I am running Firefox inside Windows Virtual Desktop and I have had several issues with performance. At times the I will only have 6-8 tabs open and the entire application locks up and is unresponsive. I'm unable to do anything until I can kill it from Task Manager. Even after I have stopped the process it appears that there are still processes under my user that don't go away. In the same manner, I've had the browser lock up and the screen goes completely white and again has to be closed out through task manager. I have turned off Hardware acceleration, turned off any proxy option, only have last pass running as an add-on and I'm running the latest version.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hallo!

I have searched for a long time in your instructions on changing E-mail address. I can not find where and how to change my old Email address to my new one. Maybe you do not need to do this in Firefox?

On installing Firefox today, I tried importing my passwords from Chrome. It seemed to work with no error report but, when I accessed any sites, the saved passwords that Firefox auto-filled were all incorrect. I'm not going to reset scores of passwords. Is there something I should do, apart from uninstalling Firefox and reverting to Chrome?

Tiktok and YouTube bypass my Firefox autoplay settings. By default, I set Firefox to disable autoplay of audio and video. I seldom use the website, but when I do, it blasts music at me the moment I visit the site. As a headphone user, that's really annoying!

To a lesser degree, YouTube does as well. If I'm not subscribed to a channel, it will autoplay the channel's featured video on the Home tab. Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinaeyckvideos

Spotify Web is not working in Firefox Beta for Android. Message displays that ""Playback disabled"" because of unsupported browser. I am not opening website in incognito mode. I also turned Enhanced Tracking Protection off. But still message is showing and content is unplayable.

Please bring DRM or Google Widewine support in Firefox as these sites block other browsers.

P.S: Works completely fine in Chrome Android.

Dear Sir/Ms, in my attempt to synchronise the old and new Firefox Beta browsers, I experienced an issue that was perplexing, to day the least. I could not sign in to my account on my Android mobile using the new Nightly Beta browser.


Initially, the login form would not accept my password and bizarrely, my old (disused and deleted) email address was shown, as though it were my current account email address. I closed the tab and started again, the procedure to sync the browsers. My password now accepted, I received the Authorisation Code, but it was not accepted; my old account email address again appearing, as though it were my current account details.

I attempted to use the QR code facility on Nightly Beta to sync the browsers, but my iOS Preview Beta browser is unsupported.

I searched the Community Forum for answers, but there were no questions that dealt specifically with the problem I was experiencing. I then attempted to contact Mozilla Support directly, to ask about a solution to the problem, but in order to do that, I had to sign in to my account, which, I was still unable to do. The only solution I could implement was to reset my password. Unfortunately, owing to replacing the old Preview Beta browser with the new a Nightly Beta browser on my Android mobile, I no longer have access to my Bookmarks and whatever else I chose to save.

I'm bringing these issues to your attention, because I think you will appreciate the fact that there are technical issues that need to be addressed.

Kind regards,

Stanley Davis

For sport, I use Strava, Garmin Connect, Komoot, Runkeeper that all use embedded maps. They use either openstreetmap or google. On the main google maps, I can pan the map (click the map, hold it and then move the view), on the embedded maps within these website, I cant navigate by clicking and dragging. (It is the same on the main openstreetmap site (although this is how it is supposed to work, when i try the same in the chrome browser it does work).

When I try it in chrome, the panning works for these site. There must be some mouse setting that I am missing.

I already tried restarting firefox with all addons off and turning off hardware acceleration.

cheers, Gerard

WHAT HAPPENED: 1. I signed out of Mozilla on the owners laptop and entered my own account information 2. As I signed out of my account, I checked the box "delete data from this device", so that my data would not be saved. 3. The owner entered their account email but Mozilla did not find it so the user created a new account using the same email address as prior.

THE PROBLEM: all data is missing including bookmarks, passwords, etc. It appears Mozilla sees the account as new. Even when the user logs into a site they frequent regularly, the site does not recognize the user and requires login and password and verification of the user. Seemingly like the device is registering as new to the site.

STEPS TAKEN TO RESOLVE - UNSUCCESSFUL 1. I used the restore bookmarks option to restore to a previous copy

    A. according to the user, the restored bookmarks are not current

2. I verified that there is only one profile for the user 3. I verified that the profile has data in the local drive and the profile default is set to read the profile on the local drive

NEED HELP: 1. Restore the account completely so that all sites recognize the device and all bookmarks are restored

Thank you for your time and help to resolve this situation! Dawn
