Hello! I haven't been able to find a solution.

So I'm trying to make a theme with an APNG of an ECG reading, but the bottom is totally cut off. I've tried aligning it differently, customizing the toolbar, and getting a smaller APNG with no dice. Is there a way I can extend it into the rest of the toolbar like so many other themes seem to do just fine?

I honestly don't now which topic this belongs in. Today I have had Google asking to sign in when I go to a login page of some websites. I am not logged into Google on this computer. I do not have Chrome installed.

Windows10, Firefox browser, Qwant search engine. Autofill options are off. I deleted Google from the search engine options. I have cleared all history several times today and still had this happen.

Ii know some websites offer logging in with another account such a Google, FaceBook, Twitter, etc. but I don't recall seeing this pop-up before, and I didn't look at it, really. I just closed it because it was in my way. I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it except I was setting up an account and they sent me an email telling me I asked to change my email address and would no longer be able to log in with that email address.

I've seen a few other complaints about Google asking to sign into websites on Firefox and they seem ridiculous, but it appears something may be going on. Does anybody know why this would be happening? Is there anything I should look at in about:config?

I´m running PortableThunderbird 102.6.1 (64-bit) and PortableFirefox 109.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows10.

For quite a long time, the following issue exists; it´s driving me mad so that today I´m making an effort to ask for help:

When I click a link in a Thunderbird-message, that link will be opened in an unknown Firefox installation; i.e. a Firefox that does not look like "my" Firefox (with all the bookmarks and set-ups); sometimes it also first installs updates before opening a link, which suggests it is in fact "another" installation. That behavior appears no matter clicking a link in TBird directly or right-clicking it and selecting "open link in browser".

Where/how can I force TBird to use "my" Ffox installation, and how can I find & delete that "other" Ffox installation ?

Thank you & best regards

Former versions of Firefox browser for windows would treat closing the firefox windows as exiting the app. However in the current version, closing the windows does not appear to perform the actions (such as clear cookies, site data, and history) that should occur when closing the browser. For example, I closed the browser window (X at top right of window) with a gmail account logged in and displaying the inbox. When I reopened Firefox, it did not go to my start url (gmail login), instead, it returned to my email inbox, and the email was active - logged in. This seems like a security problem to me. My settings specify: Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed Clear history when Firefox closes I have no saved passwords in Firefox

1. YouTube video lags too much (which less happened in Microsoft edge) My machine is dual core & 4gb ram with a igpu called intel Q45/Q43 but i think 720p should be not lagging in this pc. I always can switch browser but i love fire fox syncing thing that's why im trying not to shift. But, if Mozilla won't fix my problem then i had to shift it. some days ago like 6months ago or long ago mozilla fixed firefox video playback by a update and it was really great and worked for me. 720p was working really fine. but now on recent update... it really lags too much.

2. fire fox becoming heavy, we all know chrome is memory hungry and uses very much ram, but i compared firefox to chrome before it was true firefox used less ram then chrome. but nowadays firefox uses much ram then chrome which is really wierd so fix it aswell.

3.some times facebook photos do not show and shows a text" a man standing with an umbrella"

4. please more optimize for a low end pc bcz I & many other people can't even afford mid sepc PC.

I loved firefox for a long, i don't want to leave it! So, please Mozilla fix my problem. ._.

I have spellcheck as you type turned on and it works in a search bar. I cannot get it to work in a webmail window. I have tried with Yahoo Mail (for a friend) and IONOS webmail with one of my own accounts. Neither work. BUT using the same accounts with Chrome I CAN check spelling in email windows as I type. This problem hasn't been raised for some time but I have noticed old posts that give options that didn't work. I don't want to get my friend (who is elderly and easily confused) to convert to Chrome but will have to bite that bullet if a solution isn't available.

Hello! As of recently (within the past couple months), I was able to go on Petco.com from a desktop. But now, every time I try, the website doesn't load correctly. It jumps on and off about 100 times a minute and never stops. This does not happen on all other browsers. Something is wrong somewhere. When trying to log into Petsmart.com from a desktop, something different happens. It does completely load but when I try to log in, it will not log me in! I am able to log in on all other browsers. The third website, Rakuten.com, same thing happens like Petsmart.com . It loads but when trying to log in Rakuten.com I get: Oops. There was a problem. Please refresh page and try again. BUT AGAIN, I am able to log on on ALL OTHER BROWSERS. Is there a fix for this for Firefox? Please let me know if you can fix this or this is the way it will be for these websites. I have been using Firefox for years and like it the best! Never had this problem. Thanks!

Was filling out pdf version of 2022 IRS tax forms and discovered leading zero is suppressed in Firefox PDF v109.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10. "Before" image is after typing leading zero but before 'enter' or moving to next field. "After" image is after typing leading zero and after 'enter' or moving to next field. The leading zero disappears.

Saving pdf does not change leading zero suppression.

To see if the pdf document was configured by the IRS to suppress leading zero, I opened the same form in Microsoft Edge v109.0.1518.78 64 bit on Windows 10. It retained the leading zero after typing then 'enter' or moving to next field.

While using MS Edge to complete pdf forms fixes my immediate issues, there still seems to be a defect in Firefox pdf.
