I keep being told on certain websites to turn off my ad blocker. I don't have one. I don't even have one in the Extensions that's disabled. I have no idea how to get past this. What's turned on that I don't know about?

Recently, I've found I cannot successfully submit a superchat donation on Youtube while using Firefox. I was successful using Edge browser. Firefox asks to confirm the card number I'm using to chat, but then once acknowledged, the screen stays grey/white and doesn't ever clear to process the chat.

How do I actually get Firefox to start where I can browse something? I have downloaded it 3 times, and it downloads, and then it just sits there. How do I actually go to Firefox and search for something. I got a search bar ONE TIME, and when I put in the thing I was searching for, I got an immediate message that the system crashed and I should try again. How do I get an actual SEARCH BAR to come up and let me do something? Even now, it is sitting there, asking me to download it again. I don't see the point in constant downloading with no result. Firefox is REALLY IRRITATING to try and use.

My main browser is Google, with Gmail as my email. I have Windows 11 installed.

For ages I've had my tabs automatically restored when opening Firefox. But as of the last few days it won't. The old links are saved so I can restore them one by one through history but that's not automatic. And if I click on restoration in History it will bring up a whole bunch of old tabs not neccessarily from the last session.

I'm on the same computer as I've been for over a year, so I don't know what what the problem is. I've searched on it and tried to re-check the box for this function. But it won't apply...

As the title says when I am using the video player on Coursera website I am not able to hide the control bar while on fullscreen mode (even if I don t move my mouse for more than 15 seconds). I ve attached a screenshot with the control bar being displayed. (also the captions are overlapping with that control bar) I ve also tried different ways of opening the fullscreen mode (click on the "Full Screen" button or by pressing 'F'). I don t have this problem on websites like YouTube.

Dear community,

since some recent update I am asked for a primary password every time I open the browser, which is higly annoying. I like my passwords protected by a primary password and in former times it was only asked for when trying to reveal a saved password. I know this has probably to do with me using Firefox sync, because I use the browser on my Android too but I would like to keep my devices synced. Besides: On my phone I am only asked for a fingerprint when accessing passwords, not every single time I open the app. There must be a way to reconfigure this on a desktop, right?

Firefox Developer Edition starts up at a fixed position and size

I am running Firefox Developer Edition (123.0b1) on Windows 11 and every time I start Firefox it maximises and then resizes to a set size with the maximise button set to restore size mode (I.e. the window thinks it is maximised). I have followed the steps detailed for this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1411093 however that does not resolve my issue. This has only started recently after I turned the laptop into a tablet and back again. Once I "restore" the window and then I maximise the window it works as expected. However it is very annoying. Also if I start another instance of Firefox this new instance does not exhibit the same behavior.


Computer: HP Envy OS: Windows 11 with all current updates and as far as I can tell AI is turned off using a group policy.

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!
