Hello,

Both Firefox dev and standard are having a problem where if i leave my browser open for some time the CPU usage goes up and it will use all 32GB of my memory until it crashes my PC, this is a content thing.

I have tried clean uninstalling both and it has fixed nothing it has gotten so bad that i need to restart firefox every 30 minutes or so I might need to swap over to an other browser at this point.

thanks for any help i can get,

since v67 firefox uses separate profiles for stable, beta and nightly builds. that's a huge step in the right direction. running versions side-by-side was mentioned in a nightly blog post: https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2019/01/14/moving-to-a-profile-per-install-architecture/ KB-document: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation

But how would I run stable and beta side-by-side?

Problems I am facing:

- both stable and beta released versions are called "Firefox.app" on macOS. So I can't have both in the programs folder

- If I rename Firefox.app (beta) to Firefox_beta.app macOS complains that signatures for that app are invalid (which is expected, so that's not a solution)

It would be awesome to run those versions in parallel. But how would that be done?

Ответ, выбранный спрашивавшим https://support.mozilla.org/ru/questions/1257207 не помог - на ПК нет файла places.sqlite. Альтернативное решение, предложенное @jscher2000, также оказалось бесполезным - закладка с тэгами, которые больше никому не были присвоены, удалялась, а тэги оставались.

When I click on non-secure link in secure page in a frame it won't open the URL unless I open it in a new tab. If I change the non-secure link to a secure link in a secure page in a frame I can open the URL in the page. If I open the page with no frame I can open the non-secure link in the secure page. It seems to be the frame is stopping the non-secure link opening.

I have used 1Password/Firefox for years. With this version of Firefox, I cannot add its extension the normal way even though 1PW shows in add-ons and the icon is in the menu bar. When 1PW is invoked, I get a window opening and a message asking me to add 1PW extension to Firefox. I select Firefox but the Firefox accept dialog never appears. I am using Firefox V 68 beta 10. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I've been having problems with Facebook not displaying correctly in Firefox. It does work 100% in other browsers.

I"m using Firefox with Win 10.

I have cleared all recent history, cookies, cache. My sytem time is correct. I have checked all addons and extentions. I have even refreshed Firefox and nothing helps.

When I try to load Facebook it looks like a page with No Style but the Page Style is set as Basic Page Style. I have scanned for virus and Malware.

Most other pages load without any problems. Facebook has the problem and I also cannot load pages on Safelinking.net

Hi. I'm on 68.0b12 and I keep getting a message that Firefox can't update automatically to the latest version and I have to install a fresh copy. The day I got the message first I was running 68.0.b9 and I downloaded a fresh copy via the installer 3 times and the version was still the same and I kept getting the message. Now I'm somehow on b12 and I'm still getting that massage. It keeps appearing on my menu and takes me to the Firefox download page.
