Sometimes it's the website I'm connecting to directly, and sometimes it's embedded images hosted on another site that won't load. As I write this, I am unable to access YouTube. (Update, 2 minutes later - now I can.)

Ctrl + F5 doesn't work. Nor does clearing my cookies, cache, site preferences and logins. I tried disabling all my addons - that didn't work either.

This is a local problem, I think. The speed of the failed load is instantaneous to half a second in duration, judging by the refresh button spinning.

However, there is one solution: loading the page in a private window will actually fix the problem in my main window. Obviously, this is not a convenient solution, and I'd like to know what causes this.

Hello, I installed an add-on called "Restore Old Fast Theme of YouTube" from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restore-fast-theme-of-youtube/

But after realizing it wasn't the right thing for me I tried to remove it but it seems to have permanently altered my YouTube. I tried restarting the browser but it is stuck on.

How is it able to do this? I have removed it so it should be back to normal but it is not.

Thank you for any help

When I visit the page https://www.costco.ca/vtech-5-in.-video-baby-monitor-with-2-cameras%2c-wide-angle-lens-and-standard-lens.product.100515489.html# the product viewer should have a few thumbnails and allow zooming the currently selected image. This is not the case for me. If I restart in safe mode it does work though.

I followed this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#firefox:win10:fx70 with no success.

Disabling all extensions and hardware acceleration, ensuring I'm using the default theme... the problem still persists in "regular" mode but isn't present in safe mode.

What else is safe mode doing?

HI I am using firefox 70.0.1, build 20191108022956 on Windows 7 (yuck) on an intranet without external net access nor the ability to install any addins.

How can I change the colour of the Menu bar , or better, change the colours used by the out of the box themes ?

(I used to configure lightweightThemes.recommendedThemes and lightweightThemes.usedThemes but that no longer seems to work)

Thanks in advance

The main reason I wrote this post is to ask the question that comes at the end of this note. If you scroll to the end, you can see it marked as MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO ASK THE QUESTION BELOW.

As I was posting the question, I took advantage of the moment to reflect on the fact that FireFox's perseverance over its long history of ups and downs today has made FireFox one of the real hopes for humanity. Long Live FireFox!

Back in the dark ages, before the ascendance of Google's Chrome browser, I learned to recover FireFox's guts, to cope with its gastric spasms of projectile digital vomiting, which seemed to occur every few weeks. Most software in those days contributed full shares to the unusable stew, made the accumulation of digital barf that needed cleanup as often as I needed to clean up after hangovers from over drinking when I was a stupid youth. Those were the days when running a computer all day without being forced to restart taught me to weild Windows Task Manager as weapon, which usually provided a side step around enough of the binary vomit top cut restarts from 4 a day to only one or two.

Years later, while Microsoft was recovering from the largest, most expensive public mistake in software history (Windows 8), Google got a handle on Chrome. After that, around 2014, Google either found Popeye's spinach factory, or aliens joined them in their Mountain View offices, because no human force can account for the rate and quality of significant upgrades to all their systems since then, for Chrome browser, underlying Chromium technology now used by everyone, not just for browsers, but all manor of application software to run on all kinds of platforms, Android for phones and apps, YouTube video processing that spots copyrighted sound and images in every video that has it, the world-leading advertising systems and dashboards, and their search engine so much better than anyone else's our choice is to use Google Search or be stupid and slow, or use Google Maps or be lost. Google pumps out new and better software features one hundred times faster than any other organization. If you missed the media reports explaining this, that is because Google's super productivity has not been celebrated in anything like the degree warranted.

