With the recent release of Firefox 84.0, I noticed that the shortcut for the Bookmarks Library was changed from Ctrl+Shift+B to Ctrl+Shift+O. I use bookmarks extensively, but most of that is centered around the Library pane. I rarely, if ever, use the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Is there an option to go back to the old shortcut?

I am alarmed to learn from moderator Cor-el that FF installs a back door on my browser to load studies even after I specifically set my FF preferences to NOT participate in any study. Under Privacy and Security > Firefox Data Collection and Use, I unchecked the box to DISALLOW studies. ~ I am NOT enrolled in any study according to about:studies ~

--> How can I stop this? Can I delete all these "app.normandy."options in the about:config window without breaking the browser? Or do I set all or some to False? I am not a programmer. I would appreciate a lay person explanation.

~ The bigger question: Why is Firefox is inserting these 'studies' surreptiously irregardless of the options I set? ~

I deliberately stopped installing upgrades after v.84 to avoid problems caused by unannounced changes to functionality and the interface. Especially after the terrible changes to the print function which I encountered using another computer. But this disruptive, unwanted Print experiment appeared on this PC, despite not updating.

Thank you to the helpful moderators who can identify which about:config options we can change to false to roll back changes. However, it is not beneficial to make us waste hours to hunt these down.

I did NOT enroll in any FF studies. Yet, moderator Cor-el said the app.normandy preferences will install new features and 'shield studies' anyways. I stopped downloading FF updates after v.84. I wanted to avoid the disastrous change to the print function that showed up on another computer. I spent hours trying to figure out what happened and how to get rid of of it. Nevertheless, Firefox installed this unwanted print 'update.' So my question is whether it is safe to turn off or delete all the app.normandy preferences in about:config ? Or do I only need to change the settings on a few? If so, which ones. What happens if I change these?

Hi everyone,

I'm on w7-64. I updated to FF86, and there were obvious problems with it, so I installed 84. Works fine, except that now I'm noticing twitter and facebook get slower over time. I didn't notice that before reinstallation of 84.

I just created a new profile and refreshed. Will monitor. But what is the usual issue when firefox is doing this? Basically its not releasing memory correct?

I tried useing Firemin (https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/firemin/), and there was a noticable difference with twitter and firefox. But I'd rather just fix the issue instead of using a bandaid if I can.

During the reinstallation of FF84, I did delete a few registry entries (I followed a page like this to do it (https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-email/164280-remove-firefox-completely-then-reinstall.html)). But I don't know how that could effect releasing memory.

I'll keep you updated, but does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

I'm trying to use a custom start page on new tabs opening (not happy that I have to use an extension for such basic functionality btw) but my service worker does not seem to activate or used when opening. Opening a new tab takes multiple seconds.

Navigating to the site (I have my start page hosted on AWS) on an existing tab is instantaneous, as is refreshing this page once the tab is loaded. So what gives? As far as I can tell Firefox doesn't install service workers on a per-tab basis, so there should be no issue here.

When I try to dowload a file, i fails and create a 0 byte file. I tried with repository firefox, and download the tar.gz from dev version. Both fail. I deleted ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla to start fresh and the error persist. I can browse, open a PDF in integrated viewer, but I am unable to save it. Other browsers can download files to ~/Downloads without problems.
