Dear Community,

I have a hand full of passwords I would like Firefox to fill out but stop asking me if I like to save logins and passwords every time I have to login on a websites.

Unfortunately, when I uncheck "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", Firefox will stop "Autofill logins and passwords", even the saved ones.

Does anyone know a workaround?

Hopefully, Elmar

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'm using Firefox 84.0.2 on Ubuntu 18.04. It has suddenly stopped being able to load Google Calendar. It shows the banner for Google Calendar but no content, and the progress bar shows it continually trying to load. Even after several minutes there is no time-out. The problem persists in safe mode. No other Google products (Gmail, Google Drive) show this problem, and the calendar loads normally in Chrome. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

# 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

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile1_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile2_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is the RAM and SWAP usage before my 2nd refresh today (uptime: 8 hours 46 minutes)

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Open_1.22.2021.png

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 just got a Pi 4b with 8gb. So I picked up SanDisk MicroSD 64 GB with 170Write.

Loaded the Ubuntu Desktop 20.10. It boots in 30 seconds. Wow...

Printer setup was super easy... Had to add Clementine to Play M4A music from itune files.

Ok... Loaded just fine. Plays Great. The Ubuntu 20.10 comes with Firefox 81.0 browser. My favorite Browser. Went out to my Favorite Anime site to play some video. Animefreak.tv

Error loading player: No playable Sources Found

Well the Video Codec plugin not there. Checked the Add-ons Enabled

 OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.

This plugin is automatically installed by Mozilla to comply with the WebRTC specification and to enable WebRTC calls with devices that require the H.264 video codec. Visit https://www.openh264.org/ to view the codec source code and learn more about the implementation.

 ! OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly.

So I installed the new version of Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit). ok. I am using it now. No Video play back in Firefox on Ubuntu 20.10. Same Problem. I turned on the Allow Automatic updates in firefox openH64 Video Codec. Maybe it will update and install. Well I am not holding my breath. Its to bad, because the Pi 4b is just as fast as my Laptop HP envy running win10.

If you can find a fix. I would be grateful.

Hello,

When my Openconnect VPN is on, Firefox takes very long time to open links from outside its own window: ie links opened with xdg-open in Linux (Ctrl+Click). If Openconnect is Off, links open almost instantly as expected.

Here's /etc/resolv.conf when Openconnect is Off. And here /etc/resolv.conf when Openconnect is On: search contains 11 internal domains. Environment: - KDE Plasma 5.20.5 - Firefox 84.0.2 - xdg-utils 1.1.3 - networkmanager-1.26.4 - networkmanager-openconnect-1.2.6 - openconnect-8.09

System proxy settings: No Proxy

What I have tried: - Start Firefox in Safe-mode (no effect) - Explicitly setting Proxy to None / System Default in FF settings (no effect) - Opening links resolvable only inside VPN and just google.com (no effect) Only turning Off Openconnect helps so far. I suspect it's got to do with name resolution (maybe routing as well?), but have no conclusive evidence. Btw, Chrome is not affected by this behavior.

Thank you

It's been a while since I noticed Firefox video is laggy on every website. I thought it was about some driver problem but everything else seemed to work well. I downloaded Chrome and it didn't have any problem running any video.

I tried clearing Firefox's cache and I tried to "refresh Firefox" on about::config, but it didn't work. I don't have any missing system updates, I'm running Firefox 84.0.2-1.fc33 on Fedora Workstation 33.

I don't like using Chrome so your help will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

One use case: I'm comparing products where I don't necessarily find something so good that I can come to conclusion now, so I need a way to save it.

Do you know such an extension or have good ideas how to search it?

I need to clear my personal data out of a computer before I return it to its owner. I am **absolutely** appalled and shocked by the fact that it seems to be impossible to clear out all my stored passwords on this firefox browser installation, unless I simply uninstall firefox -- which is exactly what I am about to do. And now that I am aware of this appalling security flaw, I am sorry to say that I will be uninstalling it from everywhere else I use it too.

How can it possibly be that it is thought to be "OK" that in order to remove stored passwords, the user must remove each individual password separately. In my case, that is 227 passwords!! I can clear all browsing history, all cookies, all site-cache data, etc etc.... but several minutes of searching, both in the settings and more generally online, only has produced a way to remove passwords one at a time?

If i have missed the UI to do this, then I apologize for being so annoyed -- but in that case I must report that the feature is EXTREMELY well hidden.

I just cannot BELIEVE any browser I sign into with firefox sync almost instantly copies 227 passwords of mine onto a machine, and that I cannot remove them without doing several HUNDRED clicks.

What am I failing to understand here?

It would be much appreciated if some future answer to this question could also be sent to [email]@gmail.com. I do not think i will be logging into my firefox account again until I can feel more secure that the act of logging in won't copy hundreds of passwords in a way which I then need to spend hours removing.

I loved this browser, but unless I am mistaken about this problem, I'm afraid I simply can no longer use it.

This particular firefox browser is running on an old old lubuntu 386 laptop. Or rather, it is about to be "was running." Perhaps this is a problem in some old old version of firefox which I am running because I am on such an old machine. It is 84.0.2 (32 bit) running on an old old Acer Aspire One. If that is the case, may I a suggest that you add to your support pages some information on how to remove ALL saved logins in a single act.

Thank you scott petrack

The drop-down list with known usernames and passwords extends until below the screen if there is a sufficient number of usernames stored. The funny thing is that the list is scrollable by mouse and arrow (up/down) keys, so it wouldn't be necessary to extend the list that far down. Just until the lower boundary of the current firefox windowwould have been sufficient.

The result is that I can't see (nor select) the usernames that are listed below the screen.

Firefox 75 64 bit on Fedora 32.

I hope this description was clear enough as I'm hesitant to include a screenshot showing all usernames involved on those site.

For anyone who wonders why so many logins: it's a list of email adresses currently in use in a webmail service.


Thanks.

I just installed Brave, and clicked on "Import settings & bookmarks", then chose Firefox from a popup list

Without typing my password, or doing anything else, Brave then instantly imported all of the saved passwords that I had stored in Firefox. I can now view all of my most secret saved passwords of Firefox... in Brave

This makes me wonder, if Brave can instantly import (and display in clear text) all of my Firefox saved passwords, couldn't any other rogue app do exactly the same?

Shouldn't they be stored in an encrypted format, at least?

Am I missing something or are the passwords wide open that Firefox saves?

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.
