I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

I created my Firefox account with an old email address that is no longer accessible and will never be accessible again. I added a secondary email address long ago and made it primary. My account is logged in on my phone and my old laptop, both need repair, laptop data is probably gone. I logged in on my new laptop and a tablet, but had to change the password. Now Firefox does not know my logins and passwords, history, settings and preferences, bookmarks. It seems as if I have created a new account. How can I regain access to my old data?

After a deletion of a profile; an attempt to sync back the preferences results in the search bar having the default engine not synchronised. It is overwritten to Google, despite doing sync for DuckDuckGo. I have done a parallel test on the "tracking protection" and the preference for that one does sync. Thank you for any suggestions!

EDIT: The DuckDuckGo addon accomplishes the desired effect. However, it only hides the problem.

I recently installed version 78.02 of Firefox as a second copy. The first copy is version 67.04. I left the older version as the default until I had the new version customized. I have tried to make version 78.0.2 the default version, but version 67.0.4 remains the default. I have tried both from inside of Firefox in the options menu, and from the program defaults in the Windows 7 control panel. Neither has any effect and version 67.0.4 remains the default. How do I get version 78.0.2 to be the default without uninstalling version 67.0.4?

After the last update a few days ago, I have had to go into privacy and security and reset everything, plus go into about:config and reset media.autoplay also. Still, even if the main video on a page is blocked, the little floating video remains and the sliding and floating ads and such still remain. I really need a fix for this. I do research online for a living, and having to close all these annoyances all the time is costing me time, thus money.

How do I now stop all this? Even on this page, an annoying drop-over is annoying me. Time is money, and every second counts in my work. Any help would be appreciated. TIA
