NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading

Just now I tried to make a payment to a site but the payment pop up was blocked but I don't have a pop up blocker loaded. I have had a similar experience at various times when I want to make a card payment to sites where my details are not pre stored. I can make payments to the same sites using my mobile so it must be laptop related. Not sure which security systems to check, laptop, browser or Norton . Any ideas? Many thanks Jeremy

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Hi

Question I am redoing my computer and have considered restarting firefox at the same time being I have been on the same profile for ages and figured might be worth just restarting with a new profile.

Now I know I can import bookmarks and such into the new profile after backing them up of course.

Question I have regards passwords and log ins.

I remember some time back I had lost some files including these and was able to restore them from an old back up of the profile. I think it was 2 files.

Are these files profile specific or can they be backed up on this profile and then copied into a new profile and work OK??

Or I just saw EXPORT LOGINS if I use this will it back up all my logins and then allot me to import them into the new profile like the bookmarks back up?

Thanks

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

Is there a way for me to extend the drop-down window on the Firefox browser from the hamburger icon? I don't enjoy having to scroll down through the menu to have to access things like Options or Help when the menu drop-down could just drop down further so I don't have to scroll down. Is there a way I can customize this, or no?

Attached is a screenshot of the menu I'm talking about, with a circle

Thanks!

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!

good day! I really like your browser and enjoy working with it. I am a website developer and I really like your tools for webmasters!

But recently I have encountered a critical problem! I have a site on my local server (Denwer WAMP) that I'm working on.

I make changes to the site's css and see how it is displayed in firefox.

But there are no changes-through the inspector you can't see that I changed something in the css. At the same time, if I open the same site in another browser, for example, in Chrome, all the changes are visible. And firefox does not display until you completely clear the site you are working on from the history, because even a forced update via ctrl+shift+r does not give results!

look at the picture - an empty block appeared in chrome, but in firwefox it simply does not show css

I exported my passwords from dashlane to a csv. The only information in the csv is url, domain, username, password. It is missing the form action, time stamps, and guid. Importing from file did not work. I re-ordered the info so it was in "url","username","password","httpRealm","formActionOrigin","guid","timeCreated","timeLastUsed","timePasswordChanged" format (once again, missing the last 5 fields). I made some fake passwords in firefox to see the format. form action was blank anyways. I tried copying the time info fields (from the fake passwords I made) to my csv, still didn't work. I think I probably need a guid? I tried leaving it blank, didn't work. I tried putting in "unk", didn't work.


I give up, please, how do I import passwords from Dashlane? I can export in json, excel, and csv.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

Just loading https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges or most pages under the same Best Colleges section - the webpage appears, though it doesn't respond to mouse clicks, and then goes blank after about 1/2 second.

I've tried disabling every add-on and restarting - nothing changes.

Tools>Web Developer>Page Source shows 2800+ lines of content - what should be showing.

Recording the status in slow motion, I see "www.usnews.com" on a blank page, then content appears with "Waiting for www.usnews.com" then "Read tags.tiqcdn.com" then content disappears just as it switches to "Waiting for cse.google.com". No status messages after that.

The blue dot on the left of the tab moves back and forth and then stops right when the screen blanks.

Everything's fine in Chrome, Edge, and IE.

The USNews home page and all news article I click to load without issues.

I've disabled anti-virus and Malwarebytes, to no effect.

Very often I need to delete cookies from web sites so the sites won't remember me. The cookies in private tabs never show up in "Privacy & Security / Cookies and Site Data" (so I can't delete them from there), and they don't go away when I close the tabs or windows. It seems that I can only get rid of them by shutting down Firefox - a horrible solution when I have many other tabs and windows open.

I can't believe that no way exists to delete cookies (and local storage) in private windows and tabs. Does anyone know some way to do that?
