Hi -- a Firefox problem has started recently and has since happened numerous times.

In this case, the PC was restarted from 'Sleep' mode. It does happen in other situations though. Out of sleep mode all apps have come up normally - except Firefox. It is still running, I can see it in task manager. I can see it on the taskbar, but I cannot switch to it, as I can the other apps. I can also see it on the alt+tab view; pls see attached screenshot prnscr.1.jpg, which shows the alt+tab view. Here you can see that Firefox displays in some minimized form, along with Firefox history and an Editplus document. However, Firefox is not accessible; I have to close Firefox from the taskbar and then reopen it. Otherwise, Firefox is working well.

Can you advise?

Firefox Version 79.0 (64-bit) Windows 10 x64 Pro 10.0.19041.388

Thanks, Jeff

IMPORTANT NOTE: I already have the Check mark clicked in Settings to "open links in tabs instead of new windows" so please don't suggest that.

I tend to have a lot of tabs open (more than 100) in Firefox. Until it recently updated, no matter how many tabs I had open, if I opened a new tab, it would do so in the same window. Now, after the update, I have about 60 tabs open and anytime I open a new tab from my current window, it will after a few seconds switch to opening a new window, which is very annoying.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thank you very much for your help!

Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

Hello,

I'd like to make the scroll bar thinner and don't know how, all the advice I have found online either doesn't work or isn't clear enough for me to follow.

The scroll bar is ok on a new tab but becomes wider on websites and sometimes creates a horizontal scroll bar.

Hi,

I have had a really strange problem since working from home where i get broken calls with my softphone. To start with i put it down to my ISP/Router, but after some digging i noticed i am getting 400ms ping responses to my router at certain times of the day. All other devices on my network get <2ms ping responses. Reboot my surfacebook and pings go back to <5ms. After doing some testing i realised that it was Firefox causing the issues, soon as i close firefox, pings drop back to <2ms. Open firefox and work work on it for an hour or two and they creep back up to 400ms, close it and they drop. It's a test i have run multiple times as i didn't believe a browser would do this. Because i work in IT and i haven't reloaded my laptop for at least a year i thought i'd reload a fresh build of Windows...with just drivers and firefox....same problem. I have also run a stress test on the CPU / Memory to see if that had the same results, it doesn't.

Hello, Good day. I am using firefox in windows 10.

I have a peculiar issue of menu language automatically changing to arabic. I manually changed it many times but it changes back to Arabic often more than 10 time in the last 3 months.

Wondering if this is a bug or act of any malware or virus... or automatically changing based on region of use... but there is no option to choose / enable/ disable regional changing configuration.

Kindly advise how to prevent Firefox changing automatically to Arabic.

Thank you.

Tried it with and without these running and FF fails to save my tabs, regardless of shutting down the browser or the OS. This does not occur on Win10 or my Linux distros. I've been trawling forums and help pages and the Interweb casually for weeks now, without success, but getting quite frustrated now; so posting this as a last resort. Thanks in advance of any suggestions.

salve, Sono uno sviluppatore web. Ho notato che dopo gli ultimi aggiornamenti Firefox si è allineato alla linea di Chrome e Opera, creando un problema non da poco. Il problema è che non rispetta le impostazioni header per NON memorizzare la pagina in cache. Più in particolare le pagine da me create impostano il Cache-Control a "private,no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate,max-age=0" ed in più imposto l'header PHP (tramite .htaccess) per non memorizzare i file tipo php, js,css,html. Aggiornando la pagina tramite l'apposito comando "Ricarica" il browser mantiene in memoria i file obsoleti (js e css) non aggiornando la cache come richiesto. L'unico modo per aggiornare i file è "eliminare la cronologia del browser". La stessa cosa accade ricaricando gli iframe.

In prevalenza facciamo delle applicazioni WEB per cui è necessario che i file siano sempre aggiornati in base alle ultime modifiche, da cui la necessità di NON memorizzare in cache. Questa pecca ci ha spinto a SCONSIGLIARE ai nostri Clienti l'utilizzo di Chrome e Opera in favore di Firefox. Spero prendiate in esame il problema. Attendo un Vostro riscontro.

Since the update 79.0, I'm having problems with downloads not starting, if they are directed to a different server via the download button. Before, the extra window would briefly open and close and then the download dialogue would pop up as to where to save the file. This is no longer happening, the window briefly pops open, but it doesnt let me save the file anymore. Instead i found out, that its creating a bunch of .part files in the Appdata/Temp folder for each download that didnt start that way. What still works is rightclick-> save as, however, that's not very comfortable. Any idea as to what change may have caused this behaviour and how I can fix it?

I have had Firefox set to delete cookies upon closure for several years now. I recently noticed that some cookies were present as soon as the browser was opened, which should not be happening.

This set of cookies reappears every time I open Firefox, even if I manually delete all the cookies, and even if I delete the cookies.sqlite file in between closing Firefox and reopening it.

This problem occurs on two machines with Firefox. One with Windows 7 and one with Windows 10. I have Sync configured to keep bookmarks the same on both machines. I was wondering if this may have something to do with it, as the same set of 'zombie cookies' keeps reappearing on both machines?

Hi, My Firefox and Thundebird internet download / upload speed is slow. I I try with Chrome download speed, it is 7-10Mb up and down. If do same with Firefox, then it is different. Many times it is 0,2Mb, but some time also 5-6Mb Usually upload are faster and it is 5Mb. (Use Chrome, then always faster) It seems to me as random, because many times speed OK and many times not OK. If compare test result with Chrome, then always slow.

I use ESET virus control and try to test it without virus control, but same result.

Also in Thundebird HTML load are slow. Small picture in e-mail can reach 30 sec.

I try to change different things in options, but no result.

Can anyone help me with this?
