I am thoroughly fed up with FireFox and would like to have reasonable suggestions for an alternative. The main problem is that FF uses ever increasing resources the longer it runs even when there is no internet connection and I am not asking it to do anything. Between the various firefox invocations and HPPA_Main.exe, there comes to be very little resource for any desired activity. Then sometimes one of the firefox invocations grows endlessly (till I stop it or the system crashes), Then once with the installation of a new version (more and more new versions makes it impractical to keep up) the old profile was deleted (I watched the files disappear one by one) so I am always loosing things.

I am using MS Windows 7 and have 8 GB of ram but firefox will have allocated much more than that by the time it becomes unusable.

This is not so much a question but a cry for mercy... please, please, please... no more 'upgrades', no more 'improvements' that aren't. I've been using computers since 1979 (my first was a Tandy TRS80) but I'm now 74 and can't keep up. After the last couple of 'upgrades' Tbird and FF have become almost unusable. :-(

Firefox update to 80.0.1 will not register add-on to access Foscam FI9928P

The latest Firefox (80.0.1) doesn't recognize or allow installation of the add-on (amba_5.1.0.13_win--1548386245064.exe) to be able to view my security camera (Foscam FI9… (read more)

The latest Firefox (80.0.1) doesn't recognize or allow installation of the add-on (amba_5.1.0.13_win--1548386245064.exe) to be able to view my security camera (Foscam FI9928P). Prior to the update, I was able to access the camera just fine. Now I have to use Chrome or IE to be able to view camera web interface.

I am not sure what the Mozilla folks changed, but it really stinks to not be able to use FFox with my security cameras.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Is there a fix for this issue?

Firefox 80.0.1 keeps running in the background, eating up my dial-up speed. This happened after loading this latest version. When starting a new session, I let the pre-fetching stop, and then browse. This used to work well, but not anymore.

Before 80.0.1 came out, you folks had me eliminate some pre-fetching which worked well with earlier versions, but I can find nothing on-line about this new version and what is causing it. It starts periodically during a session, and then stops, and starts again, seemingly at random. With a dial-up, this is almost unusable. Any ideas?

Captcha Doesn't show up. I can't authenticate in sites and entire sites don't show up.

I'm an author/writer of cozy mystery/suspense/crime/thrillers and adventure short stories. I do a LOT of research and participate in online forums for background for my books and to build my brand. I have been using Mozilla Firefox for almost 20 years and I love it. But I may be forced to change because of the two serious problems I'm having. Explanations below:

  1. 1. There are certain regular sites I go to that require me to choose images to verify I'm not a robot or click on "I'm not a Robot" in reCaptcha. I can't because those images and/or the box for eCaptcha don't show up. They're just not there. I have to sign out and sign into Microsoft Edge which I absolutely hate. If I have to change, it will probably be Google Chrome.
  1. 2. Also, many of the sites I use regularly don't show up anymore. All I can see is text down the left side. None of the images are there and I can't tell where to click to go to different pages.

This has all been going on for months. I had hoped your updates would fix this, but they haven't. I don't want to change browsers, but I may have to because I MUST be able to verify my identity and be able to see some important sites I use regularly to post comments, etc.

I hope you can help me. I'm 85 and have absolutely no technological computer knowledge so please don't send me a lot codes because I would have no idea what to do with them. I pray this can be fixed.

I have a Dell PC and am using Windows 7, 32-bit.

Thank you, Gail S. Kibby White.
