On occasion with mulitple pages open on firefox it then stops opening up to any new page. I can be watching a YouTube video on page 1 while reading on page 2 or more, and then page 2 will no longer bring up new pages. Page one also stops going to any new site requested at that point. Although the curent page will still work. At that point I have to shut down the browser to regain control. What is happening here?

Ver 102 just downloaded Settings are set to Open link in New Tab, not in a new window.

It doesn't work. A new window opens regardless

And I am getting really tired of these constant updates, bringing faults and need to rebuild all my settings each time. It used to be faultless. Now it fails to work properly.

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered - I have this ticked but when I restart Firefox, it is UNticked. I created a new clean profile, and the same thing happens with that. This started I think once I updated to version 102.0 64bit recently, and seems to have broken Twitter login - each time I have to go to settings, and clear history - after doing some experiments as to what bit of History needed clearing, it was the setting "offline site data" that was the critical one. Why won't Firefox, even in a brand new profile with no addons, REMEMBER that I have ticked ""Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered"? Firefox desktop, 102.0 64 bit, Windows 7. Thank you.

So, I've migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and it's great, but I have a couple of issues now. One of them is with web push notifications from Google. First, I had an issue with notifications not showing up at all (or maybe they do show up, but the timeout is short and I miss them), but I've solved that with this in about:config set to tru:

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled

Now, notifications do stay on until I click them, but when I click them, all they do is close, disappear. And I'm talking only about YouTube notifications, when I get them from other websites, they work fine, I click on them and the proper link opens.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Gmail freezes & keeps trying to connect. All other sites work & there is no problem with internet connection or speed. Refreshing the tab does not help. I have to close and restart Firefox. I've tried disabling all extensions but as this only happens once every day or so it is difficult to troubleshoot. I have these extensions: AdBlocker Ultimate; Copy Page Address; Copy PlainText; DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; Enhancer for YouTube; Google Page Translate; Reverse Google Image Search; Tab Mix - Links; Wikipedia-En; YouTube search engine. Thanks.

Got a tough one: First time I have seen this problem: FF portable has an executable out front up top, and an executable in a deeper 32-bit folder and a 64-bit folder. Any modifications to the browser, including themes and colors and appearance mods ...are displayed when you open the browser to surf, (32-bit,) but if I click from an email link - it opens the uppermost executable instead - with none of the mods I have made to the browser. (So the browser as it first appeared on install, with no/zero/nada customizations and extensions.) I cannot see how to make an email link refer to the deeper executable. Get it? Thanks for any assistance. (!)

Whenever I press space to scroll one page down the cursor dissapears. The same thing happens when I press `. As soon as I move the mouse it reappears but this is unwanted and annoying behavior which didn't happen in the past. I'm not sure when it started happening but it hasn't been long since that. I tried restarting with all the plugins turned off but that didn't help. I'm using the latest version of FF on Win 7 x64.`

I am trying trying to install Thunderbird, as told by my Internet Provider. They have indicated they will no longer allow he POP3 version that my email software has because of security reasons and have indicated to use you as a replacement. So when I try to install this software on my computer I get an error message, indicating that the User Name is incorrect and I have verified it several times, I know it to be correct, the only thing that I can think of is that Thunderbird does not accept of ".info" into the software. If so is there a way a to get this added to the software so I can get added to the software? My next question is the ".online" extension is the I would be inquiring about as I also use that extension for my business.

Please let me know. My email address is [email]@joelsphotos.info.

Various website that contain dynamic content are not being rendered by Firefox to display that content. This is happening with websites that provide transportation information and ticketing, including Amtrak and Peter Pan Bus Lines . It is also happening with a genealogical website, FamilyTreeDNA, on pages that should be displaying family tree information. Illustrations of two pages are attached. I have been able to access the information by using Opera on this same computer and operating system, and by using the same version of Firefox installed on a different computer with different operating system. I am not sufficiently proficient with website development to know or understand what type of dynamic content is being generated by these websites, or how Firefox interprets the content. My suspicion is that some Firefox setting has been enabled or disabled, but I do not know which one it would be.
