Please continue here: [/questions/1285975]
Using an Apple computer and Firefox 75.0 ... In in my toolbar (where the File, Edit, View options are), and I go to History > Recently Closed Tabs ... I see many recently opened tabs listed. How do I stop "Recently Closed Tabs" from accumulating? I want that list to always be clear.

Thank you.

I'm using a completely clean (reinstalled) version of firefox. I'm not logged into a profile. I'm still having the same problem.

If I go onto twitter for the first time, it loads fine and I can move around pages.

As soon as I leave the site, then return, none of the internal twitter timelines load - I get the twitter message 'something has gone wrong'.

If I delete all my cookies and revisit twitter, it works. But again, if I leave the site and come back immediately, the problem comes back and nothing loads.

Anyone experienced this/know what I can do?

Thanks

Firefox constantly hangs/freezes on Mac OS

Duplicate of /questions/976177 Firefox constantly freezes on my Mac, although I've installed the latest version and tried all suggested fixes - without success. (locking)]. aw

I'm using an iMac, system 10.9. My problem is that Firefox 25 launches correctly and displays Google (which I've chosen as my start page), but that whenever I go to to a web page, Firefox hangs/freezes. For instance I can go to the BBC site, but once there FF hangs/freezes. Then it won't respond to any clicking or commands, and I have to force-quit.

Firefox has even done this in the Mozilla help pages !

I've tried several other "fixes", all to no avail. Besides, a fix or workaround should not be necessary -it isn't with other browsers. And I've trashed FF more than once, doing a clean reinstall (yes, I've been careful to also trash any associated file, using Appcleaner).

The problem has been there in every version of FF I've tried in the last four years. Version 3.5 worked well but all the subsequent versions have caused this problem. Why ?

As I said, other browsers work, and do so without needing any "fixes". So they work, and so does my computer. The problem is with Firefox, that obviously has a flaw somewhere. I'd love to know what it is.

What I was able to do before FireFox 29 was to hide the blue folder icons in the Bookmarks Toolbar, leaving only the Name of the folder and the downward pointing arrow ∇.

I believe I was able to do that with a simple button or check box from View > Toolbars > Customize... but not, as I recall, with any extension or add-on. It seemed to be part of FireFox. Now, this feature has been thrown down Orwell's Memory Hole and I have been given some solutions that require manually editing a userChrome.css text file that is supposed to have some additional code added to some existing code to a file that I don't seem to have found using the advice given. That file is supposed to go into a Profile folder that apparently has a different name than simply Profile.

I have been given some advice stating "You can..." but I am not sure this is an adventure that will lead to a serious mistake or just the beginning of a long learning arc. I think I want the buttons back.

A serious answer would have all the steps. Yeah, I'm not going to learn on my own, because this is a feature that was removed and ought not to have been.

Firefox freezes for few seconds while syncing new bookmarks. Happens everytime I add a bookmark or when I chage a folder's place.

Everytime I bookmark some site, firefox syncs it right away, which is good in a way. But it takes a few seconds (around 5 secs) and whil FF syncs the whole window freezes. Means nothing responds anymore, not to a click nor to a roll over or scroll.

It's quite annoying actually.

So I'd say : FireFox should run this sync in background of other tasks, seamlessly.

If FF cannot run this sync in background of other tasks, is there a way to tell sync ton only sincronize just before quitting or such ?

OR, is there a way to quickly shut sync down and activate it back up when needed ?

Thanks for the answers to this time consumming problem.

I asked this question once already. Someone at Mozilla started to assist me then disappeared.

Plug-in is: SlingPlayer_Plugin_3.3.20.505

I cannot load it directly from the Slingbox page as I get the following error message: "Your SlingPlayer Web Plug-in may be disabled. Please enable the plug-in within your browser settings."

That is why i want to manually upload it.

Thank you.

I have a website that tracks the session and state of users as they traverse through the site. Several users can "work together" simultaneously. To test this cooperative functionality, I ran multiple Firefox profiles simultaneously on my computer, using Firefox's Profile Manager. After logging in as two users (one on each separate running Firefox instance), one of my Firefox instances still works, while the other one does not seem to track the session.

How do I create and run multiple Firefox instances to allow me to test the functionality of such sites? I believe this worked a few months ago. Perhaps this is a new bug?

I even tried running normal Firefox and Firefox Extended Support Release simultaneously, but I ran into the same error.
