I have set firefox to clear the cache on shutdown. It does not work. Every night I shutdown and reopen in order to clear the cache manually. It does not work. I was always left with 38kb. Now it's 63kb. What can I do other than dump firefox and find an alternative browser?

Certain websites make my external monitor go black. Most websites are fine, but for some it just goes to black. Only removing and attaching the HDMI to my laptop again, will make the screen return to normal. Could some kind of DRM check be the issue in some way? This is because it happens on netflix.com for example, or apple tv+.

Hej

(Jeg er lidt forvirret over at ende et sted, hvor der "tales" engelsk, når jeg startede på den danske supportside ...)

Endelig er det lykkedes mig at undgå, at Edge konstant installerede sig selv. Det har jeg kæmpet med.

Nu vil jeg gerne spørge om Firefox kan hjælpe mig med at undgå den "reklame" for Edge, der vises de fleste gange, når jeg trykker på "Søg" nede i venstre hjørne.

Den irriterer mig, fordi: 1. Jeg aldrig nogensinde skal have Edge 2. Den tager pladsen for vigtigere ting 3. Krydset til at lukke med forsvinder, når jeg bevæger cursoren derop ad.

Kan I mon hjælpe?

I am unable to log on to my Synology Diskstation 220+ using the Firefox browser. The device is accessed through my local IP address. I have no trouble using the Microsoft Edge browser. This problem has existed for several months and I cannot figure it out. On Firefox I have checked the ad blocker and disabled it. I tried clearing the cache. I would appreciate any ideas people could suggest. Thanks.

I have an HTML page which embeds my Google Calendar. (My school uses Google for Education.) That Google Calendar is set to show event details to members of my school. Using all other browsers that I have tried, this works fine: If a user is signed in to Google and accesses the HTML page, they see the embedded calendar with event details. However, if anyone (including myself) access the page through Firefox, the embedded calendar is shown with the events labeled only as "busy."

I have not tested every possible combination, but I should at least be able to view my own calendar. What could be causing this? I can try modifications either in the Firefox I'm using to view the page, or modifications to the HTML page itself.

I am using the latest version of Firefox with Mojave on a Mac.

Lately I have experienced slowness despite the fact that I didn't add any software and I have Norton checking for viruses. Recently I got a message "Your system has run out of application memory" when I had 5 tabs open in Firefox. I checked Activity Monitor and it showed Firefox using 1.16 GB. 7 other apps were open, the next one with the highest memory usage was Mail (465 MB). Activity Monitor showed 30 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content entries.

I attached a screen capture showing what Firefox was using in one of these instances. Is this "normal" with 5 tabs open?

I closed the open tabs and quit Firefox. Memory usage by Firefox went down, but after a short time the problem happened again.

A search on the internet showed lots of similar complaints about FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content. Is this a known bug? Any way to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

Gets lost (half of them to say the least) every time Firefox updates. I checked the box that ask for saving the logins and password in the Privacy and Security section and this feature has always been active. I must have saved logins for 36 websites and email providers. Very vicious cycle and you know how frustrating this can be. Well you can help by either fixing this bug or do away the feature all together. Because next time this happens AGAIN I'll revert back to good 'ol Google chrome and never get back to using Firefox ever.

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance
