So what i've noticed lately is that when i play a video on youtube while on fullscreen, sometimes when i exit the fullscreen the screen goes black for a few seconds. In the meanting i can hear the audio being played in the background. After 1-2 seconds audio becomes choppy and then it completely stops and then my computer restarts. I haven't tested that with any other browser since i've been only using firefox for years. It doesn't happen all the time but i can happen randomly. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration but it didn't do anything. All the drivers are up to date. Anyone encountering the same problem? Any possible solutions would be more than welcomed.

NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

Have disabled pop up blockers and tried disabling all privacy things, it just keeps closing that new tab when clicking anything from the website.

Atm my workaround is to just copy link address, manually open new tab, and copy it there.

This bug has been there for years.

OneTab has not be repopulating with all of my saved websites lately (last 5-6 days). It has eventually come back but today, its not happening. I have a tab that is my OneTab tab that has my saved websites in it. That tab exists still but it is empty. None of my saved websites are there. Also, the OneTab icon has disappeared. There is a space where it used to be and if I click on that space it goes to the description of OneTab so it is still (sort of) there, but... How do I get OneTab to work again. I don't want to lose the list of websites I saved. Thanks.

I can't print images, such as labels from FedEx.com. The labels show on the monitor but when you try to print via Firefox, it only has a border, but it's blank where the image should be. It works fine in IE, Edge, Chrome or if I copy the image and paste it to word or a different browser or file, just not via Firefox. Not sure how to fix it, it used to work fine but the recent update broke the printing functionality as well as the drop down menus. Even the one here in Firefox, selecting the response for "Which topic best describes you question?" is completely unresponsive and does not work. I have to use the down arrow to select the correct response. PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES.

Firefox Autofill Frustration, Am I doing it wrong?

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Hi

Question I am redoing my computer and have considered restarting firefox at the same time being I have been on the same profile for ages and figured might be worth just restarting with a new profile.

Now I know I can import bookmarks and such into the new profile after backing them up of course.

Question I have regards passwords and log ins.

I remember some time back I had lost some files including these and was able to restore them from an old back up of the profile. I think it was 2 files.

Are these files profile specific or can they be backed up on this profile and then copied into a new profile and work OK??

Or I just saw EXPORT LOGINS if I use this will it back up all my logins and then allot me to import them into the new profile like the bookmarks back up?

Thanks

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?
