Immediately following a Firefox update I began having scrolling problems on my Facebook page. I am able to scroll down normally to a point, and then, all of a sudden, the scroll bar will go up and immediately go back down without me touching the mouse. It will continue doing the up and down scrolling indefinitely and at a high rate of speed. I have tried turning off auto scroll and smooth scrolling at the browser, but no luck. I have Windows 8.1. I have never heard of anyone else having this problem so this seemed like my only option.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Avast Secure Browser imposes itself by opening on start up despite my attempts to stop it doing so. AND despite Firefox being my default browser for over ten years and long before I started using Avast free antivirus. Avast has loaded it on , I never elected to do so ...but that said I do not wish to totally remove it from my lap top as it is, as it were, an insurance policy against Firefox becoming inoperable. I have explored switching off this attribute of avast browser in the browser but to date have been unsuccessful. As a retired man in my seventies I am limited in my peer group for finding anyone that is computer literate YET this technology is so beneficial to people such as myself I believe.

Firefox 102.0 (65 bit) on Ubuntu 20.04, for some reason has begun downloading mp3 files as mpga files (Google Chrome doesn't do this). This forces me to edit the extension as I download, since my mp3 player doesn't recognize the mpga extension. How can I fix this?

I just had a glitch with the latest update to 102b, FF insisted I had an old version and would only let me make a new profile. So I had to set up multi-account containers again. I have specific sites opening up in each container, and I'd like to make a copy to make sure that if my profile gets goofed up somehow, I can always easily restore my setup with multiaccount containers just the way I like it.

What do I need to copy, so that with a new profile, all I need to do is copy over some files?

In my profile folder, I see an Extensions folder, as well as an extensions.json and extensions-settings.json.

Are those the only folders/files I'd need to restore multi-account containers on a new profile?

I have thought of using FF Sync, but I keep reading that it is not intended for copying, so much as sharing across different devices, which is not something I'm interested in. Should I just let sync copy my extensions, and then sign back in, in the event I want to restore addons to a new profile?

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

Firefox 102 beta stopped opening source of web pages in external editor

I have view_source.editor.external set to "true" and view_source.editor.path set to "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

Before version 102, CTRL-U on any web page would open the page's source in the external editor.

In 102, the source is opened in the internal source viewer (in a browser tab).

The console shows:

   this._caUtils.getDefaultExtension is not a function viewSourceUtils.js:413
       getTemporaryFile chrome://global/content/viewSourceUtils.js:413

Hello! Short story: I recently discovered that adding a new GIF image to a page resets the animations of existing GIF images on the page with the same src.

Expected behavior: Adding a new GIF image to the page should not reset the animation of existing images with same src.

Actual result: Adding a new GIF image to the page resets the animation of all existing GIF images on the page with same src.

Code with example: https://codesandbox.io/s/heuristic-platform-jsguir Video demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-ZMrrqq_KI

Simplified version of the code showing unexpected behavior: https://codesandbox.io/s/elastic-shtern-vwrcx1

Does anyone know why this is happening? Is this a bug?

Firefox version: 102.0b7 OS: Win 11

While watching videos(movies/anime) video takes much time to buffer. If video is of 20 minutes then it loads first few minutes then after watch time reaches that buffered video then it takes more time buffer.

What I am looking is for, how can I force firefox to buffer full video at once or is there any way to increase buffer size.

I have been seaching for the solution for the whole day, and i found the closest one. It Does remove tabs, windows buttoms, but the background bar still remains, and i dont need it this way. So thats the code i used to make it >>>>>

  1. main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"]:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar .titlebar-spacer {
       border-inline-end: none;

}

  1. main-window:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar > .toolbar-items {
 opacity: 0;
 pointer-events: none;

} /* This makes the bar shorter vertically but removes the 3 window buttons */

  1. main-window #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse !important;

} /* For full screen mode */

  1. TabsToolbar[inFullscreen]{
 display: none !important; 

}

On the screenshot you can see what remains on tabs' bar place I need my browser to end just above the URL string, so there wont be empty space in the top of the monitor. Can you help me find solution for this problem, please?
