I got a notice from Mozilla that Firefox was updated over night. Now when I hit a link it goes to edge instead of Firefox. In the Firefox settings, it still says that Firefox is my default browser. I do not want to use Edge. How do I fix this. I have used Firefox for many years.

Firefox has stopped saving history and I am unable to save any bookmarks. This seems to have happened recently for no reason I can understand. I haven't made any changes. I use a VPN but was doing so before this happened. I have checked all the settings and also deleted the places.sqlite file. When I click <bookmark current tab> nothing happens and history shows as empty.

Hello there,

Today i found that there is a htm file in my Downloads folder which I haven’t download it. The name is 65k7m58G.htm with zero bytes size. I opened it with notepad and is completely empty. I’ve checked my downloads window in FF (ctrl+j) to see where that file downloaded from but it’s nothing there!

Is there any known bug that generates empty htm file in Downloads folder?

by the way I checked my whole system with Eset smart security and everything sounds good.

Thanks

I've looked for solutions, some had weird MTU settings, some needed to enable hardware acceleration in Chrome, but haven't found a solution that works. Created a new profile to try that out, but still no dice.

I can do a test recording in Google Meet, which displays my video just fine, but when playing back, it's just a black screen, and that is also what happens if I share my screen. Participants get a lot of black.

I've been using Firefox with Google meet for many years, and never had this problem before. I did report the issue in Meet, but it's not likely to attract much attention from Google.

Suggestions much appreciated.

I have new windows 11 laptop. I added firefox browser & made it my default. It displays a news feed upon starting. I've never seen this on earlier versions. How can I turn it off? I don't want anything displayed except a search box & my bookmarks. If this can't be disabled I will be looking for a different default browser :( Thanks.

About halfway through an Audible audiobook I was listening to, the audiobook stopped, and i got a notice that said: "Please update your browser. Playback is no longer supported on this browser version." But I do have the most recent version of my browser—Firefox—so I don't know how to fix the problem and make the audiobook play again.

I have been trying to logon to my SirusXM account for 30 minutes. I enter the email address for the account and it says it can't find it. Then Find Username link tells me to use the email it can't find. Repeated several times. Even got online with SirusXM chat pop up and they told me to use the email it "can't find". The email is/was typed correctly. The FireFox is the latest update. The OS is Windows 11 (updated) and the hardware is an I9-12900HX, 32 gig laptop. More than adaquate. So on a whim I opened the logon site in Brave and voila got right in. Am I doing something wrong with Firefox?

Since the most recent update, I am finding that Firefox has become highly unresponsive when it comes to loading some pages. Some are fine but others such as Reddit and Wikipedia will not or only partially load. Pictures will often only half load or not at all. News articles will often print text and fonts but nothing else.

This not occurring on all sites. And it doesn't seem to matter whether the site is https activated or not as some of the other threads seem to indicate is the problem.

I need a solution to this.
