Is there a way to change the speed unit used by Firefox when downloading?

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth. Or, to compare the download speed to any of the speed tests I have done

Hi. I was a constant user of Firefox until a year or so ago. The bloat came in and I followed the hordes to Chrome. Chrome now has similar problems, (21 instances for 3 sites? Really?), so I looked into Firefox once more and found it has apparently been updated. I took the plunge and reinstalled looking forward to easier browsing again. Hmmm.

I am a user of ebay and pay via Paypal. (Just saying that, I guess some of you know what is coming now.) I use Eset Internet Security which has always been very secure, easy to manage and has never given a problem with ebay or Paypal in any way with Chrome. I have it set to open a separate secure browser for Paypal transactions. Using Firefox I cannot get any Paypal transaction to complete.

It has a variety of issues which I seem to meet at random on the way. Sometimes it just refuses to start, the circling icon sits in the small secure browser screen which is empty white and spins ad infinitum. Sometimes it gets to an authentication screen with a picture of a code to type in, except the code is missing and the box is empty white. If I refresh, it shows the code but the first entry is always incorrect then the second entry, if I am offered it, is accepted and I continue to login. Once the login details have been entered and I see the message confirming the data has been sent to www.paypal.com, sometimes it stalls here again and never gets beyond that. Very occasionally I get past this and see a yellow pling with the message "Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_ID or redirect_uri)". Well I am reporting it but I'm not holding my breath as this problem has been around for months if other people are to be believed.

I have cleared all cookies and caches and restarted Firefox. Nothing. I found a thread here where someone advised turning off location blocking for Paypal. No difference. Payments go through fine with Chrome so it can't be my security settings external to the browser, (Eset), and it can't be a Paypal issue. What is wrong with Firefox that such a necessary piece of functionality is either broken or is so unusual to set up that so many people, (I've searched so I have seen them), cannot make it work?

Any advice on this will be warmly welcomed.

Bonjour,

J'ai un souci! Firefox (pc windows 10 2004 64bit) s'ouvre correctement mais rien ne s'affiche, même pas les "options" ou se "connecter au compte". J'ai d'abord exécuté un dépannage puis une désinstallation (avec revo, donc complète), redémarré le pc, réinstallé avec le dernier téléchargement en date.

A l'installation j'ai obtenu l'alerte suivante:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll n 'est pas conçu pour s'exécuter sous Windows, ou il contient une erreur... 

Le navigateur démarre mais toujours le même problème. j'ai donc utilisé sur l'invite de commande, "sfc /scannow" pour vérifier que ma DLL n'était pas corrompu, mais rien à signaler. Par acquis de conscience, j'ai quand même désinstallé Microsoft Visual C++ 2015, puis réinstallé avec le fichier de Microsoft. Rien n'y fait et j'avoue que je donne ma langue au chat...

Merci à ceux qui pourront m'aider.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

I did make sure to disable Accessibility Service using these steps below:


   Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.
   A warning page may appear. Click Accept the Risk and Continue to continue to the about:config page.
   In the about:config page, search for the preference accessibility.force_disabled.
   Observe the Value column of the accessibility.force_disabled row.
       If it is set to 1 then do nothing.
       If it is set to 0, double-click on it to open an editing field, type 1, then click the blue check mark button or press the Enter key to complete the update.

Reproduce: I enabled Arabic as default language for Firefox in MacOS.

Issue: Now, I have a mixture or Digits format between Arabic Numbers & Hindu-Arabic Numbers. As you can see even with Firefox version from About window: 81.0.2 ‏(٦٤ بتة)

and Developer Tools too, see attached screenshot.

Note for Translators, Arab Countries don't use same digits formats.

- Eastern Arab countries are using Hindu-Arabic Numbers (٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩) - Western Arab countries are using the Arabic Numbers (0123456789 which are universal in this era)

References:

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_numerals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Arabic_numerals

Workaround: I switch back to English when needed. And usually keep another browser for development.

How It should be: I am from Algeria (a Western Arabic country) & an developer (hobby). I expect to set Arabic language with Arabic Numbers format (and It is already set in MacOS preferences)

Possible Correction: - Split Arabic Language locale into 2 (East & West) or Have a special settings for locale formats - I thing most programmer are using dev tool in English even Firefox in mother language. Not sure how to fix this. It is similar to CLI that are not translated to cursive and RTL scripts.

Long time bug and annoyance for me. Firefox is my default browser for 10+ years.

When concentrating on reading a page, and slowly scrolling at the same time, the mouse cursor can drift off the scrollbar even though I have the mouse button held down. It is because I am focused on the page, the mouse can lose perfect vertical sliding action, so the cursor drifts into the page. Soon it can no longer hang on to the scrollbar and the page jumps back to the top.

Is there any fix that can stop this from happening ? The mouse cursor should stay on the scrollbar as long as I have the mouse button held down.

A couple of days ago, I had to completely reset my laptop (Lenovo Ideapad 110), and now I'm having a problem trying to sign in to eBay.

I've entered my details fine, then eBay asks for verification via Captcha - which I pass fine. However, Firefox pops up a 'need to resend data' window, and when I say OK, it essentially just refreshes the page, meaning I have to do the Captcha again, which brings up the window again - and so on until I just quit.

When I look at the add ons/ extensuons list, it is there but it no longer appears and therefore I can't clip to Evernote which is my standard go-to way of keeping things quickly.

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times but it makes no difference.

I often post adds with lot of pictures in several different sites. But when click on "add picture" Firefox always opens window for picture upload in upper left corner of browser. Try to position it in the center or any other position is of no avail, because window keep opening in upper left corner of Firefox browser. Every time i have to upload a picture, I must drag File Upload window from upper left corner to the center. Since I have a big 43" pc screen this is very annoying. I have to every time reposition it to the center of Firefox browser window. Why Firefox or Win 10 do not remember last File Upload window position but keeps opening it in upper left corner ?

Say you have 2 screens arranged vertically. When you maximize any window on the screen below, nothing appears on the screen on the top. Normally, logically. Except when that window is Firefox. When Firefox is maximized on the screen below, a shadow displays at the bottom of the screen on top, see the attached.

Other chromium-based browsers don't display this shadow, other windows of other software do not, the shadow shown by Firefox only displays when the window is maximized, not regular. And displays no matter the theme (here in the picture is using the default, which shows a titlebar like Windows' default one).

Any idea how to fix it?

Hi hello, I have an issue which might be a bug.

I already have 1 Firefox window open. Firefox account is logged on, with sync enabled. I can access my synced bookmarks and extensions are available as usual.

Now, if I open 2nd Firefox window via these methods: 1) right click at Firefox program at taskbar and click 'Open New Window' 2) at other program (e.g. MS Outlook), I clicked the URL in an email and it will open new Firefox window

The issue is, the 2nd, newly opened, Firefox window are not logged in with Firefox account. My synced extensions and bookmarks are not available.

This issue does not occur if I open 2nd Firefox window from within Firefox itself, like clicking the burger menu (3 horizontal lines at top right) and click 'New Window'. That's why I believe this is a bug.

Hope anyone can help.
