Current problem is the following:

Whenever i press the "w" key a search bar opens in the bottom of my browser. This is the search also accessed by ctrl + f. I need this gone since it bothers my ability to use the browser. I cant find it being a keybind from firefox or duckduckgo so i really wonder what caused this.

I have a recurring problem with Firefox warning me that a perfectly safe https site is http and temporarily barring access until I confirm that I want to risk proceeding to it. The latest site to get this treatment is https://bloctel.gouv.fr/, which is a French government website. This is extremely annoying. How can I fix it?

Firefox 93.0 64bit Linux Mint 1.0

When I close (X) the window, my session is not restored. I have checked all the settings and verified that they are set correctly. Then, I found that when I tried to quit the program via File menu, it says that I have two windows and three tabs open, yet I only have on window/one tab open. I can not find this other window... What does this mean? Have tried refreshing the app, safe mode, and disabling the extensions that I use.

Thanks!

When I go to Truist.com, my recently merged bank, it remembers my userid OK, but fills in the password field with about 200 random ASCII characters. I tried to delete and re-establish the saved password, but Firefox either gets messes it up or more likely the web site messes it up. The result is that the true saved password in lost and the ASCII rubbish re-appears.

Work-around is to not let Firefox save the password for this site. It works A-OK with the other 150 or so passwords. Check out the screen shot attached.

Luv Firefox, even donate once in a while.

Thank you,

I looked at various tips on how to solve a RAM problem. But I don't understand why my firefox takes about 800MB of RAM after startup, but sometimes after the time of use it suddenly takes 16GB of RAM. Does Mozilla not have a tool to track which part of Firefox uses so much RAM?

Figured out the basic issue (from Solutions here) why old Firefox not working on old XP-SP3. Found 52.9.0esr download - but when I run the file, it keeps telling me to "Close Firefox". Used Task Manager - nothing - not Firefox or anything else - is shown to be running. Any ideas? Might not be a Firefox issue, but would appreciate any insights. TIA - Jean

Hey!

As the subject implies, my Firefox Application and associated applications on Windows 10 don't open at all. When I click on the shortcut, or open it directly through file explorer as administrator, for a single moment it shows a blank window with a blank application on the taskbar open and immediately closes it. It does not bring up a crash report following this. I have tried everything from restarting my PC, to removing every Firefox file on my PC and reinstalling Firefox, to trying Safe Mode, updating Windows 10 and drivers, and virus scans. Nothing has worked.

Is there any form of fix for this? It would be well appreciated!

I started using the Firefox Relay extension and shortly after, I could no longer login to my Weebly website. So I deactivated the Relay extension and I still could not login. I then tried logging in with Safari and there was no problem. I suspect it has something to do with the relay extension, but I have no idea if this is the problem or if it is something else. However, when the extension is activated, the login name disappears off to the left of the "box" where you put the login name in. The message I get is "wrong login name". When I deactivate the extension, the login name no longer moves off to the left in the box, but I still get the error message. Regardless, now I cannot login to Weebly with Firefox!

Maybe sometime in the past week or so, I began noticing an issue on the New York Times website. I am able to load most articles there normally, but some, marked with a 'live' button for certain types of rapidly updated topics (e.g. election day vote updates or the like) won't load. https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/11/02/us/election-news?action=click&pgtype=Article&state=default&module=styln-elections-2020®ion=TOP_BANNER&context=election_recirc This is an example of such a page. I click them and just get white space. I normally use a private browser tab for all webpages but it still doesn't load if I use the normal page rather than an in-private window. I would appreciate any help. Let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help people help me. I may need to be walked through some suggestions. I am using version 94 on Linux Mint as of today, and up until today was using whatever the immediately previous version available for Mint was. The described behavior happened on both versions, if that is relevant.
