Condition. 2-1 modern laptop with Windows 10, latest Firefox. In tablet mode, selecting a text field "raises" the on-screen keyboard for text entry only to be "killed". Problem is exclusive only to Firefox.

Desired action: OSK stays on screen until closed.

Context. This appears to have been a historical problem:

2016 Issue

2020 Issue The suggested workaround here disables a user-desired option of a hidden taskbar.

How do I stop Firefox moving the cursor to the address bar instead of focusing on the search box on my home page. The new "feature" means I have to either erase the address bar or click on the search box before I can start a search. It's not a big thing but it was fine before when I had the option to open the home page with the cursor already on the page.

Hi, The playback speed function has never worked for me on my PC Firefox browser with Windows 10. I have to use the Google Chrome browser to use that function. The playback speed on my Android YT app works fine too. But it's frustrating to have to keep opening the Google Chrome browser in order to speed up videos on the PC.

Environment: Firefox 85.0.1 (64 bit); Windows 10 (64 bit) I have established a websocket connection to my server. Everything is working fine in updating the several browser windows. With Firefox I got a problem. After I call my page with Firefox, actualization via the websocket connection are displayed fine in Firefox and other browser windows. My problem: If I call my page in Firefox and send data via <form> (simple generate a PDF without page refresh) my window didn't show the updates received via the websocket connection. It looks like, the connection to the server is lost or the incoming data is blocked/lost.

This is a problem just on Firefox. All other browser I tried (Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, Opera, Cliqz, Brave) are working fine.

I have noticed in the recent Firefox updates, Roboform will no longer display underneath the Firefox browser window. I have followed all the steps to ensure it is enable and search Google to find resolution and nothing resolves the issue. Anyone have a fix for this? (Roboform menu works with my other browsers EDGE, Chrome, IE) Also, I noticed that under Roboform options, I can see that Firefox doesn't have a checkmark next to it, even though I reinstall Rboform and I attempt to install the add-in from this window? (see pic.)

Thank you in advance!

So, i have used the Microsoft Edge browser for some time. Now im back at Firefox due to that the one thing with Edge just stopped working.

I was with Edge able to pin websites to the taskbar (Facebook and Twitter) in Windows 10. This made them work as individual apps, with a small notification on the icon.

Is there any way i could do this in Firefox? My english isnt good, so i have a hard time to search this.

This began Feb 6, one day after my PC updated to Firefox 85.0.1. That may or may not mean anything.

I have been watching Spectrum TV for years using Firefox. Yesterday, the picture was blurry on all channels. I attempted to capture a still part of the picture. There is no stuttering - it looks a lot like somebody over zoomed a photo ( Zoom is 100%.). I have the same issue on multiple monitors, and everything else I display with Firefox, including YouTube videos, is normal.

When I watch Spectrum TV on MS Edge. the picture is normal.

Any idea what may be going on?

I have updated and rinsed my password in Firefox, so now i have 48 saved logins. When I later installed a password manager I did a import from Firefox. But, the password manager found and imported 103 passwords! From what can see I think they are old passwords that I have deleted. If I open saved password in Firefox there are only 48 passwords... So where does the password manager find the other 55 ones?

Please help, this is kind of worrying. If one delete password they should be gone!

When i go to another website it doesnt matter what website i go to i sends me back to my homepage AFTER ive typed in the address. Its the correct address but keep getting sent back twice before i can only then go to that website. I thought the problem might have been my OS ( windows 10 Pro 64 bit) 20h2 Latest build but its not. Ive gone as far to even doing a clean install ( fresh) of windows 10 Pro 64 bit. IM running ublock and the Kaspersky Protection for plugins and have tried removing\disabling them at times to see if they are the problem also with no luck. Im running Firefox Version 85.0.1 ( 64 bit)
