Using the LinkedIn website via Firefox has got really glitchy recently I've had to start using a different browser.

It constantly freezes when I'm trying to add comments to people's posts or reply to comments on my posts. Or when I start typing it jumps away from the dialogue box so I can't see what I'm writing.

If I want to make a correction or edit in a reply I'm writing it often freezes and I have to refresh and start again.

Previously not had any problems.

These last days I am unable to login to some sites (www.barclays.co.uk, www.moneycorp.com) from Firefox 82.0.2, but can from Safari. For so many years I have used Firefox without a problem. This is the first time it has happened. Has something been altered which now causes these problems? how do I solve it? Thanks!

Hi all,

I am running into an odd issue and I am stumped on what to try next. As you can see in the attached images, I am running into a problem with select dropdowns. The first dropdown is from https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-400/ (Buy Now and click country) and the second is from this Mozilla support page. Long story short is dropdowns are messed up in my default profile. I have done the following to attempt to troubleshoot the issue -

1) Restart Firefox in Safe-Mode without addons 2) Refresh Firefox 3) Delete the Firefox user directory 4) Create a brand new profile and launch into the new profile (This works but for some reason but it can't be my default profile) Default profile fails to work but others don't. If I set my newly created profile as the default, then the new default profile doesn't work. Odd.

Anyway, if anyone has any insight on fixing this issue then it would be great. The dropdowns have been broken for a few months but I have just dealt with them. Thank you for any help over the topic.

recently my firefox browser lost my password to coinbase, and sent incorrect information to coinbase that locked my account out. This is not a myth, it actually happened. It took me well over a week to get my account unlocked. I lost a week of trading because of this apparently well known glitch on Firefox. Now, I can't even load or log in to coinbase from Firefox. Why????

To November 1st 2020 I used playing videos from my Firefox browser on macOS on my smart TV. Youtube app on TV was paired to Firefox browser (or my profile on Youtube) and from browser I could "send link" to TV and it started to play this video. This pairing option was removed on November 1st from my knowledge, and as alternative Google's support page hinted alternative method that should work if devices are on the same wifi network - it worked from my iPhone, but not from MacBook (Firefox) - cast icon just did not appeared in browser. Today I tried to install Google Chrome browser and it works in it! Why it's not working from Firefox??? As I understand it's still not video casting like Airplay, or Chromecast it's just alternative method to sending the video "link" which TV should play, but not thru Internet but thru local network. Is there any workaround? I really don't want to switch to Chrome not even just for Youtube playback... I want use ONE browser.

Firefox needs to be fully restarted in order for VPN to take effect

I have a Palo Alto split tunnel VPN connection (using MacOS GlobalProtect application) and everytime I need to connect to the VPN I have to fully restart Firefox, by right clicking on the dock icon and choosing `Quit`.

If I don't do that all internal pages behave as if the VPN wasn't connected, either hanging until timing out or presenting me with an unauthorized page.

After a full restart, all pages open normally, using the VPN connection. This behaviour is not present in Chrome, which catches the VPN connection, throws an `ERR_NETWORK_CHANGED`, and, after refreshing the page, starts using the VPN connection normally.

I tried switching to offline mode back and forth, changing proxy settings back and forth, clearing DNS cache, none of which works for me, but a full restart.

I wonder if there is any workaround other than the full browser restart or if this is indeed a known bug that needs to be fixed.

I'm trying to be efficient when switching between multiple Firefox windows on a Mac. On Windows, it's easy, just hit Alt+Tab and the OS handles the most-recently-used window switch.

On a Mac, there's Command+Shift+~, but it iterates the windows in the fixed order, which is definitely not what I want. So far I have to use Mission Control to handle that, and it's still not good enough.

So, is there a way to iterate over windows in the "most recently used" order also?

For some reason, so far, twice I have opened Firefox only to discover everything reset to the default: addons gone, history gone, websites I have previously signed into gone as well. And I am not sure how this happens, and what to do to prevent it.

I have searched up help, but I feel I am unable to understand them.

Video help would be especially appreciated.
