So like my title says, I recently started noticed my computer is very slow, making very loud fan noises every 5 - 15 seconds and freezing when the fan becomes loud. I notice in task manager I am running 9-10 firefox processes which take up close to 100% memory, even though I am running 1 tab. I don't know if this a virus, or bug, but it is screwing my computer over. I have 8 GB Ram, and it shows 100% in memory sometimes from firefox, I think this is some virus, but I don't know how to get rid of it.

Hello, I use Firefox on my Mac, and I'm a seller on Etsy. For several days now, I have not been able to get to any page on the Etsy site (my shop, Etsy home page, Etsy help, other shops...). I can get there on my iPhone (Safari) and by using Chrome, which I would rather not use.

I've tried shutting down my Mac, and I've tried quitting and re-starting Firefox.

This is not the first time I've had this issue, but this is the longest it has lasted. I checked with a friend who is also an Etsy seller, and she's experiencing the same problems. It occurs to me that the intersection between Etsy sellers and Firefox users might well be a large group.

The details: MacBook Pro 2015, MacOS Catalina 10.15.7; Firefox 83.0. Today is 2 Dec 2020.

If this is about clearing the cache, I'd appreciate some info about how to do it, as well as what might else could be impacted.

Thanks for any help on this!

While using Firefox, I was watching a video when all of a sudden the entire thing crash and when I tried to reboot it, the installation directory, the cookies and everything else involving Firefox was completely gone. No sign of it anywhere, has this ever happened to anyone else here?

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

After enabling gfx.webrender.all (value true in about:config), there is no more tearing in web sites like google street view. But all my extensions, while working, offer an empty dialog pop-uo when I left click on their icon in Firefox main bar. UBlock origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger or Joplin all act with the same behavior. See screenshot. If I disable gfx.webrender.all all my extensions dialogs are back.

I had gfx.webrender.all set to true before version 83.0 of Firefox and my extensions were working fine.

I followed the instructions on the support pages to transfer my profiles from an old W7 laptop to a new W10 one. After the copying of the profiles to the correct locations neither Firefox nor Thunderbird would start complaining that they could not find the profiles.

What I did (same thing for Thunderbird) 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on the old W7 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. copied the Profiles folder to a usb drive.

On new W 10 laptop 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on new W10 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. renamed the existing Profiles folder to Profiles OLD 5. copied the Profiles folder from the usb to the same correct location on the new laptop

When I tried opening Firefox on the new laptop it would not open complaining that it could not find the profile. Firefox had opened correctly previously.

Then when I renamed the moved Profiles folder to Profiles NEW and renamed Profiles OLD to Profiles, Firefox opened normally on the new laptop.

Identical procedure and result with the Thunderbird profile transfer.

What should I do?

Thanks.

Hi there,

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox 83.0.

I have two PDF fillable forms that have calculations that run. Basically you enter your mileage you drove and it adds up the mileage for each line you enter.

I have noticed that the form is fillable but none of the calculations run.

It works fine in chrome and internet explorer.

Hello,

I use windows FF and I dont use any sync etc.

When i bookmark any site (because I have many book marks already) I am trying to organize them better with folders and such.

The problem is when i bookmark a website today, or when I try to move a previous book mark FROM a current location like OTHER BOOKMARKS, or RECENTLY BOOKMARKS, or ADDITIONAL BOOKMARKS.....to a NEW location or folder, it moves the book mark as i want and that is great, however it leaves behind the original bookmark and if i delete the original bookmark it will ALSO delete the clone bookmark i just moved to a new location.

Obviously once i move a bookmark from X to Y, I want to only have 1 instance of the bookmark not 2 in 2 different areas......

When i move a bookmark, I am dragging to a new area,folder etc....or using the bookmark editor to drag it from x to y....

Please help......I am not sure why firefox does this or what maybe i am doing wrong or how to fix. Thanks

What can Y do to replace all my passwords into only one : - having something from the alphabet and some current number (eg ABC321) - which is only valid for a chosen period as chosen by a user (eg until March 2021) - that informs me by a message like "Be attentfull : your password is soon retired. Renew it soon" - that can be used on an old Pc with Microsoft Vista.... - ...and on a relative new laptop with Windows10 - also on a HuaWay if possible - when I am dying, the password should further exists until the password time is gone.

In this case I never have to make and hide a list where I can forget the hidden place or finding old (wrong) passwords or never forget what the other passwords were.
