I am running v122.0.1 on a Mac and since the last update if I open a Facebook Messenger message which pops up at the bottom of the screen clicking the minimise or close doesn't do anything and the message stays on screen The only way to get it to close is to log out of Facebook and then log back in again. Is this a bug in this release?

When I do a search, then click on one result, it loads the result website in the same tab; but the Back arrow <- in the menu bar is grayed out, so I can't go back to the search that I did to select other results.

When I watch videos on Youtube, suddenly it says I can only watch them in 360p or 720p quality, when previously I had access to 4K and 8K video at maximum and 1080p average. Youtube says "YouTube videos are available in many formats and qualities. But, some browsers do not support newer video formats or quality options. This restriction means these browsers may only have one or two video formats to choose from. We recommend upgrading your browser or operating system for the best viewing experience." This has only happened now and it only happens with Firefox, as when watching videos with Safari 1080p video is available. I am using the latest version of Firefox on a Mac mini with the latest Mac OS installed.

YouTube Videos Lag Frequently: Video Pauses While Audio Continues Especially in Full Screen

I am running Firefox 121.0.1, which is currently up to date, on a slightly older MacBook, which has the latest MacOS it can get: macOS 11.6.8. As the title states, YouTube is almost unwatchable on my machine. The video will pause frequently while audio continues, motion is not very smooth, which is especially noticeable watching sports, etc. I cleared cookies and cache, I have run in Troubleshoot mode as well as tried flipping some switches in about:config that I've seen in YouTube videos and forum posts about similar issues, but nothing has solved this issue.

YouTube in Google Chrome works fine, and I've been watching HD YouTube on this laptop with it for years without any issues, so I doubt it has anything to do with machine specs like RAM, CPU, etc.

I was hoping to make Firefox my new browser and start supporting browsers that aren't chromium based since Google Chrome is going too far with respect to privacy and the freedom to use the add-ons I like (e.g. adblockers like ublock origin), but so far I have not been enjoying Firefox for YouTube. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, sometimes firefox seems like it is working fine, other times certain sites like youtube, duckduckgo and spotify will not load, while others will.

I've gone through and done everything the help articles suggest, nothing happens - then a few days later everything's fine. It's gone on like this for a few months. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With my previous browsers--such as Chrome and Brave--I could automatically get into key sites without signing in every time. I thought this was due to cookies that my login passcodes. In the case of Google, it is by far the most challenging. Despite having a gmail account since early 2003, and using Google regularly since the '90s, it persists in asking me lots of questions and texting codes, etc.

My situation with Firefox is not working smoothly as it was when I used it for many years about a decade ago. I've already imported such browser data from these sites.

Can you help? Otherwise, I'll move on to Safari again.

Thanks,

Eckhart

Today I installed a new extension (Bitwarden) and want to add the icon to the toolbar. I can't find it anywhere. The add-on shows up in the add-on manager but there's nothing there to help me add the icon. The little puzzle piece in the upper right of the browser -- click on that and Bitwarden isn't listed.

How do I fix this? In Chrome there's a simple toggle switch in the extension manager to add the icon to the toolbar. Frankly, if I can't get this Bitwarden icon to display I can't use Firefox at all. Thanks.

Greetings, for some reason lately over the last couple weeks I have noticed that when I open a link to a site that I've had in my bookmarks for years it now opens that link or that page and then within a couple seconds another tab will open for advertisement or possibly even the duplication of the originally called upon link in the previous tab. I would like to stop these additional tabs from opening automatically without my request.

thanks in advance,

Hi, for the past few Firefox releases, I run into a problem where the mouse cursor does not change into a "hand" when hovering over something clickable. Instead, it continues to keep its arrow form. This is not simply a cosmetic issue, as it appears to cause issues with websites that rely on hovering for drop-down menus, as well as clicking on YouTube videos, for example.

The issue briefly resolves itself when I restart or reset Firefox, but it always comes back within a few hours. I have also tried disabling all extensions to see if there is any improvement.

I'm not entirely sure what's happened, but I can describe it. My Macbook Air crashed for reasons unknown, and upon rebooting it, I attempted to open Firefox, but was met with the message "A copy of firefox is already open". I found some old guide on using Terminal to discover two different profiles for Firefox. After restarting my computer, I accessed my Firefox tabs from before, but now when I open links from my email account, they default to opening up a new Firefox window, one where it seems my bookmarks don't exist. How do I remove the second profile without losing my bookmarks?
