Hello, Under about:preferences I went to applications. Under mailto there were references to Yahoo and Gmail which I deleted. Now then when I click on an email address link on a webpage the mailto menu pops up like it always has but Yahoo and Gmail are no longer listed as email options. How do I get those links back? Firefox is listed as the default option but because there are no links to webmail services there is no way to send an email from that menu. Sincerely, MKH

Do you (as a Mac user) experience the same or similar:

44 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content ranging from 60MB-918MB each, with 18 of them above 200MB and 5 of them above 400MB. I have 15 tabs open and in practical terms almost nothing else open on the computer (a brand new M3 silicon iMac). It has 8 GB of memory. I had similar experiences in the past, but never as bad as now. I do not know everybody else can live with this.

Is this how Firefox is designed to operate or is this a bug?

Thanks.

I usually have firefox running. Sometimes I want to display a file on my computer in firefox. Until today (don't know what happened today) I could; firefox would add a new tab for display of that file. Now it gives me an error, reports, 'Firefox is already running, but not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile'. This is inconvenient.

For years I've been able to input a website keyword (let's say "cnn" like in an old report I ran across) and the "www." and ".com" portions would be added without my typing them. Some time ago, this started to fail. Why?

I tried about:config changes that were said to work with the old "cnn" problem report but nothing helps for me.

Also, I use the local Windows Hosts file to give my router a quick reference name to get into it. That too has worked for years but began to fail last year. Inconvenient. The best I could track this down, it has something to do with forced DNS lookups and skipping the old Hosts file. If so, any work around to get my system simplicity back?

Help is appreciated. I liked the challenge of computer geekdom 30 years ago but I'm getting too old for this, well, you know the old saying.

Hello, I'm using Firefox as my default browser for a while now (10+ years) and I'm getting frustrated with this issue when using Azure Devops. Comments don't load at all and most pages take a long time to load if they load at all. Various features also take a long time to load or don't work at all (examples include adding a reviewer, referencing a story with #, etc.). Anyone else experience this?

It works well for maybe an hour, and after a couple of days it makes no sense anymore.

Now I'm using firefox containers with a container only for Azure Devops and seems working better but ... Curious thing is that it pops up and asks for credentials periodically every 5 or 10 minutes. Well, unless the boxes are already filled up with the credentials.

Thanks,

Hi all,

I feel like this is a problem that must have been experienced and solved a thousand times... however I've tried all the suggested fixes I can find and the problem still persists.

When I load Firefox the pages take ages to load. It doesn't matter what the page is, it takes ages, except that about: pages load fine, no problem. When I say pages take ages to load, I mean that everything about the page takes ages, not only the next, not on the images and other content etc, everything. This only started happening today and I only created a new profile a month or so ago. I don't have many tabs open (maybe 20) of which 9 are pinned. I do have lots of extensions installed.

I've tried troubleshooting/safe mode, that makes no difference.

Private browsing and loading another profile are fine, they don't have this problem.

I've cleared all cache and data, cookies, etc, including startup cache.

I've deleted the content-prefs file, and removed places files.

I've tried disabling and enabling hardware acceleration.

I've tried disabling TRR.

Probably some other things too, but so far nothing has worked.

Suggestions please! :)

My wife's computer has the exact same version of Firefox and has no problems whatsoever. Any thoughts, please?

Hello all,

I've had some recent issues with my Firefox browser. All the Google services (Youtube, search, Gmail, Drive, GMeet) sometimes randomly do not load. The GET request is sent, but there is no answer. All the other websites work perfectly, and when I make the same Google related request via a private window, it (usually) works. So it does not seem to be a connection issue.

This was due to an update to Firefox I did recently. I already encountered that problem after an update end of 2022, and I reverted to an older version to remove the issue (106.0.3). Unfortunately some services don't work with it anymore, so I updated to the most current version (122.0.1 64 bits) thinking that the issue would be fixed. Unlucky for me, the problem came back.

I tried quite a lot of the basic things:

  • Remove all the plugins
  • Remove cache and cookies
  • Uninstall Firefox
  • Restart the computer (Windows 10 by the way)

I saw on a lot of forums pages that what worked for most people was to to set security.tls.enable_0rtt_data = false on the about:config, which I did, but the problem persists. I also noticed that when I reset Firefox, some visuals from Google services will have trouble to load the first few times I go on the page (as shown on the image attached). Not sure if it is relevant though.

Would you have any idea what I could try? My job is primarely focused around the Google Suite, so that is becoming a significantly painful problem to deal with...

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi. Is there anyone having experienced similar phenomena?

1) Firefox stops showing Gmail correctly after a few days. Immediately after starting Firefox, I can log-in and open Gmail.com correctly. But after a few days keeping opening Gmail on Firefox, Gmail.com shows error messages regarding Cookie (please see the attached screenshot). If I do "Try clearing the startup cache" from trouble shooting information tab, Firefox shows Gmail correctly again, but after a few days the same issue happens again.

2) Fire fox cannot log-in on Outlook.live.com. As title says, I cannot log-in outlook live. Whenever I try to log-in from Outlook log-in page, Firefox shows log-in page again. This issue isn't resolved by inactivating "Enhanced tracking protection".

Both of them started to happen since the update around the end of 2023, I think. (On the other hand, Chrome works on both websites correctly)

If you have some information, it might help me. Thanks in advance.

I am a single user of Firefox 123.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 11 desktop, Win 11 laptop, and Android phone. If I use Profile Manager to delete both of the the Profiles from my desktop ("default" and "default-release"), will that have any effect on my laptop or phone? Specifically, will I lose my passwords and bookmarks on all devices, or just the desktop?

Also, can I delete one of my two profiles? If so, which one? When I navigate to Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see four folders:

 lamrm8zp.default-release,  2/26/2024
