Hi....I'm fairly computer illiterate fyi....when it comes to problems and causes etc.

Out of nowhere yesterday, when I went into my yahoo email on my laptop (old Dell Inspirion 8 years old I think but works fine and takes a beating) a pop up bar at top of screen beneath task bar pops up and says that Firefox says this page is slowing down my browser and computer and gives me option to STOP it. Indeed...as soon as that message appears i can't do anything in my email....locks...freezes up. Other windows dragging at that moment. Once I close yahoo....rest slowly returns to normal. It's been 24 hours and I've shut it down, turned on again...ran my system mechanic as I do daily and Windows defender reports no issues. Yahoo email works fine on my phone....and this has never happened before.

      • Machine seemed to be running slow a few days ago and I googled about that (before Yahoo issue) and learned about the task manager and how Firefox may run a bunch of shit eat up your ram? Mine showed 10 of them running?? But today during yahoo warnings and freezes it had 4 running.

I took a screenshot of it after writing this but even the time it took to do that froze me up this time so bad I lost all the windows including this post and i shut it down. Powered back up 2 hours later and it started normally and restored my session ( I was shocked this post in progress was still here lol.) So I immediately closed yahoo window to avoid issues and tried to upload the screenshot below. But Firefox said the "image was too large"....really? I crop it down and try again and it's just spinning below for 5 minutes...so forget it. Now I can't post this with that image upload spinning endlessly. (put profanity of choice here)

Anyone have any insight or help before I solve it my way? (That's usually when i lose my patience and throw it against the wall. :)

I use a web based program called Print Shop Pro at work and have always used Firefox as my browser. The updates are automatic and have never been a problem before. This morning after the update, the file generator in Print Shop Pro is now coming up landscape instead of portrait like it has always done, and there is no way we can change it.

We print shipping and job tickets together double sided, they have always come out portrait before. Now they come out landscape this makes them 4 pages instead of 2 and the 2 extra pages are either blank or have just a little bit on them.

How can we get them to generate in portrait layout again?

When I click on some sites that have images from Instagram, I get a link where it says I need to go to Instagram to view it however, before that link loads, for a split second, there is an option that appears in the same space that has a toggle setting for "always show images from Instagram" or something like that. I click on it if I am fast enough but it doesn't save the setting and it will show when I click 'Next' to the next image.

I can't find anything in the settings to change this and I am not on Instagram, nor want to be, and I do not want to change browsers... Any ideas?

Hi, I don't understand what this means on task manager. My computer runs Windows 10. It lists "Firefox (41)" in the task manager with very high memory usage, although at the moment I have 9 tabs open. It doesn't change if I restart Firefox with fewer tabs. I've seen similar problems described elsewhere but I don't understand the solution given. I've seen something about finding "about:preferences" but I don't understand what that means. Is there a way to make this run better? Thanks.

For the last 1-2 weeks FF has started saving web photo files as .AVIF files instead of whatever extension the photo actually is online. I cannot find anything in the settings to change this. I am not sure if this was caused by an update, or something I did.

I am using Win 10 64, FF is version 95.0.2 (64-bit)

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

Ever since I got my new machine, running Monterey 12.0.1 Firefox will not copy images to the clipboard. Doesn't matter whether I use the trackpad, the menu, what webite etc, it simply will not copy an image. Copying images still works in Chrome, Safari, and all my other software. It's only Firefox (running version 95.0.2 (64-bit)).

Ever since version 88 or 89 Firefox has started being slow to load. I have tried everything. Uninstalled it, reinstalled it. Started it in safe mode. Started it without the 4 addons I use. Refreshed it. Started it as a new installation with nothing on it without signing in. People have tried to direct me to troubleshooting and basically threw up their hands and chalked it up to user error. All why Chrome and Brave with all the same settings and addons open immediately and run smoothly with no issues. So I know it’s not user error. There have been a few updates for Firefox but none of them fixed anything. No one has been able to help me fix the issue. I don’t know what it is and have never had this issue before with any browser. It’s slow loading the first time I open it and then works fine afterwards, albeit more slowly than Chrome or Brave. Also, Firefox is installed on my SSD drive in my gaming laptop running more than enough memory and with a Nvidia 1060 with updated drivers.

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

Hello, My school uses Google workspace. The logo of my schools appears as a broken image in Gmail/Google drive etc. when I use Mozilla Firefox (Ver 93.0) to login into my account. The problem does not happen if I use other browsers like Chrome or Microsoft edge. Could you please look into this problem. I am attaching a screenshot.
