So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

This problems started with FF 84.0.1 and continue in 84.0.2

After using Facebook Watch on Windows 10 for a while, Process Explorer will show one Firefox Process with a huge amount of memory, which takes up to two minutes of high processor usage to be released once the tab is closed. This slows work with the other Firefox tabs. Firefox Task Manager "forgets" about it as soon as the tab is closed. This does not happen on Android.

This problem has been around for a long time. Just thought I'd see if anyone has any ideas other than not watch FB videos.

I have 2 separate firefox accounts, one is my personal profile and the other one is for school. I recently made the switch from brave to firefox and I had the same thing but the profiles were pinned to the taskbar for easier access. I cant do this for firefox because i pin one shortcut and I right click the other shortcut but its connected to each other so it shows unpin from taskbar.

Good evening. I have recently broken my laptop screen, and I was able to transfer my profile onto my work laptop, on which I have just installed Firefox (84.0, Windows 10). After installation, I was able to retrieve open tabs, bookmarks etc. although, whenever I turn off and on the laptop, I can use firefox for like a minute, then the firefox icon on the desktop disappears and the program gets killed. Firefox is installed though, because I can retrieve it from search, but when I click on the app, it doesn't open the usual tabs I have opened, but instead tries to load an empty page with a message underneath that says that I should connect to a network. Reinstalling Firefox fixes the issue for me, but it's a temporary fix. Is there any way I could make this permanent? I should reinstate that this is a company laptop, obviously I am authorised to use it for personal use, but it might be something to do with that.

bold text

I spend more time LEARNING how to do this or that with my computer. Thousands of hours wasted over the years. I guess some kids think this is fun. Not me. I downloaded "SingleFile" hoping it would be easy to use, but it's not. I used to use things like UnMHT but that' gone. Todays problem is that I don't have a printer hooked up to my computer. I bought a car part online and wanted to print the oversized receipt. I downsized the page and took a screenshot of the receipt. Took the screen shot and put it on a stick. Next I turned on my wife's computer which has a good printer connected to it. I transferred the file to her computer, but the printout was very shabby looking. How can I get around the problems of saving pages and / or printing them ? Switch to a different browser ? You must know my email by now. Please send me an answer. Ray P.S. Should I be using Thunderbird or something ? Really confused. Another problem is that people don't know how to explain things. It's like they're using a different language with words missing. OMG :-(
