I keep multiple tabs open in multiple windows. Firefox v67 has done a good job saving/restoring all of them each time I launch the program. When the browser informed me of the v68 upgrade, I allowed it to install. At first launch after the upgrade, I was presented with a single fresh FF window with no history and no options to restore previously closed tabs/windows. I fiddled with it a bit... investigating options, closing/re-opening the browser, trying to see if there was anything to recover, including peeking into FF's disk storage, but to no avail. I began opening new windows/tabs to rebuild my normal setup. After a couple of days, from within a non-browser app I launched a URL (like pulling up online help). In response to that system request, a separate instance of FF launched and this instance restored all of my original pre-upgrade windows/tabs! And note these are separate instances (see attached photo of Process Explorer). So for example, I cannot drag a tab from a window in one instance and drop it onto a window in the other instance.

So now the big questions: What is the minimum amount of tab/window loss I can incur by shutting down each instance? In what order should I shut them down? When I re-launch after closing both instances, will FF only restore one set of windows/tabs? And will it be from the most-recently-closed instance?

Something has gone seriously wrong with FireFox in the last couple of months. In addition to pages sometimes taking up to, and more than, 10 minutes to load, extensive web searches for answers turn up only unhelpful responses, some referencing pages from Mozilla dated as far back as 2013.

There are a number of heated discussions about this _SERIOUS_ problem on other forums, often making assumptions about malicious motives such as google intentionally throttling access to google apps when they are accessed using firefox.

Just prior to this post, I opened both FireFox and Chrome and clicked the same bookmark for Google Docs in both browsers as simultaneously as possible ...Docs opened in Chrome in less than 5 seconds, but FireFox took over a minute to open the same page.

I use both Windows and Android versions of FireFox and the problem exists on both platforms.

fwiw, I did reset the FF theme back to default and that helped a bit, but I have to observe that FF is currently unusable in it's current state.

I do not want to switch to chrome as I have been using this product since it was originally released as NETSCAPE decades ago, but I feel like I have no choice.

Mozilla leaders, PLEASE acknowledge that there IS a serious problem and work with loyal and experienced users to determine what the problem is and how to address it.

Again P L E A S E !

ubuntu 16.04, firefox 68.0.1. New instance started after "updated in background" restart just sits there. Add-ons are not started, tabs are not restored as promised. Typing in URL bar and hitting enter does nothing. No response to attempt to open a bookmark. Typing "about:support", no response. I tried removing and re-installing firefox with "sudo apt", no help. Starting firefox without addons, no help. The "about:firefox" display shows no change in version number. A reboot is the only thing that cures this. It has now happened 8 times (8/2, 8/5, 8/9. 8/16 and 4 times earlier). I have about-buildconfig, about-firefox and about-support from 8/2 and 8/5 if they would be helpful.

Over the past few days, I've logged into Firefox on a few new devices - mainly, a Windows partition on my computer, and on a school computer.

In both instances, after logging in, it doesn't give me any indication of being finished - instead it prompts me to "install on another device". Most recently, on this computer, it asked me to send an SMS to my phone to login to Firefox Sync on my phone.

This would be reasonable, except for the fact that I'm already using Firefox on my phone, and have it actively logged in with the account I'm logging in to. When I go to look at my devices on accounts.firefox.com, I have 6 devices listed, including my phone "last seen 7 hours ago" and my main computer "last seen 3 hours ago". It's clear to me that these are active devices, and that I don't need to install on any other devices to get sync working.

The main reason this is annoying is that I don't get any confirmation that I've completed logging in - only a prompt to do something unnecessary. I can work around this by simply ignoring the prompt, but I'm concerned for other less tech-savvy consumers who might be confused, thinking they're still not done when they login to Sync on their second device! Imagine someone logs into their phone first, and then the computer - it'd be pretty confusing to then have the computer ask them to sign in on the phone.

I personally was slightly confused, and had to double check that bookmarks were actually syncing and that I hadn't accidentally made a new account or done something to erase my previously logged-in devices...

I have an HP Probook laptop with a Core-I5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a WD Black NVMe SSD running Windows 10 version 1809. it's about 4 months old and has been running fantastically. I use Firefox as my default browser and have had no problems with it until two days ago, when it suddenly developed a massive delay. it shows up in multiple ways. When opening a webpage, my CPU will jump to about 50% and I cannot scroll for a number of seconds, as many as 10 seconds. Also, highlighting/copying/pasting operations have as much as a 10-second delay before they appear on screen, and I sometimes cannot type in a search box for several seconds or text I do type doesn't appear in a search box for several seconds. I've tried refreshing Firefox and also starting it in safe mode with add-ons disabled, but the same symptoms happen then. I uninstalled and reinstalled and that had no effect. I performed a complete uninstall using Revo uninstaller, rebooted and reinstalled and even then it still has the same symptoms, even though I haven't added any add-ons or extensions. I've run malware scans and disk cleanup with no improvement. I can browse normally with IE or Chrome and they show none of these symptoms, but I prefer Firefox. Please help me determine what suddenly changed on July 20th or 21st, 2019. I've used Firefox for years and never had a problem like this, and no amount of refreshing/reinstalling/rebooting/disabling add-ons or extensions seems to have any effect. If it comes down to a complete format/reinstall of Windows, I'll likely just use a different browser but I'd really like to get Firefox working again.

Not a problem with Chrome, and Firefox on my non administative "Web Surfer" account doesn't have this problem. These are major concerns, but besides these, pages load very slowly. My internet speed is fast (16 MB/sec down, 2MB/sec up). Ookla speed test within FF fails with "latency error" but runs fine in Chrome. Stand alone app stops, gives no results.

My Firefox is configured to block third-party cookies. After a Firefox update (from/to which versions I don't remember as I don't pay attention to this), my Evernote extension has stopped working. At first I thought it was an extension problem, but after installing the OneDrive extension, it gave me a message about the extension requiring permission for third-party cookies. I tried to find a way to allow some third-party cookies or to allow some extensions to access them, but there's almost no information on this except some suggestions on using still another extension to manage cookies (which I don't want to try).

Is there a way to manage granular permissions for third-party cookies for some sites or some extensions?

Thanks!
