Firefox "builds up" internet cache capacity to 1.0 GB fairly quick. I can easily delete it & do it about once a day. I go to about:config & change: browser.cache.disk.capacity from 1048576 to the default, which shows 256000 (kilobytes, I believe). I close Firefox & reopen. It goes back to the 1048576 KB every time. How can I "save" the default capacity? I believe that 1.0 GB is too large.

 I also notice that before I change the value, it is written in bold print & then change it to default, it is not in bold type.
 DOES ANYONE know the "answer" to my question????

Thank you

I have 74.0 (32-bit) on Windows 7, and certain js plugins are not working correctly anymore. I'm pretty sure this is a 32 bit problem only, as folks on other machines with 64 bit browsers don't seem to have the same problem. The site I'm having a problem with works okay on Chrome (32 bit), but not on Firefox.

This is a very recent problem, I'm pretty sure it has to do with the latest Firefox update for 32 bit.

The problem can be seen here: https://subs.humortimes.com/getpdf-sample.php

It's not just that website server though, it's the same on other servers.

The js pdf 'flip page' plugin is not able to display the file. It loads okay, but does not show. Getting these warning in the Inspector Console:

WebGL warning: clear: Framebuffer must be complete.
WebGL warning: drawArraysInstanced: Framebuffer must be complete.

Warning: Empty "FlateDecode" stream.

... and others.

The problem is the same on different servers, and on a Xampp local server. So, my question is: Is this a 32 bit Firefox problem only, as I suspect? And if so, what can be done about it?

Some of my add-ons were corrupted or become unavailable after 74.0.1 update, WHY??? I use a lot (indispensable to me!) the addon Save Page WE and now is not available despite it is listed and appear as active in addons list. Also, some addons started to behave weird, like Adguard which now show a annoying setup window on each new Firefox load. Also OneTab is not loading, the icon still in tool bar but it does nothing. Please, what happens? I know there are improves in each new update, but at what price??? Please stop that!

Isn't there a setting somewhere for toggling whether Firefox's window caption incorporates the current page's title? Labels on my shell taskbar seem to be more meaningless with it enabled. What if I intend to activate the Firefox window and immediately switch to a tab other than the one currently active? From this aspect you can see how Firefox really isn't streamlined for subconcious interoperation with other applications.

Please help. Thanks!

This was originally happening with the ESR version of Firefox (I can't remember the version number. I have since downloaded and installed the latest release, currently on 75.0 (64 bit).

The problem is that whenever my internet connect changes, such us unplugging Ethernet , disconnecting from a Wireless network or connecting to my organization's VPN, Firefox closes unexpectedly. There are no error messages, and it does not generate a crash report.

The problem was consistently replicable on the ESR, and then seemed to go away for a day or two after I installed 75.0 but now is back to being very consistent.

I have tried a refresh, and tried running in safe mode, and the problem persists.

Hi,

I'm not the only user whit this issue but I can understand if it's web page's problematic or Mozilla. If I open www.thingverse.com and I put in search field E:G: "yaesu" on Firefox Phone or Tablet running Android I can receive dozens of results on a desktop PC running Win7 and Firefox less than ten results. I don't knows if it's a setting of Mozilla or other causes.

A few weeks ago, FireFox suddenly changed its behavior. Some websites that used to load when I clicked on their links in e-mail messages didn't load any more. This was most obvious with e-mails from Pinterest, but happened with some other links as well. Clicking on the link brought up a completely blank page, with nothing in the address bar. I tried navigating to Pinterest directly, through the Search bar, and couldn't do it - I got the usual list of sites but clicking on them did nothing. Clicking old links that dropped down in the address bar didn't work, either. Copying the links into Chrome brought me to the Pinterest site, and also an Atlantic article I couldn't reach through FireFox, without any problem. I've already tried eliminating AddIns, checking my Firewall settings, clearing my Cache and Cookies, turning off DNS pre-fetching, and the other suggestions in the "Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can" Help article. NOTE: The problem is limited to only some websites. In particular, I haven't had any trouble with Facebook, or most news websites, or YouTube.

Something is changing my default PDF viewer to Libra open office where I have it always on fireFox pdf viewer.

If I set it one time. The wps gets to open up in Task mgr and always is there to take over PDF's.

WHY and how can some security setting let this happen. ?

Going to program defaults-- does not even show FoxIT Reader but shows the WPS Libre office. and its defaults are greyed out that can't be changed so it doing this on its own also. WPS libre office defaults are greyed out and can't be changed. So their setting override ??? OMG>

Hi! I've been having a constant problem with Firefox where whenever I leave containers open when I close the browser, when I reopen the browser at least one of the containers will have emptied out its contents into the general no-container section and I'll have to spend several minutes reopening all those tabs in their intended container. Is this a known problem, and is there any way to fix it?
