Firefox version: 95.0.2 (64-bit) OS: macOS 10.15.7

Any way to force all HTML files to open in a new tab rather than a new window? This really could be annoying when you are working on several local HTML files at once :(

Hi,

A few days ago Firefox on my Mac laptop (macOS Catalina) suddenly stopped suggesting sites I'd visited in the drop down on the address bar and is no longer auto-completing as I type into the address bar. It is set to auto-suggest based on pages from history (I unset and re-set that in settings), and to remember history. However, I noticed today that the history is near blank (it has 3 tabs from a local network page I visited but nothing from outside my local network).

I also noticed today that the copy on my laptop is no sharing with my other instances (work computer, phone). I can send tabs to it, but the tabs that are showing as being "current" when I look at other machines are from before this happened.

I've tried rebooting and restarting Firefox, but I can't seem to find any fixes for it.

Loving the picture-in-picture feature. I googled to see if there was a keyboard shortcut to pop out the video and saw that ctrl+shift+] or cmd+shift+] should do the trick, but on my mac (firefox 95.0.2) the ctrl version seems to do nothing while the cmd version goes to next tab, which is redundant with ctrl+tab. I'm wondering if the cmd+shift+] shortcut is being overriden accidentally, or if there's a different keyboard shortcut for this on mac? cheers

Hi everyone,

I have the problem in the Subject line. FF sucks about 500 MB to be run, on top of which it takes 500 MB per tab, and that makes it impossible to run a research on my 8 GB Mac. Yesterday I was looking for a lamp and had no more than 7 tabs open, 3 of which were largely text, 2 were online shops, and 1-2 were websites with pictures. No Facebook or social media, no YouTube. FF froze, made the whole Mac freeze (well, Mac is garbage nowadays but let's leave that out of this topic), and I had to wait MINUTES before I could close it, because the computer was nonreactive.

When I check online, I see people being like "why can't it manage more than 50 tabs?". 50?!?! My computer dies with a maximum of 10 when it's only text websites!

So, I guess there's something wrong with this.

- I don't have many extensions (SimilarWeb, VPN, and Flash Player), I always use incognito so I can't use the plugin that allows me to use several accounts at the same time, so I can't see what's messing with my Mac. - The Activity Monitor (pretty much Task Manager on Windows) shows "FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content" for each tab, could that have anything to do with my problem? - CPU usage is very low, some 0.5 to 10% max during heavy use. - I seem to remember I used to have dozens of tabs open in the past, although I can't be sure. Is this a recent problem?

I really hope there's a way to solve this, because now I always fear that opening FF while on a Zoom meeting might freeze the whole thing.

Thanks to anyone who might want to shed some light on this big problem.

Screenshots: RAM and CPU usage with 2 tabs open. Two, taking more than 1 GB of RAM and about 250 threads in total? While using 0.2% of the CPU? I'm lost

macOS 11.6.1 Firefox 95.0

I had the same problem early this year - when I quit Firefox, it takes maybe 15 seconds or more to actually quit or it doesn't quit at all. So, I have to keep doing a force quit.

There was no solution earlier this year except, I discovered, to completely uninstall Firefox and reinstall - which cleared the problem completely.

Except, over the last 6 weeks or so, the problem has returned.

Before I completely unistall and reinstalll, are there any suggestions to fix the problem, preferably permanently?

Thanks,

For the past two weeks, I've noticed that embedded maps make my browser immediately crash. I initially thought it was a Firefox problem, but I have been having a similar issue with Safari. This does NOT happen on my iPhone using the same two browsers. This also does not seem to effect Google Maps or embedded Google Maps, but embedded maps from other services. Anyway, I'm posting here because Firefox conveniently provides crash data, I'm not sure what else the cause could be and I'm hoping someone can help.

Two websites this has been consistently happening with are The Empire State Trail bike path (https://empiretrail.ny.gov/) and a NYC vaccine finder website (https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/). Firefox immediately crashes, though with the EST website it seems to be tied to the pathway of the trail being drawn (crashing after I've zoomed in a few times and the path has to regenerate). Safari doesn't totally crash, but forces a site reload and after it fails a second time says it can't display the site.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I'm on the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7), Firefox and Safari and seem to have all security updates for all.

Here's a link to the latest crash data: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/1389c870-51cf-4790-b0a0-fd01f0211202

Firefox v90 on a Mac. Continual nag screen popping up telling of an update. None of the solutions presented by top contributors or moderators work. Nothing obvious or suggested in about:config. Nothing about putting policies in .json files in the correct directory.

It is as if Mozilla refuses to let you turn off that nag screen.

EBAY

The Text in the Ebay Item Description box does not format normally. (Like this! for eg) Instead it formats as though I have changed tabs to only allow it into 1 inch columns.

Why is this happening ONLY on Firefox? I checked Chrome and Safari and those 2 do not show the text in the description box this way.

How is this fixable?

I could upload a screenshot, but the Add Images option just twirls and never stops.

I use Firefox quite a bit and installed it on my wife’s MacBook air and I’m trying to get her to use it. I recently set up a gmail account for my brother-in-law who does not have Internet and uses my wife’s MacBook air when he visits us. 


A couple of days ago the mystery icon—Firefox logo with a tv screen on the upper right—started appearing on my MacBook pro every time she turned on her computer. There does not seem to be a way to get rid of it. Any suggestions?

Firefox has been my favourite browser for years but I am about to uninstall and kick it to the curb!!!

Every time I want to attach/insert an image (on many different sites/platforms/apps) it freezes ~ I have to shut down and start again, losing whatever I have been working on. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a few times and have checked ~ all is up to date.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a mil!

I use a Firefox account on two different machines- one is a Mac and the other is a Windows machine. I have some programs installed on the Windows machine that installed an extension for Firefox. Those programs are not Mac compatible but because of the same account, those extensions were copied to the Firefox installation on Mac. I was wondering if there is a way to isolate the extensions to just the windows installation? Thanks!
