With Gmail open in Firefox browser, when I start typing the name of the addressee in the TO field, many addressees will not autocomplete, even though they are properly saved in my Gmail contacts list. I looked for common solution for this ... and found: use different browser. I did, and MS Edge works just fine. Is there a setting in Firefox that will fix this?

Using this PDF as an example, open it in FF and search for regional development (one space). It finds no hits when I do this.

If I search for regional development (two spaces), it finds one hit.

If I search for regional development (three spaces), it finds one hit.

If I open the PDF in Chrome or in Adobe Reader and search for regional development (one space), it finds two hits, treating the intervening spaces as one space.

I think FF should work like Adobe Reader and Chrome in this regard.

We have a Ubiquiti POE switch with a web based controlled. Every time we start the controller Firefox throws a warning the site is dangerous and should be visited even though it's pointing to an internal address and port. We have to go to advanced and select ignore to gain access. Is there any way to disable this warning so it doesn't pop up every time?

Hello,

When I try to play a 4K Video on YouTube on Firefox 88.0, it's choppy while the same video on YouTube on Microsoft Edge is smooth. From my understanding is doesn't seem to be related to my internet connection (Optic Fiber Orange / 300 Mbps) otherwise it wouldn't be smooth on Microsoft Edge nor to my hardware.

A strange behavior of Firefox is that when I enter the address of the 4K Video, YouTube on Firefox doesn't automaticaly detect the 4K quality. Its auto-detection don't go above HD (1080p or 1440p) I have to manually change the quality and when I choose 4K it's choppy. The red playing bar is always closed to the grey "download" bar. If after selecting manually 4K quality, I select Auto quality again, YouTube on Firefox downgrade the video quality to 1440p. For the same video on YouTube on Microsoft Edge, when I enter the address of the video, auto-detection automatically goes to 4K and everything is ok. (The grey download bar is always far away the red playing bar)

I don't think my hardware is faulty in term of power.

CPU : Ryzen 5900 GPU : RTX 3080 Screen : Dual Screen with 4K Monitor (XV273K and XB271HK) Windows Version : 19042.928 (20H2) Firefox : 88.0 Graphic Drivers : Geforce Game Ready Driver 466.11

Could you help me to fix this, please?

Thanks,

The website I'm currently having the issue with is https://sandbox.eth.build/ , but I've had the issue with other sites too, and it's often debilitating to some extremity

Unless it's something strange that's unique to me, and if you are using the most recent Firefox Desktop version (88.0 (64-bit)) for Windows 10, you should see the issue that I'm having with the subject website:

Currently, the website uses the scrolling input to zoom in and out of the workspace, and would not be needed to scroll up and down the webpage, except for an extremely long, blank, vertical abyss beneath the workspace that has no reason to exist. That in itself is a problem, but it wouldn't be worth it to me to bother with visiting this forum and creating a post about it, if that was to be the only problem. You would only accidentally scroll down instead of out if your cursor was hovering over some part of the page or workspace that would otherwise give a null response to scrollwheel input, so it's not really too frustrating if you can just make a habit of being conscious of where your mouse is while scrolling.

The problem, as I hope you'll be able to see from my uploaded images, is the scrollbar, which overlaps the text from the dropdown menu on the right, in addition to causing half of the text at the bottom to be covered due to pushing the workspace's vertical toolbar further out than it's meant to be.

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

Hello all. Why has FireFox been degrading lately? What's going on? What happens to the only browser on the planet? Why has the new design lost icons and does not allow you to use the thin strip of the bar? Where did the page view button go and why you should follow it into the general menu under the headline of the window or open it on hot keys? Especially what happens with DoH, where did the set-up network.trr.bootstrapAddress in about:config disappear? I kept hoping that the white lights would be fixed when I started and opened the new tab, but it still remains, do I still have WaterFox to continue using or what? Which by the way for some reason is further optimized under the various instructions of the processor unlike the original, which gives a great performance when using a decent set of extensions with a large blocklist of the ad blocker.

Hi

This is not a bug, just more of a feature request. Every time when I sync an account to a new device, I got a popup to sync another device and afterwards I get a mail on how to complete my sync setup and sync another device. I'd have no problem with it, if this is my first device that I am trying to sync. But I have several devices with the sync enabled, I am syncing from these devices and Mozilla knows this as it has history of devices where I was signed in and it can see that there are data to be synced so apparently this is not the first device you are trying to sync. Can we have an option to dismiss these messages and popups forever?

Thanks

Hi,

in our Organization it happened to two User that they cannot use Firefox anymore for external Sites. We upgraded to Firefox 78.9.0 ESR on 08.04.2021 but the issue happened Today. Our internal DNS is only resolving internal Domains. I copied the Profile of one affected User to test it on one of my devices with the Same Version Firefox has a auto Proxy Configuration URL set. When i try to load the URL manually nothing happens as in screenshot2. I also verified it with Wireshark. No HTTP Request is send to the IP. In about:networking I can see that the Domain is resolved screenshot 3. When i try to use the IP it works screenshot 4 When i use the IP in the "auto Proxy Configuration URL " it also works.

When i create a new Profile the Domain Name and the URL both work.

How can I find the cause of this issue ?

since a couple of days ago, I cannot save any bookmarks anymore. If I press the star, nothing happens. If I try adding the bookmark manually through the menu, nothing happens after I press add to bookmarks.

When I open a new page, the section "important pages" is with empty tiles. I cannot add any pages manually either. If I put in an address and save it, still no pic appears and if I press the tile, nothing happens.

I deinstalled and installed several times, with deinstaller and special programm, with and without disconnecting from my account. I tried opening the browser in safety mode but the problem stays the same. nothing seems to work. When installing again, it always automatically imports my settings, I cannot seem to be able to prevent that in order to see, if it is something there.

The problem seems to occur onlny on my computer at home, the tablet, cellphone and laptop that are also connected to my account are working fine.

Does anybody know, what to do?

I work with Windows 10 64bit and the newest version of mozilla
