Opening links from external applications (i.e.: Outlook, Word, a PDF, etc.) begins to open a new tab in Firefox, sometimes it'll open a "full" tab-width before hanging, more often than not, I'll see a sliver of the new tab while Firefox sorts itself out.

Typically when this happens, I'll see upwards of 50% CPU usage from Firefox itself. Memory seems sane.

Hardware acceleration, whether it's on or off, makes no difference. Issue persists in safe-mode, and safe-mode with add-ons disabled. Issue persists in Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition.

I asked this previously on Twitter and after the fixes suggested didn't work (at least not permanently), support on Twitter sent me here. (Would have been nice for you to determine the appropriate forum and topic rather than me having to do it, by the way, "AT").

I am still getting a dragging slow Firefox using what seems like an inordinate amount of memory (though I could be wrong, check the images). My first message to support included the first image with the comment: "Yes, I've already refreshed Firefox. Yes, I've cleared my cache. Yes, I've removed all of my extensions/add-ons, though I need them back now." I then followed the instructions to try "disabling Firefox Hardware Acceleration and deleting content-prefs.sqlite".

Deleting sqlite and disabling FHA seemed to work for a while but a) is there a script I can run to auto-delete the content-prefs.sqlite daily so I can depend on your browser. And more pressing, b)second image memory usage.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

Hey, I'm using the restore previous session feature. Its really helpful, but I assume since the last update it is not working properly. Whenever I use the private firefox browser (window) parallel to the normal one (window) and close the normal browser before the private one, my last active session of the normal browser is not restored.

When I close the private firefox window before the normal firefox browser window everything works fine with restoring the tabs.

Any way around? And please fix this annoying bug. Thanks!

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?
