Dear Community,

I am trying to download a large file. Am on a course, and the main tutor has given the group a file to download. Have tried downloading this 5 times, but get little luck. The file that I would want to download is 8.5GB, and the furthest I get is about 4GB.

I have 2 questions about this.

1) I seem to have a very 'in and out internet connection. It seems to go down at times for no reason, cutting off the download. Is there anything I could do about this? How could I troubleshoot this, please? 2) Does anybody know of any special tools that I can use to download in a more efficient manner, please? Perhaps an extension for Firefox might be able to do this, perhaps? Kind Regards to Anyone Answering this Query, Marek

The title pretty much says it. On some phpBB forum I am member of, since yesterday, I can't write long messages and see what I'm writing.

When my texte is bigger than the default frame, the scrollbar jumps at the top of the post while i'm still writing. This doesn't happen with other browers on same webpage.

Possibility : the deepl addon i just installed  ?

Any idea ?

(sorry if i'm not clear enough, english is not my first language)

I want to run some automation tests with the firefox browser. With this, I want to get the logs which is normally shown on the console to be redirected to a separate file. How can I do this in firefox? Google chrome has a similar functionality when you open chrome with "--enable-logging --v=1" parameters.

How to disable clicking when doing a two-finger scroll with a touchpad?

Hi everyone, new Firefox user here

Everytime I scroll on Firefox using two fingers on my laptop's touchpad, there is a random left-click that appears somewhere on my browser screen. There is a small grey square that very breifly appears where this click happens (I can't take a photo since it goes away too quickly).

This click gets really annoying, since sometimes it clicks one of my many bookmark folders and drags it to the tab section at the top of my browser, thus opening all of the websites inside the bookmark folder.

I'm certain that this is not an issue with my OS, since this only happens on Firefox (the grey square is also only on Firefox).

How can I disable this feature?

Hello, I have tried all the results I have found here for fixing this issue and it still happens on a fully patched Mac. Also, unable to use the restore function as gives me the 'Unable to process the backup file' and it does not allow me to import a html backup file. I've also fully uninstalled and re-installed many times which result with the same problem. I've had this happen many dozens of times. This started happening maybe few months two ago.

Thanks

For whatever reason the Picture-in-Picture button keeps not showing up in normal places like Prime, Netflix, Hulu, etc. I can make it come back by going to the Settings turning off the Picture-in-Picture option (Which is always still active) refreshing the settings then going back to Picture-in-Picture and turning it back on and then finally refreshing the video I was trying to use, but this is kind of a lot to have to do every time it happens and it seems to be happening more and more, so I'd like to fix the root cause instead if possible. Any ideas?

Dear Mozilla

Long time user (love it) but the browser is consuming a lot of memory. With the same windows open in Chrome, Firefox is consuming 5 times the amount making the system slower glitchy.

This has been an issue for awhile and I checked all the posted solutions. Either the software is consuming an that is normal or something is running in the background. Firefox is at 1831.5 MB as I type this.

Can I uninstall then reinstall? or is everything going to return?

Thank you in advance

Malfuntion of "Reload Tab"

The website https://my.strathspey.org/dd/dance/12838/#cribs displays an image, which had a typo [Triangles used to be Traingles]

I am using Firefox 119.0.1 under Windows 10 Home Version 22H2 OS build 19045.3693

I had the page open in Firefox before the owner corrected the typo.

Immediately after the correction was online, all other browsers displayed the corrected version. But even now, hours later, after many resets by "Reload Tab", the Firefox tab still displays the typo-version.

I consider this to be a malfunction. "Reload tab" should bypass all caches, and reload the whole page directly from its server. - Is this a known bug? - If "Reload Tab" does not go to the source bypassing all caches, what doe it do? - Is there a workaround?

Hi Firefox Team, I am a university student, and I keep getting these messages below, especially when I am doing research for my assignments; it is painful as time is of the essence. I need your help asap. I have already cleared my cache, and cookies Thank you The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If a firewall or proxy protects your computer or network, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

I am having this issue where Firefox only keeps "Today's" history. I have thoroughly looked at the community's similar issue fixes.

I do not have Private Browsing on. I have set "Custom Settings History:

 -Remember browsing and download history
 -Remember search and form history

I do not have CC Cleaner or like apps and the one I do is on auto-manual and does not clear FF.

There is no reason for this. I would like to know when answering, what are a couple of likely causes for this. It appears by many queries here and on Google this has been an issue for years and FF seems not to want to fix it or know about it. Your help is appreciated.
