Every time I close Firefox, whether normally or using Allt-F4, there is a short pause (1 - 2 seconds) then around 20 - 30 seconds of intense disk activity which locks everything else on my PC (Win 10 pro 64). If I hard shut down the pc (ie, switch off the power) there is no adverse effect on firefox after restart, so whatever it's doing is apparently unnecessary anyway. How do I cure this, it's irritating me intensely - enough to seriously consider using another browser

A routine update from Firefox version 99 to version 100 caused Firefox to quit loading web pages, including the Settings page. Firefox appears to load normally but will not display any web page. The only thing that works consistently is Help/About Firefox. System: Lenovo E495 (AMD Ryzen 5 3500U) running Windows 10 Pro 21H2, build 19044.1706 Symptoms:

  • Version 100 and higher work correctly in trouble-shooting (safe) mode
  • Refresh does not resolve the problem
  • Manually removing extensions (NoScript and Cookie AutoDelete) does not resolve the problem
  • Uninstalling Firefox and existing profiles (all Mozilla folders in AppData/*), then making a clean install of version 100 does not resolve the problem
  • Removing version 100 and reinstalling version 99.0.1 restores normal operation (repeatable with higher versions)
  • Updating from version 99.0.1 to version 100.0.2 or version 101.0 does not resolve the problem
  • I have not tried removing any Mozilla registry keys

My problem is this:

If I click on the open new tab button, and then I keep my cursor there, such that I get the little tooltip "Open a new tab (Ctrl+T)..." , Firefox will stop the address bar from updating---it won't show my keyboard inputs, not will it search, or do anything else. This will resolve itself after I move my cursor away from the open new tab button and the tooltip stops showing, even my inputs will appear there.

This quite annoying, especially when opening a tab to search for something quickly...

I want to be able to close Firefox and have all cookies and site data removed - but I want to keep my history.

Checking the box to do just this in 'Privacy & Security' will delete cookies when I close Firefox - but all the site data remains. Under 'History' I have 'use custom settings' enabled, as well as 'remember browsing and download history'. I've tried various permutations of this, but can't get it to do what Firefox says it will.

Being able to do this is one of the main reason I want to use Firefox, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to manually delete both cookies and site data.

Any suggestions to try to delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes, but remember history?

Amazon.com works on Firefox on my second desktop computer and on my iPhone. It does not work properly on my primary desktop, this one It does work on my desktop using Edge. Everything in Amazon.com works on this desktop except I cannot view my previous orders, the link in the upper right corner ""returns and orders." It begins to load but the orders do not load. I cannot see any of them.

I uninstalled Firefox, ran Ccleaner to clean the registry, then it's Health feature, I probably should have restarted after doing that.

I installed a new download of Firefox twice; it fails.
