I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

A couple of days ago after an upgrade to the latest Firefox (in Wndows 10) my default search engine changed to DuckDuckgo. Yahoo - which had been my previous default no longer appeared in list of options for search engines in Firefox options. Looking at other posts, I deleted search.json.mozlz4 and restarted Firefox. This time my default search is Google. Yahoo is still not an option. Can anyone help me to get it back please? ( I did notice some Yahoo extensions, but these don't seem to be straight search tools but have additional 'features' like putting up photos on every new tab)

Hi When browsing MSN using Firefox, I keep on getting a popup saying I have chose to open a DMS file from https://impressionlink despite me not clicking to download anything.

It always pops up when I browse MSN, but not other sites, and it does not pop up when browsing MSN using other browsers.

I have tried virus and adware scanners, and it is still popping up.

I have attached an image of the pop up.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I don't know what changes, but most of the time I get the message "can't connect to the server" "server not found." I can always sign in using Microsoft Edge. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? Thanks
