I discovered by coincidence that the add-ons are disabled if you choose never to save history in the Tools / Options menu. That cannot be the intention! Is this a bug?

Previously, Firefox had the option of clearing history on exit while the add-ons were still working, which I think is a much better option! (Or is this option still available? I can not find him.)

Unless the installer allows a custom location to be chosen, I will no longer be able to use it.

Description of the problem is as follows: 1) I start a presentation on Google Meet 2) I choose to present one of my open windows (*not* entire screen) 3) window is being presented, just fine, 4) If I *minimize* the window being presented, the tab crashes. 5) the problem does not occur if I present the entire screen, rather it has to do with the window being presented becoming minimized.

Win10/drivers/Firefox all up to date - problem persists even in Firefox's Safe Mode.

This problem also exists when Firefox is restarted in safe mode.

Works fine when using other browsers such as Chrome or Edge!

Please look into this!

This dirty trick required to move a single bookmark folder from one Firefox profile to another stopped working for me for some reason. I tried different firefox versions, including the one from portableapps.com, I tried starting the second instance with -no-remote switch. Nothing worked. When I tried drag&drop between the instances there was the blue feedback dash indicating the place where the folder was going to be dropped in the target Library window. But nothing happened. I tried holding Ctrl as well, also using Ctrl+C - Ctrl+V key combinations.

Is this a known issue? Has a recent version of Firefox removed this ability?

Web pages are loading painfully slowly, 11-34 seconds, some never load before timing out. Other browser (Edge) is loading pages quickly. Internet connection reasonably fast (35.7 Mbps). I tried the following:

  - Safe Mode, no change.
  - Refreshed Firefox, no change.
  - Disabled Antivirus and Firewall, no change.
  - Disabled Network Proxy, no change.
  - Content Process Limit set at 8.
  - Firefox is using 550 MB of memory (out of 10.2 GB)

There are instances when Firefox does load pages quickly, but they are increasingly infrequent and not predictable.

I hate that I have to ask this.... I have been trying to import my username/passwords from Chrome to Firefox for weeks. I'm using the Firefox built in Import tool. It just simply doesn't work. A couple of weeks ago it did actually import 1 site/username/password. Then today I was able to get 1 more. Both of these were sites that I used Chrome to sign into recently, like it cached them or something and thus were able to be imported into Firefox. But all the others that are saved in Chrome will not come over. I just don't get it. There is really nothing to it, so I know I'm doing it right. Options>>Privacy & Security>>Saved Logins>>Import>>>Select Chrome as browser to import from>>(Deselect cookies, browsing history, bookmarks) Saved Passwords selected>>Next>>Finished. Nothing.

Maybe I should uninstall Firefox and reinstall it and see I can do it from a fresh install. I don't know. Very frustrating.

Version 66.0.3 64 bit.

Thanks

Currently using FF 63.0.1, but I'd hoped that upgrade would resolve the ongoing problem.

Extensions work normally after reboot, but within a day, are again missing. Eg. scroll up/down initially available, but then symbols disappear from page. Others in toolbar look fine, but do not activate when I attempt to use them. When I restart FF, it's back to functioning, but only for a short time. frustrated.

when I click on the frontpage, nothing happens now since the update. Also the arrow is gone to read the next page and it is impossible to consult the older newspapers (archive) - see examples.

By using Google Chrome everything is fine, no problems at all, I can read my newspaper as usual.

So the cause of this bug is Firefox!!!
