Firefox 72.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.2.

The issue start yesterday (2020-01-15). Youtube video start frequent pausing for buffering, which I don't experience for a long long time. In the past, only 8K videos require a bit longer start time. 4K and below are quite responsive when I move back and forth. However it changed starting yesterday.

I tried with Chrome and Safari with "stats for nerds" and notice a huge difference on connection speed between Firefox and the other 2 browsers.

Attached result in following order: Firefox, Chrome, Safari.

I tried multiple videos and results are similar.

I was trying to access a site via the Wayback Machine (https://web.archive.org/). It did not load, so I tried disabling all browser extensions. That did not work. I tried it in another Firefox profile that I rarely use, and have not configured at all. It does not work.

Hundreds (possibly thousands) of emails disappeared overnight. When I look at my inbox now it shows thousands of emails as new that I know I deleted . It's as if everything new was replaced with everything old. this appears to have happened to not just the In box but all my subfolders. I run my businesses online so I rely on email, and I get a ton of it. Now I can't respond to customers who's emails have disappeared!

Several bookmarks in my Bookmarks Toolbar have the wrong favicon. Specifically, they're using the Gmail favicon and are not Google bookmarks at all. Those bookmark links work perfectly, but it's very annoying and confusing

Is there a way to fix this without deleting key profile folders/files Thanks Eliuri

My Firefox on one machine was having worse and worse problems, but it's OK on the other machine (same Firefox account). So I decided to do a clean re-install of Firefox. I uninstalled via Windows 10 add/remove programs, and as I was doing so, I noticed an old version "Mozilla Firefox 58.0". I tried uninstalling that; it asks me if I want Firefox helper to make changes . . . I hit yes, and then it quits without doing anything. But the entry for version 58 remains.

From guidance on a forum, I went to c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\ and deleted it. I also deleted c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\.

I've rebooted. That old version still seems to be there.

How do I get rid of this, so I can have a clean re-install?

http://validator.w3.org/ renders as a blank page. Same for https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/.

Switching to basic page style, I can get to the unstyled content of the page, but why aren't the styles loading?

I allow JavaScript for these pages & disable Adblock Plus, and can't think of any other add-ons that might interfere.

Hi

I am busy setting up GPO for Mozilla Firefox after my client did a security audit.

So on the GPO I see that everything Applies to Firefox 60 ESR or later, does this mean the latest version of "normal" non ESR Firefox will also work?

Thanks

When I load the New York Times website, it opens automatically in the Facebook container. I have cleared all history and restarted the browser and then opened only the New York Times -- no other tabs/sites -- and it still opens in Facebook Container. Does anyone know why that happens and/or how to stop it from happening? The whole point of Facebook Container is to isolate it from everything else you're doing so it can't track all your other business. What you're reading in the NYT is a lot of business for Facebook to be tracking...

Have Firefox (72.0.2 64-bit) open with one tab. Have "Restore previous session" box NOT checked (ie. don't restore previous session) in Preferences. Running on Xubuntu 18.04.3 Logout of Xubuntu session, while both Firefox and Thunderbird apps are open. Login again, Start Firefox from desktop icon, Firefox reports having trouble restoring previous session, so I select Start New Session Button, whereupon Firefox starts normally.

It never fails. While I am working I keep getting that irritating Notification over-and-over that there is an update. After I quit working I cannot find a way to do the update. What is Mozilla doing? Why do we no longer have control to do Updates Manually? When we want to. Not have them shoved into our face over-and-over? I would love to at least have the option to not have these irritating Notifications. Especially since Mozilla seems to do constant updates. Almost weekly. Thanks

I used to receive all my emails from my primary email account in my secondary account. Now this is not happening. There was some sort of change to my FireFox account that may have stopped the messages being forwarded. I checked and the forward is still set up with the primary email, so there is something blocking it in the secondary email and I can't figure out what?
