So this issue just started and it's really annoying.

In order to actually see the downloads, I first have to enable the menu bar and then go Tools -> Downloads

Clicking the ↓ button should open a panel of recent downloads but nothing appears when I click on it. Furthermore, the "download complete" notification that this panel provides are no longer present.

The animation for the panel still works though.

Is there a solution to this?

Foxfire (100.0) is unstable on my MacBook Air M1 OS 11.3.1. It frequently slows down its loading of site data, to the point of timing out Or simply crashing. At other times it is completely normal.

Of the 3 in the house, this is the one connected to the incoming router from the ISP. The other two are connected by wifi, also using FireFox but completely free of the laptop’s seizing up. I have sent in a dozen FF Crash Reports

Even on the laptop, when slowed down to a crawl, the Ookla speed test shows the ISP’s full connection speed of 250MB/s

The problem has survived: • clearing the OS’s DNS cache • running it on the wifi mesh (disconnected from the Ethernet hardwire)at the other end of the house • refreshing FF using “Troubleshooting Info” • clearing FF StartUp cache • clearing FF Cashed Web Content (which quickly climbs back to ~800MB — is this a reasonable load?)

It is now asking me to confirm whether, with CMD-Q pressed, I really want to quit. I am in HTTPS-only mode, and it fails to recognize an HTTPS url, asking if I want to continue on to the HTTP site.

The laptop has run FF for 16-18 months before this showed up. Possibly at the time when I started to delete all cookies (with exceptions) at quitting FF, and enabling HTTPS-Only mode. But reverting these also makes no difference.

Do I have to ditch FF and use Safari?

I'm uploading changed webpages to the internet on a daily basis, using Firefox. I'm Using Firefox version 100.0 now and I have discoverd a problem with version 100.0 . From Firefox version 99.01 and downwards, this problem never existed before. The refresh button in Firefox 100.0 ( Ctrl+R ) no longer works good anymore! Sometimes it works good, the other time it's not working correct anymore, you will not see the latest uploaded webpage on the internet. The only solution to this problem is bij closing Firefox and restarting it. Only then you will see the latest uploaded webpage on the internet. Please have a serious look at this annoying problem in version 100.0. This problem can only be discoverd by people who are uploading new webpages to the internet, not bij the regular internet-users/visitors.

Ever since the Firefox upgrade to v100.0 (Win10 64-bit), Firefox locks up whenever it spawns a new, external process. This happens most frequently whenever the website to which I'm connected (doesn't matter which one) attempts to print or read in a file on the hard drive. This is especially true for email sites, where these functions are most often called from within FireFox. No error code appears and it's not immediately evident that Firefox even has an issue. It just becomes completely unresponsive. I have to call up the Task Manager and kill the Firefox tasks to exit. When I reinvoke Firefox, it restarts the tabs I had open at the time I killed it. This never happened before v100.0, and does not happen in any other browser. I have a friend with a Windows 10 machine who has exactly the same problem.

Any suggestions?

Hi! I have set this option pdfjs.externalLinkTarget to 2, but despite that setup, all PDFs are open in the same tab of the PDF download link, that's a problem for me because, for instance, my home banking account losses the session if anything external is loaded, so when I click Firefox back arrow, the home banking session expires.

How can I set to open PDFs in Firefox in new tab?

Firefox for Android 91/98/101 (Beta) - Proxy authentication - Login credentials will not be stored

Hi all, in Firefox for Android (in the following I will always mean "Firefox for Android" when mentioning "Firefox") 78 it was possible to store login credentials, which were used to authenticate on a web proxy. The web proxy is a "squid" web proxy with enabled user authentication.

With Firefox 91 (I have not determined since which version exactly the behavior was changed, we "jumped" from Firefox 78 to 91) the web proxy asks for the login credentials and the authentication itself is working, but Firefox 78 would prompt the question, whether the user wants to store the credentials. This prompt will not be shown in Firefox 91. Additionally I have tested Firefox 98 and 101, there the prompt will be shown and the credentials will be stored (I can look the credentials up in the Firefox Password Manager), but they will not be "auto-filled" when accessing the web proxy again, after closing the Firefox.

My questions regarding this issue: Does someone know patch notes, where this behavior is mentioned? Does someone know, if this is on any "Mozilla Buglist/Featurelist"? -> before the hint will be given "use the search" -> Does someone know, what the underlying mechanism is, so that I am able to look it up?

Thanks, I appreciate any hint or suggestion (like raising it as bug/feature or possible workarounds).

When my Google calendar loads in Firefox the reminder entries don't display by default. All other calendar entries such as appointments, birthdays, etc. display just fine. To make the reminders display, I have to click on the calendar main menu (the three lines) and check the box next to reminders. Then the reminders display fine. However, the next time I start Firefox the reminders once again don't display. Once I have the reminders set I save the settings, but that doesn't help. I don't have this issue with Edge or Chrome. Has anyone else run into this, and if so, have they been able to fix it? Richard

I've been noticing lately that Firefox takes a while to start loading pages after it requests a restart or recovers from a crash.

I've followed all the advice in the forums including disabling session restore, but the problem persists.

It seems to be doing a lot of disk activity when it restarts either after requesting a restart or if it crashes and I start it again.

Anything I can do to address this issue?
