    1. Steps to reproduce

1. Open the history sidebar (on Win/Linux: Ctrl+H). 2. Enter a search string that returns many results (e.g. facebook.com). 3. Select all results (Ctrl + A), and delete them all (Delete) 4. Notice that the main thread hangs until the deletion is complete (in my case, > 30 seconds)

    1. Expected behaviorOS:

The deletion should be not cause the rest of the application to deadlock.

    1. Other info

OS: Manjaro i3, but IIRC it was also present on Ubuntu. Firefox version: 88.0 (64-bit), but has been present for as long as I can remember (at least a year).

I reinstalled Win10, clean install. Reinstalled Firefox, v88 and imported my bookmarks (.json). Took a while (36.4Mo) but they got imported and I got to sort the latest bookmarks them into folders and tags while I transferred files from a hard drive. Trimmed them to 31 Mo and saved a backup. Exited firefox. Later I launch firefox to install addons and notice all my latest bookmarks have vanished. All my tags are gone too.

When I check to restore my backup, I have the choice between - today's automated backup (11 Mo; 110.000 items) 100.000 items, that is, half of my bookmarks. - ... or my manual save I did. Restoring my manual save returns the bookmarks and tags. But they disappear when I exit firefox. Sitting for half a hour for my bookmarks to load each time I launch firefox is not a solution. I estimate there's 70k to 100k links and 1k tags missing.

I have one only profile. Fresh, latest FF, no addons. No clue too.

Hello everyone. I have two major issues with firefox recently.

1. Firefox keeps me outlogged on any account I have including website such as: Microsoft , Youtube, etc.

2. Firefox download rate is only 900b/s but my internet goes all way up to 250'000Kb/s or 250Mb/s. Any advice? Thanks in ahead.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Hi,

I noticed that after most Microsoft updates (which are too many and very annoying), I cannot open my "live.com" e-mails within FireFox. The e-mails remain stuck on "Load" and just will not open. This has happened before and there was no solution apparently. The last time it happened, the system reset itself (not sure when, or how) but it took several months for this to happen.

Is this a common issue and is there an 'easy' solution? My version of FireFox is up to date and I have not tweaked any of the privacy or security options. Interestingly, I noticed that I can open my e-mails using Microsoft Edge, but not using FireFox.

Thank you in advance! I am sure this will happen again and I'd like to find out if there is a solution that I can resort to next time this happens (assuming of course that the issue is related to the same cause).

I'm using Firefox 88.0-2 installed on Debian 10 using snap.

When i try to upload any file it just doesn't show the file selection window. When i try to download any file it shows the window where it asks what you want to do with this file but doesn't download it when i select the save option. I tried changing the download location, clearing the download history, clearing the settings of firefox handles different types of files and also resetting firefox.

Also firefox creates a folder 'firefox.tmp' in downloads folder on my machine. Even if delete it, it gets created again when i start firefox.

Anyone else facing this issue or any idea how to tackle it ?

Regardless of how many tabs I have open or what I am doing on them, Firefox is practically guaranteed to crash at least once during my session. More than likely, it will be two or three times before I can get back to using it effectively. I have tried going through the troubleshooting steps to no avail; Firefox and Windows are both up to date, as are, I believe, my drivers. Troubleshoot Mode keeps the app from crashing, but the individual windows crash within 30 seconds. Attached are the almost 20 crash reports I have submitted, I sincerely hope there is something I can do because I really don't want to use Chrome. bp-2ea57dc6-e2c6-4cbb-8629-797c60210501 bp-3e10c8f1-e7b6-41a2-b716-1983c0210501 bp-512e036d-c6d1-4043-b350-13ecd0210501 bp-8008ed25-abde-4691-949b-8f9f50210501 bp-317e0ae2-97dc-4ec0-8e9c-63fff0210501 bp-359f2689-619b-4efa-8323-536280210501 bp-b0c10f58-5b84-4d12-8ee3-669d20210501 bp-cfc500fb-bb14-416b-a66e-3a9c50210501 bp-5d90aaad-0c1b-4416-916a-e909b0210501 bp-2f043c8a-2a3d-4c8b-8314-89b8a0210501 bp-a32d18c8-d584-417c-81e6-e4f130210501 bp-be384a9a-7131-4555-b50e-0e8660210501 bp-ede73694-d61b-440a-9785-353910210501 bp-ae1a5c51-052a-4ba3-8808-c34eb0210501 bp-bf3d2b4a-949a-45e0-a8f3-360640210501 bp-bcb58d4b-0ed8-42dd-92ba-405340210501 bp-bab62aab-b411-4b48-b07e-910a30210501

Greetings...

As I visit specific websites and they attempt to install one or more cookies in my Firefox browser, I would like to be able to enable them for the then-current session only, so that they are automatically deleted when I close my Firefox browser.

While I could configure my Firefox browser to delete all cookies and site data when I close my Firefox browser, I do not want to delete all cookies, only those cookies that I have specificaly enabled for the then-current session only.

Is there any way that I can accomplish this in my Firefox browser? Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to do this based on my research to date.

Thank you for your attention!

I just sent an e-mail to someone at a company that handles my finances and I immediately got an ad in my Yahoo mail from a company called BeenVerified asking if I wanted to know more information about the person I sent the e-mail to. This is very unsettling. I don't know if it is really related to Firefox, or Yahoo Mail, or the fact that I had an account with BeenVerified in the recent past which I cancelled sometime back.

Is there a possibility that the security settings within Firefox can be changed to stop such a thing?

Thank you for your time!!!

Alan
