Todays Update Has Made My Hidden City Game On Facebook Painfully Slow

Today 5/20/2018, I opened Firefox and it was automatically updated. After the update I used my bookmark for Hidden City on Facebook (it's not the Gameroom app) and while the app was loading twice I got the yellow banner message that a webpage is slowing down my browser. I have gotten that message before and I always just wait instead of clicking Wait or Stop and the message goes away the app continues loading. After the loading screen the game was unbearably slow. My cursor moved around the screen fine but everything in the game moved slow. The CPU usage was 60-64 and the Memory usage was 63-71 and 4 firefox processes were running. When I first used the FireFox Quantum browser to play Hidden City was slow and I followed help page to fix it, but this recent update seems to have undone what I tweaked. The current version of the browser I see in the about FireFox is 60.0.1 (64 bit). Can someone help me tweak the browser so I can play game Hidden City? And I would like to also play my Secret Society game (it's the same type of game as Hidden City) in this browser but I haven't because I was concerned both games would be to much data for the browser to hold and would cause it to slow down. Is there a way I can store the data for both games so it doesn't effect the browsers performance and protect the data from being accidentally deleted when I clean out the browsers history? Also, Firefox is not my default browser, I only use it to play Hidden City because Internet Explorer can't be used to play it. Also I already have Adobe Flash on my computer but I can't use it in Firefox, when I tried to check out Secret Society there was a message saying I need to download flash player. How do I enable Flash Player so I can play Secret Society? I tried following the article I found in help but I don't see the flash player in my add ons, and the other add-ons I have is UBlock and it's enabled, and No Script which I just added today to see if it would help but I disabled it because it blocked java script and Hidden City won't work without it. If you need more information just let me know and I will try my best to supply it. Thank you for your time.

When I press CTR +SHIFT+B, I don't see any of my bookmarks or anything to left or right, its all white I can see the top headings though.

When I click Bookmarks (up top next to History, and Tools) I can see all my bookmarks, there are quite a lot. The problem happened after I had to power off at the electrical outlet and I didn't shut down Windows 8.1, and Firefox, because my computer had stalled overnight.

I need to see my bookmarks again when I press CTR + Shift +B

In options I have homepage and new windows set to custom urls. The new tab option doesn't have an option for custom url but I'm opening a new window so it shouldn't follow the new tab setting. I never open tabs, just windows.

Why does every update have to cause a problem with my settings? I leave updates as long as I possibly can as they always cause a problem.

I run Firefox version 28 on a 64-bit Lenovo G700 laptop running Windows 8.1. I am trying to view videos on news sites. Most of them (ABCNews, CNN, FOXNews, NBCNews) give me no trouble, but two of them--CBSNews and PBS--won't let me view videos. (In IE11 and Chrome, PBS works, but CBS doesn't.) On PBS, I get an error message of "Plug-in file missing". On CBSNews, all I get is a black placeholder (which doesn't respond to either left- or right-clicking) where the video is to play; sometimes, I don't even get that, just white space. I've updated my plug-ins, reinstalled Shockwave Flash several times, and I've gone through my plug-ins turning them on and off, testing them as recommended; I couldn't find any plug-in that was causing trouble. All I know is that PBS uses a "JW" program to put its videos out. I've emailed CBS tech support to see if they could give me some guidance; all they do is recommend Chrome, which (as I mentioned above) doesn't work. I'm at my wits' end; has anyone else run into this kind of thing? Note: there is probably a different solution for each website, since the manifestations are different.

i use add ons like forecast fox which i liked at the bottom of Firefox

now they have removed and i have been relegated to use some stupid add on to replace the add on bar

it seems like FF is trying to emulate Chrome which also does not have an add on bar

so, is there anyway to display items at the bottom anymore, what gives?

Please, please revert this retro step in your next version. There's nothing that I'd call an improvement. And a leaky bandaid in the form of an addon is waste of good intentions.

I am a long-time enthusiastic Cleeki add-on user, but after the most recent upgrade (WIN 8.1 x64) of Firefox 37.0.2 to 38.0.1 the horizontal channelbar of Cleeki has dissappeared. It used to automatically show up on text selection, and present all its usefull functions. When text is selected and the right mouse button is clicked, the context menu item "Cleeki - Firefox accelerators" is still there and can be used though. Functionality is still ok, but invoking has become tedious. I had to restore a previous disk image backup of my entire system. Help! TIA for looking into this...

All comments and responses to postings appear, but no way to click or start the video.

Also, on Youtube Home screen, provides the following: Hello, you seem to have JavaScript turned off. Please enable it to see search results properly.

As a result, I've updated Javascript, Flash and have made certain Javascript is ENABLED. Still no taskbar. that will enable me to play YouTube videos.

PS: HAVE TO USE Firefox 34 as ALL subsequent updateS result in the following JavaScript Application error:

One installation of Firefox 38.0.5 on windows 8.1 does not display spinner box controls (see attached image). They are there but with 1 or 2 pix height as clicking the grey bar sometimes increases and sometimes decreases the numeric value.

Tried creating a new profile with no addons. Same problem. Haven't tried reinstalling Firefox yet.

This is not a problem with the website as this occurs on all sites with this type of form element.

It is also probably not a Firefox bug as I have Firefox 38.0.5 on Windows 7 at work that displays these form elements correctly.

Zoom (Ctrl +/-) does not change the erroneous appearance of the controls.

Any idea how to fix this?

I hate new firefox 89 looks. I can tolerate buttons. I can even tolerate ugly frameless tabs. But I will not tolerate bookmarks that are twice as fat as before. This is waste of space. Before I was able to see all my bookmarks from bookmark menu on screen. Now they are superfat and I have to scroll constantly in every sub-folder. Am I supposed to buy 4k screen now just because devs decided to make everything big like in touch-screen computers, even for mouse and keyboard users? Why is there no compact view anymore, only normal and superfat touch mode?

Is there any easy way, preference or something to restore old thin look? I googled topic and found some info about css styles but it includes too much of interfering with browser for me to do it. I want easy and permanent solution.

Basically everything is very slow and every action takes a whole lot of time to complete - Switching tabs takes about half a second to a full second (About 5 seconds if there's another tab currently loading/refreshing), clicking the middle mouse button takes again, about half a second to a full second for the scroll arrows to show up, same exact thing with regularly clicking the scroll bar on the right, Firefox pretty much freezes for about a whole second before reacting to the click.

I've tried running Firefox with addons disabled, that hasn't helped, which I was sure it wouldn't since this problem started out before I even got any addons - pretty much the second I installed Firefox. I've running Firefox on a brand new SSD card and a fresh installation of Windows 8.1. I've tried both Aurora and Nightly (currently using Nightly), both are just as slow.

I haven't tried resetting, since again, issue was already there when I first installed Firefox.
