In my Bookmarks menu, all the separators link to "separatethis.com" .... for example, here are the properties of one of them: http://separatethis.com/#rlns4Upi38SGXXUjChLvU

When I searched Firefox "Help" to find out what is going on, there were over 2,000 queries about this but no responses were returned.

Is this a new hack, or what?

whenever i boot up my computer, firefox automatically starts atleast 9 tasks in background that end up eating half of my ram, and one of them eats an entirety of my processor. Whenever i check my task manager(i use windows 10), it shows that one particular task is taking 100% of my cpu. I have to manually stop the task or it ends up slowing down my laptop. I already have the latest version of firefox and i am having this problem for 2-3 months. What do i do?

Hello, I'm reposting this question in better topic. After loading Firefox to 87.0 Now when I click on a "contact" button from a site I get 'courrier' from Microsoft. How can I get my xxx@free.fr address (zimbra mail) instead. Help from mozilla doesn't help me! Years ago the same problem was solved with a button on the first opening of the mail box.

Hope someone can hlep with this, it has been going on for weeks now. I am a member of a survey site, and for the past few weeks, when I log onto this site to do a survey, I always get a message saying there was an error in the survey, and I am returned to the homepage. I've sent a huge amount of emails to the survey site help centre, and to my isp, and I keep getting told there is nothing wrong with me account for the survey site, or my internet connection to this site. My ISP has asked my to do all sorts of tests etc., and all come back as normal, and yet the survey site cannot find or fix the issue. I am asked to use a different browser, so I have tried all three that I might use, Firefox, Edge, and Chrome, all the latest updated ones etc., and with the non Firefox browsers I get a message saying my account is suspended (survey site account), so now I am confused and annoyed.

Can anyone help sort this out please as I am now thinking it might be an issue with Firefox? Who knows...but it is very odd that I can access all other survey sites, no issues, and yet this one site will not allow me to do any surveys.

I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

I really like my new window URL, but I only need to see it once a day. The blank page new tab is great for someone like me whose attention gets hijacked by interesting Pocket articles.

I have a link on my toolbar to a text scratchpad URL: data:text/html, <html contenteditable>

It's great for grocery lists, YouTube comments, etc. and if I really need to save the text it's no problem.

Is there a way to turn that URL into the default new tab URL?

I have all the correct privacy settings. To save the sites cookies, history, etc. I have NOT checked on the site's website to use 2 step verification. Yet EVERYDAY I am asked to do so, even a few times a day if a few hours have passed. Why? I don't know what else to do since I have contacted the website and they have told me to set my browser as it IS ALREADY SET.

Ever since I updated my firefox version the search bar will be missing random letters when I type them, or the suggestions will be missing letters. However this is only a visual bug, since pressing enter will search for what I typed. I've restarted and reinstalled but its still like this. Just wondering if anyone has a fix. See attached images.

while other browsers plays them smoothly even at 4K. I have tried disabling Hardware Acceleration, even the h264ify plugin, but both did no work, updating my video driver, the only add-ons/extensions I use are Ublock origin and enhancer for youtube and none of them seems to cause the problem on other browsers. I have attached the picture of my Pc specs as well if they might be helpful in fixing this problem

I've never encountered this problem before... I am using a new computer but have used firefox exclusively for decades.

Every time i try to read a PDF, Firefox recognizes it as a .zip file, which it clearly isn't. I can't even choose acrobat reader as an option to open the files. If i manually go to the downloads tap and click on the file there, it immediately opens as a pdf in reader. What on earth is going on?

When logging into a couple of secure sites I am blocked with the attached error message. I've seen others with the same problem but their solution, forgetting the site, has not worked for me. I've got this message when using the NFCU site, and now the IRS account site. Both sites work normally with Edge.

I just had to system-restore my PC and when I redownloaded firefox, all of my settings/toolbars/bookmarks were gone. I thought hitting "sync now" would restore them from my Firefox account and it did nothing. I've kept the same bookmarks and saved passwords through at least three machines, I don't know what I did wrong or why it isn't working now. I'm afraid that hitting "sync now" has just overwritten all of my stored data instead of restoring it as I thought it would. Please help.
