Firefox doesn't work with power management. It essentially turns the screen off and then sends the laptop to sleep when watching videos (in full screen). I have tried to disable hardware acceleration, but it didn't fix my problem. I am on 124.0.1 version - flatpack version on fedora, as the actual fedora version from "discover" app center cannot play videos at all. I am running on fedora 39, kde plasma, wayland.

Not all animations appearing on Instagram via Firefox on older hardware.

Hi. I have two main Mac computers that I browse the web with, a 2020 iMac 27 with 6-core Intel i5 and Radeon Pro 5300 GPU. My secondary computer is an older mid-2012 MacBook Pro with dual core Intel i5 and HD Graphics 4000.

I am aware this Macbook is over a decade old now, and I plan on getting a much newer model within the next couple months. For now, I'll have to make do with this when my iMac is busy with other tasks (mostly rendering video). I have installed all the latest Mac OS updates the Macbook can support, which is Catalina, and Firefox is also the most current version 124.0.1 64-bit.

I tend to use Instagram via Firefox for the most part, and on the iMac, there are these little animations when doing things like double-clicking posts to like them, which causes a small flying heart to appear on the post for about a second. Flipping through multi-image posts is also animated when clicking the left and right buttons, resulting in a slide animation between photos. Small text pop ups also have animation as well.

However, using Firefox on my Macbook, those animations don't appear. I've enabled hardware acceleration, and the animations still don't appear. I've also whitelisted Instagram in uBlock Origin, and the result is the same.

I tested other websites that I can compare with the iMac, like Google Maps and the official Nintendo Animal Crossing website. Both sites run smoothly on my Macbook, with all animations functioning like they should, and Google Street view also being smooth with no visual glitches or other reduced functionality.

I will note the screen resolution on the Macbook is 1366 x 768 compared to the large iMac. My question is this... is Instagram disabling these UI animations on my Macbook due to it's age and/or screen size, is Firefox doing that, or is this a bug in regards to Mac OS Catalina?

These are very simple animations, so it's strange that they don't appear on my Macbook, despite it still being capable of showing web page animations with other sites. The Like animation in particular is helpful as it provides visual feedback to my preferred way of liking posts there.

I had to delete Firefox on my iPhone because links in emails wouldn't open anymore. Yes, it was set for default.

When I re-installed it, the tabs don't close. I hit the X to make a webpage go away and open a new tab. Hit that X when I'm through. Then close an empty Firefox on my phone.

When I reopen Firefox, I get all these little miniature webpages of the tabs I closed. I don't want them. I closed them because I was through. This is wasting my time making me close them again and again ...

Please tell me how to set Firefox on my iPhone so that when I open it I get my homepage with shortcuts I have chosen and nothing else.

Thank you, Roxanne

New computer, new install, when trying to log in to my account to set up sync/migrate, Firefox claims the password is incorrect ... the same password I just used on this (old) computer to log in and ask this question!

I've had issues with this before, when I synced up my phone. Took several attempts to log it in.

Also, tried changing password, but for some reason it won't accept a new one? (That's different issue. Would prefer to log in with current password. at least)

Thanks!

Can these be pulled from anywhere else?

Dear Community,

After I tried to fix a slow browser in troubleshoot mode and reseted firefox, I get each time i start Firefox a success page with the option of restoring tabs.

I don't want that, I want my own startpage when i start Firefox, but i tried to get rid of it whiteout success. I enclosed a screenshot of the page i see everytime now.

I hope there is a solution for it to get my startpage back.

Thank you in advance,

Robert

I have been using Windows 10 with Firefox browser and Google/Gmail for many months. I also have been using Norton 360 and other Norton programs for many years. A few days ago, I updated Norton Utilities Ultimate and after update ran it for standard options. Before that update, I could start Google and still be signed in and start Gmail and still be signed in. Now, whenever I close Gmail or Google, I have to sign in whenever I start Google/Gmail. I tried to get help from Norton (see attached chat printout), but they said it was not a Norton problem and to contact Google. When I researched the problem with Google, it indicated that the problem was related to cookies but did not help correct it. I tried Firefox Help and could not find any useful information. I then changed to Google Chrome browser; that works and I can start and stop Google and Gmail and remain signed in. If I go back to Firefox, I still have to sign in every time I start Google. Appears to me to be Firefox or Firefox setting problem. Help!! Gordon gordonandpatti@gmail.com

duplicate of /questions/1443841 thread.

I cannot get firefox to update. It is set up for automatic updates but they don't happen. Even if I try manual installation of updates it says the update fails. I ran it in troubleshooting mode and the problem still exists. I restarted my computer and the problem still exists. I am using a mac running on Monterey. How can I get it to auto update again? (and even though it says failed to check for or install updates, it looks like I do have the latest version of firefox)
