All the family use my PC with their own user accounts. Frequently Firefox goes slow and whenever I check 'About Firefox' I see 'Firefox is being updated by another instance'. This means that I have to log off all other users and then let my Firefox run an update check which, of course, normally just comes back with 'up to date'.

The problems are normally evidenced by Firefox just being very slow and/or only showing parts of the page and those parts changing as and when the page is scrolled.

This is a real problem with Firefox and makes it very unpopular with my family due to its unreliability.

Could not Firefox be set to only do an update check when it can actually complete the check and/or update.

Any advice appreciated.,

thanks,

Rob

Scroll through a web page. Hey - there's an image I want to save! I right click on it and select "View Image" to make sure the host site isn't doing anything stupid. Nope - all good! Image shows up it it's own browser window, and address bar shows the path to the file on the host's server - AND IT ENDS IN ".JPG"

Right click - "Save Image As..."

Why THE HELL does the file dialog come up ONLY offering me the option to save as ".WEBP"???

It's shown in the browser as a JPG. I want to SAVE IT IN THE SAME FORMAT!  :(

Thanks...

I would like to use the amazon.com (and wikipedia.com) search engine and keyword. But since I have installed a non-English version of Firefox (or maybe because the default language of my OS is non-English), I get defaulted to amazon for a different country (and the Wikipedia for that language).

How do I get the US / international version as default?

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Attempted to sign into our Spectrum account using our primary browser, Firefox. The UName and PWord are correct. When Sign In is chosen Spectrum looks like it is trying to sign in but after a few seconds we get the message "We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDID-1060". BTW, I have no problem signing in using Safari, which is not the browser I use very often.

I removed the Spectrum cookies, site data and save logins from Firefox. Then I restarted Firefox (newest version available) and still could not log into Spectrum. I then went to the Firefox Help menu and chose Troubleshooting Information. In the list of three things to do on the right side I did not need to "Give Firefox a tune up", did not "Try Safe Mode" but did "Try clearing the startup cache". This message came up "Restart Firefox to clear startup cache. This will not change your settings or remove extensions you’ve added to Firefox." I chose restart. After the restart I could sign into Spectrum. I signed out of Spectrum and tried again to sign in, I could not do so. I repeated clearing the startup cache and signing in worked again.

Is there an explanation for this issue? Is there a fix?

Lately almost every time I use Firefox, RAM usage goes up to 5 GB, CPU usage goes to 100%, and my PC becomes unusable until I kill Firefox processes and wait 5 - 10 minutes for virtual RAM to be cleared out of disk and disk usage to return to normal. This is much worse since the last update, basically making Firefox unusable. Is anyone working on fixes so Firefox doesn't need 5 GB of RAM to open one simple web article?

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.
