I want to navigate on search results using the keyboard. I could use tab but it suggests all interactive elements such as news, images, books, videos, search settings and etc one by one. I want to press something and make active first result, then second. If such hotkeys are not provided, maybe there are any extensions with similar functionality?

I stopped using LastPass a couple of years ago due to them having security issues. I use Pocket and have used them for a number of years. I received an email from Pocket saying they were migrating to Firefox and in order to access what I saved to Pocket in the past, I need to use Firefox. I downloaded Firefox and LastPass is not letting me log in. I use BitWarden as my password manager. I tried accessing Firefox with the sign in and password that I used in the past but LastPass keeps giving me an error message.

Hello, is there a way to specify search results language and region that differs from the VPN?

Located in USA, but since getting a VPN (Proton) that uses Dutch IP addresses, search results are sometimes shown for Netherlands websites, shown in Dutch, with prices listed in Euros. The Firefox menus still display in English, so it's just the search results.

Tried selecting the following under Settings > Language: 1. Set the 1st & 2nd languages to English. 2. Set the preferred language as English. 3. Installed all the European language translation packages in the hope it would facilitate translation. 4. Viewed Translations to request translation of Dutch, but the UI does not allow adding a language (bug?).

Results continue to intermittently display in Dutch. Tried adding Dutch as the 3rd language, in case it might activate the Translations option, but it did not.

There doesn't seem to be a regions setting, and the Location Permissions dialog does not allow adding websites to the list (bug?).

Any suggestions appreciated.

Watching videos on Twitter/X doesn't seem to work too well on Firefox. I don't have an account, but I sometimes have to watch a clip on the site. The problem is that you cannot skip the video i.e. you cannot move the dot that shows where you are on the video; you have to watch it from the start, till the end. You cannot also change the volume, apart from clicking on the "mute", so technically here you have the options of full sound and no sound. Twitter has always worked perfectly on the Microsoft Edge that came with the Windows on this desktop PC (bought in fall 2020).

Hey there, I did some random fiddling around with my Lenovo Ideapad 320/Windows 10 and now I have the following msg when I use Firefox browser..... "XUL runner: The profile was last used with a newer version of this application. Please create a new profile". I am able to use my browser ordinarily but this msg comes up when I open the browser. I am at not at all knowledgeable about this kind of thing, so should I just ignore and carry on browsing or what would you suggest I do? If the problem needs to be resolved by me, I would definitely a point by point explanation to rectify this. Look forward to hearing from you and hope you're having a good day so far

Hi, I was using Firefox for many years . Recently I noticed that all my passwords in Firefox were gone and it seems like my account was recreated but all the historical passwords were missing. I was under the impression that those passwords are backed-up somewhere and that I can retrieve them. Could you advise how to recover my logins I collected in Firefox over the years pls.?

Hello I use webrtc to organise online calls and, for some time now, I've noticed that I'm getting echoes on Firefox whereas in the same situation (same output/input) I'm not getting any on Chrome...

I've tried looking at the getUserMedia level by changing the following parameters: **echoCancellation**, **autoGainControl**, **noiseSuppression** but that doesn't change anything.

I have the impression that this is due to the latest browser update...

No problem with chrome.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

When searching queries, this error will come up; however, when searching full length URLs it works and sends me directly to the website. I've looked through the Q/As and they all recommend clearing cache/cookies and messing with the history settings to resolve the problem. However, after doing all that and messing with other settings I cannot seem to understand why this started to happen.

When in private browsing mode it works fine and I can ask whatever and I receive all the possible websites to click on. It's just on normal browsing that I receive the error message. Am I going to need to just uninstall Firefox and reinstall to fix this? Or maybe there's something else I can try out. Thanks!

Error in Question: The page isn’t redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

In Firefox, the mouse becomes partially unresponsive to elements in the browser and on web pages. This happens after 15-30 minutes after starting up the browser. Common symptoms include:

- Unable to drag and drop elements properly, including text after highlighting it. - Sometimes, the mouse continues to hold elements while dragging. Pressing ESC temporarily fixes this. - Dropdown menus on websites do not drop down when hoovering over them - Other items on websites don't display items when hoovering over them

I have tried:

- Different mouses, including my laptop's trackpad - A Firefox fork, namely Waterfox, but it still occurs - Limited testing with other browsers. No problem occurs - Limited testing on desktop. No problem occurs - Entering Troubleshooting Mode on Firefox - Clearing cookies and cache - Reinstall Firefox (including installing from command line instead of the snap store) - Updated Firefox - Refreshed Firefox - About:Processes doesn't show anything using more than 10-15% of CPU at any one time - Limited testing with a new Firefox profile. No problem occurs - Disabled WebGL and Hardware Acceleration.

Temporary fix: Restarting Firefox, but the problem re-occurs shortly after use.

Using Ubuntu.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey!

I'm working on a translation management software called Plunet.

There are text boxes within Plunet where the spell checker does work, and others in which the spell checker is not even an option. It doesn't recognize misspelled words by underlining them in red, and when I right-click on words, the only option available is "Link". (See screenshot.) Any ideas?

Thanks!
