I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

A few weeks ago I noticed that browsing in Firefox started being slower / sluggish.

It usually happens in YouTube or Twitch, but can also happen while scrolling with the mouse in wikipedia for example.

Some examples: -When having a Twitch stream open, the stream is running fine, but when clicking and moving the volume slider on the player, it does not move smoothly, and with some delay. -When doing a bit more heavy browsing, sometimes a tab might get "stuck", for example, the twitch stream might start to buffer for a few seconds. I notice the buffering is not related to any bandwidth related issue. -Firefox reacts slower (or with a small delay) while moving between tabs, clicking on links, etc. This usually happens only after a few hours after launching and browsing with Firefox.

Most happen after a while since I launch Firefox. And by a while I mean maybe 2-3 hours, and I don't have a ton of tabs open. It becomes slower much, much faster than it used to in the past.

Now, sometimes it can take Firefox up to 30 seconds to close completely, before I can launch it again.

I had the same Extensions installed before these issues started happening.

I tried uninstalling Firefox completely, then manually deleting the remaining profile folder, and do a fresh install of the latest Firefox version.

I checked the Windows Task Manager, and it shows (14) processes under Firefox. Is this normal? I tried unticking the "Use recommended performance settings" and restarting Firefox, but it still reached (14) processes after a couple of minutes.


I am not sure if it is related to Firefox itself. My computer is 5 years old but functioning properly...

I did not check if similar issues happen on a different browser. I am just so used to Firefox.

I had a few weird bug in Windows 10, but those existed for a good while now, and are not similar to the ones I experience while browsing with Firefox. I didn't notice anything similar while watching video files in a Media Player.

I am not sure if it can be hardware related. All seem to be working properly...


I want to figure out what is causing this. If you need any more information let me know.

A very serious bug in all Firefox browsers (it's been around for several years!). If you open multiple tabs (many tabs) in your browser, virtually all settings will not work, e.g. you won't open Options, Menus, various tasks, extensions, won't save your bookmarks, and many other problems. Although the browser opens a page and the Tab works! But everything else is NOT WORKING, even in Safe Mode or Troubleshooting Mode! I've reported this many times: No developer help!

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

This problem has been happening for a long time now. When I'm playing a playlist in YouTube, and YouTube automatically select the next song in the playlist, the song stops and I get the message "Playback Paused because your account is being used in another location". This problem ONLY happens in Firefox and with this playlist scenario. If I select the song manually in the playlist, the song will play just fine. I've used other browsers Chrome and Microsoft Edge and DO NOT have the problem in there so I know my account isn't being used in another location. I've tried using multiple PC's/Laptops and both Windows 7 and 10 and the problem always only happens when using Firefox. I checked the About section in Firefox and it's showing Firefox is Up To Date.

Hey I was just trying to login to my account after I created a new windows and I got this issue The confirmation email we sent to *********@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account

Well can you just unlock my account as I know the password and have big data needed there. Also this email is closed by google and I mean closed not forgotten so it won't receive any emails.

Windows 10 Home.Lots of memory. Here is what the Firefox upgrade to 94.0.1(I believe that's it - can't tell because of loss of tool bar) has done to my laptop: (1) destroyed saved passwords (2) destroyed File History (3) Caused several programs to cease to function (4) destroyed bookmarks (5) destroyed task bar and eliminated all shortcuts (6) because of destruction of File History, made it impossible to do a Microsoft Restore.

This is truly the worst computer experience in my long life. I have tried desperately to tell Firefox NEVER TO UPGRADE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. No luck. I am absolutely sick at heart over the dire situation in which this unwanted upgrade has left me. Is there ANY HELP???????? I'm pretty desperate. Thanks for reading.

P.S. AND NO, I CAN NOT BOOT INTO SAFE MODE. Microsoft now hates me and is unable to install updates; however, life is not that simple. In spite of my telling MS not to update without permission, it continues to try - which fails, which wastes about 2.5 hours.

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)
