I can really use some help. Odd Firefox behavior.

Been using Firefox forever. And the same way every day. Same way. Have a working group of 88 sites I open after starting Firefox. Usually takes 2-3 minutes tops for all to be readied. Now taking 10-12 minutes or more. Just last few days.

I have three versions of Firefox. Right now main is 91.12 ESR which updated a few days ago. Also 91 ESR portable and 102.1 ESR Portable. All act the same. All used the same profile, copied from one to another.

Things do change so I see that my ESET antivirus updated and could be it. Turning ESET off temporarily made no difference.

Opening the session does use 100% CPU, but that is not new. Always has pegged. Comes down to normal when all opened. Single sites open as expected. And after all sites opened, FF acts as it always did with no issues. Its just loading all the tabs that is the issue.

ODD Note: If I open the 91 ESR profile, then Startup Cache folder, clear the cache from about: Support, it does not delete the files. Yet that IS the profile being used. On at least one of the portables, that works as expected. If I delete the Startup cache files and open FF 91 ESR, it does not rebuild them. Makes me think it is using a different profile, but I am sure it is not.

I cannot try Safe Mode as the Session Manager would not be there to open the saved session. I may try turning off some Add-ons to see if a conflict, maybe with something added or updated recently.

Connection speeds have not changed and are above 400 Down and 150 Up.

As mentioned, this has worked for years. Sometimes with as many as 120 tabs. So it has to be a recent change.

I do have changes made to about:config but no idea where to try to make changes there to sleuth this issue. Happy to post the changed items, though long list.

Can anyone help at all? Anything more I can tell you?

Windows 10 latest build.

I am using Mac Catalina version 10.15.7 with the newest version of Firefox and my "Save As" dialogue box got much bigger. I have tried to move my cursor to the edges of the dialogue box so I can drag the box edges to make it smaller but the little arrow that appear can only make it bigger not smaller. How can I go Back to the regular "Save As" dialogue box that I had before? I have included a screen capture of the big dialogue box and a picture of the regular dialogue box. Thank you.

Recently Firefox started "crashing." It would be running just fine, and then websites would just stop loading. If I clicked a link or searched for something, it would be stuck loading until I restarted Firefox. I tried restarting my computer as well, but that didn't work either, as the issue just came back within a few hours.

Sooo I went to google to search for answers. I got to a forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/881250) that seemed promising, and edited my network.http.max-connections value from 900 to 48, as the chosen answer suggested. I figured if it didn't work, I could always just change it back.

How wrong I was.

Not only did it not work, it prevented me from doing anything. Now when I open Firefox, nothing loads. I can see the toolbar, search bar, and my bookmarks, but the actual screen is blank. No widgets with my frequently visited sites and some news stories, no homepage, just blankness. When I enter a url or do a random search or even try to open about:config, nothing happens. It doesn't even show a loading icon.

I attempted to refresh Firefox, but it got stuck in the loading stage, which I attributed to my already breaking it somehow. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But no dice. It's still entirely unresponsive.

Any help would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm largely computer illiterate!

I have a 2017 iMac, and have recently updated the OS to Monterrey, version 12.5. I believe I was on Big Sur before that.

Now, although when I start my iMac's Shut Down feature, I specify that current open windows shd be reopened, when I start up the Mac again, the Shut Down function asks me if it is OK to close the open Firefox tabs. If I remember correctly, doing that results in all those tabs being lost, and none of them appear when I reopen the Mac.

Under some circumstances that I can't remember enough to describe, the gMail windows do come up, and their contents are shown on the tabs, but are lost when I open the tabs -- instead each window changes to request a new login to gMail.

The only way I can get the old windows to be retained is to not agree that the tabs be closed and to do a Force Quit on Firefox.

I am using a very old version of Firefox (02.2 G4bit (? I think)), but under Big Sur, the exact windows were retained.

Here are my "About This Mac," and "About Firefox" displays. I don't know how to find similar info on gMail.

