There is a picture in picture for videos but is there a way to have this for browsing? So it would be just a sleek popped out. no address bar, title bar or scroll bar or noticeable edges and just showing only the info of the page that you are on (as shown in the red box of the picture below) and just like the picture in picture it should be scalable so that you can adjust the size. Thanks for your time.

Cheers

"Prompt for filename" dialog hangs

I have FF 84 (64-bit) running on Windows 10 (1809, build 17763.1282)

When I try to save a file or upload a file, the dialog that prompts me for the filename and folder hangs, I have to kill FF. I am unable to upload or download files.

This started slowly over time and several FF versions. At first, the dialog was slow and took a few seconds, then it became a minute, now it is permanent, preventing me from up or downloading anything. File type doesn't matter, it is the dialog box that hangs.

When I select to download a file to a specific location, it works normally. This happens only with option enabled to "prompt for file name". So, there is a work-around for file downloads, but not for uploading files, which I frequently have to do (to our Sharepoint site).

This is happening only on my work laptop, neither on my personal laptop nor desktop. Unfortunately, IT has our systems locked up, there is very little I can do.

I did have IT uninstall and reinstall FF, but I used my old profile settings, so I it is possible that it might be related to those. However, this is also happening with Google Chrome (slow, does not hang), but not with Internet Exploder or Edge, both of which behave normally.

In setting up Firefox, I opted not to activate the "https: only" extension. Nevertheless, I get a warning for every website that has not enabled the https: option. I have to deselect it every time. How can I turn it off?

Hi,

I recently updated, only to find out that all my passwords had disappeared :(. I checked my profile and there were three 0Kb files: logins.json, logins.json.corrupt and logins-backup.json. cert9.db and key4.db are still there and aren't empty. I'm on Arch Linux, so no previous version as well. Is there anything I can do to restore my passwords?

Enabling push notifications in Firefox for websites (such as gmail) does give notifications on my desktop (ubuntu). However, any notification seems to disappear very quickly, usually 2 sec but maybe up to a minute depending on if I move my mouse over the notification or if I refresh the notification tray.

I would like to have these notifications stay displayed in my desktop notification until I intentionally dismiss them.

My desktop settings for notifications from Firefox are the same as those for applications which do have notifications which last until I dismiss them. I am guessing it is setting in Firefox that I need to change. Is this setting something I can change?

Now in version 84,0 (64-bit) version tabs crash very often. Never before.

Just now I had been browsing on several tabs and watching Netflix on another screen. I checked in Task Manager (screenshot attached). Which showed 83% memory usage - but by arranging all running programmes this could not be correct as I have 32Gb RAM. Speccy report attached. I closed Firefox. No change in either Task Manager or Speccy on memory usage. Then I ran System Mechanic Pro which cleared a lot of junk internet files. And then checked Task Manager and Speccy again: 9% memory usage. This sounds about right.

My amateur assumption is that this version of Firefox does not clear closed tabs etc from the RAM memory - which leads to it becoming clogged.

Pros should know. And be able to solve this nuisance.

Thanks for help!

Firefox 84.0 crashes when trying to install electronic ID from card reader

Since the update of Firefox 84.0 I've been unable to use my card reader with a PKCS11 card to login into sites requesting an electronic ID identification. I'm on MacOS 10.15.7 with a Bit4id card reader. The problem is that when I try install the certificate into Firefox in Preferences -> Privacy and Security -> Certificates - Security Devices, Firefox freezes and I must force the closing. At restart, Firefox freezes again and I must restart it using the refresh option, that is I have to cancel all the personalizations and application of add-ons. The dynamic library that Firefox fails to load is libbit4xpki.dylib. The card reader and the card itself are working fine and I can use them with no problem in other browsers. Is anyone having this issue since the update? Any solution??? Thanks everybody! Nick

operating system- OSx High Sierra

Download and install Firefox. Open and use it, getting a couple add ons, and bookmarking some pages. everything seems fine and works fine. Shut down my Mac and go to use it next time, Firefox should still be ready to go. Only, when Firefox has closed somehow and I need have to reopen it, it needs me to go through the set up and install again. Once this is done and I can use Firefox again, Ive lost all my history, add- ons, opened tabs, bookmarks. This has happened about 4 times now since I wiped my hard drive and switched my Mac back to OSx. I never close out Firefox and usually just put my computer to 'sleep'. Anyone know whats happening?

Hi, it started quite recently, and it seems to be getting worse progressively. Last time I experienced a less annoying version of this problem years ago. When I open a youtube video it won't display it, the page seems to be loading, or more like frozen for 10-20 seconds, then I start seeing the video cover image with a loading spinner on it. It spins and spins, for almost a minute until the video starts playing. I can't even switch to other tabs to see other things as long as this slow/freeze takes place. The whole browser seems very sluggish and slow. The tabs seem like clickable, but it won't switch to another tab.

It has nothing to do with my internet connection, it's 100/100M and no outages or slowness, I tested.

Once the video starts playing, it may freeze for 2 seconds after playing for 2 seconds, and after that it plays very well until the end. And whenever I click to open another video (related or anything), the same crap starts all over again...

I didn't install any add-ons when it started, maybe an existing add-on is messed up?
