I'll try to keep this concise as I am completely out of ideas to resolve this. I have been using Firefox without issue on my PC with Firefox sync. I have installed Firefox on my new Mac(2020 model, 32GB RAM, i7) and the performance within the browser is abysmal. Below I've tried my best to explain the symptoms. Pages are extremely slow to load(can take over 20 seconds) while I'm waiting for the page to load it stays on a blank page like about:blank for the entire time and then all of the sudden loads the page. sometimes it says "transferring data from [URL]".

Active add-ons

  • Bitwarden
  • BlockTube
  • Clickbait Remover for YouTube
  • Grammarly
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • RES
  • SponsorBlock
  • uBlock Origin
  • Ultrawidify

Troubleshooting steps

  • Disabled all add-ons. This seems to somewhat resolve the issue.
  • Disabled all add-ons except uBlock Origin. The issue is there
  • Disabled just uBlock Origin. The issue is there
  • Refresh Firefox. Issue comes back once I sync my account(bring back settings and add ons)
  • Installed Firefox Nightly. Issue comes back once I sync my account
  • Created new profile, added only 3 add-ons(uBlock, Bitwarden, SponsorBlock), did not sync. Issue comes back after a little while of using the browser.

At this point the only way it seems I'm able to use Firefox without issue is to have no extensions. For me, this isn't a viable option. I'd love any and all advice as i am out.

Thanks!

Okay so last year I built myself a new desktop PC around August 2020. I was using an Android smartphone prior to that and had some bookmarks on it I wanted to transfer to the desktop. I mistakenly thought it would simply 'absorb' those Android bookmarks into the bookmark collection I already had on this new desktop, but after using sync, it straight up removed the desktop bookmarks that were there and replaced them with the android ones exclusively. Another neat little 'feature' is how the bookmarks were also completely erased from the Android device after this.

So once that happened, I restored my old desktop bookmarks, but then the bookmarks that were imported from the Sync from the android were now gone. My question is this: are those sync'd android bookmarks actually anywhere at all, like did Firefox automatically archive them somewhere just in case, or are they just lost completely? Thanks.

Problem: the mouse can't drag up and down scrollbars of a specific website This website is not an ordinary website, but a small pop-up window for temporary preview inside the website. It may be a website in a specific environment simulating the mobile terminal. However, other browsers, such as Google and 360 browser, do not have this problem. Please ask the official to solve it. Thank you.

So, i have the following interesting problem. I have a new laptop, brand and model mentioned above. Which is part of a domain in a small company. Other devices in the same domain don't have any issues and they use the same software on them, so i doubt it is a software based problem.

Now to the juicy bits: 1. Firefox 32Bit works fine. Absolutely fine. Was pre-installed by Fujitsu and then removed by me. 2. Installed the 64Bit Firefox 88.0.1, same version that was just uninstalled. 3. Firefox starts rather slow, does not open any websites, struggles to open the top menu bar, does not open settings at all. 4. Doesn't matter if i used a profile from my previous machine, or a fresh profile created on install or through the profile manager of Firefox.

Even manually deleted the whole Mozilla folder from %appdata% to see if any lingering data was the cause. Still, only the 32Bit version wants to work properly.

Any advice on how to troubleshoot the cause?

Hi, i have a strange loading behavior of some websites, that i created.

As an example, this URL: (it's an German website) https://mc-2021.hanno-fair-impuls.de/impuls-08-06-jahresevent-harzer-marketing-treff-marketing-speaker-abend.html

The page loads sometimes immediately and sometimes in doesn't until i hit refresh. And after i hit refresh it loads direct. Sometimes if the page is loaded, some resources like CSS files are not loaded completely , so the page looks broken, because of those missing CSS files. I cannot really describe the problem, it seems like the page is stuck in some situations and sometimes not.

In Chrome this behavior never happens and the URL opens direct. (I tested this very often in Chrome) Also there is no server problems like to much connections or load problems of the server.

Hopefully you can help me or point me to the right direction to find the reason of this problem.

Thank you.

Greetings Jay

Use the current FF version 88.0.1 - Question about the bookmarks toolbar:

After the FF repair are the icons largely anonymized? They work fine - I'm just missing the typical website icon. For example the four-color ebay license plate. - How can I update the anonymous trademarks ??? 

Firefox-Sync is activated, but I've got no changes to the bookmarks-icons. Thanks for the tip ...

Hello,

My last month's browsing history disappeared (April 2021). It was there for a few days in May 2021 and I could see April in the "History" profile right under the "This Month" folder -as it should be. But then before I could get back to reviewing my April history, it disappeared. I believe this may have happened because my Windows 7 had alerted me that I was running low on diskspace while downloading... I maxed out my diskspace without realizing it may have cleared my browsing history to free up storage... maybe,maybe not...

So, in a panic of course, I view forums that talk about pulling up my Mozilla profile.

I try typing: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in Windows and only find a single JSON file that I am not able to make sense of in an online JSON viewer...

I also tried installing a Firefox add-on SQlite viewer but I am having trouble finding what forums are calling "places.sqlite"... There is no SQ.LITE Manager under the Firefox 'Tools' tab...

I also tried to find the 'index.dat' file in a free online download of a dat viewer but i get this message: "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded' after droping the dat file into it... I will include a screenshot of this...

Picture 1: Dat viewer Picture 2: The only file appearing after %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ entry into windows.... Picture 3: SQ.lite viewer.... Picture 4: JSON Viewer...before i drop JSON file Picture 5: JSON Viewer...after drop JSON file

Check mate. I don't know what else to do. I just need to view my entire month of April 2021 browsing history because Firefox crashed and did not restore my "restore previous session" a few weeks ago... I've never seen firefox erase browsing history so fast...

Please...please help. God bless.

The website, Radio Garden, doesn't even allow you to register, much less input passwords or credit cards. If any, the creator of this site only collects data for analysis reasons, that's really about it. Radio Garden is a site that lets you listen to radio stations around the world without the need of ever registering at all (and through mobile, users can pay a small fee to rid of intrusive ads, but not actual, radio station ads in which they have no control of). Can the guys at Firefox know that Radio Garden is NOT an illegitimate site and flag it as secure and safe instead? Thanks.

And yes, there have been sites that are flagged as false positive because Firefox, along with other browsers, like to get incredibly touchy for no apparent reason.

I am currently running Windows 10 and Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit) and Kaspersky Internet Security 21.3.10.391(b).

I have discovered an anomaly unique to Firefox which causes issues when using the Kaspersky Safe Money function for more than one website.

If you do not add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to both the Firefox normal browser window that you use for all browsing AND also to the Protected Browser window, when you try to open 2 or more websites that should have protected browers, you get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to only the Firefox normal browser window, you still get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

The reason this is unique to Firefox is that you do NOT need to add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to either Chrome or Edge to make the Safe Money function work correctly for more than 1 website.

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to Edge or Chrome, you only need to add it once, to the normal browser window, you do NOT need to add it to the protected browser window.

Surely this is a fault in Firefox and should be investigated and corrected or can someone explain why this happens with Firefox but not the other browsers.

I look forward to any information, advice etc that will help.
