Preamble: for most of the day I have Firefox open with several tabs. For a specific project I want Firefox open with one tab showing a specific webpage. At the same time I don't want to delete the existing tabs in the existing instance of Firefox - I want to keep them running in the background. Question: how do I create a desktop shortcut which opens a new single instance of Firefox with a single tab showing a specific URL ?

Been using Firefox for some years with no probs, and I view YouTube videos constantly. But recently been getting a left to right twitch on the YouTube screen, and it seem after I've viewed a video --- very weird! Don't get the same problem with Chrome, but I'd rather continue using Firefox. Can I fix this?

I noticed on your introduction to this screen you state:- "Be descriptive. Saying “playing video on YouTube is always choppy” will help us understand the issue..." Do I have the same problem?

Thanks

I use Outlook Web Access to view my emails for work. When I click on an email to read, it doesn't fill up the pane that opens, and it's about 1/3 of the pane. It must be a Firefox issue, as I don't have this same problem when I open up an email using Google Chrome. How do I get my email to fill the entire pane and not be shrunk to 1/3 of the reading pane when I open the email?

I now have Firefox 105.0.1, but since the update many web pages won't open, I just get the spinning circle. If I switch Firefox off and on again that fixes the problem for that site, but not for any others I subsequently try to open. I'm spending my whole day switching Firefox off and on again.

I'm using an online inventory system and regularly need to print barcode labels. This was all working fine until I updated to 102.3.0esr. Now, the data shrinks to a tiny part of the page when I go to print it. (See screenshots of what it looks like prior to going to the print dialogue and then when I actually go to print it). I've checked various settings suggested on previous posts that sound like the same problem but none of these work (Scaling, shrink, printer margins, clearing the cache etc.). If I choose a different printer and select A4 paper, the data looks to be the correct size (i.e. set for a 2x1 label), albeit on a much larger page.

I downloaded Chrome and I can get it to display and print ok from there. I just don't know what's happened in Firefox. Also, it's not just my system - one of my colleagues had a problem with a standard release. We changed him to the esr version (prior to the 102.3.0 update) and it worked ok then. Obviously something has happened in this update. Any help would be appreciated.

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

Firefox and other browsers PR Connection Reset Error

So i will describe exactly what ive done up until now.

Earlier today i logged into gitlab.com a website that has remote servers to remove a candidate from our server The reason this is relevant i think is i havent logged into this place for a good month or two, roughly 10-20 seconds afterwards, every tab in my entire firefox browser got the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR error, No matter which website i go to, even google, my email, youtube, anything and everything gives me the error, So the troubleshooting steps i have done from then - Cleared cache and cookies several times - Restarted both PC and router & manually reconnected the cables on both ends - I did the Cmd Command winsock reset & restarted the PC - Full reinstall of firefox in its entirety - Disabled entire kaspersky firewall & additional security - Disabled windows defender firewall aswell - Disabled VPN services on my system and within the browser

After trying all these things i gave up on firefox and decided to download chrome and try this, chrome worked!, And then i imported my bookmarks and such ( i work from home so thats vital), And after importing them i began jumping through sites to make sure everything was working and it was, then i began logging into my pages again like email, google , youtube, work stuff etc, and eventually the gitlab account aswell.. and then, another 10 seconds late it immediately stopped working on google chrome, all tabs claim to have no internet and stick me with the ERR CONNECTION CLOSED error, Once again i preformed the same troubleshooting steps but nothing came of it. So both firefox and chrome are bricked and refuse to work.

Im currently using microsoft edge to write this and im afraid to touch anything here or login to anything incase it also breaks.

Shortly after chrome gave up the game, i tried to do a full reinstall of firefox, again did not work, i then tried to do a reinstall of chrome, and the chrome installer now claimed i had no internet, whilst i was on call in discord and using other programs with internet. so chrome refused to install, I then managed to install the chrome 'standalone' which doesnt require internet and it worked, i did not import anything this time and just browsed around, and shortly after, once again, without logging into anything, it gives me the same error, and now even if i reinstall the standalone chrome, it refuses to work, once its broke its broke for good.

Im completely at a loss here i feel like ive been hacked or something because it works then suddenly its broke forever, ive been reading up that it may be something on my PC cutting the connection to everything but i really am clueless on what it could be, this was the first time i used my PC today, i didnt have any driver or windows updates, if anyone can provide literally any context or help here it would be greatly appreciated, im not one to make support tickets because i usually research until i fix it, but im out of options

Thank you!

On my Toshiba laptop, but not on my desktop, when I reboot and click on any bookmark or on any tab to search for anything it just keeps trying to access it forever. If I close Firefox and start again, it says Firefox is running and needs to close and do I want to close it - Yes but does it again and again. Sometimes waiting awhile, it eventually works.

3 days ago I closed my main Firefox Windowby accident, while other windows were open. To restore, I just used the normal "recently closed windows" option and reopened my windows. Immediatly, all my tabs that were assigned to "Containers" were duplicated, and I lost the "Simple Tab Groups" order. For each tab on a container, a second was created without an assigned container. Fine, i thought, just closed 130 tabs that were unassigned, and moved them to the right Groups again. Next day, i open firefox, same thing. All tabs duplicated (but now on the proper groups). Closed 130 duplicated tabs and moved on. But I can't spend 5 minutes each day doing it! Testing more, I realized that every time I close and reopen Firefox, all the tabs assigned to a Container get a copy. If i close and reopen firefox 10 times, i will get 10 copies of all tabs, with no assigned containers to them, ending up with 1300 unnecessary tabs.

I just cant figure out how to fix it. Any advice?

I have set the "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" option to Tabliss

However when launching Firefox, it starts in google.com and when I checked the "Homepage and new windows" option it was reset to google.com without me touching it.

I tried using custom URLs and put in "moz-extension://something-something/index.html" but it still didn't work and resets to google.com when relaunching Firefox.

I also tried putting other URLs such as YouTube it still put me into google.com when relaunched and resets it again.

It only works when I open a new tab.

How do I make Tabliss (or anything else) as my homepage when I launch Firefox?
