I tried Firefox 86.0 on ArchLinux with a KDE Plasma (Wayland) session. All Qt and GTK applications function normally. Firefox does not crash, but there is a noticable delay while typing or interacting with the mouse. It seems the input is received but it is not rendered on the screen.

I used the profiler and uploaded a profiler session to help you investigate the problem.

For some reason Firefox is deleting my browsing history every time I exit the browser. I do not have the setting enabled to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'.

This seems to have started happening since I told Firefox to 'forget' a couple of sites in my browsing history.

I do not have any external programmes such as antivirus that would delete the browsing history.

What could be causing this?

why does firefox refuse to open because unsafe document etc, and when the same(within firefox) is entered into google surch, the respective page is available, can be opened and confirms that it is a safe page. No problem to open in edge. The various tipps do not help. antivirus is F-secure. cleaning cookies and cache did not help either.

Hello,

I have a problem with Firefox. I think this is a bug. I have tested it in Firefox 85, 86 and 87.

When I press Alt, the complete title bar with the menus File, Edit, View, ... appears. Afterwards, when I click Minimize, Maximize, Close, New Tab or List All Tabs, the title bar is minimized again but nothing else happens. Those buttons just don't work.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Is it likely to be fixed sooner than three months/six months/years? Please tell me how I can add anymore useful information. Thanks for your support!

Is there a way to hide the current window when dragging off its one and only tab?

Hello! I'm a sort-of new Firefox user, and I just noticed some differences in behavior between Firefox and Chrome.

In Chrome, when I drag a tab out of its window so that I can move it into another window, if the window in question only has one tab, then dragging that one tab will hide the current window and show the background, allowing me to easily drag it into that background window.

This is especially useful when both windows are maximized.

In Firefox, I cannot do the same. Dragging a tab around a window with only that one tab open does not hide the current window, but rather, drags the tab around the browser window. I recognize now that this is because I can drag the tab to other places such as the Bookmarks menu, and if the above Chrome behavior was replicated, I would have a hard time doing this with just one tab open.

Though, I think the way to merge a maximized one-tab window onto another window in Firefox is to just drag the window a bit so it stops becoming maximized, then drag the one tab onto the window behind it. Is that how I'm supposed to do it, or is there a better way?

On another note, is there any way as of the moment to replicate Chrome's behavior with regard to this tab dragging situation? If not, thank you for your time, anyway. I'll just get used to the new way of doing this for now. Thank you all!

Is there some way to pass POST data when navigating between containers? As someone who uses searX as their search engine, which uses POST requests to perform searches, it is very inconvenient that I cannot make searches when the site that I'm searching from is in one container and the search engine I'm using is set to open in a different container, as the data containing my search request does not actually get passed.
