It's awful. I switched from Chrome because it's a CPU hog, but FF is absolutely USELESS. NOTHING works. It crashes if there's more than like 5 tabs open. It WILL. NOT. PLAY. YOUTUBE. I have only one extension-- adblock-- and basically any site with blocked ads becomes useless. Convenient... These problems started literally the first day I used it. I've cleared cache etc, safe mode, and made sure the hardware settings were right. Nothing works. Piece of effing garbage. Good job screwing up a half decent product. It's crap now. Waste of my f*cking time.

Hello. Since the last update (89.0), there is an annoying behaviour. The menu bar has kept a normal height, but the tab bar and tools bar are oversized (both are almost twice the normal size). The bookmarks items also are overgrown. Does anyone experience the same? Thanks in advance. hhall.

Starting from Firefox 88, and still in Firefox 89, the browser became exceedingly slow. Typing one line of text has a 4-5 seconds delay, and loading pages is even slower. I tried a new start, new user, refresh, etc., without success. Firefox 87 works fine on the same computer but 88 and 89 are annoyingly slow.

I run Firefox on Linux 4.19.0-16-amd64 with Debian 10, windowmanager Xfwm4, displaymanager lightdm

Any help?

https://bannergress.com/banner/self-similar-across-scale-24c4 The box in the upper left should be scrolling to display the whole picture. The problem is with every page of this site; I selected this particular page as an example.

scrolls on this computer: desktop Windows 10 Pro v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1

doesn't scroll on this computer: laptop Windows 10 Home v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1


What I've tried on the laptop so far (none of these solved the problem):

tried in a private browsing window

tried in Troubleshoot Mode

uninstalled Firefox deleted default profile folder (that was the only profile) deleted profiles.ini reinstalled Firefox

After upgrading to Firefox 89, there is a large grey band covering the top half of almost every website I open. It doesn't seem to happen on reddit.com, but much of reddit.com isn't displayed properly, so there's still a problem.

I tried several things and ended up deleting my ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox directories, but the problem remains. The attached screenshot shows Firefox upon first start after deleting these two directories.

I'm running Firefox on Linux (Elementary OS 5.1.7, which is based on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS).

Any idea what's going on here?

FF updated without warning this AM and now my bookmarks have gone. History is still there. Any solution. ? I have been getting more and more disappointed with some of these "upgrades" and have dropped it off my Android devices because of the stupid interface. Looks like I might have to drop it off my Win machines. Thanks Greg

How can I turn off the search from the address bar? I have an old FIREFOX HOME Page with Google search bar the middle of the page. I went to type a search in and there were no words being typed; instead, the cursor auto jumped to the address bar and typed the search there. I don't want that! I don't like that! Can it be stopped? Firefox 89.0.1 (64-bit), 06/18/2021

Please help.
