I just installed the latest v90 upgrade. I get at least 5 sometimes as many as 7 instances of Firefox running simultaneously. Look at my screen shot of the Task Manager...Holy Sh*t! I attempted to downgrade back to v89, but Mozilla has made this option unbearable ...have to recreate your profile, all your passwords, cookies and bookmarks, an incredible hassle. Stuff like this just shouldn't happen.

Definitely NOT a well-thought out release.

Guess I'll be migrating to Chrome sooner than I thought!?

ZDNet Comments no longer open in Firefox, but do in Chrome or Bing. What's the problem here?

Clicking on the Comments section in any ZDNet article (https://www.zdnet.com/article/) gets no response at all. The Comments section doesn't open, I'm not prompted to log in -- nothing. The cursor does change from the default arrow to a hand with pointed finger, as usual, and the Comments bar color flashes as it should when I click on it -- but that's the limit of interaction. I've tested the link with Chrome and Bing and the function still works there, but not in Firefox, and apparently hasn't since about the 26th of July. What's going on, and how can this problem be addressed?

Hey! I was wondering how the bookmark sync works like when I set it up; I have everything synced across my devices apart from bookmarks, because I was a bit afraid of this step. I do have important bookmarks on my laptop, more dedicated to work, and other important bookmarks on my PC, more about private life. If I select sync now, will some of the bookmarks be deleted and overwritten? How can I choose which bookmarks will have the priority or what to pick? (I have multiple folders with many dozens of bookmarks in each, so it's a complex system and nothing I would easily recreate) I would greatly appreciate your help! <3 Thanks

Firefox window in fullscreen will cover the taskbar when I'm focused on another non-fullscreen window

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

Hi all,

I use Firefox. On https://www.archivesspace-pi.nl/repositories/11/archival_objects/42349 we want to show the pdf in the browser but, unfortunately, this doesn't work (the downloading of the pdf functions well, by the way). Trying to solve the problem I did download the PDF-reader, but it still does'nt work. (In Chrome and Edge the showing of pdf's is no problem). What do I have to do?

Thanks for the help/advice!

Hello community,

Not really big issue but it make me crazy sometimes...

I use few sites from RU (yandex.ru) top level domain and some of them have a domains in other locations (for example COM, LT). With latest updates FF switching RU top level domain to local one (LT) in the address bar dropdown.

There was an update around 5 months ago which make this change. And Later (maybe month ago) it was returned to normal behavior (domain was the one I using frequently). Now with latest update it happens again :(

I have 2 PCs, I updated FF at one of them and I get this behavior back. The other one have outdated version and there is no domain swap (version 89.0.2, Windows at both PCs)

I can't find a way to enable natural scroll with the touchpad - down movement on the touchpad means the screen moves down - in Firefox. I've gone into about:config and set mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_y to -100, but that only affects the mouse, not the trackpad.

I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.
