Hello All, I recently had to start up my brand new MacBook Pro up in "Safe Mode" to verify an unrelated problem. When I restarted my computer from safe mode, my Bookmarks were either gone completely or "empty" and I was apparently in a newer version of Firefox. I then trashed my Firefox application and tried to restore an older version via Time Machine and after I copy it to my Applications folder I get the message that I am trying to open an older version of firefox and then doesn't allow me to do that. When I followed the option to their extents, only the new version with NO bookmarks shows up.

How can I get my old bookmarks back?

Thanks bc

Hi, I am able to read a business mag on one Windows 10 Home system but on another which has Win 10 Pro , FF will not allow to STAY logged in to that magazine. I am using Windows 10 Home on the system that will not allow me to stay logged in. I have checked all settings I can think of. I have browsed all the Help Q&A here. I have chcked for all updates and confirm I am using the latest FF updates on both machines.

What could be in my settings that blocks me seeing my magazine?

Thank you. Adam

20 GB RAM usage, pagefile takes up all space on C: - 300 tabs in Tree Tabs

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

I've been getting a PopUp recently (upper right corner below bookmarks toolbar) titled "Sign in with Google" saying "Use your Google Account to Sign in to...". I've followed the instructions on the internet to access my Google account and turn off this security setting (Google Account sign-in prompts) and it still appears. This does not happen on other chromium browsers I regularly use.

Why does Firefox keep displaying this PopUp, and more importantly, how can I suppress this annoyance?

Dear Sirs,

Since mid-November 2022 I encounter a login failure issue with my Wordpress website. I get a "500 Internal Server Error" when I try to login. This happens only on the Firefox browser. All systems components are up-to-date.

I tried: - cleaning cookies and cache, - logging in private windows, - logging in the Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

I spoke with my web hosting service. They had the same issue with my website. They said that recently this issue was brought up not only by me. No solution so far.

Are you aware of such an issue? What more could I do do eliminate the issue?

I would prefer to continue editing my website using the Firefox, as always.

Best regards, Mike

Protections Dashboard & Login breach information

I'm hereby re-started this thread because what this topic is about was NOT answered in my last thread and it was only closed because of a disgruntled Moderator.

FIrefox/Mozillas is contacting a 3rd party website even when ALL related settings are disabled. It also stores that data somewhere without allowing us to reset it. And on top of if even after deleting the data from said 3rd parts website Firefox/Mozilla's Privacy Dashboard still shows/uses it with us being able to reset it.

The whole discussion so far can be found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1393590 I'm here for real answers and solutions, not answers of a Moderator who thinks he knows what he's talking about but in reality isn't


Hello,

this topic is about two things.

1. How do I reset the data of the built-in Protections Dashboard without resetting all of Firefox?

2. and probably more complicated, how do I stop Firefox from checking for "Login breach information"?

I do already have and always had "Show alerts about passwords for breached web sites" in options disabled. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Mozilla says "Firefox Monitor warns you if your online accounts were involved in a known data breach. For more information, see Firefox Password Manager - Alerts for breached websites. To get the latest login breach information and more, Firefox connects to firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/"

So now I've gone as far as blocking "firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com" through HOSTS. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Why is it still checking? How is it still checking? How do I stop this?

I closed my previous session and my internet was disconnected. I accidentally open a hyperlink to a site with the Firefox browser while my internet wasn't connected and when my internet finally came back on, my entire session with 50+ tabs of multiple windows were gone, and the restore session button is gone. my browser history is still intact, so is there anyway to restore my browser to a previous day to bring up my browser windows on the previous day? Or do I have to contact customer support for Firefox?

I'm moving to a new computer and installed Firefox.

I've done a sync and everything moved over except for my container settings/configuration.

On the new Windows PC, the Firefox settings look like this: If I go to the Sync settings for Firefox: about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync It says: You are currently syncing these items. But Containers is not on the list.

If I go to the General settings for Firefox: about:preferences#general It says: Enable Container Tabs is checked but greyed out.

If I go to the Firefox Multi-Account Containers settings, Enable synchronisation is checked.

If I can't get sync to work, is there a file I can copy from the old computer and move to the new one that has all the Container conifguraiton details?

Thanks

I've noticed that for the last few days, Firefox takes several seconds to start. I happened to look in settings while I have the spinning ball and waiting for it to start, and noticed that the "Checking for updates" is running. The moment that it verifies Firefox is up to date, my initial browser page opens with my default page. It looks like version 107 was installed on Nov 15th, which is just about the time I noticed this problem occurring.

Is there any fix for this or is that something I have to live with until enough people notice it as a problem and a new update is released? Using Windows 10 if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any help from any of you.

Hello there,

I installed Firefox with high expectation, and mostly it satisfied me but this issue: it cannot connect to the server at my portfolio website. Firefox apps on iPad, iPhone, and Android can. It only happens on the desktop Firefox on PC.

For your information, Firefox is allowed through Windows Defender Firewall.

Weirdly enough, it works immediately once I create a new Firefox profile. But the issue just comes back when I reboot my PC and start Firefox with the profile which worked one minute before. I have no idea what kind of glitch it is, but I thought anyone might know about it. Any suggestion?

Best regrads, HM
