After updating to version 94.0b9, the program began to slow down terribly. This is especially pronounced on YouTube: you select a search, enter a request, open two or three tabs from the proposed one with a possibly useful video ... That's it! You can go to a cafe for coffee and rolls. It became impossible to use the browser.

How to roll back to the previous version of the program?

Sub.: now Firefox Developer Edition 94.0b9 for Linux

I have used firefox for many years and really like it overall. One real problem is not being able to open new tabs to my home page (or what ever page I define to open). I have contributed to the project several times over the years but I am considering a replacement because of this issue. My hope is you might provide some solution without an addon, which always brings overhead. Please advise. Joe

Today Firefox opened with my account disconnected. No passwords. I reset my account password but still no passwords. The logins file shows a .corrupt extension. I rename this and nothing happens. Every time I re-open FF (v 93.0) the .corrupt is added and I can't get to my passwords. I have hundreds.

I've seen many post about not being able to open dropdown menu in firefox and i was unaware of this problem when creating new web page designs nevertheless, i am now experiencing this problem myself

most post about not being able to open dropdown menu simply give advice on options i can take on my browser to make it work. But that does not help me as far as clients who come to view my site, meaning my concern is that he end viewer will not see or be able to use the dropdown menus

so is there anything i can do as the designer of the webpage to fix my webpage so that it proper displays to the end client?

here is the page https://www.spellswork7.com/spells.html

any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

My 11-year-old PC (custom build, now running Windows 10) crashed badly (hard drives and Windows 10 were irretrievably broken), so I bought a new motherboard, etc. and installed a new OEM copy of Windows 10. I must reinstall almost all software, including Firefox. The old C: drive SSD is intact. After I install Firefox on the new machine, how can I restore the tabs from the last Firefox session?

I had to put in a new hard-drive into my computer that I previously was running Firefox browser on so I downloaded the Firefox back on after the new hard-drive was done. Before on my old hard-drive when I click Firefox browser and it came on, it had a ribbon across the top of the screen underneath the back arrow, forward arrow, and search URL that I used the most of in my favorites (I think it showed across the screen about 10 of my bookmarks) to click on instead of going into all my bookmarks to get. How can I put my most used bookmarks across the top of screen now instead of just clicking the "star" that show ALL my bookmarks and I have to go down to whichever one I want to use and boy do I have a bunch of bookmarks even thou they are in alphabet order? I hope someone can tell me how to do this!

FF 93.0 64-bit - Windows 10

When I booted up the system and ran FF the first time for the day, its window opened, and it even asked for the primary password. After that, nothing I typed in the URL box came out. I could open new tabs but not able to switch to them. All Chromium-based browsers and Edge in the same system worked fine.

I did the following trying to fix the problem: I restarted Win10 and ran FF93. Same problem. I restarted using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I reinstalled using the complete package. Same problem. I installed using FF92 and FF91. Same problem. I refreshed FF93 using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I used Win10 Safe Mode to run FF93. It worked. I uninstalled FF93, removed as much as I could all traces of FF and Mozilla in the Win registry, and reinstalled FF93. Same problem.

In the end, I had to use Win10 Recovery and revert to an earlier date to fix it.

The first incident happened about two weeks ago. It happened again this morning. My use of PC has been routine for years, I would say for more than a decade, or at least in the last five years. No extraordinary applications or routines.

BTW, I haven't updated my Win10 in years, because doing so often times gave me new mysterious issues to troubleshoot, courtesy of MS. You should very well know Win updates produce issues, and the bug fixes following them produce even more. The annoying thing is I would research on the issues and find out later (sometimes days) that the updates were the culprits.

This is the second time it happened to my FF93, and I feel I have to report this to get some idea about why this is happening (only to me?) and how to fix or prevent it without having to go into Recovery (again?).

How do I stop all installed firefox extensions from loading their main page after syncing?

every time I sync from a different computer or version of windows all the extensions load up their main author page all at the same time overtaking my browsing session so that I have to manually close each tab

its very frustrating On a side note Also after unnecessarily refreshing firefox and before manually changing proxy settings to "no proxy" after each refresh (Why is no proxy not the default setting anymore?) why was every webpage blocked and needing a security certificate? even google.com? and not long ago firefox crashed every tab, constantly, it wasnt even usuable but Im so dependant on its features I tolerated it but cant afford to much longer I have to use Chrome for my business as firefox doesnt always capture login/password for autologin nor for address, etc -fill in

Is it possible to restore a lost session after another session was started?

I relogged my PC then a firefox window opened (not my homepage) which i accidently closed. Then i opened firefox and it opened to my homepage. I clicked restore previous session but all that was there was the page i had just closed that i had not wanted.

I tried crashing firefox and opening previous session but still brings me to this session.

Is my only option to go through my history for last many months to open all these tabs I previosly had open in 2 pages?

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

I am using a Cambio W101 tablet with windows 10 21H1 and Firefox 93.0.

After getting the BSOD with the error message DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE I followed the recommended suggestions like checking the drivers, removing the sleep mode, changing the power options.

I continue to get the BSOD only in one specific situation but frequently. It is when I use Libreoffice as my active window, while Firefox is inactive in the background. When I use either only Libreoffice or only Firefox as my active window nothing happens. There has also not been problems with other programs.

Does an inactive Firefox do something which triggers the BSOD?
