I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

A few days ago Microsoft Print to PDF stopped working properly in Firefox 87.0 (64 bit) running in Windows 10. Microsoft Print to PDF functions properly in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Excel/Word/Outlook, etc.

As attached, in Firefox after pressing CTL-P (or select File>Print) the print preview window is displayed. When I click Print a PDF file is created. When I open that file I receive the attached error message advising that the file cannot be opened, etc.

I have executed many of the recommended solutions; none of resolved the issue. I refreshed Firefox; that did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folder in APPDATA rebooted and reinstalled Firefox; that did not resolve the issue.

No recent software installations or upgrades, etc.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations, Bill

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Hi So my problem started a few days ago i don't remember exactly when. The graphs on the binance exchange site have stopped updating for me on Firefox. I mean when i load the page with the graph in it the graph is static and i have to keep refreshing the entire page to see changes in the graph. I should mention that the graphs on a different site that i use work fine and display the prices in real time.

I also had microsoft edge and the same problem happens there too but today i installed chrome and the problem in NOT present there. So the site and graphs update and work properly in chrome but not in Firefox or edge. I prefer to use Firefox for everything!

-I tried Firefox safe mode and the problem is still there. -I also made a new Firefox profile and the problem is still there. -Finally i even refreshed Firefox but even that didnt fix the problem. I should mention that i have Firefox sync enabled so after i refreshed Firefox it automatically installed back all my addons (and other settings?) so even though it is refreshed it looks and behaves exactly like before i don't know if that "cancels" the effects of the refresh.

I am running win10 and my antivirus is kaspersky. I had Kaspesky on "pause protection" while i was troubleshooting but that didnt help either. I hope i managed to explain everything because i find it hard to express my self in English. If you need me to clarify anything let me know. I hope someone can help me with this because I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance Kiri

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows. I bumped into this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1155401 Saying: this will open another instance of Firefox. But nothing is bulletproof! So ask, if this will isolate me from addons, which I would open in first instance of Firefox.

Thanks for help.

I use firefox bookmarks to store my biomedical research data which over the last 12 years has grown to a large size with places.sqlite around 60 Mb and bookmarks.html about 75 Mb.

Sometime ago the bookmarks.html file suddenly almost doubled in size to some 130 Mb (I automatically back up/export my bookmarks as a bookmarks.html file) and places.sqlite to some 70 Mb. Unfortunately I only discovered the issue sometime after it happened.

According to Places Maintenance, which I run relatively frequently, the bookmarks data base comprises:

Table moz_places has 77666 records Table moz_bookmarks has 230886 records

The bloated bookmarks.html file is needlessly taking up a lot of backup space . I can only assume that somehow one of the very large files was inadvertently copied into some other folder. Given the vast number of folders/subfolders it is a virtually impossible task to open each one to find where such a large file has been put to cause such bloat. Unfortunately when I open the bookmarks.html file there is no folder structure visible so it is not possible to sort folders by size which would greatly help to find the offending folder.

Although I am quite useful at finding my way around browser technology I have no sqlite database skill. I have looked at the places.sqlite using DB Bowser for Sqlite and SqliteManager extension in the hope that I could figure out whether it is possible to identify folders and hopefully sort them by size to find where the misplaced large folder is located. But no luck it is all greek to me.

I would be most grateful if anyone can offer suggestions/guidance on any possible way to identify folders and to sort them by size from places.sqlite or any other way (I have considered exporting the bookmarks from places.sqlite to xlsl into Excel but it does not seem to offer any way to search for/sort folders by size.

I am on Win10 Pro.

Hi

I’ve been trying to access some sites for a couple of weeks or more (from the last update) and an unsafe connection is identified to me. The page has no possibility to send Mozilla any feedback. The paradox is that even the forum Mozillaitalia.org results with an unsafe connection.

What to do in order to be able to enter the sites in which I have always entered and which are now unsafe?

Here's how I discovered this issue.

PayPal has a page on which the user selects a method for having money withdrawn from one's PayPal account to one's bank. I've found that this page's "Next" button works correctly (that is, it loads the page on which the user would then indicate the amount to be transferred) on Firefox 40.0.2, but it works incorrectly (that is, it only underlines the word "Next" and does not load a new page) on Firefox 52.9.0 and Firefox 87.0.2. (My internet access in each case is dialup.)

After pursuing various leads on the possible cause, it occurred to me to inspect the page source for the "withdraw" page for each of those versions of Firefox. And I discovered that the page source displayed by Firefox 40.0.2 contained content that was absent from the page source displayed by either of the other two Firefox versions. Some of this content appeared to define a function that returns content to the server when "Next" was clicked. If true, this could certainly account for why clicking the button didn't do what it should.

I noticed that the page source uses as many as 12 nested levels of <div>-</div> elements, which seems counter to the advice I read at an HTML standards page (at whatwg.org). But I don't know whether this could be a factor in the behavior I described.

I've copied the page source for each Firefox version and pasted them into text files, but I wasn't sure it would be appropriate to post them publicly. I would be glad to provide them offline.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.
