Hello,

I have tried adding several different extensions to firefox and they do not seem to work. So, I am beginning to think that this is a problem with firefox rather than with the companies that create the extensions.

Liner extension: I added the extension to firefox and have set up an account. But each time I try to use it to highlight text in a webpage, it asks me to sign up in order to use the extension. If I press OK, it will then lead me to the sign up page, I enter my account detail to log in. It logs in successfully. But then when I go back to use the extension, it continues to ask me to sign up. If I press OK again, it again guides me to the sign up page, except that the page immediately refreshes to my account's page since it remembers I already have signed in! But the extension still doesn't work!

Similar situations with grammarly and google translate.

FF quantum version 60.0b8 (64-bit) loads well the web page of www.Dictionary.com.

In the page you have two options definition or synonims. By default the entry is for definition and there is no problem to change from one option to the other.

The problem is that when you enter the desired word there is no echo into the screen, and you see the cursor move to the next position, but the input field remains empty. However, if you hit the enter key, the page search the right word you enter and displays the proper definition or synonym.

This behavior, as far as I know, only happens in the web page of Dictionary.com.

Do you know whether some body else has this problem?

Appreciate your suggestions

Memory usage goes up to 90% from 42% when opening Mozilla and stays there (sometimes drops to 87% - I have 4 Gb memory) - only two tabs are active. When looking in Task manager it shows there are 7 active sessions. Hard drive usage goes to 100% for several minutes before going down. I always use Firfox but it becoming very resource hungry and frustrating me when it causes my system to stop. Please assist

The tab bar only appears when the "Customize" screen is open, and only on that screen per se (never on any other page). So it is impossible to know how many tabs, or which ones, are open at one time except by actually scrolling through them with the Ctrl-Tab shortcut.

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).

i have latest version of firefox, Trusteer Rapport is also a bank security Add on. The anti virus in use is Bitdefender, with wallet disabled, and the operating system is windows 10. within last 7 days I am unable to log in to online banking with Firefox. I keep getting a notice advising that the connection has dropped out on, whne i try to sign in . This appears to be a firefox browser related problem. firefox is my default setting.I have updated browser and cleared the cache and history, the connection failure remains. Previously these systems have worked well together, so this is a recent occurrence. Any ideas ?

Hey guys, everytime I open a new firefox browser, it'll ask if I want to change it to my default browser and bring up the default programs window for my windows 10. However, every time I try to change the default browser from Microsoft Edge to Firefox, the window will pause for a bit, then just close. This never really bothered me too much, but now I'm trying to download something from Microsoft's website, and this problem is becoming the reason why I can't download it. Why is the window just pausing for a second then closing? It's like it doesn't know how to respond to my choosing firefox and just crashes.

PS. If it helps, it seems that if I try to change it to ANY other browser but Microsoft Edge, it closes the window.

Im trying to access paypal, and i keep getting that stupid Insecure Connection error message, and it wont allow me to add an exception to it. Im sorry but im so over this happening all the time, this browser is becoming a giant piece of shit and waste of my time to even use anymore. How can i turn these stupid error messages off completely? Why is there no setting to easily do this? Who thought adding this stupid feature was a good idea?
