I have noticed that my Firefox browser has become so slow that it is nearly unusable.

I have noticed that Mozilla has been offering their VPN for $5/month. Has the company slowed down the browser to sell this feature?

Or is there something in the Microsoft updates that have slowed down the browser.

I really like Firefox but I have reverted Chrome simply to get my work done without waiting for Firefox to load. I really am not a big fan of Google and I really find Microsoft to be, well, Microsoft.

Several days ago (approximately 12-3-20) my Internet Download Manager add-on stopped working. Removing it and reinstalling it by using a link provided by IDM does not work. It will work only if I open the webpage where I intend to download (e.g.--YouTube) BEFORE I reinstall the add-on and only for as long as that page remains open. Closing the page and then reopening it somehow deactivates IDM, as it will no longer link to the video I want to download. Have tried everything i can think of to solve this, including deactivating all other add-ons and by uninstalling and reinstalling the IDM program itself. I also unchecked the "block popup windows" management tool within Firefox itself. Anyone have any ideas what is happening? Initially, I also received the error message added below, but as far as i can tell, none of my other programs are set to block IDM. The error message no longer appears.

I'm sure many will recall this symptom, from years past, that occasionally re-emerges

You close Firefox, and want to relaunch, but nothing happens. There is no accompanying message announcing that "Firefox is already running, but not responding". You must "end task" in the Task Manager.

Also, why are there so many instances of Firefox running in the Task Manager. Is that related to the problem?

This has been happening for a while now, before 88.01. Is there a fix? ________________________________________ Firefox 88.01, Windows 20h2

My computer crashed and when I openend firefox, all my tabs were gone, about 140, it was impossible to open recently closed tabs or previous session. I found about 20 files that might contain all the tabs but none of them are opened properly in the scrounger at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html When I try to export it uncompressed, i get the message that the context of the box does not look like json, that's true because the box is empty after opening all 20 files. Even though one file even is 1.16mb. Does anyone has other advice on at least getting the url's from the file? You would expect at least one file to work right?

Firefox has been my browser of choice for many years, and over all those years I've had one nagging persistent problem with it that there seems no possible fix for and it will not go away no matter what measures I try. Backpaging takes several attempts to work when it should just work the first time. I've had to try up to 7 times to get back to the previous page, both with the button and my mouse. I know this has been a problem for years for others too, because I searched on it, and Mozilla seems incapable of doing anything about it, or perhaps they are just unwilling to bother with it. Which is it? Do they just not care, or is this beyond their ability to resolve?

When using Firefox on my 2018 MacBook Pro the cursor will either jump to the address bar or close the window in which I have been entering text. This has been happening since I got the MacBook Pro. This does not happen with other browsers, only Firefox. It has continued with this issue through several OS updates as well as Firefox updates.
