My bookmark directories have doubled - meaning I have 2 of each directory. Also, within bookmark directories I am seeing the saved webpages duplicating or, in some cases, tripling. This is making it difficult to use Firefox.

In the last 24 hours, the body of a gmail will not load. I can see all the emails that have come in but when you click on the email the body is empty, only the subject line shows up. I use gmail from the firefox browzer. When I try this in Chrome the email is fine. I can also see the emails on my phone. I contact Google and that is how we diagnosed the browser to be the issue.

I've already cleared my cache.  ;-)

I'm not getting a crash report, it just closed on random and whenever I started it up, it closed again.

Is this an issue that others are having with Firefox for Windows 8.1 or is it a virus I should be looking out for?

When typing on websites such as facebook and on several other sites, if I press the "A" key the focus will be removed from the input box and the next available dropdown box will open with nothing selected. This has been an ongoing problem on Firefox for Ubuntu, I have tried another keyboard and another browser so it seems to only be firefox.

Hey there! I've been struggling to solve this problem. Basically the dropdown URL, 'Remember this password' popup and menu list sporadically open while using Firefox. It usually starts after I've clicked on the menu/typed in a URL etc. These menus hang on the screen after Firefox has been minimized as well.

I've tried Safe Mode, disabling plugins and refreshing Firefox, none of which have worked.

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

I've attached a screenshot of the URL/menu hanging on the screen after Firefox is minimized.

Thank you.

When I put a topic to search on, I then go to sort on latest hour report and all articles are given back. The range of the articles go from weeks to months. this did not used to happen. If there was nothing in the last hour, nothing would be displayed. Same goes if I sort articles posted today. I see all articles and not sorted in latest to oldest.

FF superb with multi-tabs often open until Win10+other May updates; HDD now soon constantly active + tab hover summaries all show the same- until system restart

The above repeatedly now brings up the yellow bar message that a web page is slowing loading (wait vs close) or various apps open show 'not responding' (e.g. LibreOffice Writer mostly used) though do so after ponderous wait. Problem then persists if other apps are closed, leaving only FF running. The problem seems to build relatively soon after each restart when the HDD starts persistent activity even when nothing much being actively used. Previously would leave system running for weeks before any signs of restart being preferable. Thorough scans, check on drive capacity, file integrity and fragmentation levels, clearing cookies and site data, etc don't reveal anything amiss. It could of course be unrelated to FF such as if any conflict between Bitdefender and Win10 inbuilt security though none reported. Open tabs are typically held over a restart. restarts can be quite slow as though some temp cache being cleared.

Very sluggish performance, scrolling or changing tabs etc. There are 7 "Firefox CP Content" processes running, each about 800 MB but I've seen them go to maybe 1.3 GB. I'm thinking that swapping that much memory takes a long time, so maybe if I force them to be no mor then 500 MB It might help.

Can't find a Preference for "cache size" anymore - why not Content Process Limit is maxed out at 7.

I would begin an address bar/URL entry like "FAC" and it would autocomplete as "FACEBOOK.COM" and I would just hit [ENTER] or "FOX" would become "FOXNEWS.COM", then I would have to hit [ENTER]. Those choices still appear in a drop-down list but it was faster when the URL automatically filled. I had this functionality until the update to 62.0 this week. Can I restore this function in the configs?

Browser tabs often do not load in the background after updating to Firefox 62.0. (I have confirmed that the value is listed as "true" in the browser.tabs.remote.autostart section of about;config as suggested in a previous post) Further, when I click on the tabs and wait, those tabs are slow to load or fail to load.

The only work around that I have found is to fully close the browser and relaunch. Sometimes this resolves the issue and other times have to re-start it several times. But this is not practical solution as it takes too much time and interrupts my work.

I do not have any extentions installed (not even a single one) and I am using the default theme.
