After updating to version 94.0b9, the program began to slow down terribly. This is especially pronounced on YouTube: you select a search, enter a request, open two or three tabs from the proposed one with a possibly useful video ... That's it! You can go to a cafe for coffee and rolls. It became impossible to use the browser.

How to roll back to the previous version of the program?

Today Firefox opened with my account disconnected. No passwords. I reset my account password but still no passwords. The logins file shows a .corrupt extension. I rename this and nothing happens. Every time I re-open FF (v 93.0) the .corrupt is added and I can't get to my passwords. I have hundreds.

I've seen many post about not being able to open dropdown menu in firefox and i was unaware of this problem when creating new web page designs nevertheless, i am now experiencing this problem myself on mobile

most post about not being able to open dropdown menu simply give advice on options i can take on my browser to make it work. But that does not help me as far as clients who come to view my site, meaning my concern is that he end viewer will not see or be able to use the dropdown menus

the dropdown menu does work on firefox on regular computer browser the problem is when viewing the page on mobile on firefox

so to be clear when viewing webpage on regular computer browser using firefox the dropdown menu works when viewing webpage on a mobile using firefox the dropdown menu DOES NOT work

so is there anything i can do as the designer of the webpage to fix my webpage so that it proper displays to the end client on their mobile phone?

here is the page https://www.spellswork7.com/spells.html

any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

Hi,

I keep getting the "Secure Connection Failed" error message on Google websites (search engine, Gmail, Agenda, Meet, etc.). Usually I can first access the website fine for while, but after a few minutes I get a "you're offline" popup and refreshing the page gives the error. Sometimes I get the error right away.

I've seen many others ask that question, and I've tried this: - enable/disable ocsp stapling - enable/disable HTTP3 - empty the cache

Some other facts : - There is no additional info on the error page (it's not one of the "SSL version unsupported" or "Add an exception" pages) - I'm on Windows, with the latest Firefox version (although this problem has been going on for a while) - The only antivirus is Windows Defender - I'm not behind a proxy or VPN - This happens at work, and at least 3 of my colleagues have the issue - It sometimes happens on non-Google websites, but very rarely - Firefox for Android works fine on my phone on the same WiFi network

I appreciate any help in resolving this, it's getting to the point where I have to use Chrome to work.

Cheers,

Hi there

Whenever I use the open/save dialog all the active "Finder extensions" spawn a child process even if they already have one running. I'm not sure this is a Firefox bug or a macos (api) bug. I have the Betterzip and Graphicconverter Extensions active. This seems to have started with version 92 and/or 93. In the beginning everything seems alright, but after a while the finder/system begins to beachball for 20-30 seconds. When I then try to quit firefox the whole system becomes unresponsive and I have to power-off with the switch.

This is with the latest macos 11.6 and FF 93.

Kind regards,

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

Just trying to convert to Linux from windows (cinnamon 20.2) using the same display (3840 x 2160) Firefox on Linux scrollbars are a lot narrower than on windows and menu bar icons are too small. I cannot find any settings to enlarge these on Firefox on linux.

I estimate that the windows scroll bar is 300% wider than in Linux (Using screen ruler Linux scroll bars are 6 pixels and bitwarden icon is 12 pixels)

The usability of Firefox is questionable for me like this so I really hope there is a setting to make using Firefox a comfortable experience ( I have default font set to 20 and default zoom to 150% )

I had to put in a new hard-drive into my computer that I previously was running Firefox browser on so I downloaded the Firefox back on after the new hard-drive was done. Before on my old hard-drive when I click Firefox browser and it came on, it had a ribbon across the top of the screen underneath the back arrow, forward arrow, and search URL that I used the most of in my favorites (I think it showed across the screen about 10 of my bookmarks) to click on instead of going into all my bookmarks to get. How can I put my most used bookmarks across the top of screen now instead of just clicking the "star" that show ALL my bookmarks and I have to go down to whichever one I want to use and boy do I have a bunch of bookmarks even thou they are in alphabet order? I hope someone can tell me how to do this!

I have hit what appears to be a "YouTube TV" (vs YouTube) buffering problem. It happens only with Firefox on my PCs. After a few seconds to a minute of playing a TV program or movie, the video/audio stops with a spinning arrow. If I previously had turned on "stats for nerds" to monitor this, I can see when network activity stops and the buffer then eventually gets exhausted.

This does NOT happen when running YouTube TV on my TVs or on my iPhone. Probably more significant, it does NOT happen with YouTube TV under either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome on these PCs. If I run Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, i.e., no add-ons, extensions, etc., the problem still exists, so it is not just some rogue add-on, but is related to Firefox itself. The problem appears to be only for "YouTube TV" on Firefox since, for example, videos played from YouTube (vs "YouTube TV") do not have the problem under Firefox.

I tried rebooting my router as well as the PCs. The problem still existed. The PCs are high speed and the internet connection is fiber optic. One of the PCs is connected by Ethernet; the other is wireless. Download/upload speeds are over 900 Mbps on the Ethernet PC. I have not seen slow network indications on anything except this "YouTube TV" with Firefox mixture. Hardware does not seem to be the issue.

Apparently the problem is software. I also tried temporarily disabling my antivirus/firewall software. No change. I'm running Windows 10 version 21H1 and Firefox 88.0.1. I'm new to YouTube TV; although most of my viewing with it has been done on TVs, I don't recall seeing this problem in my PC tests a month or so ago.

FF 93.0 64-bit - Windows 10

When I booted up the system and ran FF the first time for the day, its window opened, and it even asked for the primary password. After that, nothing I typed in the URL box came out. I could open new tabs but not able to switch to them. All Chromium-based browsers and Edge in the same system worked fine.

I did the following trying to fix the problem: I restarted Win10 and ran FF93. Same problem. I restarted using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I reinstalled using the complete package. Same problem. I installed using FF92 and FF91. Same problem. I refreshed FF93 using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I used Win10 Safe Mode to run FF93. It worked. I uninstalled FF93, removed as much as I could all traces of FF and Mozilla in the Win registry, and reinstalled FF93. Same problem.

In the end, I had to use Win10 Recovery and revert to an earlier date to fix it.

The first incident happened about two weeks ago. It happened again this morning. My use of PC has been routine for years, I would say for more than a decade, or at least in the last five years. No extraordinary applications or routines.

BTW, I haven't updated my Win10 in years, because doing so often times gave me new mysterious issues to troubleshoot, courtesy of MS. You should very well know Win updates produce issues, and the bug fixes following them produce even more. The annoying thing is I would research on the issues and find out later (sometimes days) that the updates were the culprits.

This is the second time it happened to my FF93, and I feel I have to report this to get some idea about why this is happening (only to me?) and how to fix or prevent it without having to go into Recovery (again?).

Hi, I have an hp-14dk0501AU with Ryzen 5 3500U and 8gb Ram and Windows 11.

I just have installed Firefox but the app keeps on crashing. It was even crashing during the first run. It doesn't show any messages just a transparent frame after which it automatically closes. I tried every thing i.e flushed my dns , checked for virus, Turned of internet security software and all other prescribed in the official website as well as in various youtube videos. I even have reset my pc but the problem persist. I have a similar problem with opera too but chrome and brave work just fine. I tried opening it in safe mode too but it also crashes without any messages.
