Running v 60 ESR, downgraded from v 68, with zero problems for 3 weeks.

I've had this problem all of a sudden since last week. Steps I've taken so far:

  • Changed "security.tls.version.min" to 3 from 1 (didn't work)
  • Deleted cert8.db (didn't work)
  • Changed to Google DNS (not sure)
  • Changed to "auto-detect proxy" from "system proxy" (not sure, maybe)
  • Disabled IPV6 (not sure, maybe)
  • Turned off/on wifi hotspot, rebooted laptop (not sure, maybe)

The last 3 steps I took at the same time and they worked. On reboot the problem went away, albeit for 2 days!

It just came back, now it's performing a TLS handshake on about half the sites, with loading after 30-60 seconds or not at all. From searching, I see that solutions are all over the place on this and it's specific to FF. A post clearly identifies a Symantec certificates issue.

This is probably the toughest issue I've come across on FF.

I want wrote extension, that will open sidebar (with bookmarks) on New Tab, and close it on other tabs.

I make background script with next content: ``` browser.tabs.onActivated.addListener(function(tab){ if(tab.url=="about:newtab") browser.sidebarAction.open() else browser.sidebarAction.close() }) ``` And I get next error in console: `browser.sidebarAction is undefined`

Also I can see here that such actions "can only be called from inside the handler for a user action." Clicking the extension's browser action or page action.

And I want ensure whether tabs.onActivated event is a User action?

And if not, is there any ways or suggestions to go around this limitation?

After I resume Windows from sleep, the Whatsapp web app becomes very slow to type in, and the whole browser becomes sluggish as a whole while typing (like this one).

I noticed extra processes being created after each resume. I think it maxes to 2 processes, but I'm not sure at this point as it needs further testing. See the attached image.

While using Firefox, I was watching a video when all of a sudden the entire thing crash and when I tried to reboot it, the installation directory, the cookies and everything else involving Firefox was completely gone. No sign of it anywhere, has this ever happened to anyone else here?

Almost every time ff updates, which seems to be almost every two weeks, things I have carefully arranged in my menus, etc; get messed up and I have to spend days fixing things. I am an information researcher and now can not bookmark anything!!! The bookmark icon, the little star at the top of page, is still there, BUT IT NO LONGER HAS THE "BOOKMARK THIS PAGE" option. It has only the 'show bookmarks' option and some other stuff. So how do I bookmark pages???!!! Please stop with the useless constant poorly thought thru 'updates'.

Delete Account functionality

Even though I previously deleted the Firefox account associated with my usual e-mail address, Firefox appears to remember this account. However, it does NOT remember the password associated with this account. If I want to reset the password, I am told via Firefox message that this entails possible loss of personal data, incl. bookmarks, which defeats the purpose of creating an account in the first place.

So I can neither re-create nor log in to this zombie account but have to use a different e-mail address in order to use Firefox account functionality.

Getting help in this situation without a working Firefox account is also next to impossible (without a Twitter account, at least), as I needed to get an account even to access the page from which I am writing this. Firefox browser feedback is also disabled, Firefox Facebook is paused.

If the above description is correct, then I guess the only help is a reworking of the Delete Account functionality.

NOTES:

  • This is not a case of forgotten password (I wrote it down on paper at the time) or wrongly-typed password (I copied and pasted the password string from Notepad when previous login attempts had been unsuccessful.)
  • The deletion of the previous account took place on 2019-01-08 and included confirmation "Account deleted successfully".
  • When I created a new account for a different e-mail address today, I was informed by Firefox that a Firefox account had previously been created from the same machine for a different e-mail address. So, not only does Firefox remember the e-mail address of an allegedly successfully deleted account but also the identity of the machine associated with that account.

When I type facebook.com into my address bar I keep getting sent to m.facebook.com/?refsrc...etc.,etc. Then when I log in from that address I'm at m.facebook.com/?_rdr, which is apparently what people with cell phones or iPads see. Why is this? What should I do? Thanks
