Hi, for the past few Firefox releases, I run into a problem where the mouse cursor does not change into a "hand" when hovering over something clickable. Instead, it continues to keep its arrow form. This is not simply a cosmetic issue, as it appears to cause issues with websites that rely on hovering for drop-down menus, as well as clicking on YouTube videos, for example.

The issue briefly resolves itself when I restart or reset Firefox, but it always comes back within a few hours. I have also tried disabling all extensions to see if there is any improvement.

Firefox since 102 or 103 has a giant issues with gifs, movies ect after resuming from hibernation. In the Dev mode there are errors like this:

MediaLoadExhaustedCandidates = no any media can be loaded

Why does it happen only in firefox? Even in FF 120 Windows.

Hello,

I made a download 10 months ago, it failed OK.

But every other week that same old download keeps on restarting and failing.. its some kindof bug.

It then piles up with all failed downloads from the last year and they all try to load again and again automatically.

I tried to reinstall firefox and all but its a weird bug.

I have screenshots if needed.

Best regards

I followed the instructions at [[Unload inactive tabs to save system memory in Firefox|https://mzl.la/3AdRbLx]] but I still occasionally see the tab refresh when I select it. I start with a search on Bing, click an article to open a tab, follow links from there, back to the first tab and select another. I repeat this until there are several tabs open. Sometimes the page refreshes when I switch back to one that I previously reviewed. Is that controlled by the option browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory? if so, it doesn't appear to be working. [Edit] - The last time this happened I checked my system and found 10gig used of 64gig installed. I'm using the most current version of FF 120.0.1 on Windows 11 Pro v 22H2.

Dear FF/Mozilla:

I've experienced a number of issues where I'm unable to do banking transactions using the FF browser. In one case, Wells Fargo bill pay does not work (but works fine with MS Edge); in another case, an international money link payment to a vendor in the UK would not go through using Firefox (but did first time with MS Edge). In yet another case, Firefox won't load webpage photos for items for sale on the site www.telescope.com - the page loads with descriptions but photos would not load (I just tried it and, nada). This remains the case even after my VPN is disconnected.

I've used FF for several years now without too much trouble but with this ongoing non-functionality of FF, I'm tempted to migrate to MS Edge or a browser that is supported more widely.

Any help or advice? Thanks, Blaine

When I receive important gmail emails, I get notifications both sound and a popup in the lower-right corner, even if no Firefox window reaches that spot. Next to that popup X there's a ⋯ button and clicking it has 2 settings options and neither of those leads to something which could point to how I get notified. In about:config I entered "gmail" and got "extensions.webextensions.ExtensionStorageIDB.migrated.checkerplusforgmail@jasonsavard.com" but it's not showing in enabled extension.

How can I dis/enable it and possibly change the settings of what notifies me of important gmail emails?

Thank you kindly for your help

I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?

Until the most recent update, which came along with a Microsoft update, I was able to stream Peacock.com but now I'm getting an error message that my system configuration isn't compatible with Peacock. I have also had issues with YouTube, which keeps telling me that I have to disable adblockers - which I'm not running. I had another unrelated problem that I fixed by doing a system restore to before the Microsoft update, so there should be no issues with that end of things. It has to be Firefox because I can still stream Peacock on Microsoft Edge.

So, does ANYONE have any idea how I can fix this problem? I much prefer using Firefox to Edge and I don't use Chrome.

Thanks.

My ISP had provided the IPv6 service, edge/chrome/vivaldi are all IPv6 first and working well. Only firefox insists use IPv4, although it could also pass the IPv6 test on https://test-ipv6.com, and the internal test on https://detectportal.firefox.com/success.txt?ipv6 It leads to some webpage extremely slow, even could not be accessed.

I've tried privacy mode, but the problem is still there. IPv6 in about:config is enabled, all related options are default. Is this a bug, or if there is any way could fix it by some special settings?

Waiting for your help, thanks.

Dear Community,

Just like to ask how I could get Firefox to show a dark mode for all apps that I open, please? I know that changing the settings on Firefox to Dark makes the browser show only a dark mode. However, when I search for other sites, they show up as a white background. How can I change this, please?
