So let me give some details, I am running Firefox 71.0 (64-bit) on my Mac and Windows10 PC ... however the Windows OS is running on BootCamp off the Mac. The Mac App of Firefox seems to give a much more pleasant experience playing flash games like Alpha Penguin but the Windows Program is extremely laggy. Is there any reason why? Both OSes are using the same hardware to it's max capabilities.

I'd also like to mention that I have an older version of Firefox on my daily solo Windows 8.1 machine and it's lower specked and Flash games like Alpha Penguin play pretty well(there are some lag areas but not as much as my BootCamp situation) but when using a newer version of Firefox on that Win8.1 machine Flash seems to be as equally as bad as the BootCamp Windows10.

Then I have a Windows10 gaming laptop and Flash sometimes struggle there.

All computers have Chrome and play flash equally "okay".

Why am I having such an issue with Firefox, so many different results? Is there something I can do for my BootCamp Windows10's Firefox to play as smooth as Firefox on the MacOS side??

I received an authorization code sent to my email address when I was trying to log into my Firefox thing on my browser ( windows 10 ) I copy pasted the authorization number and it did not work, it rejected the authorization number as "wrong authorization info" - I tried again by pressing resend code and i entered the code myself manually one letter/digit at a time ensuring capital letters were capital and making sure it matched exactly what I received in the email as my auth code, it rejected it again and said it was incorrect

i’ve tried this three different times now and every time the auth code is sent to my email immediately but it is rejected when I enter it on the browser after logging in

when I put in my email address/password it allows it and then goes to the authorization page where it asks me to get the authorization code sent to my email and enter it there when I hit send I get the email and as soon as I receive the email I enter the authorization code and it is not accepted I do not understand for the life of me how I am getting a message telling me the authorization code is incorrect when I am 110% positive is accurate

there is no way what Im entering is inaccurate, I even tried copy pasting, and making sure there were no extra spaces before and after the auth code before I pasted it into the webpage please help

In the old Outlook Express, I could set up folders to sort bookmarks. The instructions in support do not appear to be correct. How do I add folders to the Bookmarks and then move bookmarks into the folders so that I can more easily find the one I am looking for? The bookmarks are not even sorted alphabetically, which would be helpful if folders cannot be set up. Again, in the old Outlook Express, I could move bookmarks in the list so that I could alphabetize them, even within folders. Can someone please let me know how to do this in Thunderbird?

I keep getting a red web page on firefox screaming a siren at me , flashing with writing saying "critical error"

It happens totally random and doesn't seem specific to a particular web page (and no its not while hunting down porn).

i have to run task manager, end firefox, uninstall firefox and remove every piece of firefox from my machine, run malware, remove said maleware, reboot machine, reinstall firefox.. and ""if" i am lucky and firefox doesn't open in the pages it shut down in (which considering firefox should of completely been removed from my system -- that just totally baffles me when it does reopen like that) i can continue to surf until it happens again.

the below is the only info i can get from the adware when i remove it...

Adware.Elex.ShrtCln, C:\USERS\***********\APPDATA\LOCAL\GOOGLE\CHROME\USER DATA\DEFAULT\Web Data, No Action By User, [2304], [454693],1.0.3237


I know it says chrome in it .. but there is no issues with chrome (and yes i put the *** in it) and i do not have chrome open at the time.

It happens every so often and as i said doesn't seem to be specific to any particular search or web page , it just seems to happen.

Firefox was working yesterday, however this morning when I went to launch it, it never loaded. Opened up task manager it pops open for a moment then instantly closes I have tried uninstalling it both by using windows 10 uninstall function and did a reinstall same issue. I have tried uninstalling by manually deleting both folders in program files (normal and x86). reinstall same issue. I cant run Profile Manager because it does the same thing. I went to my firewall settings there are multiple instances of Firefox ,not really sure what to do, two just say "Firefox" (no quotes) the other says Firefox "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox". Any help with this issue would be appreciated.
