I've been using firefox for many years now without any trouble. But just last week, I found it takes a very long time to load even a simple web page. For example, google.com takes 4-5 minutes to just show the text, and 7-8 minutes to fully load. I also use Chrome and it does not have this problem. I've already tried "refresh firefox", and uninstalled all plugins, and it is still slow. I am using Firefox version 78.0.1 (64-bit) and using Windows 10.

Hi,

I've encounter this problem. Whenever I play Youtube video using Firefox, my Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation tends to use high memory (sometimes up to 1.5GB). This issue didn't happen to Chrome, Edge or Media Player. What went wrong? Attached are the screenshots of the memory usage by each of the browsers and media player

Suddenly, all my passwords got deleted from Firefox last week, and when I went to check, I found that a new version of Firefox had just been installed on my windows 10 desktop. I got the passwords back, but not only do most of them still not work, but even when I sign in manually, they don't work, so I have to reset them for each site (and usually I can reset it to exactly the same password I have been using all along, which is strange by itself). The next time I go to that site, again my password doesn't work, so I open up Chrome and get in with no problem. Thus, it is not just the saving of my passwords that isn't working in Firefox, it is that these sites are not recognizing my correct passwords when I type them in manually on Firefox. Has this happened to anyone else had this problem, and is there a solution? I have used Firefox for years and love it, but I can't continue to use it if it takes me forever to get into all these websites. Thanks.

Up until the release of 78.0.1, I have been deleting items from the address bar by highlighting the item and then holding the Shift key and tapping Delete. This doesn't work now, much like when it changed from just hitting the Delete key, so what is the process for deleting specific items from the address bar now? The Help pages are no help because they still say to do the Shift+Delete way.

hi, Firefox 77.0.1 (32-bit) in Windows 7 crashed completely and i had to taskkill /im firefox.exe /f

this has happened a few times before, and up to this point Firefox could always restore the last session when reopened (maybe minus any last minute pages or any pages causing errors)

this time, the browser restored many pages, some of them are pages/tabs that i had already closed days before the crash (that i do not need) and also it didn't restore tens of tabs that i had opened afterwards (that i need) the missing tabs are not tabs that i opened right before the crash, they were open for at least one or two days in other words, the session restored is an earlier/older version and not the session i was having during/near the crash

is there something i can try to restore the correct session fully? would there be another restore file i can use? thank you for your time

One is abstracted, clicks ok, and destroys their well set up browser for no reason at all !!!

You should rename the damn "refresh" or better completely trash it!

This is mostly a heads-up, in case others run into this problem.

For months I have been unable to log into my healthcare site (https://www.medicare.uhc.com/ via https://www.healthsafe-id.com/) on Firefox (latest PC version). I contacted UHC about the problem. All they did was recommend using a different browser. They passed the problem to level two, who I never heard from.

After many different attempts to localize the problem, I discovered the problem was with the Privacy Possum add-on. I am opening this so that others might find it if they run into the problem. I have removed that add-on, and have provided feedback to Firefox that it does not seem to be adequately supported at this time. I think they should remove it from availability, if they can.

Windows 7SP1. With the Firefox 78.0.1 update, search with Amazon.com, You Tube, Facebook, Reddit, Wikipedia and Twitter appear below the address bar when I start to type the url. I only have as default DuckDuckGo and Start Page HTTPS selected in options, and no alternatives.

I saw the one reply to this issue to use the about:config, browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches, change to false. This did not work.

Why has this been done? I don’t want them and I don’t use them. How do I get rid of this?

Greetings. Yesterday facebook was loading fine, now it doesn't load. The login page appears, i enter my credentials and all i get is the blue top bar and a couple of buttons that don't work. It is working fine on microsoft edge and on my laptop also running firefox. I tried running in safe mode and deleting facebook cookies, it didn't help. I used an extension to change my user agent to a mobile one and the mobile facebook page seems to load fine. User agents for other browsers don't load as well. What is going on?

When I signed on to my computer this a.m. and clicked on the Firefox icon from my Task Bar (on the bottom of the page) to bring up my homepage, it wouldn't go. I rec'd a msg stating it "couldn't find" a .dll file or something. When I clicked on the icon on my desktop, it started a whole new page - I lost all my "saved" pages and my "favorites" menu was gone! What happened and how can I get my "normal" Firefox page ?

Gmail.com just flat-out refuses to load. It works literally everywhere else, but the vast majority of the time it's acting like I'm not connected to the internet at all. I've managed to...trick it into connecting twice now by closing the tab, attempting to go to gmail.com in a new tab, then leaving it alone for about five minutes and coming back to remind it that I'm still trying to load the page it seems to have forgotten to load. I'm not exactly locked out of my email, but what the hell is going on?

FF now forces unwanted dropdown list in Address Bar despite Preference settings

FF 78.0.1 installed. Why is FF search now forcing a drop down list of these undesirable websites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. I never use these websites, I don't want to interact with them, I don't want to be told about them, I don't want to be directed to them. I don't want to be distracted with extraneous 'options' that divert my attention from the task at hand. This overrides my Preference settings. I already turned off or deleted all the alternative search engines "that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter keywords." None of these new website additions are in that list.

Is there a simple way to get rid of this without monkeying around with internal settings? Company and public libary users are locked out of this.

PLEASE!!! Firefox is not doing anyone favors by forcing new features without warning or explanation in mandatory updates. We keep losing basic functions like the ability to see URLs in the address bar -which I do need - and then spend a lot of time trying to figure out why something unwanted like this started happening and whether it can be stopped.
