Hi! Recently, in my laptop, Firefox started freezing at every single startup; after force shutdown and restart, though, it works flawlessly each time, and for the whole duration of the session at the computer. Can anyone please suggest a solution?

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction.

I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the browser, removing all of my bookmarks (about 10,000) and addressing extensions (Decentraleyes, Default Bookmark Folder, Disable Tab Detach, Flagfox, I don't care about cookies, Keepa, Notifier for Gmail, Privacy Badger, To Google Translate, uBlock Origin, Undo Close Tab, Video DownloadHelper and Youtube's Annotations No More), but not even safe mode improved the situation in the least. Windows Defender also hasn't detected any malware and my web surfing habits are as safe as it gets.

The only deeper data I could gather is that the problem manifests with a progressive, rapid surge in CPU and RAM usage; the former, for example, is saturated to its total 16 GB in a matter of about 20 seconds.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7586 with Windows 11 64 bit; Firefox version is the latest, 100.0, and, by the way, none of the recent updates has improved the situation.

Thanks to anyone who might come up with an educated guess!

I'm on a Mac, running the latest version of Firefox. Recently I've had some work to do that meant I wanted to keep multiple tabs open, so I changed my settings to 'restore previous session' so I'd get my tabs back when I turned my computer off/on.

For a few days all was going well, then Firefox crashed. I managed to get it back up again and change the setting so it wasn't trying to restore multiple tabs. But since then no luck, Firefox opens but I get the spinning wheel curser and Firefox shows as non-responsive, I have to force quit the app.

I've tried uninstalling it, still no luck. I'm writing this from Google Chrome.

Can anyone help? I much prefer Firefox, but it's currently unusable for me, and as the browser freezers I can't get into any of the settings etc.

Good day,

Everytime, since a few weeks, when I start a new session I have to accept cookies again with many websites. e.g. Google or De Telegraaf. Normally with the Telegraaf I have to log in just once, but since a few weeks I have to log in every time. In firefox settings I have "remember history" on.

It's getting close to time to DELETE FIREFOX since MSEDGE built on Chrome is Faster anyway!

I am using Firefox 94 on Debian Linux (details below). I've been a happy FF user for many years but, ever since I updated to Firefox 93, I've been facing an odd problem.

When I start FF (usually using my system launcher or the command line), the first window that opens will not allow me to open a new tab. Press the '+' button does nothing; trying to open links in a new tab does nothing; etc. Not only this, but it seems like there are other problems (e.g. my adblocker does not seem to be working in YouTube), but I can't confirm this.

When I open a new window from the menu, all functions work normally in the new window. But the original window continues to have these problems.

This isn't a major inconvenience, but it just seems like an odd bug.

One factor that might have something to do with this - I run FF inside Firejail. I start FF via a one line script:

`firejail /opt/firefox/firefox`

Maybe this has something to do with it?

Thanks so much to Mozilla for this wonderful piece of software, and to all of you for helping out with it!

Two days ago Firefox randomly started crashing on start up. I click on the icon and the window pops up for a moment and then closes immediately. I get no crash reports. I have tried reinstalling Firefox and deleting the cached data. I have tried running Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode and as an administrator. I have tried restarting my computer and updating my computer. I did not have any addons installed on Firefox and I was using the default theme. Nothing is working.

Any help you may have is greatly appreciated.

Some time ago, firefox stopped launching. I tried everything. I refreshed, reinstalled, clean reinstalled, reset windows, deleted possibly interfering programs, and clean reinstalled windows (that was for other problems). I am running windows 10 home build 10.0.19042 (currently the latest) on a omen HP laptop 15-dc0xxx. It is x64 bit device with a intel core i7 8 gen cpu and a nvidia 1050 ti mobile. It does not seem to be a hardware issue as a linux kernel that I have dual booting with windows 10 runs it like a champ.

    When launched the application load for a period of ~7 seconds and for a frame or two there is a small window with either nothing on it or a safe mode window that goes away after a frame. When the problems started I closed firefox and reopened it a small bit later and the problems above happened. Windows safe mode will run firefox. Opera has very similar problems if that helps any. Google chrome, microsoft edge, microsoft internet explorer are all unaffected.

