This is pissing me off so much! I'm working and in the middle of everything I have no other option than to completely restart my browser, which can easily resolve into losing what I was doing, not to mention that it completely kills my workflow. STOP DOING THIS! I don't care what the reason is, you're severely hindering the usage of the app. I will decide when to restart, not the app! I have a fresh start of my system every single day, I'm sure whatever unimportant update it was this time can wait a few hours.

Hi from a short time back I've noticed my local pages (vdeveloping on localhost) are being cached regardless of my config which is not caching anything at all. This is particularly annoying when you make small changes and they're not reflected at once but instead they are only after 5,6,... 10 reloading calls.

I've searched for help and followed the instructions of changing options in about:config with no results

I'm using Linux and 96 version of the browser.

Thanks in advance

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading

How do I reverse what happened to 'History' when I accidentally clicked 'Forget About This Site' instead of 'Delete Page' on the drop-down menu for the highlighted page in the history feed.

I realise that I caused this problem last night when I clicked the wrong option in the drop-down menu but only became aware of what I had done when I went to my history feed this afternoon. I was looking in my history feed to find a site that I visited yesterday and noticed that a website that I have visited several times earlier today is not appearing in the feed. It is the same site that I clicked the wrong selection in the drop-down menu for last night.

How do I get 'History' to start showing that site in the feed again?

This is a dealbreaker and I'm quiting firefox because of it.

Event: "Firefox has upgraded in the background and needs to restart.

You will be able to continue where you left off..."

Infuriatingly, there is no option to postpone. All browsing is immediately prevented and there is no option to do anything other than restart. Furthermore, there is no option to turn off automatic updates or even to get a notification that one might be happening until it is too late.

Problem: The restart does not return to "where I left off" with a) only one tab re-opening (plus all private tabs lost); and b) many logins and much form-filling progress lost. For example, I was in the process of submitting a government form in a private tab when, on the last step, instead of the final confirmation page, I got the dreaded "Firefox has upgraded and needs to restart" message. Upon restart, the tab didn't reopen, and I lost the session and had to start again from the beginning with the form filling process. Utterly infuriating and completely unnecessary.

I was putting up with Firefox's other annoying quirks, but this is ridiculous.

I am a retired person trying to use Firefox on a Linux os computer i OWN. To day, Firefox has become unstable. I see in my settles that an "enterprise" now controls my copy of firefox.

How can I eliminate this obstruction?

Most discussion of this problem discusses Windows os and is useless to me.

My os is LinuxMint 19 (Tara)

Please advise!

Ever since my Firefox application was updated to 96, the application has become unstable. The only way I can load it is be typing Firefox =P on my terminal, and picking a profile. The usual approach produces a response that "Firefox" can't find my profile. After attempting to fix this for two days, my links, logins, bookmarks, are available sometimes or never.

The 96 version was a big mistake and never should have been installed on my computer, which is no connection to an "enterprise".

How can I recover a stable non-enterprise related version of Firefox?

How to share the tabs across all open windows?

Hi, I work in GNU/Linux + Gnome with several tabs (around 100). They have different context (research, personal, related to a course, and work; are some examples). I use several windows with several tabs each. I would like to have one group per window, to be able to close a window and not losing the tabs it had, (to close all the windows and be able to reopen them).

I cannot find a way to organize my tabs in such a way that windows don't isolate their tabs. There are plenty of add-ons to group tabs. But all of them end up hiding/unhiding the tabs of only the current window.

It looks that the underlying architecture is this: OS has Firefox. Firefox has Windows. Windows have tabs. Tabs are manageable only in the window they belong to.

Therefore, every window is only aware of its own group of tabs.

What I am looking for is a different approach, or at least the illusion of it: OS has Firefox Firefox has Tabs. Tabs are manageable, from any instance of a window.

Therefore, the window is only a viewer that is aware of all the tabs.

The plug-ins: Panorama Tab Group, Simple Tab Groups, and similar work a bit, but if I open a new window, and do some browsing, the old window does not know anything in the new window.

Is there a setting/plugin that can solve this problem? maybe I am missing some setting or I just don't know how to use the plugins... Thanks for your time. Best

I am on a metered connection. Updates chew up my data, and I want to CHOOSE when to use that data for updates. There is no toggle in the configuration screen that would allow me to turn off automatic updates, and setting the preference via about:config hasn't worked. I am very irritated by this. It's my computer, it's my browser, and I don't like being forced to do what someone else has decided I should do just because they thought it would be a good idea. If I can't find a way to turn off auto updates then I'll abandon Firefox for something more user-friendly.
