On certain websites this "Geckomain" process destroys my CPU to 100% and maxes my network traffic with more upload traffic than download, using a lot of my data and bandwidth etc. This is a major concern because I have to pay for my data, it's not unlimited. If left open this process will consume more than 1.5gb of RAM while nothing functions. The only way to stop it is to leave the website. I have to use these websites for my job, so I can't just avoid them. I need a resolution ASAP. Thank you.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Hello! I Can´t com in on Super City.I get this message: Failed to connect: Potential security issue Firefox detected a problem and did not proceed to sc-fb-lb.playkot.com. The website is either incorrectly configured or your clock is set to the wrong time.

It's likely that the site's certificate has expired, which prevents Firefox from connecting securely. If you visit this website, attackers may try to steal information such as passwords, emails or credit card information. Best Regards Sig-Britt Larsson

The newest version of Firefox 89.0 (20210527174632) was installed the other day and now I have all background colors in light gray.Tried to change themes - I have default in light colors, but even the when picking the theme it is displayed with night blue background for tabs that are not open (what I used to have) - instead now I have all tabs and the menu bar in the same bland light gray color. Please help me establish my old color scheme before the upgrade. Thank you.

Re: "In your firefox preferences, choose language and appearance, under font, check you have background set to white, and text set to black."

Any screenshots for this example? I use 8 different browsers and Firefox is the most counter-un-intuitive browser I've ever used. Why would Settings refer to "Language" to set the background color? There is no link that I can use to Fonts and Colors under Language and Appearance to change the background color. All I can do is select a Default font, Size, Advanced, and Colors. But In colors the Background is evidently set to white but it's actually black. So I must map my way around Text and Background, Text, Background, Use System colors, Override the colors specified by the page with your selection above, Only with High Contrast themes, Link Colors, Unvisited Links, Visited Links, Underline links.....yada yada yada blah blah blah.

I keep accidentally muting my tabs when all I want is to click on them to switch to them.

I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

How do I do that?

My version is 89.0

Whenever I type the word 'google' for any reason, even when composing an email, Firefox automatically opens up a new tab. Google is my home page so the new tab that opens shows the google main search page. What I have to do is type goo gle and then insert the cursor before the 'gle' part and back space. How do I stop this, please?

Firefox just updated a few minutes ago, and since the update my background in every website I visit is white. Previously my backgrounds were all black due to my Windows 10 "High Contrast Theme" being activated. Well since the update it seems Firefox "ignores" the Windows Theme settings and overrides them with its own. As far as I can tell, there is no way to make websites display with a black background like they did before the update. I hope this gets fixed.

When opening various webpages or within embedded media, I frequently keep getting an error message saying: "Secure Connection Failed" generally followed with the error code "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" (usually this code, however I've seen several others). While I can hit refresh or the "try again" option and it will almost always work at loading the webpage, it's incredibly annoying and obtrusive to have to do this with practically every website I visit.

I first started noticing this issue a day or so ago after switching on the HTTPS-Only mode setting in Privacy & Security. I've tried using all the various configurations of this setting (on, off, only in private) but to no avail. I've tried with my VPN on and off, I've restarted my device, and I've cleared my cookies and cached data. None of these have helped me. I'd very much like to find a fix for this so I can get back to work as normal. Thank you for any help you can provide

I'm currently using Firefox version 92 (64bit) on a Windows 10, if that information is needed.

How can I change back to version 91.0.2 from this last update. I do not like the way that favorite tabs are presented, too much space between, not helpful. I like to be able to look at my entire saved entries, not scrolling thru because they are so far apart.
