because google is broken im asking here.

https://i.imgur.com/T6cvwSK.jpg

I have 32gb ram so why cant firefox use 20gb? Firefox often max out at 7gb like the image, but once or twize i had it 9gb, but very rare, so why must my firefox lag using 7gb ram when it have another 15gb to pick from ? This is not about how to make firefox faster byt removing, resetting or that yada yada that google shove in your face when you search, I would rather increase ram to make it faster...If I upgrade to 64gb can i get firefox to use 50gb+ of ram ?

If so how do i do that, i feel like I always have lost of ram free, but firefox still lag instead of taking more ram to make it self go faster

I have a corrupt Windows profile that refuses to be repaired and I can't boot into it, so I need to grab what I can from the Windows Profile files and/or registry , I am particularly interested in the bookmarks, history but also the look and feel customisation of the toolbars etc.

I am aware that some of the data will be in the following folder

C:\Users\User1\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default C:\Users\User1\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default

Are there any other folders that need to be copied?

Once copied to a new windows profile is it enough to rename the xxxxxx.default folders above to yyyyyyy.default filename for the new profile or are there registry and/or filename changes required within other files?

Is there a utility that may make this easier?

The history display will show all sites I visited in previous months. How do I get it to show the date I visited that page during that month? I do not want the most recent visit, which it will display and is not during the month I'm looking at. For example, I login to my credit card account every month. History shows a visit to that site every month. I want to know what day of the month back in March I visited the site. Firefox knows I visited that site in March but it shows the most recent visit was May. Both are true. I need to know what day of March I opened the credit card site. Is that data available?

This has been complained about since 2013. There are closed Chrome help comments about this and was never resolved. Since it is happening in all computers I would feel it is the OS changes as Microsoft and Apple compete for add revenue. However it does not make any sense to be on a paid movie site and attempt to search for a movie there and have it Binged or Googled over the internet. This is piracy of your keystrokes and should be outlawed. The fix is to double click on the sites search to keep it there. What a pain. I wish some one would start a new OS so I don't have to be ripped off with my data. Let's get a black box that will trap the data at the home network.

When I turn on my computer (Windows 10) and open the browser (Waterfox browser), it opens to the pages I used last, which is what I want. But, when I open a new tab (by clicking on the +), it opens with a view of my screensaver plus the time/weather info instead of opening with a group of thumbnails for my most visited sites/pages. How can I change that? Have looked this up & it refers to an "options tool" that is supposed to be in the right corner of the new tab page but there isn't anything like that. When I go to the Menu, I can find this option but there is nothing listed under Tabs to show I want a new tab to open with my most recent visits. New tabs always opened before with thumbnails of my most recently visited sites/pages. This just started two days ago.

I was transferring my data from an older version of Firefox to the new version and always have enabled Firefox sync.

While setting up the new browser, I uninstalled an extension that had my settings from the new browser and it was automatically uninstalled from the older browser too.

Since I use Firefox sync, I want to know if it's possible to restore a restore the extension data from a specific time (before I deleted it). Trying to sync only restores it after the extension was deleted.

Generally, my Waterfox browser is great. Except when browsing Facebook pages. I'm at that site a lot, and if I'm uploading pictures, and roaming from page to page, after awhile the browser will slow down, or not respond at all > Task manager > Close browser > Restart > Repeat (a half hour or so later). I have absolutely no problems with any other sites I visit with this browser, just Facebook (and no problems with Facebook using Chrome or Edge). Thoughts and/or suggestions gratefully accepted. Thank you.

Windows 7pro is my operating system.

I have ~ 1mb of Bookmarks organized and saved in v.56; however, v.57+ as far as I can tell will destroy my organization.

Why should I destroy 20+ years of organization based on the requirements of my work?

And why can't Mozilla provide the option of maintaining older versions of Bookmarks and the Toolbar?

Seems like you've destroyed a wonderful product to cater to the game-playing millennials and sacrifice those of use you do real work!!

ps: I learned to program using Assembler, Fortran II on 4k, 8k and 16k computers. I do not surf the net nor belong to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or any of the other data-steeling trash websites.

Life is fine using DuckDuckGo, Ghoastery, https everywhere and common sense!!!

Verify custom search plugin parameters are used after installing a plugin

1st, I'm using Fx 52.8.0 ESR in Linux. I've created custom search engine plugins before, but http://mycroftproject.com/submitos.html - with a template to create a plugin & "test it" has changed some terms, requirements on their site (it seems).

In fact, the plugin - used from Fx search bar, brings an empty DDG page (even allowing scripts, cookies). Something the Mycroftproject template accepted is obviously not right.

I created one for DuckDuckGo using 8 or 10 custom parameters from DDG's "customize settings" page. Mycroft Project has lots of custom DDG plugins already posted, but I'd like to learn how to do it quickly for numerous sites.

I used "show full instructions." Under Search URL, I entered the domain & the custom parameters: https://duckduckgo.com/?kn=1 [example is shortened]. Other than using a script - I stored somewhere - to open the archive, ~/.mozilla/firefox/{profile name}/search.json.mozlz4, I don't see a way to check if a search plugin is using the correct parameters.

Plugin created on MycroftProject isn't working: If I do a DDG search from the search bar, the results page is blank (not even an empty search box). Can someone post a link to a complete example for DDG, that uses complete sentences & actual values, unless DDG or the Mycroft plugin creator wants symbolic entries like "{searchTerms}?"

If I open a DDG page using the bookmark w/ parameters - that DDG created, then a search from their search box works. It's apparently not what OpenSearch wants.

Either way, opening a DDG page with their bookmark, if I click their settings link, that page opens showing all default parameters, not my custom ones that are showing in the URL bar.

    • Isn't there an easier way to see the parameters used - especially if the plugin DOES work?

Another issue: When creating the plugin, http://mycroftproject.com/submitos.html showed an error: "No {searchTerms} parameter found. (case sensitive)" Where (all) are they expecting that? After all custom parameters? Are they wanting the actual symbolic {searchTerms} - entered where? Read several sites about using the Mycroft template - I decided to enter "{searchTerms}" under "Post Parameters." It shut up, but the plugin didn't work.

Note: One DDG, parameters like kn=1, are the same for Get or Post method, except the parameter instructing to use Get or Post. I'm not sure what they want under Post Parameters. DDG supports Post.

Image not used: Mycroft plugin creator asked for an image or icon. Mentioned 16x16 - maybe for an icon, but I uploaded a 16x16 png. When plugin is created, it uses Mycroft's site icon, not the DDG I uploaded. Maybe it wants images w/o square backgrounds?

So I'm using Firefox 56.0.2 on a Windows 8.1 tablet. Previously I had an older version (don't remember which one exactly unfortunately), so my problems started after upgrading. Previously quick touch controls press worked exactly like a left click with a mouse would while long press worked exactly as a right mouse click. It was the same with 56.0.2 initially, yet one day with no warnings touch controls randomly changed their behaviour. Quick press still opens links and can scroll pages, but it now completely refuses to select text. Long press instead of simply bringing up a context menu now both brings up a context menu and selects a word underneath with weird blue drops movable borders: https://imgur.com/kP7UgQU Long press now also opens links on certain websites like YouTube. Rolling back to FF50, launching FF, closing it down and immediately upgrading back to 56.0.2 fixes the problem for a couple of days, yet it comes back randomly on day 3 or 4. So the question is, why does it happen and how can I disable it for good.
