The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

Hello! i've recently came across a problem with the new firefox update that was installed, and i've been having freezing, slowness, and pausing, when opening new tabs. Every time i open at least three or more tabs, and then when i want to switch to another tab it freezes on the tab i was already on, then after 5-10 seconds, it goes to the new tab. it happens every time and it makes me mad that i have to deal with this, and i just want it fixed. I love firefox, and i want to continue using it without this issue.

I have tried EVERYTHING to fix it!

  • Removed some extension's (besides an ad blocker).
  • Tried starting in safe mode, same issue.
  • Cleared out my history and cache.
  • Unchecked "Use hardware acceleration when available".
  • Tried a different browser, Like chrome, No issue occurred and i was able to open at least 20-30 tabs, and zero freezing/stuttering.
  • Checked for a PC virus, There were none that i could find (I hope).

If anyone can help me with this issue, that would be amazing! If this issue still occurs, i'll just have to deal with it until it gets fixed in an update, Or go use a different browser.

[PL]: Zwracam się do Państwa z uprzejmą prośbą i pytaniem: jak przywrócić sesję w Mozilli Firefox bez odświeżania przywracanych kart? Podczas użytkowania, Mozilla Firefox niespodziewanie się zamknęła. Pojawiła się możliwość przywrócenia sesji (co zostało zaprezentowane na dołączonym zrzucie ekranu). Zależy mi, by po wciśnięciu przycisku ,,Przywróć sesję", wszystkie przywrócone karty otworzyły się bez odświeżania, czyli innymi słowy, by otwarte w tych kartach strony internetowe nie zostały odświeżone. Niektóre strony internetowe po odświeżeniu nie będą już aktywne bądź nie będą już posiadały informacji, które są mi niezbędne do dalszej pracy, dlatego zależy mi, by odzyskać je w takim stanie, w jakim były one przed nieoczekiwanym zamknięciem Mozilli Firefox, gdyż jest to sytuacja, która nie wynika z mojej winy tylko z zaistniałej awarii Mozilli Firefox. Proszę o odpowiedź, co należy zrobić (np. co zmienić w ustawieniach przeglądarki Mozilla Firefox lub gdziekolwiek indziej), by przywracając sesję, karty nie zostały odświeżone. Jeśli znają Państwo jakieś inne sposoby, by karty w przeglądarce nie zostały odświeżone (związane np. z przywracaniem systemu do punktu przywracania bądź z połączeniem internetowym), to proszę o wskazówki, ponieważ nieoczekiwane zamknięcie Mozilli Firefox spowodowało mi ogromne kłopoty. Z góry serdecznie dziękuję za pilną pomoc, ponieważ jest mi ona potrzebna jak najszybciej z uwagi na moje obowiązki.

[EN]: I am asking you with a kind request and a question: how to restore a session in Mozilla Firefox without refreshing the restored tabs? Mozilla Firefox quit unexpectedly while in use. There is an option to restore the session (as shown in the attached screenshot). After pressing the "Restore session" button, I want all restored tabs to open without refreshing, in other words, that the websites opened in these tabs will not be refreshed. After refreshing, some websites will no longer be active or will no longer have information that is necessary for my further work, so I want to recover them in the state they were in before the unexpected shutdown of Mozilla Firefox, because this is a situation that is not my fault but the failure of Mozilla Firefox. Please. o answer what needs to be done (e.g. what to change in the settings of Mozilla Firefox or elsewhere) so that the tabs are not refreshed when restoring the session. system to a restore point or with an internet connection), I am asking for tips, because Mozilla Firefox unexpectedly shutdown I was in great trouble. Thank you very much in advance for your urgent help, because I need it as soon as possible due to my responsibilities.

Hello,

I am a Web Developer, fixing a website for my client. After the page is cached in Mozilla Firefox the layout breaks, when I clean the cache everything is back to normal. This issue is only present in Mozilla Firefox, I don't have that issue with Google Chrome.

Website URL: https://www.impeccablex.com/ Please see the screenshots attached, you can see the layout before and after.

I have tried almost everything that I could think of, don't know what to try next. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance! Best Regards, Mario C.

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

A few moths ago, when you visited a website and then typed some new search-term in the address-bar, you used to be able to search right in that tab. Now a new tab opens up and you get moved there.

While programming, i search for a lot of stuff. Switch to Firefox -> Ctrl+L -> type search-term is the fastest way i found to search for whatever I need. Problem is: now my browser clutters itself by always opening new tabs instead of just reusing the one i don't need anymore.

So my questions would be this:

  1. Is it possible to restore the old behaviour of staying within your one tab?
  2. If there is some other shortcut that allows for searching without moving to a new tab?

(I also tried Ctrl+K and Ctrl+J. Both still open a tab when you already are on a website.)
