When I start Firefox for the first time, and click Bookmarks, it takes a little while to respond and populate the bookmarks list.

I've created a video to show the problem. You'll see that when I clicked Bookmarks, it becomes unresponsive for a sec or so before slowly populating the list.

I'm not sure when it started, but it was recently. What can I try to troubleshoot it? It behaves the same way in Firefox Safe Mode.

Since some weeks (possibly after the latest firefox update) Firefox doesn't show videos on the website 'welt.de'. I hear the sound, but don't see the video. Other sites work fine (facebook, youtube, etc.) only on welt.de appears this problem. I tried to fix it but no success. What may be the problem?

hello! I am trying to play Prime Video. the message i get reads, "a later version of Mozilla Firefox is required for Prime Video. To update, click the menu button on the web browser toolbar, click Help, About Firefox and then click Restart. So i did go through those steps but when i get to the last stage, there is no "click restart button" for me to restart. i would like to play amazon prime video but I'm told am update is required. I do get a message with a green check mark saying Mozilla Firefox is up to date, but no option to click restart. it also says 90.0.2 (64 bit) any help would be wonderful! thank you! (my computer has windows 8.)

I want to get rid of adblock which I installed as an add on.

It doesnt work very well for my browsing needs and is continually getting in the way with selling pleas.

So how to get rid of it ? I do see that I can get a list in firefox of installed add-ins, so why cant I click on a delete delete button alongside the add-ins that I don't want ?

I have been using Yahoo email and Firefox together for years, and just this week I am unable to attach a file to an outgoing message. When I hit the "paper clip" to attach the screen goes to the File Explorer like usual to browse for the file, but it just sits there and spins. Then it says "not responding" on the top left at the Firefox icon.

I tried it in Chrome and had no problem at all.

Anybody got a clue?

Thanks

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

Certain websites font's have gone weird in Firefox, it's not reproducable on other computers just my own.

I have looked through this community and run through:

   Set gfx.canvas.azure.backends & gfx.content.azure.backends to direct2d1.1,skia,cairo
   Set gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode to 0
   Set gfx.downloadable_fonts.otl_validation to true
   Disabled hardware acceleration

Firefox Version is: 90.0.2 64-bit Windows 10 21H1 All drivers are up to date

Attached are screenshots from Chrome (what the website is meant to look like) & Firefox - I prefer Firefox over Chrome so I would rather not move.

So after wiping my system for a fresh windows install, I pulled out the backup.json4 and recovery.json4 from my backup drive and plopped it in place of sessionstore.json4

And all of my tabs and windows came back! So far so good!

But then after closing some tabs and moving things around, when I close the session out again, it doesn't update the sessionstore file, or any of the stuff in the backup folder to reflect those changes.

When I open firefox again it starts as a session with all my windows/tabs after the file-replace.

I use firefox for managing tutorial videos, which involves separating them into different windows/tab arrangements, so any tips on how to resolve this issue and get firefox to start updating the sessionstore would be appreciated.

Thank you!
