How can I turn this message off? Some sites I visit give me that message, it shows up when I'm typing a reply to something which pushes the page lower and fouls up my ability to keep typing, then if goes away, comes back, goes away ... I just want to kill the message entirely. I'm not worried about speed, there's nothing to fix, I just want the message gone.

I noticed that someone else had this question, but instead of answering it, it just got archived.

When browsing Youtube, the browser Back Button doesn't work. For example, if I start on the Youtube main page, then click on a video, it will show the video. But then, when I click the browser's "Back" navigation buttion, it does not take me back to the main page. The URL in the address bar will be the main page, but it will continue to display the video I just watched instead.

This only seems to happen on Youtube. It's been a problem for a while - possibly as much as 2 years or even more. And it doesn't happen every single time. However, it has been happening a lot more frequently lately.

It's almost as if Firefox just doesn't want to refresh.

I've tried clearing the cache. The problem persists. I've dried disabling all add-ons. It still happens. I've tried running it in troubleshooting mode. Still a problem.

I've tried to duplicate this in Microsoft Edge; it doesn't seem to happen there.

A friend has passed away and I cannot access her obituary page. I could for a couple of days but I can't any more. Is this a problem with the FF latest upgrade? The page is [link removed by moderator]

I do not want her obituary page made public on a forum in case it causes inappropriate comments.

I have just discovered the page works ok on Chrome so I will use that for now, but I am reporting the problem to try and help you. I am using latest version of Firefox.

I have added a screen snip of the part-loaded page.

I just followed the button below about extra troubleshooting information and lost all the information I had typed into this box, which irritates me as well.

Have a look please and let me know, thanks.

I have multiple internal websites, which all follow the pattern of [site.one.two] which resolves fine using the internal DNS server i have configured by going to https://site.one.two and through other programs via site.one.two, and all the [one.two] suffixes are blacklisted from being resolved with DoH in firefox, but it still forces a web-search, even with searching from address bar being turned off, instead of resolving through my local DNS server (local server resolves local domain suffixes, anything else gets resolved through cloudflare DNS). I haven't found a fix in any other forums, and there are enough unique internal addresses that manually adding each and [every site.one.two] as an exception would be something i would like to avoid. Is there any way to tell firefox to resolve through DNS first for addresses or domain suffixes?

Hello! I have a Mailchimp signup form here: https://utexas.us4.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=91ef16fd009c97ce473909aa7&id=1d94de45cb

The form should display with checkboxes that allow multi-select. It used to work that way in Firefox, but currently it only highlights the selection and doesn't allow more than one option to be selected. It works correctly in Chrome and Edge, however. Is there a way to get this working again? Thanks in advance for any advice!

So I was sent a picture in .heic format. Trying to open it FF entered an endless loop opening new tabs with names like: "/tmp/pid-949/IMG_9409.heic". There was no easy way to stop it, the 'X' button did nothing. It opened hundreds of tabs. I had to kill all my tabs to get rid of them. BTW there's supposed to be a 'Recover Previous Session' button in the main menu. Not there. On line, I see several different images of what my main menu is supposed to look like but mine is nothing like that. I have 115.6.0esr (64-bit).

Apps Firefox and Thunderbird are having problems opening links to webpages. In particular, Cloudflare cannot verify (it just cycles between a checkbox "Are you human?" and a browser check) when I use FF.

I use Win11 with NordVPN, but this wasn't a problem before the latest Win11 update. (It also seems to have affected TB reconnecting to Ymail.) I'm now using Chromium to read my Ymail avoid Cloudflare verification, but I'd rather keep using FF and TB apps.

I've been going though Cloudflare, NordVPN and Mozilla online help for a few days now, and I think I've tried everything there.

Thoughts?

On my old iMac, Firefox remembered sites I had visited and filled them in, like if I typed A it would autofill Amazon.

Please keep in mind that I am technically retarded and need step by step guidence. Thank you in advance for your help

Is there a way to transfer all my log ins and their words from my desktop Mac to my new lap top Mac Air. I need to do it possible my a flash drive since the first time I did it by migration and overloaded the lap top with all the stuff on the desk top. After lots of work to delete everything and reinstall the OS I did it by the flash drive. But I don't have all my logins and their passwords on the lap top.

Hi. Is there a way to customize the order of Firefox headers and footers on printed pages (including print-to-pdf)?

I prefer the header to be url only, in the center. While the footer has page on left; title in the center, and date on the right.

This used to be easy to accomplish with print options in older versions, then -- as the print dialog changed (and actually improved a lot in most *other* ways) I had to turn to about:config modifications like those described in the 1/27/21 reply here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323433. But now I can't seem to find any way to have any control over print headers besides "on" and "off."

One problem I find with having both page title and url on top is that these can be long, causing one or both to be truncated.

I'm using Firefox 115.3esr.

When I go into fullscreen on firefox macos, hovering near the top shows the traffic lights (fullscreen, minimize, close window buttons) and moves everything down. This may be expected behavior, but it is very annoying as when you try to open new tabs the tab bar moves out of the way of the traffic lights, and the traffic lights area is around the size of the tab bar. Is there any way to make the traffic lights always visible or keep them from moving?
