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!

Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox

Hello,

On my website I have a button to download my book in EPUB format. You can see it here: https://imwithlorac.com/get-the-book/#downloads

In the other browsers the file is downloaded, but in Mozilla it opens directly in the browser and unless you have installed in Mozilla an EPUB reader, a page with the raw file opens which does not make any sense. It's the same with the MOBI format. On the other hand, with the PDF format the PDF book opens because Mozilla can open PDF files. What I want is that it doesn't open, but that it downloads when people click on the link.

Does anyone know how?

Thanks

For some reason, I've noticed the volume meter in the Windows Volume Mixer shows Firefox outputting higher then what's actually going through the speakers. I double-checked this wasn't just a weird driver issue/Windows 10 being weird by trying some other programs which all seem to be outputting fine, but Firefox for whatever reason is the only application doing this. I've included a screenshot of a YouTube video playing, when I try the same video on a different browser, this weird issue doesn't happen.

Hello, I've noticed that in the very latest versions CTRL+F5 is much less efficient.

I'm using Developer Edition, 80.0b5. When I press CTRL+F5 websites very often don't reload css.

I can check this by opening the source code and opening the css file, it still shows the old version. If I press CTRL+F5 directly inside the css file, then it updates, but still the page itself won't load the updated version right away.

If I use a private window, I see all updates immediately.

Sometimes after hitting CTRL+F5 many times it will finally update.

This never happened before, is this a bug, does anybody else experience this, is there a fix?

Thanks.

I use Firefox 79. I have removed all the extensions except my antivirus (Avast Ultimate) which includes a VPN but the VPN is currently turned off. I have Firefox 79 installed on two computers, one of which connects by CPL ("powerline adapters/homeplugs") and the other connects to the router by an ethernet cable. My Firefox settings are identical on both machines and I have no Captcha problems with the one using the ethernet cable. I also completely turned off my home network and reset it - fibre optic box, router, both computers, and unplugged the CPLs - and then restarted them from the optic box forwards one by one. It made no difference, the CPL problem still exists.

I sought help on the Microsoft Community Forum and sent the two blokes I was working with all the above info and they concluded that the problem wasn't with the CPLs which, incidentally are TP-LINK, model TL-PA7010P(KitFR) with the Version 3 software. All three lights on each of the CPLs are solid green. I have also informed TP-Link France of the problem and I'm waiting for their reply. Following advice from one of the blokes on the MS Forum, I ran a Speedtest.net on the CPL machine and the results were: downloading 91.99Mbps and uploading 87.47Mpbs and the Ping response was 20. (This is all nonsense to me but may help you.) Both people on the MS Forum concluded that the problem does not lie with the CPL.

I'm going to replace the CPLs with a 30m ethernet cable (less aesthetically pleasing and more encumbering) to see if that resolves the issue.
