I have an add-on ad blocker for youtube and have never gotten ads. This afternoon that stopped. I get ads with every video I click and there is no 'skip ad' on the screen. I added another top rated youtube add blocker, quit firefox and then opened it again. Before, if I clicked a video it started an ad and I could go back and then hit the video again, but now that doesn't work, but if I select to show the video in a new tab, there are no ads in that tab. What can I do to make the ads stop like they used to and never appear? Yes and my OS is Ubuntu 22.04

I would like to select and delete a subset of user names and passwords in Firefox. I have a group of about 80 logins for an old account which I no longer use. I know I can delete individual logins one at a time but doing this 80 times is a pain!

I can search for the particular account in the password list and Firefox lists them all, which is great. What I would like to do then is right click and select all followed by delete.

Is there a shortcut somewhere?

For the last few weeks ive been having difficulties with youtube, at first it was only the comment section that would load forever without stopping, but lately when ive decided to sit down andtry and solve this, i noticed that i cant access my account nor any notifications either. And even if i type in my name and go into my account manually, there are no links nor any menues available, everything is black except the videos.

I cant even sort the videos to the "latest upload" without the page start loading forever without stopping. I can access everything with other browsers though, OperaGX, but thats not my main browser, so i dont want to switch over to Opera whenever i want to use youtube.

Does anyone else have the same problem? And what do i need to do to fix this? (I cant even find a way to contact the support to get help nowadays for some reason..)

Opening several links quickly in new tabs causes significant browser-wide lag and CPU usage spike

Profile: https://share.firefox.dev/490blHh

Subject says it all, but it seems to occur with any site, anytime I try to open more than three or four tabs (ctrl-clicking links on a forum, for example) my Firefox instance grinds to a halt and starts consuming most of my CPU (Ryzen 5 3600).

I've tried turning off Firefox's various protections. I tried troubleshooting (formerly "safe") mode, and the problem isn't as bad but is still present as far as I can tell. The only extension I can think that would be making it worse is Tree Style Tab, but I don't know enough about interpreting Firefox profiles to verify.

The only reason I consider this odd is because doing the same thing in Chrome doesn't have this issue on this same device. If I open many tabs quickly, Chrome itself is still responsive. Those newly opened tabs may take a while to load and become interactive, but it doesn't affect the rest of the application. I pay my ISP for gigabit DSL, and as far as I can tell that is roughly what I get. In my case, Firefox doesn't behave this way.

Any method I open a new tab, it always takes up to 7s to load, while completely suspending my browser. This also happens in troubleshoot mode but not in incognito. Directly opening websites in a new tab doesn't trigger that bug. I don't recall when this started to happen, it might be after some new Windows update.

I have included screenshots from Firefox Profiler, both from regular window and incognito one.

The most recent update to Firefox introduced duplicate 'Manage Bookmarks' option in the bookmark drop down. Is there a way to remove the bottom one in an option that I'm not finding? The only thing I've found searching is from a few years ago talking about setting up a CSS file, which I've never done before.

Trying to stream shows on Firefox and video does not start / errors out. Philo returns with this error: Philo is having trouble streaming this content.

[Error code: pf-1.5-5bb2f]

Paramount+ Also freezes up and returns error message. As does Amazon Prime.

Adblockers disabled. Youtube is fine.

Tried refreshing Firefox / renistalling but same error. Prefer to use Firefox as default browser but having to go to Google to stream shows.

Debating rolling back a version but it was working fine the other day but could have had an update and didn't notice and now streaming is erroring out.

Suggestions? Thanks.

For some reason, Firefox just stopped working yesterday. The only way I could get it to work again was to uninstall and reinstall (the refresh option did not work). However, now I've lost all my bookmarks, passwords and customization. I don't care about the customization and losing the bookmarks is an annoyance, but I'd REALLY like to get my passwords back. The installation created a folder of Old Firefox data, but when I open the folders that I think might be helpful, like bookmarkbackups, they are empty. Is there anywhere else I can look where these might have been saved? I did not have a Mozilla account so no profile until now which I just set up in order to access the forum. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Firefox is my default browser, but it does not allow me to log in to specific websites. For example, ihg.com, when I click the sign in button nothing happens, I just have a little note at the bottom left "javascript:void(0);" Another example, dutchcrafters.com , when I click Log in with Gmail, nothing happens.

I have tried removing all the content blocking extensions (privacy badgers, ublock origin, etc.), did not fix it. I have tried a firefox refresh, did not fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with several device restarts, did not fix it.

I know this must be a firefox specific problem because microsoft edge work perfectly for both of these examples. Any other suggestions to fix this firefox issue?

I have the following settings in Settings/Preferences>General:

Files and Applications

Downloads Save all files in the following folder: Downloads Ticked Ask every time where to save a file

Applications Portable Document Format (PDF): Open in Firefox How should Firefox deal with other files? Ticked Ask whether to open or save files

On specific websites when I click on a pdf link, Firefox opens and automatically saves the file to Downloads folder without asking whether to save and where to save despite the above settings. As far as I remember, on other websites when clicking a pdf link Firefox only opens the corresponding file and doesn't save.

I found this with a internet search https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/stop-saving-pdfs-to-downloads-when-viewing-in-firefox/td-p/10225.

How can it be disabled that Firefox automatically saves PDFs?
