When I go and open any website, a minute later Firefox flickers, it's been doing that for a month now. and I always get this too, a separate issue " This site is slowing down Firefox" yet it never says what site, and when Firefox is the only site open, it still does it.

A few weeks ago, every time I downloaded an attachment from Gmail, I would tell Firefox where to put the file, but I would always get an extra copy in my Downloads folder that I would have to delete.

About 4 weeks after that (after a Firefox update, I think), Firefox stopped doing this unwanted behavior.

Now (after a recent update, I think), it started doing it again.

Why is it doing this? How do I get it to stop this unwanted behavior?

There is a pop up login box - user name and password - then log in. This has always worked until the 'upgrade' to v103.0.2 but now it just sits there. This is obviously something introduced in the new version so any help would be appreciated. Thank you

After the last update to Firefox I keep getting access denied on some websites for example Lowes.com. I saw where to check security and mine is set to standard, so no joy there. I'm not a computer savvy person but I can manage with the direction and input. That being said, what can I do to fix this. I've always used Firefox but lately had to use Edge or Chrome, not my first choice. So what changed in Firefox to cause this issue as I see on your message board for several people?

When you reply, how do I know you did without me checking constantly? Do you send an email through Thunderbird to notify?

I have the home page (aka new tab page) pinned because it is the only way to get the home page to appear after closing all tabs with atleast one pinned tab active. One annoying thing I found is that search results open in the same tab, which causes the pinned new tab page to get replaced by the search results. This is now how bookmarks and shortcuts behave. Can someone tell me how to get search results (from the "awesome" bar) to open in a new tab ONLY when conducted from the home page/new tab page?

I have used Firefox for my online banking for years. Just recently when I go to the bill payment section and click on the drop down list to pay and view a bill, I can pay the bill, but when I try to view the bill the view bill window comes up for a second and the a drop down of the bank's home page comes up. The view bill page used to be a PDF file and Adobe Reader is my default. I talked with the bank and they did not see it happen in my account. If I open the online banking in Microsoft Edge it does not occur.

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

Hello. I am in need to open www site of Swegon AHU unit which is built on java. I have two installed java versions, 1.8 (one of latest of this branch) and 1.6. Problem is the AHU site is not working with anything newer than 1.6. I can't find proper solution for opening site with version 1.6 without much issues or much asking from browser. I need version 1.8 of java for daily use, and 1.6 is only for mentioned device. I tried to disable java 1.8 in java control panel but it doesn't seem to have any influence. I try to open site in Firefox 52ESR because for my knowledge is it one of latest browser which supported java. The problem is, Firefox each time is asking me what version to select for each class which must be loaded, and these classes are many for one page. It makes working with AHU a pain in azz. Everything because java is out-of-date. I know it is, but I don't have any option - these devices are not mine, and I can't upgrade firmware on myself, and can't force customer to do this. And I don't even know if there is any upgrade for them. I looked in internet but didn't find anything suitable for my case. Is there anything I can do with java or firefox 52ESR settings to make this site works flawless? I set applet in Firefox to not asking when activate java, but it still nagging me with questions and requires confirmations. I can't bypass it. I tried to use Internet Explorer 11 but there it is even worse, because out-of-date java is not allowed to run, no matter what settings i made in application. Please help.

Every time I open FF bitdefender alerts to using this Condom to protect me. I do a complete system scan with various programs and nothing is found. Something is amok with either FF or Bitdefender. Who has the answer?

Since version 98, Firefox still saves files in the designated Downloads folder, even if I just want to open them. This new behavior keeps cluttering up the Downloads folder with unnecessary garbage. What I want to have in there is what I choose to download myself, not some temporary files. That's what the Temp folder is for.

The problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409 is marked as closed, unfortunately with no fix. Will anyone be addressing this yet, or do users have to get used to it?

I, after a few months, chose to switch back to version 97.0.2 I will no longer accept updates regardless of new security patches. Unfortunately.

Hello,

After installing Firefox (103.0.2) on a clean install of Manjaro (21.3.7) Gnome (42.4), I started noticing that mouse hover effects such as highlighted tabs, UI of a video-player appearing etc. are delayed after my PC exits hibernation (I am not sure if that is the only cause and if that really IS the cause). Weirdly enough the select menu I used to answer the "Which topic best describes your question?" question to create this post experiences no delay in highlighting the hovered element. Relaunching Firefox fixes this issue temporarily.

To be clear this is no performance issue since everything except mouse hover related interactions are fluid.

Thanks for helping out

So I re-imported my bookmarks after losing them with the double profiles issue (which didn't fix my partial page loading problem permanently so if you know about that it would be helpful) but now I can't remove old ones or add new ones. I've tried deleting them with the right-click menu and using the star by the address for both adding and deleting. They open just fine but that's all.
