Hi I mean one of these (image below) ? The goal is to prevent reloading the tabs among ones that were openned in a previous session and I don't need anymore (and by the way FF won't update my history as not needed) - Even if I'd didn't use "Startup/Restore last session", this would be a great feature to be able to close with right-click any tabs whose names in shown in the drop list when so many tabs are openned that the last ones can't fit in the width of the window (actually tabs "toolbar"). Thanks you for this great browser. I asked this 2 years ago if there's a way.

For over 24 hours I've been unable to load Firefox, even after I atempted to load the latest version to my Windows XP-equipped computer tower. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Firstly, I wish I would have been directed firstly to this composition box and not have to go through the unhelpful one-sentence route and rigamarole that brought me here.

Anyway, for over 24 hours now I've been unable to bring up Firefox onto my Windows XP-equipped computer, instead always receiving your Crash Reporter's notice that there was a problem, which also occurred when I went to the Mozilla homepage and tried downloading the latest version of Firefox after having sen the notice that I didn't have-and apparently still don't have-its latest iteration. This is especially urgent since I use your browser to access Facebook, where I've business correspondence to answer.

Furthermore, it was none too fun to wade through the several toll-free telephone numbers I found supposedly offering Mozilla technical support and running into nothing but dead ends and/or L O N G wait times by calling each. Perhaps you could do something to police that?

Since I'm here, I'm also curious as how to 1)transfer my Firefox bookmarks/favorites file to the Pale Moon browser, and 2)transfer that same file to a newly-refurbished Windows 10-equipped computer tower.

I look forward to and thank you for your prompt, helpful reply.


Most Sincerely,

Mr. Jamie Lee Rake

Why FF sometimes takes up to 50% of CPU on closing?

To clarify, I don't have any issue on start-up or during web surfing. Only when I close the browser, especially after a long surfing session, I see that it's taking up to 50% of CPU for at least 30-60 seconds! Lately I also get the message "FF has crashed", which is ok since I'm exiting the browser anyway. What is FF doing at closing? What INFO is it saving?

Yes, my system is outdated, but it's working ok for me, for now at least.

I regularly experience poor performance - slow responses, occasional "not responding" messages, and so on.

Doesn't appear to be a system performance/resource issue.

Before I start investigating, I wanted to find out if I'm to blame for the way I use Firefox, which may be atypical. I often have several Firefox windows open, each with several tabs. Right now, the count is 8 windows with a total of 59 tabs.

Is this a "Well what do you expect? Bound to cause problems" scenario? Are there internal Firefox resources likely to be oversubscribed? Are they tunable?

Or is it the case that as long as the system is not showing any resource issues this ought to be fine, so the problem is not due to the number of tabs/windows open?

This is so annoying. I've read all the threads about how to get firefox to stop asking me to change my search provider. I want to use Google, period. Under these settings, I have unchecked all except for google. I have unchecked the box that says "provide search suggestions". It doesn't work. I don't have any toolbars installed. Now every time I enter something in the google search bar, firefox is wasting my time and I have to double enter my search criteria. There is only one search engine that matters: google. If you uncheck all the other search engines, and especially uncheck "provide search suggestions" and there is no other toolbars interfering with that, why does firefox ignore my settings? I have blinders on. Google, and only google. I even tried going to the about:config and doing the false setting for the ask option, but that does not work. I have booted in safe mode, and that does not work. I also don't want to disable my add ons. This is annoying. I wished they still provided support for Chrome, or else I would be using that. I just don't understand why Google doesn't understand what I am telling it NOT to do. I am beginning to hate firefox. Again. (I have tried all the latest versions of firefox, and they all just cannot accept what I am commanding it to do, like, it's saying, "Are you SURE you want to use only Google?" So maddening. arrrrrgh......

It was not supposed to do this. All my logins are wiped too. What is the problem, and how do I fix it? It has also removed the menu bar at the top of the screen. I refreshed because FF was hanging badly, and this was promised to fix it, but not to delete everything. It seems to have switched to ESR 'update channel' Windows FF ESR 38.2.1
