I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Hi everybody! Recently I've been signing in an amazon prime account which gives me access to many service. One of them is Prime Video. I've never been able to use Prime with Firefox. It let's me navigate inside the website but when it's time to stream the movie/series/stuff that I choose, it tells me that I can't because I need to get the latest version of Firefox. Well... It's nothing special in this case, since it's just entertainment. But very recently (less than a week) I have the same problem with whatsapp web. And this is quite annoying since I use it for work and to have another browser open makes me slow down on my job. Can you tell me if there's a solution to this? My version of Mozilla Firefox is 83.0 (64 bit) and it says it's the latest. No need to update. Sorry, the pictures are in italian (I'm from Italy). Let me know if you need any help with translation. Thank you in advance!

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

I mainly use Firefox. I worked offline on a couple of mails on yahoo webmail, intending to send them in the morning. On waking up, I went online to send wanted to send them, but they could not. Needless to say, the texts of those mails have been lost and were not saved as drafts. All my firefox pages, old and new, now open as bare pages, without links, formatting, pics or functionalities. I am not even able to upload here an image of my screen on a typical page. My email is denisbridoux@yahoo.com.

The second one is www.gumtree.com.au I've posted items for sale on this site, it will allow me to log into my account but repeatedly boots me off. I've contacted them and they say to delete my browsing history (done) and upgrade my browser (it already is the latest version). I've no idea what to do next. I have no trouble with other websites (to date!).

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in

Hi

I'm an Computer Vision engineer and I migrated from Chrome recently.

The problem is, when I train a neural network and GPU utilization goes beyond 90% Firefox becomes unusable and sometime freeze my whole PC entirely.

I'm not even talking about YouTube or video sites, just new tab is enough to cause problem.

This never happen in Chrome and I'm forced to keep using it every time I need to use GPU.

Is there any tip for this?

Can't use Firefox on certain websites that have reCAPTCHA. I click the box "I'm not a robot" and the window doesn't pop up for me to select the pictures of the bridges or crosswalks or whatever. I have to go Microsoft Edge for these types of websites. This is one of them. https://www.relaxdds.com/contact-dentist I filled out the online form, clicked the box for "I'm not a robot" and it gave me an error "The reCAPTCHA was invalid. Go back and try it again." So I used Microsoft Edge and it worked. The pop up window appeared and i was able to continue on. How do I fix this in Firefox?

Tell me why I can successfully use Chrome and MS Edge to login and use web sites but not Foxfire. I have to login to the Lions Clubs International web site to pull information and when I use foxfire, it just doesn't reply... When I use the other browsers, it works normally. I have used FoxFire for years and was very happy with it until now. There must be some new functions in the other browsers that FF doesn't have yet. Will it be fixed soon or am I going to have to switch browsers?

When I last opened Firefox and entered a website, it did not load at first. Instead there was a message about OpenResty being installed or running. Since then there has been no other issue.

What is OpenResty, should it be running on Firefox? Do I have a problem.

I run the current version, with Adblock Plus, Duck Duck Go, and Facebook Container extensions.

My baby got a hold of the laptop and hit the keyboard a few times. Now I have lines going vertical, horizontal, and diagonal as well as around the address bar and some input boxes. I have refreshed firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled as well as looked under config browser.display.focus_ring_style to zero. I believe it is something in firefox not the computer since it only occurs there. the lines on the screen move with it when I scroll if that helps. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
