I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

My system: AMD A9-9425 RadeonR5,5 Compute Cores 2C+3G 3,10GHz

                   8GB of ram 7.45 usable
                   WIN 10 Home Ver. 1909         {64 bit}
                  OS Build 18363.997

I have had Firefox set to delete cookies upon closure for several years now. I recently noticed that some cookies were present as soon as the browser was opened, which should not be happening.

This set of cookies reappears every time I open Firefox, even if I manually delete all the cookies, and even if I delete the cookies.sqlite file in between closing Firefox and reopening it.

This problem occurs on two machines with Firefox. One with Windows 7 and one with Windows 10. I have Sync configured to keep bookmarks the same on both machines. I was wondering if this may have something to do with it, as the same set of 'zombie cookies' keeps reappearing on both machines?

1/ Firefox will not play any videos from Youtube.

   a/ I am NOT in Youtube restricted mode.
   b/ I have DuckDuckGo and AdBlock activated. Deactivating these does not affect this behavior.

2/ Other browsers (both Chrome and Edge) will play those same videos.

Thanks for assistance!

Замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на изменения

Мной в очередной раз обнаружена замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию, сделанная без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на эти изменения. Изменения произошли после обновления браузера. Я возмущен и намерен не стесняться в выражениях своего возмущения. За каким хреном собачьим в свою пользу и какой кретин додумался мне навязывать в качестве главного иной поисковый сервис и иную главную страницу, чем те, которые были назначены мной и использовались до автоматического обновления браузера? Каким образом и почему вместо сделанного мной выбора в качестве поиска по умолчанию и в качестве домашней страницы установлен продукт Yandex LLC, который в той реализации, в какой он мне поставлен, по моему субъективному мнению является грязной помойкой новостей, нерелевантных моим интересам, без спроса шпионящим ресурсом, пропагандонским сервисом, трусливо замалчивающим главные с моей точки зрения события, но зато напичканный баннерами с третьесортной рекламой и такого же сорта новостями, заодно с кучей активных ссылок на bloatware, устанавливающихся точно таким же образом, как и этот поисковый по недоразумению сервис и эта ненужная мне домашняя страница браузера по умолчанию? Меня очень интересует, кто с больной головы на здоровую решил, что это можно делать, не спрашивая меня и моего разрешения, исходя даже из самых лучших побуждений облегчить мне задачу выбора поставщика информационных услуг? Кто, каким образом и на каком основании осуществил эту замену настроек? Повторю описание ситуации особо одаренным альтернативно. Устанавливая браузер, я выбрал язык английский и поисковый сервис Google. И он тоже не идеален, но это мой выбор. Я разберусь, чем мне пользоваться - не разработчики сервиса и ПО, не поставщики сервиса должны в этом разбираться и тем более что-то предпринимать слабо приспособленными для этого органами деятельности и даже не господь Б-г, а я. Спрашивается: на основании чего и каким образом поставка обновления браузера оказывается устроенной таким интересным способом, что я, однажды прекрасным утром открывая свой браузер, снова обнаруживаю абсолютно не устраивающие меня предварительные настройки обновленного программного продукта, которые не делал ни я, ни кто либо вместо меня со стороны пользовательского интерфейса? Это что - моль от соседей залетела и занесла? Это тараканы с помойки приползли и притащили инфекцию? Если в доме подметено, то почему бы однажды не отказать себе в привычке заходить, не переобувась в чистое. Тем более - в чужом доме. Почему бы однажды не перестать влезать без спросу, как это бывает в обыкновении определенной категории людей, и взять за хорошее правило ничего не менять в моих настройках приобретенной мной системы, включая настройки приложения, установленные мной, до получения такой просьбы и делать только по получении согласия на действия, после предварительного полного информирования о результатах тех действий, которые будут произведены? Как эта простота вмешательства стала возможной и как оградить себя от девиантного поведения? И третий раз. Кто, каким образом и на основании чего бесцеремонно навязывает мне то, что я не делал и не собирался делать? И, наконец, основной вопрос - как эти девиации исключить в дальнейшем, не затрачивая личное время на перенастройки того что уже один раз настроено мной по моему выбору, не тратя время на скандальные публикации, и не прибегая к отказу от Firefox?

Ever since my Firefox updated on my windows 10 I have been having a lot of problems. Very slow loading times, any video I watch (whether it is youtube, twitch, hulu, etc.) buffers constantly, and if i have even only 2 tabs open i get the message in the yellow bar saying a webpage is slowing down your browser. I have tried a few different things; virus scan, checking installed programs to make sure nothing thats not suppose to be there is there, running firefox with add-ons disabled to see if that helps (didnt change anything), and restarting firefox. So asking for help on this, any solutions or insights are very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hello All,

I've been having random firefox customization resets. I'm calling it random because I can't spot a patten for when it happens. Its been happening for months. Restarting firefox and this pc doesn't seem to cause it. But shutting down for a longer period of time seems like its more likley to happen, I'm talking 7+ hours.

Whats getting reset

  • Welcome to Firefox tab opens
  • Firefox Privacy Notice tab opens
  • Theme is reset but is still marked as selected
  • Addons are reset but still installed/enabled
  • Tab/Home Options reset
  • Layout of file menu reset (downloads,home,reload,addons,ect)

What I've tried

  • Firefox refresh (A week ago, I loaded back the same addons I had before, not sure if they could be doing this)
  • Check the prefs.js is not locked/readonly
  • I don't have a user.js

Hello!

     So this might be a very simple thing I've clearly skimmed over in the many times I've searched. Or perhaps I didn't enter the magic words into Google just that special way to get the help I desire...

     I'm playing with Addon and Extentions weighing the pro's and con's of different Addons serving the same relative purpose. It's pretty irritating the method I am currently using, downloading an Addon and then going in, and then disable the one I downloaded to grab the next to avoid bad results that can arise from overlapping Addons working on the same functional area. I wanted to know if there was a means in which I could disable the automatic enabling of Addons when I add them from the default Firefox site?

Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

When I use Firefox 78 all requests are allowed. When I use FF 79, some (few) requests are blocked. Those requests break the page from loading properly. There are no messages in the console that suggest anything is being blocked. And the network tab just shows "blocked" on the request with no indication why it was blocked. I have not requested those URLs be blocked and the context menu has no "Unblock" option. Other requests that were slightly before and very similar looking were not blocked, some that come after and look similar are not blocked.

I have disabled all blocking features in Security & Privacy. Still blocked. (I don't think it was S&P blocking, there are no warnings etc.)

Otherwise, this an "out of the box" install with no changes made. Myself and a colleague are having the same problem with the same URLs being blocked. Other browsers, and earlier versions of FF are fine. Only FF 79 is experiencing the problem. I read the release notes, nothing stood out to me as a reason to block anything without an explanation.

(You won't be able to browse to our Jira, we 403 any requests from the internet. And these resources causing the problem are only needed after you login.)

Any suggestions on how to work out why those specific requests are blocked??
