I can't turn off the 'browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory'

I followed the instructions at [[Unload inactive tabs to save system memory in Firefox|https://mzl.la/3AdRbLx]] but I still occasionally see the tab refresh when I select it. I start with a search on Bing, click an article to open a tab, follow links from there, back to the first tab and select another. I repeat this until there are several tabs open. Sometimes the page refreshes when I switch back to one that I previously reviewed. Is that controlled by the option browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory? if so, it doesn't appear to be working. [Edit] - The last time this happened I checked my system and found 10gig used of 64gig installed. I'm using the most current version of FF 120.0.1 on Windows 11 Pro v 22H2.

Always when want to use the Website "Weather.com" my tab brakes down with the announcment" Der Tab ist gerade abgestürzt" which means: the tab just crashed. I do not know why this happens. Does anybody has a suggestion what I can do? I use a MacBook pro from 2015 with OS 12.7.1 and Firefox 120.0.1 Thanks so far Tobias

Can't stream Peacock anymore

Until the most recent update, which came along with a Microsoft update, I was able to stream Peacock.com but now I'm getting an error message that my system configuration isn't compatible with Peacock. I have also had issues with YouTube, which keeps telling me that I have to disable adblockers - which I'm not running. I had another unrelated problem that I fixed by doing a system restore to before the Microsoft update, so there should be no issues with that end of things. It has to be Firefox because I can still stream Peacock on Microsoft Edge.

So, does ANYONE have any idea how I can fix this problem? I much prefer using Firefox to Edge and I don't use Chrome.

Thanks.

Dear Community,

Just like to ask how I could get Firefox to show a dark mode for all apps that I open, please? I know that changing the settings on Firefox to Dark makes the browser show only a dark mode. However, when I search for other sites, they show up as a white background. How can I change this, please?

Repeated login prompts after successful login to password protected website

Greetings...

On a daily basis, I access a group of websites that use the same username and password for login, so logging into one of the websites automatically enables my access to each of the group websites, as a result of a cookie created by the initial login. As a result, I encounter only one login challenge as I actively access each of the group websites.

However, beginning in October, I began to experience repeated login challenges after I had successfully logged into one of the group websites. The repeated login challenges occur randomly whenever I selected a hotlink within the website. The repeated login challenges occur either within the website that I initially logged into or one of the subsequent group websites that I selected to access.

The only changes to my Firefox web browser have been the periodic version updates. I have tried making changes to the Firefox Privacy & Security settings, but the repeated login challenges continue.

I have also contacted the group websites support and advised them of this problem, but they have been unable to provide any assistance.

Could the repeated login challenges be caused by a periodic version update to my Firefox web browser? If not, then what else might be the cause?

Thank you in advance for your help!

I had Firefox 120.1 on a Windows 11 Pro 23H2 system and everything was fine, then today Firefox updated itself to version 122 and all my bookmarks / settings and saved passwords disappeared. When I went to the bookmark manager there were no backups to restore but when I searched the C: drive for "Bookmarks*.json*" I found dozens in the profile that Firefox is currently using (about:porfile shows my default and there is only one profile on the computer) and I copied the most recent one from a couple days ago and used the bookmark manager to restore it. However I've lost all my saved passwords and I absolutely need to get those back, how can I do that?
