I normally just use a single firefox window but occassionally when I have multiple monitors I turn one tab (usually youtube) into a new window and put it on my second monitor. The problem is I want all new links to continue open on my original/main window but firefox keeps opening them in the new window. Is there a way to change this behaviour?

Firefox will NOT LET ME assign a downloads folder, and doesn't ever ask where to save (though that IS checked). There is NOTHING the support base or community I can find addressing this. It tells you to check "ask" and or to assign a downloads folder. Well, I Have checked "ask" and it doesn't ask. And it will not let me select a downloads folder.

And all downloads "fail." So I cannot use Firefox io download anything.

This is a bug. The settings do not work.

I have updated to latest version, this has been the case thru multiple versions. I am using a M1 Macbook pro with Monterey OS.

It seems every time I update Firefox they add something else I don't like. Recently, I did the update, and now my tabs are too tall and I can't access my menu, and/or they interfere with the Min and Max l buttons on the top right.

How do I adjust the height of the tabs so they don't go all the way to the top of the browser screen?

My potato pc(amd A8-7600, 8G ram, rx560 2G) is not capable of YouTube vp9 hardware acceleration, but I played 1080p 60fps videos without difficulty using add-ons that force h264 decoding, but the videos started stuttering a while ago. At first, I thought it was add-ons problem, but other than YouTube, too

I used the translation app because I was not good at English

Firefox browser had failed repeatedly when trying to display sections within 2 websites. I receive "Can not load the page" at Blue Cross and Blue Shield and download freezes the page, site and my computer at a credit card company- requiring end task and complete shut down of computer. This has been occurring for 2 months. I do not have any issue loading these sites or sections via Edge or Chrome. Will this be corrected with the name change? Will there be another browser page that is more reliable?

If not, you don’t need to change your name on Firefox browser. You can just close it down and I will move to Edge or Chrome.

None of your Troubleshooting answers on your Support page covers my situation. I have cleared history, verified settings based on internet articles from others with this issue. Please have someone contact me directly. I’m tired of trying to fix this issue with your browser.

Secure Connection Failed On One Computer, but Not Others

I'm running into a very strange issue where on my personal computer, I'm unable to log in to the below website, receiving a "Secure Connection Error." I know normally, this would be a certificate issue on the website's side, but in this case, I don't believe it is. The issue being is I can access the site using Firefox on both my phone and other computers just fine. It just appears to be my desktop having the issue.

Are there any recommendations for fixing this issue? I've attempted clearing browser history, doing fully clean installs of Firefox, other browsers, shutting off my VPN, and DNS flush.

To note: this is a SSO site for logging into Opera products - in my case GameMaker Studio 2. I was, at least, able to login a few weeks ago. I'm using Windows 11, currently fully updated as of writing this. I'm using NordVPN, but so are other systems that allow me to sign in.

I have tried many suggestions from web searches but still have the problem. I have: cleared history, cookies and cache reset firefox turned off firewall (microsoft) then turned it back on turned off proxy I do not have a VPN changed the DNS reset my modem reset my router run internet troubleshooter run in private mode run in safe mode turned off extensions restarted computer reset network settings

I added a VPN and it will work with that running but I prefer not to use it.

this also happens in Opera, Bing and Chrome. I am on Wifi and my son is on ethernet connection and we both have the issue.

Very frustrating. Any other suggestions? Could it be Windows Defender?

Team, I have inadvertently been using 2 different Firefox accounts (for years now), each with one of my primary email addresses. I have a new phone and have been trying to Synchronize both of my laptops to it, thus discovering my problem.

It seems that I have created 2 different Firefox Accounts, each with 1 of my primary email accounts, but both of which have the same profile picture. (Which is why I didn't recognize this before.)

Is there a way to combine my 2 Firefox accounts but keep both of my primary email addresses (thus Merge or Combine, not remove 1)? This will allow both of my 2 laptops have the same configuration and keep all my saved passwords/logins/bookmarks/etc.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

For Reference, my devices are: 2x Windows 11 Laptops 1x Android Smartphone.

I've been using Firefox for years without any problem and some weeks ago I started noticing that when I'm on Linux, Firefox freezes when loading some websites (but it does not always do). I think it usually happens when my laptop uses the dedicated GPU (but I'd say that not exclusively).

I tried checking with Troubleshoot Mode to see if it happened too and unfortunately Firefox was also freezing randomly sometimes.

This is not something caused by a corrupted installation as using another user profile solves the problem. There's also no logs at about:crash. When it happens, the only thing I can do is kill the process. It's not like everything freezes but when certain website keeps loading I notice that the mouse icon does not get updated when hovering buttons and if I go to another tab and search or try to load another website, it simply does not work, it takes some seconds and then I just see a spinning wheel (from Firefox itself, not the website)

Could it be caused by any about:config changes? I mean I have changed a lot of things there following Arkenfox's user.js but had no trouble until some weeks ago. I'll try disabling privacy.resistFingerprinting. Thanks in advance

I haven't yet found the correct configuration to do this.

What I want is: 1. History should either not be saved, or alternatively auto-deleted after a certain time (e.g. only keep history of the past hour), or as a last resort get deleted when closing the browser. 2. I want to keep the ability to restore recently closed tabs. I realize this is a bit in conflict to not having a history, but just remembering the last few closed tabs would be enough, or all tabs closed in the last few minutes. 3. When I restart the browser, I want it to restore my previously open tabs 4. I want to keep cookies and logins (i.e. not get logged out everywhere, and have the cookie dialogues after restarting the browser). 5. Not super important, but ideally I want to keep my saved favicons/website logos in the bookmarks and on the new tab page.

So basically I just want to way for the history to be empty or automatically pruned, without sanitizing any other data on exit or browsing in a kind of permanent private mode.

Thank you in advance!

I usually have two Ff sessions goins; one regular for sites I log on to and a Private for casual browsing.

It would be great if I could set the Private session to always accept cookies and not prompt me, but the two modes don't seem to be separated in the settings.

Is there a work-around (or possibly a plug-in) that could solve this?

Hello,

On MacOS 14.0(Sonoma) Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), facing the problem with web.whatsapp.com chat messages. The timestamps for the messages are displayed in UTC and not as per the system time(IST, in my case).

- web telegram shows correct timestamps, opened in same browser session - web whatsapp on Chrome shows correct timestamps - fingerprinting is set to false(was not touched at all).

Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks. -Sachin
