Running Firefox 82.0.3 on MacOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) -

If I go to full screen mode with Firefox, and then let my cursor get to close to the top of the window, it activates the dop-down of the menu bar. That's supposed to happen. But the bar is blank (the menu bar items appear above it), and hides tabs. And sliding my cursor away, the bar does not go away. Stuck. And can't resize Facebook to regular view to get rid of it. Need to close it and start over.

Thoughts?

Suddenly, Firefox stopped autofilling urls in my url bar and only offers search terms. Occasionally a url will show up there on autofill but only is triggered from beginning characters of the url rather than something in the middle.

Previously, when searching for something like https://mywebsite/particular-page/ , I could type "particular" in the url window and FF would offer the full url. Now, there is no such behavior and I have to think of the opening url and complete many more characters to get the result that previously was very simple and quick.

I have tried separating the search from the url window but that has no affect on this behavior.

Using this PDF as an example, open it in FF and search for regional development (one space). It finds no hits when I do this.

If I search for regional development (two spaces), it finds one hit.

If I search for regional development (three spaces), it finds one hit.

If I open the PDF in Chrome or in Adobe Reader and search for regional development (one space), it finds two hits, treating the intervening spaces as one space.

I think FF should work like Adobe Reader and Chrome in this regard.

Hello,

When I try to play a 4K Video on YouTube on Firefox 88.0, it's choppy while the same video on YouTube on Microsoft Edge is smooth. From my understanding is doesn't seem to be related to my internet connection (Optic Fiber Orange / 300 Mbps) otherwise it wouldn't be smooth on Microsoft Edge nor to my hardware.

A strange behavior of Firefox is that when I enter the address of the 4K Video, YouTube on Firefox doesn't automaticaly detect the 4K quality. Its auto-detection don't go above HD (1080p or 1440p) I have to manually change the quality and when I choose 4K it's choppy. The red playing bar is always closed to the grey "download" bar. If after selecting manually 4K quality, I select Auto quality again, YouTube on Firefox downgrade the video quality to 1440p. For the same video on YouTube on Microsoft Edge, when I enter the address of the video, auto-detection automatically goes to 4K and everything is ok. (The grey download bar is always far away the red playing bar)

I don't think my hardware is faulty in term of power.

CPU : Ryzen 5900 GPU : RTX 3080 Screen : Dual Screen with 4K Monitor (XV273K and XB271HK) Windows Version : 19042.928 (20H2) Firefox : 88.0 Graphic Drivers : Geforce Game Ready Driver 466.11

Could you help me to fix this, please?

Thanks,

The website I'm currently having the issue with is https://sandbox.eth.build/ , but I've had the issue with other sites too, and it's often debilitating to some extremity

Unless it's something strange that's unique to me, and if you are using the most recent Firefox Desktop version (88.0 (64-bit)) for Windows 10, you should see the issue that I'm having with the subject website:

Currently, the website uses the scrolling input to zoom in and out of the workspace, and would not be needed to scroll up and down the webpage, except for an extremely long, blank, vertical abyss beneath the workspace that has no reason to exist. That in itself is a problem, but it wouldn't be worth it to me to bother with visiting this forum and creating a post about it, if that was to be the only problem. You would only accidentally scroll down instead of out if your cursor was hovering over some part of the page or workspace that would otherwise give a null response to scrollwheel input, so it's not really too frustrating if you can just make a habit of being conscious of where your mouse is while scrolling.

The problem, as I hope you'll be able to see from my uploaded images, is the scrollbar, which overlaps the text from the dropdown menu on the right, in addition to causing half of the text at the bottom to be covered due to pushing the workspace's vertical toolbar further out than it's meant to be.

Hello!

Every so often I accidentally trigger what looks like an input field of some kind.

I have managed to reproduce this ( WinKey + / ) but still have no idea what it is.

Can anyone tell me what this is, or what it's used for? I've attached a couple of image files; one of them is a closeup.

Perhaps it's an add-on that's doing this...

Thanks and have a great day!

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

Hello all. Why has FireFox been degrading lately? What's going on? What happens to the only browser on the planet? Why has the new design lost icons and does not allow you to use the thin strip of the bar? Where did the page view button go and why you should follow it into the general menu under the headline of the window or open it on hot keys? Especially what happens with DoH, where did the set-up network.trr.bootstrapAddress in about:config disappear? I kept hoping that the white lights would be fixed when I started and opened the new tab, but it still remains, do I still have WaterFox to continue using or what? Which by the way for some reason is further optimized under the various instructions of the processor unlike the original, which gives a great performance when using a decent set of extensions with a large blocklist of the ad blocker.
