Whenever i use firefox i get spikes in my CPU usage, sometimes up to 100% usage. When i tab off of firefox, it soon goes down, then comes back whenever i have firefox active. I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled, creating a new profile, reinsalling firefox, disabling and re-enabling hardware acceleration, all to no avail.

As stated in the title, everytime when I open a link in the operating system (i.e. clicking on a link in an email or opening a website with Alfred) while Firefox is not already running, the following happens:

1. Two Firefox windows are opened 2. One window opens the requested website (https://startpage.com in the Screenshots) but has no context items in the Menu Bar above. 3. The second opens at Home and has the items in the Menu Bar.

I am using Mac OS Catalina (multiple versions) and the issue persisted a complete reinstall (I wiped my hard drive and did a clean install) of the operating system. I tried mainstream Firefox 73.0 and Firefox Dev Edition latest beta 74.0b2. (Used `brew cask` to install) Also I do have another Mac on High Sierra that does not have this issue.

I just got a new computer and my Firefox sync that I set up that computer had bookmarks, my theme, and how I had things laid out, I tried for over an hour trying to get Firefox to sync, but after it's still the same, I was also switching from Windows 7 to Windows 10 which made it even more nauseating

I have lost all of my bookmarks and the bookmark categories I made for my toolbar. When I go to "backup" they aren't there either. This happened after my laptop froze, I restarted it, and was asked to sign in to my Firefox account upon opening up the browser.

Hello.

I have a question. In which folder is my Firefox browsing history stored, please?

I ask because I want to create a kind of "browsing diary", and tried to export my browsing history via Mozilla History View. But it couldn't find the folder with my browsing history.

I'm working from a WINDOWS 7 64 Bit computer, and my Firefox version is Firefox 74.0 64 Bit. With those specifications, where do I look for the folder with my browsing history?

Thanks in advance for any answers, and have a great Sunday!

Whenever I maximize (not fullscreen) my Firefox a white border surrounds my windows expect on the top. It even hides my taskbar. I already reinstalled it and tried to delete the remaining files in C:\Program Files but without any success. My Windows is 1909 and Firefox 74.0. Maybe some of you experienced the same problem and know how to fix it. Thanks for you help :)

Hello, for some reason my firefox has utterly broke. i was running a slightly older version, but if it aint broke dont fix it right? 2 days ago everything worked fine, but then it simply stopped loading videos.

I tried the suggested "fixes" i could find by searching

clear cookies and cache- didnt work

safe mode - didnt work

refresh firefox - didnt work

new profile -didnt work

disable hardware acceleration - didnt work

disable firefox enhanced tracking - didnt work.

When they all failed I uninstalled my outdated version and downloaded the latest 77.0.1 version, this is a fresh install with zero add ons and zero stuff carried over from the previous install, but still no videos will work in firefox. they work fine in other browsers but depending on the site one of the following happens in firefox.

"No video with supported format and MIME type found"

"there was an error loading or playing the video"

" Unfortunately, your browser does not support video playback."

simply a black box where the video is suppose to be.

or I can see the thumbail but the video itself will not load or play.

I asked on reddit and uploaded a "about:support" log Log

and they are stumped

Hi,

I was able to install my hardware token feitan ePass2003 Auto in privacy->security device. I am able to see my certificates under view certificate after entering my password for private key. After research on internet, came to know that Applet based client authentication is obsolete and hence i have configure my token in Firefox. The next step i.e Authentication page is where i have got stuck up. Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page. I could not get hold of any library of java script for access to token through Firefox. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Problems being reported on websites that Firefox can create issues: Use an alternative browser.

Firefox is creating errors with websites in different ways.

This government/local council website confirms this as well. https://www.welhat.gov.uk/request-garden-waste-collection

Testing a secure website that is under development and Firefox has created difficulties with the web pages and I am told JSON code.

the problems only happen on Firefox: tested the website on other browsers on same PC and they all work correctly. Website has also been tested on Mac running various browsers. Issues have been on different versions of Firefox 74 and 75 and tested on different PC's. PC's running windows 10.

One simple effect is when landing on a page and need to select a button, the first click on the button and a drop down box briefly appears then closes again. Click again and the drop down box stays on the screen for selection.

The most critical error is that Firefox is loosing data that should be inserted into a form. All other browsers operate correctly. Development have spent a lot of time attempting to overcome the problem but its causing too much delay so there will need to be a warning on the web site to advise not to use Firefox similar to the government statement you can see from the link above.

If anyone has a seen this issue/has a better description then please let me know.

If you want more details and possibly debug information I will see if I can source.

Thanks in advance to anyone who has information.

The "badges" phenomenon is like a virus which seems to be spreading across web forums, infecting every forum I'm a member of.

I absolutely hate badges. They serve no point whatsoever other than appealing to arrogance and displays of pride, and they are extremely childish. I am NOT a child, I am an adult. What is with this phenomenon of 'baby adults' who want to bring 'play toys' into a serious discussion forum?

Is there any way to turn off/hide badges?

Seems that youtube has taken away the ability to use the old layout with many columns so it wants to show annoyingly large things on the screen and with way too few columns. (Yes, strange enough, I want to see more than 2 columns on a 65" display)

Thus the extension that I was using earlier to force youtube to use old layout obviously no longer works.

I found that if I set the zoom to 67% and remove the checkbox that allows the site to set own fonts and sizes, along with using font 24 as minimum size seems to produce a readable text size and yet show 6 videos/column.

But I do not want to have other sites like that, so would want to apply it only to youtube as most other sites have actually fairly ok font sizes compared to other elements on the page and ok at 100% zoom level.

I had a number of separate tabs in a few different windows (search subjects) and the machine I was working on would not boot any longer. To get this research back, I am using Sync - but none of the original windows was preserved. Instead there is just a long list of all of the tabs I had open across all the windows I had open. Why does Sync not preserve the separate windows? With well over a hundred tabs open, this makes recovering/accessing this information very tedious - as all the tabs have to be opened individually, and then sorted into separate windows again, to be bookmarked in their search subject categories/windows! Was this just an oversight, or is it technically not possible to preserve separate windows in Sync?

If it is technically not possible to preserver multiple windows of tabs in Sync, it would be much more workable if it were possible to mark these tabs in Sync to re-open them, rather than have to open them individually or all of the tabs at once from that other machine. Thanks!

Trying to set up HTML5 peer-peer video conferencing. Its working on Chrome but not Firefox. I have looked at all the available solutions. I have reinstalled firefox; I have checked that media.windows.foundation is set to "true"; I have checked in "safe mode".

This challenge is an issue which occurs 90% of the time. I have yet to assess what conditions occur when html5 video is finally displayed. I can only say that display only occurrred once today and that was when I first inspected the site this morning.

This situation is occurring both in Firefox and the developer edition. Firefox is latest edition and there are no plugins

Any suggestions?
