I had 4 instances of Firefox windows open with multiple tabs open on each one, restart after a power outage and firefox did not bring back a singe instance of any of the open windows. How to prevent that in the future ot does Firefox need to do additional coding to make that a thing?

I use AOL e-mail, and this opens perfectly well with Firefox. Now, in order to save an e-mail to a folder on my PC I have to save it as an html document to be opened by my browser, i.e. Firefox. For a while now when I try to open any saved e-mail it will open for a few seconds and then it is covered by a Blerk 5 error notice. The following information accompanies it: ERR1800 Report ID: 0ca992e91cc1f7c63-20211015-124427. I would greatly appreciate a fix for this problem. I assume all the data are there safely saved because I can read the e-mails even if only for a few seconds. I need the fix to allow me to open all my old saved e-mails. Thank you.

Some sites colors are inverted or glitched. I've noticed when I've used roblox that the description of the game isn't there and that the site is elongated and it's just a long, empty space until I get to the bottom. Sites like steam (More specifically the workshop) the background is the light for some reason but the text stays white and it's a struggle to see.

How do I fix this? I've tried changing between light and dark mode.

I'm a recent convert from Chrome after decades (used to use Firefox waaaaaay back in the day) so I've become quite accustomed to how things worked in Chrome. I've found most of the workarounds to get it back to what I'm used to but one has stumped me and I've spent too many hours searching and reading so I'm hoping someone here can help... (I just discovered part of the problem while taking screenshots, I think it's the extension)

In Chrome, when in Gmail and clicking the download button to download an attachment, it would bring up the "save as" but in Firefox, while it will do that now for common things like jpg etc, I can't get it to do it for a .ds2 or .dss extension which are my most common downloads.

I see the Applications box in Settings/General but it doesn't show .ds2 or .dss and when I search, nothing. How do I add these two extensions so that when I try to download, it gives me the option to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option? Thank you!!

When streaming video or sound from any website i.e. YouTube, Netflix etc. my audio changes level automatically. I will start a video, the audio level will be set and when I pause and resume playing, especially multiple times in a row, the audio level will increase by itself every time i resume playing however not by increasing either the YouTube/streaming site's volume setting nor my Windows volume slider. If an episode on Netflix finishes and the next episode starts automatically, the volume will be much lower once playback resumes but again, no volume settings/sliders have changed. If I pause and play again, the volume goes up and if i pause and play multiple times it will gradually go back to the original level. I have removed application control of volume in Windows from Firefox and have tried searching for this issue but have yet to find a solution. Chrome does not have this issues on my same device. On rare occasions, the audio will automatically boost all the way up to maximum level and become distorted regardless of which audio device I'm using i.e. wireless headphones, external sound card, any other audio device. I then need to pause and un-pause a few times before it goes back to normal Please help!

Print has been broken since the display interface changed recently.

I have used FF to print placards composed using html, generally contained in tables. This almost always requires "scaling" the page to fit the available space for the printed result.

With the new interface, when I change the scale from 100% (in this case to 120%) blocks of text disappear both on the preview screen and in the resulting printout.

When I do the same with the same html file using Chrome, the page and the resulting printout scale correctly.

Would like to be able to continue to do this using FF. Hope you can address this.

I assume that you know that the FF "submit feedback" is not usable... there is no way to login other than social media, and no apparent way to "submit feedback" by mere mortals.

hello. currently, i click and hold the mouse wheel (aka middle button) and move the mouse towards me and the page moves downward. likewise, moving the mouse to my right moves the page right.

also this happens when using firefox's built in pdf viewer.

is there a way to reverse these directions?

my goal would be to have similar action/movement when using the hand tool in acrobat or photoshop.

thanks

Hi,

I'm using the latest Nightly on Windows 10. This Nightly was manually installed in a customized folder, so it works like a portable Nightly (you can copy/paste it to another folder and it'll work). In fact, for test purposes I have several Nightlys manually installed in different customized folder, all working at the same time. No Nightly standard installation on this computer, so no Nightly installed at C:\Program Files, nor C:\Program Files (x86), nor C:\Users.

Please, I'm looking for a way where the update process is done silently, at least 3 times per day. By update process I mean: Check, Download, Apply/install updates and Restart (if needed)... silently and automatically (no human intervention)... at least 3 times per day. I need to be sure that every time a Nightly is launched ALWAYS is already automatically updated.

I googled the subject and I found very old articles, so I preferred to ignore them. However, it seems that recently Nightly started to use a new Mozilla Maintenance Service + Firefox Background Updates. But if I well understood, it only works if Nightly is closed/not in use, which is useless for my needs described above.

A very friendly developer helped me, and he wrote a java script which works perfectly for my needs. But I wonder if I can avoid external java scripts. I wonder if I can achieve same results just by using Nightly own resources. I wonder if I can use the new Mozilla Maintenance Service with a specific Windows task (or a batch file etc).

Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I did the Firefox Refresh, it didn't help.

When I reach an online form, even a simple logon the autofill starts immediately, but it won't fill in anything for 30 seconds to a minute. Most of the time it will fill only the first part of the form, then another halt even though it shows it knows what the next field fill-in would be.

Then sometimes (I don't know what does it) I catch a break and mercifully the autofill releases the open form field it was hung on so I can type it on the old fashioned way, but until it does that I'm helpless as it doesn't let me stop the already started automation when the online form presented.

Any suggestions? It wasn't always this way. Thanks, Dean

I'm currently on Firefox under ...@suddenlink.net. Suddenlink as an ISP has been flaky for a year now and getting more erratic, so I want to change to my primary email address ...@gmail.com. So I made it my secondary with the intention to change it to primary, and when trying to enter it as my secondary it said "already exists." I checked my notes and I have none that say I ever tried to use Firefox under that email which i have had since I first acquired it from Google at least 11 yeas ago. It's never been anyone else's under Google, maybe there's a pretender using it for Firefox? So, I'm at an impasse. I need someone to delete that ...@gmail.comaccount from it's associated with Mozilla, and just as I don't recall ever establishing it in association with Firefox, I don't have a password stored for it.
