Every time I use twitter, firefox ends up freezing and crashing. Sometimes the crash happens after I close it, of its own accord, and even surprisingly have firefox spontaneously close without the crash reporter opening at all. I have enough spare memory to run firefox.

Reddit comments textbox shows duplicate text after pasteing When creating a comment (new or reply), the input textbox shows duplicate text. So what ever is pasted, it appears twice. If I post the comment anyway, only one copy of the text appears in the posted comment. It only seems to happen if I paste more than one line of text so maybe the CRLF at the end of line one has something to do with it. See attached image.

I tried the same operation with Chrome, and it does not have this duplicate text problem. So I'm guessing it some problem with the input textbox implementation in firefox.

Is this a known problem? Anyone else seeing this?

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Error message: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to zeist.raadsinformatie.nl. Peer received a valid certificate, but access was denied. Error code: SSL_ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED_ALERT The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

But other browsers are okay with this trustworthy site. How can I change settings in FF to be able to connect to zeist.raadsinformatie.nl?

I have found on several occasions this year that forms I've completed can't be submitted via Firefox - noticeably forms for financial services, but not exclusively, I'm usually allowed to fill in the form but I get some sort of error when I submit. These are usually vague like 'opps, something went wrong' and several attempts will not work. However, these work smoothly on Chrome or Edge.

The first time this happened there was actual php code and variables appearing in some fields and I gave the company a pretty hard time for not making sure their stuff worked on FireFox, but I feel a bit of an old meanie for doing that now I've seen how regularly I get submission problems.

Anyone come across this and anyone found a fix?

I seem to be having issues with bookmarks randomly appearing on my toolbar. I am on a new installation and know it is not due to any malware. It's beginning to get annoying to have to consistently delete bookmarks that I did not want. My assumption right now is that I am somehow dragging a link onto the bookmarks toolbar as anything else that adds bookmarks is adding at the end, where these bookmarks are showing up in the middle, plus any other option to add bookmarks shows a popup box. Oddly enough it can sometimes be multiples of the same webpage I visted and I don't remember ever touching the address bar. Is there another way firefox can add bookmarks in the middle of the toolbar? Also is there a way I can "Lock" the toolbar, not allowing any more bookmarks to be added unless I unlock it? Recently made the switch from chrome and this is the only real issue I have.

Hello,

When I visit any website, normally I would expect to be stored in crt+H (history) TAB. Yet, after visiting the website, it does not show up there.

Only after a few hours the visited website will show up in the history tab.

PS: This happens on the same device, the sync option between them works fine. After the few hours have passed and the websites have shown in the original computer, they will instantly sync across all other devices. And yes, I have checked the setting from top to bottom.

Any ideas how to deal with this or am I the only one with this problem?

This only happens when I enable my adblocker, AdBlocker Ultimate. This is new behavior and was not occurring at the beginning of the week at least.

Reproduce: 1) Ensure adblocker is enabled 2) Select a playlist on youtube 3) Play first video 4) Select firefox's picture in picture icon 5) Wait for first video to end 6) Observe picture in picture closing when next video in playlist plays

This did not occur before and I was able to view youtube playlists in picture in picture without issue. Disabling adblocker seems to correct it but this is not a solution I'm willing to go with.

I can use other browsers without images being blocked in yahoo mail but when I try and send an attachment as an image in the body of email instead of showing image it just shows text "inline image".

When I use other browsers and send an attachment as a image in the body of the email it shows the image without any problems.

When I receive an email with scanned images instead of seeing the image it shows text "scanned image".

The problem started in version 88.0 and continues in 88.0.1
