Hello As others have said recently, Firefox has become unusually greedy in RAM!

I love Firefox and it's been my favorite browser for years and years. But there it became unmanageable for me!

I'm absolutely not going to spend money to add more RAM to my PC tower, which is only three years old, and otherwise performs perfectly well for my use with all my other apps. There is 8 GB of RAM in my PC, a fast model of RAM, very fast, and expensive. You have to stop, guys, and face the truth! There is a real problem and there is no point in denying it, and saying that it takes more than 8 GB on a PC at the end of 2020.

The CONCRETE result is that we are all going to change the browser we use, it's super sad, and it is happening NOW. I don't want to change, but I have no choice. It's kind of heartbreaking for me, believe me.

I want to move IMAP folders to Local Folders to save room on server.

I am a small painting contractor and I want to save my emails and have access to them, but I am getting low on server space with my provider.

I was thinking that if I moved them to local folders that would be the answer, but trying drag and drop with folders doesn't always work. I have a few folders that have allowed me to do that, but then after a few folders it doesn't keep adding more.

I use a Tree structure for my projects:

My Company Name

   Projects
       2015
           15-001 Project Name
           15-002 Project Name
       2016
           16-001 Project Name
           16-002 Project Name

I also have a similar structure for estimates, insurance, taxes, etc.

Each project can have a few emails or as many as 100.

Each year I have 100 - 150 projects.

This amounts to 10's of thousands of emails.

I just want to have access to them, but they do not need to be active.

How can I do this?

I uninstalled Libre Office and it apparently uninstalled the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll file s part of its uninstall process. From this point Firefox would open but would not connect to the Internet, either by clicking one of the links in the toolbar or typing the address directly. I have tried all the solutions I can find on the support pages, ranging from attempting to copy the file from another location to re-installing Visual C++ from the Microsoft website, both the 64 bit and the x86 versions. Having found and installed the latest version of Visual C++ I now get the error message "The procedure entry point _CxxFramehandler4 could not be located in the dynamic link library C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll" at the edn of the installation process, and of course Firefox has not installed. Any suggestions for a way forward?

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

Was working fine day before. Went to print and it stops after (it appears) to start sending to the printer. Pops up an error message. Run diagnose and it returns with "The printers state message is "Filter Failed"

Prints fine with any other browser of software.

I have tired all the reset printers instructions on here. Including editing the config file.

The response is the same regardless or whether I enter google.com as server URL. What am I missing?

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?
