Firefox launches itself with the Twitch log in page, every time I wake up my MacBook Pro. This is not my designated startup page for Firefox. It will often open 15 to 20 different tabs upon waking, all of which are the Twitch log in page. I've looked at the Log in items in system preferences, and there is nothing I see that would be obviously attributable to Twitch. Can anyone help me figure out why this is happening, and how to stop it? Thanks.

I bought a new laptop with Windows 11 installed. When I tried to log onto my e-mail account, my yahoo, in Firefox it fails. I can log into my yahoo on Chrome, and other browsers but not Firefox. My connection with my yahoo works on my desktop with windows 10. When I try to log in I get a message saying they, my yahoo, sent a verification code to my e-mail address and I need the code to proceed. I checked my e-mail on my desktop and there is no code. There is no workaround on Firefox with my yahoo.

Thank you for any help you might suggest.

I have noticed that since Firefox 116.0.2 and earlier, FF and using Youtube worked nicely. Autoplay SLIDER was present.

Then came FF 116.0.3 and Whoops! Youtube does not function very well. Meaning AUTOPLAY stopped working.

I am currently using FF 117.0. Youtube at least now will Autoplay SOME videos; NOT all. SLIDER not visible.

By any chance, did FF meddle with using Youtube (MS Edge and Google Chrome have NO problems; also, I received a email from one of my utility providers, and the enclosed YT video played very well {the Autoplay SLIDER was present } ).

Any ideas??

Thanks a bunch...

Whenever I install a new version of Firefox it deletes the "Distribution" folder (in Windows "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\distribution"). So I have to keep a backup copy in another location so I can restore it.

Why? What is the purpose of doing this? It makes no sense. Is there a configuration setting to stop this?

When you download and click on a file without the program to use it installed, the KDE portal opens up, and the only option is to go to the discover store to get the required program since you dont have anything else that's usable. However, the new program does not show up in this window, and the window to choose the associated program cannot be closed.

So, to get it to go away, I chose to associate .pptx with the dolphin browser temporarily so I could choose the correct program afterwards. After going into the firefox settings (General>applications) and setting the powerpoint files to open with ONLYOFFICE, it still ignores my changes and opens up the dolphin browser every time. I set the normal linux file association to ONLYOFFICE, so clicking on the file outside of firefox opens the correct program. I tried uninstalling firefox and deleting "all" associated files through the discover store, and still had the same problem upon reinstalling. I can clearly see there are some remaining Mozilla files on my drive despite the fact I said to delete all of the associated files, but for some reason I do not have permission to delete them, no matter what I try.

When downloading and clicking a .pptx file through chromium, the correct application loads right away, so this is clearly a problem with only firefox not updating its file associations despite me repeatedly trying to do so through the system settings.

Since the latest Firefox update, I get the following error message when signing in to my ChatGPT account at OpenAI:

Application error: a client-side exception has occurred (see the browser console for more information).

This seems to be a browser issue and I have no idea how to solve it, what actions to take, and who can help.

What should I do? I really need to access my content on the app.

Hi

I use Firefox at work on 2 different computers. Firefox sync is unfortunately disabled and not an option.

Is there any way I can sync my bookmarks / profile between the 2 machines?

I do have access to Dropbox. Is it possible to use that to somehow sync the bookmarks between the 2 machines? Doesn't have to be in real time.

Right now I am manually exporting bookmarks and re-importing every time I switch computers.

My Firefox is randomly reloading all tabs, across all windows.

There seems to be no trigger for this on my end, at least there is no pattern that has been evident to me. There is no specific time interval that causes this either.

Please help illustrate this problem better, or guide me to a solution. Thanks!

FireFox was once on top of the browser heap. IIRC your market share was in the high 30% range. You have now somewhere in the 3% range and that's because of tampering with your core browser mission with all sorts of features that are not well received. Other browsers are superior. There is always some glitch or annoyance with each new FF version. They are too numerous to list.

Get back on track or cease to exist.

The "automatic zoom" seems to regularly zoom to a level that will cut off text far down on a page.

I'm not sure how "automatic" it is as it mostly seems to be a slightly zoomed in level compared to page fit. From the name it sounds like it should detect where there is text on a page and hide some air in headers/footers. However, even in cases where it cuts off right as the text cuts off, it's often unclear if there's a following line or empty footer space following the last visible line.

As it is I'll switch to page fit for default, but it would be preferable if the out-of-the-box experience either did a better job of not cutting off right before the text ends; at that point both page fit and width fit are better default options.

The examples are from a zoning proposal in Oslo.
