Hello,

Both Firefox dev and standard are having a problem where if i leave my browser open for some time the CPU usage goes up and it will use all 32GB of my memory until it crashes my PC, this is a content thing.

I have tried clean uninstalling both and it has fixed nothing it has gotten so bad that i need to restart firefox every 30 minutes or so I might need to swap over to an other browser at this point.

I'm using add on Selenium IDE for a project that I'm working on for class.

And I need to be able to "enable experimental features" under a options tab.

However, with the latest version of Selenium IDE, the options tab doesn't exist.

So two questions :

- how can I still "enable experimental features"?

and if that is not possible with the latest version

- how can I get a old version of Selenium IDE? I need version 2.9.1. I tried looking for it but I couldn't find it.

After Firefox updated to 68.0 the other day, I have found myself being plagued by it making multiple processes in the Task Manager yet again. I have already tried the following:

1) Already tried about:config to change browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2/browser.tabs.remote.autostart from true to false. It is set, but absolutely nothing has changed.

2) I have tried going into Options>Performance and limiting the Content Process Limit to 1 instead of 4. The setting was saved, and yet it has not changed a thing.

3) Ending these processes only results in my tabs crashing, and reloading them only adds another Firefox process.

But as it turns out here: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/05/17/going-forward-multi-process-cant-be-turned-off-anymore-in-firefox/ Firefox has removed the option to turn this off entirely after updating.

My computer can't handle having more than 1 Firefox process open and I want to disable multiple processes, otherwise everything will lag horribly. Is there any way I can permanently disable the multiple processes?

I would like to make a bookmark file with all the tabs in all the open windows, organised by window. The final goal is to be able to open all Firefox windows with all their respective tabs in another browser, like Vivaldi; alternatively, to time stamp various such bookmark files, and open all the window with all their tabs I had open in Firefox, say, 8 months ago. Please have a look at the screenshot attached: it seems that the menu button Bookmarks → Bookmarks All Tabs makes bookmarks only of the tabs of the upper-most window. Thank you for any help.

3. Steps tried: Had googled left right center but nothing of help. Some articles that seem close, tried but failed: 3a. disable multi-process tabs doesn't help :

          browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false 
          browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false  (can't find this part though, only the above line)

3b. Disable hardware acceleration - doesn't help.

3c. There is no extension nor theme added, it's a newly installed FF and OS.

4. What works: safe mode. All the sites listed above are able to load in safe mode.

5. There is no crash report? Is it because it is a tab crash rather than a full crash?


Please help ...

Today, I was designing a new webpage. It uses fonts like Open Sans etc (directly embedded via css, not via Google Fonts). After the update to 68.0 (from 67.0.4) the fonts aren't shown any more and Arial is used for everything. It only happens when opened the html-files locally. If you upload the same files to a webserver, everything works fine. With 67.0.4 (and all previous versions) the website works fine both ways. OS is Windows 10, 64 bit, Professional.

I recently reinstalled my Windows and also got a Firefox again with no previous data like bookmarks and all and i have noticed this small space between the top of the tab and the top of the screen.

In my screenshot you can see that i made a a red line over the line where the tab actually ends, everything above that is useless. And in my other screenshot i pressed Alt to bring the options and all up just to that you can see the empty space better.

Is this how it is and i may have missed an update on my previous Windows install? Can i remove it?

Thank you.

Hi, guys.

Does anyone here understand a little about the Firefox database? I mean local bank, SQL-Lite's standard. I just want to merge the History of several different profiles into a single database. The "places.sqlite" file located at root folder of each profile should store this history. How to add all records into a single bank? If there are any duplicates, what is the SQL command to remove them?

I have also installed SQLiteBrowser. What I need is familiarity with handling data bank records.

Putting it better, I don't intend to overwrite files in folders. All files in the profile folders will be intact. I do not want to open these tables in Firefox. It could even be after add everything, but that is not the intention. I just wanted to merge all history and favorites into one bank and remove any duplicates. For that, I need to know the SQL commands to handle these files properly, with "append", "purge", "index", etc. By not mastering SQL, I'm looking for someone who understands more than me to give me the way.

I am not quite sure, but it seems that the "favicons.sqlite" file should also be involved in the manipulations. I saw that there are several tables of each other. I would have to write SQL commands to split the banks by month.

Any idea?


Attached to this question, I submit the table structure of "places.sqlite" and "favicons.sqlite":

When I attempt to make a payment using PayPal from within Firefox, it opens the PayPal popup, I insert my PayPal login email address, and then the PayPal window goes blank. If I move the PayPal window I see a message from PayPal asking if I'm having trouble opening their window, and suggesting I click 'Continue'. After doing this a couple of times, I get dumped back to where I was, on the merchant website offering me ways of paying, including of course PayPal. I've tried searching through past posts, but they all refer to what's obviously a previous version of FireFox - eg suggesting I click on an Advanced tab that isn't there
