Looking for any help or advice,

I only use 2 addons in firefox, they are Bitdefender Wallet and Adblock and since the last Firefox update I cannot get either working. I can install adblock, it will work until the browser is closed, next time I open the browser it will be disabled with no option to re enable it and no explanation as to why it was disabled. I have tried a few addons as a test and after the browser is closed all will be automatically disabled. With Bitdefender wallet trying to install the extension results in an error of the download is corrupt.

I have used Firefox for years with both of these options and no errors. To try and fix I have reinstalled both Firefox and Bitdefender but the issue remains the same.

Current Firefox build is at 84.0.2

Any advise would be brilliant as I really do not want to resort to Chrome (which is working perfectly).

Many thanks.

Pocket 'View List' stopped working in Firefox

I've been using pocket daily for a long time, and just recently the 'View List' feature (i.e. view the pocket website page with my saved links) stopped working in Firefox. That is accessed in the normal way using the Pocket icon in the address bar, or with the link: https://app.getpocket.com/ - they both go to the same address.

When that Pocket 'View List' page is accessed, it gives all indications of having loaded fine, but all that shows is a completely blank white page with the horizontal line and faintly greyer section at the top of the page, and absolutely nothing else.

Firefox version: 78.6.1esr

I'm pretty sure this was broken on a recent update (of Firefox). I'm also pretty sure many other things were broken in Firefox by recent updates - never had Firefox so damaged by an update before - things like on Amazon website pages (to pick something well known), product images randomly don't load (refreshing gets them to load), pages randomly display garbage (refreshing brings them back), etc, pages load fast but elements on page are not active (can't be clicked) for several seconds on complicated pages like an Amazon product page - never had this happen before recent Firefox update - I don't know if this is all related, but it feels like it is (and that Firefox has been broken in many ways only recently).

All these things, including viewing the pocket list, still work fine in Chrome.

Anyone have the post issue in Firefox? Or the other issues just recently? Is there a fix for this?

Thanks

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Pro like device (it's a Vaio Canvas). I have a bluetooth keyboard that is always connected, but I often just use it as a tablet. I've tried disconnecting the physical keyboard but I still get the same behaviour.

Using touchscreen, I select a text box (or URL bar/search box etc), normally the On-screen Keybard (OSK) comes up and lets me type. Right now, with FF it pops up and then promptly disappears.

This makes FF completely unusable using touchscreen/tablet mode. I have switched to using chrome on this device - I've tested other browsers too and none exhibit this behaviour. Could it be my settings?

When Facebook updated their system a few months ago, running it on firefox with windows 10 on a pc crashes mozilla. It happens if you are logged into FB for some length of time (say an hour). I have no extensions operating just plain firefox. I turned on task manager inside firefox to watch what happened over time along with windows task manager. Within a half hour, FB is using high energy impact and just about all available memory in the system and filled the cache as well. Eventually it just freezes firefox and I have to kill the program go back and clear the cache and often do a complete refresh of firefox

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

Hi community,

I tried using my new external webcam on Google Meet but the browser could not detect it, I could only see the integrated one. First I thought there was something wrong with the new webcam but then I found out it works normally on Microsoft Edge. Anyone has an idea where the problem lies?

After I updated to the newest Firefox on dec. 16, 2020, my computer began to operate at a terribly slow pace. Not just Firefox, everything. I worked with Apple senior advisors and their engineers to try to isolate what could be wrong. In my Mac activity monitor, the kernel_task was using over 500% of the CPU, even with no browser or application open. After 2 or 3 weeks of checking everything, Apple told me it was Firefox that was causing the slowness. I threw Firefox in the trash but nothing improved. I realized that throwing just the application in the trash did not eliminate all of Firefox, so I reinstalled it and then tried to remove anything related to Firefox from my computer. I’m not sure if I got everything, but the situation stayed the same. I reinstalled Firefox and went through all the solutions that I found on these pages. Nothing has helped. My cpu still shows amazingly high activity even when nothing is open. I cannot figure out what to do and my computer is working so slowly it is essentially useless to me. Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions?

When I use firefox last couple of days, my pc runs particually slow and firefox reguarlay goes into not responding. I check task manager and my firefox always appears to have multiple processes open whether i have 4 tabs open or 1, It appears on taske manager like : Firefox (Logo) (6), and you can expand it so you can see each process individually. I search online and it reccomended i go on firefox setting on about:preferneces and ive set my process limit to one. However on task manager it still says i have 5 firefox process running. I am not the most tech savy however so dontknow if these multiple processes are the cause to my laptop runing slow. I have attached some images so my description makes sense. Thanks, Sean :)

Hello Folks,

I have been using keyword searches setup as bookmarks since Netscape 4 and IE 3. Something like "g" -> google.com/search?query=%s. For some reason, Firefox will sometimes correctly return a search for "test" when typing "g test" but will often return a search for "g test". This is a fairly recent issue with a function that previously worked since the inception of the browser. Why is Firefox misunderstanding the semantics of my keyword search and how do I workaround this bug?

Thanks

hi, I'm having problems with Firefox on my Mac - every time Firefox is shut down, I have to relog in and authenticate myself and all my settings have gone so I have to redo them again. I have tools that I use for work that use certain settings else they don't work so I have to redo them every time I reopen the browser or shut my machine down. anyone know why this might be the case?

I don't know if it's linked but when I started using this current machine last year and loaded everything on, Firefox is sitting under 'locations' rather than applications and I don't seem to able to install it anywhere else - see image attached.

Many thanks.

OS: Catalina Model: iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) (tested on Macbook pro 2018 and 2011 too) Firefox: 84.0.2

Expected functionality: First expand the window to full screen using the green window control. The expectation is that the tab and tool bars will eventually hide, however firefox implements this - by sliding up when scrolling or just sliding up and autohiding after a short time. The tab bar should then reappear when the mouse move to the top of the screen.

Functionality Observed: Tab and tool bars never autohide. They are always there. The only way to that they hide is when a video (YouTube, Netflix) fullscreen controls are selected. Otherwise they are there on every page and that is not the expected behavior. Id like every page to autohide the top bars (similar to what all tablet/mobile device browsers do).

Settings verified: browser.fullscreen.authide= true (see image). Hide toolbars is checked (see image).

Issue I have found posted on this do not provide a concise reason as to why this behavior exists when all settings are properly set.
