I used to get a display in the middle of a "New Page" with Firefox - recent revisions have removed that and I only get a Google search bar at top of new page. Help is appreciated. What I am looking for is displayed in images from my Chrome browser - similar, but not like the way Firefox displayed it.

These are the pictures I get recently ... tiny. Micromised. Unsure if I accidentally hit a "micromise" button, but all of the sudden, the normal view became tiny.

Also, many a time by myself and others told: When browsing picture sites such as Deviantart, Pinterest, even Google Pictures, Firefox severely slows down up to even dead stop after a while. Though several versions have passed, this issue still remains.

Clearing Cache, or using DelTempDir/FlushDNS doesn't help at all, once it begins to slow, only full restart of FF helps, but this ain't always an option. It almost seems that the memory is filling up by the feeds of these sites, and just cannot be cleared, no matter what.

Using a Memory tool ALSO runs nowhere.

Please assist?

Thank you.

Just now, as I was in the middle of something, Firefox popped up a usage tip about tabs. I find this disruptive. Is there a way to turn these off? If I want to know how to do something, I'll look in the help.

It's fine when you create a new feature to display a tab when I first launch after an upgrade, or to have the Help menu show a Latest Features item, but please don't interrupt my work with pop-ups.

For the moment, I don't see anything in Preferences about this. Is there an about:config setting I can add to suppress this feature?

When I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode I can log into citibank. When I return to normal I cannot. I've turned one extension after another off. None of them seem to be causing the problem.

This all started when I created a container for Banking. it has been a problem ever since.

I remember using Firefox before and when I clicked a regular link , it would open it in the current tab, but when I used my MMB, it would open a new tab. I can get either one to work individually, but not at the same time. Is there a way to have both active at the same time?

With recent releases, I've started noticing that Firefox UI freezes seemingly randomly. When it does, the UI doesn't respond to interactions, and there's no visible change in the UI, either - for example, if I switch to a different tab after the UI froze, there's no visual sign of switch happening. However, if I were to alt-tab to another window, then then UI looks as if it had responded behind the scenes. I.e., the tab switch were somehow kept pending until at the point of alt-tab.

I've had this happened on two different machines, both running the latest version (106.0.1), but this was observed even with 105, I think.

FWIW, I'm on Linux; I've tried both with and without hardware acceleration. Unfortunately, I don't have consistent/sure reproducer; not have I observed any particular pattern of interaction that'd lead to this.

I was going to file a bug, but thought posting here before I do that.

Firefox just stropped working for me. Would be unable to load any pages after 5-10 minutes until I restarted the browser. No other troubleshooting worked so I had to refresh firefox and now my firefox private network add on is gone. All my other add ons are still there but I can't re-download private network without paying a subscription, even though I have had it installed for years. How do I access that add on? I don't understand why I would need to pay for something I already had and only lost becasue firefox malfunctioned.

Sometimes when I open Firefox, a new tab opens with the Bing search page. This happens irregularly, but I'd guess perhaps once a month or so.

I have Firefox configured to remember my previous session, and I always have tabs left over from the previous session. So I never see the homepage, but my homepage and new tab page are both configured to be "Firefox Home (default)".

I'm on Windows 10. I have checked my homepage config, about:addons and Installed Programs; there is no mention of Bing. When I type in the Firefox address bar or the search bar, the search uses Google, as I expect.

Any idea why I occasionally get bing.com opening up in a tab when I launch Firefox?

After making a jump to FF 105, my virtual bookmark function started landing on different places each time I invoked it, even though I wasn't changing the window.pageYOffset value. Now after updating to FF 106, where I had the option of setting that value using the onLoad option, the page remains absolutely blank until I confirm or reject the window.pageYOffset value. Since I cannot see where on the page I am positioned (because it won't finish loading) it is now useless. This tool had been my most frequently used function for many years as I could reposition to a desired location by merely pressing my home key. OnKeydown it would jump to the top of the page and onKeyUp, it would return me to virtual bookmarked position, no matter where I was on the page. For some of my pages, I would invoke it more than once in less than a minute. It was really useful!. (Now it is useless!) These problems happened immediately after each FF update.
