I can directly go to the sit using other browsers, but prefer using Firefox for my browser. Any help in correcting this issue is appreciated. Thanks, Rick.

Sync is a nightmare. It is so unintuitive! What exactly would be wrong with having separate Export and Import buttons for each of Settings, Addons, Tabs, History, Bookmarks, etc? I have a desktop box and a newer laptop I wanted to get up to date. I pressed the Sync button on the desktop ... By the way, there`s a link below that reads "Connect another device" ... Connect where? Someone is designing these interfaces who has absolutely zero imagination. Anyways, I signed off, moved the ethernet cable to my laptop, signed in, pressed Sync, and voila!, I got my Bookmarks, at least. But I have no idea how to get my tabs and windows. I tried with a "download link" something or other, but it seemed to assume I was sync-ing to a phone, and didn`t work. Any way to get my tabs?

5 hr. ago Dell Latitude, Windows 10. Firefox will not display formatting options (such as italics, bold, underline, delete, etc.) in gmail. The only way to display the options is by hovering the cursor over the blank space above the name of the person it's going to (or received mail, just to be able to delete it) until an option appears. Nothing is indicated, and I have to move the cursor until I find the desired option and then click on it. The same thing happens in Chrome. This is totally crazy-making (insofar as gmail worked perfectly until a short time ago) and I'd welcome your suggestions and input.

Dear community,

As I use a few self-made unsigned add-ons, for several years now I have been using the Firefox unbranded builds on Linux with great joy. In the past these became available for download shortly after a regular Firefox was released. Lately though things have changed. The current latest release for unbranded is stalling at version 107. So it's getting further and further away from the official Firefox, which is at 109 at the time of writing.

Obviously I'm concerned my unbranded Firefox is not getting the same security updates any longer. I do realize there's alternatives for supporting unsigned add-ons. Running a Firefox nightly or developer-edition is something I'd want to avoid, so for me these aren't real alternatives. I've also tried tracking unbranded info on bugzilla.mozilla.org, but couldn't find anything relating to this 'lag'.

Where can I find more info on this topic? Are these unbranded builds being discontinuated?

Thanks for reading, keep well!

Because of ongoing long-covid I have a couple of websites that I log into for medical purposes on a regular basis. I have registered this laptop through Firefox, and yet I still need to get a code from them every time. I have Browser Privacy set to Standard; Delete Cookies and Site Data box is unchecked; Firefox will Remember History. What am I missing? Also, I use ExpressVPN. Might this be the culprit? If so, I will live with the 2FA. I realize this is health data, but the sites do offer to register my device and it never leaves the house.

Many thanks!!

I just updated the browser. Just prior to doing that, I used used this website https://www.carpetmdinfo.com/ without any problems. Now, as click on the different tabs of this website (Home, About Us, Our Cleaning Process, etc.), nothing happens. The same website works without problems with Safari.

Does anyone else experience similar problems?

I looked at reporting the problem as a bug, but I am sorry, it is too complicated for me. If someone could replicate the problem and report it, if in fact the same happens to others, I'd appreciate it.

I love Firefox and have been using it for years. I hate Google Chrome, but I'm forced to use it once or twice a year. When I use Firefox and go to one of Google's apps, a lot of the text overlaps. I lowered my minimum text to 30% and although it's almost unreadable, I can see that the text still overlaps. This is something I've been living with for a long time. Today I tried the same Google.com pages using Google Chrome and everything looks fine. Why can't Firefox fix the overlapping text? If Google can do it, Firefox should be able to do it after all these years. The available add-ons do not work. Bob Brown

All of a sudden every time I try to sign in on Yahoo mail I get a warning "We've noticed some unusual account activity" and I have to get a text (which I pay for individually) to get a code to continue (the code I get by email which would not cost me anything never works).

