With Firefox 89.0 (Win 10) suddenly only 50 downloads are possible at the same time. All other activities in other tabs / windows are frozen. With the previous version, more than 300 downloads were possible without any problems and the browser has not slowed down. I want to go back to my old version, especially since the design is more appealing.

Mit Firefox 89.0 (Win 10) sind schlagartig nur noch 50 Downloads gleichzeitig möglich. Alle weiteren Aktivitäten in weiteren Tabs / Fenstern sind eingefroren. Mit der Vorgängerversion waren ohne Probleme mehr als 300 Downloads möglich und der Browser ist nicht langsamer geworden. Ich möchte meine alte Version zurück zumal das Design ansprechender ist.

OS: Windows 7 Firefox Version: Current, no extensions or add-ons active

This problem started out of the blue a month or two ago. When I type in the search box or any input field on a web page, more often than not, the browser will go into "Not Responding" mode and I have to exit and restart. At the same time this started, the same problem also started happening when a pop-up window would appear (perhaps only those with input fields?). The problem with input fields seems to happen most often when they are trying to auto-complete what I am typing, but turning this off in the search box did not end the problem there, just made it happen a little less often.

I tried doing a 'refresh' on Firefox, that had no effect.

If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, the problem does not occur.

I do not think this is a virus problem; I have Kaspersky running, and I haven't seen any other telltale signs.

This is not the worst issue in the world, but I can't work it out.

I use Multi-Account Containers and have the facebook Container and Google Container extensions.

In Settings >> General >> Container Tabs...Settings, I can choose the colour and the icon that represents each container.

That works fine within a session, but when I restart, the Facebook container has always reverted back to the fence icon, in black. If I change the icon to something else, and/or change it to a different colour, it's ignored when I close and restart.

None of the other containers (Personal, Shopping, Banking, Work, Google) have this problem - I can set whatever icon and colour for them I like, and it's retained when I restart Firefox.

Any ideas?

Is there a way to save a FF URL as a file in linux, from within FF?

I would like to save URLs to the file system as actionable files. Expecting to launch the default browser by double-clicking that file or opening a new tab if running, although I can see where that might get weird and launch only the file's source browser and not the default browser; not a problem as yet.

Note that I know this is not <Save Page As…/Web Page, complete> that saves the entire page content in a relative directory, or <Save Page As…/Web Page, HTML only> that saves page code to a file system link but without content. Also, not interested in FF internal solutions related to bookmarks, pocket, or favorites. FF is busy enough and my goal is to save links with my file system organization instead of duplicating that inside an application.

This is something I once did routinely with Safari on Mac OS, but eOS doesn't map without a default desktop. I expected FF to have a menu selection, contextual or not, or key combo common to all platforms, but I found nothing and very little online comment about this.

As a workaround, I can accomplish this is by dragging a highlighted URL from the FF address field to an open file manager directory window. The test file was under a reasonable 200 bytes and launched FF when double-clicked. However, this is cumbersome if the environment isn't ready and waiting, requiring opening a file manager without a desktop, navigating the file system, reducing maximized windows, and stacking windows within reach. Also, copying URL text can't be pasted into the file manager to create a new file; just thought I'd try it.

Short of installing a third party desktop, am I missing a simple way to do this with FF?

Bonus Question: what does the attached icon mean to you? I thought the little arrow on the known "code" document icon was mimicking Windows' shortcut style, but it's not an alias and I honestly don't know what the arrow means. If you action the file of this icon it opens a FF tab as I wrote above, but won't launch "code" even if asked, only readable from within code.

These warning symbols have disappeared since the last update and all I see now is a running processing symbol. Is there a setting I need to adjust to get this to work once again?

I have a Google Fiber connection (up to 500 Mbps). When I use the Firefox 89.0 browser (my favorite), at best I get about one fifth of the speed that I get when using the Safari browser (e.g., 70 vs. 340 Mbps). I guess I could just use Safari but apart from the ease of use thanks to uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger add-ons in Firefox, Netflix doesn't want to stream in Safari. So I am screwed either way. The Google Fiber help line doesn't know what to do, their tech who came to my home said that he sees this a lot with Firefox, no solution. And yes, I have 150 GB of empty space on my hard drive so that's not an issue. Also, MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6, 16 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7, Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB. Any ideas what causes this and/or how this can be fixed or improved?
