I am using the latest version of firefox. Windows 10. I'm writing a school project with assistance from ChatGPT. When I ask it for a link, it provides it. While it is "typing", I can see the link, but when it finishes "typing", the link becomes a blue word "Link", with the web address gone. I can not click on it to open the website, like I can in Mirosoft office. There is no way to access the website. I tried to use troubleshooting mode with all extensions disabled - it didn't help. ChatGPT claims, that it's the browser issue. How can I access these links?

Ever since the update, I have had pink flickers on videos on youtube and twitter. They last for less then a second, so I couldn't grab a screenshot of it. After doing some reading online, I turned off hardware acceleration which turned the pink flicker black and now effects several sections of the web browser.

Having tried all pointers to how to display this data, I give up and present my case here: In a banking app, the login field is blank and requires me to enter the correct Login ID. This works fine. However, if I double click on that field, an option is displayed, happening to be my email address, which will not work in this case; a numeric value is required.

So, knowing a prompt is enabled, I have entirely failed to get 'it' to save the correct ID. I have also find a place in Firefox settings where I can see and modify the value that comes up. I do however remember doing exactly that for some other site.

So, as I have said, I cannot find this in the Passwords nor the Settings pages. What am I missing?

Help would be much appreciated.

I'm having this exact problem from here , but browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled has always been set to true. Toggling it does nothing in itself in between restarting my machine. I am certain it's not a jump menu thing because this isn't about shortcuts (and besides the point, enabling the jump shortcuts from my OS side of things does not display it either way). I just want the stuff that the user in the above link listed.

Coincidentally, I had this exact problem a short while before, and I think it may have had to do with an update, because I remember Firefox updating at least twice fairly recently and it is in this time I've noticed this issue. The first time around it resolved itself, but this time it has not and I do not know the cause.

Unpinning/pinning the icon on the task bar does not resolve this either. It seems none of the conventional solutions in the past work, so unless I am missing something, something broke.

Hi, Firstly I apologize because I'm not very tech savvy. My firefox browser has been taking ages to load. I've tried various 'fixes' over the last week or so and they don't work for long. I'm going down the 'try this' list and am at the 'clear junk in manage data' suggestion. Someone else had success with getting rid of a load of youtube saved junk. I'm in the Cookie and Site Data area, it says it's using 793mb of disc space yet when I tap on 'manage data' to try and clear stuff that area shows up as empty. I've searched but can't locate how to fix this issue. Or I might be missing something completely obvious. :/

My memory, and health, is not great so if possible I really don't want to resort to clearing everything and having to re-add log ins etc.

Does anyone know how to fix this please?

Thank you!

Please help.

I have always loved Firefox. I started using it because it did not constrict the user to the limits of the narrow minded Microsoft Explorer (Edge). But, this latest update reminds me of what I came to Firefox for. I hope Firefox is not going to become the same way. This latest update (124.0.1) just didn't care about my bookmarks or extensions or anything. It just installed a new version and left it at that. I had several tabs open. Gone. I had several bookmarks. Gone. All extensions. Gone.

For a long time Firefox just updated and left all of those things in tact. What happened?? More importantly, does anyone know how to get these things back?

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you, Luke

I installed Firefox on a new computer running Windows 11. I use the X-notifier plug-in to access my Gmail account but can't get X-notifer to run properly on this new install. I was getting an error message, but now it says "Can always read and change data on this site" yet the envelope icon does not appear in my tool bar like it does on my old computer.

As an alternative, I signed into my Gmail account so I can read my email on a browser page. While that works, it works too well -- as soon as a new email arrives, the browser tab running Gmail pops to the top and interrupts anything that I am doing -- even when I am typing a new email or filling out a form on another tab.

The only way I can deal with this is 1) sign out of Gmail until I want to check it, or 2) pull the Gmail tab to a separate window and minimize it so it can't interfere with what I am doing.

I'd like to know if there is a fix for the X-notifier plug-in or a way to stop the Gmail tab from "taking over" the browser.

Refer to the attached image ... I've looked thru history, bookmark manager, all the settings, and so on and this site cannot be removed from the URL suggestions! Your documentation suggested clicking a button on the far right, but it's non-existent. You also suggested to scroll down to highlight/select the URL and SHIFT+DEL, but that does nothing. I've been trying to get rid of this obsolete website link for over a year and it's an absolute mystery where the link is coming from and bugs me.

Is there any way to make Firefox show the "back", "forward", "reload", "bookmark" buttons that are shown in the default context menu when right clicking a web page also in the context menu that is shown when right clicking an image?

I think those buttons should always be included in all context menus opened for a web page, no matter if you happen to click on the background, on selected text, on an image or a link because.

It is so frustrating having to open the context menu multiple times to find a location where the default context menu is opened instead of the specific ones for selected texts, images, links etc.

Thanks!

After the latest update (124.0.2), two of my add-ons (Tapermonkey and Youtube Redux) are not working, even though Firefox says they're enabled, and it is giving no indication that the add-ons aren't working, no pop-ups to enable some permission for these extensions. Both of them reformat the layout of websites to make them more usable, and using sites without them is basically impossible for me. I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Disabling the add-ons, refreshing, enabling the add-ons, and refreshing again
  • Checking for add-on updates (everything is updated)
  • Deleting and reinstalling the add-ons
  • Restarting my computer
  • Checking the permissions in the extension menu
  • Turning off all other extensions except for one of the ones with issues
  • Reading through the FAQs and help pages and following the instructions on some of them

Nothing has worked. Every time I reload one of the sites affected by this to check if it's finally worked, the site takes a very long time to load. Since these add-ons are for different websites and both aren't working, I know that the problem is not with the sites themselves. Thank you.

When I try to use the Criterion Channel and several other websites that use cyberlocker video services, I get an error with no code (attached screenshot). Here's what I have tried to solve it with: - VPN - Clearing cache - turning off all extensions that target ads, pop-ups, and tracking; and making sure Firefox itself isn't blocking tracking - using the user-agent switch extension to pretend I'm on a different browser The last one makes me think it might be a Windows 10 problem and not a Firefox problem, but I'm just covering my bases. Any help is appreciated!
