I don't like the megabar, and I have looked around to see if there are any fixes for the most recent Firefox 77 update that forces that user to have it (like at least one other update, it just assumes that people like it). I have tried using the userChrome.css file, but that didn't work. I have also tried going into about:config, which also didn't work. Is there any possible way to say 'I never want to see this megabar again in my life'? Or a way to tell the devs that it should NOT be a default option on new updates? Or a way to turn it off that will always be around, unlike the about:config deal? Any help would be great. I attached an image of the megabar.

YouTube studio features; adding subtitles and blurring does not work in firefox. While uploading subtitles, I select the subtitle from the computer, but when I say upload, it does not. The same screen remains. The problem with blurring is that the selection tool does not appear when the blurring screen is opened. These features work in chrome

FF didn't used to be so slow. It now get really slow and uses a lot of RAM to the extend that my disk is full and I have to shutdown FF.

I do have like 30 tabs open, with one or two Slack-like web apps. However, I'm not using them all at the same time. In the first couple of quantum releases it didn't used to be this slow, never mind pre-quantum performance. Oh and I'm not gonna compare to Chrome or Chromium.

Any help with this? Is it the extensions causing it?

  • Also I never found a proper replacement to legacy Tab Session Manager (the quantum one is no where near as good).

Hi

I am using Firefox on Mac OS Sierra and I manage a number of websites using Joomla. I've had a problem for at least a year whereby Joomla admin keeps on quitting when I'm navigating around the system in Firefox.

I finally gave up using Firefox for this purpose and I always use Google Chrome instead, and I've never had this problem occur in Chrome. I thought it might be related to my specific install, but on a couple of occasions when I've tried to use it on my laptop, which has a pretty pristine installation of FF, the same thing has happened.

However more problems seem to be surfacing over time, principally: 1. I am frequently unable to click a link on a web page until I refresh the page 2. Problems completing online forms. For example I just tried to make a payment transfer in Paypal but was unable to type in the amount. When I logged in with Chrome instead, it worked fine.

Firefox has been my preferred browser for a very long time and I'd like to continue using it as my main browser, but unless I can eliminate these sorts of problems.

I wonder if anyone has experienced similar problems and if they have found a solution to them?

Many thanks Jennie

Hi,

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity. Flashing and certain animations can screw with my brain and leave me with awful migraines afterwards.

I have been using userContent.css to try to block a lot of the animation online, such as zoom on mouseover and jump on mouseover, but it's stopped blocking that. Other user css is still switching fonts, though. How can I figure out what has changed and what could fix the code?

Relevant section of my usercontent.css:

/* block some transitions */

  • {transition-duration:1ms !important; animation-duration: 1ms !important}

@-moz-document [various other domains], domain("threadreaderapp.com"), [various other domains] {

  • { transform: none !important; }
  • { -moz-transform: none !important; }
  • { -webkit-transform: none !important; }
  • { animation: none !important; }
  • { transition: none !important; }
  • {-moz-transition: none !important; }
  • {-webkit-transition: none !important; }
    hover { transform: none !important; }
  • { background-image: none ! important }

body {

 -webkit-transition-property: none!important;
 transition-property: none!important;
 -webkit-animation: none!important;
 animation: none!important;

}}

since update I can't open you tube videos, site is working & can search get previews but when click to open it don't play only try to load & keeps spinning circle on black background. Cleared cache & cookies, deleted temp files, refresh Firefox but no help. Not using any add-on other than anti virus (updated), no plug-in used. No issue with other sites only concern is you tube video not playing. However, in private window video is playing without any problem. Other browser working fine, facing this issue after latest update - 77.0.1 (64-bit). No issue before update.

My health provider uses doxy.me for telehealth. Whenever we set up a session using Firefox on my laptop my healthcare provider can't see me on his end. I used doxy.me troubleshooter and it gets stuck at "loading video stream". Using the same laptop but instead using Microsoft Edge and the video works fine. I have used Firefox for other web conferences using Zoom and that works fine. Any reason why this is happening?

The position of the Firefox window is not restored correctly after clicking maximize then unmaximize (aka restore).

This is not a new problem. I think has always occurred on this machine (about a year old, Linux, Mint 19, Cinnamon).

It only happens if the window is touching the top edge (or corner) of the desktop. The unmaximized window is shifted down and to the right of the original position.

The window features (buttons, menus, etc) seem to return to their original positions, but the displayed window is shifted. For example, if I try to click the maximize button again, the mouse pointer needs to be above and left of the visible button.

I have turned off Linux desktop features, including window tiling and snapping, edge resistance, and some others, but I see no change. I also tried the monitor resolution and different desktop themes.

If this is not a bug, I am hoping I can disable something so that the window returns to its original position after it is unmaximized. For example, the height of the top border decreases when the window is maximized and increases when unmaximized, so if this is causing the issue, I am happy to disable it.

In the attached images, the top right of the image is the top right of the desktop. The first image shows Firefox in the top right corner before maximizing the window, and the second image shows the shifted position after unmaximizing the window. The expected behavior is for the window to return to the original position as shown in the first image.

Thanks for any help.

Hi: so, for the last couple weeks or so, I've been unable to login to Facebook. I think this may have occurred after updating to the then-latest version of Firefox, but I can't be sure of that. When I try to log in, I get this message:


The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.facebook.com.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.


I've tried clearing Facebook's cookies, clearing all cookies/cache data, and then refreshing Firefox. None of this has helped. (Meanwhile, Facebook sends me a "Is this you?" e-mail every time I try to log in...) Currently using Windows 10, and the latest version of Firefox.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Hi everyone, sorry but I couldn't find this question answered anywhere else.

I am using a Surface Book 2, and when I am using it in tablet mode and I click a text field in firefox, the virtual keyboard pops up, but then is immediately pushed away, except for very rare occasions, where the firefox window gets stuck in the aspect ratio as shown in the attached photo, "making room" for the keyboard ^^
