Don't you think that if browsers rehabilitate a native "RSS one click subscribe" feature, with better UX (RSS actions/reader nicely integrated to the browser) it could revolutionize the way we subscribe to content updates, removing the need to rely on emails/newsletters in a lot of cases (then being more eco-friendly)? Users would receive content updates notifications directly in the browser, their feeds being synchronized through their browser account, etc.

Web developpers would just have to place subscription buttons: <input type="subscribe">

And a W3C Standard would unify how browsers should implement the "Subscription" feature, focusing on UX (I feel this is the point influencing usage data for the most part, RSS still being a tech-savvy thing).

Feeds handling was removed in 2018 in Firefox.

I've had major stability issues since this update on my Mac (version 10.13.2). Tabs will become unresponsive and show the spinner icon and sometimes the whole browser become unresponsive. I've tried disabling add-ons, refresh, and even creating new profiles. Sometimes I see a process in activity monitor like Firefox Developer EditionCP Web Content or Firefox Developer EditionCP Privileged Content not responding and can force quit a single tab. Sometimes doing that crashes the browser.

I'd really prefer to keep this as my default browser, but it's not looking likely anymore.

I have 5 pinned tabs lately, and many unpinned (20-100s). Recently one of the pinned tabs, Twitter specifically, has been unpinning itself at random(?) intervals. I can re-pin it just fine, it's just a little odd. None of the others do this.

I am running with Tree Style Tabs and per-site Containers (but not Twitter or FB specific container extensions). And other extensions like ABP and NS, but I doubt they relate, while these might?

Hello,

excuse me, this is a translation.

Could you tell me, please, if there is finally a solution for the bookmarks that are in gray and not yellow as before, because gray is very unpleasant and if possible we can change the color of the bookmarks, thank you.

Cordially.

My browser recently updated to 83.0 and the search engine switched to Bing. When I go to Preferences - Search, the default search engine is listed as Google. Even if type something in the bar and then click on the Google icon, it searches on Bing. If I click on the DuckDuckGo icon, it searches on DuckDuckGo. How can I switch my search engine to Google?

Hello everyone,

I had the SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER problem for a few months. I just reinstalled completely Windows and the problem was gone. Now 2 days later I get this message again when I want to go on sites like google, amazon, youtube, etc.

I don't use any antivirus but I runned a scan with Windows Defender and Clam and found nothing.

I just upgraded to the new Firefox relase and the problem remains.

Read all the articles about this issue and found no solution. The problem doesn't appear with other web browsers such as Microsoft Edge.

I have been building websites using Firefox for a good 10 years now, but over the last year or so clearing the cache has become more and more frustrating and it's making Firefox unusable for developing websites.

Basically, I am making edits to a website's style sheet and uploading it and the new style sheet is not then being loaded in Firefox.

I have spent the last hour+ looking for a definitive answer to this problem.

I am using both methods I know for clearing cache

1) click on the burger and go to Privacy and Security / go to cookies and site data / click clear data / leave "cached web content" clicked on (switch off "Cookies and Site data") / click clear

2) hold command / shift / R

Most of the time it seems both these methods don't seem to work as the browser won't load the new style sheet.

I know the style sheet has uploaded as when I test the site in Safari (I might have to use the Empty Caches function once) and the new style sheet loads straight away.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, or may be I am missing something fundamental that will cure this problem - all I can say is, it is very, very, very annoying - and really wastes time when you're trying to work.

Is anyone else getting these problems and is there a quick and easy way to be ensuring the cached css file does not keep loading.

btw I also used a private window and was still getting the same problem.

I like using Firefox and don't really want to use another browser as they are rubbish in other ways, but feel like I'm getting to a point where I have no option if I don't find out how to solve this problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards

D

For the past week I continue to get page is not responding, stop it or wait message across the top. Allllllll pages, not just social media. it only happens in FireFox. I have ran trouble shooters, reset, etc. Same problem after running for an hour.

Since the last update. Or is that a coincidence?

it takes me tooooo long to get a job done I do not want to use any other browser but starting to think I may need to. FireFox eats up as much CPU and Memory as Google Chrome, which I stopped using because it cause my system to nearly crash. It ate up so much resources.

Yes, ran without plugins. Same issue. yes I run two to three pages at a time. Yes tried doing one at a time.

Same.

Frustrated.
