Firefox can't seem to hold on to, say, a banking website or web page when I navigate away to another app, such as to answer the phone!

I'll be on a banking website, and when I get back to Firefox from the call 1 minute later, it will greet me with the login credentials page.

If I'm trying to login, and I'm on the 2fa page, and I answer the phone call to get the code, when I get back to Firefox, I'm no longer on the 2fa page, I'm back on the login credentials page.

If I'm trying to log in, and I'm on the 2fa page, and I navigate to the email app to get the code, when I get back to firefox, I'm no longer on the 2fa page, I'm back on the login credentials page.

The situation forces me to use text messaging for 2fa when using Firefox.

I tried recreating the situation in the Chrome browser, and it doesn't seem to suffer from this problem. I navigate away to the email app, come back to Chrome, and I'm still on the 2fa page.

The situation exists for most banking sites, but is not exclusive to only banking sites, as it occurs on many other types of websites, as well, requiring 2fa logins.

Is there some setting in Firefox that I'm overlooking that causes these websites to default back to their login credentials pages just because I went to another app on the phone for a second?

I always keep two Youtube tabs open at all times on my computer. After a while of running, however, the site starts to get increasingly laggy, in a way that simply reloading the tab does not fix. (I am aware that this is likely a result of one of the extensions I have installed that affects Youtube's behavior, specifically SponsorBlock and Return Youtube Dislike, but I am not willing to uninstall these.) I also know of a "force reload" - pressing ctrl + shift + R instead of just ctrl + R in order to clear the cache or something.

However, whenever Youtube starts getting really slow, I instead like to do something I call "crashing the tab" - I open my system monitor, look for the current most CPU-intensive "Isolated Web Co" process, and end it. This pops up an error message in Firefox that says "Gah - your tab just crashed!" and offering me the option to restore it. After restoring it from this window, the performance is back to normal.

My question is, is this beneficial, or is it functionally identical to a normal force-reload? Is the improvement I see between this method and force-reloading the page just placebo? And if not, is there a simpler way to do it without opening a second program?

I try to sign-in to my KP.org account and I get a white page with the message (Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.) I called KP and they said there was nothing wrong with their site. I added the URL to the cookies exception list with no result. I tried to paste the exact URL of the sign-in page into my bit-warden and it said it exceeded the 1000 character limit. I can sign-in on Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox. any ideas?

I accidentally ticked the "don't allow [site] to show new windows" (I'm browsing in Spanish, forgive me if this isn't how it's written) box and now one of the functions of the site stopped working because it requires the user to confirm their decision via the pop up window. I'd like to know how to revert this. I've given the site special permissions for pop ups and it hasn't worked.

Help please.

I had to factory reset my laptop (or rather, an IT support person took over my machine and reset it before I could back up things properly!). I was not able to restore my previously opened tabs (there were a lot, like >100). It appears that all of those tabs still are showing on my mobile version of firefox as 'synced tabs'. Is there a way to pull that sync information from my phone to my laptop? If I press on "synchronise tabs" will the phone receive my laptops current tabs (not what i want), or will it update the laptop (what i do want)?

Thank you.

I am always having this problem of losing all of my open tabs. I am sure I am not the only person who has many parallel task running. Then, for whatever reason, the browser crashes, and in opening the browser, the single "Restore Previous Session" button is the only lifeline back to all of that work.

Would it be too much to ask for a simple session restore feature that is indexed to history? So we could go back to yesterday's session, or last week's, and not lose so much.

This loss of ongoing work happens to me 2-3 times a year, and amounts to untold losses of time, effort, and money.

Dear Anyone.

I've got Firefox 125.0.3 - but ALL Firefoxes have ALWAYS done this!

I've got 12 gig RAM. I've been browsing for - say - a couple of hours or so, I look at how much RAM I've got spare and it's down to about 2 gig. So I close Firefox via Task Manager and all my RAM comes back. Then I REOPEN Firefox and all the old tabs are restored - but this time around, hardly using any memory! Which tells me the hewge memory munch was unnecessary the time before.

Firefox has ALWAYS done this from day 1. Nobody's ever fixed it, through all these updates. I've got the latest version and it's STILL memory-munching. How do you stop it? It's just annoying because you can be using other software that crashes because it runs out of memory, because Firefox has munched all its memory for no reason.

This is just a question, I'm Asperger's, I sometimes sound like I'm asking a leading/angry question but I'm not. (Not this time anyway!) Is there a workaround for this memory-munching problem, is it ever going to be fixed or is it too deeply embedded into Firefox's programming TO be fixed?

Yours respectfully

Chris.

Hello there!

I recently had to reinstall Firefox as my original drive died. I had used about:config to disable the bookmark bar favicons as I have a visual aesthetic I enjoy on my computer.

Now in 2024, it seems that all of the settings I previously used are no longer functioning when toggling them to false within about:config. They were browser.chrome.favicon, and, browser.chrome.site_icons .

Doing searches, all I can find are tips and tricks from many versions ago, some dating all the way back to 2007.

Does anyone know how, in the current version of Fires, which at the time of this writing is 125.0.3 to remove the favicons? I have attached a pic of the look I am going for, which is the default globe icon, instead of the annoying favicon. I tried the userChrome.css trick, but it completely removed the globe icon as well.

I know there has to be a new setting in about:config that will work, I just can't seem to find it.

Any help would be most welcome! And thank you!
