I have a Google Fiber connection (up to 500 Mbps). When I use the Firefox 89.0 browser (my favorite), at best I get about one fifth of the speed that I get when using the Safari browser (e.g., 70 vs. 340 Mbps). I guess I could just use Safari but apart from the ease of use thanks to uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger add-ons in Firefox, Netflix doesn't want to stream in Safari. So I am screwed either way. The Google Fiber help line doesn't know what to do, their tech who came to my home said that he sees this a lot with Firefox, no solution. And yes, I have 150 GB of empty space on my hard drive so that's not an issue. Also, MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6, 16 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7, Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB. Any ideas what causes this and/or how this can be fixed or improved?

Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

For some reason, every time I go to fill in my email address, only one option is shown via auto-fill. And it's not even the address that I use when signed in here! I can't find anyplace to add it, or another, to my auto-fill options, I don't even see the one address it keeps wanting me to use, anywhere. None of the help articles say how to do this either.

I switched back to version 88. The "Upgrade" was intolerable. I need, want, and use daily the little icons at the top of the screen: The Open Book to show Side Bars to toggle my bookmarks into and out of view, and the Leaning Library books to manage my bookmarks. These were missing in the new version. And Firefox moderators kept turning of and archiving comments because they just didn't want to hear al the complaints.

I created this in a new account, because it sounded like a good idea when the question was asked (to preserve my existing settings). But now I don't have my previously open tabs. Can I get back to that previous "upgraded account to find my tabs and restore them to this new account in god old version 88?

Last night, 6/6/2021, I converted back to version 88 because version 89 was intolerable. In version 88, I told Firefox to not upgrade without my permission, but they over rode that this morning. When I re-installed version 88 last night, I said to do it in a new instance. So I would assume my open tabs from my original FireFox installation are still recorded on my C drive someplace. Can I restore my previously open tabs from my original version? I had a lot of important information that I want to get back to.

I want to use the Windows 10 multiple desktop feature so that I can have different applications running on each desktop.

Platform: Raspberry Pi 4, Ubuntu MATE 20.04.2 (Linux 5.4.0-1036-raspi) , Firefox 89.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.2

When displaying video (e.g. youtube) and graphics, the output show "image noises".

I have taken an snapshot and attached an screendump.

The areas enclosed by Thick Black Pencil shows the symtom.

1. Previous version of Firefox ( 75.0+build3-0ubuntu1 ) did not have the problem.

2. Other browser (e.g. Chromium) displaying the same video does not have the problem, so it seems it is Firefox related.

3. In a certain extend, this also affect outside video frames within Firefox evem in Settings page, see second attachment.

Please kindly shine some light.

Hallo!

Ich bin neu hier und finde mich überhaupt nicht zurecht. Ich wollte ein Feedback schreiben, weil derzeit jedes Update von Firefox weitere Verschlechterungen bei der Benutzerfreundlichkeit mit sich bringt. Ich kann nach dem neuesten Update auf Version 89 nichtmal mehr die Sitzungswiederherstellung ausführen, da steht jetzt Neuer Tab, statt about:sessionrestore, wenn er diese laden will. Nachdem man schon den Sitzungsmanager von Michael Kraft wirkungslos gemacht hat, kann man jetzt noch schlechter Sitzungen verwalten. Keine erlaubte Alternative kommt diesem Manager gleich. Warum darf ich als Nutzer nicht selbst entscheiden, welches "Risiko" ich bei der Auswahl von Add-ons eingehe?!

With the new "tab line", all the tab-line looks the same across multiple Firefox windows: they have the same background color, and the only difference is that those "inactive windows" shall have tab-names in a slightly fainted color.

Attached is a screenshot with a "custom theme", as configured here: https://color.firefox.com/?theme=XQAAAAIWAQAAAAAAAABBKYhm849SCia2CaaEGccwS-xMDPsqufDOWr6IhCp9RnjnsdP9GNu2SjSQBIXJelHlUb_p3iV0Tk_tp5WixtO7xQnun54TM0zzonAd6w0T64epRIX-MPh_WdfDW_w-yhADmUgnb68gPKrs8qenrbJlNLa8ExfeSsKaaHfQ-9sW8GyKyObiSlDh9ijHuiE5lJEM3vAAjTa46EQ7ytUeVh0LL3__uhviAA

Please advise if I am missing something super simple to configure: basically, I'd like to apply a different background color when the Firefox window is inactive. (The Solarized dark theme does part of the job, by leaving an noticeable boarder when the Firefox window is not maximized.)

It also helps if I can completely disable this new "theme" feature and restore to the the old way that these "tab-lines" are rendered.

Thanks a lot!

I had tried everything. I have deactivated all FOUR of my plugins and started up Firefox again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a fresh copy. I installed Firefox on an SSD even and it is still painfully slow. I have the same plugins and such on Chrome and that one opens up immediately. So I have been using Chrome a lot more lately because Firefox is opening slowly these days. Takes 15-20 seconds for Firefox to open every single time. I have deactivated each plugin one by one to see if they were causing the issue and sure enough, all of them were clean. Firefox still opens slowly.

On an unrelated note, I have been using Chrome a lot more lately also because some things on a webpage don't work on Firefox. I can't explain it. Like on the hickory farms website, I click on the Add To Cart button and it looks like it is being pressed, but nothing is added to the cart. This type of thing happens across the internet on many different sites. When I go to Chrome, everything works as it ought to. I have my settings set to Standard in Privacy and Security. I don't know where else I have to check and change things to get those buttons and other links and such to work.

It's all in the title. The "quick searches" feature that pops up when I highlight text is a lot more annoying then useful, so I turned it off... and it seems to re-enable itself randomly. One time I disabled it, and after 5 seconds, it re-enabled itself. So annoying. I've made so many accidental searches with that stupid feature. I mean, how many people copy text just to search it up? Even then, they can highlight the text, right click, then click "Search (engline) for (text)".

The point being, the feature is re-enabling itself randomly, and it's getting on my nerves.

I don't see any option within the settings to turn it off. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I'm using firefox 88.0.1, Windows 10. I also use "Adblock plus" and "YouTube enhancer". When I watch a YouTube video, it almost always forces the highest resolution. I don't mean "default", I mean "force". When I change the resolution to 480p (or anything else) it immediately reverts to the highest setting. Then it buffers (preloads) the video, using much more bandwidth than just the "per minute" toll for 1080p, because it is using bandwidth for the preloading as well. Is anyone else experiencing this (I think it started just this month, May 2021, or not long before that)?
