System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

I need to download a certificate from a device in my networt called secunet Konnektor

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor

on the manual it's written how to do it.

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor#c1607

I suggest to find a manual somewhere in the first link or in google:

chapter 7.4.3

go to chrome (same with edge)

click on the lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

somehow click on the button where you can open a small windows called "certificate".

The "General" tab shows informations about the certificate.

Click on the tab "Details" and click on "Copy file".

The certificate-assitent opens and after clicking on next, you choose DER-coded-binary X.509 (.CER)

Save the file somewhere where you can find it.

I can't do this on firefox

On firefox I can find a lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

when i click on it and then on something else, i can then click on more informations.

a windows opens called "page informations"

under "security" i click on "view certificates" and a new tabs opens called "certificate for konnektor".

but there is no possibilty to download a cer-file. only a pem file and it doesn't really help me.

I'm a recent convert from Chrome after decades (used to use Firefox waaaaaay back in the day) so I've become quite accustomed to how things worked in Chrome. I've found most of the workarounds to get it back to what I'm used to but one has stumped me and I've spent too many hours searching and reading so I'm hoping someone here can help... (I just discovered part of the problem while taking screenshots, I think it's the extension)

In Chrome, when in Gmail and clicking the download button to download an attachment, it would bring up the "save as" but in Firefox, while it will do that now for common things like jpg etc, I can't get it to do it for a .ds2 or .dss extension which are my most common downloads.

I see the Applications box in Settings/General but it doesn't show .ds2 or .dss and when I search, nothing. How do I add these two extensions so that when I try to download, it gives me the option to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option? Thank you!!

When I try to go to getpocket/my list nothing happens. Works fine on Opera. When I try to access my AOL account for the first time after opening the browser, I usually initially get a message that AOL has misdirected, to "try again." No problem accessing AOL on Opera, so I don't think it's my computer.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Some sites colors are inverted or glitched. I've noticed when I've used roblox that the description of the game isn't there and that the site is elongated and it's just a long, empty space until I get to the bottom. Sites like steam (More specifically the workshop) the background is the light for some reason but the text stays white and it's a struggle to see.

How do I fix this? I've tried changing between light and dark mode.

Errormsg: "Server not found". "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at tinyurl.com.".

I have experienced this since a few months. I read some articles that this was implemented to enhance the security, but how can I fix it?

HI, All of a sudden my camera wouldn't load on a site I use frequently--the teletherapy platform for Psychology Today. (I'm a psychotherapist). I tried everything to fix it, but nothing worked. I finally had the idea to switch browsers, and behold! it worked! So there is something about Firefox that suddenly disabled the video function for this particular site. The camera light is on, but the image does not load. It is not a problem with another video-conferencing platform I use (Webex) via Firefox, just a problem with Psychology Today. Please advise. I want to keep using Firefox for Pso Today, too, if possible.

I use AOL e-mail, and this opens perfectly well with Firefox. Now, in order to save an e-mail to a folder on my PC I have to save it as an html document to be opened by my browser, i.e. Firefox. For a while now when I try to open any saved e-mail it will open for a few seconds and then it is covered by a Blerk 5 error notice. The following information accompanies it: ERR1800 Report ID: 0ca992e91cc1f7c63-20211015-124427. I would greatly appreciate a fix for this problem. I assume all the data are there safely saved because I can read the e-mails even if only for a few seconds. I need the fix to allow me to open all my old saved e-mails. Thank you.

In Settings > Search > Search Shortcuts, the help text currently reads "Choose the alternative search engines that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter a keyword."

This seems to imply that entering keywords into the search bar will bring up alternative search engines. However, this is not the case; only the address bar responds to Search Shortcut keywords, while entering keywords into the search bar will pass the entire string (including keyword) to whichever your default search engine was.

Either the wording has to be modified to clarify that search engine keywords only work when typed into the address bar, or search keyword functionality has to be enabled on the search bar.

I am having a serious problem with inputting information into web page interfaces such as GMail and online forms.

I am seriously dyslexic, so, I have to depend on tools such as copy/paste and keyboard macros in my quest to avoid typos and incorrect information and amounts.

The best example that I have is using GMail's Web interface to compose and respond to emails where the problem has increased to the point where it happens on almost every input session. For example, if I use a keyboard macro to type my name "Beverly" it almost always gets scrambled to something like "Byeverl"

This happens on some, but not all web input pages... another example, is trying to enter a number into a field that simply does not work if I paste. Sometime back, I went so far to create an AutoHotKey macro that put's a delay between each character that is in the copy/paste buffer. That seemed to work for a while, but has since stopped working apparently because the interface now detects that I left the input field in order to trigger the keyboard macro.

Starting a few months ago, when I click on a link in a web page that would cause a PDF to be displayed, I get the dialog box asking me where I want to save the file. When I go into settings and change the way Firefox deals with PDF files, having it use Adobe Acrobat DC instead, the problem will be temporarily solved, but it returns shortly. (The particular setting which I have to continually reset is under the Settings/Applications and involves "content type" "Portable Document Format (PDF)(application/pdf)"

How can I make it so that I don't have to continually instruct Firefox to open rather than save PDF files?
