Uncontrolled tab bar scrolling

I restarted firefox today, and now I have the following behavior: I have a window with many tabs open, enough that I have the little '<' and '>' scroll buttons in the field. Whenever I move the mouse pointer into the tab area (including the scroll buttons, but not the '+' (new tab) button to the right), unless I am actively clicking, the tabs start scrolling rightward until only the rightmost set of tabs are visible. The window being viewed does not change. I can use the 'v' tab selector to the right, and it will select the chosen tab and make that visible in the window, and make the selected tab visible in the tab bar, but when I again move the pointer into the tab area, it starts scrolling to the right. Similarly, I can click on the '<' scroll left button, or double or triple click on it, and it will scroll the tabs leftward; but immediately after completing the action, the tabs will scroll rightward to the end again.

It seems my problem is the same one as in this thread but there was no solution given there (the problem persists after restarting Firefox in troubleshooting mode). I see the same behavior as that poster with the tooltips in the tab bar, but drop-down menus such as on this submission page seem to be working normally for me.

Being an old geezer of 75, I have no idea what that means. Is there a setting in Firefox that I can change to fix that or what? Appreciate the help. Thanks, Robin T. Leeman nibornameel@gmail.com

My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

I am sending in a new laptop to HP(Windows 11) for service on the keyboard and want to physically remove the stored passwords setup and synced via my Firefox sign-in, but want to make sure they do not get removed or get unsynced to my account(so can still use on existing Firefox at home). I see where you may find the location of the directory which they are stored, so can you simply delete or clear that directory on the HP device before sending out for service? Will it re-sync when PC is back at home and not effect my other live devices I will be using?

Hello all, just yesterday I noticed my Yahoo inbox was not fully loading and even when it finished loading, I have had the same few messages showing, a series of just gray bars below that, no ads, etc. and will not allow me to delete or perform commands. When I check the box by an email it simply takes me to the email, as happens if I do so before it's fully finished loading. It is as if it is still trying to load somewhere in the ether land, since there is no indication on my toolbar that it's working. I've tried everything except removing it from Firefox. I thought it was my internet service but all is fine with other sites and Yahoo mail works fine on Safari. It's never happened before. Many thanks for your help.

I'm porting a chrome extension to firefox: it clearly loads on the page as I see some of it working. But other things are not happening. There are no errors in either the page or the background page. So I wanted to set a breakpoint in my content page, and I followed the instruction on this page: https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/debugging/#debugging-content-scripts Which clearly shows extensions icons in the Sources/Main Thread.

But for me, there are none. The first screenshot is from the page where the extension is loaded no extension is listed, the second is from the background page for the temporary extension.

In Firefox 107.0.1 64-bit (Windows 10)

When looking at the console, the response tab no longer shows rendered HTML code - the response is blank.

Only if I select "Raw" over on the right do I see anything - only code.

Is this new behaviour from Firefox, or have I inadvertently changed an option?

The only way to now see the rendered page is through the "Network" tab.

Please see images.

I was updating Firefox on my on my computer, Mac OS 10.11.6( I know, I know…). Now The current version of FF won’t run and I am unable to upgrade the operating system because it so old. Is there a way to figure out which version of FF I had? Its slightly overwhelming to look at the choices of older versions to download. Any help is appreciated. Been a FF supporter forever and love it!

Every day, I get multiple bookmarks added to my list that I do not want. They include, among others, things like Get Involved (there are at least dozens of these), About Firefox (again, Dozens), Help and Tutorials (many added). They clog my bookmarks on all things that access Firefox (work computer, home computer, IPhone, IPad) and the only way is to go in an delete them. I don't want nor do I need multiple versions of any of these. For that matter, I don't want even one of each added to my bookmarks. I've looked for help but unless you are a tech expert it's almost impossible to understand how to do that. I just want it to stop or I want to know how to stop it in the simplest way possible.

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

The same is true for the refresh button, in Mac the button is not active but in Windows it is.

I'm currently testing my website using FF's RDM, I have HTML 5 video with two sources, one Webm and one MP4 encoded according to the mozilla dev pages' advice on codecs.

The video, when clicking play or the video itself, advances one frame and pauses again under all User Agents bundled into Responsive Design Mode. If I click quickly and repeatedly it will eventually play properly. The thumbnail renders properly and the progress bar indicates that the video has loaded properly.

The video works as intended on Desktop (Windows & Linux), my Pixel 4a (FF & Chrome), my friend's S20FE (One of the UAs in RDM), and StackOverflow doesn't seem to have any input on my code, so the one last thing to check is with people who know more about Responsive Design Mode.

I prefer to update Firefox manually, so in my Firefox settings, I have it set to: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

So I sometimes get a message when I launch Firefox saying "Update available. Download the latest version of Firefox." and I click "Dismiss"

Today, I launched Firefox (v107.0), got this update message, and clicked "Dismiss". However, when I go to About Firefox, it says "Firefox is being updated by another instance".

Why is Firefox ignoring my preference?
