With two tabs in use, my fully updated Firefox uses 350 MB of memory or more, about 36% of available memory on this 2013 Windows 10 Pro Dell.

Is this level of memory usage typical, or possibly indicative of a problem?

[Background: My only problem is some web pages taking a long time to load, which could have many possible causes of course. I do employ most of the available security protection in Firefox Options/Privacy and Security, judt use Windows security software for monitoring, show no viruses on Malwarebytes.... I have never before now looked at Task Manager Processes with just a browser running, nothing else. I have checked out the online recommendations.]

Just downloaded Ff on new W10 laptop. No add-ons, but Ff hamburger icon options and Right-click options never worked:

(This is from my Desktop computer, so can't Share Data.) New laptop computer, with pre-installed W10, obviously trying to ram Edge down my throat. I knew from a previous computer that that is rubbish, and it actually has the same problem. Surely that must throw some light. And MS Edge won't even accept bloody MS's own Japanese IME email input, or probably any of the other languages I use (the even more execrable Windows Mail being unusable), which my newly installed latest version of Ff does. I can't bear to look yet, but I know Edge will have been reset as default browser behind my back.

Hi there, I recently refreshed my firefox browser and since then most of my addons don't work and stuck on loading.

After some inspections and opening the their console log, they all return the same errors: Unchecked lastError value: Error: Could not establish connection. Receiving end does not exist.

   sendMessageToTab moz-extension://0d7987e4-a999-409d-bbb5-36412076c686/content/scripts/SymBfw.js:112

the complete log of one of them (dark reader) can be found here https://pastebin.com/4tqd1A4H

I tried to refresh the browser again, and even reinstall it but the problem persist and now affect almost all of the addons installed (dark reader, adblock, norton password manager)

I get the same error log from foxy-gestures and facebook container, but they seem to work just fine and the error log doenst repeat it self every few seconds.

p.s. The browser is updated..

The two pages of my website can be found here:

https://www.lightfigures.com/metaphysical-diaries/ https://www.lightfigures.com/spiritual-diaries/

For some reason, and only on Mozilla Firefox (not Explorer or my Tablet) when I click on the links that should bring up pdf files, I am shown a save the file dialogue box. This only happened recently when i made some changes to the WordPress specs, but these changes did not have on effect on other browsers. Any help here would be really appreciated!

Thanks,

-Charles

I like to have my Favorites Icon in the exact middle of the screen. I was able to do this by first adjusting the URL vs Search sizes with the drag and THEN with customize add the Favorites icon between them. After a recent update this no longer works. When I add in the icon the URL & Search bars jump back to their original position. They no longer remember where they were set. This is definitely different, and a loss.

So at home I use 2 x browsers: Chrome & Firefox, with FF being my default browser. Ive also been using both browsers at work, until now cos they now "manage" our Chrome on all PC's. Ive exported my Chrome passwords to .csv and removed all my passwords that are not work related. Ive signed out of syncing Chrome on my work PC. Ive removed all my bookmarks (except for work) and cleared all my browser history, cache etc "all time". What Ive noticed now when Ive opened my Firefox that any bookmark folders have been removed simultaneously, and if i add anything on my FF, it auto adds to the Chrome browser. What else do I need to do here please? Im drawing a blank as to what else I need to do....

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

I think this is a bug, but thought I'd ask here first.

On FireFox 76.0.1, Windows 10, 64 bit

This is not resolving (names changed for privacy)

none

The URL resolves correctly when used alone. Clicking View Image on the browser right mouse menu on the alt ('none') link also resolves correctly. According to the dev console Network tab, it's not even trying to access the specified URL, and hovering over it on the Inspector tab reports "Cannot load image"

The page containing that image definition works correctly in Chrome, Edge beta, and Opera.

Thanks! Dan

I know there a quite a few os this same question, but they're old and none of their solutions work.

I have checked Block Audio and Video Autoplay in my settings, but Firefox does not block them. Audio block seems to work sometimes but video block never does.

This is extremely annoying and I need help.
