As I use Firefox throughout the day, webpages will just stop for a bit. Sometimes its only a few seconds, other times for a few minutes. It is most noticeable when playing videos but does happen at other times as well. During the halt, I can still access Firefox's settings and all menu items. It is just website interactions that stop.
For example, when a halt occurs on youtube, the video will eventually stop, depending on the buffer, and scrolling through the comments won't pull up any more and replies won't load. Then after a few moments, everything will start working again without issue, and all the uncompleted actions (such as opening new replies or trying to go to another page) will execute.
I used to think it was related to my computer's connection to our company's access server, but refreshing my connection through a CMD ipconfig /renewall worked so rarely that I assume it was just coincidental timing.
I also tried turning off hardware acceleration, but that had no positive effect. I'll make a separate post about that issue.
The thing that fixes it every time is odd: launching Chrome. I wanted to make sure it was just Firefox, so I tried launching Chrome, and then Firefox started working immediately. (Spotify still plays when Firefox halts too)
Is there anything I can adjust to keep this halting from happening? I can manage right now, but it is sort of annoying to launch Chrome every time.

to archieve some good old games, I use an special version of Firefox. Firefox (MyPal): 29.2.0, with Adobe Flash preinstalled, Disk-Cache
For most games it will suffice: After loading all content online, it will be available offline too. But... some audio/video files will be saved in memory cache - %temp%\mozilla-temp-files\*[random-auffix] - instead of in disk cache. After closing session they get deleted and after restart they are saved again, with another suffix.
Sample file: http://arcaneonlinegame.epizy.com/Arcane/frames_files/midi/Ophelia's Journal.mp3 that is shipped with http://arcaneonlinegame.epizy.com/Arcane/Arcane.htm
How can I tell Firefox to permanent save streamed audio/video files, like Firefox does with everything else? In the end the music should play if I open the browser offline too.
Thank you in advance for your help. Drago

I use two monitors, and I have multiple firefox windows open at once. When I turn on my pc and open firefox, the windows almost randomly position themselves on both monitors, sometimes they are not maximised either. How can I change this behavior so that all my firefox windows open, maximised, on one monitor rather than both?

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible
on debian 12 linux
I tried `firefox` `firefox-esr` `thunderbird``firefox -P`. I also deleted `~/.mozilla`, `firefox -p presaved-profile-dir` stay the same.
the `firefox binary` and the `profile dir` are all useful because I saved them to zip file and use them every day. So is there any other dir besides the 2 dir which fails the startup? even thunderbird fail with the same reason.
Help please, thanks!

I'm trying to restore Firefox Bookmarks and stored login/passwords from a Time Machine backup of my Macbook Pro. I've read in the Mozilla support articles where this info is stored, but my backups have no Firefox folder under "Applications Support."

Since 117(Beta)I have an issue with Firefox refusing to apply the update it downloaded. I've tried searching left and right on the internet for a solution and one does work which is installing the newer version of the browser each time myself. But this is ofcourse not a solution in the long run.
It tries now to apply the update 118b9 to stable version 118 and it did downloaded just fine and asked me if I wanted to close the program to let it update which always worked. I've tried different DNS to see if that could be the problem, tried a clean default profile to see if that helped, I haven't tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, due to me losing my passwords and what not.
I also tried to run the stable version to see if the issue was still there and it is still there, so me using the beta channel isn't the issue here.

I have noticed few problems using history with Back and Forward Button.
Firstly whenver we use back button my website to the hiistorical visited website in that same tab. However i have noticed that it keeps forgetting the count or number of historical sites visited in the same tab.
For Eg: if i navigate to several pages on the same site. Firefox will only remember few clicks upto 2-3 back.
Surprisingly when i click back button i am not able to come back to the last visited page by clicking forward button. Once i click back button then i wont be able to come to forward sites as the forward pages are fully lost.

The verification code usually swipes to the right after input, but cannot be moved at all! 3. Video acceleration issues. On video websites, it used to be possible to right-click to indicate video fast forward, but now there is no response after operation

