Does DoH affect or retard search and browsing performance even on other browsers? On Google newsgroups where performance should be snappy, does DoH affect or retard the search and browsing performance even on other browsers enough so that minutes can go by before the results of a URL or search will be displayed, this even happens on a speed test where the results say they're supposed to be speedy but slow to Resolve?

So i have noticed recently that when i type a search term into the address bar and press enter it sometimes says "Do you want to go to the link http://Searchterm/ instead. Well today i tried to search "Unity" and now my address bar instead of searching allways wants to go to "http://Unity/" instead of searching google for "Unity". I know clearing cache would probably help but i'd like to know if theres a way to turn off that whole "feature?". Thanks

I just tried some other things and none of them do it and i just cleared my cache but it's still there

Using Firefox, When I access pgatour.com it initially displays correctly, but after a few seconds shifts the page to the right by half a screen width. The I select "Leaderboard" and again it displays correctly but again shifts to the right (see attachment for demonstation).

I have no problems with these pages using MS edge, so i presume the issue lies in my copy of Firefox. note I have only noted this issue in the last few days as the PGA Tour has only just restarted. I have Auto updates activated on Firefox

I recently installed Firefox on a Mac and migrated from Brave. Everything is fine, some things better, but I am having issues with the trackpad. In particular:

1. Jump to click in scrollbar doesn't work on most pages. Oddly, it works on pages like about:config and other Firefox internal pages.

2. I cannot make two finger page swipe between pages. Three finger swipe does but this causes issues for me in other applications. The two or three finger swipe option doesn't work.

This does not happen with Brave, Chrome, and Safari.

Things I have tried:

Safe mode. Reset SMC and PRAM. Uncheck and recheck boxes in the Trackpad System Preferences. New profile.

Every time I restart my pc, firefox is back to it's default state, then it starts syncing reinstalls every add-on etc etc. What can I do? Should I just reinstall it again? Would that just give me a third bug? What's going on lately with the browser?

My preference setting for downloading pdf-documents (-> opening with a special pdf reader) is changed every now and then to the default(?) setting 'Save File'. This is annoying! I assume this happens during updating of the firefox version. This is annoying. Any way to prevent this from happening?

I was trying to customize the Firefox, I'd spent hours on it, no ideal solution yet.

1. I'd like to use "right click" instead of "mid click" to close a tab. 2. remove "x" on the tab 3. use"shift+ right click" to get tab menu. 4. always open in a new tab when I type in address bar. 5. always open in a new tab when I drag a link. 6. stay on the current tab when I open a new tab.

I was using another browser, as to the privacy issue, I had to switch to Firefox. If I can get all those preferences back, that would help alot. Any help would be appreciated.

bold textHi, I love pinned tab functionality. I use them to keep open pages that I often need to go back (mail / social / monitoring etc). I'd like to configure a pinned tab to *never* navigate to a different url, is this possibile?

A pinned tab navigates to a different URL when: - the tab is selected and I click on a link on a different app. ( for example Outlook) - I type a new URL on the address bar.

I would like to configure Firefox to always use a new tab in these 2 cases. Similar to what happens when I click on a bookmark link.

thanks!

When using Youtube, at times some videos will freeze my entire computer (laptop) when the video attempts to start. This doesn't happen with all videos. I can't figure out why this is happening. How can I debug this? Since it doesn't happen every time, I can't just start Firefox in safemode and keep opening youtube videos for an hour until maybe it happens again...

Hello,

I just installed Firefox TV on my Amazon Fire Stick. When I access websites, I sometimes have pop-ups come on it just like I do on my PC. On my PC, they appear on other tabs next to the one I'd be in.

This doesn't bother me too much, but I can't seem to find out how to actually close it on the Firestick/FirefoxTV. The new tab/popup can take up the entire screen and I'm not able to close it to get back to where I was before. If I push the back button on Firestick remote it doesn't work either.

This happens with or without turbo mode on.

Any help would be nice, Thanks :)

Bonjour,

Je joue à forge of empire depuis un peu plus d'un an et depuis quelques semaines, le site à beaucoup ralenti. J'ai des freeze sur la page principale du jeu, et une consommation de CPU à 90% quand l'onglet du jeu est actif.

C'est peut être corrélé avec une modification que j'avais fais dans les about:config qui m'avait permi de corriger les soucis de vidéo youtube dont l'image ne bougeait plus mais le son continuait. Mais la modification que j'avais faite, je l'ai remis à la valeur par défaut sans changement.

J'ai un ticket ouvert avec l'assistance du jeu, qui déclare que c'est à firefox qu'il faut que je fasse ma demande.

Merci.

I started to have issues with the latest version of Firefox 77.0.1 (64bits) on my windows 10, at the time of detecting my Audio devices.

Taking as an example Google Voice, It only detects the default communication for the Ringtones, Speakers and Microphone. When I click the drop down to select more hardware there is none.

If I use Chrome or Edge it takes me all the devices that are on my PC.

I create a screnshoot that compare firefox and chorme.

Would be possible this be any type of bug or setting that I need to work with?

Thanks in advance for the help.

(Second time I have tried to write this) Windows 10, just updated. Firefox says it's up to date

So, I get gmailed a notice of an autopay extraction from our checking account to pay our May bill.

When I go to print it (paper and PDF), the Firefox Print-setup pre-image shows the email as one would expect, but the final print product has split page one into two parts (Chrome doesn't do this so far as I can tell):

(1) a page with the gmail headings, dates, times all by themselves at the top of a page, and

(2) the de-headed, de-time-stamped body of the message.

For bookkeeping, you want these two items to stay together on the same page. Right?

So I hie me off to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox

I did "Reset Firefox printer setting" to no avail, so I went on to

"Reset all Firefox printer settings" where they point you at the prefs.js file, where you are to delete all lines starting with "print_". But there seems not be any lines starting with "print_".

After my browser updated to 77.0.1(64bit), it won't load https://addons.mozilla.org. I get a "403 Forbidden" on my screen. Other sites, including mozilla.org, load fine.

I disabled uBlock. I cleared my cache, cookies, etc. I unchecked "Enable DNS". I reinstalled 77.0.1 over my current installation. No luck.

When I disable the VPN on my router, I CAN access https://addons.mozilla.org. I use Mullvad Wireguard VPN on my GL.iNet GL-AR750S.

Before the FireFox update, I did not have this issue. I don't know how this will effect my installed addons. I doubt they will auto-update unless I somehow whitelist the url to bypass my VPN.

I will pass the issue on to Mullvad, as well.

Thanks
