Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

Periodically Firefox will stop accepting media key input from my keyboard, the media keys continue to function for Chrome (neither are open at the same time, when functionality fails in Firefox, I open chrome to test if the keys are working) media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled is set to true, have swapped it to false and back, restarted, double and triple checked the physical media keys. Sometimes Firefox will just accept the media key input, and sometimes it won't

Every time I shut down my computer, Firefox needs to download all over again when I power up my computer. I need to sign in and start the sync all over again. After I customize my bookmarks on Firefox, these do not remain stable once I power up the computer and open up the Firefox App again. It always seems like it's downloading the app for the first time. Syncing is a mess. Is there any way I can keep this application stable even after I shut off and power up the computer again?

How can I get the english wikipedia back instead of the search page of the infamous sleazy big company?

My distribution updated Firefox from 78.13.0 esr to 91.2.0 esr.

At each larger update Firefox deletes the search engine for the English language Wikipedia -- maybe because my interface languge is German and I have the German language Wikipedia installed. Up to now it offered in the search field to add the English Wikipedia when I was on this page. But not anymore.

I truly cannot fathom why a browser, in this day & age, cannot put the list of open tabs & windows in the drop-down menu, in even SOME KIND OF ORDER! But no, it's nothing more than a long list, impossible to filter in any way, that is not in chronological, alphabetical, order of most recent used, no option to list via website or page title, etc. This is so ridiculously frustrating, along with the molasses lack of speed in opening up windows or tabs, that I'm on the verge of just chucking this entire app, for good. Why do our state-of-the-art advanced technological devices and apps, feel more like we're going backwards, and not forward??

A lot of Windows applications launch with the size of the window as it was when closed. Every time I Iaunch Firefox, I have to resize the window to fit my needs. Doesn't Firefox preserve those conditions for the next time the application is launched?

Thank you for your time.

Hi all.

Trying to be safer on the web I use the Https- Only Mode all windows, though some trusted web sites I will allow to be exempted.

One is the Australian weather bureau website which recently stopped being a Https site. (www.bom.gov.au)

I have entered the following addresses into exemptions *Image 1 attached

http://bom.gov.au http://www.bom.gov.au https://bom.gov.au https://www.bom.gov.au

However on opening a new tab in a private window ... and type "bom.gov.au" *image 2 attached.

I'm taken to an error page (http://www.bom.gov.au/akamai/https-redirect.html) saying that the web site no longer is Https. (I tried entering that full address in exemptions but only shortens it back to bom.gov.au)

Interesting the tab still shows the little padlock that indicates the tab is still requesting Https Only Mode?

If I turn that to Off, I proceed to the site and then if I look into the Exemptions the following has been added to my list *image 3 attached.

http://www.bom.gov.au^privateBrowsingid=1 set to "Off Temporary"

(I tried deleting that full address line and re-entering it to set it to "Turn Off" but its fails)

Is there a permanent workaround ???

I recently set up Firefox Recovery Keys knowing that I was formatting my PC. I am logged into my Firefox account on my laptop and have forgotten my password. Using Firefox Sync and Google Authenticator, I can log into Firefox on my Android.

I am trying to log into Firefox on my PC now, and have forgotten my password, and now none of the Recovery Keys I was given by Firefox are working (I am correct in saying these keys are 10 digits long, and you are given multiple keys when setting up the Recovery Keys?).

I cannot reset my password and lose all of my generated logins. Is there any other way to log into Firefox on desktop, say using google authentication or sync like android?
