I just installed the latest v90 upgrade. I get at least 5 sometimes as many as 7 instances of Firefox running simultaneously. Look at my screen shot of the Task Manager...Holy Sh*t! I attempted to downgrade back to v89, but Mozilla has made this option unbearable ...have to recreate your profile, all your passwords, cookies and bookmarks, an incredible hassle. Stuff like this just shouldn't happen.

Definitely NOT a well-thought out release.

Guess I'll be migrating to Chrome sooner than I thought!?

Clicking on the Comments section in any ZDNet article (https://www.zdnet.com/article/) gets no response at all. The Comments section doesn't open, I'm not prompted to log in -- nothing. The cursor does change from the default arrow to a hand with pointed finger, as usual, and the Comments bar color flashes as it should when I click on it -- but that's the limit of interaction. I've tested the link with Chrome and Bing and the function still works there, but not in Firefox, and apparently hasn't since about the 26th of July. What's going on, and how can this problem be addressed?

Добрый день!являюсь It специалистом отдела ГАУ МФЦ Оренбургской области, Оренбургского района.На рабочих местах наших сотрудники пользуются браузером Firefox(всегда с актуальными обновлениями).Сложилась такая ситуация , что у нас заработал новый ресурс электронной очереди,и вся проблема в том что вкладки этой очереди при простое разрывают соединение,и приходится обновлять страницы,Иногда даже это не помогает приходится ПК перезагружать.У коллег выяснил ,что в браузере Chrome данная проблема решается отключением автоматического разрывания, для это нужно перейти по ссылке chrome://flags/#intensive-wake-up-throttling

Скажите пожалуйста как по аналогии с chrome можно отключить автоматическое разрывание в Firefox?

Several days ago, Firefox started giving me what seem to be mobile versions of some sites (mostly Google Drive and Docs) instead of the desktop layouts I want. (It's URL comes up with "mobile" even when I type in the hard way.) The problem does not affect all sites, but it does mess up several daily. I did not deliberately change my preferences or otherwise alter Firefox.

I have tried bringing Firefox up in safe mode and even removing it and downloading it again. No change.

i also "reset the default user agent on Firefox" per this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1304470

Help would be much appreciated. I like Firefox much better than the alternatives, but if this doesn't get fixed I will have to give up on it.

Many thanks.

Hey! I was wondering how the bookmark sync works like when I set it up; I have everything synced across my devices apart from bookmarks, because I was a bit afraid of this step. I do have important bookmarks on my laptop, more dedicated to work, and other important bookmarks on my PC, more about private life. If I select sync now, will some of the bookmarks be deleted and overwritten? How can I choose which bookmarks will have the priority or what to pick? (I have multiple folders with many dozens of bookmarks in each, so it's a complex system and nothing I would easily recreate) I would greatly appreciate your help! <3 Thanks

I'm using Firefox 76 packaged with fedora 30 but it wont display a video (weirdly youtube does work). I'm getting the message: "this content requires adobe flash or HTML5 video support..." I don't want to install flash because I've seen some content somewhere about security concerns. I looked for an extension or add-on but none of them seem to be Mozilla approved and most of them don't seem to address this issue anyway. I can't find a setting to fix this in Firefox. I've seen an archived thread about this problem suggesting maybe some linux library issue, but it contained no solution. Maybe I'm missing something fundamental but it's 2021 now and I'd like my Firefox to support a bit of video here and there other than youtube. Has anyone got a solution?

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

Hi all,

I use Firefox. On https://www.archivesspace-pi.nl/repositories/11/archival_objects/42349 we want to show the pdf in the browser but, unfortunately, this doesn't work (the downloading of the pdf functions well, by the way). Trying to solve the problem I did download the PDF-reader, but it still does'nt work. (In Chrome and Edge the showing of pdf's is no problem). What do I have to do?

Thanks for the help/advice!
