I am using Firefox 77.0 and get flashing images that seem to occur randomly. One just appeared as I am typing this. It is quite annoying and, and for anyone susceptible to strobe lighting, may be dangerous.

Operating system is Fedora 32. I have also recently installed a Microsoft wired, laser mouse but I don't think this is causing the problem.

I have Gnome Tweaks installed and have noticed that the Windows Title bar items flash at the same time.

So starting yesterday I noticed that when ever I go to alt tab out of Firefox, the page I'm currently on goes back a page and I've narrowed it down to my Alt key being the culprit. This only effects Firefox, as I've checked other browsers and I can tab out just fine there. I've tried restarting FireFox to its default state and restarted my system but the issue persists. If anyone has any advice how to solve this I'd greatly appreciate it as this issue has become quite annoying.

Hello, I should start by saying that I'm a technophobe so I admit I'm not very good at explaining my problem or understanding how to deal with it. A couple of weeks ago my tabs began crashing regularly. After researching online, I've refreshed Firefox, done a clean re-install, emptied the cache, disabled add-ons, tried safe mode and turned off hardware acceleration. None have made any difference. I'm up-to-date with Firefox and am using Windows 10. When I switch to Microsoft Edge I don't get any problems at all. I take this to mean that it's not a problem with my PC which has all the latest updates installed. I there anything else I can try? I'm not keen on Edge and would prefer to stick with Firefox. Incidentally, this tab has crashed twice whilst I was typing this message. Thank you.

I don't know if this is related to Firefox version 78.0.2 (64-bit) which automatically downloaded itself and installed after a Windows10 reboot about a week or two ago, but during that same time period I have no longer been able to download/save documents (e.g., PDFs) and videos (MP4s) from websites. All I get is a blue bar (with an exit button) that says "Opening <filename>.<ext>". See attached image. Since nothing happens, I have to click the exit button. Much of my effort at the computer has come to a standstill because I can no longer download items from websites. There is no option in the "Help" dropdown to reload and reinstall the current version, so I'm stuck.

By the way, are PNG images required or merely preferred for attachments?

Unwanted new behaviors in Bookmarks and Tools and especially in "new windows"

I don't know if this is related to Firefox version 78.0.2 (64-bit) which automatically downloaded itself and installed after a Windows10 reboot about a week or two ago, but during that same time period I have had intolerable problems with new windows as well as unwelcome new behaviors with "not-new" windows passed from the previous version to the current version. All of the issues (at least those I've discovered so far) are noted on the attached image, so there's little point in repeating them here. The greatest problems are with new windows: issues A and B make new windows almost useless (without a lot of extra effort to work around the issues), and the fact that I can no longer add more tabs to a new window is simply intolerable. (If I attempt adding a tab, it somehow "locks" the window, and it cannot be exited or deleted without taking down Firefox.) The second problem is that at least some menu items in the "original" window(s) from the previous version no longer work correctly, if at all. The latter "if at all" (Tools|Page Info) is something I heavily depend upon because other browsers don't have such a tool. (I have not tried all of the other Tools to see if they misbehave, too.) To me, it's all part of what makes "full-featured Firefox" better than "crippled Chrome" (which touts speed but deliberately, for the sake of that speed, has restricted its features compared to Firefox). Unfortunately, there is no option in the "Help" dropdown to try reloading and reinstalling the current version (to see if that will fix the problems), so I'm stuck.

There is a website that I used today and discovered that it does not display correctly on Firefox although it displays correctly on Edge and Chrome.

I have attached screenshots of the webpage on all 3 browsers and you can see that the there are 2 ticks missing from the Firefox screen where the text says Available in-store at Karingal and at Pick up Avaliable.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode but it still did not show this screen correctly.

I am running Firefox for Desktop version 78.0.2 (64-bit).

Any suggestions on what is causing this and a solution would be helpful.

2 related problems. 1) Lately having difficulty playing vids on Twitter. Sometimes fine, other times they start, then reboot, repeatedly and won't play.

2) I used to see prompts on explore.org for 'pop cam', to create a new window of just the live-cam. This prompt no longer appears in FF. When I open the site in Vivaldi, it appears, as you can see in the screenshot I've attached. Eg., https://explore.org/livecams/africam/olifants-river

I have read through a number of FF articles, tried changing audio/visual permissions, cleared cache. No difference. I have way too many tabs open, though not loaded. I sincerely hope this isn't creating the problem, as my brain is very slow, it takes me a long time to complete things I've been researching. And until very recently, there were still many tabs, without my current problems.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Like a previous user I too have in the last few months noticed issues because of the MASTER PASSWORD prompt Box being very slow to appear.

I have No problems in using it, neither I have I forgot my master password, my issue is the speed its taking to prompt for it, when I don't even intend to open a website that its holding login details for?

Example: When I am typing some info into the search box I very often find password prompt has picked up some of my search text instead of the search box, because I am looking at the keyboard not the screen I don't notice till its grabbed half my search question.

I don't like to keep the browser open all the time, only when I need to search Google. So each time I open it Its taking between 5 and 10 seconds before the password Box prompt pops in, even though I don't need it too?

The cache is automatically set to clear on browser close, I don't believe its PC speed related as Its a I7 Processor and everything is fine speed-wise.

Any thoughts as to how I can get it to respond only when I request a page/site with relevant details stored. Thanks Baz

I have Firefox 78.0.2 x64 on Windows 10, latest updates. If I restore down my Firefox application window, everything functions fine. However, when I maximize the window, the top inch or more of the Firefox application turns completely white and all controls disappear. Pressing F11 makes the web page zoom bigger (hiding address bar, favorites, status bar, etc.), then pressing F11 again makes them appear. Has anyone else had this issue? Is this a bug, or a graphics card issue?
