Hi, Opened firefox today on my desktop pc and the open tabs at the top of FF just stroll to the right/end of my tabs as soon as i put the mouse over them to select one.

try use left arrow or scroll wheel to go to the left and just immediately mouse over to click a particular tab and before can immediately scrolls back to the right/end.

also have noticed when at the right of my open tabs mouse over any tab and whereas before would get the pop up showing the title of the page now just flashs the title up for a fraction of a second not even enought time to read it.

plus now have tried to select from the drop down box in this ask your question dialog box but when click on down arrow to select the appropiate section just flases up the options for a fraction of a section giving no time to select one. Have found only way to select is to use the arrow keys on my keyboard

thanks ian

Today, October 9th, Firefox update on my laptop and everything functions well except when I try to use the search pages for either Google or Bing. The pages https://www.google.com/ and https://www.bing.com both load without issue but when I attempt to search for ANYTHING there is just the dot moving left to right in the tab title with no results coming back on either.

All other sites appear to be running and loading fine and the issue seems to be with just the search pages that I mentioned. Both sites work fine with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

The "right click" search google function also has the same results. A blank tab opens with just the left to right dot on the tab title.

How can this be fixed? I don't want to have to go to using a different browser and of course having the ability to search is essential.

Please advise.

I've been trying all day to get to Amazon. No go. I've checked here, and found old threads about this problem. I've tried what was suggested in them, but still not able to open Amazon. There was another site that I could not open, also, with the same error message, but I cannot now recall what that site was.

Please help! I need to check on an order from Amazon that I placed just yesterday.

In the bookmarks sidebar (Win 10 PC), when using "search bookmarks" and after typing an entry to locate, I thought that there used to be a "button" (x) in the far right of the search field that would clear any entry and return the view of bookmarks in the sidebar to that which was displayed prior to the search.

Has something changed or was I just imagining this.

If my rampant imagination is at work, please consider this a feature request

Thanks

Hi,

I have scoured the web and can't seem to find a solution to this. Either firefox doesn't support this feature or I haven't looked enough.

How can you identify the pid of a tab in firefox? There isn't a tab in the task manager that shows this, like with chrome, opera, and edge.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks

Firefox 93.0 64bit Linux Mint 1.0

When I close (X) the window, my session is not restored. I have checked all the settings and verified that they are set correctly. Then, I found that when I tried to quit the program via File menu, it says that I have two windows and three tabs open, yet I only have on window/one tab open. I can not find this other window... What does this mean? Have tried refreshing the app, safe mode, and disabling the extensions that I use.

Thanks!

Hello,

For some 2 weeks I'm no longer able to read, fave and reply to comments on my personal posts. There is no scrollbar available. Besides that, I have the same issue with posts of people I follow. I cannot read, fave and reply to the comments. When clicking on the link "View all comments" it shows me just the post. Sometimes when the post is long, I cannot read it. I reported this issue to Instagram, however, nothing has been done. You also don't get any reply or feedback from IG. Now I don't know what is the issue and I cannot fix it. Have tried to refresh the browser and set to default without success.

How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?
