'Home' and "PgUp/Dn' buttons not working - Thinkpad

Hi,

Just installed Firefox (again) as I want to move away from Chrome/Edge. Overall I like it but having the following problems...

The 'Home' key on the top of my Thinkpad no longer functions. When using Chrome or Edge, clicking on 'Home' brings me to the top of the web page I'm looking at. Very handy.

For scrolling long pages, 'PgUp' and 'PgDn' are useful for scrolling sections at time.

But in Firefox, none of these are working properly. the 'Home button does nothing at all. I have used 'Fn+Left' and this works sometimes, other times it does nothing.

The Page Up and Down keys are hit and miss. Sometimes the Page Down button will take me to the bottom of the page, while the 'PageUp' will take me up for a section or two and then stop working.

I'd really like to stick to Firefox but this functionality is important for me and it's very annoying not having it working properly.

Any tips or help will be appreciated.

Thanks, B

Fresh Firefox install on Mac has no spell checking and no spelling/language items in right-click menu

I've long had a Mac with a Firefox install. For as a long as I remember, the spellchecking (when entering text in textedit boxes) has never worked. But that's been ok because I only had the Mac for an xcode/iOS development job, and did most of my web browsing (using Firefox) elsewhere (Linux machines running Debian) and spell checking always worked fine there.

However stupid typos slipping through when I was using Firefox on the Mac eventually led to me wanting to get to the bottom of this.

It wasn't so much simply that the spellchecking doesn't operate... it's that the right-click menu is strangely devoid of anything but

 Undo Redo | Cut Copy Paste Delete Select All | Inspect | Block Element

(that last one from uBlock Origin plugin). NB there were no "Language" or "Check spelling" items there at all, which are the first things I'd look for on my other machines if spellchecking went awry.

I tied all the usual diagnostics/fixes: remove plugins (uBlock Origin is the only one I ever use), new profile, "refresh firefox"... none of it made any difference. I went through a ton of items on this site by nothing seemed to be quite the same problem and the suggested solutions didn't work for me.

I eventually decided reinstalling from scratch was the only option: binned Applications/Firefox and Library/Application Support/Firefox and did a fresh install of the 119.0 download. But no joy. I'm typing this in it right now and there's no spellchecking happening and the right-click menu is just the same as it was before: devoid of "Check spelling" or "Language" items.

The Firefox settings "Language" section does show "English (GB)" selected, and "Check your spelling as you type" enabled. But spell-checking certainly isn't happening in any text box I'm using.

(I've attached a screenshot of what the right-click menu does look like, when I bring it up in this text box I'm typing in now.)

I'm not a "Mac native" so I'm not sure what else on the system could be messing things up. In the system settings the Trackpad is set to "Click with 2 fingers" and certainly brings up a menu in Firefox text edit boxes... but it seems odd that the Language/Spelling-related items I'd expect to see are missing from it.

I'm totally baffled. Any help much appreciated.

It used to be that when I'd set browser.privatebrowsing.enable-new-indicator to false, that there would not be the text Private browsing next to the private browsing icon on the tab bar. But now, even though I have confirmed that the setting is still on false, the text is back, just where I don't want it.

What is going on, and what step can I take to change it back?

YouTube is blocking playback on Firefox due to my use of an ad blocker. However, playback is not blocked in the same circumstances when I use Chrome. Are they trying to stop me from using an ad blocker or overturn my browser choice by forcing me to move from Firefox to Chrome for playback with an ad blocker enabled?

I am having this issue where Firefox only keeps "Today's" history. I have thoroughly looked at the community's similar issue fixes.

I do not have Private Browsing on. I have set "Custom Settings History:

 -Remember browsing and download history
 -Remember search and form history

I do not have CC Cleaner or like apps and the one I do is on auto-manual and does not clear FF.

There is no reason for this. I would like to know when answering, what are a couple of likely causes for this. It appears by many queries here and on Google this has been an issue for years and FF seems not to want to fix it or know about it. Your help is appreciated.

