hello there, i am using firefox on a old pc with duel cores only. There is a independent firefox process always running at my background using 100% of one of the core. because of just one core left for windows, it crashes frequently. Also no matter what i do on firefox or keep it idle, that process always takes 100% of the core. please tell me how to solve that.

ThankYou

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

Is it possible to have the Startup cache cleared automatically before opening a session?

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

When using Firefox on my 2018 MacBook Pro the cursor will either jump to the address bar or close the window in which I have been entering text. This has been happening since I got the MacBook Pro. This does not happen with other browsers, only Firefox. It has continued with this issue through several OS updates as well as Firefox updates.

My computer crashed and when I openend firefox, all my tabs were gone, about 140, it was impossible to open recently closed tabs or previous session. I found about 20 files that might contain all the tabs but none of them are opened properly in the scrounger at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html When I try to export it uncompressed, i get the message that the context of the box does not look like json, that's true because the box is empty after opening all 20 files. Even though one file even is 1.16mb. Does anyone has other advice on at least getting the url's from the file? You would expect at least one file to work right?

I'm trying to figure out what on earth is wrong with this software. After installing the latest version, unbeknownst to me, after an hour or two of usage the browser fails to connect to any website, at all. Upon closing and re-opening the browser, I'm prompted that "you've launched an older version of Firefox" my bookmarks and history is corrupted, I need to create a new profile. Once the browser actually opens, I check the version, it's now reverted back to 87 where, it begins this absurd cycle all over again, downloading and installing 88.01.

What is this, only compatible with 20h2? My system does not yet have this.

In order to stop this madness. I've removed it, installed v74, threw a policy.json file together to block this from updating itself.

Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.

Euer SCHEIß Update könnt ihr euch selber verpassen. Jedes mal gehen meine ARbeiten verloren, weil Firefox sich oberste Prioritäten setzt den PC runter zu fahren. Das kann's nicht sein.

I use an iMac with 3 displays as follows:

[1080p] - [1080p MAIN] - [2048x11152 Retina]

I use all 3 displays for browser windows but primarily the centre one.

When I drag a Firefox tab from the 1080p screens to the Retina screen, the UI is way too small to work with. All other applications seem to scale the UI properly though.

I'm attaching screenshots of: 1. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the 1080p display (both have suitable UI sizes) 2. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the Retina display (Firefox's UI is too small)

Is there any way to resolve this short of increasing the Firefox UI scale globally (which would take too much space on the 1080p screens)?

I'm using: MacOS 11.2.3 Firefox 88.0

thanks! Dean

Hello, I can open firefox but I can't access any website. Firefox is completely blocked. Just a blank page. I can't access "option" or any other tab. I can't access internet. Since I'm not a developer I've decided to download a new version but can't seem to delete ALL the files from the previous firefox so when I upload the new I get the message impossible to execute the code VCRUNTIME_1.dll which isn't found. I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem but the "new" Firefox shows exactly the same issue. I can't access internet. I even tried to download, after deleting the firefox on my desktop, a firefox for businesses but the same message and the same issue. I've tried to delete absolutely all files Firefox from my laptop so I could download the browser as if I never had it on my computer but I'm not successful so the same issue shows up again and again. Thank you for your help.
