My Firefox browse is frequently unable to log into many financial sites, most importantly my Scotia bank. this happens almost every week or 2 and I am forced to use Microsoft edge or Chrome which log in fine. This can sometimes happen as frequently as once a week or it will go 2-3 weeks without problems. Is this a Firefox issue or are 3 banks, 1 credit union, Credit Bureau, government and medical sites all to blame?

About three months ago, I changed the AO3 site skin to the Low Vision option, because I wanted to see if I could fix the then minor issue of not being able to see bold with my screen-reader, NVDA, when reading fics on the site. Some of the bold I knew to be there because I had personally put it in.

When I changed the skin, I was dismayed to find I could not only still not see bold, but I could no longer see italics with NVDA either. The AO3 sidebar menu was also tucked away behind a dropdown button, but I could open that up and get to the controls, so I didn't mind that so much. The formatting, however, posed a real problem, since italics are used for, among other things, emphasis, telepathic speech, and the speech of Pokémon in fanfics featuring humans who can understand Pokémon. So I definitely wanted this problem fixed.

I thought I could simply change the site skin back, but to my further dismay, switching back to the Default skin did not restore my former view of the site's pages. I began trying other things, seeking advice from other tech-savvy acquaintances after I'd exhausted all the possible fixes I could think of to no effect. Here is a list of everything I've already tried:

  • As mentioned before, changing the site skin back with the buttons on the site
  • Soft/Hard-Refreshing the page.
  • Logging out of and back into my AO3 account to artificially end the session.
  • Restarting the computer, and NVDA, by extension.
  • Disabling each of the three extensions I have in Firefox, just in case one of them had caused the issue.
  • Viewing the site while logged out to see if that made a difference.
  • Cleared browser cache, and when that failed to help, also cleared specifically the AO3 cookies.
  • Created a clean Firefox profile with no settings changed and no extensions added, pasted url of one of the pages I was using as a test into the address bar. Still no formatting visible.
  • Viewed page in Incognito mode.
  • Briefly thought I had a solution when I found the Page Styles submenu in the View menu, set the page to No Style. Got my old sidebar back, but not the formatting, and lost even that change after a refresh. Not ideal solution.
  • Downloaded the portable version of Firefox, opened it and pasted in a url again. Still no formatting.
  • Reluctantly, opened AO3 in Google Chrome. Could see all the formatting with NVDA when logged out, and when I logged in, could still see the formatting.

I also discovered Reader View while testing some of these things, and this allowed me to read the text of a fic or chapter with all its formatting, but that view doesn't include the Author's Notes, or the comments, and that sacrifices some of the nuance of those because I don't see the emphasis on any words/phrases without the formatting.

I have contacted the AO3 support team, but they are just as confused as I am and don't know what could have happened. They say they haven't changed anything on the site that they could pinpoint as causing this problem.

I have tried asking on the BlindTech email list I'm subscribed to, which is where I was given the link to Portable Firefox, but I have exhausted all their ideas as well, some of which were included in the above list.

Now I come to you. Please, if you can shed any light on what might have caused this problem, I would deeply, sincerely appreciate it.

Hallo,

is it possible to automatically perform downloads in the library one after the other?

I have about 30 or 40 downloads in the list (videos), 2 to 5 GB in size, which of course take time to download. I have to start every single download individually and sit next to it.

Although I have a fast line (230 MBit per second), it still takes a few minutes for each file.

Is it possible that firefox or an addon is monitoring this list and after completing the first one downloads the next one and then gradually all the other starts?

Thanks

Roland

I do a lot of autoscrolling, initiated by clicking and releasing the mouse wheel and controlled by moving the mouse away from me or toward me.

A particular problem for me is that ending the autoscroll cleanly often fails. I try end to end the scroll by clicking the mouse wheel again. Sometimes this succeeds, but often it doesn't and I get scrolled very far beyond where I wanted to stop (after making repeated wheel clicks and/or left mouse button clicks). Sometimes, totally out of control.

So, two questions:

1. What is Mozilla's intended way for the user to terminate an autoscroll event?

2. Can it be that the above problem is also related to keyboard lag (keystrokes often delayed by 1-2 seconds or don't ever make the screen) which I have been experiencing for some time? Maybe some mouse clicks are getting lost too, or are being delayed. I see in the forum and elsewhere online that a lot of FireFox users have had keyboard lag problems, in posts from many years back to the present, with few successful fixes. What is the best way for me to fix this? -- or is it a bug that needs attention?

Hi all!

I am forced to use a specific version of Firefox to use a particular site. The version is 52.0.2 (yeah, I know - don't start). The site also needs a specific version of Java (JRE8 - Update 161). I am on Windows 11 (64 bit) and I also have a regular version of Firefox installed (fully updated to 109.0).

I have successfully installed (multiple times) and I am starting that version of Firefox with it's own shortcut which is configured as

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox Foo\firefox.exe" -p Foo -no-remote

In the first session, I go to Tools->Options-Advanced-Updates and set it to never download updates. If I now exit and start again, Firefox installs updates and upgrades to a new version namely 60.x.x

How can I prevent this behavior?

For the last couple of months I have had problems streaming some of the channels that come via Sling when I try to watch them on my Dell Latitude E5450 laptop. I can see them fine on my regular t.v. but now not on the laptop. That's a huge change in the last few months because for years I could stream every Sling channel to my laptop. Since my t.v. does not use Firefox, that suggests the problem is something Firefox has done. Not surprising, I guess. Probably happened when it was fixing some other something it screwed up. Nonetheless, any ideas for how to resolve this WITHIN Firefox capabilities? (And don't suggest it's Sling's fault. Sling streams just fine, thank you very much, in Edge.)

