Hi,

I work for LinkedIn and several of us are having issues with Firefox. You click on it and it opens but from there it does absolutely nothing. We have done all the troubleshooting possible such as clearing all data, uninstall/install, update, remove extensions ans saved data, delete folder from computer data and nothing fixes this issue. Can someone please assist?

Hi: I've used Firefox for years without trouble and I've even given money! However, I think the last update has prevented my banking site from operating correctly. In Bill payment you choose who you want to pay and fill in the amount. This still works. I move to the month, day, year boxes. If I click, say, on the month box I get a dropdown but selecting the month nothing happens. Ditto with day and year. The day box shows 1 and the year shows 202 and nothing changes when using the drop downs. Can't manually fill in the boxes. At first I thought it was my bank but they said there were no reported problems - they would! So tried Brave and Edge. Both worked perfectly. Tried it on my laptop rather than desktop and same problem using Firefox showed up. I hadn't fiddled with any Firefox settings. What to do? Thanks Donald

For the first time in a week I went directly to my GMX account but couldn't se my emails, contacts or any information other than the form layouts the pages are blank, however in Opera everything is seen. Also for many months Firefox doesn't allow the Recaptures to load so many sites, and services like sending of contact forms, wont work, its extremely frustrating as Firefox has all my passwords. I could go to Pale moon is the PW's can be shared as a FF user of over 20 years it is my preferred browser and would appreciate these issues resolved please.

Hello,

Despite the setting that Firefox never automatically deletes my history, it appears that a large part of my history was automatically deleted. Hence two questions: How can I set Firefox in the configuration so that my history is guaranteed to really never be deleted? Is there a way to recover the deleted part of my history, if so, how?

Thanks and best Regards, Andreas

Facebook does NOT require any HSTS, Edge goes there with no problem. This is why I deleted Firefox last night, I downloaded it again to try to get there and what do you know, it worked. That is until it told me to refresh, then all of a sudden you claim it requires this HSTS which is crap. The only reason I'm not on Edge now is one small little imperfection that Firefox doesn't have. So I guess I'll be deleting Firefox yet again with it's HSTS nonsense.

if there's not already an option to autohide the bookmarks toolbar (like the address bar and tabs when in F11 mode [fullscreen])

can there be?

so like, on default the bookmark toolbar wouldn't show, but when I move my mouse into the specified area it appears (with the same animation as f11 mode)

 thank you,

let me know if i can already do that and if I'm just dumb.

 just to be clear, I want the tabs and url/address bar and tabs to always be there.

Actually might be cool to have options to autohide the tab bar too (separately).

 thanks again,

graham

Firefox is causing loud fan noise and very high CPU usage. It is to the point I am going to have to stop using it.

Here is my info: iMac 27" 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 16 GB MacOS Catalina 10.15.7

Increased usage happens when there are 3 or more tabs are open or any sort of streaming on one tab. It goes up and down, but reaches up into the 90% area.

There must be a fix for this. No other browsers have this issue.

Finally figured it out; and since earlier posts raised the issue but didn't have this solution, I decided to post what worked for me.

1. Download an example of the file type you're having issues with 2. CTL-J or click the down-pointing arrow icon ("display the progress of ongoing downloads") at top right of menu bar 3. Right-click the file name of the item you just downloaded; then choose "Always open similar files"

Adding the file type to Settings > Applications was not an option. Windows Media Pack was a red herring. Autoplay is a different thing.

Hope this helps someone, or maybe ME the next time I forget.

Hi, I browse exclusively full-screen, and I've had a recurring headache making the annoying full-screen animation go away since the inception of Firefox itself- it is the best browser by far and I am loathe to use anything else.

This question comes up time and time again, disabling animations through about:config is very much hit and miss and seems to work completely randomly, sometimes it does, sometimes it don't.

Well, now it don't. Again.

I have the following set:

full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout: 0 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay: 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout: 0 dom.animations-api.core.enabled: false

Oddly enough, there used to be options for setting "cosmetic" animations too, but I have no option to change that since FF 100.

Can someone please let me know how to solve this because the annoyance is big enough for me to switch over to Opera or some other browser permanently for how consistently unreliable this function is.

Thank you.

I have been having an issue, since just before the update to 100, where Google sites stop responding. Gmail will display banner at the top "OOPS - The system encountered a problem...", Google search from the search bar will do nothing, Google Maps will not load and any google web page will not load or refresh. Closing Firefox and restarting it will fix the issue, temporarily. At first I thought it was any web page, but I have tested other search engines and web pages, using Firefox while the Google pages are unresponsive, and it is limited to Google pages. I can open the affected Google pages with Edge, while Firefox is still "locked out".

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Hello! Thanks for your help with my situation.

I want to leave google so am trying Firefox. I like it except that I can't see all the tabs that I need to use at once. There is a slider function so I can only see 14 tabs. Then there are little arrows pointing left and right so I can have access to the other pages.

Is there a way that I can see all of the tabs I have open at once?

If I not, I may need to use another search engine.

Thanks for your time! Sincerely, Kathryn
