Hello!

Every so often I accidentally trigger what looks like an input field of some kind.

I have managed to reproduce this ( WinKey + / ) but still have no idea what it is.

Can anyone tell me what this is, or what it's used for? I've attached a couple of image files; one of them is a closeup.

Perhaps it's an add-on that's doing this...

Thanks and have a great day!

My extensions disappeared today, for some reason. I added some back to the laptop I was working on, but when I switched to my other one, they were not there. Do extensions not sync? Add-ons are included in items being synced on my settings page. I was hoping to find they never disappeared from that laptop so I could see which ones to add back. I'm on a Windows 10 machine.

per the title, I'm looking at 2 settings:

1) network.cookie.cookieBehavior 2) network.cookie.lifetimePolicy

I'm not a web dev, but I'd like to know all I can about these 2. my goal is to never be bothered by any site about verifying my identity. I realize that you can't get rid of all of it, but some people know what they're doing and some don't. for instance, I have an AMEX account and they *never* ask me for anything because they already know everything, like google. But they are seriously a high quality bank. on the other hand, my local credit union bothers me everytime is I dump the "cache/entries" dir in win 10. Is there anyway to get what I want? thanks!

(my current settings for these 2 specs are in the images below. as you can see, the behavior is set to "new cookie jar policy")

Hello altogether. I sat up my MacBook to automatically enter light or dark mode. Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave. Even if I restart the MacBook the next day, while the system boots with light mode enabled, Firefox will remain in dark mode.

To change this temporarily, I have to open the macOS settings and enable light mode. Firefox now change to light mode and stays in light mode, even if I again re-enable the automatic changing in the macOS settings.

Later those days, Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave, like described before.

Is this a known bug? Anything else I can try?

Thanks for reading, looking forward to a possible solution.

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

Hello all. Why has FireFox been degrading lately? What's going on? What happens to the only browser on the planet? Why has the new design lost icons and does not allow you to use the thin strip of the bar? Where did the page view button go and why you should follow it into the general menu under the headline of the window or open it on hot keys? Especially what happens with DoH, where did the set-up network.trr.bootstrapAddress in about:config disappear? I kept hoping that the white lights would be fixed when I started and opened the new tab, but it still remains, do I still have WaterFox to continue using or what? Which by the way for some reason is further optimized under the various instructions of the processor unlike the original, which gives a great performance when using a decent set of extensions with a large blocklist of the ad blocker.
