I am on Windows 10 and have not had trouble booting up Firefox to my home page, Dogpile, until the past few days. Every time I load Firefox, I get the captcha Are You a Robot? It is happening every time over the past few days. What is causing this? How can I get directly to my home website? Thank you very much for your help!

So Firefox shows site status indications in the lower left corner. I don't know the technical term, since it's not just the one site I've allowed to send notifications. On some pages, these contrast with the background. So these flash as the page loads, and they can flash again if the page tries to load something new every 30 seconds. I am photosensitive and flashing can hurt and I want to either block this or find some way to reduce the contrast, such as showing this in a continuous bottom panel.

Is there any way to block this? And what are they supposed to be called?

Hi, I've been having this issue for a few months now, and it can get really annoying. Like the title says, the right side of Firefox is cut off a little for me, both in fullscreen and windowed fullscreen. This problem occurs on all websites, and is only fixed when I restart in safe mode, though I don't think any extensions that I have could be causing this problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I have a website that wont render correctly. It will not render most of the css on the firefox installation on my main computer. I have tried loading that website on multiple computers with the same version of firefox (signed into the same firefox account) and they all work. The website also works fine on Microsoft edge installed on my main computer.

The weird thing is, if I try to load that exact same website when it is downloaded to my computer, (from my hard drive) it works fine and looks perfect (same browser, exact same code).

I have tried to clear my data, and disable all extensions and plugins and that did not work.

Does anyone have any suggestions of ideas I can try before I reinstall the browser on my computer?

I am running Windows 10, Firefox x64 version 81

Hi, I'm using both Linux and Windows on my computer. I've got problem with firefox sync, on Windows I'm using program like IDM and also use it's extension on Firefox. Meanwhile, on Linux this extension is useless. If I turned it off while on Linux, when I relogin to Windows, this extension also get turned off, I understand this is due to Firefox sync nature, but its so ineffective if I've got to turn it on and off while switching between OS.

Is there any workaround for this?

TIA

I went to "Show All Bookmarks" and searched for a bookmark. I want to know what folder I put the bookmark in. I can't figure out how to do so.

Someone answered this question before:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274811

"You can open this bookmark in a tab, possible in "Work Offline mode". If you click the highlighted star on the location bar then you can check via the Folder line where in the folder tree this bookmark is located (second down arrow and use the scroll bar)."

How do I get into "Work Offline mode"? Also, why is this so difficult?

I've been using Firefox on all my computers for a long time (Windows 10,) great browser.

However, starting today, specifically on my laptop, it's painfully slow (60 seconds to load Google) and very high CPU usage (over 20%.) It regularly stops responding to mouse and keyboard input. I have to kill it with Task Manager. Everything else on the laptop seems fine. I haven't made any changes I'm aware of that could cause this.

As an example, it took over 2 minutes to load this particular page, then at least another 90 seconds before I could type anything into it. My network connection is fine. IE and Edge work OK.

I've tried a Firefox refresh, no change.

An uninstall and reinstall, no change. I've tried a reinstall with also deleting all the appdata folders (so a clean install, no extensions,) no luck.

I've tried disabling antivirus (Symantec, always suspect) no change.

Unless there's something I can remove in the registry I'm at a loss.

I'm really hoping I don't need to switch to Chrome, or God forbid, Edge.
