I'm having a problem where certain websites does not show up as shortcuts on the startpage. Like for example reddit.com or twitter.com does not appear even though I visit those pages often and more than any other page. It doesn't make sense that a random website shows up immediately as I visit it once, but not the websites I visit often. So I have to type in manually in the search bar to get there instead of just clicking the shortcut on the startpage.

I COULD pin the websites on the startpage, but the pictures only show up as the automated pictures such as "R" or "T" for Reddit and Twitter respectively. I'm also having problems using my own pictures for the shortcuts and I'd rather fix the problem instead of having to pin websites as shortcuts. It also looks a bit ugly in my opinion.

This started happening after I switched Microsoft accounts on my PC and started using Firefox on another user account. By the time I switched, I was logged into the same account on two different users on my PC, and I synchronized several times. That other logged in user is now removed from my Firefox account and I also completely deleted the other user on my PC to free up space. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and deleted all the files on my PC, but it still doesn't work. I have checked in about:profiles and it says there is a "default-release" and "default" profile.

I have the same problem as described here [1]: when I open a markdown file in Firefox it uses itself as handler opening it in a new tab, which in turn opens it in a new tab, ... The solution suggested under [1] is how to make Firefox usable again, stopping it from open this particular markdown file. But it doesn't solve the actual problem: either Firefox is capable of rendering markdown in which case it should do it; or it's not in which case it shouldn't try. Does anyone have a thought on that?

Every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling settings on its own.

Specifically 2 settings on the general tab keep enabling themselves in the "browsing" section, "Recommend extensions as you browse" and "Recommend features as you browse"

I have disabled these settings dozens of times now, and every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling these 2 settings on its own.

Just now I updated to v128.0 and these 2 settings turned themselves on again.

Why is Firefox not respecting my settings? Why is Firefox allowed to modify my settings without my permission?

I have deleted and reinstalled Firefox already. I don't use profiles and am not signed into the browser, so no settings are getting carried over that way.

I have created a firefox plugin, whose job is to get the cookie from the server and set it for a particular website. I have plugin with same logic for chrome as well. For firefox, I need to sometimes toggle the permissions to make it work, but suddenly the plugin has stopped working. Its not even working even with toggling the permissions, earlier this plugin was working fine. The similar plugin for chrome works perfectly well, and for that I dont need to change or toggle any permissions. I am not able to identify the issue. It would be great if someone could help me with this.

ps. I'm currently using the standard FF verison and it runs smooth as ever....

Occasionally, and typically only after a reboot, Firefox starts consuming a significant amount of CPU time. This typically goes on for several minutes, and if I close and reopen Firefox, the process begins again. It's enough CPU that the fans kick on high through most of the process, and considering I'm only opening the browser (not even switching tabs to actively load any other pages), I don't know why it would do this. Similarly, if it were related to typical startup behavior, why doesn't it do this every time?

While I generally trust that this is intentional and is unlikely the result of malware, I'd still like to know why Firefox does this at all and what it's doing. I'm not sure if I can collect any logs or get any other info about this. From process monitors, it appears to be the main executable that's consuming the additional CPU and not any of the isolated instances.

I collected the troubleshooting information, and saved it, but I am hesitant to share without knowing what type of information is contained (and I can see some sensitive stuff like file paths)

OS: Ubuntu 24.04 LTS (Linux 6.8.0-36-generic) Firefox Version: 127.0.2 (deb) Build ID: 20240624183754

Twice, I have tried the following sequence:

1. Manually close browser 2. Closed Firefox in Task Manager 3. Refresh Firefox 4. Uninstall parent.lock and .parentlock files 5. Reinstall Firefox

Also observed several iterations of Firefox running simultaneously and using significant CPU and Memory resources.

This "Firefox is already running but is not responding" has gotten out-of-hand and I have switched back to MS Edge until Mozilla fixes their problem.
