Recently, firefox added an annoying feature that throws unwanted popups into my face: Website translation.

I want it gone. I can't seem to find any switch to get rid of that garbage in the preferences. I'm not scared of about:config but the best I could find was a list of languages to never translate.

How do I globally and eternally disable website translations?

Greetings, I have a website for my small business and I do a newsletter for my customers. The newsletter includes links to my home page, which is a fully qualified domain, https://www.prettypennydesigns.net/ When I check my newsletter, the link to my website goes to Firefox's home page. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? I also have a link to my contact page and that link does work. Thank you so much for any help!

OS - LinuxLite 6.4 fully updated as of this writing FF - 117.0

I just created a new installation of LinuxLite. Upon finding that Firefox was no longer the default browser I installed it. Apparently snapd is a pre-req and it too was installed. The installer does not automatically create a link to launch it and I have to do a search for FF. When I launch it, it seems to run fine. However when I try to restore my bookmarks from a recently created backup, which came from another system, I cannot. From bookmark manager when I select restore and then choose file, nothing happens. No popup window to select the file appears. Likewise when I try to import from an HTML file and choose file, again nothing happens. I imported the bookmarks to Chrome from the HTML file then tried to have FF import from another browser but FF says it can find NO other browser with bookmark, history or password data. Any suggestions?

After a recent update from Mozilla Firefox, I have these pop up windows that slide out from the bottom right of the screen of my laptop.

They stay there and interfere when I try to use the slider on the right hand side of the screen. Even inactivating my cursor. I have to click onto the pop up box to make it go away. Sometimes it takes me to a stupid article about Harry & Megan or some inane story.

How do I get rid of this? (I need step-by-step instructions please)

I'll NEVER upload another Mozilla Firefox update.

I might find another browser to use.

I have chosen a colorful garden theme for my new Firefox browser but now I can barely see my taskbar and any text above the taskbar. It is all very small and white. The main screen area below is white. I would prefer black thicker text for that area but don't see how to do that in any of the articles I have found. I don't want to make all my text bigger, just the Firefox specific headers. Can anyone help?

I'm not able to log into at least two different websites after installing Firefox on a brand new computer (e.g., actblue.com). The page merely reloads as if I didn't enter the log in information correctly.

  • The websites log in just fine on Chrome, so I know it's not an issue with the websites per se. So it seems to be limited to only when I use the Firefox browser.
  • I've disabled extensions, removed them, and tested in Safe Mode, but the problem persists. That leads me to believe the problem is something with the Firefox browser specifically.
  • Cookie restrictions are only on Standard, not Strict; I even using a Custom setting to allow cookies to be tracked.
  • I've tried clearing the cache and cookies.
  • I've deleted the cookie file, thinking it might be corrupted.
  • I've restarted Firefox several times.
  • I've restarted the laptop twice.

None of that has worked. I'm out of ideas.

I still have no idea why Mozilla took away the ability to limit Firefox process, or any of the customization that was Firefox's selling point to users, but multiprocess is a detriment, not a boon.

How can I limit the number of processes? I can't do anything else on my computer when Firefox is using 50% of my CPU processing, even with only a single tab open.

No, I don't need to remove add-ons; I tried going that route, and even with no addons at all, there was absolutely no improvement on how many processes and how huge those processes are. I've had Firefox processes exceed 50 Gb, even on a single website with no images and no scripting.

If there's no way to drop the number of processes Firefox always opens, from 12, to no more than 3, you're going to lose a user that formerly depended on Firefox for well over a decade.

Firefox is no longer what it was originally. It's unrecognizable as the single most customizable browser there was.
