NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!

I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on. But now it does the exact same thing I hate about chrome. It loads pages using cached css and javascript files. And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?

Since the latest versions of Firefox--say, the last month or so--Firefox continues to override and change my preferred file association for pdf files. I have gone in through the Windows 10 Start/Settings/Apps to change the file association for pdf files to my Adobe Acrobat Pro, but within a few hours Firefox automatically changes it back, system-wide, to Firefox. This is quite frustrating, to say the least. I have tried the Options within Firefox, and choose (as I do for most files) to "Ask Me First" upon opening, but don't find any further file association info there. Nevertheless, even when viewing my files within Windows Explorer (File Explorer), I cannot keep my chosen files association of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as it continually reverts to Firefox.

How can I disable this behavior of Firefox 80.0.1 that is overriding my preference? Or is it a bug that can be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance.... Enten

The main focus of my issue is that Firefox's sudden new behaviour of it opening normally when it launches, with my previous tabs remembered as I set is immediately followed by the browser quickly re-launching within seconds. While this isn't a big concern when I open Firefox from its shortcut, it's become a serious issue when I launch Firefox from an external URL, like from an email, or when viewing an original picture posted in a Discord chat channel.

When the relaunch happens, it's always without the tab that caused Firefox to launch automatically on clicking said external URL. I realize that I need to do an addon check, but that's a long process, so I was rather hoping this was a known issue that someone knows the solution to, or what addon is involved and how.

I tried to visit a website on a private network.

Firefox threw up a security warning about how the web page uses TLSv1.0.

I clicked on the "Enable TLS v1.0" button because I wanted to temporarily view the web page, so that I can look at the TLS certificate to debug an unrelated issue about the cert chain on this site.

Now I want to go back to the default settings, where Firefox blocks TLSv1.0.

How do I do that?

In about:config I looked at security.tls.version.min but it's still on the original value of 3. Yet Firefox is still letting me view that particular page over TLSv1.0 without the security warning.

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Running Windows 10, FF 80.0.1 64 bit. Windows reports the last update for FF was 9/1. Today is 9/17, so FF has been running for two weeks since the update before this problem showed up

I booted up this morning and FF and all extensions were working without problems. I then opened an html attachment from an email, which, was sent to FF to open. Instead of opening in a new tab in the already open FF window, I got a pop up saying that FF couldn't open because there was another instance running. I chose the button to close the already running instance, and the new instance launched with the html file. However all my extensions were summarily disabled and there is no option in the Manage Your Extensions window turn any of them back on. I am, as a result, using Chrome to ask this question, since that's the only way I can run my PW manager.

Anybody have any ideas how to fix this?

I have been in touch with BT and there engineer concluded that it is FireFox that is causing the problem!
