Whenever I try to open Firefox, it takes about 25 seconds to boot. This behavior can be observed both with all the extensions running and in safe mode. The link to the profiles are shared below.

With extensions: https://share.firefox.dev/3riMPQZ In safe mode: https://share.firefox.dev/3OadE31

I have been noticing this for a few months now. Firefox works just fine after wasting ~25 seconds initially. I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times. Right after the installation, the boot-up can be very fast (less than 1 second). However, after using Firefox for a few hours, the problem comes back.

I am not well-versed in reading Firefox profiler reports. So, please help me figure out what's actually happening in those ~25 seconds.

When selecting "Open in Firefox" in the "What do you want to do with this file?" box or on about:preferences and then opening a PDF file on the web, instead of downloading the file to RAM and opening it with its online address, Firefox downloads the PDF to /tmp/mozilla_${USER}0 and opens it from there. This also adds it to the download history. I have set the about:config flag browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir to true so the files I just open and don't want to permanently download don't clutter my $HOME/Hämtningar (downloads) folder. I tried to first prevent that by selecting the default action to do when tasked to open a PDF, but that didn't fix it, so I set the about:config flag. Unfortunately, setting the default action stopped Firefox from opening a PDF inline without downloading it and I cannot find any option along the lines of "Preview in Firefox" (as described in this support article ).

A few days ago I was downloading a ZIP file and was warned that "This file contains a virus or malware". Fine, thank you for telling me but now how do I seeing the same warning every time I start Firefox? The file in question does not exist on my computer so far as I can tell and I did a thorough search through 3.5tB of storage on the machine to make sure. How do I stop this warning?

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

Recently i found that the memory usage can be very large when watching live-stream,tried many ways to fix but none of them was useful. Then i found the new function of "minimize memory usage" button,it is useful,but not so convenient.Can you please add a new way to use this function? Like: set a number of memory usage(for example 256000KB),when reach this number trigger the "minimize memory usage".Then it will be like "auto minimize memory usage". Or,you can just set an UI button on the toolbar to trigger "minimize memory usage".

Please check my screenshot Pic1:It's the live-stream tab,memory usage 1800+MB Pic2:But it seems not so large in "about:performance"

Good day,

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

I am trying to migrate from a very old version of Firefox (v. 55) to the current one, but there is an app that is more helpful to me that all the other features combined. That is the "Tab Grouping" app that will not run in any version of FF higher than v. 55.

In my work, which often includes a tremendous amount of research, I need to be able to quickly go from one group of tabs to another. If I had to open all these sites manually, that would take the better part of the day and frankly I don't have near the mental capacity to remember the tremendous number of tabs. I have had a couple replies (Thanks!) to this question sometime back, but unfortunately none were even close in performance.

So, can anyone direct me to an app that will allow very quick movement from different sets of windows/tab groups (please see screen shots below)? Is there anyway that I can get this app to work in Legacy mode? I have several other old apps that work perfectly well in this mode.

Greetings. I can't open most sites I usually visit (even google.com) via my Firefox 98.0a1. This happens since today. All error codes are SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE.

Tried to:

  • Disable DNS-over-HTTPS.
  • Disable HTTP/3.
  • Disable proxy (never had it enabled anyway).
  • Disable sending info to Firefox developers.
  • Change settings of DNS-over-HTTPS.
  • Restart the browser (after each action).

Nothing helps me... But I still can visit some websites, but most common resources are not working for me. Please help me because I can't use Microsoft Edge without getting mentally ill. :/

Hello,

I use the Firefox browser on my phone and laptop, and have Lockwise on my phone where all the passwords are stored. Until yesterday, all these passwords would always appear in my Firefox browser stored passwords. Now, they only show up in Lockwise on my phone and do not show up in the phone or Laptop Firefox browser.

I have followed this guide: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-of-support-firefox-lockwise and am syncing passwords across devices, but this did not solve the problem.

Has anyone else encountered this and know how to fix it?

Thank you.

Is there any way to rotate between different screen sizes option using shortcuts keymaps which appear during "responsive design mode" is on. I found extensions which resizes whole browser & they helps. but it also causes developer tool to resize along with browser which hinders me to see different css properties. so i am looking for a way to rotate only screens.

"Responsive Design mode" is what turns on when we press ctrl+shift+m.


I Love using firefox more than Chrome. This is my go to browser.

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

I cannot watch a video on youtube when it is in the process of being live streamed. I remember a time when I was able to, years ago, but I can't any longer. I'm not sure what has changed. I found an article that says to install the optional update called "Windows Media Pack" in apps and features, but no app with that name exists. It was only a year old solution, so I'm unsure of what changed so significantly. I just installed another optional windows update, and also updated the browser, but still doesn't work.

Edition Windows 10 Home Version 21H2 Installed on ‎09-‎Jun-‎20 OS build 19044.1466 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0