Hello everyone, I was here recently since nothing in Firefox wanted to load, but I fixed that by using old sessionstore.jsonlz4 so I guess that session was corrupted.

New problem: Everyday when I start my PC and Firefox it keeps crashing over and over until I use an old working sessionstore file again. So it seems that everytime Firefox tries to save my current session with nothing changed/ different from the backup it corrupts it and I have to use the old backup again - which obviously sucks since no matter what I open/ do today it will be "deleted" again tomorrow.

The only "interesting" thing the crash report shows is MozCrashReason: Failed to load critical module "resource://gre/modules/WebNavigation.jsm" but I will share the troubleshooting information below if that helps.

My only idea left is to save the most important tabs and wipe everything else off my Firefox to see if that helps - but if it doesnt then I have to restore my old session yet again and all progress is lost again no matter what I do.

Any ideas are appreciated especially since I didnt change anything relevant about my system or Firefox in recent times so I have no Idea where all of these problems come from all of a sudden.

Hello Community,

About a month ago Firefox had disabled all of my add-ons, as well as broken all of the icons for my bookmarks. I later learned that this problem had also completely cleared my browser history. I saw that the computer had reset my places.sqlite file, and that I had a new "places.sqlite.corrupt" file. I tried renaming that corrupted file to get back my old history, as well as refreshing Firefox, but neither of these strategies seemed to have worked. Does anyone have a way of restoring my data from my old places.sqlite file? Thanks!

I have tried with hardware acceleration both on and off. I have over 8gb of free memory, CPU at a low percentage used, and a low commit level.

Dear community,

I have Firefox 109.0 (x64) on Windows10, x64 on two devices. (stationary pc & notebook) I do have a relative weak device creating & serving a webpage (ESP32 module dynamically creating the content).

Firefox on the notebook, the page gets instantly displayed but is initially "empty". It gets populated over time, which can take a while as the ESP32-module queries sensor data, and generates Textboxes and labels with the according data, so line by line the sensor data is added to the page.

On the stationary computer the (same Firefox, same Version, same OS) the page-loading indicator is shown and the page remains empty until the ESP-module has finished the creation and then it is instantly displayed with all content.

The strange thing: I did create a new profile on both devices to assure, that the different behavior it is not caused by an extension or customized setting. With the new profile, the behavior remains the same on both devices.

Any ideas, how I can make both devices behave identically? I would prefer the "Line by line creation and display of the web page" instead of waiting, until page load was completed ?

Best regards and thanks for any tips.

A few months ago when I updated to the latest version, as I always do, the bookmarks were not carried over. I restored to an earlier time to retrieve them and have been using an old version. Every time that I go to the program and when asked to update, I click "no." I am finding now that several websites will not accept Firefox. After 20 years of saving, I do not want to recreate, as I would have had to do at that time. Do I now upgrade to newest version and pray that my bookmarks are there?

Copycat Firefox Browser. Need to report possible problem. BOA Website states browser incompatibility download is Malware I suspect.

Have copy of file. When I went to install it I hit no to not install it and it indstalled anyway.

Setup multiple versions of firefox on my system. Had multiple icons on taskbar for for fox. coupd switch between them. on one I was logged into everything and on the new on logged out of sysnc, google accounts, ect.

I checked on it and found the desktop short cuts and one was set up correctly thru the program files directory and the other installed in a werid place. Can send screenshots and zipped up corupted version of install program.

I checked the about section on both browsers to see the version numbers and they were the same. Big Red Flag!!! If i was having compatibility issues why did i need to install the same version and end up with multiple instances of the same program installed in different areas?

Thought this was important enough to try and bring to others attention!

I'll see if I can zip the bad file up and attach it as well for someone to investigate it.

I did an avast scan on the file it came up clear, but like I said did a bunch of really wierd stuff.....

OK It would not let me attach files I have them if someone needs them.

I renamed the directory where the suspected version was located and it stopped working when I clocked on the link. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up my Registry file. Now I've got to uninstall it and change my passwords....

Hope this helps!!!

After starting Firefox, dropdown menus on websites have a delay of several seconds before the data appears and I can click. The problem disappears after a number of dropdowns are used. It doesn't matter which sites, it's some arbitrary number of selections and then the problem goes away and everything is fine until the next startup of Firefox. Menus in Firefox were not affected. Because it goes away, I've just been putting up with it.

Since v109, the problem has expanded to include all menus in Firefox as well. Same lag effect, but it appears longer now and has become a serious issue with productivity.

I'm running Windows 10 on an average machine. Thanks for any help.

I love Firefox!!! But ..

After I updated I an no longer see the bottom 20% of the text in my All Bookmarks->Bookmarks toolbar where my toolbar only displays the text of the drop down name.

It seems to be a recurring issue where new versions really mess up the spacing in the drop down menus of the toolbar mostly (not this time).

My menus are just Perfect now .. although I'd love for the menus shown in the 'manage bookmarks' window to have Exactly the same spacing as the Firefox toolbar menus (the 'manage bookmarks' window has Much larger spacing and is a bit of a pain to use due to this).

Here's my no doubt primitive userChrome.css

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, 
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {
  padding-block: 3px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */
