I normally use Firefox desktop on my Linux computer.

Last week, I started using it on a public computer running Windows. I installed Firefox Portable and then logged/synced into my Firefox account on this Win computer. I noticed that in the Firefox Portable Windows “about:preferences” page, it says “Your browser is being managed by your organization”, which links to about:policies. In that “about:policies” page, it shows this https://i.imgur.com/JmD8nXg.png Policy Name: DisableAppUpdate Policy Value: true. Now I’m back on my Linux desktop computer and it also has this “managed by your organization” message in “about:preferences” and the same “about:policies” stuff. In other words, it appears that this policy was copied from the Windows public computer to my personal Linux computer. I don’t want that.

How can I undo this? And how can I block this sort of policy syncing?

why is FireFox 95 opening multiple windows on startup with Windows 10, Roboform, & Norton 360? FireFox is set to open a new tab, not new windows, so I do not know why it is doing this? I see lots of people asking this question, but there is no guidance online. What is up? This is causing FireFox to use way too much resources, and slows the computer.

After upgrading to firefox-bin-96.0 on Gentoo Linux, I found that a number of extensions are malfunctioning.

uBlock Origin: 1) Not blocking content. All ads appear. I see this error message in the console: Error: Could not establish connection. Receiving end does not exist. | content_script.js

2) Toolbar icon does not show blocked items count (probably due to above)

3) Clicking toolbar icon causes resulting popup to appear as a vertical line (normal height but just a couple of pixels wide) with no content.

4) Going to Add-on settings and choosing "Preferences" from the add-on's 3-dot menu, the resulting tab crashes.

5) After removing and re-installing the add-on, its button does not appear on the toolbar.

6) After creating a blank profile and installing the add-on, all the above still happens.

7) After downgrading to firefox-bin-95.0.1, all the above still happens.

Ghostery: 1) Works on first install (did not previously have this installed); but after restarting Firefox, no longer works.

2) Breakage symptoms similar to uBlock Origin: No blocked items counter (and no blocking). Preferences tab still works though.

Multi-Account Containers: 1) Clicking on toolbar icon opens normally-sized but empty popup.

2) Opening a site that's configured to open in a container from a New Tab page tile, the site opens but *not* in the configured container (tab edge is not highlighed in container's colour-code).

Hello,

There is this one website where scrolling with keyboard keys (arrows or PgUp/PgDown) works intermittently. Sometimes it works when I load the page and then it stops (usually when I switch to another tab and then return to it), sometimes it doesn't work from the start. I went through the usual diagnostics (safe mode, new profile etc.) and even though sometimes they seemed to help at the beginning, the problem always returned. I kind of gave up on it, since the time consumed by me trying to find a solution is disproportionate to the minor annoyance it causes, but it still mystifies me. FWIW, it's a blog with a very long Disqus comment section (the latest post has nearly 1,500 comments). Maybe the problem has a very simple solution which I've just failed to find?

(see the System Details for the troubleshooting information - c)

I really, really need something to increase the size of all the icons in the toolbar. The size of the text is fine, but surprisingly the size of the icons is ridiculously small.

This thread does not help me, because for some reason the value '1.5' decreases the size, and the value '2' makes no difference at all.

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too.

Recently started that Firefox 95 no longer changes focus in Ubuntu 20.4 when mouse click is applied. Another Firefox window can be selected through taskbar mouseover on the logo or by minimizing one Firefox window to get to another Firefox window. A simple mouseover, no click, changes focus from Firefox to a window from another application and back to Firefox. This too is a new behavior. But, neither mouseover nor mouse click will change focus to another Firefox window.

I've had 4 different Firefox windows for months now or even more than a year. I use two monitors and I use lots of tabs. It has been easier for me until now to organize like that. I have 3 Firefox windows on my main monitor - one of them has like 10 tabs open. The other has 5. And the third one had maybe around 100. On the other monitor I have the last 4th Firefox window that has around 500 tabs open. I do this all the time where I get to a point in which I review them all in a day or two, filtrate thru the content I saved thru this method and after that reset the browser. So today I started this cleaning process with the 3rd window that had over 100 tabs. Was going great when suddenly I clicked the X button on the whole window and without any warning it instantly closed. I restarted the computer and nothing happened. All my information from over 100 tabs now gone forever and honestly this might sound funny to you but I'm literally having a panic attack right now having difficulties breathing. Before when it happened at times that I click the close button on these windows it always asked me a warning message if I want to close the window with these X tabs. No matter if the tabs are 10, 100 or 800. Always. No matter how many windows I have opened with different tabs in them. I immediately checked my settings and I see that "Confirm before closing multiple tabs" wasn't turned on which like NO WAY IN HELL did I go in the settings menu and turned that thing off. I haven't been in the settings menu since I installed firefox on this PC which was after I got my Windows OS like 2 years ago. And as I said I remember multiple times in these past months where I clicked the close button and it asks me if I want to close these X multiple tabs. So I dunno how that happened. Also I had the "Open previous windows and tabs" TURNED ON but that also didn't work apparently for some reason. So I'm not really sure what question I want to ask here, I guess I want some explanation why these things happened when clearly they shouldn't have and it wasn't my fault/mistake (from my point of view considering the facts). And also if there is any way to restore that window with the closed tabs.

So why does firefox need to have so many processes opened for one tabbed window for a single tab?

3 Years later and this is still broken.

I have a win10 with 16gig ram and have found the system slowing down look at the task list and will find Firefox with 18gig of the memory and 90% of the cpu.

I have 9 tabs open to different sites but will see 30 firefox processes open.

At initial boot of FF only 9 to 10 processes open but the longer it stays open the more memory and processes it consumes just like a BOT virus would.

Why has this not been resolved?

Once the process shown a single with 1 gig memory just itself but many times the memory is spread out across multiple processes from half a meg to 500 meg per process.

Greetings,

For a few months I've been experiencing consistent crashing in Firefox 95.x versions. At first the crashing happened "randomly" while browsing Facebook, but I eventually identified a pattern and learned that the crashes would happen when a Facebook 3D photo attempted to render in the feed.

Since then, I'm able to consistently reproduce the same crashing issue by opening Google Maps and launching street view. The crash happens immediately when street view attempts to load (unsuccessfully). This happens even with all plugins disabled.

Unfortunately I've had to failover to Google Chrome due to the stability issues in Firefox, though I would like to return to Firefox if this issue can be resolved. The issue does not present itself in other browsers.

I'm currently on Firefox v95.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7, and my GPU is an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M.

Thanks for your support.
