I cannot register my clicks in certain sites, like Google Translate, Google Maps, Yahoo search history. Please see attached screenshot for example when I click on a language there, my click is not registered, the language is not selected. The only way for me to select a language there for example is to use arrow keys and Enter , not mouse click :( I only have this problem with Firefox, I don't have it with any other browser

I can't sign in to any websites using a Google login. I used to be able to do this, but I no longer can. I've tried running in Safe Mode with all add-ons disabled, clearing the cache, deleting cookies.sqlite in case it was corrupted, and of course restarting my computer. None of these worked. I can sign in with Chrome, but not Firefox. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Firefox "froze" and I closed and reopened using restore previous session. Tabs opened across the top, but they were blank (no words). I closed and opened again, and only one tab opened. In my library profile, there is no recovery.js or sessionstore.js file. There is no sessionstore.bk file. Dated today when the crash happened, I only find previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4, and recovery.jsonlz4 documents. There is also a previous.jsonlz4 document from a few minutes before the crash. Is there any hope of recovering my tabs?

When I open Outlook it comes up in a sidebar that is really inconvenient to use because it requires a lot of scrolling back and forth. How can I make the sidebar larger, if not full screen? There may be an obvious way to do this, but I can't find it.

i have the latest mac os mojave, latest firefox version and it's been freezing on the print to pdf dialog box where you choose the folder where to save/print the pdf. After a few seconds it just freezes. This really sucks since i print a lot in PDF via the web browser. this is a deal breaker and that i have to force myself to go back to chrome. Same case with the latest version of firefox developer edition.

Firefox is not listed there. Only Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer. I've tried everything I can think of. Is this a Microsoft or Firefox issue? Would like to set Firefox as default, but cannot. I already tried the help article here. Firefox is not listed at all. Tried uninstalling Edge, could not do that.

Firefox Sync Sucks. I Disconnect From It Every 2 or 3 Minutes!

I'm really aggravated. I have the latest version of Firefox and I'm able to log into my Sync account without any problem, however, I'm disconnected from my Sync account every 2 or 3 minutes (without fail).

On the other hand I also use Waterfox (again, I have the latest browser) and it stays logged into my Firefox Sync account without any problem.

I'm actually thinking about switching over to Waterfox for good just for that reason, but Waterfox doesn't support Addons to the same degree that Firefox does... which is why I'm hoping that I can fix the problem in the Firefox browser.

Anyone have any suggestions?

When I try to upload a picture to a website, Firefox opens the finder window to browse for my picture on my Mac. I choose 'Photos" in the directory tree. It used to open the list of photos in the photos app and allow me to choose a photo. But now it just sits there saying "Loading Images" forever. It never shows the contents of my photos app.

Both Safari and Google Chrome will still display my pictures and let me choose a photo.

If you are trying to switch from one room to another and get this message, then your browser might not have released the connection to the previous room yet - click here to try again

If you keep getting this message then your browser haven't released the connection to the room you were in. This is known to be an issue with newer versions of some browsers, eg. Internet Explorer (it not closing down processes running Flash correctly). In that case you might need to end/kill the running browser process manually or restart your computer.

Another solution can be for you to try using another browser, eg. Firefox or Chrome (remember to install/allow Flash to run then)

So about a week or so ago I got a second-hand Lenovo Yoga 500. The owner bought it in 2016 and then sold it to me on eBay. I'm very happy with it, but I've been noticing that, while the Pentium chip is zippy enough most times, Firefox seems to slow it down considerably. Chrome does it to a lesser extent, and I haven't tested Microsoft Edge. To fix the problem, I have tried:

-Refreshing Firefox -Running in Safe Mode -Toggling hardware acceleration -Decreasing the number of tab processes -Force disabling accessability. -Updating the BIOS.

Nothing works! Does anyone have a solution. about:config muck-arounds accepted.

The wonderful extension "Blacken" is suddenly hanging up Firefox with a yellow warning that a script is causing a slow-down. Actually, it pretty thoroughly hangs up the tab. A screen shot of the warning is attached.

This used to work very well, but sometime within the past couple of months it started to hang up Firefox. I've tried clearing the cache and increasing dom.max_script_run_time from 10 to 20, but to no avail.

Any idea what's up and how I can fix it?
