There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

I have an add-on ad blocker for youtube and have never gotten ads. This afternoon that stopped. I get ads with every video I click and there is no 'skip ad' on the screen. I added another top rated youtube add blocker, quit firefox and then opened it again. Before, if I clicked a video it started an ad and I could go back and then hit the video again, but now that doesn't work, but if I select to show the video in a new tab, there are no ads in that tab. What can I do to make the ads stop like they used to and never appear? Yes and my OS is Ubuntu 22.04

Hi. When Windows 11 was initially released, certain substantial feature of the Windows taskbar known from before was missing. I'm talking about 'Combine taskbar buttons and hide labels' and the option to set it to 'Never' (users tend to set it this way to always see the program icon along with it's label, not just the icon). At this moment, the feature has been available in widely released build of Windows 11 for months (Microsoft returned it after rewriting the taskbar code and after many complains), but it is not working correctly in conjunction with Firefox. When I close all windows and tabs of Firefox and restart the browser, only its icon is visible on the taskbar, not the label. Only when I open one more Firefox window, it starts to work as it should. Is it a known issue? Can we expect a fix to be made soon? Thanks.

I use Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 11.

When I try to print a .pdf (mainly from gmail), the option for Portrait/Landscape will pop up for a split second, then disappear. I can only print Landscape.

- I've tried changing printers, but still get the same result (no portait option) - When I load gmail on Microsoft Edge, I get the portrait/landscape option as normal. - I changed the layout.css.page-size.enabled option to False, and still get the same result (no portrait option).

This started happening a few months ago, previous to this, everything worked normal.

Does anyone have a fix for this ? thanks

Hi. I am running a 3 monitor setup and I like to keep open quite a few tabs. And two windows of Firefox. So two Firefox instances with several tabs on each. But because it eats a lot of memory, I have to close and reopen Firefox from time to time. And to my annoyance, sometimes it "forgets" about one of the windows. So opens only one instead of both. Therefore I loose some quite important tabs. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you.

Any news on this?

Kind regards,

I just downloaded the latest Firefox browser, and it asked me to import all of the my bookmarks, but it only grabbed the ones from Chrome. All of my former bookmarks that were saved in the previous Firefox browser are gone! Most of my useful bookmarks were in Firefox. Where are they, and how do I get them back?

When I come back to my mac after a long sleep, all the apps are working fine and instantly but firefox freezes. It's not responsive at all, I cannot click on the tabs or the content of the open tabs. All I can do is kill it and restart it. It's been happening every day. This does not happen with other apps/browsers. I usually don't have more than 5 tabs open and none of them do any intensive stuff. What can I do to debug this?

Please provide a native way to change the behaviour of Ctrl-W. I tend to switch between aZerty and qWerty keyboard layouts, as a result I sometimes hit ctrl-W when I would like to ctrl-Z some change. As a result I tend to lose some work when the tab I'm working in closes. It would be nice to be able to rebind some of the default key combinations, or at least disable them.

I found a method description that edits the omni.ja file, but also that this method is unsupported. Moreover, running ubuntu kind of rules this out as an option, as canonical has ruled that firefox is to be installed via snap, in a read-only data store.

Hello all,

I've had some recent issues with my Firefox browser. All the Google services (Youtube, search, Gmail, Drive, GMeet) sometimes randomly do not load. The GET request is sent, but there is no answer. All the other websites work perfectly, and when I make the same Google related request via a private window, it (usually) works. So it does not seem to be a connection issue.

This was due to an update to Firefox I did recently. I already encountered that problem after an update end of 2022, and I reverted to an older version to remove the issue (106.0.3). Unfortunately some services don't work with it anymore, so I updated to the most current version (122.0.1 64 bits) thinking that the issue would be fixed. Unlucky for me, the problem came back.

I tried quite a lot of the basic things:

  • Remove all the plugins
  • Remove cache and cookies
  • Uninstall Firefox
  • Restart the computer (Windows 10 by the way)

I saw on a lot of forums pages that what worked for most people was to to set security.tls.enable_0rtt_data = false on the about:config, which I did, but the problem persists. I also noticed that when I reset Firefox, some visuals from Google services will have trouble to load the first few times I go on the page (as shown on the image attached). Not sure if it is relevant though.

Would you have any idea what I could try? My job is primarely focused around the Google Suite, so that is becoming a significantly painful problem to deal with...

Thanks in advance for any help!

I lost my New Tab Page, the default page. I see the article that explains how to disable extensions, but the directions start with clicking on Menu. The opening page I get now does not have a menu icon, it does not have a new tab bar, and it does not even have an X to close the window. So how do I get the old Default windo back?
