My Firefox browser is constantly showing 1 GB of disk space used. I've set up automatic clear of site data and cookies. I'm constantly having to clear all data and then sign in to all my usual websites all over again. I'm not able to get onto my banking websites most likely due to this data clog. I'm SO TOTALLY tired of this constant cycle of trying to clear my data and accessing my usual websites. I'm using Firefox for many years without this trouble. I'm one week away from changing browsers. If I go to Safari I am not finding this trouble. Chrome is my next choice. I use my Mac computer for personal use only and my firefox is up to date. I'm using Big Sur on my macbook pro. What is going on?? Without a solution I'm out of here.

My old laptop just crashed for good. I was able to remove the hard drive and use a hard drive reader to see its contents. How would I locate Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks however? I tried doing a search for favicons.sqlite but this was unsuccessful.

My screen shot tool disappeared this week, as did my "share" option (email, Twitter, FB, etc.).

What happened? How can I put them back on my toolbar?

Also, looking for a hopeful solution without having to add a third Firefox bar. It makes my screen (small laptop) too small.

Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

I have used Firefox successfully for years and never had any significant problems. Now, (version 90.0.2) all of a sudden I'm getting severe speed degradation using internet web pages. My normal speed with comcast is around 170 mbps but now getting less than 50 mbps with Firefox. Oddly, I am getting normal speed when using the Chrome browser. Comcast has run their checks and found no problems.

Onion links and sites do not open in firefox 78.12.0esr, 64bit for FreeBSD (compile-time settings here freshports.org/www/firefox) I tried to set variables in about:config, but it's no longer works: network.dns.blockDotOnion = false network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true network.proxy.socks = 127.0.0.1 (tor service enabled on local machine) network.proxy.socks_port = 9050 (same port specified in torrc)

Also enabled proxy in Preferences -> Network settings -> Manual proxy configuration Note that sites on a regular network are opened through a tor proxy and determine the ip address from the tor subnet, checked on check.torproject.org, but still *.onion links do not open.

I am ready to provide any debug information you require. Thank you!

And I import my newly backed up bookmarks. I get the usual warning.... this will overwite etc...... I import.... I get a load of rubbish. This was how I always moved my most current bookmarks between computers. Something has changed in Firefox. Any explanation and help is appreciated. Thanks. [email]@yahoo.com

On any website--from YouTube to Wikipedia, and even support.mozilla.org I saw this bar flickering--pressing the arrow keys made it move like it would in a normal text field, like I was holding shift but without the blue highlights. It messed up with scrolling using page up/down, sometimes it'd mess with using the arrow keys to mess with YouTube volume, and just became a nuisance later on. Does anyone know how to turn it off?

I updated Firefox yesterday and since then everything in Firefox is blurry, except for some drop down menu's for some reason. Everything else is... I use two 4k 60hz monitors. On both of these they are blurry. It also seems like everything moves up and down a pixel when giving input (like keyboard or mouse inputs). I added an image of the blurriness. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Note: This is the only software experiencing this problem.

Best regards
