I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Running a speed test in Firefox will show lower download speeds, in some cases just a fraction of the speed of my broadband connection, both on Windows and Linux installations of Firefox Browser. Safe Mode makes no difference. Other browsers show normal speeds.

After my Firefox took a 'ninja update' I was not able to keep the cache clear and even though it was set to clear my cache on exit when i would open a fresh instance of firefox it would have items in the cache. nothing I would do would correct this even completely removing Firefox, the profiles, and reinstalling it. Reinstalling it is turning out to be my biggest mistake. Instead of the version 63 installing, which is what my installer was for the installer is only installing the most recent buggy version My version 63 had updates turned off, it should not have taken an update but it did even though the updates were turned off FOR security. I even had the registry set to block from HKLM When I am 'browsing' the internet I am logged into my machine with a user account that can't even make any changes. The current version (76.0.1) is having the same problems that plagued me before after this 'ninja update', the cache will not fully clear. When I open firefox it is showing it has items cached. There should be NOTHING in the cache when it opens, I do not have a home page set, there are no links set to open at startup and no connections should be made. The popup blocker is not only not blocking any popups it is opening them in new windows The machine does not have a virus or malware. Why is firefox so insecure now? The whole idea of using firefox was to be using a secure browser and just a browser it is not supposed to be integrated into the operating system it is not supposed to be interacting with the operating system it is supposed to be an internet browser. Without the ability to prevent this automatic communication and block unwanted traffic from it we may as well be using Internet Explorer, Edge or Chrome. How do we install one of the older more secure versions of Firefox without it automatically updating at the time of the install? How do we actually block the automatic communication? How do we block popups as the popup blocker does not work at all? (it worked beautifully in version 63) How do we get it to clear the cache at exit and open with the cache at 0?

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

This just started after Windows 10 update KB4551762 installed. Firefox 75 still browses OK, but will not download any application installer files. Another Firefox-based browser (Palemoon) suddenly has the same problem. Non-Mozilla browsers (Opera/Chrome) continue to download application installers OK from the web. Tried refreshing and reinstalling Firefox 75, but that does not fix the problem. I suspect the Windows 10 update rather than Firefox, because the latest Firefox in a Linux system works OK.
