Upon installation of the newest versions (v83) of Firefox, Firefox became unresponsive: Unable to click weblinks, scroll, or even click on GUI menu bar options. Restarting in Safe Mode, refreshing, and uninstall/re-install of Firefox failed to solve these issues. Additional troubleshooting involved disabling accessibility, disabling DNS prefetch, adjusting memory cache, disabling network proxy, and etc. as put forth in various forum threads.

Only successful solution was to roll back to version 79 (Last known good version.)

I run Firefox, Firefox Nightly, and Firefox Developer Edition. This allows me to update one interface at a time, while retaining at least one active known good interface in reserve.

I am trying to use a program (video display) and when I press the button to allow adobe flash I get a very small long thing and an error that says something like "#error 3409" I have re-installed it. My addons say that I have shockwave flash installed. I have installed adobe flash several times with the same result. Perhaps I should remove shockwave flash and install again. I have no clue.

Thank you................

I hope this is appropriate here. If not, please direct me to where it is.

As new releases of Firefox (and Thunderbird too) come out, a constant question for me is whether the add-ons that are important to me (I use a lot) will be compatible with the new release. It would help if

(1) The Add-Ons web site always allowed me to specify release and OS. Sometimes that is allowed, sometimes not.

(2) The Add-Ons web site allowed me to specify a release before which I don't want to see add-ons listed.

(3) The Extensions page in Firefox allowed me to ask which of my extensions (enabled and/or disabled) are supported/not supported in a specified future release.

(4) When Firefox wants to install a new release, it reported on extensions that would become incompatible and always asked my permission to go ahead.

It probably would not be necessary to do all of these things, but I included them all because I don't know which are the most practical.

When I print out a multi-page description of a specific mutual fund, Firefox just omits in the middle of the printout several sections of information, without even leaving blank spaces for the omissions. If I go over to Edge for the same page, the printout is complete and perfect. This has been my long-term experience of Firefox compared to other major browsers. I have already implemented all of the advice on good printouts on Firefox, margins and other settings and so forth. When I posted about this issue perhaps two years ago, someone posted back that Firefox had never been designed to be a complete browser, and that printing had never been fully developed. I cannot know if that is a true statement, but I can say it fits the facts as I experience them. I remain puzzled as to why Firefox would ignore major printing issues to this degree, unless there is just some internal viewpoint that printing is wasteful and rarely really needed. If I want to look at five mutual funds, I want to print out their basics and spread those printouts on the table and look at all five at once. The computer screen has a limited space and does not well allow for that, not in a time-effective way. Printing in moderation is very useful and important. MY QUESTION: Will Firefox ever be made competitive with Edge and Chrome on the printing function?

Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?
