Hur gör jag för att förhindra att web-sidor eller script gör att facebook låser sig/går långsamt? Först märker jag att det börjar gå långsamt sen dyker en gul ruta upp som säger att det är en web-sida eller ett script som gör att det går långsamt och frågar om jag vill stoppa den. Jag trycker alltid på "stoppa den" men problemet kvarstår. Det enda jag kan göra är att stänga facebook och sen öppna på nytt, men det tar inte lång tid innan samma problem uppstår igen.

I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS. I wasn't having any issues with Firefox until it crashed unexpectedly and showed the Mozilla Crash Reporter. Now I can't launch Firefox and only receive the Crash Reporter. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox from the command line. If I attempt to uninstall Firefox from the Ubuntu Software GUI, I get an error that it can not be uninstalled because of unmet dependencies (although it doesn't list any missing dependencies). I have submitted a crash report with Crash ID: bp-fe22d740-064d-4990-a5ee-13c080210227.

Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

I was configuring some update on my windows, until it broke and I was unable to get anything out. Everything had to be formatted. While formatting I didn't remember about the codes, and when I tried to log in my account, it says I have entered wrong password. I do have some guess of what the password may be but I am not sure. So, what I do have right now: Email Authenticator

Is there a way for me to recovery my old password(not firefox, but the ones stored) using just them? If not, is there any limit of me entering wrong passwords? I think if given enough time, I might be able to crack it.

Hello,

I had a 300mpbs connection for download, but was never able to get past 200mbps. But now today, on installing a 1gig connection, I still cannot get past 200mbps. The installer blamed it on my PC's network card. But I just ran the same speed test with Microsoft Edge 64-bit, and I was able to get past 600mbps. So clearly, this problem is isolated to Firefox.

I am using the latest Firefox 32-bit. I have no addons installed. I am running Firefox on Windows 7.

After typing this post, I thought the 32-bit Firefox was probably causing the issue, so I installed the Firefox 64-bit, and the speed increased by 50mbps to 250mbps.

Thank you.

Many extensions ask for access to your entire browsing activity. While many extensions claim they are not doing so, this is not a technical restriction, but a policy restriction of their own.

In Chrome, there is a option within the browser to restrict extensions to operate within certain domains. For example, you could say that Honey is only allowed to run on *.amazon.com domains.

Is there a way to configure this option within FireFox? If not, what's the best way to request this feature be added? There are a number of extensions like Honey that are helpful for ecommerce and product research, but I want to provide a technical restriction to what data they can collect from the browser by restricting them to specific domains.

Thanks! Moose

It appears that Firefox 87.0b3 version has removed the Library - Pocket List menu item. Yet, through the about:config options, has retained the ability to activate the 'Save to Pocket' address bar icon.

This makes no sense as there is now no option to have a 'Pocket List' item selection. At least I couldn't find an option for this. That is without adding another extension.

Having the 'Save' option without the 'List' option is counter intuitive.

The Library-->Pocket List Menu item should be restored.

Thanks.

If I try to edit the saved loging to manually add ww.abc.com/admin/ ( user / password ) it says the user name already exists.

The tab bar should distinguish the active tab (in part) by removing its bottom border. When I restart Firefox, the tab bar displays correctly but before long that bottom border of the active tab reappears. Changing to a different theme doesn't help. All I can think of is that perhaps I have too many add-ons or bookmarks installed. (I currently have just under 50 add-ons.) What can I do to keep that bottom border off the active tab?

Updated to Firefox 86.0. MacOS. If I now attempt to access my router using its local address (192.x.x.1) it simply doesn't happen. I've allowed pop-ups for the sign in window - although it never needed it before. Tried http and https. Also have a bookmark for it which no longer works. All I get is a blank tab, yet there's some endless communication happening according to Menu Meters Rx/Tx display. If I do the same as always using Safari I can log into the router exactly as I always have done. Why? What has been changed? What has Firefox blocked? Help please.

I just updated Firefox on my Mac to Firefox 86.0 and the app itself became named Firefox 2. When it is running the name on dock is now Firefox 2.

I tried to change it back to plain Firefox (removing the space character and 2 from its name in the Application folder).

When I did that an relaunched it the display looked a bit weird and all of my bookmarks were gone!

Changing it back to Firefox 2 made it well again. I have never, ever seen Firefox do this.
