I can't press enter when adding a domain name (.com, .org, etc.) to the search bar. I can either not include the domain, being redirected to google, or I can press on the arrow near the refresh button. Not a huge issue but it's only been this way since I updated to the most recent version of firefox. Is this a problem on my end, or a bug in the new version?

so, i'm working on a completely local project. specifically, i'm working on an interactive bandcamp liner note download, and the actual target is mostly flac (although it should work for mp3, too). for this reason, i can't be downloading software, and i'm not interested in running scripts. the user needs to be able to launch a notes.html file locally and be able to run a local playlist of the local files s/he just bought in the document.

i understand that it's as easy as directing to the proper m3u file via the html5 tag, iff you're using safari. but, i'm not using safari, and i'd guess most of my audience isn't, either.

what happens in both firefox 54 (windows 7) and a 60x v of chrome on a chromebook is that the controls load, but i can't press play.

this is an old laptop, and i can't run nightly builds on it. but, is there a specific version of firefox where this flips over and starts working?

basically, what i want is for this to work or for some very close analog of it to work:

<audio controls>

  <source src="../playlist.m3u" type='audio/x-mpegURL'>

</audio>

again: i know how to do this using javascript, but i'm assuming the end user is running the file locally. so, there's no server involved.

I use Firefox because I love the tools that add-ons provide. I don't want to install quantum only to discover that it doesn't serve my purposes. I've fine-tuned this browser to do a lot and I don't want to start over. I've seen suggestions for using Firefox portable on a USB, but as far as I can see, there is no portable for a Mac. I'd like to keep both for a while, then make up mind. I'm hoping there's a simple solution for this. I know I'm not the only one who doesn't want to give up their add-ons.

... to see WHICH pages are using the cpu? I want something analogous to ps.

When my fan turns on I want to see what the reason is. Normally I use ps (or top) for this, but when I have a dozen tabs open in firefox and I see that "Web Content" is using 100% of cpu this doesn't help me find out which tab is the culprit. I'd like something like ps or top for that Web Content process so I can kill that tab or disable some of its scripts. In fact it would be even better if the Web Content ps utility could tell me which scripts are using how much cpu.

After I have downloaded and reinstalled FF on Win 7 x64 Ultimate, the add-ons, along with changes I made to the config file remained and were included in my supposed "clean install" of FF. How do I ensure that everything, including the prior settings and add-ons are really uninstalled prior to reinstalling FF?

Thanks in advance,

Version 54.0.1 Firefox stops responding multiple times in a day. I have to kill the process using task manager. When I restart, I get the Well, this is embarrassing page". For example, I opened up Firefox to pay my Comcast bill and within a few clicks, Firefox stopped responding. Firefox constantly freezes and stops responding on Twitter. This has gotten much worse with the last two updates to Firefox. I really don't want to use Chrome (because of the tracking) but if this keeps up with Firefox, I'm just going to have to uninstall it.

I have a fully patched Windows 10 Pro computer. I have also tried uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it, but this doesn't solve this issue.

On this page there is a link to "Automatically add " information to this ticket, but when I click it it takes me to a web page that says "We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for."
