The sidebar that is brought up by clicking on the sidebar button normally shows whatever you choose on its dropdown menu (Bookmarks, History, or synced tabs). And it used to be, if you choose Bookmarks on that menu, it shows bookmarks the next time you open it. But since a few weeks, it is always showing History when clicked, even though I only ever use it for Bookmarks. Is there any way to stop this behaviour?

Trying to use a virtual terminal for my credit card processing for my business but firefox is not giving access to share location to the site even after I have manually allowed location sharing. This is the message I receive when I try to use the terminal: Sorry, we can’t load Virtual Terminal. We couldn't access your location. To use Virtual Terminal, allow Clover dashboard to know your location on your browser, then refresh the page How do I get this corrected?

Hi, I've just reinstalled Windows on my computer and I've logged in to Firefox to sync my bookmarks. My bookmarks from my previous Firefox install are still in the folder marked "Bookmarks Toolbar", but when I try to show the toolbar itself they are nowhere to be found. When I try to customize my browser layout I can't find the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" and instead the "Import bookmarks" option is available. I can't seem to get my bookmarks into the toolbar itself.

Hello, i have at this moment TWO versions off ff in use. my standard install wont open any file on the LOCAL drive AND severall BUTTONS are not working so now i use the 'standalone' version that just opdated to 87, nice but the OLD version 78ers is now broken or hacked

i tried to look up profile.js etc but perhaps on debian those migth have a different name ? i noticed that with other progs and configs aswell. is it the permisions.ini file ?

the general.config.obscure_value is NOW 0, but WAS 13

i hope there is a simple solution. if i continue with 87 and delete 78 , what will happen? after RE-install off 87esr al still is blocked. C

Firefox brainless huge memory usage

Hi to All I am user of firefox on several windows 10 computers, probably 7 different computers. I want to point out the huge memory usage in firefox on absolutely different computers and I want to resolve this brainless problem. At beginning, probably in 2016 I began to notice big memory usage in firefox with many of tabs opened, probably over 100... yes, 100 tabs is too much but even so, memory usage seemed inappropriate to me, especially when before it working on computers with low memory installed. I started solving huge memory usage by restarting firefox, usually killing firefox through taskmanager on windows. But about a year ago I started using Firefox on several computers for loading some pages and I programmed automations of some tasks on this pages. This tasks includes clicking on buttons on pages, entering values and loading new links, subpages.... This all always in one tab and in one firefox window and after some time, firefox on every computers start using over 3GB of memory, in one tab and one window??? It is galactic amount. Of course, processes on computers was crashing. Depending on the page, that was severed from 12 hours to several days. Therefore I started some researching in this and I tried to reduce memory usage by settings in about:config: browser.sessionstore.max_serialize_back = 0 browser.sessionstore.max_serialize_forward = 0 browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo = 0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo = 0

browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers = 1 browser.sessionhistory.max_entries = 1 but this last parameter have no effect, why??? After this settings my solution working, but it is little bit breaknecking: After some steps in automation I open new tab and close prewious tab and load page again and memory usage drops from 1,5GB to approx 500MB (Due to browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo = 0) Excuse me but this behaviour is very terrible.

browser.sessionhistory.max_entries I trying to reduce to 1 but this setting have no effect (I can back to new tab page), sometimes take effect only in just running instance when I change it and number must be higher than 5 or 10? Sometimes take effect, sometimes no, but after restart firefox again without effect. Due to this nonsense memory accumulation per each one tab I want to tweak firefox on my working computer. I not need galactic number - 50!!! or even more? pages in "back button" in memory per each tab, and there are no way to reduce it without restart, only way to release memory is set browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo to 0, open new tab, and close old tab and then memory usage very drop...

Next, I searched in about:config by keyword "session" and found browser.sessionstore.cleanup.forget_closed_after default equals to 1209600000 which means 14 days... oh so galactic... Normally firefox is unusable after few days without restarting, developers recommends to restart firefox for memory free up, but default value for this option sets to this huge number? Are they kidding users or what? After all, with this setting and behaviour, it almost never applies. And how much such nonsenses does firefox still contain? I am very angry for this several-years lasting memory issue because firefox is my favourite web browser. According to what I found on the internet, developers stubbornly ignoring or refuse to find effective solution but it would be so simple. Probably only memory release button would suffice, which would remove all cached pages. But "true release/free up memory button". User would had to accept, that all back/reopen actions will be discarded. No dummy/parody button in about:memory. ooooh "minimize memory usage" which free up probably max of 15%, normally about 5% of used memory. I tried "firemin" too, but this is next parody... this rapidly decrease of memory which appears as super, but causes totally pause of processes on page and when you need do some action on page, another time is needed for reloading(wake up) the almost same amount of memory as before minimization by this program - in short, this is suitable just only for temporary minimization of memory usage, something like pause firefox.

Therefore please, Can someone really help? (Not kidding like: about:memory, firemin or other unusable "nosolutions") This problem has been consuming me for so long that I quietly started to think that the only way to resolve it is to reprogram and recompile my own firefox, but that is quite unrealistic for me.

Firefox Permissions

When I go to the ABC News website an icon in the URL slot tells me I have granted this website additional permissions. I don't grant additional permissions. I don't even accept cookies. I clean my computer after EVERY browsing session with CCleaner. I am thoroughly disgusted with the incessant onslaught of cyber intrusion on my personal privacy. I don't know what additional permissions I supposedly granted because I would never consciously grant anyone any permission. My question is how do I remove these additional permissions that I miraculously granted? Now I have blocked automatic play of audio/video on the website. I see that as a removal of a permission not a granting. Is this why I am seeing a granted additional permissions icon? Or am I just going to have to stop using ABC's website? Any guidance you can offer is appreciated.

Hi,

The "Take a Screenshot" function is excellent.

When I take a screenshot and click "Copy" to copy it to the clipboard, a pop-up above the taskbar is shown: "Shot Copied Your shot has been copied to the clipboard. Press CTRL-V to paste."

It is displayed for approx. 10 seconds unless the X in the top-right corner of the pop-up is clicked. Is there a way to perform this function but suppress the pop-up (e.g. in about:config)?

Thank you.

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.
