Before the attempted "repairs" I had a browser that idled at 700mgs on the home page of the browser, now after over 15 hours on this damnable site, and all the repairs attempted the browser now idles at 800mgs on the home page. It seems the "people" of mozilla have deleted my previous question since the Moderator came out to brow beat and insult me because jscher2000 withheld the data needed and start investigating my use of the browser rather than answer question.

Hi guys,

I don't know if this is happening to you too, but it's getting me crazy. Since the latest upgrade (firefox 75), I open the program and start working normally. After one hour or so, I can not open any new tab, I have to close everything and reopen firefox again to start opening the same pages I got before to continue working with one more tab. For the first hour, everything is working as normal.

This also happens if I try to open a new window instead of a new tab.

I have tried to reset the profile but this does not do anything. Also, I have tested to start in safe mode without any add-on, but the problem is still there.

Anyone with the same problem?

Thanks!

Would like a way to save the pinned and other tabs I have open in someplace, so when they get deleted I don't have to rummage thru last months History and dig out each one over again. A simple "Save this layout with date and name" somewhere would be great.

I'm having an issue when I select the Bookmarks or History menus from the toolbar. The final button on the bottom is cut off, which I think takes you to the pop-out window to view your library. The attached screenshot kind of shows what's going on. The cut off point is where the Windows taskbar starts, I wasn't able to capture it in the screenshot.

This has been asked elsewhere, but my situation is different as I run every Firefox session in a Sandbox which deletes after exit. I don't generally use Firefox signed in, but when I do sign in I get two emails every time, and it is driving me nuts.

I can find a preference or security setting to turn these off. The risk should be mine to take if I so wish it; hate nannying.

Anyone got a solution? Or even a suggestion.

When I reopen a closed tab, sometimes it would just load the previous page rather than the last opened page. For example, if I was on the Guardian homepage and I clicked on an article, closed the tab, then reopened with Cmd+Shift+T, occasionally it would load the Guardian homepage instead. I can get back to the article by going back a page (Cmd + left arrow), which is kinda weird.
