Firefox Bookmarks, Tools, History Window Not Coming On Top

I am using:

  • Mozilla Firefox 94.0
  • Linux Mint 20.2
  • Linux Kernel 5.4.0-90-generic

In Firefox, the issue is with

  • Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks
  • Tools > Downloads
  • History > Show All History

If I have opened Bookmarks then for some reason minimized the window , or clicked somewhere so the Bookmarks window is in the background , and I again click `Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks` , nothing happens . My expectation in the Bookmark Window will come on top.

This is true for Download and History window as well.

If I have opened Bookmarks / Download / History then for some reason minimized the window , or clicked somewhere so the Bookmarks / Download / History window is in the background , and I again click `Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks` or `Tools > Downloads` or `History > Show All History` nothing happens . My expectation in the Menu option I clicked, its Window will come on Top.

Just to be clear I have even tried by clicking `Always on Top` on the Bookmarks / Download / History window.

Why this is not happening?

My windows 10 went berserk. I had to reinstall it and I lost my Firefox browser that took a few months to fine tune it to me. I reinstalled Firefox but it did not come back to where it was two days ago; just the basic browser screen.

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.

I used to be able to visit the Bureau of Meteorology Australian weather radar sites but now I get a message "You will shortly be re-directed to http://www.bom.gov.au". Nothing happens. I've found that another browser allows me to visit those radar sites suggesting those radar sites exist and that there may be a problem in the Firefox system. Seems this may be a known problem.

Hi,

       I currently run Firefox 94.0.1, I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit - Ver 21H1  - OS BUILD 19043.1266

I have 16 GB Ram. Storage is Samsung SSD 465GB & 3 x 1TB hard drives. I use the Microsoft Virus and Firewall apps. I also run Mozilla VPN.

Recently on two separate occasions and via two different methods, email links to two separate Microsoft Forms. Both appear using the link in the emails and look normal?, what ever that may be. after selecting or filling out the forms, you get to the end of the first page and hit the 'NEXT' button. And nothing happens.

I have tried turning off Mozilla VPN, still nothing happens. One form is a Medical survey for my wife's Aerobic class Clients, and was not built by my wife. The other form is from the BACPR (British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation)

I am at a loss as to why these forms fail to work

Any help would gratefully received.

My firewall log does not show an issue. I suspect widevine runs out of appdata. Is ther a way to move it to a standard location like programfiles?

Hi All, thanks for any help;

My issue is, I transfer a lot of long Word-97 generated text to various web-forums, which contain simple formatting (bold, italics, paragraph spacing, varied 'forum supported' fonts). When the text is copied, all the formatting is stripped in Firefox and only pasted as plain text.

Is there a way to copy and paste a document's text so the formatting is not removed?

p.s.: this is a browser issue, older browsers--like IE-11--copy the information fine (they have some paragraph vs. line issues (now, which is likely forum side), but otherwise work fine.)

Is there a way to paste text with formatting in firefox?

Thanks for your help!

Ever since the last two updates, whenever I am on Instagram (i have Win 10 PC version) and I click on a photo to see a larger version, I get this message:

                                         Sorry, this page isn't available.

The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Go back to Instagram.

It does not occur on the Instagram stories.

It only happens on Firefox not on Chrome. Chrome works fine.

Is there even a single website left on this planet left that does not have a deal with google or facebook? I mean im here at firefox support to push my privacy and while i do that im being tracked by google. Ironic right?! What even is the reason "mozilla org - non profit organisation" allowed google to install their trackers here, money? Source: https://pagexray.fouanalytics.com/q/support.mozilla.org

support.mozilla.org static-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net stats.g.doubleclick.net www.google-analytics.com www.googletagmanager.com location.services.mozilla.com

The last four urls appear to be trackers..

Dont get me wrong. Mozilla Firefox is great browser but some things dont seem well. What is the logic using a "privacy browser" that comes with google as search engine? That is privacy one the left hand and tracking on the right hand. Ofcourse it's very easy to change the search engine and you mozilla does this because of money, i get it... but still you get my point? Basically... google is tracking when, where, and whoever they can to collect, analyse and sell data of individual human beings. And basically... Mozilla takes that bloody money from google to create a privacy seach engine, ironic right?! Anyone got any toughts on this?

And honestly, while i have been using Firefox for years, i feel that firefox has changed alot and i am not sure if i can trust mozilla anymore. There are multiple reasons for that. 1 - The partnership with google (ok i get it, its the money) 2 - Telemetry active by default... 3 - Pushing pocket and sync... 4 - New cringe modern style that looks similar to bigtech like google or instagram. I man look at the firefox logo, what the hell happened? This doesn't even look like firefox anymore... Honestly! Look at it! The old Fox was amazing, now it just looks like garbage, and after all this is not just my opinion but it is the very truth.

Take a look at this: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/org.mozilla.firefox/latest/

                               https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/com.brave.browser/latest/

This i firefox VS brave in terms of privacy. brave appears to have zero trackers while firefox has 3... Those are only the mobile app/apk versions, i dont know if that also goes for the desktop installer, do you? If firefox desktop also has those trackers i would like to know how to block them.

Have there been any recent changes to Firefox that would affect the sound levels on YouTube videos? (I'm up to date with Firefox, using 94.01.) I use MacOs Catalina, version 10.15.7, on a MacMini 2014 model.

I'm playing YouTube videos that I've played before many times, but now I have to turn my volume up full tilt, where I used to keep it at 'medium.' This situation has NOT happened in Safari, which still gives me full volume on these YouTube videos, so it's not the fault of my sound system. There must be a glitch, perhaps with the latest Firefox update? This has only been happening since I updated a few days ago.

Thank you for any help with this! I prefer Firefox as a browser, and don't want to shift away from it.

Cheers, Jan
