Hi,

I have had a really strange problem since working from home where i get broken calls with my softphone. To start with i put it down to my ISP/Router, but after some digging i noticed i am getting 400ms ping responses to my router at certain times of the day. All other devices on my network get <2ms ping responses. Reboot my surfacebook and pings go back to <5ms. After doing some testing i realised that it was Firefox causing the issues, soon as i close firefox, pings drop back to <2ms. Open firefox and work work on it for an hour or two and they creep back up to 400ms, close it and they drop. It's a test i have run multiple times as i didn't believe a browser would do this. Because i work in IT and i haven't reloaded my laptop for at least a year i thought i'd reload a fresh build of Windows...with just drivers and firefox....same problem. I have also run a stress test on the CPU / Memory to see if that had the same results, it doesn't.

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

I see the message I've quoted in the subject line "Transferring data from maps.googleapis.com..." in the status bar when I'm on the site of the public library near me. I am not doing anything with Google Maps. Google Maps is not open in another tab, I have closed Firefox and restarted since the last time I used Google Maps.

I wouldn't care if it didn't slow down Firefox. Sometimes it's stuck there for 30 seconds or more on an otherwise fast connection. Thanks.

My website, www.orthodoxdelmar.org, won't load in Firefox but will load in other browsers. I get a white screen in Firefox. I haven't had a problem with any other website.

I've tried going directly to specific pages on the site. I've exited and restarted Firefox. I've restarted my laptop. I can't find any setting where I might have accidentally blocked the page.

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10. Laptop only 4 months old.

What am I missing?

Thank you.

Several issues since doing a refresh for Firefox to speed up desktop

Several issues since doing a refresh for Firefox – email links open in new window instead of tab. New window does not have my bookmarks. New window will not move to another open window. Firefox Options does not control my Firefox.

When I open Firefox Options the top line reads “Your browser is being managed by your organization.” That link opens Enterprise Policies DNSOverHTTPS Enabled false Locked true

I still have the “Old Firefox Data” folder on my desktop from the refresh. I question if it would resolve the issues. If I delete Firefox and then re-install it, will I be able to find my many years, long list of bookmarks?

My system shows 78.0.2 (32-bit) Firefox on Windows 10, version 2004 – both latest updates

Hello everyone! I'm using Firefox 79 (64 bit on Windows 10). It happens that FF consumes a lot of RAM compared to any chromium browser. For example: just launched, FF consumes 400/500MB, Chromium 200/250. And it happens with every kind of sites opened. I tried to disable the extensions (I use only ublock and bitwarden), but nothing changed. I saw a difference when launching FF in safe mode, the RAM usage is lower. In fact, in the windows task manager, I saw a process of FF consuming a lot of RAM, I closed it and... the browser was still working! I don't know what to think, I tried all the troubleshooting procedures reccomended by Mozilla. Any ideas? Thanks!

Opening links from external applications (i.e.: Outlook, Word, a PDF, etc.) begins to open a new tab in Firefox, sometimes it'll open a "full" tab-width before hanging, more often than not, I'll see a sliver of the new tab while Firefox sorts itself out.

Typically when this happens, I'll see upwards of 50% CPU usage from Firefox itself. Memory seems sane.

Hardware acceleration, whether it's on or off, makes no difference. Issue persists in safe-mode, and safe-mode with add-ons disabled. Issue persists in Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition.

My windows 10 is forcing me to update windows. If i ignore the warnings. it just kills my unsaved work and restarts my computer. To make it worse. After I start Firefox again is starts to update too. And after the update all my Open tabs and session info is completely killed. The first time it was annoying. be now it is a reason to go back to an other browser. The last time i checked i was still the owner of my laptop. and not Microsoft and not Mozilla!

If this bug is not fixed I uninstall Firefox. I need a browser i can rely on. not just doing what it wants.

Hello,

Youtube is not working correctly in my browser. The version installed is 79.0 (64bit). It has the same behavior on both my Windows PC and my Mac. I have also tried in Safari on my Mac and it works normally.

The problem is that the videos appear a little bit to the right of where they should be, overlapping with other elements of the page and making some elements unclickable. Even if I somehow get used to this, I then face another problem when I try to go full screen - the video remains the same size and has a black background surrounding it. I can't click the full screen button anymore to exit the mode, I can only exit full screen with the Escape key at this point.

What I've already tried: - disabling picture-in-picture; - disabling uBlock origin; - switching the protection to Standard instead of Custom in Firefox Settings (since there was a hint there that some sites may not work normally if Standard is not selected); - checking the console on the developer tools for errors (none reported);

This started a few weeks ago and I thought it would eventually get fixed by an update or something, but it looks like it's here to stay. I've also searched for an explanation/solution but couldn't find any single person having the issue I'm facing.

Any help is appreciated, Thank you

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

Recently (within the last two weeks) I've noticed that my mouse cursor will randomly jump to the upper corner of my screen while viewing a page within Firefox. From my observation it's only happening within Firefox, and the only variable I can think of is that I started using containers to visually differentiate my tabs. I've since tried to revert back, but the problem persists.

I'm running a Surface Book (Gen 1) with dock and multiple monitors. If there's any additional information needed to better diagnose the problem I'm happy to supply it if it means finding a resolution.
