I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Now, this might have been resolved already or there is a easy solution and I just dont know. But, everytime I use my Laptop in Tablet Mode the OSK will appear for a second upon hitting a Box in which Text can be written. However, it will close after a second.

I already tried turning off ".osk.detect_physical_keyboard" and on again. it didnt change Anything. Nor did changing Settings in the WIndos Settings itself.

can anyone help me with this Issue? It is really annoying and doesnt make Firefox a good option as my standard browser.

A few days ago Microsoft Print to PDF stopped working properly in Firefox 87.0 (64 bit) running in Windows 10. Microsoft Print to PDF functions properly in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Excel/Word/Outlook, etc.

As attached, in Firefox after pressing CTL-P (or select File>Print) the print preview window is displayed. When I click Print a PDF file is created. When I open that file I receive the attached error message advising that the file cannot be opened, etc.

I have executed many of the recommended solutions; none of resolved the issue. I refreshed Firefox; that did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folder in APPDATA rebooted and reinstalled Firefox; that did not resolve the issue.

No recent software installations or upgrades, etc.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations, Bill

Ok. So i have never ever used MS Edge for logging into FireFox and Mozilla accounts. But low and behold, MSEdge now has these Login and PW's for these accounts.

I had brought up this observation, in the recent past, regarding how MSEdge aggregated all my logins and pw's from FireFox. And the response was for me to use a Master Password.

But this isnt the solution or the issue at hand.

The concern is why does Edge believe it is entitled to aggregate my FireFox PW's? And when does it do so? And how does it tap into the encrypted FF files? Yet, Edge has not aggregated the bookmarks in FF.

Something is not right nor ethical.

Interestingly, perhaps FireFox users that lose their logins and passwords in FireFox browser can tap into MSEdge to restore them? Seems like a reasonable solution.

Hi, Since we got a new printer at our workshop we have had problems with printer settings reset on both our label printer and our Normal printer.

We have set printer setting on windows and made sure they are correct.

Firefox changes our label printer settings back from lenght 50 to 296,9 and back to portrait. And when we use our label printer our normal printer changes back from landskape to potrait and from A4 to Letter. This problem started when we got a new printer, worked fine with our old printer.

Items in my Bookmarks toolbar (and the overflow bookmarks list) keep rearranging themselves. I put them back in order, then every time I open Firefox, they rearrange again. I've read through and tried everything suggested in the discussions and articles except the refresh, with I'd prefer not to do if it's not absolutely necessary. Nothing else suggested has worked. Any help will be appreciated. I believe this started after the last Firefox update. This is getting frustrating to the point I'm ready to stop using Firefox altogether. Thank you!

Hello,

This is my version of a Firefox usability review for 2021.

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro, on new hardware, and run identical add-ons and extensions in both Firefox and Chrome most recent versions (auto-update).

For the last few years about 10% of all websites I visit weekly have some kind of functionality that does not work in Firefox, but does work in Chrome. This forces users (at least me) in to the arms of another browser, because Chrome *always* works.

Today, I couldn't lookup a license key on Kaspersky's website due to a 'Cross-Origin Request Blocked:' error. Result was; key not found. Switching to Chrome, I had my key in seconds. This kind of problem happens A LOT.

I get frustrated because either the security level of Firefox is insanely high and unforgiving, or Chrome is completely unsafe. But we know that's not true either. Why am I safe in Chrome, but not in Firefox when viewing the exact same web pages? My anti-virus isn't enough?

As websites lean more and more heavily on scripts, Firefox becomes more and more unusable for me.

To be clear, I am a network admin who has been experiencing these security SNAFU's in Firefox that require switching to Chrome in order to compete registration, fill out some forms, or access some kind of AJAX type info or CDN files, that is extremely frustrating when you don't want to use Google's spy tool, Chrome.

I DO appreciate the Firefox browser, and its developers. This is just an FYI - no reply needed.

After one of the last FF updates, I noticed that I no longer needed to enter my Primary (Master) password to sync or access my logins or site passwords. After a bit of checking, I found that in FF/Tools/Options/Privacy & Security... My "Use Primary Password" box was unchecked! Was I hacked? I use full-time Malwarebytes (licensed) along with Win10 Security (which are suppose to play nice together; and have for years). I never received any indication of an issue from either app. Multiple (full) scans came back clean.

Or was this an inadvertent change caused by one of the later FF updates?

Btw, I use the same W10 and FF on several other machines, with virtually the same setup; none of which experienced this issue.

Hi Everyone

I'm using the latest FF 87.0 64bit in Win 10 Home. I launched FF to a blank tab only, and see the following messages in the console listed below, too advance for me to understand. Also when I add uBlock Origin, it blocks the telemetry data, see the errors below also. Even if I allow access to uBlock, it'll still block telemetry data. For the sake of security, I've changed my browser signature info to 1234 in all the strings below.

What do they mean? Do I need to reset my FF?

THANKS!
