Before I updated my system (Mac), Firefox used to type -- for 9s and a few other keys would type incorrectly. The update fixed that, or so I thought. I just copied some text and pasted it into a site I'm using in Firefox and the x came in as ". I can't get it to type x. Although, I can here for some reason. So confused.

My PC often crashes. It looks like the issue comes from RAM exhaustion.

Example extracted from system logs: Source: Resource-Exhaustion-Detector Event ID: 2004 Windows a diagnostiqué avec succès une insuffisance en mémoire virtuelle. La plus grande consommation de mémoire virtuelle s’est répartie entre les programmes suivants : firefox.exe (13952) avec 416788480 octets, firefox.exe (6456) avec 248070144 octets et firefox.exe (11376) avec 243785728 octets.

I have reduced the parameter "Nombre maximum de processus de contenu" from 8 (default) to 6 -> my PC still crashes with the same error.

I have tried deactivating modules, safe mode, uninstall, reinstall... -> quite similar

How can I check and improve firefox RAM usage?

As the image shows, this webpage has a white "border" on the left and top of the content area. The page was generated by Excel. I was working on it when the "mouse" grabbed it and dragged it. After that the white borders were there and nothing I do gets rid of it. There is another Excel generated webpage that now also shows the same. These are the only pages it happens with, and neither did it before the content of the one got dragged. What can I do to correct this?

Running a 2019 Macbook Pro on Catalina 10.15.4. I take decent care of it in terms of closing applications not in use frequently, charging when battery hits 15%, and restarting it at least once a week. I had to change my default browser to Chrome throughout the schoolyear since Duo dual authentication did not work properly with Firefox. Now that I have graduated, I wanted to jump back to Firefox and updated to 76.0.1. Unfortunately, I cannot sign into any Google accounts.

I am presented with an option to select a Google account, or select add/remove additional GMail accounts, but all UI features are nonresponsive. The "next" button does nothing, selecting add or remove accounts does nothing. I have since restarted my computer, cleared all data and cache from Firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and cannot seem to figure out what is the problem here.

When I want to see the passwords Firefox has stored I have to log in with my account. I made an account with the email adress I normally use (address 1). But that is not the account / email address that I have to fill when I want to see the password. It is a MS email address I had to make for MS but never use (address 2). I cannot change or remove that address (2) as it does not show when I go to Account settings. Then just the account with the address 1 shows. Any tip how to deal with that?

I'm concerned about the security/privacy aspect of Firefox saving username/passwords for web applications.

  • Where does Firefox save these username/passwords?
  • Are these username/passwords encrypted? How are the username/passwords encrypted?
  • Who has access to the passwords saved?
  • How long are these passwords stored?
  • Do these get cleared when the browser gets uninstalled?

A 74 year old non-geek client for personal usage, I switched recently to Firefox as a refuge from ridiculous problems that slowed my pc down. Always present, the relentless agitated veiled threats from Microsoft Edge, and Chrome. Both these two latter browsers were tried with disastrous results. Forcing the use of ME, is refused totally. After a couple of strokes inside the cranium, this one is in a weakened position to handle complications and complexities of market share, plus the 'ever-creepy' move to control content, based on an ultra-Conservative US view of life. As a Canadian, born and raised in a sovereign state, I am appalled by such an ugly and pervasive view. I envision a means to take advantage of the considerable skills of Mozilla to simplify and permit this active writer to enjoy the purely informational, educational and entertainment values in life. Please consider how to help.

Every time I tried to login using my old stored P/W, I got something went wrong message. When I changed my P/W, I answered all, including my age, got the six digit code, entered it where required, changed my P/W, verified it, tried to login to my Firefox account again only to get the same message. All I want to do is to try and use the new "SEND" feature in the update. I have over the years had many problems with Firefox updates when trying out new enhanced features to the point I have nearly given up on it, using it for primary "legacy" email.
