The title of my question is a bit hard to understand. Let me try to explain.

My library gives me electronic access to the Oxford English Dictionary (my favorite dictionary, with all those helpful quotes/example sentences!)

What I should get:

1. Go to http://www.vpl.ca/digital-library/oxford-english-dictionary

2. Click the "Access Now" button (link to https://www.vpl.ca/extDB/login.remoteDB?OxfordEnglishDictionary)

3. I'm taken to a page that says "VPL Electronic Resource Authentication", where I enter my library card number and PIN.

4. I enter my card number and PIN, then press the Authenticate button

5. I'm taken to to a page that says "Your login was successful." I then press the "Continue ➡️"

6. I'm taken to https://www.oed.com/ where i can now happily use the dictionary


What I experience:

1. Go to http://www.vpl.ca/digital-library/oxford-english-dictionary

2. Click the "Access Now" button (link to https://www.vpl.ca/extDB/login.remoteDB?OxfordEnglishDictionary)

3. I'm taken to http://www.vpl.ca/digitallibrary

4. If I go to oed.com directly, it shows that I'm not logged in /authenticated.

I have moved the tabs to the bottom but now the tabs are covering some useful content. Is there a way to pad the content bottom or some other way to move the content up to make way for the tabs? I've tried everything.

Here's my current code:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); 

#main-window:not([inFullscreen]) #content-deck {margin-bottom: 32px !important;}
#main-window[inFullscreen] #content-deck {margin-bottom: 0px !important;}

#TabsToolbar
{
   position: fixed !important;
   bottom: 0px !important;
   width: 100% !important;
}

#tabbrowser-tabs {width: 96% !important;}

#TabsToolbar { background-color: #4d4d4d !important }
#tabbrowser-tabs { background-color: #4d4d4d !important }

The Problem: I recently noticed that decoding youtube videos in 2160p60fps is choppy beyond recognition.

Diagnose: While playing said videos in firefox i was able to observe in the task manager that actually none of my graphics cards video decoding capabilities were used. At lower video qualities/resolutions the hardware accelerated video decoding of the graphics card was also not kicking in, but in these cases my cpu was still able to cope with the decoding load, so I never noticed the missing hardware acceleration. To narrow the origin of problem down I tried watching the same videos in edge, chrome and even downloaded a short 2160p60fps clip to play with VLC and everything worked fine, just not in my favorite browser firefox :(

What i already did trying to solve the problem (in order): -Restart Firefox without addons -Refresh Firefox -Create a new Profile

Additional Info: Nvidia Driver Version 441.20

If there is anymore useful info I'm more than happy to provide it.

Thanks for taking the time reading this an providing help.

I don't normally save and restore sessions, but do have firefox set to restore the previous session in the event of a crash.

Recently, following a power cut, such a session restore occurred, correctly restoring all the pages I had open at the time (not many), and the scroll position within the page.

Since this happened, any page I open on one particular site (https://www.theguardian.com) now always scrolls to the end of the page, and I have to manually scroll back up to the top. Once loaded, you can scroll the page normally, but F5 refresh will reload the page and scroll to the end again. This effect is persistent across restarts, and I've not found a way to get rid of it.

I've tried simulating another crash with that site open, scrolled to the top, and I've tried enabling saving the session on exit and restoring on startup - none of this has changed anything. In both cases it restored the session and scrolled to the end.

Any suggestions as to where this effect might be coming from?

hiya,

I'm visually impaired and make heavy use of reader mode. For the last week or so the max font size that I'm able to get with crt + tops out at a size much smaller than what i'm use to: previously I could fill the page--and with nice text reflow. Presently, the max font size is much small than this. Please advise.

I've lost all bookmarks, logins and saved passwords, add ons and basically everything. I have made sure that all my data is synced and even tested it a couple of times after changing devices and every time it worked perfectly and restored my data. Now, I've just changed devices after a while with no internet, I go to sign in and I forgot my pass so I reset it and signed in successfully but nothing at all is restored not a single thing. I'm devastated, I hope there a solution to this.

I have 2 computers that show up as a single one in the synced tabs list, after cloning the profile from the one to the other

I cloned the my FF profile from a well set-up computer A to a new computer B following the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles . I gave the profile on comp. B a new name.

The operation seems to have been successful, except for the tab syncing feature. I don't see the tabs from both A and B in the synced tabs dialog. Instead, I see tabs open on the one or the other computer, or a combination thereof.

If I had to guess I would assume that each profile has a unique ID, invisible to the user but determinant for distinquishing devices (profiles).

If accurate: how to change that Id?

I was force updated to Firefox 70 and I didn't like the new layout for the new tab page, so I installed the .exe to downgrade to 69.0.3 .

However, when I launched Firefox again, I lost all of my saved data on the browser and it was a fresh profile.

Prior to downgrading, I had saved a copy of the Mozilla Firefox folder that is C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox just in case.

Is there any way I could fix this and revert to the saved settings, extensions, and passwords that I previously had?

Thank you in advance.

Can anyone out there help me, I’ve exported my FireFox Bookmarks onto an external hard drive and then copied them back onto the desktop and from there tried to import them back into FireFox.

All the subfolders have imported back into FireFox no problem, but for some reason it has not done so with any bookmarks which appear under the Other Bookmarks listing, is there something I'm doing wrong? The version of FireFox I’m using is FireFox Quantum 6.9.0.3 (64 bit) with Windows 10.

My add-ons aren't recognizing that updates are available. I have automatic updates enabled. I used the 'check for updates' option but the system responds that no updates were found. For example, Last Pass version is 4.34.0.6 is installed, but version 4.35.1.2 is available. uBlock Origin version 1.22.4 is installed, but version 1.23.0 is available. I have deleted and recreated my Firefox profile a couple of times, but that hasn't corrected the problem.This is an ongoing issue on my work PC. I don't have any issues with this on my home PC.

The Firefox Home page does not properly resize content to fit the window size. I have had this issue for a while on my laptop, but it just started to happen on my desktop also with the 70.0 update. I posted about it on reddit a while back to try and find help, but no one was able to give me any. Here are some screenshots of the issue on mac from that original post https://imgur.com/a/vTlXfmJ I just want to know if there is any solution to this issue or if anyone else is reporting it. I haven't been able to find any other posts about it and got basically no response from the reddit.

Since updating to Firefox 70, the tab bar is shown even if there is only one tab (it just shows the + button then). Previously, the bar was hidden if there was only one tab. This previous behavior may depend on some setting, but I don't remember if I changed any setting for that. Have *no* Add-ons installed that affect tab visibility.

How to restore the old behaviour that tab bar is hidden if there is only one tab?

Sometime recently (as of 11/3/19) Firefox ceased to reliably print entire web pages. Instead it prints the first, last, and sometimes one middle page. The print preview function suffers the same error. Since the problem shows up in print preview I don't believe that it is related to the configuration of a specific printer. It doesn't seem to be a coding error in the web page as other browsers like IE, Chrome, and Opera render the page accurately. Because I don't print pages often, I can't tell with what version the problem showed up.
