Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

I’m a regular Firefox user on my PC&iOS&Android devices. Today I had a problem which I had before but I did not have time to write/report this.

I’m having problems downloading only on “Google Drive”

I could not download any files today in an urgent situation but you will be surprised when I tell you how did I download the file that I need? Even I was using IDM addon to catch downloads on Firefox still I could not download but problem was Google’s itself. I successfully downloaded the file that I need by using “Chrome” Chrome works perfect when you use it with Google’s own products (MyActivity, AccountsGoogle, Drive, YouTube etc.). The thing I want to say is Google is forcing users to use Chrome. Why did I fail while downloding on Drive while using Firefox? A question to Google. Thanks.

Hey guys,

after the latest firefox update I can't open attachments coming from lotus notes (LN), without saving them to computer. The reason is that regardless of the document attached (.doc, .xls, .ppt, etc.) every time I try to open such file the pop-up goes like and the bold line is preventing me to open them directly:

"You have chosen to open: xyz.pptx which is: XLSX file from: LN"

Any idea how to resolve?

Thx

Firefox huge memory consumption - who's lying ?

I try to keep always open some tabs in Firefox,, probably already too many (it's not unusual to have 25-30 tabs opened, each having it's internet page). I'm using Firefox up-to-date on Windows 10 Home already at version 20H2.

So, quite quickly Task Manager comes to report that Firefox takes 1400-1600 of RAM (out of the laptop's total of 6 GB). At the same time, Firefox's internal Task manager pretends that memory taken by all tabs does not sum up more than cca 650 MB !!! This is concur with about:memory tab if I try that too.

Here's a capture taken with Snip&Sketch having both Firefox's tab with it's internal task manager, + Windows's Task manager over it (attached).


I feel like I'm cheated here, but ... who is most closer lay blame on ? Who is more likely to lie in this case ?0 Firefox or Task Manager ?

I tend to believe it's Firefox, but I'm willing to have other opinions. Are there extra memory taken by Firefox that is not reported in the about:memory tab, or in it's internal task manager ? (I'm onto this, I believe that there is something that is not reported, but so far have not a shred of evidence on this).

This is exactly why on my computer at work (on an OpenSUSE install) I gave up on Firefox and turned to Chrome, because on this one I can trust the internal task manager, and it does not crush my Linux box like Firefox eventually have done with it's crazy memory consumption and/or CPU huge load from time to time. I am still using Firefox on the home Windows 10 laptop because I share it with my wife, and decided she is to use Chrome, and myself Firefox:-)

For a while now, I have not been able to save multiple images at once from the page info screen. To be specific, everything loads in just fine, but when I go to choose a folder, any folder as a save destination, nothing happens.... Now error or download, nothing. I tried hard resetting my PC to see if that was the problem but it's not.

Is there a way to fix this without add-ons or extensions???

My attached PDF has multiple check boxes with same name and different value.

It works correctly when opened using Adobe reader or chrome etc.. and only shows 1 checkbox B checked correctly.

If I open the same PDF using open with > Firefox then it incorrectly shows all checkboxs checked instead of only B.

It showed correctly in 64.0 (64 bit) firefox browser version's built in PDF viewer and it seems have issue in latest 84.0.2 (64 bit) firefox browser version's built in PDF viewer.

Is it a known issue ? Are we planning to fix it ?

Hi all, I usually have about 5 windows open, just regular websites. Suddenly my fan goes beserk and I look at the processes where on one firefox.exe the CPU is at 40-50 and everything slows to a crawl. When I press end process, it shuts down, the fan stops and browser speed goes back to normal. What is running in the background and how do I stop it?

Thank you

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

I updated to Firefox 84 on my macOS Catalina 10.15.7 system. At the end of the update process to Firefox 84, when Firefox restarted, a pop-up appeared that some files where suspected to be ransomware. I choose some "quarantine" button, but then the restart stopped and macOS showed a notification "The program "Firefox.app" cannot be opened" (My translation from german).

This message appears if I try to start Firefox from Finder or from Dock. Launching Firefox from the Profile Manager (via Terminal) works. Firefox is executed with my profile.

The following actions I took were not helpful: - Re-installing the Firefox-App and my profile from a Time Machine backup - Un-installing and re-installing Firefox from the Mozilla site. - Starting Firefox with a freshly created profile - Re-installing Catalina from macOS recovery mode

In the system preferences' security tab Firefox is not considered as beeing harmful.

I'd be very grateful for some hints where to look for further actions. Thanks, Ingo

Hi, I have used Firefox for many, many years and never had an issue till now. And it is only on Facebook., Version 84.0.2 and the one before this one whenever i use facebook and start playing any videos it slows down and lags. I try the same in Chrome and no issue. What did Firefox do just recently to Facebook's website or maybe their security or? Not sure but it is almost making me leave for Chrome.

Firefox slow to load, 20-30 seconds. Appears is opening more than one instance with a single click. When it does load it sometimes comes up with the last page I had open even tough I closed it out properly. Sometimes get error msg that must close out 2nd Firefox before can start Firefox but saying yes results in the current open window closing. This started yesterday and the latest version of Firefox was automatically installed yesterday? Window 7. Cleared cash. Disabled all add on's etc. No help. Close out Firefox and Task Mngr show no Firefox running. Start Firefox and Task mngr shows four/five Firefox running. This started yesterday and the latest version of Firefox was automatically updated yesterday. Any ideas.
