Today I am observing some odd behaviour with the restart and not now buttons for update. The dialog is clearly still supposed to be visible, however is is more of a graphics artifact.
Click on the windows task bar, change pages and the buttons disappear. once they appear they appear in every tab. To make them appear, move the mouse over them. I am assuming that a Firefox restart will fix the issue and do the requested update. I am making the report because this should not happen with professionally developed software. Firefox should be past the odd graphics glitches of the past.

Hi all. Seems like after updates, my computer slows down. It has become so recognizable, I know when the registry errors appear, as my computer performance falls off. I must use Reginout Registry cleaner, and CC Cleaner to restore performance. Along with any FireFox updates, my bookmarks have all been deleted many times over. I no longer attempt to re-install, as they continually get deleted, and so simple fix is available to me that I can understand. Thank you.

I don't normally save and restore sessions, but do have firefox set to restore the previous session in the event of a crash.
Recently, following a power cut, such a session restore occurred, correctly restoring all the pages I had open at the time (not many), and the scroll position within the page.
Since this happened, any page I open on one particular site (https://www.theguardian.com) now always scrolls to the end of the page, and I have to manually scroll back up to the top. Once loaded, you can scroll the page normally, but F5 refresh will reload the page and scroll to the end again. This effect is persistent across restarts, and I've not found a way to get rid of it.
I've tried simulating another crash with that site open, scrolled to the top, and I've tried enabling saving the session on exit and restoring on startup - none of this has changed anything. In both cases it restored the session and scrolled to the end.
Any suggestions as to where this effect might be coming from?

I was browsing as normal when I navigated to a site I have been to many times and that I consider reputable (Etsy) and the browser immediately went to a screen that said something about how Firefox had done updates in the background and I needed to click a button to "Restart Firefox." Obviously this looked fishy to me and I didn't click; instead I killed Firefox via the command line and then restarted it. When I did, one of my windows didn't look right (I had two windows open, each with several tabs)-- the tab bar at the top just cut off halfway through one of the tabs instead of me being able to scroll over. In addition, right after I was playing a game on my computer and part of the game board froze. Now everything seems normal. Is it possible I managed to end up with some malware even though I didn't click on the link? Has anyone seen this particular scam before?

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue
To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.
Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

The Problem: I recently noticed that decoding youtube videos in 2160p60fps is choppy beyond recognition.
Diagnose: While playing said videos in firefox i was able to observe in the task manager that actually none of my graphics cards video decoding capabilities were used. At lower video qualities/resolutions the hardware accelerated video decoding of the graphics card was also not kicking in, but in these cases my cpu was still able to cope with the decoding load, so I never noticed the missing hardware acceleration. To narrow the origin of problem down I tried watching the same videos in edge, chrome and even downloaded a short 2160p60fps clip to play with VLC and everything worked fine, just not in my favorite browser firefox :(
What i already did trying to solve the problem (in order): -Restart Firefox without addons -Refresh Firefox -Create a new Profile
Additional Info: Nvidia Driver Version 441.20
If there is anymore useful info I'm more than happy to provide it.
Thanks for taking the time reading this an providing help.

Everyday I visit several online newpapers both in the UK and the USofA. My problem is unique to one UK paper namely the " Express". After logging onto the Express the front page partially loads i.e most of the text and some of the graphics. At this stage the Blue loading circle revolves and sometimes will keep revolving for several minutes. I never do anything until the Blue circle stops revolving otherwise Ff stops responding. If and when it stops I then can proceed to read one article/piece, however if I then click the back arrow it will hang and usually I then get the message, Firefox has/is not responding. Most times after the first page has loaded ( text ) it can take several minutes for the graphics to fully load. I have looked at the crash reports but to be honest can not make head nor tail of them. I reiterate it is ONLY the Express that causes the problem. I have tried loading the Express whilst running Ff in Safe mode and can honestly state there is little or no difference. I have also checked the DL speed of the Express, sometimes it is well within the speed that is acceptable ( ie other newspapers DL speeds) and other times is it is crawling . And maybe I have just answered my question.

I used to be able to read and print pdf files such as bills that are regularly sent to me on the internet. After last update Adobe can't can't read the files or print them directly from Firefox browser. I get a message to save file. I have to save the file to computer then use Adobe to read the saved file. How do I fix?

New install of Firefox 56.0 on Kunbuntu 16.04 new install. Firefox crashes repeatedly at login pages of multiple websites. Have tried suggested fixes of clearing history, cache, setting cookie policies, etc. Reverted to default settings as recommended but no improvement. Tried to revert to 55.0.3 but can not start browser after unzipping tar file. No "installer" included with package that I can determine. Prefer to revert to earlier version.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have tried to get help with this. I am having a color problem that is messing me up all over the internet.

