This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

I can find no recent documentation on command line options for the Firefox Browser. All of the information on this appears to be out of date or just does not work any more (in the latest version June 2021). Is there any documentation on this anywhere that is correct for the current version of the browser? I am specifically trying to run firefox with command line options on Windows 10 but I do not see that that should make any difference. The only option I can get to work is starting firefox with a specific URL; even then I have to change the browser settings to get that to open a new window; because the browser settings override the command line option -new-window

Fedora 33 shipped with firefox-81. Just recently the first firefox update to fedora 33 landed. That update is firefox-89.

It is dead, no, excuse me, it's DEAD and DEAD slow. Youtube and streaming video sites stutter so badly that I'm lucky to get 2-3 frames per minute even if the audio holds up. firefox-89 is also slow on other fronts, no, excuse me, it's DEAD slow on all fronts.

I have a large number of windows and tabs and cutting that number by 25 to 30% has no noticable effect.

After searching for solutions, the top suggestion was to disable "proton", but no that had only a tiny effect.

What are the mozilla people thinking? My guess is that they are not thinking.

Another worthy question is, how did this awful piece of software get distributed by the fedora project.

Look, I've been using mostly firefox since it's beginning, but come on, this is ridiculous.

I downgraded to firefox-81 but now some of my streaming services have stopped working because of an unsupported browser. Additionally, gmail does not work after the downgrade.

I know I'm not a loner in this and I know that firefox-89 is not the most recent version to disappoint in a major way. I predict that firefox will be history within a year unless Mozilla pulls it's act together.

Good day! We connected two-factor authentication to the account and ran into a problem. I am installed the application "google authentificator", but when entering the code from this application it gives the error "Invalid two-step authentication code". We tried to enter more than 50 times with different codes (https://prnt.sc/152hs5u). The time on the PC and on the mobile device are identical. What could be the problem? Waiting for your answer

I'm getting a green screen when I try to play certain videos. I watched a tutorial on how to fix but the instructions don't match the options I see on my computer. If this is such a common problem I don't see why Mozilla doesn't fix it. Does anyone have a fix with menu options that are current?

Today, right-click menu options began appearing invisible. There was no issue yesterday and no changes were made to anything since then. The options can still be clicked on and work, but I cannot see the text. Right click menus continue to work normally everywhere outside of Firefox.

I have had PCs for years and have used Firefox. My PC died and will not boot. I have an image of my C:\ drive on a Passport disk. But the Mac will not read it. I installed Firefox on my new Mac and signed in had all of my bookmarks and passwords. Then there was a Firefox icon on the bottom strip and one on my screen. In the interim, I opened some new accounts and used a bunch of passwords. At the end of the day, I dragged the icon on the screen down to the row of icons at the lower screen. That wiped out my Firefox. I downloaded Firefox again and put in what I thought was the password and it said I had multiple accounts and if I changed the password it would erase all of my data. I need to find out how to get the right password so I preserve my data. The email account I used as the ID is coolsgirl@msn.com. I am 72 and I don't want to make a mistake that is irreversible. My sister said Macs were easier but I should have gotten a new PC. Live and learn. I don't know my Firefox email. Thank you, Phyllis

I have multiple screens with task bars above each other. When I open firefox in full sceen ( not f11, just the full screen option that windows provides ) on the bottom screen, there seems to be a piece of firefox's top bar overlapping the task bar on the screen above.

How do I fix this? This issue has bothered me for quite a while now. The workaround seems to be to set the windows task bar color to white ( to make it less noticable ), but that doesn't solve the problem, it just makes it less visible.

Please see the screenshot. When I unfocus Firefox ( by focussing another piece of software, or none ) the white bar disappears.

I am not sure what to attribute the problem to. I use Earthlink - I know, I'm a sap. They had a release recently, with no warning, and its far worse than the previous version. Innumerable errors and lags. Spam handling got worse, and it wasn't great.

They might be preventing the spellcheck from working. Their own spell checker was never great, but was rendered demented in the new release. It flags every plural word as a misspell, for one instance. The code was clearly untested.

I just don't like Gmail because you can't sort anything. The fonts are thread-like - intended for the young. Not for imperfect minds. The effect is 'our way or *** you.'

Earthink's folder system is somewhat reminiscent of Outlook Express, which I loved. Since they killed it, I don't want to use Microsoft db products, lest they hold my stuff hostage one day, or leave me in the lurch.

There should be a universal format, forever readable, is one so chooses.

I just right clicked in this window, composing my plea, and the spell check is there. So my inability to access it must be another 'gift' from Earthlink, the firm with the worst designers and programmers of any I've encountered.

They have arranged to bury consumer complaints, and have concocted a way to make false claims appear in search returns. Their site is covered with 'best' badges that can't possibly be deserved, or have been given. As a customer since 1997, I feel some authority to say what I'm saying, as a witness to their devolution and ever more blatant unconcern.

If you only knew.

I'd go to Thunderbird except you withdrew support for it for a time, I think I read, which makes it untrustworthy to me.

Is there any way I can access the spell check function other than a browser input window ? I don't know if can 'force' earthlink to use it only in my compose windows, but it is running with Firefox.

Anyway, thanks for any help you can give me.
