How the flipping f can I disable this (see attached image). I was able to do this previously with setting "browser.urlbar.update2 = false" Now it doesn't work anymore.

I use keyword for search engines extensively and this is very very annoying!

How do I make it go away.

I use Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Mac os x Catalina 10.15.6

Thanks

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.

All the family use my PC with their own user accounts. Frequently Firefox goes slow and whenever I check 'About Firefox' I see 'Firefox is being updated by another instance'. This means that I have to log off all other users and then let my Firefox run an update check which, of course, normally just comes back with 'up to date'.

The problems are normally evidenced by Firefox just being very slow and/or only showing parts of the page and those parts changing as and when the page is scrolled.

This is a real problem with Firefox and makes it very unpopular with my family due to its unreliability.

Could not Firefox be set to only do an update check when it can actually complete the check and/or update.

Any advice appreciated.,

thanks,

Rob

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz 4 Cores GPU - AMD Radeon R7 200 Series with 2gb.

3-26-21: I just upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and NONE of my bookmarks are available. I've tried all the tips I've found and nothing works. I tried to Restore Bookmarks and get the error: Unable to process the backup file. This is a terrible version of Firefox. I need my Bookmarks. Where did they go?? How do I get them back? I am not a computer expert. I am a user of your product. I should not have to jump through hoops just to get my browser set up the way I had it before. Right now it is a big mess. I've used Firefox for years when other browsers are available. I will dump Firefox if I have to but I would prefer to solve this problem.

Multiples tabs problem since the last update

Hello, please forgive my language since it's not my native one, I hope it will be understandible...

Since the last firefox update, I've got an issue with my tabs. I use a lot of them (3000+) and it wasn't a problem until now : when I started my computer, firefox launched all the tabs of my previous session, but they loaded only when I selected one of them. I could still launch other program, play games etc

Now when I launch my computer, my memory is sucked dry by firefox (50% to 80%), firefox take a massive amount of time to launch and load my previous session (5 secondes before update, 5-10 minutes now) and I can't use it without some serious lags. If I try to open new tabs it's getting worst and worst. I've try to restart it, repair it etc, but when I try to reload my tabs with a backup, the same issue happen again...

Does someone has an idea to fix this ? Or what the problem can be ?

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

Our website, www.twindata.com , uses forms hosted by MyContactForm ( www.mycontactform.com ) and have been doing so since 2016.

While doing an update to a form today, I received a message from MyContactForm stating this form is not at the location(s) it was listed as being at when the form was created. The message is attached.

I tried another UNCHANGED form that's been working for years and the same/similar error results. I downgraded to Firefox v86 and it worked fine, as well did the updated form I was working with.

The form is near the bottom of the page at this URL: http://www.twindata.com/cli/AG6601.htm

Any help will be greatly appreciated. We depend on these forms for our business.

Problems with something simply not working the way it has for years has happened with previous Firefox version upgrades.

Hopefully I'll see some answers and suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Hi All

So recently I had some windows issues on my newer laptop and had to resort to going back to my old laptop for the time being. Before using it I restored the system to factory settings and such then reinstalled the newest versions of firefox and such then imported my profiles that I backed up from the new system.

Was working fine for few weeks but the last week or so I have noticed firefox has become sluggish in how it loads websites and such.

I have tried setting up a test profile and that new profile was reacting the same way very sluggish in loading pages.

I have also cleared my browsers cache wondering if that would help.

I have also tested loading pages in Microsoft Edge to see if it was browser or system related and Edge seems to be loading pages just fine so it has to be browser specific.

Any ideas what I should try next to clear this up as the sluggishness is getting old fast!

Thanks

I am using FF 88.01 on Mac OSx and I have found behavior changes in Firefox that where corrected by closing and reopening FF. An example is a youtube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wb0FCQug48c which produced an error something like unable to play video no mater how many times I try yet other youtube videos would play. After closing FF then reopening it played.

Can the running configuration of FF be captured for evaluation ?

I tried to access a website but Mozilla will not permit it as it says it is a potential security risk, probably due to an expired certificate. But when I went to the help page it said to contact the website owner to let them know about the difficulty as they might not realize what is happening and that they need to redo the certificate. How do I contact the website owner when I cannot access the website?

(I would love to include an attachment, but your page here will not let me. It only accepts 'images' and what I have to share is a Word document with a printscreen of the refusal to allow access tab and the information from the webpage to 'contact the website owner'.)

Always browsed in Private mode with Strict tracking controls. All sites worked, including videos. After update to 87.0, videos will not run on sites. I've added nothing else since the update and have not changed any settings. I would prefer to not go to "Standard" controls. Any help or advice out there for someone who is definitely not a computer guru??? Many Thanks!

1) I tried turning off Protection: no help. 2) I tried the about:config recommendation: sorry, no change. And if it takes more then that to solve it, it's way above my head! Thanks!
