I have a problem with FF73 on my Windows 8 tablet. So in FF72 and all previous versions double tapping on YouTube videos switched between fullscreen and windowed modes of said videos, yet with FF73 for some reason double tapping now does fast forward/fast backwards 10 seconds actions depending on where I tap on the screen, which is something I understand is an expected behaviour on Android and other mobile oriented operating systems. I hate it and want double tap to go to it's old functionality. Going back to FF72 does fix the problem, so the problem is not on YouTube's end. Also going back to the previous version of FF creates a whole set of annoying problems, so it's obviously not optimal. I wonder if there is some hidden config setting introduced in FF73 that tells YouTube I'm on a tablet specifically, which was not previously shared? Any ideas?

I have to keep reinstalling everything and losing most of my files in the process. I'm tired of trying to talk to Microsoft because they don't care. Is Windows going to be better or should I just get rid on my computer? I have lost all of my Architectural Specifications and closed down my business. Microsoft doesn't care and tells me to go someplace else if I don't like their Programs. I would someone to show me how to fix this mess.

Hi, This PC I am working on now is always seen as a Win 8 machine when I am using Firefox. The machine is a Win 10 unit. All my other units are read as the correct operating system, and as this is the only one that runs Firefox, I believe I should discuss it with you. The problem only is acute when using this to access secure sites or to buy online. The machine is seen as suspect at all times. Also I struggle with Windows Updates deleting and damaging the operations at every tiny "update." I never use Edge. When they make me helpless, I switch to a Mac. Other than placing updates on delay, which works now and then, is there any other way to cut off microsoft? Gregory Burke ...

Lately, I've been getting too much junk in my inbox. For instance, someone offering me 'rewards', wanting me to 'sign up', etc. i delete them all. For quite a while, my inbox stayed quite 'clean', but what happened, I don't know. Thought I was keeping up with security settings, etc., but maybe i'm missing something ? Above all, though, I'd like to say how satisfied I am with using Firefox-have been using it for a long time ! Never had issues I couldn't solve by asking for help, or just checking settings. Thanks, Firefox !

1. Firefox apparently disconnects in Wordpress when making revisions to pages. 2. Toolbar in Firefox does not work when the main tab is open (or is extremely slow - hard to tell the difference). 3. Twitter links to threads, articles and embedded videos does not work most of the time. 4. Everything is slower.

I'm using Windows 8 - and have no intention of upgrading as I am gradually migrating to Linux. Should I revert to older version of Firefox? None of this happened with earlier versions.

Thanks

Hellow all

An unexpected firefox crash has completely ruined where I was before. I am completely bewildered over this one. I lost my bookmarks so I´ve selected toolbars and the bit regarding new folder but nothing happens. This step by step approach isn´t working and in no time a time out occurs. I cannot restore and opening a new tab all I get is an unstoppable wheel. It´s pretty hopeless.

Has anyone any ideas ? rich

The above Malware has attached itself to my browser and is blocking many of my searches! Times out and falure to connect messages keep popping up on my screen :(

How do I get reliable advice on how to remove it?

I do not wish to purchase additonal software I alread use Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, ccleaner and laso the Firfox promise of 100% security :(

None of these are addressing my problem as they cannot find it which really puzzles me!!

It is another Microsoft hidden gem as this has only started since a recent update to my Win 10
