Since I installed the latest version of Firefox (under Win10), frequently my PC slows down to a crawl. The task monitor then shows 6 or 7 Firefox applications running and using almost all my storage. My PC is not the newest, its an old HP with a gigabyte main storage, but Firefox seems to multiply its processes without limit. Is there any way to limit this?

Since I started using Firefox many years ago I have allowed it to remember history and every couple of weeks have delated the oldest history pages. Recently Firefox history covers only today and this page disappears when I close Firefox. Firefox is set to remember history but the function seems to have gone. How can I resurrect it?

Hi, I am a bit of a panaroid person, so regarding to the permission: "access my data for all websites", does that means an add-on can make input in the background by itself?

I know my description is a bit confusing, so what I am thinking about is: whether an add-on is able to control my account on a website, changing the settings, password, and etc?

The add-on I am considering to use is uBlock Origin, I trust the developer and Firefox Recommendation, I am just worry that one day if the developer's account is hijacked, at least I can make sure it doesn't have the ability to hijack my accounts.

Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

Hello

I've been using linux for 3 years now but never before fedora, i just installed Fedora 34 KDE and im having issues ive never had before, im wondering why and what i can do about it.

for example, ctrl+c seems not to be working. i have to look up a lot of guides and copy a lot of commands from websites using firefox and i want to paste them in the terminal but its finnicky, often doesnt, i cant quite get a hang of when it does and why sometimes it refuses.

another issue is ctrl+w works to close tabs but ctrl+f4 doesnt, but alt+f4 does work. what the hell?

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?

I reinstalled Win10, clean install. Reinstalled Firefox, v88 and imported my bookmarks (.json). Took a while (36.4Mo) but they got imported and I got to sort the latest bookmarks them into folders and tags while I transferred files from a hard drive. Trimmed them to 31 Mo and saved a backup. Exited firefox. Later I launch firefox to install addons and notice all my latest bookmarks have vanished. All my tags are gone too.

When I check to restore my backup, I have the choice between - today's automated backup (11 Mo; 110.000 items) 100.000 items, that is, half of my bookmarks. - ... or my manual save I did. Restoring my manual save returns the bookmarks and tags. But they disappear when I exit firefox. Sitting for half a hour for my bookmarks to load each time I launch firefox is not a solution. I estimate there's 70k to 100k links and 1k tags missing.

I have one only profile. Fresh, latest FF, no addons. No clue too.

Hey, I want to make the UI slightly larger; I have found that modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config works the way I need it to. However, when using multiple screens with different resolutions, the scaling no longer appears consistent between those screens. That would make sense (since it's a per-pixel configuration), but I couldn't any configuration option that only acts as a modifier for the standard scaling mechanism. I'm using macOS (10.15.7), Firefox 88.0. Attaching a screenshot taken from both screens together (not sure how macOS handles the difference in resolution when handling screenshots, there's definitely some magic going on with macOS screenshots in general; either way, it shows the problem really well).

Hi,

This is a specific problem whose solution I was unable to find, which is why I am posting here. For quite a long time (I'm not sure when since it has been long enough that I have more or less accepted it at this point), I am having an issue with page loading while I have an Ad Blocker installed. It doesn't matter which one it is, as long as I have one installed and enabled, it takes around 3-5 minutes for any page to load when I first start Firefox. This is especially prevalent when I have just started up my computer, compared to if I had used Firefox just a while ago and am opening it again, in which case the duration is shorter, but still around 2-3 minutes.

I have tried multiple ad blockers, such as uBlock Origin, AdBlock, AdBlock Plus and AdNauseam, but I'm facing this issue with all of them. I know it's the ad blocker because whenever I disable it, the pages which were otherwise not loading, load immediately, but with ads. If I enable the ad blocker again, I still have to wait the duration I would otherwise have to, for the page to continue loading or website to continue working.

I would like to know some way around this issue aside from disabling the ad blocker altogether, or a suggestion for a different ad blocker would also be welcome, as long as I can get rid of this issue.

Current Firefox version: 86.0.1 (64-bit)

I've had this issue persistently over several versions over the last couple of years.

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??