Hi, folks. I may (or may not) need some help here to quell my confusion. You decide... If we accept the result of a google search for the definition of "word(s) grammatical meaning" (which is stated as "the meaning conveyed in a sentence by word order and other grammatical signals"), then I'd like to offer a suggestion for the grammatical rendering(s) of word(s) as viewed in some of the instructions I've found on Mozilla web pages that would really help me to better understand what the instructions impart.
I hope you folks will see that I am not being "nit picky" NOR being disparaging towards a person or their use of words, phrases, syntax, etc. in relation to their presentation(s) of examples, solutions, intructions, etc. It has been & continues to be a challenge for me to understand/comprehend what I read sometimes, due to some limitations I have (still, at age 75 even) which are akin to being dyslexic & having attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). If one does a google search for these maladies, it can be found that potentially millions of people are afflicted. Depending on the web page visited, one can find varying percentages of the total populations of various geographical locations for these disabilities, which tends to support the notion that we number in the millions. So, there may be others who might benefit from the suggestion(s) offered here. If you will accept the notion that I really do appreciate the time & research folks avail themselves to (and then present via the Firefox venue) aimed at the edification of those who would benefit from their selfless actions, then please consider the following, non-dissing, presentation edits...
OK, if my premise (as stated directly above) is within the scope of Firefox verbal etiquette, then I'd like to share some requested changes to descriptions, actions, instructions, etc., that would make it easier & be less time consuming for me (and mayhaps quite a few others) to read & understand (at least) some of the articles presented on Firefox web pages.
As I paged back thru the web sites to find the web page I had visited that gave rise to my concern about understanding what I was reading, it surprised me that it took 10 clicks on web page links to do so. I bookmarked the link to the web page which had the text fill-in box I am currently using, hoping I could avoid my original 10 webpages of links, journey.
OK, here I am on a Moxilla Supprt web page "Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles" with the URL: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles PAGING down to the "Restoring a profile backup" (under the Table of Contents), I can find no reference to the location of the action described in item 1. Click the Firefox menu Button and select Exit. Where do I need to be in the Firefox app. to execute this action? After performing the action described in item 1., am I directed to the Explorer? OR, do I need to open the Explorer? OR open a cmd line prompt? in order to be able to view the two directories referenced?
For the action described in item 2., referencing "existing profile folder" and "profile backup folder", why is "profile" not the middle word in each of these three word combos? AND, if I execute the action referenced in this item, am I replacing the "existing profile folder" with the "profile backup" file (located inside the "profile backup folder "?) AND, are there any other files in the "profile backup folder" along with the "profile backup" file?
Also, is this action performed from the Explorer? or a CMD line prompt? AND, if I overwrite my existing profile with my backup profile, then I will lose all data from the existing profile that is not represented in the backup profile. That could be sizeable depending on the amount time elapsed from date when the backup profile was saved to the date the current profile is still in use.
I am further confused by the word usage in the "Important" comment: The "profile folder names" (ostensibly referencing "existing profile folder" and "profile backup folder") must match exactly. Yet the descriptions of these folders do not use the same naming format.
PAGING further down this web page to the next item in the Table of Contents, I find "Restoring to a different location". Is the action in item 1., in this section, the same as the action in item 1., of the section directly above it, "Restoring a profile backup"?
It appears as tho items 3., 4., 5., & 7., in this section, use three different phrases to describe the same entitiy (and/or its location?) i.e., the "backed-up profile folder", the "profile folder backup", & the "backed up profile folder". Are the "backed-up profile folder" referenced in item 3., the "profile folder backup" referenced in item 4., & the "backed up profile folder" all folders (directories & sub-directories)? The naming convention here is uber confusing....
AND now, so am I (confused). BUT, if I am the only one, then please ignore my ramblings above. I will take no more of your valuable time. NOR, will I need a response. With some "trial & error" scenarios (and the time to execute them), I am sure I can figure this out.
Uno, a thot does occur to me. Am I even in the right venue here to find out how to save/backup my emails stored with my online email provider? After re-reading the Firefox online support for backing up Firefox profiles, I did not come across any nomenclature identifying any emails. I mean afterall, that is what I'd like to do & reduce my burgeoning signature (footprint?) of thousands of stored online emails... SO, are emails stored in the "backed-up profile folder"? AND if so, are they one of the files in this folder? OR, are they a part of the "backed-up profile" file? (I mean if there is such a file...)
P.S... Here's a comforting tid bit of info. By cutting & pasting the URL (that I saved & briefly texted about earler) which opens the web page with this text fill-in box, I circumvented needing to select 10 different links to get here...

Every time I switch in to my browser, it reduces my entire max volume on my laptop to only 31-I'm not sure why, as I've followed all other suggestions-disabling all addons, disabling all enhancements in sounds tab, ensuring it's on the 'do nothing' option, trying to manually turn it up when on the browser-but every time i click into it it resets my entire volume down to 31, and only restores it once i click out of the browser. It's getting ridiculous by this point and I'm frustrated, it's not doing this in other browsers so I don't know why firefox is doing this, and why it's going specifically for 31, but it makes listening to videos and music extremely hard. I've attached the shared data via the button if it helps, I just really wish it would stop resetting my volume to barely audible for me whenever i try to check something.

A few days ago links in messages stopped working in Outlook (Microsoft 365) on my Windows 10 Pro 64-bit PC.
Good ol' Microsoft support reset Firefox on the PC and I lost all bookmarks, history and personalized settings. Tried to copy data from Old Firefox Data file into profile on reset Firefox. Didn't work. Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and tried to copy data from old profile to new profile. Nada.
Only option now is to try to sync Firefox on my Mac to new install on PC. I'll still lose some bookmarks and history but it will be better than what I have now. I have a Firefox account on both devices but when I log in to Firefox on the Mac I cannot find anything pertaining to sync.
Problem one: how do I navigate to sync in Firefox for Mac. Problem two: when I bought the Mac 6 years ago I tried to sync Firefox on my PC to the new Mac. For some reason Firefox synced the empty new profile on the Mac to the old PC. I lost all bookmarks and history accumulated on the old PC! I do not want to go through that again.
I have never found anything on Mozilla that clearly explains how to control which way the sync works. Must be certain that I'm copying all the bookmarks, history, tabs etc, from the old device to the new on and not vice versa.
