I am setting up a Surface 6 to replace a Surface 3 that has developed ailments. This is a problem that I found with the S3 and found a simple fix but was not smart enough to keep my notes. So now I get to solve it again.

With a web site displayed like cnn.com where there is a link at the top (CNN logo) there is a problem when a drop-down list of bookmarks covers that logo/link. When I click on a bookmark with the Surface pen, the click event goes instead to the page "underneath" the drop-down list and I go zooming off to that link instead of to the bookmarked link that I want.

I see this when using the Surface pen, not with a conventional mouse. The tablet is running in normal screen mode, not in tablet mode.

My recollection is that the fix was as simple as checking or unchecking a box but I can find nothing about it now and have no clue where the box might have been.

Gmail.com just flat-out refuses to load. It works literally everywhere else, but the vast majority of the time it's acting like I'm not connected to the internet at all. I've managed to...trick it into connecting twice now by closing the tab, attempting to go to gmail.com in a new tab, then leaving it alone for about five minutes and coming back to remind it that I'm still trying to load the page it seems to have forgotten to load. I'm not exactly locked out of my email, but what the hell is going on?

When I tried to log into the browser with my firefox account, instead of logging in I was created a new account. It turned out that by entering the login options it was redirected to the Chinese version of the page accounts.firefox.com.cn. Even if you change the link content manually, I cannot log into my European account in the browser. Why is this happening? Is my data which I accidentally used to re-register on the Chinese version safe?

Firefox 78.0.1 does not remove closed pages from memory - lags and high RAM usage

After updating from 77 (I think it was 77.0.2?) to 78.0.1 I started noticing terrible firefox performance after a few minutes of browsing. My standard browsing habit consists of launching browser with 1 pinned tab and 1 home page (so 2 tabs only), then opening 5-10 tabs from my bookmarks, checking pages then closing them and leaving only 1 pinned page open. In firefox 78.0.1 after doing this (opening and then closing multiple tabs "to the right" using new context menu added in 78) my ram usage does not drop. It goes from 2.4GB (system only usage) to 5.0GB and does not drop after closing tabs. However when I open 10-20 tabs again RAM usage does not rise (maybe slightly, like 5.3GB). So it looks like firefox has multiple tabs stored in ram and opening new tabs just rewrites that memory instead of allocating new one. I have 8GB of ram so 3GB of usage from 1 open tab is crazy. I think it was 500-900MB before. I also have terrible lags because of this - browser hangs up every few seconds for few seconds. I had trouble writing this post with 2 tabs open because of 3.3GB ram usage! Restarting browser helps - ram uasge rises from 2.4GB to 3.2GB only (800MB for 2 tabs) but every new opened and closed tab seems to stay in memory. For example if I open 10 more tabs except for 2 that always open so I have 12 tabs I have 3.6GB memory usage. After I close them it slowly drops to 3.5GB instead of returning to 3.2GB. It does not matter how I close tabs - using right click context menu (close other tabs, close tabs to the right), using X on tabs, or using add-on to close all tabs except for pinned ones. They always remain in memory somehow. PLS fix this ASAP.

P.S. I also tried checking about:performance menu but there is nothing interesting here. It says that 2 opened tabs and addons use 100MB of memory which is not true because browser at this moment uses 1060MB.

Update 1: I also tested safe mode. 3,4GB of PC RAM usage on firefox safe mode start. Opened few tabs, ram usage goes to 4.2GB. After closing all tabs except for 1 ram usage start to SLOWLY decrease but it stops at 3,7GB. Ram usage drop was really slow like 10-30 seconds. It should be instant after closing tabs.

When I now click on the open space of the bar I get a dropdown of saved sites but not the most used ones like I used too. This has happened in a previous update too and because I cannot find a fix solution, I'm forced to make a post.

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

With love and Thanks

It is a folder in program files (x86)\common files\

When I mouse hover over any of the EXEs it says it is a Firefox program. Google tells me nothing.

The problem is, it (the update.exe) keeps causing games to minimize whilst I am playing. I know this, because I installed Windows Focus Logger. I ended up deleting it. So far I have had no issues with Firefox functionality.

What is it for ? And why is Update trying to phone home ? And why is it ignoring all Windows 10's settings to not grab focus ?

Hi everyone,

When I check my email, i have a tendency to just type in "gmail" and then search directly from the search bar. For some reason Firefox decided to give me an option to "add http://" to the beginning of my search term to 'make it easier'

Problem is now it just puts in http://gmail/ which causes issues as it doesn't add .com and I can't find the option to remove this from my search bar or bookmarks. I've reset and cleared the history and everything, and can't find this option. I'd like to just disable it outright, as all it's done is cause a headache.

Attached is the autocomplete filling in the first entry, which I cannot find a way to remove it. I realy like firefox and know there's a way to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!
