Hi dear Community Members, formerly when I opened a link in an email from my Outlook account, it opened in a Tab exactly next to it. But now it goes beyond several tabs which were already there. How can I get these links again opened in a Tab right next to it. That makes it easier to go from my email to that tab and back, I find.

Hope that I described this clear.

Thanx, Jan

The browser simply refuses to save such personal preferences anymore, up until the last update this hasn't been an issue. Before i updated youtube would remember to use dark mode and disable autoplay without fail, now i have to reset these preferences every time i open a new youtube tab. When i open a new tab on youtube the screen starts as if it were in dark mode and then smash-cuts to light mode with autoplay as soon as the video and recommended thumbnails load up. This doesn't happen on Chrome, and when i set my system preferences in the windows options menu it does default to dark mode (but i really hate the systemwide dark mode there).

I could really use some help here if anyone is able to, half of my browsing youtube is in the dead of night and i really don't need the added eye strain every time i want to watch a new video outside of my queue.

Hi, I would like to know how to control whether my add-ons should open their tabs automatically. I have alot of add-ons, and once in a while, probably after updating between two periods of time when using Firefox, add-ons would open their about pages, settings, home pages, etc. Can you please tell me how to assign what add-ons can open their pages automatically? That should save me from some lags and also a bit of time spent. Thanks!

I'm not sure how, but sometimes when closing firefox with or without a restart of the pc, the second tab of my last session dissapeared. The first tab is my mail and stays, but the second tab is sometimes missing. If I close now the browser and start the browser again, the second tab is still there, but today I didn't restart the pc but firefox was closed for a while, I am missing the second tab. The second tab I have now, was the third tab before.

I'm running Windows 10 (Version 2004) and firefox 83.0 (64-bit) and have 157tabs open at the moment.

Been watching streams for a while. Twitch.TV works perfectly well, Piczel.TV is alright too. I do however have constant issues with any kind of live stream when using Picarto.TV- It seems like the stream just doesn't want to load for long- it will work for a little but and then start an endless buffering cycle which can only be broken by refreshing the entire website, rinse and repeat. I tried cleaning my cookies once which didn't help. Using Firefox's installer to run a "fix" didn't help either, and a fresh install *did* work, but only for a little bit before it started happening again. The option in Picarto to switch the HLS player tech to mp4 doesn't work. Any advice?

When I click on some email links usually in emails from retail businesses they will not open correctly in Firefox. However, if I copy and paste the URL into Chrome or Edge, they open just fine.

For example, this marketing URL from Best Buy, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__click.emailinfo2.bestbuy.com_-3Fqs-3D2c6fa7baf73a68394f3ef56f26a5ad4a91bf0d9f686f2b0ed29326c0b3102d71d175b2209e2d83ca9eb0a1c1c7f163459f482c262ab2f4b26e58d62e7e4ef834&d=DwMDaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=9BjfmubiD4w2fwyJ_mt0mXwRdrhPtBnR3BAlDr2MwcQ&m=xvBFPqHCMmKNSkl4SAZiIQPLiCSPMVea48hGa-JthqE&s=kL922_I7zxhJzD_n1NTyMLI41WY789i3-OLoyhAoSLE&e=

results in the the Best Buy message, "We’re sorry, something went wrong. You can use our search bar or pick a category below. If you typed in a URL, check it for errors."

However, the link works just fine in Chrome and Edge. This problem seems to have surfaced about a month ago. Is there some Firefox setting that I'm overlooking that is causing this?

Thanks

Hi, I recently updated to FF 83.0 and if I open Youtube then play a video my RAM usage sits around 900mb.

If I minimize Firefox or open a new tab, the tab with YouTube playing will start climbing in RAM usage. It will go up to 7.5 GB RAM used and it won't free it up.

I downgraded to FF 82.0.2 and it goes away with same addons. It will sit around the 900mb in this version like it always used to. This only started with the release of FF 83.0

I want to use the new FF version for security, but not being able to play any YouTube videos is bad.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
