On screen 'buttons' don't work when using Firefox but work with other browsers.

When connecting to the following web site the on screen 'buttons' DONATE and DONATE NOW don't function when using Firefox.

Firefox is my default browser and has been for many years. If I copy and paste the link into another browser e.g. Chrome, the function as expected. Is this a fault with Firefox or with the particular website?

I added a keyboard shortcut to Share/Mail and it fails. The menu flashes when the key combination is pressed, but a new mail message is not created. If I use the trackpad to select this menu item, a new mail message is created. I created another shortcut for the Eyedropper and this works.

Continuing to have issues with pinned tabs and, worse, Firefox crashing...like y'day with loss of all pinned tabs on powering up today?! Have posted issue several times with "FredMcD" being unable to help but who escalated the problem...with no response from Mozilla/Firefox! Needlessly spending a great deal of time restoring pinned tabs but sometimes cannot find them all. Does the "800 lbs" Mozilla care?

Log in accepts email and password, then sends authorization code, but when code is entered screen refreshes to display "Incorrect password" and strangely changes the correct email address to an old address that has never been associated with this brand new MacBook Pro.

Note: the old email address was previously used with my Firefox Sync account years ago, but was changed.

Same result replicated several times.

I remain logged in on other devices. Only the new MacBook Pro has this issue.

I had a whole list of saved homepage landing sites that displayed when i open firefox they displayed above the main url/searchbar as shown in screenshot. These have all been deleted and i will need to spend hours to go and look them all up again . are these saved in any config files that i can re-add them ? Why are these being deleted and if this is not going to be saved going forward why do you still make this functionality available ? second, larger screenshot.

Please advise, this is the main reason I use firefox .... all previous updates these URL's remained until now, but if going fwd you dont support , i would suggest you remove the functionality. and I will remove firefox.

Hello, A few months ago, Firefox has not been loading Youtube videos properly. The video just never loads. Debugging steps I have done.

1) Disabled Hardware Acceleration 2) Deleted all cookies & cache 3) Ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode 4) Uninstalled Firefox & Reinstalled 5) Not a part of my debug but I recently did a fresh install of windows on my computer and installed Firefox with the same issue. I do get videos to work on both Edge and Chrome

I am at a loss at this point and any helping hints would be useful. I have an inkling that it might be put to my playback device but it wouldn't explain why it plays just fine on other browsers.

Any ideas?

FF 94.0.2 right click Context Menus hang and other issues since update from FF 88

Running ROCK SOLID Windows 7 SP 1 64 bit. Last week updated 64 bit FF from 88xx to 94.0.2. EVERYTHING was working fine with FF 88 except for videos on CNN.

After update when I right click in FF the small Context Menu freezes. Subsequent right clicks launches the same Menu. See attached image. When I mess around with scrolling they go away.

Also, when I'm going back and forth between a FF web page and a file in another app to cut and paste text or images, half of one or the other screens hang.

I'm an old geek and I did ALL of the recommendations including a complete clean uninstall and clean reinstall of FF 94.0.2... I've spent hours trying to solve the problem...

I'm having NO PROBLEMS with Chrome or Opera or any other SW on this PC.

BTW, DON'T EVEN SUGGEST GOING TO Windows 10 or 11. I have 10 but I use 7 on this PC for a lot of reasons.

Like I said, problems began after 94.0.2 update.

Regards,

Chas.

Dear Firefox community

I wonder if anybody else is experiencing problems with O’Reilly recently. I think the problem started more or less 2 weeks ago. The problem is that the page is not loaded at once, but more "on demand," that is, it loads once we scroll down (fig. oreilly_firefox_01). It takes like 1s or 2s to load to load the rest of the text (fig. oreilly_firefox_02). Maybe it's related with the last Firefox update. With Chrome it works as expected.

It's not a big issue, just annoying.

94.0.2 (64-bit) OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Education OS Version: 10.0.18363 N/A Build 18363

On macOS, with the proton update, there is a behaviour (taken from Chrome) that is to move down the tab bar when the mouse is going at the top of the screen and showing the menu bar. The issue is there's a massive gap that is incredibly annoying and will likely push me back to Chromium based browsers if not addressed. Every time my cursor goes up there I have this annoying gap pushing my tab bar too far down.

An example here: https://imgur.com/a/l7EeG2V

I find this behaviour irritating and would like, if possible, to disable it. Does anyone know if there is some about:config setting or userChrome.css that can do it?

Thank you
