Why can't the open a new tab also include the option, like when opening Firefox itself, point to a URL to open? This seems to be something that a ton of people want. To me, open a new tab should have the same set of options that opening FF has. I am on the new version 63.0.1 . Thanks!

In my web app I had a customized scrollbar. In the most recent update of fire fox it duplicates my scrollbar so I have my own customized scrollbar and next to that there is fire fox's default one. They are entirely synced and scroll together. And I do not wish to hide m own scrollbars for certain reasons. Can anyone help?

This problem has been bothering me and friends for a long time. We keep hundreds of tabs open and this causes - depending on the viewed pages - very quickly high processor load with fans ramping up to max.

A temporary fix is to restart the browser with all tabs frequently - which also dramatically reduces RAM use. Because only the viewed tabs in each browser window are loaded initially, that quiets things down immediately - until more pages are opened in different tabs that use tremendous resources. Like Amazon, other shopping sites, probably some hidden miners (otherwise I often cannot fathom why it would use so much cpu).

I suggest an option for Firefox to halt/stop/suspend all tabs that are not currently selected for viewing. That is one tab per window. We have absolutely not the slightest need for any tab to do anything if it's not viewed.

In a pinch we sometimes suspend the whole firefox process via ProcessExplorer - but sometimes it doesn't resume and of course it also halts the foreground tabs. Restarting is not always possible due to pages with logins and other customizations that disappear on reload.

I would like to open firefox through selenium and upon file download, the file to be stored on another path other than the default, the downloads folder, automatically, without getting the prompt dialog.

This is can be done through configuring a new profile but I can't find any implementation example on the web.

Thank you in advance

Sometimes, when I press ctrl+t, I get the tab in my tab bar, but it is not functional(clicking it does nothing, and ctrl+pgup/dwn will show the previous tab for a few presses until it gets passed the broken tab), and the only way to close Firefox afterwards is through the menu, pressing the 'x' in the corner will do nothing. I would say this happens about 50% of the time. If I use the plus(+) at the top to open a new tab it always works. I have been having this problem for atleast the past 5 versions, or more. I have tried with a new profile, and no addons loaded, and it still happens. Is this just my computer?

Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

I am facing a issue recently in firefox that I cannot see the page contents correctly. Couple of examples : - when I open youtube.com, dont see the video thumbnail images. I see blank there. I can see the video description though. But when I click on a video link, it plays okay. - Some webpages are not rendering correctly even when there is no video.

I tried following, without success - - uninstalled and re-installed firefox - opened firefox in safe mode.

I dont have any extension. I have shockwave plugin installed. And the OS is Windows 10

A video at a Web site where I have often accessed videos now tells me the video is inaccessible because of "privacy and security settings." I don't think I have changed the settings since the last time I watched a video. In any case I have not been able to find the problem. I have tried the options for cookie settings without fixing the problem. What should the settings be?

The news website https://www.news.com.au/, if you go to any story, if you scroll more than a certain way down, then an irritating divider opens up at the bottom, and slides up.

It's always titled "More In ...."

You can click for it to go down again, but if you open 10 webpages you end up doing this 10 times, which after a while is more than a little irritating.

We have popup blockers, blockers that stop videos from auto-starting, but I'm not even clear what this 'feature' is called, let alone how to disable it short of giving up on this website.

Any suggestions?

The search boxes in the inspector window window returns no results whenever I try to search for specific key-value pairs like: role="main".

I can only get results for main or role. Is there a search string parameter/syntax reference anywhere? I've searched high and low, but articles/references found in the documentation is VERY basic.

Thanks
