Starting Firefox triggers Memeo backup and Trusteer to run and bog down cpu

Hello, While not on every occurrence of starting Firefox, too many times Firefox won't bring up its home page (Google) because two applications running in the background (Memeo Premium Backup and Trusteer Rapport) start to run at the same time and contribute at least 70% of the CPU load, with Firefox accounts for another 20%.

I imagined that Google is flooding Firefox with a lot of files that Memeo begins tabulating for transfer in anticipation of its external backup drive being eventually switched on.

So I decided to tell Memeo to specifically exclude two system folders which might be storing temporary files when Firefox is active.

C:\Users\**\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox C:\Users\**\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox

Doing this did not improve things, as Memeo and Trusteer occasionally turn on as Firefox is starting up.

Does anyone know of any other folders which could be potential locations for temporary data that Memeo may feel obligated to interact with.

Thanks

Any extensions I install suddenly don't show up in my toolbar or the customization menu anymore, so I also can't drag them there manually.

Deleting the extensions and re-installing them didn't work, neither did deleting the extensions folder itself.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? I've attached a screenshot of the customization menu and extensions menu below.

Thanks :)

I have multiple monitors and most often have Firefox windows open on each. Lately, I've been noticing that the Desktop Window Manager process is consuming a huge amount of RAM. At the same time, consumption completely disappears with the closing of Firefox windows. Video: https://i.imgur.com/pHCa7Hh.mp4 (I left it for a while then closed Firefox windows) After a while, I noticed that already 13 GB of memory is being used by DWM. I don't know if sites affect behavior, but most often I have https://music.yandex.ru/home open

OS: Windows 11 (Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.22621.1928]). Firefox: 115.0.1 (64-bit) Screen setup: 1 - 3840 x 2560 with 200% scale, 2 - 1920 x 1080 with 100% scale.

Windows 10 Pro Laptop: Version 22H2, OS build 19045.3086

I have a Microsoft outlook.com email address that I use for my FF account. My authenticator email was setup in Authy without problem however FF does not accept its 2FA 6 digit code which makes me think the app may not be compatible with FF. My cell and laptop are setup to auto recognize location for time setting.

Comments please...

How do I have all my bookmarks and folders sorted by name automatically and permanently? When I open Bookmarks I want to see the folders sorted and the bookmarks inside each folder sorted, automatically so I never have to manually. In other words, behave like Windows File Explorer.

I'm almost certain I had it working that way on a previous installation of FireFox, but I can't get this new installation of Firefox to do the same.

Sometimes when I go to weather.com I get a pop-up that says something to this affect: We've detected that Global Privacy Controls are turned Off yet they were turned On when you previously visited our site. This does not happen every time I go to weather.com. Sometimes it pops up, other times it does not. I think then if offers some buttons to click to turn it On. I just close the site and open it again. When I do sometimes this repeats and sometimes it doesn't. I know next to nothing about this. Firefox Settings it says its version 115.0.1 and that Firefox is up to date. I also have DuckDuckGo Essentials if that makes any difference.

I am trying to view a website that is protected by cloudflare and afew days ago I could look at it with out issue now it keeps coming up with Checking if the site connection is secure XXXXXXXX.net needs to review the security of your connection before proceeding.

I removed the web sites address from the above as its does this with a few sites

I have tried to view the sites in both Private/incognito Mode and standard window

if some one can help me figure this out I will be most welcome as it means I can view some of the sites I normally see there is a button that says to verify you are human but when I try to click it, it dissapears and starts constantly reloading or just a moment showing

yes I have a VPN and have tried viewing sites with and without it on as well as using a different browser

Hello! This is not really a question ... more a comment. This morning when I opened my WIN 7 HOME tower PC, and opened FIREFOX, I saw the notice that this latest release is the latest for WIN 7. That's fine, but I wish to tell you something about WIN 7 PRO & MICROSOFT. Evidently, there is some major user of WIN 7 PRO who has demanded that MICROSOFT continue to support this version. I have two H-P laptops, which I use for Ladder programming. Both are loaded with WIN 7 PRO, and both receive periodic updates from MICROSOFT. So, it would seem that ALL support for these older releases of Windows has not ended. I am in the process of moving all my files & applications from this WIN 7 HOME PC to my WIN 10 tower PC. THANK YOU. robert herold [removed emails from public]

P.S. Had no problem porting the FIREFOX data to the 10, but had a lot of problems doing the same for THUNDERBIRD on this PC to the 10, despite getting assistance from your tech people.

Can we please reduce the size of the mandatory bars up top? Is the Fox going to be like Opera and the rest and make us leave? Why do they want half the screen? They took away the controls and then started making them fat. Right now I have 2/3 screen. Anybody have a solution? I know there is no explanation why they all do this. They never answer. Thanks.
