I have a problem, firefox is causing my screen to flicker and mess up the interface on my computer. I have no addons installed. I am always surfing incognito. In many cases the screen flickers a few times, and if I am fast enough to close Firefox the problem goes away. This problems does not happen with any other software that utilize on my computer. This occurs for the most part when I am on social media sites like FB, Linkedin or IMDb. Sometimes one can see that some square grafics as an error with in the browser window. And then after a minute or so the flickering starts. These grafic errors never occur outside the browser window and when they appear. But when the screen starts to flicker, the grafic errors occur all over the screen to the point when I close Firefox. It goes back to normal. If I am not fast enough, os stalls and I have to perform a hard reboot, with powerbutton.

I have a Razer Deathadder on OSX 10.15 and immediately after updating to version 92 the 4th and 5th mouse keys no longer open links or open up the scroll option for me. In fact they changed to the back one page and forward one page respectively. I found out how to stop that in about:config but how do I go about setting them up to both put me into scrolling mode or open up a link? I essentially had Mouse 4 and 5 doing the same thing as clicking the scroll wheel.

Clicking "Enable" in the "Manage Your Themes" area seems to do nothing. I've tried clicking both buttons in the screenshot shown below and nothing happens at all. If I click the theme itself it takes me to another screen where the "Enable" button is also broken.

What could be causing this?  How can I change to Dark theme?

Hi,

I have recently started using Firefox (from Chrome) for work - which tends to mean a lot of online form filling.

A lot of these websites have drop down options to choose from, however, when I click the top of the box to open and choose one from its contents, the box instantly opens and then closes again. The only thing I have found that works is by literally clicking the mouse and holding it and then keep it clicked while I hover down to the one I need to choose.

Previously to this all I had to do was click once to open the drop down menu and whilst it staying open scroll down to the relevant choice, click that and done.

This is really frustrating, is there something I need to do/configure? (please say there is ;-)

Cheers Chris

After updating my Mac's Firefox browser to v 92.0, the mouse middle click stopped opening hyperlinks on new tabs; instead, it goes back to the previous page.

The config command (browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick) was correctly set (True), and toggling between T/F (and restarting) made no difference.

Can you help me sort this out?

Thanks!

Hi. This issue has just happened just now and I do not have any idea what might have caused it other than the update. I use this feature constantly and now that it's gone it's driving me nuts. The middle mouse button still works but the 4th and 5th mouse buttons are now mapped to previous page and next page in Firefox.

Operating system: MacOS 10.13 Firefox version: 92.0 Mouse: Logitech MX Anywhere 3

Thanks

Previous versions of Firefox was outputting my 5th mouse button as a hotkey for closing tabs, but now it's functioning as a back button. My scroll-wheel button (Button 3) now closes tabs. How can I restore their original functions? Can it be done through about:config?

I started using a MacBook Pro which has a bright touch bar where the function keys would usually be on a keyboard, but I like to customize it by removing most of the icons because it don't really use them. For Safari I went to View > Customize Touch Bar, but for Firefox I cannot seem to find that option in the menu bar. Is there any way to customize the touch bar for Firefox as well? Thank you.

Hi, I've got an issue when I ask to download and save a file from a website. The macOS finder window is well openened, but partially mixed with the current web page. it not put on the top. Most often, I must open another app, like Safari and come back to Firefox in order to put it on the top and to be able to change the file name, select de folder and at the end save the file. Attached sample.

It is the same when I ask from Firefox menu to Save As a web page.


Thank you for your feedback.
