https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback/firefox/40.0/#moreinfo

does not load. I can enter the info/feedback but when I click submit, I get a blank page.

for example, this page will not load:

http://www.allmusic.com/artist/rick-astley-mn0000354722/songs but the page that links to it: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/MN0000354722/biography

loads just fine.

Long time user (15-20 yrs?), I have been avoiding the "next" upgrade for several years for various reasons (hate change, fave add-ons go away, hate change, not broke-don't fix, hate change...). But I am now running into a few websites that won't permit this browser, so it may be time to move on. With heavy adblocking and tracker-blocking and my benign web browsing habits, I've not been concerned about security (never had a virus in 20 years - knock wood). It's just full functionality and slowness at this point. At this point, I see even my Classic Theme Restorer is no longer available, so I'll just have to bite the bullet on aesthetics and deal with a modern browser. However, a couple of things are unclear:

1. does 20 years of bookmark history (and remembered history) affect memory footprint. I only refer to existing bookmarks occasionally these days and may consider a full purge. Partial purge would probably be too time-consuming. Maybe even a full profile purge might be worthwhile for a true clean slate. Maybe FF has come a long way and old extensions and settings won't be necessary. I also have several about: settings that I may (or may not?) miss.

2. Are automatic updates unavoidable in newer versions? I read about "manual" but it sounded temporary.

3. The permissions on many potential add-ons I've looked at are quite unnerving... e.g many of them require full access to ALL my data (usernames and passwords!!!) and I know the function has no need for such. Who has time to investigate these fully for safety? Is there any anti-malware vetting required for add-ons to be available?

4. I know newer is generally faster, but FF has a history of growing and slowing down after upgrades. My hardware isn't getting any newer (although its more than ample for my current needs), but software tends to be developed on latest and greatest hardware. How does latest FF compare to circa V41 in memory usage?


In any case, I thought I would give the latest vesion a whirl on my old Vista laptop (which is currently at V43) and check it out before plunging in on my W7 work PC or home PC. Any answers or insight into such a big jump are much appreciated.

XMarks is closing. Eversync is unreliable. So the only sync in town for Firefox users is Firefox Sync.

That makes it a shame that Mozilla doesn't have a review page, where users can rate Firefox Sync and talk over their experiences. It would greatly reassure potential users.

Also, Firefox Sync is under-documented. Does it have, like XMarks, a facility by which users can access their bookmarks when they cannot access their local browsers, e.g. when travelling? No way of knowing, without trying it! Does it sync Folders and the arrangement of links within folders accurately? No way of knowing, without trying it! Does it allow uploads to the server, downloads from the server? No way of knowing, without trying it!

Come on Firefox, a few pages of documentation, please!

Well, I've been doing Firefox sync for a long time, and it seems to work pretty well. But I'm a little confused. What EXACTLY is going on? Note: I do NOT want to know how to set up sync. I know that.

First question. When sync is automatic, when exactly does it do it? I pull down and do "Open menu" with the three bars, and then hover over the sync arrows-in-the round. It might say "Last sync: 5 minutes ago", and it might say "Last sync: 5 seconds ago". Nothing happened on my Firefox five seconds ago or five minutes ago. So who told it to sync? What determines when it is supposed to sync? I presume Firefox automatically does a sync if you change a bookmark or password.

Second question. What exactly is a sync? I gather that if the sync file (containing bookmarks and everything) in the cloud is younger than the local sync file, the local sync file will be replaced by the one in the cloud. If the sync file in the cloud is older than the local sync file, that sync file in the cloud is replaced by the local one. Is that what's going on? That is, it's all about the time stamp? Do not tell me "Sync lets you share all of your data and preferences (such as your bookmarks, history, passwords, open tabs and installed add-ons) across all your devices." I know that.

Third question. Let's suppose I want sync to ONLY be manual. As in, it will ONLY sync when I do Tools>Sync Now. How do I set it up for that?

I understand that most people are chasing and stuck with the limitations of using I-Pads (Idiot-Pads) with only two thumbs - LOL! However we use multiple displays (sometimes 2, 4 or 6 simultaneous displays depending on a client's needs) and it is desirable to NOT have the TAB function activated. There is nothing more annoying than to have a tab open every time a download is done or an app wants (immediate!) attention. It was (tab interruption) nice to (tab interruption) have (tab interruption) been able (tab interruption) to have (tab interruption) a new (tab interruption) window open and (tab interruption) to stop all (tab interruption) tabs from opening. Annoying isn't it? The "Tabs Feature" is more annoying than having spam popping up!!! We expect your product to be better than "Explorer" not the same or worst! We generally use Apple (for artistic graphics), Microsoft (for "Windows exclusive" business programs) and Linux (for Internet security) systems on various machines so we get to compare what everybody has created. We never use Linux "Unity" because it is worse than the Apple and Windows Desktops! We are not "Idiot-Pad/Phone" (oops - I-Pad/Phone) users! We are systematically migrating our clients away from Apple and Windows as Linux software improves in functionality and compatibility and provides CHOICES! Thank you

Hi All,

Recently I noticed that downloading files using file manager is stopping at random times giving an error that hard drive can't keep up with the incoming data. I checked the Task Manager and noticed high I/O read bytes for FF. I was monitoring this for some time. After initial opening the amount of read data increased to 200MB within 5 seconds. Then when I was using the FF it increased to 1GB. On one occasion it reached 16BG within 4 minutes. This is causing my disk to slow down. The amount of data read I think depends on how many tabs I have open and how intensively I'm using FF.

Can someone help me to identify what is causing this?

Latest version of FF is used Add-ons and plug ins up-to-date Windows 10 x64

Thanks

Tried upgrading to latest version. Think 57.4 or 57.0.4. Same issues reported before. Reviewing Task Manager I see multiple FF processes. One of them consuming 95%+ of CPU. Response disappears. Unable for any other task to respond. Returned to using ESR. Still not clear what ESR is and its support lifetime. Reviews several post regarding changing various options. Not had much luck getting even the option screen to appear after CPU hogging starts.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Hi,

It looks like that despite being 64-bit "browser.cache.disk.capacity" is still limited to 4 GB. So I was wondering if it will be possible to update 64-bit version to support cache size over 4 GB?

It is possible to set / modify the value of "browser.cache.disk.capacity" in "about:config" to be over 4,194,303, but it won't work, as browser will stop caching altogether.

Thanks

Can anyone suggest a solution?

I am running the latest version of Firefox (40.0.3) with ad blocker plus as my only addon. However every time I attempt to open a new tab it take ages to open because Firefox is constantly searching for an update. This takes 2-3 minutes every time. Have tried refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling without success. My system is Win 8.1 on a i7 Lenovo PC. All worked well until the latest FF upgrade. I have no problems with the same version installed on my laptop. Any help/suggestions would be much apprciated. Thanks.

Hello. I want to install Firefox ESR on top of my current installation, but what will change when I do so? What is different in ESR?

See, I have downgraded to FF 40 due to extension/add-on problems with FF 42, but I don't want an unsafe/unstable browser. ESR was recommended, but I'm confused about it. Will all my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc. remain the same? Is there a different updating schedule, and how does it work? I really need some help here.

Thank you!
