Hi, I have used Firefox for many, many years and never had an issue till now. And it is only on Facebook., Version 84.0.2 and the one before this one whenever i use facebook and start playing any videos it slows down and lags. I try the same in Chrome and no issue. What did Firefox do just recently to Facebook's website or maybe their security or? Not sure but it is almost making me leave for Chrome.

Hello, I update Wordpress pages on downtownlanguages.org. The past couple of days, the site's top menu bar covers up the page headings on all the pages and does not scroll with the rest of the page. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or a Wordpress problem. The pages display correctly in MS Edge and on my iPad. To my knowledge, I've done nothing in WordPress to cause this to happen. I have refreshed Firefox and cleared startup cache but it did not resolve the problem. Please help. Thank you! See https://downtownlanguage.org/donate for an example.

I have always been able to use Firefox as the default browser when launching hyperlinks from MS Office products. Last week, i received notice that FLASH is no longer supported and should be removed.

I did this.

Now - when i have a hyperlink in ANY MS product - it does not launch. When i change default browser to MS Edge - they work

How do i get this back to working in Firefox

For about a week now a few websites are taking a long time to load on my 4 PCs (examples: ebay.com, walmart.com, pch.com). If I click the link on the search page it takes almost 30 sec to load, right click and open in a new tab same time, and open a new tab and type or paste address the same amount of time. Most other website open almost immediately.

The issue does not resolve in safe-mode or if I manually disable add-ons. I'm using the default theme.

All websites load without issue on Chrome and Edge.

When Print Preview is selected, the Bookmarks are always scrolled to the top of the listing. This is very inconvenient when you want to go back to where you were when you have thousands of Bookmarks. I would like to have Firefox fixed so it doesn't do this.

So, I created a new profile with about:profiles. Then the new profile was selected as default (I do not know why, who invented this retarded idea.) I then opened firefox with the new profile just to see what it uses (I just wanted to browse a site to see if it's working properly without the addons). Afterwards, I set my old (with all the settings, addons, bookmarks) as default and deleted the new created profile. And wow look at that, everything is gone. Even under the "profiles" folder under %Roaming% there are no files within the "bookmarks" folder. Can someone tell me what the stupid shit is!?

I am trying to implement a policies.json file in 32-bit Firefox 78.6.1 ESR on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. With Firefox not running, I have created a distribution folder as follows:

C:\Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\distribution

The folder contains a policies.json file with the following script:

{

 "policies": {
 "DisableAppUpdate": true
 }

}

There are no Registry settings concerning this on my computer. Although the computer is joined to a domain, there are no Firefox GPOs in place.

When I run Firefox I do not get any error messages. about:support indicates that the Enterprise policies are active. about:policies only lists a certificate policy; DisableAppUpdate does not appear there. in the Options menu I see "Your browser is being managed by your organization" at the top, but in the Firefox Updates section I still have the two items:

Automatically install updates (recommended) Check for updates but let you choose to install them

The second option is checked.

After creating the policies.json file I expected to see nothing in the Firefox Updates section except a message stating updates have been disabled, and I expected to see DisableAppUpdates listed in about:policies.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

Hi all,


I've got an offline 2008R2 workstation with Firefox 65.0.2 installed, just recently it will only display a blank page. Clicking options does nothing as does navigating to about:config, it just sits on the blank page and doesn't react.

I've tried to reinstall the current version, the latest stable and the latest ESR with no change. I made sure to delete the following each time: C:\Program Files (x86)\*mozilla* C:\Program Files\*mozilla* C:\ProgramData\Mozilla C:\Users\Me\AppData\*\Mozilla Computer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\*mozilla*

Nobody knows of any recent changes to the workstation I've turned off AV Windows logs don't show anything Starting FF in safe mode does the exact same thing

Additionally I'm not allowed to take any screenshots or anything off it. :(

I highly appreciate any advice anyone has!

I'm using Outlook in my iMac Pro running Big Sur 11.1, and when I click a link in an email, two FF windows open, one with my default homepage and the other from the link.

This only happens when FF isn't already open.

I've adjusted the settings to no avail, and then reset FF but the problem remains.

It doesn't do this with other browsers when set as the default, just FF.

I see other posts relating to this issue, but cannot find the solution - if there is one?

Thank you.

Hello,

After the latest updates, whenever I attempt to navigate to someone's instagram account from a hyperlink or even typing it directly into the browser bar, I get the picture below 9 out of 10 times. I imagine it has something to do with cookies and how Firefox has changed their default settings or something, but I'd rather not have to delete my browing history, data and specific Instagram cookies every time I want to search instagram pages. Is this happening to anyone else?
