After I have been using Firefox for about an hour, the space bar stops working. I'm only able to type one word. This happens in all the Firefox boxes where one can type, as well as in Duck Duck Go search box, really any open app. If I quit Firefox and re-open, the problem disappears until another hour has past. I do not have this problem with Safari or Pages, Notes, really any other app I use on my Mac. I am using a 2020 Mac Mini with an M1 chip, MacOS Ventura 13.0.1. My Firefox is up to date 107.0.1(64 bit). I'm using a Logitech K811 keyboard.

Please allow me to preface with I do not know how to code at all and I have found some options to make the scroll bar disappear, but with coding, and I'm hoping for an option that takes that away easily.

I don't think it is any of my extensions causing this, and I don't think it's an option in Firefox to remove the scroll bar.

Please help if possible! It doesn't disappear even when I'm watching videos on fullscreen.

Thank you.

I'm using one website which demands a new password every three months. That would be easy if the Firefox automatic generation of a new secure password worked with this site but it doesn't. Firefox thinks that both the Password and Confirm Password fields are asking for a username instead. Obviously I can take this up with with the website owner too -- but is there any other means of generating an obscure password when Firefox won't do it? An app? A Firefox plug-in?

Hi, Since I updated Firefox to 107.0.1 there is a weird glitch... Although all my passwords are indeed saved, they do not appear when I call up preferences/Privacy & Security/ and click on "Saved Logins..." to display them.

In a way it's secure that they don't appear... but I often need to look up a password when I am using another device to log into a site. Is there some setting I am overlooking? When I click on Saved Logins, the entire page under "about:logins" is empty. Just the bars at the top to search, and a big empty list under "Sort by: Name A-Z"

Please help! I hoped that the glitch would be fixed in an update, but I do get nervous thinking that I might lose all saved logins...

I'm on a Mac, os Big Sur 11.7.1 (20G918)

Thanks! Glenn Dochtermann

Hi, Today I have spent a lot of time on Mozilla trying to find solutions. On logging out of any of my Amazon accounts (including KDP) I get an error on the page saying error I cannot log out of any site on Amazon. This is the first time I have encountered a problem. I have tried resetting my password, which was a disaster. Mozilla, when I enter the new password, it does not recognize the current password until I try again. Then it recognizes the password as old and not new. It is a shambles. I have been locked out twice and still have no solution and now I have 2 problems and not just one.

I did a bit of research but the information was outdated (2015) about such a problem previously.

12.7.22 I've recently upgraded to OS12 on mac. Browsers now also updated. Some minor differences in interfaces. Something buggy about Firefox initial opening page shows boxes with History visited sites logos for quick reference to sign in to various pre-visited sites. These have always appeared even on previous versions. However on this latest version, the container box for the site logos is same but the logos within the boxes is much smaller. Like floating in the boxes. Must be some way to solve this making the site logos larger within container boxes. Screenshot of current problem. Unfortunately don't have one of last FF version I think v78.?.? thanks Larry

For the past few weeks Firefox is constantly crashing on me - mostly tabs, but sometimes the whole app. There doesn't seem to be a particular site it crashes on - sometimes video, sometimes twitter, sometimes just WaPo.

I've tried safe mode, I've refreshed the browser, I've even removed the data folder+deleted the app and reinstalled. Nothing helps. Looking for any insights before I'm forced over to Chrome?

A few of the most recent crashes:

Good Evening,

I am writing from a University, we have a managed environment with updates being rolled out, and we have yet to require the update to 107.01

A prof did so recent had firefox update to 107.01 and ran "Refresh Firefox" and seems to not preserve bookmarks, and it puts the data into "Old Firefox Data" on his desktop.

Not commonly using Firefox as my daily driver for a browser, I ensured I had 107.01 and imported some of my bookmarks, and then ran a refresh of Firefox, and it seems to not preserve bookmarks, and puts the profile guts into the "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop. So I seem to be able to reproduce his problem, and I'm puzzled by it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for conditions that would cause this? Is there a way I can log what "Refresh Firefox" is doing and getting hung up on to not preserve Bookmarks etc? I did "Verify Integrity" for "Places" and it didn't produce any errors that I could see.

Many thanks Thomas

Hello all, just yesterday I noticed my Yahoo inbox was not fully loading and even when it finished loading, I have had the same few messages showing, a series of just gray bars below that, no ads, etc. and will not allow me to delete or perform commands. When I check the box by an email it simply takes me to the email, as happens if I do so before it's fully finished loading. It is as if it is still trying to load somewhere in the ether land, since there is no indication on my toolbar that it's working. I've tried everything except removing it from Firefox. I thought it was my internet service but all is fine with other sites and Yahoo mail works fine on Safari. It's never happened before. Many thanks for your help.

I run Parallels on my Macbook 14" and have downloaded both Mac and Windows verison of Firefox. In Windows verison I can close the active TAB I'm currently in by clicking on the X, however Mac version does not allow this. I must select another TAB and then close the orginal one I wanted to close.

The same is true for the refresh button, in Mac the button is not active but in Windows it is.
