Why do Cross Site tracking cookies show up after I shut down the browser and restart? I have my history set up to delete everything when I close the browser so I'm curious why cross site cookies are apparently allowed to exist/function, even after a restart?

Can anyone help me out and others on this matter? several months ago appears FB decided to screw everyone over by arbitrarily forcing auto refresh. If you're reading something long and or have to step away for a moment it is gone.

Some have posted for chrome they have an extension that stopped it. The only one on FF does not work. I tried it, does nothing at all. Time for FF to fix this issues allowing you to turn it on or off at my will.

Thanks Mike

Here is a rather long winded explanation of my problem initially prepared for an email to Firefox until I found out that was not a possibility. Hello Agent, I have a problem with Firefox described as follows: I have an account with a company called Eversfield Organic an organic meat company. They have a facility whereby the delivered cold packs and insulating material can be returned to them via DPD free of charge. To achieve this a form has to be completed on Eversfields site to enable a returns label to be printed. When attempting to complete this form one line of this form will not accept an input. This item is called the “Country” which should read “United Kingdom”. I cannot input this manually or by my password manager “RoboForm” which temporary inputs United Kingdom until I release the mouse button when it goes blank again. I have tried the Google Chrome and Opera browsers which work perfectly using this system. So logically it would appear that there is a fault with Firefox which is a shame since it is my preferred browser. It would be appreciated if you can provide a solution to this problem. Regards, Ian Duncan.

I make frequent use of the Windows system-level keyboard shortcut Windows Logo button + M to go directly to the Windows desktop. Firefox does not respond to this keyboard shortcut by minimizing. How can I fix this? I already tried refreshing Firefox. This is a big enough issue to get me to abandon the browser, since I depend on keyboard shortcuts.

I don't want to get the 'Add Bookmark' popup prompt when I right click -> Bookmark Link, I just want it to bookmark the link.

Unchecking 'Show editor when saving' doesn't disable this popup.

I use 'right click -> Bookmark Link' a lot, so would really appreciate a fix, thanks :)

I use Duck duck go as my default search engine. I've noticed that after the last couple of updates, the default has changed to Google. This has not happened before. There must be a bug somewhere that is causing this to happen in the new version of Firefox.

Hi, I used to be able to go to my email with Foxfire Mozilla with one click. Now I have to go to gmail, click on user name, insert my password twice, and then go to my phone to click on "yes, it is me" and sometimes before that enter a code, and then go to update securty all before I can read my email. I don't need any of this; I am the only user of my account and the only person who uses my computer. I am very unhappy with this. Also, just recently I now have lots of popups, most about music. It isn't even advertising, that I could understand, just annoying boxes of useless information that I have to dismiss. What is going on?,

I sometimes have a problem connecting to a URL. It does not make any difference which URL. Microsoft Edge has the same problem when this occurs.

I have two network connections. One is via Ethernet and one via WiFi. I generally don't connect the WiFi since I am sitting next to my router. Yesterday, when this occurred, I connected the WiFi and everything worked. I thought it had something to do with my WiFi, but today when it failed I tried the same thing and the problem continued.

I ran the Microsoft troubleshooter and it displayed that I was connected to the Internet.

When this occurs I can ping my router successfully, but I cannot connect to my router via Firefox or Microsoft Edge.

Today I rebooted my router, even though other devices do not have a problem connecting to the Internet, and when the boot was completed everything worked. When I rebooted the router my PC indicated that it did not have a connection and when it was able to access the router initially it indicated that I did not have a connection to the Internet. When my PC indicated it had an Internet connection Firefox functioned correctly.

I have a UPS which has my router, modem, and desktop PC connected. We have had power failures and either my PC is turned off or I turn it off. My router and modem continue to function and we can access the internet via tablets or cell phones. I was wondering if the power failure somehow could have affected my network provider and I needed to reset my router so that it could establish a new connection to the modem. Don't know if this makes any sense or not.

I have Microsoft Office 2021 which is Microsoft's perpetual license version of Office 365. I use Outlook in Microsoft Office 2021. What surprised me is that when this is going on Outlook will function correctly.

Is there anything I can access in Firefox that can help me determine what is going on, or do you have any suggestions?

The title describes the problem I'm facing. I don't really use other sites that have videos other than Youtube. But I notice that the videos freeze quite often and audio just continues to play. The videos then unfreeze and skip multiple frames. I've noticed clearing browser cache seems to help but it doesn't help for longer than a 2 min video at best. At worst, it doesn't affect it at all.

Firefox (a new up-to-date install) has been very crashy on my new computer -- PC running Windows 11.

I ran troubleshooting mode and it shows 0 crash reports.

On my old computer, I had 4 Firefox windows open, a half dozen extensions, ~200 tabs and it was quite stable. This brand new install is running one window, 3 extensions, a dozen tabs open, and freezes and crashes pretty much every time I try to read my email (or do anything else that involves clicking).

How do get a stable Firefox?

I have Firefox set to open on the default home page with 2 rows of shortcuts. After an update yesterday, all my shortcuts disappeared on my work computer. They are still there on my laptop however. I tried to sync, no go. I have tried to re-add the shortcuts manually and it won't save it. It is important that I fix this as I have several tabs open and signed it to different websites that I work with and this saved me a lot of time.

Help!
