I'm having the same issue described in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1147868 and have tried the recommended fix. I have changed the setting reccommended in about:config to false, but about:support still shows 1/1 for multiprocess windows, and I have 6 instances of Firefox running in the process manager (screenshot shows 5, but it has been as many as 7 at once).

Is there anything else I can try to fix this issue? Any help is much appreciated!

During the day I'm logged into a web chat session that is quite an old version. When someone posts something I have to refresh the page to see the new posts. Is there a way to have Firefox refresh automatically? Like every 15 or 30 seconds?

Since yesterday, Youtube hasn't been working on Firefox. The page loads, but then the video itself just won't play. The black screen comes up and then a circle, saying it's loading but it just never does. I've tried:

- Using Firefox in safemode, which caused YouTube to work again. I then re-entered the normal mode an disabled my only add-on (AdBlock Plus), but YouTube still didn't work. - Deleting my cache/history - Doing the windows+r thing, and deleting temporary files, which someone else on the website suggested - Refreshing Firefox

None of these solutions have worked. On my 'plugins' section, Widevine something and OpenH264 something will be installed shortly, but I don't know if that'll change anything, and it's been saying that since yesterday.

As of update to v68 I get errors like these: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at file:///D:/website/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff?v=4.2.0. (Reason: CORS request not http).

What the heck is this? Why did silly mozila messed up the development of local files? How can I bypass that WITHOUT ALTERING my code? It broke fontawesome functionality! Very stupid!

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hi,

Where does Mozilla Firefox saves the files from add-ons? Don't know if it is from Windows update or from Firefox update, but my add-ons settings keeps on resetting and I lose a lot of data from them because of that. And if I know where Firefox saves those files, then I can make a backup for them.

I am trying to get Firefox browser to remember my credit cards. I found the following instruction dated 6/12/18:

"Mozilla is slowly enabling formautofill for credit cars spread out over a number of new version released, and initially for a certain percent of en-US users. The code is inside Firefox but just not enabled for all users. For users who didn't get it enabled automatically that can be done manually like this.

In about:config use the Search at the top for this pref - extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available - then right-click and Toggle that pref to True."

I have not utilized about:config in the browser before. I've used something similar in Thunderbird, but I seem to never remember exactly how to get to that file. I'll write it down this time in hopes I can access it. Firefox v77.0, Windows 10. p.s. When I try to search in Help for "how to find about:config" or any other form of the question, Help simply gives me all results that include "about:config".

Thank you for your time, --Vic

I want to remove ALL the passwords in firefox lockwise. No answers here. This is the worse software design I have ever seen from firefox. The old versions allowed you to delete ALL passwords with one simple click, it looks like the only way I can get passwords removed in firefox lockwise is do so individually. Who was the mental defect that designed firefox lockwise without providing a ONE CLICK way to remove all passwords?

How do I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

It isn't in the File or Tools menu. I get nothing when searching help. Yet FF knows how to do it, say when updating extensions.

I know I can do it by saving my session, exiting, restarting and restoring the session But is there a single command to do all that?

Thanks. --David

I have Firefox set to automatically download updates, but to only install them with my permission. The problem is that Firefox Quantum has a feature that displays a little green icon in the top-right corner of the window indicating that an update is available, and frequently brings up notifications prompting me to update. Most of the time, I can't just drop what I'm doing and restart Firefox, so these notifications are nothing but an annoyance.

Is there a way to disable both the notifications and the little green icon while keeping the "update but don't install" option enabled? I assume that how frequently the notification is displayed is controlled by the app.update.promptWaitTime preference, but that's the only relevant entry I found in about:config. I'm willing to disable this through my userChrome.css if necessary. If I can't find a way to disable these, I'll probably disable searching for updates completely.

Hi,

Recently large file (90+megs) downloads keep failing . The download started normally, downloads for a little, then idles out and fails with no error messages. I'm currently on Windows operating system and i even tried disabling all add-ons and scan functionality in my browser and it's not my IPS giving me grief either. I've also tried with other browsers such as Explorer and chrome and have no problems with them with the same file and location.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is getting really aggravating...

Thanks, - Ult

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.

When trying to access 2 links, that I work with on a daily basis and have done so for the last 2 years, facing the SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP error and not able to access the pages because of Secure Connection Failure.

Have had this issue in the past, but was able to bypass it by clicking on 'Advanced' button in order to add Exception.

Problem is that since 2 days ago, error started coming up but 'Advanced' button is no longer appearing as an option. So, not able to bypass it in order to connect with the pages.

Thx for the help!

I'm fine with multiple tabs and all that, but sometimes I want to keep things in the same tab. But then some web developers don't seem to understand this, and code their pages to force links to open in a new tab (or possibly even a new window, but at least I have that under control). There used to be a perfectly cromulent extension that solved this problem by adding an "open in same tab" option to the context menu, but it has not been updated for FF Quantum and probably never will be. Are there any current extensions that do this? Or is there another way that I can restore this option, and only open new tabs when *I* choose to do so?
