Recently, my windows crashed and when the PC restarted and I opened mozilla I noticed two thinngs - first all of my extensions were disabled and I didn't have my Firefox theme, and then I noticed that I don't have any of my saved passwords anymore ( I was also disconnected from my mozilla account and had to login ). I noticed that I still had all my extensions installed but they were all disabled. I did however have all my bookmarks. Do you know what could've happened and is there a way I can restore my saved passwords ?

Firefox somehow took 4-11 second to actually connect to new address, even the sites I regularly visits. after I'm updating to Windows 11.

So I I've been holding out upgrading to W11 for some time now, but have to upgrade after being tipped by a friend about ONE convenient feature for multitasking, split apps view and combining it into one tab. So far so good, didn't experience any issue. One complain I have is the gigantic cut, copy, open..etc Tab at the top of the new file explorer. But, again, nothing out of the ordinary.

But when I opened Firefox for the first time after upgrading I noticed a painful delay before actually loading the new pages. At first I thought it was only because I just recently updated the OS, so I leave for few hours and keep working my docs. After going back to browse I still have the same issue. This time I notably irritated because of browsing my regularly checked websites have so much delay now compared to before I upgrade to W11.

Here's the list of thing I tried to fix this issue.

   Clearing caches
   Disabling add ons
   Disable enhanced protection
   Refresh Firefox program
   Updating my chipset driver 
   updating my gfx driver
   Reseting my network.

Nothing I tried above worked.

Again the issue is not internet speed. When I downloaded the AMD drivers, it was 14MBps, quite fast.

Then I open the "task manager" and tick the "always on top" option. I noticed that Firefox is still idling even after I clicked links in my homepage. Firefox only uses 2% of CPU usage. It stays that way for 4-11 seconds (depending on the websites I tested) before eventually ramps up the CPU usage to the percentage I expected to opens a new website.

Anyone knows the answer? Please I'm getting desperate here. I don't want to daily drive chromium forks and would like to keep using Firefox.

As mentioned Firefox, unlike Chrome, does not ask me where I want to download a file on my computer. I have it checked to "Always ask me where to download the file" and yet it still does not. Additionally when downloading PDFs it opens another tab as a preview for the document in question that I have just opened, but I do not want it to it is quite annoying. Thank you for your help.

Try this test first. Go to About:Config, write TLS , change the setting to max (4) . Then attempt to download the firefox installer. The website won't load, as the webmasters did not enable TLS 1.3 , which in 2023 is kind of a shame. The browser cannot update itself either automatically if only TLS 1.3 is allowed, and TLS1.2 is disabled.

The can be an easy fix. I wonder why Mozilla did not solve this already years back. I also wonder why fans, and security researchers did not scream about it in the past..

For the download.mozilla.org the cipher suite Key Exchange is P256, while the Signature is RSA-PKCS1-SHA512, for Transport Layer Security 1.2

I'm sure Mozilla can do better then this, so kindly review these items, and update your website with stronger / modern encryption standards. Decommission the legacy ones please. While you are at it, please also enable HSTS. ;) Cheers!

Okay, I went to your HELP article about installing Private Network and tried to follow the instructions, but the button allowing me to down-lode didn't appear, as indicated in the article. Finally, I started a new account, with a free trial and a $2.99/monthly fee for 3x installations. As I already have an account, and I'm only aware of 1x installation on that - the old Windows 10 computer that can't be upgraded to W11. I don't know how to access information about these accounts...to see if I have used more than 1 installation on my first account, for example. Can someone help me with all of this? Thanks.
