In Manage Data, I can see which cookies are used by which sites. If I want to sign in to a specific site automatically while still generally deleting cookies when I turn off Firefox, then I need to list all the cookies used by that site in Manage Permissions as Allow. This is easy regarding sites that use cookies all with pme common domain, since you just enter the one domain name. Today I wanted to preserve cookies from a major newspaper, but I find at least five domain names in the cookies that I have to protect in order to enable auto sign-in for that one site. My suggestion is that there be some improved method for easily 'transfering' (rather than writing down and re-keying) selected cookie domains from Manage Data to Manage Permissions, instead of having to rekey them and make errors doing that. If I want to auto sign-in to 15 sites, but keep the controls set for deleting unprotected cookies when closing Firefox, I would have to enter perhaps 75 domains by hand. An alternative might be a column in Manage Cookies whereby I could check mark a cookie, thereby transfering it to show in Manage Permissions, perhaps as defaulting to Allow for Session. Then I could review them and if desired switch each to Allow.

Stop auto refresh warn

I was trying to stop websites from reloading pages automatically so i setted: accessibility.blockautorefresh = true and browser.meta_refresh_when_inactive.disabled =true. Now many websites when loading , shows at the top of the page a warn strip: " Firefox prevented this page from automaticaly reloading " , and also there is an "allow" button. In the older Firefox versions it was a preference in about:preferences#advanced page: " warn me when websites try to redirect or relod the page " and i was kept it unticked , but now i can't find it. Is there any way to keep stopping websites from auto reloading , but not shown this annoying warn ?

Nach dem Start von Firefox öffnet sich das Fenster aber: ohne Inhalt, ohne Adresszeile, ohne Menüleiste - es ist nichts vorhanden. Nur ein weißes Rechteck. So dass nicht einmal der Reparatur-Modus von Firefox gestartet werden kann. Man kann zwar irgendwo intuitiv herumklicken, aber man kann mit dem neuen popup nichts anfangen, s. Beispiele, da beim Klick auf einen Parameter nichts kommt.

Virenprüfung (Kaspersky in der akt. Version): keine Verbesserung Firefox-Start abgesichert: dto.

Deinstallation und Neuinstallation der aktuellen Version 78.02. : gleiches Ergebnis

In Edge ist das Problem nicht vorhanden.

I listen to Pipe Dreams on Pipedreams.org. and always played on Firefox with no problems up until July 12th 2020. Now they have changed their website and digitized all the music programs and the new program just sits there with a circle spinning around the PLAY button. I can play program on Microsoft Edge with no problems.

Firefox is always being updated so assume the latest add-ons codecs, apps etc are in there but obviously not one to play this program. So while I can easily use Edge, I thought someone, smarter than me, can figure out what's going on. Thanks

I usually have 1 or 2 YouTube tabs open. At most, I'll have another extra tab. Despite me only using a few tabs, Firefox consumes ~1500 MB on average. Why is this, and how can I reduce it? Nothing taxing is happening, either. It's causing my fans to run audibly while I'm just watching a video.

There is print button on the bank site, and other websites, but all that happens when clicked is a blank page. Not a problem in other browsers.

When I tried to follow the printing problem instructions I am unable to actually view the entire Page Set Up window. (I did change the margins once and maybe I didn't reset them properly but can't see to find out.) I also tried restart in safe mode. Still can't view the top of the Page Set Up window.

I have used Firefox for several years and have been very happy with it. However, in the last few/several weeks, I am finding that when I click on a link to go to another screen, it either takes forever or does not work at all.

What steps should I take to help with this problem? I am using Firefox 78.0.2 (64Bit).
