Hello. I had discovered that Firefox itself creates a so called "fork bomb" by creating a big amount of sub-processes under the main one (with I can prove thru the attached screenshoots).

Could anyone have a idea how to limit Firefox from opening so many sub-processess, with (wanting or not) are mostly causing that my system runs out of memory and stop beeing responsible to any of my inputs, with forces me to restart the system (similar thing is done by an DOS attack)

I use the Firefox 88.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04 (64-bit)

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

It's all in the title. The "quick searches" feature that pops up when I highlight text is a lot more annoying then useful, so I turned it off... and it seems to re-enable itself randomly. One time I disabled it, and after 5 seconds, it re-enabled itself. So annoying. I've made so many accidental searches with that stupid feature. I mean, how many people copy text just to search it up? Even then, they can highlight the text, right click, then click "Search (engline) for (text)".

The point being, the feature is re-enabling itself randomly, and it's getting on my nerves.

I don't see any option within the settings to turn it off. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I just started with 89.0 and instead of the horrid 15% of CPU that 88 used it now uses 30%. That's with an enormous amount of windows (not tabs) open, but most are limited by NoScript until I temp permit them. FX Task Manager shows very little usage, so apparently no ill behaved sites. AAR 30% of an i7 with many gigs of memory is intolerable. Even the 15% was heating up the CPU.

So I'll take "some" CPU heating vs. "massive" by rolling back to 88.0.1. By the way, whatever keeps changing my option from manually approved updates to automatic, thank you for doing that at times without asking me first.

The problem is that now when I start 88.0.1 it insists on a new profile "for my own protection". But I want the old profile, with hundreds of bookmarks and dozens or hundreds of session windows from my last session, and add-ins ... for example right how I don't have NoScript and don't have time to deal with that. I tried to get around the "we're just helping you" insistence on a new profile, by copying a week-old backup over C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\hbouy3r1.default\sessionstore.jsonlz4 and starting but it still insists. I guess that's just sessions, not the whole profile.

Can I defeat the prohibition against using the old profile, or failing that, can I import or merge the old profile in? Keep in mind that the "old" profile has been modified by having started 89. I wish now that I had never selected the old profile when I began 89 (I always prompt for profile). (But, heck, I didn't even KNOW I was going to a new version. It auto-updated, and when I started FX, and it seems to have "updated" the old profile making it now unusable for a prior version).

Or can I go to a backup and copy the tree of C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\OldProfile\ and start FX again with 88.0.1? BTW I assume that is the version I was on a week ago.

Hi there, I have now had a second occurrence of strange information populating in a web page text fields by the Firefox autocomplete/autofill process. I was registering for a webinar, and I was using the autofill option to complete the registration form. When I looked at the options, i saw another name listed twice. The first was associated with a throwaway email but the second was associated with my contact info. I do not use Firefox Sync, and the computer I use is not used by anyone else (home computer). I have tried to Google a solution, but there doesn't seem to be an answer--other people have also asked similar questions. If possible, can anyone with specific knowledge let me know how Firefox gathers the data used in to autofill web page text fields/forms? I'm working with my employer ISO group to find out if this is some sort of vulnerability. I'm also curious to know if the Firefox autofill is getting data cached from a webpage (I have used the page to register for other webinars). I am using a Mac mini (late 2014) with Sierra 10.12.6. Firefox is v. 88.0.1 (64 bit)--Firefox update is just waiting for the browser relaunch to install. The add-ons i have installed are Adblocker Ultimate, YouTube Downloader, and Cisco WebeX extension. So far, I have performed a full scan with Sophos, and I have combed though the results of netstat -a -n but I could not find suspicious connections. Any help is appreciated :) --Alex

Multiple crashes with FF, not sure what the problem is. Checked and updated Windows 10, no problem there, so not sure why FF keeps crashing after only a few minutes.

Using Firefox 88.01 (64-bit) and since the last couple of days I cannot video files (about 1 GB or more) to my Google Drive folder. Files of small size, like text files sized about 50 KB or 10 KB can be uploaded. The error message I get on the Google Drive Page is "Starting upload" but the uploading doesn't begin. This happens both in Windows 10 and Ubuntu 21.04. I refreshed Firefox and also tried uploading the file in Troubleshooting mode but that didn't help. Google Chrome can upload files to Google Drive just fine.

Every time I open a New Tab, I have to re-sign into some websites - AKA: some websites will not keep me logged in across multiple tabs. This includes some of my online banking websites (which then need 2FA immediately to get into again), Apple-related accounts (same 2FA issue, my accounts/devices always appear like I'm signing into a brand new devices/browsers every time), some Amazon-related accounts, some blogs, and various other websites/hosts, like WikiDot pages, Ao3, and others, etc.

How can I "approve/OK" the sites that I frequent/are favorites, for this browser, on this computer, so I will remain logged in (for however long is possible)?

I have, as of earlier today, completed a new computer build. Along with that is new memory hardware that I have physically installed into the PC. When installing Firefox and attempting to get my bookmarks, search history, etc synced with the fresh installation, I noticed that it is wiped clean.

I don't remember if I ever disallowed Firefox to sync my data across the browser, but after looking at one of Mozilla's support articles such as this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ive-lost-my-firefox-sync-account-information ... it states that "We encrypt your data with a key derived from your password in order to keep it safe on the server."

I cannot recover any of my data from the sync feature, so I'm wondering if a member of Mozilla Support could restore my data to my account? I tried looking for a direct contact page that includes a company email, phone number, or anything, but it seems like this is the only page for Mozilla-related support I can find, or rather, Thunderbird.

I am looking for a way to obtain un-interrupted video on some of the news sites I visit, e.g., www.wlwt.com.

When I use Firefox on news sites, videos frequently stop well before the video is finished. Such a video will not start again until I move the progress marker to a later point, and then I return to the point of stoppage. The video then will start from that point until some point later on at which I repeat the process (unless the video has finished :) . It appears the video host is waiting for some signal from my computer to send more bits, but the signal is never received (?). These stoppages do not occur when I use Chrome. Is there something I can do to obtain continuous video playback on Firefox?

Many thanks!!
