duplicate of /questions/1433655 thread.

Hello! I've been encountering this issue lately where when I have multiple (i.e. 2) Firefox windows open, clicking into one window from the other places a large solid gray 'cover' over the original window. I'm including 2 screenshots - one with no gray (left window active) and one with the gray 'cover' (right window active).


Unknown what causes this at this time

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1440193]
When I open Firefox, the tabs from the previous session do not open despite the setting. I end up with a start page showing only a new tab page. This has been happening over the past few days and I don't know why.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening.

I has notebook ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 with i5-1135g7. First time I discovered problem in Firefox 95. I used win 10. HW decode stop working at all. I don't changed anything(no new version of driver have been installed, no browser update, bios and etc) hw decode just stop working in Firefox. Edge and video players still use hw decode. I tried to reinstall firefox with fully cleared(remove Mozilla folders from appdata and clear temp folder) but it don't solve the problem. Recently I hear that in firefox 100 av1 will be accelerated with hw decode. I decided to make clean install of win 11. And in clear system(no matter win 10 or win 11) firefox use hw decode. I was happy with it, but no long. When I turn ac charge off and tried to start youtube video it tried to start in 10-20 seconds and then plaing without hw decode. And It not changed back when I connect ac charge back and make reboot. And clear install of firefox also has no effect. I think it in the same state as it was before windows reinstall. It can be matter than I set windows settings for ac mode max performance and for battery mode max energy efficiency. Also I had klite codec pack installed but all work with it while I was on ac(and other programs continue work now).

I think hw decode very matter for notebooks battery lifetime. I sad that I had to use edge to watch youtube. I hasn't problems like this in my desktop pc with nvidia card(but it always in max performance mode).

At least I watching how to reset firefox hw decode state to find which is cause problems(windows energy saving settings, codec pack or something else). I not found any information about this.

New computer, running Windows 11, McAfee LiveSafe came with for 30 day trial. I use Firefox, have since 1997. Just added Mozilla VPN. Old computer ran Xubuntu. Windows 11 needs antivirus because it's Windows. So. How compatible are McAfee LiveSafe and Firefox with Mozilla VPN? What suggestion, if any, does Mozilla have for an antivirus program that will work well for Windows 11 but not mess with Firefox and Mozilla VPN? Thank you.

My picture-in-picture remains in full screen, even if I double click with my mouse. When I click the ESC button it just closes completely. I have restarted both Firefox and my computer, but I keep getting the same problem. Not just in YouTube either, also on other websites.

First, I apoligize if this is not correctly posted here but this kind of fit multiple categories.

I love Firefox and have used it for quite a long time. However, recently I have had multiple issues, most which have not been resolved. This issue however needs to get fixed because I cannot do this every time. For some reason, if I close the browser and open it again, my account has been disconected and it wants me to log in again. I did find a post regarding this from 10 months ago which a user stated the following:

"Your ‘logged-in’ status is stored in special cookies. If the cookie is removed, you are logged out.


You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off."

I followed this hoping it would be the end of it but it still keeps on happening. If I can't get a solution to this, I will have to use another browser. I hate to think that will happen as no other browser has been as good a fit as Firefox but as I am sure you can imagine, this is getting to be too difficult of a process to do 10-20 times a day.

Thank you for reading and I hope someone has some sort of idea on how I might overcome this annoyance. Stay safe and healthy!

Firefox browser opens minimized - about half size. Support article suggests a refresh, tried that and it works for the first time the browser is opened after the refresh and then reverts to the same size.

Another suggestion was to delete the xulstore.json file as it may be corrupt. Done that several times. Each time, that solution works for the first time the browser is opened. Beginning with the second time, the behavior returns.

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Same result. Works for the first time the browser is opened.

I have no extensions or plug-ins installed other then what exists from the default browser. I am running the current version of Firefox, Windows 11, fully updated system with plenty of RAM and disk space.

Thanks!

The menu in selected websites do not show typical icons. I only see words and they are in large font; the words run over each other. (Please see attached screenshot for one website.) This issue renders functionality of the website inoperable. This issue happens to about 40-50% of the websites I interact with.

For the same website in Chrome, this issue does not occur.

How to fix this in Firefox? Thank you.

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.
