hello there and good evening:3 my husband and i are having this repetitive and extremely frequent bright yellow pop up with a robot that states "a webpage might be slowing down your browser." then the option to wait, or stop it. i've ran out of patience with this notification to the point to where even though i'de hate to, i would have no choice but to switch back to chrome just to stop being spammed by this pop up while im trying to relax. it happens more frequently on youtube and walmart.com, and i just want it to stop because it seems as if when it does show up, once it starts it never stops, and it actually slows down my webpage to the point of becoming unresponsive and stalling/crashing my only webpage open at the time. my husband has the same issue and we both use windows desktop. it only started appearing after the latest update. please, can someone help me make this thing go away? its very stressful and i cant browse in peace anymore on firefox. yes we have turned off all background processes, and we both have scowered settings troubleshooting for hours at a time to no avail, it just never stops and it behaving like a really bad bug.

I have an Ubuntu desktop and I am trying to switch my browsing from Chrome to Firefox but cannot load the website "https://messages.google.com". This is actually a NEW install of Ubuntu Desktop 20.0.4 which had Firefox 86.0.1 64-bit pre-installed.

I have been using the Google Messages app via the computer successfully for YEARS on current versions of Chrome on Ubuntu (and it still works today). I have cleared Firefox cache and all data multiple times. I have restarted the browser multiple times. I have tried to hit the website in standard and private mode. No luck.

If I hit https://messages.google.com/ I get the pretty page with icons then click "messages for web" link in the right corner which redirects me to "https://messages.google.com/web/authentication" and I get a blank white page that never changes. Ever. With Chrome the next thing I would see is a QR code to scan with the phone app ... then it works. Nothing with Firefox.

How do I clear site data when I DON'T Know which site is causing the problem?

I use https://www.swapadvd.com/ (https://www.swapadvd.com/members/my_lists/wish_list.php). In the past, Over time the site logs me out but when I return, it logs me back in. Lately, when I return it tries to log me in but it then loops. Clearing all site data seems to eventually stop the loop. But I have no idea which site is storing the data that causes the loop. Is there some way to determine the problem site so I can block it from storing site data? Or automatically delete all site data? Rick Grayson [email]@sbcglobal.net

hi, whoever reads this. I've noticed a problem recently in some websites where certain elements (e.g. logos and icons) completely disappear and get replaced by strings of text, which I'm assuming is the code that is used to create them. Usually, it's just one icon, typically a search or menu icon, but there have been more drastic cases, such as the screenshot of the Encyclopaedia Britannica website that I attached. Notice that many buttons, while still functional, are covered with strange text. One thing I'm suspecting is that I intentionally or inadvertently disabled an element (or something of that sort, sorry for my ignorance in the specificities) ages ago that was supposed to make these work, but I don't remember what I disabled, if I ever did. But other than that, I have no clue what causes this. In Tor, where I don't have an account and never interfered with the setup or settings, everything seems to work just fine; the buttons are right there. Hope someone can be of help.

Or will you need a separate Bugzilla account?

What is throwing me is that when I visit https://bugzilla.mozilla.org I am prompted for my Primary PW, and FF autofills the login form with my old FF support account credentials, indicating that the old support account and the bugzilla page are recognised by FF as being linked?

So before I try logging into https://bugzilla.mozilla.org with either the auto-filled old FF support credentials, or my newer FF Account credentials, does this page come under your FF Account umbrella? Thanks.

Hello, is there a way to turn off the new print function. I want my print program to open and not a complicated print program that cannot be used by us. Since this new setting, we can no longer print properly and have to do all print jobs with a screen print.

Once again the current update of Firefox (87.0) eliminated the ui.submenuDelay setting. Screwed up everything when I tried to install previous version.

ui.submenuDelay is the most important feature for me. I hate the bookmarks opening on hoover, there is no delay at all.

Please fix and remember.
