I want to select folder color and title color.

I can't find a way for suggesting way. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/966900 this topic not- up to date. I couldn't found help section.

whatever, How can i sent this request to dev-ops team?

(Pop!_OS distro used) I use a handful of resources to monitor my laptop's resources. The attached image is from the htop command (note that I've been using the laptop at most an hour, and it was compltely powered off before. Unsure why it says such high times.). Over the past four-ish months, I've seen firefox's new-window command (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window) function very strangely. Two instances of the command randomly run for extended periods of time (anywhere from a few seconds to two or three minutes, often towards the longer end), taking up ~100% of the cpu usage for each given one second interval (the time my htop is configured to check). While I'm aware htop records cpu statistics extremely different than task manager (frankly, I'm not quite sure how it measures), this cpu spike takes place with other irregular fluctuations in my laptop, which says to me that the command is in fact doing something. When the cpu spikes occur, I see my cpu temperature rise up to 80 degrees Celsius, and it's frequency hit it's cap for only a handful of threads, while the rest stay completely unchanged.

To clarify the extent of the randomness when I say the commands run randomly: this happens without any pattern that I can identify. I've had anywhere from 1 to 10 tabs open, resting in the background from anywhere between a couple minutes to half an hour, and two new-window commands will run, unprompted, as described above. I've been scrolling through an article, and out of no where, the twin commands run. I've loaded up webpages and the commands have run. I've been watching videos, simply opened a new tab (ironic given the command name), just anything you can do on the web browser, and the commands have run. And there have been days where this issue doesn't happen at all. This can happen numerous times while I'm on firefox. It could happen once, followed by a lot of intervals of the commands running, or it could be a while before the next time it happens.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb to me is that, as I mentioned at the end of the first paragraph, I see one thread 'catch' and cause this spike. It's a random thread, it can be a different one each time this happens during a given session on firefox, but I've only every noticed it to be one thread.

Not sure what's up. I tried to be as detailed as possible since I could find anything about this on these forums.

I am using Firefox 87 with windows 10. Autofill passwords has always worked, suddenly it no long fills in the password. I have all the correct checks for autofill logon and autofill password, and for FF to ass for both of them on a new site. the information is properly listed in the program list.

I have tried everything i could think of , went to about;config made sure the settings were correct, asked help support page and forums. tried everything tried tried everything what was suggested to solve issue, BUT autofill password still does not work, i have thought of using another program manager, but not sure if that is a good idea thank you very much I sure could use some help with this............ Only other thing i can think is resetting FF but still not sure that would work either. Allen Millner allen-tina@comcast.net

Firefox V88 lädt Seiten quälend langsam oder gar nicht, trotz nagelneuem Macbook (Big Sur) und frischer Neuinstallation FF!! Bei der neuen Hardware sollte der FF flitzen, aber es ist genau anders rum. So langsam war ein FF nicht mal vor 10 Jahren. Wo liegt das Problem? Bei Big Sur? Bei Apple? Bei FF? Bei mir? Dann höchstens am Synchronisieren, denn sonst habe ich nix mit dem frisch geladenen und installierten FF gemacht. So ist er unbrauchbar. Safari läuft schnell. Google Chrome läuft schnell. Das alte Macbook (Mojave) mit FF78 läuft schnell.

Und Feedback an Mozilla ist unmöglich! Der Link zum Feedback auf der Feedback-Seite führt nur auf diese Seite zurück, und eben nicht zu einer möglichen Eingabe für ein Feedback. ( https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page ) Ist Feedback nicht mehr gewollt?

Wer kann gegen meine Enttäuschung was tun? bzw. wie kann dieses Enttäuschtsein über diesen FF wieder in Freude am FF gewandelt werden? Danke

I use vit.codetantra.com website for my university exams, where we have to upload whatever we write on a sheet using our phone. When taking pictures from the website camera through my phone, it significantly reduces the image quality, to the extent that it's barely readable. This doesn't happen in Chrome mobile app though. The website has two options for image uploading -- Low Memory camera mode and Normal Mode. This option is available on Chrome but in Firefox it by default uses low memory camera mode and hence a blurry picture. I don't understand why is this happening. Kindly help.

Hi,

After an update on Firefox 87.0 the pop-up exceptions defined are not working in private mode. A yellow bar appears that tells me that prevent the popups. If I choose to allow the popups with the button on the left of url then the url is added on exceptions/allowed window with a ^privateBrowsingId=1 marked in the url. However this is not persisted on a next run of firefox on private mode.

If someone have setup exceptions is there for a reason and should not be broken in private mode. I also cannot add ^privateBrowsingId=1 on my own in the url on the exceptions, as it appeared as %5 in exceptions and it does not work to allow pop-up.

Thanks

Dear Mozilla community,

Before I wrote this question, I read a lot of posts but non of them provided answer to my problem, despite I saw some other having similar problem. Here is the problem. I'm using Firefox as browser. When using "outlook.office.com/mail/" (the email of my university) or "outlook.live.com/mail/" (my personal hotmail email), the spelling option and dictionary choices don't appear when I write click on the text field. The consequences are that the spelling check doesn't work. This problem appears only with outlook services. For example, in the text field I'm currently typing in while writing this message, the option does appear (as you can see in the second attached print screen), but when I do the same in outlook, this option don't appears anymore (as you can see in the first attached print screen). As you can see, the contextual options after right clicking on the text field are different and I don't understand why.

I have two dictionaries installed (French and English) and they work perfectly everywhere except in outlook. I read some Microsoft posts about that but what they explain is that the spelling check in outlook is all based on the browser options.

I'm not sure of when this problems append but I know the Firefox spelling check used to work before even in outlook. So I don't know if a update or something else created that but it's very bugging me and I might have to leave Firefox is I can't solve this problem.

If anyone who faced similar problems found a solution, I would be very glad to hear it! Thanks a lot

The absolute weirdest problem. If I'm on the Brita website (brita.com) and type in another url to navigate away, I press enter, and it just refreshes the same page I was on. This happens across the brita.com domain, regardless of what url I type in, even if I type the full url (including https://www.), and if I click a search or url suggestion in the dropdown, even in a private window, anything. This has never happened to me with any other website.

Obviously I can just close the tab and open another, but this is strange enough I figured I'd see if anyone could figure it out (or at least replicate my experience). I would appreciate any insights!

Recently Windows forced an update to 20H2. All my other programs display font okay. However Firefox (desktop -- latest version) does not display fonts properly. The letters flash between thin and normal.

Strangely enough when I took a screen shot to demonstrate the weird font display the fonts were perfectly fine in the screen shot.

I took a picture with my phone. In the image one can see difference in the width of the two L in "all" As mentioned this is only happening in Firefox.

Thanks for any clues.
