Links from Gmail open a tab in Gmail (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/.), rather than the relevant website page. If I click this tab, then my Gmail account opens (duplicates) in the tab. On repeating the click (and doing so deliberately) on the hyperlink in the Gmail body, a tab does open with the relevant website page. This occurs haphazardly.

I am unable to log into my BT account using Firefox...That is BT as a whole not just emails.. All the detail are correct but I get the same message whenever I try to sign in. I've followed some instructions re; clearing cashed files etc but still nothing. I put in my email and password..tried manually as well. It opens fine in Google, so thought i'd reset my passwordand try again.. still does it. Have attached the image below even though all instructions were followed. Has been doing it for last 3 days. Have had no software updates or anything so at a total loss. Fortunatley I can still access emails etc. just a pain havingto shut down one browzer and open another to perform one task. Anybody any ideas

Cheers

The 76.01 update of Firefox has completely broken the audio function in my browser. Youtube and Yahoo Finance specifically. I have not checked further. Yes I know Windows 7 is not supported by Microsoft, but Firefox has claimed that it would support Windows 7 indefinitely. Yesterday when I opened Firefox a message said that audio and video might not work if I did not have DRM enabled. I checked and saw that I had DRM enabled, but audio did not work. A button in the message said Enable DRM, I clicked the button anyway. No audio. I restarted Firefox, no audio. I restarted my computer, no audio. I opened Chrome and everything is working fine. I did not even okay this update. I have my preferences set to NOT automatically update. it seems like Firefox is ignoring my preferences. Firefox should provide an instant downgrade to the previous version that supported audio. In the past I have downgraded a few times until things were working smoothly, but it's a headache. Now I understand Firefox makes it even harder to do that. I may just switch to Chrome permanently.

How do I scroll to bottom and scroll to top INSTANTLY. I hate the fast scroll effect that is very jerky at times depending on the website when scrolling to the top and bottom of a page.

Firefox 52.8.1 takes up a lot of RAM and CPU usage with Win 7

I have an old Win 7 laptop with very limited specs. I decided to use this version of FF (52.8.1) because I've used it before with no problems on an even older laptop with Win XP. However, the experience is not pleasant to say the least.

I'm attaching here some screenshots so we can see exactly what's going on. First image: 2 tabs, Yahoo mail, calendar = 1 GB of memory, 59% of CPU. Second image: 3 tabs, Yahoo mail, calendar, FB = 1.5 GB of memory, 55% of CPU. Third image: 1 tab, blank, after closing the other tabs = 725 MB of memory, 52% of CPU(!)

At this stage, the very latest version of Chrome is actually less resource-heavy than this version of FF.

I went ahead and did an experiment: exact same 6 tabs in Regular Mode vs. Safe Mode with add-ons disabled. Fourth image: regular mode, 700 MB of memory. Fifth image: safe mode, 420 MB of memory. So, with all add-ons disabled, I save about 300 MB of memory, which is rather substantial (as a percentage) but not dramatic.

I have "hardware acceleration" already disabled. Zero themes. My add-ons are very basic, an ad blocker, a translator, two pdf savers, a couple of video downloaders, and a cash back shopping button.

Btw, I tried the "minimize memory usage" and it freed up only 150 MB, so almost useless.

I realize this is a recurring issue with FF and that many people report usage over 4-5 GB of memory. But you can see I don't have that much RAM, plus I thought this older version would be "efficient" with Win 7.

Thank you for any suggestions!

At every firefox new updates, firefox insists on restoring extensions that I have disabled/uninstalled because they are completely useless to me and I don't want to use. Enforced Useless Extensions: Amazon.com, Amazon.com.au, Bing, Google, Twitter, OpenH264

There is also a common secret: After a new firefox update, I must dig to empty the "features folder" (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\features) which keeps also Useless "Features" like: Enforced Useless Features: doh-rollout@mozilla.org.xpi, formautofill@mozilla.org.xpi, screenshots@mozilla.org.xpi, webcompat@mozilla.org.xpi, webcompat-reporter@mozilla.org.xpi

So, Why does Firefox insist so much on reinstalling unnecessary, useless disabled/uninstalled extensions and "features"?

Like any privacy-conscious person, I do not want websites gaining access to my clipboard. I thought I had taken the necessary precautions, by setting the following preferences:

dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled => FALSE

clipboard.plainTextOnly => TRUE

Today, however, while writing in an online text box, I hit Ctrl+V and was horrified to see a very personal image inserted into the text box! (The image just happened to be in the clipboard.)

What is going on here? How could this possibly happen? Can sites still access my clipboard?

Hello,

this website: http://www.365gps.com

does not open correctly with Firefox - on my Windows 10.

It is a GPS-Platform - you can't see the "sign in" window correctly - and all the maps unfortunately don't show at all on Firefox. - and that's why it does not show the position of the GPS Tracker on the map.

(Please see the Screenshot)

If I open the same page with Google Crome it opens correctly. But of course I want to use my Firefox rather - than Crome.  :)

Is it possible, to forward this issue to somebody who can solve the problem?

Thanks a lot. Tima

Firefox Monitor notified me of a data breach of an account that was deleted automatically due to inactivity by LiveJournal.com eight years ago. How come my e-mail still got in the data breach that supposedly happened three years ago in 2017 and has just been discovered? It says the breach included e-mails and passwords. I don't even remember what password I used back then and the account is deleted, so I can't log in anymore. Is there anything I should be concerned about? How is this even possible in the first place?

I use Firefox as my browser to log into my.yahoo home page. A few days ago I noticed when logged into my yahoo account that I would keep having to re-log in even though I checked to box with AT&T to say logged in for 2 weeks. This is only happening to my email, portfolio and calendar windows. Part two is I cannot log into my yahoo/AT&T home page from my Firefox app on my iPhone. This also started a few days ago. All updates for Firefox and iOS have been installed. Tried to contact AT&T but the phone wait times have been 40+ minutes and they have not resolved anything.
