I have always in private mode enabled. Why is there a small web cache stored each time I open firefox?

Basically I have Never Remember History enabled, and each time I open FF there's data in 'Cookies and Site Data'. Under 'Cookies and Site Data' it will say there's a bit of data (in the photo is says 16Kb, which is pretty typical). If I look under 'manage cookies and site data' there will be nothing there. Sometimes the cookies or cache or whatever is bigger if the last time I used that profile I was watching videos, at most it will be a couple Mb's maybe. If I wipe it out, it will go to 0Kb, and then for the rest of the profile session, even if I have a bazillion tabs open, it will say 0, but then there's always a cache there the next time I start that profile.

What is it? Why is there always a small amount of data in the 'Cookies and Site Data' section each time I restart a profile?

I'm currently running version 68.2.0esr on Debian Linux version 5.3.0-1-amd64. Extension: uBlock Origin 1.23.0

                 uMatrix 1.4.0
                 Canvasblocker 0.5.14.

Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (disabled) Version 1.8.1.1

              Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Version 4.10.1440.19

I have web history turned off ('Never Remember History'), trackers blocked, cookies enabled w/ third party disabled, auto search engine update turned on, Do Not Track enabled, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' enabled by default (b/c history is off). I might have changed a few tiny things in about:config but nothing I remember offhand. Any other system info I can look up in need be.

Linux 7.8.2003. Just did yum update. Firefox was updated. My customization (menu bar on) was OK. Running it, my bookmarks appear as before, but clicking on one, nothing happens. Ditto Help menu, where I tried to see Firefox version number. Just now, I tried again, by accident holding mouse button down instead of clicking on Bookmarks or Help, move pointer to desired option, release button. This amazingly works. So I can tell you version of Firefox is 68.7.Oesr (64-bit). (I usually use NoScript, but disabled it for this test, same result.) I am sending this help request from a different machine, so did not click Share Data.

Any link or button which is processed with Javascript causes firefox to hang. Its window doesn't responsing, however, after some seconds, a small window (that seems like a js-alert window) is shown. This window has 2 buttons, but there's no text in a whole window. Window's title in taskbar is just "Untitled window". If i close this window, firefox hangs again for a few seconds (the main window is having artifacts of other windows until that small window will be shown again)

In certain cases, after i kill the main window process, there is appeared the requested by link window.

I've got these bugs on Gmail options page, for example (but that trouble finding me everywhere on the net, on forums, sites, portals etc.)

I've tried to disable all the plugins, remove my ~/.mozilla, rebuilding firefox – no results.

Firefox is built on Gentoo linux OS. `emerge --info firefox` can be found here: http://pastie.org/1318950

Here are some screenshots: http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/86fd071c0143d6977f9bce91585da346.png http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/128419a536bec6e65a940e0546aa6741.png

--- Sorry for my english, guess there are a lot of mistakes again, right?

Hi there,

This website's really twisting my mind: I posted some question some time ago and there is no way to get back to it because my dashboard is empty and there is no apparent link to the questions section of this website. Thanks to Google I sneaked my way through https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions and then only I could find my question again.

Turning in circles again and again on a website is not nice for the end user. I know you seem to want people to go through your troubleshooting process---which I can understand, but all I want is to review my already asked question.

It would be nice if you added some link somewhere---if I missed it, please point it out to me.

Regards, Benjamin

I often want to keep a tab open and go back to the search. It used to be that clicking on a search result opened a new tab,but now it replaces the search with that link so that I have to back out of it to get to the search and use history to see where I have been. This is a dealbreaker for me. There does not appear to be any way of restoring this behavior, even in about:config. Help

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

Hi! Not much on details. I just want to move my existing profile to a server. Can I just copy name.default to the server, rename name.default on the client, and on the client create a link name.default to the server profile? Or, can I use ProfileManager to create a new profile on the server and copy the contents of the client profile to the new one?

Each time I watch a movie on my video streaming website I get an error message in a yellow notification bar ("the clearkey plugin has crashed" -- translation), and there is no issues with video playback. How can I automatically get rid of this bar (other than by clicking "close this message"), which sticks on the top of the window even in full screen mode?
