Hi,

After an update, Firefox does not recognize middle click at all. It worked in the past, but no longer. For example, middle clicking on... - a hyperlink should open a tab in the background - a bookmark bar item or bookmark menu should open that bookmark in background - empty space on the webpage should initiate autoscroll - a tab handle on the Firefox title bar area should close that tab None of these work as of now.

I'm on Windows 10, and I am using a Logitech MX Master 3 via USB Unifying receiver. I checked Logi Options+ app and confirmed the middle button is correctly set to middle button (default) and there's no per-app settings for Firefox.

Hello all,

For some reason, I can no longer upload or download files, with the pop-up window failing to appear entirely. I can upload folders through, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, but individual files don't work.

I've reset my browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it, opened it in troubleshooting mode, disabled enhanced tracking protection, but nothing seemed to work. I've tested another browser, and I was able to upload and download files just fine.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 using Firefox 107.0.1.

I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

For the past 2 days, Firefox is ridiculously slow in opening; 45 minutes yesterday, 25 minutes today. What is going on? How do I fix this? If it continues for another day or two, I'm switching to Chrome, because I can't put-off the start of my workday for much longer; it's unacceptable.

Hi,

as an admin I administer O365 web-sites/consoles in Firefox. I have two accounts in Firefox: my normal account, and my admin account which has far greater rights. The problem I am having is since I have enabled the option "Allow Windows single sign-on for Microsoft, work, and school accounts" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-sso?as=u&utm_source=inproduct), I always have to confirm two times that I want my admin account to login to for example: https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/#/ Is there a way to tell FF that I want only the admin account to logon to the specified link so I don't have to select the account every time?

Thanks

I have no problem with Firefox automatic updating, but I have a problem with the irritating popup coming every time after every update. Why do you nag your users like this? And why is there no "don't show this anymore" checkbox? Why is there no close button and you need to click trough the 5 steps every time??? Is there any way to disable this irritating popup in about:config ?

I installed my first Firefox years ago to get rid of popups and now Mozilla is slipping them in our face. Not nice.

The Browser is gone completly basicly. I opened a "few" Tabs and then it suddenly crashed with my PC. Now My PC is getting old so Crashes aren't new but after the Restart of the PC Firefox just didn't work, it would Open but that's where it ends i can't access anything it doesn't react to any inputs, it's black screen can't even see my bookmarks it doesn't open last opende sites or anything altough i can Input somehting in the Hot bar but it won't react to it and just try to google it but that won't work as well. I installed a second version of Firefox now but for example my passwords.. not all of those were saved somewhere else. So if someone knows a fix for that or to just get them another way through files along side my bookmarks that would be very helpfull. thankss

Hello! I am attempting to speed up a box office process by using a UIC card swiper with our ticketing software (which runs in-browser).

In non-Firefox browsers, the card swiper, when used, puts card numbers and expiration dates right into the necessary fields to save me time from typing them. Firefox (my much preferred browser!), however, reads the swipe as a Find In Page request, even when we're clicked into the text field where the card number is meant to go.

Does anyone have an insight on how to make this work the way it does on other browsers? Thank you!

I've gone down a rabbit hole of authentication in regards to Sync with Firefox. I'm wondering if I can regenerate a recovery key by removing the recovery key from my account and then choosing to re-enable a recovery key on my account? I do have the password for my primary email on my account, but I can't find the recovery key value for it.

I also have a secondary email on my account that I don't have a password for, and need to reset a password for it, but one problem at a time...
