'Hi, is this a known issue? Ebay will not render inside my Firefow browser.

Still looks like some parts of the page don't load, tried all the individual line items in 'page info' without success.

Seems to forget that the security was overwritten.

Some eighteen months ago I asked you how to make the scroll bars wider in Outlook. But at the time I was using Windows 7 and I cannot find your answer in my saved emails.

Now I am using Windows 10 and I would again like to widen the scroll bars in Outlook.com my email account.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Please remember I am old and not at all computer savvy and would be so grateful for a slow and easy to follow method.

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

I asked this previously on Twitter and after the fixes suggested didn't work (at least not permanently), support on Twitter sent me here. (Would have been nice for you to determine the appropriate forum and topic rather than me having to do it, by the way, "AT").

I am still getting a dragging slow Firefox using what seems like an inordinate amount of memory (though I could be wrong, check the images). My first message to support included the first image with the comment: "Yes, I've already refreshed Firefox. Yes, I've cleared my cache. Yes, I've removed all of my extensions/add-ons, though I need them back now." I then followed the instructions to try "disabling Firefox Hardware Acceleration and deleting content-prefs.sqlite".

Deleting sqlite and disabling FHA seemed to work for a while but a) is there a script I can run to auto-delete the content-prefs.sqlite daily so I can depend on your browser. And more pressing, b)second image memory usage.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Is there any way to make it so YouTube stops having its videos stutter and freeze a bit whenever I watch them via Firefox on my PC? I've tried doing everything I can. I have turned off smooth scrolling, enabled V-Sync for Firefox using Nvidia Control Panel, and much more. Nothing has helped so far. I have even used other browsers but they have issues too. And, my frames aren't dropping at all which is even weirder since it kind of feels like that is also what may be happening here. If anyone can help, please do so! Thanks!

My windows 10 laptop setup is an external 1920x1080 at 100% zoom and the laptop screen set-up as secondary, at 2560x1440 scaled at 150%.

Firefox (79.0 (64-bit)) works fine on the primary (unscaled) display, but on the scaled display all the drop-down menus (extension, but also hamburger from firefox) are too small, and the contents are either not entirely visible (typically for the extensions) or need a scrollbar (like the main firefox menu).

I tried to run firefox with extensions disabled but the problem persists.

I think this is a Firefox bug. Is it true and if so, how do I report it?
