I tried Firefox 86.0 on ArchLinux with a KDE Plasma (Wayland) session. All Qt and GTK applications function normally. Firefox does not crash, but there is a noticable delay while typing or interacting with the mouse. It seems the input is received but it is not rendered on the screen.

I used the profiler and uploaded a profiler session to help you investigate the problem.

For some reason Firefox is deleting my browsing history every time I exit the browser. I do not have the setting enabled to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'.

This seems to have started happening since I told Firefox to 'forget' a couple of sites in my browsing history.

I do not have any external programmes such as antivirus that would delete the browsing history.

What could be causing this?

Hello,

I have a problem with Firefox. I think this is a bug. I have tested it in Firefox 85, 86 and 87.

When I press Alt, the complete title bar with the menus File, Edit, View, ... appears. Afterwards, when I click Minimize, Maximize, Close, New Tab or List All Tabs, the title bar is minimized again but nothing else happens. Those buttons just don't work.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Is it likely to be fixed sooner than three months/six months/years? Please tell me how I can add anymore useful information. Thanks for your support!

Is there a way to hide the current window when dragging off its one and only tab?

Hello! I'm a sort-of new Firefox user, and I just noticed some differences in behavior between Firefox and Chrome.

In Chrome, when I drag a tab out of its window so that I can move it into another window, if the window in question only has one tab, then dragging that one tab will hide the current window and show the background, allowing me to easily drag it into that background window.

This is especially useful when both windows are maximized.

In Firefox, I cannot do the same. Dragging a tab around a window with only that one tab open does not hide the current window, but rather, drags the tab around the browser window. I recognize now that this is because I can drag the tab to other places such as the Bookmarks menu, and if the above Chrome behavior was replicated, I would have a hard time doing this with just one tab open.

Though, I think the way to merge a maximized one-tab window onto another window in Firefox is to just drag the window a bit so it stops becoming maximized, then drag the one tab onto the window behind it. Is that how I'm supposed to do it, or is there a better way?

On another note, is there any way as of the moment to replicate Chrome's behavior with regard to this tab dragging situation? If not, thank you for your time, anyway. I'll just get used to the new way of doing this for now. Thank you all!

Many extensions ask for access to your entire browsing activity. While many extensions claim they are not doing so, this is not a technical restriction, but a policy restriction of their own.

In Chrome, there is a option within the browser to restrict extensions to operate within certain domains. For example, you could say that Honey is only allowed to run on *.amazon.com domains.

Is there a way to configure this option within FireFox? If not, what's the best way to request this feature be added? There are a number of extensions like Honey that are helpful for ecommerce and product research, but I want to provide a technical restriction to what data they can collect from the browser by restricting them to specific domains.

Thanks! Moose

Hi, I just switched from Chrome to Firefox. Everything is fine except this feature.

On Mac, you can set a text replacement in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text and use it in any input in any programs. It works with Chrome and other programs that have an input field. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in Firefox :/ Is it possible to implement this? I would love to see this feature in Firefox.

I saw there are some Add-on for this, but I don't want to use them as there is already a feature in Mac.

I added an example screenshot. When I type "mymail", it automatically suggest what I set up before.

Thanks, best wishes.

I am getting these errors in the browser console.

running FF DevEd 87.0b8. since this last update, i see that the console now expands not only the output, but also the line editor at the bottom. it no longer stays at the bottom as one line, it now scales in proportion to the rest of the console and often obscures important information. it cannot be dragged back to one line height either. the only solution is to pop it to the left and then back down; but even then, it will keep scaling again when you change the size of the DevTools window. how can this be fixed?

sidenote: how can the multi-line editor be moved to the right side? this would at least be a decent workaround until this bug can be fixed.

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

Hello there, two days ago the Google Calendar Widget inside the Gmail page stopped working in my Firefox Dev (version 88.0b2). I ignored that because I could continue to send and receive mails and I was thinkin it was a google server problem. Today I cleared cache and cookies to make a clean start, just to try if that could restore the Calendar Widget. Of course I did know that would have logged me out. Now it's impossible to log in in any Google Service because the login pagin is stuck right after I enter my email address! The console output shows warnings and a CORS error, as you can see in the screenshot. My browser is localized in italian, but the errors should be comprehensible anyway.

I can log in without problems with Chrome, but not with Firefox.

What's happening? My Firefox Dev version is bugged?

Hello, I've been having this problem when I tap extensions on the toolbar, their small pop-up windows appear in the top-right but when I tap on the buttons in that window, the pop-up disappears instead of accepting my touch input to one of its buttons, it used to accept touch input fine, but no longer does

I've tried refreshing Firefox, and then removing prefs.js in case I messed with any of the about:config settings but it was to no avail, and I've even tried upgrading to Firefox Beta but same problem persists in beta, disabling all the extensions except one still doesn't allow add-ons to accept my touch input.

To be clear, the touch input works on Firefox's inherent buttons in the toolbar, like Bookmarks, History, Downloads, even the Pocket widget and three dots beside it, but any external extensions I install from addons.mozilla site no longer accept the input, and my touch input works fine in Chrome browser, but I like to use both browsers.
