Hello,

I've recently encountered a curious issue with my Firefox browser (Firefox version 102.0, Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25145.1011). At seemingly random times it will freeze for between two and five minutes (roughly). UI elements become completely unresponsive and the cursor does not update when moving over the browser window. The window will not minimize. Yet, Windows Task Manager does not report the application as being unresponsive. While never a common problem, any freezes in the past would eventually cause the Windows Task Manager to identify it as unresponsive.

I have disabled "recommended performance settings" and hardware acceleration to no avail. Everything seems perfectly normal immediately before and after the freezes, and I've yet to identify how I can trigger them. I do not recall having made any changes to my browser before the freezes started occurring, though multiple Windows updates have taken place since then. If I'm too impatient to wait I will end the Firefox processes via Windows Task Manager and restart it so I can return to my tabs without having cookies deleted. I have 13 plugins mainly covering privacy/security concerns. Is there some sort of debug tool I can engage to see what's occupying Firefox while it's frozen? I've just found the Firefox Task Manager, and will see if it can offer any additional information during/after the freezes.

Thanks, Logan

Some webpages cause the browser to automatically reload them at periodic intervals. Sometimes these intervals are too short and in the middle of reading the webpage it gets reloaded.

How do I prevent Firefox from accepting a reload command from the webpage I am currently browsing?

I did not see an answer to this in the FAQ.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and answering if you choose to do so.

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

Is there any way to prevent a website from adding history entries in the back button dropdown menu just because I clicked a button, which opened a confirmation modal, and closed the modal, remaining on the same initial page?

For instance there is a site I use, which has a list of my posts, with buttons to delete the posts. I click the delete button, this opens an "Are you sure?" modal window, I click delete, the modal closes, I am on the same original list page with the same URL, but now I have another pseudo-page in my back button history that I have to go through.

If I do this with three more posts, I will have an additional three back button history dropdown entries to navigate back through.

When I exceed the number of entries shown in the dropdown, I have to keep clicking through the quasi-paginated list of duplicated back button history entries for the same exact page, to get back to the page I was on before ever going to the list page.

For instance, it happens on sites that use Discourse for forums. I end up bookmarking the wrong URL if I forget to scroll back to the top of the page.

I can't find an addon (like Neat URL) that does anything like this, so I wondered if there was anything in about:config or such that might.

So there is no way to permanently hide an image from google image search on just my screen? Im not asking for the image to actually be taken down, or removed, or hidden from all. No!!! just my screen my screen of my browser.

You are telling me that is not possible at all? with or without an exenstion?

That is not possible with usercontent.css? that is not possible with anything?

The font size in the toolbar is too small. I mean the text on the tops describing my open tabs, the bookmarks toolbar, etc.

I cannot find an actionable answer to how to increase or change the font size. I need a solution, but not written in a tech language. Is there one?

In my code if have <iframe src="https://www.247klondike.com/klondikeSolitaire3card.php" ></iframe> It as being treated as a relative address instead of an absolute address, other browsers have no problem with it. I et message "Firefox can’t find the file at /C:/Howard/HTML/www.247klondike.com/klondikeSolitaire3card.php.". If it makes any difference, the HTML is from my computer, not a web site.

When opening pdf's attached to emails they used to automatically be opened by my pdf viewer software. Then they started opening in Firefox on another tab, which was fine. Now I first get an error message from firefox where I need to click on "open site in new window" it isn't a site but a pdf?? How do I get it to go back to opening with Adobe instead?

Thanks, Jeff

I remember long ago on an ancient browser there was an option in the print dialog to print a table of the links on a web page. Very useful for a page which has a lot of in-line links but no 'references'-like list of them all at the end. This can painstakingly be done by copying and pasting from the source code, but... years later, do we really not have a better way, like we used to??
