Hi! Recently, in my laptop, Firefox started freezing at every single startup; after force shutdown and restart, though, it works flawlessly each time, and for the whole duration of the session at the computer. Can anyone please suggest a solution?

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction.

I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the browser, removing all of my bookmarks (about 10,000) and addressing extensions (Decentraleyes, Default Bookmark Folder, Disable Tab Detach, Flagfox, I don't care about cookies, Keepa, Notifier for Gmail, Privacy Badger, To Google Translate, uBlock Origin, Undo Close Tab, Video DownloadHelper and Youtube's Annotations No More), but not even safe mode improved the situation in the least. Windows Defender also hasn't detected any malware and my web surfing habits are as safe as it gets.

The only deeper data I could gather is that the problem manifests with a progressive, rapid surge in CPU and RAM usage; the former, for example, is saturated to its total 16 GB in a matter of about 20 seconds.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7586 with Windows 11 64 bit; Firefox version is the latest, 100.0, and, by the way, none of the recent updates has improved the situation.

Thanks to anyone who might come up with an educated guess!

I currently have this add-on installed. It allows you to you highlight certain text, then right click and open up a link to Wiktionary in another tab. Up until a few minutes ago, this menu item was at the very top of the list (i.e. above "undo" and all the rest), but now it's been moved down with all the other add-ons. Image for further clarity.

The add-on hasn't been updated in 6 years, so it's certainly not that. I don't recall doing anything to make it change, but before this, it had been at the top of the menu ever since I added it maybe 2 years ago. Is there any potential way to restore this functionality? The fact that it appeared at the very top of the menu might have been a bug, but if that's the case, it was certainly a convenient one.

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to hearing from you fine folks in this community.

My Windows 10 system uses a powered amplifier to provide audio. As long as I have had this computer, the same volume level has worked for music through Itunes, satellite radio and all videos that come through Firefox. For example, 10 is the normal setting. Recently, somehow the audio must be turned up to about 30 on all videos that come through Firefox from whatever source site. The 10 setting stills works for all other audio sources. I don't know how this happened, rebooting, turning system off, etc doesn't have any impact. Is there some setting that either has changed or can be changed to restore the same volume levels for all input sources? Thanks.

Hello. With version 100.0 came multi-language spellchecking. I would like to know how exactly does it work, please.

For instance, if I enable both English and French, will it simply virtually add the two dictionaries and use the resulting combined list of words? Or will it try to understand if a paragraph or sentence is English and mark non-English words in that paragraph/sentence as incorrect even if they are French?

I am obviously asking this because there is no detailed information at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker.

It appears that this question has been asked many, many, many times and yet a clear, concise answer hasn't been provided. How do I change my updates from the beat release channel to standard updates? There should be a simple procedure to do this without a lot of unnecessary information in the answer and ultimately no answer to the question.

I have completely separate bookmarks and bookmark toolbars on my work PC and home PC. I do log in on my home PC as to not lose my personal bookmarks and passwords. I accidentally logged into Firefox at work and it merged my bookmarks from my home PC. I logged out of Firefox on the work PC and removed the bookmarks that were imported from my home PC profile. I then tried to make a new account with my work email and login to sync on my work PC but it always says primary email needed and I'm stuck. I did go to about:profiles and add a work profile but that doesn't help me. I need to make a Firefox profile on my work PC with my work email address but the primary email thing gets me. Is there a way to do this with my current work PC bookmarks not lost? Thanks

I've had my Firefox bookmarks configured just the way I wanted them for years, many years on my desktop. I finally caved in and thought it'd be nice to replicate those bookmarks over to my laptop since I've been spending more time on that lately. I had a FF Sync account logged in on my desktop machine for a few years syncronizing to nothing. I've been been hesitated adding in another Sync member in case something went wrong....and it so did:

1. Once the laptop was logged into Sync, everything seemed pulled over just fine. However, the laptop bookmark toolbar was showing my Chrome bookmark toolbar items. Those are different for personal reasons (not relevant to this - but very important). I thought, "Oh well, that sucked, best I manually copy back my bookmark toolbar on the laptop and forget Sync." 2. However, I then noticed on my desktop that my original Desktop toolbar bookmarks now also resemble my Chrome bookmark toolbars. 3. So, somehow Sync'ing two FIREFOX browsers synced them with CHROME. That's not what's supposed to happen...is it? I wanted two instances of Firefox to replicate to each other...Didn't want Chrome involved. 4. Looking through the Sync properties, there are all these FF Sync options to choose from but I can't be sure what they do, and have lost faith in trying or wanting to at this point.

  • What I'd like to do is go back in time to a time before I initiated the Sync connection and get my *desktop* back to where it was before all this went wrong:

1. I am versed in managing Windows profiles, manually replacing Firefox profiles between computers (from the days before Sync existed) so, if that's an option, please provide the FF profile location in Win x64 and how to juggle and which of the profiles to juggle to take my desktop back in time to the way it was before I launched Sync with my laptop.

2. If there's a "Holy shit I screwed something up and need to undo all this mess" type of panic button/Hail Mary Pass option then please let me know.

If you need any additional information from me, let me know but I otherwise hope I've been descriptive enough as to what I'm struggling with.

Thanks, Ted
