HI,

it's a problem that's been around for years, yet i never got an appropriate answer, so i'm asking here:

The longer i keep Firefox running, the slower my whole system gets and the slower firefox itself gets - up to a point (generally like about 10 hours or so) where everything becomes so slow, i have to manually shut down Firefox via the Task Manager. All that seems to be independent from the fact whether i actually do something in Firefox or not.

So i don't know what Firefox actually does while i'm away that kills my whole system, but i'd really like to know and i appreciate any help!!!

THX in advance

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout.

When OneTouch is activated, the text 'Securely logging you in...' appears overlayed with the spinning wheel in the popup window. This continues indefinitely.

When this is not activated the window doesn't progress further after entering the email as prompted by the window and pressing Next.

It's possible to login to PayPal in a separate tab however that doesn't influence the popup behaviour.


Looking at the console in the popup there are a few 'Unable to find window by ref window.js:148:14' errors.

In the 'host' window where the popup was called from the console displays the 'Failed to execute ‘postMessage’ on ‘DOMWindow’: The target origin provided (‘https://www.paypal.com’) does not match the recipient window’s origin (‘https://www.paypal.com’).' error.


I believe this could be a recent issue because I was able to make several payments last month with all settings the same. I have a separate user.js file that I keep my settings in (I can send it over if required). These settings have not been changed since the file has been created.


The following actions have been tried and didn't improve the situation:

- refreshing the current profile

- disabling all addins

- adding paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

- cleaning History and cookies


I then launched Firefox with a separate 'clean' profile and was able to make the payment successfully. Sure enough, importing my user.js file broke PayPal. I went through the settings commenting them out by groups.

The following setting was causing the issue:

user_pref("privacy.firstparty.isolate", true);

Setting it to 'false' made the PayPal popup window work correctly again.

Thought that this would be helpful for anyone experiencing similar issues. Cheers.

Sometimes, when I open the browser, ALL content is not drawn to the window size, as shown in the screenshot. In this case, mouse events are tracked as if everything was drawn correctly, i.e., to the entire size. Only resizing the window helps. How to fix this problem? This happens not only in KDE, but also in GNOME. Clearing the profile didn't help. Running without extensions too. Such a problem still sometimes occurs. OS: ArchLinux https://imgur.com/a/X7Ue9Al

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.

When I try to attach a file to an email send in Gmail, nothing happens. The upload bar shows no progress and the email sits in the draft folder. The size of the file has no bearing on the problem. I've tried running in Safe Mode and even did a clean reinstall but it didn't help. The problem does not occur with the same accounts in Chrome or Opera; only in Firefox. I've tried everything recommended here, but nothing helped.

I tried to post this question in the correct forum, but there is no option to choose Firefox Send as a product when asking a question. The Firefox Send forum at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/firefox-send appears to be empty and I didn't see a way to post there directly.

An email account at my school district was recently compromised and had sent out 122 malicious phishing links via Firefox Send before we stopped it and took control of the account back. I have the list of malicious Firefox Send links and I'd like to share them with the proper people at Mozilla so something can be done.

The files are all password-protected archives (I know the passwords) that contain malicious VBS files which have their code heavily obfuscated. I haven't yet tried to figure out what the VB scripts do - I was hoping a cyber security professional would be willing to take a look.

Someone please contact me so I can at least try to get the files taken down.

If I were to make a feature request for Firefox Send, it would be to add a button to report a file as malicious.

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

Like many users who have placed this same complaint on this forum and others, Firefox, when left active with even only a few tabs, uses all available RAM until my 16 GB machine is populated up to 98% and barely works (Dell Optiplex 5060, i7-8700, 16 GB RAM, Windows 10 64-bit; Firefox 72.0.2 (64-bit)).

When I shut Firefox down, I release 8 GB of RAM. I have used the "about:memory|Minimize Memory Usage" button with some success.

How can I make that memory setting permanent or the default, so I don't have to lose my research momentum by having to wait to get to a point where I can open the "about" settings window and manually click that button? It's very frustrating.

I've tested in Safe Mode, disabled any add-ons (I only have what Firefox supplied), and the condition still persists.

Making the "Minimize Memory Usage" setting, or an equivalent if there is one, permanent would help.

Thanks.

I was trying to use the inspector in developer tools on the Firefox Developer Edition. It does not really work. It can find the first object you move to and after that as you move the cursor around the website you are trying to locate elements on, it just stops working. I was using version 63, so I updated to the latest version 78.0b9 and the same problem exists. This is consistent across multiple websites. I find this odd because the regular Firefox Developer Tools do not have this problem. I think it is a bug. Can someone please confirm this. I do not think it is possible I am doing something wrong. Somehow I thought the Developer Edition might have even better, more powerful tools, but I am finding it does not even really work. Can anyone help fix it? I would not have the time right now to come up to speed to help the team fix it, myself.

My environment is Mac OS High Sierra.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253828 does not seem to work because the caret (») is not visible in Firefox 72.0.2 (64-bit) that is on my machine. This is most annoying. Firefox and T'Bird are the most difficult software to migrate to new computers.

I need the export as a CVS. The other approaches either don't allow copy and paste or they are JSON and I have no clue how rto use that.

The other angle: logins.json (passwords) and key4.db (58+) for Passwords saved in the Password Manager I don't see a way to get that into a spreadsheet.

It is particularly annoying because there is an import function but no export function. I have over 300 web site user names and passwords. Hours and hours of work to just copy one at a time.
