Ok-So this popup window popped up when I returned to Firefox. I don't think it's legit and I am wondering how I go about blocking it permanently. I searched the settings but didn't see where I could post the URL so that is why I am posting this here.

I copied the URL but I don't want to post it here in case it could do something to someone else's system. But here is the screenshot. Please advise me what I need to do. Thank you! TGIF!

I am on a Mac running Sonoma.

Help please.

I had to factory reset my laptop (or rather, an IT support person took over my machine and reset it before I could back up things properly!). I was not able to restore my previously opened tabs (there were a lot, like >100). It appears that all of those tabs still are showing on my mobile version of firefox as 'synced tabs'. Is there a way to pull that sync information from my phone to my laptop? If I press on "synchronise tabs" will the phone receive my laptops current tabs (not what i want), or will it update the laptop (what i do want)?

Thank you.

I try to sign-in to my KP.org account and I get a white page with the message (Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.) I called KP and they said there was nothing wrong with their site. I added the URL to the cookies exception list with no result. I tried to paste the exact URL of the sign-in page into my bit-warden and it said it exceeded the 1000 character limit. I can sign-in on Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox. any ideas?

Now, I have to click into the search bar to type. That's annoying.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hello, I administer a small fleet of Ubuntu desktops. For a variety of reasons we avoid using Canonical's Snap package version of Firefox.

Currently the fleet is using Firefox installed from the Mozilla Team PPA repo. However that repo can be incredibly slow and after reading about the new Firefox deb packages [1] from the Mozilla APT repository we would like to move to them. The problem is that these packages lack Apparmor profiles, so unfortunately my security team won't let me use them.

Would it be possible to add Apparmor profiles to these packages please? They would need to be applied only when an OS has Apparmor enabled, which may not be the default for Debian.

Thank you!

Hi Firefox Support Community,

I've been exploring the reviews on SGEats and noticed some performance issues while browsing the site using Firefox. The site has numerous high-quality images and interactive elements which seem to cause slower load times and occasional lag.

Are there any specific Firefox settings or extensions that could help improve the performance for such media-heavy websites? Would enabling or adjusting hardware acceleration settings make a significant difference in this case? Are there known issues with Firefox handling similar content-rich websites, and if so, are there any recommended troubleshooting steps? I appreciate any insights or recommendations to enhance my browsing experience on SG Eats and similar sites.

Thanks!

potential resources for addressing performance issues in Firefox:

YouTube gets very laggy after a while - best way to restore performance?

I always keep two Youtube tabs open at all times on my computer. After a while of running, however, the site starts to get increasingly laggy, in a way that simply reloading the tab does not fix. (I am aware that this is likely a result of one of the extensions I have installed that affects Youtube's behavior, specifically SponsorBlock and Return Youtube Dislike, but I am not willing to uninstall these.) I also know of a "force reload" - pressing ctrl + shift + R instead of just ctrl + R in order to clear the cache or something.

However, whenever Youtube starts getting really slow, I instead like to do something I call "crashing the tab" - I open my system monitor, look for the current most CPU-intensive "Isolated Web Co" process, and end it. This pops up an error message in Firefox that says "Gah - your tab just crashed!" and offering me the option to restore it. After restoring it from this window, the performance is back to normal.

My question is, is this beneficial, or is it functionally identical to a normal force-reload? Is the improvement I see between this method and force-reloading the page just placebo? And if not, is there a simpler way to do it without opening a second program?

I experienced problems with Firefox on different Windows 10 clients. The problems are only with Firefox, other browser like Chrome or Edge have no issues. The occasional issues are that Firefox loads the websites either very slow (~ 30 to 60 seconds) or sometimes not at all. At the same time, other browsers like Chrome or Edge load the same websites fast and reliably.

All affected clients have a fully patched Windows 10 with the latest build, up-to-date Firefox versions, recent processors and plenty of RAM and I periodically clean cookies/website-data/cache/history.

What could be the problem and the solution?

Currently, when I try and open downloaded .txt files and .log files (that is, when I click on them directly from the download pop-up that appears at the top-right of the browser), Firefox inexplicably opens Aegisub on my machine as the app to use. This is in contrast to when I open it directly from within my file browser, where it opens the Kate text editor, as suggested by the default app option in the permissions of the filetype.

How do I change the apps Firefox uses to open downloaded files? I've tried going into my settings and looking at applications, but .txt and .log don't appear, so I'm not quite sure what to do.

I'm on Kubuntu 22.04.3 LTS, using the Firefox deb package.

About tab crashes Every time I open Firefox, it crashes immediately and does not trigger the crash report window. Even though I have checked and enabled the option to send crash reports in the settings, it doesn't work. When I look for crash report logs, it shows that I have not sent any crash reports.I've tried many methods to view the crash report, but it just shows that there are none. I only found this information related to crash reports in the installation files.(you can see it in the picture),hope someone can answer this question, thank you very much.😭

This randomly happened over the past few months but last couple days it's bad. The Google Sheets cells I have open on Firefox turn black. You can scroll and they will come back but just briefly and back to black. Very annoying as these are shared sheets for my business with other employees. It's not happening in Vivaldi Browser or Edge. I hate Chrome so not even trying it there but guessing it's fine. Seems to just be Firefox all of a sudden. See pic. Help please as I have no clue what's causing this.
