I've been trying for some time to determine why my main Firefox profile, the profile I use most of the time, has a lot of trouble when I use Google Street View. The Street View screen essentially freezes when I try and use it. But, taking a tip from Firefox help I opened up a new profile in a new browser. When doing so, the existing Google Street View problem disappeared completely in the new browser. I call my new profile in the new browser my second Firefox browser to use. My question is, can someone explain why the problem disappears in my second Firefox browser? Looking at the options window when I open the Firefox menu, I see a few differences between the two browsers. The big difference is the second browser has much less applications in it. It has 7 applications where as my first browser has 21 applications. Is this the possible reason why the second browser doesn't have the problem that my first browser does? If so, how can I delete some of the applications in the first browser to see if that is the problem? I'm trying NOT to refresh my first Firefox browser as refreshing Firefox caused much problems for me in the past. And, it seems some Firefox aficionado's do say use caution when using a refresh. So, can someone please explain why the one browser, the new second browser, is void of the problem that plaques my first or original Firefox browser? Thank you. Post a Reply

I realize Firefox is free, so I should not complain, but why oh why has Mozilla changed the Firefox print interface in Version 86? Print Preview has gone. The controls are on the wrong side. It now resembles Google Chrome, which is just horrendous! Half the options are hidden so it takes twice as long to do what one wants to do. The interface is much more clumsy. I could go on. How do I reverse this? I cannot work with it! I uninstalled v86 and installed v85, and the horrendous print layout is still there!! Thanks in advance

And why is Firefox feebback page no longer working?

Everything was fine till today. Smarkets website looks like crap and only this one. What's interesting, it looks all right when I untick allow pages to use their own fonts button. That's strange. Unfortunately, the rest of website do not look good. I cannot use Smarkets anymore as this is just unreadable. Please compare the same website open i FF and Chrome.

I am trying to use the dictation feature on word (onedrive.live.com document). Firefox does not list the microphone, the webpage says I need to click on the locked icon (next to the URL). The microphone is not listed, in addition there is not a way to whitelist sites in the privacy settings.

There is no way to get the microphone working for the dictation feature in word on microsoft office online.

When I go to a web page which is a PDF, the web page used to load as a PDF. Now there are 2 tabs, one is blank and has an address which refers to the PDF location, and the other is a PDF saved to the Temp folder (eg. file:///C:/Users/USER/AppData/Local/Temp/some_PDF.pdf)

My preference is: www.some_website/some_PDF.pdf

This is because I save the tabs, and the next time I use Firefox, the temporary PDF is not loaded anymore. As well, I prefer 1 tab instead of 2.

Where is the setting to adjust?

Hello,

Just updated after a long time from 66.0.5 -> 72.0.2 -> 86.0. This is what FF wanted to do for some unexplained reason so I just let it.

Now when I open a new tab in an open window I get a white screen and nothing works. Entering a URL in the bar or pressing any of the buttons like home does nothing whatsoever. Just a blank white screen.

This is why I LOATHE updating anything! The odds of breaking something that was working perfectly is VERY high. Proved the point once again. I used to let FF update itself and then got burned by the Quantum update that trashed ALL of my open session windows. Turned auto-update OFF after that so that could manually grab and save a copy of the profile BEFORE any update happens.

So how do I fix this or is it a legitimate BUG that should be reported (and how to do same)?

Thanks, Steve

I have noticed in my options section that I can specifically pick what I want. But, looking at it from a computer performance point of view (computer speed) which settings are best? In the browsing category what should I select? There are more than a few options there. Which ones do I need for good computer performance? And which ones should be not used? In the applications category what selections should I pick? There are currently many-many selections there. Are all of them needed or required? Would it be advantages to remove some? Hopefully someone can help? Thank you.
