This is going on for the last 5 days or so days. It seems to happen on a fixed schedule. Everyday on a specific time I will get logged out of google,gmail,youtube,facebook,reddit and have to re-accept cookies. I am not sure why this is happening but it is very annoying.

For two days I've been searching on the web and in here with no luck.

Appears to only be a problem on Facebook and only in FF (chrome facebook videos work fine)

Using

FF 81.0 (64-Bit) Windows 10 Version 2004

Tried with all addon's disabled. Tried with anti virus disabled

Tried adding "Flash Video Player for Facebook" addon

Videos all work and play in chrome.

Frequently when on a website I will do a search, or try to print, and after issuing the command, FireFox just sits there and does nothing. I go to a different browser, log on to my account on the same website and it searches, prints or otherwise functions normally.

Here is an example where after hitting the search button on the website, FireFox sits and leave me a blank screen. Screen shot attached.

https://www.americastestkitchen.com/search?q=ham%20and%20scalloped%20potatoes

I have updated to the latest version of FireFox hoping that the problem would go away, but it persists. This is getting very frustrating, and since other browsers don't do this, it is drawing me away from Firefox, which I have used as my default browser for years.

My account randomly stopped allowing me to add new bookmarks. This started about a month ago (maybe less). I have the account on multiple devices and can't add bookmarks from any of them. I have refreshed Firefox and deleted the recommended files, but nothing has fixed the issue.

Lately, I keep finding more and more websites that are able to prevent me from downloading their images. It seems this is becoming a huge problem now, and it's changing the entire experience of using the web.

And it seems to me that Mozilla are enabling developers to do this, trying to take away people's rights.

In the past, I could work around the problem (not that I should have to) by going to Tools > Page Info > Media. But even that method no longer works (eg go to www.bbc.co.uk - the large image in the top left is nowhere to be found in Media!) There are also sites which show PDFs that cannot be downloaded. That is just SO wrong!

The ability to save any image in a web page is a basic liberty of using the web, always has been. No website should be allowed to display images that can't be downloaded, it's just wrong. It's like someone making a magazine out of special paper to stop readers tearing pages out!

I've sent feedback about this through the Help menu, but no one ever listens.

Does anyone here have the ability to raise this issue with Mozilla? This needs to be FOUGHT against. They are helping large corporations to slowly strip away the basic rights of the public. Saving pictures may seem like only a small detail, but it ultimately leads to a 100% premium internet where no one can keep or save anything. Mozilla is taking the internet out of the hands of the public and putting it the hands of big businesses.

The issue of 'protecting copyright' is completely irrelevant. Any criminal operation determined to leech images would obviously have the ability to do this regardless. Plus, if companies don't want people to be able to download the high-res version of an image, they shouldn't put it online.

Hi Firefox start to take a lot of CPU depending on how many tabs are opened (that is normal of course especially if with flash contents). What is not normal is that CPU will not be released when tabs are being closed, even with one (blank) tab left opened CPU usage is 40%-85% (depending if other process need CPU). Essentially: once Firefox process obtained 80% of CPU you can close tabs but you are fucked the same, now opening new tabs is a pain! Of course restart fix the issue. Is not a matter of addons or updates, Firefox and system (Windows 10) are updated to last version; I feel is something related with flash contents. Is it possible only me experience this?! Regards

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

For about +1 year, every time I open a Firefox window, in Windows 10 Task Manager I see 5 to 10 windows are open and take up more than 800MB of space.

To this day I still haven't found a solution.

Can anyone tell me how to stop this process as it slows down my Toshiba Satellite Pro R50 C10X laptop which is 4 years old and still very healthy ....

I've been using Firefox on all my computers for a long time (Windows 10,) great browser.

However, starting today, specifically on my laptop, it's painfully slow (60 seconds to load Google) and very high CPU usage (over 20%.) It regularly stops responding to mouse and keyboard input. I have to kill it with Task Manager. Everything else on the laptop seems fine. I haven't made any changes I'm aware of that could cause this.

As an example, it took over 2 minutes to load this particular page, then at least another 90 seconds before I could type anything into it. My network connection is fine. IE and Edge work OK.

I've tried a Firefox refresh, no change.

An uninstall and reinstall, no change. I've tried a reinstall with also deleting all the appdata folders (so a clean install, no extensions,) no luck.

I've tried disabling antivirus (Symantec, always suspect) no change.

Unless there's something I can remove in the registry I'm at a loss.

I'm really hoping I don't need to switch to Chrome, or God forbid, Edge.

Every time I restart my pc and load google it asks me to 'agree' to their terms. It does not remember that I have done this and forgets the options I chose. It is just annoying having to click on it each time. I found an article online but it must have been applicable to an earlier version as when I go to Options > Privacy > History section there is no longer a button on the right "Exceptions..". I am using version 81.0.1 (64 bit). Any help appreciated. Thanks

Microsoft is stopping Firefox from accessing the Lovemoney.com website. Does anyone know why?

It started today. It only applies to Firefox v81, I tried Edge and Vivaldi and they were OK. Perhaps it is because Firefox is my default browser?

I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit v 2004, build 19041.508. My email is handled by Microsoft Azure and I use Outlook to view it. The selection of mail that goes into The Junk Email folder is random, moving the sender to my white list does not stop them being junked, so I check the Junk folder and move the messages that I want to save into my Inbox.

Today, I moved a message from Lovemoney.com to the Inbox and looked at it in the Outlook preview window. I clicked on a link for an article I was interested in and a page opened with a title of Microsoft, a message saying:The request is blocked. followed by a long error code. To see if the link in the message was bad, I typed https://www.lovemoney.com/ into the address bar and got the same result.

Here is the page source: <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="content-type"> <style type="text/css"> body { font-family:Arial; margin-left:40px; } img { border:0 none; } #content { margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto } #message h2 { font-size: 20px; font-weight: normal; color: #000000; margin: 34px 0px 0px 0px } #message p { font-size: 13px; color: #000000; margin: 7px 0px 0px 0px } #errorref { font-size: 11px; color: #737373; margin-top: 41px } </style> <title>Microsoft</title>

I had a tab open in Firefox for ancestry.com yesterday and was toggling back and forth with other open tabs when suddenly when I clicked on the ancestry tab the page was all greyed out and I couldn't click on anything. It was working just fine a few minutes earlier.

I can open ancestry.com just fine Microsoft Edge browser so I'm assuming the problem is with Firefox.
