I have recently updated to version 81.0.2 of Firefox, and have noticed that for some reason, twitter will randomly sign me out for no reason even if I don't sign out of the site when I close the tab, forcing me to sign back in every so often. Curiously, something similar happens with gmail, as it will make me sign in both of my email accounts, even though normally when I bring up the gmail website it usually just asks which account I wish to sign in to. I have not cleared my cookies in the last few days, nor my cache, so this shouldn't be happening. What exactly is happening here? I didn't have this problem in the previous version of Firefox. Can anyone help?

I've configured my Firefox for Fedora to ask me every time in which directory I want to save the file. The default directory used by Firefox is /run/user/1000/doc/ Even after changing the directory and downloading another file, Firefox keeps reverting to this /run directory. Can I make Firefox stick to the latest directory I used? I do not want to use a fixed Download directory

Since Facebook imposed its new version on users, I find that often, when I share something from an external source (like a newspaper article), as soon as I post it and the popup disappears, Firefox immediately opens a new tab that says 'close this tab to continue'. It's very irritating. Does anyone else have this problem, and is there a fix for it? Thanks in advance

Whenever I go into a google meet for school, it doesn't work the same as it did on Microsoft Edge or Chrome. In Firefox, I keep getting disonnected at random times and some parts of the page are completely broken. I've sent a lot of messages using the feedback button in google meets, but they seem to be doing nothing. I don't want to switch to Chrome or Microsoft Edge anytime because Firefox is the best. Please help, thanks.

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 81.0.2 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

Hi I use Roll20 on Firefox and when Firefox updated my popouts went from small fitted windows to full width popouts which are unable to be resized, I would like to continue to use firefox for my online browser but this new glitch is making it unusable. Do you have any advice as to how I would fix it? I need them to popout to move them to my second screen, I purposely bought two monitors for this option.

I am running Firefox inside Windows Virtual Desktop and I have had several issues with performance. At times the I will only have 6-8 tabs open and the entire application locks up and is unresponsive. I'm unable to do anything until I can kill it from Task Manager. Even after I have stopped the process it appears that there are still processes under my user that don't go away. In the same manner, I've had the browser lock up and the screen goes completely white and again has to be closed out through task manager. I have turned off Hardware acceleration, turned off any proxy option, only have last pass running as an add-on and I'm running the latest version.

Any help would be appreciated!

How to set Firefox to open new tabs on the left, not on the right of the tab list?

Hyperlink is ok, it opens on the right of the current tab, but not the Ctrl+T or when opening link from the pinned tab. Current setup is not logical. If pinned tabs (important ones whioch you visit often) are on the beginning, and the tabs you are actively working on are on the opposite end of the tab bar. You want to open new tabs near the pinned ones.

Is there something I should do, apart from uninstalling Firefox and reverting to Chrome?
