Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

What would cause FF to suddenly start running upwards of 35 processes with only a single tab open? It's hogging a tremendous amount of RAM when this happens and has rendered itself basically unusable. I normally only have 2-4 active extensions as well, but I've eliminated those now to no avail.

I have a recent problem with mouse hover with Bookmarks in the Menu bar. Basically; it no longer shows the URL info in the drop down box, only a blank, box appears. I am using Windows 7 and the current Firefox 107.0. It appears to be a Windows 7 issue, because I have the same problem on my Win 7 desktop and Win 7 laptop, but a laptop with Windows 11 is OK.

The really odd part is this. If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode in either Win 7 machine, the problem goes away, and the drop down box works fine, and displays the URL info. If I manually disable my add-ons in normal mode on either machine however, the problem does NOT go away.

One last odd point. On my desktop, when I am in normal Firefox mode, and look at Bookmarks in the History tab from the menu bar, the last (bottom most) bookmark, and ONLY the last bookmark WILL display the box info correctly. On my Win 7 laptop the same effect occurs, but the last (bottom most), bookmark will sometimes work properly in other folders, such as Other bookmarks for instance.

Also; the URL box does work properly with the ‘Show your bookmarks’ button, and the bookmarks menu if I use the “Open application menu”. These options produce too much ‘white space’ however, and are not as convenient to use. The drop down box works fine with other browsers, but Firefox is my favorite browser. I have searched the Internet and the forum, and not found a similar problem.

Attached are two photos showing the result in normal and troubleshooting mode. Thank you in advance.

Problem I had two versions of Firefox open. Window "A" (my primary window) had many open tabs. Window "B" had only three tabs open. Like a knucklehead I accidentally closed the wrong window, "A". Upon restarting only the "B" version was there.

Possible Solution Two days ago I cloned my "C" drive as a backup. Although the Profile folder on the backup will only have 90+% of the tabs - I can gratefully live with that. I just need to know what files to copy over from the backup drive Profile folder to the messed up drive's Profile folder. I am hoping it will be that easy and I can copy the tab files and not the entire Profile folder. Thanks.

Explore possibilities of using System Theme 1.0 in Firefox 91.9.1esr and later.

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

Everytime I try to close my Firefox browser window, it just stops. There are multiple processes taking in excess of 200 or 300K in memory that seem to be causing the problem. I have to manually end the process just to close Firefox, and it is quite annoying.

I just checked, my Firefox is up to date. Yesterday I deleted and re-installed Firefox, but it's still doing the same thing.

This is kind of driving me nuts to be honest. I have Chrome, Opera, and Edge also installed on my computer so I'm ready to jetisson Firefox but thought I'd see what the community has to say first.

For the last several weeks, the reliability of Firefox has went off a cliff following an auto-update. After a few hours of browsing, it gets to the point where the tabs load extremely slow (or not at all). When this happens, I exit and relaunch.

Previously, it would be nearly instantaneously where the windows would close and the firefox.exe process would cease within seconds. Now, it's taking upwards of 5-10 minutes for the process to stop AFTER the windows have closed and, during that time, it'll bring the system to a near crawl. Once the process finally closes though, everything is back to working fine.
