Realclearpolitics.com says I'm blocking ads. I've turned off all my add-ins and turned off Enhanced Tracking Protections for the site. The site is detecting something, but, I don't know what.

I'm using Firefox on a MAC. It is the latest version (93.0 64 bit).

Can you help?

On certain websites this "Geckomain" process destroys my CPU to 100% and maxes my network traffic with more upload traffic than download, using a lot of my data and bandwidth etc. This is a major concern because I have to pay for my data, it's not unlimited. If left open this process will consume more than 1.5gb of RAM while nothing functions. The only way to stop it is to leave the website. I have to use these websites for my job, so I can't just avoid them. I need a resolution ASAP. Thank you.

Hi there,

We can scan QR code using Firefox in mobile but can we generate QR code in Firefox Web (PC/Mac)? It's very common and useful feature. It's available in Chrome. Then why it's not available in my lovely Firefox?

Please add this feature!

Thanks.

I did a clean install of Windows and forgot to backup the Firefox profile folder since frankly I didn't know it existed. I forgot my Firefox password before I knew about the recovery key. I reset the password and then found out resetting it deletes the bookmarks for security reasons.

Now I'm wondering, is there any way the staff could find my old bookmarks? I'm still holding onto hope.

Thank you for response.

I just formated my laptop, when was asked to give a name i just ended up writing the same one as the last one, then i logged in in Sync and all my data was lost, passwords, bookmarks, history, everything. I'm pretty sure it was because the laptop had the same name and was registered as the same device in Sync at the time of formatting. In my smartphone the data was gone too. Is there anything i can do? or it all lost?

I have been using ff for 15 years. I had to do a reiinstall of windows 10. I installed FF and can see the first page with my nominated browser, Google. When I search for a page, the address appears in the address bar but nothing happens. I have been trying this for over one hour. When I close down FF and reopen it, the first page comes up find and there was not a problem to navigate to here on your site but I still can't get to any other sites. When I click on this link it keeps coming back to this page. "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system. Show details »" Please help, I like using Firefox.

Almost 4-5 months I can't download anything with suspicious code inside (repack or keygen, or test compiled file, 4ex. from Github) cause FF defense blocks it every time even when it's disabled! And even when I manually allow to download this zipped file, I get an error message of damaged archive file format! FF crashes and damages my files!!! (Don't try to point on my other defense software - I don't use it and everything is disabled, and other browsers works good). This is very important bug for me, so I already think to change and migrate to Opera or another browser.

There are extensions that I am not using 99% of the time or use them at one website.

There a two options:

  • Make UX more friendly: add button to list an extensions with checklist to disable OR add "Disable extension" option inside menu between "Manage extension" and "Remove extension" (by right mouse click at extension icon at Toolbar.
  • Be cool if Mozilla Team will develop mechanism to switch between extension modes. As example I create my default exts mode (ublock, firefox notes, multi-account containers), but also time by time I save webpages by SingleFile extension, also I use proxy extensions so I create list for it. Lists may be as additional (default + proxy) as independent from scratch (proxy only).

Why? Privacy by isolation processes in the browser.

Hey guys,

I'm running my laptop on the latest version of Fedora, and using the latest version of Firefox although this issues has been happening with previous versions of Firefox too.

I'm not sure why but I'll be working and using Google sites fine sometimes (mostly gmail, google,google slides), but other times i will put the address in and nothing will happen, no timeout or anything as if I didn't do anything. I was even working with Google slides one time and I got signed out in the middle of my work and had to use a different browser to access slides again.

Anyone have any idea what my issues is?

Thanks.

Even if all add ons are turned off the only way to download anything is through Troubleshooting mode.

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.
