When I attempted to do a post purchase customer survey, the scoundrels at Target tricked me into installing an incredibly invasive, suspicious SearchesCentral browser, which has now replaced my Firefox browser. What can I say? I am not very computer saavy. How do I undo this ghastly error, and remove this potentially dangerous software from my brand new laptop?

Hi !

Firefox asked me again to create a new profile. Third or forth time within a month or two. Nothing serious, I have to admit, takes a few minutes to recover bookmarks, reset duckduckgo as default search engine, etc., but why is it happening? Version 87.0, Windows 10, 64 bit.

And while I'm here... I use to download a lot of webpages, for information purposes, it's easier than to bookmark them all. Doesn't work correctly for a while now, they are not saved as webpages, but as something resembling html-format (or however to describe it)... Still working with Edge and Opera, so it must be a Firefox issue. And after each update Firefox was reset to French language automatically one or two days later, this also does not happen any more. I'm neither English nor French native speaker, so again, not a real problem, but why is it happening? or rather not happening any more?

Just curious... Thanks in advance for any hint Best regards Michael

whenever i boot up my computer, firefox automatically starts atleast 9 tasks in background that end up eating half of my ram, and one of them eats an entirety of my processor. Whenever i check my task manager(i use windows 10), it shows that one particular task is taking 100% of my cpu. I have to manually stop the task or it ends up slowing down my laptop. I already have the latest version of firefox and i am having this problem for 2-3 months. What do i do?

Hello,

Everytime I start typing "Facebook.com" into the addressbar the first suggestion is a site "Fastcompany.com." I will often just type "Fa" and hit enter which takes me to fastcompany.com instead of facebook.com. Firefox never used to do this. I am unable to delete fastcompany.com from the suggested list. I have tried every method, checked my bookmarks, delted my history, cleared all cookies and cache, I even installed an addon to block the site but the suggestion still remains. How do I remove it so that when I type "fa" and press enter I go to facebook instead of fastcompany?

Thanks
