Strava - WebSite - Login - FirefoxCP Web Content using up the RAM

Recently the strava web site login page started using up all the RAM (8GB in total, typically 3-4GB free) on my MAC (OS Mojave) when using Firefox (78.0.2 (64-bit).

FirefoxCP Web Content is the app using up the RAM/Resources.

I suspect this is due to all the trackers strava.com is running and I have firefox setup with 'Enhanced Tracking Protection: Always On'

Blocking Cookies - Cross site and media trackers tracking content - in all windows cryptominers fingerprinters

I always run the Facebook Container.

Note, this problem started about 10-12 days ago, before the garmin ransomware (fwiw).

Note, I don't have any issues with the strava.com/login page consuming resources when using Chrome with Privacy Badger and Adblock Plus.

This is just an FYI - since unsure if it is just a 'my machine' issue. Not ready to test in Firefox without all the enhanced protection yet...

I just made the mistake of upgrading Firefox to disable another annoyance that couldn't just simply be toggled in the prior version where it was introduced like it is now. In doing so, it removed the ability to move the Tabs below the Address Bar via userChrome.CSS. What worked previously does not work now. Unfortunately, I forgot this would happen. I feel pretty stupid for that.

How do I get the Tabs placed below the Address Bar this time around?

I spend 12+ hours a day in front of a computer and blank pages hurt my eyes. I use dark mode wherever possible.

I've changed the background color of about:blank already and it works as I expected.

However, when a request is fired to load a web page, there's a quick transition which may paint the canvas totally blank before starting rendering the requested page. Since this transition may take a couple of seconds sometimes in my environment, the screen flashes blank onto my face, really hurting my eyes used to most of things dark most of the time.

Is there a way to configure the color of this transitioning blank page, please?

Thanks a lot in advance. :-)

Great browser. But, am i just stupid? After one hour I cannot find the location in a menu bar that shows the icons for add ons. Sure I see the first seven (attached file) add ons I added, but what happened to the rest of them? OMG, and there is no help in Google on this so its probably an easy answer and I am over thinking it. I installed two add ons tonight, I see them in the add on list when I press Command, Shift A. But, there is no icon in the browser tool bar or nav bar showing those add ons. Why is this so difficult? Never was this difficult in CHROME.

Controls an icon added to the toolbar.

What's the syntax for controlling an icon added to the context-menu by an extension?

Example: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/simple-search-google-for/

(It does not have an ID in manifest.json but *I can add it*).

Thank you.

In this form, as if the "deploy" button was pressed. Please tell me what you need to add to the lines of the executable file. Or maybe there is another way.

Hi All

some pages like this one are wide enough to have a horizontal left/right scroll bar.

https://trello.com/b/3OtE8BCR/brizy-wordpress-public-roadmap

If I'm lucky, when I want scroll left or right, the cursor is on a piece of HTML where it can move when I use the left or right arrow keys. However often, the cursor isn't available or the right place.

Is there a key or key combo where I can shift the web page left or right in the FF window? I often find it difficult to use the horizontal scrollbar with the mouse.
