Hi, I have not been able to edit / add to my bookmarks for some time. When I go into the Restore section it contains several dates and various bookmark numbers (alot of bookmarks are missing). When I went to restore to a previous date that had all bookmarks I got a message that it was 'Unable to process the back up file' and I have lost all of my bookmarks. In addition, I am transferring from an old iMac to a new one possibly via a Time Capsule back up and have concerns the whatever the problem is with Firefox it will automatically replicate to the new computer? Thank you very much for your time & assistance. Jim C

There is a independent firefox process always running at my background using 100% of one of the core. because of just one core left for windows, it crashes frequently. Also no matter what i do on firefox or keep it idle, that process always takes 100% of the core. please tell me how to solve that.

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

My money program uses an importer to download files directly (rather than saving to desktop & manually importing. The institutions' choices always include OFX, QFX, and QIF. The Application list in Options lists OFX -- in two places-- and QFX. Both are assigned to the importer.

No matter what format I choose, I have to browse for the importer (several clicks). To check, I downloaded account information for several accounts held with the same institution, cycling through those 3 formats. Same result each time. "Always do this" is checked and OFX and QFX are assigned to the importer as you can see in the screenshot.

Shouldn't FF be adding QIF when I download activity in that format? I certainly didn't add OFX or QFX manually! And can anyone explain why "Use importer" is broken?

TIA mm

I sure hope you can. I purchase Family Tree Make 2019 recently and chose to download the program. I currently have Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. But Edge will not allow me to download the program: it sends me a message that it is blocked. I've spent several hours trying to untangle this problem with FTM support and doing my own research on the 'net. The latest suggestion is that I try a different browser and Firefox was suggested. Now I'm not interested in becoming computer savvy; I just want to do genealogy. Is this something Firefox can support without thirteen pages of instruction? My second question: I will have to buy a new operating system this fall as Windows 10 is apparently no longer supported. What program would you recommend? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and whatever version of Linix that used. Anybody know why I can't turn the title bar off and why the screen rendering generally looks a bit flaky? I'm guessing it has something to do with the display manager that Google use and that it's not responding any of the Firefox settings. I've tried all the easy stuff like the title bar check box and other settings in about::config

Any ideas?

https://auth.band.us is all Lockwise will save. Choosing email sign in brings up https://auth.band.us/email_login?keep_login=false which Lockwise does not recognize. I hoped setting signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup = false on the about:config page would work but it does not.

When I access Task Manager from the Firefox menu or just type about:performance the screen comes up, but it only shows information for Task Manager itself (low impact) but doesn't show information about open tabs / websites or add-ons.
