I asked this previously on Twitter and after the fixes suggested didn't work (at least not permanently), support on Twitter sent me here. (Would have been nice for you to determine the appropriate forum and topic rather than me having to do it, by the way, "AT").

I am still getting a dragging slow Firefox using what seems like an inordinate amount of memory (though I could be wrong, check the images). My first message to support included the first image with the comment: "Yes, I've already refreshed Firefox. Yes, I've cleared my cache. Yes, I've removed all of my extensions/add-ons, though I need them back now." I then followed the instructions to try "disabling Firefox Hardware Acceleration and deleting content-prefs.sqlite".

Deleting sqlite and disabling FHA seemed to work for a while but a) is there a script I can run to auto-delete the content-prefs.sqlite daily so I can depend on your browser. And more pressing, b)second image memory usage.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

How do i go about restoring my old firefox data? Firefox suggested restarting the browser and once it opened back up it deleted all my extentions etc. and placed an 'old firefox data' folder on my desktop. I tried finding solutions but nothing worked. I typed in about:profile. Went to default profile. I clicked on Local Directory - Show in folder. And then pasted everything from my old firefox data folder into that. And nothing worked. Any help????

Is there any way to make it so YouTube stops having its videos stutter and freeze a bit whenever I watch them via Firefox on my PC? I've tried doing everything I can. I have turned off smooth scrolling, enabled V-Sync for Firefox using Nvidia Control Panel, and much more. Nothing has helped so far. I have even used other browsers but they have issues too. And, my frames aren't dropping at all which is even weirder since it kind of feels like that is also what may be happening here. If anyone can help, please do so! Thanks!

The results of searches are always dominated by US sites. I live in Ireland and sites from Ireland, Europe generally, Australia, India, Middle East, are more relevant to me. Is there a search term such as "Not US"? I don't want to exclude America totally, just push those results further down the list.

I tried opening my outlook email which was supposed to redirected me to my school outlook site. Usually It worked when I do that but for some reason now it doesn't work. I tried opening it in my other browsers and it works. Only Firefox couldn't open it.

I found this site https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1028755 and i tried to do the steps on how to fix it, but it still didn't work. I still couldn't go in the site. Is there any way for me to be able to access it again? what should I do?

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.

Not sure about my question, except that things have disappeared from my screen, hidden icons, also my list of 'saved' pages, ( they were on a line underneath the google box), where I can drag important 'saved' pages, for reference, have also disappeared. Also the hidden icons are now doubled in size! How can I fix this, please? I am using Firefox as my browser & am using WIN 10. Thanks from an old person!

I want to have two Firefox accounts. One for Work and one for home. On my account I was using one of my home email accounts as a primary and another home email as a secondary. I added my work email address and and made it the primary and removed my home address that was the original primary for this account. Can I now start a new account with that home email or will it not be available to use since it was once a primary for the other account?

This is the 3rd time trying to post my question. When I open some of your automated replies which do not help, and try to go back, my question disappears. The latest update was irrelevant to my usage, so I resisted uploading it. In trying to get rid of the frequent reminder to update, I apparently did load the update. Now it takes longer to load my email, or switch to my wife's email. She is not happy, which makes me unhappy. Can that update be reversed?
