Hi there,

Every so often while working on the computer, I will daydream for a few moments. With few exceptions, when I wake up from my slumber, Firefox is loading many duplicates of the same page. Sometimes it's just a new tab, but most of the time it's some page from the Firefox Website.

The last time this happened, a few days ago, it loaded 168 copies of some Firefox page. Mind you, this ONLY happens when I'm dozing, and I've never been able to duplicate it when awake.

It's almost as though the computer can sense my dozing, and takes the opportunity to go rogue. Spooky!

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration,

Alan L. Janover

Recently Firefox has become very slow to load pages. It starts up OK but is very slow to open the first page on a website, often over a minute. Once the first page opens however it will open links perfectly OK. It doesn't matter whether it's a bookmark I visit often or the first time I visit s website it's still very slow to open the first page.

I've tried everything I know (several times); I've uninstalled & re-installed Firefox, created a new profile, loaded in Safe Mode, removed all add-ons and re-installed them one by one and refreshed Firefox. Each method corrects it initially so I leave it a while then re-install each add-on in turn. I let it run for a day or so with each add-on and each time it runs fine. Until I get all add-ons re-installed! It always runs OK for a day or two (or sometimes longer) then it suddenly slows down again and will remain slow until I do one of the above again.

I'm running the latest version of Windows 10 and Firefox Quantum and I've also disabled the antimalware in Windows Defender but that's made no difference. By comparison I don't have any problems with either Chrome or Edge?

Any suggestions please?

Credit Union Australia now blocks my Firefox logins (Oct2019) and they tell me to use Chrome (which works fine)! My system backups from earlier months also now fail (just to prove it's not MY end) so I am convinced the CUA have changed something, and particularly with their haste to denigrate Firefox products. (I hope I'm not the only cua user in trouble, else I'm going to look Really dumb!). Hoping for a fix, but I can use chrome for this solitary site reluctantly. e= [private info removed] Carl. ps,I've tried resets & safe modes to no avail.

As question above states, I updated FF today to latest version, which included 'Monitor'. I am currently running Win7 (64-bit). All my Favorites (about 100 or so) have completely disappeared, as well as the Toolbar. I have been thru 'Recover lost or missing Bookmarks' and other similar sections, to no avail. I have re-installed my Norton Safe Search, but all my toolbar shortcuts have also disappeared. I thought that maybe a Restore Point to a previous time may re-instate my earlier settings, but dismissed this as it won't affect the programs that are currently on my laptop. That is correct isn't it? I am at a loss as to how to retrieve this vital information. If I re-installed to the previous FF version that I upgraded from...would it re-instate my bookmarks/favorites? Can it be done? U state in your 'educated guesses' that my only plug-in is Shockwave Flash...well I also had Badger (privacy), & that is no longer on the PC. It sounds like the upgrade "zapped" everything..,

Please if anyone can help me with my problem it would be much appreciated (I'll name my next puppy after you)...

Been having issues w/Sync for several months. I get "Sync Failed" errors constantly regardless of it's an automatic or manual sync. This is happening on three Windows machines: a tower I built, a laptop, and a Windows tablet. I've even deleted my account, waited overnight, and created a new account, with a different user name/email, and when FF tries to sync, I still get errors. Sometimes the error logs say something about "size" but usually they are too cryptic for me to decode. I'm using a half dozen addons: noscript, ad block, smartup gestures, and a video downloader; additionally, I've probably got less then 100 bookmarks, so not sure what the size problem might be. Thoughts?

A website I'm working on (http://dafluffypotato.com/hitbloq) breaks frequently in many different ways when the reload page button is pressed. The page itself is a static page and the HTML is correct when viewed in Inspect Element, which leads me to believe it's a bug with Firefox. However, the issue never occurs when visiting the page for the first time or when reloading the page by clicking a link on the page that links to itself. Resizing the Firefox window horizontally fixes the issue, but just resizing it vertically does nothing. For one of the ways the page breaks, the elements of the table get their height set to the maximum div height for Firefox. Changing the height of the broken element through the Inspect Element tool after the page has loaded fixes the maximum dif height issue. I was unable to check information through Inspect Element for the other ways the page breaks, because opening the inspect element tool on the broken page switches it to being broken the first way with the max height divs.

What the page looks like when it loads correctly: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-10-17-15-39-32-1eb7b8.png

The most common way the page breaks upon refresh: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-10-17-15-40-20-5d1d08.png

The max div height issue: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-10-17-15-40-52-cfea63.png

I am on version 69.0.3 (64-bit), but it the issue only occurs for some users even while on the same version of Firefox. It also does not occur on Chrome.

Hello,

When I tried to manually delete lot of entries (>2000) from browsing history (sidebar->search->select all->R.click->delete) Firefox used all of my memory and CPU for more than 10 minutes. As a result there where lot of writings to swap file and my PC was freeze until I was able to terminate Firefox.

I tried to reproduce the behavior with smaller set and the same happen on all tries. As an example I selected ~300 pages in history sidebar and delete them. The memory usage (for the process that used the most) went from 250MB to 800MB and CPU usage to 100% for ~2.5 minutes. During this time Firefox was almost unusable and the PC very slow.

All tests, including the initial problem, performed as first task after Firefox complete its load and without any network/web traffic by me.

I don't have the fastest PC or lot of GB of memory, but what I have should be far from enough in order to delete some entries with any additional "re-configuration" on the back, without "melt" it. CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz MEM: 4GB OS: Windows 7 (64 bit) Firefox: 69.0.3 (64-bit)

Do you think I have to report it a a bug?

Firefox is constantly logging me out of webpages even while I am on the page. For example, if I'm in gmail I will login and 2 minutes later it will log me out, even if I'm on the same page. The same happens with many other websites. I've been watching a YouTube video and been logged out halfway through the video too. For Salesforce I have to receive confirmation emails to confirm that I am the right person logging into the account. I've tried other solutions on these forums but nothing seems to work. I have my cookies to save and use custom settings for my history. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi - I recently deleted SSLs from two of my websites and whislt doing so took all necessary steps to forced HTTP not HTTPS. The sites: 15rueduvieilhopital.fr & thetallskinnylattephilosopher.com load in all browsers and on all devices ok EXCEPT FF on my desktop (v69.0.3 on Mac OS 10.14.6) which keeps looking for the SSl and, because it can't find one, generates a security warning. For the record this doesn't happen in a private browsing window in FF. It appears that FF is somehow caching the SSL. I have deleted 'Everything' from my history and quite and restarted FF but the probelm perists.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the SSLs from the cache?
