The latest Adobe Flash in Firefox is using about 15% to 30% of a 4-core CPU continuously which is excessive and inexcusable. Firefox displaying a video with HTML5 uses 1% to 8% CPU and the video quality is most excellent (where it is allowed to display video, i.e. no monopoly by Flash.) I have to lay the entire blame for this on Adobe and their arrogance over their assumed monopoly. I think Mozilla need to exert influence in the form of dialogue and pressure to get Adobe to kick their developers into turning Flash into an efficient and elegant program instead of the abominable memory and resource hog that it has become. Adobe have been allowed the luxury of believing themselves to have become essential. There are other companies' products that can easily replace every Adobe product and in many cases do a better job. Adobe has gotten fat and lazy. Mozilla, help Adobe to the gym. They need to lay off the Cheetos and straighten up their act.

So, I noticed that Firefox seems to have updated twice in the past week or so. Before hand, I had the browser set to my liking. I had an add-on that prevented Youtube videos from starting on their own, and I had an efficient pop-up blocker that blocked all pop-ups without fail.

I've fixed the Youtube issue with Magic Actions, but Popups are back and I'm scrambling to find even more add-ons that might remedy these issues, to no avail. Why the updates seem to have had a negative impact on what was working just fine is beyond me...I find it agitating.

That's really all I want...no pop ups with out my consent. I not have Adblock Plus, Adblock Plus Pop-up Addition, Flashblock, Strick Pop-Up Blocker...Sites that I used to visit that forced pop-ups are now allowing the pop-ups through. Any idea?s

I often use "open all as tabs" for a bookmark folder of weather.com "5 day forecast" sites covering the towns in a geographical region where I plan to go hiking.

One Firefox browser with six tabs for six towns in my state. "5 day forecast for Gorham," "5 day forecast for Jackson," "5 day forecast for Lincoln," etc.

The problem is the tab displays only some of the first few words of the site description: "5 day forcas," "5 day forcas," "5 day forcas," etc.

I'd like to display only the end of that sentence, which is the name of the town. This way I would have a list of towns across the top of the browser for direct reference.

I changed the "name" property of each bookmark, but that only affects the name in the bookmark collection list, not the display name of a tab in use.

I used about:memory to investigate memory usage by FF 30.

The steps: 1. Start FF. 2. Load 4 web page (two of those is on the Google Calendar forum, one - GMail with simple html view, and another - web page with text content and few scripts). 3. Build memory usage report with about:memory.

The main results: 628.23 MB (100.0%) -- explicit 333.69 MB (53.12%) -- window-objects 226.20 MB (36.01%) ++ top(https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topicsearchin/calendar/flair/calendar/8RV2ZSCoJ4E, id=436) ─49.94 MB (07.95%) ++ top(https://productforums.google.com/forum/?utm_medium=email&utm_source...) 29.78 MB (04.74%) ++ (110 tiny)

"110 tiny" of 29.78 MB (04.74%) contains windows with another two opened web pages and 108 preloaded tabs in the Tree Style Tab plugin with about 0.20 MB (00.03%) per each _blank_ tab (it is not a problem).

Does it realy need to cosume 226.20 MB by one web page of Google Calendar help forum? How to get lower memory usage for hard AJAX web pages?

PS How to attach memory-report.json.gz?

I have been fortunate enough to be able to download images that I intend to use for an upcoming website. However, after downloading them, they won't open when I double-click on the download(s). Some will, and some from other websites will open. This occurs with other downloads that I have from other sites occasionally as well. It is very frustrating and I'm just not knowledgeable to be able to go in and try and find, or fix, the problem(s). They've been downloaded as .jpg files and I have imported the ones I could open into their own folder. What's my issue?

When I am using Firefox all information is not on screen in one normal window at one time (left to right) must use slider at bottom of screen to see about the last 30% on right side of screen. This condition only exists while using Firefox, all other software/utilities/etc. fits on screen in normal window without the need for slider. My computers are either Acer Aspire 5750Z-4835 laptop running Windows-XP Pro-64Bit (Note: Laptop came with Windows-7 (stinks) which I replaced with XP-Pro 64Bit.) or Gateway desktop running Windows-XP Pro 32Bit. However, both computers have same problem in whatever site I view/go to while using Firefox, E-mail, Streaming, News Sites, etc. Using Firefox 29 now, but 28 or 21 had same issue.

Firefox has been working well and recently added a session manager to keep track of sequential use where each window has multiple tabs however, this has no relation to the following question:-

Upon pressing the yellow star to make a bookmark & then edit its location, the drop-down box (Folder sub-drop down) is fairly short, it would be more efficient for me to use if it could be increased from the 6 items to more like 20 or 24 etc ie. Its the Folder drop down list under the "Choose" option... Hoping there is a registry setting as I cannot see this elsewhere ?

Hi,

I wonder if someone could help me please.

I have an issue that extends across my browsers – Firefox and Internet Explorer (Firefox is default) and both are the latest version possible. My machine is fully patched (Win7 Pro x64 SP2).

The issue is as shown below:

'The site xxxx is requesting a user name and password. The site says: "restricted"’

The happens for some (not all) sites and I have to click “cancel” twice to remove the dialogue box, and then the site appears and works normally for a little while. The box will come up again if I attempt to click any links within the same site. It’s incredibly annoying and has been frustrating me for the past month. Here’s what I have tried so far, but hasn’t resolved the issue:

• Clearing Firefox cache/history manually (set to never remember anything)
• Tried checking/unchecking private browsing
• Made sure “accept 3rd party cookies” is enabled
• Tried all checkboxes for “no proxy”, “use system proxy” and “auto detect system proxy” etc
• Disabled all add-ons/extensions within Firefox and retried
• Performed the option to “Reset Firefox” to its default state from within “Troubleshooting”
• Completely uninstalled and re-installed Firefox (latest version)
• Went to the URL "about:config" and searched for the key "network.websocket.enabled" and switched it to "false".
• Went to the URL "about:config" and searched for the key "network.proxy.share_proxy_settings" and switched it to "false".
• Went to the URL "about:config" and searched for the key "network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies" and switched it to "false".
• Run a full AV scan in safe mode (with latest definition files) using Avira Antivirus, Spybot Search & Destroy, MalwareBytes, Super Antispyware and performed full optimisations via Registry Mechanic, Tune-up Utilities 2013 and CC Cleaner (with CC Extender installed). No threats found.

None of the above has helped. The problem is only recent so I’m not entirely sure what’s changed.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I seem to have exhausted my ability to diagnose the fault via the god of Google 

Regards

I'm trying to use iunfollow.com it ask you to log in using twitter. But after login twitter says it will redirect back to iunfollow but I'm not logged in on iunfollow but am in twitter. This is happening for 5 different websites I tried. Also lost some functions in WordPress when updating a blog.

This all happened after the last Firefox update. But all this works fine in IE8 & Chrome. I been trying to Google it and find solutions but nothing so I decided to sign up and try to get some help form someone on here.

Also all the extensions and plug ins below I had before the update none are newly installed.

Running: Firefox 26.0 OS: Windows xp 64 bit

Add-ons: iTunes application detector 1.0.1.1 Java Platform se 7 u45 10.45.2.18 Shockwave Flash 11.9.900.170 Online storage plug in 1.0.27.39 Work space email plug in 1.0.21.46

Firefox browser automatically updated itself, and since the update, I can't sign into my Comcast email. I sign in, click to go to email, and browser takes me back to the sign-in page, not to my email. I can get into my email via Internet Explorer, but no longer with Firefox. Evidently, the update screwed up the browser with respect to Comcast.
