I have been using Firefox for the past 2 years, but only recently have I noticed that Firefox is using 1 GB of RAM! It never increases or decreases and its getting very annoying now since I have barely any RAM to run zoom with (which for some reason takes up the rest of my RAM). I can't even run anything else, and thats annoying me a lot since my fan has to keep running. I can't upgrade my RAM because I use a laptop, and my laptop is under warranty and I can't afford to lose the warranty by upgrading the RAM. Is there any other way to decrease memory usage beside using about:memory and pressing the "minimize memory usage" button? Nothing happens when I press the button.

Hello, since migrating from Chrome to Firefox, I have used the Import Wizard to successfully transfer over my bookmarks and history, but I just can't seem to get my logins/passwords over. The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

how to detect browser back and forward button clicks

I need to know when a visitor to my site is clicking the back or forward button. The reason is I have a "tabstrip" that hilites the currently selected tab and the target document is displayed in an iframe. If I click the back or forward buttons the page is updated with the last or next document in the iframe, but the tabstrip is not updated to reflect the change. Part of this is due to me not knowing how to update the tabstrip, but also because I don't know how to detect the back or forward buttons being clicked.

So I need to know how to detect those button clicks. Also, in researching this, I noticed that there seems to be an idea that you can't distinguish between the forward and back button, only that a button was clicked. That doesn't make sense given that each button has a specific action that is opposite of the other. I need to know the truth about this.

Finally, as much as I use only Firefox myself, I know there will be others who use other browsers. Is there any difference between detecting the back and forward buttons on other browsers compared to Firefox?

One of the pages I need this for is here

Edit 15 March 2022:

I had to fix the link because I had renamed the page when I finished the work on its layout. Also, since I asked this question I have realized another similar and sort-of related issue on a different page: https://wayneca.neocities.org/WebDesi.../TagList.html. The relation is that the back and forward buttons don't correctly reload the page. The difference is that this one is concerning named links.

When you click a link in the table on the left it correctly moves the document in the right table to the point where the matching id anchor is. But when you click the back or forward button the tables do not shift back to where they were on the page as reloaded. The back and forward buttons work fine if the link anchors and id anchors are not in tables.

I have been told about the history functions, but I have found no examples of using it to correct the issue in either of the above cases. Is someone here able to point me to examples of using the history to make a selected link reset back to where it was or reload a page with the last jump point being reset correctly?

Also, why does the named link thing work without tables but not with tables?

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

The Home button is missing from the menu bar and is not an option to add to the menu bar.. There are only the back and forward arrows and the reload buttons.

I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*

  Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
  hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
  • /
  1. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;

}

  1. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: visible !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;

}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

1) Because the built in options are ambiguous I want to flush the temporary Cache storage directory myself, but I can't find it. Where is it? 2) Then I want to relocate it, but here are Mozilla's instructions for how to reset it:

==

To set Firefox's cache folder, first type “about:config” (omit quotes throughout) into the program's address bar and then hit “Enter.” Right-click on any of the displayed properties, select “New” and then select “String” to display the New String dialog box. Enter “browser.cache.disk.parent_directory” into the box and then click “OK” to display the New Value dialog box. Enter the full filepath to the folder you wish to use as the cache folder, and then click “OK.”

==

Doesn't work.

So, after finding the current location and flushing it how do I change it?

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.
