Webpages with divs and buttons that hover a consistent space of the screen like taskbars and Reddit's "back to top" button flicker white and jitter around when I try to scroll and I would like to find a quick fix if possible. I am a new user and I've only so far had to touch config settings to fix on hover UI with Twitter. Everything else is default settings and I keep getting forwarded to old bug reports and github pages for web developers when I'm trying to fix it from the user side on multiple common pages like Tumblr and StackOverflow.

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

Whenever i restart Firefox, my download history gets deleted, but the downloaded files in the file manager don't. I have tried creating new profiles and altering my settings, nothing really works, its the same for all the files, and for all the new profiles i create too. Is there a permanent solution?

Hello,

I'm currently trying to log-in on Postman application. This aplication when log-in button is pressed a tab on firefox is open with the postman site log-in. The trouble comes when trying to re-open the tab on another container. It breaks the log-in. To resolve this I would be interesting to some way to choose an specific or default container for new or incoming tabs.

Before the new update of Firefox the drop-down menu would color itself a red color, if one of the options were already chosen. For example, if a webside had selectable options of answers in a drop down menu, and answer A already was selected, it's fillcolor/highlight would be red - ensuring the same options wouldn't be chosen multiple times.

How do I get this "feature" back?

Firefox for Windows hangs when I copy text, either by Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C or by using a right-click menu. The browser just stops responding. It doesn't crash. Eventually, it will return and behave normally.

I tried removing all extensions and closing all open tabs. No change. I'm out of ideas. I suspect it may be trying to synchronize with something it can't find or there's network latency. Task Manager shows it's using a lot of resources. It doesn't do it every time, just often enough to be frustrating.

When I print a document from Firefox which has a logo, the logo becomes very enlarged so that only a fraction of it actually gets printed. This is a fairly new phenomenon since some recent update.

I mark student scripts, doc, docx and pdf, many of which are downloaded in a 2-3 day marking session. So opening the files needs to be easy and slick. But it doesn't work well any more - even worse than previously. How can I get Firefox to download and open the file automatically when clicking on the link? "They" seem to be putting barriers in the way of efficient working.

My work computer is behind a firewall that is a forward and reverse proxy. Firefox crashes fairly frequently but my work computer is not using and will not be using the forward proxy; that is for the web server. Therefore the crash reports so not get submitted. There is an error message: "There was a problem submitting your report." Is there another way to submit them?

checking box within a Tab on yahoo mail will immediately open that entry and then freeze further operation until the screen is shut down. This happens on my wife's HP lap top i5 Pavilion 4.00 ram. ie: inbox tab will show a number of email - a dozen or so - followed by grey empty areas. The tab indicates 100+ total in inbox. Selecting one box opens the email but locks up any activity on that email & must be shut down to exit. The identical situation happens when I access my email on her machine. She is using Firefox 105.0.1 HOWEVER, on my machine, HP desktop AMD A8 8.00 Ram, both email addresses do not lock up, multiple boxes can be checked and work as expected. My desk top uses Firefox 104.4 This began happening within the past couple of weeks and I can not debug the situation. Any pointers ??
