FireFox 128.0 (64-bit) is back to being a memory hog until everything slows to a crawl. Some releases were better and some are worse. I like FireFox but I am having a hard time getting my work done. Switching between different items slows to a crawl.

I accidentally disabled the keyboard shortcut for media browsing. For example, I was able to fast forward by 10 seconds by tapping the right arrow on my keyboard, but this has now been disabled. I cannot figure out how to get back to settings to re-enable this feature (checked online, in Mozilla support pages and on Mozilla community)

I think I tapped Ctrl + left arrow to bring up the settings box when I accidentally disabled the keyboard shortcut. Any help would be appreciated

This problem is NEW ... I've been using Firefox with Bible Gateway for literally YEARS, and this problem has begun in the last two days. I tried to follow the advice under other occurrences of this problem to others, and couldn't ... I don't get into code that way!

All I know is that I can no longer simply open a tab, go to that site, and use it; once that error shows up, no navigation on the page is possible.

Idk whether this is a problem for Firefox, or for Bible Gateway. I've contacted them, too.

But ... what can I do?

I have a problem with opening multiple tabs and displaying graphics on pages. I have to verify about 2000 pages and I open 10-20 each time. unfortunately, graphics are not displayed on them - written content and formatting are loaded, but without graphics. When I open pages one at a time, this problem does not occur. When I open 5 pages at once, at least one of them does not have any graphics loaded, the rest have them. How to make graphics load like in Chrome - on all open tabs en masse?

Why since I updated from like version 96 or something to the latest version 128.0 of Firefox, is there no sound on X (Twitter) videos until the end of the video has been reached one time first. I literally have to slide the slider to the end first, then replay the X vids now to get sound. And I cant do that on live streams there so Im stuck with zero sound on lives. What happened? This wasn't an issue until I updated Firefox finally.

This is a new problem, I've only had on this new device, previously when closing tabs, they wouldn't move till the mouse had been moved away.

Now, they move in the fraction of a second before the tab closes, which frequently means a different tab is now under the mouse and then that tab that I didn't want to close, closes.

I'm not sure what the problem was since I imported my profile from my previous device. Maybe there's something in the config that I can change to fix this?

Thanks!

Firefox Sync authentication API

I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum, but there seems to be nothing else which seems to fit better.

I have developed an iOS App which supports Firefox Sync since about 10 years, so users of my App can directly access their firefox bookmarks. Within these years it seems that Firefox Sync has deprecated the BrowserID authentication method (which I didn't noticed because everthing worked fine) but only since recently the relevant API call "certificate/sign" is no longer working, so the authentication process will fail.

Therefore I'm looking for information how exactly I can implement the authentication now. Unfortunytely it is very hard to find reliable API documentation. Most API docs that are found seem to be heavily outdated and still list the no longer valid "certificate/sign" API call. Even the docs which already mention that Browser ID will be canceled in the future are also already outdated and half of the links lead to 404 pages.

So I would like to ask the following: Is there any definite valid up-to-date API specification for Firefox Sync and its authentication process available (suitable for third-party Apps which can not rely on Firefoxs own internal frameworks and code), and where exactly can I find it. And if a need to register an app ID/client ID and secret to be able to authenticate the App, how and where can I do this? Can anyone point me to the right direction?

Thanks for all the help...
