From [extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems]:

> Note: If you have a large number of extensions, it may be quicker to enable more than one extension at a time. The method with the fewest number of restarts required is: Enable half the extensions in this list, then restart Firefox and test for the problem. If the problem reoccurs, you know that the faulty extension is one of the ones you just enabled. If the problem does not occur, you know the faulty extension is one of the disabled ones. Repeat the process until the faulty extension is found.

That's still slow. Is there a way to make this process quicker? In WordPress or Obsidian there is a plugin to handle this.

Around August of last year I started getting this issue where I am unable to reach any Google related site like Youtube, Gmail and such. It drove me crazy and at some point I started using other browsers because of this issue. Sometimes my request goes through and sometimes its blocked. I have disabled my anti-virus, stopped all plugins, but all my attempts at fixing this were in vain.

My job requires for Boolean and New String configurations inside of the about:config section of Firefox. I've been doing this manually by copying and pasting the lines, but I would like to automate this process via a .bat file if possible. I've created a .bat file for mapping network drives before but I've never created one for running a script in a browser before so I'm a noob.

I need the .bat file to convert boolean values to false and add strings. If possible, I would also like for this batch file to change the homepage to a page of my choosing. Any and all help would be appreciated, Thank You!

Hello,

I am experiencing a persistent issue with web browsers on my Lenovo Legion T5 26IAB running Windows 11 Home. Regardless of whether I use Mozilla Firefox, the browser frequently crashes. This happens at least once a day, and it seems to be unrelated to the number of tabs open or the specific content being viewed. I did the help -> diagnose mode without plugin and it crashed too, im not sure what this is realted to.

The crashes often present with an error message suggesting a failure in the new tabs or trying to load a old one, despite the fact that my system's RAM usage is typically around 60-70%. I have already updated the BIOS, Lenovo drivers, and NVIDIA graphics drivers, but the issue persists.

I'm seeking advice on what might be causing these browser crashes. Is it possible that there's a compatibility issue with Windows 11 Home? Could it be related to the graphics card or its drivers, even though they are up-to-date? I have not changed the power cable from my old PC; could this be a factor?

Any insights, suggestions, or similar experiences would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to determine if this is a hardware issue, a driver conflict, or something else entirely.

Thank you in advance for your help.

When I try to log out of my financial institution's web site using the Firefox browser, the "Sign Out" link is dead. (This issue began last month.) That sign-out link works as it should when using the Edge or Chrome browsers.

I've installed each offered update to the Firefox software. I always delete temporary files, cookies, histories and caches etc. after ending an internet session. Is there some way for me to troubleshoot this specific issue at my end (i.e., check settings)?

Otherwise, I'll continue signing out from that web site by closing the browser. Cheers

Hi!

I get repeated messages that I use an old version despite having downloaded the most recent version. When i try to start Firefox it won't start, I only get a message and the precise wording of the message is" You've launched an older version of Firefox Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox." Then I get two choices, either "Exit" or "Create New Profile". If I choose the first, I exit. If I choose the latter and create a new profile then I loose my bookmarks and browsing history. Appreciate any solution you might have

Not sure the best way to describe the issue, but it seems like Firefox is not able to or doesn't clear memory when streaming Hulu for a while. It just slowly accumulates memory usage and eventually just hits a point where the tab crashes and doesn't continue until you close and reopen the site.

Is there a way to mitigate this or is it a known issue where it can't clear memory?

I have 32GBs of ram (about half occupied system wide), but Firefox appears to cap out globally between 7 and 8GBs, then Hulu freezes, forcing me to close the tab and go back to its home page.

Hi, I read through another thread where someone was having this same issue and there was no resolve because no one seemed to understand the issue. My issue is that I can't clear the "Save Files to" setting under "Files and Applications\Downloads" and leave it at "Always Ask". What I wind up with is a lot of clutter in my Downloads folder. So my question is, How do I correct this setting so FireFox stops saving files in places that I don't want them saved?

I was having some hard drive trouble so I formatted my pc. I did not think much of the browser favorites and tabs because they should have been synced.

This time, however, I seem to be unable to retrieve the data from my old computer, there is even a computer in my synced items (I'm hoping from the system before restoring, windows 11 on what used to be windows 10) but am unable to get anything from it, or see the history ect
