Page refreshing after form submission leads to an outdated webpage

I am a user of the http://loza.nazwa.pl/zakonacporady/forum/ forum, based on the my little forum (https://mylittleforum.net/) script.

In the last days, after one of the most recent Firefox updates, the forum users observed a strange page refresh behaviour: when a user posts a new message, posts a change to a message or resets the unread messages by using a button on the webpage - she/he gets the outdated view of the forum. Without her/his changes.

She/he must explicitely reload the forum page (Ctrl+R) to get the new content.

Is this a result of some newly introduced pageloading optimisations? If so, is it possible to switch the optimisations off by a Firefox settings (globally or just for the webpage)?

Best regards, D. Wroblewski

Hi,

I want to disable the annoying update notification popup that firefox keep throwing in my face. I have searched the web and the forum and it seems like every version of firefox has a different method for doing this.

I am presently using version 80.0.1

Does anybody know a way to stop these popups in this version?


I know that this forum is run by volunteers - but a message for the developers: LEAVE IT ALONE You had a nice little browser until you tried to make it the answer to a maiden's prayer for everyone. Now you have a buggy, annoying piece of bloatware that is just pssing people off. Nice work bucko.

This is a little hard to describe, but pressing sideways on the wheel on my thinkpad mouse changes what is displayed on the screen. It appears to go back and forth through the history list, depending on whether the wheel is pushed to the right or left. Not talking about rolling / scrolling with the wheel, but pushing sideways on it.

How can I stop this?

mousewheel.default.action is currently = 1 mousewheel.with_shift.action = 4

Not sure what these settings do, but somebody suggested them.

Thanks

Issue #1 I have the automatic updates turned off, but Firefox occasionally updates anyway. How can I prevent this from happening?

Issue#2 This is somewhat related to issue #1. I turned off the automatic updates specifically because I did not want Quantum, but Firefox updated automatically, despite the automatic updates being turned off.. I have an older system, and it cannot handle running five processes for Firefox at one time. As a result, my system becomes increasingly slower as time goes by. As running multiple serves absolutely no discernible purpose, is there any way to prevent Firefox from running multiple processes?

Issue #3 Firefox recently updated automatically (again) without my permission, and since the most recent update, the pop up blocker is not working properly, specifically with Yahoo. It is blocking images, and windows that I bring up, but is not blocking what it is supposed to block, and will not let me add an exception for Yahoo. How can I fix this?

I am a Computer Science major, and have been using Firefox since it came out, but I am going to make a change if I can't fix these issues. Firefox is becoming more of a hassle than it is worth.

Hi, I'v grown very fond of FireFox for a very long time however, I DO NOT like the idea of your asking me to save my passwords even though I thought that my selecting the 'remember this response' for the future does not work and in which I indicated NO. Can you not be like the other guy? I choose your browser mainly because you don't treat User like we're stoopid, but now you're looking like Google and Microsoft. Uggggghhhhh. Is there something I can do to not receive this prompt. The answer will always be NO!

I asked such a question the day before yesterday, but none answered me I still use window 7 32 bit and I never want to update The new version ( V 98.01 ) is not compatible with Window 7 A black screen is shown just I open the Firefox browser I thought it is virus, but it is not so. Now I am sure of the problem I uninstalled the new version and changed for an old version ( V 80.01 ) and the black screen is never shown The black screen which I complain about= crashing of the browser because it is not covenant to Window 7

2- I changed the update to  (   Check for updates but let you choose to install them )  and the problem is ended but a message about updating still appears in the right corner  need me close each time. 

How can I get rid finally from update message in the toolbar ? In V 80.01 there is no choice ( never check for update )

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Hello all, I've yet to test this in great detail. But, it would appear that Firefox is running super slow. It's using about 3GB of ram out of my 16GB (Seems low imho).

When opening websites like Facebook, videos, the message box etc lags. On YouTube videos can lag, and other sites that have elements that popup etc seem to lag.

