I can't seem to get the firefox multi-account containers add-on to work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times and closing a re-opening the browser. I've tried disabling all other add-ons in case they were interfering and, as far as I know, I have the most recent version of the browser. It shows it installing and then nothing happens and the container symbol doesn't show up. What's going wrong?

When a Google search is done in Firefox, a pop up appears stating 'We're updating our terms of service. Get to know our new terms before they take effect on Mar 31 2020' and there are 'review' and 'got it' options.

I click 'got it' but the pop re-appears the next time the browser is opened and Googled is used again.

Is there a way to permanently block this pop-up from re-appearing?

After the most recent Firefox updates, I wasn't able to load Facebook anymore, so I looked up whether I could reinstall Firefox without losing all my bookmarks and settings. I followed the advice given on this support page by renaming the folder "OldFirefox" and then reinstalling Firefox, but everything has been lost (or at least seems to be). What I don't understand is when I right click over the new Firefox icon (after the reinstall) and look at the properties, instead of pointing to the folder ...Mozilla/Firefox.exe, it's pointing to ....OldFirefox/Firefox.exe. It's as if the install didn't create a new Mozilla folder in the directory, even though it was supposed to during the install. Is there a way to get back what I lost? I feel like I'm going to throw up right now. I had an enormous amount of things bookmarked and saved. Thanks for any help.

Refreshed Firefox on my computer after getting a message that it was performing slowly. Now I am unable to open private browsing.

If I type in about:privatebrowsing then I get the private browsing screen however if I type anything in to that screen to search for it reverts to normal browsing.

I’m a silver surfer so not the most technically minded but does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get private browsing back. Have used Firefox for quite a long time with no issues before this so don’t really want to change to a different browser.

Can confirm using Windows 7.

Thanking you in anticipation.

It is normal that even with the updated core firefox consumes 2 times more power than chrome?

As an experiment, I opened both browsers (firefox 67.0 and chrome 74.0.3729.169) in incognito mode. All add-ons were disabled. Went to the same page with the video and started playback at the same time. Both Windows were of equal size and worked the same period of time (about 8 hours). Based on the results, firefox consumed almost 2 times more energy, and therefore consumed significantly more resources. Is this normal, or is there some way to fix it?

After doing an update it would have been nice to receive a notification to let me know that I should restart the browser but instead I am being prevented from opening a link in a new tab just because I have updated the browser among other things in the background. This is will only serve to discourage me from doing an update while I'm using the browser. Now it says that I could have restored the session but as you tell by the little purple mask in the top right corner of the image I've uploaded- I was using the browser in Private-mode so that won't happen and I will get a "Firefox is having trouble restoring your tabs" message if I did a reboot. I had typed whole bunch of stuff in one tab and I had ended up loosing that because I couldn't open a link in a new tab (using Ctrl+left-Click). Now even if a person isn't in Private-mode there are still plenty of reasons for not doing a reboot right after an update like it's possible that a person has to wait for internet access forcing a reboot like this will only make people curse the developers. In my case obviously I was in a private session and I wanted to finish working on something before doing a reboot and in the mean time I should be able to use the browser normally like would be able to use it if I hadn't done an update. In short people shouldn't be prevented from opening a link in new tab just because they've updated the browser. That should go without saying.

Just to mess with the user there's a nice little cartoon on the left with an unplugged extension cord.

After the latest update Firefox stores cookies and site data even in always private and the content blocking set to custom with everything set it the highest settings. Example i can check my email at outlook com then sign out click forget, then close the browser. then open it and it loads my email account without signing in. The only way it can do that is, the browser is storing cookies and site data. the only way to prevent it from doing this is to do everything i described then open the privacy settings and clear cookies, and site data and clear history, two times. Firefox like this is the most unsecured browser. it was a lot better before all these changes. It was a good idea, but it's caused a lot of troubles with security issues for me.

I updated to Firefox 66 on Linux yesterday. I don't know if it's the browser version, but I noticed that nytimes.com started picking up that I'm browsing the site in private mode.

Interestingly, this is something that used to happen on my Chrome book when I used private mode, but this on Firefox, this is a first for me. It may well be that nytimes changed their code to do this, but I wonder upgrade to FF 66 contributed to this.

In any case, I wonder how a site can pick up if the user is browsing in private mode.

I use Firefox in private browsing by default. However, that means that I always have to login to any website, which can be a pain.

I was wondering if there is some middle ground. For example, if I could whitelist cookies from a specific domain to persist across private mode sessions or to be imported from non-private browsing. I am aware that I could be tracked by those domains, but that is a compromise I'm happy with.

Using Ubuntu 18.04.1 on both my main device and on a virtual machine. The Private Browsing Window feature previously worked on my main device and is currently working on my virtual machine. I am able to select the feature on both OS, but on the main device (or OS on the physical device) a normal browsing window opens instead of a private browsing window. IPv6 is turned off and using a VPN. Any assistance is appreciated.

Memory leak in Private mode

Hello, I'm here more to report a bug than to ask a question, but I couldn't get myself to work with Bugzilla, it asks too many things.

So you know how sometimes you open a bunch of tabs in "Private Browsing" just so you have a separate window to close everything at once when it's not needed anymore, well usually in the case of Chrome and Edge, it clears the ram that window was using, instantly no problem... Firefox doesn't really do that and I find it quite worrying if you call it "Private browsing", in fact, closing tabs doesn't really seem to close them at all!

In chrome, when you close 10 tabs you see the ram usage dropping quite clearly, with Firefox it just stays there and it's even worse when I close the whole private window and because I have a normal Firefox window still open, it doesn't clear any ram!

Yesterday I had windows explorer crash because of this and it closed word while I was working on it, go to task manager and Firefox is using 5GB of ram with 5 tabs open... Every damn day I use lots of tabs I have to close Firefox completely and open it again with the same goddamn saved tabs to clear 3gb of memory or more!

Really I want to like this browser, but first of all, this must be a horrible programming practice and second I doubt this is safe at all, keeping closed tabs for hours in memory waiting for the program to close can't be safe, it just can't!

How to reproduce this memory leak? Have Firefox with a normal window open, then open another normal or private browsing window, open a bunch of tabs there, watch memory usage rise, then close that window and watch it not drop at all. Way around it? Close Firefox and re-open. Could it be an add-on bug? Maybe, you tell me if it works with you, but it would still mean there's a bug with Firefox itself.

Really simple, I have no idea why this is a thing, isn't it supposed to have a separate process that clears memory when you close it? I have my doubts it's working like that.
