Hey!

I'm working on a translation management software called Plunet.

There are text boxes within Plunet where the spell checker does work, and others in which the spell checker is not even an option. It doesn't recognize misspelled words by underlining them in red, and when I right-click on words, the only option available is "Link". (See screenshot.) Any ideas?

Thanks!

When i open a picture from a page, and want to save it on my computer, I right click on the picture to save it. At that very same second, Firefox freeze and I need to open the activity manager to close it.

What also confuse me there, when I find Firefox, there is a number behind the name, like: Firefox(7) Does it mean that 7 Firefox is opened in the background?

What is the problem?

To save a picture now, I need to use Edge.

On my personal laptop, that setting is already enabled. But I never see any stories recommended by pocket when I open a new tab. What can I do about this?

i need to know how to fix this The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (minecraft) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

When is Firefox going to solve the "Text in certain web pages became invisible"? I have a long list of webpages that I have been collecting for a couple of years that have text that is invisible unless one uses Ctl-A to select all the text on the page. It's probably over 20 items long. The last one I found is unfortunately all the pages of an ebook that I have to read online using the publisher's ebook app that is not downloadable. It's a medical book with a lot of illustrations and charts. I gave up and opened the "hated" MS browser Edge.

I have the latest version of Firefox--"117.0 (64-bit)".

Autoplay media blocking does not work. I've tried to block autoplay on sites settings and also done this about:config fix without results.

   media.autoplay.default = 5 [0:allow;1:blockAudible;2:Prompt;5:blockAll]
   media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2
   media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false
   media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true '

Videos still start playing in some websites. I've noticed that when reloading the page, then autoplay blocking works.

Example: https://www.iltalehti.fi/formulat/a/35242327-7699-45a2-a1b5-75ff330a9d13 When i go to page first time, it shows on the left of address bar, that autoplay function is not even enabled (no autoplay block icon). When i reload/refresh the page, then it shows that autoplay is disabled and autoplay block is working properly (icon appears).

So it's only issue when visiting the page first time, if page is refreshed, no issues.

Windows appear in Window menu but are otherwise invisible (Mac)

I have the same issue that was reported here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1358340 and here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1409149

After a Firefox restart for a version upgrade, there are 8 windows listed in the Windows menu, but only 4 are visible. Trying to select one of the invisible windows from the window menu, or cycling through open windows with cmd-` displays nothing. I tried checking other desktops to see if the windows had landed there, but they're not. The missing windows don't show up in Mission Control.

I also tried exiting FIrefox, deleting the xulstore.json file, and restarting. This had no effect.

I'm on a 2021 M1 Max MacBook Pro Firefox 117.0.1 Mac OS 13.5.2 (22G91)

Any ideas? This is a weird one.

Thanks!

I use Firefox on a PC to access Facebook (website, not app). This week the Messenger/Chat feature stopped working. I click the icon and it opens but nothing appears in the box, it just hangs. There is an option to open in its own window, but that also is blank - no past messages, no contact names, no ability to start new message. When I log onto Facebook in Edge, Messenger works fine in Facebook.

I've tried everything I found on the internet for this issue - updated and refreshed Firefox, cleared history/cache/cookies/site data, uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger, refreshed Facebook to initial settings, used Firefox in troubleshooting mode, reset everything, turned off browser, turned off my computer, used shift key to reload tab - nothing has worked. There are some instructions about stuck cookies, but I didn't understand them so I didn't try that one thing. I've gone into every menu I can find to try to figure out this issue, which isn't the end of the world, but I would appreciate some other ideas for what is suddenly causing this. Because now I have to redo all of my settings and preferences and logins and the problem still isn't fixed.

I started getting screen flashes and then identifying pop up windows that go to adform dot com addresses, that are blocked on my computer so nothing other than a error shows up. Its annoying and random. I have checked security page and it says Block pop-up windows and this is blocked. Two exemptions are there which are acceptable. I have run virus checks on Bitdefender and Malwarebytes (Latest versions update) nothing is reported. - What is causing this and how do I stop it? After opening up the hidden window that flashes it tries different pages all fail then eventually the pop up window closes on its own.

Using latest version of Firefox browser 117.0.1 (64 bit) Don't get the pop ups on Google Chrome.

There is a problem printing from OpenStreetMap when using Firefox - basically, you can't! I gather this has been a problem before. An archived post on the same subject (2021) informs that the problem is fixed in Version 91.xx. Well. I'm afraid it's back again in Version 117 (and perhaps earlier).

My M-1 MacBook Pro has been running warm since I installed Firefox 117.0 (64-bit).

EtreCheck Pro reports that "plug-in container.app" is a runaway process.

When I show package contents for Firefox, I can see "plug-in container.app" in the MacOS folder.

Will there be an update soon to correct this problem? Firefox is my primary browser. I work in the SaaS industry and have to run a browser 24/7.

ETA: This is the second version of Firefox with which I have had this problem recently. I posted on 08-27-2023 about the same problem with v116.0.3. At that time, I was able to downgrade to 116.0.2, which solved my problem. However, because of "downgrade protection," I no longer can roll back to 116.0.2.

After a recent update, I tried to use the Task Manager to view my running extensions and see WHICH extension was using a lot of memory.

I noticed that I was persistently redirected to "about:processes" instead.

Upon doing some research, I found this... https://techdows.com/2023/07/firefox-removes-about-performance-in-favor-about-processes.html https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1836191

I cannot believe this.

Why remove an incredibly useful tool, just because you feel like the other one is "better?"

about:processes is good, but gives NO option to view individual memory or CPU usage per each INDIVIDUAL extension.

Either bring the old Task Manager back, or combine both of their functionality into one page.

This is absolutely ridiculous.

I will be reverting back to the previous version.

I cannot understand why devs feel the need to completely cut and kill perfectly useful and harmless tools. This is very frustrating.

With a recent update of Firefox Developer Edition to version 117.0b9 i keep getting extremely annoying popups on all sites, asking me if I want to translate stuff.

I don't want to store unnecessary settings in my browser, related to exceptions to websites/languages that I want vs. does not want to translate.

I want to completely disable translations, globally. Forever. Two questions:

- Why there is no "disable translations globally" checkbox in the newly added popup? - Is there an about:config hack to do disable translations globally, for all languages, for all websites, and forever?

thanks in advance

I am using an extension that automatically deletes cookies on Firefox startup. But when I start firefox, I am getting sites listed showing they have one or more cookies but are using no storage. Another Firefox extension indicates there are no cookies from the sites that "Manage Cookies and Site Data" says do have cookies.

Is this a bug in Firefox, a bug in the extension, or a misunderstanding on my part?
