I have been getting this error lately. Later I noticed it only seems to happend when Firefox is running. literly can't find anything online what so ever. So this is baffeling. I don't believe I have done anything to make it happen. I have had like 1,350 tabs before Firefox had an update (and it fked it up) so it might of been some update. Firefox hasn't been nearly that good sense. Im prob at 150-200 tabs right now and I have never seen this message. Also firefox LOVES ram. I have 16GB and over time it EATS it. like 12gb and when i hit 99% the computer slows down of course and I have to restart. All bc of firefox... see pic

Hello I installed Kaspersky in my PC but I no longer uninstalled I see anytime I open the browser Firefox likely a black screen covering the page but it vanishes as just as the browser full-opened, so what's this by God ? It is the first time I have seen Before I installed the Kaspersky antivirus it didn't appear. I thought it is a matter of protection But after uninstalling Kaspersky ( antivirus ) the black screen is still seen  ??

Everytime I go to facebook before I sign in a grey overlay appears on the sign in page and when I scroll down this message appears. I'm getting tired of it. Does anyone know how I can bypass all this and sign straight in like I used to be able to. I also find it strange that I seem to be the only person experiencing this as when I search for similar instances I get nothing. This started about a week ago, I have to press 'accept all' all the time, why can't this be automatic. Thanks for any help.

Hello,

See on the joined image, older Firefox and last one. When this is a text in another language like this, this is ugly, and even on usual language, I'm not blind, I can see the old lighter underline!

Why this? Can I change it maybe in userChrome.css?

Hi everyone,

I'm on w7-64. I updated to FF86, and there were obvious problems with it, so I installed 84. Works fine, except that now I'm noticing twitter and facebook get slower over time. I didn't notice that before reinstallation of 84.

I just created a new profile and refreshed. Will monitor. But what is the usual issue when firefox is doing this? Basically its not releasing memory correct?

I tried useing Firemin (https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/firemin/), and there was a noticable difference with twitter and firefox. But I'd rather just fix the issue instead of using a bandaid if I can.

During the reinstallation of FF84, I did delete a few registry entries (I followed a page like this to do it (https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-email/164280-remove-firefox-completely-then-reinstall.html)). But I don't know how that could effect releasing memory.

I'll keep you updated, but does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

I set process limit to 1. Firefox runs 5+. Pray tell what does setting the process limit do exactly? Also Firefox says it sets the process limit automatically to optimize system specs. I've installed FF on machines with specs ranging from low budget build to godbox yet it always defaults to 4 processes. Then runs more. Is it all BS? Do tell please?

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

I sought without answer to see how to PREVENT restoring previous sessions, freezing my computer because FF did not clear previous sessions, internet access freezing when social media sites weren't cleared, as they used to be. And then, reading the solution on, how to access restoresession options, I come upon about:config and search browser.session I see the problem. Instead of setting options to clear previous history, FF now has uncountable options which - hide browsers I've deletes, like Bing - maintain restoring sessions up to 5, 10, 32 times, even though I've set the option to never - keep data I wanted deleted, in Top sites, in pocket, in other options - set Google as the default translator even though I've chosen not to use it I am seriously disappointed in Firefox and Mozilla. I have used it since I found it one- two ? decades ago because it WASN'T wired into the top-heavy, data-excessive, intrusive-spying behemoths of Google and Microsoft. Did Google buy you out, or something? I do notice that the wonderful creative-commons data options have been swallowed up by those icons of not-for-profit and community sharing, google-android, every for-profit phone companies (ATT, Verizon,etc.) How sad and ironic. I found my solution was, select 0 for many, many browser.?? options and deleting the history I found in various switches. Posting this to share my disillusion.
