Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

I know this is a longshot. I used Firefox for the last couple of years with Seagull Scientific's BarTender software on my Windows 7 pc. Now my PC was wiped out and Windows 10 as part of my company's initiative to get everyone up to Windows 10. BarTender uses a driver to talk to your print drivers and provide a status back to the BarTender server and webpage that we use. After the move to Windows 10 Firefox will not work with BarTender. It works in MS Edge and Chrome.

 I've got a ticket into Seagull Scientific and I can foresee how this will go.  They will point me back to Firefox and then I'll get pointed back to the vendor.   I know it will be hard to find someone with a similar issue.  But maybe someone had some issue with another driver, etc that stopped talking to Firefox.   
I've tried to turn off all of Firefox's protection stuff that might be interfering and still not working. 
I have used Firefox and prefer it over any others.   But I also don't like the idea of having to change browsers depending on what I'm doing.   Besides, this software I have to regularly use.   So if I can't find a solution I may have to abandon use of Firefox.

New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

"86" Firefox to give us options about address bar or ability to replace it with add-on

I'm really beginning to wonder why I use Firefox. For years I've felt violently abused (it's not an exaggeration in my head) by the UI team who lord over it in a totalitarian way instead of just giving us options to not be constantly humiliated every day we use it.

The address bar has become my worst enemy lately. I keep staving off "86ing" Firefox from my life by editing the CSS this and that, when it worked just fine for years, but it changes and every time for the worse. How can we effectively get Firefox to give us options? Why are options so bad? Why do we not deserve options? I want to know how we can apply pressure on the institution to make FF usable again.

Here are a few examples, the last is the worst of them:

1) I want to have an X button on tabs, I just want to be able to delete a tab? Why can't I have an option for this? (I have to use crazy CSS script. Normal people don't go to that length. I would not adopt FF out of the box today.)

2) Many complain about the address bar that freaks out whenever you touch it. I want an option to disable that. (Again I have a CSS script that makes it act like normal productivity software. That's insane. Why can't we have an option to make the address bar behave like a normal HTML form element? I just want an option.)

3) As of FF 86 I can no longer use the address bar to perform searches. I've added the Search bar to my UI so I can do searches, but the browser still defaults to the address bar, so I have to click over to the Search bar. And if I use the address bar by accident, it laughs at me and refuses to process my search. I just want to be able to search with an address bar. I remember years ago having to remove the search bar because it would no longer search, but the address bar would search. My radical solution was to amputate the search bar. Now I'm in the complete opposite situation where the search bar searches but the address bar doesn't search. Again, I just want an option to be able to apply searches with my browser.

I just want an option for FF to not be aggressively hostile to me. It's not so simple as to ignore it. Every time you interact with the UI it's its own humiliation. It's a constant reminder of impotence. And questioning why do I subject myself to the whims of these people who're pulling my tail like I'm some monkey.

What the hell is wrong with Mozilla? Is is it still Mozilla? Why can't add-on people effectively address these problems if Mozilla won't? Why dictate how everything is, and then make everything unusable? Why?

How can we make our voices heard? Why can't Mozilla just kill FF if its goal seems to be to do that by making it unusable? Why not just close shop? Because some one will carry it on because it's open source? It really seems like someone wants FF to be unpopular. How else can we understand that it doesn't just give options? No even options in its crazy about:config system? Why am I in this masochistic relationship with FF? What's in it for FF?

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

There is one menu short in a screen, when I use Firefox to my bank. The file "2021-02-14.png" is missing a menu with "Forbrugsoverblik Forbrugsagenter Etiketter" on black background. The file "2021-02-14(1).png" is the same <prt sc> but in Edge browser. The file "2021-02-14(2).png" is the same but in Crome.

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

The tab bar should distinguish the active tab (in part) by removing its bottom border. When I restart Firefox, the tab bar displays correctly but before long that bottom border of the active tab reappears. Changing to a different theme doesn't help. All I can think of is that perhaps I have too many add-ons or bookmarks installed. (I currently have just under 50 add-ons.) What can I do to keep that bottom border off the active tab?

Some tabs crash at random. Cannot reproduce at will. Started happening ever since I've upgraded to a Ryzen 3600 CPU. RAM with the XMP profile passes the entire 2 hour-long 4 -pass Memtest86 without errors.

The crashes happen on all versions of stable Firefox and on Firefox Developer's Edition. They also occur if there are <10 tabs open as well as 100 tabs open. I have 5-6 very common extensions on FF stable (Bitwarden, Gesturefy, uBlock Origin, Facebook Container, Open Tabs Next to Current, Wikiwand, and the Stream Detector), but not a single extension installed on FF DE and still it crashes too.

Some of many crash logs: bp-87b13e5c-1bc5-4f68-864b-95d6b0210227 bp-1751032b-df93-404e-822f-c13020210227 bp-e7840772-f24e-439b-b56b-ca8c50210227 bp-629bbf6d-b007-4b4a-8b76-b2d5e0210227 bp-dd9c0c07-61bf-44a4-b5a6-9f4170210227 bp-07cf5b11-39c5-4802-a448-7e6920210227 bp-97139c27-1633-4bab-a876-1bc030210227

These are all just from today, and these are not even all of today's crashes.

System details: AMD Ryzen 3600 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM (XMP profile 2) MBO MSI B450 Tomahawk (latest Beta Bios v7C02v1H3 - happened also with stable BIOS, so I put the latest BIOS on if there are possible BIOS<-->RAM problems but still crashes remain) Nvidia GTX 1070Ti (driver v461.72) Windows 10 Pro 20H2 v19042.804

Any idea what's causing this?

Mozilla Firefox keeps rolling out changes to functionality and the user interface without notification, as well as altering my user preferences. A set of about:config preferences that start with "app.normandy" seem to have something to do with installing these on my Windows 10 system. I did NOT enroll in any FF studies. So, it is odd that there seems to be outside manipulation . I am not a programmer. I would appreciate a lay person explanation.

It appears that Firefox 87.0b3 version has removed the Library - Pocket List menu item. Yet, through the about:config options, has retained the ability to activate the 'Save to Pocket' address bar icon.

This makes no sense as there is now no option to have a 'Pocket List' item selection. At least I couldn't find an option for this. That is without adding another extension.

Having the 'Save' option without the 'List' option is counter intuitive.

The Library-->Pocket List Menu item should be restored.

Thanks.
