I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.

Firefox lags whole computer when playing <video> elements

Whenever I view a video on for example https://old.reddit.com/r/nextfuckinglevel/comments/zg3lhv/the_coldest_temperature_ever_achieved_38/ or https://www.dr.dk/drtv/se/julehjertets-hemmelighed_-hvem-er-tyven_352532 my computer starts to lag, not just the video, my cursor skips around when moved.

This is on latest Nightly 109.0a1, but started after I switched from a AMD RX 570 4GB => AMD RX 6600 XT 8GB, never had the problem with the old vega based GPU.

What I have tried

  1. If I disable hardware acceleration the lag stops.
  2. If I start the browser in safe mode, the lag stops
  3. Playing it in Firefox 1.0.7.1 with HW accelration, no lag!
  4. Disabling all extensions, do not stop lag

If I look in task manager, there is nothing to report, no excessive cpu or memery usage

I use Yahoo mail within Firefox. Just recently it has changed so that if I select the download option, to download any attachment to an email, it will either open (if say a PDF) or ask me where I want to save the attachment, but then the tab the Yahoo mail is open in will close once the attachment has opened/saved. Before, I could download/open/save or whatever and the Yahoo mail tab would remain open (as I would expect it to).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

When attempting to connect to https://FIDELITY.COM it continues at "performing a TLS handshake to CFA fidelity.com , but won't connect .

Never had this issue. All my other bookmarks work fine.

Fidelity tech support could not identify a problem on their end. Have had clients experience same problem.

Suggested I try Microsoft Edge browser , which works.

Would prefer to connect with Firefox.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello, for some reason firefox and all firefox related browsers have developed a problem on my system. All videos and streams stop playing if the window/tab loses focus. This is not the first time this has happened but earlier this year using the about:config flag I will mention below the problem seemed to be fixed but now it is back and worse than ever. I have a symmetrical gigabit connection and the problem only occurs in firefox and it's related browsers, no other aspect of my internet is affected, just video/streams and only in these kinds of browsers.

I do have a bunch of extensions but all are ones I have had for a long time, years in most cases, they were not the cause of the problem before and starting in troubleshoot mode plus a fresh profile in a fresh instal confirmed they are not to blame now either.

To be precise about the issue, when I say the videos stop that is exactly what I mean, there are no lags, no buffering, no partially loaded video bar( where applicable), no tab crashes, no connection problems, no warnings about certain tabs or extensions slowing things down, nothing at all, the video simply stops.

I have tried

- safe/troubleshooting mode to rule out any extensions
- with and without my vpn running
- doing fresh installs of the browsers/ complete fresh slate, revo uninstaller pro ran and using fresh profiles 
- found some suggestions for the about:config page, namely window_occlusion_tracking
- found some contradicting information about hardware acceleration but I tried both with and without and it makes no difference
- experimenting with different versions of firefox, so if you can see which version I am using as I post this, the reason it is not the latest version is because I have tried rolling back through older releases to find one that works, but have yet to suceed,

But no matter what I have tried I cannot get the problem sorted. Either I have that specific window and tab as the sole active window on my device or I need to click into it and either reload the tab or push the play button multiple times before playback resumes.

Open to ideas because i'd rather not have to resort to chrome, thanks

I hate being forced to restart my firefox following an update that I didn't ask for. It's particularly annoying when I'm on a video-conference and I start a search and I'm forced to come back to the conference, wait for them to accept me again, etc...

At a minimum, an option should be offered to disable the restart (I didn't find any).

Thank

I want all downloads and files to save to a specific folder on an external hard drive. It used to go there. But now, even when I change the location in "settings" and "about:config", when I save it goes to "Documents". Right now, but say it's set to my desired location, but when I do a "save as" it goes right to "Documents", as if "settings" isn't even there.

How to I get the save location to stay where I want it to be every time?

I recently switched from Chrome which had the Reading List feature which you could view on the Chrome Android app as well as Chrome PC.

I recently figured out Firefox has a similar thing called Collections but I can't find out where it's located on the Firefox PC application.

Or do I have to do something to sync it with my PC?

Lately, "Sign in with Google" popups have been occurring on MANY websites including sites like Overstock, Ebay, and others. I hate google and in no way would I EVER give them my logins and passwords. So why is firefox throwing that popup on my websites? How do I block it? Have you gone over to the dark side and are you now using the Chromium browser????
