I can't stand Microsoft Edge. It's a CPU and memory hog. However, I must resort to using it when I watch a video from VUDU on any of my workstations. According to the fine folks at VUDU, Firefox is not supported in HDX or 1080i mode when using the VUDU site. According to the info that shows when you launch VUDU on a Windows device (in this case, Windows 10 or Windows 11) using Firefox, you get a message that the video is only supported in SD or 720 dpi mode. To get anything above SD mode, you have to use Microsoft Edge. Is there a developmental issue preventing such use or is this a limitation forced on Firefox users because Microsoft does want you using anything but Edge?

It's just a bit frustrated to have to use MS Edge instead of my default browser, Firefox. For the record, I just checked to be sure. There's a marked difference in resolution between Firefox and Edge on the same video.

Hi - I just moved files to a new computer using PCmover. It did successfully move Firefox over including bookmarks and themes. However, I am unable to use any of my themes even though I click on "Enable" (I did try a couple of different themes). I had Personas Plus previously installed on my old computer to use to change themes but, while it is there in the list of Extensions, I can't click to enable it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!

Some webpages cause the browser to automatically reload them at periodic intervals. Sometimes these intervals are too short and in the middle of reading the webpage it gets reloaded.

How do I prevent Firefox from accepting a reload command from the webpage I am currently browsing?

I did not see an answer to this in the FAQ.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and answering if you choose to do so.

How do I tell Firefox what to do when I click on a link to a file (PDF, JPEG, Word, etc.). I want to have the options of either opening the file or saving it to a specific folder that I choose. I am 87 years old and somewhat computer-savvy, but please give me geezer-friendly instructions, step-by-step and click-by-click. Windows 10 and Firefox 101.

What happens now when I click on such a link is this: My only option is to save it -- and Firefox has chosen (apparently at random) a folder to save it to.

When using Mozilla/Firefox (but not when using Chrome) many links do not work (e.g tracking packages from UPS or FedEx). Also even though under setting I check"save logins and passwords for websites) they are not being saved. I need to login manually to access most websites

Please advise how to correct these issues. Due to security issues I greatly prefer to avoid Chrome/Google !

I'm not sure what is causing this, but it started at least a few months ago. I will be using firefox, and anywhere between a few minutes, or a few days, it will suddenly stop loading anything and I will have to completely quit it and restart it to get anything working again. No, it is not the HTTP3 problem; that was the first thing I tried. I've also uninstalled, and reinstalled the entire program, clearing all settings, etc. I am on windows. Generally good on firefox updates, will check and update usually every week or two.

Funny thing is, I also installed firefox nightly and that does not have this problem (although I have not used it as extensively as I normally do when browsing, so maybe I didn't hit whatever triggers this issue). It also works properly on other computers (as far as I'm aware). So I still think something is corrupt or wrong with my normal firefox program. I just don't know what or how.

So, I joined a couple porn sites recently, but I can't download anything from them at home (I can download from the same sites on my work PC without error). I try to download MP4 files and even compressed ZIP files (containing large number of photos). I right-click on the Download link and chose Save Link As. As the browser is opening a window for me to browse to where to save the file to, an error message pops up. "filename.mp4.part could not be read from the source file. Please contact the system administrator" The download is never placed in the download queue and if I browse (in File Explorer) to where I tried to save the file to, the file shows as 0 kb. I have experienced this in Microsoft Edge, too, so it may be computer-wide, such as antivirus blocking the downloads. I have Chrome but Chrome crashes about 5 mins after opening it. I will add that Firefox can save JPG picture files from the websites. I have tried going to Show All Download and clicking Clear Downloads, but as the downloads in question are not queueing, there is not much to clear there. I really don't believe this is an issue related to MP4 files as I can playback MP4 files on the sites. Windows 10 and latest Firefox version. Next troubleshooting steps for me are temporarily disable my antivirus and try saving to a different folder, preferably on the internal HDD. Normally, I save videos to an external USB HDD.

Hello,

The next message/previous message arrows that appear at the top of an open email in Hotmail.com is being blocked by Firefox. I checked Hotmail through another browser and they are not blocked. I tried refreshing Firefox and they were still blocked. I've opened Firefox without add-ons and they are still blocked. I'm at a loss as to how to get them back. They were there last week and then vanished only to come back on Friday and vanish again while I was reading emails. From time to time Firefox also blocks images in Hotmail and I just have to wait and eventually they return. I'm at a loss as to understand why these things are happening so frequently with Firefox and Hotmail.

Please help return Hotmail to the way it was before the last update.

Thanks,

Brian Himes

I am using current version of FF on an HP W10 laptop. I use Lastpass as my password manager. Periodically, I need to log into optumrx.com, and I can't remember the last time I had a problem. The past few days, when I use Lastpass or just open optumrx on my own, I am asked to verify a code texted to me cell phone. It recognizes me by name and then proceeds to cycle endlessly through several pages without landing and stopping on that page. I contacted optumrx and they suggested using Edge, which did behave normally.
