I will open a few tabs, then close some then open more , then everything slows down, I go to task manager and see that many tasks are still open under Firefox

I want tabs to close ( end process) when I close them

So now I manually 'end process' and the machine resumes speed

How do I get firefox to End Process when tabs are closed

this is w 8.1, don't know what version of firefox, pretty recent

this is firefox mozilla, as best I understand, not that I know why these two are always paired

So, back in the days when I installed Firefox, it would automatically pin it to the taskbar. When I opened Firefox, the newly-opened Firefox window appeared separated from the pinned icon in the taskbar. I liked this because it allowed me to open new windows faster. Now, I had to uninstall and re-install Firefox (the last version as of today) because of some problem. Now, this separation no longer occurs. If I open Firefox, the opened window and the pinned icon in the taskbar become the same thing. How can I fix this?

I am using Windows 8 Pro btw.

I attached a screenshot to show how it looks like.

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

If clearing history & deleting everything, wouldn't i lose items i want to keep ? I usually go through, deleting one item at a time, so as not to lose everything. This can take awhile ! What am I doing wrong ? I really like Firefox, by the way. I feel 'safe' using it, like the features, just everything about it !

Firefox has been updated on my PC at least 100 times. It ALWAYS brings up the screen asking me to verify if thiis program can make changes to my computer, Why? Is v 102.1 the latest? I don't know I see other comments about other versions.

And so many more issues I am about to pull every last hair out of my head. I don't even know how your Bookmarks work, nothing like I've ever seen. And, why does Firefox Browser open in different pages, sometimes. I'll have 2 rows or 3 rows of add-ons. Sometimes the font is so tiny I cannot read it, other times it's just fine.

I know what you are going to do. You'll give me some instructions with words that mean nothing to me. Then you'll provide articles I can read, and they mean nothing to me either. I AM NOT an IT person. I just want to turn on my computer and have it work properly JUST ONCE! Wouldn't that be great, then maybe twice in a row!

I thoiught i would be happy with Firefox, but I'm not. Just like I'm not happy with Windows platforms from 7 onward. Instead of making things easier for the everyday user all you do is make things more confusing and complex. I read some of the questions on this website and I don't even know what they're talking about.

I just want Firefox to WORK

I upgraded my video card in windows 10 64 bit. The card lets me connect through HDMI finally. But Firefox won't display as before. It now looks like the version of Firefox for my linked cell phones after trying multiple restore efforts. Did Firefox change so the desktop version looks like it was made for my phone? I linked my phone and it seems to have overwritten my desktop settings. Are they recoverable, as in older recent backups of my data still saved somewhere on your server? Thanks much!

I cannot login to an important account on a secured connection site. The last time I logged-in successfully was in late May 2022. Later attempts, starting in July, all failed. I then proceeded to trouble shoot by clearing the History’s cookies, cache, Browsing and downloaded history, followed by deleting Site cookies and Site data. I ensured JavaScript, Cookies and third Party Cookies were enabled. The above steps did not fix the problem. I further checked that the CPU time & Zone was correct and I ran a Norton Security full system drive scan. I also Refreshed Firefox and reinstalled Firefox (I did not clear any Firefox related App Data profiles in Windows. Using the Edge Browser did not help. The Internet security options TLS 1.1 to TLS 1.3 boxes were all selected. There were no errors reported when accessing the site. The above steps did not fix the problem. To further investigate the problem, I clicked on the site lock icon next to the address field which showed the correct site information followed by another lock icon and the clause that the “Connection is secure. I then clicked on the adjacent > arrow, which opened a new dialog box displaying another lock icon followed by “You are securely connected to this site” and “Verified by: “Sample Ca2” certificate. I then clicked on the “More info” to open the “Page Info window” (Note: you can use the Firefox Browser Menu/Tools/Page info for the same results. At the top of the Page info window it displays the following four tabs: General, Media, Permission and the Security tabs. Clicking on the Security tab it displays the “View Certificate bar” amongst other things like Password etc., to view the site Certificate, which, in my case, was valid until 17 March 2023 23. 59. 59 GMT. Everything looked ok to me. I am using a desktop PC and the latest Firefox Version (103.0.2) and Windows 10 Home(x64) Version 21H2 (OS Build 1944.1899). I then called the site personnel and explained my problem of login-in. They told me that there were no problems with the account. They suggested I try to connect to the account using

a cell phone, which I did, and I had no problem connecting to the Account.

I deeply appreciate receiving anyone’s assistance. Thank you.

Hello, jscher2000

I believe the last communication we had was on July 28, 2022. I had my last message pulled up and now I don't know where it is.

You had asked me the number of Profiles I had and if I remember correctly it was 8 or 9 not all active. The other big problem that still will not go away is attached and I hope you are able to open this attachment. I cannot open Firefox without this message coming up and now it's appearing on other screens.

Can you see the screen below that states "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser". Somehow, my information was changed to OS 8. I have never in my life used that OS, nor I have used 8.1. I have tried to change it back to Windows OS 10, but it seems to prefer 8. How do I fix that problem.

So, I read in an email I receive quite often that Firefox had updated to OS 104, mine did not change on August 23rd and my settings suggest it should have change since it's set to update automatically. I manually updated a couple of hours ago.

Now since I'm updated to OS 104 is there anything I need to do to make sure that the previous update isn't going to mess up, like it usually does, or do I need to uninstall something or another, do some magic tricks, or stand on my head?

I would appreciate your continued help. I have no idea where the email that I sent to you regarding the number of profiles I have, but I did see it as I was try to slug through this system of emails trying to find you and your last response to me on July 28th. If you can find that you will also find my answer to your question.

Thank you, Rhonda

Why I cannot change these settings:

  • Use custom settings for history
  • Firefox will remember your browsing, download, form, and search history.
  • Always use private browsing mode

I need this setting:

  • Never remember history

Or, maybe, that is the same?
