Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

Since my firefox browser updated yesterday with the July 19, 2021 update, some web pages are not displaying properly. For example, I use Yahoo mail, and when I click on an email, most of the content is not showing, including the sender's message. Other frequently used websites are similarly affected.

This same problem occurred after another recent firefox update, and it was eventually fixed when I "checked for updates".

I'm hoping this bug is widespread enough that the Mozilla team will be providing a further update that fixes this.

Meanwhile, if anyone has an idea, I'll listen!

After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

Whenever I open my firefox browser (always up-to-date), certain add-on extensions specifically, IDM and Grammarly fail to load always. In order for them to load, I still need to go to the "manage extensions" then turn on-off in order for them to work. I have tried different solutions that this link provided link text but none of them worked. Can anyone offer a definite solution in my problem?

My OS got updated to Gnome 40.3 after that the configuration got mess up, when checking the about:support page the page was blank so I refreshed Firefox.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

Google Maps doesn't work in FF 90.2 on MacOS (v. 10.15.7)

When I open Google Maps it doesn't show the normal icons for navigation on the map. It doesn't do anything when I have hardware acceleration enabled and I type something in the search bar. If I disable hardware acceleration it does a search, but in no way can I get it to show the place I want to see. It just shows the map of Rotterdam, where Google thinks I live based on my IP address.

It does work in Safari though, so it's a Firefox problem. I hope you can fix it. Google seems to give the FF team lots of problems.

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

I have been using Firefox for a number of years.

I primarily use a Sony Vaio PC using Windows 7.

I got an automatic update of Firefox Version 90.0.2 on 7/22/2021.

It is not working very well. Opening new tabs are hard. Will not close tabs very well, leaving unused space on top. Different sites show up on another sites tab. Worst of all, this new version is a memory hog, with me eventually having to reboot the PC to clear memory until the next time.

Can you please help?

Thanks in advance,

So, first off, Firefox is my favorite browser. I love it a lot. I'm also a pretty big supporter of Free and Open-Source Software.

With that said, I was wondering when and if Firefox will fully support ICC V4 profiles and the PNG specification.

I noticed that ICC V4 is not enabled by default, but even after setting gfx.color_management.enablev4 to true and setting gfx.color_management.mode to 1, ICC V4 is still not working properly.

You can test this yourself here: https://littlecms.com/blog/2020/09/09/browser-check/

Also, I noticed that PNG images of large sizes won't display at all in Firefox, resulting in a broken image icon.

You can test this yourself here: https://www.jwz.org/blog/2018/07/png-antics/

These seem to work at least passably well in other browsers, but I don't want to use other browsers! Does anyone know if Mozilla will fix these sometime? I do know that Little CMS is open-source under the permissive MIT license, so maybe Firefox could use that to fix the ICC V4 problem, if that could help. I don't know if using the latest version of libpng will help the other problem, but I know it is under a rather permissive BSD-style license.

I'm using Firefox 90.0.2 in case anyone is wondering.
