I used to be able to scroll to the bottom of my Youtube subscription list, to see the very first posted videos of all of my subscriptions, going back to the first days of Youtube in 2005. Granted, not all of the videos would show up, and I don't know if that is a Youtube problem or a Firefox problem, but most of the videos would be there. Now, after going back less than a year in the archive, the scrolling just kind of peters out. Firefox becomes unresponsive to any key press or mouse click, and all I can do is quit the program. What has changed? Has Firefox gotten even worse at memory management? it was always a total pig with memory, but has it reached the point where it just plain malfunctions and can't recover? If that is the case, then Firefox devs had better get their spit together and work on optimization. I really don't want to have to start using Edge, thank you, no. I only use Edge to view PDFs.

I have just upgraded firefox to 115.3, and now the menu and tab area have an ugly blue color with white text.

If I switch to another window, the color returns to gray with black text, but as soon as I select the window, the menu/tab area becomes blue again. Only the active tab is shown with a gray background.

I have found this bug (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090432) from 8 years ago, which seems to be the same problem, but the fix described does not work:

In about:config, browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is set to 0 (not true or false). If I set it to something else and back to 0, the blue color remains. If the value is not 0, one could argue that firefox should use the title bar color, but if it is 0, then the regular window color should be used. Also, regardless of which color ought to be used, the tab header is not connected to the window below, but separated using a blue separator, making the window exceptionally ugly. This is the case even when browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is nonzero.

I have also created a 100% fresh profile, without addons etc, and the behavior is the same.

All of my 100+ open tabs suddenly disappeared from Firefox on Mac today (not sure if I pressed some button combination by mistake or what happened). When Firefox reopened, only one tab was opened which I closed/restarted Firefox couple of times. Unfortunately I don't see all these historical tabs in the History->Recently closed tabs (just the latest one after Firefox restart). Can I somewhere find and reopen all the tabs? I tried various options but no success.

I'm a Windows 7 user... (I don't care for Windows 10 or 11) FireFox Browsers needs to have a way to adjust the ToolBar & Mrnu Text Size.. Even a Small/Medium/Large would be something. The layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in the about:config does change the font size by magifing everything on the browser. That's not exceptable, because of the way it affects everything within the viewable field. I know that no one wants to do anything to assit a Windows 7 user. But since the newer versions of window are crap.. I still need some help in trying to figure out "How to change/affect" the Size of the Text if FirwFox's browser.. Without distorting everything else within the browser....... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..........

ClearQuest: Firefox file open has issues

Hello,

When trying to open files from ClearQuest in Firefox, the file format is not always correctly recognized: every time it is necessary to manually browse for the application (e.g. Word, Excel) to open the file. Moreover, when Outlook msg file is being opened, it fails with an error message: "The command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using."

MS Edge works OK. But there are other sites that don't work well with Edge - I need a single browser for all Thales applications, and so far it's been Firefox. Every time to fix it should clear cash and set up new profile. It is working for awhile then again cause a problem. Please advise us ASAP. Thank you for your time.

When I'm working in Google Docs, the keyboard shortcut Shift + Command + 7 creates a numbered list. However, when I try to do this in Firefox, it overrides the Google Doc command and automatically opens the "Help" tab for the search engine. Is there a way to disable the "Help" tab's keyboard shortcut so that I can use shift + command + 7 to make numbered lists in Google Docs?
