I use two bridge websites which have sound effects when playing - e.g. when a card is played or a message is displayed. Each sound instance consumes 20MB of memory for audiodg.exe, so that after a couple of hours or so it runs out of memory and Firefox crashes. If I use Chrome instead then this problem does not occur.

Ok, thanks, finally human help! I just had to change my pc and make a fresh install of the operating system. I used Linux mint on the last pc, and have Linux MX 18.3 on the new one, currently in use. I took the precaution of copying my Firefox and Thunderbird folders from the old hard drive, as I have several years worth of bookmarks organised in to folders, irreplaceable. This was the way I had preserved that information in previous changes, and swapping the old folders with those in a new install worked fine. But now i find the new version has changed and the files differ and cannot therefore be swapped. I don't really want to get into blaming or how disappointed and annoyed I am, as this won't be the fault of the person helping, and that is appreciated. But back ups need to be backwards compatible or there is no point? So, not sure which version I had, but will have been a couple of years old with updates. In my 'etc' folder there was a Firefox folder, and in that I have a folder marked pref. In that folder there is a file named apturl.js and I have saved those folders. With my new install there is not even a folder for 'firefox' in my 'etc' folder. How do I proceed to restore my bookmarks? If I need to install and older Firefox version I will do so. Many thanks, Tony

it used to be so easy to close multiple tabs in the previous version of Firefox. A right-click and the single key Would close either all other tabs for tabs to the right. I use it all the time.

New method that requires multiple mouse clicks and traversing a drop-down menu is clunky, time-consuming, and annoying. There's no reason both options couldn't be available at the same time.

Is there a way to submit a request for this in the next update?

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

Microsoft is stopping Firefox from accessing the Lovemoney.com website. Does anyone know why?

It started today. It only applies to Firefox v81, I tried Edge and Vivaldi and they were OK. Perhaps it is because Firefox is my default browser?

I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit v 2004, build 19041.508. My email is handled by Microsoft Azure and I use Outlook to view it. The selection of mail that goes into The Junk Email folder is random, moving the sender to my white list does not stop them being junked, so I check the Junk folder and move the messages that I want to save into my Inbox.

Today, I moved a message from Lovemoney.com to the Inbox and looked at it in the Outlook preview window. I clicked on a link for an article I was interested in and a page opened with a title of Microsoft, a message saying:The request is blocked. followed by a long error code. To see if the link in the message was bad, I typed https://www.lovemoney.com/ into the address bar and got the same result.

Here is the page source: <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="content-type"> <style type="text/css"> body { font-family:Arial; margin-left:40px; } img { border:0 none; } #content { margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto } #message h2 { font-size: 20px; font-weight: normal; color: #000000; margin: 34px 0px 0px 0px } #message p { font-size: 13px; color: #000000; margin: 7px 0px 0px 0px } #errorref { font-size: 11px; color: #737373; margin-top: 41px } </style> <title>Microsoft</title>

I know, this has been asked before, but either the answer did not help or the addons to solve the problem were removed. In ealier versions the popup for entering the masterpassword did popup when a site asked for a password. Now it pops up some seconds after the start, usually when I'm typing an URL or a search. How to change that? May I either set the seconds somewhere after which it pops up or set FF to not steal the focus if I am typing (which is a very bad behavior!) or change it back to only ask if a site requests a password? I'm frustrated enough to disable the masterpassword which can't be the solution. Thanks in advance
