hello there and good evening:3 my husband and i are having this repetitive and extremely frequent bright yellow pop up with a robot that states "a webpage might be slowing down your browser." then the option to wait, or stop it. i've ran out of patience with this notification to the point to where even though i'de hate to, i would have no choice but to switch back to chrome just to stop being spammed by this pop up while im trying to relax. it happens more frequently on youtube and walmart.com, and i just want it to stop because it seems as if when it does show up, once it starts it never stops, and it actually slows down my webpage to the point of becoming unresponsive and stalling/crashing my only webpage open at the time. my husband has the same issue and we both use windows desktop. it only started appearing after the latest update. please, can someone help me make this thing go away? its very stressful and i cant browse in peace anymore on firefox. yes we have turned off all background processes, and we both have scowered settings troubleshooting for hours at a time to no avail, it just never stops and it behaving like a really bad bug.

Since today I see a blank page when I open firefox. Everything was working ok before. I tried to purge firefox with all data and install again but the problem persists. I also tried to use firefox 85 and 86 from the website rather than from the apt-get package but this also didn't help. The same happens in safe-mode. I can't even access preferences, passwords, and other built-in pages. Please see the screenshot attached. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.

When I close firefox it runs in the background and I have to kill the process manually.

When viewing a video powered by a Brightcove player, the playback control bar on the bottom does not hide when entering full screen mode. I have tried moving the mouse in all areas of the screen, play/paused it with the spacebar/mouseclick, and tried several other methods but it simply does not want to disappear. An example of a website that uses the Brightcove player is the IPL website. You can click here to access one of the videos on the site.

I have tested this with other browsers and the playback control disappears as it should when entering full screen so it seems to be some issue with Firefox. I recently contact Brightcove support and they were not able to replicate the issue on their version of Firefox and just recommended I use a different browser. But it would be really helpful if someone could help me fix this strange bug.

Thank you.

I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 on a MacMini (late 2018) with 64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 and Firefox v86.0 64-bit.

I need to disable Command+D that's currently used to "Bookmark This Page".

I need Command+D for another use.

I've searched about:config for "bookmark" and get a lot of hits, but I can't tell which one controls the setting for Command+D.

Or . . . am I barking up the wrong tree?

I want to disable Command+D.

Leaving the ability to mouse up and click Bookmarks > "Bookmark This Page" is ok.

I just need to disable the keyboard shortcut Command+D for "Bookmark This Page".

Anyone got a "howto" for this?

Thanks!

I have been getting this error lately. Later I noticed it only seems to happend when Firefox is running. literly can't find anything online what so ever. So this is baffeling. I don't believe I have done anything to make it happen. I have had like 1,350 tabs before Firefox had an update (and it fked it up) so it might of been some update. Firefox hasn't been nearly that good sense. Im prob at 150-200 tabs right now and I have never seen this message. Also firefox LOVES ram. I have 16GB and over time it EATS it. like 12gb and when i hit 99% the computer slows down of course and I have to restart. All bc of firefox... see pic

My outgoing emails suddenly stopped working when I changed my password. This has not happened before. It will not save my password and I have to re-enter it intermittenly when it prompts through a popup. The worst part is that the pop up does not always appear and the email is simply stuck, giving an error message of not being able to connect to the outgoing server. I am then unable to send multiple emails and also unable to trouble shoot. Closing and reopening the email program does not always work either (ie, to bring up the prompt message/box). I have checked my security password settings and don't know what else I can do. I do not know why it is not saving my password and why it seems to 'remember' it for a while, but then 'forgets' it and I go back around the cycle again, often losing emails on the way (ie, they don't save to drafts).

There is no issue with incoming mail. However a longer-standing issue/quirk is that despite it showing it is set to to have SMTP, it is partially behaving like POP, in that I cannot see sent messages on one device if sent on another device. Otherwise, deleted message on one device (phone) results in the message is deleted before it gets to Thunderbird.... I'm not sure what's happening here, as there seems to be SOME sort of synching going on. I don't think this is related to password issue, but who knows...

Thanks for your help

Unfortunately, allowing Firefox to update means we are now stuck with the new print dialogue, which is now as un-customizeable as all other browsers. The worst element of this from my point of view as a teacher who frequently prints from the internet is the newly imposed loss of the capacity to customize headers and footers. The two-pages-per-sheet option is obviously a good thing, but in order to number the pages, one is required to splay the URL across the entire top of the page. This is yet worse if you attempt to use the two-page-per-sheet format; you will now have the URL displayed TWICE across the top of the entire page. It's ugly and unnecessary, as is the date and time that I prepped the material. The title is at the top of any article; now it also have to be on every sheet multiple times, alongside the URL, the date and time, and only one possible numbering format. What is sad is that it appears not to be understood that the desired form for much printing from the internet is something approximating the appearance of a book or journal page; whether it is two on one page, or single pages per sheet. If anyone knows how to preserve BOTH the customizable headers and footers AND select one OR two pages per sheet, we'd be very well-helped.

To outline my setup, I am using Windows 7 Ultimate with Service pack 1. I tried applying a third-party theme to Windows 7 Ultimate, but it didn't work right. So, I reset Windows theme.

Up until now, I have been very happy with Thunderbird. I have used it for many years and always accepted upgrades when offered. However, the upgrate from verison 68 to 78 has been a disaster for me. When I allowed Thunderbird to install the new version, it no longer recognized any of my previous configuration or mailboxes/folders.

I use POP servers and keep all of my email on my local disc. I have between 50 to 100 local folders, many with folders within folders. The upgrade did not find my existing login's for my email services (gmail and Comcast). It did not find any of my existing mailboxes/folders. In fact, it seemed to be a completely new installations, asking for my email services credentials. It did not find any of the many folders I have organized to hold all my old Emails. Those are kept in .MBX files with .TOC files.

How do I recover my old configuration and mail boxes? Is there a program that will convernt my old email folder structure to whatever the new Thunderbird uses? Or do I have to retrograde back to version 68 to keep my old mailboxes/folders?

I am very disappointed that no warning was given about the major changes and significant functional differences before asking to install the upgrade. This problem has cost me over a days work and much frustration. (And just so you know, I am a computer professional/programmer, so I have some idea about what I am doing.)

It stopped the other day as well, and I restarted, and it came back. Today, that didn't work.

I can't upgrade the Mac to 10.15 because I am running Photoshop CS6 with the last generation of Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop, and it won't work after 10.14.
