Recently, emails from Nextdoor dot come stopped arriving at my Hotmail account. At about the same time, a Google Group was trying to send me an invitation. The moderators received an error message saying a setting was blocking it each time they tried.

It seems as though there are hundreds of webpages of settings between the three sites (Hotmail, Google Groups, Firefox). I've checked everywhere I can find, but if there is a particular page or setting to fix this, I cannot find it or recognize it.

Hotmail wants to examine my email settings, but I am uncomfortable allowing anyone access, and I don't think the problem is there. Google Groups tried its best but had only the one suggestion that did not help. I'm left with Firefox. I have changed some settings over time, but I don't remember them all, and nothing stands out when I look for a solution.

My Firefox browser is the most recent version, 84.0.2.

Any help you can suggest will be sincerely appreciated. Diana Penhaven

OS: Windows 10 (Japanese) (updated) Firefox version 84.02 (64-bit) (updated) Drivers (updated)

I got an email from a reputed PDF OCR software and scanner company as usual for winter sale. I decided to buy the software and click the BUY link in the email. On the website I entered required information and when clicked the process button unexpectedly on the next page I was supposed to fill in my Credit card password which was strange and I left the website before leaving did left the chat message "why do you need password".

After a while I checked the Firefox browser's history and surprisingly there wasn't any history of that website. So, question is when I was not using Private browsing then why there wasn't web history? Do you think it is technically possible?

Any guidance will be appreciated. Thank you.

Twice now I have had a master password prompt come up suddenly for an unknown reason. I did not enter my password as I did not trust it. Is there a way to detect why this is happening?

The first time it happened after I had been reading a page for about 10 minutes. I had two other tabs open for the same site and no other non-suspended tabs. I did not have an account on that site.

The second time happened while watching a video on a different site, about 40 minutes in. No other tabs were active. I did have an account for that site, but I was already logged in via cookies.

In both cases I was just reading/watching; there seems to be no user action that triggered it. This makes me think it is not caused by a login request for a site, but by a (malicious) extension or some background process in Firefox.

I do not use Firefox Sync, nor am I signed into a Firefox account.

Several weeks ago I tried the access eBay and got the following error message:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsearch/?" on this server. Reference #18.f924c17.1608206592.152fe04c

Ever since then I receive the same error message when I try to load eBay. I talked to someone at eBay and they suggested it was related to interference by a VPN program.

Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi I've got some top sites pinned to my homepage, but for some reason a decent amount of the icons won't appear, even if I change the custom image url that they're linking to. Is there any way to fix this, I'm a very visual person so having icons makes it much easier to browse

(BTW I've experimented waiting hours for them to show up, no dice)

Firefox browser restore previous session after crash

Hi, I'm trying to disable the "restore previous session including tabs" after crash feature.

I've disabled the "Restore previous session" check from the general configuration panel.

I've changed the following values from the about:config panel: browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes = 0 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash = false

However after a restart or shutdown, Firefox still shows up the tabs from the previous session.

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 OS.

Could someone please help me with this?

Perhaps this feature is useful for some people, but for me it's extremely annoying; plus I really like Firefox and don't wanna change browsers.

Thanks!

I have two laptops..both W10 64 bit both Firefox version 84.0.2. On works fine the other just will not complete the loading of Farmville-Two on Zynga . I have tried to go page by page and make sure the two laptops have identical settings and they do as best as I can find. By any chance does anyone have any suggestions I can try. I have done all the suggestions From Zynga..cleared cache, deleted web content, rebooted, reinstsalled their Launcher+ program so you dont need Flash and flash is disabled, I did virus and Malwarebytes scans, even did a sfc/ scannnow, I changed the Firefox settings to allow pop ups and set to privacy to standard. It starts to load but the page stops and locks up and I am left with a white window on the left where the farm should load ...the laptop to a point sometimes I have to reboot to close the window. It used to work just fine. I know my way around a bit but not an expert..just cant play on one of the laptops..frustrating. It started about a week ago. All other programs seem to work ok. Appreciate any help..Thank you.

Hi, on my MAC M1 (ARM Processor) I have firefox installed. The browser freezes every time I put the computer into sleep mode or when I use the lock screen or simply when I restart the system. Once I have re-logged in to my MAC, the firefox window reopens but all the tabs are locked. So, the only solution is to close the window and reopen a new window. How can I fix it? Thanks

Main Monitor: BenQ XL2411Z 1920x1080 144hz Second monitor> AOC 1920x1060 60hz

Having youtube and twitch playback the youtube video flickers alot. Webrender is enabled.

