The latest update added a new warning to the "Forget About This Site" feature. I use this sometimes, and when I saw this warning for the first time yesterday, I knew it was going to be a pain in the arse. I understand it's useful to some people, but I do not want to see it every time. How do I disable this warning?

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

Firefox keeps redirecting my localhost web page to another internet domain

I am a web developer who often writes websites on my own local computer. I use Apache web server, and using both the httpd.conf file and Windows' "hosts" file ( C:\Windows\System32\etc\hosts ) I can make an alias for 127.0.0.1, otherwise known as localhost. Because my name is greg, I can add a server name to my localhost, like http://greg/test.html.

This works pretty well, but sometimes when I add a new alias, like greg or gregory, Firefox doesn't pick up on it right away. I can go to http://greg/test.html in Chrome, and it goes to the local web page just fine. But if I try it in Firefox, it tries to redirect me to "http://www.greg.com". The usual fix is to go into Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content, then press CLEAR.

But this doesn't always work, and it seems like no matter what I clear, Firefox insists on not looking up my local server alias, but instead redirects me to https://www.greg.com.

How do I force Firefox to look for http://greg/ only on my local server?

I am using a Cambio W101 tablet with windows 10 21H1 and Firefox 93.0.

After getting the BSOD with the error message DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE I followed the recommended suggestions like checking the drivers, removing the sleep mode, changing the power options.

I continue to get the BSOD only in one specific situation but frequently. It is when I use Libreoffice as my active window, while Firefox is inactive in the background. When I use either only Libreoffice or only Firefox as my active window nothing happens. There has also not been problems with other programs.

Does an inactive Firefox do something which triggers the BSOD?

[PL]: Zwracam się do Państwa z uprzejmą prośbą i pytaniem: jak przywrócić sesję w Mozilli Firefox bez odświeżania przywracanych kart? Podczas użytkowania, Mozilla Firefox niespodziewanie się zamknęła. Pojawiła się możliwość przywrócenia sesji (co zostało zaprezentowane na dołączonym zrzucie ekranu). Zależy mi, by po wciśnięciu przycisku ,,Przywróć sesję", wszystkie przywrócone karty otworzyły się bez odświeżania, czyli innymi słowy, by otwarte w tych kartach strony internetowe nie zostały odświeżone. Niektóre strony internetowe po odświeżeniu nie będą już aktywne bądź nie będą już posiadały informacji, które są mi niezbędne do dalszej pracy, dlatego zależy mi, by odzyskać je w takim stanie, w jakim były one przed nieoczekiwanym zamknięciem Mozilli Firefox, gdyż jest to sytuacja, która nie wynika z mojej winy tylko z zaistniałej awarii Mozilli Firefox. Proszę o odpowiedź, co należy zrobić (np. co zmienić w ustawieniach przeglądarki Mozilla Firefox lub gdziekolwiek indziej), by przywracając sesję, karty nie zostały odświeżone. Jeśli znają Państwo jakieś inne sposoby, by karty w przeglądarce nie zostały odświeżone (związane np. z przywracaniem systemu do punktu przywracania bądź z połączeniem internetowym), to proszę o wskazówki, ponieważ nieoczekiwane zamknięcie Mozilli Firefox spowodowało mi ogromne kłopoty. Z góry serdecznie dziękuję za pilną pomoc, ponieważ jest mi ona potrzebna jak najszybciej z uwagi na moje obowiązki.

There is an option to restore the session (as shown in the attached screenshot).

After refreshing, some websites will no longer be active or will no longer have information that is necessary for my further work, so I want to recover them in the state they were in before the unexpected shutdown of Mozilla Firefox, because this is a situation that is not my fault but the failure of Mozilla Firefox. Please. o answer what needs to be done (e.g. what to change in the settings of Mozilla Firefox or elsewhere) so that the tabs are not refreshed when restoring the session. system to a restore point or with an internet connection), I am asking for tips, because Mozilla Firefox unexpectedly shutdown I was in great trouble. Thank you very much in advance for your urgent help, because I need it as soon as possible due to my responsibilities.

Hello,

i have a problem with Firefox ESR and the management Webinterface of a telefon system (Auerswald COMpact5200R). The Website works with Edge, Chrome, IE and normal Firefox Releases - but not with the ESR Releases for example 91.2.0esr or 91.1.0esr.

When i open the website it asks for credentials. Then there is a button (think its a new frame), if i click this, it ask again for credentials (if you want to get admin rights). Normal users doesnt have these rights, so they cancel the dialog and get their configuration functions.

If i do this with Firefox ESR - the second popop for credentials show up - and if i cancel it, the frame/website doesnt load further.

I tried different settings for SameSite cookies or network.auth.allow-subresource-auth but (same settings than in normal Firefox releases) it doenst work. Sorry, but i cannot provide a public link for testing to the website, because its an internal management Interface.

What can i check next to get it work again?

Regards, Michael

- Restarting my laptop - Clearing the cache and cookies - Disabling hardware acceleration - Disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection - Running in Troubleshoot mode - Refreshing FF - Reinstalling FF (Currently running 93.0, 64bit)
