After the last Firefox update (83.0) it seems Google hyjacked my browser with asking to comply with their terms. There was no change of avoiding this popup even after trying not to use the "OK with all" button. Trying to suit the compliance with my choices took a great deal of time.

With the update I lost the most used links in my browserbar and when I open a new tab the same thing occured.

What went wrong and why did Mozilla "Let it happen"

HD Youtube videos stutter on only the current Firefox (in my case 78 esr)

Only one Browser has problems with HD videos (1080p + above) on youtube: Firefox in the most current version.

I have tested so far only the one current latest version of the ESR branch (78.3.x). But as visible from thousands of articles to this very particular problem (when i search the community help database for "Youtube videos stutter" i get multiple thousands of entries - i read only a handful of them to realize that they are all "closed" and not a single one "solved"), this problem persists since multiple years now.

I have a very old PC by my side with a very old Firefox (benchmark wise slower than my current PC by a factor of at least 3) ESR 52.9, which is able to play the same videos in the same HD resolution without the slightest stutter.

The drivers on that old system are - naturally - outdated by half a decade. THAT OLD OUTDATED system with THAT OLD OUTDATED Firefox is well able to play even multiple HD videos side by side. With-OUT any stutter.

Thus, you can easily deduce by logical reasoning that nighter any outdating of drivers whatsoever nor any outdating of anything else on the system, be it hardware wise or software wise, CAN AT ALL be the culprit of that stuttering.

While the former holds true, what you actually find in the communities help are completely useless and irrational tips of "upgrading the browser to the last version", "upgrading drivers" or "reinstalling any software" or the like.

Let me be clear: Nothing of the latter will ever help in overcoming the stuttering of current firefoxes at all. The only one measure that will help here is to revise the code that is underlying the video pipe.

Since the stuttering regularly only begins after about one to two minutes into the videos, it is strongly suggestive that something in the memory management - probably in the way resources becoming freed after use - is accumulating over time until the stuttering begins. Badly managed garbage collection, perhaps?

I use the star symbol to add bookmarks, and then when I try to look at those bookmarks that I have saved, I can't find them. They do not appear when I load the bookmarks tool. Instead I see Firefox bookmarks and a list of ancient bookmarks. Please see the attached image. I have clicked on all the links in the attached image, and none of them show me my recent bookmarks. Can someone please tell me where my latest bookmarks are hiding? Thanks.

Why when I open Firefox do I get a Pop up window that says "you must login to this network before you can access the internet" It also has a button attached that says " Open Network Login Page". When you push this it says "success". The circled ? does not do anything and other popups appear on my desktop. This is very annoying so how do I get rid of it?

When I open my Yahoo browser I get a pop up asking for my "Primary password". I checked in the Task Manager and it is present as Firefox that when I end that task then the popup goes away. I am already signed in to my Firefox Acct. I screenshot the popup below. It will return several time even if I "X" out or hit cancel. There is no other information no matter where I click on that box. I do not put any passwords in the box for fear of scam/virus/spoof ETC.

My firefox tabs has been crashing, and it has been getting far far worse. Practically none of the tab will open longer than 5 milliseconds. Other browsers works perfectly fine. I tried starting it on safe mode, no good. Tried clean reinstalling firefox, no good.

Can anyone help me why firefox is specifically crashing? About a month ago it worked perfectly fine.

When I visit the Yahoo website and click on articles to open them, some pictures show-up and others don't. When a picture doesn't show-up, there is a whitish box in its place that has a white wave running through it for a few seconds before turning all white. I did find that if I toggle the Enhanced Protection On and then Off or Off then On the pictures will load in the article. However, having Enhanced Protection always On or always OFF doesn't help. Any ideas on what I can do to get the Yahoo articles pictures to load all of the time without changing the Enhanced protection every time?

Thank you very much for your help!
