I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Hi All,

I have successfully deployed and configured Firefox to my company through Intune however I was wondering if it is possible to alter the installed Desktop/Start Menu icons to a custom .ico so the end users don't associate it with a browser but thier web based application.

In Intune I can only change the deployed Company Portal app icon but cannot alter the default Desktop/Start Menu icon. I know I can do this manually for the Desktop Icon but for 1200+ users this is not fees able to do manually

thanks

Items in my Bookmarks toolbar (and the overflow bookmarks list) keep rearranging themselves. I put them back in order, then every time I open Firefox, they rearrange again. I've read through and tried everything suggested in the discussions and articles except the refresh, with I'd prefer not to do if it's not absolutely necessary. Nothing else suggested has worked. Any help will be appreciated. I believe this started after the last Firefox update. This is getting frustrating to the point I'm ready to stop using Firefox altogether. Thank you!

Hello,

This is my version of a Firefox usability review for 2021.

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro, on new hardware, and run identical add-ons and extensions in both Firefox and Chrome most recent versions (auto-update).

For the last few years about 10% of all websites I visit weekly have some kind of functionality that does not work in Firefox, but does work in Chrome. This forces users (at least me) in to the arms of another browser, because Chrome *always* works.

Today, I couldn't lookup a license key on Kaspersky's website due to a 'Cross-Origin Request Blocked:' error. Result was; key not found. Switching to Chrome, I had my key in seconds. This kind of problem happens A LOT.

I get frustrated because either the security level of Firefox is insanely high and unforgiving, or Chrome is completely unsafe. But we know that's not true either. Why am I safe in Chrome, but not in Firefox when viewing the exact same web pages? My anti-virus isn't enough?

As websites lean more and more heavily on scripts, Firefox becomes more and more unusable for me.

To be clear, I am a network admin who has been experiencing these security SNAFU's in Firefox that require switching to Chrome in order to compete registration, fill out some forms, or access some kind of AJAX type info or CDN files, that is extremely frustrating when you don't want to use Google's spy tool, Chrome.

I DO appreciate the Firefox browser, and its developers. This is just an FYI - no reply needed.

Just added New Tab Version 1 to Firefox version 72.0.2 with DuckDuckGo as Search Engine and default page.

When I call for a new tab I get the message - "Access to the File Was Denied" and "The file at moz-extension://7b4a03b3-0438-454e-bf65-9629bce7ae58/newtab.html is not readable."

However, if I then click on the Firefox Home Page Icon (little house icon) I get straight to the Home Page with the search function available.

Anyone know why I get this interim error message, or why I don't get transferred straight to the Home Page?

After one of the last FF updates, I noticed that I no longer needed to enter my Primary (Master) password to sync or access my logins or site passwords. After a bit of checking, I found that in FF/Tools/Options/Privacy & Security... My "Use Primary Password" box was unchecked! Was I hacked? I use full-time Malwarebytes (licensed) along with Win10 Security (which are suppose to play nice together; and have for years). I never received any indication of an issue from either app. Multiple (full) scans came back clean.

Or was this an inadvertent change caused by one of the later FF updates?

Btw, I use the same W10 and FF on several other machines, with virtually the same setup; none of which experienced this issue.

Hi Everyone

I'm using the latest FF 87.0 64bit in Win 10 Home. I launched FF to a blank tab only, and see the following messages in the console listed below, too advance for me to understand. Also when I add uBlock Origin, it blocks the telemetry data, see the errors below also. Even if I allow access to uBlock, it'll still block telemetry data. For the sake of security, I've changed my browser signature info to 1234 in all the strings below.

What do they mean? Do I need to reset my FF?

THANKS!
