I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

Also I would like to change the font size of the console for both themes.

2) Is it possible to change the folders of bookmarks to yellow. I read there are SVG. I tried to solution that are meant to change the folders to yellow, but failed. Can someone point me to a dummies guide for a solution.

The first one is the more important issue.

I am running Firefox 107.0.1 (64 bit) on a Dell Inspiron i7 10th gen with 12 GB RAM. Windows Edition Windows 11 Home Version 22H2 Installed on ‎11/‎1/‎2022 OS build 22621.819 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22636.1000.0

Recently have had new issue with websites, like the NYTimes, which run live video embedded in the site. The entire screen will go black and cannot be retrieved. But the system is not down, I can toggle to another application, and then when I go back to the Firefox, I can "save" it by quickly selecting a different tab. If I wait a few seconds, however, the offending tab will crash again. The other symptom is that after this happens, the entire screen in any application seems to be unstable, with transient fuzziness of the fonts, just a for a few seconds, whenever the focus of the screen is moved or changed.

This problem does not occur in "Troubleshoot Mode", but I have gone through all the recommended step by step eliminations of possible plug ins, extensions, Norton, firewalls, refreshes, start up cache clearing, cookie clearing, to no avail. Cannot find discussion of this problem in Support. I do not experience the problem if I run the offending website in Edge. Any suggestions most appreciated, txs!

This is on latest Nightly 109.0a1, but started after I switched from a AMD RX 570 4GB => AMD RX 6600 XT 8GB, never had the problem with the old vega based GPU.

What I have tried

  1. If I disable hardware acceleration the lag stops.
  2. If I start the browser in safe mode, the lag stops
  3. Playing it in Firefox 1.0.7.1 with HW accelration, no lag!
  4. Disabling all extensions, do not stop lag

If I look in task manager, there is nothing to report, no excessive cpu or memery usage

On one website *only* and only with *some* hyperlinks there I have trouble opening the hyperlinks. I can work around the issue, but I am curious what causes it -- and if there is a way to avoid having to work around. Here are the symptoms:

1. (right)Click on the hyperlink and 'open in new tab' --> does not open 2. Same as 1) but 'open in new window' --> does not open 3. Same as above but 'open in new private window' --> opens fine!

Alternatively 1. (plain click) on the link --> does not open 2. above + use back arrow (<-) to go back to page with the hyperlink and then use the forward arrow (->) to return to the hyperlinked page and it opens!

Additional info: FF 107.0.1 (64-bit) on Macbook pro M1 Ventura FF preferences set to open links in new tab, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't depending on the site FF advanced setting browser.search.openintab is set to TRUE (but it failed with FALSE also)

So I am stumped!

Hello, I have an issue that I haven't found a fix to. I used a Time Machine backup to transfer settings from my old Mac to a new one. When I first opened the Firefox Browser 107.0.1 (64-bit) running on MAC OS 12.6.1, it opened the last 3x windows I had open on the previous machine. Unfortunately, I actually had 8 windows originally open. Now those other 5x windows are still showing in the 'Window' menu drop down, but they no longer exist. I can't switch to them and I can't re-create them. How can I clear this list and/or update it to only those which are actually open?

I have already cleared the cache, cleared the history, deleted all cookies, etc. I'm hoping there is some trick or script I can run to reset this. Perhaps one of the Mac OS library files? I'm sure there are some erroneous orphan files located from previous installs.

Thanks for any help you can provide. Regards, Tony

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,

Specifically this is interesting because regular youtube content *will play just fine*

This is something I can readily reproduce for testing, diagnosis, and troubleshooting.

Please note: I have literally completed all fundamental troubleshooting several times. I respect due diligence and double checking, its just that I wish to be clear I've spent a few hours today on this and am thus far unable to impact the situation at all. --Note on Note: This includes disabling settings/features in firefox. Everything having to do with privacy, networking, hardware accel, and probably another category has been toggled multiple ways. This does not include mucking about in the detailed settings page ( about:config, etc etc). I do not memorize about:config settings I just use reference material to achieve a goal then promptly move on in life, and I am not a professional web developer though I can program so I haven't attempted to fiddle there at all. All that is to say consider any suggestions involving about:config or similar depth of settings to be *untested by myself on this matter* and therefore ripe for suggestions!

Oh, I also have not tested this in a VM. Although I certainly can if requested. I can note that a VPN does not impact this described behavior.

Well, I am able to get teh Ads to play prior to a live stream, sometimes. Note: Ads are not always displayed anyway so I cannot really know the statistics on this for sure.

At this point I have reinstalled Windows10 several times and can still reproduce this problem. All windows security settings have been toggled without impact on core issue. This has been reproduced through multiple win10 reinstalls.

Other browsers, other operating systems will function. I can use firefox on my various linux systems. I can use several versions of firefox to play these same videos on my linux systems.

However win10 at whatever patch level is unable to utilize firefox to play youtube live streams. Again, nothing I've done has impacted this behavior ( reg yt vids OK w/ preview and chats, live stream vids NOT OK, though ads and chats display fine )

I'm several varieties of engineer (Electrical, Networking, Security, Systems - whatever other varieties HR departments decide to use ) and can happily grab whatever data, or create whatever testing conditions that can be asked of me.

Thank you,
