Unchecking a certain option in firefox breaks downloading for certain homepages:

=======================================================

Did a little research. This problem has appeared with rel/ver 79. The problem shows up as soon as the check mark is removed in the options. Which check mark? Well:

TOOLS

   OPTIONS
      GENERAL
          TABS
               uncheck the box "open links in tabs instead of new windows" 

Use the instructions below. Took me quite a while to find what/where the problem is.

The following is just an example - you can try downloading any firmware for any other ASUS product! If you are interested - just try the following sequence of "commands":

Go to the homepage of "ASUS.COM" Position on the "service" option. Click on the "service and support" option in the drop-down menu. Select the pic showing i.e. a router (wlan and networks). Select "wireless router" as the product range (first box). Then select i.e. "RT-AC66U" as product model (second box). Then select "Drivers & Tools". Then select "BIOS and FIRMWARE". AND then try downloading.

This is where MY browser starting with rel 79 just blinks and inserts a little notice which reads i.e. "2020/09/29 downloaded" and a little circle with an arrow in it pointing downwards.

But nothing is downloaded.

Putting a check in the above mentioned box makes the download work.

===============================================================

HOPE A DEVELOPER READS THIS.

Either ASUS is doing something strange or firefox as of rel 79 has changed its behavior.

To repeat myself: I can download on other sites (like drivers for NVIDIA GPUs) just fine. So far, it just seems to be a problem on the ASUS homepage.

ASUS is telling me that this is a Firefox problem.

Have a nice day.

My youtube notifications cannot load- continuously loading without any success. Same thing happening with opening transcript, and I also cannot load settings from my user's thumbnail. So basically, nothing is loading. I don't have that problem from any other browser using the same account. tried to empty my cache, didn't help. any idea on how I could fix this without reinstalling mozilla? thanks

Hello, I have the problem that when filling out "email" in a form on a website everytime I write the @-sign everything written in front of it get's deleted. I found out that when I press the "Alt-Gr"-key the word I wrote get's marked and of course then the @ deletes the marked word. How can I keep "Alt-Gr" from marking the active word? :-) Also the same word marking happens when pressing the "Alt"-key. The same happens in Thunderbird when trying to write a new email. I'm working with Ubuntu, but I doubt it has to do with Ubuntu, because when filling out a form in Opera it works just fine. Any help appreciated! Cheers! Formicula

Hello,

J'aime utiliser Firefox pour le développement de mes sites internet. Mais un point m'exaspère et me fait perdre beaucoup de temps. Je m'explique.

Lorsque j'apporte des modifications CSS, parfois ceux-ci ne s'actualisent pas lorsque je refresh la page. Il me faut régulièrement aller vider le cache. Et même parfois cela ne suffit pas et je dois systématiquement continuer à travailler sur chrome car je ne trouve pas la solution pour refresh mes modifs sur firefox. Volontiers un petit tips qui pourrait résoudre mon problème.. ? Merci et bonne journée.

Persistent performance problems starting ~6 weeks ago

Hey there, I and my colleagues who use Linux have all started seeing massive performance decrease & tabs frequently reporting "a web page is slowing down your browser" issues starting around August 5 or 6 of this year. I started a complaint thread in my company slack about this on August 6, and unrelated to that, someone else started a similar thread on august 18.

At first I thought it was just me, or just some quirk of my linux distribution, or a pattern of using the software. But I actually switched Linux distros from Ubuntu to Arch to see if it would help (it didn't) and now that I've seen the behavior consistently across a whole bunch of different apps, I think it's a bug. It seems to affect heavier webapps like Quip and Slack, much more so than lighter webpages. Again, nothing was wrong before August of this year and now, depending on how I use my computer, I frequently get "a web page is slowing down your browser", cpus pegged to 100%, which ends up with me closing tabs/ sometimes restarting firefox multiple times per day.

Nobody on Chrome is complaining about similar issues.

I did run the profiler for a bit while such an issue was going on, and am happy to share it, although it has slightly-private information from one of our company slacks and I don't know if this forum is public.

Every time I close my firefox web browser I get logged out of sites I have set to stay logged in to. It just started to happen this past week. I have not had this problem before. I Have not made any changes to my web browser settings. The only thing I might have done is updated the browser with the latest update. I have all the correct settings checked or unchecked based on other questions people have asked.

I am using Firefox 81.0 on Windows 10, www.google.ca is my set home page. When I open firefox, which takes me to www.google.ca, I start typing, the cursor jumps to the address bar. It used to automatically select all and replace the text in the address bar with what I am typing. Now when the cursor jumps to the address bar, it is positioned at the beginning and adds to the address bar.

If I start typing "my search request", it used to search google "my search request". No it wants to search "my search requesthttps://www.google.ca".

How do I get firefox to replace the address bar when I start typing?

Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!

Hello Everyone, I now have TWO computers that automatically updated Firefox ESR from 68.12.0 to 78.3.0. I now cannot logon to a Networkwork Solutions webmail account that I have used for years. The message says to change my settings to allow cookies. Thinking that the update may have changed a security cookie setting, I have tried multiple configurations. The standard Firefox settings have worked fine for years until the update. So far I can still access the account with both Opera and Brave, I have not yet tried Chrome. What has changed? Thanks.

Background: Whenever I open YouTube, I want it in a dedicated container. Initially, I opened it in my Personal Container, and assigned YouTube.com to open in it. However, I'm stuck in a loop with YouTube being assigned to my Personal Container now.

What's Wrong After that initial assignment to my Personal Container, I later realized that I could create a dedicated container for YouTube, so I created a YouTube Container.

To switch YouTube to open in my dedicated YouTube container, I browsed to www.youtube.com, right clicked the tab, and re-open in Container - selected YouTube. It prompted me to confirm, I clicked the "remember my decision" checkbox and the open in YouTube Container. YouTube successfully opens in my YouTube container.

However, it never remembers my decision - it always prompts me to confirm the current container (which may be no container at all) or the Personal Container. In fact when*ever* I click a YouTube link, it asks me to confirm.

It feels like YouTube is "stuck" in the personal container, and I can't get it out of this loop.

I've tried to look for docs, but I haven't found any that address my issue. Also, isn't there a way to edit assignments manually using a listing of sites and the containers they're assigned?

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!! - David
