I followed the instructions at [[Unload inactive tabs to save system memory in Firefox|https://mzl.la/3AdRbLx]] but I still occasionally see the tab refresh when I select it. I start with a search on Bing, click an article to open a tab, follow links from there, back to the first tab and select another. I repeat this until there are several tabs open. Sometimes the page refreshes when I switch back to one that I previously reviewed. Is that controlled by the option browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory? if so, it doesn't appear to be working. [Edit] - The last time this happened I checked my system and found 10gig used of 64gig installed. I'm using the most current version of FF 120.0.1 on Windows 11 Pro v 22H2.

Since Facebook Messenger started end-to-end encryption to chats, the call and video call buttons disappeared from the chat windows. I can only write messages but not call. This is only an issue with the encrypted chats, but not the ones where it hasn't been done. I logged on in other browsers as well, it seems the problem is in Firefox. Thank you very much for checking into this!

I used THIS link to change mousewheel.with_control.action to 5, which allows for using the scroll wheel to pinch zoom. My only issue is that it is extremely cumbersome, with 3 full rotations of the wheel required for a 2x zoom. Is there any way to increase the amount per tick it zooms in by?

Firefox crashes when I click on a box in MS Excel (and possibly other MS programs) then move to the browser to paste or not paste. This has been a problem for months now and I've reported this months ago (Oct. 3rd). Does anyone have a fix to this? I've refreshed it and it has been updated (and windows is always up to date too).

Thanks!

Hello wonderful Mozilla Firefox,

Could you please educate me on how I may change the default view of my bookmarks. I feel like it did not used to default to the "other bookmarks" in the "Manage Bookmarks" library window (ctrl+shift+o). I find it a bit annoying that it defaults all the way to the very last folder in my whole library. How to fix this? I tried to delete this folder but that is not possible. I do not need to delete, I just want for my view to default to either the very top, or possibly to remember its last accessed folder/location. Is this possible?

Thank you very much for your time and everything you do.

An avid and loyal Firefox user.

I've used Firefox for a long time and really prefer it, but I'm having to change to Chrome to be able to complete my work.

Recently Twitch and WarGaming, as well as other advertisers, collaborated on "Twitch drops" Somehow, Twitch is able to determine which tab is on top and being viewed by visitors to the website. It's one thing for Twitch to know I'm visiting the website, and quite another for them to determine if in fact the tab I have open is front and center. Seems to me this is a privacy issue that needs to be addressed.? (I have not yet determined if this Twitch snooping is working in private tabs yet, but I soon will)

Hi! I am running Firefox on an old MacPro5,1 with MacOS Ventura using Open Core Legacy Patcher. The graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630. So overall it's a pretty old setup but everything works fine. However, since day one, I've been having rendering issues with some (not all) videos on Firefox. These videos include some but not all YouTube videos, some embedded animations on websites, and every live stream video. The workaround is pretty straightforward: everything works fine on Safari and Chrome. Still, I am wondering what the issue could be, any help would be appreciated. Attached are two screenshot of what the rendering issues look like.

I just realized that my user agent string is wrong (for instance, it says that I am on OS X 10.15, even though I am on 13.6, not sure if that makes any difference at all.
