This function worked until a week ago, and still works perfectly on my laptop. It also works fine in Edge and IE. My homepage, My.Yahoo.Com is personalized with several content boxes, one of which is "Today" (news). Firefox either won't load the content, or it won't work properly (scrolling, etc.). I can no longer preview the individual news headlines. However, if I remove the non working content box and then add the it back, it works fine. Once I leave the page and then return, the same problem returns. My system is a desktop with WIN10 Pro 64-bit, 16gb, all latest updates, and Firefox v79.0.

Under options, privacy and security, History: Use custom settings for history, and finally, Settings for "Clear history when Firefox closes"- I would like to politely request an exceptions feature to this auto-clear setting.

I use Lastpass frequently, and up until now, I delete *everything* under this History setting when firefox closes. I've done this for years, but I'm growing very tired of logging into Lastpass with every browser close/reopen. And this auto-clear feature also wipes the local file necessary for account recovery if 2FA isn't possible for whatever reason (I've had this happen when a phone broke and I couldn't get to google auth).

I just want to be able to get rid of everything on browser exit, except for anything Lastpass related. Is this possible to create instead of employing an extension?

Hi there,

I just moved to another notebook after the past one dead, and I have to recover my past addons from an external hdd. I just found all the .xpi files that contain any single add-on, but it's not clear to me how should I manage them so that Firefox will instantly recognize the addons. Can you please help me?

Thank you

Hi there,

I just moved to another notebook after the past one dead, and I have to recover my past bookmarks from an external hdd. I just tried to convert the .json file into an .html one, but the problem is that with this way I have to manually reput on the library thousands of websites by clicking the link, while I'm looking for an option to automatically put all the websites in the library. Is it possible to do so?

Thank you

I'm trying to switch from opera to Firefox, as title says, Firefox is slow when live commenting is enabled on bilibili.com when watching videos, it gets worse if you play video in full-screen mode, and CPU is about 15% higher than opera even not in full-screen.

I've tested on other two similar website: douyu.com and huya.com , turns out the issue is only with bilibili.com, I found that the live comment feature is implemented by canvas on bilibili.com while the other two sites uses css3 instead, and I simply tested canvas benchmark with benchmark1 and benchmark2 and the result conforms my guess -- opera performs much better than Firefox.

I've tried toggle hardware acceleration and safe mode, no significant improvement observed

Is it possible to go to webpages in Firefox history without them refreshing? That is, to see what they said on the date that I opened them? (And not updated or refreshed information) I am trying to document what a website said when I opened it two weeks ago, and not what it says now. I am afraid of it refreshing, and would like to prevent the refresh from happening. Thank you!

Please, I have read your articles, started in safe mode and this freezing continues. I am unable to type a complete sentence without freezing. This happens in Outlook email, or the search bar.

This does not happen in Word or other programs only in Firefox. This started after the latest update to version 79.0. I am a simple user and not a tech person. I’ve used Firefox as my browser for years. Perhaps this is a conflict with the new Microsoft update version 2004 home version. Maybe they want to force to change to Edge.

I have a print screen of the task manger showing usage. But not sure if that will help. Please help me, this is so frustrating. I’m tying this in Word to cut and paste into your box. I tried to upload two pdf's would not allow.

Two Updates ago, FF deleted years of Bookmarks, Passwords and Add-ons, and maybe more that I'm not aware of. Only a small handful of Bookmarks were left. Is there any way to get them back? And, no, FF did not create a file on my desktop with the old FF settings, or whatever it was called.

Firefox updated this morning for me, and now my search bar doesn't work (all search engines were cleared) and I can't find Google as an available search engine to add back. Further, when I do get search results from whatever engine I use, when I right click and say open in a new tab, nothing happens. Really scratching my head on this one since I've never had issues like this before.

Hello. I am getting the "Gah. Your tab just crashed." error multiple times every hour. I've tried to go back and submit error reports using "about:crashes" as I saw on a forum, but they won't submit. Process just spins infinitely. I saw on one forum that an app called "bitdefender" was causing problems, but I don't have that one (I don't think). I don't see any other forum threads that relate.

Any help would be tremendously appreciated!

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

Gmail is allowing me to download a file and open it right away (either in Firefox, or in Preview etc), but if I choose to "save file" (to a specific location, without opening it right away), it doesn't do anything. This is a relatively new problem, perhaps related to an update? Has anyone else had this issue or any suggestions for how to fix it?
