First time ever. Tested other browsers, sound works fine. Changed no settings when it suddenly went silent. Refreshed. Uninstalled/reinstalled. Nada/nothing. So to not feel as if I've lost my hearing, I won't be using Firefox until there's a fix on their end, already tried everything suggested in troubleshooting and refreshed. It's just not playing well with Win11.

Hello,

I've just downloaded firefox, making the switch from chrome. Doing so I've migrated a couple of tabs and extensions I had. Totally it was 50 tabs, with 6 extensions, I've downgraded now with the switch and it's only 37 tabs and 2 extensions, even so firefox is using more ram than google by a large amount. With 50 tabs open, chrome was using 1.5gigabytes of memory. With the same 37 tabs and extensions, firefox is currently using 6 gigabytes of memory.

The tabs used are from reputable sources, so firefox shouldn't be breaking on these websites. The extensions I am using at the moment on firefox is, Ublock origin, Dark Reader.

As far as reputation goes, firefox should be using less Ram than chrome. Is there a setting I should know about to lower such performance issues? Firefox acceleration is ON.

Thank you for any answers.

The title pretty much sums it up. I even tried drastic measures such as logging out then completely uninstalling Firefox and removing any leftover data on both platforms. After reinstalling and connecting to the Firefox account they will sync with previous data but any new data I add on Windows won't show up on Android and vice versa. I also obviously tried forcing a sync manually... I really wish I didn't have to switch to another password manager any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

I've recently switched back to Firefox from Edge and have run into a frustrating issue.

When I try to print documents from Firefox, the "Color Mode" in the print settings is grayed out so I can't select B&W.

This same problem exists both on my MacOS laptop + my Windows 11 desktop. Additionally, they are connected to different printers on different networks. It also occurs whether I'm trying to print a PDF or anything else in Firefox.

Based on this, it appears Firefox is the culprit here.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Since the last Firefox update, I've noticed an issue whenever I launch the browser. I have it set up so that I have multiple tabs open, and it's set up so that when Firefox starts up, it opens all of the previous tabs and starts me on the tab I was on when I closed the browser previously.

Now whenever I start Firefox, it opens to the last tab I was on, but said tab opens on my current homepage instead of the website that tab was on previously. I experimented by changing my homepage to "Youtube.com", picked a different open tab, closed Firefox and opened it again and sure enough, the tab was now on the Youtube page instead of what it had been previously.

Is this just a bug of the current Firefox version, or is there something in settings I can do to fix this?

Is there any way I can completely disable horizontal scrolling? I'm using a laptop with a trackpoint (lenovo x230, Windows 10) and it's not terribly accurate, which means scrolling whilst a youtube video is going often makes it track backwards or forwards, and another website I use uses a horizontal click to send me to the next page, which sucks. I would prefer to just be able to disable it entirely. Thanks!

I swear to god I used to have it disabled, just need to work out how again.

I recently installed new pc with fresh Firefox Developer Edition. Then I transfered the profile folder from old pc to the new pc. All bookmarks, addons, etc is there. Just the XULRunner popup appears only on the new pc. I uninstalled firefox on the new pc again and reinstalled it with profile cleaning. After profile cleaning firefox got faster and addons got removed. But the XULRunner popup keeps appearing. When I go to taskscheduler and trigger the "Firefox Developer Edition Background Update CA9422711AE1A81C" again, the XULRunner popup appears. Removing this taskscheduler and Firefox keeps readding it and the XULRunner popup are back. Any idea how I can get rid of the XULRunner popup?

Hi,

i have set my home page to blank. Recently i noticed, that when i start firefox and visit a site, my arrow history (i don't know what it's actually called; the linear browsing history you navigate using those arrows) has the blank page as first entry. I don't want that first entry. How can i get rid of it? (And why is it called "chrome://browser/content/blanktab.html"?) When i open a site in a new tab, i don't have that blank page entry in the arrow history. So it seems like it must be possible to get rid of it.

