Seems that youtube has taken away the ability to use the old layout with many columns so it wants to show annoyingly large things on the screen and with way too few columns. (Yes, strange enough, I want to see more than 2 columns on a 65" display)

Thus the extension that I was using earlier to force youtube to use old layout obviously no longer works.

I found that if I set the zoom to 67% and remove the checkbox that allows the site to set own fonts and sizes, along with using font 24 as minimum size seems to produce a readable text size and yet show 6 videos/column.

But I do not want to have other sites like that, so would want to apply it only to youtube as most other sites have actually fairly ok font sizes compared to other elements on the page and ok at 100% zoom level.

At several occasions, but not in a reproducible manner, when I open pages' links (or bookmarks toolbar's links) using middle-click button (i.e. using "Open Link in a new tab"), the tab opens up, shows the URL it should load, but seems to stop there and never actually loads the website. Sometimes, the URL won't even show up in the omnibar. When this happens, the "Reload current page" is grayed out, so I need to click the omnibar and hit enter to force the URL to load, or click the original link again. Most of the time, reclicking with middle button on the same link works fine again. I did not see any common pattern regarding which links generate this behavior or not, but I will keep trying to find out.

This behavior does occur even in safe-mode (all addons disabled).

Hi, are the files key4.dab logins.json

generated on a 64bit Firefox compatible with a 32 bit version?

The reason is that in the 32 bit one all my "user & PW" data .... abruptly vanished. So I wished to use the existing data to restore the configuration.

Both PC are running LINUX: - 64bit has Linux Mint - 32 bit has Kubuntu

Thanks in advance for your time! Alberto

Hi All,

For some reason, I have two versions of Firefox showing in my Programs and Features, on Windows 7.

Version 74.0, installed 13/03/2020, and version 80.0, installed 28/08/2020.

I've seen another topic mentioning this problem for older versions, and tried using a Registry Cleaner as mentioned in that one - but it has made no difference, and both versions are still there.

I'm wary of trying to uninstall the 74.0 version using the Firefox uninstaller, as when I start that there is no mention of it just uninstalling 74.0 - it gives the impression it is uninstalling all versions, which is not something I want.

I just don't need two versions of Firefox on my PC, especially when the older version is no longer used.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Two days ago, I updated my system memory from 8GB to 16GB. As soon as I did so, on both Fedora 31 and Windows 7, Firefox became extremely unstable - as though it was running out of resources extremely quickly. On Fedora, I cannot browse at all - immediately upon loading a page, the tab crashes, including internal pages. On Windows, I can get away with some browsing - although crashes are still common.

For now, I'm going to disable hardware acceleration. However, I'd like to further analyse this and see if I can't find a fix.

To date, I have tried the following:

- Updated to firefox v86 (This worsened the problem, and I downgraded to v74)

- Removed and reinstalled my GPU drivers (no change)

- Disabled paging on my Windows system, and moved hiberfil.sys to a drive with more space using symlinks (no change)

- Increased swap space on my Fedora system (made things worse. Don't fuck around with swap if you don't know what you're doing, please)

- Moved profiles out of the appdata dir and created a new, blank profile (no change)

- Completed a full round of Memtest+x86 with no issues

Below are a set of six crash logs. There are more, but information overload. They are fairly similar, but I lack the familiarity with the Mozilla codebase to properly examine them.
