Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

I will repost this every so often until I get SOMETHING to help with this,or I get banned from asking questions (If that's even possible). THIS IS GOING TO DRIVE ME INSANE. I have to adjust my volume when unpausing something because it's too quiet, but then I have to adjust it AGAIN because after it unfades, it's too loud. I KNOW THIS IS PROBABLY A FEATURE, but I don't care. I only have this problem with Firefox, so if there's no solution I'll probably switch back to Google Chrome. I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW TO DISABLE THIS, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE about:config, AND IT'S NOT IN SETTINGS.

Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

Greetings everyone,

Firefox is my preferred browser and I really prefer the Firefox Engine over Chromium that most other browsers use.

I want to install a backup browser that runs the Firefox Engine in case my Firefox browser has a problem.

I searched a lot and I thought installing this would be the best option: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/developer/

However, I’m worried that installing the Firefox developer edition will change my Firefox installation…

SUMMARY : I would like to disable all animations/twinkles/flickers/waves that indicate some elements inside a Web page are missing and are being loaded. I think all these "animations" make my computer lag.

Hello,

I would say that since Firefox 89, my browser has begun lagging like hell when it loaded some rich Web pages. And I have the impression it is worse with Firefox 107. When I'm saying Firefox lags, I mean it uses heavily my CPU (over 50%), and Firefox is almost unresponsive (for complex Web pages. For Wikipedia or Amazon, I don't have any trouble for example). I have to wait for Firefox to finish to load the full Web page and to display all elements before the usage of my CPU gets back to 1%. And it can take several minutes for some sites/pages.

The problem doesn't come from my connection. And the trouble doesn't come from sites I'm visiting because once all elements are loaded Firefox is responsive.

More precisely, for some sites, when I start loading the page, Firefox replaces missing (i.e not yet displayed/loaded) elements of the page with a rectangle of the same size of the element and each one of these rectangles are slightly flickering to inform me that AT THIS PLACE there is an element of the same size that is going to be displayed. When I'm saying "flickering" I could say it looks like a rectangle with a gradient of gray that is "waving" slowly. Sometimes it's a very light gray, sometimes a dark gray. It depends of the sites.

And all these kind of "animations" are killing my computer. And I would like to totally disable these animations/twinkles/flickers/waves. For example, would it be possible to replace the color gradient animation with a static pink color ?

I have a 10 years old laptop with iGPU (an Intel i5-2410M exactly) without discrete GPU. That doesn't help. I know. For me the trouble comes from there. But currently I can't afford buying a new laptop. I think all my drivers are up to date as my Ubuntu 20.04 is up to date.

WHAT I'VE TRIED WITHOUT SUCCESS 1. I removed ‘.mozilla’ folder in my profile (i.e the folder that contains all addons and customizations) 2. Firefox in Safe Mode 3. I disabled hardware acceleration 4. I've tried Firefox uses too much memory or CPU resources

I really would appreciate your help because now, surfing on some sites becomes a big pain and I'm becoming mad (LOL).

Thank you in advance :)

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

It's so maddening trying to do something as simple as accessing all my bookmarks! Why?! It's an integral feature of browsing that pinheads around the globe, like me, use on a regular basis? Why does it have to be a mystery easter egg hunt just to find them?! Why does it have to be one of the major topics on your Support page instead of simple, and user friendly, so it's not one of the likely topics people need help with? When I click on the bookmarks symbol, I can access the most recent bookmarks but not the rest. I searched online and the help said to access them in the Library. Where the fuck is the library? It's not visible. Not in Settings. Is this browser made for masochists that love torture?! Ahhhgggg!
