Greetings. Since mid-May, our university is unable to use a key element of the Blackboard LMS. The scoring guide tool is currently not functioning in Firefox browser and learners are not able to view feedback that is created in Firefox. 60,000 of us are required to use an alternate browser to grade or view assignments/assessments! Faculty IT support indicates that it is now a Firefox issue - what is the ETA for addressing this glitch? Most of us love Firefox and do not want to work with the recommended competitor browser. :-)

Every time I start Firefox (on Windows 10) a second tab opens which says "Connect another device". When I open the tab there are some links to install Firefox on smartphones, etc.

However, I already have Firefox linked and syncing on my Android smartphone, and 3 other computers. For some reason FF is not seeing that I have those devices linked on my account.

I have tried disconnecting from all devices in the "Account Management" page and then reconnecting. But this has no effect. Even when I am signed out on all devices, the tab asking me to connect another device continues to appear every time I start Firefox.

I have also tried refreshing Firefox to no avail. But I have noticed that if I start the browser in "safe" mode, the errant tab does not always open.

Is there a way to turn off this tab?

Thank you.

IMac 2010 Sierra & Macbook Pro Catalina

Hi, I have been dialoguing with Microsoft over the random behaviour of Outlook when I click on a message (or the command 'Open the message in a new window'). The window always opens but the message is not always displayed- there is no pattern in this behaviour.

See enclosed screen captures.

This problem occurs on my two machines (see above). I also have Safari and this problem does not occur with this browser.

Microsoft thinks it's a Firefox problem ....il s'agit d'un problème spécifique au navigateur...."

Do you have any ideas?

Do you want a copy of my exchange with Microsoft?

Many thanks for your answers

I use 2 pair of earbuds with my PC. When one pair has to charge, I shut it off or just plug it in (same as shutting it off) and connect the 2nd pair.

When the 1st pair is shut off, Firefox drops out of the Volume Mixer. When the 2nd pair connects, Firefox does not reload in the Volume Mixer. No sound on any webpage. Reloading a tab doesn't help. I always have multiple tabs open so having to restart Firefox every time it drops out of the Volume Mixer is beyond annoying. Isn't there an easier way? (don't have this problem with other browsers)

Hello everyone I hope you all are doing fantastic! I'm writing this post due to from one moment to another my outlook stopped worked by using firefox! :( I did investigate in similar forums here in the mozilla support, for example this one:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1114389

It seems everything got fixed in a patch from my understanding. I could observe core filres were generated and I'm not even sure if that's related to it but may be useful.

At the moment here is everything I've tried.

1. Clear history, cache for everything. 2. Refresh firefox and Refresh with Add-ons disabled too. 3. I uninstall firefox, since I'm using a Mac I deleted the Library/Application Support/Firefox folder and the Library/Caches/Firefox and Library/Cache/Mozilla.

I'm concerned because, also if I open Chrome for example I can use the outlook without a problem.

Please, all the help will be really appreciate it!!

Have an amazing day, regards.

I've been using Firefox for many (many) years, but the latest version is driving me mad. We are limited to high latency satellite internet, which I fully understand, but the current version of Firefox is painfully slow to respond after hitting "return".....

If I type in the URL box, or something in the search box (being old fashioned I still use the search box in the middle of the screen, I don't like typing in the URL box no matter how much "they" highlight it) when I hit return NOTHING HAPPENS (at least for a while!). Initially I thought I had a faulty keyboard, or that I was hitting shift by mistake, but when I started being more careful and taking note I realised that the slowness is Firefox. It can take several seconds of zero apparent activity before the two dots start flashing in the tab header.

The machine is high spec, not under load, and no other applications seem to be suffering. I do accept that the high latency means that transactions take some time, but the delay appears to be before Firefox starts doing anything - the screen does not change, no alternating dots in the tab header, nothing happening in the tab footer etc. I've repeatedly found myself pressing return again, thinking I missed!!

Is this a "new feature"? Is there anything I can do about it? Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

Hi - When on Google Video, my firefox does not allow me to select my connected Airpods as a "Speaker" option. However, it allows me to select the Airpods as a "Microphone" only. This is not an issue on Google Chrome and believe it is a Mozilla integration issue.

Has anyone else had this issue? It would be great for Mozilla to fix so I don't have to do a Google Video in a different web browser.

Hi everyone!

I have have a problem when typing e-mails in an hotmail.com-account. Almost every second word is underlined with a red wavy line. It marks spelling mistakes and makes suggestions for a different spelling. I do not need spell check and even do not want it. It's very annoying.

I use Windows 7.

I have deactivated spell check in both Firefox and Outlook already and also have restarted Firefox after several changes. But the red lines are still there.

Does anyone have any idea what else I could try?

THANKS A LOT for any tips and advice in advance.

I'm not going to get into the complete and utter disaster that 78 is. I'll keep my grief and anguish to myself. The fact that I have to click spacebar to get to the old (vastly superior) dropdown list makes me irate. (This is the first time I've explored other programs outside of firefox in over 15 years.) So, I've done this, I've clicked spacebar on the address bar, I can now see my old list of recent or popular, or whatever sites that I frequent the most. But now there's this completely worthless "Search with..." at the top. I've deleted all but one of these search options from the "One-Click Search" in options, but it won't let me delete the last one. I don't need another place to search or something else that I quite frankly don't need in my way. At the top of the search page under options there's this neat little feature called "Search Bar" It's insanely brilliant, I use it all the time. sits right next to the address bar, simple, easy, functional. When I click on the address bar itself, It's all ready for me to search, again, brilliant. Why do I need a 3rd option to get to the same thing?

How do I remove the one-click search from appearing in the address bar dropdown?

On a substantial portion of the pages I try to load I get the "The connection has timed out" page. Sometimes as many as 30% or more of the pages I try to load. I can't say this happens all the time, but I've noticed in a lot of cases there is no activity in that bottom status line about a site being contacted or some google ad page is loading or whatever Just nothing at all

I suspect my ISP (verizon DSL) has been restricting my bandwidth -- the situation wasn't this bad a few years ago When I called to ask about it, the call center agent said that I had signed up for a slow connection -- the only thing I signed up for was DSL -- and there was nothing she could do about it

I check www.dailylocal.com for old hometown news, but it's been timing out every time for a couple weeks I'm pretty sure that they're not a first-class operation, but I'm also wondering if Verizon could be keeping a blacklist of sites since some of these sites keep timing out while others sail through

I'm not at all asseting Fireforx is an issue The sites won't load with Edge either But I trust Firefox folks more than most others Any info you can provide, I'd appreciate I'd love to know how I can monitor real time the bandwidth Verizon is providing me

Thanks
