I have a rather weird problem with firefox. I need to open websites twice to get them to work. To try and explain what I mean here is a how i currently need to use the browser

Open tab,

type in web address/search,
hit enter

tab is stuck infinitely loading ( i cant refresh, I cant type a different adress, that tab is just stuck loading) open a second tab

type in the exact same address/search
hit enter and for some reason it now loads instantly

And it isnt just new tabs its the same story to load any and all webpages say I am on a page of google search results click a link stuck infinitely loading open new tab repeat the same search click the same link, for some reason now loads instantly

Also websites that require the dumbest thing in history, captchas, they are simply unusable, doesnt matter if I use the pictures or the audio, even when I get it right it just reloads the pointless captcha box. Why a captcha is necessary sometimes just to load google.com makes less than zero sense, even if I was a bot what possible harm could I do by loading a search bar? but I digress

I am on the latest version and I do have some addons installed:

privacy badger, dark reader, ublock origin, tree style tabs, privacy settings, ghostery,dontaccept webp


but even starting firefox with add ons disabled the problem is still there.


Anyone got any ideas for this? thanks

Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

Preamble: All program updates are accepted when proposed on any of my 2 PCs, Linux or Firefox and other programs.

Situation:

  • Many multiple instances of Firefox are launched but can't be completed on my old (11 years old) tower PC (Linux based),
  • seems to saturate video card with multiple instances of screens (1 or 2 minutes at most) until it prevents other programs (eg Open office) to run
  • Tower PC works well for other programs (open office) if Firefox in not launched
  • while it works well when Firefox and other programs are launched) on my light PC ASUS (also with Linux) 3 years old.

Do I miss required minimal memory size on hard disk or on RAM, or is this an issue on Firefox, or...?

Can anyone please help and advise? Regards

Bonjour Depuis quelques jours j'ai un problème avec le menu contextuel de firefox lorsque je veux enregistrer une photo trouvée sur une page web : le menu contextuel clic droit + lettre "s" renvoie sur deux entrées du menu contextuel  : Enregistrer l'image sous... (lettre s pour racccourci) et Choisir l'image comme fond d'écran (lettre s également) voir image jointe img01. J'utilise Firefox 88.0 64bits : voir img02. Jusqu'alors clic droit + lettre s au clavier ouvrait la boîte de dialogue enregistrer l'image. Je souhaiterais supprimer ce double emploi de la lettre s ou supprimer le menu contextuel "choisir l'image comme fond d'écran" dont je ne me sert jamais. Merci par avance pour votre aide

When I started Firefox today, there was no my tabs. I tried to restore them, but nothing happened. Any backup copy doesn't work, I have 'warning message', click "Ok" and then nothing happens. So, I lost all my tabs. Please, say, why can it happens?
