Why are there ten to fifteen background processes running slowing and freezing my computer? I have to go to the task manager and shut most down, hoping I don't hit the one that closes my page. Doesn't matter if I have one tab open or many. I'm ready to quit using Firefox. Every update gets worse. Seems like more and more processes keep building. Sometimes there are so many background processes running I can't count them. Firefox use to run like a dream. Now it's like a giant weight clogging up the gears.

Hi there, got the new and latest and love Mozilla and its on all my devices...However, in the new upgrade,under the old one by or under the little "star" of the browser bar where Http shows up etc... there used to be a drop down menu which allowed you to take a "screen shot" and save and copy which I used often enough to notice it was missing or "elsewhere"? Can you educate me as to where to look for that tool now...It was very convenient as part of the bookmark set up before...thanks..

Latest update blocking website like indeed from loading in information about employers and other sites too. Every update makes firefox worse. I started using other browsers because now some video's don't work either. Last thing I saw was a QUICK pop-up that said something about bits of trackers now being blocked. Well lots of things are being blocked and making browsing a miserable experience. I tried using the standards system in options. Can't find anything to make it work. Allow lots of things and nothing is working except to probably make the web browser more vulnerable to creeps. Please undo your current update and stop making so many updates. I've had three in the last two weeks and every time they screw up the browser more and more. Just stop it!

A question about the option, Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data

Can I use wildcards in the Manage Exceptions List? Than how is it written "address/website" in the input line? Because your Firefox browser doesn't block all of the Tracking Cookies and Advertising Cookies also Third Party Cookies from being download in to the browser cache too! I have other software on my PC that tell me that there's spyware cookies on my computer and gives me a log file of it, and by deleting the cookies doesn't solve the problem or the issue because the information has already been transmitted by the COOKIE or the set of COOKIES to the other websites computers that are link to that webpage or webpages. I would like use wildcards in this operation okay.

Couple Examples of this see below. Adware/Tracking Cookie: potomac-clickstream.capitalone.com [ C:\USERS\NAME\APPDATA\ROAMING\MOZILLA\FIREFOX\PROFILES\DFNBN1BO.DEFAULT-BETA\COOKIES.SQLITE ]. .doubleclick.net [ C:\USERS\NAME\APPDATA\ROAMING\MOZILLA\FIREFOX\PROFILES\ICEI14WC.DEFAULT-RELEASE\COOKIES.SQLITE ]. These cookies are shown as a domain and not as websites. All of the cookies are hidden within this file "COOKIES.SQLITE".

Maybe something like this one that other chrome browsers use: > [*.]potomac-clickstream.capitalone.com <. Or maybe something like this one: > *://*.doubleclick.net/* <. like Internet Explorer uses this to block websites and/or allow websites in its options

I what to prevent these cookies from being download into the Firefox browser on my PC computer!

I note that Amazon are included in your list of "suggested search engines". Amazon is mostly a shop, so why is it allowed an unfair trading opportunity? The solution to this must surely be to allow users to type in the website of their choice? e.g I might want to use the search primarily for books and prefer " https://blackwells.co.uk/bookshop/home"

in this answer [to Firefox 67 broke my profile] , Moderator cor-el has answered - - 5/22/19, 8:52 PM Try to remove compatibility.ini in this profile. You may have to edit prefs.js as well. -

Though he/ she has not elaborated what changes are required to be made in prefs.js to make it work smoothly without corrupting the profile.

Please tell what changes are to be made in prefs.js?

Thanks.

Hello. And why did you delete such a necessary tool as a screenshot from the address bar? Please return it to always be the default. You are moving along the path of development, so why spoil the browser.

Hi. Been having nothing but huge hassles trying to get Firefox to do anything with letting the website access my webcam. I've already read a bunch of articles on this but still no luck getting it to work. I keep putting in the url of the website, pressing enter, but firebox will never show the website in the box below it like your help section said would happen. I have used both the actual url from the website page which is asking me to connect my cam, and I have also shortened that web address to just the website's main address, but still nothing happens when I out that address into the camera setting's search box and then press enter ( I attached 2 screen capture images if that). I have even doubled checked the web address and copy n pasted it into the camera settings search box, pressed enter, but still nothing shows in the box down below it. I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit in case that matters
