The latest update added a new warning to the "Forget About This Site" feature. I use this sometimes, and when I saw this warning for the first time yesterday, I knew it was going to be a pain in the arse. I understand it's useful to some people, but I do not want to see it every time. How do I disable this warning?

Firefox Beta and earlier have a minus sign on upper right to minimize to taskbar. That is missing in Nightly. Firefox Beta and earlier have a square box on upper right to go from maximized screen to normal screen.Now, double clicking on the top bar does the latter, but that box is missing in NIghtly.

As a result, Nightly has become unusable. I early await the fix.

For some reason images are not loading in Outlook.com when I use Firefox. Images load fine when using Chrome or Edge, but Firefox is my preferred browser. Is anyone having a similar issue. I know there was recently an issue with the site itself but it seems MS resolved it but perhaps whatever they did only fixed the issue for chromium engines?

Firefox Version 93 64-bit

  • I have used troubleshoot mode and it works temporarily so I thought it was an extension and turned them all off but the issue persists. I reset Firefox but it did not correct the issue.
  • I have disabled the tracking protection and no change
  • I went in to Outlook.com settings and toggled the 'Use outlook services to load images' and no change.
  • Emails are marked as safe senders.

I think I hit all the major tips I have read online so I'm hoping I'm overlooking something. Any thoughts?

Some sites colors are inverted or glitched. I've noticed when I've used roblox that the description of the game isn't there and that the site is elongated and it's just a long, empty space until I get to the bottom. Sites like steam (More specifically the workshop) the background is the light for some reason but the text stays white and it's a struggle to see.

How do I fix this? I've tried changing between light and dark mode.

Over the past week I keep getting a Crash Report popup when Firefox obviously hasn't crashed, since I can continue browsing through multiple tabs. I've been able to close that dialog box and continue surfing. It has also happened after I've closed Firefox in the evening, after closing all tabs, signing out of email, etc, before turning the computer off. I suspect some type of malware, but Defender says there isn't a problem, and the popup looks exactly like the one shown on the Crash Report help page. I'm attaching a screenshot from this morning.

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

I'm getting an Access Denied error when trying to use my health insurer's website. I have cleared all cookies and history. There is no History entry to right-click and tell it to "Forget." I have disabled my VPN and temporarily turned off both Windows Firewall and Avira security. I can access in Edge or Chrome, but I dislike both of those browsers. I've checked DNS Prefetch, Proxy setting is "No Proxy," IPv6 is disabled, and I've tried with Extensions off. What else is there left to try?

Nightly 95 on Windows 11 - Minimize & Maximize Buttons Are Missing

I have recently clean installed Windows 11 on my computer. I have noticed with the current Nightly 95 install that the minimize & maximize buttons are completely gone, only the close button is there. Even when I click on the area where the 2 missing buttons are nothing happens. When I double click the same area, the area behaves the same way as the rest of the top bar, it either makes the current window become a smaller window or a full window.

I have also installed Firefox 93 and 94 Beta 6, they both behave as normal with the minimize and maximize buttons visible and usable, just like any other program or Firefox version ever on Windows. Also, before I clean installed Windows 11, I used Nightly 95 on Windows 10 within the last day or so and I don't recall ever having this behavior happen there either.

Is this behavior on Nightly 95 on Windows 11 intentional or an error? I know Firefox has and is going through a massive GUI update and other user facing changes with Proton, but wasn't sure if this had anything to do with the trouble I am experiencing. I also understand that Nightly may have a lot of changes and features that are unique to it. I honestly just wasn't sure about this issue.

Thank you in advance for any and all help!
