Hello there, two days ago the Google Calendar Widget inside the Gmail page stopped working in my Firefox Dev (version 88.0b2). I ignored that because I could continue to send and receive mails and I was thinkin it was a google server problem. Today I cleared cache and cookies to make a clean start, just to try if that could restore the Calendar Widget. Of course I did know that would have logged me out. Now it's impossible to log in in any Google Service because the login pagin is stuck right after I enter my email address! The console output shows warnings and a CORS error, as you can see in the screenshot. My browser is localized in italian, but the errors should be comprehensible anyway.

I can log in without problems with Chrome, but not with Firefox.

What's happening? My Firefox Dev version is bugged?

Toolbar extensions/add-ons no longer accept touchscreen input

Hello, I've been having this problem when I tap extensions on the toolbar, their small pop-up windows appear in the top-right but when I tap on the buttons in that window, the pop-up disappears instead of accepting my touch input to one of its buttons, it used to accept touch input fine, but no longer does

I've tried refreshing Firefox, and then removing prefs.js in case I messed with any of the about:config settings but it was to no avail, and I've even tried upgrading to Firefox Beta but same problem persists in beta, disabling all the extensions except one still doesn't allow add-ons to accept my touch input.

To be clear, the touch input works on Firefox's inherent buttons in the toolbar, like Bookmarks, History, Downloads, even the Pocket widget and three dots beside it, but any external extensions I install from addons.mozilla site no longer accept the input, and my touch input works fine in Chrome browser, but I like to use both browsers.

When using screen sharing, FF (up to the latest release 88) offers to share each of the open applications or the full screen. What's missing is to share just one of 3 monitors, if that's what one is using. Chrome has that option, but FF doesn't. Is that on the roadmap to be added? Or is there a plugin or hidden setting that would allow me to do that already?

duplicate https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333308

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...

In Mac OS, when the locale is right-to-left, the window control buttons should appear in the top-right side of the window. In case of tabbed window it should show before tabs. That is not the case here in Mozilla products. They show to the left in a malformed way. Only the close button is clickable, the Minimize button is barely visible and the Zoom button is totally hidden off-canvas. (Please see attached screenshot).

Hello I tried to use Firefox for a meeting with Google Meet. After reaching the front page in Meet, camera is active but I don't see myself. Camera instead is showing very light flashes with various colors.

it's not the OS....i use the latest W10. And of course it's not the camera: if I open the same Meet on Edge or Chrome...in those cases work normally. And of course is not the Firefox out to date....because I checked it is.

Thanks for your help Pier

Hi,

I have decided to ditch Google as much as possible, and come back to Firefox. I always had a tinge of guilt for going over to Google, but that's another story.

The page load times for Chrome are averaging about 1 second. for Firefox they are between 10 and 40 seconds.

OOB does Firefox need any setting changes to make it load pages faster ? I've compared page loads on pages I havent visited before, so no browser cache settings should affect loading times.

Here is some data to back this up.

System : OS Windows 10 Pro - Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043 All latest updates as of 20 April 2021

HW AMD Ryzen 9 3900x CPU X570 Aorus Motherboard 64GB DDR4 3200MHz 3090 Nvidia RTX GPU All PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs

Firefox : 88.0 (64-bit) - About Box says "Up to Date" Chrome : Version 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (64-bit) - latest on stable channel

3 x Arbitrary URLs to load a. https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/alberta-doctors-find-2nd-case-of-blood-clot-linked-to-astrazeneca-vaccine-in-canada-1.5391531 b. https://www.bbc.com/ c. https://www.usa.gov/

Clear Cache before going to web site Choose web sites I had not visited before on this computer

Load times for Chrome in MILLI seconds a 1178(ms) b 1321(ms) c 914(ms)

Same pages loaded in Firefox in SECONDS a 40.65 seconds b 10.38 seconds c 8.33 seconds

Ping and Internet Connection settings Ping 2ms Download 854.16 Mbps Upload 821.35 Mbps

Both browsers have no plugins loaded (except the page time load plugin).

Even if the plugin is telling me the wrong times, I can tell that the times are roughly correct by watching the page load, ie Chrome takes about a second to load most pages, Firefox is taking about 10-40 seconds.

I presume I must have some kind of setting that's wrong somewhere, but this is OOB, so are other people experiencing this kind of latency ?

Thanks

I develop some applications on MS .NET (Vb.NET & C#). Is it any way to automate process (i.e. browse to page and save pages as...)?

Are there .COM or .NET libraries available for Mozilla Developers for personal use?
