(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

Specifically within the Firefox browser, I cannot access Reddit.com or other affiliate links. I am just getting a completely white screen, doesn't even say "Blocked". However I can visit Reddit in other browsers, with or without a VPN, while a VPN doesn't even change the outcome within the Firefox browser.

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

I run firefox from the command line in a terminal, and recently I have been seeing this set of messages in the term when I load various webpages:

Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index2/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/present Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu Sandbox: unexpected multiple open of file /proc/cpuinfo

Mostly, there doesn't seem to be any loss of function related to this message. However, I have one anecdotal example of a forum website I have used in the past freezing on a blank screen at the same time these messages pop up in the term.

I can find no match for this particular message on the entire open internet. There is one near-match on bugzilla bug # Bug 1718493, but that is solved and done.

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

Attempted to login to Canada Revenue Agency and it told me that Java Script had to be activated in the browser. How do I determine if it is activated and how do I activate it if it is not. The strange thing is I was on the site an hour before without any issues so I am at a bit of a loss as to what has happened. It may be an issue with the CRA.

Thanks Doug

Hi, I use Verizon Fios and a Windows 10 PC. Firefox is my default browser. I don't experience any of the problems described below when using Chrome, which I only do now that Firefox is not working optimally.

In many, many years I've never had trouble with Firefox until about a month ago. When I opened the browser, I received messages -- about five times -- that it had crashed. After that, many websites now load very slowly, or not at all. And now, I'm unable to see product images on Amazon.

Would you please help me? I'm 84 and not all that computer savvy and I don't want to delete my browsing history, etc. Many thanks, Valerie

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

When I try to search products on FF I get a black screen. When I try to access my wish list, I get multiple error messages.

I tried Re-installing FF but the same problem persists. I have not tried uninstalling/reinstalling yet.

I did a full virus scan overnight. No problems were found in the scan.

Hi folks, I fired up my laptop tonight and then opened my Firefox browser, only to find that the bookmark toolbar was missing. 'Ah, simple answer,' I thought, 'I must have turned it off. Just move the pointer to the top and right click. The bookmark tab option will be there.'

But no, it isn't. Sure, there's the Bookmark name with a right-pointing arrow. And if I follow that I can see that it says "Bookmark Toolbar > Always show." And although that option has a tick against it, no bookmarks are visible.

So what's happened to them? If I click on the Bookmarks name right at the top and then click 'Manage Bookmarks' I can see them all, so they haven't been deleted, erased or anything - but why can't I see them? By the way, if I click "Never Show" then the space where they should be disappears and if I then click "Always Show" then the space returns but without any bookmarks.

Help please - bookmarks are essential for browsing.
