Hi, I have found issues recently trying to get to certain website addresses where I end up with a blank page when using Firefox. These previously worked fine. I then used the same address on MS Edge and I get to the site and the the page I wish to be on. I have to admit that this did not happen prior to my installing MS Edge. Interstingly, the two websites I found this happening had to do with approaching Photo-Voltaic websites, one being FoxESS (Chinese Equipment Manufacturer's data logging facility) and the other being SMA (a German similar Manufacturer's data logging facility). I think this has nothing to do with the sector they represent but is a reaction of my Windows 10 system having another program from MS that wishes to dominate their opposition's performance. (Is this me being paranoid?).

The first one to do this, was when I approached "https://www.foxesscloud.com/bus/device/inverter" and the second one was "https://www.sunnyportal.com/FixedPages/HoManEnergyRedesign.aspx" These require 'logins' when you get there. I would be happy to pass these on to you if it is necessary.

I have endeavoured to get away from MS from time to time, but it does not seem to be a simple exercise. So I tend to go with the flow that works.

By the bye, I use system cleaning software regularly (Glary Utilities 5, MalwareBytes) and some others occasionally and all seem to say they get rid of 'trackers' and and 'malware'). I also use Kaspersky for internet protection and that seems to work well. So my system seems 'clean', but whether MS has buried something somewhere I cannot assess. As it is only affecting a couple of sites, I think I may be experiencing something quite different. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello.

I am trying to view the ICD-11 (International Classification of Diseases 11th Revision) in my Firefox web browser however the website is not loading properly or, more likely, is loading in a way that prevents/restricts proper access.

Here is a link to the website: https://icd.who.int/browse11/l-m/en

The website works when loaded in Microsoft Edge and displays a left side window with the contents of the ICD-11 classifications. The ICD-11 search bar also works and displays the results of the search in the left side window. Neither of these things occur when using Firefox.

I have limited 'tech skills' when it comes to this, any help would be much appreciated.

Kindest Regards,

Andy

With Devtools open and Responsive Design Mode active, selecting a device from the Device list and then right-clicking causes the context menu to appear in the lower right of the screen (figure-1 or first image if filenames aren't shown).

Depending on where I click, the menu shrinks (figure-2, second image).

Using the same device, if I type, "412" in the width box, it changes to Responsive Design Mode. After that, it works as it should (figure-3, last image). Notice that I clicked in the exact same spot as the first image.

I've tried safe mode; deleting all my profiles; none of those worked.

Hello FF/Moz Community,

I want to right-click on links and open them in a new tab (easy). BUT I want to stay on the original tab where I'm clicking the links. Currently when I right-click a link FF opens the new tab and I'm moved to active tab. The original tab is one or ten tabs to the left.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

Thank you.

The settings i saved just keep resetting at least once every two weeks, it's so hassle to change it back again to my preferred settings. e.g. Using Google as my default search engine, but after some time, it will reset as "Browser default" and the engine will change to Yahoo; It also happen when using a custom url. Just keep resetting!

Another issue I encounter: When I change the resolution of a video I'm watching on Youtube (from 720p to 1080p or above), it suddenly gets laggy; you can hear the audio from it but the visual itself gets laggy.

Hope you can fix it, Thank You!

Something has changed in a Firefox upgrade. I previously could change the print preference through about:config by changing print.tab_modal.enabled from =True to =False. It's not working now, and the default FF print dialogue does not link properly to the printer. I nominate print in Black, and it prints in colour, regardless.

How can I prevent websites from tracking my mouse cursor? I was searching for the question for a long time and couldn't find any answers.

Basically. I open a site, I want to click on Back or close the tab and it sends a pop up like "wait, don't go!" etc.

Any ideas? I think about extension or option in settings/configs.

I guess like my question is very unique or was skipped by search engines.

I hope for help.

In the past when I said download the attached file said file would open in a new window using my apps. If a word file, LibreOffice writer would be used, or if a jpg then my micro digital software would be used. NOW, it will only download (save on my computer). Have tried the "settings, general, application, action" and set these to what I wanted to use however that did not work.

What needs to be done to open these on line, do not want to save

Just got a new laptop with Windows 11, installed Firefox, and am running FF 98.0.1. When scrolling on some pages, the buttons look like they're constantly flashing. But if I scroll slowly, I can see that the button color is itself scrolling within the button boundary. Or at least, that's what it looks like. Attached a sequence of images to show what I mean. Can anyone help? It's so irritating that I might be forced to use a different browser, which I don't want to do! This didn't happen on my old laptop running Window 10.
