Hi,

I've been using Containers in Firefox since I discovered it's existence. I've always been able to right click on a link in a search result and am then given a multitude of options. Almost invariably, I select "Open link in Personal Container". When I do so nothing happens. No new tab opens. No new instance of Firefox opens. Literally, nothing happens. However, if I click the link, the page that I'd like to view opens. I've not changed any of the settings in Firefox. I've not installed any new software. I've run several security apps and none has reported any malicious software on my system. I prefer to keep my original search page and explore search results on a different tab. Am I able to go back to that mode of working?

I receive the above message very frequently. Option already tried is- about:config- security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling = true/false. By toggling true/false very frequently, I can access the website.

Sometimes it works when it is true, sometimes it works when it is false. This happens all the time. how to get rid of it

Hello, My FF export to html backup stops half-way ! Here is the problem: Untill last June 2022 this backup was doing fine to reach the usual more than 65.000 mb. & gradually building up with every bookmark I add. But last month all that changed when the option started to stop half-way. Meaning it stopped at the level of more than 17.000 mb !!! Which is unbelievably LOW. Today Aug 3, 2022, I retried the operation on my usb stick. And FF export gave me the same results (with the little difference of the few bookmarks I added in the meantime). I didn't find any solution in the FF help pages to help me settle this problem. So any anything to fix this will be appreciated. I'm running windows 10 home & FF 103.0.1 (32 bit)

Like in

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224759

my twitch tab stutters when i change from a different tab to the twitch tab. I don't have it everytime, it's really inconsistent. It appears that my video moves forward some seconds. Suggestions like in the link didn't helped for me.

I tried: - set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled back to true and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false set network.http.throttle.version to 1, restart,

 set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to true again and restart -> nope

- set network.http.throttle.version to 0 and restart -> nope.

I'm really helpful for any ideas. Thanks in advance!

Within the last few days, the font in gmail has changed. When I go to gmail settings I can select a different font but the "save settings" remains greyed out and therefore the change cannot be made. If I enter gmail on a different browser I can change the font. This fault seems to be related to Firefox. Do you have a solution?

Hello,

Have recently lost the ability to print from Firefox. From the File Menu, from "3 lines" in the upper right, from ctrl-p. All result in spinning diagram and "Preparing Preview" and then just never getting further. Cannot think of any change I made in the last few days that would have caused this. Initially thought it was only when trying to print PDFs like a bank statement but now I see it is any web content I try to print.

Please help.

Thank you.

When I open a tab, I set it to default to show the shortcuts/search engine (image below). I once had 3 nearly full rows of shortcuts, now I have next to nothing. How did they disappear? And it was selective, since 3 remain that are not sponsored shortcuts or anything Firefox would care about on its own.

Any ideas as to how to fix this?

When creating a new bookmark, there is an arrow button named "Show all the bookmarks folders" that lets you choose the destination. I have managed to make the tree bigger and remove the huge thumbnail by modifying userChrome.css, but having the destination tree expanded by default would be so much more usable. The addon Default Bookmark Folder Default Bookmark Folder has a search feature but it's slower than just having the full tree from the beginning. Thank you for your help!

Firefox freezes my computer. Using Firefox V. 103.0.1

Occasionally the work on my Windows 10 (32GB memory, 5TB M.2 and SSD drives) desktop will freeze. Mouse & keyboard do nothing. There is a 3 MB Firefox file, one of about a dozen or so which show up in Task manger, which, when I highlight it and delete it, gets my computer working again. This is not from an add-on. I closed and restarted in Troubleshoot mode and tha 3 MB file still poppoed up.

Firefox runs fine without that file - I would like to know if it can be isolated and removed, or if there is an update or fix so it doeesn't interfere with my work. It's been around for several versions, Again, NOT from and add-on.

PLEASE DON'T GUESS -


IF YOU DON'T _KNOW_ HOW TO FIX THIS, PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE AT MOZILLA GIVE ME AN ANSWER.

How to get FF 103.0. to OPEN a NEW window maximized when clicking a link in the current maximized window running Windows 10 Pro x64.

i.e., I have a window open maximized. It has another window/page available through a link/hot-spot within the current window. I click that link but the new window opens NOT maximized. On ONLY SOME windows, clicking that link/hot-spot WILL open the new window maximized, but ONLY sometimes. Why? And why doesn't FF open a new window maximized when the current window IS maximized?

Doesn't make good sense to this old man.

Thanks for any and all PERTINENT answers,

I have just booted up my laptop and opened Firefox with three tabs viewing mostly text pages. Firefox has become unresponsive. Task manager shows Firefox running 19 sub tasks using nearly 1GB of Memory... see attached. This has occurred a few times recently, twice when filling online forms which meant having to start the form again from the beginning... infuriating. Is this an issue with the latest version?... I have a 'Congrats., you are using latest version' a couple of days ago. Thanks. Patrick

On accessing a financial website that I have accessed many times before using firefox, I received a prompt to set up two step authentication (new for this website).

I put in my login details and it gets to a point whener a message is displayed 'securing connection'.

This fails and the site give message that 'it's us not you'. However, using Opera, I was able to login even if having to accept cookies about 6 times.

This may be a firefox issue but I am still thinkign that it coincides with the changes they have made their end for login and using the other browser although I can login I get the odd cooke message behaviour.

Any views wodul be appreciated. Getting through to the right people at the website in question (and indeed any these days) who would analyse this with some basic coding knowledge is almost impossible.

Please oh please diminish the number of updates for firefox developer edition ....

we used to have an update every other month or even once and forever But now it seems firefox is nagging me over updates almost on every time I launch it...

I can understand security patches needd to be installed asap. I do feel however that most updates are little more than bugfixes most of them not even important for me...

please allow me to choose not install those "bugfixes" every single time... or to have it check less often...

Hi Guys,

over the pas month i've been gettign an error where my windows 10 apps slowly stop working, so it will start with the news and interests (clicking on it just does not seem to work, then the search will not work again clicking on it will not work, then eventually the start menu will stop working.

now the reason i'm posting here is for weeks i've trying to pin down the cause and today after rebuilding my windows porfile again on friday its happened again (ps the only way to resolve this issue is to rebuild my windows profile as reinstalling windows apps and store do not work), and i've looked at programs and features and firefox updated itself today.

so my thoughts are its when firefox updates itself that my windows apps start to corrupt, so has anyone else experienced this and do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to stop this happening?

i hope this makes sense
