Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

While playing one of those free poker games there seems to be excessive RAM memory usage. Nothing else running which can account for it. Also, it shows several Firefox processes while, again, there's only one tab open.

The reason I noticed is that the game which usually runs smoothly began to be choppy/jerky, so I opened Task Manager to have a look. Note: Didn't investigate internet connection speed.

Why is Firefox using so much memory and slowing things down?

Hi,

I had to delete all my profiles and completely reinstall Firefox because Firefox was not changing the color of previous websites to purple no matter what I tried. I thought I could delete the profiles and create a brand new one to start over fresh.

After reinstalling Firefox (latest version) I have run into a problem where under <about:addons> <Plugins> it shows a yellow box and an error saying "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly".

This message won't go away and Widevine will not be installed at all. I cannot browse and Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max etc.

I have tried unchecking and checking the <Play DRM-controlled content> under <about:preferences> which does not work.

I have also tried going to this (link)link and manually installing it but the webpage for my OS's .zip file won't load for me.

I have recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. All features that I used in Chrome seem to exist in Firefox as well, until I found out that there are no local overrides in Firefox?

Some Information about this feature(it firstly appeared in Chrome's dev build in 2017): Local Overrides

Personally I found this feature very useful and convenient when debugging directly in your browser and immediately takes effect after a page refresh.

I wonder if anyone else submitted a feedback or even had a discussion about this feature? I tried to send a suggestion about this feature but they temporarily disabled the submission form.

Hi there,

We use GMail/ Calendar/ Drive for our business. On the official account, I am seeing a continuous - multi-day - situation where my Google Drive won't load when I point my browser to it unless I do at least one refresh after getting to Drive and waiting for my list of folders and documents to show up.

In the mean time, the following error shows upon on the bottom left of my screen - "The server encountered an error. Please try again later." - this has persisted for over 2 weeks when I restarted using Fiefox earlier this month. I do not get this error when using Chrome or Safari.

Today, I am also not able to see the user who last modified a document or a folder last, as you can see in the image below.

Please tell me what I can do to fix this issue.

Thanks, Mahesh

Hi all

For a while now I've had a problem in Firefox where images randomly show up with green blocky glitches or yellow lines on them. Also sometimes text does not show correctly. I've attached a couple of examples. The image is from my Facebook feed (but it can happen on any website it seems) and the text is open tabs - the one on the right is this page.

Any suggestions? I've refreshed the Firefox install, and have only one add-on - an ad blocker. I've tried two different ad-blocking add-ons and the problem persists with both.

Thanks

I'm trying to import my saved logins and passwords from Chrome to Firefox. When to try to do this I get prompted to create a Primary Password. Whenever I try to do this, I get a message saying, "Unable to set Primary Password." I also can't cancel out of this or switch to another tab--I have to ctrl-alt-del and close Firefox to get out of it. I also can't create a Primary Password through the options menu. Anytime I try to set a primary password it just says "Unable to change Primary Password."

I just recently upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Before the upgrade if I wheel clicked on a link it would open up in a new tab. Now it does absolutely nothing. I've even tried holding the wheel click for 10 seconds, still nothing.

I have verified the following settings in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When I was doing a search for related questions to this problem I found a user 3 years ago had a similar problem, and that they had an addition setting: middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This setting no longer seems to be there. I have no idea if this setting was recently removed, and is the source of my problem, or if it was removed a while ago and my problem is the result of some other change. I have restarted Firefox twice, and even rebooted my laptop, in an effort to fix this problem. Nothing has worked. Depending on what I am doing I rely on using the wheel click HEAVILY, as it is much simpler to close a tab then to hit the back button 4, 10, or 20 times to return to where I started, or if I'm trying to keep track of what links I've followed from doing a search without having to re-do the search and hope I get the exact same results (with Google I never do).

At this time I am already heavily inclined to just return to the previous version of Firefox, despite how much of a pain that will be, however this is a recently released update, so I feel I should give the devs a chance to fix any new bugs from the update. That, and I won't have the time around work for several days, probably over a week, which makes it more practical to give the devs a chance to release a patch that fixes the problem.

Every 20 minutes or so I get a notification from Bitdefender Online Threat Prevention module indicated it has blocked a suspicious connection. This has only started about 2-3 days ago. The only information the popup indicates is:

"firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to gitcdn.xyz. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one."

I performed a full system scan and found nothing harmful. Anyone know what this is or how I can fix it?

Like many users, I find Google's 'before you continue' pop-up annoying. Because I automatically delete cookies on browser exit, it keeps popping up as it doesn't remember my settings. I have installed Google Consent Dialog Remover, and it has been working well... until now.

I just did a search for a place, and tried to click on the map to go to Google Maps. The dialog intruded, despite the add-on. But worse than that, when I clicked 'I agree', nothing happened! I cannot get to the maps page at all. I've tried disabling enhanced protection -- no change. I've tried disabling various add-ons -- no change. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode, but the same problem persists.

I can't figure out how this is happening or what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Recently Windows forced an update to 20H2. All my other programs display font okay. However Firefox (desktop -- latest version) does not display fonts properly. The letters flash between thin and normal.

Strangely enough when I took a screen shot to demonstrate the weird font display the fonts were perfectly fine in the screen shot.

I took a picture with my phone. In the image one can see difference in the width of the two L in "all" As mentioned this is only happening in Firefox.

Thanks for any clues.
