At some (random) point Firefox starts comsuming CPU very intensive. I can't detect any circumstances why and when it happens. Just after some period of using it freezes for a couple of second and then becomes slow and starts using CPU. I reload it and everything works fine again.

I use recommended perfomance settings and Firefox Developer 86.0b9 (64-bit). Please let me know if I can provide any additional information to help to solve the issue.

I am trying to set up SYNC and other services on a new download to Firefox 85.0.2, but the entry is returned as "invalid password." The password I entered (twice) is NOT invalid -- after the password was rejected by Firefox I used it successfully to log in to another device (on which I also use Firefox, but a Windows version). It also works to log in to my e-mail on Safari, but the password is rejected by Firefox as I try to use it as verification to set up SYNC and other settings. (BTW, I had to reload FF because when my MAC updated some aspect of the operating system last night, it completely erased the Firefox version that has been on this Macbook for 7+ years.) Is there a glitch in the interface of software for @att.net and the software for this current version of FF for Mac?

Hi! Have just changed primary email address on my Firefox account. When I open Firefox Monitor it now only shows this new primary email address as being monitored. Previously there were four other email addresses being monitored - they appear to have been removed as a result of changing the primary email address... Clearly this is not a major issue and the email addresses in question can again be added, but just wondering about the logic in doing this, as all other data of my account remains unchanged. Regards, Colin

Hi!

As the Header says. Regulary I work with my Macbook Air (latest generation) connected to an external monitor, also with external mouse and keyboard, Macbook Air is closed. When I disconnect the USBC-Hub from my Macbook, open it und want to proceed, there is a 80% chance that Firefox freezed. There is no error message, sometimes I still hear some youtube video playing, but I can not interact with Firefox any more, so I have to close it and restart. This is really annoying as I have to reopen all of my tabs again, sign in and stuff.

Do you have an idea how to fix this?

Best regards Jonas

So I've disabled Firefox updates because of the personal preferences. It keeps nagging me every day with the modal to update. How do I disable this annoying useless feature?

Firefox 85.0 on mac os.

I've tried searching "about:config" for all preferences that contain "update" and look like timers and changed the timestamps to something in the far future. Still no dice, the update dialog keeps appearing every day like clockwork.
