it's extremely annoying to have to stop what i'm doing and play "lets find the active tab" when i have tons of youtube videos qued in open tabs. in opera, the logic is there out of the box, but in firefox, it doesn't exist. why such logic wouldn't exist is beyond me, but i see this as an annoying problem that needs fixed. i want to simply glance up at the tabs and see which one is playing without having to spend time digging through the open tabs to find the one that's playing or having to freakin memorize which one it was i don't have time for that.

i followed the guide in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291998 i did exactly everything as instructed but it did absolutely nothing, no change at all.

I'm currently using a Windows 10 desktop computer most of the time, but will need to use a Windows 11 laptop for research travel several times over the next several months.

Will it be possible to copy my profile from Win 10 to the Win 11 computer, use the Win 11 computer for a few weeks, and then copy the profile back to the Win 10 computer?

Or is there something different about Firefox working with Win 10 or Win 11 that would keep this from working for me?

(BTW: Using Sync would probably not be feasible.)

Advice will be much appreciated!

I haven't used this laptop (Win10) in a few days, but FFox just updated to 103.0.2 and the icon in the taskbar is no longer there. It's a "blank page" looking thing. Wow. After years of having FFox in my taskbar, I'm surprised by how disorienting this is. LOL.

I unpinned from the taskbar, and the icon appeared for a half second before it went away. Re-pinned, and the blank page icon is back. Creating a shortcut for the desktop works just fine, but I'm used to the taskbar.

Obviously, I can deal with this, but I thought y'all should know that this broke in the last update. At least, for me, it did.

Thanks,

I have noticed issues with; when I download an attachment, i.e.graphics file, that the browser closes.

I have my emails configured where Yahoo and gmail available by selecting. Sometimes Yahoo mail will close and Gmail will remain open, Firefox doesn't crash but somehow closes either gmail or yahoo but not both???

I can no longer use Yahoo Mail on Firefox and have had to move to Chrome and Bing in the short term.

1) Contacts no longer show up when starting to compose a mail

2) Writing a mail - the CTRL key no longer work. CTRL I opens a Page Info CTRL B Opens Bookmarks etc....

3) None of the buttons work at the top -Move -Delete -Spam

Basically, Firefox is useless for Yahoo Mail now!

Firefox is normally the best, but not yesterday or today.

Hope it can be fixed soon.

So, the old problem of double spacing is back. Luckily only on bookmarks menu and sidebar, but even so it's annoying.

Has there been any progress with finding a solution for this perennial nuisance?

Also, the userchrome.css fixes I've used previously don't seem to be working. What's the latest fix to be used?

I've saved and can use the log-in details for a particular site, but they doesn't show up in the password list, so I cannot edit/delete them. Whilst it may not be relevant and may confuse the issue more, the reason I want to delete log-in + password is because I have to create a new account every 2-3 months, which I then save. So when loading the home page, the current and all previously saved log-ins get listed. I've tried to manually delete one when on the home page, but unlike keystroke searches which do get deleted, this one remains in the list. I suppose I could clear everything and save all the log-in details for each site again, but why are the log-ins for one particular site not showing up ?

Thanks

I am pasting this video link first to show exactly is happening when I use Google Images Search results. https://youtu.be/HD-GPkORQPA

This happened suddenly. Everything was fine when I last used google image results, I was playing a game and when I alt+tabbed to search for something, this was happening. I have no idea what could have caused it since I didn't install any new extensions, CSS styles, programs in my PC nor any big changes that would give me an idea of where to start.

I already tried disabling all the extension and that didn't help at all. The only way I've managed to make this stop, was when I opened a private window. There the image search results were fine and I could zoom in, and out and no weird scrollbar issues were happening.

I went back to a normal window in Firefox, and noticed that if I log out from my Google account, this will also fix the issue. And when I logged back in, the issue was happening again.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen, and how I can fix it? Thank you!

Today, web pages started showing small numbered boxes behind each element on a webpage. As you move down the page, the numbers are in sequence. I tried the font settings. They are all set at what they should be. I also tried the config settings, no joy. If I restart in troubleshooting mode, the boxes go away. Note: I am using Linux Mint, and Firefox just updated yesterday to V103.0.2. Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox just changed.

For over a decade I had a Bookmarks tab on my Bookmark menu, and now that's gone away. I have that whole setup very keenly arranged with folders-in-folders and now I either have to futz with several more buttons than I used to, or do a pop-up window with Ctrl+Shift+O to manage bookmarks when all I want to do is go to my bookmarks menu as before, select the right folder-in-folder, and then "Open all Tabs."

How do I get a Bookmarks icon to click as before without going into another menu for do the Manage Bookmarks when I don't need to manage anything? Speed and accuracy is important, and this is neither fast nor accurate without that icon/tool.

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

I'm a hobby-programmer not trained. My doc is local php file, saving calendar events to text files, run on localhost. The field in question is a line number on my calendar. Javascript uses that number to load another input with the calendar entry so I can confirm that it's the correct line before submitting it to PHP for deletion. I have unchecked 'Remember search and form history', ran 3 cleaners, restarted the computer and the data is (correctly) not displayed. But it is not deleted. When I rechecked 'Remember search and form history' the old input data comes back. If I change id, field name, javascript function name and variable names the history disappears but when I restore those names, the history is back. I want to know why that input can't be permanently deleted. Windows 10, Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)
