Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Target.com, chase.com, and some other websites that I can't think of right now don't work when trying to login with Firefox for Windows, but works fine with Chrome, Edge, my phone, apps, etc.

Target gives a message "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again" Chase loads a white overlay with a blue button and the login screen that loads after to try again looks completely broken and missing text.

Been having issues like this for a while. Firefox is up to date. I've tried wiping cookies and clearing the cache. Tried Firefox on my phone, and didn't have an issue with Target.

current version 83.0 (64bit)

Any ideas?

Multi-Account Containers have a drop-down control to give access to things like container preferences for a site. With Firefox 83 (basic and developer editions) this drop down is hidden behind the main browser window. You can just make out the top of the control - but the bulk of the control is being placed behind the main browser content.

Using macos 10.14.6 and Firefox 83. Latest edition of Multi-Account Container add-on.

Is there a way fix this?

Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Hello,

excuse me, this is a translation.

Could you tell me, please, if there is finally a solution for the bookmarks that are in gray and not yellow as before, because gray is very unpleasant and if possible we can change the color of the bookmarks, thank you.

Cordially.

As the title says, a couple of days ago I noticed that all progress bars in YouTube thumbnails have disappeared. The "Watched" text is also gone. I tried clean reinstall, removing all add-ons, but it did not help. Just to check, I installed Chrome - everything visible (see image - FF left, Chrome right), which would suggest that something is up with Firefox. I also check the history settings on YouTube, everything is turned on, and I see viewing progress in thumbnails when I'm on the history settings page, but not on "normal" YouTube.

I would appreciate any sort of help or advice. My life doe snot depend on this feature, but I really like it and it helps navigate YouTube more efficiently.

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?

I need to send my PC to the vendor (FNAC) for reparation. I want to clean my confidential files before sending it. Concerning firefox : how to desinstal it from my PC only, and reinstall it after repair with all the previous parameters and setting already installed ( list of passwords, ...)

said differently, I don't want to cancel it definitly because I use it on another computer and I want to recover it after my PC repair.

If you can help me I will really appreciate

Hello,

In Windows 8, after updating to Firefox 83.0 64-bit, when I open any web page, the following error message appears:

X Display driver stopped responding and has recovered Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

And then:

X Application has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware Application Firefox.exe has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware.

In device manager, I updated the driver and it stated the driver is up to date.

Should I revert back to 82.0.3?

I'm having a problem where when i watch youtube videos they don't properly load the video as im watching, it will load a tiny part to just then stop the video and load for ages without really coming anywhere. I got this problem probably a few days ago and it seems to only be when i watch videos via youtube on firefox, i tried with chrome and it works fine. I have tested my network speeds when this has happened and they are normal, looking at any other video site/streaming site it is working all fine. I have tried with some steps i found when looking for a solution. These steps are to turn of hardware acceleration or clear the cache, i have tried turning the hardware acceleration off and so far (only tested it for 5 min) it seems to be working and i have not cleared my cache as i have a fresh install of windows and firefox. I would like to be able to have hardware acceleration on because i use the browser a lot while playing games or working and i use multiple tabs and instances and it would benefit me more with it on. Something i also have seen and checked is updates for drivers, everything is up to date.

Anyone know any fix or if it is a problem for others or anything that could help?
