Hey, I don't know if it's just me but maybe it might be an update or something but Firefox will spike in RAM usage, I'm talking about 3GB for one tab seemingly out of nowhere, and it's not website specific, it could a YouTube video, or Meet, it also doesn't matter whether the tab is active or not, the spike happens to any tab even background tabs and Firefox basically becomes unusable. I've restarted the browser, removed extensions nothing seems to help and my firefox is up to date.

An addon I downloaded added Smart Ad Block. It's been spontaneously redirecting Google to Bing and about:addons redirects to about:blank. The addons list will not appear so I can't remove any addons or extensions. I previously thought that Microsoft Co-Pilot was redirecting me. But I looked at the "Back" list. The redirect showed "search.smartadblock.net".

This morning, my Firefox browser was unable to open so I downloaded it again and tried to sync up my browser using my email address. When I used my email address and reset the password, a much older version of my browser without all my bookmarks logged in. I've only use the *hidden for privacy*@gmail.com email address so I'm not sure if I have two profiles under that email. On my phone which has been sync'd to my profile for years, I have all the bookmarks that I've been using for year. I don't want to sync it now so I don't loose it.

I even tried running in safe mode but the problem remains. If I copy an image from anywhere - Discord, a website, the snipping tool in windows - and go to paste it into Facebook/Plurk/anything similar, it doesn't work.

This works perfectly in Chrome and used to work perfectly in Firefox. This is becoming infuriating. I can't even do 'take screenshot' and have it paste.

I have been using Firefox for YEARS. I love it, and have always been able to sign-in from a new device and have my bookmarks brought to my new device. For some reason, that is not happening this time.

When I click to sync or import bookmarks, the only options I have are Chrome, a couple others, and from Firefox HTML or CSV file. I do not know how to save the bookmarks. I would think that I could save them on a external hard drive and bring them over, but I do not know that process. It was so much easier when I could log in and bring them over.

Please help. I was so confident when purchasing this new laptop, now I am a bit irritated. Please explain how to bring my bookmarks over to my new device.


Thank you!

Hi,

I use the latest FF for MacOS.

When I "close" Firefox by clicking the red cross in the top left corner of the window, I lose all open tabs when I start again despite having the option of restoring the previous session checked. When I "close" the whole thing (right click on FF in the Dock, Quit, and then re-open), all my tabs are back normally.

So basically every time i click this red cross, by mistake or not, I lose anything that's open.

Feels like I did not have this issue before.

Anyone has a workaround or experiences a similar issue?

Thanks!

If I had multiple FIREFOX windows running, and closed FIREFOX down (not the multiple sessions, but the FIREFOX window) when I reopened Firefox all the sessions would start back up, even if I rebooted the computer. My HD failed, and now with the new system, I'm back to one Firefox opening with the home screen. How do I restore this feature?

I have a Mac desktop, a laptop with Windows 11, and an Android phone. I have about 120 bookmarks saved. On my Mac, they periodically backup fine and I can restore them if anything goes wonky. My phone and Windows laptop both show all the same bookmarks as the Mac. However, if I go to Manage Bookmarks to restore them on the Windows laptop, it shows many backups have occurred but only 5 bookmarks have been backed up. I have signed out of Firefox on all devices and signed back in. The Windows laptop did one correct backup showing the 120 or so bookmarks, and then every subsequent backup shows only 5 again. After a few weeks, the "correct" backup has been overwritten and is gone.

Anybody know what I can check to make the Windows laptop backup my bookmarks correctly?

When you add a new bookmark to a folder it's added at the end of the existing list.

Is there a way to make Firefox add it at the top of the list, instead?

I found an old answer, but, sadly, the extension granting my wish is no longer.

Also, I already know about sorting, but it's not what I need, because I'm doing a lot of manual bookmarks reordering and sorting will nullify it.

Thank you :)
