Dear All With the update of FireFox, I cannot longer save media (pictures, videos) from the Firefox Page Info window: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-page-info-window Until the last update, I could right click on a window to open the Page Info window. There I could select "Media" and save pics and videos. With this new update, the small icons are gone and I cannot longer save these items. Any suggestions? Thank you very much beforehand! Best regards. F.

Hi I have tried to download a file which was blocked as susspicious (game trainer). After that I tried to download same file from other mirror but that one was blocked as well. In the end, I have downloaded one of those (download anyway) and cancelled the other. But now I have that file shown every time firefox starts. Deleting that from download history does not help. What / where do I need to delete to get rid of that file? Version 88.0 (64-bit)

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

WidevineCdm plugin is crashing when I try to play videos on Netflix, Hulu, and Peacock. In the browser, Firefox 78.10.0esr on my Mac 10.9. A yellow strip at the top explains that the plugin crashed and asks me to send a report, which I do and asks me to restart the browser, which I do. Nothing works. I tried "safe mode." I tried clearing caches and what not. I think the browser was just updated today. I am totally unable to play videos on those web pages previous mentioned. I am able to watch youtube, however.

My Firefox Dev Edition just updated to 89 b1 today. The screen was blank, the new tab button and no buttons are working. None of the menu items work except the About Firefox which just keeps showing the Restart To Update button. If I click it, it just loads the same blank page again and same issue. I uninstalled and downloaded b2 from the website and still same exact issues. I'm running macOS 11.3 RC which was released today.

Hi,

I've tried multiple times to clear the cache from Preferences by "Clearing Data" but the count still reads that there is cache. I made sure to refresh but that wasn't the issue. I also tried restarting firefox.

Next, I quit firefox, went to ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ since I'm using a mac and I deleted the cache2 folder. I emptied the trash to boot. There were still files in the cache!

Currently, the cache is 535KB. In About:Cache, Disk cache reads 229 KiB and 11 entries. However, I can't see the entries when I click on "List Cache Entries."

This has never happened to me before. Please help me clear the cache!

Only today, I updated to 78.10.0esr. I don't know if that's the issue.

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

Hi i would like to know how i can change the font size of my Firefox Menu.

i already change the size of the layout whit "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" but it didn´t change the font size of the tabs or the menu. i did some research and found the userCrome.css technique to change some fonts sizes. i already change the font size of the address bar, PopMenu and tabs. But when it comes to the Main Menu, and bookmarks the font still in the same size. i also try changing the fonts size on preferences but nothing has been working.

i guess there must be a simple command line to add in the userCrome.css file to fix this but i can find it.

if some of you can help me i will appreciate very much.

i am working on a linux machine. thank you very much

Hey, I cannot, for the life of me, get to a point where I can delete individual bookmarks. I have researched all avenues and fixes here on the forum, and NONE seem to help out. Sync is not on. I have tried removing the places.sqlite, rebooting Firefox, then putting the places file back into the profile.

Verifying integrity gives me this: > Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

But I don't know how to remedy this "error".

I have tried to restore bookmarks, but that just erases ALL bookmarks, leaving the folders in place.

Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks

Hi,

I have decided to ditch Google as much as possible, and come back to Firefox. I always had a tinge of guilt for going over to Google, but that's another story.

The page load times for Chrome are averaging about 1 second. for Firefox they are between 10 and 40 seconds.

OOB does Firefox need any setting changes to make it load pages faster ? I've compared page loads on pages I havent visited before, so no browser cache settings should affect loading times.

Here is some data to back this up.

System : OS Windows 10 Pro - Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043 All latest updates as of 20 April 2021

HW AMD Ryzen 9 3900x CPU X570 Aorus Motherboard 64GB DDR4 3200MHz 3090 Nvidia RTX GPU All PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs

Firefox : 88.0 (64-bit) - About Box says "Up to Date" Chrome : Version 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (64-bit) - latest on stable channel

3 x Arbitrary URLs to load a. https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/alberta-doctors-find-2nd-case-of-blood-clot-linked-to-astrazeneca-vaccine-in-canada-1.5391531 b. https://www.bbc.com/ c. https://www.usa.gov/

Clear Cache before going to web site Choose web sites I had not visited before on this computer

Load times for Chrome in MILLI seconds a 1178(ms) b 1321(ms) c 914(ms)

Same pages loaded in Firefox in SECONDS a 40.65 seconds b 10.38 seconds c 8.33 seconds

Ping and Internet Connection settings Ping 2ms Download 854.16 Mbps Upload 821.35 Mbps

Both browsers have no plugins loaded (except the page time load plugin).

Even if the plugin is telling me the wrong times, I can tell that the times are roughly correct by watching the page load, ie Chrome takes about a second to load most pages, Firefox is taking about 10-40 seconds.

I presume I must have some kind of setting that's wrong somewhere, but this is OOB, so are other people experiencing this kind of latency ?

Thanks

Hello I tried to use Firefox for a meeting with Google Meet. After reaching the front page in Meet, camera is active but I don't see myself. Camera instead is showing very light flashes with various colors.

it's not the OS....i use the latest W10. And of course it's not the camera: if I open the same Meet on Edge or Chrome...in those cases work normally. And of course is not the Firefox out to date....because I checked it is.

Thanks for your help Pier
