I tried to close it one by one by "end task" option but still, every time I open Firefox again these tabs or whatever they are are back and using memory more than any browser

Any idea where I can get a Firefix devide login history with more information please?

Hi I am running Firefox 103 on my lenovo thinkpad T570 running windows 10. Streaming any video (e.g. BBC iPlayer or GCN+ or any source I have tried) Video very choppy, freezes for several seconds while audio continues as normal. this is essentially unusable. Task manager shows firefox running at 70% or more I have tried all the power management settings and that makes no difference. The Nvidia Gforce940 appears not to be used at all. All my drivers are up to date I have tried firefox troubleshoot mode, which makes no difference full screen mode or not makes no difference (its a 4k screen so I wondered if it was doing some kind of upscaling) makes no difference whether I run on external monitor or internal. Also makes no difference whether the laptop is connected to my thunderbolt dock or not. I can run the same content side by side in Chrome. Chrome displays the video smoothly with no glitches at all and consumes around 16% CPU (still no Nvidia GPU utilisation)

This problem does not happen on my other PC, a 5 year old Intel NUC, with i5 cpu, also running win 10 connected to my TV.

If i can't fix this I will have to very reluctantly revert to Chrome for video streaming I havent worked uot how to obtain the troubleshooting info to share but happy to do this if necessary

many thanks John

How do I delete the copy w/ losing the original?

I have the latest version downloaded, I have tried debugging, private windows, cache and cookie clear, reinstalled/reset firefox, restarted my computer, updated my GPU drivers, changed every setting such as autoplay, hardware acceleration etc., disabled all enhancements, and more.

Nothing fixes this. I get error codes on every site i try, twitch, streamable, etc. None play videos.

I've some search engines which was configured a lot of years ago (or maybe was imported from another browser many years ago). They are working in address bar (e.g. I can enter there "cve something", press Enter and get redirected to https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=something), but not listed neither in about:preferences#search nor in my profile's search.json.mozlz4 (I've unpacked and checked it - it contents does match about:preferences#search). I've tried to grep for "cvekey.cgi" in my profile folder but get no results (I suppose these "hidden" search engines are stored in some sqlite file).

I'd like to have these hidden search engines listed in about:preferences#search. I can even manually re-add them, but how can I find complete list of all configured search engines?

Hello folks,

I had 1025 tabs open in FF, in various groups using SimpleTabGroup. Somehow I've managed to get into a situation where, when I start FF, I get just three or four of my most recently used tabs on startup.

I have no idea how to get back to the 1025 tabs I really want, but when I close FF I'm asked whether I want to close 1025 tabs, so hopefully they're still available somehow...

Any advice gratefully received!

Thanks in advance.

NB: Firefox 103.0 (64 bit). Xubuntu Linux.

A few days ago, my Windows laptop was attacked by Trojan virus. Windows Defender totally disabled the laptop, and I could not even press a key. I had hard disk destroyed and the laptop, too. Because I intended to buy a Mac in a few months anyway. I attempted FF download twice, no luck. I think the M1 chip may not be silicon chip that FF supports.

Do you know a way to get my BOOKMARKS so I can export to Safari? Does FF keep them?

I have a backup of all my documents and I included bookmarks in that, on a removable hard drive USB3.0 The MAC doesn't have a slot for 3.0. Will require having to buy something from Apple to accommodate it.

Hate to do that if it's a fool's errand. I appreciate your advice. Senior citizen in over her head.

I have noticed for several months now that Firefox NO LONGER downloads to the selected default folder - DOWNLOADS. Evidently this is another area where firefox broke something while fixing something else that likely wasn't broke.

I have the default download folder set to DOWNLOADS but firefox no longer does it that way. Instead, it defaults to the last folder to which I downloaded something and otherwise ignores the default setting.

I'm testing FF102 for rollout in September and working through various issues. The latest one I've come across is the edit bookmark "button" on the right of the URL bar. It's a blank space on the URL bar, and when hovered over is a highlighted blank space. After clicking it twice it displays the Edit book mark menu.

How can I remove it completely? I've look at about:config and nothing stands out as obvious to me controlling this and I can't find a setting for it.

The image below shows the highlighted blank icon space.

This code in userChrome.css worked in FF91 but only hides the icon in FF102.

#star-button { display:none !important; }


Thanks
