I'm using the new version 89 of Firefox. Often, when I'm reading an article from a website, the screen suddenly zooms in, the letters become huge, and the page no longer fits on my computer screen. Am I doing something to cause this? It's really annoying and it has me wondering if I should abandon Firefox after all these years for something else.

Does anyone else have this experience? I've only noticed it with version 89?

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

It used to be the case that, while scrolling, after taking my fingers away from the mousepad, that the pages I am viewing in Firefox would continue to move down, slowly coming to a halt. Now, instead, it comes to a sudden halt the moment I stop active scrolling, which honestly makes scrolling down long pages take a lot longer and I really just don't like how it feels. This only recently started happening, does anyone know how to make scrolling go back to the old way where it would keep moving in the direction you sent it in for a short while following?

I don't now what happened but my tab bar has a different look to it now. Possible a Firefox update changed the look of my tab bar, but nonetheless, it is now harder to see the tab bar. It seems to have a more transparency look to it making it harder to see the tabs. How do I change the tab bar look to what it used to look like, which was easier to see? Can someone help? Thank you.

I am unable to do funds transfers between my bank accounts and it tells me I have "no accounts are available of this transaction." The "From" and "To" fields are unavailable. I used to be able to do this on Firefox with no issues; however this seems to be affected by the latest browser update. I tried deleting my history, cookies, cached data, etc. as well as refreshing Firefox; yet I get the same result.

I called the bank and they said there are no issues with my accounts. I logged into my account using my bank's phone app and also Chrome, and both of those worked. (see attached screenshots)

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hi Folks, I am running firefox on my macpro 3,3GHz 12- Core Intel Xenon W Graphics AMD Radeo Pro 580x 8 GB, I am using an apple XDR display.

Every so often I experience a white flash, just within the Firefox window, not across the entire monitor.

I have tried a completely new and full install of Firefox but same problem.

I wonder is anyone had any thoughts or ideas  ?

I have two problems since installing Win 10 update KB5003637 on June 11. FIRST, I get the "Firefox is not your default browser" dialog box every time I open Firefox. Windows Settings shows that Firefox IS my default browser. I have restored Windows default (Edge) and re-set to Firefox, but I still get the "not default browser" message. SECOND, when I have Firefox open and click on a link in an email, instead of the link opening in a new tab, it opens a second, "generic" version of Firefox; one that does not have my Bookmarks or Passwords.

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??

I use the session restore option, but when I open a new firefox window (by detaching a tab) and forget to close last the window with most tabs, the restored session is the single tab that I detached. This has happened a couple of times, but I can't remember exactly how to solve it, just that there was an action that would 'pop out' the previous session, like opening a new window and closing the last tab there. any tips?

Hi: Can anyone help me to recover BOOKMARKS which I've found missing after today's starting my Firefox Browser/Thunderbird and trying to use one of the BOOKMARKS: this is for the first time I've lost them just by opening the Program after I've about 3 weeks ago Upgraded my Windows 7 to Version 10 - under Windows 7 they were working properly without any 'accidental loss'. Question: - is it possible to use the Bookmarks-Back Up file to re-install them - IF NOT, what is the other way to reliably re-install them ...? My PC-system is: Windows 10 Home, Ver 10.0.19042 (20H2), CPU; Intel Pentium D 935 3.20Ghz (dual core), x64-based processor, 32-bit. I'd greatly appreciate any SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS how to accomplish this. Tony H.

It's very convenient to drag a url from the address bar into a bookmark folder, unless the folder has a lot of entries, then scrolling the list by dragging the new bookmark off bottom or top of the list to look for the intended destination, is too fast & prone to drop off top or bottom.

I guess this is something to do with scroll physics ? but I tried a few hopeful looking possibles in about:config without success - very impressive all that, I had no idea.. but... it would make my work easier if I knew what to adjust.

There are three regions where the cursor has different effects. In the central region - where bookmarks and folders are displaye -, moving the cursor does not cause scrolling. In the top & bottom regions the cursor causes scrolling up and down respectively. I imagine there is a parameter to control the proportionality between the distance from cursor to region-boundary & scroll-speed. Is this how it works ? Can I adjust that, or is there some other way to make this interaction more controllable ?

I'd be grateful for a reply, but even if not, I want to express my gratitude for the great work of this project. It is amazing to see the resilience of open software against the tsunami of commercially driven development - good though some of that is. It almost gives me hope for humanity ;-> Thank you all

My problem started after being on a Betfair portal site and selecting Firefox as my browser, declining to select Internet Explorer - since then my cursor has speen spinning - i looked at Task Manager to see constant activity and two copies of Firefox, so I entered "Cursor spinning" on the Help - and found the thread above. Great! But how do I resolve the problem, I'm not an IT person and I don't know where to enter any "kill..." commands, whatever they are.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?
