How do I refresh favicons (of my bookmarks) with FF 49?

All of my bookmarks have the "gray globe" placeholder icon. This icon gets updated to the site's real favicon when I select it.

I have 100's of bookmarks, so how do I update them all automatically? I'm not about to go through all of these links... The Add-Ons available in the past (Reloader, etc.) no longer work with FF 49. Why is this broken? Even the developer of Reloader says he can't support FF 49.

I'm playing in a online browser-based flash game called RiotZone. I'm currently on Firefox v.49.0.1, because no other versions display an animated notification in the Tab wherever the fight ends or starts (see the screenshot attached).

Dear Mozilla devs, please give me a hint, what could possibly be that only 49.0.1 supports these notifications.

If there is programing language explanation, don't hesitate to write it down. I would gladly forward your answer to the game dev as support ticket (in case it's their fault).

I need to mention, these animated notifications are perfectly displaying on Edge, IE 11, even on old Chrome version.

Thanks in advance.

When I quit Firefox, the process stays running forever; I have to open the task manager and kill it. (I wait until CPU usage is down to 0 so I know it's actually done, so it doesn't think it crashed.) Running Windows 10. I think this started more or less when the Anniversary Update landed.

To prevent wasted time from either party, here are some things I already tried:

  • disabled all extensions one by one
  • fresh profile
  • fresh install of Developer Edition
  • wiped all traces of Firefox from my system, and still got this on a fresh install → 32 and 64 bit, latest release, oldest release I was able to download, Developer Edition
  • switched antivirus
  • turned antivirus off entirely
  • Windows' own safe mode

how to stop firefox from immediately playing the sound from a web site when it opens and continuing to play audio from other web sites

The other day I watched a couple of videos online about making carrot cake. Since then, whenever I open the browser, the audio from a web site playing carrot cake recipe directions comes on - audio only, no video. When that recipe audio finishes, the sound from a different web site's carrot cake recipe comes on. When that finishes, a new carrot cake recipe audio from yet another web site comes on. And so it goes. It seems to be on a continuous path of playing carrot cake recipe audio tracks. Do I have to uninstall firefox to make this stop? What data will I lose if I do that? Is there another way to make this stop?

I don't want the browser to autoplay any videos! It bogs down everything because web site managers are too stupid not to limit the amount of video ads they put on one page. If you have several tabs open the browser hangs terribly! I don't want any videos to play automatically and I went into about:config and set the preference to not autoplay videos and yet it still does?? How can I stop this behavior?


And as another pet peeve of mine: why can't firefox switch to some other video player besides adobe since adobe changes daily and constantly has vunerabilities and then you have to reinstall the damn thing every other day or your shockwave stuff doesn't play?? Please do something to stop that behavior as well!

I have a bookmarks folder with many links and many folders and subfolders to organize them (15+years worth). I am very good about deleting any unwanted bookmarks and I also even change the titles to make them more concise. But despite my efforts at organization, firefox freezes and stalls every time I try to make even the slightest change to one of these bookmarks (ie change the title or location of the bookmark using bookmarks manager) and then I have to wait 10 - 15 seconds for firefox to make the change and unfreeze itself so I can move on. As a result it is becoming intolerable to even use anymore. I imported the same exact bookmarks into chrome and it doesn't have any of these delays. I do not sign into chrome whereas my firefox has my account linked to several other devices. Is that why my firefox bookmarks are so slow to update (because it takes so long to send the updated info to the central server that then has the info ready for next login from that or another device)? If so then am I going to have to just stop using my firefox sync acct and to go back to a cloudless bookmarks folder with no ability to sync between my laptop, desktop &tablet just to avoid waiting 10-15 between adding or making any change to bookmarks before continuing to work? Would having the sync only apply to two devices make it sync faster than if I have 3 or 4 devices with my sync acct linked? Eliminating bookmarks is not an acceptable solution...like I said I am already good about renaming and organizing them (or at least when that function used to work in a timely manner). Thank you for your help!
