For me, updating the browser is acceptable only after restarting the computer. And generally I'm happy with the current version.

It is very disturbing and annoying, the browser can be accidentally updated when it is unnecessary.

The Saved Password Editor (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/saved-password-editor/) was an excellent extension and highly useful extension, rendered inoperative by Quantum. While some people may think that this extension is no longer needed because of the built-in editor (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1186297) this is incorrect for a number of reasons:

  • Some website don't capture the login information and there is no way to manually enter the information: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234322. Editing some json file is a ridiculous suggestion.
  • It annoying to navigate to the built-in editor and recently FF moved the "saved logins..." button down about:preferences#privacy so you now have to scroll in addition to clicking. Note: bookmarking chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul is handy, but doesn't solve the other problems.
  • The built-in editor does not allow editing the website URL or duplicating a login.
  • All of this make it impossible to use the built-in password editor to save things like PINs or answers to secret questions, all of which was very easy with the Saved Password Editor extension.

So will Firefox ever enable the Saved Password Editor to work again? The add-on page says that the extension needs a WebExtensions API. Will Firefox ever have one of those again? If the functionality was added into the build-in password manager, that would be good, too. Thank you.

Dear Firefox,

Since the most recent update I am experiencing problems in being able to save pictures. I find an image in Google Image Search, click on it and go to save .... however it does not save. The process even prompts me to select the folder I want it saved in, the name I want to give the file and so on. I do all of these things - but there is no picture there when I go to the folder. I have tried saving to different folders but no luck. This does not happen in all cases, only on some pictures.

I find the only way i can save the picture is to click on View Image and then prompt it to save. However as my work involves finding lots of images online, this is adding several steps to the process. It is also annoying when I have to save 50+ pictures and then go back and find that maybe half-a-dozen or so are not there

When trying to load my personal Nextcloud instance, I receive the error in the title. I have tested the site every way I can think of, but the site's security is fine. The site loads fine in Chrome and on the Android version of Firefox. When using chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul , I received the error "This site attempts to identify itself with invalid information." Only problem is, after looking through the cert, I can't find anything that's invalid. I have attached everything I can think of that's relevant.

I have tried a new profile (same error), Safe Mode (same error), disabling security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling in about:config, disabling my antimalware (Windows Defender), and refreshing Firefox. I don't know what else I can do to try and fix this.

I have a page using javascript to filter div's depending on a selection criteria. On Safari and Chrome, the filtering works just fine. Bit onFirefox (the latest version) instead of seeing the filtered list I see a new tab, titled About:

The attached images show the sequence, screen1 and then screen2 then screen3. I should see screen1 with a subset of the divs in the scrolling section.

The javascript is:

  function TLSshowhide(tlsclassname) {
/* first, hide all responsive div's */
var y = window.frames['theinterviewsdataframe'];
var z = y.document.getElementById('theinterviewsdata');
var x = z.getElementsByClassName('responsive');
            var i;
            for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
                    x[i].style.display = 'none';
             }
/* then, show the responsive div's with the selected classname */
           x = z.getElementsByClassName(tlsclassname);          
           for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
                    x[i].style.display = 'initial';
            }
}
/* When the user clicks on the artist button,  show all responsive div's */
function showArtist() {
/* when showing the artists, show all responsive div's */
var y = window.frames['theinterviewsdataframe'];
var z = y.document.getElementById('theinterviewsdata');
var x = z.getElementsByClassName('responsive');
            var i;
            for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
                    x[i].style.display = 'initial';
             }
}
You can see this in action for yourself by going to http://cultconv.com/CultConv20181030/theinterviews.html and clicking the By Artist button

The list of DIV's being displayed is found in http://cultconv.com/CultConv20181030/theinterviewsdata.html

All help appreciated.

Sometimes, when I press ctrl+t, I get the tab in my tab bar, but it is not functional(clicking it does nothing, and ctrl+pgup/dwn will show the previous tab for a few presses until it gets passed the broken tab), and the only way to close Firefox afterwards is through the menu, pressing the 'x' in the corner will do nothing. I would say this happens about 50% of the time. If I use the plus(+) at the top to open a new tab it always works. I have been having this problem for atleast the past 5 versions, or more. I have tried with a new profile, and no addons loaded, and it still happens. Is this just my computer?

This problem has been bothering me and friends for a long time. We keep hundreds of tabs open and this causes - depending on the viewed pages - very quickly high processor load with fans ramping up to max.

A temporary fix is to restart the browser with all tabs frequently - which also dramatically reduces RAM use. Because only the viewed tabs in each browser window are loaded initially, that quiets things down immediately - until more pages are opened in different tabs that use tremendous resources. Like Amazon, other shopping sites, probably some hidden miners (otherwise I often cannot fathom why it would use so much cpu).

I suggest an option for Firefox to halt/stop/suspend all tabs that are not currently selected for viewing. That is one tab per window. We have absolutely not the slightest need for any tab to do anything if it's not viewed.

In a pinch we sometimes suspend the whole firefox process via ProcessExplorer - but sometimes it doesn't resume and of course it also halts the foreground tabs. Restarting is not always possible due to pages with logins and other customizations that disappear on reload.
