Plugin container often takes 75 to 80% of memory even when all addon's have been removed/deactivated

I've been using Firefox for years...since early 2005 and it has been a dream. But recently it has started to crash and the Plugin container regularly uses 50% of my memory and this has increased to over 95% causing the computer to freeze altogether. Even trying to open task manager to close Firefox has on one occasion taken 20 minutes. This seems to have only recently started to happen since I "upgraded" to Firefox ver 49.0.2 I have tried installing earlier versions, but keep getting annoying popups to upgrade, so I've reinstalled 49.0.2. I know earlier versions may have security issues, but anything has to be preferable to the Plugin container taking over my computer. It still happens now, even thought I have disabled all my plugins/add-ons listed below I have an Acer laptop with 4Gb memory and running W 8.1 Help in resolving this would be appreciated Eddie

when I bookmark a website now I have a bookmark at the top of the list. I also have the same one at the bottom of the list of bookmarks. I right click on the top one but it will not allow me to delete it. If I move this top one to somewhere in the middle of the list it will allow me to delete it but it also deletes the bookmark at the end of the list. I don't want this bookmark at the top as it just adds to the bookmark list. I think it just started after I upgraded to the new firefox. I believe it is 49.0.1.

FF 49.0

There exist sites that put permanently non-scrollable panes at the top of their pages. This robs me of *very* valuable vertical real estate.

Yes, of course I can use F11 to get a full page, but for the headers that are on the page itself, this will do no good.

Does there exist a way within FF to make these regions scrollable so that I can get them out of my way?

Or perhaps an addon to do this?

THANKS!!!!!!

I cannot stand yahoo or bing! I am the only user and admin on my computer for work. I do not want to have to create a family account to block these sites as I am the only user and it is a work computer so I need to be the admin to use the programs I need. How can I block these sites without a family account? I prefer Firefox but it seems I may need to change all my programs over to Chrome, I know they at least carry an add-on for it if it is not just in the settings.

Right to the point: How to stop sites like yahoo from hijacking your searches?

Now before the flames start - I've checked many sites and non of them show how to STOP yahoo(and others) from hijacking, only how to FIX it. Fixing is easy. That is two completely different issues. Stopping is what I am interested in.

With that said, lets ask it differently this time, why does mozilla allow other sites to arbitrarily, at a whim, allow a website make changes to someones browser? If someone sets their browser to a specific search engine, mozilla should not allow it to be changed by an outside source, other than the owner (the user in this case), at BEST maybe a warning system from fox itself asking for the change.

This would beg the question, how many other security issues are working in the background that are not intrusive (key loggers, data mining etc..) that are "allowed" to manipulate fox without the users knowing? How can one setup / turn on some alert features that maybe says:

"Your current search engine [search engine] is being changed, are you sure?" Now users are less likely about loosing their search engine without warning.

I do not use Google for anything and block all their websites and access to them to ensure this. They already robbed the mozilla community to make their browser chrome and I don't wish to contribute anthing further to them.

Under options-certificates-view certificates-other www.google.com and mail.google.com are listed as builtin trust objects. When I delete them and restart firefox, they reappear.

How do I get Google, and anything to do with it, out of Firefox.

After the last one or two updates, the text size in my bookmarks toolbar, my search bar, and the tabs have all from a size 10 or 12 down to a size 6 or 8. This makes them very hard to read. I have gone through all of the menus and can't find a way to change them back to normal - even a small increase would help. Right now the text is small enough to allow 13 bookmarks in the bar. I used to have seven. All bookmarks do work, but it's a matter of have to almost crawl into the screen to read them. I also tried the refresh with no help. I have the latest update, 49.0., using Win 10 with the newest updates.

I'm getting an error message referring to attempts to redirect to Tumblr - Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

I've looked up previous responses to issues like this and done everything suggested - cleared my cache and cookies, both through my settings and through the page info itself. Nothing is working to fix this issue. I've disabled cookies entirely for the site, as the error message recommends, and that isn't working either.

I want to be able to ban all social media, I don't want to see buttons, links, adverts... nothing.

I want to be able to go onto the internet and live in blissful ignorance to their existence. So I want Firefox to detect and instantly remove or ignore all of these links/buttons before I see them.

So there's no confusion: I want them banished into the darkest corners of hell, with no possibility of return.

How can I achieve this?

Firefox displayd an empty item called View Pocket List near the top of the bookmark menu. I don't know what it is; I don't want to know. I just want to get rid of it so it doesn't uselessly take up space every time I open the menu.

It doesn't appear in the Show All Bookmarks window, so I can't delete it directly. I looked for instructions and found a Mozilla Support page titled "Disable Pocket for Firefox," which says:

Remove Pocket from your toolbar or menu 1. Right-click on the Pocket icon. 2. Select Remove from Toolbar.

Great. But when I right-click the Pocket icon on the menu, there IS no Remove from Toolbar item. The menu contains these entries: Open All in Tabs; New Bookmark; New Folder; New Separator; Paste (disabled); and Show Recently Bookmarked.

How do I get rid of this thing?
