I got a new computer and am moving my profile to new computer(W10 to W10). The old profile is 464MB, mostly in Storage/Default 234MB I think this is a lot and want to slim it down. I want to keep bookmarks and have it auto recall previous sites I have visited. Can I keep the bookmarks and auto recall, but delete some of the files? These files are big also, places.sqlite, webappstore.sqlite, favicons.sqlite Thank you very much.

Hello.

Flash files stopped being supported on January 12th. I am a user of a site where "mini chat" uses swf files as the sound of a new message. Since firefox does not play these files, is there any option to notify (e.g. beep sound) that a site has tried to play such a file? maybe some kind of addon?

Or is there a way to make swf files work only on this page?

https://youtu.be/SeS9afnekZw Youtube Freezes when Opening Videos on Firefox. only on Firefox. this is my youtube video. i recorded this to show what it looks like. only thing that bothers me is Youtube is perfectly fine on Chrome, which i can't stand becuase of the volume of memory that Chrome uses.

i erased both of Firefox and Chrome and install only Firefox without any addons. one time i erased cookies and still same problem.

this problem only happenas after first youtube video. only the first youtube video is fine. there's no freezing, lag, latency on the first video.

Sometime within the last couple of weeks I have noticed that elements of YouTube's UI have vanished. Things like the red bar along the bottom of video thumbnails that indicate a video already watched, the video duration on the bottom right of the thumbnails, as well as the 'vertical three dots' ••• menu button underneath thumbnails that contained the "not interested" option no longer appear on the YouTube main page. The three dots menu still exists in the side bar list of recommended videos while actually watching a video, so it's only affecting the main page.

I have confirmed that those UI elements work in a different browser and, bizarrely, they seem to work when I use a Firefox private window. This led me to believe that one of my extensions was causing the issue, but even disabling all of them did not bring the missing UI element back in normal browser windows. I have also tried clearing all of my cache, cookies, and site data to no avail.

I am on Windows 10 Pro (Version 20H2 OS Build 19042.746) with an up-to-date Firefox (Version 84.0.2 64-bit). Current extensions: BetterTTV, FrankerFaceZ, uBlock Origin, and Facebook Container.

Attached image shows the lack of the three dots button on the top normal Firefox window and the presence of that button on the bottom private window.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to what may be causing this and possible solutions. Thanks for your time.

Hello,

This problem just started with the last update or two from firefox, and the other browsers CHROME or EDGE loads the site just fine. To view how the twitter feed should look, just load in those browsers and you will see it styled.

MY SITE https://www61.myfantasyleague.com/2020/home/15387#0

You notice the lower left twitter feed, it is not being styled by css through js. I get a console error that reads. DOMException: Permission denied to access property "frameElement" on cross-origin object

I am not sure how to fix this with a setting turned off or on maybe, or if firefox can fix in the browser, as i really dont want to use Chrome.

Thank you Dean

Hi, I received an email this morning supposedly from mozilla support which stated there was a reply to a question I posted here about 5 years ago. Not the kind of person to click links in emails I signed in directly to my Firefox account and searched for replies to my original question and did not see a reply from the poster who was mentioned the email. How can I determine if this email is actually from mozilla and if it is not what should I do with it? I did check my email using the Firefox Monitor and nothing showed up. Thank you.

How to turn off forever the "screenshot" splash notification

I have been asking for this since 2017 i think.

We need a fix to turn off forever the splash notification after taken a screenshot. I have been using the temporary solution of turning on "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" but we need a definite solution on how to turn that notification off forever.

Everytime I update to a new Firefox, I lose my auto logins on sites. I have to get out my Password list and manually login to every frikkin' site. I keep putting off updating, hoping that maybe the problem has been fixed, but like Lucy pulling the football from Charlie Brown, I give in and update and WHAM!

If this can't be fixed, is there a way to disable auto Firefox updates or even that nagging box in the upper right hand corner.

I don't do a lot of surfing on my PC any more, so to have this continually happen over and over again is extremely aggravating!

When Facebook updated their system a few months ago, running it on firefox with windows 10 on a pc crashes mozilla. It happens if you are logged into FB for some length of time (say an hour). I have no extensions operating just plain firefox. I turned on task manager inside firefox to watch what happened over time along with windows task manager. Within a half hour, FB is using high energy impact and just about all available memory in the system and filled the cache as well. Eventually it just freezes firefox and I have to kill the program go back and clear the cache and often do a complete refresh of firefox

  1. 1. Ought to have a "Suggestions" in the topic list.

My observation is that you have just changed the Bookmark Lookup function to show only bookmarks. It use to show folders as well. When I wanted to find a bookmark, it is often to move it to a more "consistent" place in bookmark map, and you can't do that any more.

Also on the Bookmark Edit page, it would be awfully helpful to have it's folder label displayed there as well.

This is an i7 4500U, Intel HD 4400 (Intel Graphics Family). Drops approximately 5% of the frames resulting in video stutter. Running on a (tested) 200mbps connection. Like I said in the title, Edge plays fine. I remember a few versions ago (can't pinpoint now), Firefox used to play theses videos without any issues. Examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79ImZE0K7xc And https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeZeINA1ts0

I spent the last morning trying every solution I found on the Internet, Reddit and Mozilla forums. Disabling stuff in the about:config, webgl stuff, doublebuffer, etc, etc. Tried downgrading to V77, disabling enabling 3D acc., etc.

Thanks.

In one of the recent updates the Page Range box is blank. It used to default to '1' but now defaults to nothing. I often just want to print the first page so I want to change this back.

Firefox latest version 84.0.2 on Win 10 latest updates Dell XPS 13 9380.

Firefox apparently crashes either on sleep or restore from sleep mode, forcing a session restore.

I specifically use a number of websites where forms are filled out in browsing tab. A Session Restore means a reload of that page, losing all my prior work on that page (could be up to an hour's work).

Loving my move from Chrome and starting my journey off the Google train. Firefox is great. But this one is a show stopper for me. Help!
