I have the extension Simple Browsing Schedule installed on both an old Windows 10 PC and my new one running Windows 11. It works fine on the Windows 10 machine, but when I click the extension's icon on my Windows 10 machine, nothing happens. Clicking that is supposed to bring up a window where you can set a schedule for sites to open automatically.

Here’s what I’ve tried so far:

  • Disabled all other extensions to see if it was a conflict issue.
  • Uninstalled and re-installed Simple Browsing Schedule.
  • Tried a fresh Firefox profile, only installing Simple Browsing Schedule.

None of the above worked. My other extensions seem to be working normally, including the others that have their own windows that appear when I click their icons on the toolbar. Is there something about Windows 11 that could cause Firefox extension windows not to appear, or do you have any other ideas? Maybe it's something else about my new computer (graphics driver, maybe)?

I did check with the extension's creator first, who said this: "I am not aware of this problem with Windows 11. You have already tried the usual fixes, but they did not work for you. If I can find out any further suggestions I will let you know. It might be worth you posting this problem on the Mozilla Support forums as well – just in case they are aware of something unusual with Windows 11."

Thanks!

I just upgraded to a new computer, with Windows 11 and Firefox up-to-date. When playing albums on the Naxos Music Library, Firefox briefly stops playback at the end of every track before moving onto the next one. It's not just a pause, the play/pause button actually switches back-and-forth before each track. This is very annoying when the album is a continual piece of music and there's not supposed to be a pause there. I got in touch with the NML, but their best suggestion was to try a different browser. I did, and the issue is only occurring in Firefox. I've never come across this issue before, and it doesn't happen on my old (Windows 7) computer (also with up-to-date Firefox).

Hi guys, I did a fresh install of Firefox 98.0.2 yesterday. I saved my bookmarks.json file so I wouldn't need to configure anything. I had to turn Firefox sync off because I needed to remove some old extension and settings that I no longer needed and didn't want them on my new install.

I imported my bookmark json file but after I rebooted, all my folders are empty. The toolbar folders I had are empty too, the folders are there but empty.

It looks like all my bookmarks were placed under the "Bookmarks Menu" folder.

Does anyone know how to salvage this or am I doomed to manually sort hundreds of bookmarks?

Thank you.

It's not a huge deal but annoying none the less. And hard to explain. When I hover over the Firefox logo in my taskbar, all my open web pages are shown in miniature, which is great. The problem is, each of those small pages is shown at the top of the respective page rather than the position where I was working within them. In other words, I can't just pass my mouse over one of the miniatures and see the page displayed in the position where I was working; all I see is the top of that webpage. To get back to the spot where I had been working, I must actually click on the miniature and go back to that page. When I do, it opens correctly, exactly at the spot where I left it. But this means I have to click on each page to see where I was. So if I have 6 or 8 web pages open, and want to get a quick glance at any one of them, I have to hover then click on the page and go to it. I guess I got spoiled by the way Yahoo used to work; when I hovered over any of the miniatures, I was looking at the location on that page where I was working. I didn't have to actually click on the page to get a quick look. Hope this is making sense. Is there a setting I can adjust?

For some reason yesterday Firefox stopped opening PDF documents using Acrobat. I have checked the settings and Acrobat is set as the default application. I tried changing this to "always ask" it made no difference and forces saving the file.

I use Outlook on the web, when I copy the contents of an email, then copy the contents to a new message, and I start typing, when I type a "U" or sometimes another letter, the message goes away and Firefox brings up a new blank message.

Gentle-persons,

I noticed Firefox support does not mention System 11? [version 21H2(OS Build22000.556)] Is this a problem?

I am running Express VPN. Is DNS-over-HTTPS a partial duplication of the VPN function?

Since I am running a VPN, does it make any difference if DNS-etc. is enabled or disabled? Potential problems?

I have been running with default, DHS-etc. enabled, without any problem, as far as I know.

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, what is expected is seeing a notice of error, allowing me to refresh the page. However, sometimes the strange behaviours happen:

  • The refresh button is gray. I cannot refresh. I can only to re-type in my URL bar to force reload the page; or
  • The URL bar keeps blank or remains the former page. For example, I click the link on page A to page B, and page B is too slow, then I found that the URL keeps the URL of page A. I have to re-click the link of page B on page A; if I opens page B on a new page, then the URL keeps blank finally, and I have to re-click the link of page B as well.

The operation system is Windows 11. It also happens on Windows 10. It happens on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition. The issue does not exist in Edge browers (in Edge, it displays connection failure and allows me to refresh).

The issue has been existing for years.

Hello!

I was using this laptop for everything for a few years. Now I wanted to use this for work also. Previously all my bookmarks and logins were synced via a single email account. It was easy to use across all devices. Now since I want to use this for my work also, I decided to segregate my work stuff to a new windows account. So I created a new windows account. Obviously Firefox created a new profile and it was clean. No problems there.

So I wanted to use my original email for this new windows account and new firefox profile to sync across devices. So I created a new email, added it to my firefox account, made it the primary email then deleted my original email from that firefox account so that I can use it to sync firefox in my work user account.

But, Firefox is not allowing me to. There is no "signup" option for sync. Only "sign in". It continually asked me to sign in from my primary account, so I had to sign in from my primary account to make this post. Doesnt firefox offer 2 different "sync profiles" for the same device? Or Am I doing something wrong? Please help.
