Hi guys-

I've just recently started having this problem with two websites, both of which I have accounts for: my company's own website - bbowt.org.uk - and Canva.

I can get onto both sites and start using them, but invariably - after a certain amount of time - they will freeze up so that none of the links on the page work anymore.

The only solution is to go to 'Clear Recent History' then 'Clear Active Logins' - but a) obviously I don't want to log out of these sites - I need to be logged in to work, and b) I'd like a permanent solution.

All suggestions welcome

Thanks a lot

Pete Hughes

Firefox seems to slow down and then stops responding. I have looked at it and it seems to load up to 25 instances, even when only 4 tabs are open. When it fails the only option is to stop it operating and start over. This problem seems to getting worse with newer updates.

How to prevent history for long unique query strings

We frequently visit sites that use long query strings. Some of these strings are unique and session-specific, and the server will never allow them to be used again. Other query string variables are used for session-specific navigation, like a page number or a record ID, and we may never have interest in trying to get back to that exact same spot within an application, but we might want to save some higher-level entry point. As a simple example, look at your history and see how many entries there are for 'www.google.com/url'.

To reduce the size of my history, I'd like to filter what gets logged. Actually I don't mind "History" for history's sake as a record of places we've actually been. The problem is that the same database is used for autotype and other purposes. The current implementation is not ideal for going back and visiting "applications" versus "specific web addresses". Maybe it's better to state that History should track URI's but when we are navigating back through History to go back to a specific page we're more interested in a less-specific URL. Using Google as an example again, it's OK for History to record the fact that I've visited a hundred Google search pages, or page 2,3,4 for a specific search, but ultimately I might only want to save the part of the query string that is relevant to a specific search. The next time I go back to some page there might not be a page 4, so if I'm going through history again for the purpose of revisiting pages, I just want to see page 1 of the results.

Can anyone recommend a plugin that allows regex filtering of history, or recording of page visits into a different database in addition to Firefox History? From there of course it would be convenient to filter that data by time and otherwise, just like History.

From a developer perspective, History gets written to a specific database/file - can someone tell us exactly which file and format that is? I might be able to write a post-processor that filters out underable records.

Is there a better approach to managing history? Is History just an automatic Bookmark, meaning I should be looking for a bookmark manager for this? Or maybe we should do a mass copy of History into a dedicated Bookmark folder, manipulate records there, and use that for back-navigation?

Time to create an Enhancement request?

Should I write a plugin? :)

Thanks.

Hello,

I've recently encountered a curious issue with my Firefox browser (Firefox version 102.0, Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25145.1011). At seemingly random times it will freeze for between two and five minutes (roughly). UI elements become completely unresponsive and the cursor does not update when moving over the browser window. The window will not minimize. Yet, Windows Task Manager does not report the application as being unresponsive. While never a common problem, any freezes in the past would eventually cause the Windows Task Manager to identify it as unresponsive.

I have disabled "recommended performance settings" and hardware acceleration to no avail. Everything seems perfectly normal immediately before and after the freezes, and I've yet to identify how I can trigger them. I do not recall having made any changes to my browser before the freezes started occurring, though multiple Windows updates have taken place since then. If I'm too impatient to wait I will end the Firefox processes via Windows Task Manager and restart it so I can return to my tabs without having cookies deleted. I have 13 plugins mainly covering privacy/security concerns. Is there some sort of debug tool I can engage to see what's occupying Firefox while it's frozen? I've just found the Firefox Task Manager, and will see if it can offer any additional information during/after the freezes.

Thanks, Logan

Hello,

I lost my bookmarks when I changed my password. Can Firefox recover them on its servers? I've seen many similar complaints arising from similar problems. One would think that Firefox would address this issue to improve the user experience.

Following that last update to Firefox, the Facebook game Criminal Case stopped working properly. When certain things are done in the game the screen in the game is shrunk and doesn't occupy all the space it should do. When this happens, none of the buttons on that screen in the game work. In the attached image, the in-game screen should occupy all the black area that surrounds it.

Other players of the game have reported similar problems when using Firefox. I am currently playing the game successfully in Opera GX browser.

Firefox crashes when switching between tabs. Worse than usual crash, the last page i was viewing is there but unresponsive to mouse or keyboard including contr-alt-delete. Must push and hold the power button on my Dell XPS8940. Windows 10 Home 21H2 OS Build 19044.1586. Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4170.0.

There was a window with 7 tabs, 1 playing a youtube video and 5 with videos not playing, one other site with no audio and another window with a website streaming only audio. When the system stopped, the speakers made an odd sort of buzz sound until powered off. I am on the latest version FF 99.0.1 but a similar crash happened on version 98.0.1. Before that this Dell never locked/crashed up this way.

This Dell PC has Realtek audio just like our HP W10 laptop and they both had issues when new with all sound not working when playing a youtube video only in Firefox (HP Feb 2021 and Dell Oct 2021). Launching Groove Music and playing an mp3 always got the sound working. Problem did not cause any program to crash. Windows updates to drives eventually fixed the problem but it only even happened in Firefox. Current problem is new in the last month or two and only on Dell.

FF v102.0 MacOS 12.4

Been FF user since the very beginning & user on Mac for 15 years. I installed new FF only days ago on my new iMac 27" Intel i7 machine, runs fine except when I click on an external link like in an email or PDF I expect FF to open up 1 page of that link only as in the past, what I get is 2 pages opening up at the same time, one of the home page & the other of the clicked link. Launching FF direct from app dock is fine & it will launch into my home web URL.

Why is this happening ? Previous version of FF 101.01 on my old iMac i7 runs perfectly.

FF has never done this in the past, it's VERY annoying & can't find an answer for it. Seems like FF has done this before in the past on other versions, but I've never encountered it.

I know FF are usually quick to fix things pear shaped, hoping someone out there has an answer for this now or I simply stop using FF, Safari works fine ;)
