I thought I could turn off my ad blocker just for the Washington Post, but I discovered upon searching that I don't have an ad blocker installed. So why does the page freeze up when the ad at the side of my screen changes? This doesn't seem to happen on any of the other sites I use.

Last time I tried backing up my bookmarks, they were saved in a file that was basically a list, a list that can't be imported back to Firefox bookmarks, but just a list. I would like to know if there's a way to actually export and import bookmarks with one click, rather than me having to add 200 pages from the list manually. When I tried importing the file, the list ended up somewhere random and not where bookmarks are

Very often, recently, I can't communicate with an organization via their form on the WWW internet. After minutes of frustration, I change to a Chrome or Safari browser on my Mac, and it works just fine.

One of the problems is when filling out a form, Firefox says over and over there is an error. Safari takes that same data just fine, no error.

There are others, but I'll have to wait until Firefox fails again since it's not that easy to reproduce what happened days or weeks ago!

Firefox is my default browser. Up until a few months ago, if I clicked a link in an Outlook email, it took me to Firefox and opened the site. Now it takes me to Microsoft Edge.

At the same time, another problem arose, albeit minor. When I am using Firefox and attempt to email a link, there is a message, "Navigation failed" and a blank screen appears. This is not a big problem, since when I open Outlook the email is waiting to be sent. But this too smacks of something Microsoft is doing to sabotage the competition.

Hi dear Community!

As of recent, my AntiVirus software is flagging Firefox.exe (Full path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe) as a vulnerable application. I have been using firefox for years (Because I love it, you guys are heroes) and i have been using Kaspersky for years. Firefox has only been flagged as of recent.........

I hope someone knows why, has this too or can calm my paranoia

Some Additional information:

Have you clicked any suspicious links? No i have not. The links i have visited were all https, checked and acknowledged by Kaspersky and i can say with full certainty that the sites were legit

Have i downloaded any files as of recent? Yes, but from reputable sources and always checked using Hashes and validating using KSN (Kaspersky security network).

(For the Mods, im sorry for previously posting this in the wrong forum.)

firefox is using so much memory that it is causing lag and loading problems.

i know that the root of my problem is that i have an unholy amount of tabs open all the times but if i go into the process manager for firefox i can see that the memory problem is actually usually only 1 or 2 tabs that are using over 1GB of memory. this has only been a problem in the last few weeks so i am not sure if something has changed on the firefox side of things.

I looked into tab unloading and this seems like it would solve my problems. however the unloading process only happens automatically when the total amount of memory that firefox is using approaches the maximum amount of memory you system has available. with 32GB of ram and firefox reaching not even 16GB when completely stretched the automatic process will likely never hapen. yet firefox is still using enough memory that it is causing itself problems.

i dont really want to have to unload my tabs all the time to keep firefox's memory in check. is there anyway to lower the amount of memory that causes firefox to automatically unload tabs? i have seen extensions that say they will sleep tabs that are not being used. however they all seem to just sleep tabs that are not currently in use rather than sleeping tabs that have not been used that day.

i feel like the tab uploader is such a good feature in firefox that i would love to be able to use it to solve my problems. however i am not sure how to make this happen in the laziest way possible.

I use 1 Firefox account on 3 devices (2 PCs and a smartphone). On the first PC, the number of synchronized passwords is 1126. On the second PC - 135 (similar on a smartphone).

I pressed the "Synchronize" button many times, everything works, new tabs appear, but there are no passwords. What to do? I'm afraid that if I log out of my account on the first PC, I will lose all access forever.

Vimeo "manage videos" page displays momentarily with controls below the embedded video, as it should, while loading, then it switches over to show the title of the video, making it impossible to change settings. This behavior repeats if I refresh the page. It still occurs after clearing the cache. It does not occur in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

I do not know how I got there, but I somehow got into a situation where I could push a button 'Refresh', or in Dutch 'Opfrissen'. Firefox then started to remove settings and extensions. Which is all well documented if you know it. But the user interface is just crap here. Especially in Dutch. Because 'opfrissen' is something that sounds totally innocent in my native language. I at most expected it to remove some cache memory. The last thing I expect pushing a button with that name is that it does what it did, without any warning! PLEASE change that. And please do not translate it with 'opfrissen', just explicitly say: Go back to standard configuration and remove extensions. I am not dumb that I could not understand what that should do. Opfrissen.... Pfff, please change at least the translation!

And I got really angry when it happened!

"https://www.office.com/?trysignin=0"

2. if I insist in Trying I get in a loop and i get the error message "AADSTS50196 authentication error,"

3. I have tried to clean Cookies cash. The only difference now is that i do not get in that indefinite loop but i have to reenter the sign in credentials and again reach the log in screen.

4. I have entered the office.com, Microsoft.com, hotmail.com as trusted sites but problem same

5. No issues in that particular Surface pro to sign in Microsoft 365 site via edge

6. No issues to sign in Microsoft 365 in my other computers via Mozila. It happens to that particular surface new installation

I am one among many who keep a lot of windows open for reference. When my compootie shuts down inadvertantly I am avle to use "Restore Session" to get these back. But occasionally the system shuts down and I am unable to restore anything, and this can cost me tens of hours os referencing, and untold hours of productivity.

Could you save the open windows in an easily accessible file that we could use to restore previous sessions? This would save a lot of us considerable grief.

Tomorrow I will help a friend update their unsupported Linux OS to the most current version of the OS. The present version of Firefox is 88. Firefox could not update I assume because of the age of the OS.

My concern is porting everything correctly from the old to the new version of Firefox. If I setup sync, will it restore his passwords and add-ons in addition to his bookmarks?

If not is there a good way to do it?

I suspect that a recent Microsoft update changed the default browser on my computer from Firefox to Microsoft Edge so everything now opens in Edge instead of Firefox.

When I checked in Firefox Settings I saw that Firefox was supposedly still the default browser. I hoped that by re-selecting Firefox as the default it would take things back to the way I liked them (Firefox as default), but I'm still stuck with everything opening in Edge and am very unhappy about that. I like the greater privacy of using Firefox, and I prefer the way it works.

How can I disable or completely get rid of Edge and get back to Firefox as default browser? I don't like being spied on, and I don't like having my choices disabled and being forced to do something I didn't choose.

If someone can help I would appreciate it greatly but in replying, please bear in mind that I'm a 76-year-old retired carpenter more familiar with hammers than with computers.
