Hi,

My firefox has been consuming lots of memory (and many CPU processes) for quite some time now.

I read that i can adjust the number of multiple content process, but somehow i am not seeing it inside about:preferences menu even after i checked 'Use hardware acceleration when available' option.

Do advise me on what should i do to improve my firefox speed?


Regards,

Frans

I had a similar problem last year when an auto update came through. After several suggestions didn't help I opted to reinstall a previous version and upgrade that. Now it's back again with the v94 update.

I've disabled ALL extensions. No help. Themes don't seem to make a difference. However, when I went to about:config and entered "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to make it true to allow chrome.css files to work it began immediately. Reset it to false and "X"s are back. Set config to TRUE and it screws up the "X"s. Again, all this is with all extensions off.

I hate the transparency of the tabs and menu bars so I need to set .css files. How else can I do it?

How to remove (for good) FF message window after screenshot

After I take a screenshot -- using the very handy FF command that now sits on my address bar -- a message box opens in the bottom right of the screen that says, Duh, "your shot was copied to the clipboard" and then gives instructions for pasting it. Although that seems to be fairly elemental information that is unnecessary, even if there is a good reason to keep it, must that message window always be in the same position? That is really a problem as it obscures one's ability to navigate on a page upon which he may be working. Look at the attachment. The FF window is covering the location where I want to put my cursor to work on that page that is in the background. In this case, I wanted to make sure the cursor was positioned in a different place for another screenshot I might put there (below the existing one).

Since I'm familiar with pasting or copying the screenshot and how to do that before this window opens, how can I remove for all screenshots, now and in the future, this window opening?

Thank you.

Hello, John aka Beer Gutt here.

A while ago (about three months), I moved my hard drive to a new PC with better parts. It has a better mother board, a better graphics card and twice the RAM. Anyway, since then Firefox hasn't worked the same. When i open Firefox, there will be random pieces of letters or words on a webpage just gone, making a lot of them impossible to browse because I can't read half of the the new Alien dialect on the screen. Some websites have been better than others, but its gotten to the point where some web pages (Like YouTube or Reddit for example.) will just be a mess of random de fragmented lime green blocks that completely corrupt the page and will shift, move and appear at random covering up text as I scroll down. Videos will play just fine, it's the rest of the site that's effed up. Also on YouTube videos, where the timer for the video is located, some of the numbers just won't show up. Like it will count down fine but won't display certain numbers in the timer. Funny thing is, is that this doesn't just affect the websites, but the browser itself. For example, hovering my mouse over different tabs will highlight them and show me the preview text of the tab. All that is good until I move over to a different tab and voila, the text is gone, and then suddenly all the other tabs are either blank or just missing random letters and numbers in the tab. This is only happening in Firefox btw. No other app on my PC is doing this. I've tried refreshing Firefox about six times now, I've uninstalled it three times in an attempt to fix the issue along with restarting my PC multiple times... All of that, and I find out yesterday that it works perfectly when in "Troubleshoot/Safe mode", and only when in Troubleshoot/Safe mode. I have no idea what is causing the issue... *PePeLaugh* 
 See, I would use another browser but I've been using Mozilla for 8-9 years and would like to avoid the hassle of moving everything to a new browser... I would VERY much appreciate any help at all.
 I'm running 64-bit windows 8.1 on the latest updates and my PC specs are roughly as follows below. I look forward to a response...

I have long used the option to have a separate address and search bar ("Add search bar in toolbar" in search settings). A few months ago, I changed that to "Use the address bar for search and navigation". The search bar is gone, but when I type a query into my combined address and search bar, I only get "We're having trouble finding this site".

Notes: -) My default search engine is DuckDuckGo, but it doesn't work either when I make Google my default search engine -) I can use the "this time search with..." buttons on bottom, but that's an extra step for every search -) My profile goes way back to the beginnings of Firefox. Any hidden settings that might not have been migrated properly in the past, and that I could check in the about:config?

Hey, All of the saved logins and passwords are gone while the bookmarks remain.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

How do I get back logins and passwords?

Hello - first I just want to acknowledge how great it is to have a free browser, and the great work the (un-or underpaid) Mozilla team has done lo these many years - thank you.

Okay, just want to put this out there but it seems sometime after version 90 of my Firefox browser I am seeing extreme slowdowns on my underwhelming Dell 5520 Inspiron laptop, circa 2014, running Windows 8.1. I also have Malwarebytes and Avast Premium Antivirus running together. My last Windows update was about two weeks ago (11 Nov 2021). My Firefox browser is currently 94.0.2.

I have noticed this four times. I typically browse Reddit but sometimes it's with Youtube. This is normally the scenario: 1) Launch browser; 2) navigate to website; 3) keep tab open for several hours and in many cases my laptop will go to sleep at least once; 4) at some point after waking up PC, logging in then continuing to browse, a warning banner in Firefox will tell me "This website is slowing your browser down. Stop it?", but if I wait at least 5 seconds it will automatically clear; 5) launch Task Manager - which is not easy because of what is going on but after 30-60 seconds it will appear; 6) notice that memory usage is extremely high and most processes are coming to a halt; 7) close Firefox and thing return to normal after 30-45 seconds. I've attached some before and after screenshots. The "before" is after browsing Reddit for about 3 hours and my laptop went to sleep twice; the "after" is when Firefox was closed (two tabs were open - one Reddit, the other Youtube) and then waiting about 30 seconds. Firefox instances take a little time to disappear from Task Manager, apparently.

Lots of variables to consider here: Latest antivirus program not working well? Extensions? (I have three extensions - Adblock Plus, Privacy Badger and Ecosia Search) Perhaps Firefox itself? Motherboard/DIMMs that is/are overdue for the landfill? Windows sucks? (rhetorical).

I guess I am not really looking for help but instead just want to log this as a heads-up to anyone who is encountering the same problem under the same conditions. I will continue experimenting with refreshing my instance of Firefox and possibly turning off browsers/antivirus components in a selective manner to see if it makes any difference. There is also the possibility that a Windows Update has broken something so maybe a restore point is in order here.

Thanks again for offering such a great product.

Please, why would you remove FVD Speed dial without first giving a warning so users can download their latest websites they have stored on it. that S__t is F______d up. What The F___ . some of those sites I had saved were hard to find the first damn time and now the whole set is f____ ing gone. I did not GIVE A DAMN if they shared data. I want my damn FVD Speed dial back or access to it to save my stuff first.

I find it totally unacceptable that you removed the tool I use THE MOST with out any opportunity save my tabs to export so I can still have them.

That arbitrary do it with no warning s__t is rude as f__c.

The storage of Logins & Passwords needs a new feature. The system lacks the ability to store a Nickname (aka Note/Comment) to each login entry. Some domains are different than the commonly known website name.

For example, the recipe website Cook'n is a section under the URL https://www.dvo.com/. When I search logins for "cook", Cook'n is not shown.

Twice in the past six months I have downloaded 'upgrades' to the Firefox browser, only then to have to spend half an hour resetting my options - home page, task bars, apps, etc. It's just not worth bothering to get the upgrades. Why do the upgrades mess with my personal settings?
