Or has Toastmasters lost control of their website?

Hello, I'm reposting this question in better topic. After loading Firefox to 87.0 Now when I click on a "contact" button from a site I get 'courrier' from Microsoft. How can I get my xxx@free.fr address (zimbra mail) instead. Help from mozilla doesn't help me! Years ago the same problem was solved with a button on the first opening of the mail box.

Hello Hello,


I have an addon that makes my bookmarks open in new background tabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-bookmarks-in-a-new-tab/). This works in all but one instance. If I am already on the "New Tab" page, the bookmark opens in that tab. Is there any way to make the bookmark open in a background tab while I am on the new tab page? Thanks!

Ever since I updated my firefox version the search bar will be missing random letters when I type them, or the suggestions will be missing letters. However this is only a visual bug, since pressing enter will search for what I typed. I've restarted and reinstalled but its still like this. Just wondering if anyone has a fix. See attached images.

I just had to system-restore my PC and when I redownloaded firefox, all of my settings/toolbars/bookmarks were gone. I thought hitting "sync now" would restore them from my Firefox account and it did nothing. I've kept the same bookmarks and saved passwords through at least three machines, I don't know what I did wrong or why it isn't working now. I'm afraid that hitting "sync now" has just overwritten all of my stored data instead of restoring it as I thought it would. Please help.

I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

For some reason, many (but not all) websites I go to in firefox open at the bottom of the page. I think the problem might be related to my mouse/scroll settings, but if so, I can't find a solution.

Is there possibly a registry setting which I can look at?

Thanks!

Hi,

When I load google photos, Firefox is able to display the first few rows of photos fine, but as I scroll, the remaining images don't load. I've tried all the usual things, like disabling protection, restarting in safe mode and even clearing cookies.

Is there any way to fix this?

Hi, I've just reinstalled Windows on my computer and I've logged in to Firefox to sync my bookmarks. My bookmarks from my previous Firefox install are still in the folder marked "Bookmarks Toolbar", but when I try to show the toolbar itself they are nowhere to be found. When I try to customize my browser layout I can't find the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" and instead the "Import bookmarks" option is available. I can't seem to get my bookmarks into the toolbar itself.

Hi folks I had great problems logging in to my Barclays account on line via Firefox. Eventually I had to request Barclay's assistance and it turned out that Firefox was not compatable with their website .. I used Chrome and this worked perfectly.

The same has now happened with Viality Health.

Have any other folk experienced these (or similar) problems?

I would have liked to get Firefox to comment but cant find a relevant contact email.

Otherwise I find it a great browser and prefer to use this as it seems to represent the 'alternative' company.

Stay well

Ralph

The latest version of firefox 87.0 does not allow the drop down arrows or autofill to work either on webpages or in firefox. For example in the section "which topic best describes your question?" it would flash the drop down menu but not open it nor allow me to select an option since it opened and closed so quickly. I was able to up the keyboard arrow keys to scroll thru in this case. Same for autofill-addresses, passwords and so forth. The option flashes on the screen for a milisecond and then disappears. Sometimes the arrow keys on the key board will work, other times nothing works.

This only happens on firefox, not on Chrome.

Suddenly my right click mouse button doesn't work with dropdown boxes (so for example above when I needed to select the topic I had to use my arrow key) .The choices, or different logins pop up for a second but I can't select one.
