How do I create multiple Firefox website shortcuts on the Windows 11 taskbar? I understand how and have created a single taskbar shortcut, but when I try to create another there is no "Pin to taskbar" option in the context menu when the shortcut is right clicked; there is only the "unpin from taskbar option".

Thank you.

As said in the title, both Firefox, Firefox DE and Chrome will open and crash/close instantly on my new Lenovo Legion PC with Windows 11 installed on it. Only Edge works, and so far I've tried a lot of solutions : -Restart PC -Uninstall, delete files and fresh install both programs -The MSCONFIG thing and unchecking start programs -Every update Windows update recommended me -Entire new windows install, without any linking with my previous pc (which had the same problem two times already, both fixed by returning to a previous version of windows)

I believed it was a ram problem with my previous pc because it was old, but this one is completely new and has the same problem, while there's nothing except my microsoft account that is common to both PCs

I'm completely lost, help me please (writing this on another PC)

I am having trouble with websites thinking my desktop is a mobile. I am trying to upload documents to a Government Department and it won't let me. I tried entering a competition but same result - it thinks I am a mobile. I cannot access my Qantas account or my bank accounts. Firefox must be doing something to block these?

Recently, i believe after i was forced to updated my firefox version, i started having graphical issues with Firefox. At first i thought it was maybe a GPU driver issue so i DDU'd all drivers on my PC and reinstalled them. Did not fix the issue. Tried rolling back Firefox, since thats a pain i only fought with it begging about corrupted bookmarks for a bit before giving up on that, Firefox 99 still did the same thing. Tried the same websites on Chrome and Edge, no issues. deleted all the data i could find for mozella and still the same issues with a fresh install of Firefox 100.0.2. Even trying to load this page drops text, adds colours to places and just overall a pain. I'm unsure if Firefox is kind of like Norton and when you ask it to uninstall it doesn't but are there anymore files to delete besides formatting this PC to get firefox working again? If i have to format the PC i may as well switch back to Chrome or try Edge since again this seems focused on Firefox on this PC.

I'll try to list what i've tried again to be clear: - Updated Graphics Drivers - did not fix - DDU'd graphics drivers and reinstalled - did not fix - Rolled FF to version 100 same issues - Rolled back FF to version 99, did not fix - uninstalled FF and deleted all traces of mozella in all directories, did no fix - Go to same websites in Chrome and Edge, no issues.

Unsure of what to try next besides formatting the PC.

drop-down menu for date cuts off at cibc.com and online.simplii.com

Both online.simplii.com and cibc.com display the same behaviour when selecting a date from a drop-down menu. When the date is 2 digits, the second digit is cut off. (Note: Simplii Financial is owned by CIBC, so I wonder if they use the same code...)

See attached image. In the first line "May 31" has been selected, but it displays "May 3". (Though the form sends the correct "May 31" data.)

To Whom It May Concern,

when browsing on certain websites, some elements take very long to load. Here is an example of the issue: https://puu.sh/J3hYt/1c315cc64a.mp4

On other browsers such as Google Chrome these elements load instantly after clicking on them.

I have uninstalled all addons and accepted all cookies, I also tried to disable hardware acceleration, all to no avail.

Best regards,

Using Windows 11 and want to set Gmail as my mailto option when clicking on email links on websites. Under Firefox/Settings/Mailto I no longer see the option for Gmail, not an expert on technical matters so I have googled the problem but still can't find a solution. Do I need to find an App on Windows or perhaps an Extension within Firefox, feeling completely lost at the moment.

Only happening on the profile/account page is showing up all in spanish. All the other pages for example, this page where we ask our questions, and every other page loads in the correct language that I have it set too English. I am in desperate need since I have to verify suspicious activity and devices but I can't since I do not read or understand another language.

Hi,

I've been looking everywhere to cancel the automatic download of files into the "download" folder when I ONLY need to open them for a short usage from a web page . Now I've got to manually wipe out the "download" folder on my computer... very annoying as now I sometimes don't know which files I've download and which have been put there from a Open only action. Why do I have to use another folder for my download than Firefox for temporary files???

I want to know if Firefox will go back with that stupid idea or if I need to look for another browser?

Thank you

Nicolas
