Firefox 115.12esr slow to startup takes up to 10 second to load the first time now Firefox was fine in version 112.esr. to bad Firefox forces updates, even when the update make Firefox worse. https://snipboard.io/QF0ERT.jpg of course it works faster without extensions, that does not mean anything. I would reinstall the older version but Mozilla fixed so we cannot. I do not have time to reinstall all the extension so I am left with a useless Firefox. To bad Firefox does not allow reinstall of extension automatically, a reset of Firefox would also make Firefox useless; I am at a loss to how to continue to support Mozilla and not switch to another browser?

I am using Firefox version 126.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Ventura 13.0. I cannot interact with any Nature journal webpages (https://www.nature.com/ , https://www.nature.com/neuro/ , etc). I can only scroll, no clicking on links, highlighting or anything else you might expect. Not sure if this is specific to my computer/browser/extensions or if others are experiencing this and what steps I might take to resolve?

My workplace bans Firefox. It is not possible to install it in any way on any computer. I still use Firefox on all of my personal devices, and heavily utilize the Firefox Sync to keep my Bookmarks in sync across devices. I need to be able to access my Firefox Bookmarks somehow from my work computer, so I can at least retrieve recently bookmarked items.

I am able to log in to my Firefox Account https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/account/ and see my Firefox account details, but this does not include any of my Sync data.

How can I access the contents of my Sync data? I do not even need it to be integrated into another browser, I just need to be able to access it somehow from a computer that is not able to have Firefox installed.

There is a similar question here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1255784 which provides a non-functional non-answer which is not appropriate and does not work.

Any time I try to connect to the internet, Firefox claims either I am offline or the connection is not secure. I know I have a connection as I can access the support site and every other website on an entirely different browser. I have tried refreshing the page, double-checking Firefox is allowed through the firewall, cleared cache, cleared all cookies and site data, nothing I've done is working. Firefox just randomly stopped connecting a few days ago and I had the same issue with Google Chrome last month, which is when I made the switch to Firefox.

If anyone knows anything that could maybe help, that would be great. Thank you so much!

I would like to use Firefox as a browser on my Linux Mint device. As I said in the headline, I have set all languages in the system as well as in Firefox to German and uninstalled and reinstalled the dictionary. So when I write something in Firefox it is underlined in red and when I right click for the context menu where word suggestions are made, only English is displayed and if I then scroll down and want to add another language as a spell checker, Firefox sends me to the add-on administration, which didn't help me. Because no matter what I do, only English (USA) is displayed as the language for spelling. Is there perhaps no way to change this, or is there another method?

Many thanks in advance.

I have been accessing Hulu using Firefox for almost two years. Yesterday Hulu started giving me this message "we couldn't log you in. Please check email and password and try again." I have reset my password 5-6 times with no luck. I talked to Hulu which had me try certain things with no luck. As a last resort they recommend I delete Firefox and reinstall. BTW, I CAN access Hulu using DuckDuckGo and Microsoft Edge. Any help out there? Thanks.

I regularly play Bejeweled Blitz on FaceBook but I cannot use Firefox to play because if I try I get the message to Upgrade to the latest version of Flash. Well Flash has not been used in many years but I still get that message on Firefox. I can easily play on three other browsers without receiving that message. I have switched from Firefox for that reason but I really would prefer Firefox as my default browser. What can I do? Yes, I am using the most current version of Firefox 127.0 (64 bit). My extensions are AdBlock+, Gmail mail checker. That's it. The same thing happens in troubleshooting mode too. I am using Windows 11. Please, suggestions are welcome.

Hello,

I've recently installed 127.0 (64-bit) and although I've set browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir to true, and rebooted my PC, I still don't get the 'Open With' pop-up - the file goes directly into Downloads.

I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (jammy jellyfish).

Please advise me what I'm doing wrong.
