If I use FF version 63 (64 bit) the particular site server blocks blocks access. If I use FF version 59 (32 bit) I can get access. I have used the site before (Q4 2018) for shopping. Is this a 32/64 bit problem or a version problem? Suggestions how to fix please.

recently ever since upgrading to Firefox Quantum i have noticed a huge RAM issue and after looming around forums for many months gathering different viewpoints on this problem i feel like the issue is most likely being caused by the new addon handling protocols, once you disable every single addon you will notice firefox uses about 80% less ram, the problem isnt that i have too many addons even with a single addon enabled the RAM usage dramatically increases i personally only use an adblocker and google translator very lightweight addons for any other version of firefox until it hits Quantum, and no i dont use 100 tabs in a single session... i normally use like 2-3 tabs and have only about 8 tabs only max, but if that doesn't convince you at mozilla that Quantum has horrible addon handling take this into your figures Quantum without addons idles on a fresh restart at about 400mb RAM usage but once you enable an addon that number jumps up to about 500-600mb and every addon enabled after that compounds the usage issue

this wasn't a problem with firefox until quantum was introduced, and from what i hear about the firefox quantum the addon handling was changed to disallow addons access to specific browser system files that some addons were using that caused firefox to crash,

feel free to correct me if i'm wrong but “Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” iv eliminated all the other probable causes and the changes to the addon handling is all that remains

Hello,

I would like to increase the size of the font on the menu, address bar, and tabs without increasing the size of web content. I like the web content as it is. I therefore DO NOT want to increase the font globally. Is this possible? Previous answers to similar requests pointed users to an extension to do this. However that extension no longer works (because of some update in 2017 I think). Thanks for your help!

For some reason it updated without asking/notifying me about it. Then after it restarted it reset EVERYTHING. I don't see the Apps anymore, the shortcuts on toolbar are gone/back to defult items & I can't restore any of the past backedup sessions from the past week! I had at least 150+ tabs in 4 windows. And I already tried the "History> Closed tabs"restore thing. It only restores the LAST session, since I've been trying to fix/figure this out for at least 12 hours & nothing has restored the tabs from about 13 hours ago. Note: My Bookmarks & History (I've previously set to saved before the sessions I've had to restart during) are fine, it's only the many tabs that I can't restore is my sudden problem.

Hi,

I've been using multiple browsers so far, and I'm interested in the speed of Firefox and I'm interested. I would like to change 'Open Address in New Tab' function, which is now 'Alt + return', to 'Command + return'. It seems that Firefox does not support this seemingly simple function. The 'Saka key', which I recommend on the official website, has many features that I want before like 'Vimium', but it was not what I was looking for this. I need help.

Thanks,

So whenever I'm trying to connect to localhost/bWAPP or 172.0.0.1 it just dosen't work. It says:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web." 

The same thing happens but it says "localhost" instead of 127.0.0.1 when I try to connect to localhost/bWAPP I will send a screenshot of it. And yes I've tried chrome but it didn't work.

It seems more and more websites DON'T like Firefox. I am a music composer and have to send audio files to various websites. Most of them do not work with Firefox and I am forced to use Safari (yuk). What is it about Firefox that these website hate? FYI . . . here's a couple of offenders: www.songtradr.com https://app.musicsupervisor.us

I've also noticed that uploading in general seems to be more bandwidth heavy with Firefox. I like Firefox because of the many wonderful 3rd party plugins that are available and syncing to my devices is really nice too. But, if these problems continue . . . I'll have to say goodby.

Hope this helps and hope future updates will make improvements. marknox

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

I wonder why this very important field is removed. I have over 10 years of information recorded in this field for reference. This seems completely unneccessary to remove it. At least, could you provide an import tools so that user can move those description into some other field in the bookmark?

I saw many people asked this question, and no solution works for me. By exporting the information to a html is not enough, because I need to manually handle over 10 years of description information, which is foolish.
