Keep getting the message on new Tab page..."500 Internal Error". Tried a search of it, found correction suggestions...did a soft & hard reboot=nothing. Tried finding the Firefox Cache, that said to delete, but can't find that file in the Settings tab in Firefox. So can't do any searches in Firefox for 2 days now. Can you help to resolve this? Or, do I have to delete Firfox & go to another browser?

I am having a significant issue with firefox draining my battery. I used chrome up until the new year and then switched over to firefox from chrome. Overall I love firefox so much more. The format is way more pleasing. I love how it easily signs me back into everything, BUT IT DRAINS MY COMPUTER SO MUCH. Like i used to have an 8hour + battery span my laptop neverrr died. Now I get through MAX 2 hours of full use before needing to charge, and maybe 4 hours just having it at school but not using it.

I thought my dell suddenly started crashing, ran all these tests, and then I realized the only change was that I had started using Firefox... So sad I think I am going to have to leave it.

I read a lot of articles and did everything suggested. my graphics is webreader , i turned on all the suggested features, i have 2 extensions , the only thing I could maybe think of was that I use an animated theme so maybe that was killing the battery, but like if I can't use my theme than whats the point.

I just noticed today that my New Tab Page is now displaying an old set of icons (are they called bookmarks?) It might be associated with the recent update to v121, but I have lost several newer pinned icons. The display today is shown in the attached image, and I have drawn a red diagonal through icons that have not appeared on my New Tab Page for some time. I don't have a list or image of the recent ones that are gone missing.

I'm sure I'll eventually find and replace the ones that I lost, but this is just embarrassing for FF, which I use for just about everything.

If there's a way to revert, I'd like to know.

I am trying to block myself from checking on my old employer's website, and I need to block myself from being able to go to their web page. How do I block a specific website? I do not want to access this site, and I find myself checking the site. I sound nuts, I know. But this is for my own good.

Is it possible for a big tech company like Apple to release a web platform that is not compatible with Firefox? Firefox is not supported by Apple School Manager (https://school.apple.com) i.e. a web platform designed for educational institutions (PA). Is it legal? Is it possible to make a claim to EU institutions? Thank you

Tab Grouping app replacement or work-around

I am trying to migrate from a very old version of Firefox (v. 55) to the current one, but there is an app that is more helpful to me that all the other features combined. That is the "Tab Grouping" app that will not run in any version of FF higher than v. 55.

In my work, which often includes a tremendous amount of research, I need to be able to quickly go from one group of tabs to another. If I had to open all these sites manually, that would take the better part of the day and frankly I don't have near the mental capacity to remember the tremendous number of tabs. I have had a couple replies (Thanks!) to this question sometime back, but unfortunately none were even close in performance.

So, can anyone direct me to an app that will allow very quick movement from different sets of windows/tab groups (please see screen shots below)? Is there anyway that I can get this app to work in Legacy mode? I have several other old apps that work perfectly well in this mode.

Hi, I've been using Firefox on all my devices for YEARS without any issues. However, as of recently, I had moved into a new apartment, and with that came a new internet connection, which was very slow since the beginning, but usable.

At first I had assumed that Firefox on my PC was loading websites more slowly because of my poor internet, which was partly the case - however, my laptop and Android phone were on the same network as the PC and were both much faster. So I assumed it had something to do with the differences between WiFi and Ethernet connections - the PC was plugged into the latter while the laptop and phone were using WiFi.

But then I noticed that Firefox was the only program with lacking speeds. Spotify loads video podcasts with no problem, Steam downloads are relatively fast (as much as my network allows), only Firefox took MINUTES to load a simple web site. For example, I tried opening Reddit on my PC to write this post, gave up, and am now writing it on my phone. The Reddit website is still loading on my PC as we speak.

I honestly don't know what could be causing this issue. I checked Task Manager, and Firefox isn't using any more resources than it normally would. I am also using the latest version, I just checked.

Any ideas or fixes? Even diagnosing the problem would go a long way.
