Just as title said. I was able to perform this tab with ease before the new update with the new look and feel. After the update (running ver 89.0 on PC), I can no longer move opened tabs to the left or right to reorder.

Any ideas to fix the issue?

Hi for a while now, few months Firefox crash like crazy on my PC

Sometimes it would just crash at start, and refused to open Sometimes tab start crashing, and eventually firefox crashes

Common sites where i see the crash happens are cnn.com and nba.com

I usually restart my PC , refresh firefox or reinstall it to get rid of the crashes but this is very tiring , very tiring

I am sure its something on my PC that causing the conflict, because even reinstalling doesnt entirely fix it

But i have no clue what it could be

I use Firefox to access our company's online testing site. Sometimes a customer will call us to update their name on our system. I go to the customer's record on the website and make the change. Once I save the record, I could go back to that customer access their testing data and download a certificate which downloads as a pdf. With the previous version of Firefox, the certificate would download and the changes I made were shown on the new certificate download. In the new version (89.0) the new download does not show the changes I made. I assume this is because the cookies or cache are not updating properly. Can you give me some idea of what to try to fix this.

I performed the same routine in Chrome and it works perfectly and also in Edge.

For a couple months now I have not been able to paste anything on Facebook via Firefox. I can use Explorer, Chrome and can paste anywhere else just fine. When I paste on Facebook messenger, the chat window closes and I have to refresh Facebook to even be able to see my messages again. Otherwise, I click on it and nothing happens. When I try to paste a post on my wall, it I get a "Something isn't working. This may be because of a technical error we're working to fix." (I just copied and pasted that here no problem) Tried clearing history/cookies/cache. Help?

I cannot enter anything into the search field of the Firefox home page. If I go to Google.ca, it works fine. I have the same problem signing onto my bank's web site. I cannot enter anything into the field to take my debit card number. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it to no avail. If I use the TAB button to go to the next field, it always skips the field I am having trouble with.

I have a problematic site where I have to delete all cookies before I can get access. I have tried setting the "Cookie and Site Data" Exceptions to both "Allow for Session" and "Block". Despite these settings, Firefox continues to store cookies from this site....therefore, I still have to clear them from the "manage data" area before I can gain access.

Is this a Firefox quirk? I am at a loss.

Thanks.

Hey all,

After recent update i noticed that amazon, news.google, gmail, olx and other websites, facing issues with the sites loading completely, it looks like the mobile version is loading, or some issues with website being loaded completely. I don't see any issue with opening those websites on chrome. Gmail is going crazy though, have to load it twice, sometimes i cannot send mails, keeping showing error.

Everyday i use firefox, but never faced any issues till date, this only after the last update, which is the dark theme as such. Any fix please?

Latest update installed and lo and behold, once again Mozilla screwed it up. I now have one tab on the bottom of the page instead of many in a toolbar at the top of the page. Mozilla continues to ignore users' complaints about tab location preferences and other tab functionality and arbitrarily making decisions which for most people make no sense. This latest iteration of Firefox (89.0) is for me the last straw. I will no longer humor Mozilla by spending countless frustrating hours correcting your obvious lack of programming skills by attempting to return my browser to what it was prior to another faulty update. My patience has finally run out. Before I leave Mozilla and Firefox, one last comment. Because the Mozilla support forum relies on amateurs and volunteers to answer users questions, and since I have had trouble getting workable solutions to my problems, I tried to send feedback directly to Mozilla. That was a monumental task which I was not up to, obviously, which is why I'm here. Whatever good there is in Firefox is far out weighed by the lack of programming skills, beta testing, quality control, etc. prior to forcing out updates to it's users. Like many recent users I have decided to forego further use of the Firefox browser which is unreliable from a development team which does not seem to care. I am beginning to wonder if the continuing screw ups are being deliberately caused by embedded saboteurs from Google or Microsoft!

jscher has been very helpful with my intense dislike of Version 89, but in the last few days, something changed here and I can't get back into that discussion.

I updated my upstairs PC to 89, then was absolutely horrified when I saw it. It's ugly. There is little to no differentiation between the different parts of the screen. My Bookmarks list had so much extra white space added that I had to scroll down three screens to see it all - it used to fit on one page.

You made the type smaller and the bubbles larger.

You changed the ENTIRE Options menu so it's now hard to find what I want, and some functions have been removed.

Also, your STOP POPUPS no longer works AT ALL. I am being inundated with them.

I was so angry at this terrible Facebook-like new version that I deleted FF completely, ran CCleaner and re-loaded Version 88. Of course I lost all my favorites while doing this. When I went back upstairs a few hours later, the update was re-done WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Very sneaky.

I found out how to shut off all the Proton stuff, so I can now use FF upstairs. I see tons of "fixes" using CSS stuff, which I am not comfortable using. A browser should make these options EASY!

You say this is a "new, clean look." You didn't take into consideration that many users like the way it looked before, and don't want to re-learn an entire new program. Please add back in choices for those of us who are not IT geek coders and just need a simple, FUNCTIONING browser.

I am building a website with Korsakow (interactive film application). The app says to use Firefox and I have in the past been able to load the "index" direct from my computer to preview my work in progress. This isn't currently working. Any ideas? This is the error message in FF (and other browsers I've tried): "An error happened while loading the film. Your browser might not allow loading web pages directly from your computer. Please try uploading your film."

I've read the instructions from 2020 on how to fix this: "To disable search and force everything typed on the address bar to be treated as URLs, follow the steps below.

   Go to about:config
   Accept the risk and continue.
   Search for keyword.enabled and toggle it's value from True to False.
   Search for browser.fixup.alternate.enabled and toggle it's value from True to False."

There are various versions of these fixes. None of them work so far. The problem continues. When I enter a search term in the Firefox search function on the body of the webpage, the search area greys out, the search text pops up in the address bar, which reads it as an url, and the next message from Firefox is:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at test. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

The 3rd image attached here shows that there is no option to remove Search from the address bar in settings. The 1st of 2 options is "use the address bar for search and navigation". The 2nd of 2 option is "add search in toolbar." Switching to the second option does not resolve the problem of the "main body search bar" not working.

Note: Firefox is set to Allowed by firewall and antivirus program which includes VPN.

So I've got a 60% keyboard, and I have backtick mapped to Win+Escape. This works fine in every other browser/application that I've tested it in, but Firefox just doesn't want to take it; I don't know if there is a default binding that's taking over or if the super key is explicitly ignored, but absolutely nothing happens when I press the combo. This is particularly annoying when I'm trying to type out code fences on Slack/Discord.

Any insight would be much appreciated.
