I've been trying for some time to determine why my main Firefox profile, the profile I use most of the time, has a lot of trouble when I use Google Street View. The Street View screen essentially freezes when I try and use it. But, taking a tip from Firefox help I opened up a new profile in a new browser. When doing so, the existing Google Street View problem disappeared completely in the new browser. I call my new profile in the new browser my second Firefox browser to use. My question is, can someone explain why the problem disappears in my second Firefox browser? Looking at the options window when I open the Firefox menu, I see a few differences between the two browsers. The big difference is the second browser has much less applications in it. It has 7 applications where as my first browser has 21 applications. Is this the possible reason why the second browser doesn't have the problem that my first browser does? If so, how can I delete some of the applications in the first browser to see if that is the problem? I'm trying NOT to refresh my first Firefox browser as refreshing Firefox caused much problems for me in the past. And, it seems some Firefox aficionado's do say use caution when using a refresh. So, can someone please explain why the one browser, the new second browser, is void of the problem that plaques my first or original Firefox browser? Thank you. Post a Reply

I sought without answer to see how to PREVENT restoring previous sessions, freezing my computer because FF did not clear previous sessions, internet access freezing when social media sites weren't cleared, as they used to be. And then, reading the solution on, how to access restoresession options, I come upon about:config and search browser.session I see the problem. Instead of setting options to clear previous history, FF now has uncountable options which - hide browsers I've deletes, like Bing - maintain restoring sessions up to 5, 10, 32 times, even though I've set the option to never - keep data I wanted deleted, in Top sites, in pocket, in other options - set Google as the default translator even though I've chosen not to use it I am seriously disappointed in Firefox and Mozilla. I have used it since I found it one- two ? decades ago because it WASN'T wired into the top-heavy, data-excessive, intrusive-spying behemoths of Google and Microsoft. Did Google buy you out, or something? I do notice that the wonderful creative-commons data options have been swallowed up by those icons of not-for-profit and community sharing, google-android, every for-profit phone companies (ATT, Verizon,etc.) How sad and ironic. I found my solution was, select 0 for many, many browser.?? options and deleting the history I found in various switches. Posting this to share my disillusion.
