I am using AOL as an email account. Many times I am looking at my email, clicking delete or spam, then maybe open one/two/three different emails, read them, delete or save, and my whole system freezes. I have to turn off the pc, then logon. I then open CC Cleaner to clear out the issues only to find that there could be 5000+ items in my browser history, a few hundred cookies all in that short period of time - 3 minutes all this stuff clogs up my computer. CC Cleaner will remove all this junk. I then open up Firefox, get into AOL, start another session. Could be I am able to continue to read my emails for a short period or a long period of time, just reading email, then the computer freezes up again. I have to turn off the machine, turn it back on, get into CC Cleaner and clear out the 5000+ browsing history items and cookies. There is no way that I can capture this CC Cleaner Screen information.

One thing that I thought about is that AOL is spamming me with thousands of junk ads, flashing in and out, on the right side of the screen as I read my email or even just open AOL. Since Yahoo took over AOL and redid AOL in the image of Yahoo, things are a horror. I made a formal complaint with the Ad Agency (forgot the name), opted out of all the ads that I am allowed to opt out and nothing gets better. The Ad Agency is of no help. Does anyone have an idea what is going on / what I can do to stop this?

Firefox, like most browsers, is full of jargon and terms which are never defined. So, for a new user, what should be simple become complicated. Developers obviously thought that everybody understands, but it is not true. It would be helpful if there was a term definition for each term and symbol used. I find my self in a kind of rabbit hole when trying to do things, and even when I ask for help, there is no term definition help.

Hello I am running 115.12.0 Firefox ESR June 11, 2024 release 64 bit on Windows 7 Professional 64bit. Which I still have to use till I can afford a new PC in a few months.

When I have a streaming youtube music link open when I try to open another tab the Music Stops playing and Video Freezes and cant have the audio in the background continue.

I have tried several Add-on's that are suppose to fix it they do not work. Have also tried the following about:config edits

widget.windows.window_occlusion_tracking.enabled set to false and media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground set to false Before these would fix the issue till the update to the above update now they no longer work.

Have also tried using the Troubleshoot Mode which makes no difference.

I can no longer use my camera on firefox, firefox displayed some message about camera when we were trying to chat, but I missed it, I have granted relevant permissions on the site, that we use reularly. The camera icon on the address bar appears red, and I noticed that in Windows security, it lists firefox access requests, but shows no way to grant these requests.

I am not tech minded so please if anyone could keep it simple, I would appreciate it.

I really appreciate everything you do, but I am a boomer (Loud and Proud), I did not get born with a device attached to my hand, I am a digital imbecile.

With all that in mind, it has become too difficult to keep up with the digitalisation, at least in my case. So when you send me suggestions and update procedures I end up just closing everything, too much to read, too stressing, but the suggestions keep coming every time I open the firefox browser. Can I not just keep the version I have and decline any new versions.

I also have a problem in regard to language, it is set to English, but I do not care for US English, I would like to have GB English, but somehow it won't accept that.

What can I do?

Kind regards,

Corel asked me to do a screen shot of the issue: Attached When I look at the changed screen, There is an icon infront of the Web address line that looks like a robot. When I rollover it this statement comes up: Browser is under remote control reason (Dev Tools) All of the address bar is inpink. I copied it but color does not copy. when I did the screen shot the address line is not copied. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1449321?utm_campaign=questions-reply&utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email

daThis is still frustrating. I do not like to use the browser when something else appears to be in control. I have MacAFee and run a scan but nothing shows up? If developers are following my browser, I should beable to turn this off.

I am using Firefox 127 on Ubuntu.

When I press the Control key, I often lose focus in the window I am currently viewing. This is annoying as it prevents me from copy-pasting for example.

Sometimes the focus is back when I release Control, sometimes it is lost and I have to click again on the text field. It does not happen on all websites, for example support.mozilla.org works well, but it happens on duckduckgo or overleaf.

It does not seem to be the same as existing issues such as ["show mouse when press Ctrl" of Ubuntu] (it is disabled) or an addon (the problem still happens in safe mode).

In case it is useful, when I press Control the tab bar background goes slightly darker, see attached images.

Thanks for your help :) Nicolas

When I used to take screenshots, they would be automatically named with the date, time, and part of the text captured regardless of language. A few days ago and with no reason I can discern, it now saves any non-English screenshots with something like this "Screenshot 2024-06-23 a[...].png" instead of "Screenshot 2024-06-22 at 08-02-28 Politics Policy Polit[...].png" (usual for English text and what I used to get with all languages).

Which means I have to manually rename screenshots. Does anyone know how I can fix this because I am working on a project with lots of screenshots for topics from different languages?

Hi,

I'm switching from Edge and have a frustrating issue.

In Edge I am very used to having separate behaviour for links with left and middle click.

i.e. from Gmail, if I left click a link it opens in a new tab and switches to the tab, if I middle click a link it opens in a new tab but stays on the current tab

In Firefox both seem to be controlled by the single setting.

I have looked in about:config and tried changing a few flags but cannot seem to find a combination that works how I want it.

Can anyone help?

This is a real dealbreaker for me and I will switch back if there's no solution :(

TIA

When playing any Ren'Py web build on Firefox Windows, the frames freeze while entering inputs. Depending on what is being displayed on screen, sometimes it will still continue despite the mouse movement, but most things just completely freeze up. Once the inputs stop, the frames will skip ahead to where they should be. This only seems to happen on Windows, as I was told it is not repeatable on Ubuntu using Firefox. This is also not an issue on Chromium based browsers.

I use Firefox with a VPN. I also use the Chameleon extension to alter my fingerprint. When I log into Messenger.com it asks if this is me and gives my actual, physical location. I've checked in settings under location and it doesn't show any sites requesting my location. I have it open in one of the tabs where it's showing my location. I have block all location requests checked. How can I get Firefox to not show my physical location?

Also on this page, it gives I'm using Firefox and the OS I'm using. Both are supposed to be changed for fingerprinting protection.

This looks like it could be a big security loophole. Any help is appreciated.

Every so often while browsing, for several FF versions, now, hover card functionality on some sites will simply stop working, even after a complete browser restart. Eventually the cards come back on their own.
