Searched the forums and web, no one seems to have answer that I have found. Firefox 95.02, Windows 10 Pro, 8 GB RAM, Dell Notebook, fiber optic Internet 156 mbps Start by running CCleaner, disable un-needed startups, extensions, ad-ons, ect., then roboot, have clean slate. About 3 months ago, after about 15 minutes Firefox slows down, then quits loading images, then eventually quits loading whole pages. If I was blocking content it would not work for at least 10 minutes. This evening, 21.38 clean boot, start FF, go to Facebook, read notifications, 1 tab open, nothing else running 21.55 images fail to load, still one tab open Researched more and ran about:memory, memory-report.json.gz unable to figure out how to upload Run CCLeaner, I do not save cookies or cache after FF closes, reboot 22.04 start Firefox, 1 tab open nothing else 22.16 images slow loading 22.20 nothing loads, try other websites like NOAA radar, all fine Reminds me I saw at the bottom left "Waiting for static.xx.fbcdn.net" Screen shot of Task Manager attached, FF running 10 times, 154 kb image will not upload Failed to upload, copying this txt and starting over. Images loaded fine after reboot Facebook works fine on Edge, I do not have/use Chrome or Google Facebook is the only page Firefox has issues with.

file:/Desktop/Removed%20Apps.html On Thursday, November 25, 2021 9:02 AM my PC was refreshed, so says the Firefox icon that popped up on my screen, and I presume by FireFox because they removed about 25 Apps that I typically use.

1-How do I re-install them? 2- and why would they be removed?

thanks for assistance and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello Mozilla community! Merry Christmas!

I have noticed since yesterday (but maybe it is related to the 95.0.2 Firefox update) that Firefox tries to access some weird websites each time it starts.

The websites Firefox tries to access are various (non-exhaustive list):

Kaspersky Internet Security blocks all those access attempts and notifies me with a "Download denied" event and a "Probability of unauthorized software download" message (see uploaded image).

I immediately suspected one of my Firefox extensions, so I disabled them all... But the issue kept on occurring. Could Firefox be infected? (I ran Kaspersky Internet Security through my whole PC, and it found nothing ; I did the same with the free version of MalwareBytes ; nothing again).

I find it hard to believe that this behavior is normal and that these alerts are false positives from Kaspersky Internet Security... What do you think guys?

Regards, Jerome.

Hi Mozilla Community,

As of a couple of days ago, I've had trouble with my Firefox Extensions. The most apparent one being ads appearing on the sites I browse (I have the Adblock extension installed and active). The extension that reveals the "dislike" ratio on Youtube only works if I disable and then enable the extension, for each video I watch. My entire extensions toolbar seems faulty as well.

I've attached images to illustrate: - Rakuten just appears as a blank box upon clicking it - Video downloader extensions just appear as a white line (doesn't open at all) - Bitwarden (password manager) says "not available in private mode", even though I'm not using a private window

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt

I'm setting up a new computer. I have Firefox set up to have new tabs be the default Firefox home page. Those new pages display a Google search section but when I type in that section, the text switches to the address bar for the search. How can I make the search happen on the page, not the address bar? Under Settings/Search, it has a search setting section with only 2 choices - Use the address bar for search and navigation & Add search bar in toolbar. I've tried it both ways, and the same thing happens. My previous computer (both are Windows 10) did not have this problem. I could type/search in the Google search section. Thoughts?

Over the last couple of months, Firefox has taken on this odd behaviour of not showing the contents of tabs upon restarting it. As you can see in the image, all the tabs are 'restored', in some sense, but when you click on the tab itself, only a blank page appears. I have found that if I duplicate the tab, the contents will appear.

Thanks so much for any help -- this is really annoying!

Imported bookmarks beign overwritten by old bookmarks

[This happens on both PC (Win 8.1) and Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) with the current version of Firefox (95.0.2).]

I backed up my bokmarks on both PC and Mac as .json files due to switching laptops for my holiday (PC is personal, Mac is work). When I imported the personal .json file on the Mac, the bookmarks did get imported but all jumbled up - the folders were still there but empty and all the bookmarks were just dumped in random order in the Bookmarks Menu root folder. So I tried synchronising profiles instead which didn't work either.

Now I'm back home and of course the synch has messed up the bookmarks on my PC as well. I deleted everything, restored the bookmarks from the personal .json again, and it does restore them properly for about 2 seconds and then all of the neatly sorted bookmarks in their folders get overwritten again by the jumbled mess. The same thing happens when I restore from the automatic restore point instead (from a day before my holiday).

I have disconnected the snych, restarted and updated several times, and tried this on both PC and Mac with both the personal and work .json files, with the same result every time. I have about 1200 bookmarks in total so I would love to be able to fix this without going through all of them to put them back into their respective folders manually. Any idea how I can fix this?

Hi,

A few days ago Firefox on my Mac laptop (macOS Catalina) suddenly stopped suggesting sites I'd visited in the drop down on the address bar and is no longer auto-completing as I type into the address bar. It is set to auto-suggest based on pages from history (I unset and re-set that in settings), and to remember history. However, I noticed today that the history is near blank (it has 3 tabs from a local network page I visited but nothing from outside my local network).

I also noticed today that the copy on my laptop is no sharing with my other instances (work computer, phone). I can send tabs to it, but the tabs that are showing as being "current" when I look at other machines are from before this happened.

I've tried rebooting and restarting Firefox, but I can't seem to find any fixes for it.
