I made a post the other week about issues I was having with Firefox & YouTube.

Having put the browser in safe mode I discovered that it was my ad blocker/s. That said, I had notice Firefox lagging or loading hard on video sites, not just YouTube as well as some applets on other sites. And having experimented with various ad blockers and video sites as well as my own blogs, I find that I am not having these problems with ad blockers in Chrome or Edge, but only Firefox, so much so, that most of these sites are entirely unusable unless I disable the ad blocker/s in Firefox.

Frankly, I've been noticing it for some time, but as of the other week they have nearly rendered the browser unusable, or the ad blocker/s unusable in Firefox on said sites. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled the add-ons, from the Mozilla site, to no real avail.

It is not only annoying but very frustrating and I am about to give up, on the browser altogether. I am not having these problems with the same ad blocker/s in Chrome.

I've spent nearly two weeks on this and it hasn't gotten better.

There it is. Thank you.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Is there a preference in about:config to fake or simply block websites from reading the font-list of my operatingsystem? I think it is pretty ridiculous anyways that websites can access this information since it has nothing todo with the webbrowser visiting the site but going beyond to spy on information that i consider private.

Same question goes for audio-readout, is there a pref to fake or block?

Hello,

When I close Firefox after the last update (current installed version: 112.0 x64 Windows 10), Firefox creates almost 200 processes (in the latest case 177), each using from 17 MB to 65 MB RAM (except one that is using over 200 MB - I guess the main one) using 100% CPU for about half a minute, and in that my PC is unusable - everything hangs. It takes a bit more time to close all of them.

Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you.

I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

I love Firefox!!! But ..

After I updated I an no longer see the bottom 20% of the text in my All Bookmarks->Bookmarks toolbar where my toolbar only displays the text of the drop down name.

It seems to be a recurring issue where new versions really mess up the spacing in the drop down menus of the toolbar mostly (not this time).

My menus are just Perfect now .. although I'd love for the menus shown in the 'manage bookmarks' window to have Exactly the same spacing as the Firefox toolbar menus (the 'manage bookmarks' window has Much larger spacing and is a bit of a pain to use due to this).

Here's my no doubt primitive userChrome.css

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, 
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {
  padding-block: 3px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
  min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;
}

#placesList treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text {
  font-size: 11px !important; 
}
#placesList treechildren::-moz-tree-row {
  max-height: 10px !important; 
  padding-bottom: 0px !important;
  margin-bottom: -3px !important
}

hello

1) I've been trying to change the console colours for the web developer console using userChrome.css, but I have failed. I want to set the background for console.info text to be light blue while the text color to be bold dark blue font. I would like to have it only in light theme. Also I would like to change the font size of the console for both themes.

2) Is it possible to change the folders of bookmarks to yellow. I read there are SVG. I tried to solution that are meant to change the folders to yellow, but failed. Can someone point me to a dummies guide for a solution.

The first one is the more important issue.

Thank you in advance

I just downloaded the lasted "update" and suddenly EVERY SINGLE WEBSITE I visit, INCLUDING FIREFOX, is giving me a security error:, Secure connection failed, Firefox did not connect.

This is obviously something in the latest download, because the exact same sites have no problem when i open them in Chrome. In fact, it's the ONLY way I can post this problem, because Firefox is preventing me from accessing the Internet entirely.

Please fix this ASAP, or I will have to move permanently to a new browser. I can't afford this kind of disruption to my work.

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

Got up this morning and FF said all my tabs were crashed - GAH! Could not open ANY new tabs, not even a blank tab, without getting this message. Clicking on restore tabs did nothing. Closing & opening FF did nothing. Cleared startup cache & uninstalled ublock origin (the only extension I had) but that did nothing. Refresh firefox did nothing (except lose some of my preferences). Went to about:crashes and all it says is "No crash reports have been submitted." Every other suggestion I found online was beyond my comprehension. FF DOES work in troubleshooting mode only, but I lose some important functions in that mode. I've been using FF almost since it was born and have NEVER encountered a problem like this before. I hope someone can help!
