Chrome's updates are perfect because you forget about them, but know that it's always up-to-date. I turned off Firefox automatic updates because:

1. Whenever there's an update I have to wait 10 seconds just to open my browser. Many times when I'm in a rush and I need to open Firefox quickly, I get angry that I have to wait for it to install updates.

2. I hate having to remove the unresponsive Firefox taskbar icon, go into my start menu, find Firefox, and pin it back on my taskbar EVERY time there's an update. If I right-click Firefox on the taskbar, it says Firefox (25) because of all the times I had to do this.

However, with automatic updates off, there is always an update pop-up on the top-right for me to manually update, but I don't want to update because of the second reason mentioned above. So no matter what I do, I always have to deal with the idea of an update. This is poor design, and it drives me nuts sometimes.

Is there any way to fix this?

I set up a Linux OS on my computer and wanted to export all my login data from Firefox Quantum in Windows to it. I tried looking everywhere for what to do, but can't find anything. I've tried syncing my Firefox account, copying then pasting everything from my Firefox profile in Windows into the Firefox profile in Linux, however it only imported my bookmarks and none of my login information. Is there a way that I am missing or may have overlooked that will allow me to export all the login information so I don't have to reconfigure everything?

The various pages to help with no audio say to run PulseAudio. My Linux Mint already has PulseAudio running. Restarting PulseAudio doesn't help.

Firefox displays a message at the top of the window claiming the problem is libavcodec. I have the most recent libavcodec.

I get sound and video from many sources, but cannot hear the previews or streaming from the Freegal music service.

When I reopened Firefox 60 all of my Bookmarks were gone 10 minutes after I closed Firefox. I tried to restore them from the Import and Backup Tab but was shown a message "Unable to process the backup file". This message appeared on every attempt trying all of 15 backups on the list. Google search led me to more useless information as to how to solve the problem. I then found all my old .jsonlz4 file and tried to restore them using the "choose file" option on the Import and Backup Tab. This did not work an I do not know why. Can anyone tell me how to restore my Bookmarks? Why doesn't the Firefox Restore Tab work?

I'm still have issues with Twitch streams stuttering or having video hang for a second or two. It seems to only happen when a lot of the screen is refreshing at once/there is a lot of action on the screen. Audio keeps playing without issues. Chrome has no issues at all and plays silky smooth.

Environment: Firefox 59.0.2 and 60.0b11 Windows 10 Intel i5 - 4690k 16GB RAM Nvidia GTX 970 - Driver 391.35 (latest at time of post) 3 monitors - issue displays on every monitor

Things I've tried with no change in behavior: Playing in Private browser window Tinkering with Nvida settings Tinkering with Firefox Hardware acceleration settings Reinstalling Firefox Upgrading video driveres Reinstalling video drivers w/fresh install Upgrading to beta

Things I've tried that have helped: Dropping the quality to 720p - this causes the video hanging to stop but again Chrome plays silky smooth at 1080.

With a recent update I started getting these pop up messages when I visit a website that say "According to WHOIS information this domain was registered on..." They appear to be associated with the "show site information" icon in the address bar. Can be very annoying as I am just visiting sites and having to constantly dismiss them. Is there some way to eliminate this?

Hi,

Is there a means to add a drop down arrow to the Firefox search box so I can see a list of my previous searches?

There was a means to do this in older versions of Firefox using a modified userChrome.css file. See: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/858513

I have tried this in the latest version of Firefox Quantum, and it does not work. Any ideas?

Regarding https://www.familysearch.org. They have a section called "source box" where you save records that you have found to view later. For years this has been working well untill about a month ago when if I try to retrieve a record I get a message saying it's not available. I have contacted Familysearch several times about this issue and they keep saying the fault is with my browser which I sure it is not. I have tried other browsers, deleted history, cache and cookies and refreshed Firefox but I still get the same message when I try to open files, see screen shot. Any help would be appreciated.

So, I am yet another person asking about how to change the background colors so that I am not blinded by the flash of unstyled content. I have tried a custom userChrome file, ShadowFox, addons, and changing the display color in the about:config page. None of these have fixed the problem. Using them, I have made myself a dark theme that even works on browser pages. Now the problem is that the flash of unstyled content is white, and thus it hurts my eyes whenever I load a page. At this point, I have downloaded the source code, and am hoping the find the relevant section that would make the background black, so that for that split second where the css has not loaded, I do not have to see a white flash.

I am using Firefox Developer Edition. I have already enabled the dark theme, and at this point my only hope left is the source code. Can anyone point me to the file that controls the main background color for pages that have not loaded yet?

Hi - This morning, Firefox is slow to load. Normally it is pretty quick. But now it's as though the PC is thinking about it..... it is taking about 5 seconds longer to load for some reason. Once loaded it seems to behave normally, or should I say I haven't noticed it doing anything different to normal....

1. I am concerend something is going on inside my machine. I have AVG'd, Spybotted and Malwayebyte'd :) my machine all of which tell me things are OK. But I am not convinced.

2. There are no Windows updates waiting in the wings. Windows wise, PC is up to date.

3. All other prigrammes I use as part of my daily workload are working fine.

4. Machine is an i5 processor with 12GB RAM and multiple SSDs

I'm trying to debug some ES6 code using the debugger - however on page reload, only the initial file will hit a debugger breakpoint.

This means that if i want to debug other files, i need to step inside a function and then make a breakpoint if it happens to go into a new file.

If the debugger is reloaded it will show all the source files.

I tried to refresh the Firefox browser as recommended, as it's been running slow. However, I wasn't sure that anything was happening and, as it didn't restart after half an hour, I Force Quit it and found that it appeared to be the same as before. I don't really know whether it was refreshed or failed to do so, as I don't know what to look for. Should I try again? I can send the Crash Report which has been sent to Apple, if that helps (I copied it before it was sent). I am running Firefox Quantum 60.0b12 on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.
