I have been trying to solve this for days now.

My bookmarks keep duplicating out of control. I mean they will go from 500 to 10,000+ in a matter of minutes.

I did have sync running, but I have shut it down in case that was the problem, and it's not restarted now.

This problem is happening on 3 of my computers that were sync'ed. None of them have sync running now, yet they each still have the problem.

1) I deleted all duplicates by hand and then exported/backed up that version without duplicates (well call that the clean copy).

2) I have tried verifying the integrity of the bookmarks database through the troubleshooter. Each time the problem starts happening again after a few minutes. - I have done this on the current bookmarks - I have done this after I have deleted all bookmarks right before restoring, then again right after I restored the clean copy. - I have deleted all bookmarks, closed firefox, deleted the places file, then restored the clean copy.

3) I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox - I have done this then and restored the clean copy

4) I have created a new sync account and tried that, but that did not work either

When in safe mode, the bookmarks do not duplicate. But outside of safe mode they duplicate exponentially. I don't know what else to try.

Firefox uses much more memory than IE or Chrome, combined!

I'm on Win10 up-to-date. Firefox 65.0.1. Watching Task Mgr, I see FF load and consume 320MB+ (235MB+ in Safe Mode!). When I launch Chrome or IE (with similar add-ons), Chrome uses 195MB and IE is 65MB. This is ridiculous; I have always used FF; I even started back when Mozilla was known as Netscape!! But, I'm about to abandon FF and move to one of those other browsers. FF grows in its consumption of memory while I work until it's way over a gigabyte and it cripples my PC and I have to reboot. Sometimes, I close FF and try to restart it and I get a dialog box telling me it is still running. Again, this is ridiculous! This got substantially worse when this Quantum revision level began. It was never quite this bad before Quantum. I hate to see the day when I won't be able to use Firefox anymore but that day is coming soon!

Every time I print from Firefox, the page prints out in Landscape even though all the settings show it's set to print in Portrait. When I click "Print Preview" it shows a preview of the page in Portrait, the "Portrait" box is checked, scale is "Shrink to Fit". When I click on "Page Setup", the bubble next to "Portrait" is selected in the orientation section. Everything I can see seems to show that the page will print in Portrait, yet when it comes off the printer it's in Landscape. Every single time. This has been going on for at least six months, so it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the version of Firefox as Firefox has updated many times since this began (current version is 65.0.2).

The problem is limited to Firefox. Downloaded PDF's print in Portrait and if I copy/paste a page into Internet Explorer and print from IE, the page will print in Portrait. Which leads me to believe it's not an issue with my printer drivers.

I've tried all of the suggestions I found in the "Fixing printing problems in Firefox" article. Checked Firefox printer settings, reset Firefox print settings and reset all Firefox printer settings. After restarting Firefox, and my laptop, I'm still having the same problem. Firefox will only print in Landscape. Other than uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox, or going to another browser every time I need to print something, I don't know what else to do.

If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate the help! Thanks!

Hi,

Does anyone knows why the keyword field have been removed from the bookmark properties accessible with the blue star in the omnibar ?

I do find a lot of posts about the description field removal, but nothing about the keyword field.

Keywords are still working in firefox 65 but managing or assigning them became a real pain in the @%µ£.

Thanks for your infos.

About a month ago all of my login passwords disappeared and firefox isn't saving them anymore. I tried using the logins.jason with key3 or key4 files from the Old Firefox but it keeps renaming them corrupt.

It's been asking to save my passwords but it's not actually saving saving them and this is turning into a real; problem.

I posted about it then but I can't find it and besides what they said to do didn't work and someone said it was posted in the wrong place or something so I'm posting it again.

Thanks

As I tried to say in my question, I updated my FF and was immediately forced into setting up an account page? I didn't see the purpose be decided it must be something new I should do? (OK, my bad!) After doing through the agony of creating yet another account/password for something? I see, after the fact, that it has to do with syncing something? Some phase of FF.

I don't need or want such. How do I back out of this so I am not connected with some related account action or unknown in the future? Thank you.

Firefox looking for URLs when searching in address bar

Hello,

I recently switched over to Firefox from using Chrome.

The issue I'm having is that when I search in the address bar, if there is a '.' anywhere in the search terms, Firefox will try to look for a URL instead of just google searching like Chrome would.

In Chrome, if I type 'mongoose.js' into the address bar, it knows to search google instead of look for a URL.

In Firefox, if I type 'mongoose.js' into the address bar, it will search for a URL and give me a server not found page.

Things I've done: 1) Go to about:config and change 'browser.fixup.alternate.enabled' to false. 2) Go to about:config and made sure keyword.enabled is set to true.

I would really like to continue using Firefox instead of Chrome, but this is a convenience feature that is a necessity for me. I realize I can just add another search bar next to the address bar, but this should honestly just be a feature and I shouldn't have to add more clutter to my browser.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Suddenly I can no longer login into my bank account. Spoke with bank technical support. They were not even seeing my access. Website returns 'login incorrect' every time I attempt to login. Rebooted computer, and Firefox to no avail. Tried login with Internet Explorer and had no trouble accessing account. Must be an incompatibility with Firefox all of a sudden. Ideas???

Firefox (65.0.1) on my Mac (Mojave 10.12.2) started displaying everything in Dutch. No matter what I do, I can't get it to switch back to English.

I'm currently in the US (San Francisco), but even if I visit salesforce.com here, even the website defaults to Dutch.

So both the interface (menus etc) of Firefox itself, as well as the content displayed default to Dutch.

See attachment: preferences page is in Dutch, as are the menus at the top, and the tab with SalesForce. Despite that the settings are to show US english.

I have searched for an answer and all the results come back with "Smooth Scroll" inside Firefox. My problem is with my website. I have windows 10 and when I go to my website using FF, smooth-scroll.js doesn't work where it actually jumps to the anchor tag on the page rather than scroll smoothly. I have tested on several other computers I have in my workshop using vista, Windows 7, Linux and Apple and all scroll smoothly. I have asked several counterparts to have a look as well and they have said it scrolls perfect. My site scrolls smoothly using IE, Edge, Opera, Chrome and Safari and all work perfect. I tried debugging, I have disable and re-enabled hardware acceleration I have tried uninstalling FF and reinstalling with no luck. And I have Windows 10 fully updated.

Sorry for the long explanation but my question is, "Has anyone come across this issue using FF on Windows 10"? I know it's not an FF issue as it works on all other types of computers but perhaps there is a setting I have missed. I love FF and have used it since 2004 but this is driving me mad.

Please check my website here. https://www.denlyncomputers.com.au

All responses will be appreciated.

Cheers.

There is no problem when I try same in other web browsers.
