Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

I am a software engineer. I love Firefox but I believe that a memory leak may have developed. The problem goes back a couple of months. I have one instance of Firefox open with three tabs opened but the task manager shows a large number of instances of Firefox being open and using a lot of memory. Currently there are nine instances of Firefox shown in the task manager. Look at the screen shot of the task manager that I uploaded.

I often have a lot of tabs open but I rebooted and opened a new instance of 

Firefox with only 3 tabs. I did open a new private window at the same time as the session I explained above but then I closed the private window. The memory leak might be the private window remaining in memory after it was closed. My OS is Windows 7. Yeah I know MS has stopped supporting it but I hate up dating the OS.

Thanks, Bill Smith

I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable. Firefox works fine on my PC but I also have a new Mac and on that machine the scrollbar is totally unusable on all sites, even with a stylus. I saw a couple posts about creating some custom code for this but I'm not a developer. This can't be only my problem? How do I just make it wider?

One of my uses of Firefox is as a tabbed reader. So I will have arxiv pdfs open, local pdfs etc. I would like to Sync these views across devices. It seems that Sync ignores any local tabs. For example file:////home/me/books/this_great_books.pdf

I suspect this is to avoid syncing settings files. But is there a simple path-based over-ride for this?

Or perhaps another extension would solve this.

Hello,

I have a problem with Firefox. I think this is a bug. I have tested it in Firefox 85, 86 and 87.

When I press Alt, the complete title bar with the menus File, Edit, View, ... appears. Afterwards, when I click Minimize, Maximize, Close, New Tab or List All Tabs, the title bar is minimized again but nothing else happens. Those buttons just don't work.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Is it likely to be fixed sooner than three months/six months/years? Please tell me how I can add anymore useful information. Thanks for your support!

Hello! I'm a sort-of new Firefox user, and I just noticed some differences in behavior between Firefox and Chrome.

In Chrome, when I drag a tab out of its window so that I can move it into another window, if the window in question only has one tab, then dragging that one tab will hide the current window and show the background, allowing me to easily drag it into that background window.

This is especially useful when both windows are maximized.

In Firefox, I cannot do the same. Dragging a tab around a window with only that one tab open does not hide the current window, but rather, drags the tab around the browser window. I recognize now that this is because I can drag the tab to other places such as the Bookmarks menu, and if the above Chrome behavior was replicated, I would have a hard time doing this with just one tab open.

Though, I think the way to merge a maximized one-tab window onto another window in Firefox is to just drag the window a bit so it stops becoming maximized, then drag the one tab onto the window behind it. Is that how I'm supposed to do it, or is there a better way?

On another note, is there any way as of the moment to replicate Chrome's behavior with regard to this tab dragging situation? If not, thank you for your time, anyway. I'll just get used to the new way of doing this for now. Thank you all!

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

Today i turned on firefox running the latest ubuntu platform and had colored squares and dots all over the web pages. If I move the mouse or type the squares colored black, blue, aqua and green move with the mouse or typing all over the display like snow. I have gone over the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reloaded mozilla firefox. The only way I can stop this is to go to safe mode. I have downloaded two other browsers today and do not have this problem with the other two browsers, or with any of the software programs on the computer. Any ideas?

Some tabs crash at random. Cannot reproduce at will. Started happening ever since I've upgraded to a Ryzen 3600 CPU. RAM with the XMP profile passes the entire 2 hour-long 4 -pass Memtest86 without errors.

The crashes happen on all versions of stable Firefox and on Firefox Developer's Edition. They also occur if there are <10 tabs open as well as 100 tabs open. I have 5-6 very common extensions on FF stable (Bitwarden, Gesturefy, uBlock Origin, Facebook Container, Open Tabs Next to Current, Wikiwand, and the Stream Detector), but not a single extension installed on FF DE and still it crashes too.

Some of many crash logs: bp-87b13e5c-1bc5-4f68-864b-95d6b0210227 bp-1751032b-df93-404e-822f-c13020210227 bp-e7840772-f24e-439b-b56b-ca8c50210227 bp-629bbf6d-b007-4b4a-8b76-b2d5e0210227 bp-dd9c0c07-61bf-44a4-b5a6-9f4170210227 bp-07cf5b11-39c5-4802-a448-7e6920210227 bp-97139c27-1633-4bab-a876-1bc030210227

These are all just from today, and these are not even all of today's crashes.

System details: AMD Ryzen 3600 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM (XMP profile 2) MBO MSI B450 Tomahawk (latest Beta Bios v7C02v1H3 - happened also with stable BIOS, so I put the latest BIOS on if there are possible BIOS<-->RAM problems but still crashes remain) Nvidia GTX 1070Ti (driver v461.72) Windows 10 Pro 20H2 v19042.804

Any idea what's causing this?

It appears that Firefox 87.0b3 version has removed the Library - Pocket List menu item. Yet, through the about:config options, has retained the ability to activate the 'Save to Pocket' address bar icon.

This makes no sense as there is now no option to have a 'Pocket List' item selection. At least I couldn't find an option for this. That is without adding another extension.

Having the 'Save' option without the 'List' option is counter intuitive.

The Library-->Pocket List Menu item should be restored.

Thanks.

Many extensions ask for access to your entire browsing activity. While many extensions claim they are not doing so, this is not a technical restriction, but a policy restriction of their own.

In Chrome, there is a option within the browser to restrict extensions to operate within certain domains. For example, you could say that Honey is only allowed to run on *.amazon.com domains.

Is there a way to configure this option within FireFox? If not, what's the best way to request this feature be added? There are a number of extensions like Honey that are helpful for ecommerce and product research, but I want to provide a technical restriction to what data they can collect from the browser by restricting them to specific domains.

Thanks! Moose

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want
