I am unable to open Gmail in Firefox. This has only just occurred - until now it has worked perfectly. On trying to open Gmail I now get the following message.

"Corrupted Content Error

The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected.

Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

No other site has been affected, and I can still open Gmail in Internet Explorer, {but I prefer not to use IE for emails

Any help solving this would be really appreciated

I've an online service where I download large XML files. After clicking on the download button the page is loading for a long time (file is generated on demand), than a new window/tab is opened with the download URL and is loading for a long time. Than Firefox crashes: "Gah. Your tab just crashed."

How do I get info what the problem is? Is the file to big for the XML renderer? Or any other?

I use private browsing in Windows 10 on my laptop. I have unticked the Provide Search Suggestions and the boxes underneath but I still get a blue box under the address bar repeating what I type. Then a white box appears under that with the same info. Extremely annoying. How do I stop these suggestions appearing? Thanks.

I have a Macbook Pro with a touch bar, and in Safari you can open a new tab and switch tabs with the touch bar. I was wondering if Firefox (or an extension) had similar touch bar compatibility? It feels like there is something really missing compared to Safari, and the touch bar has been a thing for a while now so I was hoping somebody had already made a solution.

For the last few months (starting with an upgrade to new version), Firefox has asked for my master password immediately upon startup (or as soon as startup is complete), regardless of what web page I am viewing. This does not seem right; it should prompt for master password only when a site that I visit requires a site password.

Another recent post on the support forums advises going to security settings, and disabling the option for "use master password." That's not right, either.

Tried to opened Firefox this morning. Immediately received message box that "Firefox was updating, please wait". When Firefox window opened I did not see my Homepage. Instead there was a window asking me to launch POCKET via Firefox, GOOGLE or email. I was surprised because I had no idea what "POCKET" was. I clicked email but the next screen gave me no more information about what POCKET was so I backed out and opened another window with my HOMEPAGE. When I next clicked BOOKMARKS I discovered my BOOKMARKS folders were all empty----- no bookmark links at all. I tried "Restore Firefox" - (nothing) and then "Restore Bookmarks" ( also nothing.) I am devastated...... Please Help

When I exit Firefox, restart it, and attempt to save file / page, Firefox offers to save it to a download directory that is different than the one specified under options.

I have confirmed numerous times that the proper download directory is specified in the Options.

Of course, after correcting the download directory, everything is saved to the proper location until the next restart.

I would appreciate any suggestions. I am not certain that I want to take the chance of refreshing the browser.

I'm using firefox and want to analyse the request/response of a page.

Is there a way to open the Developer tools - namely "Network" - before entering/opening the page (Automatic opening second tab).

Otherwise it would not be possible to track the traffic correct.

Hello, I recently moved to Firefox from another browser and I am very pleased with it. My usage is that my computer remains on 24/7 with the browser open. I saw a paragraph in the help docs:

"Firefox's memory usage may increase if it's left open for long periods of time. A workaround for this is to periodically restart Firefox."

However this can be inconvenient when you have several tabs open that are logged in to various sites for work, which also retain state which is not restored when the browser is restarted.

Over a few days the memory "leaking" (?) is mounting up significantly as per attached. In summary:

Pre close - system RAM usage 12.5GB Post close browser - system RAM usage 8.1GB (4.4GB drop!!) Re-open browser with same tabs - system RAM usage 8.7GB (actually 9.0GB after all tab views were accessed and put back into the state they were in before closed)

From this simple test I can see that 12.5GB - 9GB = 3.5GB was hogged by the browser and not actually required.

As a developer I am interested to understand the reason for this memory leaking. Is there anything I can do while the browser is open to free it up? Or cause it to not "leak" in the first place?

Thanks,

Andrew

Upgraded to Firefox 63.0 and all of a sudden started to see extreme sluggishness on every website I visited, especially Facebook, YouTube and some auction sites. I played around with the security settings, because this is what I saw changes in from my previous browser version to this new one, and that did not correct the sluggishness. I removed 63.0 and went back to my last browser 62.0.3 and bam, sluggishness gone. What changes were made that could have made this occur?

I've fiddled all the about:config upgrade settings I can find, still my firefox nags every day to up upgrade. Unless I can stop the nag I will change browser. I *never* want to upgrade. Reason: macx have a bizare DNS and at the slightest whim MyDNS is replaced with TheirDNS Every release of firefox seems to 'enhance' using the URL bar to search. Everytime mac's DNS goes haywire I go to eg sandypit.home and get a Google search for 'sandypit.home'.

Why on earth URL bar is used to search on a desktop machine is bizare. I find no about:config setting that says "search with url bar TRUE/FALSE"

after refreshing Firefox to fix a rather obnoxious problem I was having with seemingly-corrupted stylesheets (pages would load without styling, even when "View > Page Style > Basic Page Style" was set; clearing my browser cache didn't fix it), I noticed that while most of my settings were carried over by the Refresh Firefox feature's on-startup sequence, my search engine options were not included. Is there a specific file that stores these, or am I going to have to go back to each individual site (a total of 8-12 if I'm not mistaken) and reinstall the search engines 'manually'?
