I can be actively browsing or be afk, it doesn't matter it seems, but sometimes tab would just crash. Can be active tab or some other, I'm kinda lost. I suspect it's hardware acceleration related, but I would like to fix the issue rather than turn it off.

Some reports:

bp-7cf2d617-22a2-4f6e-ad3b-db92f0190327

bp-682cc861-90c0-4186-a369-f30a80190325

I would love to find a reason and a fix for that. Using latest nvidia drivers and latest firefox.

Something that I think first began happening in the last 4-6 months. I can fix it by doing the Firefox "refresh/restart" but it keeps coming back. I had to do a refresh on March 10th and now I'm having the same problem again. Basically it's unable to download anything. Email attachments, files from a website. A pdf from a facebook chat log. Firefox acts just like it does when you normally go to download a file. Brief pause, some activity in the bottom left corner. Everything appears exactly right except instead of that little extra window popping up to confirm how you want to save it or where. That window never pops up and nothing happens. No files show up in my download history or default download locations. I only use 3 add ons. Firefox Lightbeam, Flagfox and noscript. But even if I disable all of them and restart my browser the problem persists. So basically I'm opening up other browsers and copy pasting the URL's into them to quickly download stuff because my preferred browser keeps losing the ability to download things :/ and it's annoying to keep doing the restart option and toggle the few menu settings/background I have back on.

I followed these instructions:

In Firefox browser, type about:profiles in url bar. Under the profile that is in use. Click Open Folder on the Root Directory row. If that folder does not have a chrome folder, create a folder, name it chrome. In the chrome folder, create a file named userChrome.css

Then I put in the code, but nothing has changed.

Here's the code. If someone can look at it for me, that would be great. I didn't make it, but it seems to work for everyone else who uses it.

I purchase a Microsoft surface pro 4 and I used firefox . somehow the tablet overheated to the point of melting the glue tape and releasing the lcd panel from the box and cooking the lcd panel to the shape of a turtle shell. now I have a surface pro 6 and when I use firefox even with minimal tabs the tablet overheats severely. this is ridiculous why does firefox cause the cpu to overclock and overheat and WORSE OF ALL THIS IS NON STOP

there is no doubt that firefox is the cause. I am using edge and chrome and the tablet is colder than my fridge.

why this cpu abuse.

This is really noticeable on some forums. The edge of text font turns slightly blurry (so the text camouflages a bit into the background), and when you click on the text, it disappears magically?

If I disable hardware aceleration to fix it, YouTube videos have horizontal lines in dark content, so it's not a solution.

I continually backup my bookmarks since they have been lost far too many times. Mostly FF reverts to an older version - with no clear indication which one that will be. Since 12 March I have bookmarked several times but the system reverted to 12 March every time an update or similar occured. Checking the bookmarksbackup and bookmarks folders I find the newer sets of bookmarks have never been stored. So when I try to backup and check the folder the backup should be in (tried a variety of options just to see what happens) the file has NOT been written. I do not want to lose the current set and will therefore not force a new import by deleting locals.sqlite. So I need a fix to be able to store the bookmarks I have now. HTML does not work either, by the way.

I am running Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine, up to date at 1 April 2019. (No this is not an April Fool's joke!)

Some time ago, Firefox (and Thunderbird) stopped saving logins and passwords and as I had better things to do, I just put up with it. Now I would like to sort the problem out, but can find nothing specific on this problem. The closest advice is at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_make-firefox-remember-usernames-and-passwords

On this page the advice is all about clicking an a key icon. Problem is: the latest version of Firefox has no key icon.

When I check under Options-> Privacy & Security->Logins & Passwords the box to tick for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is faded out and does not work.

I have tried to attach screen shots of the instructions described, but they will not load.

I have looked all over Firefox Help but all the answers direct you back to the about instruction about clicking the key icon which is simply not present on my screen.

Other thoughts:-

Could Avast Free Antivirus have given me a 'free trial' that has upset the system?

Could Duckduckgo be in conflict with Firefox about privacy, i.e. password management?

Any suggestions?

So how do I fix my extensions as mozilla has rolled out fix in a full update. This is not something I can do unless they are going to pay for it lol...

I just want my old firefox and extensions back lol... otherwise this is absolutely useless to me and might as well move on to waterfox or another browser, which is sad as I have been with firefox since beginning.
