I downloaded Firefox today. I received 3 messages that javascript is disabled. The first one was from Facebook (see screenshot). The second one was from Javascript when I was trying to figure out how to enable javascript (see screenshot). Yet when I checked about:config, javascript.enabled's value is "true" (see screenshot). The third one was from Firefox when I did a survey on why I decided to use Firefox (no screenshot). What am I doing wrong?

Firefox is constantly logging me out of webpages even while I am on the page. For example, if I'm in gmail I will login and 2 minutes later it will log me out, even if I'm on the same page. The same happens with many other websites. I've been watching a YouTube video and been logged out halfway through the video too. For Salesforce I have to receive confirmation emails to confirm that I am the right person logging into the account. I've tried other solutions on these forums but nothing seems to work. I have my cookies to save and use custom settings for my history. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Recently Firefox has become very slow to load pages. It starts up OK but is very slow to open the first page on a website, often over a minute. Once the first page opens however it will open links perfectly OK. It doesn't matter whether it's a bookmark I visit often or the first time I visit s website it's still very slow to open the first page.

I've tried everything I know (several times); I've uninstalled & re-installed Firefox, created a new profile, loaded in Safe Mode, removed all add-ons and re-installed them one by one and refreshed Firefox. Each method corrects it initially so I leave it a while then re-install each add-on in turn. I let it run for a day or so with each add-on and each time it runs fine. Until I get all add-ons re-installed! It always runs OK for a day or two (or sometimes longer) then it suddenly slows down again and will remain slow until I do one of the above again.

I'm running the latest version of Windows 10 and Firefox Quantum and I've also disabled the antimalware in Windows Defender but that's made no difference. By comparison I don't have any problems with either Chrome or Edge?

Any suggestions please?

A website I'm working on (http://dafluffypotato.com/hitbloq) breaks frequently in many different ways when the reload page button is pressed. The page itself is a static page and the HTML is correct when viewed in Inspect Element, which leads me to believe it's a bug with Firefox. However, the issue never occurs when visiting the page for the first time or when reloading the page by clicking a link on the page that links to itself. Resizing the Firefox window horizontally fixes the issue, but just resizing it vertically does nothing. For one of the ways the page breaks, the elements of the table get their height set to the maximum div height for Firefox. Changing the height of the broken element through the Inspect Element tool after the page has loaded fixes the maximum dif height issue. I was unable to check information through Inspect Element for the other ways the page breaks, because opening the inspect element tool on the broken page switches it to being broken the first way with the max height divs.

What the page looks like when it loads correctly: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-10-17-15-39-32-1eb7b8.png

The most common way the page breaks upon refresh: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-10-17-15-40-20-5d1d08.png

The max div height issue: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-10-17-15-40-52-cfea63.png

I am on version 69.0.3 (64-bit), but it the issue only occurs for some users even while on the same version of Firefox. It also does not occur on Chrome.

Even when I search in Preferences --> Search --> Find more search engines, Google does not even appear in the results. When I visit Google.com, the green plus sign does not appear on the magnifying glass in the search toolbar, but it shows up on almost every other site. Even on this Mozilla Support site, the green plus sign appears and I can add this to my search toolbar, but I can't add Google.

This all started when I updated my Mac to Catalina, but I don't see why that would affect my ability to simply add Google to my search toolbar. Someone please help, this is driving me insane.

Hi - I recently deleted SSLs from two of my websites and whislt doing so took all necessary steps to forced HTTP not HTTPS. The sites: 15rueduvieilhopital.fr & thetallskinnylattephilosopher.com load in all browsers and on all devices ok EXCEPT FF on my desktop (v69.0.3 on Mac OS 10.14.6) which keeps looking for the SSl and, because it can't find one, generates a security warning. For the record this doesn't happen in a private browsing window in FF. It appears that FF is somehow caching the SSL. I have deleted 'Everything' from my history and quite and restarted FF but the probelm perists.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the SSLs from the cache?

Thanks Martin

As question above states, I updated FF today to latest version, which included 'Monitor'. I am currently running Win7 (64-bit). All my Favorites (about 100 or so) have completely disappeared, as well as the Toolbar. I have been thru 'Recover lost or missing Bookmarks' and other similar sections, to no avail. I have re-installed my Norton Safe Search, but all my toolbar shortcuts have also disappeared. I thought that maybe a Restore Point to a previous time may re-instate my earlier settings, but dismissed this as it won't affect the programs that are currently on my laptop. That is correct isn't it? I am at a loss as to how to retrieve this vital information. If I re-installed to the previous FF version that I upgraded from...would it re-instate my bookmarks/favorites? Can it be done? U state in your 'educated guesses' that my only plug-in is Shockwave Flash...well I also had Badger (privacy), & that is no longer on the PC. It sounds like the upgrade "zapped" everything..,

Please if anyone can help me with my problem it would be much appreciated (I'll name my next puppy after you)...

When trying to clear my Cached Web Content in Options/Privacy and Security it will not clear to 0 but remains at 9.8 MB every time. i.e."Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 9.8 MB of disc space." I worry that this indicates a bug in my system.

Credit Union Australia now blocks my Firefox logins (Oct2019) and they tell me to use Chrome (which works fine)! My system backups from earlier months also now fail (just to prove it's not MY end) so I am convinced the CUA have changed something, and particularly with their haste to denigrate Firefox products. (I hope I'm not the only cua user in trouble, else I'm going to look Really dumb!). Hoping for a fix, but I can use chrome for this solitary site reluctantly. e= [private info removed] Carl. ps,I've tried resets & safe modes to no avail.

I was playing Backyard Monsters, then update came, game couldnt connect anymore , see prntscr link for sort like adress

1st error msg was like cant connect to the prntsrc adress, then it was a 404 and now 502 error.

first i thought its an server maintence, but day later still not working, i should get at least an flash message , allow or not, i try'd trouble shooting from basic till flash, i assume it should connect to a tracker or a script, so i even try'd go in security and choose advance and uncheck all, so all will be allowed.

http://prntscr.com/pk0ghg

i only use ff for the game, i even try'd firefox nightly, and with no account loaded, ccleaner full options on cleaner and reg. so i'm out of ideas, oh and google didn't work for years, only browser i haven't try'd is safari.

so i tryd, to be clear, basic, theme off, addons off, ccleaner, firewall, no account, diffrent firefox, flash TroubleShooting. and all this bc i allowed a ff update. *facepalm* but lesson learnd oh and maybe someone knows where i can get older firefox files, im not scared for sec. risks.

Hello,

When I tried to manually delete lot of entries (>2000) from browsing history (sidebar->search->select all->R.click->delete) Firefox used all of my memory and CPU for more than 10 minutes. As a result there where lot of writings to swap file and my PC was freeze until I was able to terminate Firefox.

I tried to reproduce the behavior with smaller set and the same happen on all tries. As an example I selected ~300 pages in history sidebar and delete them. The memory usage (for the process that used the most) went from 250MB to 800MB and CPU usage to 100% for ~2.5 minutes. During this time Firefox was almost unusable and the PC very slow.

All tests, including the initial problem, performed as first task after Firefox complete its load and without any network/web traffic by me.

I don't have the fastest PC or lot of GB of memory, but what I have should be far from enough in order to delete some entries with any additional "re-configuration" on the back, without "melt" it. CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz MEM: 4GB OS: Windows 7 (64 bit) Firefox: 69.0.3 (64-bit)

Do you think I have to report it a a bug?
