I've read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox

It tells me how to disable new notification requests, however when I go to website, the icon still appears. The icon still wiggles. I want to remove this ENTIRELY. Under no circumstances do I ever want to know anything about any website with notifications. It should be 100% removed because it is trash feature from trash companies.

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

Here is a Jsfiddle URL URL which points to Twitter Tweet Button JS / HTML code which I am attempting to embed into a website.


When I load the above in Google Chrome 84 the Tweet Button appears and I can share out the URL of the web page in which the Tweet button is embedded, with no unexpected results.

When I try to do the same with Mozilla Firefox 79.0, in Private Mode, and disabling uBlock extension, the Tweet button does NOT appear, only the "Tweet" text. When I click on the Tweet text, I can not share out the URL as expected.

I am wondering what specifically in Mozilla Firefox could be introducing the problem.

I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

For the last couple of months, I have been unable to scroll down on THE GUARDIAN website. I have contacted them and tried a number of the things they suggested to no avail. It was suggested the browser may be the problem. I do not have this problem with any other website. Use Windows 10

I use a number of options/tools/add-ons from Mozilla/Firefox (79.0): Ghostery, AdBlockPlus, PrivacyBadger, NoScript, Forget, and FlashBlocker.

Any idea on how to solve this problem would be very greatly appreciated. Anybody else have this or similar problem?

Thanks.

I was playing a browser based game and it popped up with the error saying:

an error occured running the unity content on this page. See your Javascript console for more info. The error was: InvalidStateError. A mutation operation was attempted on a database that did not allow mutations.

uh... what? I have no idea what Unity is or does. I have no idea (even looking here), how to open Javascript console, and I simply loaded the page. How did a mutation operation, whatever that is, occur?

Anyone have any idea what that means or how to fix it? If so, I'd appreciate any help.

Hello. I ve got a big problem on my Firefox browser. When im using other browsers i dont have this problem, it s only on Firefox, but i love using Firefox and i want to fix it.

Problem which i have shows up on youtube and sometimes on twitch. When im watching youtube video in vp09 format there are absolutely no problems with frames but when a video is in avc1 format - boom i cant watch it because of super frame drops - like a 90% of total frames are dropeed.

Example video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr-zCc9VUto

My pc is not the best but not the worst, i dont think its hardware problem because as i said, on other browser i dont have this problem watching the same video it isnt dropping frames. CPU: Xeon X5450 GPU: GTX 660Ti RAM: 8GB

This problem is with me since about a year, i dont know when it happened. Please help me, how to fix it?
