I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

I use Win 10 Pro. If I want to copy something - a document or site address or use any other control in the menu, sometimes the menu options appear and sometimes they don't. Sometimes nothing happens and I have to hit Esc several times to get a program or menu selection to work. Occasionally, I even have to reboot. I seldom use other browsers but when I do, they don't seem to have a problem. I'm thinking of resetting Firefox but I'm concerned about everything I'll lose. I've tried to simply update my browser but it doesn't help. Suggestions?

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

Firefox (84.0.2 x64) has recently become a memory hog to the point where my system (W7) slows to a point where it is unusable. I do not wish to spend an entire day (or more) troubleshooting in the hope that I can make go away a problem that didn't exist 1 month ago do so how can I roll back to an earlier release (say the one running in december last year) which did not have any of these problems?

I attach two screen prints from a laptop (W7 12GBRam) running one instance of firefox with maybe 20 open tabs Windows Task Mgr which shows Firefox with 9 processes using around 5GB with one process using 2GB Firefox task mgr which shows 25 tabs using a total of around 0.5GB

Clearly the info in the firefox taskmgr is rubbish - or rather not reporting the same thing!

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

I have lost 5 years worth of stuff, including EVERYTHING I had saved that I needed for my studies. Someone please help! I'm not very tech savy, I did not click on anything for this to happen. My browser has done usual updates before and never had this issue. Please help!!!

As a webgroup site manager I usually have a single window open dedicated to multiple pages within the site. I can have as many as a half-dozen tabs ALL with the same name - (then the page-in-use). But all I can see/read is the first part. Is there a way to 'customize' the contents/name/words showing on a tab? Or a way to change the color of the tabs to help differentiate which one is which? I'd like to be able to change "main@beta.groups.io | Messages" to just "Messages" because "main@beta.groups.io | Pending Messages" looks exactly the same until out-of-sight in the tab. Or, I'd be happy enough to make "Messages" green and "Pending Messages" to orange.
