Hello, Firefox always downloads a pdf files from e-mail attachments, whether I open it in a browser or with acrobat reader. So, if I open the same file every time it goes to download folder with multiple clones, like example file-1, example file-2 etc. I've used every combination of options, but the result is always the same. I've refreshed Firefox, but nothing changed.

Please help me with this case.

I have a 2020 Mac Mini with Ventura 13.2.1 on it. I have four virtual desktops which are part of the OS. I place various apps on the others like stocks and weather etc. to diminish clutter on screen. Firefox shows up on all 4 of them. I want it on only one desktop. Safari works on only one and doesn't show in the other 3 desktops. I have searched the net but haven't found anything that speaks to this in particular. Thanks for any help with this and I hope it's just a simple setting. Regards, Jim Stephens

Hi,

I recently added ESET Password Manager as an extension but I was unable to log on and use it on my laptop. In a nutshell, to be able to log on and use the extension, I needed to install the app on my phone as well and sync between laptop and phone did the rest. This solved the login issue however, there is no icon on the toolbar for the extension and if I want to use the Password Manager, I have to do it on my phone.

Any ideas on how this could be solved? I have reinstalled the extension numerous times, tried troubleshooting mode as well but that is not useful with add-ons..

Thanks S

I am trying to move my mobile bookmarks from Firefox to Brave. I've synced them with no trouble from Firefox Android to desktop. I can see a folder in the Firefox bookmark manager called "mobile bookmarks", and it contains all my mobile bookmarks. From there, I can open them in Firefox, Brave, Edge, and Chrome. No problem.

When I click "Import and Backup", then "Export Bookmarks to HTML", I'm able to save the HTML file to whatever location I like - desktop, Downloads folder, etc. However, when I go to open the file, it only contains the Mozilla default bookmarks. None of the "Mobile bookmarks" folder is visible. The HTML file is only 11 kb.

Screenshots are attached. Using Firefox version 113.0.1.

FWIW, I've also tried directly importing the bookmarks to Brave using their import feature (not using an HTML file), and Brave does not recognize any bookmark files whatsoever from Firefox. Getting really frustrated.

Anyone experienced this before?

Moin all,

since some several weeks I'm facing a real anoying problem. Every Youtube (and other platforms) Video shows extreme brightness. It looks like as someone recorded the video directly in the sun. An example is the best so I attached a Photo with FF in the top left, Chrome in the top right and Edge at the Bottom. Only the frames have been a bit cropped for privacy.

The video shown in the screenshot can be found here. Today I also tried a fresh installation of my Win 11 and also FF (Had some free SSD around for that). But this had no effect, it looked the same. The only change I can see is when the Troubleshoot mode is being activated. But only while this mode is active. If FF is being reset or even new installation (like before fresh Win 11), no change.

Cause of this behaviour I also mentioned FF Video Stream is not HDR. The others show HDR but as not every Youtube Video can be HDR I think this is not the Problem. Anyway, I don't want to change my favorite browser which was working now for about 20 years.

Does anybody have a clue what is causing this or is it a bug?

greets indy

Hello, I hope someone can help me.

Ever since I updated firefox, my cpu is almost at 100%. With only 2 or 3 tabs open. I updated from version 106.0.2 to 112.0.2. Before this update, I could have several tabs open, up to 10 and the computer would run fine. Now with 3 tabs open, it gets really slow. And I can hear my desktop suffering (the fans go to full speed). When checking the task manager, firefox is taking all the memory and the cpu usage is almost at 100%. I have to keep restarting firefox.

The conditions are the same. The only thing that changes was updating firefox. I already searched for ways to reduce the firefox cpu usage, but nothing changed.

Is there a way to fix this? Or how can I go back to an older version of firefox? Because I'm afraid my computer will die from simply opening 3 tabs.

Thank you in advance.

Radio buttons on some websites neither display nor update when the area in which is should have displaed is clicked. FireFox 113.0.2 (64-bit) on Mac OS X 10.13.6 (High Sierra). This problem has been present for some time. On other websites the radio buttons do display and do upate when clicked by toggling the dark center. The minority of websites which don't work seems random, but does include some banking websites and the IRS.gov website. Often using SAFARI will work when FireFox doesn't.

The CheckBox at the end of this page "Email me when someone answers the thread" appears but does not respond to a click.
