Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

While viewing news stories on MSN.com and clicking a link to a story with several pictures attached, the pictures will not display using Firefox but does display when using MS Edge browser. This started happening just recently. This happens with Win10 and Win7. Firefox is updated to 82.0.3 64 bit. . FYI Chase bank will not allow you to log in anymore using Firefox. Possibly related to the above problem ?

Target.com, chase.com, and some other websites that I can't think of right now don't work when trying to login with Firefox for Windows, but works fine with Chrome, Edge, my phone, apps, etc.

Target gives a message "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again" Chase loads a white overlay with a blue button and the login screen that loads after to try again looks completely broken and missing text.

Been having issues like this for a while. Firefox is up to date. I've tried wiping cookies and clearing the cache. Tried Firefox on my phone, and didn't have an issue with Target.

current version 83.0 (64bit)

Any ideas?

Hi,

I am trying to configure PKI based authentication and encryption system in my organization using Hardware token. I was able to install my hardware token feitan ePass2003 Auto in privacy->security device. I am able to see my certificates under view certificate after entering my password for private key. After research on internet, came to know that Applet based client authentication is obsolete and hence i have configure my token in Firefox. The next step i.e Authentication page is where i have got stuck up. Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page. I could not get hold of any library of java script for access to token through Firefox. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks

I downloaded the recommended update by Firefox for our browser. Apparently, I inadvertently did not carry the passwords over in the application or something. I am so upset with myself because I no longer have any passwords. I chose Firefox many years ago for the convenience of having our many passwords securely and readily available. Now I have nothing! All our financial and medical accounts have passwords and I can no longer get them. PLEASE HELP

I still am unable to get my Firefox profile password. I don't remember and I cant sign on. I am using Firefox as my search engine but I cannot update nor organize my bookmarks because I don't have my password for the Firefox account. I'm almost ready to give Firefox the boot!!! PLEASE HELP

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

Hi,

In the recent weeks, I am unable to use LinkedIn properly. After a short while of use, parts of the display disappear. When I click on a link, I am taken to a completely different place that I clicked on (seemingly What I see and where FireFox thinks I am are not aligned) and the issues keep adding up. I have ensured that FireFox is up to date. I have tried to refresh the screen. I have restarted it over and over again. Nothing has stopped this issue from reoccurring.

My Mac OS is up to date and I have no issues with LinkedIn on Safari or Chrome. But I do prefer FireFox and would hate to have to change my default browser because of this issue.

Any thoughts, suggestions and ideas are greatly welcomed.

Thanks in advance, Sally.
