Beginning two days ago, Firefox will not log me into multiple sites including substack.com, seekingalpha.com, epochtimes.com (login not even visible). On other sites (especially schwab.com, fmls.com) basic functionality is limited. I have no issues logging into or using these sites normally using Chrome.

I've turned of strict privacy standards (if they don't work, what the point of using a privacy/security centric browser). I've also turned off tracking protection for these sites, to no avail.

I've used Firefox since it was created, but it is making life difficult for me now on the web. I don't want to use Chrome, but it does work. Please help.

Thanks, Jim

Fission locks up my PC to the point where nothing works. Even keystrokes are simply ignored. Looking at the Task Manager, I find a huge number of Firefox processes running with 100% CPU usage. If I wait until CPU usage goes down, the PC starts working again. The number of processes shown is significantly more than the actual number of Firefox copies running. Note that these are individual copies because I do not use tabs.

With Fission disabled, PC lockup is no longer a problem. The number of processes shown more closely matches the actual number of Firefox copies running, and the CPU no longer gets smacked with 100% usage.

Since I upgraded to Windows11, I am unable to open the Login Pages on my Routers, there is no issue with other browsers, and I have checked on another computer with windows10 to make sure they still open in firefox there. (Firefox 97.0.1 64 bit) I have tried troubleshooting mode with the same problem I have routers from D-Link and TP-Link. I just get a blank white page after entering the URL - and the page is flagged as "connection is not secure"

Is there some setting I need to change?

For some reason (probably Microsoft vandalism), Firefox was removed from my startup programs a few weeks ago. I looked in the MS list of apps and saw 2 versions of x64 Firefox, -GB and -US. Being in GB, I chose to uninstall the US version. Then Firefox stopped working. It was not longer shown on my desktop, and had disappeared from the start menu. But the GB version was still listed in the app list (209MB), but I cannot find out how to start it. IOBit suggests it is buried in ../Appdata/local. It does not appear when I use the taskbar search for Firefox.

So I reinstalled Firefox, but the tool gave no options on which version to install, nor where to install it. The US version was reinstalled on my C: drive. Just going round in circles.

How do I solve the problem? Thank you.

Hello, recently I noticed both of my computers get hot and fans get loud, I did some research and figured it's the Firefox that's causing it when I go to task manager the memory usage is always high and the CPU sometimes spikes up to 60-70% usage and the power usage is at very high . One of the laptops is windows 11 and the other is windows 10 . Please let me know if there's any fix to this. Thank you.

Hi, The attached image explains the problem in 3 steps. 1. I try to add a bookmark, a pop-up window appears. OK. 2. I get a menu with some recent bookmark folders, but I want a different one, so I press "Choose folder". OK. 3. Now I need to browse among numerous folders in my bookmarks, it worked fine before, but I cannot do it anymore because the folder names are not visible! As if they are written with a white font on a white background. I can scroll, choose (blindly) some folder, which is marked by the faint rectangle visible on the image. And the bookmark will be saved to that folder indeed. But scrolling blindly through my hundred folders is obviously not practical.

The problem appeared 1-2 weeks ago, probably after a FF update. Now I updated FF to the latest version 97.0.1, it doesn't help.

A couple of months ago I did some changes in FF config in particular to make bookmarks appear more dense: newer FF versions introduced huge vertical space between bookmarks. I can't remember what exactly I did (followed some recipe on internet), but it didn't introduce any problems. The problems appeared 1-2 weeks ago. System: Windows 10.

I recently noticed that my Firefox hadn't updated in a few weeks. When clicking on Help -> About Firefox the Check for Updates button is missing (I was at 97.0). I then downloaded the latest version of Firefox which created a 2nd Firefox icon. I deleted the old Firefox and am now using 97.0.1 but the About Firefox window is still missing the check for updates button (see attached pic).

Also strange is that in the Settings Menu, under General, there are no choices for anything (the other options work) (see attached pic).

Thanks!

Hi there. When using specifically FaceBook, whenever I click in the text box and start typing, the page suddenly scrolls down so the text input box is almost hidden. I have: Turned off all plugins/addons Tried in Trouble Shoot mode Tried in another browser (Edge) Everything works as expected in Edge - when typing, no matter where the input box is, the page does not scroll/move. When typing in FireFox, as soon as a button is pressed within the cursor in the text input box, the page will scroll down, almost obscuring the box, and it's very annoying as the page should not move when I type, it should stay where it is. So far, FaceBox seems to be the only affected page that I use. Any pointers gratefully received! Many thanks - Tim Windows 10 21H2 FireFox 97.0.1 (64-bit)

Your version 97 update somehow got installed on my computer -- even though I had purposefully DISABLED automatic updates. You have obviously made some very bad choices in update 97 regarding web site display. Now several web sites that I use regularly DO NOT display properly and are hence extremely difficult to use. I have used Firefox for many years and have generally been satisfied with it. But this new and very serious problem with your 97.0.1 version is completely unacceptable.

How can I easily get back to a prior version of Firefox that does display web sites properly, especially without losing all of my settings, cookies, etc?

If easily getting back to a prior version of Firefox is not possible, then I will have no other option but to completely abandon your browser, and instead use Chrome or some other browser that is more stable that Firefox!!

Even your own web site does not work properly as it does not allow me to select the box below to "Email me when someone answers the thread"
