Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

Google.com is my homepage in Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) It takes forever to load. I can go load Chrome where Google is also my homepage, come back to Firefox and still be waiting for Google to load.

When I login to gmail, I type my password and wait and wait and wait and then I get sent back to the login page and have to type my password again.

I need to speed this up. I prefer Firefox over Chrome, but Chrome is faster to use.

On typically 90% of occasions, when try to upload photographs to my Flickr account, I get a message 'file timed out' and 'Go Back and Fix Errors'. The file (photography) is typically about 11 MB, in size!

This problem has never occurred, when using other browsers, such as 'MS Explorer', 'MS Edge', or 'Goggle Chrome'!

Appreciate your advice

OS X Mojave (full release) - FF freezes if trying to rename a file to save

Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) OS X Mojave - 10.14 - live public full release (i.e. not the Beta) MacBook Pro, with menu bar

Example: Using Google, go to Images tab. Right click on an image and select "Save image as". If you click on the file name, as you want to change the name, FF freezes.

Not only does it freeze but right clicking on the icon in the Dock only shows "Quit" (not Force quit) and that does nothing. Furthermore, it locks you out from being able to use the Apple symbol (top left) to get to "Force quit" that way. Only solution I have found so far is a forced reboot (i.e. power off/on).

I can reproduce this every time.

If anyone wants more info just let me know what you want to know. I suspect that, given Mojave has only been live a few hours, that a lot more people might run into this in the coming days.

My Firefox on my new Mac keeps crashing every time I try to attach a PDF file to an email or upload a photo to Facebook. Every time, whenever I try to use the uploader. Not a Mac problem.

I can't submit a crash report because there are no crash reports to produce. I don't want to have to go back to Chrome but I guess I might have to.

I am using a PC, Windows 10. I have the latest version of Firefox installed, ie V 62.0.2 (x64 en-US) from Sep 21, 2018. The Mozilla Maintenance Service (MMS) version installed on my PC is V 55.0.3 from Jun 28, 2018. My review and reading of various posts on this site indicates the MMS version should be the same number as the Firefox version. How do I update MMS to 62.0.2? Thank you.

So I am not a coder for anything special. I just write basic HTML for formatting on Deviantart. I'm having an issue where Firefox automatically closes my HTML tags without me wanting it to.

EXAMPLE:
<*blockquote>text
more text
more text
<*/blockquote>

DOES NOT WORK. Firefox automatically changes it to the following:

<*blockquote>text<*/blockquote>
more text
more text

I need to know how to disable this if possible, otherwise I have to switch browsers because this is a very tedious issue for me when I'm trying to write simple HTML code.

Hi, whenever I restart firefox only three windows will be restored from the previous session, even if there were more windows open. The tabs themselves are all restored just fine, it's only the number of windows that's limited to three.

This issue started occuring after I upgraded to "firefox quantum" due to the tabmix plus addon (which I used as a session manager) no longer being available.

Is there any way to make firefox restore ALL previous windows that were open during the previous session?

When I attempted to access certain sites, I received the attached loading page instead-from that page but also from other attempted sites. I was told that I should edit my https settings in my browser to solve the issue. The exact quote being 'set your privacy settings to https'. Unfortunately, even though I was refered to using Firefox, I still cannot find what this setting is supposed to refer to. Can anyone help please? It says to contact the website owners but I can't actually contact them without getting on the site to figure out their contacts first >_>
