Warum erhalte ich bei Updates "BETA-Versionen", ohne dass ich diesen "Service" gewählt habe? Was ist mein "Vorteil"? Ich denke, dass Beta-Versionen per se nicht ausgereift und daher lückenhaft bzw. noch fehlerbehaftet sind. Wie kann ich diesen Status wieder loswerden?

Firefox is my favourite browser, but it has some problems. Although the team managed to fix memory leak issues with BigInt in js, but the performance is 3x slower than NodeJS compared to the latest spidermonkey (75.0b6).

To test out, I have created a simple pi calculator (open source), the website is: http://picalc.rf.gd/

The source code can be found on github, or just by clicking the "View Page Source". It seems impossible to get past 4,000 digits of Pi in firefox but in chromium I can calculate about 10,000 digits in the time firefox does 4,000 digits.

Previously, in the earlier versions (73 I guess), the memory went all the way up to 4 gigabytes while trying to calculate 5,000 digits, it's now (my current firefox version is 75.0b4, developer edition).

For the benchmarks, I have also tried NodeJS and Firefox's Spidermonkey.

screen says: The address wasn't understood.

Foxfire doesn't now how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (rtsp) isn't associated with any programs or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

Two or three weeks ago I was able to get to my router settings with Firefox. I tried to get to the "routerlogin.net" page yesterday and was redirected to another Netgear page indicating that some web browsers were "caching" the page and that is why I couldn't open the page. I uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox and it still has the same problem. I tried Microsoft Edge...same problem. Yesterday I installed Google Chrome and was able to easily access my router. I prefer to use Firefox as I have been for several years. How can I fix the problem?

Netscape router "http://www.routerlogin.net/" used to work and now FF FORCES a HTTPS connection which my local router doesn’t suppor for a LAN wired connection.

This is a LAN wired connection to an on site router that OF COURSE does NOT have any built in SSL support. FireFox now prevents my Netgear recommended connection method from working by forcing a HTTPS URL when attempting to connect to my router. If I manually correct the HTTPS and make it HTTP, FireFox just forces it back to HTTPS when I enter it. Yes, I know how to use the direct IP, but I would like my router to work as Netgear intended. (like it used too a few FireFox versions ago). YOU broke routerlogin.net.

From Firefox version 47+ icons have been changed to have outline style. I couldn't figure out how I could replace or revert them to the good old colorful ones. I know this is the trend nowadays but wireframe icons still look unprofessional and are hardly recognizable at first. I want colored icons with shades and gradients. For back/forward, refresh and home navigation buttons. For Downloads button. For the show sidebars button.

Where can I get these icons? Should I extract them from a previous version or are they still there in new versions?

How can I change them? Do I need to overwrite files in the installation folder or is there a configuration option?

In FF If I type in WhatIsMyBrowser.com, type I see "No javascript is not Enabled". I then type in 'about:config' in the address bar and see that javascript.enabled is true...but if I close/reopen FF, it reverts to "not Enabled". Is there a simple 4-5 step method of enabling javascript so that it stays enabled? Thank you.

I no longer have any:

passwords addons bookmarks history previously opened tabs user configuration

Nothing. Everything was completely wiped out. And that's just what I know about. Who knows what else is gone.

Does anyone know how I can retrieve this lost information.

Thank you.

win10 1903 i7 3770 + 12gb ddr3 + 1060 6gb

FF 75 beta 64bit enhanced tracking protection = strict content process limit = 2

I always used firefox and game at the same time . if not mistaken , cache memory should be free within a second or two after closing a tab/multiple tabs but after closing those tab for more than 10 secs , the cache memory is not being release by the browser itself

opened Firefox this morning, got the you have updated Firefox message and since then every SINGLE time i open a new tab the search/address bar doubles in size, gets a blue border and almost completely covers my bookmark bar. i have to click somewhere in blank page to get the search bar to reduce in size so i can see my bookmarks. and when i do click in search bar to type something it immediately doubles in size, gets a blue border and has a list of websites appear under the cursor. why would anyone think this is something that needed to be changed i don't know. how do i get the search bar to act like normal? i hate this doubling in size/blue border stupid thing and it makes Firefox very VERY annoying to use. especially since more often than not i open new tabs so i can click on my bookmarks. having to now click somewhere to get the search bar to become normal size just so i can actually SEE my bookmarks is REALLY ANNOYING! like find new browser annoying!

Video seizes up after running for some time. Usually it will last for a half an hour to an hour, before freezing. The time to failure seems random. Occasionally, but rarely, the video will recover without sound. The only sure fix is to log out and restart the computer. It nearly, but not always, works the first time. My Acer has Windows 10 and is about 6-months old. I don't know if it's related, but the Bluetooth app is dropped occasionally. A reboot doesn't help, but it does sometimes recover after a few days, for no apparent reason.
