The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

The thumbnails on the Firefox page used to take me to the thumbnail home page. Recently this became inconsistent, now the thumbnails try to take me to their home page but the process stops. I have already refreshed Firefox and that did not help. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The thumbnails come up but their functionality is still broken. How do I fix this problem?

Hi Firefox support

I am using Nuance Dragon Professional and trying to install the Dragon extension into Firefox. This is because I am disabled and my hands do not work well See this link https://dnsriacontent.nuance.com/13/setup/ffinstall.html?lang=ENX&browser=firefox

When I hit the install the extension button on the screen nothing happens

I did check to see if this extension was in the Mozilla Firefox extension library and no success

I can make this work with Google Chrome but I would prefer to stick with Firefox Chris Gullett - cg@printstar.biz

I recently had to reinstall firefox due to a few issues. Before the reinstall, when I opened a new tab it would open as my home page. After I reinstalled it, I was able to set up my homepage URL but there is no option for new tabs to open wth the same page. The only options for new tabs are blank page or the default firefox homepage. This was never an issue before the reinstall.

How do I fix this? Has the option been moved somewhere else?

Downloading with Firefox stops repeatedly and is very annoying.

Sometimes first get the following message that Firefox "..nloads\CZ5EEAZM.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of the server. " (see sattach creenshot)


After pressing repeat too many times, the file will finally be downloaded. Sometimes it doesn't work and Firefox crashes.

Question, who recognizes the problem and more importantly how do I solve it?

Hi I am running Firefox 103 on my lenovo thinkpad T570 running windows 10. Streaming any video (e.g. BBC iPlayer or GCN+ or any source I have tried) Video very choppy, freezes for several seconds while audio continues as normal. this is essentially unusable. Task manager shows firefox running at 70% or more I have tried all the power management settings and that makes no difference. The Nvidia Gforce940 appears not to be used at all. All my drivers are up to date I have tried firefox troubleshoot mode, which makes no difference full screen mode or not makes no difference (its a 4k screen so I wondered if it was doing some kind of upscaling) makes no difference whether I run on external monitor or internal. Also makes no difference whether the laptop is connected to my thunderbolt dock or not. I can run the same content side by side in Chrome. Chrome displays the video smoothly with no glitches at all and consumes around 16% CPU (still no Nvidia GPU utilisation)

This problem does not happen on my other PC, a 5 year old Intel NUC, with i5 cpu, also running win 10 connected to my TV.

If i can't fix this I will have to very reluctantly revert to Chrome for video streaming I havent worked uot how to obtain the troubleshooting info to share but happy to do this if necessary

many thanks John

I go to Yahoo.com for email several times daily. I rarely go to Youtube.com .

I believe the order that url suggestions (and autocomplete) come up has changed in one of Firefox's updates and now, as soon as I type the "y", Firefox suggests Youtube.com . I go to Yahoo.com a hundred times for any one time I might visit Youtube and Yahoo would come first alphabetically so I would assume it would "suggest" Yahoo before Youtube.

My guess is that Firefox decides on which site is more popular during daily browsing but this was not the case before.

I have tried several methods to attempt to control the order the suggestions appear but Youtube still autocompletes as soon as I type the "y".

Any way to change this to my liking? Or is this just the way it is and will be?

I've attached a screenshot but I edited it to obliterate a few id's and personal information from the example url's.

Hi Firefox

For the past few updates you have changed your user interface (UI) from time to time and I have to say I am not really a fan of any of the new ones. However, it was once possible to get some add ons like "classic theme restorer 1.4.5" to restore the older more compact and efficient look of firefox. However, I can't find any of those sort of add ons anymore and trying to manually change the look, revert settings and so many more options suggested on the internet is clunky, inefficient and quite frustrating to try and make work.

Is there any way to revert the UI back to a more classic look like in Firefox 89 (or the one from the verison attached in the image) rather than these newer "messy" ones, or will you hopefullt implement a function in the future where one can select an older UI for the browser? I can see from forums, discussions and more online that I am not the only one who wishes there was a way to get an older UI back as the newer ones, in my opinion are no way near as good as the older ones.

Hope you can help with this

Best Regards Klaus
