Links to the same site, links to other site, links in webmail, bookmarks, history, media files, popups, pages opened locally through the file menu. Everything.

I never, as far as I can discern since beginning to use Firefox, have ANY need or desire for a new page to take over an existing tab. This seems to defeat the entire point of having tabs in the first place. And Firefox pre-57 did it just fine, with no noticeable problems.

The question has been asked before, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1109391 but no one ever seems to either give a straight answer, or to say "no, we are not going to support that", let alone explain WHY they aren't going to support it.

So I am no longer expecting a simple answer. How do I do it? Do I have to edit some configuration file like userchrome.css manually? Do I have to literally compile my own private fork of Firefox?

I have a unique and perplexing touchscreen issue using the latest Firefox browser on a 2017 Surface Pro (8/256) with the latest software and firmware updates.

When I add a new tab and subsequently try to delete that new tab, Firefox often freezes meaning that the browser does not feedback/refresh on my clicking (touching). HOWEVER when I force a browser refresh by clicking on any other window Firefox refreshes and acts on all the clicks I made while it was frozen. The clicks were processed by Firefox but it appears that the browser is not repainting after each click. To add insult to injury when I use a USB mouse this does not occur. Also I run identical Firefox on another desktop via mouse with no issues.

Certainly this seems to point to a Windows software issue but this issue does happen with any other apps including IE and Edge.

Among other things, actions I have tried include:

1. Run in safe mode 2. Re-install with new profile 3. Toggle many of recommended about:config settings 4. Change themes 5. Re-installed Windows touch screen driver

Below is my troubleshooting report.

Any ideas? Richard

A website/forum I have been using for a number of years all of a sudden will not load. Other websites are all loading correctly without any issues. When I do a google search for the website, it lets me enter the site but only when selecting the LogIn option which then takes me to the LogIn page & then lets me get into the website. When I log out though and then select the website from my bookmarks or from a google search, it comes up as a blank page unless I again select the LogIn option from the google search. I have checked with the website person & have been advised there are no issues with the website. I have not made any changes to any settings and this only happened all of a sudden. Can anyone advise why this is the case?.

The website is www.tacklenfish.com.au.

I had this problem for a while now, although it seems to start ocurring randomly and it is almost always fixed by restarting firefox.

First I thought Firefox is just not opening dialogs and menus at all. - The menu button (upper right corner) does nothing - When I press ALT to open the menu bar, the bar is visible, but the submenus are not - The download button does nothing

But today I had a certificate warning dialog. This dialog (if memory serves right) increases in height after the first action. this made it partially visible for me: The lower end of the dialog peeked into my desktop from above, showing me the buttons of the dialog. I experimented a bit and found out that when all these GUI elements should be visible, they can be interacted with via the keyboard. This leads me to think that these elements are in fact just off screen instead of missing completely.

As I said, restarting Firefox usually fixes this behaviour, but the problem comes back up again; either after a while of usage, or sometimes even directly after starting/restarting Firefox.

Things I have already tried: - Removed all plugins - Removed profile and started a fresh, new one - Reinstalled Firefox - Windows 10 "start fresh" reset (this one was not really to fix this issue, but for a different reason. this Firefox issue persisted anyway)

I am on Win 10 Pro version 1709, build 16229.371

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I've cleared all cookies. I have cookies enabled, including third party cookies. The site in question is not listed in the cookie exceptions list. This is not a log in error. I will get a "credentials invalid" message if I type in the wrong password. Any suggestions.

I have my default search engine set to Yahoo, or that's what it's supposed to be set to, but every single time Firefox has updated since New Year it's removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and set the default search engine to Google. It is extremely annoying.

Each time it happens I have to set Firefox back the way it's supposed to be - which means going through the clunky process of putting Yahoo back on the list - and then next update I get to do it all over again. It also likes to reset the default language to US English at the same time, but that's far less noticeable.

The platform appears to be irrelevant for this misbehaviour. Windows 7, 10, Android, and iOS, all four versions is doing it.

Why Firefox even offers Google by default is beyond me. At present it's the worst and most inaccurate search engine and more importantly: Firefox isn't Chrome. Google shouldn't even be ticked by default.

Hi, For many months now, every 5th to 10th time I open a webpage, the content is partially not shown. The URL is shown, but below that, there are large parts missing of even a hole part of the screen. Renewing the page fixes the missing content. I have tried refreshing (resetting) Firefox 2 times, but the problem keeps occurring. At least 2 friends of mine have the same problem, so I don’t think that it is caused by one of my add-ons (since these friends use no add-ons) or my graphical card or something like that. I can only think of 2 causes of this problem: 1. An undetectable virus which spread amongst my friends through mail. 2. More likely: a fundamental problem with Firefox, since an update, many months ago. I have Firefox 59.0.2 on Windows 10 Professional version 1709, all Dutch versions. A friend of mine with the same problem has Windows 7 Home Premium and another friend has Windows 10 Home. They all update Firefox. I show an example of a missing content. I only blurred private information on the site. Renewing the page after this screenshot fixed the problem. With a friend of mine, it even occured with the google search page, but I add below an example that recently occured with me.
