Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

Pocket 'View List' stopped working in Firefox

I've been using pocket daily for a long time, and just recently the 'View List' feature (i.e. view the pocket website page with my saved links) stopped working in Firefox. That is accessed in the normal way using the Pocket icon in the address bar, or with the link: https://app.getpocket.com/ - they both go to the same address.

When that Pocket 'View List' page is accessed, it gives all indications of having loaded fine, but all that shows is a completely blank white page with the horizontal line and faintly greyer section at the top of the page, and absolutely nothing else.

Firefox version: 78.6.1esr

I'm pretty sure this was broken on a recent update (of Firefox). I'm also pretty sure many other things were broken in Firefox by recent updates - never had Firefox so damaged by an update before - things like on Amazon website pages (to pick something well known), product images randomly don't load (refreshing gets them to load), pages randomly display garbage (refreshing brings them back), etc, pages load fast but elements on page are not active (can't be clicked) for several seconds on complicated pages like an Amazon product page - never had this happen before recent Firefox update - I don't know if this is all related, but it feels like it is (and that Firefox has been broken in many ways only recently).

All these things, including viewing the pocket list, still work fine in Chrome.

Anyone have the post issue in Firefox? Or the other issues just recently? Is there a fix for this?

Thanks

If I have for example the text replacement ‘fa’ for family active and want to tipe the address ‘facebook.com’ it replaces the ‘fa’ automatically with family and the outcome is ‘familycebook.com’. Normally the text replacement should just replace the text if you tipe a space after the text that should be replaced.

Firefox prevents the typing (~) key from working on the typing.com website, and unfortunately I can't go through the lessons on the website because of this problem.

I tested in other browsers if the problem persisted and it appears that only firefox exhibits this behavior.

I also tested starting the browser by the way that disables the extensions and I continue the key without working.

Please, does anyone know any solution to this problem? I loved the Firefox browser and I don't want to leave it just because of that.

I am part of a charity organisation which is using Google Drive to store records in the "cloud" and a means of multiple members accessing those files. A form has been created which needs a date to be entered. The form was created by another person with a drop down calendar or by entering the date using dd/mm/yyyy. When I open the form through Google Drive on my computer using Firefox (my browser of choice)the drop down calendar does not operate and the date is formatted MM/DD/YYYY. Through "Options" on the home page the language is set to English (Great Britain) and the date is said to be taken from my Windows settings. My Windows settings for the date formatting are correct at dd/mm/yyyy. If I change browsers to Chrome the form is accessible with its correct formatting. Your assistance would be appreciated

Hi, I use FireFox (edit - 82.0.4 from LM repos) for my browser when using Linux Mint (I use it on WIn10 as well but this query is specific to LM). I use ClamAV for virus scanning. ClamAV has found Js.Coinminer.Generic-7132237-0 in /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/puhh983l.default-release/extensions/adblockultimate@adblockultimate.net.xpi I've searched and found some mention that it might be a false positive but nothing confirming that info so far from my searching. What have I done so far: Done a fresh reinstalled of ClamAV following the ClamAV install procedure. Checked ClamAV is up to date by checking log files and latest available on the ClamAV website. Done a fresh install of FireFox Reinstalled add-ons one by one. ClamAV only finds the Coinminer once Adblock ultimate is installed/added. I'd like to keep Adblock ultimate as it does what I want it to do easily and efficiently but am happy to remove it to avoid the coinminer (if it is a problem and not a false positive) Can you help or have any advice. Thanks

Hello

I thought it was a phone or keyboard issue in my phone and it might be.

But I have noticed that in Firefox for Android it auto-capitalises password fields. This is not a good feature. I continually enter passwords wrong as a result. It may happen in other apps but I've noticed it is not the case in all of them. And I have new devices that have the same problem. Has anyone an idea of how to turn it off please?

There is archived topic: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1201650#answer-1069428

Where people share that the search just does not work properly in ThunderBird. I myself after I met the same issue in my TB (search just did not work for me since the very first time I started using TB) - tolerated it for one year, I just was just going to WEB gmail interface to perform search, and then it was enough. I have tried thebat, claws and foxmail - all of them have their flaws, but the foxmail did the best EVERY sense EXCEPT ONE - somehow it makes my very old messages to become UNREAD it is annoying, but search works greatly in foxmail.... All in have decided to go back to thunderbird and try to resolve issue with search, I have removed the global-messages-db.sqlite many times. I did not help me... It is sad. And the old thread was archived like nothing happened. :) It is funny... May be issue should be RESOLVED instead of IGNORED?

Ok, this is an annoying thing which keeps tripping me up.

Oh, great and there is no "preview" I can see. (I'll see what happens when I get to the post part)

Fine. But this is NOT what I am supposed to see.

Attention to the right of the input window is the (x) button.

Also clicking on the input fields, not much exciting happens.

This is what Chrome shows me on the same site:

If I click on the clock icon (shown here in red) I get this lovely pop up.

Yes, I have the "default" ubuntu install of Firefox. Using .... Snap (or what ever it is called)

If I knew/thought on "DAY ONE" when I updated, I would have removed it and gone with the official installation.

I still can't find a clear (safe and easy) way to get rid of the supplied version and get the official one installed all the time keeping bookmarks, cookies, tabs etc. (That's another story.)

But is this something I haven't set in Firefox, or a ..... bug?

Hi all, I wanted to protect my Thunderbird software with a password so I did the routine of setting it up.

One day I went to enter T-Bird and then decided not to so I hit "escape" to abandon the password entry, figuring the program would just shut down. It didn't shut down. It opened.

It seems that if you hit the "x" or "escape", the program bypasses the password and opens without entering a password.

What have I done wrong ??

cheers, thank you :) john@oldradio.ca
