I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

So I just updated to version 106.0.1, and I noticed something new in the far right corner of the screen, an arrow with a dropdown function listed as view all tabs. I have no need for this and tried to use the customize toolbar option to remove it. It did not work. How do I get rid of this thing? It's just kinda taking up space on the screen as I doubt I'm ever gonna use it.

Any tips here?

I use Yahoo mail within Firefox. Just recently it has changed so that if I select the download option, to download any attachment to an email, it will either open (if say a PDF) or ask me where I want to save the attachment, but then the tab the Yahoo mail is open in will close once the attachment has opened/saved. Before, I could download/open/save or whatever and the Yahoo mail tab would remain open (as I would expect it to).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

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.

Is there anyway to set a timeout on the Primary Password? It would be helpful if there was a time limit on how long passwords could be used before having to log in again. At the moment you have to close out of Firefox to lock it down again.

All firefox based browsers stop video playback if window/tab loses focus

Hello, for some reason firefox and all firefox related browsers have developed a problem on my system. All videos and streams stop playing if the window/tab loses focus. This is not the first time this has happened but earlier this year using the about:config flag I will mention below the problem seemed to be fixed but now it is back and worse than ever. I have a symmetrical gigabit connection and the problem only occurs in firefox and it's related browsers, no other aspect of my internet is affected, just video/streams and only in these kinds of browsers.

I do have a bunch of extensions but all are ones I have had for a long time, years in most cases, they were not the cause of the problem before and starting in troubleshoot mode plus a fresh profile in a fresh instal confirmed they are not to blame now either.

To be precise about the issue, when I say the videos stop that is exactly what I mean, there are no lags, no buffering, no partially loaded video bar( where applicable), no tab crashes, no connection problems, no warnings about certain tabs or extensions slowing things down, nothing at all, the video simply stops.

I have tried

- safe/troubleshooting mode to rule out any extensions
- with and without my vpn running
- doing fresh installs of the browsers/ complete fresh slate, revo uninstaller pro ran and using fresh profiles 
- found some suggestions for the about:config page, namely window_occlusion_tracking
- found some contradicting information about hardware acceleration but I tried both with and without and it makes no difference
- experimenting with different versions of firefox, so if you can see which version I am using as I post this, the reason it is not the latest version is because I have tried rolling back through older releases to find one that works, but have yet to suceed,

But no matter what I have tried I cannot get the problem sorted. Either I have that specific window and tab as the sole active window on my device or I need to click into it and either reload the tab or push the play button multiple times before playback resumes.

Open to ideas because i'd rather not have to resort to chrome, thanks

I've noticed there seems to be some kind of issue with Youtube. I had jumped into the site today same as usual, and found that there were times when it was not playing properly. I couldn't shut off annotations, for example, and then there were times when the browser would say that the page was slowing down Firefox (often taking up to 60% of memory in my task manager, which should not be possible). Other times I couldn't pause a video. or if I closed the vdeo out, it would still briefly play audio from it in the background. I tried clearing the cache and later my temp files in my laptop and checked other sites to see if similar issues occur. None of them seem to be affected by this. I even shut down the computer and retarted it while putting it on the charger during startup to clear any bugs via power cycle and this is still happening on and off. Anyone have a clue what's going on?

I want all downloads and files to save to a specific folder on an external hard drive. It used to go there. But now, even when I change the location in "settings" and "about:config", when I save it goes to "Documents". Right now, but say it's set to my desired location, but when I do a "save as" it goes right to "Documents", as if "settings" isn't even there.

How to I get the save location to stay where I want it to be every time?

Hello everyone,

Please test with all versions of Firefox. I was able to reproduce this consistently even after a complete reinstall or reset. For this case, ESR was checked and surprisingly it stays online even when offline mode is used upon start using profile manager. For this, you can create a new profile and start the browser in offline mode and search something in address bar. At first, you will be greeted with an offline mode message but if you hit refresh then the browser becomes online and the search results are now available. This is not just related to search results but any websites.

Hope you guys can provide some info as this is really unexpected behavior.

Thank you and looking forward to your suggestions

Test specs: Windows 7-10/Linux/Ubuntu Firefox version: ESR 102.5.0/Standard 107.0

I am using Mozilla Firefox 64-bit with version 107.0 on Windows 10 21H2. I connect very often to HTTPS websites without a valid certificate. Often with certificates issued by themselves. Before it was always enough to say "I trust this website" once. Now the question comes again and again, whenever I connect. What could be the cause of this?

Websites browsing history does not update or delete. Opening the sidebar, right clicking on an entry and using Forget About this site or Delete Page has no effect. Menu>Settings>Privacy. Private is unchecked. I've selected Clear History Time Range Everything, all boxes checked. Settings When closed Firefox should delete all boxes checked.

Remember Browsing History and it doesn't update when I open the sidebar. Last Visited is the only selection that shows any sites and it doesn't update as I browse new sites. By Date and Site, Most Visited, by site, by date do not show any sites.

I've even uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and not sure how but it has the same history as well as last tabs opened.