I have had this issue for a couple of months.

Setting the 144hz monitor to 120hz the bug stops and youtube works flawlessly.

GPU: Used 1060 gtx 6gb and 970 gtx 4gb, nvidia driver version: 460.89

Can't record/take a screenshot of the problem. It is an webrender bug.

# Ubuntu garbage data increases exponentially
## Intro and context

Hello. I am a power user that works in software and web development. I have been using Firefox on and on for most my life, but full time as my main browser since late 2018. One thing I love Firefox for is its lightness on memory compared to that of Google Chrome, and also its open web standards, open source, privacy, ethical owners, and customizations. I have been using Windows 10 up until July 9th 2020 before I switched to my first main Linux desktop. I have always kept my eye on CPU and RAM usage, as high CPU drains battery and running out of RAM results in a system crash. I actively keep many tabs open (less than 100 but more than 60) I ensure that they are light. I mostly have GitHub tabs open, but I keep a few other things open as well, mostly Wikipedia/wiktionary and duckduckgo tabs, a pcloud (file service) tab, but sometimes a youtube tab or two (rarely a reddit tab)

## Issue

I have been noting that garbage collection is getting exponentially worse over time. When I got my laptop, I was able to keep 2-3 fully packed profiles open at all times, and never having to close Firefox until shutdown (after about 12-16 hours uptime) I rely heavily on Firefox profiles for organization. It has been getting exponentially worse. Starting in late 2020, I had to reduce the max number of open profiles to 2, and in 2021. In early January, I had to start closing the profiles once a day to free up 2-3+ GiB of RAM (swap doesn't change much, that is the garbage data that isn't being cleared, it normally ends up at 800 MiB to 1.7 GiB by the end of the day) and now (as of January 22nd 2021) I have to close Firefox 2-3 times a day to prevent my system from getting overloaded, as Firefox eats through 1-2 gigabytes of RAM per hour, even when idle. I have noticed several processes titled `web content` that use 200-600 MiB each (there is usually 2-7 of them) I am wondering what I can do for Firefox to prevent high RAM usage. For reference, here is my main profile in idle mode:

Mozilla is refusing to let me upload images right now, so I will link them

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

And here it is with Firefox and Nautilus closed (I forgot about nautilus before getting the first 2 pics, it uses a lot of memory depending on its usage):

I have lately suspected that GitHub may have gotten heavier, or is sending too much data via AJAX methods, but I am not entirely sure.

    1. System specs

Device: `Dell XPS 13 9XXX`

Operating system: `Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)`

Linux Kernel version: `5.4.0-48-generic`

Processor type: `Intel Core i5 10th generation`

Processor specs: `Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz × 8`

Processor mode: `x64`

Desktop environment: `GNOME 3.36.1`

Windowing system: `X Desktop environment 11`

Memory: `7.4 GiB (8 GB)`

SWAP file: `2.0 GiB`

Firefox version: `84.0.1` - I haven't updated in a while due to fear of memory increase and instability

Number of Firefox profiles: `61` - no new profiles created since December 26th 2020

I am wondering what I should do about this. I work with hundreds of projects, so I can't close too many tabs, as it becomes hard to access and manage. I intend to close 16 tabs in the next month, as I am freeing up some projects.

Greetings, I am trying to fill out a PDF form using Firefox's built in PDF viewer and form editor. I'm running Linux (Ubuntu) with Firefox 84. I am able to successfully view and "Open" the PDF within the browser, and even edit the text properly. However, upon saving or printing, the text gets rendered with a massive font size nullifying the ability to edit in browser. I've been trying to find some online resources without success, and can't seem to find others reporting a similar case.

I've disabled all extensions and restarted Firefox, but did not notice any change in behavior. Any tips for debugging? Attached are two pics of the PDF form while editing, and then the rendered PDF after saving.

I usually watch YouTube video's at 1.25x speed, and I noticed recently that it seem to make some audio distorted. So far I've only noticed it on lower notes, but it causes to sound a bit distorted and warbled.

I noticed it on this video: https://youtu.be/IubSudelVmw?t=429 at the tagged time, and also on a channel called The 8-bit Guy on his intro theme. https://youtu.be/d3NIe1jTZMc

Again, this is all at 1.25x speed (or faster), and this only seems to happen in firefox. I made sure to check and see if it was my speakers, which it isn't because I can also hear the distortion through headphones.

I'm not sure there's much to be done to correct the issue, but I thought I'd post about this in hopes it might get checked in a future update.
