Hi Firefox start to take a lot of CPU depending on how many tabs are opened (that is normal of course especially if with flash contents). What is not normal is that CPU will not be released when tabs are being closed, even with one (blank) tab left opened CPU usage is 40%-85% (depending if other process need CPU). Essentially: once Firefox process obtained 80% of CPU you can close tabs but you are fucked the same, now opening new tabs is a pain! Of course restart fix the issue. Is not a matter of addons or updates, Firefox and system (Windows 10) are updated to last version; I feel is something related with flash contents. Is it possible only me experience this?! Regards

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

Hi, I created a new profile because of crashes. I have Firefox version 81.0.1 (64-bit). I have Ramdisk but I cannot edit anymore the cache location in browser.cache.disk.parent_directory. I can only toggle true-false but can't add the ramdisk location. Aren't we allowed anymore to use a ramdisk for cache?

Hi, I faced the problem with Youtube recommendations on a video page. When I watch a video I can't see recommendations, comments and video title (see the image). In console i get an error: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/id. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed).

I am on arch linux system.

I've tried to: 1. Update all ca-certificate* packages 2. Disable and delete ad-block 3. Use another browser (there is no problem, only in firefox)

This problem is only actual on Youtube for me.

I use Firefox v81.0.1 running on x64 Windows 10 Pro. It appears the old fieldset printing bug has shown up again. I've put together a sample page to show the problem, must be loaded in computer browser to show both columns. I will try to attach it.

Once the page is loaded you should see 2 columns (fieldsets) side by side. Now do a print preview, adjust margins so both columns show in the preview. Go to page 2 and you will see the last few rows of Column 2 are not seen. Go to the last page and you will see the missing Column 2 rows under Column 1. I tested this page in current versions of IE11, MS Edge and Comodo Dragon. Only Firefox fails to print correctly. Both CSS and HTML have been validated with no errors.

The upload seems to only allow images. How do I upload a html file?

Sry the message is German but I will translate it hopefully similar to the English output. I try to open this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCcjRePrSj4 Mind you other seem to work fine and I get this issue:

"Dein Browser erkennt zurzeit keines der verfügbaren Videoformate. Klicke hier, um unsere häufig gestellten Fragen zu HTML5-Videos aufzurufen."

Basically says "Your Browser does not recognize any available videoformat Click here, for FAQ around HTML5-Videos"

links to https://www.youtube.com/supported_browsers which literally shows Firefox as supported. I run Firefox on Ubuntu20.04 here and I have no clue what the issue could be. Chromium works. It works on Windows. I tried the safe mode without success. I just want to fix this before I run into this more frequently.

I am utterly clueless. I just today installed Firefox again on my Ubuntu machine. All issues I could find so far seem to be at least 2 years or older...

I had Bing as my homepage and search engine, and that has always worked fine, for many years. But after a recent Firefox update, the browser will no longer allow Bing as my homepage and search engine, and because I had set the browser exclusively for Bing, I can't access another search engine. I liked the Bing homepage because it had a new photo every day, and most of those photos were downloadable to use as wallpapers. Looks like I may go back to Internet Explorer [I don't like Edge]. Why won't Firefox allow Bing now? - it's not a security risk.

IMHO, the Hamburger menu should be the duplicate of the Menu bar. That way one could gain vertical display space by hiding the Menu bar. After all, the some of the Menu bar options are already duplicated, but not the ones I could use. Why not go all the way and let users gain the extra display space?

The mobile bookmarks folder is nowhere to be found on the desktop app. When I bookmark a page on mobile, Firefox desktop doesn't show it in the "all bookmarks" menu, I tried searching but it doesn't find it. The mobile app doesn't show it either, it only shows the "desktop bookmarks" folder and the single pages that I have bookmarked on mobile. I have attached some screenshots that better explain this issue. I would be grateful if someone could help me.

Hello,

Unfortunately, my mate used CCleaner to clear my PC and didn't unchecked "delete history" from Mozilla... So I have lost everything, cache, history, etc. We use the "light" cleaning, not the "secured" one.

I thought that I may be able to restore it with Mozilla Sync but I didn't find anything else than my bookmarks and the tabs on my other device...

I even tried to restore some of my old backup-restore files with Recuva but I was not able to do so.

Am I screwed or is there an option?

Thanks for your help!

I have noticed a new folder has appeared on my desktop - out of the blue - labelled "STG-backups-FF-81.0.1" If I delete it, it is simply replaced by another one at some point, later on. I assume this folder is created by Firefox and the back-up file information is saved in it automatically. Surely the folder should be in a different location? Has anyone any ideas on where this is supposed to be, and how to get Firefox to revert to saving the files in it in the correct place?
