Hi community! I've been switching from Chrome to FF this year, and noticed that in a couple of Google services(Google Ad Manager, Ad Words, Analytics etc.) FF seems to work poorly. 1. Layout of webpage is messed up 2. Scrolling gets stuck quite often 3. Loading speed is slow

I have tested FF and Chrome side by side, all these problems only occur on FF, also both browsers are the latest version. Does anyone know why this is happening, are there any fix?

Ich sende Ihnen gern einen langen Bericht mit allen Informationen. Allerdings nur wenn mich jemand dazu persönlich auffordert, zum Beispiel mit einer email oder SMS . Warum erst dann ? - Weil auch ich meine Zeit nicht gestohlen habe. Weil ich mir die Arbeit nur dann mache , wenn ich daran glaube oder vermuten kann , daß meine Informationen auch gelesen werden.

The default arrow selectors are tiny and look like crap. I have went through many tutorials and websites that do not have code applied in FF or they tell me to use javascript. Why is there no css code selector in FF for those arrows?

This is code I found for Chrome: input[type=number]::-webkit-inner-spin-button{ }

So how would I edit the up and down arrows in FF?

When I go to https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/#, search for hotels, and then click on a hotel, a pop-up opens to https://www.roomkey.com/hotels (usually to a specific hotel).

I usually use Chrome for accessing https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/# because I do not get a pop-up when doing the same thing in Chrome.

I have pop-ups disabled in Firefox.

I did all the steps required in the checklist to enable A2HS to the website of my application:

To be served over HTTPs — the web is increasingly being moved in a more secure direction, and many modern web technologies (A2HS included) will work only on secure contexts. To have a manifest file with the correct fields filled in, linked from the HTML head. To have an appropriate icon available for displaying on the Home screen.

Still, the icon does not show up.

I suspect that a self-signed certificate might be the issue, for the documentation does not make clear whether or not the certificate needed to be issued from a CA. Only that it must be served over https.

Am I correct in my assumption?

There are several hundred browser websites that are opened after reboot with Mozilla Firefox reload.

How did this happen with a reload?

Is this a cache or cookie problem?

What was changed in the January Mozilla Firefox update?

Ccleaner requires that the browser is closed to clear cache and cookies.

If this were done the several hundred webpages would no longer reopen.

How can the Mozilla Firefox browser be modified so that it no longer displays Access Denied without losing the reload option for the hundreds of websites that are currently open?

(The browser typically has the default settings)


The Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers can open these websites without problems. Other end users opening the same websites with Mozilla Firefox did not see Access Denied.


For this problem please indicate:

What specifically happened with the January update that may have caused this problem? If it was not the January update what else could have caused this problem? How can the problem be fixed so that the webpages that are currently open can easily be reopened after a reboot with reload? What could have been done to prevent this Access denied problem?

I use this website very often: soapee.com

It doesn't use http, https, or even www.

I cannot access it at all anymore, and cannot add an Exception. I don't care if it doesn't have a certificate, or something is expired - I just want to access the site. There's nothing on the site that is a risk for me - just a bunch of recipes. IE/Chrome are no problem, but I won't use any browser except Firefox.

Can someone help?

I've just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Previously, if I downloaded a .csv file, eg from a bank site, I had the option to save it or open it directly with Excel. Now, with Windows 10, all I get is a Save As dialog and there is no option to open the file in Excel. Is this change something in Firefox or is it an "enhancement" of Windows 10?

Grateful if anyone can tell me how to restore the option to open the file in Excel without saving it.

How to keep your YouTube Gmail login separate from your main Gmail login?

I have a main Google email account (for my important emails) and a secondary Google email account for YouTube with all my subscriptions etc. I'm not a creator. Until recently, I could open Gmail and see my main email account and I could go to YouTube and automatically be login with my YouTube Gmail account. I refreshed Firefox and now when I open YouTube it asks me to sign in, when I do it changes my login in Gmail, so I have to re-login to Gmail to my main email account. When I re-login to Gmail, it signs me out of YouTube into the other Gmail account! It goes back and forth wasting time. I would be grateful to fix this to save the wasted time it takes to keep having to login back and forth. I've been searching for an answer and haven't found a good solution yet. All I've found are frustrated people in various threads. My Android phone is able to keep my Gmail account logged in and my other Gmail account logged into Youtube but, on my mac computer on Firefox it no longer keeps them separate. It seems to have happened after I refreshed Firefox recently.

I look forward to hearing if there is a solution. Thank you.

Does the Firefox command-line mode have an equivalent tool?


So far I have checked
