I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

There's a new feature on Nightly that lets multiple profiles run at the same time. However, since i run my Firefox on a manually-defined (with -profile) profile, any links opened from outside Firefox open in a new window, with the blank default profile. Is there a way to override this?

I am using firefox nightly and it no longer allows me to drag and drop images from my browser to my desktop. If I "Save image as..." the image saves correctly to my desktop. I refreshed nightly, restarted in safe mode, disabled all add-ons, and updated it. Nothing has worked. I do not know my problem. This is a problem that occurs on every website.

Here is super short gif demonstration of the error: https://imgur.com/a/AHdguWI

I think it's similar to this previous problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1186235

Edit: When I say that it is similar to this previous problem I mean not that it has the same source problem, as much as it was closest to what I'm experiencing I think

So, every now and than in last week or two when I try to open Nightly i get like 20-30 windows of "Firefox Nightly has stopped working" error, like shown in the image. It continues to multiple until that message in the center opens and then i have to manually close all opened error windows.

Sometimes it works fine, sometimes this happens all the time. Anyone got a clue?

I treid restar in safe mode, then restart, no luck. if anything worse. Can't screenshot the unable to play audio error message now, cause no tab stay open without crashing asap. Security errors too. bad now on sites like pandora, i had to add exception

Restoring a session, either by setting as the default start up or when Firefox has crashed, it appears to restore the window geometry of the last session too.

The UI is drawn based on the old size when the new window is actually bigger/smaller.

Screenshot attached of when restoring an old session that was 33% of the screen an new window is 50% of the screen.

To work around this, I have to switch to fullscreen and back.

I'd like to know if there is a better way to solve this or if I should report a bug.

I am running Firefox Nightly 61.0a1 at 4k resolution on a Dell XPS 15 9560 on windows 10. When I go into fullscreen mode, there is a white border that stays on the left side of my screen. This only happens in fullscreen mode. I have tried uninstalling the program completely and reinstalling, and that did not work. I have done a lot of web searching to see if anyone else had this problem, but it turns out it's only me. There is a inquiry on the mozilla support website, but that was resolved by moving the taskbar to the bottom and then back. My taskbar is already on the bottom and when I move it to the side and back to the bottom, the line still exists. I have attached an image of what this is. Because the white line is hard to see in the preview, I would recommend opening the image in a new tab or saving the image and opening it in a photoviewer so you can see the line. It really ruins the overall clean and sleek aesthetic of the browser. The line also persists on the bottom of the screen as seen in the second picture.

Hi, I'm seeing near constant 30-40% CPU usage and ~1GB memory usage by the browser chrome process, and ~20% CPU but ok memoray usage by one of my (7) content processes. I'm on Nightly 61.0a1 (2018-04-24) (oldish Nightly because I'm nearly out of bandwidth so I can't afford updating and reloading all of my tabs at the moment). I recorded a performance profile: http://perfht.ml/2G77fPz. Could somebody tell me what's consuming CPU? Thanks.
