I monitor the temperature of my PC's CPU with a program called Core Temp. The CPU gets up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit when watching videos. Stayed between 100-115 degrees Fahrenheit when I was using Chrome. The temperature is around 98 as I write this, no video playing. Why is this?

Firefox Suggest and Bookmarks Broken

Due to a recent update, Firefox has changed its search results in the URL search bar.

I used to be able to turn off ALL search suggestions other than bookmarks. However, now it shows expanded results based on my bookmarks that are actually NOT bookmarked pages.

NOTE: This appears as separate behavior from Firefox Suggest. However it is linked to the settings for Firefox Suggest. The heading "Firefox Suggest" in the URL bar provides the correct link.

For example, I have a single page bookmarked from wrapbook, but instead of suggesting that bookmark it suggests the root domain/homepage.

I have no interest or purpose in visiting that homepage, but hitting enter it will autofill to that page. This is super annoying as it's not in my history or bookmarks.

Turning off bookmarks completely in Firefox Suggest settings fixes this behavior, BUT it means I have no access to my bookmarks from the URL search bar. This makes it a 3 step process to open bookmarks then, and is a poor UX design.

I have copied my settings and example screens below for reference.

I'm using the current version 118.0.2 (64-bit). Windows 10 Pro x64

Previously I turned off all search suggestions and it worked correctly. Just FYI, I also whitelist all websites and use restricted/strict cookie settings. The only cookies that are retained between sessions are those that I manually add to the "exceptions" section of settings. All other history and cookies are cleared.

Good day. I just noticed that saving a bookmark to an Amazon page shows the full address in the title of the bookmark now, instead of the description of the page. I checked and this does not happen on other sites, like YouTube, where the video title is still given correctly. This make it very hard to find the bookmarked Amazon items. Thank you for your help. Love Firefox! PS: I'm a Firefox "Power User" when it comes to Bookmarks. I have over 8000 bookmarks and regularly back them up. I have some other suggestions regarding Bookmarks in Firefox if you are interested. Regard, K

New to me Surface3 pro tablet. Have FF on my desktop, want it on the tablet and synced with the desktop. Download and install were fine up until i went to log in on the tablet. I mis spelled the email address and did not notice until the codes never arrived. I cant find a way to get FF to "forget" what i entered. I uninstalled hoping that would do it and deleted the FF old data file it saved on the screen, but no matter what i do it keeps coming back to the old misspelled entry and does not let me log out or change it. What to do! Tablet is running W10 Pro Send this from my desktop also running W10Pro

So because of the name change, I am prompted to ask "do I even have an account?" The fact that I am able to even ask you this question must mean that I do. I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for years and never new that it / they needed or came with an account. So I apparently have an account. Now what? What can or should I do with it?
