Hi,

When I load google photos, Firefox is able to display the first few rows of photos fine, but as I scroll, the remaining images don't load. I've tried all the usual things, like disabling protection, restarting in safe mode and even clearing cookies.

Is there any way to fix this?

When Instagram plays a video and I move to another tab (other than wherein instagram.com is open) then suddenly the Instagram video stops playing completely.

How on earth is this possible in "privacy first" Firefox? When did I gave permission for a video to stop playing just by clicking another tab?

I want a standard HTML5 video to continue to play in any of the tabs that are open regardless of which tab I am clicking-on in the middle of play. Once upon a time that was the case. I want to go back to that state please.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

I have tried everything that I can find to get rid of that damn searchitnow, which replaced my preferred Google Search. I've looked for downloads, extensions, everything. I've checked to make sure Google is my preferred search engine, and on and on. There is nothing. I have run Malwarebytes several times and it comes up clean.

How do I get this off my Mac? I am running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

Hello together,

when implementing canvas graphics with 2D context, I notified that the latest FF 87.0 on windows is much slower than chrome/edge/opera on windows and also much slower as safari on mac. I drilled into detail and detected that it was caused when drawing polygons with color gradient (see attached image). Means that using canvascontext.createLinearGradient() instead of flat colors makes it slow. On the other hand using flat colors is perfectly fast.

I wondered, because I had much better experience with FF and installed an earlier version (78.9.0esr) on the same windows workstation and the problem was gone. Seams, that some change made the newer FF slower with this type of graphic..

CPU is i7 8650U 1.90 - 2.11 GHZ, OS is Windows 10 version 20H2

But the effect is the same on all windows workstations I tested. Would be happy to see, that I can use FF again with these type of graphic apps.

When I type in ANY URL, I want exactly that to be loaded. And not anything else.

When I type in mozilla.rog into the address bar, I want firefox to fetch the page mozilla.rog. I want firefox to try, and if it does not exist, I demand to be notified that it does not exist. With an error message. URL not found. Error 404.

But instead, Firefox silently changes mozilla.rog to mozilla.org (and probably any page e.g. from .rog to .org, and from .ocm to .com , and the like) without my permission, and loads this other page I did not type in.

I do NOT and NEVER allow ANY program to alter my commands without notifying me.

so... which about:config setting disables this autocorrection-behavior?

I have a virtual w10x64 machine which I need to play old flash content on a specific (trusted) website which is the only one allowed in mms.cfg and which does not use https. With the latest update to 78.9 FF does not open the flash content and the pages anymore. So I reverted to 78.8 but the auto-update always intercepts.

How can I disable the auto-updates for good? Is there possibly a policy for this?

I think the FF programmers need better imagination on specific scenarios before they impose so called "security features" on the users and break their processes.

Mac OS 10.10.2 Firefox 78.9

Problem: When I go back from full screen mode, the half top of tabs(more like the 2/3 part to the tab) becomes not clickable. Only way to solve it is just to restart the browser.

There is another thing that could provide a bit more info. No matter whether I've ever made it full screen or not, the 2/3 top area of the tabs will never turn grey when I put my mouse on it.

No add-ons and themes installed. Tried safe mode and it didn't works.

The same bug exists on the other Mac, which runs an older version of firefox.

When I go to firefox preferences and then go to "search," I try to click on the arrow below "default search engine" but nothing comes up. When I try to search in the address bar, it takes me to websites named after the first word I typed. When I tried searching in a separate tool bar, I'd type something, hit enter, and nothing would happen. Please help, this is very annoying because whenever I want to search something I have to type google and then type my question in on the actual google website.

I am writing a program that requires me to detect when a shift key is pressed and do something. Something like

window.addEventListener('keydown', event => console.log(event), false); // expect to see an event logged to console when pushing the "shift" key

This works great on all browsers except Firefox. "alt" and "fn" keys are also not able to be detected on Firefox. Is there some sort of advanced security settings I can disable to let me capture these things?

Thanks in advance.

I am using the current version of Waterfox G3.2.0. No matter what I set my default zoom to in preferences, every tab I open defaults to a previous value I had set for the default zoom. I have only set the default zoom once which was the previous time @ 150%. Now every tab opens @ 150%. I have tried closing all tabs and then settings a new value in preferences and then opening a first tab which didn't work.
