Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

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,

I'm not sure what has happened but my Firefox browser no longer plays Amazon Prime Videos; quite simply the "play video" links don't work. I've played with the DRM settings, refreshed Firefox via the support options, and have installed the latest version of the browser. I'm running a Win10 desktop. Netflix works fine and Amazon Prime Video works fine through MS Edge, but I can't figure this one out. Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try?

Thanks and Regards

I have noticed that if I leave an empty firefox tab open after sometime the empty tab somehow would start using a large amount of RAM. I don't know if it is expected behaviour or not. I came to know about this problem as I use a laptop and I very rarely put it to sleep, so my laptop would idle out on charging with a empty firefox tab open and it would start out with consuming reasonable amount of RAM but after I return mabye after 20 minutes and the RAM usage would skyrocket to about a gig for only firefox with that empty tab. I do have 4 add-ons installed but firefox behaves the same when I restart it in safe mode. Any help is very much appreciated.

With every update, Firefox becomes more and more unusable. It's been 20 minutes so far on this morning's session, but the tab won't open. And Options won't let me clear data as those tabs are dark. It's hard to be nice when I read these same complaints in forums all over the internet. It's only getting worse, and the recommendations are always the same -- clear your cache, remove extensions, blah, blah, blah. No, nothing works! It's time to blow it up and start over. Not to mention that it's always crashing or not responding. It's just about as useless as Edge and Chrome. What a pity. (Oh, I just noticed -- 27 minutes later -- that the Clear Cache tab is now active. Better late than never, I suppose.)

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

When holding Ctrl and clicking the back arrow at the top left manually, it opens a new tab with the URL of the previous page, as it's supposed to. But for some reason, when I hold Ctrl and press the back button on my mouse, it doesn't do the same. This is quite annoying, as sometimes I need to navigate back, but keep the current page open as well, and this forces me to move my mouse cursor all the way to the top left and back again

Due to a news story about Google working on a top secret Chinese Military project a few years ago, I have blocked any and all connections and services to Google. I have noticed that FireFox browser shows (very briefly) webpage sites being accessed from within websites that I do visit. I noticed a number of Google Services flashing through the list of site connections. Is FireFox BYPASSING my Firewall settings and allowing Google connections? And If so, are there browsers that do NOT use chromium-based code, that honor my firewall settings? Should I just write my own browser code so I can validate that Google is NOT violating my privacy and committing espionage for the Chinese Military?

Hi All

So recently I had some windows issues on my newer laptop and had to resort to going back to my old laptop for the time being. Before using it I restored the system to factory settings and such then reinstalled the newest versions of firefox and such then imported my profiles that I backed up from the new system.

Was working fine for few weeks but the last week or so I have noticed firefox has become sluggish in how it loads websites and such.

I have tried setting up a test profile and that new profile was reacting the same way very sluggish in loading pages.

I have also cleared my browsers cache wondering if that would help.

I have also tested loading pages in Microsoft Edge to see if it was browser or system related and Edge seems to be loading pages just fine so it has to be browser specific.

Any ideas what I should try next to clear this up as the sluggishness is getting old fast!

Thanks
