NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading

Just now I tried to make a payment to a site but the payment pop up was blocked but I don't have a pop up blocker loaded. I have had a similar experience at various times when I want to make a card payment to sites where my details are not pre stored. I can make payments to the same sites using my mobile so it must be laptop related. Not sure which security systems to check, laptop, browser or Norton . Any ideas? Many thanks Jeremy

Hola:

              Desde este verano, no me es posible cargar archivos en una dirección de correo corporativa. En las demás no tengo problemas, pero en esta salta que es "fakepath" y no permite terminar el proceso. 
              No me sucede en otros navegadores. 
              Les agradecería que me ayudasen a solventar el problema.

Cannot figure out how to use Firefox, my preferred Default browser to access FoxNews thru Directv. I do have DirectV as my main system. A while back tried to contact DirecTV, but nothing replied back. I have searched online for ideas, but so far have not had any success.

Tried going the Switcher route. Tried accessing thru DRM, which I do have enabled. Only leads I can find online date back to 2016, 2017, etc. So looking for help with yet another issue with LinuxMint. But I do love LinuxMint...PERIOD!

As always my thanks.

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Hi

Question I am redoing my computer and have considered restarting firefox at the same time being I have been on the same profile for ages and figured might be worth just restarting with a new profile.

Now I know I can import bookmarks and such into the new profile after backing them up of course.

Question I have regards passwords and log ins.

I remember some time back I had lost some files including these and was able to restore them from an old back up of the profile. I think it was 2 files.

Are these files profile specific or can they be backed up on this profile and then copied into a new profile and work OK??

Or I just saw EXPORT LOGINS if I use this will it back up all my logins and then allot me to import them into the new profile like the bookmarks back up?

Thanks

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

Is there a way for me to extend the drop-down window on the Firefox browser from the hamburger icon? I don't enjoy having to scroll down through the menu to have to access things like Options or Help when the menu drop-down could just drop down further so I don't have to scroll down. Is there a way I can customize this, or no?

Attached is a screenshot of the menu I'm talking about, with a circle

Thanks!

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!

good day! I really like your browser and enjoy working with it. I am a website developer and I really like your tools for webmasters!

But recently I have encountered a critical problem! I have a site on my local server (Denwer WAMP) that I'm working on.

I make changes to the site's css and see how it is displayed in firefox.

But there are no changes-through the inspector you can't see that I changed something in the css. At the same time, if I open the same site in another browser, for example, in Chrome, all the changes are visible. And firefox does not display until you completely clear the site you are working on from the history, because even a forced update via ctrl+shift+r does not give results!

look at the picture - an empty block appeared in chrome, but in firwefox it simply does not show css
