Both my PCs were downloading from you tube perfectly, until two days ago, when the download button on both PCs disappeared, almost at the same time. As the people at Video Droid do not have an answer, I must assume the problem lies with Firefox. I hope we are not returning to the days when every update from Mozilla fucked up. Kindly explain how I can fix this mess, or how I can backdate to an earlier Firefox that worked properly. To be quite honest with you, I’m not the slightest bit interested in your new smart arse add ons, and tricks, all I want is a browser that works for me, not one that loses me days working time because your programmers can’t get their shit together.

Hi guys, hope someone might be able help, much appreciated! My organization forced us to auto-update win10 & it seemed they install "another" firefox than the one I normally used (Pic 2 - Firefox Quantum) & it seemed my firefox I normally used also was updated with this [Pic 1 - 78.10.1esr (64-bit)]. This is a mess!!!! After this erupted updates, everything was gone, seemed like Firefox has created new profile (afresh) for those "2" firefox.

I was digging on this forum, none was helping. So... 1. There was NO "old firefox" folder on desktop. 2. Tons of articles about "about:profiles" but not sure how it worked as it did not work for me, I was trying to look in "both" Firefox and click "Launch profile in new browser" rather than go to my "old profile", it seemed to create "default-esr-1...2...3 etc" as in Pic 3 & 4.

I am not very techie, pls someone could give some advice how to solve this a step by step would be wonderful.

Although I love using Firefox, this is sooo stressful & I'm pulling my hair out!

PS. Chrome on the other hand, had no issues with this at all, after the win10 update, Chrome just simple retained everything & let me restore all of session I was working on before, nothing lost from fav & apps either.

Hello

I've been using linux for 3 years now but never before fedora, i just installed Fedora 34 KDE and im having issues ive never had before, im wondering why and what i can do about it.

for example, ctrl+c seems not to be working. i have to look up a lot of guides and copy a lot of commands from websites using firefox and i want to paste them in the terminal but its finnicky, often doesnt, i cant quite get a hang of when it does and why sometimes it refuses.

another issue is ctrl+w works to close tabs but ctrl+f4 doesnt, but alt+f4 does work. what the hell?

I'm not sure what is causing this, but for a while now I have been having problems when typing and this happens quite a bit now. First I'm not very proficient at typing, I use the hunt and peck method, I have to look at the keyboard to type. But it seems like when I hit certain keys like: W, E, R, T, Y or in that area of keys, things happen I do not want. For one, I had to type this in my email and copy and paste here, because the tab that this was open in, kept reloading and I would lose everything I typed. Even in the email, several times when I hit the E R keys a window would pop up asking if I wanted to leave the page. Or what I was typing would show up in the search block at the top of the email screen. When I'm typing out a comment in YouTube, the tab will reload and I lose everything. Sometimes in my gmail account, typing an email to someone, or in another site like YouTube or a companies website typing out a question or answering one, if the tab doesn't reload, a Bing search popup window opens.I thought it might be my keyboard as it was quite old, but I just replaced it with a new one and the problem has gotten worse. I've run a virus scan and every other scan on Avast that I have and there is nothing and Avast is current. I have the Windows 10 Hotkeys turned off. This is getting really annoying. I do not know if it is a Windows problem or a Firefox problem or a computer problem. So far no one has been able to give me an answer.Are there Shortcut Keys in Firefox, more in Windows 10 other than the hot keys, or is there some other program I need to disable?Please Get back with me on this.Robert

I left my FF browser open by accident when I went to bed, no other applications were open. This morning I realized my GPU was sitting at 55c when I looked at the thermistor sensor in the hardware monitor report in precision X1.

As soon as i closed FF the temps went back to 25c in less than 1 minute.

So what is FF doing that consumes so much GPU even when idle?

I had a 2080TI GPU go bad two months ago after sitting idle overnight - now I know why - it was firefox using my GPU and overheating my system (even while not "appearently" doing anything).

I used to be a FF fan, but not anymore after losing a $1200 GPU due to the horrible programming that basically is making FF become a huge contributor to my electricity bill wearing out my hardware.

as of 2021 I am abandoning FF due to concerns of further damaging my PC.

I may have gotten some adware I don't know, but when I open a new tab, and type into the Google search it gives me Yahoo search, and then if I use Yahoo search to search Google search then go to the Google search when I type there it then give me some strange Facebook search. I have tried uninstalling Firefox, and then reinstalling it, and nothing is different. I go to settings it says I should have Google search, but it keeps doing what I described above, so what can I do to fix this?

My computer had repairs, after the repairs firefox was Not working. I downloaded it again, and it was a newer version ,but my bookmarks were there. After my computer was turned off, then turned back on, a version of firefox, that came up was from 2006 came up along with bookmarks from that time period. The only profiles I can find(3 profiles) are all old, nothing with newer (from the last 5 years) bookmarks. How do I find the New profile that I downloaded just 2 days ago... that has all my 5 years of bookmarks? I tried to find this other account, with profiles, but was not able to.
