hello,

I noticed recently that there are multiple instances of firefox.exe running in task manager, at the moment I have 7 tabs open in firefox and there are 7 instances in task manager. I tried going to 'about:config' and setting 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' to false but this didn't make any difference. I had some problems with firefox crashing often, and was worried that there might be a problem

Any advice appreciated

1. Only 1 tab but eats 453 MB RAM! RAM eater. 2. Bad download manager with slow download speed & sometimes download failure. After pause / resume, downloads fail. 3. No built in ad blocker as Firefox's concern to protect privacy . 4. No built data saver for limited / slow connection.

FED UP with the damned BLUE DOTS. What's the PROPER way to (PERMANENTLY) turn them off in FF61?

Yes, I mean the "animated" (my ass!) blue dots that appear on the leftmost tab.

When try to log in my Firefox account , with the correct password which I still recall just fine, I'm asked to use two-step authentication.

And there lies the problem. Since I've reset my phone I don't have access to the authentication app anymore, and unfortunately I had forgotten to copy the recovery code for this particular account.

So now what? I do I access this account? I've got the correct email address and the matching password but not the authentication app configured.


Kind regards,

Raf

While at a particular shopping site, I cannot add a product to the shopping cart from the product page. Strangely, it will allow me to add product from the category page.

I can add the product with add-ons disabled. Product shows in the cart. When I re-enable the add-ons, no product in cart; when I disable again, product is in cart.

Something is blocking seeing the product in the cart.

This happens in 3 different computers; two running win 7, one running win10. I have cleared all cache on all computers multiple times.

THIS ONLY HAPPENS ON FIREFOX. IT DOES NOT HAPPEN USING CHROME.

Any thoughts?

Latest French Dictionary, Version 6.3.1webext appears severly broken. Runing on Mac, OSX 10.13.1, Firefox 63.0.3 I doubt version of OS or Firefox means anything. That new dictionary says Released Nov 28, 2018. If you are unlucky enough to download it before it's fixed, remove and replace with an earlier version. The link above provides earlier versions. I went with Nov 29, 2017 Version 6.2

If you only got this far to reload dictionary https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dictionnaire-fran%C3%A7ais1/ You needed to scroll down and on the left you would see an information box which included link to version history. That link is the one provided at the top of this text.

A couple weeks ago on all sites & social media sites I only saw the usual 2 3 or 4 options under/after the posts. Now in the past week I suddenly see this "Buffer" link that when I do click on it it doesn't buffer (or?) anything unless I have a Twitter account (requires me to log in to Twitter for some reason). I notice there is an add-on named "Buffer", but it's clear I haven't downloaded/installed that add-on (it's not shown in my computer's add-on extensions). Is there a way to remove this because I ALSO see it (Share with Buffer) as an item on the Toolbar when I click to customize it, & I have taken it off/hid it from the toolbar, but it's still there & on those sites. On my Windows 7 computer (which also has an earlier Firefox version) I don't see either of those "Buffer" things.

And in the most similar question/post I saw in Community Support (not the same problem but kinda more concerning & why I want to remove this "Buffer" thing, even if it's actually another Spyware like "feature" of Win10), their only help/solution is to upgrade their firewall that they don't know what firewall/Anti-Malware Program they may already have (lol).

I have Firefox set to "Always use private browsing mode."

Then, under "Cookies and Site Data," I select "Accept cookies and site data from websites" and also select "Keep until FIREFOX IS CLOSED."

So, I go to a website. Then, before I go to a different website, I close Firefox because I want it to dump EVERYTHING from my visit to the first website. But, because I am healthily paranoid, I double-check to make sure that everything is dumped. But what I find is the following, under "Cookies and Site Data": "Your stored cookies, site data and cache are currently using 168 kb bytes of disk space." Or, the number can be 148 kb. Or 98 kb. What the number is exactly, however, does not matter except for the fact that THE NUMBER IS NOT ZERO!!!

So, I start suspecting that the residual "cookies, site data and cache" are not from the websites I visit, but FROM FIREFOX ITSELF. Sure as hell, they are. How do I know? Because I can open Firefox, clear the "Cookies and Site Data" so the number goes to zero, then close Firefox without ever going to a website. Then, open Firefox again, and guess what? THE NUMBER IS NOT ZERO ANYMORE.

So, would someone please give me a fix that does not involve cleaning the f'ing cache every time I go to a new website.

And if you have the time, maybe you can convince me why a privacy-minded person should not dump Firefox altogether. (Warning: If your argument is going to be "Don't dump Firefox because there's no better alternative," then you can please save your breath.)

Thanks.

Search engines that I removed from my list of one-click search engines (in the Firefox options) reappear after a month or so. This has happened a couple of times already. I suspect that the reappearance is triggered by a Firefox update, but am not sure about that. The search engines that I keep removing and that keep reappearing after a while are - Bing - bol.com - Marktplaats.nl

I'm using Firefox on Windows 10 Home, with Dutch regional settings. I cannot find evidence of having (unwittingly) installed any Windows applications or Firefox extensions or plugins associated with these search engines (except that Bing is a Microsoft product and might be integrated into the operating system). Neither "bol.com" nor "marktplaats" occur in my Windows registry.

What is causing these search engines to keep reappearing? How can I prevent them from reappearing? I notice an option in the "General" section of Firefox options whose description (translated to English) is "Update search engines automatically". Is that the reason for the unwanted search engines reappearing? I figured that that option meant "update the search engines from your list automatically" and would not install search engines that aren't currently in my list.

Hi there. I've been using Firefox for many years, and have never come across this issue. Over the past 24-48 hours, I've noticed a problem with Firefox being able to load pages. The problem comes and goes, but is getting more frequent, despite my troubleshooting. Sometimes I have one tab open and can surf just fine, but other tabs get stuck in perpetual loading, or no tabs will load at all. My internet connection is fine: I've checked and rechecked all of my VPN settings, and tested other browsers (Chrome and Edge) and they have no issue at all with loading multiple pages on multiple tabs.

I have troubleshooted the settings in Firefox as laid out on the support pages here: changing settings, checking my firewall settings, resetting Firefox, restoring to default, uninstalling and reinstalling, and nothing seems to fix the issue. I do not wish to find a different browser, as I have been very pleased with this one over the years, but it's getting to the point where that may have to be an option if I cannot fix this problem. Please advise on where I should go from here. Thanks!

I do a lot of online surveys and often need to retrieve specific events or range of events from history. Sometimes it takes a week for survey support to respond. By then there are thousands of page visits as I work through survey lists. This makes it very daunting to reconstruct history. I've pull up all history and look at the "added" column and it checked off in the drop down but the fields are blank in the history page, the entire page is devoid of and time information. There are difficulties copying the information that I do find, often it opens the page, which do not want to happen. completed or expired surveys will not reload.


IF I can export the entire history file to excel or CSV, I think could work with that
