When Firefox downloaded the latest patches - 96.0 and 96.01 - my computer has stopped working properly. Websites won't load, everything freezes up, get error message "Not responding". I've tried a few things to fix it - virus scan, resetting systems to previous date before the updates, etc. Nothing has fixed this.

Firefox is an excellent browser. I use it on all of my devices.

Is there a way to save the current tab to a URL file on the Windows (Version 7 and 10) file system. I realize you can do that by dragging the URL from the Firefox URL list box to the file folder but for various reasons I was hoping that it would also be possible as one of the choices from the Menu (as in "\File\Save Page As").

If that is possible I have another question.

In a Windows file folder with a number of URL files, can I select a number of those files and right-click the selected files and have them all loaded on to Firefox simultaneously.

I know that this worked with a single URL file in a Windows file folder (by Double Clicking it) but I have not been able to find a way to do it with a group of selected URLs in a Windows file folder.

Both of the above were available in the old (now no longer functional) IExplorer from Microsoft.

None of this is critical but I was just curious.

Thanks.

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

Thunderbird-emails with links. Links won't open w Firefox. issue is only 2 weeks old. Have been using this setup for about 10 years.

System 7;

  • Tools say Firefox is update.
  • Webroot says no malware issues.
  • I shut down computer.
  • I ran an Firefox refresh
  • I restarted computer
  • Crash report popup was filled out many times. It says report was filed.

I just received yet another popup: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window. I only have one version of Firefox.

I prefer to talk to technicians.

Update: This issue doesn't relate to "Mail to" when firefox is open. This relates to open emails with links. Links won't open. None of the suggested hints apply.

I've logged into consumerreports.org and am looking at refrigerators and am trying to set a filter based on "Categories" (see jpg image) At this point no input is accepted other than 'Accept'. I can not clear or change any selection. This same condition occurs with all the other options.

When I use Chrome this conditions does not occur. I can set any filter, save it, and see the result.

Is there some Firefox setting that controls this behavior that I can change?
