After a recent automatic update my old problem with Firefox Quantum came back. Every time I open Firefox browser I get multiple 4-6 firefox.exe running in the background processes. When I go into details and try to end process tree it crashes my browser. When I open Firefox it starts all over again. I have gone into about:preferences and

   De-select ‘Use recommended performance settings’
   Set Content process limit value to ‘1’ from its default value

I have also gone into about:config and switched browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false. Still have the same problem.

Firefox won't let me drag-and-drop files from automatically-opened .zip archives into Windows Explorer

I am using Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit (fully updated) and Firefox 68.0 64-bit.

The problem is that when I download any .zip archive and tell Firefox to "Open with... 7-Zip File Manager" (or with Windows Explorer), after the archive has finished downloading and opened in a 7-Zip window (or an Explorer window), I cannot drag-and-drop the file contained in the archive onto a Windows Explorer window or the desktop. No matter where I try to drag the file to, the Windows mouse cursor is always a "cancel" icon and won't let me drop it anywhere.

If I then close the archive window and reopen it from the download folder (C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Temp), now I can drag-and-drop correctly.

I know that this is a problem with Firefox, because if I try the same operation with the same .zip archive using the current version of Tor Browser (8.5.4 32-bit (based on Mozilla Firefox 60.8.0esr)) or with Internet Explorer (11.0.9600.19399) I do not have this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

I always have two tabs set to open on startup. Just recently, the tabs switched to two separate windows, each with the two tabs. When I close one, both close. I don't know why this happened , though undoubtedly I did something and forgot. I am not especially technical. I cannot get FF to go back to the single instantiation with the two tabs. Any help would be gratefully received.

I just noticed. this happens whenever I open a tab, it becomes a new window as well as being added as a tab.

(I've previously posted this issue on a couple of other forums, with no help thus far. If you've seen either of those posts, please forgive the duplication; I'm a bit desperate.)

After updating Firefox yesterday and restarting my Win7 I was unable to open my Firefox. The error message was "Can't open this item. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted." I was given the choice to remove it or not. When I chose not, the event and error message reiterated; so I chose to remove. Thereafter I've been unable to bring up or download Firefox, with the following error message with each try:

Hello,

I am having a problem with Gmail and its interface.

I am not able to click on any buttons and icons in Gmail because I dont see them or they are unclickable.

I am using Firefox, the latest version. I was trying to log in in Chrome and Explorer and I didnt have any problem wiht Gmail. I have tried to reinstall Firefox, twice and also deleted cache and cookies. It didnt work.

I have tried also look to other similiar topics: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253059 and none of that helped.

where do i start? maybe work backwards--unresponsive, then crashing in safe mode as well.

did the safe mode thing because i was getting "not responding"s, sometimes even at startup, other times just randomly--and often crashes--sometimes after unresponsive, sometimes just out of the blue.

firefox has also been very slow for me pretty much since ver. 60+.

can't figure this out.

WTF could be the problem?

would crash report info help? there were many unubmitteds--submitted them all except for the two would not submit--say "failed" and reloading page gives same result. scanning through them randomly, most say EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT, but i also saw EXCEPTION_STACK_OVERFLOW, EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ and EXCEPTION_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION. could be more, but i don't have the time to look through all 53 submitted reports from 4 june until now--before that, there were only 11 between 28 may this year and 7 december of 2017.

thanks for any info/advice!

I work and suddenly must stop because firefox need to update. It is very annoying. Is it really so hard give users control on it? Give me notice and I`ll update when finish my current part of work. And why I cant disable auto-updates in options? It is really bad way. I must think about change browser first time in many years.

I am having a problem trying to see and save a GIF image. As you know, if you click on a GIF on Twitter, you will just get a black screen. The problem is easy to solve by using a 3rd party site like EZGIF. But what if the image was uploaded to DM?

I have a GIF file that was given to me through Direct Message, and just like before, I get a black screen. However, because the post was sent to me privately, I have no idea how to save it. Unlike public posts, Direct Messages do not have a singular link that EZGIF can detect (eg. public posts have the "status" word in the URL, DMs do not), The only way I can now see GIFs of any kind on Twitter is to see them in my mobile device, an Apple iPod Touch or iPod Mini, but as far as I know, none of them allow me to save the GIF, only view it.

How can I see a GIF file that is on my DM, and save it while overcoming the dreaded Twitter glitch?

I get a screen that says "Connect. Organize. Get Things done" It wants me to either sign in to Outlook or create an account. I don't want to do either, but I can't get past that screen and clicking on either button does nothing. Safari works fine but all my bookmarks, etc. are on Firefox. This screen has appeared randomly for several days but I could always work around it. No more. Microsoft says the problem is with Firefox, and since I Safari works, I'm afraid they're right. I really need to be able to use the information on Firefox!
