This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

I'm using firefox 88.0.1, Windows 10. I also use "Adblock plus" and "YouTube enhancer". When I watch a YouTube video, it almost always forces the highest resolution. I don't mean "default", I mean "force". When I change the resolution to 480p (or anything else) it immediately reverts to the highest setting. Then it buffers (preloads) the video, using much more bandwidth than just the "per minute" toll for 1080p, because it is using bandwidth for the preloading as well. Is anyone else experiencing this (I think it started just this month, May 2021, or not long before that)?

I really hope there's a way to sort the tabs/windows listed in the Windows drop-down menu. It would be pretty cumbersome, time-wasting, and absurd that Firefox, in 2021, makes us look up & down for a certain tab, due to their being shown in completely random order. Is there a way to put them in either alphabetical or chronological order?

Hi,

As title says, I'm trying to simply add my add-ons next to my profile and settings as it appears on Chrome for example in the top right corner.

I'm using some add-ons which cannot be used like Privacy Badger etc but I got some which can be like for instance a password manager (that I need to configure) or an IP address detection.

Please, can someone help me?

I know it must something really simple but after many research I can't find the way to set it up. I feel like a idiot with this request but don't really know if it's a bug or something.

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04

Thanks guys!

I've been using Firefox for a long time now, and I seem to have an absurd issue where I've updated Firefox and it's turned into Firefox for Mobile. Everything is horrendously bloated, and slow to use. Tabs take up an enormous amount of horizontal space, and that's actually much less of a problem than the amount of vertical space that's being taken up.

I went into the customisation settings, and believed I'd solved my problem when I could swap between "Normal" and "Touch". I believe these have been mislabelled, as they actually appear to be "Mobile" and "Micro-screen". I've been able to re-enable "Normal" through about:config, although I know that's going to be removed soon, at which point I'll have to find a desktop browser again. Although even this is too large and bloated for some strange reason.

However, while that at least temporarily solves the issue of the tab bar's height being incorrectly rendered at twice the size a sensible UX designer would put it as for use on a desktop machine, it doesn't fix the side menu which also suddenly has this absurd bloating between options. I now actually need to scroll in order to see anything below "Settings".

My main question would be: Does anybody at Mozilla use a desktop PC? Or are you all building this on a mobile IDE? Because I can't imagine a developer looking at this on their desktop and saying "Ah, yes, I've removed a lot of visual space. This will surely help me."

Since updating to the latest version of Firefox (89.0), I seem to have lost a feature that I had with the old version: previously I could click just to the right of the search bar and find options that enabled me easily to copy or email a link for whatever I was looking at. Can that helpful feature be restored? If so, how? It's unfortunate when an update leaves us with less capability than we had with the previous version. Thanks for any help.

Hi, i noticed that the youtube page is not loading properly, yesterday it worked just fine.

When i open youtube.com, i can see all the recommendations and thu images as well, but my side bar is not loading and if i click my profile it won't load too.

If i open a video, sometimes it wont load entirely, other times it display an error message that something wen't wrong or i can watch the video, but the comments section is not loaded, and if i open the side panel or my profile it wont load :(

Other browsers works fine. What have i done so far:

1. Restart PC 2. Open in private window 3. Disable all extensions 4. refresh firefox 5. uninstall firefox with all files (IOBit uninstaller)

Nothing helped...

From yesterday i didn't updated my pc or even turned off. It was in sleep mode the whole time... I don't know what to do next :/
