Lately for the last 3ish days my YouTube connection speed on Firefox and only Firefox has been terribly slow. So slow that it can't even watch normal HD content. But not always, sometimes it does work at normal internet speeds which is so weird. I have around 500 Mbps download speed internet so I know it's not the issue. The picture with the slow download speed is on Firefox and the fast/normal download speed is on Chrome. Sometimes in a private window Firefox runs at normal speed but not always, I don't think it's an extension issue.

Hello, I am finding that Firefox display incorrectly and out of sync the subtitles in streaming services like Hulu or Amazon Video. Subtitles dialogs appear around ten seconds before the actual audio plays that dialog. It doesn't occur when I am using Chrome.

Thanks.

I use multiple Firefox profiles. I would like an EASY way to see the name of the Firefox profile somewhere on the screen. The attached image shows a theme I created which shows the name of the profile on the menu bar. I forgot exactly how I did it, but it involved typing this in a Word document, taking a screenshot and turning it into a jpeg, crop the image, upload it as a theme, then test it. Repeated several times until I got it to work.

I don't need or want fancy graphics here. I just need the name of the Firefox profile to appear somewhere in the window. In my fantasy world, there would be an option to include this name in the window Title bar.

I view a page, for example, news.yahoo.com. I usually scroll down a way, possibly to the bottom. I step away, and when I come back I want to refresh the page. Up until about two weeks ago, when I press F5 to refresh the page, it would automatically scroll back to the top of the page. Now it seems to go to (maybe) a percentage of the page based on where it was last scrolled. I then have to manually scroll back to the top to see the latest headlines. Was Firefox behavior changed? Is there a setting to control page refresh behavior?

I've been having a weird issue with my text glitching only in my Firefox browser. Initially I thought it might be my monitor but then I realized the issue only presents itself in my Firefox browser. Literally no other program is affected.

I've done a reset, I've uninstalled and done a clean install, I've deleted all Firefox files and re-downloaded the browser. The issue immediately pops up again.

“Sorry, this browser isn’t supported. Join in your browser by opening the link below in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.”

I don’t want to use either of those browsers.

What can I do to keep both Firefox and GoToMeeting?

On a new website or after clearing the cache and cookies and upon opening a page I will often get a pop-up with cookie usage choices, e.g. "strictly necessary", etc. However, the pop-up disappears before I have a chance to click on any choice or even finish reading the first line. I'm not sure what settings I need to change to allow me to make a choice on the pop-up. Please advise. Thanks.

I recently had Firefox auto update the version of Firefox on my windows computer I have for personal use. Within 48 hours or so, Microsoft defender gave me the following notification in the image below, also mentioned in the title.

A little research has had mixed results on Reddit. Anyway, I am not directly looking for advice here on securing my device. Rather, I am wondering if there is any chance this could be a problem on the Firefox end, perhaps an issued caused by the recent update? Thanks.

I tried to log in to a website that requires access to my location. I'm using Firefox 114.02 on an iMac running Monterey 12.6.7. I was able to get in to Firefox's Location settings and now have the website listed with "Allow" noted. This was not enough, and for some time I didn't understand why. Then I discovered the Mac's System Preferences' Security and Privacy section, where Location Services are one category under Privacy. Selecting Location Services brings up a list of apps that are allowed to provide location information. For some reason, other browsers are on the list and can be turned on or off, but Firefox is not on the list of apps that can be selected as permitted. Am I missing something here? I can't find any way to add apps to the list so that they can actually be selected. Any advice?

PROBLEM ACCESSING MY GMAIL VIA FIREFOX

My wife and I both have (separate) Gmail accounts – we access them on Win 10 computers, using Firefox. I have set up two Firefox “buttons” (one for each Gmail address), both of which worked perfectly – until today!

Now, when I click on EITHER of the two Gmail “buttons” I get ONLY my wife’s email! I CAN access my own Gmail with either my Android phone OR using the Edge browser however!

So far as I can see, nothing has changed with the two URLs (a different one for each button) – I’ve tried setting up a ‘new’ button from scratch and just using 'my' URL in the search bar but both still give the same result – my wife’s email account!

HELP!!

i've tried toggling media.hardwaremediakeys off and pressing the media keys to no avail, they don't seem to have any effect when it's enabled or disabled. the keys work on other applications like VLC media player, though! and I can see that the media is being detected from firefox, too, as it appears in media player widgets i have on my plasma desktop. it seems to be only the physical keys that aren't working, because i can press buttons on the widgets to control media playing in firefox.
