Hi there,

I'm migrating from Arc Browser and I was looking for a way to have two profiles, one for personal and one for work; for each have separate browsing history, cookies etc. and be able to switch between them either with a keyboard shortcut or in two clicks like in Arc.

If I understand correctly I can separate the users by going to about:profiles and creating such profiles, however the switch between them doesn't seem as seamless. I guess I'd like to create two separate workspaces rather than profiles, with complete separation of everything I do within each.

I tried the Multi-Account Containers extension but it doesn't seem to be this its purpose.

Hope I was clear in the explanation, apologies for the newbness.

Thank you!

Hello,

I use Firefox stable on both my Mac and my Win 11 PC. On the mac i use the developer edition. The issue I have started about 2-3 weeks ago. Most of the time, playing youtube 4k videos just either freezes and doesn't buffer, or just skips and reloads. It is not a network issue. I've tried playing back the same video with ARC on OSX (which is based on chromium) and with Chome on windows. It works flawlessly so it's not a network issue. I've tried disabling adblocker, all the extensions, nothing. It's either Youtube messing with non google products again or a problem with Firefox itself. I even have Youtube premium and this stuff still happens without adblockers.

Any help would be appreciated.

I love pocket but it is infuriating. I do something and a pocket page suddenly comes up with like 10 pictures and click links to articles. (And I don't know what I did to get this pocket page to come up. It happens when I do something online and I can't replicate it! It's always by accident. I google pocket and login but ti's not the same page with the same articles.) I see several articles I would like to read. I click on one and at least I can usually read that one, but then I go back and can't find the other articles I wanted to read and I cant get back to the same page displaying the articles. Now there are different articles! Today I clicked on one I wanted to read, was told to log in, which I did, then it took me to a pocket page which didn't have the article i wanted, and I cant find it. I also wanted to read another article and can't go back to find it either. This is infuriating! Can anyone help? And I doin't even know how to get back here to find your answer unless it goes to my email chaplaindon2000@gmail.com help!

I've been trying to reply to my previous question here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1440060, but my reply ends with an error - c attached. Therefore, I'm starting this new thread.

First, thank you for the answers. I have run into an issue and also have a follow-up question.

Follow up question: A while ago, I changed the autoplay settings in about:config, but I noticed they reverted to default. Do these settings reset with major browser updates? Or could it be that the settings' names changed, resulting in the default value being applied? Should I periodically check these values to ensure they haven't changed?

Issue: I updated the settings in about:config as mentioned in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1440060 by cor-el. It appears to have stopped the autoplay of videos. However, after browsing Google News and Yahoo News articles for about 30 minutes, my browser crashes. This happens under the same usage pattern as before. The browser becomes unresponsive, and if I click on anything, I see the rainbow Apple spinning wheel. Eventually, I have to force quit the browser. See attached.

Thank you!

In the past two days, any add-on I add to FF browser. does not have a "Pin" option ellipsis activated . Some of my other settings are also botched up: tab used to open on hitting "return" among them.

All comments etc, are either convoluted, unintelligible, and ALL do not address this issue. If someone knows what to do, chime in. many of us have this issue. But please, have a real solution or don't bother us.

When browsing in Firefox and I'm trying to select buttons to click, Firefox often now shows me a menu instead of allowing me to click. I have to migrate away from the button elsewhere on the page a few times and then get back to the button. Sometimes that works. Sometimes it doesn't. Why is it doing this now?

I have not updated firefox in a while, but recently got an error on netflix that my browser was no longer compatible and to update

So I updated to the latest version of firefox - 122.01 (64-bit) but now I have a new problem. I cannot watch anything on netflix or hulu (though I can on max for some reason).

Each time I try to play anything on netflix I get a white screen on firefox and it automatically takes me back to the sign in page of netflix. Each time I try to play anything on hulu it plays BUT I cannot see the video. I can hear it but the actual video isn't shown, the controls are there but I can only see the the menu/other things to watch of hulu (picture attached) though I can't actually click on any of the other shows

I do not have this problem on chrome but firefox is my main browser, can i get any assitance Things I have already tried: I completely cleared my history & cache after signing out of everything (did this twice). Turned off computer, signed back in but still have this issue

Currently, there appears to be only one option to tell Firefox to open a given site in a specific container; that is, from the URL bar, to the right.

Would it make sense to have this configuration option presented in "edit bookmark" and/or in a right-click pulldown menu "Always open in this container"?

The Command+M keyboard shortcut only minimizes Firefox one time after the initial boot of the system and stop working thereafter. Opening the Window menu in the top menu bar and then clicking minimize also fails to minimize Firefox. The only thing that works to minimize the Firefox window is clicking on the minimize bar on the top left of the window.

How do I get COMMAND + M to consistently minimize Firefox?
