Hi there! Oftentimes (but not all the time) when I am switching between windows on my Mac (so swiping with three fingers to the left or right), Firefox freezes. The very top of the screen near the search bar will turn partly black, the computer will automatically switch between windows, and my cursor will turn into a spinning circle. I have to switch to a non-Firefox window, wait, and switch back to Firefox to change it. This only happens with Firefox. Any advice?

Thanks.

Yes, you can - only since the update to Firefox version 73 the extension "xul" has been changed to "xhtml", so now you will have to enter this in the address bar :

chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xhtml

Since this address give me error

I used Windows function to close all windows to close firefox. Big mistake. I had 4 windows open and for some reason, Firefox decides to only save 3. I lost my main window with a few hundred tabs open. I realized that when I opened firefox back up and immediately wanted to restore it using Recently Closed Windows, which usually works, but not this time, because it's been 4 windows. I backed up the sessionstore-backups folder but it seems like the "upgrade" files are too large for it to handle and the recovery files don't contain the missing window.

Help?

On Windows 11, latest version, lots of addons including tree-style-tab, so empty header tabs are in the file for my pinned tabs.

Good Morning Mozilla Tech Support: Bookmark spacing NEEDS to be part of your Firefox User > Tools > Settings. When I go into 'Tools' > 'Settings' > 'Bookmarks' I NEED to be able to select and adjust Bookmark 'Spacing'. The current Firefox "mandatory default' double spacing in Bookmarks is grossly wasteful and very time consuming to navigate. Please fix this problem... User control of Bookmark Spacing seems logical and is a reasonable request. Thank-you for understanding and HOPEFULLY fixing this Mozilla oversight and serious User Control issue...

I don't know what caused this but my searches at eBay are screwed up. This started happening after a recent Firefox update but it could have been initiated by an errant keystroke. I don't know.

I often do "wildcard" searches of eBay. Now when I type "(" for a wildcard search, some other word (or words) that I had previously searched for appears in the search bar and a menu pops up with "Recent Searches", "Saved Searches" and "Saved Sellers". Ironically, in that Saved Seller menu a seller is displayed that I purchased an item from, probably a year ago, but that seller is NOT in my saved sellers!!!

I've tried all I can figure to do in the browser settings to correct this, to no avail.

Now for the keystroke part... I was in the process of starting a wildcard search when this started happening. I accidentally hit the key (I'm not sure what it's purpose is) below the right Shift key (looks like a menu with an arrow) simultaneously, as well as the "9" key (for left parenthesis) . I remember a "menu" popped up below the search, but I clicked off of it in the search bar. That's when the stuff hit the fan.

BUT... it was also the first search I was performing after a Firefox update. HELP!

I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

I wanted to make a suggestion, and report a complaint, but all I get from Firefox are endless loops of discussions about things I don't care about and are irrelevant to me! Where's the actual "submit feedback here" button? Where's the What's your problem button?

I've spent an hour wandering through endless screens of help articles and discussion threads. Now I"m just tired of not being able to even report a problem or make a suggestion!

Your whole support system is a morass of failure much like a government operation!

If it matters to anyone: I am using Firefox to play 2 online games: Settlers Online, and RailNation. I am using Vivaldi to play another instance of RailNation.

When I switch from one tab to another or the other browser for any length of time I get disconnected from both Settlers Online and from RailNation. And sometimes I have to restart Firefox or clear cache to get them to reload! This did not happen in previous versions. Win11, new Dell Inspiron, if that makes a difference.

What ever happened to multitasking? What ever happened to persistence?

Hello.

My internet fluctuates constantly while using the Firefox browser. It uses full capacity for 5 seconds, then uses almost 1 mbps internet for the next 5 seconds, then uses full capacity for 5 seconds and so on. I tried a lot of things but it didn't work. I have 100 Mbps internet and connect with 5GHz WI-FI.

Things I've tried:

-Reset Firefox -Run Firefox in troubleshooting mode -Turn off Anti-Virus and Adguard Ad Blocker -DNS flush -Formatting the computer

I don't have such internet fluctuation problem when using it in Microsoft Edge browser. It works seamlessly.

Apart from this, there is another situation that I encountered once, as long as I do not format the computer on which I installed Firefox, this internet fluctuation occurs constantly.

I'm finding videos on certain websites stop responding to mouse clicks, or the spacebar key (play/pause shortcut), soon after opening full-screen mode.

I ran the SEO Site Checkup flash test for one such site and it reported no Flash being used on the site. (https://seositecheckup.com/tools/flash-test)

Seems to be no problem when playing YouTube videos.

Not able to reproduce the problem in Google Chrome.

Firefox loads only the top line of Facebook, with the Facebook logo, and nothing else. Troubleshoot mode does, after several minutes, load Facebook properly, but only for one session and then it's back to square one for any further sessions. Firefox has no problem, apparently, with any other website I use. Edge browser has no problem with Facebook at all. There is no error message. This problem exists in Windows 10, identically on both my HP desktop and my Lenovo laptop, and started at the same time on both, a couple of days ago.

For several months now, my main Yahoo mail tab and also individual email tabs within Yahoo close automatically. It sometimes happens when I'm opening an attachment or switching to another Firefox tab but most of the time it happens randomly

I've turned on the setting in Firefox to get notified before closing a tab and also tried pinning the Yahoo tab but the glitch still happens. I'm not using private mode.
