1. Firefox apparently disconnects in Wordpress when making revisions to pages. 2. Toolbar in Firefox does not work when the main tab is open (or is extremely slow - hard to tell the difference). 3. Twitter links to threads, articles and embedded videos does not work most of the time. 4. Everything is slower.

I'm using Windows 8 - and have no intention of upgrading as I am gradually migrating to Linux. Should I revert to older version of Firefox? None of this happened with earlier versions.

Thanks

Hello,

I love your browser. However, I have noticed that with each update the menu size has gotten smaller and smaller. Can you please tell me where I can make the adjustment size to my preference. I have looked for addons, and through countless old videos trying to accomplish this but it's simply not happening.

I have the current version for 64bit systems, which is 96.0.1. Please help.

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

I am using Firefox 96.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.1

If you have "'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed checked in Privacy & Security/Cookies and Site Data then this causes sites that use a service worker to fail registration with the error:

"Failed to register/update a ServiceWorker for scope https://every-layout.dev/: Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode."

This *only* occurs with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Brave etc. all register the service worker OK. I know the workaround is to put in an Exception to Allow but this should not be necessary. In this case the service worker is use to provide access to paid for content and off-line reading.

I contacted the site's developers and they tell me that they have been waiting for ages for Mozilla to fix this issue and suggested I used an alternative browser.

Can anyone explain why Firefox behaves in this way and if this "feature" will be fixed on future releases?

Thanks

John

Recently (past several months) firefox has been taking every light mode theme I choose and changing it to dark mode. Do. Not. Want.

Once a theme has been "changed", I can never use it in light mode again. So I'm left mode-hopping in the hopes of being able to get a readable light mode for a couple days, until I have to change again.

I've checked other questioners but their answers didn't solve this.

Firefox on my Win 10 desktop seems to be saving logins just fine, but Firefox on my linux laptop isn't. Instead of saving the logins I've actually used (manually) to log into a website, it offers me instead the next time I attempt to log into the website a list of some user IDs I've never used on that website. Why is that?! Anybody have any idea why, where saving logins is concerned, my Windows Firefox is working fine, but my linux Firefox is not? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

The screenshot/snipping tool was a great addition to Firefox and I use it regularly. However I'm writing a tutorial on Google Maps at the moment and it would be nice if I had the option to select the same region of screen each time as I invoke some of Google Map's tools. So ideally I could lock the selection rectangle position and also its dimensions as I snapshot each page to show the steps involved in using Map's tool. Preset aspect ratios for the selection rectangle would be useful also. Maybe it's possible to do all this already?

I am currently running Firefox 96 on windows and for the past many builds of firefox over the past 8 months ebay listings in the item description are compressed. I am attaching an example image of the compressed description. It does this on both just plain text or formated descriptions. If I reload the listing it will correct it to full width. I have tested this on another machine that is also using firefox and same issue.

I have also disabled all extentions and cleared cache and uninstalled and reinstalled firefox with not luck.

Any suggestions as this is a pain.

Firefox is an excellent browser. I use it on all of my devices.

Is there a way to save the current tab to a URL file on the Windows (Version 7 and 10) file system. I realize you can do that by dragging the URL from the Firefox URL list box to the file folder but for various reasons I was hoping that it would also be possible as one of the choices from the Menu (as in "\File\Save Page As").

If that is possible I have another question.

In a Windows file folder with a number of URL files, can I select a number of those files and right-click the selected files and have them all loaded on to Firefox simultaneously.

I know that this worked with a single URL file in a Windows file folder (by Double Clicking it) but I have not been able to find a way to do it with a group of selected URLs in a Windows file folder.

Both of the above were available in the old (now no longer functional) IExplorer from Microsoft.

None of this is critical but I was just curious.

Thanks.

I prefer Firefox browser on my computer - currently using 96.0.1

 a month or so ago, when logged in to godaddy email workspace, the subject line cursor won't stay in place.

I'll type a word then space resulting in the cursor jumping to the front of the line of text. Sometimes it jumps after the first letter but always with the space bar and only in the subject line of this website.

If I type a word in the subject line, then space, the cursor moves to the front of the line of text... if I continue typing there and use the space bar the cursor doesn't jump. But if I move the cursor behind the first word and space, type another word and space it jumps again.

I worked with godaddy on the issue... after troubleshooting various browsers (this only happens when using Firefox) and other things they asked me to do they point the finger at Firefox. I hope this can be figured out, I do not want to use Chrome for email. thanks!
