Too much disk access by inactive Firefox... with FR 88.0 64b and Win 7 SP1

Hello, First: Sorry about my English, I use an automatic translator

I need your help !

I recently installed an SSD on my PC and I see that two of the processes of Firefox makes thousands of accesses (1 proc has max Read and 1 proc has max Write on Taskmgr !) on this disk in a few minutes.

With Procmon, I got the list of these accesses becoming annoying with an SSD : these are mostly accesses on the "customDestinations-md" and on the installation directory of Firefox (moreover under x86 while I am in 64b) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox". Even without ongoing browse.

Why are they doing this and are they really mandatory ?

I specify that I do not have a virus or malware in activity and that the option to store "recently opened programs in the Start menu" is unchecked.

How can I stop this mess other than by changing from Firefox to another browser ??? Please help ! Regards Dom

for over a week I have not been able to access my Centurylink.net email.. when I have logged in and click the email button, the page brought up has a different URL than usual and page is blank. my email will work fine with the MS Edge browser. I have two computers, one using windows 7 and the other windows 10 and neither computer with the firefox browser will work for my email. everything else works fine in firefox. when I called centurylink last Monday they claim the problem is not on their end. I've cleared the cache and that didn't help. One computer is using Malwarebytes, but not the other. frustrated!

I have 2 OS's on my computer (on different drives) - in W7 my Firefox Master Password works normally but when I try to open Firefox when using W10 the same password DOESN'T work. I'd rather not lose all the stored info by doing a reset of it on the W10 OS. Is there another way to resolve it?

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

I cannot believe they set it like the present way that overrides your existing page as the default. Its like they've never used the browser. Such a bonehead move. Its especially irritating when you've been writing up something, pouring your heart out, then have it whisked away by forgetting that the pinhead designer is going to deem your present page of negligible value and wipe it out as it carries you to the History link. And to think it hasn't been changed in years.

Maybe something in About:Config can override this idiocy? I searched for "history" but didn't see anything that seemed related to this.

Looked it up on Add-Ons but couldn't find anything.

By the way Mozilla, its really time to employ negative filtration in the Add-Ons search. So you can put in a very general term (because you don't want to eliminate possibilities by being specific) then filter out the inapplicable results. Its called a dash and its been used for decades by Ebay and Google. Amazon used to use it but it gave us too much power so that was snatched away a while back. Say you're looking for something that will control the History function. When you search for History almost all the results involve wiping/deleting it. So by using History -wipe -wiping -delete -deleting the results get more relevant to my needs. As they say, cast a wide net if you want to catch big fish. The size of the netting filters out the smaller fish caught.

I created many themes using Firefox Color. Today when I went to the website (color.firefox.com), I can't see any of my themes. I tried logging in to my Firefox account, but no luck. It stayed the same. So, where can I find my saved themes? Or, is there any way to edit an .xpi in Firefox Color? Because I have the .xpi saved on my computer. Please help.

I have been a user of Netscape/Communicator/Firefox since the first day Netscape came on the market. I talked my father into buying a lot of Netscape stock the day it first appeared on the market.

It is time for our association to end. I am retired now and on a fixed pension. My ISP is raising their rates again to pay for the 1Gbps (or is it 10Gbps) service I do not use or need or have available. It is an across the board rate increase regardless what you use. It is time for me to downscale and the only other ISP to serve my area only offers 768Kbps.

I need to stop loading all the junk that appears every time I change what page I am looking at or that I follow a link. I have tried using about:config and setting permission.default.image to "2" and cannot stop the images. I have tried adding the AddOn ImageBlock and I still get the images. I have tried adding Ghostery and no more help.

As I am unable to block the images, it is with great regret, we have come to the parting of ways. I do not like Chrome but I can block the images there.

Good bye my old friend. I will miss you.
