After starting Firefox. If I navigate to a page to soon it jumps back to the start page again (about:blank for me). Like it's restaring again somewhat. Just before the page is reste there seems like a windows opening in the bottom right but it closes before I manage to see content. Only add-on I have i uBlock Origin. Do you have any idea why this is happening. Is there some log I can look at or enable to see what is really happening? 73.0b7 x64 on Windown 10

Hello I have a problem... when Windows 10 starts, Firefox starts automatically and this is very annoying. I have read this article where it is explained how to solve the problem, but it DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM, Firefox continues to start automatically when Windows 10 starts.

The article is this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-starts-automatically-when-i-restart-window

I have changed the following entry:

toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart = false

...but it does not solve the problem. My Firefox starts automatically with all the tabs opened. I have several pinned tabs in my firefox, for Facebook, Instagram, etc. So... I shut down my computer, and when I turn it on, there I have firefox again starting automatically.

Any idea about how may I solve this? Thanks

I had been reading the Firefox review on "Surveillance Capitalism" on 2/25/2020. Then I had installed the Firefox add on "Facebook Container", and shut down. On 2/26/2020 the links to privacy issues that had previously appeared at the bottom of the Firefox opening page disappeared. As an end user, not an IT expert, are these issues related?

I am using Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I have noticed the following.

When I quit the Firefox app (no background activity), and I click on a link that I receive in an email (from my Mail app), then Firefox opens 2 windows. One is empty and the second leads to the desired link.

On the other hand, if I don't quit the Firefox app but simply close it (x symbol), then when I click on a link it open correctly in a single window.

I'm having problems with my outlook.com mail boxes*** and an expert on the Microsoft Community suggests that I sign on using Firefox. I already have a Firefox account name & password but when I tried to sign in the Community here, Firefox didn't recognise me and I've had to set up this account. (1) What should I do to be able to log into the Microsoft Community with my Firefox account? (2) Which Firefox url should I save to get back here with one click? (I had to use Bing to get here.) Hoping you can help. Thanks

What is firefox's cookie limit and how does it handle corrupt cookies store

I've been digging into an issue about the "A web page is slowing down your browser," and it seems that the most frequent explanation for this is corrupt cookies/cache. However, the issue wasn't repeatable on my site. After some digging, I found that its possible for a corrupt `cookies.sqlite` if the max file size has been reached and a suggestion that FF automatically resets this `cookies.sqlite` store when this happens.

I suspect that this issue happened when the user maxed out their cookies, causing a corrupt `cookies.sqlite` file. Then, when they restarted FF, their store had been cleared and they had no problems.

However, I cannot find any documentation about FF behavior when in handling corrupt cookies or resetting the `cookies.sqlite` file. I'm looking for some concrete answers. What is FF's cookie store limit, and what is its behavior (if any) when the store is maxed?

Worth mentioning, this was FF on Linux. I don't know the specs beyond that.