Unfortunately, Google also has become so evil it probably cannot be prevented from destroying the system of human checks and balances invented in the United States 240 years ago. As simple and feeble as those checks and balances are, without them it is hard to see how any substantial part of the human population ever could have experienced and lived with Liberty and the productivity it makes possible. For example, without the Liberty growing throughout the world after taking its initial root in the United States and our written Constitution, one of the most ingenious and consequential documents ever written, the normal result of military conflict would have been one murderous, tyrannical, wholly self-serving dictatorship or another forcing 99% of the human population to live as serfs or slaves in the involuntary service of people like you know who. Google and the rest of the power players in commercial media are destroying that, through political bias they lie about. The problem with their lies is they have the power of their media platform to perpetrate them. Google is evil and needs to be neutralized. The main thing I can do about this is to stop using their products. The other thing I can do is tell people about what is happening. I was raised to see things this way, but for until recently, I did not see this is the way we have to look at things because this is the way that works. Until recently, I did not know society cannot stop functioning, but now I know that the functioning we all take for granted, including the people fighting against it, is rare as diamonds when viewed in the context of human history, Some of the people attacking our country want to break it down, because they want the United States to become like the places people now leave in order to come here. The sickness is the same that has affected all gluttons for power. They have learned that force of military arms tends to galvanize people like you and me. Instead, they lie to us. pretending to harbor the same loves for life you and I have, when in truth they see us is idiot patsies, making us deserve their the damages wrought by their treachery.

Therefore, I stopped using Chrome, returning to the FireFox way of browsing. I was with Chrome so long, I forgot all about recovering browser profiles. FireFox is a lot more reliable today than it was before Chome blew everybody out of the water, but its profile system still ha regular bouts with projectile digital vomiting.

Today, my FireFox is not blasting bile all over the house, but is being rather brave holding the contagion within itself. I noticed passwords not filling into web forms that used to be there. I am not sure of the timing. I probably was a long time ago, but I kept getting messages from FireFox babbling about their new security system.

Today, I needed to identify active profile (i.e., the one I use) from the half dozen profiles piled into my FireFox installation. I don't know why there is more than one. Unfortunately, I just could not glean the one I need to look at from their names:

b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ n34593ht.default-release/ n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ q412vz1p.default/ uiaqaxwu.default/

The online guide provided the usual waste of time. I asked the computer how to know which profile is the active one. I immediately found thousands of articles which each spell out the same eight or ten reasons why a person might wish to know which profile is active. The people writing these articles know their articles are filled mostly with spam (information we already have or don't need), but their editors are evaluated on word count, needed for diluting the concentration of ads in their publication. It's been years since the ANSWERS were easy to pick out of spam portions of the articles they appear with. From this agony-inducing swill I found information that looked like it might tell me how to spot the active profile. "Look for ".default" as part of the profile name. So I looked again,

b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ n34593ht.default-release/ n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ q412vz1p.default/ uiaqaxwu.default/


All of the profile names contain ".default."


MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO ASK THE QUESTION BELOW. Then I noticed the dates

Months ago b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ Months ago n34593ht.default-release/ Two days ago n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ Today q412vz1p.default/

Evidently, two days ago, FireFox ditched my profile and gave me a new one. This leads to my question, my reason for posting this thread:

Why?

In other words,

Why did FireFox ditch my profile and give me a new two days ago?

I understand, you probably don't know why in my particular case. I am hoping for reasonable guesses or possibilities.

Hello,

I recently update to firefox 69 and now I have Firefox 70 and it's not usable at all. When I scroll Firefox blocks very often, it's the same for all websites. I need to click on the menu button and I see what I would have seen after scrolling. So if I want to scroll, I scroll, click menu. Then again I scroll, click menu button. After a few times, there is no more problem. it's like if the whole pages were in the cache at the end. And before there was to much information for the cpu.

When I write it's the same: it's not smooth, when I write an url, firefox stops very often for a second. The url is written at the end, but it's not displayed immediately.

Firefox don't crash, it blocks by scrolling and writing. When I click a tab or a button, it's responsive, no problem. I assume there is a problem, when it must refresh after writing or scrolling.

I'm on linux, I checked that graphic acceleration is enabled, no plugins. I tried to delete the directory ".mozilla" several times, start firefox in safe mode, but nothing helped.

Does somebody has an idea ?
