I currently have version 72.0.2 and it is so slow.

I suspected an ISP problem although I have fibre optics but I just have to compare FIreFox with another browser to see that FireFox is the problem.

For instance, on the same site, I can call up a different page in around 5 seconds with FireFox whereas the same change of page takes well under 2 seconds with the Avast Browser.

Opening 3 tabs simultaneously in FireFox when I launch it takes YONKS whereas it used to load all 3 pages in a blink.

I already have add ons like "Disable HTML5 Autoplay" installed to speed up things.

What is the solution please?

The gpu usage (more specifically the encoding) has crazy spikes which causes frames to drop (a lot of them).

I'm almost sure this only happens with vp9 and so far I've only seen it happen in 1080p and over (1080p60 etc).

The gpu should be more than able to play these. And in the moments it isn't spiking it's only using like 30 to 40% so it is more than able.

Edit 1: It's really strange because I just watched 4k60 videos and 1080p60 videos in both VP9 and AV and they worked just perfect and then I went to a 1080p24 in VP9 and it skips like hell. And then I went back to the previous video and it gets almost 100% skipped frames at 4k60 when just 5 minutes ago it was playing it fine.

So basically I can't successfully reproduce the problem the same way all the time. Maybe you guys have some tools I can use to do more in-depth testing.

Edit 2: I am now convinced that the problem lies with the iGPU not having enough memory because one common thing that I noticed every time there's skipping is that the vram is pretty much full. At the same time that's strange because the system should then use the system memory as shared memory, right? I checked my BIOS to see if I could increase the iGPU memory but it literally only gives me a single option, which isn't even the correct one since it shows 128MB and I have 256MB, or at least the specs of the laptop, Firefox (about:support) and Windows says so.

I know there's other laptops with this iGPU that can change that so if anyone has one that can test that we would know.

When I go to a website, the website scrolls down in medium speed until it reach the bottom, It does not allow me to scroll while this is happening. I have tried to refresh firefox, reinstall firefox and run with no addons. Autoscrolling is off. Caret Browsing is off. It also scrolls if I am active in another window.

This is most annoying on auto loading websites, because it scrolls down the site loads more content and the scrolling continues until the site stop loading new content.

This only happens on this device and not on my laptop (also Linux) that has the same plugins.

So every time I open firefox, it immediately gives me the Gah your tab just crashed on the opening page and every other page I try to launch. I tried downloading an older version of firefox and got the same results. Now I'm back on the most up to date version and I can't seem to access any options or account features, ie nothing happens when I click on the bookmarks, account or menu buttons in the corner. I submitted the crash reports, but now it won't even take me to any page if I try to put a url or about:crashes in. It doesn't show the crash page either. What do I do???

When I click Update, 13,2 MB are downloaded, then immediately another 53,7 MB and after that message appears like - Firefox can't update to the latest version. I disabled all extensions. Are there other solutions besides installing the application again? Surely, after such an operation, I have to reconfigure something again :(

Can I at least find out the reason why this is happening? Maybe some logs?

This version is just junk!!!!! Just set the preferences and sign in Firefox and all other accounts like Gmail etc. Trying to save the history and all the passwords and everything you got. That's all gone when you shut Firefox down. When you reopen none of your history or passwords are there or you start from scratch. This is absolutely ridiculous. This version should never been released absolute disgrace. It doesn't deserve to be called a browser. I'm so disgusted and angry I can't put it in words.

Fix the damn thing!!!!

It is so bad when I try to get into accounts like Gmail it sees a different computer every time I log in. For security they have to phone me every time I reopen Firefox to to get into my account. I have to verify who I am!!!! Every single time that includes my banking online!!!!!

Tried to download bills from FPL, Comcast and Verizon and never got to see them due to Firefox rapidly opening a seemingly infinite number of tabs. The only way to stop it was to close all tabs. When I went to Google instead, I was able to do normal download.

Bookmarks frequently have helpful cute little icons next to them. I like to rename many of my bookmarks (the Google ones) with zero length names - but the folder that drops down is still wide to accomodate the "Open in all tabs." This could be a bit better.

after the panic subsided, I contacted all 8 of the sites listed which of course I could not remember a single PW, and only 1 Site Admin was ready and willing to help me - thank you Cafe Press ! Part of my situation is that two of my three former email addresses were dropped when AOL bought Verizon's EMail Division and only let us bring 1 suitcase per person. Trouble is, the other two addys were sub accounts, one was a Business Account so much of the info was quite detailed but the same. But these days, data breaches are so comon (yawn?) it's almost not shocking. But 8 ? Yikes. Here's the thing, I thank you for the alerts, but you scare me to death then leave me hanging. I have no idea which 5 sites had the same PW (huh ?). I supposed over 20 years online and at 2500 logins, at some point my brain ran out of creative unique login's. I use a Password Program but it doesn't catch 3 email addresses that may share a common PW. Any suggestions how to "Resolve" those breaches which I can barely remember where I've left my britches ? Thanks. 5/2500 = .002 % P.W.s repeated , not the worst odds in the world. Spread that % over a 22 year span, the equation is so low there is an "e" in the final outcome !

No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

How to get tabs from a previous session back when FF starts?

Hello everyone. I am an old FF Windows user, but faced something new since moved to FF on Mac. It does keep previous session when I try to troubleshoot - so I mean starting it, opening couple of tabs and trying to restart - but unfortunately it does not if FF kept opened for days or weeks. That's a pain, as lot of pinned tabs collected to the moment and I simply do not remember what was that weeks ago and it's not so easy to search throughout the history.

Of course, Startup set to Restore previous session and History set to Remember. I am aware there might be sessionstore.js or something like this, but might be there is some additional magic option to be set to avoid the issue? I am aware of that "last window to close - the only to remember" problem. This is not the case.

Just one window. Only pinned tabs. Clean window on start. No option to restore previous session (it's empty).

Appreciate any idea. Thanks.

P.S. I have found this thread, unfortunately it was left unanswered and archived: https://support.mozilla.org/ru/questions/1174479

If I am not interested and close the add Fire Fox doesn't take me back to where I was on that page. It puts me at the beginning of that page and you have to scroll down the page to where you were and then keep looking for what you want.

Every morning, when I first turn on my computer, I a have to spend the first 5 minutes setting up my Firefox again because of a "new profile". I have to re-enable all of my add-ons and configure them as well. Why does this happen every single day and is there a way to prevent it? If not, then I'm done with this browser...such a colossal waste of time for something that I shouldn't have to do. I don't have to completely set up Chrome or Edge if they do an update...all of the pertinent stuff is brought forward.

I used to use Firefox but changed to Waterfox Classic a couple of years ago. I have now downloaded Waterfox Current but can't transfer my bookmarks and passwords to the new Waterfox. All the suggestions on the sub-Reddit group do not work because I am not sufficiently computer literate to understand them and/or they are incorrect. Syncing did nothing so I am back on Firefox but syncing here does not bring all the bookmarks from Waterfox Classic to Firefox either. As noted, I am to all intents and purposes computer illiterate plus I am in my mid-seventies with no teenagers around to solve techie problems for me. I really don't want to have to open my bookmarked sites in Firefox and them bookmark them manually, so is there an easy way to get my bookmarks and passwords from Waterfox Classic to Firefox. If so, can someone point me in the direction of an idiot's guide so I can revert to Firefox as my default browser? Thank you
