This week Facebook decided to stop working properly on Firefox. The image below shows what happens on first attempting to run Facebook after the computer starts. It will hang like that indefinitely. If I close the Firefox tab and run Facebook again it will work. Why does closing the tab or browser make it work on the 2nd attempt? Please note: This not a cache cookies issue, it happens regardless of whether I've run Ccleaner or not. That is the question. A real world analogy would be something like this... I open a porch door then open the front door but the front door won't open. I close the porch door, open it again, then the front door opens. Do you see what I mean. Nothing has changed except opening the porch door a second time which has no physical impact on the front door. I'm probably not describing that well, it's as if doing an unrelated thing a second time makes something work. I've started to use Chrome for Facebook now, I'm fed up of Firefoxes problems lately. Another problem I'm having is a strange Youtube anomaly: https://support.google.com/youtube/thread/77200164?hl=en Particularly annoying. Thanks for any help.

If I open a website containing grafics which should be embedded from "datawrapper.dwcdn.net" the space where it should be displayed remains blank. An example are is the site spiegel.de, at the page, where Corona numbers are visualized. I see for a second, that "datawrapper.dwcdn.net" is called, but nothing gets displayed. I have the firefox 82.0.1 64bit on a Windows 10 Home system. No blocking add-on is installed.

I'd like to start by saying that this has happened after several previous updates and i have now turned off automatic updates to help thwart this issue. Firefox updated yesterday and my add-ons that previously appeared in the menu bar on the top right were gone, as were the add-ons themselves as far as i can tell. I installed the add-ons along with a few new ones, but they don't appear in the menu bar. I went to manage add-ons, all but one are showing that they do not have short cuts, and the one that does, i don't seem to have an option to add the short cut to the menu bar.

If they have to be hidden, that will be very inconvenient, but more importantly, i'm not sure how to even use them as i essentially have no interface with the short cuts at this point. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

Do i need to revert back to an older version of Firefox? I'm on a mac using 10.14.6 Mojave.

Thanks,

Steve

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

I use MailChimp exclusively and place their sign-up forms on multiple websites. On the iPad it works just fine in FF.

But suddenly after the latest browser updates, MailChimp form code is rendering like HTML 1.0 and not picking up the formatting even when I use a plugin for embedding code.

Below are screen shots of what it looks like on dozens of sites and what it SHOULD look like, taken from my iPad which still works OK (winnigop.org).

MailChimp claims they did not change anything so I have to assume it's the browser.

How to fix?

Hello, I am using a new HP computer with Firefox as my main browser. I use two screens. I have had problems with Firefox for the past couple of weeks. I usually have a couple of windows of Firefox open. One on the first screen with multiple tabs and another on the other screen. I also run chat programs, Discord, Antivirus programs, Zoom, Slack, and a few others.

Firefox crashing has also crashed other programs. I have had Discord crash a few times and Displayfusion crash as well.

I updated FireFox to the newest version. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled. I updated Windows. Flash is turned off. My video drivers are updated. I checked for viruses and spyware. I did have some Bit Coin Mining malware detected, but it was quarantined last week. All scans now are clear.

Hey Everyone, Facebook was working fine on my desktop until yesterday when Facebook decided it wasn't and switched me to its Android version 'for a better user experience' which (as usual with FB) means it's worse. For example I can search FB Groups but I can't open any of them. Also It tells me I have to switch to Messenger' but the install link doesn't work so I'm probably missing all my messages. Please help - I don't want to use a different browser, I like Firefox :).

I'm running FF 56.0b9 (64 bit) on Windows 10. It got really slow and laggy. Like multiple seconds of latency after I type to see the letters and tabbing fields. I cleared the cache hoping it would fix but still the same.

Then I couldn't comment on Youtube or open the drop down under my Youtube account icon. It would just show a blank section with a spinning wheel. So I gave up and decided to reset FF.

After I reset FF, I went to look for my extensions and addons to reinstall them and when I click on the Addons puzzle piece icon in FF, it opens up a new tab with a blank page (see attached) with the addons menu items on the left (Addons, Extensions, Appearance, Plugins, Services) and a white main page with a grey box that says What are addons? After explaining what they are, at the bottom it says "when you are connected to the internet, this pane will feature the best addons for you to try out."

When I click the Extensions menu item on the left, it takes me to another blank page (screenshot attached) that says "You don't have any addons of this type installed" with a button that says "Learn more about addons". When I click that, it takes me to the previous page.

The search box in the upper right yields no results no matter what I type in there.

How can I get to that page that shows all the different addons and extensions where I can search for the ones that I need so I can install them?

Thanks.

I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

Back several versions ago, a Firefox update moved tabs to the top of the screen, just below the header and above everything else. For me, this is totally counter-intuitive. So I restored the older version of FF and disabled updates. Well now we're at the point where some pages aren't working and I'm being forced to update (v82). And of course, the problem has returned.

Is there any way to return the tabs to a position below the address bar and above the page itself?

And while I'm at it, is there a way to customize the looks of the tabs so that they once again look like the file folder tabs that they once did with the curved top corners? For me, this made them more easily identifiable as tabs.
