I use firetox to browse youtube, FB, and some blog. But, when I use for a while time, I felt my PC slow down, and check task manager, it shows that Superfetch is using my disk to release some memory for Firefox, and my Firefix use 17% of CPU and about 5G memory in one process(there are more than one process), it almost use 99% memory I have, and suddenly the usage goes down to hundreds of megabyte.

I have tried disable addons, refresh Firefox.

Firefox is up to date P.S. It is hard to open about:memory because I will get stuck when it happened.

I've installed firefox in my laptop, and I want to use it in my PC with same bookmark, settings, cookies.. all same

What I have done is: I copy Firefox (whole folder where firefox.exe exist), then apply the profile. It works well, no trouble until now.

But, I have question: is copying whole installed firefox to another PC (without installation) is okay? From security and privacy perspective..

Hi. I use Firefox from many years. Today I was trying to inspect a my web page which looks strange in my Firefox for Android but I just can't. In my desktop I have Firefox 73.0.1 and in my Android phone I have Firefox 68.5.0. If I try to connect I get a message which tells to update Firefox from 68.5 to 71.0 (minimum supported version) but I can't find this version anywhere. I have installed Firefox Nightly for Developer in my phone but now the problem is that the version is too recent... What should I do?

Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

I downloaded something one day then I went on Firefox. I was able to go on Google without a problem, but when I went on other pages, it took awhile to load then it said Problem Loading Page. It happened repeatedly. Then, I became AFK for around 5-10 minutes and got blue screened to death. Is there any resolution to that?

Hello, My internet connection Wi-Fi was suddenly off while I was on this website "www.mangago.me", when the Wi-Fi was back on, Firefox gave me a warning that the site in not secured, although I was using it normally minutes ago, I ignored the warning and choosed to visit site anyway, then happened the problem that the site doesn't load anymore, it doesn't work and just load some basic words and figures but it doesn't work, and the lock sign above says that it's "Insecure connection". Also, next to the link address there are some weird letters that seems to be the problem "http://www.mangago.me/?__cf_chl_jschl_tk__=24df23c83a66024051f96aa918da6e486986fe3b-1598272797-0-AeyqkKqzGGRLalXK6AI_heM28f3XtoICyoi6t9Vghtj5RKRMQwNlcf4OgvldTnz8EIok0TqjXSY259YzVr9woOAOFazEKdse_9qu1QNH9S1iJVJeoqwEG6Gjrs8L4b4aKSKCyRtQC4BEfFEJJY6nz7RBVMexFAtbggJ4nG24q7u9VTmq1XhGr04awWCCZSje5gMA9mxprLZGDoMuf-a_3BlpjgyXCCrQHxpDMb6FOJqEx5rOU6f7_YblvLOXKLN91U5MCSn7aYKk5o_R74fJbdM". Although the website used to load without them with clean address like this "www.mangago.me". I tried using other browsers and it loaded the site perfectly,but Firefox doesn't load this site at all. So can u solve this problem for me?

Hi - I wonder if anyone can shed some light on this issue I've been having with Android Firefox?

Whenever I press the 'menu' key on my phone while running FF (tried with 16 and beta/17), the application crashes immediately. I briefly see my Android homescreen, then the FF page asking me to submit a crash report to Mozilla. I've done this, of course, and one of the links is attached.

I'm a bit surprised that I have not been able to find any mention on the interwebs about this issue. Perhaps someone can let me know what's going on?

Cheers Charlie
