update setting first. What a hassle. Can someone with powers here tell firefox devs to not beat the purpose of reverting to previous versions...

Been a loyal Firefox user since the time of Netscape... Really sad to see another very problematic version... Hope the mvp volunteers and top contributors here can compile our issues and submit to the devs...

Marking the empty areas makes the text appear in white on blue background but that is not how it should be, right? Is there someone who recognise the issue and can help me out?

I am no longer able to access my Directv login screen on Firefox. When I click on "Sign in to my account" I am directed to an error message "We want to keep your info safe We haven't noticed any activity in a while. We're redirecting you for your security." and a blue "OK, got it" button. When I click on the button, it loops back to the error message. I have cleared cache several times, used the separate Firefox window, rebooted, talked to Directv Tech support without correcting the problem. I can access the sign in on Chrome, Edge and Android phone and Directv got to the screen using my sign in. I'm stumped. If I have to use Chrome, no problem, but it will become my default browser

Since using the refresh feature for Firefox, I can no longer use the mouse to scroll through my emails when reading them. I regret refreshing Firefox to a new version. It's horrible in my opinion. I've lost all the things I used every day. It's made my screen size weird also. Does anyone have a way to correct that and the mouse scrolling?

I would like to get an actual answer to an archived question that I didn't find very useful. This is the one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1301997 . I have also attached an image of a reply to this question that I relate to a lot, but unfortunately it didn't get an answer. So, I would like to ask the same question as this guy asked: For privacy reasons, I would like to hide the notification bar that pops-up in front of all windows, showing the video's title and thumbnail, but not the function for Control Media Playback. Is it possible?

If you couldn't understand the question, I'll explain again. So I attached another image (the second one) for demonstration. This shows this pop-up that is hard to name, so I'll call it a pop-up;

I would like to hide the video title and thumbnail from this pop-up just for privacy reasons. I don't think this is currently possible because the only configuration I could find was "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled", but if I disable it it would remove the function completely.

So I mainly use firefox and it had been working perfectly for as long as Ive had my laptop. However, recently this issue has come up, that random pages often (around 70-80% of the time) do not open on the first try. Firefox tries to load it for 5-8 seconds and then gives me the server not found error. However, if I click on the refresh button a couple of times it then successfully loads the webpage. This has been happening for 2-3 days now and is really annoying and hard to work around.

It shouldn't be my wifi since my other laptop does not have this issue. I have refreshed/reset firefox to no avail. I use kaspersky security, but it has had no issues so far and I have not done any changes to settings or anything like that. I thought maybe its a firewall issue but I had not tinkered with any of those settings either. Lastly, I also play online shooters and have so far not noticed any lag during games, making me think its a browser issue.
