I have to go into task manager to stop background processors from freezing my computer. Closing background processors in disk and memory. Sometimes there are as many as 10 background processors running but it seems to be a only a few and can't tell which one's until I figure it out. Sometimes I can by the amount of usage. I have to do this several times as I use my computer.

Firefox just updated. I went to check my email and the layout was totally different and all the messages that were in my inbox and junk folder were gone!!! As a matter of fact, ALL of my saved emails and folders are gone!!! Where did they go? How do I get them back? How do I restore the previous Outlook view? It seems as if every time I get used to a layout you change it. This is a crock!!! I save things, such as emails that are important, and I place them in folders that I have created, so I know where they are and you guys just change it and throw away my folders? How do I go back to the previous version of Firefox? Or, how do I go back to the previous version of outlook so I can get my folders, saved emails, as well as my inbox back? If you are going to do this type of thing then give us the option of retaining our emails and the look and feel that we are used to. Some of us have trouble remembering things and change is difficult!!!!

When I try to print a PDF file that I opened with Firefox, it is very slow to start with, and then gives me a Printing error message and finally will only print 1 or 2 pages and not the rest. If I open the same PDF file with Acrobat and print, , I have no issues. I cleared my cache in Firefox and I have the latest version which downloaded today. Any fix? Sol

Hi,

I'd like to use keyboard media keys (play/pause, prev, next) to control Spotify web player and Youtube but they don't work. The option is enabled. I'm using Firefox 88.0 on Windows 8.1, so according to this article it should be supported. The keys work on other apps. I've tried in troubleshooting mode as well, no luck. Any ideas?

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?

I’ve had this problem since I upgraded Firefox to Version 91.0 and above. When I go to a trusted website with a URL prefix of HTTP:// that I visit every day, I’m now getting a screen displayed saying the site does not support HTTPS:// and tries to redirect me to the HTTP:// . I say “tries” because Firefox seems to go into a loop about every 10 seconds redisplaying the website does not support HTTPS:// screen and then being redirecting to HTTP:// There is nothing wrong with the website and it specifically states it DOES NOT support “HTTPS://" My settings under Tools==>Settings=>Privacy and Security for - History Against the ‘Firefox will’ text I’ve have selected the “Never remember History” option - HTTPS-Only Mode I have selected “Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode” option

It appears to me that under Firefox versions 91.0 and above that the ‘Don’t enable HTTPS Only Mode’ is being ignored/overridden and that Firefox is changing the HTTP:// URL prefix to “HTTPS://”, when you set up, under the “History” either the “Never remember history” option or select “Use custom settings for history” option and then select “Always use private browsing mode” I can get around this by either - Method 1 o Selecting “Use custom settings for history” option For me this totally unacceptable as OR - Method 2 o Selecting “Use custom settings for history” option o Unchecking the ““Always use private browsing mode” o After Firefox has restarted > Untick “Remember browsing and download history” > Untick “Remember search and form history” > Tick “Clear history when Firefox closes”

Is this a bug with versions 91.0 and above?????

I just installed the latest Firefox relese (91.0.1) to my Windows 8.1 PC. I have restarted FF and also since this bug re-booted the PC, and tried FF in troubleshoot mode. All same issue.

Ebay checkout is not working, when it was immediately before - you go to checkout, and it just sits on the page, without the 'pay' button appearing (just spinning disc) you click to go through to either PayPal or enter Credit card details ever coming up. The page stalls. This exact page was working fine immeditely before the FF update download and install, and it does work fine on other Browsers, because I just used Chrome and completed the transaction as normal, so this is DEFINITLY an issue with the new update. Please fix ASAP, and roll back in the mean time.

Is there any way to remove the 'line' under my uppermost search line/box that refers to 'For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar' (on the left) and Other bookmarks (on the right)? It just takes up more space. I use the Menu bar, and can access it from 'Bookmarks'.

Thank you.

Hi. Unfortunately, after the recent update of the Mozilla Firefox application, the application usage of my system memory has increased terribly. Before the update, it used about 5-10% of memory, but now it has about 40-55%, which is really strange and problematic. Please fix this problem immediately.

A while ago there was a change in the main Firefox screen at the search data entry box. When one starts to enter search data the entry immediately jumps to the address input bar at the top and starts adding suggested sites as you type. It is a dark color and typing is in dark purple. It is hard to see and hard to edit. I much prefer the previous input method where the search input stays in the large input box in the middle of the screen and I am in control of adding and editing my search data. I have been unable to change it back. Does anyone know how?

Hi, For a couple weeks now I have been trying to sign in to AOL Mail online and after entering my username to begin the sign in and "enter" I notice a window stating something about checking to see I'm not a robot but then I get a message "Uh-Oh, We can’t sign you in right now. Please try again in a while." I don't have this same issue when I try to log in via Chrome. In fact I don't even have a Captcha there? I have tried clearing history with everything to start fresh again but it didn't make any difference. Is there a setting I somehow need to change with this new update to get it working as before?

Thank you for your time and assistance with this.

After updating to 91 version almost all my addons stopped working in private mode.

When FF team decided to block all addons for private mode there was a setting in about:config to allow all adons to work in private mode, but it looks like it is removed in 91 (?) or renamed (?).

So, how to enable all addons to work in private mode at once ? I have a lot and clicking each one in its settings will take a lot of time.

I am using FF 64 bit, latest version (91), on Win8.1. Out of nowhere, FF has ceased to load any pages but mozilla's own pages like the help page I'm writing on. I've no themes installed and 2 windows open with approx. 155 tabs. I've tried turning of hardware acceleration, checked for proxies, updated FF, restarted FF, checked the Windows firewall (all permissions granted) and avast antivirus (ditto), checked for malware with avast antivirus - but all to no avail.

I am at a loss with this problem and kindly ask for advice. Januario

All of a sudden an extra toolbox appeared in my menu box. Every time I try to type something in my official google browser box what I am typing appears in the new search box instead of my google browser box. I have followed all the instructions in add-ons, extensions and refreshing Firefox and nothing fixes it. I also looked in my programs to uninstall the culprit but nothing new appears. In extensions there are no new one to remove. Does anyone have a solution as to how to remove this extra search bar. Thank you
