I suppose I need two profiles, one for Firefox, one for Waterfox. What is the best way to accomplish this without creating a mess. I have installed both, and want to be able to use both, simultaneously if possible.

I did find the article on Using the profile manager to create.... at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

but it's not enough to move forward confidently. Right now, the default seems to be firefox. attempts to load waterfox load firefox.

Thank you. BTW, I have all my plugins on "Ask first". Incredible change in speed, and no more 'hang's' and crashes.

This started over a week ago. I try to link to a webpage (either from a link on another page, a bookmark or an email) and I can end up waiting for over a minute for the page to load. I have checked my PC's Internet speed (excellent), malware and viruses (none), firewall issues (none - in fact, the problem persists even with the firewall completely disabled), I've even upgraded my modem (no change). The problem affects Firefox and also Chrome and IE. It does *not*, however, affect my laptop or notebook. I'm at wits end at this point and any other ideas to fix this would be appreciated.

It really seems like some kind of memory leak... always happens, it seems related to videos/ youtube, I have currently nearly 600 tabs open, but I read on a forum a guy have 1000 tabs and it runs smooth, so something is really wrong.. I got a 6600k overclocked at 4.5ghz and 16ghb of ram@3200 so it's not the hardware, also I'm running chrome in the same time, and even when my CPU reaches nearly 100% chrome runs smooth.. I have to close it and reopen it every time it's so annoying.

Would be nice to get some help.. I also tryed to disable all extensions, still had the same problem, right now I disabled kaspersky for the browser, it's not helping, something is really wrong with firefox.. I tryed to do a refresh.. HELL.. I even tryed to reinstall it !! and still got the same problem..

At this point if I can't figure this out soon I will be using stricly chrome..but I like firefox better, and all my shortcuts and bookmarks are there also

Windows 10, Firefox 66.0.1 crashes and does not shut down when closed, with these 2 error messages: 1) Mozilla Crash Reporter (all boxes are checked)

When browser is reopened another error message appears: 2) Close Firefox: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.

This appears even after a long delay before restarting Firefox. I have gone through the suggested list of fixes, with no effect.

when I try to download a file, from a web link, with firefox, I see a flashing of the icons on the desktop wallpaper and then firefox hangs until I click on the application windows and appears the "not responding" message on the upper blue bar . The only thing left is to close the application by clicking on the x or by ctrl-alt-del and terminating. Same thing happens if clicking on "menù file --> open file" or it trying to Open file from the "Import and backup" button of the bookmarks library window. In addition, Firefox hangs also when clicking on the Menù "Options" tab.

I have tried many solutions for Firefox and for Thunderbird, including safe mode, OS safe mode, Refreshing, uninstalling both of them and reinstalling after deleting every profile folder to be sure to reinstall from schratch. I tried portable versions, uninstalled antivirus (at the moment I am running no antivirus at all ! ), updated video card NVidia quadro NVS440 drivers.

I posted a similar question about thunderbird on this forum here but I am getting convinced that the problem is about how mozilla products interact with explorer file dialog window since I essentially get the same problem when trying to work with files.

I saw a similar question here exept for the fact that I have thunderbird out of order too.

So far I couldn't figure out how to solve all this. Hope someone can help me because I have been using firefox and mozilla for more than 10 years now and would like to continue.

Thanks in advance. Bye

This one is hard to pin down, but occasionally Firefox will go unresponsive but will accept one previous mouse action (like clicking a tab) when I put Firefox in the background by clicking another open non-Firefox window and bringing it to the front.

How this happens:

1. I lock my macbook and step away from the desk for an undetermined amount of time. 2. I come back to my desk and unlock my computer. 3. I click on firefox to browse for something and it doesn't respond 4. I'll click another tab that isn't in focus, nothing will happen 5. I click on any other open application and I will notice that Firefox will change to the tab I had just clicked on 6. If I go back to Firefox, it will not respond to anything until I bring some other application to focus.

Sometimes, if I wait a long time like 10 or 15 minutes, the problem will resolve itself. Usually I just get frustrated and close Firefox.

I feel like this has to be a problem between Firefox and some other application that I run. Some other appications that are typically open are:

iTerm2 Spotify Lastpass Plugin Microsoft Outlook Atom.io Sometimes TweetDeck Maybe another Firefox profile

I have been unable to regularly reproduce this issue, but it will typically happen multiple times a day.

One other behavior that I have noticed is that I can click the address bar and nothing visible happens, but if I start typing, the suggestion bar will pop up and accept the text I am typing. I am including a picture of that behavior

Over the weeks I have tried a few things, one of them was a clean reinstall with no existing profile folder. Is there a way for me to limit the maximum amount of usable ram or find out what exactly is doing this?
