Hi! Have just changed primary email address on my Firefox account. When I open Firefox Monitor it now only shows this new primary email address as being monitored. Previously there were four other email addresses being monitored - they appear to have been removed as a result of changing the primary email address... Clearly this is not a major issue and the email addresses in question can again be added, but just wondering about the logic in doing this, as all other data of my account remains unchanged. Regards, Colin

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit) under Windows 7 on a desktop PC.

I've noticed a curious effect with the last two Firefox upgrades.

I have https://www.google.co.uk/ set as the default new tab site. Previously, opening a new tab automatically placed the cursor neatly into the Google search box; now it's positioned at the front of the URL in the Firefox address display.

If I go to the same Google site manually or from my bookmarks, the cursor obediently arrives in the search box. Is there any way of achieving this with the New Tab setting?

Many thanks.

The background color of the button that pops up in Firefox to approve downloading a file turned White making the text in the button impossible to see. I've looked in Preferences and cannot find anything that controls the color of this button. I've also looked in the preferences for my computer. This is happening on my Macbook Air M1 with Big Sur. Anyone know how to control this color?

I disabled MIcrosoft Edge to Firefox as default browser, but still get the stupid Edge icon for the shortcut links when I drag and drop from the address bar. I hate it! All the shortcuts have the same icon. Any way I can change this? "Properties>Change icon" does not fix this. Thanks.

Hi Firefox Community,

About a month ago, I purchased a 2020 HP Pavilion Laptop. While using Firefox, the system audio periodically drops with no system acknowledgment (drivers don't know the sound dropped). This means that sound will not play in Firefox or in any other application on the PC. (The system also won't play test sounds through Control Panel) The moment I close all windows in Firefox, the audio to my system returns. Any chance this is a common issue? Does anyone know why my computer's sound unexpectedly drops from time to time? Any help is appreciated

How to "Always open this site in container" and be able to open this site in another container at the same time?

Suppose I have 2 tabs: [tab 1 in container 1 with youtube account 1] and [tab 2 in container 2 with youtube account 2]. One account for work and one account for personal use. Every day I use both accounts, but all youtube bookmarks and all external links to youtube (for example, those that open from google-search list) open outside the container (in the default container). The question is, is it possible to always open all youtube links and youtube bookmarks in container 1 ("Always open this site in container"-feature) and still be able to access tab 2 with the container 2? The problem is that after enabling this feature, tab 2 with container 2 turns into a tab with container 1.

Hi!

As the Header says. Regulary I work with my Macbook Air (latest generation) connected to an external monitor, also with external mouse and keyboard, Macbook Air is closed. When I disconnect the USBC-Hub from my Macbook, open it und want to proceed, there is a 80% chance that Firefox freezed. There is no error message, sometimes I still hear some youtube video playing, but I can not interact with Firefox any more, so I have to close it and restart. This is really annoying as I have to reopen all of my tabs again, sign in and stuff.

Do you have an idea how to fix this?

Best regards Jonas

I am having this issue in Microsoft Edge as well as Firefox. I am using Windows 10. I have cleared my cookies/cache. Restarted my computer. I have checked my settings, unless there is something I missed.

I am having an issue with viewing images. I can see most images in the emails, but when I try to print, it is not there. For instance. I get an email to print a coupon from a restaurant. You click the link to print, but there is not coupon. I have attached what part of the email and what happens when you click to print. It comes up perfectly in Chrome.

I appreciate any help.

Hi everyone,

Firefox has become unusable on my system. The software launches, but with a blank (grey) screen, and it cannot search or navigate. Menus are clickable (dropdowns work) but do not launch. For example, I cannot access Preferences, or about:config. I can click through Help and Troubleshooting Info, however.

I've tried a number of solutions, like Refreshing, reinstalling, and downgrading. The issue persists when I log in as another user on my system, and when I create new Firefox profiles. It persists as well in safe mode. I have also tried using Beta, Nightly, and ESR. Same issue everywhere. Also of note, Chromium works fine, and no other computer processes are affected.

At this point, my only remaining thought is the following: In reorganizing my personal files and folders on the system, I might have disrupted some important pathway. I'm a fairly new Linux user, so I worry my tinkering might have messed something up? Any ideas are helpful; I would really love to get back to using Firefox ASAP.

Firefox hogging hard drive space with temp files (cubeb-shm...input/output)

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!
