Hello,

When I close Firefox after the last update (current installed version: 112.0 x64 Windows 10), Firefox creates almost 200 processes (in the latest case 177), each using from 17 MB to 65 MB RAM (except one that is using over 200 MB - I guess the main one) using 100% CPU for about half a minute, and in that my PC is unusable - everything hangs. It takes a bit more time to close all of them.

Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you.

Hello Firefox,

Thanks for reading my troubleshooting question. When using the Firefox browser (my favorite by far) I cannot upload low res (500x500 pixel) Jpeg photos onto my Squarespace website. I called Squarespace and they ran tests including uploading my photos successfully. Squarespace recommended I clear Firefox cache and history. Still no good. I then ran a Firefox refresh. No good. Finally I temporarily booted the God forsaken Microsft Edge browser and My Squarespace website worked just fine. Uploaded Jpeg files successfully.

I really dont want to be stuck with Microsoft Edge. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

After running `snap refresh firefox`, many sites I use no longer render any text.

Via some fiddling via the developer console, it appears to be that any text with `font-family: Helvetica`. Removing that CSS restores the text, adding it removes the text.

There's a fix for CVE-2023-29537 in this release that affects font initialization - possibly related?

I run a simple website. gcessa.org. Until recently I was able to import a .doc or .docx document converted to a text document into the site and it loaded like one would expect. Lately the characters ', ", and - have been resolving as a �. There might be others I'm not aware of. Which means the characters are not found in the codex. What do I need to do to resolve this issue. I believe it started after one of the last two updates. I don't see this happening in edge or chrome.

Thanx

Is there a way to permanently disable red underlining from Firefox spell check? This has only started occurring since an update to Firefox 110 (now on 112), but there seems to be no way to make it go away. I've unchecked the spelling box in preferences, and killed off things in about:config:

extensions.spellcheck.inline.max-misspellings 0 layout.spellcheckDefault 0 services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault false services.sync.prefs.sync.spellchecker.dictionary false

I'm using Mac Monterey, and have the global spell check turned off for that. This seems to be a problem specific to Firefox, as it doesn't happen in Chrome (spellcheck off) or Safari. I'd like to remove this entirely, since it's distracting to have it second guessing me whenever I'm typing. The main reason I use Firefox is that it gives me the ability to control many things, particularly in combination with UBlock, but I'm unable to make any progress in removing this persistent work disruption.

I use multiple desktops on Windows 10; usually between two and four at a time. Each of those desktops has multiple Firefox windows open.

Whenever I restart my computer (which is not often but it happens) Firefox restores all the previously opened windows onto a single desktop, leaving me to sort out the mess. Firefox also re-opens windows/tabs recently stashed using the Tab Stash extension.

Is there anything I can do to make sure Firefox remembers which windows belongs on which desktop, and to keep stashed windows closed?

Mozilla is great at pushing out every possible new update, no matter how trivial. Every time it does, I have to reset everything.

I've been doing this since Firefox 6. I've learned to store all my about:config tweaks in a file so I can quickly copy, paste and reset them on each update. I've included the various program settings I want, too, so I don't have to think and try to remember what each one means and what I want. I use userChrome.css to set some of my display settings, but I'm not very familiar with it.

Is there some script, program, add-on, or other method to convert this time intensive restoration of my settings every month or so for all the new updates. I'd love to find some form of a "registry.reg" type file that would work on Firefox and/or Thunderbird.

If there's something out there, I'm positive a LOT of others would want it, too.

Weirdly, if I have a link to a specific instagram post, the browser will load it. But profile page? Forget about it. Anyone else having this issue, and know perhaps why Firefox is loading Instagram this way on a desktop?

My Firefox recently updated itself to version 112.0 - since then, when I close all its windows and then run FF again, on all websites opened in tabs (e.g. Facebook, Google Search etc.) I am logged off. In previous FF versions, my logged-in status was preserved between individual FF runs. Firefox not only logs me out of all sites, but also logs me out of the LastPass extension, which also stayed logged in in previous Firefox versions. Anyone knows what is going on?

Hi,

I am using Firefox for Linux, and whenever my yubikey is plugged in, firefox will start bothering me for a pkcs#11 password. It always happens on start-up but it gets relentlessly annoying if I happen to be on a site which potentially utilizes certificate auth, which I do not use this yubikey for.

I do however use it for 2fa, which does work perfectly fine.

How do I permanently stop whatever Firefox process keeps bothering me about this PKCS#11 password for functionality that I never use?

So I know this has been talked about, but none of the "Solutions" work. I'm not sure why or whats causing it, but my YouTube never loads fast, or hardly at all. Usually the video only loads/buffers till about 1 min into any given video. Mind you this is only on 720p or 1080p HD. I never go any higher and my internet speed is ~400Mbps down and ~22Mbps up. I've already tried the following:

1. Disable Hardware Acceleration 2. Clear Cache and Cookies 3. Refresh Firefox 4. Check HTML 5 Video Player 5. Made sure Firefox was updated

I do use some extensions like: - Dark Reader - Privacy Badger - uBlock Origin - Bitwarden (Shouldn't affect) - Honey (Isn't turned on for YouTube) - Enhancer for YouTube (New, so it does not affect load)

Any Suggestions?

Today I've had various problems on my Windows 10 PC such as Firefox running slowly and various buttons not working. However most of these issues seemed to sort themselves out after restarting Firefox.

However, I cannot get my projects to load in LaTeX editor, overleaf.com. Initially, the editor would load but not the PDFs. But after deleting cookies and site data the editor won't load either and I get "Could not connect to websocket server :(". I can reach other parts of overleaf.com such as their help files, but not my actual work. The problem is not with overleaf as it works fine on Firefox mobile (obviously impractical for LateX editing) and in Chrome on the same Windows machine.

I've tried everything I can think of: deleting cookies, site data, and cache; deleting History, tho I backed it up and restored it when it didn't work; going into troubleshooting mode; restarting Firefox.

Please don't force me to use Chrome.

My search engine page when I click on FF changed to Bing this morning. I installed Avast Virus Remover yesterday, and nothing else. All methods given on all the answer pages did not work (do not find the link) or I do not know how to get to the command (e.g. Tools - xxxx - xxx - which tools?) I can't open FF so I can't use any of its options, unless there is a way to open FF without this Bing thing.

Win 10. I ran all the AV's and malware programs and they found nothing because I really do not surf a lot. I can't say which version of FF because I can't open FF