Hello, I have a problem with my Logitech MX Master mouse and zooming on images on websites. I had been using Waterfox for a decade or so and the last update destroyed Last Pass which I use many times a day. So I uninstalled it and installed the latest Firefox (as of a few days ago). The problem is that when I open an image on (as far as I can tell) ANY website that allows zooming the zoom is incredibly sensitive and the only was I can get it to behave "normally" is to scroll the wheel a tiny amount, like a mm. I have tried a number of fixes to slow down zooming in the config and none have worked. The ONLY thing that works is going into the Logitech options for Firefox and disabling smooth scroll. This makes scrolling so jerky that I actually get a headache. The one that seems logical is general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel, change the general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS to 500 and general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS to 250. Did that and no effect. I've tried ridiculous values like 999 and 1, 999 and 998, or 2 and 1 and there's no change at all. Even changing smoothScroll.mouseWheel to false has no effect. I need to do this hundreds of times a day and it's killing my productivity.

So the only thing I can think of is that the Logitch Unifying Software is incompatible with Firefox and ONLY Firefox. Is there any fix for this that actually works? I will be forced to uninstall it and ditch Lastpass (which is not an option for me, it has to work).

When connecting a HDMI cable to stream video content from the Smithsonian Channel and PBS Passport sites to a TV monitor, the signal produces a black screen with sound. Any repeated unplugging and reconnecting of the HDMI cable can also cause Windows to crash (bluescreen). Play DRM content is allowed. Extensions were disabled. For reference, this does not happen with Chrome. I’m running Win 7 Home Premium with i7-3520 in a Dell Latitude E6430. I'm not a programmer. Where do you suggest I start? Thanks! Paul S.

FF 109.0.1, but have noticed the problem for a couple of versions now.

Firefox loads very quickly, as do new tabs, after refreshing the FF installation, HOWEVER, IF, immediately after refreshing, I add ANY addon, and it does not matter what addon it is so please don't try telling me it's because a certain addon slows down the loading of FF, FF immediately takes at least 3-4 seconds to load the homepage when first opening the browser.

Without any addons installed it opens the homepage immediately.

I have tried completely removing FF then reinstalling it and installing my addons. I have tried refreshing FF and then installing my addons. I have tried over 20 different addons, and they ALL have the same result of FF taking much longer to open. Is it the end of the world? No. But FF did NOT used to behave this way and I dislike having to wait 3-5 seconds for the browser to open to the home page just because there is a single addon installed.

And for the record, the only addons that I actually want to USE are New tab override and uBlock origin, but this behavior occurs without those addons installed after a refresh of FF and ANY addon installed.

If you know why this is happening or know of a fix, that would be great.

Am using FF 109.01 (64) and the latest Windows 10 (64) ver. I uses their Virus program.

With my bank security settings I have check marked to not use 2FA Bank home page asks for a security code anyway.

This has happened to me months ago and all of a sudden everything was OK. ... and now it has happened again. When I use Edge, Bank home page does not ask for a security code. This is the way I would like FF to perform.

I have phoned the Bank IT Help desk and they are bafflled. They had me try a bunch of acrobats but nothing works.

Obviously there is something in FF to tweak. I am using

I have searched and searched on internet, but no solution. I have used FF since it was a baby, and I want to stick with it. Thanks

All New York Times Cooking recipes printed from Firefox 109.0 print with the error noted above (The "end of recipe bar" and "Private Note" heading, which usually print at the end of the recipe, over-print wrapped text at the top of the second page of the recipe obscuring underlying wrapped text.). This error had appeared occasionally in the past, but now is consistently present. I have refreshed my up to date version of Firefox and cleared old print settings. The error shows up on printing to two separate printers and it shows up when printing from a desk top and a lap top computer with synced Firefox, and from a separate lap top with Firefox that is not synced. The error DOES NOT show up on printing with either Chrome or Edge browsers.

NY Times Cooking customer Service has not received inquires about this error and suggested the error lay in a settings issue.

Have others reported this error?

All suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you, Fred Pintz

My keyboard regularly locks up using Firefox. I tracked the problem down to having upwards of 40 Firefox processes running in Task Manager. Disabling them or restarting Firefox only works for a few hours before the problem recurs.

Several people here recommend disabling "Use recommended performance settings," which should give me the option of selecting the max number of processes to be running.

However, when I disable the recommended performance setting, the hardware acceleration option appears, but not the process number selection. I'm finding no way to set the max number of processes.

I'm hoping for a work-around to that, or a different solution.

Thanks.

BTW, I also notice excessive processes running when I use Chrome. I'm concerned why this is happening on both my browsers.
