Here is my system's status: Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) Bitdefender Total security (newest version) Windows 10, 64bit, Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043

Since a short while I experienced that URLs in search lists did not change their color anymore as before to show them as already visited. This is a major impediment in using searches systematically. I cannot pin the timing for that problem down to a certain event as there had been updates to all 3 of the above mentioned system elements, OS, AV & Firefox. I tried to go through a number of suggested solutions to the problem without achieving anything. Pls note: -Browser is NOT set to "always search in privacy" -Browser is set to remember browsing history -Cross checking with MS Edge showed the same problem - means that it is probably not a Firefox internal issue -Tweaking MS/Edge privacy settings were equally unsuccessful

Does anybody have a suggestion where the problem might be rooted? I spent already several hours on this and it feels like a dead end. Thank you in advance for every hint in the right direction. JM

Firefox does not respond to a search request. After closing, a restart is answered by an error message - "Firefox is already running. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." When this is done, another instance of Firefox displays. It appears that two instances of Firefox have opened when only one was requested and the second has somehow disabled the search request, either manual (direct) or from a separate application/link. I have completed a Refresh without any change in behaviour. What can I do now? Thank you Graham Garden

I've used the "run" system and open the %temp% and deleted the temp files. It didn't delete the 137KB issue. I've used the "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cleanmgr.exe" to clean "windows C drive " and deleted more temp files. I've gone to "Settings" in Firefox and click on "Cookies and Site Data" and then click on "Clear Data" and that didn't delete the 137KB issue. What is odd about this there's no name on this file. The 137KB comes up at "Cookies and Site Data; "Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 137 KB of disk space". Could it be "BIOS"? It' been asking me to upload this software and I always click "later".


Please help! ! ! Sincerely, Dan Yee

The appearance of my toolbars and tabs has changed a lot without my permission. How does this happen? It has confused me a lot and is no longer as easy to use, in fact it has become a burden trying to figure out how to navigate each window / tab I have open. Ex: some things that were in my toolbar have disappeared. Also, there used to be a pair of vertical arrows I could click once to zoom in or out. Now it has disappeared and I have to go up to the main FF menu then click View then click Zoom then click one of four menu items. This is nuts and adds several more steps to what used to be one simple step. WHY???? I have not downloaded any new recent versions of FF and yet all these changes were made anyway without my knowing it or asking for it. How can I get back to my former version that I was happy with?

When I start Firefox for the first time, and click Bookmarks, it takes a little while to respond and populate the bookmarks list.

I've created a video to show the problem. You'll see that when I clicked Bookmarks, it becomes unresponsive for a sec or so before slowly populating the list.

I'm not sure when it started, but it was recently. What can I try to troubleshoot it? It behaves the same way in Firefox Safe Mode.

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

About a month ago, Firefox stopped loading web pages on my Windows 10 Lenovo Flex 14-IWL computer. The UI loads without any issues. However, no pages can be loaded, including Firefox's own pages like "about:preferences" or "about:performance." I completely removed all traces of Firefox from the computer twice (using Revo Uninstaller's advanced mode), but the problem remained after each reinstallation attempt. On the second of those reinstall attempts, I checked the Console after trying to load one of those control pages and found the error messages shown in the attached screenshot. What is happening, and how can I get Firefox working again?

(Note: Since I have completely uninstalled Firefox again since taking this screenshot, there is no troubleshooting data to send.)

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

There are no more borders around the tabs except the active one. It is hard to click click fast to change to another tab - special with pinned tabs with some icons blured with the theme I love. Also the theme-icons got deactivated and there is now the lower bar empty without the tabs. They went up into a new bar higher added. How can I fix that with boardred tabs located downwards and the intuitiv easier clickable icons back?

I had tried everything. I have deactivated all FOUR of my plugins and started up Firefox again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a fresh copy. I installed Firefox on an SSD even and it is still painfully slow. I have the same plugins and such on Chrome and that one opens up immediately. So I have been using Chrome a lot more lately because Firefox is opening slowly these days. Takes 15-20 seconds for Firefox to open every single time. I have deactivated each plugin one by one to see if they were causing the issue and sure enough, all of them were clean. Firefox still opens slowly.

On an unrelated note, I have been using Chrome a lot more lately also because some things on a webpage don't work on Firefox. I can't explain it. Like on the hickory farms website, I click on the Add To Cart button and it looks like it is being pressed, but nothing is added to the cart. This type of thing happens across the internet on many different sites. When I go to Chrome, everything works as it ought to. I have my settings set to Standard in Privacy and Security. I don't know where else I have to check and change things to get those buttons and other links and such to work.

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

The Firefox Community here has tried to be very helpful with all the users who hate the changes in Version 89/90, but we need Mozilla/Firefox to hear us.

CSS work-arounds are fine for the IT-literate, which I am not. They are also only temporary. We have no indication that FF is even paying attention to our complaints.

They need to understand that some users have a keyboard and mouse attached to a PC, not a touchscreen like on a pad or phone. It looks like FF wants to cater to touchscreens. This DOES NOT WORK for PC users.

I suggest one UI for touchscreens and a different one for PCs. IIRC, there is a FF version for Windows AND a different one for Apple; why not do the same?

Nobody seems to have any response other than "use this CSS fix." I've also been directed to "clean up the help platform myself" - huh?

Can we please get SOME kind of response from the platform itself? Or are they just trying to get rid of all users without touchscreens?

I am not happy about this as I typically have 20+ tabs open to do my work .It takes me at least 10 min to restore most of my tabs manually.

Please explain.
