Like the title states, whether it be the search bar, url bar or any other text field the first key stroke of input is not registered and doesn't display. Once I've begun to type the missed stroke happens and then all is fine until I pause typing for around 30 seconds then the missed stroke happens again, otherwise I can continually type with no issues. This began a couple months ago and I assumed it was the old keyboard I was using so I bought a new one and the problem still persists. This issue is exclusive to Firefox and no other program or browsers on Windows 10. Firefox is fully updated, Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) at the time of writing this. I have "refreshed" Firefox and removed all add-ons etc. and the problem still exists. Thanks.

Hello,

When my VPN client Private Internet Access drops its connection to the VPN server, all the tabs I have open in Firefox say they have crashed. I can restore the pages by simply refreshing, but it didn't used to be like this. This doesn't happen if I turn off wifi or manually disconnect the VPN, only if the VPN drops the connection. Very strange.

My environment: - Mac Mini M1 2020 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD - MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 - PIA MacOS client 3.1.2 (build 06767) - Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit) -- ublock origin 1.39.0 -- greasemonkey 4.11

Hopefully you can reproduce and fix it.

Ésta, es una sugerencia de implementación de funciones para el Firefox Daylight.

This is a feature implementation suggestion for Firefox Daylight.

Estoy convencido de que sería un gran avance el poder contar con una función automática activable/desactivable que lograra un "modo oscuro" durante la visita de cualquier página web.

I am convinced that it would be a great advance to have an automatic activated/deactivated function that achieves a "dark mode" during the visit of any web page.

Se trataría de una función similar a la que ya disponen algunos otros grandes Buscadores como, por ejemplo, pueda ser Opera...

It would be a function similar to that already available to some other large Search Engines, such as Opera...

De esta manera, Firefox también se sumaría a la corriente por la defensa de la salud visual al utilizar Internet.

In this way, Firefox would also join the trend for the defense of visual health when using the Internet.

Un guiño para cualquier otro ser humano inteligente: ésta misma página de Firefox para la escritura de mensajes, está de blanco riguroso y cegador. Y no es que lo blanco y brillante sea algo malo, es que hablamos de pantallas cargadas de luminosidad que agotan nuestra vista. "Negro sobre blanco" para describir la posibilidad de leer un texto sobre papel físico (un libro) es una cosa. "Negro sobre blanco" para captar la lectura de la imagen proyectada por una pantalla electrónica es otra cosa muy diferente. A mi juicio, demasiado diferente.

A nod to any other intelligent human being: this very Firefox page for writing messages, is in stark and blinding white. And it is not that white and bright is a bad thing, it is that we are talking about screens loaded with luminosity that exhaust our eyesight. "Black on white" to describe the ability to read a text on physical paper (a book) is one thing. "Black on white" to capture the reading of the image projected by an electronic screen is quite another thing. In my opinion, too different.

Es por esta razón por la que ruego que sean informados los ingenieros de Firefox sobre esta petición.

It is for this reason that I ask that Firefox engineers be informed about this request.

After reading up on procedures (but failing to follow links), I decided to completely delete all my passwords. Let me back up a minute, last week I downloaded the .csv file of my passwords, because after 10 or 12 years, I needed to clean them up. I had 486 saved passwords, out of which I deleted all but 123. I did not want to try that in the browser, actually I did, but after about 20 I gave up because I realized how long it would take.

So anyway, I got ready to finish up, and I deleted my browser copy, then tried to upload the corrected copy. However every time I get an error "Something went wrong try again". So as my plan was, I deleted my Chrome passwords (they should be the same), then uploaded the corrected copy. It said "Upload successful" or somethiing like that, I waited five minutes, for Chrome to finish syncing and all that, then tried to import from Chrome, it imported 3 passwords.

But now, here's the big problem, I follow the directions I have found in this site, but once I click the hamburger, the next link does not exist. When I go another way, none of the links exist. I have searched all over the settings pages, and nowhere is there the option to upload a .csv file, I can import from another browser all day, but not upload. So what's going on?

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.

I also get too many ads cutting me out of what I'm doing, & since then, my phone charges really slowly!!! I was hoping having Firefox would stop the ads.

Hello, After one of the last updates of november I started having 20-50 processes for each firefox profile that I use. In previous versions I used 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart' and 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' and set them to false, to limit the number of processes. But now, even though I removed these configurations, I have no option to control how much RAM and processes firefox uses - the option to set the content processes is missing from the settings page too. Another thing that I noticed is that for some reason, in most of my profiles, container tabs can't be enabled.

Hope you can help, Rotem.

Topic: Bookmarks and Tabs I recently saved my tab sessions in several bookmarks which I named per topic - eg Bookmark name 'Groupon Tabs', which contains several tabs of Groupon pages I am interested in, to look at later. Today I saw a page which I want to save by adding it to this bookmark. But when I click on 'Groupon tabs' nothing happens - I was expecting to see the list of tabs saved, but I cannot find them. So the question is: a) how can I open eg 'Groupon' tab so I have access to all the tabs it contains b) how do I add a new tab to this bookmark Many thanks in advance.

Have Firefox blocked this and/or are there ways users can protect themselves?

"14 new types of 'XS-Leak' cross-site leak attacks against modern web browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox."

"These types of side-channel attacks are called 'XS-Leaks,' and allow attacks to bypass the 'same-origin' policy in web browsers so that a malicious website can steal info in the background from a trusted website where the user enters information.

"The principle of an XS-Leak is to use such side-channels available on the web to reveal sensitive information about users, such as their data in other web applications, details about their local environment, or internal networks they are connected to," explains the XS-Leaks wiki.

For example, an XS-Leak attack could help a background site siphon the email inbox contents from an active tab used for accessing webmail."

Recently lost all login/password data in firefox. After browsing the support I discovered that I have a corrupt logins.json file, around 270kb in size, and a logins.json file around 10kb in size.

Renaming the corrupt file to logins.json doesn't seem to recover the passwords/logins (even temporarily). Tried rolling firefox back to an older version and that didn't work either.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the corrupt file?

Thanks.

Each icon is larger than the previous one. And if possible, please work on firefox OS too.
