Been having an issue with Firefox, where the "A" Key on the keyboard acts as a left click action

I have tried resetting and reinstalling firefox multiple times but it doesnt fix my problem I didnt have the issue before, and I've tested all other browsers and on other apps my desktop and i cant replicate the same issue

I've tried using different keyboards, but it doesnt fix it

This gets pretty annoying as if i leave my mouse on the google icon during a search and type anything involving the letter "a" it clicks on the google icon and sends me back to step 1

I love using firefox, and would love to keep using it, hence why I am regardless of the issue, though life would be much easier with out it xD

Any help appreciated <3

I have 3 PCs, all running Firefox, all signed in to the same account. All say they are syncing. But one is not in fact syncing bookmarks, and reports it was last connected 2 years ago.

Clearly my 3 PCs are somehow connected, since they all show up in "connected services". But though the one I am now typing on routinely reports that it has successfully synced, it hasn't in fact connected to the 2 other PC's Firefoxes for the past 2 years (according to the image uploaded below). I somewhat doubt that actually, but the fact is that the 2 other PCs have identical bookmarks sets and are clearly syncing, but this one has a different bookmark set.

How to force it to connect? Disconnect it and reconnect it? Delete Firefox and reinstall?

The issue is when the youtube video is being viewed (only happens on youtube), it suddenly freezes with a healthy grey bar and a connection, while the audio continuously plays on. After the freeze or stutter, the video never gets out of sync with the audio but actually jumps ahead to where tit is. Meaning I'd lose out on 1-3 seconds of visual footage which I have to rewind to watch again. After the rewind the video doesn't get stuck on the same spot but further down it happens again. It sometimes never happens on some videos I watch but the ones that it does happen, If I went back to watch it again (refreshing tab or finishing the video then coming back) It happens again. Usually repeats within 5 minutes of it happening at minimum. Which is very annoying.

At first I thought this could be a issue on my display drivers. I went searching for solutions all over the web. Common reasons I got for this was that my internet might be slow. Which is bit true ig. But I can view up to 1080p videos without buffering or any problems. So Idk how that's the case. Another reason I got was that it might be hardware acceleration, which I turned off before I got the problem again. Another suggested add ons might be the case. So I turned some off and under more advice used a completely new portable app of firefox (no logins, addons or settings changes) and I got the same results. I also reinstalled display drivers. Disabled the hardware acceleration of the new clean app. And still got the issue. The only time I didn't get the issue was when I was using Chrome. Or Edge.

I've cleared cache and all data,history as well. So I'm really stumped. Someone asked me to make a completely new windows local user admin account and try again. And it happened there as well.

Edit : While trying to get evidence of this, I've discovered that sometimes if I rewind twice or go back more than I usually do the stutter tends to usually repeat on the same place. You can see it in the video.

Hi, suddently i can't delete history browsing in firefox. No matter what i try it still not clear the browsing history. What first i do is "Forget About This Site" option to delete single history form a website but it doesn't work. Then i try to delete browsing history from setting, setup to clear history when firefox closed and even i delete history with "Everything" option it still doesn't work.

I don't remember exactly, but if i not wrong i've got this issue since upgrade to 91.0.2 version. For your information, i use Firefox-bin version in Gentoo Linux with i3 Window Manager.

Any help will be apreciated.

Hi everyone!

My FF 91 cannot delete history, no matter what. Not via the "delete" key press on the history list, not by the "forget" button, not via "delete history and cookies" in the settings, nothing! What may be the problem and how can I fix it?

Thanks!

I'm an avid keyboard user, and I'm trying to use the alt + n shortcuts for switching tabs, while watching in a video on a website (more specifically unity). But every time I press alt + n udemy interprets it as skipping around in the video. And firefox aborts the switching of the tab. This is literally driving me crazy.

After change the network connection to cable, or to a different Wi-Fi network, Firefox will lose connection and will be unable to access any website unless its is restated, closing all Firefox windows.

The problem happens when:

1. I have the Firefox opened, I disconnect from wife A, Firefox lost connection, then I connect to Wi-Fi B, all other browsers can connect, but Firefox does not. (if Wi-Fi A and B are from different router)

2. A start the computer disconnected, I open the Firefox, I connect to internet, any other browser that was previously opened can connect, but Firefox does not.

OS: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20210912 Firefox version (91.0.2. It occurs in the last two years, it is so annoying)

I am getting the "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" error on websites that are clearly not security threats. Examples are twitch.tv, youtube.com, gmail.com and since I use duckduckgo, I cant even search something because it redirects me to the website duckduckgo.com/(whatever i searched), which also creates the error. I don't believe it is a network error because it allows me to visit all of these websites when I am using the chrome browser. Sometimes when I get the error, it has the yellow border around the screen so I can click on advanced options and click "go to the website anyways", and sometimes that option is not there. Also, the error will happen on and off for some websites. For example, yesterday I wasn't able to access gmail.com because the glitch was happening on it, but today I am able to visit the site just fine.
