After the most recent update to 70.0.1, I no longer see the choice "Warn when closing multiple tabs" in Options. I've searched online and no one else seems to have mentioned this. Has this feature been removed, and if so is it gone for good or might it come back?

Unable to open Word and Excel documents from within SharePoint. This has never been an issue but now the error message is shown. "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (ms-word) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context." The documents should either open in the browser or trigger the desktop app. Installing older versions hasn't fixed this.

Looking for solutions, thanks

I dont know why but after updated into firefox 70 with Enhanced Tracking Protection, CPU always 50-60 when i'm watching movies and Memory always go up to 8-12GB after several hours.

Most active addons is NoScript > Tampermonkey > Tabshunter > Stylus, when i'm checking with about:perf , i saw NoScript using so much Memory, so maybe it's Addon memory leaking ?

Sometime when i'm checking Task Manager (Ctrl Alt Del) Disk is 50-80MB/s

Firefox is already running but not responding - can't kill the process with Task Manager/Taskkill

Since the last update to Firefox I am getting a 'Firefox is already running but not responding error message'. This is happening on my Win10 machine - my Win7 box is not having any issues since the update.

I have followed the advice of creating new profiles, checking for locked profiles (and being unable to remove the lock?). I have completely removed Firefox from my system - uninstalled via control panel, deleted all folders in Program Files and Users etc, removed temp files and edited the registry to completely remove any Mozilla/Firefox entries. Completely clean install - as far as I can tell - but the problem re-appears as soon as Firefox is reinstalled. I've tried all this in WIn10 safe mode as well but still no joy.

The issue seems to be that there is a process running that cannot be terminated but I'm unable to kill the single remaining Firefox.exe process listed in task manager. When I try 'taskkilll /IM firefox.exe /F' from the command prompt I get an error that the process can't be killed as an instance of it does not exist. If I try 'taskkill /IM firefox.exe /T /F' it advises that a child process is keeping the main process alive - explorer.exe. Terminating explorer.exe does not free up the firefox.exe process for termination (same error of the instance not existing). The only way to clear the process is to reboot my system, Firefox will then start ok but when closed the issue will occur again.

I'm on my 4th clean install and the issue persists, so any help or advice beyond what I've tried would be appreciated.

Every now and then, a Bookmark folder disappears in Firefox on a computer using the latest version of Windows 10! I have reported this problem but it still is occurring. I have important folders that I do NOT want to disappear. I finally saw saw one disappear (normally I don;t see it happen). I saw it disappear and hit Ctrl +Z and it reappeared briefly and then it disappeared for good. I took some time trying to find it but could not in an Exported Bookmarks file.

I am on a metered connection. Updates chew up my data, and I want to CHOOSE when to use that data for updates. There is no toggle in the configuration screen that would allow me to turn off automatic updates, and setting the preference via about:config hasn't worked. I am very irritated by this. It's my computer, it's my browser, and I don't like being forced to do what someone else has decided I should do just because they thought it would be a good idea. If I can't find a way to turn off auto updates then I'll abandon Firefox for something more user-friendly.
