(Pop!_OS distro used) I use a handful of resources to monitor my laptop's resources. The attached image is from the htop command (note that I've been using the laptop at most an hour, and it was compltely powered off before. Unsure why it says such high times.). Over the past four-ish months, I've seen firefox's new-window command (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window) function very strangely. Two instances of the command randomly run for extended periods of time (anywhere from a few seconds to two or three minutes, often towards the longer end), taking up ~100% of the cpu usage for each given one second interval (the time my htop is configured to check). While I'm aware htop records cpu statistics extremely different than task manager (frankly, I'm not quite sure how it measures), this cpu spike takes place with other irregular fluctuations in my laptop, which says to me that the command is in fact doing something. When the cpu spikes occur, I see my cpu temperature rise up to 80 degrees Celsius, and it's frequency hit it's cap for only a handful of threads, while the rest stay completely unchanged.

To clarify the extent of the randomness when I say the commands run randomly: this happens without any pattern that I can identify. I've had anywhere from 1 to 10 tabs open, resting in the background from anywhere between a couple minutes to half an hour, and two new-window commands will run, unprompted, as described above. I've been scrolling through an article, and out of no where, the twin commands run. I've loaded up webpages and the commands have run. I've been watching videos, simply opened a new tab (ironic given the command name), just anything you can do on the web browser, and the commands have run. And there have been days where this issue doesn't happen at all. This can happen numerous times while I'm on firefox. It could happen once, followed by a lot of intervals of the commands running, or it could be a while before the next time it happens.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb to me is that, as I mentioned at the end of the first paragraph, I see one thread 'catch' and cause this spike. It's a random thread, it can be a different one each time this happens during a given session on firefox, but I've only every noticed it to be one thread.

Not sure what's up. I tried to be as detailed as possible since I could find anything about this on these forums.

I just bought an HP Officejet 9018. I tried printing a receipt that was sent as an attachment to my gmail. It only prints very small in the upper left hand corner even though the print preview looks normal. I tried to print a return label that Amazon sent me a link to. It printed the same way. I called HP & after connecting with my laptop & trying many different settings unsuccessfully, they had me try to print from Chrome. The attached receipt in gmail & the return label printed fine from Chrome. It also printed fine from my gmail in my Android phone & my iPad, so the issue is only when in Firefox on my Windows 10 computer. My saved documents print fine. I just updated to the latest Firefox today, but the issue started when I got the HP printer & tried to print while using Firefox 2 days ago.

I saw instructions in here on checking the paper_data. It shows letter. I changed from "fit to page width" to Scale 100. I still have the same issue. There was one other instructions given to someone in Mozilla Support to click "file" & then something else, but I have nothing on my page that says "file". I assume the person answering the question thought the person asking was trying to print a saved document, but that wasn't the case.

I tried to attach screen prints, but my laptop is having issues & isn't saving them for some odd reason, yet I can see them in the "recents" in Microsoft Word. I save them again, but the same thing. It isn't in the folder when I click "browse" on "Add images" below.

What else can I do? it's such a pain to have to go to Chrome every time I want to print something. Thanks

For a few days, Firefox has been freezing at certain pages and interactions. For instance:

Other pages work fine. When the freeze happens, the whole browser becomes completely unresponsive, including the window controls. The following is printed in the console if I launch FF from console:

``` ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 10319 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ```

I am running FF version 88.0 (64-bit) on Arch Linux under Gnome on Wayland, installed through pacman.

What I have tried without success:

  • Using a new FireFox profile (no extensions, history, cookies, etc)
  • With and without WebRender
  • With and without Wayland composition (`MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND`)
  • All combinations of the two above
  • Restarting the system, updating the system, reinstalling firefox
  • Running mozregression

With mozregression I had the issue for all builds since `56f6da03c7e352f53fa923b30f66dfdf09a34116`, for all older builds I get the "Gah. Your tab just crashed." message.

I don't have issues with other programs or web browsers.

I like using the address bar to search, but when I start typing an address I don't want the first thing between what I'm typing and the actual url that I can quick select to be 6 "search suggestions". Going into about:config and setting keyword.enabled false removes those search suggestions but it also stops the address bar search from working. Is there a setting that I can use to set the number of displayed suggestions to 0?

Hi,

I want to backup my profile, so I followed the instructions on [Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles]

It says that I should copy the xxxxxxxx.default folder, but I can see 2 folders in the mentioned location.

  1. bxx3v8u9.default-release
  2. yfefhd4p.default

The first folder, bxx3v8u9.default-release, contains many files and sub folders, while the second folder, yfefhd4p.default, contains only 1 file - times.json

According to the article, I should backup xxxxxxxx.default folder, which is the yfefhd4p.default in my case. But, in the same article, under Restoring to a different location, it says Copy the entire contents of the profile folder backup, such as the handlers.json file, prefs.js file, bookmarkbackups folder, etc.

So, do I need to backup/restore both folders?

Hello, I am a keyboard user. I am wondering if there is a way to prevent the bookmarks menu from auto-closing after I open a bookmark in a new tab?

I have already tried setting "browser.bookmarks.openInTabClosesMenu" to FALSE, but this seems to only work for mouse-users, who can then ctrl+click a bookmark and it will open in a new tab while leaving the menu open where it was.

Is there an equivalent setting for keyboard users? So you can press ctrl+enter on a bookmark with similar results? Or perhaps a different key combination other than ctrl+enter, for which the bookmarks menu won't auto-close?

Thanks.

Suddenly, Firefox stopped autofilling urls in my url bar and only offers search terms. Occasionally a url will show up there on autofill but only is triggered from beginning characters of the url rather than something in the middle.

Previously, when searching for something like https://mywebsite/particular-page/ , I could type "particular" in the url window and FF would offer the full url. Now, there is no such behavior and I have to think of the opening url and complete many more characters to get the result that previously was very simple and quick.

I have tried separating the search from the url window but that has no affect on this behavior.
