Firefox just prompted me to reset it because it... started... slow...

Not impressed that all my extensions seems to have been removed together with all my adblocker settings.

Can I get these put back in please? I'm REALLY hoping these have been copied into the folder on my desktop.

i do not want it available at all. I know how to hide it in the "additional tools and features" but it can be whipped out, tracks covered, and then hidden again . which is great for people who want double lives, but not so great for families trying to maintain accountability.

Good day to everyone,

The last few days i have a problem with Firefox browser , which is loading back to my home page.

I've tried many different browsers and many different computers to resolve this issue. I think i have the answer to this problem, but i think firefox developers needs to check this one out.

When a wordpress site is using any kind of Ads then it is happening. I ve tried to disable the Ads plugin , and the browser worked just fine. I also tried Ad-Block and this also did the job and didn't load the page back.

So do you think there is any way of fixing this bug because this a serious problem for my websites. If you like check for yourself here: http://www.lifeadvancer.com

Hope to hear some good news from the developers, thank you for your time , i hope to help some more people with the same problem ;)

Love Firefox but it looks like I'm getting real issues with it not releasing memory from closed tabs. I load 12 tabs and the memory is around 750mb, if I then close all but 2 tabs it only releases around 50mb of the extra memory.

1) Can I recover that memory some how 2) is this an issue or is it released later

So I can open firefox fine, but when i close firefox and want to open it back up I get an error message stating its already running and not responding, click okay and it restarts. I noticed that in the processes firefox is still running even though the window has been closed. I have tried everything to get this issue resolved- disabled all apps, try to start in safe mode (it wont because it wont re open just crashes). I have removed fire fox and did a clean install, checked all drivers are up to date.

I've been trying to comment on WordPress blogs anonymously (i.e. where you simply type in your screenname and email address) since the update to Firefox 44, and what happens is that it refreshes the page and takes me to the top without posting the comment. At first I thought it may be the moderator of the sites, but I wrote one and they said that they weren't blocking or removing my comments, so they are simply not making it through. I can't imagine which plugin or extension could be causing this as I've played with them to no avail.

Anyone else having this problem.

This has driven me crazy!

When I click on Firefox back arrow button (or whatever it's called) many history suggestions/results appear as a sort of drop down just below the back arrow button.

To put it simply- I DO NOT want to see them anymore.

For heaven's sake, don't reply saying, "delete your history".

If you're familiar with solving this problem I'd like to hear from you. Otherwise, don't reply.

Flash player was updated successfully, according to Adobe, but when I try to play a video I get a message that basically means I don't have flash player at all. Using Firefox help, I went to the plugins page to choose Always Activate for the plugin but it doesn't appear in my listing of plugins. I've restarted my browser, computer, and modem. I've downloaded flash repeatedly. I get 2 popup messages about Firefox disabling something but they disappear before I can read them or click on them. I have Windows 10, Firefox version 44.0.1 and was downloading flash version 20.0.0.306. Can you tell me what is happening and how I can fix it? Thank you

My P/C started automatically in safe mode a few days ago. I took it to my repair guy & he fixed it. When he tried to open Firefox, error message as stated above was displayed. Since then, Browser does not seem to work as well as before. I believe all he did was to download a fresh copy. My question - should I try a Refresh of Firefox to remedy the problem or can you suggest anything else to try first?

Firefox 44.0.2. Windows 7 Ultimate N with all possible updates/security patches.

I have my Privacy settings configured to Clear History when Firefox closes, and I have all possible types of history selected.

I have my Security settings configured NOT to Remember Logins for Sites.

I login to a couple of my yahoo mail accounts and a hotmail account, and then I close Firefox. I reopen Firefox, and as soon as I type the first letter of one of my usernames in the Yahoo mail or Hotmail login pages, the rest of my username is suggested in a pop-down box below the username field.

I have found no way to delete these usernames from Firefox even though the browser is not set to remember them, and Firefox is set to delete all of my history each time I close the browser.

How do I make this stop happening?? I want Firefox to forget everything, INCLUDING user names, each time I close the browser.

In some, not all, cases, whenever there is a video embedded on a website, there is a blank screen where the video is supposed to go. Youtube will usually work, but not the format of the video below. I know it's a browser issue since it displays just fine on Chrome (I've included screenshots). And I'm sure I have the latest version of Firefox and Flash

Linux Mint 17.3 Mate 32 bit Intel P4 3Ghz Noveau or Nvidia drivers doesn't change anything Firefox from scratch, zero addon, plus reset to be sure, and tested also with -safe-mode

PROBLEM: Firefox v.39 is perfect. Firefox from v. 40 is unusable because scrolling a simple html page takes ages. Even the scrolling of the source of the page. But no problem in scrolling the page about:config

What has been added in v.40 that wasn't in v.39? Is there any new feature I can disable to regain the speed of v39? NB: I've already tried the normal options such as those in the advanced tab.

This is more of a stalking situation. The person did have access to my laptop when we were dating but now has none but is still able to tell me what I am looking at in the browser. I have disabled sync as far as I can tell but this is getting out of hand and as I am pursuing legal action against the person I would greatly like to know how to keep the browser and secure it completely.

Hello. I followed lots of forum posts with information on how to restore a .js session, and I've done this long ago. I must be doing something wrong but I renamed "upgrade.js-20160315153207" to sessionstore.js and moved it to my profile folder. Firefox won't load this .js file. I looked at the file and see all my url's in there so I know it's there. I tried following my threads including this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1012716

I have firefox version 44.0.2. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

In the description of the new web push notifications it says "Firefox maintains an active connection to a push service in order to receive push messages as long as it is open. The connection ends when Firefox is closed. On our server we store a randomized identifier for your browser"

I understand that I can keep Notifications disabled (which is the default), to never actually receive notifications, however, by the above wording (found at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_upgraded-notifications ) I assume that even if I don't enable Notifications, that even though the web push stuff is opt-in per website, even if I never opt in, Firefox will still be phoning home the entire time I'm running it. So it will have a log of every time I start FF, how long I had it on, and when I exited. (Granted it's randomized or whatever, but the concern still stands.)

I don't want that... Is there a way to disable this always-on connection?
