For the last several weeks, the reliability of Firefox has went off a cliff following an auto-update. After a few hours of browsing, it gets to the point where the tabs load extremely slow (or not at all). When this happens, I exit and relaunch.

Previously, it would be nearly instantaneously where the windows would close and the firefox.exe process would cease within seconds. Now, it's taking upwards of 5-10 minutes for the process to stop AFTER the windows have closed and, during that time, it'll bring the system to a near crawl. Once the process finally closes though, everything is back to working fine.

Currently my firefox has many userids stored. I want to delete **EVERY** single one of them **IN ONE SHOT**. How can this be accomplished?

Before answering, please note the following:

1) I do not want to use the SHIFT-DELETE trick. Why? It's a lot of userids. It would take too long, some would get missed. I want to delete ALL of them ALL AT ONCE for EVERY website.

2) The Saved Logins screen doesn't work. Why? Boy that's a good question. Apparently the Saved Logins screen only saves userids if you've also allowed it to save the password. I always decline when firefox asks to save passwords, and thus, when I open this screen is says "No logins found".

3) Clearing cache and cookies does not work. After I do that, those logins are still suggested to me.

4) This has nothing to do with being sync'ed, as I never login to firefox to use their browser. Never.

Any ideas?

I have tried every fix I can find on the internet with no help. (about:config, settings etc.) I need to cut down on multiple instances because it is slowing me down in an online cad application. Is there any way to limit these when I am using just one website?

Sky is a satellite television firm in the UK it also does a Mobile Phone System and Broadband Internet access.They also do email run by Yahoo. It is nothing like Skype. Now and again on the email it tells me the internet has dropped while I am using it, The PC says its still connected and the modem lights are on. If I then use Google Chrome its OK. I am not using wifi as I am now wired. Although yahoo email says "not connected" other sites are working OK. This fault is Firefox and before the last maybe 6 updates it was OK. I have been with Sky about 25 years and been using Monzilla about at least 10 years. I always delete the cookies each day.

It's 7 months since the last thread about failed downloads and there was no solution found then. Is anyone still experiencing failed downloads (from yahoo, aol mail servers especially)? Answer - I am! I have to keep using Chrome (which I don't like, it's slow) and I have all my bookmarks in Firefox and it's a quick browser. Please Mr Mozilla, fix this issue! As posted back in 2021, the feature suddenly stopped with the update at that time (around 102 or earlier). Now we're on 106.0.5 and still not downloading.

Lately every time you release an update you break something in how Amazon is displayed. Not on all pages, the initial main page is fine, but if you try and view any lists or past purchases the display is unreadable. I've noticed this in the past, but this time it happened right after your last update, so I conclude that's where the problem lies. The attached screenshot is of my Amazon Wishlist. If you have one of those you'll notice the appreaence is way off. And BTW I was trying to delete the list, or perform any of the other actions that result in those warnings. Thank you.