I don't know if it is because i closed firefox task end, or if it is a bug from update to v119 (when i reopened firefox, there was the updated tab). But now when i fly my pointer on "recently closed tab", instead of only having the 15 last closed tab of my current firefox windows, i have also the 15 of each opened firefox windows. means if i have 2 page it show 30 tabs, etc. the first 15 being the tab of the current windows (ex: FF windows 1) and the 15 next for the other opened one (FF windows 2), when i check "recently closed tab" on the other windows it is reversed (the 15 first tab are the windows 2 closed ones, and the 15 next from the windows 1). It is me, or a global bug (or new feature). If the second, how to return to the former option (means having only the tab closed from the current windows showing)

I am experiencing issues with my ChatGPT subscription while using it on the Firefox browser. Despite having an active subscription with access to ChatGPT-4, the interface only shows an 'Upgrade' option instead of the 'Refer a Friend' feature, which suggests that my subscription isn't being recognized properly. Additionally, whenever I try to send a message in the chat, I receive an error stating, 'Our systems have detected unusual activity from your system. Please try again later.' I haven't encountered these issues on other browsers. Could you please provide assistance or guidance on how to resolve these problems with Firefox?"

I have tried to clear the cache, and relogin, does not work...

I am wondering if this is an issue of Firefox or ChatGPT, any resolution on this?

Certain websites timing out in Firefox but not Safari

On both my old laptop and a new one (so a new installation of Firefox), I'm unable to load Frontier Airlines' website (www.flyfrontier.com) and get a time-out message:


The connection has timed out

The server at flyfrontier.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.


This happens even with all of my extensions disabled, with enhanced tracking protection turned off for that site and with HTTPS-only mode and DNS over HTTPS disabled. It also happens when using Firefox in safe mode. Safari loads the same website very quickly and with no problems. Does anyone know what might be going wrong? Thanks.

I have Firefox 119.0 on Windows 10, and am confused about all these bars.

Here is what I see at the top of the screen: (will have to use words for some icons)

Line 1: File/ Edit/ View/ History/ Bookmarks/ Tools/ Help, then on the right, minimize/ restore/ end.

Line 2: Firefox icon/ search bar showing my home page “Google”/ Open new tab/ List all tabs.

Menu bar is checked, so is that the Menu bar?

Line 3: Back arrow/ Forward arrow/ Shield/ Lock/ https://www.google.com/ Save to pocket/ Firefox account/ Extensions/ Application menu.

Line 4: Google screen

I asked about Download on a previous question and got a reply from cor-el (Nov 6, 2023, 4:09:55 AM) which said if I went to Menu/ More tools/ Customize toolbar, I should see a Download icon, and if not, to Reset Defaults. Did not see one before or after the reset.

Think I read somewhere that there is a way to see my previous posts, but can’t remember.

So I guess this is three questions: 1. Is that the menu bar and is that what it’s supposed to look like? Think it used to be different. 2. Where is the Download icon? 3. How can I see my previous posts?

Thanks for help with any of these.

Hi

I'm tired off spell check constantly saying I'm misspelling words because I'm writing in Danish, so I decided to download the danish dictionary for it, but it isn't working. When I right click on a "misspelled" word, it will only let me choose the default English (United States).

I have triple checked that I actually do have the danish dictionary downloaded an enabled.

Two sets of previous tabs switching between

When I first started using firefox, I was using the restore tabs feature, so when I shut down my computer and reopened it I would find myself back where I started. With time I had a lot of tabs open across multiple windows. One day I lost these tabs when I opened my computer, I'll call these tabs set one.

I didn't use the restore feature, since I figured I would just restart and maybe manage my tabs, so I started fresh and start a new set of windows. This set obviously went the same way, lots of tabs over a few windows, that restore when I open firefox on my computer. This is set two.

But every so often now I'll turn on my computer and find that I am on a different set. My previous collection of open tabs is back and while I can see in my history what I have searched, there is no option to restore the previous set of windows. It's not often, maybe once every few weeks, but it will switch between the two sets of tabs.

It's annoying because I am working with these tabs so if I am back on a previous set, then I need to reorganize my windows. Anyone had this issue?

I cannot figure out how to export my bookmarks from Mozilla Account. On the desktop browser when I open "Manage Bookmarks" and select Phil's Bookmarks, I am able to export the bookmarks from the Mozilla account.

The resulting html export file does not contain the bookmarks from Mozilla Account. There also does not seem to be a way to export those bookmarks from your online Mozilla Account interface.

How do I export the bookmarks from my Mozilla Account?

I was having trouble with Firefox freezing and needed to close it with Task Manager and reopen it whenever this happened. On one of these restarts, only a few of my windows opened up with the new session. All of the other open windows vanished. They're not in my history or my recently closed windows at all. There are three specific windows of the lost windows that had data I was actively using and don't want to lose. The URLs would be enough. I was also using the other windows, but I can re-find that information easily enough.
