Old FF used to have three rows of fav's to choose from that you could pin in place.

I'm wondering if there's a setting to remove pocket and highlights and just get a third row of my favorites back. I'm using FF 5.9.03 and Windows 10 version 1803 (OS Bu… (read more)

I'm running 59.0.3 (64-bits) on Windows 10. For example, this site: https://www.bloomberg.com/quote/SMIXVIA:AR looks completely different on Firefox than every other browser I've tried: Edge (on the same windows 10), IE (same machine) and Safari (both Mac and iOS) I've tried it in Safe Mode to make sure it's not an add-on issue and it still looks differently. I'm attaching screenshots from Edge and Firefox, both with Flash disabled. The one with the big chart in the middle is the good one (from Edge) the other one is from Firefox. I'm not sure if it's a CSS rendering issue or if for some reson the site shows different content to firefox (tried useragent override but it changed nothing).

Memory usage grows monotonically at some unknown point

MacBook Pro, OS 10.11.6, 8G RAM, FF 59.0.2, 64 bit.

I am having a specific problem that I think may explain a lot of the memory complaints people are having. In this case it's not that FF starts out using too much memory, it's that at some point it makes a big grab for more (hours to days later). It does this all of a sudden going from around 1G to 2.5G and then increasing. Processor usage goes from 10% to 90% at the same time. Eventually the program becomes unusable and the machine as well. I note a similar case here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1197254

In that case it was a specific website that triggered the rise. In my case, it would happen at random times. In the mac's process browser I noted that most of the CPU was being taken by one of the FF Web Content threads. I searched for that thread in about:memory. It was holding 300MB for youtube.com. On a whim I closed that tab and the problem went away. FF memory went back to 1G and CPU went back to normal.

Is it possible that something about youtube.com and the website mentioned by #1197254 is tickling a cache bug in FF? Overzealous pre-fecthing of video under certain conditions? I note that "about:memory/minimize memory usage" would quiet things down for a while, but only removing the tab fixed the problem.

The behavior still happened in safe mode. This is not specific to Macs, people on Windows are seeing it too.

Any thoughts?

How to prevent DOWNLOADING of video (not merely prevent autoplay) in Firefox

This may sound like word games, but I'm not trying to be funny, merely specific.

So I'm on a network with limited bandwidth. Therefore it's critical for me to understand what settings I can configure (if any) that will prevent the DOWNLOAD of video and/or large images from web sites.

For example, your basic site nowadays probably uses HTML5 and may use that vs. the old-style Flash plug-ins to embed video. And yep classic HTML links with references to image files for the images.

Back in the day you could configure a browser to ignore these references and then the browser would not even attempt to fetch the referenced image or video files. I've recently started using Firefox again, and I'm trying to learn how Firefox handles this in the HTML5 era (or rather what dumb users like me are supposed to do nowadays).

I'm noticing most of the help literature is regarding disabling settings of the auto-PLAY feature. However, due to my ignorance of modern Firefox, perhaps I'm reading it wrong, but most of it seems to involve disabling plug-ins that activate after the file is downloaded, not preventing the actual download. Similar to if I'm using Microsoft Word to view a DOCX file from a web site, uninstalling Word doesn't prevent the DOCX file from downloading. What I don't want to do is cheerfully disable the video playing while my browser still happily downloads the video in the background... because my main goal is not to avoid the annoyance of autoplay, but my goal is to conserve bandwidth on my connection.

FYI I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum on Manjaro Linux.

Thanks for advice anyone can provide in helping bring me into the "now" of modern Firefox, or who can point me to any further help articles or instructions to help educate me about this. If I'm over-reading and disabling auto-PLAY also inherently disables the downloading of the associated media, super, but that distinction is not obvious in any of the documentation I've seen so far.

Thanks!!

I am testing my own site. Where I need to log in with different User Accounts in order to check that aspect of IIS.

Firefox only allows me to log in with one account - visiting that site again just automatically logs in with that same account. It doesn't present me with the log in fields. And, of course, a browser doesn't have a 'log out' button does it?

I want to be presented with the log in fields each time I go there, so's I can log in as a different user.

So I found a thread here that was similar, talking about someone with the opposite problem - constantly being logged out. And the answer was in about:preferences and such. Well I couldn't follow that trail because about:preferences didn't bring up the options that thread talked about.

I suppose the answer is a cookies thing. I'd like to resolve this without having to delete all cookies. If I can.



edit: removed spaces before each paragraph which caused horizontal scroll-bars.

Have had issues with XHR calls holding on to the wrong DNS address. The DNS Cache Expiration is set to 60. The ip resolves correctly in every other DNS lookup available except Quantum. That holds onto the incorrect ip address until the network.dnsCacheExpiration is set to 0. Causing several customer complaints about Firefox, repeatable on my own version of Firefox. Our suggestion right now to users is not to use firefox while this behavior appears to be occurring. Would like to support firefox but can't if the DNS caching appears to be broken for some users and is turned on by default.

The example image shows the searched link, yet not showing the folder where is located.

Still looking for a way to search saved bookmarks then show where the bookmark is located in the bookmark folder structure. A keyword search lists all the bookmarks, then RIGHT CLICK menu Go to Folder, or show where in all the 2000+ bookmarks it is in the list.

'"Show Parent Folder" 'is what Firefox should have built in, but an updated add on would be helpful.

All websites are giving me an error. City & state governments and websites I used yesterday, etc.

I don't want to do anything foolish, but this has become tedious.

I have none of the AVs listed in your instructions and Avira never presented problems before.

This is just one example: budget.weho.org uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.herokuapp.com, herokuapp.com Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

For the last 3 weeks or so, I cannot install newly found updates for existing add-ons. Also cannot install new add-ons found on the Firefox add-ons page.

Every attempt to update/install results in "there was an error downloading" the particular add-on. I have no problem with other, non Firefox related program downloads.

Long time user of Firefox (and Thunderbird) - in last few days started getting the yellow bar warning about a web page slowing down your browser with the options to wait or... some pages I can click on wait and it will continue soon after, other times Firefox freezes and can only be stopped through task manager.

This happens on sites such as Google Maps, my financial institutions websites, etc. I've tried safe mode, refresh, disable all extensions, disable hardware acceleration, etc - nothing works..

I'm on an Spectre X360 laptop with 16 GB Ram, 512GB SSD drive, UHD display. Running Avast anti-virus. On 5Ghz wireless to 150Mpbs internet connection.

I installed Chrome to compare, not a single problem with speed and no yellow bar messages.

In past, I've had no problems with speed - even with multiple tabs open.

What happened? This just started out of the blue, at first I thought it was our ISP until I tried Chrome.

As I tried to enter my plugins below, I opened the add-ons manager and when I went back to the tab to enter them got the same yellow bar A web page... error! ON THIS PAGE!
