I'm trying to use a manual proxy server for Firefox. When entering the proxy address and port number, Firefox outlines the port number field in red and disables the OK button thus refusing to accept my assigned port number. I'm trying to use port number 29842 which was given to me by the proxy provider.

For some reason I updated to win 11 and now Firefox won't let me login to mercadolibre, it will display the login screen, take my username, send me to the password window, enter my password but won't go anywhere from there. The curious thing is that Edge will log me in without any issue and if I do the same thing with Firefox using a private windows it will let me login but Mercadolibre will always ask me to scan a code with my phone which makes the process longer and tedious.

I cleared all the cookies from my system to no avail.

I am logged into my Mozilla account on four devices: Laptop Linux, Desktop Linux, Desktop Windows, Phone Android. However, when I try “Send tab to device” or list the devices in the account settings, the two Linux devices are not shown separately, so I can’t send a tab from Laptop Linux to Desktop Linux or vice versa. In fact, when I edit the Device name on either of the Linux device, that name will also be shown on the other device.

How is this possible? How can I disentangle the two devices?

How to SWITCH TO TAB when i enter something in address bar and I have this page opened? When I search my question, I get answers like "how to DISABLE...", but I need to ENABLE this feature. Firefox 122. When I type in Address bar something like "google.com" and I already have opened this site in another tab, I want FF to switch this tab instead open a new tab/window. How can I ENABLE this feature?

This is a problem that I have since months, still unresolved. If I try using a different browser (like Brave) it works, so it's a Firefox issue or Apple issue with Firefox.

Basically if I go to https://web.goodnotes.com/login and I login via iCloud, a window opens up which asks me iCloud email and password, then it asks me for the sms code received, then I put it and then I get a BLANK page (the image that I uploaded) with in up right corner "Login performed as my name". And then nothing happens. But instead with Brave it opens up the Apple authorization to accept the Browser and then I finally can enter in Goodnotes web. With Firefox I'm stuck in that blank white page.

Since it's an issue that I have since months, I think I should report this and here I am.

Hi. I am running a 3 monitor setup and I like to keep open quite a few tabs. And two windows of Firefox. So two Firefox instances with several tabs on each. But because it eats a lot of memory, I have to close and reopen Firefox from time to time. And to my annoyance, sometimes it "forgets" about one of the windows. So opens only one instead of both. Therefore I loose some quite important tabs. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you.

Every time I open Firefox after closing it, I get the message below. I can click the button to restore session and it works every time. With each update, I hope to never see this message again, but after installing a new version on Ubuntu today, I see the same familiar message. This is not linked to a computer, or an operating system because I've seen this on both Ubuntu and Mac. If Firefox could literally just click the button that would be awesome.

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

After updating to Beta 122.0b3 (64-bit), the active tab is now highlighted with a simple white outline instead of the coloring surrounding the address bar. My selected theme has not changed, and the same goes for all of my extensions. I could not find this change in the 122.0b Release Notes.

If this behavior is intentional, is there any option to return to the previous behavior (including in about:config)?

For some reason, Firefox just stopped working yesterday. The only way I could get it to work again was to uninstall and reinstall (the refresh option did not work). However, now I've lost all my bookmarks, passwords and customization. I don't care about the customization and losing the bookmarks is an annoyance, but I'd REALLY like to get my passwords back. The installation created a folder of Old Firefox data, but when I open the folders that I think might be helpful, like bookmarkbackups, they are empty. Is there anywhere else I can look where these might have been saved? I did not have a Mozilla account so no profile until now which I just set up in order to access the forum. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Firefox is my default browser, but it does not allow me to log in to specific websites. For example, ihg.com, when I click the sign in button nothing happens, I just have a little note at the bottom left "javascript:void(0);" Another example, dutchcrafters.com , when I click Log in with Gmail, nothing happens.

I have tried removing all the content blocking extensions (privacy badgers, ublock origin, etc.), did not fix it. I have tried a firefox refresh, did not fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with several device restarts, did not fix it.

I know this must be a firefox specific problem because microsoft edge work perfectly for both of these examples. Any other suggestions to fix this firefox issue?

Good evening,

I have a new laptop, from the same brand and make as my old one, both are HP pavilion with the same configuration and only 2 years in between! I have been trying on and off for weeks, to synchronise my FF browser, with all open tabs, history and bookmarks, but all to no avail. I do everything the sync instruction tells me to do, but nothing happens. I am getting desparate, because my old laptop has a problem (hardware, nothing that could prevent synchronising) and is still under warranty, but time is running out!

Will anybody help here, and how do I receive answers?

It worked nicely for many years, until today. I installed Supraland from Steam, played for a couple of hours, and suddenly my Youtube page went glitchy - not the layout but minor elements were getting scrambled, especially text. I'll attach a couple of pictures to show it. In fact, all pages glitch if their content changes even a little. As of typing now, I see the glitches, with a word or another getting butchered. Gifs and videos are full of that.

Windows 10, the current update, Radeon RX 580, the recommended AMD drivers installed (and reinstalled again and again, 23.11.1)

I think I did pretty much everything with Firefox. Disabling hardware acceleration fixes it (but then of course the browser goes slow). Games work fine, including Talos Principle 2 which is intense enough. The clean install, reinstall and all that. I'm writing from the beta stable build now. I've tried to regress to the previous versions too.

It strictly coincides with the game installation but I have no close backups - who knew that some game might just do that. Then, of course, I tried to uninstall it too.

Thoughts?
