I have tried all of the suggested solutions here at Mozilla for how to delete a website URL from being autofilled: whenever I type 'pre', the autofill function fills in the rest of the website 'www.preply.com'. It was a horrible ESL teaching scam website, I only taught through it for a month last November then quit when they ripped me off. But now since last November, any time I type in 'pre'–I invariably see their annoying, shitty website :-( It is very annoying because it was a bad employer experience–and now I cannot ever remove them from Firefox :-(

I tried deleting it in the address bar with shift + delete, then also went into some obscure Firefox folder and deleted some file with Firefox closed (this was the supposed "solution"–it did NOT work).

Is there any way to solve this incredibly annoying issue? Or should I just switch to Chrome or Safari and give up? Very disappointed in how impossible Firefox makes deleting autofill URLS, really, REALLY BAD software programming. Any helpful or solution greatly appreciated thx :-)

Using Mac OS 12.4 and Firefox 101.0.1. After launching Firefox, a second icon appears in the "recently used" apps section of the Mac OS dock (see attached screen shot). The icon stays there and goes away, and then comes back, and then goes away, etc. This continues on and on until Firefox is closed.

Why is this happening? Never acted this way before the latest updates.

Hi there

I've had firefox for years and never had much issues. I've never had this issue before the most recent update where now youtube videos constantly stutter. It's just Firefox as other browsers work fine. I've updated my graphics card and did a little bit of research but none of the fixes quite did it for me. In the past couple days I've always had Firefox crash on me twice, which hasn't happened before either. So I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm prone to point fingers at an update. I don't install extensions or themes, so the only extension I have really is uBlock Origin but that's been there forever. I've restarted my computer as well. It is not my resources, they are more than fine my RAM and CPU and Graphics Card. Task manager shows nothing is even above 50% (CPU, GPU, Memory) when playing the video. I've also tried creating a new profile and opening up a new profile. Same issue.

Can anyone suggest any fixes or is this a firefox update bug?

EDIT: This appears to be for all videos I am playing on Firefox. It also does not matter if I set it to the lowest quality, even 144p, it will still stutter nonstop.

For some whatever-reasons (TLDR; I need to see the whole domain (including subdomains) clearly, unlike the default of only highlighting the TLD&second-level domains[1]) I want to disable the color-distinction which highlights TLD and second level domains.[2] Is there config to do so? If not where should I propose one?

Thanks.

[1]: for example ko.wikipedia.org and en.wikipedia.org will have wikipedia.org highlighted, and that's what I can't accept because ko.wikipedia.org (Korean) and en.wikipedia.org (English) is completely different site. (Some might say you can distinguish by language, but there are some English sites which shares the same domain on wikimedia.org, so you get the point here.) [2]: From the screenshot you can see only `wikipedia.org` is highlighted. I want to make it highlight all of en.wikipedia.org. (If I need to highlight everything including the site path below the TLD, I can accept that.)

In the last few weeks Firefox will not open even when using admin rights. NOTE: I have followed all available posts including multiple uninstalls (complete), deleting Firefox folders, reinstalling, etc. There have been no major (or known) changes to my Windows 10 Pro system. I run Heimdal Thor and Kaspersky antivirus protection and there have been no conflicts running both at any time. I also use Acronis Protection (I know it may seem like overkill but it works). I have turned off each of the above and Firefox still does not open. Firefox runs with no problems on my personal and work laptops. I am CompTia A+ Certified so somewhat knowledgeable (a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!) and have run sfc /scannow with no issues noted. Plus, two Heimdal support reps have logged onto my system, attempted to find a solution, found no issues with my system (Omen 880 even though I don't game). My wife is a dedicated Firefox user and wants it back.

I've added the email addresses to my yahoo contacts and changed my passwords and I am still not receiving the subscription emails. Is the setting I need to change in Yahoo or Firefox? It's driving me nuts and no matter what I do (change login, settings on the sites) I am still not getting emails from my subscriptions.

My computer is OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5.

I have updated with the newest Firefox web browser today. Now I can't open Firefox because my computer is too old for this new version. Because I have totally replaced my old one with this new, I cannot go back..

And actually, I don't know what is the right version for my computer. I think I found some very long list of old versions(https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/), I don't know which one is right for me and how to install from there - I tried some of them..

If anyone can post the link of right one for my computer and inform me how to install it from there, I'd really appreciate it..

Than you.

I'm not sure if this is the cause but a few days after windows update my firefox crashes. I restart it and only screen opens and doesn't respond. Deleted Firefox, did fresh install. Firefox starts again but as soon as I log in my account, crashes again. Delete firefox and again fresh install. I don't login, I save 3 bookmarks and it crashes again. Delete firefox again and fresh install. But now firefox starts in the background (seen in task manager) but does not open a window. Download latest installer and try to install but now install says, "something went wrong" during the download. (could be the enterprise network here) this I tried a few times but no success.

So I download Firefox 101.0.1 ISO and install. But again running in background and no window.

Firefox has stopped saving the position of its window, looking to me like it is leaving space for my Windows taskbar but which is hidden.

Some online searching and I found that setting privacy.resistFingerprinting to false resolves the issue, but it is not a change I feel comfortable with and wonder if there is another solution. I have uBlock Origin installed so maybe I shouldn't be concerned.

Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

Libreoffice is the default system application for opening these files.

I first thought this issue was contained to a single website and was the fault of their IT, but I have begun to experience this issue on other websites, and it does not occur on other devices also using Firefox. It is difficult to explain given that I don't have any idea what is actually happening, but hopefully I can make it clear enough.

For some websites that require a username and password, I will correctly login and pass authentication but then I will be booted back to the initial login screen, almost like the login failed. I only know that it is technically a log out, not a failure, because I have briefly seen the URL change like I'm logging out. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox fresh multiple times on my Windows 11 laptop, but the same issue occurs consistently.

This happened when I was trying to login to the student portal for my university and when I was trying to login to my apartment's resident portal. Changing cookie settings or going into a private browser has not helped at all. I cannot tell if this is a bug with Firefox (maybe just on Windows 11?) or if there is some background setting that needs to be adjusted, but it is very frustrating. If this keeps happening, I would have to switch to a different browser, which would not be ideal.

Does anyone have any idea of steps that I could take for troubleshooting or any experience with similar issues? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!
