Made several posts about floating videos and never one answer over the course of two years that I can recall. One of the biggest user problems with FF and we get -- nothing. If the developers are incapable of solving this go ahead and tell us ! We can look for other browser options. I have researched everything to do with the matter and the topic just round and round and round in circles. Dozens claim to have the answer but they are all full of hooey. Simple question -- time to start looking for options other than FF ?

In recent times, after I've been browsing for about 20 or 30 minutes, Firefox becomes very very slow to respond. Simultaneously it coincides with a similar slowdown over the entire computer - in finder and with other open programs. If I close Firefox (which takes several minutes to complete) the slowness of finder and the open programs disappears. The slowness never happens unless Firefox is open. I've tried Chrome and haven't had the same issue.

What might be causing this delayed slowness and how do I solve it?

Hi everyone,

I do need help on the following issue: I'm logged in my mailbox with Firefox browser. The password is saved and available in the browser settings. BUT. If I try to enter it and log in from another device, the mail service says the password is wrong. I can't understand how it is possible. The browser should use one of the saved passwords for the authorization, right? Why doesn't it work outside this very browser?

MAYBE one day I changed the password in the mail service, logged in, BUT didn't refresh it in the browser settings? May the browser use some cookies, service files or something like that for authorization despite unactual password saved? If yes, then how is it possible to extract the true password out of those files?

I turned to the mail service support, but they can't help me, because I didn't enter my real name, phone number or something during registration that could help to check my identity. So the only opportunity to save my mail is to use the browser files somehow. I'm going to reinstall Windows and I will loose access to my mail forever in this case that would be very very bad.. ((( Please, help!

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505

Hi,

I'd like to use keyboard media keys (play/pause, prev, next) to control Spotify web player and Youtube but they don't work. The option is enabled. I'm using Firefox 88.0 on Windows 8.1, so according to this article it should be supported. The keys work on other apps. I've tried in troubleshooting mode as well, no luck. Any ideas?

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

I've been a long time Firefox user since around 2005 and have always enjoyed Firefox until now. This issue has been ongoing for over a year though. I never would have thought that a simple task as entering a web address in the address bar and hitting enter would become so difficult, though for a while now this seems to be the case and to the point to where I'm considering not bothering with the Firefox browser anymore. I do enjoy where Firefox is now in current development and the way it looks as well the great performance. However, when basic functionality such as typing in a web address and hitting enter becomes difficult all the aforementioned positives become less and less relevant. It seemed to all start when development came to redesign the appearance of the UI, not sure what version. Basically, what I come to experience now roughly 90 percent of the time I type a web address in the address bar and hit enter is the browser does nothing. Sometimes it takes 5 to 6 tries with having to put the mouse courser back into the address bar and hitting enter multiple times before the browser decides it want's to go the website. Same issue occurs when opening a bookmark in another tab, switch to the tab and the site isn't loaded, have to hit enter multiple times before the web address will begin to load. Seems also that any setting regarding tabs background loading isn't present anymore in the settings either. Same issue will occur when selecting a favorite that comes up while typing in the address bar.

Recently I had reinstalled my entire operating system and was hopeful that this issue would be resolved by doing so with a fresh install of Firefox too, though the issue is still present.

I have no add-ons or themes that modify the address bar, nor any search add-ons. In fact, this issue occurs with no add-ons installed at all. The only thing I can think currently is that it is an issue and or bug of some kind within the search and or address bar settings current design.

My settings here are attached as images.

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

Hello,

I recently was forced to change the address of my blog from "universalism.com.au" to "universalism-au.com" (due to silly legal requirements introduced a few months back about requiring an ABN if you want to use the .au suffix).

"universalism.com.au" is now a dead link, but when I start typing "uni..." in the address bar, it always autocompletes to this old and depreciated url rather than my new one. I would like to be able to type "uni..." and have it autocomplete to the new address, "universalism-au.com"

I have cleared what seems relevant from my browsing history, but no luck. Is this perhaps being caused by my default search engine (duckduckgo) recommending the wrong address?

I have attached a screenshot if this helps.

Over the last couple of days we are seeing instances of Firefox just disappearing from Windows 10 and just today from a Windows 7 pc. When I say disappears, the desktop shortcut becomes dead, click on it and a prompt to search for firefox.exe comes up. Checking Add / Remove programs shows Firefox to be installed. Checking C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox reveals empty folders with the exception of a couple of text files. Trying to reinstall the Firefox app, we are prompted with a message that Firefox.exe can't be found, and there is a button to browse for it. The only solution we have found for this is to copy the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder from a working pc, and we just received a call from a user we did this for telling us that it is gone again. Any ideas?

Thanks.....

We have checked for viruses.

Per title and attached image.

Why do I no longer have the option to view image in the same tab any more? I should not need a browser extension to have brought it back. This new feature is, frankly, rather annoying and I would like to have the option to have it back. Please don't tell me to modify userChrome.css because that doesn't seem to do anything anymore. I have tried on numerous occasions to use it to get rid of the obnoxious Email Image by following markup examples given on numerous forums, so I don't trust it to bring back a feature unjustly stripped from me.

Or, failing that, tell me how to get that context to open in the background. I have that option set for links, and am rather unhappy that it is ignored on this new image context and bookmarks to a lesser extent.

It has been a day since updating to this new version, and I hate it already.

Thank you for explaining to me precisely and step by step, as to a particularly bad person who does not understand anything at all. Why, when things are going well, does it take someone to change them, especially without asking users !!!

Greetings...

As I visit specific websites and they attempt to install one or more cookies in my Firefox browser, I would like to be able to enable them for the then-current session only, so that they are automatically deleted when I close my Firefox browser.

While I could configure my Firefox browser to delete all cookies and site data when I close my Firefox browser, I do not want to delete all cookies, only those cookies that I have specificaly enabled for the then-current session only.

Is there any way that I can accomplish this in my Firefox browser? Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to do this based on my research to date.

Thank you for your attention!