Firefox (and chrome, but not edge) crashes on startup. There's no crash report. The window shows up as an outline for a fraction of a second and then is gone. It doesn't show up in task manager. I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. I've updated windows and my antivirus. I've tried a few other fixes that came up from searching for a fix, but so far nothing has helped.

Every time I start up my PC I can find a firefox.exe process in the task manager that uses 40-50% of CPU and I have to terminate the process manually every time. Firefox is not enabled in my startup so I don't know what causes that process to show up and use that much of my CPU (note: an opened firefox browser with multiple tabs only uses around 5% of CPU just for reference)

Hello,

since months I have problem with automatic launch of Firefox on my computer, It's really insupportable. I'm ready to abandon firefox. I'm on windows 10 and I use Firefox 83. There is 3 different sessions on my computer and only one has the problem.... my session. Firefox launch a new windows always and regularely, when the computer start, and all the time during the use of my sessions. If i'm already on Firefox, a new windows open's.... If I close this one, few second after an other open's..... If I put this one on background, about 1 min after again an other open's. Like this always and indefinitevely. Whatever my use of the computer or the site to visit. Even when I don't use internet and use other software to work, Firefox starts up and goes in front of my software. If I let my session opened and I do nothings, after a certain time a lot of firefox windows are open. You can easily understand why I say that It's really insupportable... and this only with Firefox on my session.

My computer is protected with antivirus, and I did a full scan several time, I also tried with an other antivirus software. I used 2 softwares for detect malware... Nothing. I try to uninstall and reinstall Firefox, but the problem still the same after reinstall. I already set the "toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart" on "false" but firefox start alone again, again, again...

Does anyone has an idea of what is the problem and what I can do ?

Thanks.

I have stated this issue once before after trying to find a solution by myself.

My query: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363376

Whenever I boot up my laptop, firefox starts running in the background taking up a lot of memory space and cpu utilization. I have been with ffirefox since I started using laptops which is 7-8 years back. I never thought of switching browser or finding an alternative of firefox until for some months the issue is occurring. Now I am really annoyed to open up task manager every time and close firefox which is running in the backgroud. I have seen nothing unusual in the "about:performance" tab of firefox.

Please help me to continue my journey with firefox.

Hi,

My name is Julio. I'm from Brazil and i'm using Ububtu 18.04 LTS OS. After an update/upgrade routine firefox have started to crashing at startup. I've tried almost everything avaible on mozilla's support webpage (https://support.mozilla.org/pt-BR/kb/falhas-do-firefox-solucione-previna-e-obtenha-ajuda#w_peca-ajuda-para-solucionar-esta-falha). I've already removed manually the folder .mozilla (~/.mozilla) and tried a clean install using different ways: ubuntu repository, comand line (sudo apt install firefox), synaptic repository, downloading the firefox-89.0.tar.bz2 file on firefox webpage... and nothing have worked for me. I can't access the troubleshoot mode (the app crashes before that). When i ran firefox on comand line the outcome is:

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 12536 ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error.

Despite the information avaible on support webpage, i couldn't find a folder ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/submitted. I've found just text files: LastCrash and submit.log (and another stuffs).

Follows the content of submit.log file:

[dom 06 jun 2021 23:10:29 -03] Crash report submitted successfully [dom 06 jun 2021 23:13:31 -03] Crash report submitted successfully [dom 06 jun 2021 23:16:23 -03] Crash report submitted successfully

And the content of LastCrash is:

When opening any version after 89, Firefox opens then is unresponsive to any action. I have to force quit. I copied the crash report that is sent to Apple. It is a 500+ page Word document. The only solution is to reinstall v89.0.2 and it works fine. Then not allow automatic updates.

Any suggestion appreciated.

So I got on my computer today, and I tried to open Firefox, but it wouldn't open, I would get a loading icon on my cursor and then nothing. So I restarted my computer, same issue. Reinstalled Firefox, same issue. I then reinstalled after having deleted the %appdata% folder for Mozilla, but that also changed nothing. So I looked in Task Manager, and it would just open instances of Firefox as a background app no matter how many times I clicked. I've also tried using other browsers with no success. (Also, I'm runnning Windows 10, 64-Bit version, and had not installed any programs recently before Firefox stopped working.) I would greatly appreciate if I could get some assistance with this because I prefer Firefox much more than Microsoft Edge which is the only browser I'm able to use right now.
