Since a week or two my Firefox tabs are crashing more and more often. At work on MacBook and at home on PC.

Deleting the cache and cookies and even starting in Safe Mode are not helping - in fact while writing this very message had 5 crashes meanwhile!

Don't know if you can access the crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/4cd570db-d90d-4fcb-aee6-0a1660230818

Since a few days, it is not possible to copy-and-paste any external text or content into the text field of WhatApp Web on Firefox. It works fine on Chrome. Also text manually copied from a previous WA message can be pasted.

We tried on other PCs with Firefox and Chrome, same situation. So it seems to be a problem of Firefox latest version.

I have a slight problem. I'm currently using Firefox 116.0.3 and it seems that it can't update. The automatic updating will run, and then it will fail (this is all the time when using Firefox). It will recommend me to download the newest version from the website, but then the CDN will and I will be presented with the "connection was reset" error. This happens both on my Windows 10 and Windows 11 machines. Both are running Firefox 116.0.3.

Funnily enough I tried to see if I could download the newest version on Edge (Chromium), which it could but the version I got from the website was the same version I have now. I wonder if this is something to do with my region as I'm based in China and I'm aware that some software can have...problems.

Also, when trying to download version 122.0, it is fantastically slow and will often fail to complete.

Is there anything that could be suggested as I really don't want to use Edge.

Hi folks.

I use Firefox a lot. I have about 36 windows of firefox open and some of those can have a LOT of tabs on/in them.

I have recently "evolved" to using a computer monitor. Before then it was an old flat screen TV - 1336 x 768 resolution (there about).

Now I have a 1080p monitor and things are different.

I use Node-Red (dashboards) and they took a beating with the new size.

I've set THOSE tabs to 133% magnification - and yes that isn't the correct size to emulate the TV. But I only thought of doing this a fair way down the track of trying to rearrange the layouts. (MY MISTAKE)

But I realised that at least not too long down that rabbit hole.

So that WINDOW is set to 133% zoom. But just now I tried to zoom out of another tab on that window and realised that the zoom on the other tabs is changed too.  :(

Am I missing any tricks? I know I could move THOSE tabs to a whole new window and that's that. But in the bigger picture I just want to check.

Hi, I have tried to create a google account two times. Each time Firefox didn't save the google account name.

Firefox did save the password though. Just the username is empty. So, the third time I will write down the username.

I know how to create a Google account. Pretty sure it will work. My question is, why is this happening? Am I paranoid thinking Google doesn't like to support Firefox?

Best regards

I have been using Firefox as my default browser in Windows for a number of years without problems until recently. However I now find that, when I log on to sites where I have accounts, I am not automatically signed in. When I select sign in I am taken to a sign-in page where, on some accounts, , my usernames and passwords are already filled in. I have tried following Firefox guidelines with regard to settings and options, all to no avail. Can you assist me please.

Hi, I have a problem and I can't find any solution.

I am Linux Mint Cinnamon user, When I type Korean in the Firefox Browser, type Korean word and type 'spacebar', blank is made before the last character.

For example, like this. '안녕하세 요', '반갑습니 다', '오늘 은뭐하세?요 ' like 'firefo x', 'googl e' How can I solve this problem?

Several times over the past couple weeks, I click on a Google search result, look at the page, decide it's not exactly what I'm looking for and go to hit Back. Except it's grayed out! I click and hold on the back button and no history pops up!

Even stranger, when I go to History, the search is there! It's like the link not only opened in a new page, but closed the old one!! Is this Firefox doing this to me, or Google's nasty tracking links? Am I the only one?

Hi Mozilla Team,

I recently had a catastrophic issue with my computer and had to do a factory reset. I was removing my dead name from my folder structure and profile on my machine, and this caused it to bork...I know even my silicon hardware is transphobic *sigh*. I know there are articles talking about this issue, and I know for security and privacy your policy is that all bookmarks are lost with a password reset.

However, these bookmarks are very very invaluable, and contain so much information regarding my transition, my career, etc. I just really would love to try and find a way to recover these if at all possible. I know you and your team make recovery possible in an slew of ways, and I really don't know if I set any of those up. I thought I might of, but I am still picking up the pieces from this reset. I know I should have been more proactive about recovery and really thought I was, and I am really kicking myself for not being more explicit/diligent.

I am happy to go through any verification process. I know you have policies for a reason, but I can't just give up on so much important information. There is a years worth of memories during a time, where memories and identity are shifting. I am literally begging to not lose this data.

Best, Jean Ferrante

The usual way is you click on the three dots (upper right) and you get an EDIT option. All they do here is offer an option to QUOTE the post.

I use FF 116 on windows 11. For months, I have had problems logging in to web sites. At first I thought the problem was with the web site, but I have come to the conclusion it is an FF problem. GlobeandMail.com, gem.cbc.ca and rbc.com for example ask for me to log in. I go through the steps giving my password and login name and the web site seems to accept these without complaint but it continues to want me to log in. I end up having to use Edge which works fine. Is there a solution?
