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.

When trying to stream video from either Netflix or Amazon I am receiving a message saying that my browser is out of date and is no longer supported. I am running 107.0.1, which is the up-to-date Firefox browser.

There is nothing on either sites help DB except for instructions on how to update my already up-to-date browser. FWIW I have been on this version for weeks and this has only emerged in the last 48 hours.

Firefox lags whole computer when playing <video> elements

Whenever I view a video on for example https://old.reddit.com/r/nextfuckinglevel/comments/zg3lhv/the_coldest_temperature_ever_achieved_38/ or https://www.dr.dk/drtv/se/julehjertets-hemmelighed_-hvem-er-tyven_352532 my computer starts to lag, not just the video, my cursor skips around when moved.

This is on latest Nightly 109.0a1, but started after I switched from a AMD RX 570 4GB => AMD RX 6600 XT 8GB, never had the problem with the old vega based GPU.

What I have tried

  1. If I disable hardware acceleration the lag stops.
  2. If I start the browser in safe mode, the lag stops
  3. Playing it in Firefox 1.0.7.1 with HW accelration, no lag!
  4. Disabling all extensions, do not stop lag

If I look in task manager, there is nothing to report, no excessive cpu or memery usage

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.

In up date Firefox Version 107.0.1 (64-bit Windows 10) Widevine plugin 4.10.2557.0 constantly crashes when I open Netlix page. Video does not play and I get Netlix error F7702-1003.

There was no problem in previous version, but after update, Firefox also updated the Widevine plugin and it crashes ever since.

Reinstalling did not help.

Numerous websites are displaying both default and programmed text / graphics on html objects. Using Firefox 107.0.1 (64-bit) on Win10. Prevents use of many web pages.

Examining pages with Firefox developer tool indicates some type of standards problem with the offending objects. Problem is wide spread with Firefox. Chrome and Edge display same pages ok.

Hello! Sites like Gartic Phone and Whiteboard Fox do not respond to my Huion tablet pen. I don't think Firefox recognizes the pen as a drawing device.

I have done some troubleshooting and have figured out that this is a Firefox specific issue: Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge both respond to my pen on those sites. I saw another person was struggling with this exact same issue, but the thread was archived with no response.

How do I fix this? Was there something I missed in the settings?

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?

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?

I recently switched from Chrome which had the Reading List feature which you could view on the Chrome Android app as well as Chrome PC.

I recently figured out Firefox has a similar thing called Collections but I can't find out where it's located on the Firefox PC application.

Or do I have to do something to sync it with my PC?

Library window cannot be sized smaller than HUGE, Firefox 107.0 64 bit Windows 10 Pro

After updating to 107.0 -- I've been getting update notices every couple of days lately -- I am unable to size the Library window to a dimension smaller than IMMENSE.

I generally have a lot of open windows on my screen -- browser windows, file folders, Notepad files, and so forth. I keep the Library window's Downloads section open, sized to display ONE download. In the rare event that I am keeping more than one download visible (I generally "Clear Downloads" after moving a newly downloaded file from my Downloads dir to its destination dir), then they will scroll vertically.

Suddenly, I find that I am now unable to shoehorn the relatively small Library window (sized to hold ONE download) between my Downloads dir (above Library) and my "Next" dir (below the Library window), containing a list of bookmarks I plan on loading.

I am using my machine for research, and I have worked out this system and have been successfully using it for several years now.

By "now" I of course mean "then" -- argh...

I have looked through the browser.download section via about.config. The only possible suspect I could find was browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel -- but, changing it to False did nothing.

I really do not appreciate this "stealth misfeature" (it does NOT show up in the documented list of changes to this version), and if there is ANY way to revert to NORMAL behavior, I would really appreciate knowing about it.

A paternalistic "we know best" attitude, LOCKING ME OUT of the ability to resize a window -- other than to make it LARGER -- well, I want to keep a civil tone, so I won't say how I feel about that, other than to point out that in an earlier life I was a developer, and I am well aware than this sort of sizing restriction is something that must be INTENTIONALLY coded. It doesn't "just happen by itself."

Someone at Mozilla DECIDED to impose this [redacted] on the world.

I guess I will now see if I can find the FTP site to back down one version and hope there are no backward-compatibility issues. As to FUTURE updates (please note that I did not say upGRADE), I am at a loss to figure how to handle them.

This is SO [redacted] frustrating!

Here (attached image) is what I am talking about. This is now the SMALLEST size I am ALLOWED to size the window!
