I had Java working with a JRE using Java SE7 or SE8. I just let Java install an update; now no valid JRE is installed to let my Java applications using Java to run. How do get a version of Java that will work with the Firefox browser on Windows 10.

Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

I am using a video conferencing site called "whereby.com". It works as expected for everything but screen sharing.

When attempting to share my screen, Firefox asks me if I'd like to allow "whereby.com" to see my screen (see attached screenshot). When clicking "Allow", I see the message in the second attached screenshot.

Firefox version - 73.0.1 Mac OS version - 10.15.3

The same error message appears regardless which of the options I select in the window where Firefox asks which window or screen to share.

Whereby doesn't have any info on this, and no search I've run has turned up anything that might give more info on the cause of, or possible solution to, the error saying screensharing could not start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if there's anything more I need to share to help troubleshoot this.

Thanks, Dan

I've had this problem since Windows 10 updates from November 2019? When I boot up first thing in the morning and open Firefox I am connected to the net with my ISP but Firefox just hangs and in the bottom left corner says Looking up whatever I've clicked on say Gmail? Nothing happens. If I leave it a while say 2 or 3 minutes I am connected to Gmail and can read my emails. When I click on the link to say Facebook it just hangs again? It may or may not connect. When I open Google Chrome or Microsoft edge I am immediately connected to websites with no problem. I have researched this problem, switched off Microsoft Firewall, and added Firefox to my list in Malwarebytes Premium. It seems to run okay for a few day6s and then the problem returns? Everything okay this morning, all good. Closed Firefox, went had some lunch and when I opened again it refused to connect me to the net, but Google chrome and Edge does? I'm at my wits end now. It's clearly not a internet connection problem else I wouldn't be able to use Chrome or edge? This seems to be something in Firefox that is cutting me off. As I say if I click on a website within a minute or two it will connect me but only that site. Has anyone any idea what might be causing this. All Windows 10 and Malwarebytes software up to date as is Firefox, google chrome and edge. Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

This happened after Firefox updated to v73. When I go into a 123 Flash chat room (chat-avenue.com), the screen will frequently white out; the entire screen goes white. Sometimes it will come back to normal after a few seconds; other times I need to close/open or switch tabs, and other times, the Flash tab will crash back to the main (non Flash) page of that site . v72 and earlier didn't have this problem. Other tabs are not affected.

If there isn't a way to go back to v.72 is there any workaround until this gets fixed? Thanks.

For several days now I've been having issues with Firefox. It is very slow to start up, freezes for 10 seconds when a new tab opens, takes another 10 seconds to begin loading the new tab after unfreezing, and will not play YouTube videos (tries loading but always gives "error has occurred" message). I have tried reinstalling Firefox twice and it has not changed anything. I've also turned off advanced performance settings. Can someone help?

H A Forum I use extensively suddenly started showing content layed out in a sort of linear fashion where everything was set onto a new line. I have used this forum for more than 18 years and this is the first time this has happened, The site is a respected one, and a search for 'MSDN Forum' would provide a link(s) to my problem site. After a LOT of work trying to find what has happened has resulted in my finding that scripts and CSS seem to be skipped from being loaded by Firefox reporting the error message I mention in the title. These errors are MANY thoughout the incoming data. I subsequently tried to pursue Mozilla articles on Mixed Content Blocking, which seems to say Ishould have an option to 'disable' Firefox security with respect to the above via clicking on the 'sheild' icon and follow through to where there is supposed to be am option to 'stop/disble' - but there is no such option here so I can't check if that option is a cause of my issue. This issue is very severe as it disable ALL of the needed buttons - such as Reply, Quote and Post New Question - for a Forum, that is indeed severe! Now, I don't know if this whole issue is a fault with either Microsoft (who seem to be serving faulty data, or, Firefox for being overly coseting) I attach an image showing a portion of the errors (they extend throughout the entire list). Patricularly, the line at the top saying the Style Sheet could not be loaded summarizes the whole issue. Is there any other way I can get to disable Firefox being overly protective - I do know how to use the About:Config etc., but lack the ability to find anything relevant to this issue in any of the content there.

A further snippet of information: amongst other things, I reinstalled Window 10 and used Edge immediately after install had completed - same issues (suggesting that either both browsers are overly protective, or that the issues stem from Microsoft). I have tried most/all of the things likely to be suggested here suxh as using Safe Mode, no Extensions etc.

To save readers from becoming bored with this long essay, I'll stop here - if further info needed, just ask.

I can't find a way to change the scrollbar color in firefox 73. The gery on grey scrollbar is very annoying because it's so hard to see. I tried to create chrome folder and tried to add various codes to userChrome. I also tried this: https://gist.github.com/Sporif/db6b3440fba0b1bcf5477afacf93f875 but it seems to not work.

On some pages the scrollbar color is fine, but on most pages it is the annoying grey on grey. I also tried disabling layout.css.scrollbar-color.enabled in about:config without any effects.

Hi all! I need help getting my Firefox running again. Today it crashed (due to lack of available RAM), I had to shut it down in the task manager. When I restarted the browser, it couldn't load any content anymore. That means the upper control bars of the browser window work as usual, the lower part of the window stays completely blank.

I can't load any websites, local servers or routers, no local content such as images, or offline htmls, nor internal pages such as about:config.

What I tried so far:

- disabeling hardware acceleration

- disabeling proxy settings

- starting firefox in safe mode

- refreshing firefox

- reinstalling firefox (73.0)

- reinstall with profile reset

- reinstall with manual deleting Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

...maybe even more.

Nothing helped.

Interestingly, even firefox portable shows the same behavior now, though at least one page was able to load after 15 minutes or so. I also noticed that the firefox.exe is still active in the taskmanager after I close the browser (under user tab, not under processes) - I have no idea if this has to do with the problem.

I would really appreciate any help! Thanks! Jay.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers seems to suggests that it's possible to hide all tabs in certain containers, but does not explain how to do that.

"Hide and Show: Assume you use your browser for both Work and Personal tasks. When you come home at the end of the day, you don’t want to be thinking about “Work” anymore, but your browser is full of Work tabs. You can “Hide” your Work tabs and proceed with your Personal tasks. Then the next day, when you are back at work, you can “Hide” your Personal tabs and “Show” your Work tabs."

On an aside, I'm also getting pretty confused between collections (mobile), containers (desktop), sessions, tab groups, etc... they all seem to have overlapping but different functionality.
