So i own an Android Phone and i use DuckDuckGo search engine on PC. I just got this adversting from duck asking me to install their extension on android. So why is this important, well obviously they directly tell me they know i own an android phone. Otherwise they would have sayd it this way; extension for mobile phones now available, or duckduckgo now available for iphones. The only other possibility would be if this is a new feature that is in general displayed to everyone, but i dont beleve this is the case because an iphone owner wouldnt care about an android extension. This is wired, is it not?

When I watch a video on twitch or sometimes on youtube, after a while the computer heats up a lot and the fan starts spinning faster than usual. This only happens to me on Firefox and rarely on Chrome (on safari no). It happens on the MacBook Air 2018

I noticed, probably after the recent browser update, most videos will lag in full screen mode. The problem does not occur in Chrome, and when playing a video without full-screen.

For example. I'm watching a lecture and the teacher is going back and forth. During that he will freeze and lag, the audio works fine, than it continues. I also noticed that the effect can easily be caused by rewinding back for a few seconds.

Not sure if this is a my laptop, youtub's or the firefox problem.

I noticed an error by off-chance while using Facebook. I clicked a link which lead to a site I've visited before... but. The moment I clicked it went to the Tab screen. Brought my other tab to the home screen. When I tried to go forward, back or type in new address it would not let me do anything. I shut down PC through power button. Turned back on and let me browse as normal. Did a scan, have found no virus or malware.

Sadly, i don't have an error report to give and I couldn't inspect the elements to see if something was messing with it. As it would just continuously reset my page screen. This is the first time this has happened.

Firefox is listed twice in my start up files area. It is only once in the uninstall area. It is installed in my program files and the maintenance files in my Program Files (x86). When I click on them they pull up different programs but when I look at the version they are both the same version. How do I get rid of that 2nd Firefox in my startup. It is driving me crazy with the duplication.

I have send some tabs "for further reading" to device I believe has some name like "Firefox on office computer" and received none of them, but none of them was received. So I checked settings and actual name is "Firefox on localhost", that occured I think after upgrade. Both devices are displayed as possible targets, and account page says that "Firefox on office computer" seen last time long time ago. How can I get list of tabs waiting to be opened on this dead instance?

Étant handicapé ces fonctionnalités me sont indispensables pour utiliser Firefox. Pourriez-vous les rétablir dans le logiciel Firefox ? Cordialement

I've created a new profile and it doesn't help. The site I'm trying to access is secured by a TLS Certificate. I have other things like AdBlock Plus and LastPass installed. I've rearranged the toolbar to my own preferences.

Resetting undoes most of my settings. There is a "TRY AGAIN" button that circumvents the issue. This is very annoying.

ALONE of all the Browsers I have (FIREFOX 72.0.2, CHROME 79.0.3945.130, INTERNET EXPLORER 11.592.18362,0, and EDGE 44.18362.449.0), FireFox fails to access this web-site. Something's wrong with FireFox?

When closing multiple tabs (>2), I receive the "You are about to close x Tabs" warning, which is fine. The problem is that following that warning, an extra, unintended tab closure occurs. i.e. If I close 2 tabs, I get the warning prompt, followed by a 3rd involuntary tab closure.

Starting today, Netflix will not run on Firefox. At first I got an error message from Netflix saying to update Firefox, but it's already up to date. Now, the red "loading" circle goes around and around, but the show won't start AND the error message no longer appears. Netflix works fine on Chrome, but I'd rather be using Firefox.

distinction would be OK - but bright blue - at least give the option to change the color. It hurts my eyes. I don't really understand anymore why everytime there is an update, more and more customizations are eliviated. Maybe it's finally time to leave Mozilla. Nothing but pain since a long time.

This may not mean much to the mozilla crew - but it is utter annoyance to me and time consuming to "fix" after every update.I look at that screen all day, every day, and - yes, I dare to customize it so it is easier for me to work. Just one example, and I am not alone at this: every time after an update the tab bar is moved up, which does not make sense to people that use it all day long. The 71. update was even worse, not even a space left for it anymore. Resulting again, as always go back to chrome css, trying to get the stuff back one works with all the time.

It just by now is too cumbersome to already know that something will again brake or be eliminated with the next update. I have weathered mozilla since it's inception. But am just tired of always having to adjust the same things, yet needing a different css line again.
