(Pop!_OS distro used) I use a handful of resources to monitor my laptop's resources. The attached image is from the htop command (note that I've been using the laptop at most an hour, and it was compltely powered off before. Unsure why it says such high times.). Over the past four-ish months, I've seen firefox's new-window command (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window) function very strangely. Two instances of the command randomly run for extended periods of time (anywhere from a few seconds to two or three minutes, often towards the longer end), taking up ~100% of the cpu usage for each given one second interval (the time my htop is configured to check). While I'm aware htop records cpu statistics extremely different than task manager (frankly, I'm not quite sure how it measures), this cpu spike takes place with other irregular fluctuations in my laptop, which says to me that the command is in fact doing something. When the cpu spikes occur, I see my cpu temperature rise up to 80 degrees Celsius, and it's frequency hit it's cap for only a handful of threads, while the rest stay completely unchanged.

To clarify the extent of the randomness when I say the commands run randomly: this happens without any pattern that I can identify. I've had anywhere from 1 to 10 tabs open, resting in the background from anywhere between a couple minutes to half an hour, and two new-window commands will run, unprompted, as described above. I've been scrolling through an article, and out of no where, the twin commands run. I've loaded up webpages and the commands have run. I've been watching videos, simply opened a new tab (ironic given the command name), just anything you can do on the web browser, and the commands have run. And there have been days where this issue doesn't happen at all. This can happen numerous times while I'm on firefox. It could happen once, followed by a lot of intervals of the commands running, or it could be a while before the next time it happens.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb to me is that, as I mentioned at the end of the first paragraph, I see one thread 'catch' and cause this spike. It's a random thread, it can be a different one each time this happens during a given session on firefox, but I've only every noticed it to be one thread.

Not sure what's up. I tried to be as detailed as possible since I could find anything about this on these forums.

Can someone please tell me why Firefox has remove Page Info on the right click?

Sense Firefox doesn't have a setting to set all cookies to "Allow for Session", I have been doing it by my self on every page I see. I right click, select Page info, go to permissions then change "Set Cookie" from default, which is "Allow" to "Allow for Session".

I read their update page before I updated, and no where on the page do they mention removing page info and for what reason.

Does anybody have an idea why?

Recently Windows forced an update to 20H2. All my other programs display font okay. However Firefox (desktop -- latest version) does not display fonts properly. The letters flash between thin and normal.

Strangely enough when I took a screen shot to demonstrate the weird font display the fonts were perfectly fine in the screen shot.

I took a picture with my phone. In the image one can see difference in the width of the two L in "all" As mentioned this is only happening in Firefox.

Thanks for any clues.

Hi,

I'm a little frustrated, I love Mozilla and it's normally high on the list of favourite apps. I was a bit shocked to recieve a notification on my phone saying 'install Mozilla as your default browser to avoid creepy trackers' (or v similar) I can normally rely on Mozilla to operate outside of fear mongering and emotive prompts to manipulate you into doing things it wants. Is this going to be a pattern or was this just a one off?

I have been a fan of the awesomebar for quite some time; tab selection using % enables progress after chaotic web surfing and bookmark searching using * circumvents the need of retracing already known websites. (I have removed suggestions and history though, I find that those are mostly in the way.)

One limitation for me as a programmer is that while searching for Python helps me find the correct bookmarks, including C in a search is not helpful, as a c anywhere in a bookmark will give a hit. This even goes for '.com'! The same problem occurs when searching for bookmarks in the bookmark library.

My suggested improvement would be to allow search terms to be interpreted narrowly. This could be done by adding quotes, for example "C" (single quotes could also work).

Is this already possible in some way? And if not, where would be the best place to suggest the improvement? [feedback page reads "Please check back soon"] ( and I'm not sure whether this suits the Bugzilla platform.

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

Is there any way to stop Firefox automatically installing updates on Linux? It's incredibly disruptive when I'm in the middle of work, open a new tab and Firefox says it needs to be restarted to install updates. When in this state, opening new tabs yields the same result. I'm using 87.0 built for Ubuntu, installed out of the package repo.
