Hi, I am able to read a business mag on one Windows 10 Home system but on another which has Win 10 Pro , FF will not allow to STAY logged in to that magazine. I am using Windows 10 Home on the system that will not allow me to stay logged in. I have checked all settings I can think of. I have browsed all the Help Q&A here. I have chcked for all updates and confirm I am using the latest FF updates on both machines.

What could be in my settings that blocks me seeing my magazine?

Thank you. Adam

Hello All, I recently had to start up my brand new MacBook Pro up in "Safe Mode" to verify an unrelated problem. When I restarted my computer from safe mode, my Bookmarks were either gone completely or "empty" and I was apparently in a newer version of Firefox. I then trashed my Firefox application and tried to restore an older version via Time Machine and after I copy it to my Applications folder I get the message that I am trying to open an older version of firefox and then doesn't allow me to do that. When I followed the option to their extents, only the new version with NO bookmarks shows up.

How can I get my old bookmarks back?

Thanks bc

I use to have Firefox setup to always show twitch channels in English speaking only, but I recently reset Firefox and now I cannot seem to find out how to get the twitch channels to only show English speaking people. This was not a twitch thing, as I only changed Firefox. the word English always showed up right under the picture of a group of channels. as the picture shows I now have all the different languages in the same window and I have to type the word English in every time I run the browser which is multiple times a day.

This is not the setting (See 2nd picture of that area) that you see in settings for Firefox, as I have tried that and it does not change it.

How do I set this up again? I cannot find the setting for this anywhere on Firefox or Twitch.

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

I've been getting a PopUp recently (upper right corner below bookmarks toolbar) titled "Sign in with Google" saying "Use your Google Account to Sign in to...". I've followed the instructions on the internet to access my Google account and turn off this security setting (Google Account sign-in prompts) and it still appears. This does not happen on other chromium browsers I regularly use.

Why does Firefox keep displaying this PopUp, and more importantly, how can I suppress this annoyance?

Previously visited links of eBay items are not showing up in "purple". eBay has increased the length of those links beyond 255 characters which seems to have triggered this issue. I can click one item on a listing search page and it will be purple as long as I open a second tab when opening it. But when reloading the same list, the same item is not purple as they always used to be. Actually, a few still are, and those have the shorter URL. The links do show in the history record. This is very annoying, I can't imagine I am the only one who is finding this. It has persisted through the last two updates. This needs to be fixed.

For the last two days websites I use all the time, like my gmail and my aol mail have a red line through the lock icon in the URL. I was able somehow to fix yesterday, not today. SURELY Google itself is not an unauthenticated site. OR gmail. And for EVERY site to be a problem is ludicrous. To expect users to know who the website owners are for contacting is also ludicrous. This actually seems to be a probelm with FIREFOX itself. So, I will begin the transfer of my stuff to another browser and stop using Firefox entirely. I have been a user for probably 20 years, and always defended it against techies telling me to use something else. Turns out they knew what they were talking about. So fed up right now...

Goodbye, Firefox.

When I snap Firefox to one side of the screen to fill half my monitor, I'm presented with so much padding that there is in fact more screen estate reserved for nothing than there is for tabs. Is this supposed to be normal behavior? I'm using a 4K laptop monitor with 300% scaling, which gave me no wasted space issues in the past.

Upon restart, Firefox has kept dropping (not loading) hundreds of tabs. 555 tabs, as also listed in my sessionstore, but after loading is finished, only about 330 is actually loaded of those. Previously, there have been similar issues with different sets, and loading the full set over, and over again, sometimes the full set or very close to the full set is loaded, indeed. But it is clear that there's a bug or at least a very inconsistent behaviour in the code somewhere. How can this be propely troubleshot and fixed? Happy to help. Thanks.

I'm moving to a new computer and installed Firefox.

I've done a sync and everything moved over except for my container settings/configuration.

On the new Windows PC, the Firefox settings look like this: If I go to the Sync settings for Firefox: about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync It says: You are currently syncing these items. But Containers is not on the list.

If I go to the General settings for Firefox: about:preferences#general It says: Enable Container Tabs is checked but greyed out.

If I go to the Firefox Multi-Account Containers settings, Enable synchronisation is checked.

If I can't get sync to work, is there a file I can copy from the old computer and move to the new one that has all the Container conifguraiton details?

Thanks
