I've tried everything to fix poor picture quality when streaming "third party" videos, e.g., YouTube. Colors are washed out; weird contrast; everything looks like it's coming through a haze. Streams from Netflix, Amazon look normal. And sorry, guys, the same third party streams from YouTube et al. look totally normal in the MS Outlook browser. Have tried all kinds of settings and rebooted as well. No change.

Please advise. This problem appears to be unique to Firefox.

I am writing to you because the subject is driving me crazy and I don't know what to do anymore.

TL;DR; version?

The same laptop, with the same firefox (113.0.1 snap) at work works fine... and at home it has an exhasperating lag.

Any ideas?

It happens to me with all the computers at home (with ubuntu, linux mint...) but (and here comes what kills me) if I browse with Chromium, everything flies.

I've tried by wifi against an access point that acts as a repeater, direct against the router and wired to the router and the result is always the same: Firefox slow as the bad guy's horse... and Chrome light as a cloud.

I have disabled all plugins, browsed in anonymous mode, reset firefox... and no way... every time it loads a page it takes 5 to 20 seconds of blank page.

I am a firefox user since its tender beginnings, but this lag is going to give me an ulcer and I am militant, but health comes first.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a Firefox account and I want to recover my bookmarks and passwords. My Windows 10 PC didn't boot up so I had to do a factory reset. After the reset, I logged into Firefox and tried using the Import and Backup tool. There was only one recovery date so I chose that. I clicked on the date and was prompted "This will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure?" I click OK and nothing happens. I didn't see my bookmarks and rebooted my computer.

It sounds like this might be two different issues: Bookmarks and Passwords.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Just recently, in the past day or so, when I do a search in the search box, all the results get redirected to Bing instead of Google, that I have in my settings as default. I have checked my settings, I even removed Bing from the list, and I still only get Bing results. Even when I go to Google and use their search box on their domain, I get Bing results. I did a virus scan without finding any problems. I'm stumped and don't understand why this happened and nothing I do can detect uncovers why this is happening.

Really irritating when I have to spend my time fixing stuff that is lurking in cyberspace!

I've asked this question a long time ago, and received no answers. I resorted to resetting it every time, however a new problem has come about, forcing me to ask again.

Whenever I open my browser, my tabs have reset themselves to default width. I prefer them at a wider width, so I navigate to about:config and edit the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth to 100. I have to do this every time.

However, for some reason doing this now also hides/removes tab close buttons on each tab, which is problematic to my style of browsing.

I had an userCSS file, but even after removing it as a test, the problem persists. If it matters, my style of browsing has me keep two windows open at any given time. I did try to change it with only one window open, but the change did not stick.

Only tab-specific add-ons I have are FoxyTab and a tab suspender.

Any help is appreciated, be it making sure the tab close buttons do not disappear, or be it making sure the tabs remain at minimum of 100 width.

I assume that Mozilla does not have a ARM version or is this a configuration issue? Or is there a different issue at play here?

For the past few weeks, Firefox has started crashing when logging into various websites. I've updated Firefox, cleared cookies etc, reinstalled Firefox, opened it in Troubleshooting mode, updated my OS, disabled extensions... everything I can think of. After some sleuthing, it seems to only happen when trying to log into a website. Doesn't happen on every site, which is weird.

This is so frustrating, please help!

So my FF interface language is German but I do write a lot off stuff in English so I installed a bilingual dictionary. I have no clue how to enable it though. In "languages" the default German language is enabled. In "dictionaries" my new dict is enabled. When I right click underlined text in English it offers me either German OR English but not the bilingual dictionary. When I click "add dictionary" I get to the page where I found that bilingual dictionary in the first place. This is very confusing behavior.

I have seen multiple copies of this question, some unanswered, some with the same "answer". All the questions are closed so I cannot reply to them. The "answer" does not work.

I have the "Show tabs from other devices" sidebar. I also can access from "Open application menu" > email address > list of synced tabs. Both methods show me the device name and all of my synced tabs. Neither method has an "open all tabs" option. If I right click my device name nothing happens. If I right click a tab, it opens that one tab. I don't know how many tabs I have on my Android. I have enough tabs that it only shows the infinity symbol instead of the number. It has shown the infinity symbol for a long time and I've opened many more tabs since. It could be hundreds or even thousands of tabs. I have 224 tabs on my laptop. I want to open all 224 laptop tabs plus all however many Android tabs on my laptop at the same time. I'm aware this will cause significant lag on my laptop. I'm not looking for a solution for that or people telling me not to do that. I want to know how to open all of my synced tabs at once on my laptop, without having to click through one by one.

Last Tuesday, Win 11 AND Firefox both updated on the same day, Firefox to 113.0.1. Ever since, my Firefox has experienced SIGNIFICANT lag time loading even the most basic of websites. It feels like Netscape 1.0 slow (yes, I'm that old). I've disabled 2/3ds of my addons to see if that would help and it hasn't. I don't know if it's an issue with the Win 11 update (KB5026372), with Firefox or some combination of both, but any help in addressing this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Firefox automatically updated and now tabs sync, which I absolutely hate and want to implode the Earth because this even exists. I go to the options to turn off the stupid pointless sync and oh wait it doesn't turn off. The box is not checked. Tabs still sync and display a worthless icon on my taskbar because apparently Mozilla thinks I'm such an idiot I need AN EXTRA FRICKING ICON to tell me I have open tabs in my browser.

So how do I actually turn this trashbag "feature" off if it's not by deselecting it in the "Sync" panel, since that doesn't work?