I need help. I have told this to you over 3 times with ZERO response. I am having problems with the colors on Firefox in Windows 10. When I am using yahoo to write email I can not see the 24 different colors or 24 different highlights. Just 24 shaded boxes. They are all the same color, so I have no idea what I may or may not be typing. This is also happening all over the internet if I need to enter information in a web sites "box".
I am handicapped and I don't have much of a life. I was hurt at work in 1989 and I have had 8 back surgeries with lots of hardware and fixes to repair the bent titanium rods and screws. I have cadaver bone in my back, I have had one neck surgery with an artificial disc. My doctors are so good, now, that Dr. Tortolani was the surgeon who actually invented the artificial disc. I also have had both shoulders rotator cuffs rebuilt and Tommy John surgery on my right elbow.
I don't have a big life and using the internet to look around and send and read email is a big part of my day.
I have been using Firefox and Windows for a very long time and I am most happy with the two. My 95 pound black lab puppy destroyed my computer at the end of September. She is HUGE and the vet says she will end over 125 pounds. I got a very old Dell from my parents closet that had no problems with Firefox and yahoo email colors. It did have lots of other problems including a dead battery and tons of very old and slow programs. I now have a new, to me a Sony computer, from my brother who basically stripped this computer clean.
My brother and sister in law used Firefox but never had a color problem. I have been told that I have a very good computer now.
I have downloaded and reloaded Windows 10 and the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 over and over 30+ times. I have had help doing this, but without any help to me or my computer.
I have followed all of your instructions to reset the colors to default. More about that below.***
After doing all of this I can still not see the colors in yahoo email. I am also having problems all over the internet seeing where I might need to type something.
Just like above when you asked me to Summarize your question in a sentence. I could not find where to type that. I had to go to Microsoft Edge and bring up that page to see where I needed to type. All I could see was Can't find an answer? Summarize your question..... . That was just plain white area with black letters. I could not see the box to type in.
All over the internet if I need to type in a box, I have no idea where that box is. I get no error messages, nothing, this computer thinks everything is working just fine. There are more places this happens than you might think. Thank goodness I know where to type on Google. I can't see that either. I just know where to go after using google for a long time like years long time.
I have had help and tried myself a total of three times to do your Firefox color reset and that hasn't worked. I know so because of the warranty statement. I can't get that to work today. WHY???? Who knows.
I only know I did this correctly because I got the message about the warranty the first 2 times I tried to reset the colors to default. Today when I tried the color reset AGAIN, I couldn't get to the correct spot and try to restore the colors to the default. So I am doing something wrong today trying the reset today. If I only had to click one place then the computer takes over and does the 4 steps. MAYBE if there was a problem and the 4 steps did or could not complete I could send you the error message and Firefox gets back to me with what went wrong.
LIKE I STILL CAN'T SEE THE COLORS. 90% is just black writing. I have a signature that should be in red and blue. It is only in black so it is not like I can't see colors but they are there. Everything I send is just black.
I need someone to please get back to me with this. I am at my wits end. I love Firefox and I don't want to use Edge or Explorer. Chrome is completely out of the question. I will be more than happy to let someone into my computer and figure out what the problem is.
I have a lot of things not working in my life right now I really need some help with this. I thank you in advance so much that you all could figure out what is wrong with this computer and Firefox. The colors work in Edge and Explorer but I want to use Firefox as that is what I know and use.
I know their is probably something very simple that you people at Firefox know what and how to fix this. I know, I worked at a call center for Southwestern Bell for 3 years, that you guys show to others how crazy problems that people need help with. I just need a few minutes of your time. I am more than happy to talk on the phone or chat or letting you look around in my computer. It's probably an easy 5 minute fix.
I thank you in advance for helping me, PLEASE.

I am more than happy to help to do tests........ Follow through. Sometimes, our volunteers would ask you for more information or to test out certain scenarios. The sooner you can do this, the sooner they would know how to fix it.
- (SIDE NOTE) Why when I know what the problem is. Exactly like this problem. You tell me to do 4 steps. Find the address bar type restore:colors,,,, might void warranty... 2 other things. Why CAN"T I JUST HIT I HAVE THIS PROBLEM AND MY COMPUTER DOES THE 4 STEPS ???????? I am usually lost after step 1. That just makes too much sense.
- (SIDE NOTE 2) It is very hard to find where to write this problem to you. My issue doesn't fit any of the other categories, I think it doesn't, so getting this to you is not the easiest. Try to do it yourself.
There is a NASCAR fan reactions that NASCAR ask about every week. It is called the NASCAR Fan Council. I was asked to join this at the very very beginning when they didn't quite know how to do. I was asked to join because it was impossible to ask the upper most levels of authority a question that I thought NASCAR should look at. When I finally got to an executive I said the same thing. Try to find yourself. He couldn't and I was asked to join the NASCAR Fan Council.
I am also asking management at Firefox to send a question to themselves and see how easy it is not. ****
