There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

edit : fixed some typo

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

Hello

I have spent 3 days trouble shooting this and can't resolve it. Firefox won't load pages, just get a grey spinning circle forever. No other message. I close firefox and restart, it won't start as it is still running in background. Task manager will not close it. I have to reboot the PC. I have tried deleting profiles, which helps for a few minutes then it locks again. I tried re-installing firefox and again it works for a few minutes then nothing. I have completely deleted all 'appdata' and still no luck. New profile doesn't help. I checked all security settings, firewall, etc. and nothing helped. I tried safe mode and the problem still exists. I have used firefox for years and now may have to walk away. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

Hi all,

     I'm using the latest version of FF 53.0.3 (32-bit) on Windows 7, and lately, every single tab loads slow with a momentary pop-up stating "a web page is slowing down your browser".  The pages do end up loading, and I see others have this problem as well.  I am wondering if it's because Flash (again using the latest version) no longer works as Firefox has done away with all add-ons??  Getting extremely frustrated with Firefox.  I don't get these error pop-ups in Chrome!

I print several EBAY labels a day. Just upgraded to firefox 29 (not realizing really what had changed - now regretting) and the built in PDF viewer no longer prints properly. It shows the label fine on the screen, but when sending to the printer (I tried two different ones) it just prints out two blanks pages. I tried a number of different printer settings and as i mentioned two different printers. Can't get anything to print now except two blank pages. If I switch the application settings in firefox to use an external 3rd party PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe reader 11, PDF Viewer plus, etc) those work fine. However, the default built in PDF viewer clearly broke in this new version. A very disappointing launch for me as this is critical feature for my use. Yes, I have a work around, but the point (and new bug) is still valid.

1. Synced my Firefox sync account

2. Disconnected my Firefox sync account

3. Reinstalled windows

4. Installed Firefox 56 (I was using 63 but i only had 56 installer)

5. Updated it to 65.0.1.

6. Connected my Firefox sync account


Problem -

1. All bookmarks didn't sync.

I created bookmark HTML backups and it were of 6mb and my latest backup is 171mb.

There are 2980 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after again connecting to FirefoxSync. I used WinMerge.

2. HTML backups also contain fav-icons [and Firefox Sync only syncs links not fav-icons.]

When browser is used fav-icons are loaded but after sync fav-icons are loaded as pages are loaded , so there are no fav-icons and html backup size is less than the last backup.

3. Could be related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251781

4. There could be something wrong with Firefox's Exporting. Imported the same 173mb HTML to chrome and Firefox then exported HTML backups. Firefox Export was of 61.1Mb Chrome Export was of 12.9Mb

I recently noticed a new pocket button in nightly, and I was wondering what this is. From bugzilla, it seems there is a project to integrate pocket with firefox, but I have a few questions about it:

  • why is this being done/why is it replacing the (now unavailable) firefox reading list?
  • Is mozilla being compensated by pocket or anyone else for this?
  • Who stores the data: mozilla, pocket, or someone else?
  • is there an option to disable this?

Thanks!

Page turning machine.

Who is in charge of developing Rube Goldberg devices? Firefox should apply for the Guinness book of world records due to the unneeded complexity of the browser. They would probably lose out to Microsoft though.

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

Hi,

in pre Quantum versions, you could make your Firefox safe against malware with a simple trick. It was little known but very effective because it uses Windows tools to limit Firefox abilities to write or modify files. We use the Windows program icacls to limit write access to a selected set of subfolders. Here is how it worked:

icacls "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" /setintegritylevel low
icacls "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Temp" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\updates" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\LocalLow\Mozilla" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "[...]\Downloads" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "[...]\Firefox Profile" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low

Then I updated to Quantum and now this seems to not work anymore. After I secured Firefox in this way and started Firefox, Firefox then doesn't show any websites (just grey area), no popups etc. The whole Firefox UI seems to be broken.

Does anyone know how to fix this? For example, are there additional folders I need to give access to? Or is this not possible in post Quantum Firefox because of this new process architecture etc.?
