On certain websites this "Geckomain" process destroys my CPU to 100% and maxes my network traffic with more upload traffic than download, using a lot of my data and bandwidth etc. This is a major concern because I have to pay for my data, it's not unlimited. If left open this process will consume more than 1.5gb of RAM while nothing functions. The only way to stop it is to leave the website. I have to use these websites for my job, so I can't just avoid them. I need a resolution ASAP. Thank you.

I have been using ff for 15 years. I had to do a reiinstall of windows 10. I installed FF and can see the first page with my nominated browser, Google. When I search for a page, the address appears in the address bar but nothing happens. I have been trying this for over one hour. When I close down FF and reopen it, the first page comes up find and there was not a problem to navigate to here on your site but I still can't get to any other sites. When I click on this link it keeps coming back to this page. "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system. Show details »" Please help, I like using Firefox.

To repeat, when i click a link in osx, two firefox windows open. One contains the link I intended to open, and the other displays my set homepage. This has happened on my old iMac and when I migrated to my new iMac back in April. I just purchase a new MacBook Pro and decided to do a completely fresh install of what I needed for portability use. I did however use Firefox Sync to load everything that I have in Mozilla (bookmarks, add ons...) the same on both computers. After that the two windows opening started happening again. So I'm sure it has to be something simple that I need to change which was also synced to this new machine. Can anyone help?

Thank you in advance

My 11-year-old PC (custom build, now running Windows 10) crashed badly (hard drives and Windows 10 were irretrievably broken), so I bought a new motherboard, etc. and installed a new OEM copy of Windows 10. I must reinstall almost all software, including Firefox. The old C: drive SSD is intact. After I install Firefox on the new machine, how can I restore the tabs from the last Firefox session?

Hello, A folder titled 'Old Firefox Data' keeps appearing on my desktop. I googled when it orginally happened and after reading the help articles decided deleting it was alright. I had refreshed Firefox and wasn't concerned about deleting anything important. Now everytime I restart my computer a new folder with the same name appears. This wasn't happening before and doesn't seem normal. Thanks!

Apparently Firefox doesn't allow the Vanguard website to "Remember this computer" to avoid having to do two factor authentication every time I log on. The Vanguard rep says this is a pattern with Firefox, as opposed to other browsers. Note: I only have "Enhanced Tracking Protection" selected in Firefox.
