Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.

This is not a big issue but I have to double touch the “X” to close Firefox on my touch screen Dell XPS 13. If I use the cursor and click on the “X” Firefox closes fine. Chrome, Edge, etc. close with a single touch so this appears to be unique to Firefox. I opened Firefox in safe mode but it still required a double touch. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple times. I have tried this on a similar laptop with the same results (i.e., required a double touch). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Firefox is causing 100% disk utilization on Windows 10 Pro PC

Beginning about a month ago, I started noticing that Firefox was causing disk utilization on my Windows 10 Pro PC to go up to 100 % disk utilization and stay there for 2 or 3 minutes. My PC was timing out on other applications. Eventually it would return to normal levels but as I'd continue to use it and open additional tabs and windows of Firefox, the problem would repeat and get worse.

As time went on, I started getting to periods where the PC would become completely unresponsive and the disk utilization would to to 100% and stay there for 10+ minutes. I'd be forced to do a shutdown/restart but that might take as long as 15 minutes to shutdown.

Firefox (64 bit) v107.0 is what's currently installed on my system. My PC is a Dell Precision desktop with 16 GB of memory and a 1 TB WD Blue SSD for the C: drive.

I did try the Firefox refresh but that had no effect.

I started using Chrome and do not have any disk usage issues with it. I've also used MS Edge as well and disk utilization stays at normal levels, even with 10 or more tabs or windows open simultaneously.

I searched online and have seen complaints about Firefox causing this problem but all those are from 3+ years ago. Nothing recent. One fix suggested uninstalling the 64 bit version and going with the 32 bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I am using the latest version of Firefox with Mojave on a Mac.

Lately I have experienced slowness despite the fact that I didn't add any software and I have Norton checking for viruses. Recently I got a message "Your system has run out of application memory" when I had 5 tabs open in Firefox. I checked Activity Monitor and it showed Firefox using 1.16 GB. 7 other apps were open, the next one with the highest memory usage was Mail (465 MB). Activity Monitor showed 30 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content entries.

I attached a screen capture showing what Firefox was using in one of these instances. Is this "normal" with 5 tabs open?

I closed the open tabs and quit Firefox. Memory usage by Firefox went down, but after a short time the problem happened again.

A search on the internet showed lots of similar complaints about FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content. Is this a known bug? Any way to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

Yesterday had no issues accessing https://ebay.com. Shutdown overnight. This morning get the error message "Please contact your administrator with the error code: 0.3b2c2d17.1669662371.5cf7b1c1" There is no administrator as this is a Windows 10 home computer. I have cleared the browser of any entry "ebay" but it did nothing to return connections. No other url seems to be effected. Used EDGE and connected without issue. Also used a tablet and had n issue. Any suggestion to resolve the issue would be appreciated.

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

I am using Mozilla Firefox 64-bit with version 107.0 on Windows 10 21H2. I connect very often to HTTPS websites without a valid certificate. Often with certificates issued by themselves. Before it was always enough to say "I trust this website" once. Now the question comes again and again, whenever I connect. What could be the cause of this?

FireFox latest ver, download window resize to smaller fail - now 1/4-ish screen

FireFox: 107.0 (64 bit) Mozilla FireFox for Linux Mint OS: Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon

Issue: On this FireFox latest version, the download window cannot be resized to smaller than (roughly) 1/4 of entire screen. (screen-shot attached.)

Attempted: Mouse left-click grab of all corners & sides to drag window smaller - failed!

Note: Download window can be resized *bigger*, showing this window has now been coded with a very large minimum size that is almost 1/4 of full screen

- this was not the case in previous versions.

Micro-annoyances add up, people switch to Chrome (sorry to use the "C" word!)

greetings,

I use foundryvtt through a Firefox port. for awhile now, i get a timeout error on some, but not all, songs in all Playlists from songs in the same File Folders.

on the screen, the timestamp reads 00:00 and hangs. It appeared to be the same songs, so i created another Playlist with different music on my PC and problem persists. I do not get this problem when i play music through the Foundryvtt app.

any help would be much appreciated.

Today when I go to my history sidebar in time and date mode, I get four dates: Today, Yesterday, Last 7 days, and This month, but there is no arrow before each selection and I can't open any of them.

The only category that works in sidebar history is the Last Opened category.

How can I restore the link to these dates?

See included screencap.
