I much prefer Firefox to Chrome and others but whenever I use the google search function in the search bar, ALL the results seem to be USA-based. 100% useless for me, an English-speaking European living between France and England. What do I need to do to my Firefox browser to tell it once and for all that I am not American and nor am I interested in American content?!? TIA KB

Good evening. I'm seeking some help with an issue I'm having with Firefox.

As stated above, Firefox insta-crashes on startup. Hangs on opening in troubleshoot mode, then crashes after another 20 seconds and asks me to submit a report.

I believe this may have to do with the amount of tabs I had open when last using the browser. This morning I opened it up with about 7.8k tabs, and then closed it after adding another hundred. After trying to open the browser again, that's when the issues started. Until that point, the browser had been responsive and stable.

I've tried doing fresh installs of the browser and inserting the old data from the old profile, restoring to yesterday, and even trying without internet connection.

I have a Ryzen 5600X and 32GB of RAM, so I do not believe system resources are an issue.

Attached are some images. If any help could be provided, that'd be much appreciated.

As of this morning, for some reason, certain websites present, random garbled text where normal text should be. This occurs on some sites and not on others. My second computer, running an earlier Mac OS, is working just fine, and other browsers don't have this problem.

Hoping someone can help. A screenshot from Wikipedia is attached.

I've started noticing most of the time now that shutting down or restarting my Arch Linux system likes to take an extra couple minutes. When checking journal logs I find some lines indicating Firefox failing to stop. More specifically, these few lines below

What might I be able to do to troubleshoot this problem?

I am not currently at the system in question, however I will try to share its troubleshooting data as soon as I can. It was installed via pacman and the system uses Gnome as its desktop environment.

I am often frustrated to find that with some sites I can see the Save this login? prompt, and I click to save it, only to find later that the website name and password do get saved, but the username/account name is NOT saved.

I can see this saved login with a search by website name, and it will display this with the text "no username" in parentheses in the username field. And I can edit it to add the username manually, to make it more useful. This does not happen with all websites...

This has been true for a couple of years, so I don't know when I first saw this.

I see a few archived posts about this or similar problems but they are not too helpful. I prefer NOT to install add-ons to fix basic functions, or to download and run javascript to modify things that are not available as a user setting, to be lost when new versions come along.

Is this a Firefox bug?

Is there a way to correct this?

In Firefox 107.0.1 64-bit (Windows 10)

When looking at the console, the response tab no longer shows rendered HTML code - the response is blank.

Only if I select "Raw" over on the right do I see anything - only code.

Is this new behaviour from Firefox, or have I inadvertently changed an option?

The only way to now see the rendered page is through the "Network" tab.

Please see images.

The minimum tab width build into Firefox is 50. I'm used to much lower from Chrome, and would like it to be lower. I have many tabs open at the same time, and being able to see them all is what I'm used to. Instead of having to scroll for long time, it's really annoying! I saw a post that there used to be an extension which let you do this, but it stopped working with an older version of Firefox. Any help is greatly appreciated. :) Have a great day!

My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

While doing some virus discovery tests with Windows Defender and other AV products I realized that with Firefox files are not scanned when download finishes. With Chrome and Edge the Windows Defender immediately checks and blocks malicious files. Not so with Firefox. Then the file is only checked and blocked when opened.

After some research I found that in the past there was an Option `browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone` but this seems no longer available. Under Security software in about:support Windows Defender seems to be correctly set.

Is there a way to have files immediately checked by the AV after download in Firefox completes?

Firefox browser does not function when logged into AD domain. It works fine if using local account. This was not an issue until recently (perhaps a month). FW settings are open and websites are functional on other browsers, but after an Windows Security Update Firefox will not load any pages. It will not even open Settings tab. No bookmarks work.

I have uninstalled and tried to reinstall, and the windows update or the package install crash before install initiates. Logged into laptop local and was able to install, but when using domain account the problem reoccurs. Note, browser was functional until windows patch and indicators are of some .NET framework corruption.
