Hello all. I am looking for a way to prevent the width of tabs from resizing when either adding or subtracting tabs from the tab bar. The only reference I can find to this issue is a 2014 post found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/989387. The suggestions therein do not apply to the current FF version. Among other things, the suggestion to go to the setting "browser.tabs.animate" does not seem to apply to the current FF version since I can not find such a setting. Like the OP in the 2014 post, the auto tab resizing drives me nuts! (Maybe he/she and I are the only people in the whole FF world community who are bothered by this?!) I would much prefer the tab width to stay the same and use the arrows on each side of the tab bar to access tabs that do not fit across the screen when many tabs are open. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am using FF 128.0 with Win 10 22H2 build 19045.4651. Thanks for any suggestions. John H

Ever since the version 127.0.2 update, YouTube has not loaded a video for more the 10 seconds. The rest of the page loads fine but the video just continues to buffering. Starting today it loads the video at the lowest resolution and plays for maybe 10 seconds. This problem is only on Firefox and I have already tried every solution to this issue that I have found on the internet. This all started with the latest update and once I updated the browser on my PC this issue manifested.

Hi. In recent weeks, I have been having daily issues with pictures in messenger not showing when they are sent to me, though I can see the ones I send out.

I have done the usual running in troubleshooting mode etc, but it makes no difference.

I have added a screenshot of the issue below.

I use Firefox beta and the issue does not happen on other browsers such as edge.

Firefox must've updated because this worked fine yesterday(7/11/24) but now I get this error when I try to access Google's main page.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using antivirus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

I have a magazine e-subscription to Tricycle.org the problem is that, according to Tricycle Tech Support, my pop-up blocker keeps blocking my log-in attempts, and the Tricycle site keeps asking me to subscribe, and their Tech Support team says the probem is on my end and suggests that I disable my pop-up blocker. I'm wondering if mozilla/firefox will permit me to disable the blocker at tricycle.org without interfering with every other thing the blocker is doing? I have Mozilla VPN and Firefox on my Mac laptop. Thanks! -- Jim Dollar

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.foxnews.com.

If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

Firefox does NOT have ANY of the Microsoft Apps under FILES TYPES and DOWNLOAD Actions in Settings

I posted the other day under "Firefox NO LONGER adheres to "Ask if you want to Save" option.." - HOWEVER - I NOW see what the problem is - BUT I STILL can't fix it:

I have New Lenovo laptop - Windows 11 – AND - Firefox version 128.0 - and EVEN THOUGH I have ALL the items necessary checked under SETTINGS - APPLICATIONS to ALWAYS ASK - NOWHERE in this version of Firefox on my Win 11 laptop does it show ANY of the Microsoft products in the APPLICATIONS field - so I can't change how I want Firefox to respond when accessing Microsoft applications - AT ALL!

SO THAT means - EVERY TIME I click on a .doc or any Microsoft Office program - it automatically opens - and it is saved in a download folder.

You must understand – with what I do - I open AT LEAST 20- 30 docx a day - I DO NOT want to SAVE them - but I have no recourse - AND there is NO WAY to add – (that I know of) - the Microsoft applications to the FIREFOX Applications section under Settings.

AND if you send me to the Help section – to look at: Always Open Similar Files" option – AS YOU CAN SEE by the screengrab – There ARE no similar files for me to do that with - SO I can’t fix it that way either.

ALSO – I have another Laptop – Windows 10 – and of course Firefox latest version – 128.0 - and as you can see with the screengrab – It has options for AT LEAST TWO of the Microsoft Applications – so I don’t have that problem – BUT – to attach a screengrab from my Win 10 laptop application settings in Firefox to this msg – I went to my Win 10 laptop – made a grab – and sent it to myself to open on my Win 11 laptop – which is where I am composing this message and which has the problem – BUT BECAUSE there is ALSO no setting to ASK what to do when you open Picture files – It SAVED to downloads as well – NO OPTION to say that you JUST wanted to open it!

This is maddening and it really doesn’t work for me – and I assume others who may have this problem. Please PLEASE advise what I should do – Is there another build I can download or...?

Hi,

The Resy.com website has not been working on Firefox/Mac OS for over a month.

I thought it was a Resy issue but they replied:

"I thank you for your patience while team have been investigating this issue. Unfortunately, it would appear that Fire Fox is no longer supporting our platform. We do not have any more information as to why this is happening, but we do recommend using Chrome or Safari."

Is there a fix in the works?

Thanks, Tony

I have had issues where I am trying to open a new page or refresh a page and it stays at the bottom of the page. Example the Firefox help pages where I scroll to bottom click on the next page number, and it goes to that page but stays at bottom. Or if on Hibid and want to look at a listing, look at the listing and then want to go back to the previous page, it opens the listing at the bottom of the page, not the top. Sometimes it will open the new page where ever it wants
