When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

1) When I played a video on Youtube with Firefox via my computer speakers, they worked flawlessly. 2) Then I plugged in my headphones via the headphones jack, there is no sound. 3) I went to Windows settings and checked the volume mixer and tested the sound, the headphones worked. 4) I opened Edge and played a video on Youtube, the headphones work flawlessly. 5) I played a video through my media player, the headphones work flawlessly.

So my conclusion is that it is Firefox that is broken.

I closed Firefox and restarted it and tried steps 1 to 5 above, still got the same results. Firefox did not play any sound over the headphones while all the others worked flawlessly.

I restarted my computer and tried the steps again and still got the same results.

I also deleted Cookies and Site data from Firefox settings and still no luck.

Any suggestions?

This happens only on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition on one of my PCs and not the other. Firefox is version 113.0.2 (64-bit) and DE is 114.0b9 (64-bit)

Anyone experienced this before?

Hello all,

I'm running Version 108.0.1 on a mid 2015 Macbook Pro MacOS 12.6.2 Today I went to do a translation using the "to google translate" add-on and noticed it was missing from its place in the context menu. I go to "get more add-ons and re-installed it.

So why was it uninstalled without my consent? What can I do to stop this happening again?

I logged into my website using Firefox, 3 days ago and blamed the server for not allowing the images to appear in the Media Library properly. It took several attempts before the images would appear properly.

Today, when trying to upload a tiny 43KB image, the same issue happened, and again I blamed the hosting server.

However, I have tried uploading the same image to 5 different websites, using Firefox and the SAME thing happens. This time, it doesn't matter how many times I upload and delete the same image. It simply refuses to be displayed.

Back to the site I want the image uploaded in, and I used the Opera browser... POOF! Image uploads FINE and displays PERFECTLY in Opera, as well as AFTER logging out. Checking with the Brave browser, yes, it too sees the image... but when I try viewing the page in Firefox, the browser REFUSES to load the image.

I've tried 2 different computers using 2 different IP addresses, and an Android device, using Firefox and NOPE, the image REFUSES to load.

What is going on... am I the ONLY one experiencing this issue?

I've cleared cookies, I've rebooted my working computer... I've exhausted EVERY attempt at my end in trying to figure this out.

Can ANYONE shed some light on this issue please? I have many visitors to all of my sites that use Firefox, so this HAS to be resolved a.s.a.p.

Thank you in advance, Trish

Just now, I tried to use "Email Link..." under the File Menu and got a pop-up asking me to "Choose an application to open the mailto link." I have seen this before, several times, and usually fix it by going to Tools > Settings, under General > Applications, select "mailto" under Content Type, then select Gmail from the drop-down menu.

This time, however, Gmail is not presented as an option, in this pop-up. Clicking "Choose..." just opens up a Windows Explorer file-picker window.

I tried to fix this in Tools > Settings, under General > Applications. There, "mailto" just shows "Use other..." and if I click that, the "Select Helper Application" pop-up window is basically blank, with a message at the bottom saying "No applications were found for this file type."

I refreshed Firefox but it did not solve the problem.

I have tried to attached images but they will not upload.

I am running v100.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 11

Audio was working fine until recently. Now, firefox has no audio playing on any site.

Some sites show "PLAYING" in tab, but others like YouTube don't show that notification. Even with "PLAYING", there is no audio output.

I checked Windows settings and Firefox is set up correct (and the same as it was before it stopped working), see screenshot attached. Otherwise, I restarted Firefox, tried it in troubleshoot mode, and reinstalled Firefox. No changes.

Possible system changes include: Maybe a Firefox update occured and broke the program? I installed the game Civ5 from Steam which required some Windows VS redistributibles installed.

After searching and only finding old outdated post of other subjects. This is unique to hearing aids Bluetooth connection. I can hear from my hearing aids the sound made by windows but even with the sound setting pointing to the hearing aids no sound from a Firefox video. Must be the player problem. I don't know. Does the player need to be upgraded?

Every image I upload looks different in Firefox than the file opened in other programs and different than Google Chrome. It looks with less contrast for sure, and I think a little bit reddish.

Hi, I opened Mozilla after coming home from work today and had a few weird things happen. First things first, I was welcomed with a "Thank you for installing AdBlock" page. Which wouldn't be all that odd if I didn't use Ublock Origin instead. I removed the extension, ready to move on, but then I noticed all my bookmarks in the toolbar were gone! The ones saved to other bookmarks are still there, but the ones on my toolbar are deleted and not hidden. While I was investigating that, I found that my history looks weird? It's a bunch of pages on Nexus Mods that I visited a month ago or so but haven't visited recently.

Only my three devices, PC, phone, and Steam deck are logged in, but I'm worried my account has been compromised. I've changed my password and am trying to get two-factor authentication up.

Hi, Description: Sometimes when I move my cursour over certain elements on a website, black or white Blocks appear. These Blocks are always rectangular but usually not sqare. Oftentimes the block will have Diagonal lines running up to the top left corner of the Box. The apperance seems to be connected to mouse movement. They pop up and dissapear only when the mouse is moved. And stay when they have appeard and the mouse isn't moved. Esspecially highliting things makes them occur. Example images are provided. Occurance: They are not limited to one website, though they don't seem to appear everywhere. Their occurace seems to be consistent. They are not limited to websites however. White boxes can also appear over highlighted text in the URL, regardless of the website. Example image is attatched The Boxes occur in no other Browser and in no other Programm. They have been there for a while, so it's not the version. Tried Fixes: I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The boxes also appear in Private windows. I used the suggested feature for removing all settings and addons. Interestingly if I run firefox in Troubleshooting mode none of the Boxes appear.

Like I said, I only have these issues in the Firefox browser, so if it is a problem with my system itself I'd love to get your Ideas to what might cause them.
