When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

Is there any way of making sure it works consistently? I need to right click then click "Open Link in New Tab" to have it work reliably. Maybe something in about:config? Using latest Win7 64 bit Firefox. I've noticed this for probably 2 years now at least. Not sure if it ever worked 100%.

I notice more and more that I'll go to a website and hit PageDown and nothing happens. The focus is on some other part of the page so PageDown doesn't work. This used to be a standard. Is there any way of overriding the web designer's choice so PageDown always works?

I get this error secure.ipower.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when I try to get in contact with www.ipower.com my Internet website service. Any ideas I have tried to access functions in Firefox & Google get the same message. Does anyone know if this company is down, out of business or ???

Why am I not able to answer the question "Nationality?" with the reply I believe to be closest to the truth? Saying I'm from the UK is like saying a Kenyan is African. While technically true, it lacks the accuracy most other countries are allowed to excercise. I'm not saying it would change the world, but it would be nice to have the option. thank you.

I want to unclutter the screen. How can I remove these Social site buttons down the left side of the screen? There's also a large font number with the word shares underneath, what that means I've got no idea, I don't own any shares. Can that be got rid of too?

I'm using an online image processing service. OK until recently when the resulting jpeg file download is blocked by ff for "potential security risk". [Literally the DL report says blocked but my photo software shows a jpeg file created that cannot be read.] An ff clone browser gets the file OK. Also there is a manual over-ride in ff that works one file at a time. I don't see any way to automate for batch or site itself. Manual for each file is a nuisance. I really don't know what I'm dealing with here but I doubt there is a virus or security danger for my home (not networked) pc. Thanks for any assist.

PS: I see in download help here, the threat warning of PSR [potential security risk] is ambiguous. Compared to "may harm your computer", a higher level. PSR says "uses an insecure connection . . . may be corrupted or tampered with during the download process". I read this knowing that another browser, and the ff override, get the file no problem. Can a security threat be concealed in a jpeg file? FF is relying on google-based protection, I believe.

I have had a government website to log into for informatin from them. It was always auto-filled. I have asked for support from them and they gave me another number to call and I did everything they asked, but then I got a little note saying that that site is not longer available and that it was cleared when I cleared the cache. I have tried creating a new account and even that doesn't work. Is there any way to get that website back?

As of today.1-22-2022. no page or app will load. I have been using duckduckgo on Firefox for years with no problem. An update yesterday 1-23-2022 took place, now all i get is a blue dash in the tab moving side to side, but no loading. Does Firefox have a technician Who can contact me? Waiting for another user is not acceptable.

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!
