I use a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse, without any custom Logitech or other mouse software. When I press the mouse's back/forward buttons, instead of navigating back/forward, Firefox enter Scroll Mode (more info here). This is the same behaviour as when pressing the middle mouse button. However, I already have the middle mouse button for that! I want the back/forward buttons on the mouse to navigate back/forward. See the attached image for the back and forward buttons I'm referring to: they're directly under the horizontal scroll wheel.

Is there a way for Firefox to register the back/forward button presses as back/forward navigation commands?

There are only a few things that I need on right click. Open in New Tab, save image as, copy link, copy link location. Only rarely do I use the developer functions, so that over time I am accustomed to accessing the Developer Tools from the Tools tab on the main menu. The fact that many of these tools that I do not use are now on the right-click menu are causing me to make errors. I subscribe to an online newspaper that is the first item I read in the day. I go through the front page of the newspaper, I right click on articles I want to read in a new tab. I am so used to doing this efficiently from older versions of Firefox in which the right-click menu always opened where I right-clicked and therefore at the "open link in new tab" selection. Now, what happen is that I react by instinct and find myself clicking the middle of the menu and not the top. This results in errors that waste my time and cost me time and frustration.

Having read a few other problems that other people have had with updates of Firefox, I have to add my voice here. I realize that there are legitimate reasons to change some things - but these things are technical and deal with internet security - not style. It seems to me that constantly moving things around (like menu bars and the like) interrupts a user's accustomed work flows and therefore not a benefit.

It seems to me that there are two possible solutions: One is to make every aspect of user preferences editable by the user. For me, that means the main menu bar is on the top, followed by the tabs, and the right-click or context menus are editable by the user. The other solution is to create two Firefox browsers - one for the traditionalist (I'm 82) and a new browser called "Firefox Superuser".

For now, I'd just appreciate it if someone could tell me how I can get the stuff I don't use off the right-click menu.

I apologize for my grumpiness, I realize you're all volunteers. But, first thing in the morning, having to try to remember that the right click menu might not be opening with "open link in new tab" right next to my cursor is more than I can manage. I automatically click and at least 80% of the time, I'm clicking the wrong thing.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

I am running Firefox 88.0.1 on Windows 10 and I can not get any websites/pages to load. When I click on the Firefox icon it opens the main Firefox screen but goes no farther. I can still access the menus but nothing will load. Also on the man screen on the 3 bar menu is a icon the says "Account Disconnected". I am using Microsoft Edge to write this but I hate it! I did a Windows update shortly before this problem popped up. Should I try to uninstall that update?? Any and all help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Firefox 88.0.1 crashes every time it closes. It also causes problems with my Yahoo email, now I have to sign in every time I use Firefox 88.0.1

This problem started right after I use the troubleshooting to resolve a problem.

I use Revo Uninstaller Pro version 4 to complete remove Firefox. I shut down the computer and start it again after waiting for 5 minutes.

That did not work.

So when will this problem be fixed.

I posted this question before, and it got escalated, but there wasn't a resolution or fix suggested. I am hoping with more crash reports I can get some help finding a solution! Firefox is now crashing routinely - as in, many times each day. I am at my wits end! It's not profile-related as I sync my browser profiles and have no issues on my other computer. I did a clean install, and the crash frequently slowed for a while, but now I'm back to tearing my hair out. Please help!

Firefox v88.0.1 on Win 10 Pro 20H2 PC, Windows Security (Windows Defender). All fully up-to-date.

This problem only started recently: When link is clicked in FF to open certain pdf files, a new, fully formatted FF window opens, but the body is blank white and the pdf never loads. Doesn't happen with all pdf files listed on the "referring" page, but just some of them on a certain well-known and trusted web site, and it's very reproducible.

Setting FF to open pdf files in Adobe Reader doesn't help. Same ones open but the others still won't. Other people tell me they have no problems opening those pdf files in FF.

I completely uninstalled and re-installed FF but that didn't help. Doesn't matter how I set the security/privacy options, have Ghostery on or off (only extension installed). Use recommended performance settings is enabled, DNS over HTTPS is off, tracking protection can be standard or strict, etc.

If I click Manage Exceptions under Enhanced Tracking Protection, there's no way to enter any exceptions so I can't exempt the website in question.

If I keep trying to open one of those pdf files, FF becomes totally unresponsive. Task Manager lists ~4-5 FF entries but I can't End Task for most of them, and I typically have to reboot PC. Windows creates a firefox.dmp file which says: FAULTING_THREAD: 000012f8 PROCESS_NAME: firefox.exe ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0x80000003 - {EXCEPTION} Breakpoint A breakpoint has been reached. EXCEPTION_CODE_STR: 80000003

I've run out of things to try...

Any ideas ?

Thanks!

Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

Ever since the last update (88.0.1), I have been unable to login to my bank, or IRS sites. SOMETIMES, if i clear cookes and cache, i can get into my bank, but then when i logout, i get the access denied message again, and can't log back in. These same sites work with no issue in Chrome.

I'm having this issue where I'll click on a link within a site, and it won't open. I'll have to try multiple times before it does. Or, it'll start to open, and then close. Like, I'll try to open the menu on YouTube, and have trouble. Also, sometimes I'll be randomly sent from the current website to the one I was on previously. I've noticed this a lot on YouTube and Pinterest. Also, sometimes a site won't close right away when I click on the X. The YouTube controls are faulty. I'll click to pause, and the screen size with change. I don't want to change browsers, but I will if this keeps up. It seems to be getting worse.

I am the webmaster for a church website. As you will see about the collected data on my computer, I work on a Linux computer. Because of the pandemic, the church has been worshipping using livestream video run from the church's website. To aid parishioners with the service, we post pdfs of the Service Bulletin, Readings for the Day, and other aids to participate in the service.

Up until, I think, Firefox 87, in testing the webpage before publishing, I was able to open the pdf links in a new tab. Now, when I try to test the pdf links, Firefox prompts me to save the pdf and I cannot view it online. Given that the pdfs were generated on my computer and exist in my files, It is somewhat ridiculous that I'm being prompted to save the pages.

However, because I also have a Windows machine, I know that this is not happening on all of Firefox, just on the Linux version,

How can I alert Firefox to get this fixed. When I'm not acting as a webmaster, I have occasion to click on a pdf link and it is annoying that it will not display in the browser and and opens up a "save" box.