This issue happens on a desktop computer using Windows 10 On a few sites where I tried to post a comment I get this Invalid Security Token error and everything I posted is gone. I started to save what I wrote so I could paste the comment again and retry but I still get this error. Even after retrying to re-post the comment several times. This has been happening for over a year now and I've tried to find an answer to fix this problem but I can't determine if this is a Firefox, a Windows 10, or some other program or security issue that is causing this. I've also have run into problems with some websites that have required me to re-register or update information using Firefox and had to use the Google Chrome web browser to do that. The last time that happened was with the UPS site a few weeks ago that I needed to track a package. Is this another issue with an Invalid Security Token? Is this an issue in Firefox or Windows 10? Is there some way to find what is causing this problem? Is there a fix or something I need to change, download or turn off? I've emptied my cash and cookies but these problems persist. Both Firefox and windows are current and have the latest updates. I'm no expert on computers and programs, but I can get through fixes if they are explained well. Some online information seems to assume that you know all the ways to get into a program or folder and just tell you to go to "X" folder without mapping directions. Then go to some named program to fix the problem. The biggest problems I've had with that: I have no idea of how to get to that folder and most of the time the name of the folder or program has changed or is in some sub folder that they do not mention. I have been able to fix problems with computers and some programs, but I'm not an expert like you guys are and I don't understand all of the upper high tech language. I guess you could say we are all experts in some things and not so good in others. But if y'all could get back to me on this annoying issue I would appreciate it very much. Thank you Robert

At "https://www.delta.com/login/loginPage?staticurl=" (login to delta.com) there's a user name field. When I click on it Firefox suggests the username. I don't want the username exposed this way because I use the 1Password password manager to fill in usernames.

In Settings "Logins and Passwords" it says "1Password – Password Manager controls this setting". "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is not checked, and "Autofil logins and passwords" is checked but the option is pale blue instead of bright blue and cannot be changed.

How can I stop FF from exposing my username?

For the past few weeks I've been using Facebook's voice chat function to stay in touch with family. I did this using a dual boot laptop with, Ubuntu Linux 20.04.4 and Firefox 103, and Windows 10 with Firefox 101.1. I use the linux side 99.9% of the time.

I'd initiate a call by clicking on the FB Messenger icon, clicking on the name of the person I wanted to talk with, then clicking on the small phone handset icon. This would bring up a popup window with a picture of the other person, and the sound of a phone ringing followed by the other person answering my call.

This stopped working late last week (Thursday Aug 11th, I believe). Instead of a popup with the ringing phone, I began getting a popup with the message "Something went wrong. Try restarting Firefox or restarting your computer. For more troubleshooting suggestions, visit our Help Center. If the issue persists please let us know." I've attached a screenshot of the message.

This led me to a series of troubleshooting steps with no success: - clearing my browser cache and cookies - made sure my microphone was available for FB to use and was not muted - rebooting my laptop - doing a Firefox "Refresh", which creates a new Firefox profile while removing browser extensions and customizations - logging into a 2nd seldom used linux account I have on the same laptop and trying to initiate a voice chat in Firefox (no luck) - dual booting to Windows 10 and trying it with Firefox 101.1 (no success) - I also tried this on an older desktop pc running Ubuntu 16.04 and Firefox 88 (!). Also, no success and the exact same message as seen in the screenshot.

What I can also tell you is that in Linux I was able to initiate a FB voice chat call using the Brave and Chrome browsers, and in Windows was able to successfully initiate a call using MS Edge and Brave.

Based on this, it seems to be either a Firefox issue, or the nice folks at FB changed something that trips up only Firefox. Again, other browsers on two different OS platforms and a separate computer allow me to make these voice calls without issue.

I'd be glad to provide more information if you need it. I apologize if this was long winded, but I wanted to share as much detail as I could. Thank you very much for your time, and don't hesitate to contact me if I can provide any further information.

I see that there was a new version loaded yesterday so don't know if this relates. Starting today, when I open Firefox, it opens in a small screen in the upper left corner. I want it to open in full screen. I have to click twice to get the full screen. I do not mean the screen that F11 gives since I still want my tabs at the bottom. I have Windows 10 and Firefox 103.0.2.

I realize that this is an annoyance that has a workaround. I just want what I had yesterday. Thanks in advance for your help.
