Foxfire behaves incorrectly when playing chess on lichess.com. This is a popular chess playing site that hosts online chess games between logged in players. When a game challenge is accepted, it presents a chess board and a clock that should start immediately counting down white's remaining time. Instead, with Foxfire, the clock starts when the first move is made by white.

The above behavior only occurs on Foxfire. On Edge, Google Chromium, and Opera, it works correctly. This is of little significance to most players, but I have observed it for a long time on Foxfire--maybe as long a two years. I have not reported it before because I can easily work around the problem. The workaround is obviously to switch away from Foxfire when playing chess on lichess.com.

Just thought someone there ought to know about this Foxfire abnormality.

I see that there was a new version loaded yesterday so don't know if this relates. Starting today, when I open Firefox, it opens in a small screen in the upper left corner. I want it to open in full screen. I have to click twice to get the full screen. I do not mean the screen that F11 gives since I still want my tabs at the bottom. I have Windows 10 and Firefox 103.0.2.

I realize that this is an annoyance that has a workaround. I just want what I had yesterday. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

First off, I have only ever used Firefox in English. I don't speak enough of any other language well enough to do otherwise. I booted up my gaming PC today and opened Firefox, and the language on my menus, bookmarks toolbar, and almost all Firefox UI has randomly changed to what looks like it might be Greek. I can't change it back. It looks from the settings page that the selected language is English, but again I don't speak or read Greek so I have no idea what's going on here. I've run a virus scan, nothing came up. I tried clearing the Firefox startup cache, that didn't help. It's only the Firefox menus that are in Greek, webpages are still showing up in English like they should.

Can somebody help me fix this please? I use Firefox as my main browser on all of my PCs and I don't want to have to switch to using Chrome on one of them. Thanks!

Hello,

First to clarify, this is a Firefox issue, because every other browser does not have the same issue.

I've tried audios from different websites such as spotify, twitch, instagram, youtube, facebook, netflix, amazon prime.... And the audio are failling, There is audio in the video but it is like when your internet is pretty bad and the audio is not working properly.

I've tried removing all addons, clearing the entire cache and cookier - re-installing firefox. none of the above worked.

'Clear Data' Tab Not Reseting To '0KB'

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 103.0.1 Private Browsing Mode ('Never Remember History' is set)

What I Did:

-'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.' -When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not reset to zero (It used to clear completely). -The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

Issue Started: The morning (Pacific time) of June 26 (Before then, clicking 'Clear Data' reset the KB to 0 without having to close and reopen the browser first, without having to 'refresh' the page after clearing the cache, and without having to restart the computer first.

Someone stated that PB mode has be left temporarily and the disk cache has to be cleared in 'Regular Mode' by choosing 'Custom Setting For History' and removing the check-mark beside 'Always use Private Browsing mode.

1. I do not see the option Always use Private Browsing mode.' 2. Am I performing these steps before a 'session' is started 'OR' after a session (but before closing the browser?). 3: Do the above steps have to be performed after 'every 'session is ended or only the first time that the 'session' is ended? A:

Under 'Cookies and Site Data,' it states: 'In permanent private browsing mode, cookies and site data will always be cleared when Firefox is closed' but this simply is not true 'unless' I am missing a detail?

All of this unnecessary 'effort' just to clear 100% of the disk cache, after every session, that should be as simple as clicking 'Clear Data.'

HELP!

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

Something is forcing closure of Firefox periodically (about once a week or so?). This happens whether I have Firefox open or not. If I have Firefox open at the time, the browser closes then reopens at a Microsoft Bing search page ("...goose...") and all the other pages I had open have disappeared. If it happened when the browser was not already open, the next time I open it the home page has been reset as above. As far as I can see, nothing else in my settings has been changed, but I have to go in and manually reenter my usual desired homepage. Are you doing this, is Microsoft doing this, or is some other interloper causing this? Do you know any way I can find out and stop it?
