Hi. I use Google reverse image search pretty often. When I have to apply search to image saved to my local storage, I go to images.google.com, drag image file from my Windows 10 desktop and drop it onto the Google search field. Unfortunately, it stopped working reliably few months ago. Sometimes it works, but most of times not.

I'm sure it is a Firefox bug since I tried to disable all of my extensions, delete cookies and even made clean Firefox installation in Windows Sandbox. Results were always the same. In Microsoft Edge, everything works fine.

Could somebody fix that please? After YouTube's inability to remember my theme selection (I was used to bright theme, but I had to stick with default dark one), this is another annoying issue I have on Google sites.

Thanks.

My Firefox browser crashes again and again whenever I open a game to play. I am playing EvoCreo Mod Apk, here I am confused that whether something is wrong with my game or with the browser. But for me, I think there is some problem with the browser because I am playing this game for a long time and it didn't happen in the past.

So obviously "We’ve reduced CPU usage on macOS in Firefox and WindowServer during event processing" is demonstrably false.

I went to Headspace, streamed an audio in Safari, noted the %CPU in Activity barely budged more than 20%. Then streamed the same audio in Firefox 93, noted the %CPU rocketed up to 150% and the laptop got hot and the fan kicked into high gear. Then I updated Firefox, restarted computer fresh, streamed the same audio and.....surprise, surprise no fix, no change, %CPU rockets up like before.

Firefox crashing when rendering maps

For the past two weeks, I've noticed that embedded maps make my browser immediately crash. I initially thought it was a Firefox problem, but I have been having a similar issue with Safari. This does NOT happen on my iPhone using the same two browsers. This also does not seem to effect Google Maps or embedded Google Maps, but embedded maps from other services. Anyway, I'm posting here because Firefox conveniently provides crash data, I'm not sure what else the cause could be and I'm hoping someone can help.

Two websites this has been consistently happening with are The Empire State Trail bike path (https://empiretrail.ny.gov/) and a NYC vaccine finder website (https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/). Firefox immediately crashes, though with the EST website it seems to be tied to the pathway of the trail being drawn (crashing after I've zoomed in a few times and the path has to regenerate). Safari doesn't totally crash, but forces a site reload and after it fails a second time says it can't display the site.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I'm on the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7), Firefox and Safari and seem to have all security updates for all.

Here's a link to the latest crash data: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/1389c870-51cf-4790-b0a0-fd01f0211202

I must log in to the WiFi network I use. When I start FireFox the first time, it brings up my login page, I click [Accept], and I'm online. After a while on, I get kicked off, and must log in again. (The non-internet, WiFi connection remains active; but I'm neither logged in nor online.) How do I re-initialize the automatic login function ("detectportal"?)?

Closing, and re-starting FireFox again doesn't work; it initially tries to go to my homepage instead... *but it can't*, because I'm not online. I can't go to the login page's displayed URL, for the same reason. I have to actually restart the computer, loosing whatever I'm doing, then start FireFox. Then, and only then, can I get it to go to the network login page so I can login and continue.

Is there a button, "about:thingie", or setting I can use to reinitialize the automatic login page search & display mechanism? Rebooting the whole computer is a xxxx.

Recently returned to Firefox after using Brave for around 6 months.

I have a pinned tab with my Gmail inbox (logged in and active). My Preferences are configured like this:

  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Enabled
  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Manage exceptions: "https://mail.google.com" & "http://mail.google.com"
  • History: Firefox will "Remember history"

(See attached screenshot)

With my Gmail tab active, when I close Firefox and reopen I expect my Gmail tab to be active but I have to login again everytime. When I used Firefox previously (before my Brave stint) I know that I managed to successfully configure Firefox to allow this. Any help would be appreciated.

PS. I do not have the Multi-Account Containers add-on active.

My primary machine has (FF 88.0.1 64-bit) has all the FF tweaks for privacy and annoyances I care to have. Last outstanding issue is floating videos -- but that's posted as another topic by me. Big questions:

1. Can I bring FF on the three other laptops and server to the same FF revision level at this machine and copy across all files that would capture settings this machine's settings/changes in Config and Policies ?

I currently make quick work of syncing UBlock and AdBlocker on all machines by simple export/imports of text files. Everything tweaked exactly the same on every machine with respect to FF is what I am after...

Since I upgrade MacOS to Big Sur, a couple basic Firefox functions have stopped working. 1) History is not being saved. I can restore deleted tabs, but there is nothing in the History menu, nor is there any record (for example, in the form of auto-complete) of websites I have visited in the past. 2) My bookmarks file appears to be mostly read-only. Clicking on the star icon to save a new bookmark does nothing. Selecting Bookmarks > Bookmark Current Tab does nothing. In the Manage Bookmarks environment, selecting Add Bookmark from the gear icon brings up a dialog box in which the only content is a Cancel button. In the Manage Bookmarks environment, I can change the Name of a current bookmark but cannot change its URL. If I try, it reverts to the old URL as soon as I click away from it.

The current help page that most closely describes my symptoms is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/changes-toolbars-and-window-sizes-are-not-saved. I tried both remedies, including refreshing Firefox and deleting xulstore.json, but no change in symptoms.

I've been running a series of searches weekly, for Bayko, on eBay.co.uk, for years, using a saved search. It now [actually for a few months] makes errors, and I've had to switch to using Chrome.

The errors : - 1 The number of found items is exaggerated by about 25%. 2 Page 7 - of 8 usually - states that no items have been found - try again - after displaying 6 full pages of 50.

For the record p8 displays fine.

Any thoughts, or, better still, solutions.
