When on msn.com, newsfeeds often go blank and a message at the top of the page reads, "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page," and there's a "stop" button. I've been having this frequently the last few days and had never had it before. How do I make it go away? Thanks.

On repeated occasions, I have been offered multiple usernames in logging onto a website, specifically some choices that are all numeric usernames in addition to the correct one. When I then attempt to edit my Firefox PW list, there is no such username listed. I'll grant that I'm not always disciplined when offered "Save this PW and username?" at time of logins, but even if an inadvertent save, they should be there when I access the list.

Good afternoon

Frequently I use this page: https://www.flashscore.com/ in Mozilla Firefox browser.

Earlier when I clicked on the page in this service for example: https://www.flashscore.com/match/CrSqmqeL/#match-summary, it displayed a small size window in browser, because in this way it should be displayed.

Now when I click on the above page, Mozilla displays a normal, large size of the page, what is irritating.

How to fix it ?

Thank You very much in advance.

On the printing subpage, the are four choices for the pages to print: All, Odd, Even, Custom. It always initially comes up with All selected. Is there a way to configure things so that the default instead is Custom? If not, could this feature be added to FF?

I noticed just in the last few days that Google Calendar is not displaying certain items correctly anymore.

I have tested this in Troubleshoot mode and the issue exists there as well, so I know it isn't one of my addons causing it. I have not changed any settings recently either.

Can someone please advise me on this issue?

I live in senior community. I have been using Firefox for several years. Recently I have been unable to access the "portal" I use to pay my rent, ask for maintenance etc. I got a new password from the office yesterday and was still unable to access the company website to Pay my rent. It was suggested I change my "password" and I did. To no positive result. I had to use "chrome" to pay it. Am I going to have to do this everytime I have to do anything on this "resident portal". The company name is Overture Virginia Beach but was bought by Westminster Canterbury. I find the timing somewhat noteworthy.

Many thanks... Linda Summers

I must renew my Passport and it costs $120 and in the past I have done it with my Visa Card. But now for some reason it doesn't work any more. The US Government seems to think that the problem is with Visa! The problem is when I try to write the number of the Vise Card in the box that is provided, it only accepts 13 of the numbers that I type in, and not all 16. They suggest that the problem is with my Browser, and not with their s/w. Does Mozilla give problems when people like me, who want to send money from Germany to the US Government in America?

I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.

This was the original thread <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363425#answer-1471931>

In short, to summarize the original issue, one day after clearing my 'recent history' 100% once, gmail.com never ever became autofilled again. I can't get it to show up, no matter what.

I even refreshed firefox, still didn't help, sadly. The only thing left is to uninstall FF but that's a headache I don't want to do. and there's no guarantee that it would work.

Tried disabling all my extensions except for the most obviously fine ones like momentum. Didn't seem to help. <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176553> This guy had the EXACT same problem I had. So I followed through these suggestions. Didn't help.

1. Does anyone know what the right keywords for this would be if I want to google others who have similar issues? Looks like I can only just hope other people have the solution. But I've googled things like firefox not suggesting history in omnibox search. Hasn't come up with anything that worked yet.

Hello, First let me thank Mozilla again for a great experience. I've been using Firefox as my main browser for many years and since some time I also started supporting Mozilla financially with whatever little I can with recurring payments. To the problem: since some time patch / commit view on HitHub with Firefox is broken. I guess many @mozilla have github accounts so you can open and read https://support.github.com/ticket/1318472 but to summarise: my first entry there was: ``` When viewing Linux kernel style Pull Requests on GitHub, using Firefox, TABs are displayed as 4 spaces, which is confusing, since the default is 8 spaces, which is also what is displayed in chrome and chromium. E.g. https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/pull/4747/commits/e9cc9312841a9329797b0b676335c8cb1a0dc779 ``` then a screenshot (attached) and a clarification to it: ``` As you can see there the patch area between lines 238 and 245 is wrongly indented by 4 spaces, whereas areas above and below are correctly indented by 8 spaces. ``` Then more: ``` No, space isn't used for indentation in that code. They can download raw code and verify, I'm sure they know how to do that. Why don't they just reproduce that themselves? Start Firefox, navigate to any PR commit like https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/pull/4884/commits/b19a64df2c2fcd63d7407ef500fd3312287c8995 and click arrows above and below the diff to display surrounding code. Then navigate to or download the raw patch https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/commit/b19a64df2c2fcd63d7407ef500fd3312287c8995.patch to see TABs used everywhere. Should be very easy to verify. ``` and their last reply was ``` From a technical standpoint this is not a regression. It's a problem with the way firefox interprets the combination of the tab-size css and the particular markdown we use for our diffs.

After reviewing the Issue in more detail there it has not been prioritized and will most likely not be addressed in the near future. ``` This is a deal-breaker for me. I spend hours daily reviewing GitHub pull requests. And I'd really not want to use a different browser just because of this... Please help! Thanks Guennadi

Thankfully after a few minutes spent on a google search, I figured out how to put it back.

It disappeared entirely on its own.
