I am busy doing my schoolwork and firefox keeps on crashing, namely by over-using the CPU on my laptop too much. I have tried numerous routes, such as reducing the number of browser extensions, using one of the certified performance-boosting add-ons to reduce CPU usage, I even tried limiting my tabs to a maximum of 10, all of them have failed to improve performance. This is not even mentioning the browser-induced bluescreen I just got a few minutes before writing this.

All of a sudden - Both of these websites below give me 403 errors. I cleared the CACHE, rebooted, checked the other settings - Nothing has been changed and I have the most recent FF version installed - 84.0.2 Also both of these can be accessed from any other browser - so it must be a FF issue.

I have used both sites for a long time with no access issues.

Hard to explain why I am asking here, but here goes:

I am a reseller and use different sources. One of our vendor's websites is showing me retail pricing after I login. Our special prices used to (and are supposed) be visible. If you don't log in, no prices are visible. My sales rep asked IT, who said to clear cache and cookies. And again today, he said it is on my end, not theirs.

Of course, that doesn't solve the problem. Do not even know where to begin.

I want to import my mobile Safari bookmarks into Firefox on my desktop. I have read many articles on here but none of them have helped. I had hopes for this one(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285031) but it was unclear whether the user was on a Mac or PC.

I have already installed iCloud for Windows and the iCloud Bookmarks add-on in Firefox. I have supposedly performed the sync operation already, but nothing seems to have transferred. I have neither the Safari bookmarks in Firefox, nor the Firefox bookmarks in Safari(which I do not want or care about as Safari will be deleted when I am done with all this) I don't see any options to adjust any kind of settings in either program.

I very much would like to get this iCloud thing to work. If that continues to be unsuccessful, is it possible to create an HTML file from the mobile Safari bookmarks and import THAT into Firefox?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have noticed that after using Firefox for a while when I close it the trace is left of the page I been watching or working in. Mainly it is visible through transparent windows (visibility stays after the Firefox window has been closed) and when the desktop background is changed to a dark blueish colour I can clearly see the faded Firefox page. Restarting PC changes nothing, the faded trace stays. It clears out after not using Firefox for a quite while. I really enjoy and prefer using Firefox to other browsers but this problem has been annoying me for a some time already. Any suggestions for fixes ?

On my old computer - Linux Mint 19 with current Firefox installed, I had enabled an account and set a master password. Now I'm upgrading to a new computer. Firefox does not recognize the old master password. I found the setting to enable a new account password, but through the multiple jumps needed to get this set up, it frequently locks me out for 15 minutes. You encouraged saving passwords in Firefox. Switching the method for storing the passwords between versions and then having frequent 15 minute lockouts will make me abandon this platform. I don't have time for this. I do have my passwords backed up, but there is no where in Firefox that I can see in the passwords section to import from Firefox. I'm very disappointed.

I sometimes copy and paste things from websites onto word documents. I like to keep the same style font/spacing/etc. when I do. When I use Chrome or Explorer or Edge the font and spacing stays the way it looks on the webpage, when I use Firefox it changes to the default (Times New Roman, double spaced, etc.). If I use "Merge Fonts" it only pastes to what the last thing I typed looked like (not what I want), and if I start a new document and paste something there, it's back to the default settings. Is there anyway to get this working the way I want it, or am I going to have to go back to a different browser for this particular issue?

We want to customize the look & feel from firefox. We are using the userChrome.css file.

In the past we used the following entry to hide the menu bar in Firefox:

  1. toolbar-menubar

{display: none !important;}

Now on Firefox 78.6 (ESR Release) this works different. The menu bar is hidden but the close Icon (and the minimize/fullscreen Icons) are hidden too.

Is there a way to hide/disable the menu bar but keep these icons/buttons?

I have set the Downloads preference to "Always ask you where to save files".

When I download a file (I usually download PDF files), Firefox presents the file picker dialog with some directory pre-selected.

I would expect Firefox to pre-select the directory where I saved my most recent file.

However, Firefox often switches between several of my recent directory, seemingly absolutely arbitrarily. It would present the most recent directory e.g. 5 times in a row then suddenly switch to some other directory on its own.

This is EXTREMELY annoying and bad, as it is easy to overlook the changed directory and save the file in an unintended directory. It happened several times to me.

This behavior so destructive and annoying that I would consider it a bug that should get fixed (other browsers do not do this!). However if it is for some strange reason considered to be a feature, how can it turned off and how can Firefox be made to ALWAYS present the most recent download directory?

Is it possible to save anything Firefox already downloaded? Currently all the “save” buttons seem to mean “download”; even the “view source” button makes additional request which may fail or even redirect (so e.g. clicking that on http://a.b/c may led one to view-source:http://d.e/f if the former page became a redirect in the meantime)
