Twice in the past couple of months I have lost all my bookmarks.

I have tried everything Support suggested. No suggestions have been able to solve this bug.

How can this be permanently prevented (other than daily backup)?

On a desktop using Windows 7.

Sometimes stopping and then immediately restarting what I'm trying to download in Firefox three or four times gets Firefox to download the file to my OneDrive. But in this case, it doesn't. I want to overwrite the old Vivaldi 2.0 installer file in my OneDrive programs folder with the new Vivaldi 2.1 installer file (.EXE) in my OneDrive "Programs" folder. I'm glad in addition to Firefox reaching version 63.0 Stable two days ago, Vivaldi has reached version 2.1 today. Firefox 63 Stable has many bugs that are easy to notice and need fixing sooner rather than later in my experiences and opinion.

How to stop videos from loading on metered connection?

I'm currently using nightly and, while videos with audio are muted by media.autoplay.ask-permission, and further they are paused if you also set allow-muted to false, the problem is that they still load.

On a metered [or slow] connection, this is a big problem.

Viewing a news article on ABC [for example] pre-loads the entire video in the background.

To make matters worse; Even after the entire video has been cached, a steady stream of 200KB/s is still continually streamed from the CDN.

Example link: https://abcnews.go.com/US/noreaster-season-east-coast/story?id=58738494

If you monitor bandwidth with Firefox's network monitor, or a 3rd party tool [like jnettop for Linux], you'll see that the page continues to load video data.

Not only would I expect it to not load any if playback is disabled, but it certainly shouldn't continue to load data, perpetually, after the entire video has been buffered.

Though YouTube videos play well, every 10-30 seconds or so, there's a frame or two where it goes back a quarter to half of a second. I've tried using the h246ify plugin addon, but it changed nothing. I see problems with video and audio playback are quite common in Firefox, but I haven't seen too many in Quantum (especially something so little as a random stutter). Any help is greatly appreciated, though it's not a very game-breaking problem (I've had this issue since Quantum came out and I installed Windows).

I have no freaking idea how I will ever get an answer to get help so I hope everyone enjoyed reading this amusing problem!!! Fuck computers and computer life I should have filed a law suit against Texas A&M for forcing me to use these demonic pieces of excrement!!!

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?

I'm running 64bit Win 7 Pro - Firefox 64 talking across my own network to a Linux server at a static IP running IBM Cognos Analytics 11.12 After every report execution, Firefox hangs for then the yellow "A web page is slowing down your browser" Stop / Wait appear. I choose Stop and I can execute again.

It would be nice to identify the offending page / script so that I could fix it. I could be a part of Cognos Analytics and then I'd have to deal with IBM support. Note: I do NOT get this behavior doing the same tasks with GOOGLE CHROME. But since I really don't like Google Spyware, I'd rather have Firefox work correctly.

Firefox doesn't crash, it just hangs waiting for the page to finish (time out?) or me to select STOP.

It tried to brute force open dialogs to get me to download something and kept popping up all sorts of crap. It prevented me from closing the tab by opening up endless dialogs. I finally was able to close the tab by pressing ESC rapidly.

So my suggestion is to allow closing the current tab even if a dialog has focus in the application. This would not allow a website to pop up save dialogs and other dialogs preventing you from closing the tab. Honestly with the current architecture of applications I am not sure this is possible if the dialog is modal.

So I guess is there any kind of emergency mechanism to prevent this kind of thing already? I have pop ups blocked in Firefox settings. I just have never seen a someone abuse the save file dialog like this.

Perhaps I need some third party plugin to protect myself from this. I used to run Noscript, but ran into issues with usability of websites. I also got weary of having to enable servers all the time.

Yesterday, the Firefox icon on the task bar turned into what looked like a blank sheet of paper. When I closed Firefox the icon disappeared. I have reinstalled Firefox multiple times and it works until I shut it down - then the icon on the task bar disappears. So I search for Firefox on my computer and click on it and then I get a message which says to install the latest version. Then I get a message to close the other version of Firefox which is running - but there isn't any.

I have mozilla set to notify me when an update is ready but I just watched it update with no input from me.

example: [no input] Double click on the Firefox icon on the desktop and it says wait while we install the latest update. Then the little updater box with the progress bar opens showing update in progress. I DID NOT OK AN UPDATE!

How can I rely on software that does not follow settings? I am using Win 10 and the most current {NOW) firefox thanks to it updating without my permission. This is also why I now use Chrome as my default browser.
