Ok, as it says above, Firefox is randomly shutting itself off, as if you were 'Exit'-ing. I have followed all the aspects of the troubleshooting webpage - so far, when in Troubleshooting Mode, it stays up. I have turned all add-ons, extensions, hardware acceleration...before I went to Troubleshooting Mode...to try and isolate what might be causing it - no luck. I can have as few as 4 tabs open or as much as 10-it still turns off. Now, this does not happen each and every day, but it's close. The last crash report sent in was dated November 11, 4 in total. I have the crash report ID numbers if needed. I can't create the scenario; it's acting as if I am closing the browser, which I am not. This has me lost and frustrated.

Whenever I click the PiP floating icon on video-hosting sites such as YouTube, the PiP window pops up but does not stay on top. It is immediately hidden by other windows. I always need to open the window menu and enable "Always on Top". Shouldn't this be enabled by default? Is there anything I can do to make it enable by default?

For reference, I'm using GNOME 41.1 on Manjaro Linux.

After a crash and reboot where I lost my bookmarks, I discovered a "file" of them in a folder I had created for another purpose on my desktop. I don't know how they got there! file:///C:/Users/Alan/OneDrive/Desktop/MECHANICS/bookmarks.html Perhaps saved in OneDrive and migrated somehow during reboot? Anyway, is there a way to transfer these into my newly downloaded Firefox browser? Thanks!

How do I remove Colorways completely? I don't use it and it's a waste of space. I used to have more control of features in Firefox. Now you're putting themes I can't delete? Firefox is really starting to suck! No wonder everyone is leaving for Chrome. I'm about to be one of those leaving Firefox.

Which looks like Mozilla, which in a way is even worse. And this is not my home page it's supposed to open with, I assure you. Seems to be plugging VPN for the holidays. Yeah, right.

 (Bad enough Thunderbird is a crap-fest as when lost you can not get it back and 'no one' really seems to have a clue. Just phony (in house) remedies that never work- probably why Mozilla is history!)

Recently i noticed that URLs flash in the lower left corner of my screen, when mouse hovers over certain things on a web site. Why did it start doing this, and how can i get it to stop? very annoying. Also, when i stream a movie, for example on MUBI, the URL sometimes appears in low left screen and remains, which is distracting. Again, this is something new. Help appreciated! Thanks!

This might be a problem with Yahoo, but I am able to login on other browsers.

Any ideas?

Today I found out that Many apps on my system work in the background and slowing down my machine. I enlisted the consulting assistants of an expert and was told that the biggest are Adobe and Microsoft. I had a cleaning done to my system and the results were amazing. I disable Apps I didn't need, uninstall App I did not use in a long time and disable services that did not provided me with any substantive experience or improvement in productivity. The results were amazing. My system was running faster than I have ever seen it run, including the first year after I purchase it. Well, about 2 hours later, I got this notification from Microsoft saying that I have to enable these optional services because Edge would make it better for me to serve the web and have a custom experience and get tailored adds based on my activity. If I had a choice I would pick No Adds. After I read their notification that I had difficulty reading and understanding little of it, I felt pressure to signed up with Edge as my browser. These services were eating my resources like there was no tomorrow and were effecting my productivity level. Microsoft's notification included a screen shot of the changes I did today in my settings with the disable buttons in Privacy and Personalization areas. I have all the required setting about diagnostics, etc. enabled, is there anything I can do to prevent them from using me like a cheap prostitute? Can they shot my account down for that? Is there any other OS providers I could get?

So I don't know what it is but FF hangs on startup. I mean the window loads but if I type something it isn't reflected. I also checked the task manager and clearly FF was hogging lot of RAM on startup (nearly 2 GB) and the fan speed was also increased drastically. I waited for some time so that what I typed was reflected on FF, clearly the RAM usage went down after 2-3 mins and the fan speed also decreased.

Another thing I noticed is that when the FF is the current window, Alt+tab doesn't work on Windows OS (the windows don't switch). I tried with another applications as the current window and Alt+Tab was working. I don't know why.

I saw this changes after upgrading FF to the latest version (88.0.1 (64-bit)). I think these are the bugs in the latest version.

Someone please rectify and patch the bugs. Thank you.
