Hi,

There are almost 30+ opened tabs in my firefox at any given time. So I scroll over them using muse wheel. But for each notch of mouse wheel scroll, almost 6~7 tabs move left/right.

I would like change this number to 1 tab per notch of mouse wheel scroll.

Is this possible through editing any flags?

Thanks

I am running Firefox 124.0.1 on Mac OS Sonoma 14.4.1.

I set Firefox as my default browser. However, when I have links that should redirect and open in an external application (Apple News, Facebook Messenger, etc.), Firefox does not redirect to these external applications. I have searched the FAQ and the internet but haven't seen an answer to this. As a result I have switched my default browser back to Edge, which functions as expected.

Why does my Firefox browser no longer show "Google Advanced Search" screen? All of a sudden, I can no longer access the "Google Advanced Search" screen in Firefox. It shows when I use Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome, so what is wrong with Firefox that I can no longer access "Google Advanced Search" screen in Firefox. All I get is a window that says "Google in the upper corner, there is a sudden flash of the Advanced Search screen and then it disappears and the window goes blank. This does not happen in any other browser. The issue just started today and there appears to be no way to fix it.

When editing in Gmail, holding a key down does NOT repeat the character or action. e.g. xxxxx when holding down the "x" or deleting multiple characters when holding down the <Backspace> key.

It works properly in other apps (e.g. this dialogue).

And works okay in Gmail in other browsers (e.g. Chromium or Brave).

I'm using Firefox 124 on Linux Mint 20.1.

Every time I try to use Google Docs, Gmail, or use ShelterLuv (I work at a shelter), either the tab crashes or the whole browser does. I try to upload images onto ShelterLuv, but once I click "Browse" to view my pictures, the whole browser crashes. It is making it hard to do my job.

Crash report (most recent): bp-2ae75fbf-b2c6-4419-93fb-9ee600240401 That one is from me trying to upload an image onto ShelterLuv.

Thanks in advance.

I have tried all the suggestion in the FAQ section. I must not be understanding. I normally use Edge and it easily store my information so I don't have to input it every time. However, Firefox does not store it at all. The FAQ say after you type your password you get a save or not save message. I do not get it. No where does it allow me to store anything. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox to make sure I have the latest. But same results. Any suggestion on what or how to store my data. I do not see the screens the FAQ shows. How can I save my data. I want to get rid of edge.

Images in some hotmail emails do not show. A blank space or a large space with a tiny icon (I don't know what it is) in the upper left hand corner is where an image should be. A right click in that space will allow the image to be opened in another tab.

I am using a laptop with Windows 7. I know support for that is ending soon.

Using another browser solves the problem, but I don't want to do that.

I've been experiencing this issue for a while, i've tried different things (including turning on/off "Allow paghes to choose...") and none of them work. I've uninstalled all Adobe Fonts, which also didn't work. It's the same on all of my devices except my Phone where im logged in with my Firefox Account. It seems that the Font that is being used to replace the original is Helvetica Neue, if that helps at all. I don't remember ever changing any setting regarding fonts to that font so i'm clueless at this point as to where & when this could have been caused.

Is this an issue anyone else has faced or was able to solve?

Thanks for your help

How do I download language data for translating on a machine that is not connected to the internet?

I already followed the instructions here to download an offline firefox installer: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

and I downloaded the language packs I want here: https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/124.0/win64/xpi/

and I followed the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/deploying-firefox-language-packs

But translation still doesn't work. I even manually installed the "*.xpi" packs into the browser. I can see in Firefox's settings that it thinks the packs are installed, and it offers to translate pages it detects are in a different language, but translation fails. I noticed that the language packs are smaller than I would have expected - smaller than 1MB. Is there a way to download the language data that is needed for offline translations?

Thank you!
