I've rarely had problems with Firefox connecting to the Internet until the last month or so. It takes quite a long time to get to my default home page and sometimes I get a message that says it has timed out. Do I need to refresh Firefox (not sure how to safely) or is something else up? Thanks.

Hi, as of today July 2, 2020, I can no longer drag and drop tabs in Firefox to reposition them. Earlier today I had restarted firefox and an update had been pushed through.

I have tried to restart Firefox in safe mode without any extensions, but the problem persists. I don't want to "refresh" firefox and start from scratch. I've opened Chrome and can still drag and drop tabs there just fine.

Please fix this ASAP!

Hi

Some months ago I added a 32" samsung usb screen to my PC, my operating system is windows 7, This maybe coincidental and not at fault. Since adding the screen my Firefox browser crashes, what happens is the screen starts flashing and most of the display disapears you can click on some buttons if displayed or you know where they are but the only way to stop it is to close and reopen the browser, it seems to happen more frequently in a browsing session once its happend once, sometimes it dosn't happen. It seems to be triggered by the mouse scrolling wheel. I have removed and reloaded Firefox but still the same, when reloading it recognises the previous instalation and recalls some previous settings, I don't seem to be able to stop this happening. Lastly the fault does not occur on any other browser. Firefox is my default and prefered browser and I would like to cure this if possible, I have run virus scans etc and dont appear to have any contamination issues.

Any advise gratefully recieved

Many thanks Steve Hull

Stop button: What does it do?

If I start opening a hundreds-megabyte PDF, or a JS-heavy website, or a server just do not respond at all, I expect that when I'll press "Stop" button browser would... emm... stop: stop trying to render the rest of the page, stop trying to establish the connection... But notning happens. I don't see any reactions to Stop button. The only way to stop the download is to close the tab (I'm not sure, I hope it stops). By the way, it is especially "nice" when the program closes together with the closing of the last (as suddenly will be realized later) tab.

So, there is the "Stop/Reload" button. Does it do something like stop something? Or it is purely decorative/irritative? Or I just press it wrong way?

When I try to login into www.myverizon.com, after entering user Id and password, the sign in button does NOT activate. It remains "grayed out" and inactive. Neither clicking on the buton, nor pressing the "Enter" key will send the ID and password for verification or denial. However it works fine on another browser. Please advise.

Hi firefox community,

I've been using firefox forever and so all my logins and passwords have been saved in the browser. For the past two days I noticed that firefox couldn't 'connect to my account', which has never happened before - I was logged in ever since my firefox account was created. My current logins have been active, but when I tried to log into a website with a previously saved login and password - there was nothing. I then logged back into my firefox account, but all my logins and passwords are still gone. I tried manual sync, still nothing.

I am not sure if it happened after a specific update - I didn't notice when exactly I was 'logged out'.

I've been using Firefox for more than an year to access Twitter on my pc without any problems. Suddenly since last week I can open neither Twitter home page nor any other link referring to Twitter. I didn't change any settings on the browser. Any click on Twitter after Google search only opens a blank page. Doesn't Firefox support web Twitter anymore ? I can have regular access on my phone or on an old pc using another browser.
