I did NOT enroll in any FF studies. Yet, moderator Cor-el said the app.normandy preferences will install new features and 'shield studies' anyways. I stopped downloading FF updates after v.84. I wanted to avoid the disastrous change to the print function that showed up on another computer. I spent hours trying to figure out what happened and how to get rid of of it. Nevertheless, Firefox installed this unwanted print 'update.' So my question is whether it is safe to turn off or delete all the app.normandy preferences in about:config ? Or do I only need to change the settings on a few? If so, which ones. What happens if I change these?

For the last couple of days, Firefox on my laptop too has started consuming too much RAM. Firefox is running continuously on my laptop from 9am to about 1am the following day. Last night around 1 am, I noticed that my Firefox froze and no window was responding. Seconds later, my laptop froze I was getting bare minimal response. After opening the process monitor, I found that a web-content process of Firefox was consuming 5GBs of my 8GB ram! I killed the process and restarted Firefox and things became normal.

Some time later, I again noticed that a web-content process of Firefox was consuming 1GB of RAM and the consumption was rising very fast. In about half a minute, that increased to 2.3GB!

What could be the bug and how can I fix it?

Using this PDF as an example, open it in FF and search for regional development (one space). It finds no hits when I do this.

If I search for regional development (two spaces), it finds one hit.

If I search for regional development (three spaces), it finds one hit.

If I open the PDF in Chrome or in Adobe Reader and search for regional development (one space), it finds two hits, treating the intervening spaces as one space.

I think FF should work like Adobe Reader and Chrome in this regard.

I'm trying to use a custom start page on new tabs opening (not happy that I have to use an extension for such basic functionality btw) but my service worker does not seem to activate or used when opening. Opening a new tab takes multiple seconds.

Navigating to the site (I have my start page hosted on AWS) on an existing tab is instantaneous, as is refreshing this page once the tab is loaded. So what gives? As far as I can tell Firefox doesn't install service workers on a per-tab basis, so there should be no issue here.

When I try to dowload a file, i fails and create a 0 byte file. I tried with repository firefox, and download the tar.gz from dev version. Both fail. I deleted ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla to start fresh and the error persist. I can browse, open a PDF in integrated viewer, but I am unable to save it. Other browsers can download files to ~/Downloads without problems.

Any hint of how to debug (and/or solve) the problem is welcome.

Thanks

For at least a couple years now I've been dealing with a common problem of consoles for both the Debugger and Style Editor appearing blank. It has persisted for several major iterations of the application and has begun to really impact the efficiency of the way I use it (I'm a web developer) sometimes literally leaving me no choice but to use another browser

I have not been able to identify any cause of this issue. It's appears totally randomly. Sometimes when the inspector is already open and I click around elements, sometimes when it's closed and I inspect an element. If one is blank, so is the other. I don't think I've seen them independently blank. Fixing the issue usually requires exiting the tab/creating a new tab or removing the tab from the window and then placing it back into the window. On rare occasions a simple refresh will fix it.

This occurs on both Mac OS and Windows 10.

NOTE: I primarily use FF Developer Edition.

I have a Bookmarklet that draws a red border on all elements in the web page.

` (function(){

   var e = document.querySelectorAll('*');
   var el = e.length;
   for (let i = 0; i < el; i++) {
           setTimeout(() => {
               e[i].style.border="1px solid red";
           }, 100);
   }

})(); `

This works fine on Chromium-based browser, but when I run this in Firefox it starts drawing borders and then all of the sudden a number gets written on the page. Everything is gone and a number appears.

I don't know why this happens, every other Bookmarklet works fine. It might be the script I wrote but I doubt it because it works completely okay on Chrome.

Running this snippet directly inside the console works fine.

With respect to this paragraph in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-firefox-address-bar?as=u#w_use-a-different-search

The recent updates are worsening the usability.

Before the update, I used to do the following steps in order to search anything using an alternative search engine:

  1. press CTRL + L to focus the address bar
  2. type my search query
  3. press ALT + ↓ until the desired search engine is selected
  4. press ENTER to submit the query

Now, after the update, an additional step has been introduced

  1. press CTRL + L to focus the address bar
  2. type my search query
  3. press ALT + ↓ until the desired search engine is selected
  4. press ENTER to confirm the selection of the search engine
  5. press ENTER to submit the query

Yeah, it's just a single keypress more, but multiply it by a couple of hundreds times a day I need to do that, and you will get why I'm taking the time to report it.

Please get rid of step 4

This fixed my problem with question mark boxes (which I have seen, then not seen, then seen again over versions of FF on a Mac): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178462

But the answer is 3 years old and nearly 30 FF versions ago, and furthermore requires lowering security. Is there a newer, better solution for fixing the problem with seeing question mark boxes instead of glyphs for certain fonts? (And one that doesn't require me to constantly toggle "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" in Preferences, which only works sometimes anyway.)
