On some webpage, I experience delay response when I trying to search sometime. For example, in Google homepage after typing something or even gibberish the page froze and not responding for about 10 second but the browser is still functioning (meaning I can still move other tabs or open option). Once that 10s delay is over, it responded with my result. And something when I when to search back something again(not in the homepage), more of the time is response back fast like 0.2s but other time the same 10s delay. This problem also happens in some other website but not all in their search bar. I have try in safe mode. disable all my extension, reinstall Mozilla Firefox, check any windows update and such. Also other browser does not have this problem such as chrome and brave. If this problem still persisting then I would such to other browser but prefer not to as I quite fond of Firefox. Thanks for your help in advance.

I know the answer to this is probably going to be along the lines of this is not possible, but I thought I'd ask anyway since none of the information is entirely clear. Or answers my exact question.

I have one desktop install of firefox and I have two android ones. I have all three synced to one firefox account, so it's easy to grab links I saved while wiki diving on something. While this works perfectly for the desktop side of things, the mobile side is where the issue arises.

Currently all my bookmarks from both mobile firefox accounts are merged into one long set, regardless of device. While the desktop ones have their own folder. Is there a way to keep the bookmarks from each device in their own separate folder? Like say instead of having one big mobile bookmarks folder, having one named DeviceX, and the other DeviceY?

It's still semi functional on desktop where I have more screen real estate and have to deliberately go to the mobile bookmarks folder, but on the phones it can be confusing when a set of bookmarks from device 1 mixes randomly into those of device 2. As it can become a lot harder to keep track of things.

Now I know one can turn off syncing of bookmarks. This is not what I'm looking for as I do still want to be able to share them between all three devices. Just have them more organised.

I also know one can make different accounts for say work or personal, but again I want them all to sync, just not mix them into one list.

So in short is there a way to be able to have two android devices into a threeway sync and keep the bookmarks separate? Or is my only option the round abound way of making subfolders and hope I remember to save in those?

Thanks either way.

In this website, written in markdown if I'm getting this right, the equations are not displaying in my browser.

My browser is displaying corretly all the examples in the other questions on math rendering, and also in similar books (here, here).

I've deleted cookies and cache, disabled extentions/adblocker, tried safe mode, without any change.

I have the same problem with all Edge and Chrome too and even on another computer. I thought the problem was in the website but the equations are rendering fine when I test them on https://www.browserling.com/.

Thanks in advance for any help :D

When I scan the QR code shown on my computer with my phone and press the sync buttons, I get a message on my phone to; "Open the authentication app and enter the security code it provides."

I have no idea what this app is or where to find it to open it. Is it on my phone or my computer? Why can't you just show the code on my computer sync screen?

And, your help pages just repeat the same instruction verbiage as the sync app on my phone. No additional help at all!

Hello, Firefox friends!

I'm having some issues with Firefox on my Ubuntu system and I'm really hoping someone can help me fix them.

   Problem with Downloads: When I try to download something and click on a link, a new tab opens. But then it immediately closes and nothing downloads.
   Button Issues: Some buttons within Firefox just don't seem to work.

I've tried a few things already:

   Checked for Firefox and Ubuntu updates
   Ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode
   No antivirus because I'm on Ubuntu

If anyone has faced similar issues or knows how to fix this, please help!

Thank you so much!

I imported bookmarks from Chrome. I used it for a long time, so I've got 600-some-odd bookmarks in a lot of subfolders. Nested folders are the only way I find what I need.

I followed this advice https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1366211 - I bookmarked the page. - I "edit bookmark," highlighting the parent folder that's visible on the bookmarks bar. - I click the right-most down arrow. That displays only directories visible on the bookmarks tool bar. - The right-most arrow operates as a toggle between showing the desired parent directory only all of the parent directories visible on the bookmarks tool bar.

In case it matters, I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox this week, so it's up to date.

Several times over the past couple weeks, I click on a Google search result, look at the page, decide it's not exactly what I'm looking for and go to hit Back. Except it's grayed out! I click and hold on the back button and no history pops up!

Even stranger, when I go to History, the search is there! It's like the link not only opened in a new page, but closed the old one!! Is this Firefox doing this to me, or Google's nasty tracking links? Am I the only one?

Hi,

I was a former IT person for decades and used Firefox because I love it. But lately, it isn't usable for me. Seemingly happened out of nowhere within the past few weeks.

I tried all the troubleshooting steps in the guides on your support forum, but nothing worked. So I tried the following:

1. Uninstalled Firefox using Windows Uninstaller 2. Deleted every single Mozilla folder from within the user profile to the program files folders, local roaming folders, etc. - EVERYTHING. 3. Went into the Windows Registry and also deleted Mozilla folders within the local machine and current user folders. 4. Rebooted computer 5. Went to Getfirefox.com and reinstalled Firefox. 6. Logged into a brand spanking new Firefox installation

Still SLOW as molasses. Frustrating. I can't work. It is literally 4x slower than any other browser now. I use Firefox for 90% of my web stuff, the other browsers 10% of the time for testing. But as it goes now, I cannot use Firefox anymore after decades of using it.

Anything else I can try? Maybe I missed something when I scrubbed it and reinstalled? Why suddenly is it this slow? Any ideas?

I will try next to log into a different Windows profile I guess and see if that improves it. Maybe my Windows profile is jacked up, although, I thought removing all Mozilla folders from within my Windows profile would be enough, so I am not so sure that will fix it. I will try though.

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

I have a slight problem. I'm currently using Firefox 116.0.3 and it seems that it can't update. The automatic updating will run, and then it will fail (this is all the time when using Firefox). It will recommend me to download the newest version from the website, but then the CDN will and I will be presented with the "connection was reset" error. This happens both on my Windows 10 and Windows 11 machines. Both are running Firefox 116.0.3.

Funnily enough I tried to see if I could download the newest version on Edge (Chromium), which it could but the version I got from the website was the same version I have now. I wonder if this is something to do with my region as I'm based in China and I'm aware that some software can have...problems.

Also, when trying to download version 122.0, it is fantastically slow and will often fail to complete.

Is there anything that could be suggested as I really don't want to use Edge.
