duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?

Hi! I have the strictest anti-tracking protection enabled and have one question: Firefox prevents cross-site cookies by default, but if I install Firefox Containers, does that mean that those cross-site cookies will be allowed inside that container, even if they're not when browsing outside of any container? My concern is that, if that happened, using Firefox containers would actually diminish privacy instead of increasing it (for example, Facebook would be able to use Instagram cookies because they're in the same container, even though it wouldn't if I hadn't installed Containers). Thanks a lot! Love the Firefox community <3

Been having an issue with Firefox, where the "A" Key on the keyboard acts as a left click action

I have tried resetting and reinstalling firefox multiple times but it doesnt fix my problem I didnt have the issue before, and I've tested all other browsers and on other apps my desktop and i cant replicate the same issue

I've tried using different keyboards, but it doesnt fix it

This gets pretty annoying as if i leave my mouse on the google icon during a search and type anything involving the letter "a" it clicks on the google icon and sends me back to step 1

I love using firefox, and would love to keep using it, hence why I am regardless of the issue, though life would be much easier with out it xD

Any help appreciated <3

Dear Supporter,

I got a notification from a website that FireFox is not up to date. On closer examination, this is indeed the case. Updates were supposed to be done automatically.

I changed Ubuntu's update server to main server; this had no effect.

In settings preferences under updates I see: FireFox Updates Keep FireFox up to date for the best performance, stability and security. Version 88.0 (64bit) Whats new Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

There is no option to check or disable for automatic updates. As far as I can remember, update to this version was automatically.

In settings help under About Firefox nothing appears about updates.

Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS notification: system-up-to-date I assume that should be allright?…

Thunderbird is 68.10.0 That seems ok...

Thank you very much

If you visit a website with malicious javascript in Firefox (ver. 93), is it possible for the site to access passwords stored in the browser, or typed or stored in Mozilla Thunderbird? (I would assume that would be considered a vulnerability and if it is possible it would be patched immediately, but I also figured that it is better to ask than to "assume.")

In the current version of Firefox, if (which is very rare) I go and open more than 17 tabs, some go off the one end of the top of the screen, and I must scroll over to find them. If I remember, on a very old version it was either 15 or 11 tabs before that happened.

Is there a way for me to change the 'limit number of tabs before they go off the end'? I would rather like to do that, but I have not found how. I would be most grateful if you can help.

Thanks,

Peter

Recent updates on firefox (firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) seems to have issues with pictures in this webpage webpage :

System Host: Kubuntu 20.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-38-generic

I tried a virtual machine (gnome boxes) with pop os. Firefox works fine with no updates, but after updating to (Firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) it shows the same issue on this page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box

Guest: POP OS 21.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-7620-generic

I also tried on Boxes-Manjaro (Firefox 91.0-1) and works fine, then I updated it to 93.0-1 and have issues as well on the page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box.

Guest: Manjaro KDE 21.1.0 Kernel: 5.13.11-1-MANJARO

On all of this OS, pressing left click on the image solves the problem temporarily, scrolling down or up makes the blinking appear again

My final thoughts are the KDE docs page uses a lot of fancy links which probably is not standard for a general web page which leads on unexpected issues on newer version of Firefox, a workaround would be installing deb packages of Firefox 91 because is stable and trusty and installing new one if needed, a caveat would be updating manually. In any case I would like to know what else would causing

I looked at various tips on how to solve a RAM problem. But I don't understand why my firefox takes about 800MB of RAM after startup, but sometimes after the time of use it suddenly takes 16GB of RAM. Does Mozilla not have a tool to track which part of Firefox uses so much RAM?

Hey!

As the subject implies, my Firefox Application and associated applications on Windows 10 don't open at all. When I click on the shortcut, or open it directly through file explorer as administrator, for a single moment it shows a blank window with a blank application on the taskbar open and immediately closes it. It does not bring up a crash report following this. I have tried everything from restarting my PC, to removing every Firefox file on my PC and reinstalling Firefox, to trying Safe Mode, updating Windows 10 and drivers, and virus scans. Nothing has worked.

Is there any form of fix for this? It would be well appreciated!
