This has happened several times over the last few weeks. I'll be using Firefox with 8-12 tabs open, or even far less, and then suddenly I cannot select any of the tabs. I click on them, and nothing happens. Video and audio will keep playing, but I cannot select anything.

So at this point I quit it, it closes fine, and when I launch it again it prompts me to either start in safe mode or to refresh. I have to restart the PC to get it to launch Firefox normally again.

The only extension I use is uBlock origin.

Hello, Here is the problem I encounter in firefox (windows 7 system): - the extensions are no longer functional - reinstalling them solves the problem only until the next start - fixing firefox did not solve the problem. When I thought about it I wondered if the problem did not follow the use of 'sync' in a non-administrator profile under ubuntu. I disconnected this machine (ubuntu) via the sync interface on my PC but the problem persists. What should I do, knowing that I currently no longer have access to this ubuntu computer (if the problem really comes from there)?

Bonjour, Voici le problème que je rencontre dans firefox (système windows 7) : - les extensions ne sont plus fonctionnels - leur réinstallation ne règle le problème que jusqu'au démarrage suivant - réparer firefox n'a pas résolu le problème. En y réfléchissant je me suis demandé si le problème ne fait pas suite à l'usage de 'sync' dans un profil non-administrateur sous ubuntu. J'ai déconnecté cette machine (ubuntu) via l'interface sync sur mon PC mais le problème perdure. Que faire, sachant que je n'ai actuellement plus accès à cet ordi ubuntu (si tant est que le problème vienne réellement de là) ?

Hi,

Why a few kilobytes of Cookies and Site Data are always left uncleared?

I clear them manually and I close the browser, but I still find them next time I launch Firefox ...


My settings are towards complete deletion of cookies and site data when Firefox is closed:

1. I have set Custom protection with blocking of All third-party cookies 'In all windows'. Please see 'Additional Screenshot.png'.

2. I manually Clear Data before closing the browser.

3. I still find a few kilobytes of data the next time I launch a fresh Firefox. Please see 'Main Screenshot.png'.


Thank you!

In some sites, there are "links" which do not show their link in the footbar and are usually images. This link open correctly with (for example) Chrome but not in Firefox. I'm just imagining that this might be a security issue but I'm not 100% sure. If so, how can I open this to allow this site? Could you give me a hand? Thanks.

You can try it yourselves: https://www.unionlido.com/en https://www.unionlido.com/en

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.

At one point in time firefox was the best. Now it is useless like windows 10. I do not understand as to why. Why? What happened? Everything is getting worse and worse and worse. Not one website or company will recommened firefox at all. The passwords and sync has ceased to function. Among so many other things.

So I am uploading an image. How do I move that social icon down in firefox? And whyam I coming onto firefox forums asking questions about HTML and CSS?

Because this does not happen on any other browser other than FF. Not on IE, edge, chrome, safari, samsung internet, opera or even netscape navigator, only FF. I have tried and tried and tried and tried. It will not move from that spot and this only happens in FF, no other

Many times lately, when i get a reply to an email I've sent, i can't read the reply. I'm on a mac book pro. I just tried clearing history for the last hour but that didn't help.

I can only read it if i go to Google Chrome .

And on GC, after being there a few minutes, all of a sudden i see it has changed to " site not secure". 

Thought it was because i was on wifi but it happens even NOT on wifi.

Hi,

I would like to know if there are any plans to support the new web vital Google metric "Largest Contentful Paint" on Firefox? As mentioned on https://caniuse.com/#search=largestcontentfulpaint it is not supported today, but it seems to become a standard to measure user experience on websites, already adopted by many different tools.

Best regards, Guillaume
