The German word concoction "Verschlimmbessern" which translates into "constantly 'improving' something until it actually becomes worse or dysfunctional".

I'm at a point now where we all give up on Firefox as these constant updates and uncalled and not requested changes not only become annoying but also introduce new dysfunctionality. (just like Windows 10 updates)

Too many to list here. but this job securing through constant new updates and changes gets very annoying.

Now the search feature has changed into some absurdity having to be in the address bar. We don't need that we don't want that! we wanted like it is and always was before.

Searching support I found answers but applying them does not work: "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" change to false Search "keyword.enabled" change to false Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" change to false browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus change to false browser.urlbar.update1 change to false browser.urlbar.update1.interventions change to false browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips change to false

About to uninstall this nonsense altogether and install an old version again or better yet just give up on it and find another browser! I need a reliable browser that works and not something that annoys me after every update.

Hello there to anyone who can help me with this problem that I'm having right now. Yesterday while watching and going through the videos on youtube, while watching a video, it suddenly started to lag and not move as smoothly much as before when I have on a higher quality like in 1080p 60fps or 720p60fps.

This has happen to me a couple times before when I couldn't find a way to fix it like when my my laptop was acting stupid and was resetting itself and showing a blue screen when it happen and had someone help me take it to the store and have it fixed and the reset my laptop or something and had to go redownload Firefox and I think the problem stopped working.


Yesterday and today I tried searching and looking up how to fix this and find answers that tell me to go to the about:config and change somethings to false or true whatever and it still has this problem. I hope changing it to whatever doesn't mess it up anything even more.

I thought I had to go update Windows or something since recently a couple of times the youtube videos get stuttery and not move as smoothly at times. I can't remember much this one but I either just close Firefox to hopefully that it goes back to normal or I have to update Windows to restart my laptop and it works and it goes back to normal.

But this time when I did all that and I try to update Windows from my laptop it was doing what it does updating installing or downloading yesterday. The problem is still there and the videos on youtube are still stuttering. And I try to see if there were more things to update there was nothing there and says its up to date.

I linked a video that has a 60fps option on a another browser Microsoft Edge to see if it works from there and video when putting it on 60fps works fine there. So this must be a Firefox problem or something.

So if anyone can help me with this problem. Please tell if there's anything else I can do to get these videos on youtube to work on Firefox in 60fps and hopefully can try to easily fix this and hope its nothing complicated to do. Or if there is a bug or something that's making these videos stuttering and everything please try to fix this problem that's going with me right now. Cause i don't want to have to deal with problem I had before again forever and/or if its permanent.

Hopefully maybe the next update for Firefox might fix this problem I have from these youtube videos, but I don't know. Whenever an update for Firefox happens sometimes, the videos on youtube start to stutter and not move as smoothly with putting it on 60fps and have this problem again.

Thank you if anyone has the time to look at this and hopefully someone can get me the answer to finally fix these videos that are freezing stuttering and stuff there.

Hi, I've been having an issue lately where Mozilla FireFox won't connect at all to anything I try to work on through FireFox. It keeps giving this error to me about Security Issues.

I've read through other asks' about this, and saw that changing my Proxy to "No Proxy" worked for many others. HOWEVER, this has not worked for me at all, I've checked all my proxy settings, and nothing has worked at all. I don't know what is going on.

I cannot open any certificates associated with it, or any of the "Learn More" extension.

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

Having a strange issue where there's lots of texts & icons/buttons missing on sites I log in to on my Mac with Firefox - for example the dashboards of my Wordpress sites, the dashboard of my webhost, the dashboard of my anti-virus software.... They all work fine when I access them on other devices so it seems to be my Firefox browser or the Mac itself. But same thing is happening when I try using Safari on my Mac. Is it an issue with these browsers not allowing a certain script to work? I downloaded Chrome to try it there and they work fine! Thoughts? Apple could not figure it out...

UPDATE (4 AUGUST 2021): Problem solved. Disregard original question below. UPDATED

Yesterday, the websites jwz.org and dnalounge.com (yes, the two websites run by one of Mozilla's conceivers) stopped working on Firefox. They just keep saying "Connection Timed Out", despite every other website loading fine.

I went through all the add-on-disabling and troubleshooting steps emphasised here, but it hasn't solved the problem.

This happens in both Firefox desktop and mobile for Android, but works fine in other browsers. Again, I went through all the steps of disabling add-ons/plug-ins and operating in Troubleshooter mode.

Last week, I had to re-installed OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) on my iMac because of lightening bolt surge. And, after doing so, I then had to re-install the Waterfox browser app. to gain better access to my email account (because the old version of Safari that came with the vintage OS re-installation is no longer viable)

My questions are: 1. Do my former bookmarks (or the Waterfox profile that they were stored in) still exist somewhere? and 2. Is it possible to retrieve them to replace (and/or add them to) the new profiled bookmarks created with the updated Waterfox app.?

I've already tried following some of the suggested help from the forum questions that I read here, but have been disheartened because no backups for my years of bookmarking seem to exist. Sadly, I never knew that there was a way to back up bookmarks prior to this recent investigation.

Hello,

I've been having the EXACT SAME PROBLEM as the person that posted this first! I have been getting a problem lately where nearly all the text on a couple of websites does not display. Only a few characters, such as 'T', 'E', 'L' and '4' display. I have attached screenshots of one of these websites - how it displays in Firefox vs. how it displays in Google Chrome. It also happens in the chat function of the online lecture video system my uni uses (Blackboard Collaborate Ultra), which runs in the browser (it's not a separate app).

I did a search for similar problems on Mozilla support and tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, however nothing changed. Here's a link to one of the pages with the problem as I cannot upload the screenshot photo https://www.primaryarms.com/Brand+Primary-Arms

I'm using Firefox 78.12.0esr on MacOS X 10.11.6

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a primary password. Every time I open up the Firefox browser, I have to manually introduce the password.

That's fine. No problem there.

Here's the problem: even after I've signed in, sometimes, in what appears to be the system glitching, I'm required to continually introduce the password, even when I'm already signed in. The browser KEEPS asking for the password, when I've introduced it several times.

Again, this doesn't always happen. But it should never happen.

I'm using Macbook Pro. The latest operating system. Firefox browser also up to date.

Clicking on the Comments section in any ZDNet article (https://www.zdnet.com/article/) gets no response at all. The Comments section doesn't open, I'm not prompted to log in -- nothing. The cursor does change from the default arrow to a hand with pointed finger, as usual, and the Comments bar color flashes as it should when I click on it -- but that's the limit of interaction. I've tested the link with Chrome and Bing and the function still works there, but not in Firefox, and apparently hasn't since about the 26th of July. What's going on, and how can this problem be addressed?

I've been using Firefox for years. Nothing has changed, but within the last month or two it has this habit of more or less not working until I close the whole browser and reopen.

It happens when I open up a new tab and try to search something. Sometimes (maybe only 10% of the time) it will just not do anything. Most of the time (the 90%) it works just fine. But that 10% failure will fill in the address bar with what I was trying to search, and it will show something like "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=example+search+phrase", but nothing loads. I can even type "www.google.com" but then nothing happens. Clicking favorited links on the toolbar usually stops working at that moment also. I have to close everything and then reopen, and then it magically starts to work again.

I've even uninstalled and re-installed firefox. No luck.

It's become rather annoying and if I can't figure out the cause it may be time to switch over to chrome..

Win 10, Firefox v90.0.2
