Has anyone noticed that many websites that use google tracking and analytics seem to work a lot slower on firefox than on chrome? I know most sites have some form on google tracking on them but some in particular work a lot slower on firefox than on chrome. In particular udemy.com, as well as my.onexamination.com I feel this is an issue due to firefox privacy containers, as the tracking on these websites is trying to get information which firefox is denying it, causing a delay in resolution. I prefer firefox but I am starting to use chrome for such websites. Any way I can speed up things on firefox and avoid chrome altogether?

On Ubuntu, FFDE can be configured to

1. Auto-update - but it just displays a message saying that it cannot update

2. Download updates and request permission to install them - all it does is display a message saying a new update is available

I think this all stems from the fact that FFDE at present has to be manually installed on Ubuntu. Why this is so, I cannot fathom - maybe someone here has an answer to why open sourced op system users are inconvenienced by Firefox.

It's feasible to script an update procedure to Ubuntu for FFDE. But this will not stop the annoying (every 2 hours) pop-ups about new updates being available - even when there is no new update there . . .

Maybe FFDE could simply stop automatic update reminders altogether. Users can decide (or script) for themselves if they want to update.

Hello Hello,


I have an addon that makes my bookmarks open in new background tabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-bookmarks-in-a-new-tab/). This works in all but one instance. If I am already on the "New Tab" page, the bookmark opens in that tab. Is there any way to make the bookmark open in a background tab while I am on the new tab page? Thanks!

As shown in the picture, my GPU#1 is active, but the GPU#2 I want to use is not active, how do I make GPU#2 active?

Also: when will WebRender be active?

Hello, I use 2 monitors if one of them has a live stream from Facebook then there are such flashes on the primary monitor while browsing. But only if Firefox is open on the primary monitor.

Following the deprecation of the FTP protocol in Firefox I have, as a workaround, set Excel to open all ftp links in Firefox for me. However, ideally, I would like a custom PowerShell script to handle all ftp links for me in Firefox. But to do so you would have to pass arguments to an application (in this case PowerShell) in handlers.json file. I guess that is not possible, or am I wrong here?
