For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

Keep my FF and TB installs as separate as possible from my OS installs. Have profiles in their respective app folders on a separate partition. I boot to different VHDs or partitions for choice of OS. Using batch file to delete FF and TB parent.lock files, but still having issues. Like FF bookmarks and history being used by another another app and TB not opening at all while maxing out CPU. Surely a better way to do this without repeatedly deleting FF's security files? Like a configuration settings for multi-boot systems? Thanks

"The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."

Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

(I'm using a desktop with Windows 10 without the recent disservice pack update.)

This issue is a recent development, even newer than the weird sans serif font issue that began with Firefox 90. The issue is intermittent.

When I scroll down a page using the wheel on my Logitech M510, parts of the page will refresh at different speeds. Usually this is noticeable as the illusion of a diagonal line and disappears as soon as scrolling stops. Sometimes part of the prescrolling display will remain rather than changing with the rest of the screen, usually as a rectangle. I've also started getting only partial display of dialog boxes when editing in Wikipedia, in which only part of the image changes.

The rectangular area not updated is usually near the centre of the screen. The Wikipedia box issue has the opposite issue - the only part of the box that appears is in the same spot that fails to refresh when scrolling.

If I tap on an arrow key, the unrefreshed portion of the screen gets back in sync with the rest.

The issue seems unrelated to website, occurring on Wikipedia, Facebook, and Google.

I disabled the Proton interface within a week of its appearance because it wasted so much vertical screen space, if that's any clue.

Hello

There are a number of PDF documents on my computer that unfortunately won't open in Firefox. Firefox is my default for opening PDF documents but I also tried Microsoft edge and they didn't open on that either. Some of them are from 2 1/2 years ago, some say 4-6 years ago. These files used to open on my computer without problems but alas not anymore! :( When I try to open them in Firefox I get a completely blank document with no error message. When I try instead to open them with microsoft edge I get the following error "We can't open this file. Something went wrong"

Thanks!

Third visit. Tried all recommendations with no luck. Just turned off enhanced tracking protection, again, with no luck. Edge continues to work just fine. I am getting very close to the point where I simply purge Firefox from my computer, after I have been using it ever since it appeared on the scene years ago. I am at caribsailor@yahoo.com, which I will reach through Edge.

Late last week when I went to dropbox.com to get some work files, I found that homepage looking as if it was shifted up (see image attachment). The upper areas like where the search bar is has become hidden behind the address bar area of Firefox, and I can't seem to fix it no matter what. I've tried clearing cache/cookies, resetting the zoom, and even in a private window it still has the same issue.

When I reached out to dropbox's support team, they came to the conclusion that it's something to do with the firefox browser itself, as logging through other web browsers like Microsoft Edge doesn't repeat this problem. I haven't done anything new to firefox like installing new extensions or anything, though I remember that there was an update recently and this might be the first time I've accessed dropbox since then.

The new Firefox is very disappointing and a big let down. I have been a dedicated Firefox user but these recent updates have made Firefox extremely slow and some of the useful functionalities are no longer there... Furthermore, with the previous versions, I would create my own short cuts by pinning them somewhere on the browser by either dragging the website address, or their logo and then by right-clicking the pinned tab, I would just type in a brief name to know what site it belonged to. Now, I can do it, but only to well-known sites such as Amazon, Facebook, Ebay and so on. I cannot do it with my own-interest websites. My own-preferred websites do occupy a space above the browser, but I cannot add a name to them. The little transparent square is just empty and I am unable to give it a name.

And, what is worse, when I open the new Firefox, all those pinned sites are being opened in the background and all the same time, and thus it is taking ages for me to get to my Home page. So far, with every update, I have lost certain functionalities which I had before.

I am sad to say, I might be tempted to start using Microsoft Edge on which I am still able to use these functionalities and at three times the speed compared to the new Firefox.

You have also done something lethal when uninstalling and reinstalling a Firefox browser. I have LOST all my bookmarks. In the past, the bookmarks would sit somewhere on the computer to be re-inserted with the new installation of Firefox. This is lethal and I am furious about it. I know, I know, I can export and re-import my Bookmarks, but it is not the same, I tell you.

You've done something with these updates which are not fit for purpose, I'm sorry to say.

I would like to at least be able to return to my own pinned short cuts at the top of the browser to make me use Firefox rather than going to the Bookmarks for my frequently sites.

Hello,

I can copy stuff, i can paste it anywhere else but not in the edit windows. The forum sems not to see there is anything in the clipboard. right-click context menue has no paste button. Bug seems only to happy with firefox. Check with IE, Edge.

"Fehlerbehebungsmodus" safe mode? dont fix it. The error seems new. im shure i uses copy /paste on that side at least last wednesday.

Google lead me to "dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled" false it works with that setting. question: can i leave it with that setting or have to expect trouble on other sides?

is this a know bug? any idea what happen here?

thank you
