This problem has been happening for a long time now. When I'm playing a playlist in YouTube, and YouTube automatically select the next song in the playlist, the song stops and I get the message "Playback Paused because your account is being used in another location". This problem ONLY happens in Firefox and with this playlist scenario. If I select the song manually in the playlist, the song will play just fine. I've used other browsers Chrome and Microsoft Edge and DO NOT have the problem in there so I know my account isn't being used in another location. I've tried using multiple PC's/Laptops and both Windows 7 and 10 and the problem always only happens when using Firefox. I checked the About section in Firefox and it's showing Firefox is Up To Date.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

Firefox has gone mad. Have refreshed. Cannot control screen layout. I want the sidebar option for bookmarks. Have dragged what I want into the option box and pressed button 'Done'. Nothing happens. I have now lost all the bars.

Have used Firefox happily for about 15 years, but now it looks as if I will havve to abandon it for a less good browser.

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

I keep the bookmarks sidebar open.

Sometimes when I have been working in other programs and return to Firefox, the Bookmarks sidebar is empty except for the Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, and Other Bookmarks headings.

When this happens, the sidebar is unresponsive.

Closing and re-opening (ctrl+b, ctrl+b) the sidebar restores everything to normal.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated.

Hello! I have a problem with Firefox. Whenever I have selected text and I press the control key, that text becomes unselected. Is like I lost focus of the window or the input text when I'm pressing the control key.

This is really annoying because it makes copy and paste really complicated. Most of the times I have to select the text and right click - "Copy" instead of a simple "Control + C". This only happens on Firefox, as on Chrome the control key works as expected.

I'm on Linux.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

As the subject says, when attempting to upload images from my computer (Ubuntu 20.04 on Firefox 94), often but not always, the result will be a visual glitch similar to the image attached. The only time which I have ever used Zoom on Firefox, the same issue happened when I tried to use my webcam, except that the lines rapidly changed colours.

I apologize if this issue has been solved in another thread, but this is a bit hard to describe without the picture, so my attempts to search for said thread were unsuccessful.

The issue is not present when I upload the images in question via mobile. Turning off my extensions has no effect.

The image attached is taken directly from attempting to upload a profile picture to my Firefox account, but I have experienced this issue with websites like Twitter and Ebay for example. I have never had this issue with Imgur, for example, even though I am doing nothing different (uploading images). I do not know why this only occurs for a select few websites.

Any responses or help is appreciated!

Hi All,

formerly there was a "view release notes" button in the update reminder window to check whether the new release is worth the installation or not. This button disappeared several months ago. Is there a way to enable it in about:config? I think that asking about an update makes no point without showing the list of changes...

Thank you,

A very serious bug in all Firefox browsers (it's been around for several years!). If you open multiple tabs (many tabs) in your browser, virtually all settings will not work, e.g. you won't open Options, Menus, various tasks, extensions, won't save your bookmarks, and many other problems. Although the browser opens a page and the Tab works! But everything else is NOT WORKING, even in Safe Mode or Troubleshooting Mode! I've reported this many times: No developer help!

Hi, I have set my default application for .pdf to be Microsoft Edge. So for example, when I open a .pdf in the file explorer it opens up in the Edge browser. When I open a .pdf in the download menu in Firefox the file does open in a pdf-explorer version of Edge. That is Edge will kinda open a new application just to show the .pdf, with no options for tabs or in general work as a web browser, it will only be a .pdf viewer. I would prefer for Firefox to open the .pdf in the normal Edge browser. Is there any way I can fix that?
