It seems Mozilla has removed the SSB option from firefox. I used that all the time and without it, I have had to revert to using chrome, which I don't want to do. Wny remove a feature? Its buggy? So what. A buggy hidden beta feature is better than no feature at all. It has users, including me. So just leave it as unsupported. Don't just axe it.

As to it having "no benefit". Absolutely the opposite - in a world where every app is now a cloud web app, we need to be able to separate different apps within windows, not just have multiple indistinguishable windows or tabs for each of the apps. So yes this was a seriously retrograde decision, and one which is sending firefox in a backward direction. SSB was the future. It's just few people were aware.

So when are mozilla going to reverse this decision? Does anyone know any other clever way to achieve the same thing - i.e. a separate fixed app for each webpage.

Hey There, since I installed Win10 I do have the problem, that Firefox (updated) has big problems with just one Webside: www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de. It loads veeeery slowly, pictures need next to one minute to load and a yello top banner says allways: "Eine Webseite verlangsamt Ihren Browser". Which means: A webside is slowing down Your browser. All Tips and Tricks from Google are tried already. No success. Other websides and photos are loaded normally. Anybody from here can help?

Hi, I try to orginize my bookmar sidebar. I have "Other bookmarks" folder in the bottom, and try to drag it to top, but firefox creates a copy of folder instead of moving it. Also, I erroneously drag "Bookmark menu" and firefox create a copy of it inside "Other bookmarks" folder. It looks like cycle reference - when I click on "Bookmark menu" inside "Other bookmarks" I any time see again "Other bookmarks" and "Bookmark menu" inside it. Looks like nightmare! How can I fix it? please help!

I had to refresh my firefox browser. After that on the firefox new tabs page there is no possibility to show recommended articles by pocket any more.

I can not fix it. There is no possibility to switch it on in the options -> home settings.

There is not any checkbox for "recommended articles by pocket" any more.

How can I fix this?

I've been using firefox since it's early release. My PC is set up as a DAW and I have more audio cards and usb connection that routes audio around. Now I can have my main DAW software running on my monitors via ASIO, In windows I set the it to my secondary driver. Now can open firefox, go to youtube and sound from the browser goes there. I can start the DAW and have sounds there. It worked perfectly.

But now suddenly no sound in Firefox. I just starts, no errors or anything, but no sound. I had a look a some of the FAQ's but nothing changed. Reinstall etc. Well short story, Edge works, so now firefox sadly have to go.

Thx for the good work. This is very good browser, but it don't work for me.

I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.

With Firefox 86.0.

In the preference page (about:preferences) we can specify default fonts, but the choices of fonts are not used when printing a web page if the page does not specify a font. (In my environment, although the default font is set to sans-serif, the serif font is used for printed pages.) Can we specify default fonts for printing? If not, I strongly think that Firefox should use the same font as the one for display (as long as the font is available for printing).

I just tried to print a list for the browser on Firefox and the new print options are useless. I use to be able to simplify, change background and have more options. This looks like the printing options on Microsoft Edge. I started using Firefox to get away from that. I mean if your going to mimic edge then why not use that browser instead??? Stop changing things. You update every 5 minutes and then it crashes, is to slow or just doesn't work. Slow the hell down and remember people like Firefox because it isn't like the big companies out there. It's a good browser. Leave it alone.

Hi, I can't play any videos with Firefox browser (facebook, youtube, email attachments..). I can play all these videos using other browsers (microsoft edge, chrome..) on the same laptop (Windows 10). I have tried several 'solutions' on the Firefox help forum such as deleting cookies, history etc but running out of patience and thinking of switching default browser. Any easy solutions would be appreciated.

I am not able to see live Streaming MJPEG video from both of my cameras on my new Samsung S21 Ultra. I had an S10 Plus and Firefox played both cameras video stream just fine. Odd thing is FireFox Focus plays both video streams like I experienced on my S10. But I have to login manually every time. I want to have the convenience of reg FireFox remembering user names etc. Any help is appreciated.

I am writing an extension based on NewTab Override. I would like to know if there is a way to set the browser address bar to have no text when focused, and if so how to do that. So far I am using the code from NewTab Override that does: ``` browser.tabs.update(tabId, { url : url, loadReplace : true }, () => {}); ``` But I don't know any function or property to set for the address bar. I looked in the developer page for Mozilla Firefox but couldn't find anything.

So I love Firefox but recently have a serious issue. my homepage is google.com. it goes there but when i type in my search it redirects to yahoo. I looked up the problem on my phone and it gave me instructions to go into the firefox add-ons and delete the add-ons. However when i click add on it doesn't come up. I cannot get into my add ons. To sum it up, my google is redirected to yahoo even though my default search engine is google, and i cannot get into my add-on tab to delete a possible malicious add-on.
