I use 118.0.2 (64-bit) because I do not like the newer versions, but every time I open it I have to decline two consecutive Firefox popups urging me to upgrade to the newest version. Since I open Firefox dozens of times a day, these constant popups are driving me crazy. How can I stop them? Thanks.

Every time Firefox updates, a Firefox shortcut is added to my desktop. In delete it because I already have a shortcut for it in the taskbar. How can I stop this from happening? I have tried turning off automatic updates and manually updating the browser and it still creates a shortcut. It's been happening for over a year and I am close to uninstalling Firefox completely and switching browsers.

I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

Recently I started using "Bitdefender Antivirus Plus". Now, every day, when I first use my computer, I get the following message:

    Suspicious connection blocked
    Feature:
    Online Threat Prevention
    firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security    certificate to t.sgc.io. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Is this something I should be concerned about, or should I "Add to exceptions"?

WHY IS FIREFOX EXE RUNNING ON MY GPU  ? -- Task manager (Win10x64 22H2) 'processes' shows 7 firefoxes running (task manager 'details' shows 15! with only 3 tabs open); nVidia GPU Activity shows 2 running on my GPU, I don't know whether these are included in these counts or are extra to them. To forestall (hopefully) buck-passing evasions: I'm running an comparativerly old but still working fine 4th gen 4-core (8 threads) i7 cpu with 16 GB RAM, so there should be no reason to HAVE TO tap into the 16GB VRAM. ///WHY/// is firefox running on my GPU at all ?!!???? why so many firefoxes?, why the discrepancy between 'processes' and 'details' ?

I need to know where I can find the Content Process Limiting Setting in Firefox, it's gone, or is not where it is said to be located. This is the instruction I found. "uncheck the Use recommended performance settings checkbox to enable some hidden settings. One of those settings is the Content process limit setting, which can be set to a number between 1 and 8"

Its using up to much memory on my already slow processor.  

Please help me stop the extra processes.

Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

Hello, today my Firefox offered me to try the "Translate this page" beta function within the browser. I agreed but now want to disable/delete this option and don't know how. I can uncheck the option to always translate the page in the menu settings after clicking on the icon in the bar. But I don't see an option to delete this add-on (it's not listed in the add-on section either). How can I get rid of it? Best, Manu

Hello, I'd like to disable the new translate prompt in Firefox. While I greatly value Mozilla's commitment to innovation, I've found this new feature to be somewhat disruptive to my user experience.

I speak different languages and therefore use websites in multiple languages and having this prompt appear multiple times is a bit annoying. I can’t imagine being the only user with this issue. It’s very irritating.

I didn't find a way to disable this feature in the settings. Is there another way? I know I can modify it by adding languages that I don't want to have translated but I'd like to disable it entirely. I know this might be a non-issue to some people but I just hate this popup and I don't want to see it again. Thank you very much!
