Hello,

My Firefox routinely shuts down while I'm using my 2018 Macbook Pro, and the problem began when I updated my IOS to Big Sur This is a systemic problem with non-native apps ever since installing Big Sur. Apple won't address the problem unless I confirm that my non-native apps are compatible with Big Sur. Can you please confirm the most updated version of the Firefox Browser is compatible with Apple's Big Sur IOS? Can you also let me know if other users have experienced problems and if there is any fix?

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Normally use Edge. Using latest version of Firefox for something Edge doesn't do. I know how to get the Page Info (Tools/Click Padlock) but noticed in the popup context menu for this version that it is missing now when right clicking on a page or image. Only see View Page Source in the menu. Anyway to get the context menu back so it shows "View Page Info"? Maybe edit the "about:config page"?

Hello!

I perform some translations through address bar searches, which use the URL of a translation engine (Bing/Google translate).

One thing that I couldn't solve is how to encode newlines. Sometimes, the text to translate includes newlines. When I copy/paste, the address bar flattens the text, entirely removing the newlines. For longer texts, this makes reading the translated text more difficult, because the result is a single, very long, line.

I've tried pasting "%0A" and "\n", but they are encoded.

Is there any way to encode a newline via copy/paste into the address bar search URL?

Thanks.

I don't know how it happened and I don't care. There are a couple of search engines that I hate with passion. Yahoo and Bing. I was surprise and annoyed when I saw Yahoo delivering search results. I never asked Yahoo for anything and never will. Why are they then replacing my Google search engine? Did anybody , like me, authorized such search engine replacement. I love both Mozilla and Firefox, so when I saw Yahoo, one of my most hated search engines replying to my request, I was angry. In a way I felt betrayed. Doing things behind my back with entities that I don't want to deal with sounds like something Microsoft would do. Which brings us to my second most hated search engine. Bing. I feel the same way about Bing as I feel about Yahoo. Which makes it easier for me to: Request urgently and strongly that these two search engines (Yahoo and Bing), never handle any information I request from Google or Firefox or Mozilla.

I don't want Yahoo or Bing to know what I'm searching for, or what I purchase or what I might purchase. I know, they could get such information from other sources. Fine, let them. But don't become their continuum. I hope my urgent request gets implemented as soon as you guys and girls get this notification.

Next time you decide to have replacements of anything from the way my Firefox is configured, Please, let me know, and let me know where can I go to view such changes and/or edit such changes. Thank you

3 days ago Restore previous session stopped working. I lost a LOT of tabs. At the same time, firefox began opening to an empty tab labeled New Tab. When that New Tab is the only thing open in the browser, I can click the hamburger icon to get to the menu, but clicking Preferences does nothing. If I click the plus for a new tab, I get my actual new tab (which is Google) and the Preferences is accessible.

I have reset the checkbox for Restore previous session but it is too soon to know if that will hold.

I have seen suggestions to refresh Firefox as a possible fix. Is there a good way to set up to recover my extensions when I do that? Do I just need to reenable them afterward? Or will they be gone and need to be reloaded?

Have been running the current version of FF on Windows 8.1 with no problems for a long while.

Suddenly find that no download links work; Torrents, OneDrive, GoogleDrive - even the download link on FF's page.

Have found that I can right-click a torrent on public sites and copy the link into uTorrent and get a result that works. But won't work on private torrent sites - Invalid Torrent File!

Also lost the 'Display download progress' down-arrow from the task bar, managed to restore it after selecting Customize Toolbar, where it doesn't appear as an option but magically reappeared on the Taskbar.

Please help.
