I've used Firefox's protection settings on strict, until I realized how much it increases my CPU usage. This was during some experimenting after I've noticed that my Task Manager states 70%; a majority of it being used by the browser's engine (I kept it on standard and installed uBlock Origin since then).

What's with that?

As above- upload test shows about the same amount higher than Edge. This has been occurring for around 3 months since I upraded to fibre broadband. Before the upgrade FF as always faster on both down and upload speeds. Immediately afer the upgrade Edge ad FF were the same This was so for about 3-4 week after the uprade, then the FF speed fell. There have been several updates to FF and I have tried reinstalling FF and various other changes to settings all to no avail.

I am using Windows 10 latest versions on two seperate laptops,one being a Toshiba ( Windows 10 Pro) the other an ASUS (Windows 10 Home). Both have this problem. I am using the Ookla Speedtest.net and the Talktalk speedest (also supplied by Ookla) and with the same results. The problem is the same with wifi as with ethernet. I am in the UK. I thought it might be the router, but why the difference between browsers and why after a few weeks and not immediately after the upgrade? Appreciate any sggestions, thank you in advance.

BTW, I don't like white backgrounds.

But FireFox reloads the page with the error (replacing my Web app) and shows The address wasn’t understood (yes, address doesn't exist but why doesn't it show just popup message without this error message)? Is it configurable,any suggestion to remove such reload? Thanks

I am on MacOS. I am using the most recent version of Firefox (75.0). When I go to upload a file in either Gmail or Google Drive, the filesystem dialog will not come up. The browser freezes for a few seconds, I get the beach ball, then it comes back with nothing have happened. I have refreshed Firefox completely, I have tried this in safe mode without any extensions, and none of it helps.

I tried a non-Google webmail solution as well and the same thing happens.

I'm not sure if "the Navigation Pane" is the right name for the list of addresses I use frequently. E.g. if I want to go to the Microsoft help page, I would look at a list of Names (& Addresses) that I have instructed Firefox to add. In my case, i had them appear as a window on the left side of my Firefox page. The navigation pane has disappeared from my browser page. The Options selection page on my Firefox home page doesn't have a "navigation" option, or else it is hidden from my prying eyes.

Although I've checked the session restore box in Options, I had a problem. With different windows open, I closed the first one (with the tabs I wanted restored), worked with the second window, then shut down FF. When I went back to FF it would only restore the second window. I have an online backup service so I can retrieve AppData from a few days ago -- how do I use that to restore the session from the first window? thanks

When I try to print any website using either CTRL-P or clicking the Print button on the preview page, the output is always single-sided. If I try to override by selecting 2-sided mode from the Printing Properties dialog, I cannot because the option is grayed out. This does not happen in other programs such as Microsoft Word, where the same 2-sided option works. My printer is a Brother MFC-J995DW.

I have Firefox on my Macbook Pro and I have downloaded and installed it on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone. I have signed in to my Firefox account. I have clicked the sync button everywhere I can find it. It tells me it's synced, but when I look at my phone, none of the desktop info (bookmarks, history etc.) is there, even though the boxes are ticked in preferences. I have looked up the correct name of my laptop, and I have tried it from my phone and from my desktop. I have religiously followed the instructions in your help section and elsewhere on the web. Can someone please walk me through this step by step, or something. Thanks. Richard

Both my old computer and new one are Windows 10-64. Migration went without a hitch and I was able to restore all my bookmarks and preferences. But contrary to the promise made in the migration instructions, the passwords are no where to be found, and neither were the add-ons I was using. I can deal with the add-ons, but the passwords are a real problem. Before the migration this new feature called Lockwise would always help me find the right password, but in the new setup Lockwise was totally empty and I'm having trouble getting into some of my regular sites. I still have the backups so I'm wondering if the Lockwise and password information is located in another folder that I can copy and migrate. Can anybody help me with this? And if it is possible to migrate, how do you do it? I would hope its just an easy copy and paste like it was for Firefox.

Isn't there a setting somewhere for toggling whether Firefox's window caption incorporates the current page's title? Labels on my shell taskbar seem to be more meaningless with it enabled. What if I intend to activate the Firefox window and immediately switch to a tab other than the one currently active? From this aspect you can see how Firefox really isn't streamlined for subconcious interoperation with other applications.

Please help. Thanks!

On NBC, I get a screen reading "Well this is awkward. Sorry, it looks like the video or page you're looking for seems to have disappeared - or maybe it never existed to begin with." CBS simply won't let me play the program I select; it's just a black screen. Since both networks had the same problem on the same date, and it hasn't changed since then, I am assuming it is something to do w/my computer settings on Firefox, but have been unable to figure out what to change. Can you "talk" me through it?

When I reopen a closed tab, I would expect it to open on the last page I visited with that tab. For some reason it has been opening the first page I visited with that tab. For example if I visited the following websites "new tab page -> google -> mozilla support" and then closed and reopened this tab, the page would be google. This has only started happening in the last week or two, so I'm wondering if this is intentional or if there's something in about:config that I can change.
