Hello! My name is Anya. I am desperately trying to manage my social media addiction and to help support that I am wondering if its possible to disable the privacy window. I know I can install a website blocker - which I have, but it does not apply to the private window so I have full access to social media on it, I just have to log in. I want to COMPLETELY block Facebook and Instagram off of my laptop. Is this possible? Thank you!

I have installed the German language extension. I can go to a site written in German and it translates fine. THE SECOND I USE ANY SUB MENU WITHIN THE SITE, IT DOES NOT TRANSLATE. Right clicking and choosing "Translate" does not work since "translate" does not exist on the tab.

The Firefox translate feature only works on the initial screen!

I can find no setting to fix this

Firefox 126.0 on Sonoma 14.5 not saving passwords

After up grading to a Mac Studio running Os 14.5, I downloaded the latest Firefox 126.0. I have three other computers with Firefox. The oldest a Mac Pro running 10.13.6 Hi Sierra that works flawlessly. I tried sync and bookmarks came over to the Mac Studio but not any passwords. I tried importing via a .csv file and got the message: Import complete New passwords added: 0 Existing entries updated: 0 Duplicate entries found: 0 Errors 190 (not imported)

Firefox will NOT even save manually entered passwords. I suspect some problem with Sonoma's paranoid security but I cannot find a solution. Any suggestions?

Perhaps I am the only one experiencing this issue but it is causing such an issue for me that I am afraid I will need to abandon this browser. I never in my life thought an internet browser displaying the forums for the browser would require so many processes.

Am I the only one? I have a pretty basic experience going on here but this is causing such a struggle I might need to find a new browser. I just don't understand how this even gets to be this way.

I am very grateful for a couple of advantages this browser occasionally showcases and I really don't want to migrate to another browser across my devices. All of the options I have read in this forum are pretty much disabled by the updates to Firefox but I am willing to try just about anything within reason that won't be quickly screwed up by another update.

My apologies if I sound frustrated, but come on that's a lot of processes to show your support page and it's eating up so many resources that could be used to trouble shoot my projects in a timely manner. This impacts performance to the point that I can't watch a tutorial with nothing else going on while working with GDevelop.

Hello, I have a problem: After an automatic update of the language packs, parts of the Firefox menu (version 126.0) are displayed in EN. Parts in DE. Seems to be related to the update... how can I change this again? I have already changed the language settings. Didn't help...it appeared after an automatic update on May 28. Thanks for an idea :)

I have just upgraded the OS on Mac Mini with the M1 chip to Sonoma (14.5) I am running Firefox 126.0.

Now it seems that I have more than one problem since the upgrade. The browsing history in my sidebar is not current. It is running about a day behind.

I reported earlier that the type on my LinkedIn is only out 7 pt when my settings have the minimum size at 14 pt.

Somebody please help. I'm afraid to do a refresh because I don't know what it will do to my banking settings.

Browser Geolocation Shows Old Location

When using some websites that ask for browser permission to use your location, the location is wrong.

I recently moved more than 2000 miles, and when I use Google Maps in Firefox on my Windows laptop, its "current location" (as in, the blue dot that appears once I give Google Maps permission to use my location) is always at my old address rather than my new one.

After some digging, I discovered https://mylocation.org/, which was very helpful in that it informed me of two different types of location lookup. One of them, based on my IP address, works like a charm and shows me at my new address. The other, called "Browser Geolocation", shows my old address. And I've confirmed that this information varies from browser to browser: Firefox is wrong, Chrome is correct, Edge is correct, Brave is wrong.

This must mean that the browser stores some kind of information somehow about my location, right? How do I update this so that it matches the public IP address location?

YouTube videos at 4k lagging/buffering using vp09 codec

Example video I have issues with: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udXuzXhb9WY)

I can't watch youtube videos smoothly using the vp09 codec at 4k/1440p [Codec: vp09.00.51.08.01.01.01.01.00 (313) / opus (251)]. Constant buffering, lag, pausing of the video or just not playing at all keeps occurring with the video I put above for example, and other videos using the same codec.

My internet connection is very quick in fact, with getting ~90mbps upload/download. My computer specs are good, having an i7 12700kf and an rtx 3060 with 64gb of ram. All my drivers are on the latest version. The video I linked above plays for about 10 sec before not loading more of the video and just infinitely loading (The main issue that is causing this to happen is that when I open stats for nerds, the buffer health isn't being updated).

I tried various solutions online that I found on forums, such as forcing av1 encoding, which fixes the issue, however on that specific video I linked, keeps the quality at 1080p, which probably is a issue on youtubes part and the file format of the video. I tried many other fixes.

On microsoft edge, the video plays fine with no playback stutters or anything. I don't have any 3rd party extensions installed that may affect the video playback. I did a lot of things to eliminate as many variables as possible, but the issue persists. I did a full reinstall of the browser, reseting cookies and temp data and also trying the nightly version of firefox, but non of those fixes worked. Basically everything I thought of I did.

Like I mentioned before, this issue is NOT only for the youtube video I linked, but its for all videos using just the vp09 codec for the 4k/1080p quality. The only fix I did find for that video is actually while writing this, I left the tab open for the youtube video for a while then played it and it played smoothly with no interruptions and the buffer health was constantly being updated, but after refreshing the page, it was the same.

From what I can remember this issue hasn't been happening for the lifespan of my pc (less than 6 months), and I cannot remember when the issue started happening. It seems to be pretty recent (maybe 2-3 months if I were to guess). At first I started tolerating it and thought it was a small bug since it only happened on videos I played at 4k using the vp09 encoder, but now its really frustrating and makes it possible to watch most 4K content. Some videos I notice when it starts buffering, it resorts to an alternate av1 codec for 4k video, but its only for certain videos. Unfortunately I cannot back track and see what started this issue.

Here is some additional info:

   Windows 11
   NVIDIA Game ready driver version (555.85)
   No abnormal resource usage (Gpu, Cpu ram etc.)
