I have a problem, firefox is causing my screen to flicker and mess up the interface on my computer. I have no addons installed. I am always surfing incognito. In many cases the screen flickers a few times, and if I am fast enough to close Firefox the problem goes away. This problems does not happen with any other software that utilize on my computer. This occurs for the most part when I am on social media sites like FB, Linkedin or IMDb. Sometimes one can see that some square grafics as an error with in the browser window. And then after a minute or so the flickering starts. These grafic errors never occur outside the browser window and when they appear. But when the screen starts to flicker, the grafic errors occur all over the screen to the point when I close Firefox. It goes back to normal. If I am not fast enough, os stalls and I have to perform a hard reboot, with powerbutton.

Clicking "Enable" in the "Manage Your Themes" area seems to do nothing. I've tried clicking both buttons in the screenshot shown below and nothing happens at all. If I click the theme itself it takes me to another screen where the "Enable" button is also broken.

What could be causing this?  How can I change to Dark theme?

I have Firefox version 78, as my MacBook Pro is 11 years old. After the last automatic update, however, Pocket has disappeared from my tab. I did the following:

I tried downloaded the latest version of Firefox, but my computer is too old to use it. Is there anything else I can do? I really enjoyed Pocket and its articles. Thank you.

Using F3 & F4 for something other than copy/paste is like reassigning the return key to act like the delete key.

This is the one feature of Firefox that prevents me from making it my default browser. I can't even override it using the Mac OS shortcut overrides.

Any way to do this in Firefox?

On the release notes of 78.15 is states: This is the final planned ESR78 release. Eligible users will be automatically updated to the ESR91 release on November 2.

Never saw this kind of text from mozilla before. Does this mean that unlike previous versions, 78.15 will no longer give you the option to decline automatic updates?

I have a Chromebook HP 360 running Linux Today I used Linux and managed to get Firefox to work on my Chromebook it works fantastic except for one issue

I can't seem to get a microphone that will work with anything but Bing so if I asked Bing a question I can use the microphone

what I want to do is type in Facebook Messenger or write an email and use a microphone to do it the microphone on my Chromebook in my accessibility features will only work with my Chromebook it won't work with a Firefox browser is there an add-on somewhere that I can use that I can't find that will accomplish what I'm trying to do.

It's so much easier to tap the microphone button and then speak instead of type especially if I have a long letter to write.

I know that cookies are stored in a SQLITE database. I use a Linux distro and as per the documentation I viewed the cookie file at location '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/cookies.sqlite' and I can view all the contents as expected.'

However, these two things are bugging me if someone can please help me:

(i) SQLITE isn't a server connected database (it just offers minimal functionality) and since cookies are something accessed by server side from http headers with every request how does that work out?

(ii) Session storage key value pairs are stored in '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/webappsstore.sqlite' however, when I create session storage key value pairs and without closing the tab if I try viewing the session key; I can't find the key value pairs. I tried with Local storage and it works however with session storage it does not show me the key value pair in database.

11.27.21

iMac - OS10.11.6 El Capitan - Firefox 78.15

I have spent hours searching internet and Mozilla support. Nothing. All I want to do is switch my sign in accounts. I have two. Firefox confirms this. When I go into Accounts, following existing procedures to establish a second sign in, I type in second email with response telling me this account already exists. I know that. I can even see it in the Passwords/Accounts section.

But nothing, nothing appears anywhere telling me how I can simply switch from existing sign in to the other. Nothing.

If anyone at Firefox would care to explain the secret, I would appreciate it so I can stop wasting time searching this solution.

Don't use euphemisms like some instructions do which only confuse simple answers. Please simply state Step 1, Step 2 etc

One such support page said something like select one account and click "Preferred" or the like. Saw nothing like this in my Account settings.

thanks Larry

When I try to sign in to Google services in Mozilla Firefox, I get redirected to University of Michigan's weblogin site/application. Even when I type gmail.com directly into the URL bar and press entire, I am redirected. The site I get redirected to is as follows, although I do not recommend following the link unless you know what you are doing:

https://weblogin.umich.edu/?cosign-shibboleth.umich.edu&https://shibboleth.umich.edu/idp/Authn/RemoteUser?conversation=e2s1

I have already tried going into Mozilla Firefox preferences and selecting Manage Data under the option to clear the cache and data. How do I remove the UMich's weblogin redirect?
