When I use a video calling website, Firefox uses my camera. However, after I am done with the call and I close the video call tab, the camera is still in use by Firefox. The camera stops being used as soon as I close out the Firefox browser entirely.

I am currently using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Professional. The camera I am using is a Logitech C920 USB webcam.

Hello,

Some "Smooth Scroll" settings changed in FF 82, and my scrolling now is not as "smooth" as it used to be. (I still have FF 52 installed and it's much better).

I've modified "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS" and "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS" to 400 and 200 respectively (default in older versions), but the scrolling is still jumpy.

I've also tried playing with "mousewheel.acceleration.factor" and "mousewheel.acceleration.start" but it didn't help.

I'd appreciate any help.

Even though another application is selected under Options-Applications for "mailto", it still changes the mailto to FireFox in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\DefaultIcon.

This only happens when FireFox updates itself. It does not happen when FireFox starts.

So I have a dual monitor set up. It flickers on my main monitor whenever I do something that causes movement. For example hovering over tiles for youtube videos I can select, switching tabs, selecting the address bar, etc. But on my secondary monitor this issue doesn't exist (and I've tried to replicate it). I have tried the same actions and websites on google chrome on my main monitor to see if I can recreate it and narrow it down to a monitor problem however I couldn't get the flickering to occur once on chrome on my main monitor. If I place firefox in a neutral position (split between both monitors) and create the flickering it only flickers on the main one. This happens when the window isn't taking up the whole screen as well.

My main monitor is 1440p, 165 hz, gysnc, my secondary is 1080p 60hz. Any idea what the issue is?

My desktop computer has somehow lost all its settings. Not sure we properly backed everything up. If that is bad enough I cant make Mozilla Firefox my default browser. I click on the options setting (upper right) then make Firefox the default, then go to "Default Apps" under the computer main settings, Firefox does not show up as an option.

If this makes any difference I also have Microsoft Edge (new version) installed, and so Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome show up as options but not Mozilla. Additionally, every time I restart my computer I have to log back into Mozilla and have lost all my settings!

How do I make it so that Mozilla shows up as an option to choose as my default browser, and configure it so I dont have to log in each time and lose my settings?

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

i Totally agree with this now closed post: I just returned to Firefox due to high level hacker threats & identity theft basically I'm still battling,so I have to have all Social Media in Containers from now on & can't use other browsers w/o containers, so I get it all setup & had my sync on & the containers start acting up, so I see a suggestion to just simply refresh it, oh yea, that solves most problems, NO IT CAUSES MORE THAN IT SOLVES! Now my Lastpass pw mgr, can't get clipboard permission cause the page just comes up blank,when I try to copy/paste a pw, to sign into sync even, I had to past from outside using another browser & don't have containers on it, Brave should catch up to this, cause Chrome,clearly doesn't have containers, so I'm done using it & now w/o Firefox working right I'm screwed, it's so aggravating, Just when I thought firefox was doing good again, nope, you're back on my shitlist. I'm pissed just like this guy! I got my bookmarks & think I got the sync working but you shouldn't suggest refresh to fix issues, now how do I get my lastpass working? cause I have pop up blockers disabled & the permission page for firefox won't come up, just a blank page every time I try to copy a pw to paste in, manually, ugh, I hate this!

I stupidly accepted the Firefox suggestion to refresh my browser and everything i worked so hard for is gone. Its going to take me forever to FIX what your stupid site has screwed up. YOU REALLY OUGHT TO TELL PEOPLE IF YOU USE THIS YOUR GOING TO BE SCREWED

So I thought I'd just delete it and start over but even that has so many steps I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS STUPID CRAP AND I REALLY HATE FIREFOX FOR SCREWING UP MY COMPUTER AND MY DAY

I AM SOOOOOOOO SCREWED - all my bookmarks I HATE YOU I HATE FIREFOX I CAME TO YOUR SITE THINKING IT WOULD BE SAFE AND YOU HAVE DESTROYED EVERYTHING

I SEE in another thread about deleting firefox and creating another profile and about 10 million other steps i don't know how to do but if I close firefox as you said then i can see your frigging directions I HATE YOU

Modified February 16, 2016 at 10:39:48 AM PST by KC Chosen solution

I understand that you're frustrated, but it only takes a couple minutes to copy the files. Take it step by step. Do not delete anything, that will only make it worse. Do not use Windows' system restore feature, that may make it totally irreversible.

In another thread (https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1098179) you said the steps I posted were not clear. Where did you run into problems? Read this answer in context

I bought 2 weeks ago (intentionally) a New MacBook Air (Intel processor) rather than the new guinea pig version, and am having trouble with Firefox triggering the fan (the M1 doesn't have a fan so maybe I wouldn't have known of this problem?) and sending the Activity Monitor into the heights of use, and noise. The Activity Monitor show Zero Idle percent. The new MBAir has 8 Gbs of ram; Intel Iris Plus Graphics 1536 MB; 1.1GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i3. On my year old iMac, Firefox behaves properly, with right now more than 86% Idle re: the CPU. The Performance settings are identical (and the default settings) on both machines (Recommended Performance Settings). Anyone else have this problem? Is there a fault, problem, with this new MBAir?
