When I m using google doc or sheet to edit a document from google drive, I notice that my cursor will freeze for 5-10 sec from time to time. No issues with chrome on the same documents. I never had this problem until the firefox updates in the past few months. I have tried the usual steps such as disabling all plugins, start firefox in safemode but nothing works. The problem is consistent across all documents, even for new documents. Does anyone know of a workaround?

Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit) for Ubuntu

When I click on the chat icon in the old Reddit, it doesn't load. It loads fine on the Redesign. It works fine on both old Reddit and Redesign on Chrome, and another Reddit user has confirmed the same experience.

I see this version was updated on June 3, 2020, and while I don't use chat very often, I know it has been only recently unresponsive. Problem is, I use old Reddit almost exclusively when I'm actually using Reddit because I prefer the way it runs.

My computer goes into sleep mode after inactivity. When I wake up my computer, if Firefox was left open and minimized, I can't click on it for one minute to bring it back up. A dinging sound happens. All other minimized windows can be maximized without issues. This is on a brand new HP PC running Windows10.

When I try to open a local file using file:///Users/myuser/Documents/... , I get "Access to the file was denied". I'm on macOS 10.15.5. GetInfo on the file shows that I have read and write access. Firefox version is 77.0.1. I can't recall whether I gave Firefox permission to access my Documents folder when I first ran it on macOS 10.15. If I didn't, I don't know how to now give it access.

IMac 2010 Sierra & Macbook Pro Catalina

Hi, I have been dialoguing with Microsoft over the random behaviour of Outlook when I click on a message (or the command 'Open the message in a new window'). The window always opens but the message is not always displayed- there is no pattern in this behaviour.

See enclosed screen captures.

This problem occurs on my two machines (see above). I also have Safari and this problem does not occur with this browser.

Microsoft thinks it's a Firefox problem ....il s'agit d'un problème spécifique au navigateur...."

Do you have any ideas?

Do you want a copy of my exchange with Microsoft?

Many thanks for your answers

Best regards Jeremy Lees

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

With love and Thanks

I find myself facing a real dillema, I prefer to use Firefox for most things however, due to the fact that Firefox does not support H.265 and has instead opted to only support AVI video I cannot use it to manage the massive fleet of Security Cameras I manage. I am stuck using IE or Edge both of which are garbage. Along with that Chrome also has decided to only support AVI so that is worthless as well. In our modern era of technology I find it morally repugnant that a company like Firefox would turn their back on their loyal users. Could someone please explain to why Firefox cannot even implement an add-on that would allow use of the built in hardware decoder if supported on your computer like IE/Edge are capable of doing? I just don't understand why Firefox insists on copying Chrome rather than being their own independent company, especially when Chrome has worked their way into almost a monopoly status, and even if Chrome is not a monopoly every other browser now seems to just be a spin off of Chrome. I would imagine that Firefox would want to support as much as possible and not dictate to the world like Google has decided to do. Really starting to lose faith in Firefox's ability to be their own company.
