My computer slows to a point where it fails to respond to inputs. A yellow band appears, saying, "A web page is slowing down your computer. What would you like to do?" I click STOP, but that does nothing.

Well, I guess when I wrote the above I was expecting whatever help you might be able to give. Obviously, I'd like the problem fixed; how its done is up to someone who understands the problem and knows a whole lot more about these things than I do, and can communicate the procedure to me. (For some reason the Subject box above says that I've entered 574 characters EVEN AFTER I'VE DELETED MORE THAN HALF OF IT)

I have always in private mode enabled. Why is there a small web cache stored each time I open firefox?

Basically I have Never Remember History enabled, and each time I open FF there's data in 'Cookies and Site Data'. Under 'Cookies and Site Data' it will say there's a bit of data (in the photo is says 16Kb, which is pretty typical). If I look under 'manage cookies and site data' there will be nothing there. Sometimes the cookies or cache or whatever is bigger if the last time I used that profile I was watching videos, at most it will be a couple Mb's maybe. If I wipe it out, it will go to 0Kb, and then for the rest of the profile session, even if I have a bazillion tabs open, it will say 0, but then there's always a cache there the next time I start that profile.

What is it? Why is there always a small amount of data in the 'Cookies and Site Data' section each time I restart a profile?

I'm currently running version 68.2.0esr on Debian Linux version 5.3.0-1-amd64. Extension: uBlock Origin 1.23.0

                 uMatrix 1.4.0
                 Canvasblocker 0.5.14.

Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (disabled) Version 1.8.1.1

              Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Version 4.10.1440.19

I have web history turned off ('Never Remember History'), trackers blocked, cookies enabled w/ third party disabled, auto search engine update turned on, Do Not Track enabled, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' enabled by default (b/c history is off). I might have changed a few tiny things in about:config but nothing I remember offhand. Any other system info I can look up in need be.

Once again, without any warning, Firefox demanded I power-cycle itself because it, *without any permission*, installed an update "in the background". Firefox refuses to carry out any further action until I comply with its demands.

Let me be very clear: forced auto-updates are **100% EVIL**. I own, and am ultimately responsible for, this computer. Me. Not you. Me.

Download the update, fine. Notify me about it, present to me what the changes are coming, sure.

But under absolutely NO CIRCUMSTANCES is Firefox, or any other program for that matter, to modify itself or any other element of this computer without my positive consent.

Thanks a bunch!

I have this problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/820877

Except that all dropdowns are affected, including the ones that would let me open the settings menu and try the suggestions that worked for other people. These are pull down menus, address bar, settings menu, spellcheck, and any other pop-up/pull-down menus.

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Editing mode/normal mode, button, and keyboard shortcut. Abstract: Today the web is overcrowded with hyperlinks, there are so diverse and so many that many times there's no blank space left to make focus on the page, also it's hard to copy a link name. The hover cursor is almost omnipresent.

If there was some key shortcut to enable/disable hovering and link following to edit mode, this problem would be solved. Focus and edit inside all the page, And would be more secure than whatever certificate.

As of about firefox 63, it will no longer be possible to prevent firefox from checking for updates as the preference (option) to do so is being removed. In the past, it was simply a matter of setting the option to never check for updates. This is important in an organization as you want everyone to be at the same level. In such organizations, the latest firefox would be obtained once, checked out, then rolled out to the organization from it's support system team/person. Is there going to be a way to prevent the message "an update is available, please install?"

On the site https://vsx.mpchat.com , firefox-ESR falls when video broadcasting is enabled. It appeared on version 60 - in the future this problem persisted - in 60.1.0, 60.2.0, 60.3.0. In versions up to 60, this problem was not. Other browsers work well with these sites for translation. Complete cleaning of browsers, reset, reinstall-did not help.
