Several questions posted over several years about stopping floating videos. No credible responses. Please STOP ghosting me ! YES or NO ! It's one of the two ! If the competence at Mozilla doesn't exist, intestinal fortitude not present, interest, or there has been a bribe paid to ignore floating video issues -- please let me know ! I can handle the answer -- I promise you. If the answer is NO -- FF is gone on my machines. ONE OR THE OTHER ! Which is it !!! If you don't know -- type nothing and DO NOT waste my time again...

Oh, this is obnoxious. I don't want to use Forums or Community whatever to report this problem. UGH

It doesn't happen with Chrome, so something is wrong with Firefox. Every other update seems to break that website. Whenever I go to comment, the links don't do what they're supposed to do. When I submit a comment, Firefox just spins forever, and I refresh the page and see that my comment did indeed post. For every friggin' comment? UUUUUGH! From trying to see the Pending posts to simply clicking 'Load more comments', everything is broken in that section of articles.

I can manage to see pending posts if I toggle the 'Sort by' to something else, but I can't see all the comments because clicking on 'Load more comments' just sits there doing nothing. Sometimes there are comments and Firefox acts like there are none. I double checked by using Chrome and could see everything.

What's wrong with Firefox? It's getting so convoluted, I'm having a tough time wanting to use it anymore, and I've been using this browser for a long, long time.

I don't feel like showing any images of this, because you can't see what isn't available to be seen. Oh, and if one more green tech tells me to clear my cookies & cache, I'm going to pull the rest of my hair out, and it's hard to grab because it's disappearing on me ... hahahahaha. If that's the problem, then why don't I have to do that with Chrome? Is Firefox stepping on itself? Clearing that makes me have to login to a crap-load of websites and isn't a catch-all solution. Like the old ctrl-alt-del to fix frozen computers; BAD IDEA!

Hello all, I have searched everywhere and tried all the suggestions but being a little visual challenged I have a terrible time viewing all this light grey txt I'm getting on the newer Firefox. Some versions back I could just install a windows classic theme that replaced everything and made txt easy to read, but today that theme no longer works due to Firefox updates. Yes I can use a High Contrast theme that helps some but it looks Butt Ugly and is annoying. I'm sure a lot of other folks are having this problem from all the messages I'm reading about the problem. Is there a sure way to get BLACK text on my screen? If not maybe it's time that Firefox gets an update that fixes this issue. I would appreciate any help you folks can give me. Regards,

There was already such a question, but it is in the archive and the answers previously given to it by technical support are no longer relevant (the browser.proton.enabled parameter no longer exists). How to return separators as lines in favorites? It's terribly annoying when it's just extended spaces. Not everyone has a perfectly developed eye gauge.

I'm using and old operating system on my computer, and the latest version of Firefox seems to overtax my graphics card, even with the most mundane websites and functions. So, I had to downgrade versions to the one just previous to today's update to even get here. However, it makes you create a new profile instead of using an existing one. Is there some way to get around this?

"What precisely does “sync” mean with respect to transferring Firefox information between devices?

I’ve not had much success with my online searches to learn the details about what takes place when Firefox syncs browser information across devices. To keep things simple, assume I interested only in syncing bookmarks and staying within the Firefox environment, i.e., no syncing to another browser. Please note that I am NOT asking for help in setting up Sync on different devices or in how to turn Sync on and off. Rather I am seeking help to understand what “sync” means, that is, the details of the sort of information transfers that take place between individual devices and the Firefox Sync server.

Here’s what I currently understand. After signing in to my Firefox account on Device 1, setting up syncing on that device, specifying that I want only bookmarks to be synced, and turning syncing on, the set of bookmarks on Device 1 is sent to be stored on a Firefox server. After that, whenever one is signed in to the Firefox account on Device 1 and syncing is turned on, any changes to the bookmarks on Device 1 will "automatically" (but I don't know how quickly) end up being reflected in the set of bookmarks stored on the server. Fine so far.

In addition to Device 1 I have another device, Device 2 which has not been set up for Firefox Sync. It has its own set of bookmarks. Some of them are also on Device 1, some are not. I sign into my Firefox account on Device 2 and set up syncing on it. I follow the steps for doing this in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-sync-my-computer, “Connect additional devices to Sync.” I then click Sync Now. OK, now what happens?

1A. Do the bookmarks in Device 2 get added to the bookmarks stored in the Firefox Sync server? 1B. Do the bookmarks NOT in Device 2 get deleted from the bookmarks stored in the Firefox Sync server?

OR

2A. Do the bookmarks stored in the Firefox Sync server get added to the bookmarks in Device 2? 2B. Do the bookmarks NOT stored in the Firefox Sync server get deleted from the bookmarks in Device 2?

After whatever transfers of bookmark between Device 2 and the Firefox Sync server take place, and assuming that I’m still signed in to my Firefox account on Device 1 and that syncing on that device is still turned on, what sort of transfers of bookmarks takes place between the new set of bookmarks stored in the Firefox Sync server and the set of bookmarks already on Device 1?

3A. Do the bookmarks then present in the Firefox Sync server get added to the bookmarks in Device 1? 3B. Do the bookmarks no longer in the Firefox Sync server get deleted from the bookmarks in Device 1?

Finally, what happens to the set of bookmarks in Device 1 and Device 2 if I’m simultaneously signed in to my Firefox account, syncing is turned on in both Devices 1 and 2, and a bookmark is a) added to either device OR b) deleted from either device?

I’m sorry this message is so long, but I’ve wanted to be clear about the things I don’t understand in regard to Firefox Sync. I’d really appreciate what anyone can say to help me clarify these points. Thanks so much.

I am trying to login into my account on Payhip, an online store platform. On the login page, there is no recaptcha box. I log in. On the next page, I get an error saying I didn't confirm I'm not a robot. I can log in just fine on my phone. This is happening in the web browser. I contacted Payhip and they say there's nothing they can do, on their end the recaptcha is working just fine, it's done through Google. They told me to log in another day and see if it clears up. It hasn't. I cleared cookies, I used the site in troubleshooting mode (same problem), I turned off enhanced tracking protection to see if I was blocking something, and again, nothing changed. Any ideas, anyone?

My WIN7 computer RAM/CPU is being totally overwhelmed by about 5 to 15 times too many process instances that are probably due to Fission (that I have already set Fission autostart to false) and/or a contributing factor may be that there are 3 instances of Firefox showing up in my Default Programs when only 1 instance shows up for everything else.

Hope you can help with this Firefox browser situation because I really would hate to have to rely on an Internet browser provided by the corruptible rich of this country/world.

Please provide some relief as soon as you can.

TIA, Tim
