These are the pictures I get recently ... tiny. Micromised. Unsure if I accidentally hit a "micromise" button, but all of the sudden, the normal view became tiny.

Also, many a time by myself and others told: When browsing picture sites such as Deviantart, Pinterest, even Google Pictures, Firefox severely slows down up to even dead stop after a while. Though several versions have passed, this issue still remains.

Clearing Cache, or using DelTempDir/FlushDNS doesn't help at all, once it begins to slow, only full restart of FF helps, but this ain't always an option. It almost seems that the memory is filling up by the feeds of these sites, and just cannot be cleared, no matter what.

Using a Memory tool ALSO runs nowhere.

Please assist?

Thank you.

Hi There!

I am trying to find a solution to my issue but impossible... tried to google to find a solution but nothing.

I am trying to print from firefox and when i want to change the paper size i have only "US letter" (check attached picture). I have a mac updated with last os (ventura). I also have the latest version of firefox.

What i tried to do : Delete Firefox + re download and re install Try to delete profile folder of firefox in the library Delete printer + re install printer.

When i try to print from word or safari i have different list of paper size. As soon as i choose an other printer i am able to find different paper size.

Thank you!

After making a jump to FF 105, my virtual bookmark function started landing on different places each time I invoked it, even though I wasn't changing the window.pageYOffset value. Now after updating to FF 106, where I had the option of setting that value using the onLoad option, the page remains absolutely blank until I confirm or reject the window.pageYOffset value. Since I cannot see where on the page I am positioned (because it won't finish loading) it is now useless. This tool had been my most frequently used function for many years as I could reposition to a desired location by merely pressing my home key. OnKeydown it would jump to the top of the page and onKeyUp, it would return me to virtual bookmarked position, no matter where I was on the page. For some of my pages, I would invoke it more than once in less than a minute. It was really useful!. (Now it is useless!) These problems happened immediately after each FF update.

Hello, I'm running Firefox 106.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10 (all updates applied) I'm not sure if this issue is related to a Firefox update yesterday (27/10/2022), but I can no longer log in to sainsburys.co.uk. I have used Firefox for years on this website and have never before encountered an error. I called Sainsburys support and I don't think anything has changed on their site. Their site uses two-factor authentication and after entering an email address and password, the site generates an error message asking the user to contact Sainsburys support. I have no problems with authenticating on other sites and I can log onto sainsburys.co.uk using Google Chrome. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

I was so in hopes that the latest update (10-19-22) would fix the issue with facebook...but no, after a minute of scrolling on facebook, the screen starts jumping and scolling around without my input. Facebook works fine with Chrome, but I would prefer FF. I know there are a lot of people experiencing same and was hopeful this update would be the fix. Windows 10, most recent update on facebook and now most recent FF update, too.

Since the last update i'm plagued by slowness when trying to access websites, among them youtube, google, yahoo. And by slowness i mean the hourglass icon stays put for more than 30 seconds then the browser just stays idle like no command was given, some times i get a response like: server not found. but mostly no response, just stays there thinking. I have tried to uninstall it, but i was given the option to reset it, i reset it and the problem persisted, so i decided to uninstall it, the process of uninstall started then the window disappeared without completing the uninstall, i disabled addons and the problem still persist, i even ran malware and virus scans and still no problems found there.

I'm running mozilla on a amd 7 3700, 16 gb ram and a Nvidia 1650 super, ssd hard drive and avg internet security with mozilla being added to exception.

P.s in the ss bellow, you see the request for google, that request was made more than 5 minutes ago, and at the moment of the request and the writing of this message mozilla was in troubleshoot mode.

I have the latest version of FireFox. YouTube videos have always played in FF. Two days ago they stopped playing. When you click the triangle to play you get the loading circle going round and round. Nothing ever plays. The videos work fine in Chrome and Edge browsers.

Thinks I have tried to fix the problem: 1. Deleted all cookies and data 2. Turn off hardware acceleration 3. Tried troubleshooting mode 4. Tried private mode 5. Under Help - Refresh FireFox

I have read about other people having the same problem but, nothing in the articles has fixed my problem.

Thanks for the help.

Why does clicking on the first drop-down option in the URL bar always take me to a Google Search?

Please see the video too: https://imgur.com/a/DvXaYFu

1) Open Firefox 106.0.2 or higher (I'm on Windows 11) 2) Click anywhere on the URL bar and type the first letter of the website you want to visit. i.e. Youtube.com (Y) 3) Manually click on the link (first drop-down option) from the URL bar

The video shows me clicking on the first drop-down option in the URL bar. But clicking on it doesn't take me to Youtube.com, it takes me to a Google search for the term "y" instead.

Previously Firefox would immediately highlight the first URL drop-down option upon me typing in a single letter (i.e. y would immediately select the first option--Youtube, a site I frequently visit) and then all I'd have to do is press enter to go to Youtube.com

Now since Firefox won't auto-select the first option in the URL drop-down I have to manually select it, which is why I run into this issue. This almost always happens on a blank tab.

Why is Firefox doing this? Why won't manually clicking on the first drop-down for Youtube.com take me to the website?

I've been trying to search on Bing to get their search points, but they are not registering on Firefox. Other browsers do not seem to have this problem. This is happening very recently. I've started Firefox on safe mode, refreshed it, still not working. I've disabled add-ons as well but nothing. It only refreshes to add something at the end of the URL, not sure if that helps.

Below I show screen shots of the blank page on firefox which has the firefox logo all but diminished under the private browsing mask. It's the same on the start bar but of course much smaller.

It makes it look like the new brand of firefox is the private browsing mask (I am always in that mode except for netflix).

I prefer the firefox logo and I surely don't need to know when I'm in private browsing on the start bar. The home page I don't care about, but I know I'm in private browsing cause the upper area of firefox says private browsing right on the browser itself. I have no idea why we would need be made aware that we're in private browsing, it seems the opposite would be more helpful.

I'm writing because I don't like this new firefox tiny icon with a big purple mask over it. Wanted to let you know.

If you're changing brands or something? To a purple mask? And private browsing isn't all that great.

The image on the left below is the new firefox icon on the start bar. The one on the right is on the blank page which I don't care about at all but it's just a bigger picture.

Who/what is firefox?

I love firefox, but just saying.

Thanks for hearing.
