At the moment there is container feature, but it doesn't really work like how I prefer it to be.

1. A container is limited to a tab, not a Firefox window 2. Something similar to Chrome profile would be great. 3. My current flow is that each window is per profile, meaning that one window is for work, one for personal, etc.

Will Firefox consider this as a future improvement, or Firefox doesn't prefer this kinda of workflow?

There were a couple of posts asking the same thing I am, but no answers to either of the. You used to have that Theme and Font Size Changer but I hear that is not very useful anymore. Is there any other way to increase the text on tool bars and menus? It's just way too small. Text on web pages is fine but I can't hardly read the tool bars and menus unless I really squint. Why would you want to make it so terribly small with no way to adjust it?

When I have Firefox 67 (FF) set as my default browser in Windows 10, embedded hyperlinks in third party applications won't open in FF. If I change my default browser to Edge or Chrome these links will open in either application but if I switch back to FF as the default browser they won't open again in FF.

Is there a setting somewhere I could have accidentally set when implementing the privacy features within FF or is there some other reason someone can assist with as to why this would start happening.

Thanks.

For maybe a couple of weeks now, the FF icon on the Taskbar has been most of the time blank white. The desktop icon is fine, and everything else works OK. Occasionally, but not always, if I right-click the taskbar icon and select Delete, the icon is not deleted, but suddenly the FF icon is there. Other times the icon is deleted.

If I then right click the desktop icon and select Pin To Taskbar, it appears on the taskbar but with a blank icon.

I'm baffled.

I have not added nor removed any extensions or add-ons. I simply opened firefox today and the window took up my whole screen as usual, but the actual browser, menu bar, etc only took up the top left corner of that window. The menu bar and all buttons on the browser work, but they act as if they are still in their original place, not where they are on the screen. To explain, it's like if you went to click the close window box on what you see, you'd be about 1/3 across the top of your screen from the left, but it's not there. You then go to hover over where it normally would be, on the top right corner, and then the close window box turns red to close. So it still thinks it's full size, but it's not. I can restart in safe mode and then it works, but as soon as you close and reopen, it goes back to mini Firefox. Attached is the image of what I see. Firefox opens and takes up the whole screen (where you see the small window and then the rest is white background).

Since updating to Firefox 67, myself and my clients either have a **.default or a **.default-release profile. This is despite the fact that we only have one version of Firefox installed and some computers have the -release profile whereas others don't for some reason.

I am aware that a number of people have reported this. However, it's not clear if this is a bug where there is only one version of Firefox installed or intended result.

My main question is going forward will Firefox be using the -release format or the .default profile? In other words, was there a bug in a Firefox version causing it to create a -release profile even if there if there was only one Firefox version installed or is it just a case of some computers have not phased in the new profile name yet. This would explain the inconsistencies between computers.

The reason that this is a problem is because I use a script to install ublock origin and also to copy a user.js preferences file to configure Firefox. I am now having to copy to both -release and .default profiles on every computer and I have designed the script to install ublock to a -release profile.

I would prefer to have one profile moving forward, but need to know whether this will be .default-release or simply .default. Thank you

At the moment I have 4 pages open in tabs.

But each of them except the current page have lost their content and if I switch back each tab has to reload the page.

This just started happening after the lastest update. 67.0

For example I am on support community page if I tab back to Youtube which was open, it is now blank, has the tab description but reloads the page.

It's the same for all the tabs.

Any ideas. It's very annoying and thinking perhaps time to switch to chrome.

I've tried most of the Netflix (website's) suggestions to troubleshoot why videos won't play with Firefox; none could fixed the issue. The only suggestion I did not try is to disable Private browsing mode simply because I don't know how to do it and Firefox Support does not specifically address this task. I've also tried the suggestions provided by various forum responders to this issue ... again, no fix! Can someone please provide specific instructions on how to disable Private browsing?

I'm tired of switching from FF to IE every time I want to watch a movie.

I am using Video Download Helper with companion app, when downloading videos, the DownloadHelper will uses only one process of Firefox with very high CPU and memory usage. . Ans cause it does not take advantage of all the CPU cores it is very slow, and uses high memory for that process and will make all tabs in Firefox slow.

It seems that this process is the core process for Firefox, although it is a sub-process. It is the process that almost doesn't uses GPU memory.

When finished, if I killed this Firefox process to clean memory, cause it will just accumulate the memory in that specific process, all the tabs in the Firefox will crash and can't be refreshed, until I close Firefox and open it again.

Usually when I kill a Firefox process that is not responding, it will crash a few tabs and they can be refreshed after that.

Is there anyway that can make the companion app uses all processes for Firefox, so it will distribute the CPU usage to all cores, and if used a high memory it will be distribute the memory to all process and will be easier to clean.
