Many bugs and crashes with Firefox
Only way to update Firefox is via https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release Which always shows the wrong language. Only way to update Thunderbird is via https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/all/#product-desktop-release Here, I can click on letter from my language and download the setup package. After this update installation was done, the Help --> About (program name) window show the program is last version. But not seems not always the last version, like version x.x.01 to x.x.02, then tries to install this newer small version and gets stuck in the same loop or corruption.
Missing file(s) and/or some strange error message after I clicked on the shortcut from the program. Another run from this "update" setup is needed. Remove a or all "Firefox.exe" from the Taskmanager list.
Already from earlier versions of Firefox. And also Thunderbird too. This bug seems to sit deep inside the programs. I should be to use Firefox, Thunderbird, Notepad together, with having a some folders open. Switching between them can be annoying slow. Takes longer time be before responding. I'm seeing empty white or black windows. Only last selected section is visible, has the text and smaller pictures. I can have Firefox and Thunderbird left open for hours and later finding one or both programs are closed by itself. No reason, no permission given to do that. Add a new tab or click on a current site, there is no (fast) respond. Same for buttons, filters and filling in forms on a site. One program can pull the other program in closing to when the one is crashing. Also Windows will show several error messages about programs are using to much memory and must be closed. If this has programs listed, then Firefox seems to appear most here of the programs I'm using.
Updating doesn't fix anything Using the safe mode and new profiles are no long time solutions, every time anything is gone or nog working better.
It seems you must have 2 profiles running at same time when you want read something and not switching back between every minute or so. If 1 is near crashing, you have still the other one running.
Same for responding on clicking, using filters, buttons and sending forms. Clicking on those (annoying) accept (popup) windows. Unable to login or confirm an (security) action like this with a word or number given via e-mail. Might be something for the site. When you need to use Private Browsing for this.
"Seems fine here, but something with you". Refresh page doesn't fix it. Wait and try again later, how long? Firefox should block these sites.
I had Firefox running for some hours, these sites are still stuck in "loading" or something else.
Now, I created again a new profile and again this doesn't fix them. Even more bugs and stranger. Again lost everything, settings, sites, installing dictionaries and add-ones. Stupid.
That makes it to post my problems here.
In Settings (via about:preferences#search), there are no search engines (Google, Wikipedia, ect) in the list, who should be there by default. Also there's no default search engine selected, the list therefor is small and empty.
And the about: .... pages. While with a new profile I can visit those sites, but right click menu is bugged.
Windows PC. Firefox version 117.0 x64. Via Help --> About Firefox, because about:support doesn't show the version and build.

I've noticed this issue happening randomly, some of my toolbar bookmarks listed on the sidebar just up and disappear from view. As if they were never there. But I know they're still saved because when I click to Manage Bookmarks and check them there, they show up fine. The toolbar just randomly hides them for whatever reason, and I can only fix it by closing Firefox and opening it again.
I'm on the current version. I remember accessing about:support and clicking on Verify Integrity while trying troubleshoot some other issue, but don't know if that could've caused it though.

Hello FF community. I come here for a question, maybe a confirmation (I'm gonna try to be as short as possible ).
I'm using for years infamous Aris-t2 customCSS. I'm about to "jump" from FF v88 on my desktop to V115.0.3esr. I tested everything on my laptop, and set everything on the customCSS so it looks like my actual V88. It's almost identical, but one thing is bugging me: the scrollbar.
Scrollbar on FF115 isn't the same anymore than in V88 as you can see on the screenshot I posted (test scrbr for V115, scrbr2 for V88). The clean one with "3lines grab button" I actually use is less "eye catchy" than the new one. I've made some researches, and apparently, starting FF V97 about 2 years ago, scrollbar has been change to use W10 "flat like" one, and at FF106+, every older code was apparently removed. I tried to changed a few things in about:config, like "widget.non-native-theme.enabled" or multiple commands about scrollbar, nothing changed.
So I just wanted to know if someone could confirm me that the old scroll bar I use is now impossible to get back, or if there's a command I miss that could do the thing.
Thanks, have a nice day ^^

Speed test on a freshly booted machine is 100/100Mbps ... very often after viewing a youtube video in Firefox, this Speed test can slow down to below 20Mbps which results in a poor streaming experience ... I have a 150/150 fiber connection and the modem speed test doesn't change ... nothing to do with anything downstream ... not running anything else except FF ... always running with the latest up to date version(s) ... things of note: the process count goes up when this occurs ... even if FF is restarted it doesn't resolve this issue ... only a reboot resolves the issue ... when rebooting there is always some UNKNOWN process that needs to be manually terminated before the reboot process runs.
I suspect one of the multilayered (FF appears to open multiple sessions with streaming) processes may be getting widowed and left running and not releasing resources which causes less and less bw to be available ... this appears to occur mostly if I either Fast Forward or try to click forward or backward on a stream timeline suggesting to me that the current timeline may not be closing properly ... process manager doesn't reveal any processes linked to firefox but there are numerous svchost processes which I expect may be involved
Are there other ways/tools to narrow down this issue so the Mozilla team might be able to fix this ... I use FF exclusively but this has become more and more of an annoyance.
My i7 2TB 2.6GHz 8GB laptop is unable to move beyond W7 64b pro but I have had the same experience on a W10 64b Pro machine so very skeptical that this is an OS related issue.
Ultimately if FF kept track of the PIDs it opens it should be able to force them to close if they refuse to close on their own. Kill Process tree ... or ... perhaps provide a log that is user accessible identifying opened PIDs so that a user could manually kill widow processes without having to reboot.

Hi. Is there a way to customize the order of Firefox headers and footers on printed pages (including print-to-pdf)?
I prefer the header to be url only, in the center. While the footer has page on left; title in the center, and date on the right.
This used to be easy to accomplish with print options in older versions, then -- as the print dialog changed (and actually improved a lot in most *other* ways) I had to turn to about:config modifications like those described in the 1/27/21 reply here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323433. But now I can't seem to find any way to have any control over print headers besides "on" and "off."
One problem I find with having both page title and url on top is that these can be long, causing one or both to be truncated.

hello, many years ago, I used to be able to keep my browser history for years. now it only saves about 1 year and 6 months. since it is my memory, I found it very helpful. I can't find any information on how to customize that feature so it is never deleted. I'm using firefox 115.2.1esr on windows 7. thanks a lot for your help.

Firefox worked fine until the latest update 115.3esr, at time it slows to a crawl... I am now sick and tired of Mozilla and Firefox, they are about to get the boot - my style, I've used them since about version 2.
Looking in the task manager Mozilla makes it look a disgrace, at time it's hard to get a fix on some entry's because they bounce up and down.
Firefox.exe 45,24K Firefox.exe 3,16K Firefox.exe 27,484K Firefox.exe 7,392K Firefox.exe 7,344K Firefox.exe 15,735K Firefox.exe 7,320K Firefox.exe 169,932K, I round it off to about 250MB
Does these look about right? Why can't they just have one .exe? (Win 7 Pro x64)