I only run an AdBlock, and it's even disabled on the pages that lag. These issues aren't present in Google Chrome or Edge. In fact, Facebook is super responsive in Chrome.

I've tried various things to solve it mentioned on this forum, including entering some urls to access more advanced settings which hasn't worked.

Thanks alot.

Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!

Huge memory leak from FF is causing my computer to shut down

Hello all,

I have been experiencing a critical issue with FF for more than a year now and even though I reported it via the FF crash reporter numerous times it never got fixed so I figured I would report it here.

The issue could be summarized as follow: browsing the website mixcloud.com triggers a memory leak from FF that eventually causes my whole computer to shut down if FF cannot be "force[d] to quit" in time.

Here is a more detailed description I sent to Mixcloud support last year:

"Often times when I open a new page/tab on the website the loading freezes and after a few seconds a yellow warning notification pops up on the upper part of the screen asking: "a web page is slowing down your browser. What would like to do?” with the two following options available: "Stop it" or "Wait". If I click "stop it" the loading will indeed stop and I just have to refresh the page again to continue browsing normally. The troubles begin if I click "wait" or do nothing: the overall memory usage of Firefox will then increase seemingly exponentially and after only a few minutes the whole system will become unresponsive and I will have to hard reboot my computer or it will reboot by itself. This is extremely annoying as you can imagine as every time that happens I lose all unsaved data in the process! Strangely enough this issue sometimes even occur without any notification displayed or freeze happening in the first place: I would be browsing a few Mixcloud pages then switching to another website and after a couple of minutes I would notice that the memory usage is increasing although no Mixcloud page is open any longer... In both cases the only solution I found is to quit/force to quit Firefox as soon as possible to prevent it (and the system) to become unresponsive. Closing the application always resolves the issue and I can see the memory usage of the overall system subsequently dropping sometimes from up to 95% to 40% in the Activity Monitor app. Again I would like to stress that I have been experiencing this issue ONLY on Mixcloud and that I have no other memory related issue on my computer nor with Firefox in general."

Mixcloud support reply at the time: "this is linked to some issues we've been experiencing but our team are busy working on a fix for". 10 months later nothing changed...

The same issue happened again this very morning: I opened a Mixcloud link from google results and even though I immediately closed it, 5 minutes later the RAM usage was at 93% and I struggled during 10 minutes to "force to quit" FF as the whole computer was becoming increasingly unresponsive. I can provide a crash report from this morning but would prefer not to display it publicly.

Please investigate this leak. It is becoming more and more frustrating to deal with as the time goes by.

Hello, I would like to know how I can avoid having to enter an account authorization code everytime I sign into my laptop. Everytime my laptop hibernates or shuts down I come to find that though I login first try (with password), EVERY SINGLE TIME I for some reason have to go retrieve a code from my email to complete sign in. This is a huge pet peeve and I want to know what to do.

Hello


When it comes to add-ons, then I add three of four at once or the same purpose, I try them all out, decide if I want to keep any of them, and then remove the ones I see that do not serve my target. All normal.


I know that it requires permission in order to have an add-on show in Private Browsing, that's done.

Now I had 8 add-ons on the toolbar, I disabled two or three of them so I can try two new ones. I did not like the new ones, so I just enabled the ones I had disabled, which where previously showing in the toolbar, all of this in Private Browsing having the permission of showing them.


As I enabled the add-ons again, they are not showing anymore in the toolbar..!!

Okay, I removed them and re-added them..not showing. I also did: not allow in Private Mode, then re-allowed..not showing. I simply restarted the browser in both normal and Private Mode, and yet not showing.. I also restarted my pc, and retried all previous steps again

  • This mainly happened as I removed the extension from toolbar, then added it again.

Still also 90% of the time, just disable then enable again, and only a few are showing again. Either when disabled then re-enabled or when removed then re-added*


So, what to do ?
