I am using Firefox 122.0.1, Windows 11 with all latest updates. Recently my HP Laptop has been slow to respond. I rebooted and opened task manager. I started Firefox and it was using about 1500 MB of memory. I closed some tabs to try to recover some memory. However, Firefox kept taking more, more and more. After 15 minutes, it was at 10,000 MB and climbing, and my system was using 99% of memory. I don't believe Firefox did this in the past and this is clearly not working properly. Any ideas?

Time to stop using Mozilla products? what the devil is going on with the Mozilla staff? Hard to provide a contribution when products don't work!

I noticed that someone else had this question, but instead of answering it, it just got archived.

When browsing Youtube, the browser Back Button doesn't work. For example, if I start on the Youtube main page, then click on a video, it will show the video. But then, when I click the browser's "Back" navigation buttion, it does not take me back to the main page. The URL in the address bar will be the main page, but it will continue to display the video I just watched instead.

This only seems to happen on Youtube. It's been a problem for a while - possibly as much as 2 years or even more. And it doesn't happen every single time. However, it has been happening a lot more frequently lately.

It's almost as if Firefox just doesn't want to refresh.

I've tried clearing the cache. The problem persists. I've dried disabling all add-ons. It still happens. I've tried running it in troubleshooting mode. Still a problem.

I've tried to duplicate this in Microsoft Edge; it doesn't seem to happen there.

Note: Please read my reply to the post, below, for an update.

I like to have new tabs open at the end of my tab stream so that each new tab opens in consecutive order. This is only inconvenient when I have a lot of tabs and need to scroll to the end for the latest. Because I was working with a lot of tabs today I toggled the following to "true" in about:config —

browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent = true browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent = true

The issue I'm having is that after toggling back to false, new tabs continue to open after the current tab, rather than at the end as before.

I'm not clear on the difference between related and unrelated, so I've experimented toggling one on, one off and neither or both but for some reason the behavior continues to default to opening new tabs after current in each case.

I have also tried restarting both Firefox and the computer, but this has not had any effect, either.

I have included a screen shot of the present settings and behavior.

Hi there,

On Firefox, I'm experiencing "momentum" scrolling where, when I scroll using the trackpad, after I lift my fingers off, it keeps scrolling for a bit.

This is not the same thing as smooth scrolling. Disabling smooth scrolling does not disable this behaviour, and I use smooth scrolling on plenty of programs without it experiencing this "sliding" "momentum" on any of them except Firefox. I've also used Firefox before with trackpads without experiencing this.

How can I disable this?

Firefox crashes whenever I use ctrl v or right click, and pulls up a window that it crashed. Whenever I start it back up, it says it wasn't able to restore session, then restores it anyway after I press to restore it. Another thing is whenever I try and upload a file onto a site it crashes as well. I'm on Mac OS x 13 and reinstalling firefox hasn't fixed it. This is relatively sudden, it happened about around 3 days ago for the first time, and at the same time I noticed it happening certain sites also started giving me '502 Bad Gateway' errors. Does anyone know what's happening and how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

Using Windows 10 22H2 and Firefox 122.0.1 Yesterday I had no problem opening the map on purpleair.com. Today I can't. Get error:

But I can open this same website map in Google Chrome browser with no problem. What changed in Firefox and how do I fix it. And why do I need to fix it, since it all works fine in Chrome

Thanks a bunch,

Google search no longer works on Firefox. Other browsers have no problems. Changing the default search engine on Firefox works (eg Bing), BUT. It can now find Google Maps, but Google Maps cannot find a location, because it uses a Google search. I tried the fix in about:config, but it had no effect.

I am using Firefox with the uBlock Origin and Cookie AutoDelete extensions enabled. When I try and load Gmail or any other Google site, I get a blank page and nothing loads at all. This only occurs when my VPN is on (I use Private Internet Access). However, even with the VPN on, Chrome will still load those sites. Disabling the VPN means that the sites load normally.

My guess is it might be some sort of privacy setting in Firefox, but I don't understand what it could be. The only thing that breaks/fixes the sites is connecting and disconnecting the VPN, irrespective of which country I try and connect from.

I have Firefox version 100.0 (64-bit) and version 122.0.1 (64-bit) installed somehow. Both versions when you click on Help>About Firefox say they are up to date.

I can uninstall the 122.0.1 version. I cannot uninstall the 100.0 version.

100.0 says it is up to date but in the top right corner there is a box that says: Update available Firefox couldn't update automatically. Download the new version - you won't lose saved information or customizations.

If I tell it to download I get the 122.0.1 version installed separately from the 100.0 version.

How do I get only ONE installation of Firefox?

Hi I'm running into an issue where I'm trying to save files while retaining their original filenames, but '%' characters are changed into an underscore when I try to save it. I've tested this with Google Chrome but it doesn't run into this issue. Is there a setting or workaround so that Firefox will leave the filenames alone?
