Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?

Australian Gov HTTPS (BOM) access problems - Weather/radar Site - Bureau of Meteorology (Australia) – not working under HTTPS and Firefox.

31-August 2021 . Hi all, recently the Australian government , “Bureau of Meteorology” weather and radar – website has stopped working under HTTPS and FireFox – it does work under Microsoft Edge though (Yuk). . Unfortunately even if under the FireFox internal settings - you disable the need for a HTTPS connection – the website still kicks you out anyway – and any direct call to the site (http://www.bom.gov.au) – will just kick you to an endless loop of no achievement – by basically constantly telling you “you cannot use HTTPS” and the HTTP link provided just loops you back to the same place. . For now – the only solution I have found is to leave “HTTPS” on – and create an exception for every single page (very zzzzz). . So for me , I am only excepting and viewing the local weather radar page and getting all other info from other sources. . Machine specs - Win10 Pro , Firefox Version 91.0.2 (64-bit) . I have also (via Edge) – reported this to the “BOM” in Australia, . I hope this helps someone , as I cannot be the only person in Australia trying to access this site – but having to sign up - to report the problem here, I did find more than a bit off putting.

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.

Every Sunday/early Monday the Firefox browser on my Mac shuts down and then re-opens with different settings and search engine. I have been through processes with Apple to ensure "safety" but it still does it. What is causing it and how can I stop it?

I'm sitting here looking at a website that's supposed to have an auto-renewing Let's Encrypt certificate that expired yesterday; the site is serving with active HSTS and an expired cert.

The loss of the VPN software is critical; we need this to work expired certificate or not. (Yes I can tell the difference between an expired cert and a forgery.)

Dear Firefox,

I have relied on your browser for years for business related research and might now be sorry that I ever did.

More specifically, my 300+ tabs are gone and when I tried accessing recently closed windows (in case of user error), they are not there either. To make things even worse, although it would be extremely arduous and time consuming/costly, when I went to check all history, my history now stops in August!!! I cannot even find my one tab extension to check from what point I might need to go back.

Is there anything you can please do to help or is all a lost cause with many hours of work gone and no real way to get them back?

Thank you.

Suddenly, as of last night, my Firefox browser crashes within seconds of my clicking on its icon. There isn't enough time for me to try to do anything within the window. I really don't know a lot about computers, so the info in the Help forum doesn't work for me. I have liked using Firefox, so my ideal would be to get it fixed. If that doesn't work, I have used Firefox for a LONG time and have many bookmarks that I would rather not lose. Can you help? Don Frew
