Good morning,

We have a problem on several machines with Firefox and RAM consumption. We use Outlook WebApp and when we open some mail in a new window with attachment, the memory consumption starts to be very high consuming space on the hard disk and leaving it empty. We do not know why or what is the process that causes this situation. It only happens with outllok webApp. (OWA) It doesn't happen all the time, it's a random problem. I hope someone can help me.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hallo, kann mir jemand helfen und eine Tip geben wie ich diese illegalen unerwünschten Firefox Updates stoppen und diesem Wartungsdienst die Rechte zur Installation von Updates entziehen kann. Dies nötigenden Zwangsupdates und unberechtigten Eingriffe in mein System finde ich ganz schlimm. Ich hatte mich mal für Firefox entschieden, weil ich hoffte die machen gerade sowas nicht. Allein schon das sie wissen, dass ich ein Update brauche bedeutet, dass sie den Datenschutz verletzen und das auf meinem PC erschnüffeln. Wären sie ehrlich dürften sie das gar nicht wissen, ohne mich zu fragen. Kann mir jemand sagen wie ich das verhindern kann, Ich habe gerade gar keine Zeit alles auf Opera oder Microsoft umzustellen. Selbst Microsoft fragt bevor es sowas macht.

Hello, can anyone help me and give a tip how I can stop these illegal unwanted Firefox updates and revoke this maintenance service the rights to install updates. I find this necessary forced updates and unauthorized interference in my system quite bad. I once chose Firefox because I hoped they wouldn't do something like this. Just the fact that they know that I need an update means that they violate the privacy and sniff that on my PC. If they were honest, they wouldn't know that without asking me. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this, I don't have time to switch everything to Opera or Microsoft right now. Even Microsoft asks before it does something like this.

Hi there, When accessing history for today, selecting everything with CTRL+A then copying the selection with CTRL+C the only data copied to the clipboard is the URL [Location]. I have Name, Location & Most Recent Visit selected on the header ribbon. I am not using any clipboard utilities so I imagine it's pure Firefox inspiration. Is there a special trick for making Firefox recognise the PC standard CTRL+A and/or CTRL+C? Thanks

I use Firefox on iOS and I have correctly set it as my default browser. What is annoying, however, is the fact that when I select a text and I click on "Search on the web", iOS opens Safari and not Firefox. Why does this happen? I want to open Firefox when I click on that button.

Thanks for you reply.

I cannot access my Mewe page. First I lost the ability to post emojis and my profile picture was obscured/blurred. I tried refreshing the page, logging out then logging in again but to no avail. Next I tried deleting the cookies and cache and restarting my PC still did not work. Then for the last 4 days I cant even access the sight. I hit my bookmarks/favorites icon and it just blinks so I Google the MeWe login page and try direct access, it just blinks. Very frustrating !!!. I switch my browser from Firefox to Google Chrome and I get access to the sight. The problem is obviously with Firefox as ALL these problems began AFTER the last Firefox update. Note: My computer outside of my MeWe access is working flawlessly and fast. I did a complex virus scan with my AVAST antivirus system it revealed NO viruses, NO malware, NO Trojan Horses and a clean PC. I've spoken to friends with Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge as well as smart phones and they ALL have access to their MeWe accounts. HELP !!! I don't want to switch my browser from Firefox because it screws up all my logins, bookmarks etc. but I want access to my MeWe account. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been with Firefox since my first PC 15 years ago and I don't want to switch .... Thanks in advance for your help.

I notice that Firefox will download and install updates in the background, and then wait silently for me to restart firefox to get the updates applied.

Can I either: 1) Make it so Firefox automatically forcefully restarts once the patch is applied 2) Make it so Firefox pops up something that offers the user to restart to apply the update.

I would prefer to apply this through policy, or a registry edit if possible.

Thank you

Undo last move in GMail inside Firefox on Desktop Machine

A;;,

I run Kubuntu 19.04 LTS with FireFox and have several GMail accounts open at once, right now 8, and in the main GMail, I selected "Move to Folder" and typed "X" in the popup, but when it moved it showed "Moving to Y" and I did not catch the "Undo" popup fast enough and being busy, executed several commands before I saw the error.

Going to CMail help almost all the HOWTOs on this subject are form "DROID" and not the desktop, so I'm clueless on how to effect the actual "indo" or do the following:

  1. Look in my FF or GMail history to find that move cmd,
  2. Either "undo" or
  3. Get the list of files in that directory and "select" + "move" to the right directory,

Oh! Gmail definitely lies telling you labels are the same as directories, but a total lie, as choosing a label only marks the file, keeping it in the "inbox" but with a directory a "move to" command actually moves the file out of the inbox into the directory specified.

I hope someone know this answer and I will also post this on the GMail help forum!

Cheers!

3 days ago Restore previous session stopped working. I lost a LOT of tabs. At the same time, firefox began opening to an empty tab labeled New Tab. When that New Tab is the only thing open in the browser, I can click the hamburger icon to get to the menu, but clicking Preferences does nothing. If I click the plus for a new tab, I get my actual new tab (which is Google) and the Preferences is accessible.

I have reset the checkbox for Restore previous session but it is too soon to know if that will hold.

I have seen suggestions to refresh Firefox as a possible fix. Is there a good way to set up to recover my extensions when I do that? Do I just need to reenable them afterward? Or will they be gone and need to be reloaded?

My default browser is Firefox but I am having problems logging into my TSB internet banking. TSB now demand, in addition to the usual login details, a One Time Password sent to my phone which is supposed to last 90 days. This doesn't last 5 minutes let alone 90 days. I have also used Chrome and Edge to check if their browsers produce the same problem. There are no problems with either browser, the One Time Password lasts and login is straight forward. My Firefox is uptodate and the operating system is Windows 10. Any advice would be helpful as I've had none from TSB Thanks Roy.

Please help. I was trying to download a file from MediaFire, and a popup appeared. I tried to close it, but another one opened up. They were all trying to install an extension and saying "update Firefox" I accidentally clicked on one. It didn't do anything, but panicking, I Alt + F4'd a bunch of times and when I saw that they kept reopening, I shut off the computer. I came back, and I have no new programs, extensions or suspicious looking processes. As I'm writing this, Windows Defender is running a full scan.

Am I infected?
