Hi,

Recently whenever I watch any video, wether it'll be on YouTube, Twitter, Reddit etc. my ping will instantly shoot from ~20 to anywhere from 100-200. I have tried everything from restarting it, removing all my extensions etc. and nothing seems to work.

I have tested it and it only happens when a video plays, even if I minimize the browser it will still happen.

What do you suggest I do? Because I can't use my browser for the main reason I use it for.

Thanks.

When I now hit "file" then "mail to" gmail demands (https://www.google.com/gmail/about/) that I open an account instead of my usual Outlook being used. Historically, I have used a gmail account for other business and both have remained separate programs. I want to return to using Outlook as my default program. It is still listed and chosen by me to be my default app but it is not working that way. Thanks for any and all help.

I have firefox synced across 2 PCs both set to auto install updates. When one has auto updated and I come to use the second, I get a message that my profile cannot be used on an old version and I am required to create a new profile (or exit firefox). I have to then update and re-sync which is very annoying.

How Can I Make Firefox 93 Stop Asking If I want to Add Second Webmail Service As An Application for Mailto Links?

Greetings to all!

I am experiencing a minor annoyance with Firefox that I would like to resolve before it becomes a major PITA.

I am running Firefox 93 on Linux Mint 20.1. I have email accounts with two different webmail providers: Gmail and ProtonMail. I have Gmail selected as the application I wish to use when I click a mail link on a web page. For the last couple or three months though, when I open my account on Protonmail.com, an extra window appears at the top of the Firefox window which reads

"Add "mail.protonmail.com" as an application for mailto links?" This question is followed by a button labeled "Add application", but no button labeled "No, thank you", or "Bugger off", or anything similar.

I can close the window by simply clicking on the close window X in the upper right corner and that is that, but ONLY for the current session.

What I would like to figure out is the process by which I can 'teach' Firefox that, No! I DO NOT want to add "mail.protonmail.com" as an application for mailto links.

I have looked high and low across the 'net, and particularly on Mozilla's site for an answer to my query, but I have had no joy.

By involving Mozilla Support in my quest, I am hopeful that I am simply overlooking the solution to this irksome issue.

I eagerly await a reply.

My respect and Best Regards,

Firefox windows change resolution when the window is moved between iMac monitors.

[If this question was previously answered, I am unable to find it.]

The Setup: I have dual displays: a 2021 iMac 27 inch (used as the start-up display of course) and a 2009 iMac 27inch. The Problem: Firefox windows change resolution when the window is moved between monitors. Windows from applications from Apple (Safari...! etc.) and other (e.g., Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Zoom, Adobe Elements) all retain their resolution when they are moved to the second display. Firefox does not, and windows are displayed at a significantly reduced resolution. I have been unable to alter any display settings or Firefox settings to eliminate the "blow-up" loss of resolution when the window is moved.

(Yes, the text and display can be improved using the text/display commands in Firefox, but this kludge adjustment means the window displays poorly when returned to the first monitor.)

I don't understand why Firefox resolution behaves this way when the windows in all the other applications I've listed it is unchanged, particularly Safari which is displaying HTML for the same graphics and text.

Hello, A url with the #anchor not refreshing to proper position. I click on this link UPC on this website page: https://www.b4usa.com/princeton-tec/ and the link opens to top of anchor page, not at anchor position.

When I refresh the page with the anchor: https://www.b4usa.com/upc/#twenty it still does not take me to the proper page position.

The only way to get to the proper position is to right click on the princeton page, most people do not know how to open links that way.

This problem also is occurring on the android phone.

How can I fix this?

I have one pinned tab that I want to keep the sound muted on because it's a simple game that I play occasionally. The problem I'm having though is whenever I close the lid on my laptop for the night, then reopen it in the morning, the tab is no longer muted. Laptop is set to sleep when closing the lid. I just want to set the tab to mute permanently. Is there a way to do that without adding yet another extension to my growing list of extensions? Or is this unmute behavior not supposed to happen and something is amiss? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Windows 10 Asus VivoBook 1T C drive 1T D drive 16G ram

When trying to use the keyboard in certain comments sections, the keyboard malfunctions. It toggles between caps and lowercase for no reason, and does not actually allow me to type anything until this behavior stops.

Furthermore, the microphone only works for a few seconds, and then it turns off whether I have finished speaking or not.

Unfortunately I do not know what comment platform the website is using, as it is not identified.
