So yesterday my Youtube comments wouldn't load, they didn't have an endless loading animation, the comments section would straight up not show up. It happened in the middle of browsing YouTube and disabling extensions does nothing to fix the problem. I decided to investigate further and when going into the network tab of inspect element I realized that the website data wasn't loading fully. I've had this issue on another website (that is highly important) before and because of the issue I had to use another browser. The issue is solved in Private windows, but that isn't ideal and I want the solution to be fixed normally. The screenshots shown below are what my youtube comments section looks like and 2 images, showing firefox not loading the page content properly at all compared to edge, with the website on firefox even thinking that there is nothing to display even though there should content displaying. Someone please help me, I love the Firefox browser but this really weird behavior is causing me to use other browsers instead. Thanks all.

Hi all,

After a long hiatus of no firefox problems I am now experiencing an issue of script embedded in on-line pictures on some websites; doing a reload with a different browser i.e to internet explorer solves the issue. I am sure that firefox is the problem, but I have done the obvious, disabling any tracker/adblocks without any success. Any clues ?

My town web site allenstown-alt.org has links at page bottom to my personal web site www.mafware.com. Suddenly after I installed Firefox 85, if I clicked on the Mafware Solutions link at page bottom, it went to a scrambled version of the current allenstown-alt page looking like it lost the css file that controls page elements but the address bar shows https://www.mafware.com/ If I added index.html to the URL, it correctly went to mafware.com

I tried using Edge and got the same weird results. Even after a Windows 10 Restart, I get the same weird behavior. Has anyone else had this problem? Did something weird happen to Windows 10?

Windows 10 home. I have no sound since Adobe flash was uninstalled. I am on Version 85.0 of Firefox. Also settings on autoplay are set to allow audio and video. I have refreshed, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox to no avail. All other browsers and programs have sound. I even switched to standard in privacy settings. Still no sound. Even tried with addons disabled.

When I go to Bookmark a Page (by clicking on the icon in the Address Bar), the folder that automatically appears is OTHER BOOKMARKS. Is there a way to change this default bookmark to another Bookmark / Folder? Specifically, I have created a new Bookmark folder, let's say it is called RECIPES and I want to automatically / default all future bookmarks to my Recipes folder. I hope that is clear. Thank you.

Multi unwanted tabs are opening every time I open Firefox. When closing Firefox I tell it to close all tabs and when I reopen Firefox they all come back. I have even tried closing them all individually, one at a time, and they still return after closing. How do I modify it so that I get to only the ones that were open at close?

I'm running Ubuntu 20.10 with GNOME Shell extension Unite which can add the minimize, maximize and close buttons to the top bar and remove the buttons from the title bar of apps. The does not work in Firefox, minimize, maximize & close remain. I'm assuming this is related to Firefox's ability to remove the title bar all together so tabs can be at the top. The Firefox Customize... page allows you to change just about everything else in the UI except these three buttons.

Is there a way to remove Firefox's minimize, maximize and close buttons?

In case it matters I really only care about the Close button (not Close tab) because GNOME Tweaks lets you remove the minimize & maximize buttons from all apps.

Thanks

Hey firefox community,

I have an issue where certain add-ons are not loading their icons (greyed out), and after a computer shutdown, or simply closing the window, the icons don't seem to stay in the overflow menu (or the place where you can store addons if you don't want them on the toolbar or the overflow menu). my only option to be able to use the extension is to "re-enable" the extension from the add-on menu.

I've read somewhere on a support thread that it may have something to do with adblockers, and although I do have adguard, I'm not 100% sure if that's the issue, as I tried disabling adguard when loading firefox, and I seemed to only be able to load the add-ons correctly once, but not again (to be fair, not a lot of testing went into this hypothesis or test).

if there is some kinda issue with adguard, I would love to know what I need to do to solve this issue, and if its something else, I would also love to know what else I would need to do, short of a clean install of firefox or something similar, as I have a few add-ons with custom settings, and resetting all of that would be a pain to redo.

thanks for your help.

PS, any additional info needed can be sent over, just may take some time
