If I open multiple browser windows, each one moves about 1/4 inch to the right of the previous browser window. So if for example I opened 12 new browser windows, the 12th one would end up about 3 inches to the right of the first one. This is most annoying. How do I get each new browser window to open in precisely the same place as the previous browser window already open?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Until recently the articles on MSN.com were left justified with ads present to the right of the article. However, now the articles are centered instead of left justified. This is causing the ads to the right to obscure the right portion of the article's content and thus rendering it unreadable.

Has anyone else come across this, or know what might be done to fix it. I have enabled ad-blockers and also tested with the ad-blockers off. This did not solve the problem

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I opened Firefox today, it did an update before loading and when I opened my hotmail.com all the messages in my Focused folder were gone including one I needed to respond to today. There was picture of a hot air balloon and a message saying "All done for the day. Hope you enjoy your empty Inbox". I checked the Other tab, the Deleted and Junk folders but nothing from my Inbox was there.

I can't open amazon.com. I've disabled my antivirus and have tried in 'troubleshoot' mode. I have cleared my cache. I have flushed my DNS. It's been going on for days. I keep timing out. Other sites do not exhibit problems. Chrome DOES open amazon.com quickly.

One of my favorite web sites is www.cam4.com. It is an adult live streaming web site. My computer freezes when I'm watching one of the "performers". I refresh the page all is OK for min. or so.

When I use MS Edge I don't get the freezing. Firefox is my default browser for more years than I can count. What is going on? Is there a fix?

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

This is not a big issue but I have to double touch the “X” to close Firefox on my touch screen Dell XPS 13. If I use the cursor and click on the “X” Firefox closes fine. Chrome, Edge, etc. close with a single touch so this appears to be unique to Firefox. I opened Firefox in safe mode but it still required a double touch. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple times. I have tried this on a similar laptop with the same results (i.e., required a double touch). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

Firefox is causing 100% disk utilization on Windows 10 Pro PC

Beginning about a month ago, I started noticing that Firefox was causing disk utilization on my Windows 10 Pro PC to go up to 100 % disk utilization and stay there for 2 or 3 minutes. My PC was timing out on other applications. Eventually it would return to normal levels but as I'd continue to use it and open additional tabs and windows of Firefox, the problem would repeat and get worse.

As time went on, I started getting to periods where the PC would become completely unresponsive and the disk utilization would to to 100% and stay there for 10+ minutes. I'd be forced to do a shutdown/restart but that might take as long as 15 minutes to shutdown.

Firefox (64 bit) v107.0 is what's currently installed on my system. My PC is a Dell Precision desktop with 16 GB of memory and a 1 TB WD Blue SSD for the C: drive.

I did try the Firefox refresh but that had no effect.

I started using Chrome and do not have any disk usage issues with it. I've also used MS Edge as well and disk utilization stays at normal levels, even with 10 or more tabs or windows open simultaneously.

I searched online and have seen complaints about Firefox causing this problem but all those are from 3+ years ago. Nothing recent. One fix suggested uninstalling the 64 bit version and going with the 32 bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris

Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}
