Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Windows 7.

Firefox and only he is seen in the active use of the lsass process. If you open an empty firefox browser with no tabs or only settings tabs, then the lsass process does not consume anything. However, if you open any tab with the Internet, the lsass process begins to consume from 1 to 6 percent of the processor, for a while. On some pages there is more, on others less, it happens that it constantly consumes 4+, sometimes it sags a little to 1-2. However, any tab opening and internet manipulation leads to this result - lsass consumes CPU resources. Does not depend on the presence of add-ons, I put the regular and portable versions 81 82 83.

This behavior of the lsass process does not occur in any other browser that I have been able to install. Be it chrome, opera, avant, waterfox tor browser, vivaldi, and others. On another computer completely zero, this process is also used, although a little faster, but also every time the page is opened, there is a load on the processor from lsass.

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

I recently changed from Ubuntu Gnome to KDE Plasma. Now, when I'm running Firefox (v83) and click "Save as" to save a file from a web page, Firefox gives me a file list with directories mixed in alphabetically, rather than at the top. This is new behavior to me; I don't know if it's new with v83 (I was previously running v82), or if it's a KDE implementation issue.

Either way, I HATE having to scroll down through page after page of files and folders to find my destination folder. Since the dialog box also incorporates full-row select, I can't even click in the file list and type the first letter of my destination folder.

Please tell me there is a way to change this behavior and have Firefox's "Save as" dialog sort the files with directories at the top!

Thanks.

Hi, every time I'm on Youtube, Firefox loads the page 2 times and when I try to go back o the previous page it reloads the current: For example I play video #1, then I click in another video it opens the video #2 page, if I click the back page button even without playing video #2 it reloads video #2 page.

The second problem with Youtube is the audio: sometimes when playing a video suddenly on background it restart the audio of the video and it plays together, and if I pause the video the "first audio" stop but the second keeps going.

Already tried the fix audio solution but nothing changed, also cleared cache etc....

Hi Mozilla community,

I have the Firefox Multi-Accounts Containers addon installed and configured to use separate containers for different critical websites.

I've observed however that Firefox doesn't automatically load subdomains in the same container set for the main domain.

Example:

Container set for https://domain.com Domains https://www.domain.com and https://domain.com/us are not recognised to load under the container for domain.com. I have to manually set every single subdomain to also load in the same container.

Theres no way I've found to do this automatically.

All help, comments and feature request welcome in this regards.

Thank you all! Joan.

When switching tabs, Firefox allows you two behaviours: Recent Order or Tab Order but you have to choose between them. This is a trick to have THE TWO BEHAVIOURS TOGETHER Catch: AutoHotkey is required.

In Firefox Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs" mark enable recent order (ticked) Then compile the next script in Autohotkey and keep it running.


  1. if WinActive("ahk_exe firefox.exe")

^Q::Send, ^{TAB} ^Tab::Send, ^{PGDN} +^Tab::Send, ^{PGUP}

  1. if

Now with Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab you move right and left between Tabs and with Ctrl+Q you move to last viewed Tab. I choose Q because is next to Tab but you can change it in the second line of the script. Cheers!

Hello!

I'm getting an error message from Firefox whenever I try to open it that my profile is missing or cannot be accessed (see attached image).

I have tried everything from the help articles so far, and nothing worked. I deleted the profiles.ini file, I deleted the entire Firefox folder under Application Support, I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. None of that worked.

Even when I try to create/delete/save my profile over the Terminal, I get the attached error message.

I love using Firefox, but I simply cannot use it this way. No matter if I use the default, developers or nightly version.

If anyone has an idea how I could fix the issue I would be incredibly thankful.

Thank you already in advance for your help!