Same problem with private browsing. The first page is always "about:privatebrowsing".

I'm using Firefox version 108.0 on Linux Mint.

It's only a small annoyance, but i really appreciate being less annoyed.

Thanks

Hi,

I have for some time (over a year) been using a remote server as a SOCKS5 proxy for Firefox so I can bypass my local ISPs filtering.

The proxy connection is setup using an SSH tunnel like this:

ssh -D 8080 -q -C -N -f root@<remote server> That sets up port 8080 on my local machine to listen for connections which will be forwarded to ssh on the remote server acts as aSOCKS4/SOCKS5 proxy.

    -D [bind_address:]port
            Specifies a local “dynamic” application-level port forwarding.  This works by allocating a socket
            to listen to port on the local side, optionally bound to the specified bind_address.  Whenever a
            connection is made to this port, the connection is forwarded over the secure channel, and the
            application protocol is then used to determine where to connect to from the remote machine. 
            Currently the SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 protocols are supported, and ssh will act as a SOCKS
            server. 

Tried it today and it doesn't work any more. I've attached a picture of my Firefox Proxy settings and a picture of the Firefox version I am currently running. plus a picture of the error I get when I try to access the BBC website using Firefox via the proxy.

I've tried all combinations of "Proxy DNS when using SOCKS v5" and "Enable DNS over HTTPS" with no effect. I've also tried it from "Troubleshooting Mode" and the same thing happens.

I also tried accessing https://www.bbc.co.uk through the same proxy by using the command:

curl --silent --location --socks5 localhost:8080 https://www.bbc.co.uk

and it worked perfectly.

I'd be grateful if you could have a look at it and let me know what is wrong.

Thanks, Alan

I usually work with between four and twenty tabs open on a page in FireFox. Now what I see above the address bar where they used to be: Firefox Icon < button > button entire top under menu is empty where tabs used to be far right is a + for a new tab and a down button to give me a menu of tabs.

I want to see the tabs, even if they are squished or scrolled when I get a bunch of them.

The drop-down is not a bad addition but it should not replace the horizontal display!

Firefox is suggesting usernames on multiple websites that I access regularly. However, I have the saved logins feature turned off in Firefox.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords - it shows all of these options turned off.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords > Saved Logins... - it indicates No Logins Found / No Synced Logins found.

I do have Firefox Sync turned on to sync between devices, but since it indicates "No Synced Logins" it doesn't appear this is coming from another device. I have checked multiple devices and found they all show "No Synced Logins"

Only happening in Firefox. I am not getting these suggested logins in Edge or Chrome.

Happening across all my Windows 10 and 11 devices that have Firefox sync enabled. 2 x Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (build 22621.819) 1 x Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (build 19045.2364)

Firefox 108.0 on all Windows devices, but it started before updating to 108.

I have not yet tried resetting Firefox - hoping to use that as a last resort.

Any suggestions on where else to look or what I should try?

Just recently Firefox has started to negatively affect my network connection, seemingly only after video playback has happened. Every fix to six pings the time jumps up from the normal range (less than 100ms) to 2-3,000 ms and then returns to normal. This only happens with Firefox and seems to happen mostly when/after video playback has happened but can also happen without video playback. I have started FF without addons as well as in Safe Mode and it still occurs. As soon as I close FF the ping returns to normal and network stability resumes.

All of a sudden, Yahoo email is not signing on Firefox on Windows 11. It is working on other browsers on the same computer, and even on Firefox on the Mac computer that is running the Windows 11. I tried all possible solutions but to no avail.

1) Cleared all cached data and cookies 2) Refreshed FF 3) Completely uninstalled FF and deleted the profile folder and reinstalled a fresh copy 4) Disabled all add-ons and extensions. 5) Private window

I am stuck at " Uh-oh... We can’t sign you in right now. Please try again in a while" every time I try to sign in. I get (https://login.yahoo.com/account/challenge/fail) instead of (https://login.yahoo.com/account/challenge/password).
