I used to create desktop shortcuts to websites by dragging the padlock thumbnail to the left of the URL to the desktop. (see first image)

Now it does not create a shortcut but instead creates a file on the desktop with a .URL extension.(see 2nd image) Double clicking on the file will take me to the website, but as a file and not a shortcut, I cannot modify the name displayed or change the icon displayed.

Am I looking at something new in version 96 or have I inadvertantly changed something in the settings?

Crash also happens when passed the argument `-safe-mode`. Does not happen in new profile. Crash happens both in v96.0.1 and after downgrading to v95.0.1. Console output mentions "Exiting due to channel error." I have not been able to find a way of increasing output verbosity.

Hi, Firefox brings my computer to halt after a few minutes of usage. The only thing I did after opening the browser is go to support page and the FirefoxCP WebExtensions process memory usage went over 20 GB of memory.

I have tried restarting my MacBook a few times as well as restarting firefox, but nothing has helped. I’ve the latest version of FireFox installed, and using a MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory.

I haven't made any changes nor added anything new lately. I think it may have started after the last update.

Thank you for your time and support!

Hi! I'm trying to access a site however there is a padlock at the top of the screen with a red line across when I click on it it says "Site information for -----.com" "Connection not secure" (photo below) which is not letting me scan a barcode or put in my pin to access my account when I put in my pin, and press enter, it doesn't move onto the next page I'm almost certain it isn't the website, because it works on other devices which doesnt have this padlock Is there anyway to remove this padlock?

Thanks

Hello. I want to report a performance issue (slowness) caused by the overexcesive virtual memory usage by Firefox sub-processess.

State description

After runing Firefox, I observed in the htop the process of Firefox (and it's sub-processes) and compared it with the about:processes

I had discovered that main Firefox process opens many sub-processess that aren't even used (they does not appear on the mentioned above "about" page).

Additionally, in some mement, at latest one of the created sub-process start to use 28.6 GB of virtual memory, like each of the created by it sub-process. This causes quite big loose of stability of the browser and even system

While startup of Firefox I'm getting the "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" error message.

All because Firefox seem to be too stupid to follow a correct symbolic link to place (on another drive) where the file exist and has propper permissions (is accessable).

Thereof, please notify the developers about the described above bug, that it can become quickly fixed. Thanks

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading
