Whenever I search something and follow a link, or if I'm on a page and click a link to another site or page, the history in the tab gets overwritten.

I've only noticed it this month and if I'm looking for something quickly its extremely frustrating having to re search with the same parameters over and over or remember to open every search in its own tab.

I've had a hard time searching this issue, I don't know if my terminology is right or if it's just a very niche issue I'm having.

Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

Firefox 95.x Crashes Immediately in Google Street View, Facebook 3D Photos

Greetings,

For a few months I've been experiencing consistent crashing in Firefox 95.x versions. At first the crashing happened "randomly" while browsing Facebook, but I eventually identified a pattern and learned that the crashes would happen when a Facebook 3D photo attempted to render in the feed.

Since then, I'm able to consistently reproduce the same crashing issue by opening Google Maps and launching street view. The crash happens immediately when street view attempts to load (unsuccessfully). This happens even with all plugins disabled.

Unfortunately I've had to failover to Google Chrome due to the stability issues in Firefox, though I would like to return to Firefox if this issue can be resolved. The issue does not present itself in other browsers.

I'm currently on Firefox v95.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7, and my GPU is an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M.

Thanks for your support.

My Firefox keeps crashing all the time when i use it. Also when i can get a file open - it gives me black pages. I am tired of it and having to reboot my computer constantly. Used to be a great browser but am ready to quit it. Then a lot of programs it will not open at all.

Website database fails since most recent Firefox update

Hi Folks, I just tried to search an archive website, www.nwhs.org, the website for the Norfolk & Western Railroad Historical Society. I can get as far as drilling down to a specific class of equipment such as a freight car, and it gets as far as saying 'XX documents found for xxxx' and 'loading'. At this point, it should load a list of available drawings, with thumbnails of any that have been digitised. I have used this website many times and it has worked just fine. Now, following a recent Firefox update, it doesn't load the list with thumbnails, instead it jumps to saying 'of 0 documents' and nothing else happens, just blank window where the list & thumbnails should be.

I have rebooted my computer, checked to see if another programme was interfering somehow....nothing changed. As a last resort, I fired up MS edge and oh, look! The nwhs website works just fine....

I'm not a programmer, but the evidence suggests this is a Firefox issue. How do we push the 'undo' button on that darned update because it looks like the most recent one might be a bit of a screw-up....somebody, anybody, do it quick, before I get too cosy with Edge!

My laptop got corrupted since I turned it off at a time when I shouldn't have, and ever since then, whenever I have opened firefox it just shows a blank tab and any new tabs that I open are also blank. I can type in the search bar, but nothing happens. Even uninstalling and reinstalling firefox does not help. (I am currently asking this from my desktop)

using firefox 95.0.1, 64 bit, on LInuxMint 20.2 I am in Israel, when I use google search, the result of the search opens in Hebrew display language. The only way I have found to fix this, to display in English, is to change my IP address to an English speaking country, e.g. the USA.

another browser, for example Brave based on Chrome, it always opens a google search result in English.

Please fix this ASAP

Thank you

Please let me know how to prevent websites from automatically playing content. My autoplay setting is set to allow no audio and no video. On Fox News and other news sites when an article is selected, videos with audio automatically start. This is most distracting. Thank you! Jim Thompson, Mesa Arizona.

I use Mint 19.3 and is attached to a hardware product Winston Privacy which due to lack of sales the piece of Hardware is no longer available but the Hardware I have has a Lifetime License in the firmware. My point is the tracking that Mozilla does seems to be very high with Mozilla even though I have turned off the tracking with Firefox. As you can see with the attached file 'ScreenShot1' Pie graph Domain 'incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org' is the majority of the pie which has a count of 61 blocks. File 'ScreenShot2' shows the actual number count for the Domain.
