Cannot post any comments successfully on Youtube. Disabled adblock, etc. Get the error "Comment failed to post." This happened occasionally with earlier Firefox browser, but I assumed it was youtube auto-deleting my post for some keyword infraction.

I have ver 92 on a Win7 PC. I cannot add web site short cuts to home page. None of the suggestions out on web help.

on the blank "tiles" on home page, there is the 3 dots, but no option to edit. somehow I got one of these tiles filled out/in, but I cannot repeat it. I believe I dragged from bookmarks, does not now.

Why, why, why do the devs keep pushing asthetic design changes that user obviouslly relly don't want? You got $450 million from Google, so maybe you're doing it on purpose to drive FF users away.

Remember when FF had over 25% market share? And now you're at less than 3.5%. That's because you keep messing with the FF interface. Take for example you're unwanted chunky new double spaced menus and bookmarks. Everybody hates them. You know that. Why not listen to the last of the FF users?

Why not give use end-users a voice in how Firefox looks? Let us OPT OUT of cosmetic design changes. I've never been asked my opinion in a survey and you killed-off the FF feed back feature. Why? Because too many people don't like what your doing? Since Google essentially owns you now, are trying to kill off FF for them? Because you're doing a great job of it!

When I go to google.com and do a search the results page has the "tools" button but it does not work. The "people also ask" categories are also broken (they will not expand), and, if I click the "images" filter button to view images associated with my search it either shows no images (or only a few images) and a bunch of blank boxes. I have found that if I hold the shift key and click the reload button everything is back and working properly until the next time I do a google.com search, then it is back to the same odd behavior. So, my assumption here is that either a cookie or some site data is corrupting the results page for my search. Running Firefox 92.0 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Dell machine and everything was working fine until about two months ago. Also, Chrome does not show the same behavior. BTW. I have also done everything I have found that was recommended to fix Firefox issues with Google search. Run Firefox in private mode, run without plugins, changed themes, created new profile, I even completely uninstalled Firefox and did a clean install all with the same results. Any help is appreciated. It is almost got me ready to move back to Chrome.

I cannot like or dislike comments on the fox news website like I used to. Not only that, it's as if I've never accessed that website before. Everytime I restart the browser I need to re-login to the windsor star website. This never happened before I can give details on how to replicate this problem. Otherwise I will drop this browser, bcause I can't get any help. Already tried all troubleshooting steps. I also disabled my internet security. I need help!! Please. None of my settings have been changed, all I did was update FF.

Hello there - hoping for a hand to fix this. Several months ago Firefox crashed while it was in use - void of any update process. Upon reopening, the main window would launch and before any tabs could load it would crash again. I attempted to open in troubleshoot mode with the identical result. I gave it a break and used Chrome but in returning to this issue today the same has occurred. This time after the troubleshoot mode crash, I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed fresh (this was an upgrade from v89 to v92). Upon opening post update the browser crashed again. Each time this happens I have received a crash report screen which I accepted and it was reported as successfully submitted. However, when I open the crash report folder only two appear to have been saved - one old from the first occurrence (6/2021) and one from today(8/10/21). Both of these are linked below for review.

This is on an older Windows 7 machine that honestly I know should be updated but this is only used for light gaming and web surfing and I am not interested in an OS upgrade as I disagree with with the business practices of Microsoft - I find their policies are rather intrusive as a consumer.

I hope I've given enough information about the issue here and my system, thanks in advance for any help!

Just upgraded from Mint 18 to 20.2 and am finding FIrefox unusable. I've tried to research this and am getting nowhere. Ryzen 5, Gigabyte GA-356-gaming MB , 32GB Ram

I have about 10 windows configured with 10 tabs. (Happily this version of Firefox now remembers which desktop they are on across reboots!) When I start up firefox and it begins loading these tabs, it grinds to a halt with high CPU utilization and for some reason there is almost no activity on ethernet. The tabs take FOREVER to load, and once loaded firefox windows and tabs operates either clunky or unresponsive. MInt is affected some too, with other operations somewhat clunky.

I can reboot and load a session of Chrome and it behaves fine and speed tests there are proper. Since it works on Chrome, I figure this is strictly a FIrefox code issue, not something underlying like BIOS (which is F31, not the highest for this MB) But hopefully there is a Mint work around that someone knows.

on some pages, etsy for example, the page loads but I can't scroll down the page. When I cut and paste the link into chrome, it works perfectly so I know it's not my mouse or keyboard. This is something that has happened over the last few weeks.

I've cleared all cookies, cache, reinstalled firefox, all the usualy things but to no avail.

please can anyone provide a real solution?

When i was changing Profiles, Firefox said an error message "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. For your protection, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox"

Its my first time using Firefox and I'm very Worried. I have a lot of data and bookmarks on that profile. I have 2 types of Firefox, Normal Firefox (Version 91.0.2 64-bit) and Firefox Dev Edition (Version 92.0b9 (32-bit) Normal Firefox for Browsing and Dev Edition for coding. When i was trying to use the Profile in Dev Edition (Pre-made in Normal Firefox) it worked. But when i was trying to use the profile that i used on Dev Edition it doesn't work. Then i was forced to make a new profile.

Can anyone solve this problem? I've never Updated Firefox because i downloaded in Version 91.0.2

Today I clicked on the Ghostery button to temporarily disable it, to see if doing that would solve a problem on a Web site. (Doing so a few days ago had solved a similar problem on another site.)

But a few seconds after clicking the button to turn it off, and the button changing from blue to gray, the button automatically changed back to blue, turning Ghostery back on again.

So I tried the other extensions. (I have just a few.)

Each one behaved exactly the same way!

What has changed? What is going on?

I'll run a virus scan, but can't think someone would bother to write malware to do something that trivial.

Hello,

I have a PC with Windows Seven, and a local network 1Gb/s (wired, no Wifi) with a NAS. When Firefox is open, the speed of my local network slow down. It takes about 30 seconds to open a big picture on the NAS when Firefox is open, and 0.5 s when Firefox is closed. Same thing for video. I can't read a video when Firefox is open. With Chrome or other browser all is ok... Firefox version is 91.0.2 64 bits, but same issue with previous version.

I have made a new profile, a new install of Firefox, shut down my firewall and Antivirus, Opening Firefox in safe mode, repair Firefox, but no effect...

Any help will be extremely appreciated!

Thanks!
