Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

So after 13 years, Mozilla has changed the shortcut for "Copy link" from A to L.

This is an INSANE move! Copying links isn't some obscure power command, it's a basic, everyday function that everyone needs to use. Who doesn't have to copy URL links from time to time?

Moving the key to L makes the shortcut so much more difficult to use now. You're required to move your left hand a long way, and look down at the keys. It takes forever and interrupts the flow of browsing the web. It's stupid. Why not change the key to C? Isn't that logical?

I wish I could give Mozilla feedback about this, but sadly I can't.

Can someone please tell me how to change this back WITHOUT installing an extension. If Mozilla have just suddenly changed this key without even giving users an option to change it back, that is terrible.

Hi, Firefox just automatically updated on both of my laptops, one running Windows 10 and one running Windows 7, and now sites like Crave TV and ctv.ca are telling me Firefox is an unsupported browser and I can't even access those sites troubleshooting through Firefox. The sites work with other browses i have on my computer but Firefox has long been my browser of choice. I have contacted Crave and they had me change Firefox settings and nothing worked. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox as well. I have also completely disabled my antivirus software and that didn't work. Yes, i have restarted my computers several times.

To note, i was in the hospital for 3 months so my computers weren't running and probably missed several interim updates although the complete reinstall would've negated any problems that may have caused.

Anyone know what's going on here?

Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit) Firefox seems to open two connections whenever it connects to a url.

I have a local web server that only allows a single connection at a time.

When I enter localhost:5409 as the address firefox immediately opens two connections to the port. The first connection sends no data whatsoever. The GET request is sent out the second connection. This is not useful.

I think if you want to open two connections the GET request should go out on the first connection.

Perhaps the above behaviour is by design but I think it is a problem.

Please explain

These three web sites routine will not respond to Firefox when I need to information like actual monthly billing data or to make an inquiry or change to their service. They do respond quickly and with accurate data when I have to use Google Chrome because Firefox either locks up when when I reach their site, or Firefox does not even allow access to that site, as is the case as with WAFED bank. When I attempt to access my bank account yesterday and today, I get the message of Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead, and access is denied with a major warning of risk!!!!

a Refresh because Firefox was running slow, sometimes I'm not able to click my mouse to use as ENTER. Clicking my mouse for ENTER seems as if its not one of it's functions so I have to literally press the ENTER button on my keyboard. That's only one of my problems that I am having with Firefox. So I decided to REFRESH Firefox. Now my bookmarks are missing so I followed the steps and went to>> HELP> More Troubleshooting Info>>PROFILE folder>> Open profile >>bookmarkbackups but there's nothing in that folder, it's empty. So where are my Bookmarks? This is a headache that happens every time I have to REFRESH. I just want my Bookmarks back quickly & simple. I've looked in the OLD FIREFOX folder on my desktop & there's no Bookmarks in there either. I apologize for this article because I know it sounds like every other article about Bookmarks in here but I've become impatient and just want my Bookmarks back in place. It's like a wild goose chase with this issue.

After a recent update,I noticed the history is no longer being kept, I checked settings all is good there, also, I am unable to create a new bookmark and am unable to delete an existing bnookmark. I've gone through some of your help files but am unable to correct this. Is there a way to fix this without losing all my current bookmarks? Looked on the web for help but am unable to fix this.
