So, right now, I am using another web browser and that is because when I use Firefox, it checks for updates way too often. Every five or ten minutes it checks for updates and SLOWS my internet down. Is there a way to change this frequency? I do not want it to stop or anything, but why every 5 or 10 minutes does it have to check for updates? The older versions of Firefox, you could change the frequency and such of this. This made the web browser usable for me because I am on a slower connection.

Every now and then Firefox crashes without proper crash report. I have checked my PC's reliability history crash logs found that BitDefender causes the crash. Does anyone experiencing the same thing? Do you any fix for this problem?

As I read my local Newspaper, the text jumps up and down as adds change, making it impossible to read. It doesn't happen with Chrome. Several sites say that Firefox now offers "Scroll Anchoring" to fix this, but Firefox Help doesn't list any such feature.

I am upgrading my PC from W7 Home Premium to W10 soon. I understand this will result in a complete reimage of the PC and all existing files will have to be restored. I currently use a Seagate external hard drive as a system backup. Can the W7 "backup" Firefox file on the Seagate be used to restore my existing bookmarks to the new W10 Firefox download? If so, how do I do this?

Hi,

I have been using Firefox as my default browser for a long time now. But recently I am facing issues with the browser. The browsers keeps om crashing in every 10-15 min. At first, individual tabs were crashing but suddenly after that the browser started crashing which in turn resulted in my system shut down. I have checked both the browser and windows, they are updated to the recent version.

Every time I would click on certain files my professors would post, it would open up a new tab and ask if i wanted to open up the tab in firefox. I click yes, and it opens up a new tab and repeats. Eventually I clicked "do this with all files from now on" and now when i click on the link, even in a completely different browser, it opens up firefox to endless tabs and I have no way of stopping it other than closing the entire browser multiple times until it ends. How can I change this? It's extremely frustrating.

Reader View fails to pick up tables in items such as https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/modules/windows-prepare/outline-compatibility-workstream however other browsers display the entire table structure.

How can I get Reader View to display all tables and thus narrate these?

When I'm working, I usually like to have two windows open using screen partitions. I frequently will drag a tab to another window or create a new window by dragging a tab to an empty space on my screen. Sometime in the last couple weeks, I noticed that this no longer works for me. I checked about:config in the address bar, and tab detach was still set to true. Does anyone know what might be going on and how I can fix this?
