I've been using Firefox 63.0 for quite some time and had dozens of websites open. I referred to these websites frequently. After checking some emails this morning, I decided to RESTART my laptop. It turned out this was a HUGE mistake!! When I went to "Recent Items" as I usually do to find the Firefox link, the only version available was 70.0.1. Not only was 63.0 NOT in "Recent Items" I could no longer find it in my Download logs. I had chosen NOT to begin using version 70.0 because there was no mechanism to move my open site from 63.0 to 70.0. HOW DO I FIND AND OPEN 63.0 OR, ALTERNATIVELY, GET 70.0 TO FIND AND RETAIN THOSE SITES I HAD ON MY 63.0? I should note that ALL MY PASSWORDS where required were stored on the 63.0 browser and are NOT present when I use the 70.0 version!!

When I last opened Firefox and entered a website, it did not load at first. Instead there was a message about OpenResty being installed or running. Since then there has been no other issue.

What is OpenResty, should it be running on Firefox? Do I have a problem.

I run the current version, with Adblock Plus, Duck Duck Go, and Facebook Container extensions.

I use the washingtonpost.com website multiple times daily. I just went to that site. Instead of the WAPO, the site opened to openresty.com. Openresty.com has replaced my Washington Post site and shortcut -- but ONLY in Firefox. The Washington Post site is up and running. I can reach the WAPO in Chrome on the same computer, my son can reach it in Safari and Chrome on his computer. I don't know how to get rid of this or if it is a threat. Thanks.

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Hello, In my Firefox password manager (Lockwyse), I have the credentials of a valid twitter.com account of someone I don't know. It looks like a nice security hole. Am I seriously worried about the security of my own password? How and who should I inform Mozilla about this serious problem? Thank you in advance for your assistance ? Cordially.

My firefox tabs has been crashing, and it has been getting far far worse. Practically none of the tab will open longer than 5 milliseconds. Other browsers works perfectly fine. I tried starting it on safe mode, no good. Tried clean reinstalling firefox, no good.

Can anyone help me why firefox is specifically crashing? About a month ago it worked perfectly fine.

I need help! Everyday I have at least 8 Chinese Hackers that show up on on the top in the list of websites visited on my Firefox. The entire page is in Chinese with Chinese pictures. Please see the attached images. I have no idea how long they have been there prior to being so bold to openly show themselves. I certainly have no idea of what they have uploaded or downloaded on my laptop. How can I get rid of them and what can i do to prevent them coming back? I know a lot of weird things have been going on in my computer that I have absolutely no reason nor explanation for. this has been going on for at least the last couple of years or more. I have had 3 computers to crash in a short period of time which I feel they have done. Spyware shows I have had a keylogger for a long time but all of the files it takes me to are protected and I have not been able to delete them. BillCowanjr@gmail.com

Hello,

since months I have problem with automatic launch of Firefox on my computer, It's really insupportable. I'm ready to abandon firefox. I'm on windows 10 and I use Firefox 83. There is 3 different sessions on my computer and only one has the problem.... my session. Firefox launch a new windows always and regularely, when the computer start, and all the time during the use of my sessions. If i'm already on Firefox, a new windows open's.... If I close this one, few second after an other open's..... If I put this one on background, about 1 min after again an other open's. Like this always and indefinitevely. Whatever my use of the computer or the site to visit. Even when I don't use internet and use other software to work, Firefox starts up and goes in front of my software. If I let my session opened and I do nothings, after a certain time a lot of firefox windows are open. You can easily understand why I say that It's really insupportable... and this only with Firefox on my session.

My computer is protected with antivirus, and I did a full scan several time, I also tried with an other antivirus software. I used 2 softwares for detect malware... Nothing. I try to uninstall and reinstall Firefox, but the problem still the same after reinstall. I already set the "toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart" on "false" but firefox start alone again, again, again...

Does anyone has an idea of what is the problem and what I can do ?

Thanks.

Several days ago (approximately 12-3-20) my Internet Download Manager add-on stopped working. Removing it and reinstalling it by using a link provided by IDM does not work. It will work only if I open the webpage where I intend to download (e.g.--YouTube) BEFORE I reinstall the add-on and only for as long as that page remains open. Closing the page and then reopening it somehow deactivates IDM, as it will no longer link to the video I want to download. Have tried everything i can think of to solve this, including deactivating all other add-ons and by uninstalling and reinstalling the IDM program itself. I also unchecked the "block popup windows" management tool within Firefox itself. Anyone have any ideas what is happening? Initially, I also received the error message added below, but as far as i can tell, none of my other programs are set to block IDM. The error message no longer appears.

Hi,

I recently updated, only to find out that all my passwords had disappeared :(. I checked my profile and there were three 0Kb files: logins.json, logins.json.corrupt and logins-backup.json. cert9.db and key4.db are still there and aren't empty. I'm on Arch Linux, so no previous version as well. Is there anything I can do to restore my passwords?

Nach Englisch (US) Hello people,

unfortunately since today I can't use Firefox anymore. Every time I want to start the program, an error sound comes up and nothing else happens.

There is no error message, no crash log, nothing. Just an error tone and Firefox does not open.

I have already uninstalled Firefox 10 times and also restarted the PC 10 times. Have also deleted the registry and once completely everything from Firefox. Even the profiles, just everything.

I even deleted programs that were on at the same time as Firefox when the error first occurred.

What should I do :(?

Greetings and thanks in advance!

Updated to Firefox 83 and now my browsing history in 'History' and in 'Show All History' will not delete despite my preference settings being correct and having tried deletion in all possible ways. Something is wrong because after I have clicked 'Clear Recent History' or closed Firefox with 'Delete on closing' selected, the preference page shows a change in the kb being used to store history, yet the browsing history has not been cleared. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or let Firefox know?

Issue #1 I have the automatic updates turned off, but Firefox occasionally updates anyway. How can I prevent this from happening?

Issue#2 This is somewhat related to issue #1. I turned off the automatic updates specifically because I did not want Quantum, but Firefox updated automatically, despite the automatic updates being turned off.. I have an older system, and it cannot handle running five processes for Firefox at one time. As a result, my system becomes increasingly slower as time goes by. As running multiple serves absolutely no discernible purpose, is there any way to prevent Firefox from running multiple processes?

Issue #3 Firefox recently updated automatically (again) without my permission, and since the most recent update, the pop up blocker is not working properly, specifically with Yahoo. It is blocking images, and windows that I bring up, but is not blocking what it is supposed to block, and will not let me add an exception for Yahoo. How can I fix this?

I am a Computer Science major, and have been using Firefox since it came out, but I am going to make a change if I can't fix these issues. Firefox is becoming more of a hassle than it is worth.

I have found the dump files at AppData\Local\CrashDumps but as FF does not run, I have no idea how to analyze it.

I am in despair and soon so far that I switch to Crome...

Has anyone any idea? Thanks, magu
