Hello,

I was having trouble logging in because I thought I had disconnected my authentication app, but I eventually found it (so I am able to log in now). Before I figured this out, however, I tried to use my recovery key to log in. I found the text file that had my recovery key '[Email] Firefox Recovery Key.txt' (from 2019) and when I tried to use this, it didn't work. I noticed that the recovery page asks for a recovery 'code' instead of 'key' and when I was able to log in, it said I had never set up a Recovery Key.

Just wanted to flag the issue in case there's a reason why old Recovery Keys no longer work. It certainly could have been my error, but since I had the file, it seemed like it should've worked.

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!

Sometime in the last 2-3 months, it has become impossible for me to use Firefox and Zoom concurrently on my Macbook Pro (2015). When I open a Firefox window during a Zoom meeting my meeting lags, almost freezes, and I get a beautiful spinning Mac rainbow. Eventually this subsides and I can exit Firefox and Zoom returns to function as usual. I am able to pair Chrome and Zoom together with no trouble. I would like to go back to using Firefox, but have had to temporarily switch to Zoom.

Any advice about how to get these two programs to play nice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I recently started having a problem composing an email message when using Windows Live Mail and wondered if anyone has experienced the same issue. Another person on the Microsoft Help Forum reported the same issue, also using Firefox. The issue is that while composing an email, the window suddenly jumps back to the Inbox. It is very intermittent so a little difficult to test out with other browsers I hate using. Another issue which does seem to be only happening with Firefox is inability to open attachments on the first try.

Hello, A few months ago, Firefox has not been loading Youtube videos properly. The video just never loads. Debugging steps I have done.

1) Disabled Hardware Acceleration 2) Deleted all cookies & cache 3) Ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode 4) Uninstalled Firefox & Reinstalled 5) Not a part of my debug but I recently did a fresh install of windows on my computer and installed Firefox with the same issue. I do get videos to work on both Edge and Chrome

I am at a loss at this point and any helping hints would be useful. I have an inkling that it might be put to my playback device but it wouldn't explain why it plays just fine on other browsers.

Any ideas?

I did not like installing apps from firefox add-ons but loved installing applications from firefox marketplace when it was there back then. It made me feel productive as it was the app store of an OS ,which was also there back then. But why was it discontinued? If there is any reason, please reply and If possible, please try recreating it. Here are the new firefox marketplace icons I suggest which I got from the web archive. Each icon is larger than the previous one. And if possible, please work on firefox OS too.

When adding a bookmark on Firefox Desktop, putting a bookmark in a folder when adding it becomes cumbersome when one has a lot of bookmark folders and sub-folders. What I mean by that is that the user has to scroll a lot to find the folder they want to put their bookmarks in. It takes too much time. My suggestions for improvement:

  1. Allow the user to resize the "Add bookmark window" so that they can quickly spot the folder they're looking for. The ideal would be to have the possible to maximize the "add folder" pop-up/window just like the one we have when we click on "Manage bookmarks" (Ctrl-Shift-O). This would be much faster.
  2. Provide a search bar to quick search for the folder/sub-folder we want to put our bookmark in.

Dear Firefox community

I wonder if anybody else is experiencing problems with O’Reilly recently. I think the problem started more or less 2 weeks ago. The problem is that the page is not loaded at once, but more "on demand," that is, it loads once we scroll down (fig. oreilly_firefox_01). It takes like 1s or 2s to load to load the rest of the text (fig. oreilly_firefox_02). Maybe it's related with the last Firefox update. With Chrome it works as expected.

It's not a big issue, just annoying.

Hello,

I downloaded firefox app on my android phone and noticed that the browser or pages are brown in color. I am not computer savvy so I don't exactly know how it arrived that way. But I love it and I would like to have it on my laptop.

I have vision problems and I am photo sensitive. I eyes hurt bad, so much that tears run down my face and my nose run while trying to use the computer. Is this brown screen available for laptop. If so how would I access it.

Thank you,

When there is a form to fill out in Firefox, whenever I fill it out and press "refresh", the things that I wrote still stay there.

It is weird because it used to do this but now no longer does.

Currently using FF v94.0.1 64-bit (I usually lag an update or two behind to ensure stability -- my highest priority -- and avoid surprises.)


1) I notice that unless there are a sufficient number of tabs opened across a browser window as stretched to a given width, thus triggering the left-right ("<" , ">") tab-scroll arrows to appear, the TAB MENU itself (aka "List all tabs" button, a "v" down-arrow on the far right) is not present. Nor is there an equivalent way to initiate a tab search within the main MENU BAR (FILE, EDIT, VIEW, etc.) that I could find. This restricts access to the SEARCH TABS feature.

This "automatically keep-it-tidy feature" is not really an issue when only a single browser window is open. However, I have many windows (on different topics of interest), each with many tabs.

I can switch to another browser window that has enough open tabs to have triggered the TAB MENU, then search from there. Or I can use the address bar "%" method).

(Actually, I'm pleasantly surprised that Firefox, running on my older PC, is stable with hundreds of tabs open as accumulated over many months. Clearly I should change my habits!)


2) On your support page titled "Search open tabs in Firefox" at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-open-tabs-firefox , it describes (via examples) using the "List all tabs"/TAB MENU button to access the "Search Tabs" feature. It also outlines using the address bar "%" method.

Unless I misread the article, what it does not make clear, is that the "Search Tabs" feature works the same as "% xyz" in the address bar; whereas using "%xyz" (note the missing space) yields different results (apparently the same as "xyz %"; but "xyz%" yields nothing). Nor does it explain the reason for the different results or the importance/desirability/weirdness of using one method over the other -- it simply presents the examples. I believe this help page could use some expansion/clarification.


3) I noticed that when performing "search tabs" via either the address bar (using "%") or via the TAB MENU, the results do not include any open tabs using "containers" (apparently the same as any open tabs within "private" windows).

I am increasingly using the "container" features by opening then permanently assigning many "sensitive" web sites to one of the container categories. The increased security is a nice idea.

However, with many browser windows open, each with many tabs, this inability to search for and conveniently find open tabs is increasingly frustrating and is nudging me back towards NOT using containers.

Can't some solution be found to maintain the privacy between tabs (and perhaps even private windows) while permitting a tab search to work more thoroughly?


In summary, I simply want to be able to find ALL occurrences of any partial string of searched-for text within ALL tabs in either their title OR address, normal AND container tabs, and preferably in normal AND private windows.

At present I see only a list of 12 results and no means of listing more. Sometimes my "known" open (normal/non-container) tab is not present in that short list (perhaps a preference/sort order is needed for tab titles vs. addresses).

Why not a "List more results", or a selector button to scroll-list "10, 20, 40, 100, ALL", or a button to open and continue with a listing of ALL matching results in a separate pop-up window, etc?


Thanks for all your good and hard work!
