I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

How to set coockie rules globaly in Firefox - so that I don't get asked for every individual website?

Hi, I can't find a way to set cookie rules globally that get automatically sent to websites I visit the first time. So my problem is I have to visit a lot of sites for research and every time get distracted by a cookie pop up that I have to accept or lose a lot of screen space. I have Asperger and was wondering, how to set in Firefox what kind of cookies I'm fine with and what don't, basically an API or standard or how you call it, browsers can communicate to cookie managing tools of websites automatically what cookies I want to set and what don't. Also I have some Wordpress websites, so I want to know if Firefos planes to provide a PlugIn for site owners so such automatic cookie settings can also work on my website. Maybe some sort of if-else states that the user of the browser can set, for example:

If website accepts that no cookie is needed - allow no cookies.

If Facebook Like Button is required of website - don't allow and inform me to search information on a competitor sites, via a Firefox pop up

If website allows to save my settings (like dark mode, layout option, ... - always allow

The problem with no automatic Browser wide solution is, in the heat of a work day, i just accept everything because I have no time to go in for every website and pick what cookies I want, and what don't.

Also I am a Designer not a Developer so I can't create such a prototype by myself, even if it would be beneficial for everybody.

What can I do, to get such a Feature, or does it already exist and if how is the API called so that I know how to search for if.

Thank you guys for this great Browser and have a great day

Since switching to Firefox I'm experiencing some trouble regarding the playback of videos on different websites which I don't experience using other browsers. At seemingly random moments there are 'stripes' visible which are quite annoying watching a video (see image). I tried restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled and unchecked 'Use hardware acceleration when available' in the preference section but this doesn't resolve anything. Any suggestions on how to solve this? Thanks in advance!

Since yesterday (14.10.2020) I've been having the problem that when I try to watch youtube videos, they end up just... not showing up. Meaning, that while I see the small previews on my main page as well as to the side of the video, the video itself is just not there.

They seem to work fine in Chrome, and I can watch videos that are linked to other websites or apps (like in discord for example). Also didn't encounter this problem with the android version either.

What I noticed is that sometimes, it briefly seems to load the video (showing as just a black square) for a millisecond, then it's gone.

What I've tried (and sadly didn't work): - Have Firefox forget all about youtube - delete cookies - Checked if Firefox is up to date (it is, according to it itself) - Restarted my computer (worked for exactly one video when I restored my former session, then it just died again) - Disabled my addons (no change) - Checked if for some reason Firefox was blocking media on that website (it wasn't)

Headsup that I am probably the least tech-savvy person on this planet, so I apologize in advance if I ask potentially stupid questions. Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm having an issue with Firefox because I want to keep the containers opening on the same website after I click it from a different website but for whatever reason Firefox seems to keep forgetting and asking me again despite the fact that I click the button that says remember my choice.

I wonder if this has something to do with my cookie settings but I'm not sure I'm currently confused how to manage those like if I should just allow cookies per session in Firefox or allow them entirely I mean I'm thinking that with the containers since I have everything isolated individually (That took forever really need an option for that Mozilla) I don't need to worry about the effects of cookies anymore is this correct?

Also would there be a way to even keep cookies but just stop the login information from being saved on the site? Because with me using containers now I think that's my biggest issue from what I think I understand at least.

Hi,

I'm on a Lenovo Yoga convertible and everytime I switch to tablet mode and tap in a text field in FF the virtual keyboard opens for a very short time, FF flickers once and the keyboard closes again. I know that this problem has appeared in the past and apparently been solved for other people, but none of the workarounds I came across work for me... The problem also occurs when I boot in tablet mode and all drivers are up to date. All other applications work flawlessly and a FF reinstall sadly hasn't fixed my problem.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad

Kind regards Jonas

Firefox takes over 30 seconds to load a tab that I've already opened and seen before.

I mean tabs that have already displayed some content, I switch to a tab, then go back to the tab I was previously on, and it takes over 30 seconds to load, sometimes over 3 minutes. This is making firefox unusable.

And because it doesn't happen all the time, it's not very reproducible for me, but it happens often. Is there a way to fix this?

Hello Community ~

I have many, many open browser windows with multiple tabs. Is there a way to save the windows that I am not immediately using. The competitor browser offers such a feature where one can just click the browser window off to the side, and when reclicked the window with all the tabs pops open for use. Everything is saved but it does not open automatically (which I don't need it to) on startup. I hope that was concise?
