I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

I never delete history! But I noticed this since long time ago, e.g. I want to go on a website - I was recently on (if I closed it already) but it is not in immediate search history - it happened to me multiple times!

Also now: I was searching for one keyword a lot, like 50 times and in history are barely like 7 hits. No idea why it is not there!!!

Please help.

So, the problem is exactly what the title describes. Videos would start playing immediately upon opening in a new tab. The issue appeared a couple days ago. I haven't changed any settings in firefox or in YouTube. Also, a friend of mine tried on his own computer to play videos in a new tab using chrome and the same thing happened, videos don't start. I guess it's a YT problem, but I would like a more experienced opinion. Googling didn't help, as every result was either very old, or it had to do with browser/account settings. Any help is appreciated, thanks a lot in advance!

"Pocket List" has disappeared in the drop down menu under the "library" icon where it used to be not more than a few days ago. It's not under the Bookmarks icon, either. the "Pocket" icon is in the menu bar, and I can save items to Pocket, but can no longer locate the page with the articles. "View List" does appear when you click the Pocket icon, but it also saves whatever page you're on whether or not you want to save it.

Hi, just have a few questions.

1. Can I have 1 inbox where all emails are sent to? I know I can use the Unified settings but this does not merge all the emails into 1 single inbox.

2. Is there anyway I can have all the information like 'subject, correspondents, date..' etc, condensed or layout more practically rather than having a separate column for every head?

3. Finally, My Thunderbird freezes when trying to load emails. I have about 50,000 unread emails but I have a 1tb SSD and 34gb RAM. Any idea if this is a bug or something I need to set up?

Thanks

I create a new blank message, type something into the subject field, save, and close the window. My drafts folder displays the new message, but instead of my subject line there are three dots. When I open the draft again, the subject line indeed consists of three dots. Replacing the dots again by some text does not solve the problem, after saving it will still have three dots. Thus, I cannot save subject lines in drafts. The same for templates. What's going wrong here?

This is on Windows 10, newest Thunderbird release version 78.9.1 (32-bit).

Usually, when you close Mozilla Firefox or shut down your computer, you can restore the before closed bookmarks while you start again Mozilla Firefox. In my case, Mozilla Firefox automatically updated itself and I could not open again my bookmarks (the history was gone...).

When holding Ctrl and clicking the back arrow at the top left manually, it opens a new tab with the URL of the previous page, as it's supposed to. But for some reason, when I hold Ctrl and press the back button on my mouse, it doesn't do the same. This is quite annoying, as sometimes I need to navigate back, but keep the current page open as well, and this forces me to move my mouse cursor all the way to the top left and back again

When i click on the google maps icon (google uk home page>dots in top right hand conrner>google maps icon)or type google maps into the search field then click on the google maps link I end up on the Sheffield Hallam University log in page (a bookmark from a while ago). This has started happening in the last few weeks.

If I use Edge then everything happens as expected and google maps opens.

I have tried refreshing firefox and disabling add-ons, neither works.

Using Windows 10 home V20H2, upto date firefox.

For some reason all my toolbar bookmarks have disappeared from the toolbar line below the search box. View Bookmarks Toolbar is checked 'Always Show'. I tried customizing and restoring defaults but still don't show, although the toolbar line disappeared and option was changed from Always Show to 'Only Show In New Tab'

I am using Private Browsing, although it does same even if I don't. So frustrating

What happened? Was a new version released 4/12/2021?
