When composing emails in Gmail holding down a (any) key does not activate key repeating.

Also, the there are irregularities when using discover.com in Ver. 124. When editing my customer profile, keystrokes are not recognized. Nothing happens when typing. I also had difficulty signing-in; this may be coincidental.

Things tried: (1) A different keyboard. Same results. (2) Firefox version 122. The key repeat function worked in Gmail. I could edit my profile at discover.com. (3) Uninstalled and reinstalled ver. 124. All problems persisted. (4) Ran Ver. 124 in troubleshooting mode. All problems persisted. (5) Launched newly downloaded versions of both 122 and 124 (from command line) and ran them simultaneously. The problems persisted in 124 (troubleshooting mode), but 122 worked well. I used two different keyboards with no difference noticed. (6) Downloaded and ran Chromium. All worked well.

My default search engine was Norton Safe Search but now it does not appear as one of the options to choose. I cannot remember all of them. Bing and Google are two of them but not Norton Safe Search although I have been able to add it to the toolbar. Why is it no longer one of the options?

While hovering over a Youtube video it shows the full video title as "hover text" if the tab is focused. However, if something else, even another Firefox window is focused hovering no longer shows anything. Is there some kind of setting to change that? I figured it could be browser and Youtube specific because Chrome shows it on Youtube even when not focused, but neither browser shows it on Google search for example, but I'm not sure.

Today I tried using a Socks5 proxy that requires user and password. It seems that this is still unsupported as already concluded in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1237174 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122752

Any news on this?

Kind regards,

PS: I _was_ able to use the very same proxy with curl with

curl --proxy-user user1:pass1 --socks5 "http://localhost:1080" https://www.google.de

You may have heard about this, Youtube (and parent Google) have recently declared war on adblockers and non-Chrome browsers. I have reason to believe they have escalated that war to deliberately crash non-Chrome browsers, at least slowing them down to make them non-responsive.

In the past few days, browsing Youtube has caused my system to stop responding requiring a power cycle to clear the problem.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is this just a bad setting, or is Youtube acting as malicious as I believe them to be?

Hello, I'm using Firefox as my default browser for a while now (10+ years) and I'm getting frustrated with this issue when using Azure Devops. Comments don't load at all and most pages take a long time to load if they load at all. Various features also take a long time to load or don't work at all (examples include adding a reviewer, referencing a story with #, etc.). Anyone else experience this?

It works well for maybe an hour, and after a couple of days it makes no sense anymore.

Now I'm using firefox containers with a container only for Azure Devops and seems working better but ... Curious thing is that it pops up and asks for credentials periodically every 5 or 10 minutes. Well, unless the boxes are already filled up with the credentials.

Thanks,

I use several add-ons in firefox, and largely they feel trustworthy, but I dont have any means for limiting the scope of what they are able to do, the manifest tells me what they can do and thats it. I have read through this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions, but I have had a hard time even understanding which permissions let an add-on make network requests.

Barring the ability to actually stop add-ons from making network requests is there any visibility into what requests are being made by an extension, or all extensions in the browser?

Please provide a native way to change the behaviour of Ctrl-W. I tend to switch between aZerty and qWerty keyboard layouts, as a result I sometimes hit ctrl-W when I would like to ctrl-Z some change. As a result I tend to lose some work when the tab I'm working in closes. It would be nice to be able to rebind some of the default key combinations, or at least disable them.

I found a method description that edits the omni.ja file, but also that this method is unsupported. Moreover, running ubuntu kind of rules this out as an option, as canonical has ruled that firefox is to be installed via snap, in a read-only data store.

Hi all.

I have a phone, a tablet, a desktop pc and a server all with Firefox installed. I need to sign in to Firefox on another pc, but I can't remember my password. Not sure why as I'm fairly sure I know what it is and I only signed in on my phone 2 months ago. Although maybe that was a qr code?

First question: the 'password' field in the account manager is 18 asterisks long, does that mean my password is actually 18 characters? Or is this just a generic mask? I have seen it work both ways. A clue to the length might jog my memory.

Second question: assuming it's gone for good I can of course reset it. What's the least damaging way to do this? I can think of backing up my bookmarks and then reuploading them, anything else? Will the reset lose all my passwords for other sites such as forums, is there a way to keep these?

Thanks!

Hi, we have recently moved our website to a new host. I see VERY long delays - up to 25 sec! - with the main page loading, and 16 sec on sub-pages, so it's not a main page size issue.

I am trying to supply data to the web host provider. When I type the URL in the Firefox address bar, e.g., foo.com, the status bar literally says foo.com for up to 25 seconds, followed by "transferring data" (can't read the rest of the line), then the page loads immediately.

A similar delay of 16 sec occurred in Chrome earlier today, so I don't think it's a Firefox issue.

I am trying to understand what the status bar messages Firefox is presenting. I don't think it's DNS because ping resolves in 106 ms. Site monitoring tools might be useful, but they just spot-check. Tool suggestions appreciated.

If you've read this far, the actual domain is cleanscape.net. Thank you!

Hi. I am running a 3 monitor setup and I like to keep open quite a few tabs. And two windows of Firefox. So two Firefox instances with several tabs on each. But because it eats a lot of memory, I have to close and reopen Firefox from time to time. And to my annoyance, sometimes it "forgets" about one of the windows. So opens only one instead of both. Therefore I loose some quite important tabs. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you.
