Hi so I noticed recently that Firefox would cause my PC to momentarily freeze when it's loading videos, usually ads on YouTube, but I saw this happening on Twitch and sometimes Twitter as well. This has never been a problem and just started at most just a month ago

I searched around and saw that those who had kind of a similar problem were able to solve it by setting media.av1.enabled to false, or by clearing their cache. I did both and the problem persists. I also tried disabling my anti-virus' active protection settings to no avail. Another solution I found was to create a fresh profile but I'd like to see if there's anything else I can try before doing that. Perhaps a reinstall?

The only Add-on I have left is BetterTTV, no ad blockers of any sort. tia

Bear with me there's a bit of a story.

One of the apps I most use is MightyText. It allows me to send texts from my desktop computer's web browser. When FireFox automatically updated to the newest version, something didn't work right and MightyText stopped being able to connect.

My workaround was to use System Restore to go back in time so to speak. But FireFox is pretty aggressive with their updates, and eventually that stopped being a work around.

I tried to install an older version of FireFox manually but I couldn't ever get my profile to work right.

So, I've landed somewhere where FireFox has updated to the latest version, AND MightyText works just fine.

But now the problem is I cannot use any of my add-ons. Actually, I can re-fresh FireFox, and start it without any add ons. I can add all my add ons and everything works great, but if I restart my computer, FireFox will not connect to the internet (the wheel just spins) until I refresh again and wipe out all the add-ons. After doing so, all my tabs are restored, all my saved passwords, etc--and I can add back the add-ons and they will work until FireFox Crashes or I restart the computer, but then FF won't connect to the internet and around and around we go.

What's up?

Someone already reported it there: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/mc8vyx/pocket_disappeared_from_the_library_dropdown/

There is currently no way to view websites saved to pocket. Only integration is that one button visible on address bar and I have no idea how to restore it after you remove it. I hate their clumsiness. This is second time they remove one thing and forget to add replacement/config in time. Previous case was something with bookmarks menu if I remember correctly, and they still did not add any option to right-click-menu.

I made a backup of my current bookmarks as a .json file and then restored an earlier bookmark backup. When I did, all of the bookmarks ended up in the root and all of the folders I made to organize my bookmarks were empty. I didn't really care because I found the bookmark that I was looking for and then restored the new backup that I had made prior to restoring the older one.

Same thing happened, all of my bookmarks ended up in the root and all of my folders were empty again. That's way too much work to have to put them all back in the folders manually and surely it's not designed to work that way.

I did a system restore from several days earlier and that didn't fix it either. I also tried restoring an automatic bookmark, several of them, that didn't work either.

I have the latest version of Firefox installed and it was before I started any of this. I can't find the version number because "About Firefox" only says "Firefox is up to date" under Firefox Browser. Your software below has identified it as version 87.0. Running Windows 8.1.

This is really aggravating, I haven't got time for this crap.

I have recently updated my browser to version 87...unfortunately I had to revert to version 85.0.2 because the browser pegs CPU every time there is an advert on Youtube. Doesn't matter whether I let it play in its entirety or skip it after the mandatory 5-second mark. I have tried running FF without addons, did not make a change. I tried opening a single window with a single tab...no result. Can you fix it in some kind of micro patch? I'm running W8.1 on i5 6600K clocked at 4 GHz with 8 Gb RAM in a dual channel.

I don't see another place to post this. If someone provides a link to a tracker I'll be happy to repost. I should also probably open these items in different posts. I will do so if required.

I see a few places where Multi-Account Containers can be improved:

1) More icons - ability to use all Google Material Icons, even if the ID is manually entered 2) More colors - with color wheel or entry of #RGB 3) From the Multi-Account Containers Support page, "The sync feature will align Multi-Account Containers on different computers" - This does not appear to be working with v87 on two systems. 4) Also from that page, "Assign a website to a container" does not appear to be documented: Three dot Page Actions in address bar > Alway open this in a container.

Am I missing existing functionality or documentation?

Thanks!

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

May I suggest that Firefox should delay syncing the Master Password until the first time that it is actually required, even if syncing is turned on?

If you use Data Syncing then this is attempted every time you start Firefox. If you also use a Master Password then it tries to sync your passwords every time you start Firefox too. This means that every time you start Firefox it asks you for the Master Password. This is incredibly irritating.

I realize that you need to sync at the beginning of a new session but would it be possible to delay the syncing of passwords until the user actually needs to use a password (i.e. the default behavior for using a Master Password without syncing). After all, it doesn't matter if the passwords are not synchronized if they are not being used. When a password is actually required then Master Password could be requested and the stored passwords could be synchronized if the correct Master Password is supplied.

I recently downloaded FF 25.0 on a new computer (Samsung Series 9) and web pages don't render correctly though I used default settings and have same extensions (all in one sidebar and list it). I asked our tech person and he said "Your CSS isn't loading. Try clearing your cache and restarting your browser". This worked but now I find I have to repeatedly do it as many as a few times a day, with varied websites, and once it happens, all websites won't render correctly. I don't want to have to switch to chrome, please help! Here is a screenshot.

was downloading add ons after install. KeePass would not cancel out from long form fill. I restarted the browser. Ghostry web page and disconnect appeared. Went to search for blog, about 10 min had passed, I noticed my bookmark bar was empty.

Returned to the add on menu. Only six add ons were functioning. Add to this lost it's restart icon. Everthing behind that had to be re-opened. Did that. Restarted the browser. Same dead bunched behind

Add to this. I am setting up my wife's pc. Brand new. It is a LenovoThinkCenter 92z, Windows 8 os.

Not much else. I am loving the 64 bit it runs fine on my Sony w/ Windows 7. ANd that is the way it will stay til end of life.
