OK, I am very angry ....

FF asks me to update, when i launch the browser, and it continues doing so when browsing. I HATE THIS BEHAVIOUR and I know how to use a computer.

     I do not need to be mollycoddled by some 2bit computer company that has no idea what Professional computer users need. 
         Bare in mind I am in the mood to migrate away from FF completely without a tick button answer. 
         I am also in the mood to take drastic action if this is not resolved. IT SHOULD BE IN THE SOFTWARE IF I SELECT IT.

I want to use FF without an automatic update, which the software DOES NOT ALLOW (removed threat as per [rules and guidelines here).

I am running FF 107.01 (i don't care if its out of date).

Previous .json answer did not work. neither did going into settings.

only a complete ban on updates will suffice. (i will update myself as i feel like it.) I will not tolerate another answer.

FIX IT NOW!!!!

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

I am, for the last two to three weeks sufferering limited access to my Barclays online banking if I use Firefox. My bank eventually told me to use an alternate, more popular browser to access it, which I was loathe to do but it worked first time! This is not the first time Firefox has had these issues either. What are you doing about it?

Dropbox has a feature for creating and saving GoogleDocs within Dropbox folders. This feature can be accessed via the Dropbox website interface (e.g. "Create->Document->Google Docs". This works well when using Chrome and Safari browsers, but I cannot get it to work with Firefox. When I create or try to edit an existing GoogleDoc via the Dropbox website, I am prompted to sign into my Google account, however clicking "Sign in" only refreshes the page, so the Google Doc cannot be loaded.

I have tried the following fixes: - Turned off "Enhanced tracking protection" for dropbox.com (via the shield icon to the left of the address bar). - Allow all cookies and trackers (Firefox preferences -> Enhanced tracking protection -> unchecked cookies and tracking). - Allowed cookies and site data from dropbox.com and google.com (Firefox preferences -> Cookies and Site Data -> Manage Exceptions).

Advice would be welcome, thank you!

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

Just the last month or so, when I preview an attachment then download it, I find that my Yahoo email session has been closed.

A recent Firefox update made it easy for me to re-open the mail session but it never returns to the email I had open at the time.

Is this a Yahoo issue or a Firefox issue? And more importantly, how do I stop it happening?

I notice similar questions last year had no response

I run Fedora 37 with KDE Plasma desktop on my Asus laptop. I have been doing so for a few years now on various computers I have owned. I have never had a problem.

About a month ago, I noticed that playing a youtube video in Firefox made my mouse pointer disappear. It is not limited to the page.tab, but all of Firefox, menus, tabs and window controls. When I move my mouse outside of Firefox, the pointer becomes visible. Move it back, and it disappears again.

The mouse functionality still exists inside Firefox, i.e. the on hover highlights all work as does clicking, but the pointer stays invisible.

If I switch from Wayland to X11, this does not happen.

Please put Wayland support back again or tell me how I might fix this. Thanks

I lost my logins out of nowhere, good thing is that autofill keeps working so I can still log in. I don't really get why it happened, but I would like to recover them. I still have all of my bookmarks and history, etc. When I looked out in the profile folder, I found out that the logins.json file actually has all of my logins (halg of them doesn't have the password, but I guess it's because it's encrypted or something), so I don't really get why they aren't displayed when I open view passwords and logins.

How can avois signing-in to pocket when I am already using Firefox browser? How can I stop pocket putting hundreds of articles in my Pocket that I do not want?

I looked for info on "how to save a window". Googling got me to : https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/941808

a. That article is out of date. And, like so many, IT DOES NOT STATE TO WHAT VERSIONS OF FIREFOX IT APPLIES. That is nuissance, considering how often Firefox changes.

b. That article also states to right click and tab and use "Bookmark All Tabs". There is no such right click option. (ff v107.1)

Useless, out-of-date articles should not be archived when they become obsolete. Or, they should be archived with an indication that they no longer apply.

c. How do I save a window?

Not as much of an issue with Google Chrome.

Often stuck for ages entering Captcha nonsense in Forefox.
