Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!

Hello all, I've yet to test this in great detail. But, it would appear that Firefox is running super slow. It's using about 3GB of ram out of my 16GB (Seems low imho).

When opening websites like Facebook, videos, the message box etc lags. On YouTube videos can lag, and other sites that have elements that popup etc seem to lag.

I only run an AdBlock, and it's even disabled on the pages that lag. These issues aren't present in Google Chrome or Edge. In fact, Facebook is super responsive in Chrome.

I've tried various things to solve it mentioned on this forum, including entering some urls to access more advanced settings which hasn't worked.

Thanks alot.

It does not matter how many times I change this setting in preferences to "Open in Firefox" I still get this pop-up every time I click a pdf.

It also does not matter how many times I select "open with preview" and click "Do this automatically for files..." box. Every time I click the next pdf the same thing pops up!?!?!?!

And additionally no matter my selection I make ends up leading to a pdf being downloaded automatically.

This is beyond frustrating. Please help.

I have two Firefox Bookmarks items in my Menu Bar that are duplicates. The titles are slightly different but they are the same G Mail acct. I'd like to delete one of them from the Firefox Bookmarks Menu Bar. If I recall there may be an issue of them both being deleted if I try to only delete one? Thank you

A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.
