Several issues since doing a refresh for Firefox to speed up desktop

Several issues since doing a refresh for Firefox – email links open in new window instead of tab. New window does not have my bookmarks. New window will not move to another open window. Firefox Options does not control my Firefox.

When I open Firefox Options the top line reads “Your browser is being managed by your organization.” That link opens Enterprise Policies DNSOverHTTPS Enabled false Locked true

I still have the “Old Firefox Data” folder on my desktop from the refresh. I question if it would resolve the issues. If I delete Firefox and then re-install it, will I be able to find my many years, long list of bookmarks?

My system shows 78.0.2 (32-bit) Firefox on Windows 10, version 2004 – both latest updates

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

I don'tr know what this would fall under. So I chose other

I cannot use this browser anymore. At first I thought it was web root, because on the options page it said, "this browser is run by this organiztion" or some such crap. and if I click on it, it said webroot.

I CONTROL THIS, I AM THE ORGANIZATION. SO I GOT RID OF WEBROOT.

Once again, when i made FIREFOX THE DEFAULT, IT CHANGES ,MY OTHER DEFAULTS. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE, I DON'T KNOW OF ANYONE WHO WOULD USE A BROWSER THAT DOES THAT. iT CHANGES MY PDF FILES INTO LITTLE ICONS OF FIREFOX AND IT DOESN'T GO TO MY EMAIL WHEN I CLICK AN EMAIL LINK IT GOES TO A BOX. I NEVER SET A THING TO DO THAT. I LOOKED ALL OVER THE SETTINGS, AND I CAN'T TELL WHAT IN THE WORLD WOULD CAUSE IT TO DO THAT. I JUST END UP HAVING TO USE CHROME, WHICH IS LIKE TELLING THE WORLD WHAT YOU ARE DOING; SHAME ON YOU FIREFOX, THIS IS A SCREWY AND VERY BAD THING.

Since the new update was released I have been unable to figure out how to have the 'Open with Firefox' option for PDFs display the URL for the website and not my computer's program files.

I link a number of PDFs for my work and currently need to switch to Chrome to obtain the correct link, which is unnecessary and time consuming, prompt help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

I keep getting a Microsoft Edge download banner when I visit websites using Firefox as my browser. I have selected Firefox as my default browser in the Default Apps settings. I have installed an ad blocker, and turned off every notification switch I can find in Windows settings. I have taken ownership and changed permissions on every Microsoft Edge folder and file on my laptop. Then I deleted them all. I edited the registry to prevent Microsoft Edge from being downloaded or running at start up. I installed Winaero Tweaker and selected the "stop all ads in Windows 10." I still get the banner. Is there any way to turn this off?

So for example, on a website like https://rocketleague.fandom.com/wiki/Decal when i want to save a lot of images at the same time instead of right clicking each one individually what i do is, right click the mouse and select the “View Page Info” option, Click on the Media tab, select all the images i want to save then click save as.

Normally i would be able to save hundreds of images at once as png images so that i could use them, but with the famdom wiki website it is saving every image as an html document and i can't use any of them.

I have gone through all the google suggestions about changing about:config options even downloaded an addon to avoid webp/html images on sites but nothing at all is working, ended up resetting my browser and am still looking for a way to fix this.
