Hey all,

After recent update i noticed that amazon, news.google, gmail, olx and other websites, facing issues with the sites loading completely, it looks like the mobile version is loading, or some issues with website being loaded completely. I don't see any issue with opening those websites on chrome. Gmail is going crazy though, have to load it twice, sometimes i cannot send mails, keeping showing error.

Everyday i use firefox, but never faced any issues till date, this only after the last update, which is the dark theme as such. Any fix please?

New windows sometimes have previous URL's in them even though I've set them to open Blank in Settings. Once these open sometimes I cannot type a new URL. Nothing happens after using Alt_D which usually highlights the Address Bar for entry of a new URL. I can't even highlight it by clicking with my mouse. Its like its locked into the previous address. The last one was a bank. And I can't even open a new tab from this window. Control_T opens a new tab in the original window defeating the whole purpose of segregating your work in different windows so you can group numerous tabs.

Suddenly (after an unwanted update), when clicking on the star-shaped 'bookmark' thing, the edit dialogue is displayed hopelessly small and unreadable. What do I change to get the size of this dialogue box the way it used to be OR how do I downdate the version to one in which this doesn't happen?

Sometimes there's a delay in a website being recognized and log in info filled in, sometimes its never recognized like just now with accounts.firefox.com yet its in my Passwords. URL was checked and was identical in both. You'd think Firefox would recognize firefox.com!

Sometimes it fills in the password after I have entered the username. This is for sites like Firefox.com that don't have the username and password on one page but sometimes its happened when both are on the same page. But shouldn't it recognize the username or does it have to have both on the page? Is there any way of making these types of pages work properly? This is not high security. As if I could care less what people read or know what I'm posting in a forum like this on the operation of a browser.

For a couple months now I have not been able to paste anything on Facebook via Firefox. I can use Explorer, Chrome and can paste anywhere else just fine. When I paste on Facebook messenger, the chat window closes and I have to refresh Facebook to even be able to see my messages again. Otherwise, I click on it and nothing happens. When I try to paste a post on my wall, it I get a "Something isn't working. This may be because of a technical error we're working to fix." (I just copied and pasted that here no problem) Tried clearing history/cookies/cache. Help?

For months I have noticed that about 25% of the time, when I click on Google News, Firefox loads less than half of the page. It loads the"Headlines" section, the "For You" section, and the "U.S." section and then stops loading but displays the spinning circle icon at the bottom of the page. At times if I reload the page it will load the full page, most of the time it just repeats the same behavior.

This happens on two similar Windows 7 systems (fully updated) with an always up to date version of Firefox (currently 89.0). When this happens I usually switch to Microsoft Edge and it loads fine every time.

Does anyone else experience this? If so, did you find a solution?

I am not sure if this might be a Firefox problem, a Google problem, or my problem, but I am starting here first.

I use Firefox to access our company's online testing site. Sometimes a customer will call us to update their name on our system. I go to the customer's record on the website and make the change. Once I save the record, I could go back to that customer access their testing data and download a certificate which downloads as a pdf. With the previous version of Firefox, the certificate would download and the changes I made were shown on the new certificate download. In the new version (89.0) the new download does not show the changes I made. I assume this is because the cookies or cache are not updating properly. Can you give me some idea of what to try to fix this.

I performed the same routine in Chrome and it works perfectly and also in Edge.

My google searching is leaving me at a loss here. I did something and the taskbar at the bottom of the web browser is now covered by the browser. Not the bar at the top, the bar at the bottom that has whatever other programs you're running listed in multiple tabs. Every single damn search is leading to how to mess with the task/toolbar at the top of the freakin page. I can make it reappear if I press the windows button or open another program, but while in Firefox it's not visible. The top taskbar, bookmarks, and all are still there so it's not in full page mode. I know the fix is probably ctrl and some other button somewhere but what?

There are 2 problems. I don't know maybe they are related so I'm presenting them both. In the past both processes have worked with no problems. Windows 8.1, latest FireFox.

First: Bookmarks Backup Bookmarks tab Show all bookmarks Library opens Import and Backup Backup Bookmarks backup filename window opens pick destination folder - Desktop File name box: bookmarks-2021-06-10.json Save

Only there isn't a file saved on my Desktop. And it's not my computer messing up. I took a snapshot of the Library Bookmarks backup filename window and saved it to the desktop and it worked fine. I thought maybe if I used File Explorer it could find the file bookmarks-2021-06-10.json. It did, but it's still not on the Desktop where I could save it to an external hard drive for a Backup. See attached files.

Second: Bookmarks delete files/folders. I can move files and folders around, just deleting or removing them is a problem.

Method A. Bookmarks tab right click on link or folder I want to delete click Remove Bookmark nothing happens

or Method B. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens right click on file/folder want to delete Drop down menu, click Remove Bookmark

or Method C. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens choose file to delete Organize drop down menu, click Delete

This is where it gets confusing. For methods B and C sometimes it will delete, sometimes not. Thinking about it, mostly not. I dont know why the difference, I don't think I did anything different to delete one but not the other.

When I open the Bookmarks tab again, I can't tell if the list is the same or not. I don't think it's changed.

I worked really hard on this and then I messed up and lost everything I'd done. So, I started all over, but I don't know if this is as accurate as the first. I hope so.

Please, I'm an old lady simple answers in plain English are always appreciated.

Hello When I visit Web pages that have an action button at the end of the page (for example: Submit) the button falls below the bottom border of the screen and I cannot access it. Another example: I open a lengthy email and want to respond--but cannot because the Reply button is below the bottom of the screen. I have played with different resolution settings as well as changing size of text, apps etc. in the Windows Setting/Display page. Nothing helps. On the other hand, I do not have the this problem with Chrome. How can I resolve this so that a full web page or email appears in Firefox? Many thanks in advance. John

Hello,

I keep getting Microsoft Windows Message telling me Firefox is running unnecessarily in the background. this is causing the battery to drain faster than normal. I kill it in the task manager but, it restarts a few seconds later.

Windows shows Firefox starts running in the background when windows starts. its running 89% in the background, my use is only 10% there is another 1% of unknown use. This background use of Firefox is also using 58% of the CPU causing other apps and programs, games I'm running to lag hang or stop.

I have uninstalled Firefox and used a cleaner to remove all leftover files, folders and registry keys then, rebooted, ran the cleaner again then, rebooted again then, reinstalled Firefox using a fresh install file. It's still running in the background.

I need to know how to stop Firefox from starting up and running in the background.

I even tried disabling Firefox updater and Firefox maintenance in the boot menu, that didn't stop Firefox from running in the background; doing that did lower the CPU use by Firefox 10%

Thank You
