When I execute Firefox, my Windows 7 Device Manager begins to constantly reset/refresh.

This happens about every 10 seconds.

Even when I have disabled all extensions and add-ons and I have removed and reinstalled Firefox, the behavior still happens.

The behavior disappears if I (i) terminate Firefox, (ii) run Explorer or (iii) run Chrome.

Any thoughts?

Since upgrading to FF 41 I am plagued with constant non-stop (not responding) error. Which of course requires FF to be shutdown and restarted. The previous version of FF on the same computer and running WIN 10 did not have this problem. This problem started as soon as I upgraded to FF 41.

With-in the last two months Firefox has stopped working on most of our Windows 7 computers.

After clicking to open nothing happens but the process does show in Task Manager.

The only way to use Firefox is to re-install the program each time you want to use it.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. I tried using Safari and it works fine but I want my Firefox back!

Thank you for your time and consideration :)

I am using a brand new Dell XPS 13 9370 less then a week old. . Twice now I have left my machine unattended for a long period of time with the Firefox Quantum program on screen. The first time was for 30 minutes, and then second for 3 hours. When the machine resumes out of sleep mode the screen goes black and I am unable to use the machine and am forced to do a hard reset to restart the machine. I have a second monitor plugged in both times. an Insignia 32" flat screen TV that is several years old. One time the TV screen went black and I was able to recover by unplugging the screen before the problem migrated to the laptop screen. Since I have uninstalled the Firefox program this issue has not re-occurred and it has been three days.

A number of times when I open my macbook pro, the screen is on, but black. There are no windows visible, not even the login prompt. I end up doing a forced power off in order to log in. Recently I saw that the display was in the process of presenting the login form, and also present was the Firefox autoupdate progress bar dialog. Everything seemed locked up... no updates to the progress bar, and the login form was not accessible. The only differences this time was that the screen saver display was not blocking my view of the display... but I could see just those two items, not the full desktop. Makes me wonder if there is some sort of conflict or race condition present when autoupdate is trying to run when the screen is locked. I have since turned off Firefox's autoupdate feature and have it set to 'prompt me'. Will have to wait for the next Firefox update to see if that had an effect.

I wish I had taken a pic of the screen in that bizarre state.

when I go into facebook and click on my game, Happy Acres, then when I click home and try to go back to the home page, it says it is loading facebook home page but everything freezes up. I can't do anything at that point and facebook home page doesn't ever come up. I tried to do the same thing in microsoft edge and it worked just fine. I've never had this problem with Firefox before.

Hardware: Lenovo Ideapad 100 Laptop, i3-5005U CPU, 8GB RAM. Software: Arch Linux OS, Kernel 4.19, Firefox 63.

Issue: While using Firefox, the system freezes completely, forcing a reboot. This happens randomly, and may be minutes after launching the program, or spaced by a few days. It is especially common while watching videos on Youtube (If I open several tabs with one focused on a long video on Youtube, it is very likely the system will eventually freeze) but it has also happened when trying to switch tabs, opening firefox's menu, and scrolling.

What I've tried: Reinstalling Firefox, creating a new places database, disabling hardware acceleration. I use no extensions. After each of these tweaks, the system has eventually frozen at least once. I have tried stressing the system's CPU and -virtual- memory for a while in two separate occassions using the STRESS program, with no freezes. Temepratures always stay below 65C. I have also tried "stressing" the system using two other browsers: Opera and Chromium. Opening many sites in tabs, with one focusing a playing video on Youtube, and letting it run for a long while. No freezes either.

It might be related to this issue: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=236686 but for me it has only happened while using Firefox, and no other program like LibreOffice, Chromium, Opera, PCManFM, stress, etc.

Is there any way to fix this? It is very disappointing as I much prefer using Firefox than any other browser.
