When I select "bookmark this tab", in the Firefox browser, I used to get the window allowing you to choose where to put the new bookmark. This 'bookmark location' window no longer appears so you don't know where the bookmark has gone. Prior to now, this feature has always worked fine.

I quit Firebox and reopened it but the problem remains.

I'm using Firefox 119.0.1 (64 bit) (the most current vers.) on a Macbook Pro running Ventura 13.3. I switched from Chrome to Firefox on this new Mac.

Please help!

Thanks very much.

In the last 2 weeks (that I know of), Mercari will not appear when I go to it. I just get a blank page. I've restarted the computer, I've turned off the Ublock and Ghostery but nothing. Everything else works fine. I am not very computer adept, by the way. I sell things on Mercari, so I kind of need to access it. I'm not even sure I picked the right topic (website breakages)....sorry if I got it wrong.

I'm essentially new to the subject of containers. Forgive the awkward title, but I couldn't figure out how to concisely express what I'm curious about.

For example, hypothetically you have a 3000+ tab session, which on occasion may max out your cpu/memory with unpleasant/inconvenient consequences.

I was watching a Youtube video on the subject, mentioning that, in some ways, containers can be compared to kinda like having multiple, isolated profiles.

Is that how it works? Can I separate 3000+ tabs into 6 containers of 500 each, and expect each one of them to behave independently of the others, like 6 separate profiles, at least from a memory management perspective?

I am using MacOS Monterey 12.7.1 with the latest Firefox version. When in full screen mode, if I want to refresh the screen I move the mouse pointer to the top of the page to get the tools to display but when I move it down the the refresh button, it quickly hides again before I can refresh the page. Does anyone know of a solution to this or a keyboard shortcut I can use to do a page refresh while in full screen mode?

Hello,

For the past couple of months I have been experiences tab crashes every day when watching a specific streaming service called wowtv, all my other tabs are fine and work flawlessly. Additionally, after restoring the tab or opening it anew it works again for the next few hours until the next crash occurs. Netflix, disney+ and others work fine as well. So far I have tried reinstalling firefox as well as try other browsers where said issue doesn't occur. I sadly don't have the error message or anything but the video freezes just before crashing, neither closing all tabs 'nor trying an older firefox version fixed it for me.

With regards,

Marcinathi

I downloaded and installed Atkinson Hyperlegible and set Firefox to use it as my default font for all websites (see screenshot). This used to work, but now fonts on sites are shown in a default serif or sans-serif font, not the font I set. It stopped working maybe a month ago (October 2023).

What can I try to fix this?

When I watch videos on Youtube, suddenly it says I can only watch them in 360p or 720p quality, when previously I had access to 4K and 8K video at maximum and 1080p average. Youtube says "YouTube videos are available in many formats and qualities. But, some browsers do not support newer video formats or quality options. This restriction means these browsers may only have one or two video formats to choose from. We recommend upgrading your browser or operating system for the best viewing experience." This has only happened now and it only happens with Firefox, as when watching videos with Safari 1080p video is available. I am using the latest version of Firefox on a Mac mini with the latest Mac OS installed.

I decided to migrate from chrome to firefox, sadly, my experience has been faced with random slow downs or partial loads even on a fresh install. It's weird but it seems that at random times some websites will refuse to fully load or even start loading, it appears that the app is just hanging. This is usually fixed after several refreshes. Oddly enough, even on a fresh install, if I attempt to load up the same website while in private browsing, it loads right away, again this is consistent even on a fresh install, the attached image was an attempt to load youtube after signing in on a fresh install without add-ons, I tried loading up youtube in private and it worked right away. Chrome wasn't presenting this problem on my computer for years. Any ideas? My computer specs are high enough where they shouldn't matter. I'm running an AMD GPU (7900 XTX) but I haven't found any know issues regarding these, to even discard that, I disabled hardware acceleration, but the issue persisted. Running up to date windows 10, installing latest version of firefox.

Hello,

I have tried many times to import my passwords from Chrome and from my desktop Firefox, using synchronising, to this laptop, and it has continually failed to happen. My Tabs and Bookmarks, for example, have all been successfully imported.

I want to make Firefox my default browser but cannot do this without successfully importing my passwords.

Please let me know what I should do next.

Are you able to take control of my laptop remotely and resolve the problem? If so, please let me know the times and days when you can do this, so that I can make an appointment, stating which time zone you are in as I am in England.

Many thanks, Michael
