I have tried to disable hardware acceleration, refresh firefox, reinstall, and nothing works. It hangs every single time when searching on google or connecting to websites. This really sucks because I have used firefox since the beginning and don't want to have to stop now..

I am going through the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers#w_manage-your-containers page and I dont have the option to add new containers when I click on the icon. I am only shown the choice to open the current page into one of the default containers. If I open a new empty tab, this icon doesnt show up in the url bar.

I have gone through the manage extensions options as well and I cant find a similar option. Can anybody point out what I am missing?

Greetings Firefox Support/CommunityL

While reconnecting one of my computers to my Firefox account I saw at the top of the Settings Page: "Your settings are being managed by your organization". Problem is that I don't belong to any organizations or enterprises having anything to do with my online life. I have been hacked in the past and am paranoid when I see something that doesn't make sense. When I click on the link (trusting that it is indeed from you), it takes me to your Enterprise Policy page showing the following:


Active Policy Name Policy Value

DNSOverHTTPS Enabled false Locked true

I always use secure DNS (DOH or DOT) on everything - network adapters, routers (except the ISP one whose default I can't figure out to circumvent) etc. but on the browser setting pages I am only given the option of having it off: the default, increased, and max protection options are greyed out and cannot be chosen. I guess that explains the policy values but who locked it? My only guess is that is use a Surfshark VPN and realize that in so doing I am using Surfshark's DNS servers but I believe I had this problem before using the VPN. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

After a recent change of my website's name registrar, Firefox (both on Linux and Android) has been running into issues finding the server/address. I suspect this has something to do with DNS, whether it be DNS over HTTPS (DoH) or otherwise.

Specifically, this seems to happen when DoH is on (as shown by about:preferences#privacy). I have confirmed that `curl --doh-url <cloudflare DNS query> <my website>` also fails to resolve the request.

This leaves me with a few outstanding questions:

  • Do I have any control of whether the DoH request fails? Is this something I can fix through my host or name registrar?
  • The TRR mode shown in about:preferences#privacy appears to be different than the one shown in about:config (2 versus 0, respectively).
  • Shouldn't Firefox be falling back to normal DNS? I have confirmed via `curl` that my website works fine over https.

Firefox and curl results for Linux confirmed on two machines on the same network.

On some webpage, I experience delay response when I trying to search sometime. For example, in Google homepage after typing something or even gibberish the page froze and not responding for about 10 second but the browser is still functioning (meaning I can still move other tabs or open option). Once that 10s delay is over, it responded with my result. And something when I when to search back something again(not in the homepage), more of the time is response back fast like 0.2s but other time the same 10s delay. This problem also happens in some other website but not all in their search bar. I have try in safe mode. disable all my extension, reinstall Mozilla Firefox, check any windows update and such. Also other browser does not have this problem such as chrome and brave. If this problem still persisting then I would such to other browser but prefer not to as I quite fond of Firefox. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi,

I was a former IT person for decades and used Firefox because I love it. But lately, it isn't usable for me. Seemingly happened out of nowhere within the past few weeks.

I tried all the troubleshooting steps in the guides on your support forum, but nothing worked. So I tried the following:

1. Uninstalled Firefox using Windows Uninstaller 2. Deleted every single Mozilla folder from within the user profile to the program files folders, local roaming folders, etc. - EVERYTHING. 3. Went into the Windows Registry and also deleted Mozilla folders within the local machine and current user folders. 4. Rebooted computer 5. Went to Getfirefox.com and reinstalled Firefox. 6. Logged into a brand spanking new Firefox installation

Still SLOW as molasses. Frustrating. I can't work. It is literally 4x slower than any other browser now. I use Firefox for 90% of my web stuff, the other browsers 10% of the time for testing. But as it goes now, I cannot use Firefox anymore after decades of using it.

Anything else I can try? Maybe I missed something when I scrubbed it and reinstalled? Why suddenly is it this slow? Any ideas?

I will try next to log into a different Windows profile I guess and see if that improves it. Maybe my Windows profile is jacked up, although, I thought removing all Mozilla folders from within my Windows profile would be enough, so I am not so sure that will fix it. I will try though.

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

I am Linux Mint Cinnamon user, When I type Korean in the Firefox Browser, type Korean word and type 'spacebar', blank is made before the last character.

Dear Firefox support,

I am writing to inquiry about bookmarks. I have hundreds of bookmarks, if not thousands with many folders, which I have saved over the last decade. I have always synced my account and it should all be there upon downloading a new firefox on my new computer. However, the HTML file that it is asking me to upload from is not a file I am able to find in by backups, time machine, or anywhere else. It is also not in my account after I sign in. I have spent nearly 10 hours trying to figure this out. I have read all your articles and went through the steps of about:profiles. ALL my bookmarks should have been synced and saved. I have firefox in my Time-machine backup also. But none of the library files populates the bookmarks.

It would be a huge harm to my research career if I am unable to restore my bookmarks. I have trusted and used Firefox for a long time. Please assist me in obtaining these bookmarks in my browser.

Best,
