On (maximized) startup, the border surrounding a page's content is too large (image Startup.jpg).

The issue is easy to see when Firefox is resized. The border for an 898 pixel wide window (898.jpg) is very large, while enlarging the window one pixel (899.jpg) results in a small or non-existent border.

(Windows-7/32 bit) I'm using the left sidebar to display my bookmarks. The last few FireFox updates have caused a problem (currently running 101.0.1 but have noticed the problem with previous versions). Unpredictably, when changing web pages, the bookmarks menu just rolls up for no apparent reason. Hitting CTRL-B/CTRL-B restores it, but it's also an annoyance, it does it several times a day. Why does it do that at all? Anyone have any ideas?

So, I've migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and it's great, but I have a couple of issues now. One of them is with web push notifications from Google. First, I had an issue with notifications not showing up at all (or maybe they do show up, but the timeout is short and I miss them), but I've solved that with this in about:config set to tru:

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled

Now, notifications do stay on until I click them, but when I click them, all they do is close, disappear. And I'm talking only about YouTube notifications, when I get them from other websites, they work fine, I click on them and the proper link opens.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Hi, Using Windows 7(32bit), Firefox v101.0.1 (32bit) most updated at this time. Some days before the URL "https://web.whatsapp.com" was just working fine with Firefox (can be seen as bookmark in screenshot), but today it stopped loading at all. No error message, no QR code, nothing, only a deep silence. As a way to troubleshoot the problem, I tries to disable Avast, connect to a VPN etc. but with no luck. I thought it might be a problem with the site so decided to give a try to another browser. Downloaded and installed the Chrome and the required page is just fine in Chrome. Don't know why it's no loading in Firefox. No linked devices there on my mobile phone, so have to link my PC as a new device, but no QR code to scan. Firefox is my favorite and default browser for a long time and I don't want to lose it anyway. Please help. Thanks.

My software router isn't configured with a certificate so when I log in to router settings via its webGUI using my local domain IP address 192.168.*.* I get and accept the insecure message and can edit the router settings. However when I save the router configuration to my hard drive I get the file name placeholder with zero bytes. Obviously that's bad news if you go back to the XML file and find zero bytes. I tried adding 192.168.*.* to FF site exceptions. That gets the Webgui past the warning messages but the XML backup file the router wants to save is still zero bytes. This doesn't happen with Chrome.

What can I do?

Thanks

So, here's how CenturyLink responded to my recent "cry for help" (as Rick Astley sang . . .).

I am sorry to hear of the issues you faced trying to find an email address for CenturyLink. There is a known issue with Firefox not working with our website. The best way to access our website is by using Google Chrome and making sure the pop up blockers are not activated. Unfortunately, as the issue is with the Firefox browser, there is nothing we can do to fix that issue.

Well, guess it's time . . . after all these years . . . to rethink my interest in Firefox, eh?

I had a partial crash of Firefox browser where some windows with multiple tabs closed. I believe it was caused by my processor overheating. After correcting my processor overheating issue and restarting, the remaining windows that were open before the reboot restored as the previous session but the windows and tabs that crashed did not recover. Would those be backed up anywhere?

Long time ago (the latest revision 2-3 year ago) this was working but since many versions now I have this problem. Now I'm, with 102.0 and the issue is: Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to xxxxxxxx. A PKCS #11 module returned CKR_GENERAL_ERROR, indicating that an unrecoverable error has occurred.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_PKCS11_GENERAL_ERROR

I have a hardware token (smart card) and I have added in the Security Devices -> Device Manager. I'm logged in. I'm using ESET and turned off SSL/TLS protocol filtering. No other antivirus software on my PC. I created a new profile - same problem persists. So I use Edge to open that site only - which works fine.

Hi, as of today July 2, 2020, I can no longer drag and drop tabs in Firefox to reposition them. Earlier today I had restarted firefox and an update had been pushed through.

I have tried to restart Firefox in safe mode without any extensions, but the problem persists. I don't want to "refresh" firefox and start from scratch. I've opened Chrome and can still drag and drop tabs there just fine.

Please fix this ASAP!

The drop-down menu for the address bar on my computer now has little pin images over the icons. I used to have 10 sites listed, but now there's just 8, and a couple of them are sites I don't use anymore, but I can't remove them; I highlight them and hit Shift-Delete, but they won't go away! I don't know what the new update did, but I want this fixed.

Hi

Some months ago I added a 32" samsung usb screen to my PC, my operating system is windows 7, This maybe coincidental and not at fault. Since adding the screen my Firefox browser crashes, what happens is the screen starts flashing and most of the display disapears you can click on some buttons if displayed or you know where they are but the only way to stop it is to close and reopen the browser, it seems to happen more frequently in a browsing session once its happend once, sometimes it dosn't happen. It seems to be triggered by the mouse scrolling wheel. I have removed and reloaded Firefox but still the same, when reloading it recognises the previous instalation and recalls some previous settings, I don't seem to be able to stop this happening. Lastly the fault does not occur on any other browser. Firefox is my default and prefered browser and I would like to cure this if possible, I have run virus scans etc and dont appear to have any contamination issues.

Any advise gratefully recieved

Many thanks Steve Hull

If I start opening a hundreds-megabyte PDF, or a JS-heavy website, or a server just do not respond at all, I expect that when I'll press "Stop" button browser would... emm... stop: stop trying to render the rest of the page, stop trying to establish the connection... But notning happens. I don't see any reactions to Stop button. The only way to stop the download is to close the tab (I'm not sure, I hope it stops). By the way, it is especially "nice" when the program closes together with the closing of the last (as suddenly will be realized later) tab.

So, there is the "Stop/Reload" button. Does it do something like stop something? Or it is purely decorative/irritative? Or I just press it wrong way?
