My CPU usage suddenly began topping out when I would launch a Firefox session. I followed advice on-line to remedy the problem and created a new profile then deleted the old profile. As described in the on-line process I was following, when deleting the profile the option came up: "delete files and profile" or "just delete profile". I selected "just delete profile". How can I link the files from the deleted profile to the new one? Also, deleting the profile didn't improve the excessive CPU usage. I'm not very technical.

Thanks for any guidance on either or both issues. RF

What idiot thought it would be a great idea to replace "View Image" with "Open Image In New Tab"? Seriously? What the fracking hell. I used View Image all the time with a combination of Ctrl W to close tabs after saving images in bulk. Now you've deleted View Image to replace it with something dumber. Perhaps instead of replacing it, you should have altered its functionality to open a new tab if someone's holding Shift when they click it. Did you ever think of that? No, you were probably thinking about how to make Firefox worse. Ugh, why is firefox getting worse and worse with time? You guys keep taking away features and deliberately ruining the firefox experience, pretty soon its just gonna be another dumbed down clone of Chrome, the browser for the lower intellect. "Oh shame, too many buttons? Let us dumb it down for you. Configurations too complex? Here, we'll stupify it for you~ Its ok to be an ape level intelligence~"

You should be teaching people to be smarter, not bowing to their lower intellectual capabilities.

Now I've had to get a plugin to bring back the view image feature and this plugin actually does it better than you ever could have. Maybe its Mozilla thats getting dumber and not the rest of the world. Maybe their developers are losing intellect so they have to dumb down their own program so they can manage it. Who knows. I'm starting to suspect this.

Yea, I'm angry. You keep ruining Firefox.

Something strange happening with my Firefox for a few months, you can see the screens below. Letters disappear (but visible under selection or Ctrl+A), images are broken (but totally fine after being saved on PC), and all these acid green and pink parts make internet surfing a challenge. Refreshing pages doesn't help.

I tried deleting and reinstalling Firefox anew, without all plugins and stuff but the problem still was there. Cleaned the system with CCleaner, checked with ESET Internet Security. Google Chrome, Windows file explorer and all other programs are totally fine.

Please help!

Firefox removed the "View Image" option from the right click menu. You can "open image in new tab" but that is not the same thing and is not what I'm trying to do. The inconvenience of this removal is driving me mad. "View Image" was literally the only thing Firefox had for me over Chrome and I would really like it back. Is there any way to customize or modify Firefox to regain this option? Or if a developer is hearing this, can you bring back that option somehow? I don't want to run an older version of FIrefox just to have it work, especially with the security risk that poses.

Just now I was about to use <Zotero Connector> add-on. But I cannot find its iconic to click in toolbar as usual.

Also I found all extensions iconic were removed. I can find them in Add-ons Manager where only enable or disable is allowed to choose but, some of them should take extra user input to run e.g. save to cloud / save to local which, in previous days, are gotten via second click after first click on the iconic.

I tried to drag them into toolbars but found none available in candidates.

Could someone tell me Where can I run the second click?

Hi,

I'm using Firefox over various devices and systems.

For instance: - Firefox binary downloaded from Mozilla website and executed over Debian Testing - Firefox from Arch Linux official repositories in Arch systems

My doubt is: could this cause any problem with the Sync function? Or Sync has the flexibility to allow syncing between a wide specter of Firefox installations

For instance: Could I add Fennec from F-Droid to my LineageOS smartphone or Firefox-ESR from Debian repositories to my desktop machine, log in with my account in all of them and synchronize all the sessions without problems?

Thanks a lot in advance!, and let me know if I should add any technical information.

Kind regards!
