Hey there. To get straight to the point, whenever I am watching a YouTube video on Firefox in full screen, every so often the screen goes black then slowly fades back in. I have no idea how to fix this issues and it is not my computer that is causing it (doesn't happen on other browsers, my computer was tested for a variety of problems and nothing was wrong, etc). I have also looked through Firefox Reddit help pages and the support articles on the Firefox support website but have found nothing to help. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated! Thank you :)

I have made Firefox my default browser, and set Google as my default search engine.

I'd like to keep it that way, BUT ...

Every morning when I come to work and open my browser and begin to search .. Yahoo comes up .. or Bing ???? I delete them, and again set Google as the default ... BUT FIREFOX CONTINUES TO REVERT TO YAHOO, or BING SEARCH RESULTS  ?!?!?!?!?!?

Even when I deliberately open Google and search in Google .. the results appear and then suddenly, a new window pops up with Yahoo results, covering up the Google results????

How can I make Firefox respond to the default search setting I choose????

This is intolerable. If I can't get ride of Yahoo and Bing and all these other inferior search engines, then I'm going to go back to using Chrome.

Does anyone know of a Free antivirus program that is any good and still supports Firefox?

Firefox can't seem to hold on to, say, a banking website or web page when I navigate away to another app, such as to answer the phone!

I'll be on a banking website, and when I get back to Firefox from the call 1 minute later, it will greet me with the login credentials page.

If I'm trying to login, and I'm on the 2fa page, and I answer the phone call to get the code, when I get back to Firefox, I'm no longer on the 2fa page, I'm back on the login credentials page.

If I'm trying to log in, and I'm on the 2fa page, and I navigate to the email app to get the code, when I get back to firefox, I'm no longer on the 2fa page, I'm back on the login credentials page.

The situation forces me to use text messaging for 2fa when using Firefox.

I tried recreating the situation in the Chrome browser, and it doesn't seem to suffer from this problem. I navigate away to the email app, come back to Chrome, and I'm still on the 2fa page.

The situation exists for most banking sites, but is not exclusive to only banking sites, as it occurs on many other types of websites, as well, requiring 2fa logins.

Is there some setting in Firefox that I'm overlooking that causes these websites to default back to their login credentials pages just because I went to another app on the phone for a second?

When I try to customize the toolbar in Firefox 115.10, the browser tries to change the page to the customize toolbar / overflow toolbar page. However the page flashes on and then reverts to the normal browser page. The page showing customize toolbar/ overflow toolbar, is transient and does not last. So I can't even customize the order of the buttons on my toolbar. This wasn't a problem a few days ago before the switch to this latest version. In particular I am trying to change the position of the "home" button to the left side of the address box. I just can't bring up the customize toolbar page. I'm not talking about the position of the add-on or extension buttons...just the home button. Hope this is clear. By the way, I've even tried this in safe mode to no avail.

Homemade Home Page and Virtual Filing Cabinet

I made a private homepage years ago made up entirely of links to web-based AND local folders and files that are grouped into columns of categories like banking, medical, insurance, budget, etc. I keep it off-line on my desktop. I wrote the code so I could place an external link to a bank for example, next to a local link to the folder on my computer where I download statement pdfs from that bank and other bank files. The web page links displays: MY BANK Chkng/Debit Statements Credit Card Statements Bank Information The top link goes to the bank web page on line while the three lower links open folders on my computer where I save pdfs, txt, images, etc from the bank. Firefox opens the folders as "Index of file:///C:(folder path).

My personal home page is laid out with groupings like this for all sorts of information and associated web links: broker, vendor invoices, medical test, taxes, social security, health insurance, subscriptions etc. Today we get .pdf files with all sorts of information and no help organizing it for easy access. The Firefox browser has become the perfect tool for me. But I learned HTML coding years ago! Not so easy to do for others.

Today, many entities have on-line access that provides downloads like invoices, test results, payments, subscriptions, and much more that replace paper. Creating folders to hold these documents with their own local links on your web/local homepage makes sense to me.

While you can use "File" on Firefox to open a local folder or individual file, you cannot save it as a link. However, you can copy the path and transfer that to an a href=" line of link code in your homepage and build on that method. It's amazing how many types of files can be displayed in a browser that are locally stored. Even a link to a spreadsheet file will open that spreadsheets application. Having a varied list of links with quick access is worth the code-writing time. I wish there was an app to help anyone make their own custom folders and links to the contents in a "my homepage.html" . Is there a product idea in there for you folks?

My Firefox browser is somehow corrupted with foreign language features. See in the picture that much of the text is in English - the selected and preferred language. It is what the Settings are set to. But notice that bits and pieces are in some other language. I recently made a trip to Spain and used translation features while there - but those was all reset to English. I've gone into Troubleshooting mode; I've restarted; I've reset and restarted. But I can't seem to get rid of the gibberish. WTH!!!! All copies of Firefox, on all owned Mac machines (i-Phone; Mac Mini; I-Mac Pro; I pads) are set to English. About the only thing I haven't done it uninstall and reinstall Firefox. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Device: Surface Pro X SQ2 OS: Windows 11 Home for ARM (Up-to-date at time of writing) Firefox Version: 125.0.3 (AArch64 up-to-date at time of writing)

I am having an issue with Firefox and video playback, specifically on YouTube. When I play a video in default view mode, the playback is super choppy / low frame rate. When I change to theatre view or full screen, playback works perfectly.

I've tried incognito windows and troubleshooting mode with no improvement.

Microsoft Edge works fine.

Not sure where to go from here.

Recent issue, April 2024. Had version 124 Firefox on Win10 computer and went to Help - > About to have Firefox check for updates. This has worked just fine up until now. The message "Failed to check for updates." is shown in the About screen. I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox with the same results. Have also un-installed Firefox, un-installed Mozilla Maintenance, then removed Firefox data from App Data folder in user directory, then re-installed with the same results. Also, now when I access a local media server, I keep getting the message "Firefox is installing components needed" and that never goes away. Any ideas?

Do Firefox menus appear differently in Windows 10 than they do in Windows 7?

In Windows 7, I see the normal system menus - square corners, light blue menu item highlights, 3D column line on the left, dark drop shadow below and to the right of the menu.

In Windows 10 I notice differences - gray-highlighted menu items, rounded corners, no drop shadow, etc.

I'm not using any code to style the menus.

Please see attached images.

Thanks to all who respond.

Hi....

I've been using the same firefox (installed every update) for over 10 years now and a lot of bookmarks have been accumulated. They are from different sources for different reasons/subjects/interests etc... I think when I reached ~430.000 or something like that it really slowed firefox down in a way that even clicking on a folder in the "bookmark symbol bar" (the one underneath the URL address fiel) takes 2-3 sec to open up and show the containing bookmarks. In the bm-manager going from one folder to another also takes a few seconds. I've now deleted about 40.000 but no change it's still lagging. and deleting 1000 takes about 1h.

I've looked but so far I couldn't find another tool or a better way to manage all these URLs WITH their title.

I still want to keep them, but managing them has become so slow and tedious. So if you have any suggestions especially for other tools to manage them....

I also think the possibility to export only a part of them (selected ones, or specific folders) would be helpful; maybe also a tool to clean up the database? (like defrag did for harddrives?). or split it to differnt files? I don't know.

I know 400.000 bookmarks are extreme... but well....

How default new page sites are selected? Is it possible to propose a new one?

I thought that featuring https://www.openstreetmap.org/ may be interesting (it is a Wikipedia of maps - with open data dataset contributed by various people, that anyone can edit and is already quite useful).

I think that it may be of interest for Firefox users.
