I had to reinstall Windows recently. For some reason, Firefox no longer seems to keep me logged in to Lastpass and Pushbullet. More than half of the time I load a new session, Lastpass will give me a cookies notice but does remember my details in the fields, whereas Pushbullet shoves a login screen in my face and I have to go through the hassle of signing in with Google.

My browser has always been set to erase everything on close, but this has never effected extensions, so I'm surprised it suddenly does so. I don't think my settings are any different than they have been previously. I've tried making the lastpass and pushbullet websites as exceptions and playing with various privacy settings but am unable to replicate the 'correct' behaviour I had before.

Am I missing something here please? Has something changed in recent versions of Firefox?

Settings are: Standard tracking protection Always do not track Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed is checked with Lastpass.com and Pushbullet.com as exceptions All options under 'Logins and passwords' unchecked Always use private browsing mode, remember browsing and download history, and remember search and form history are all unchecked Clear history when firefox closes is checked, and in settings, all boxes are checked

New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

Can anyone tell me why the following html code doesn't work:

Your browser does not support the audio element.

I must say, it does work in Microsoft Edge, but in no other browser, including Firefox. And how could I make it work? I want the audio file to start playing when the page is opened, in the background, no controls, no loops...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello everyone.

I tried switching Firefox (Windows 10) from Polish to English. (It is nice to see a program in your native language. However, most manuals, tutorials, forums etc. on the Web are in English, so using English version of apps wherever possible feels straightforward and consistent). I found one functionality that is browser language dependent for no reason - availability of search engines. Specifically, allegro.pl (Polish auction site). It's there by default when Firefox language is set to Polish. When I switch to English, it disappears along with other default Polish search engines, only to be replaced by English ones.

When I try a "manual" setup of search engines, allegro.pl is nowhere to be found. Firefox settings -> find search engines - no official allegro search engine (just some fan-made add-ons). Go to allegro.pl -> Firefox search bar - I expected the icon of magnifier with green plus sign that would add the search engine of current site - again it's not there.

Is there any workaround? Cheers, Rafał

Hi,

A firebox browser automatic update earlier today has resulted in various pages I visit subsequently crashing the browser.

It is particularly problematic because one page that now crashes is my Barclays Bank login page, which I normally check every few days.

I know that rollback of updates is not recommended, perhaps not even allowed, but surely if an update results in a page like Barclays crashing the browser then there must be a fix pending?

Please do not reply with "try another browser" or "try your phone" - I don't do banking on my phone, and find both Chrome and Edge packed with too much ad crap, making browsing painfuly slow.

I would prefer you to reply with "Here is how to fix it so you can continue to use Firefox..."

Kind regards,

R

Yes, I have set the options to open, see attached. If I go to a website and click on a PDF it will open in Adobe Reader. When I go to Outlook.live.com for my email and click on the PDF it opens them in a Firefox preview. When I print them from Firefox it takes an average of 5 minutes per page. If I download and open in Adobe it takes seconds to print the entire file.

All PC's mentioned below are on the same router and LAN, and all are using Firefox 86 x64 on Windows 10.

I have been a Firefox user for many, many years (I started using browsers in the 90's, 'nuff said). But having recently reinstalled a PC, I found myself unable to initiate sync on the new Firefox install there. I kept getting the error "NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource." in a red box when I entered my password. Perplexed, I tried creating a support ticket on another of my PC's (let's call it #2) - same error there when trying to sign in to Firefox support! I then tried to use that browser to access my account by going to Account Settings -> Manage Account. I was met with a circle animation - and a completely blank webpage.

This post is being created from my third PC, where, for some odd reason, the Manage Account function actually works, and where I was also able to sign into support. I made a change to my bookmarks on PC/Firefox #2, to see if sync was still working - and it did come through to PC #3. After that, I was finally able to start a sync on PC #1 (the newly installed one).

But I am still unable to do anything with my account on PC #2. Can't sign in to support, can't access Manage Account. And this cannot be purely about the profile or installation, as the issue was affecting PC #1 as well.

It seems like Mozilla's account management is really wobbly, and my prime suspect is the shift to "Firefox Accounts" on the support pages recently. But I'm open to being proved wrong.

Just hoping someone out there can tell me what this issue is, and how I fix it. The fact that I was unable to sign in to my Firefox Account from a completely new Firefox install makes me very uncomfortable. And my primary PC (#2) is still unable to manage that account, or sign in to the support pages.

Thanks in advance.

I've been having the problem of websites loading slowly on Firefox for a few days now. Firefox itself loads quickly, but opening Youtube for example takes a very long time.

I have this problem since I have a new internet line, yet this is most likely not the problem, since on chrome this problem does not occur.

As a solution I have cleaned firefox and even clean reinstalled it. However, the problem still occurs. I suspect that this is a problem related to my profile. Even opening it without addons does nothing.

Any ideas?

I recently attempted to log in to a credit card processing site with the username and password stored in Firefox. Firefox auto-supplied just my username, and when I tabbed to the password field to enter that info, the username disappeared. If I tried to enter the password and return to the username field, the password disappeared. The site naturally read this as an incorrect login attempt. Tech support for the site suggested this was a browser issue and recommended I switch to another browser, and they advised clearing the cookies and cache before each time I log into their site. Sort of defeats one benefit of having a computer.

I'm using version 86.0 of Firefox released 2/23/21 -- my last successful use of the site was 2/15/21 so I'm wondering if anybody else has seen this happen in version 86.0?
