I am having an odd problem. For years now, I have always used Gmail and its integrated chat function on a daily basis through Firefox. I upgraded to their new chat a while ago with no problems until yesterday.

Starting yesterday, Gmail started getting a bit choppy with me in Firefox on my home connection. Google chat, if it loads at all, will very quickly tell me that it is unable to connect to individual conversations. Indeed, the windows for those conversations will not even load. This is the same regardless of whether I try to load chat through the main Gmail window or if I try to load chat directly at chat.google.com. The site works fine when I test it through Chrome. I have tried clearing cookies and refreshing the site data. It does not seem to matter if I am in incognito mode, so I don't think this is an extension problem. I've added exceptions for my antivirus, so I don't think it's that either.

The REALLY odd thing, however, is that the problem apparently seems to appear only when I am using Firefox and I have my computer connected to my router over ethernet. Firefox loads chat fine when my computer is just on wi-fi (and, again, seems to be fine regardless of whether I'm on ethernet or wi-fi when it comes to Chrome).

I'm not quite sure what to make of this. Other websites seem to be loading in Firefox as normal, regardless of whether I'm on ethernet or wi-fi. Perhaps the only other notable connection problem is that I have had problems with buffering on Spotify that has cropped up at roughly the same time (this one happens on both Chrome and Firefox).

It may well be that my ethernet cable got damaged somehow overnight, but given the fact that other websites have been fine and that I load Gchat fine when using Chrome, I figured I'd ask here to see if there is something I can check on the software side of things because given the setup up in my apartment, restringing a new ethernet cable would be a bit of a hassle. I'm happy to provide any additional information or logs that I can, but I only consider myself an educated layperson when it comes to computers, so I'm not sure what to attach that could be helpful.

Thank you in advance!

Hello, I am using Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on windows 11 Pro

I am unable to search through tags in firefox address bar as explained here in this documentation https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox

with that said, the problem is only with "+ tagname" not working, as I am able to filter through bookmarks using "* bookmark" and history and tabs. However, for tag search with "+", firefox doesn't work.

Kindly help,

Here is some additional information I collected based on other similar issues that might help.

Not, sure if the search byTag function is removed from Firefox or not ??

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

Recently got a new computer. Log in to gmail and after about 5 to 10 minutes of being in gmail I get an error message saying the connection failed and it must reconnect. Its not a internet issue. I can still go other places in a browser or have access to anything on the network. It is only Gmail. This didn't happen before on my old computer. I have reinstalled Firefox, gutted and reinstalled Firefox, tried it with a new profile. Tried it with the profile from my old computer. I cannot get it to stop. I found a setting online for HTTP time out for Firefox. I did increase that time out to 10 minutes but that did not seem to resolve the issue. It isn't a network connectivity issue from what I can tell as I don't lose internet or have any issue access other resources both locally or on the internet.

At first I thought it was a facebook problem, but the issue started appearing in other places (gmail, youtube, etc). I can be writing something in a comment box, word doc, chat window or whatever and if I select some text and hit copy or cut, the entire browser absolutely locks - can't click on anything or do anything - for MINUTES at a time. There's no CPU, disk read/write, or other system usage spike to indicate what's going on - Firefox just stops and is completely unresponsive for a very long time.

This is new as of the past couple weeks, I think? I hit it once and didn't think much of it but now I'm getting hit by it daily just about because I'm more active on social media, email, and other things lately.

wtf? I have not installed any new extensions in a very long time.

Hello,

I've been corresponding with LastPass about this, but they now refer me to Firefox support.

I am using: Windows 11 Pro: Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000 Firefox browser: 101.0.1 (64-bit) LastPass Add-on for Firefox: 4.97.0.2 Phone: Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0 LastPass Authenticator app on phone installed: version 2.7.0

Hello,

Enabling LastPass authenticator/passwordless has worked for my Chrome and Edge browsers on my Windows 11 PC [LastPass Version: 4.97.0]. However, it does NOT work with Firefox, so I need further help.

When I close the Firefox browser [version 101.0.1 (64-bit)]and re-launch it, then click on the LP extension icon [version 4.97.0.2] I first get a LP pop-up requesting “Accept Permissions” (see attached screenshot).

When I click through that with Accept, I get a regular LP login prompt requesting both my email and master password.

After I enter my credentials, THEN I get a Multifactor Authentication pop-up on the PC and the Authenticator [version 2.6.0] app prompts on my phone [Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0]. (see screenshot) When I use the phone to enter Accept and my Authenticator PIN, then the browser extension is logged on as I would expect.

If I leave Firefox open and log out of my LP account then click the browser LP icon to log back in, I get the Use Authenticator button. When I select it, the Authenticator app on the phone pops up and log in is smooth, as I would expect.

However, when I click on the LP icon on the Firefox browser, I get (another) notice that I can activate Passwordless (see screenshot). When I accept that, I have to provide my master password again. Even though I have turned on the Passwordless feature several times, If I close Firefox and re-open it, and then click on the LP icon, it does not invoke the Authenticator. Instead, I have to repeat everything. It seems like closing Firefox does something to delete the Authenticator option saved in LP/Firefox.

In both Chrome and Edge, I have settings to delete browser history when they are closed. This does not seem to affect the Authenticator behavior. However, I have set the same settings in Firefox to delete browser history on close, but the Authenticator behavior is not as expected.

What setting in LP or Firefox can be used to have the Authenticator setting survive the browser being closed? Also, how do I avoid having to go through the Permissions prompt every time I launch Firefox and try to open the LP extension?

Thanks, Dave Hejde (970) 219-8843
