Problem: After this morning's update to 88.01 64-bit, magnet links do not work What I've tried: Found instructions online for resetting using about:config, but it's not working because the right click isn't bringing up the menu to allow me to create a new protocol and even after setting network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet to false, right clicking the magnet link doesn't let me choose a program. It just brings up the regular right-click windows menu. TIA for your help.

Hey folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

The title pretty much sums it up. When I right click on a link to select "open link in new tab" (or other selection), the menu seems to open just beneath the cursor causing an instantaneous selection (usually opens a new tab). I've tried using the browser without any extensions and the problem keeps occurring (just happened now when I tried to select the correct spelling for occurring).

This only seems to happen with Firefox.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

For a long time this scenario has worked fine.... I have multiple tabs open, we'll just say A & B. In Tab A I click something I know will generate a pop up on this page in a while, but I manually swap to Tab B to start working on something else. When the pop up appears in Tab A, I can see the text of the tab go bold, and my view remains on Tab B so I can continue as I want.

But now suddenly, when I switch to Tab B, once that pop up appears in Tab A my view is forcibly changed to Tab A instantly. Pretty inconvenient since it interrupts what I'm doing in Tab B.

How can I go back to the original behavior?

YouTube does not work properly.

Before I start, I must mention that I have tried Chrome, Brave and Edge. None of the others have had this problem and I can confidently say that this only happens with Firefox and Firefox Nightly as well.

Something that I should also mention is I have security.enterprise_roots.enabled set to true in about:config. This is because when it's set to false, Any google related webpage shows a Potential Security Warning. I don't know if this has anything to do with the issue I am having with YouTube but I still wanted to mention it.

Finally, the problem - Firefox and Firefox Nightly both get stuck on loading whenever I click on anything on YouTube. Be it the Channel Icon to go to the channel or a video or even the search bar. Anything that should take me to the next page gets stuck. Screenshot is attached. The only way to open the video or the page is to reload it or to stop the loading enter the link and then manually do it every time I need to click on something in YouTube. I have reinstalled Firefox. Reset everything. Even reinstalled windows. But the issue persists. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

if an extension requires an 'Access your data for all websites' permission then firefox requires me to choose either allow this extension to steal all my sensitive data, or not to use the extension at all.

for such cases, chrome allows me to choose when and where i prefer to allow the extension to see these data and when and where to restrict it from accessing them: Site access Allow this extension to read and change all your data on websites you visit:

  • On click
  • On specific sites
  • On all sites

does firefox allow this somehow? i'd prefer to have an option to restrict such access in some cases by clicking the extension button, in some - by white or black listing specific sites (mostly whitelisting), and for some cases - do not restrict.

I recently was looking through my autofill addresses when I noticed a name that should not be there. Someone I do not know in some state that I do not live in. I quickly changed my firefox password and various passwords that may have been compromised.

My question is, how worried should I be? How did they get my password or access to a PC with my account active on it. Then why would they be so daft to save their name and address as the autofill?

Is there any way I can check when it was made or pass this on to Mozilla support?

For the last few versions of FF (currently on 88.0.1 (64-bit) OSX Big Sur) certain websites display text incorrectly where the text is bold and each character is offset with the next one (see attached Images).

It only seems to happen to certain websites and happens both within my web based email and on standard websites - but only some of them.

I've attached a photo of the issue in my webmail - I'm viewing an email sent to me using mailchimp, but even this is inconsistent as other emails using mailchimp are fine. And as I said before it happens on websites too (examples attached).

I have this issue on my 2020 iMac and my 2020 M1 MacBook Air but not on my 2019 iMac. All 3 are running latest version of FF and all synced to my FF account and have all the same settings. Attached photo of plugins/extensions installed too.

Please help me fix this it's so frustrating!

Thanks

After migrating from Firefox 87 to 88.0.1 under linux-64 (debian 10), the browser became very slow. Typing has a delay of 2-3 seconds between end of type and appearence on screen. Same for loading pages. Migrating back to firefox 87 is a nuisance since part of the setup is lost and mozilla keeps insisting daily to switch to firefox 88. The articles in "Fix slowness" do not seem to help.

Any suggestion?

Firefox 88.0.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3

Two evenings ago I noticed my address wasn't filling in when I was checking out on a shop and thought it was simply the site. Yesterday morning, same issue, different site. Credit cards weren't filling in. I tried another site and another and another... All the same issue!

I tried disabling extensions, clearing my cache, quitting and restarting Firefox, and several suggestions on this forum for about:config. Nothing has worked.

I don't know if the attached screenshot will help. Hopefully it does.

I hadn't touched a single setting prior to this happening so I have no idea why it simply decided to stop?

Thank you!

Hello, I'm trying to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account but each time I try I get the following message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email" I'm not typing the same main email address, I'm actually trying to type another one. The only possible reason that comes to my mind is that the address I want to add is already used as a secondary address for another Firefox account (namely, the one I use at work). I don't know if it makes sense, but it's the only possible situation this address is to be already found. Any ideas why this happens and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

I use Firefox on Ubuntu 21.04 LTS and recently started facing delay of 3-4 seconds while trying to open any add-ons in top bar or even when trying to navigate application menu. I recently moved from windows to Ubuntu, no such lag or delay was there in windows.

What I tried- I tried to troubleshoot this problem with the help of troubleshooter present in Firefox and used the 'Refresh Firefox' option but still it was lagging too much. I also tried to remove all add-ons but still it was of no use. My system is fast enough to handle Firefox.
