Just today, firefox began slowing down and soft crashing for minutes at a time. During this time, I can interact with websites, but it doesn't change the visuals or show that anything has changed. new tabs open but don't show up, youtube video audio plays but the screen remains fixed. Firefox usage for just 7 tabs is well over 5 gigatybes of ram and 10-20% cpu at all times.

I attempted everything on the help page, including: killing and restarting firefox, updating firefox, updating windows, restarting my computer, killing firefox and rebooting again, disabling extensions, and updating graphics drivers.

after rebooting with the new windows update, firefox ran smoothly for a brief minute and showed normal cpu/ram usage, but quickly climbed back up to pre reboot numbers.

Help! In Firefox 89 (as in all previous) all open tabs lined up at the top (first screen shot). When I updated to 90, they disappeared and only one (current) tab shows up at bottom right (second screen shot). I cannot find a way to see all open tabs as before - only when I close the current tab will the entire lineup of open tabs show for a moment and then go back to the single current open tab. I can't work this way and it's driving me crazy. I've searched online, tried changing settings in about:config and nothing seems to want to put all open tabs back up top where they were. What am I missing? (More - I am trying to upload a screen shot and just get the spinning gear. The file is below the upload size limit. I'm going to try submitting this anyway.)

I installed Firefox Multi-Account Containers and found it working OK, on most pages. On some however it prevents me from logging in, for example on https://login.blau.de (German mobile phone provider) I end up consistently in an error message that "for technical reasons this website is not available". I don't get this error when I login with a browser WITHOUT Firefox Multi-Account Containers enabled. Why do I run into an error when logging in on some sites, but not on all? How can I disable MAC for specific websites?

OK, been going round and round with this one. Looking for ideas here.

For whatever reason I am unable to post a link in posts of a favorite online forum I frequent. I click the little add url icon and a window comes up asking for the link. I enter it and click OK, the window disappears but nothing appears in the post. Adding text or pictures, modifying a post, etc, no problem. Every other feature on the forum works for me.

Forum Admin thinks it has something to do with Java. However I AM able to post links in other forums. I've also refreshed my Firefox with no improvements.

I can go with Explorer (not Edge) and have no trouble posting a link which suggests it has nothing to do with any other aspect of my machine.

OS is Win 10 current version. Firefox is also current version.

Normally this white bar on top (screenshot attached) was not visible, and minimise, enlarge and close buttons were next to the list of tabs, integrated into the theme. Does anyone know how to do that again? Honestly I don;t know when and how it broke/happened. I am aware that its a minor thing, everything works well, but it,s just bugging me, especially while using firefox at night (I have the browser set to dark mode, but this still is white and hurts my eyes. F11 doesn't fix it, I tried.

I've used Firefox for years and use it to access a Microsoft invoicing portal. But suddenly, after upgrading to Firefox version 90.0, the invoices I need to print from the portal are cutting off the right 25% of the page. I tried going into about:config and checking settings and tried several of the tips from the FF community. Nothing works and I'm absolutely frustrated by this. Hoping someone who has already dealt with this can share their solution. Thanks!

Hello how are you? I'm seriously considering switching to Firefox Browser to have more control over my privacy. However, the university makes use of Google Meet and the background is only enabled for Google Chrome and Chromium bases. So, I would like to know if there is how (modification in config, extension) to enable the functions. Thanks!

Hi, some shortcuts are so generally known and used everywhere and the fact that Firefox intercepts them changing their behavior may be confusing. Let's take Control B for example: it is generally used (e.g. by every online editor or composer, like Gmail ) to set a bold font at the selected text. In Firefox this triggers instead opening bookmarks list, which is highly confusing. Shouldn't this shortcut be disabled by default? Or at least create an extremely evident (e.g. in the welcome page after install) way to disable it. Thank you

I'm on Firefox 90 and facing frequent and intermittent problem of Google unable to load a search page from address bar. The same happens on youtube. Sometimes youtube also shows you are offline, check your internet. This happens intermittently, not always, so when Google or youtube is working and suddenly this happens and when clicked on a link, the tab hardly show loading animation for 2 seconds and then no activity.

Both the above problems are not faced on Edge or Chrome. I have tried uninstalling firefox and using older firefox version 87, but even the problems still remains. Tried disabling all addons too and this doesn't happen on any other website

Some have reported that the 90.0 update has messed with the Menu Bar text colour. In the "Dark" theme, the tabs are black, the Menu Bar is black and the Menu Bar text is black. I can confirm this on Linux Mint 20.1 and Win 10 21H1. I Also confirmed it to be working correctly on ver 89 for both Mint and Win. I also confirmed that the update for ver 89 turned on automatic updates for Firefox (Linux and Win) without notifiying me that it was changing my settings and ver 90 appears to no longer allow user control of updates.

Also, About Mozilla Firefox, Ver 90.0 (64-bit), says it's for Linux Mint 1.0 Is it possible that this is the reason the Menu Bar is messed-up in the Dark Theme?

An audio ad for Netflix plays numerous times a day. It only happens when I'm using Firefox browser. It's a computerized voice like "Cortana". It's talks over other apps like You Tube and Napster which is very irritating, especially since I'm already a member of Netflix. I'm really sick of hearing it and consider it an invasion of my privacy. I contacted Netflix helpline and they said they knew nothing about it even though it's an ad for their services. Also, nothing shows on my Task Manager when it's playing to help determine it's source. Somebody..........PLEASE HELP!!!!
