Yahoo has hijacked my searches from my Bing homepage and also from my Google tab in menu bar - I need to get rid of it as I find it select items that are of no interest and ignores what I have requested as my search.

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

I need to use an earlier version of firefox because the "Google Translate In Page" addon was killed by Firefox, and this disabling has LITERALLY caused the continuous death of Covid-19 patients because we can't read about the lifesaving Covid-19 treatments on foreign sites, whose therapies are further ahead of the U.S.

I need to verify that when I load the prior version, it will allow the use of the previous addon once it's added from the addon list.

Please confirm as quickly as humanly possible.... Thank you!

When I'm using Firefox, I'll click to a link on a website and it takes me to another page. If for any reason, I close that page, I can't get back to the original website. Shouldn't it show up as recently closed? Where can I find it?

I do not know what json files are. I have only seen them in the profile. However, whatever their purpose, firefox is no longer processing json files. Instead, it wants to download json.txt when I make some selections.

Example: on Youtube when signed into my account, I select "notification" and instead of the menu opening, the download box appears wanting to download json.txt. This has happened in numerous places - not only youtube, so it looks like a Firefox problem.

Firefox used to process json files and now wants to download them. I tried to configure json in options, and when I select "other" Firefox shows up as a choice it it not possible to select it. I select it, but it does not change the ONLY options for json files which are "always ask" or "save".

This is clearly not something I can fix, not something I caused. I need the features that are not functional, and apparently they have become dysfunctional because they apparently access json files but no longer process them as intended.

Would appreciate knowing what the problem is, if there is an explanation. Is there a fix? Do I need to configure something? Thanks. Mary

I use an app that enables me to scan an expense to pdf, then opens the pdf file so I can see the details to enter the amount, supplier, expense type, date into the bookkeeping system to create the bookkeeping entry and attach the pdf to it. I use Firefox as my default browser (version 83.0). However, I cannot see the PDF data anymore - it is totally blank, so I cannot use the functionality. I have queried this with the bookkeeping support who say this is a browser issue. If I use another browser e.g. Opera the functionality works fine. Can anyone suggest whether this is a Firefox settings issue or suggest a fix? TIA

Hi,

I have several issues with my FF that it's unusable for development. I'm giving it a third chance as I really want to keep it.

- CSS is not listed in the network tab - JS cannot be opened in debugger - Source maps partially or fully stop working (e.g. in CSS for some elements it shows the source, for some don't) - Disable cache in network checked still loads assets from cache

Not all issues from above happen at the same time. Restarting the app, refreshing the profile or opening in the private window shuffle the issues.

What I tried so far: - Refreshed Firefox (from the troubleshooting information) - Restarted normally (from about:profiles) - Reset my profiles - Tried without singing in to FF account - Deleted the app and reinstalled it

It is a local project running in Docker, but the same project works in Chrome. No changes have been made on my side. I'm a Chrome user and would really like to switch to Firefox.
