This happens on tvlistings.zap2it.com especially, using the TV listings there, and I think sometimes on other sites, though I don't recall another example right now.

If I scroll through the listings, and don't wait a full fifteen seconds before clicking on something, it more often than not registers as though I clicked an item closer to the spot from which I scrolled. Even if the listings have definitely visibly stopped scrolling. If I don't wait, then what I see is not what I get. It is frustrating.

Any fix?

Never had this before. I opened firefox this morning and restored the old tabs as I usually do every morning. They all opened up (e.f. tab with the correct title) but the address is empty and nothing loads.

Attempted in order: - open a new tab, would not even load google, simply a white page - same action on new window, same result - refreshed firefox= nothing - uninstalled firefox = no luck - removed the apps I installed in the last days (visual studio code) - installed firefox from scratch (no account sync) 82.0 (64-bit) nothing at all. Same result see image in attachment.

I also have: removed all cookies/cache (refresh would do any ways), scanned my computer for viruses (nothing found). It doesn't open the options from the menu, it doesn't show anything under about:config

Windows 10 2004

In 15 years I'm using FIrefox I have never seen anything like this :-o

The rendering of discussions on foxnews.com is often corrupted with gibberish characters overlaying discussion text (see attached image). I do not have this problem with Chrome or Edge. Is this a Firefox bug?

I am currently running Windows 10 on my desktop computer for over 10 years and I have been using Firefox as my default browser. I’m currently using Firefox version 82.0 (64-bit) and I’ve noticed that Firefox take a longer time to launch from a cold boot of Windows 10. Is there an Add-on or something other feature that I can use to make it boot faster initially? I currently use CCleaner Version 5.7 to make my computer run faster. Your prompt response to this issue will be greatly appreciated. Wilbert Kelley xxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxx.xxx

Dear Sir,

It happen to me recently, when I put on middle button, Firefox sent me directly on new tab just opened. Or I want stay on the main search page(primary tab). I try to do Firefox Reset, Restart with Add-ons disable, Clear startup cache... Nothing. Especially, It happen to me when Firefox account is connected. All my computer do the same. I set up a new Ubuntu and install a new Firefox, but no account connected. I work correctly.

Best Regards. Sri

Ok, i start the computer, open Firefox and it says Firefox is slow opening, reset. So i click the reset button, it then wipes my toolbars, history, homepage and most other information. That in itself is not really a problem, but the thing is it will now not bookmark pages. There is a couple of ways to bookmark a page and none of them will work Any ideas ?

Cheers

I'm seeing this for a few days. Whenever I open a new window. It actually tells me I need to log in into the network WHEN I OPEN NEW TAB. That's a blank page. I don't even reach to the internet yet.

My internet works fine, even if I don't do anything, but the bar is annoying and serves no purpose (since I can use the internet just fine ignoring it).

Why did the bar start appearing? How do I disable it? (Other than switching to Chrome?)

I am trying to change the password of my website. I am at the server site, I go through several levels, I choose the next level which will take me to the "change password" level, and the little symbol just spins, and will not advance to this last level. what is causing this? The browser? the OS? something else?

Thank you for your help!
