I can be actively browsing or be afk, it doesn't matter it seems, but sometimes tab would just crash. Can be active tab or some other, I'm kinda lost. I suspect it's hardware acceleration related, but I would like to fix the issue rather than turn it off.

Some reports:

bp-682cc861-90c0-4186-a369-f30a80190325

I would love to find a reason and a fix for that. Using latest nvidia drivers and latest firefox.

If I open a website with Firefox then close browser and go to open another site on my desktop, Firefox says " Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window". If I hit the close tab, the new site opens. I cannot find any other instances of Firefox running when it says this. Other browsers, Chrome etc. do not exhibit this behaviour. Any ideas ?

I'm trying to mirror a website, and firefox won't open (local) PHP files, even though they're identical to html files, only with a different suffix. It keeps asking me whether I want to "Save As..." or "Open with". When I try to open them with Firefox, I get the same dialog box...

Is there a way to get Firefox to recognize that it can open PHP files? Or at least treat them as html files? I went through the General Preferences, and even tried to change the default program to Firefox (And even tried "automatically" -- what a mistake!!), and kept getting the same dialog box. checking the code in my text editor showed that it was a simple html document. I would rather not have to go through all my files and change the suffix of every document from "php" to "html". I would think there's a better way. Is there a viewer plugin? or would it just be a fix in General Preferences -> Applications? On my Mac, it would show the document "type" beside the content type, ie. html/text.

(Ubuntu 18.04, Firefox 66.0.2)

Hi, Okay, so I'm having problems with certain websites. Etsy is not displaying correctly (all of the information is shoved into a tiny column on the right side of the screen), Amazon doesn't do hover-over on images (eg, if I want to see the different pictures/variations of a product, I have to actually click each photo. In Subscribe and Save, I have to click whatever item I want to edit/skip, and go through a couple more screens, instead of getting the convenient popup), Carrabba's online ordering just doesn't respond or let me click anything. This is a "new" laptop (I bought it on sale a couple years ago and just dragged my feet migrating to it until my previous laptop completely died). I didn't have this issue on my old laptop, or any of the other computers in the house. Firefox is synced so all of the settings between my old and new laptop are the same. I've tried all the fixes (safe mode, troubleshooting settings, turning off hardware acceleration) to no avail.

My information: HP ENVY m7 Notebook PC Product# J9K05UA#ABA Windows 8.1 64-bit Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5500U CPU @ 2.40GHz 12GB RAM Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500 NVIDIA GeForce 840M

All Windows Important and Optional updates have been installed, the graphics drivers are up to date, Firefox is up to date (66.0.2)...

Thank you for your help!

Hello, Why Firefox directly denied my localhost location service request and return permission denied error. I checked all of the settings and my localhost is not in block list. Also, Firefox is not detecting location service, it shows "No Blockable content detected on this page" while I clicked a ( i ) icon [on left-hand side of URL bar]. But, same localhost is executed perfectly on Microsoft Edge and Mircosoft Internet Explorer.

How to fix this? or how to add manually allow list for local host?

Ich möchte bei meinem neuen "Speedport Smart" die Werkseinstellungen ändern unter http://speedport.ip Leider erscheint die Warnung: "speedport.ip verwendet ein ungültiges Sicherheitszertifikat. Dem Zertifikat wird nicht vertraut, weil es vom Aussteller selbst signiert wurde. Fehlercode: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT Was soll ich machen? Danke für jeden Rat.

I like to change the router codes of my newly installed Speed Port from the German Telekom company at the site: "http://speedport.ip" Unfortunately the certificate of the product is not trusted by Firefox with the following error message: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT could I risk to ignore it?

Thank you for your advice and help

I was not able to join my firefox on this computer to my firefox account. Isn't the sync password the same as the firefox account password. So the question is when I first start my firefox it asks for a password and the same when I want to see a password I have already stored. The strange thing is it states that it is the wrong password when I choose to login in to my firefox account. So now I am concerned because I received this email on April 1st and thought this was suspicious.

I received this email (also see image attached): From: Firefox Account Team <Mozilla@e.mozilla.org> Subject: Make the most of your Firefox

I am running Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine, up to date at 1 April 2019. (No this is not an April Fool's joke!)

Some time ago, Firefox (and Thunderbird) stopped saving logins and passwords and as I had better things to do, I just put up with it. Now I would like to sort the problem out, but can find nothing specific on this problem. The closest advice is at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_make-firefox-remember-usernames-and-passwords

On this page the advice is all about clicking an a key icon. Problem is: the latest version of Firefox has no key icon.

When I check under Options-> Privacy & Security->Logins & Passwords the box to tick for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is faded out and does not work.

I have tried to attach screen shots of the instructions described, but they will not load.

I have looked all over Firefox Help but all the answers direct you back to the about instruction about clicking the key icon which is simply not present on my screen.

Other thoughts:-

Could Avast Free Antivirus have given me a 'free trial' that has upset the system?

Could Duckduckgo be in conflict with Firefox about privacy, i.e. password management?

Any suggestions?

I purchase a Microsoft surface pro 4 and I used firefox . somehow the tablet overheated to the point of melting the glue tape and releasing the lcd panel from the box and cooking the lcd panel to the shape of a turtle shell. now I have a surface pro 6 and when I use firefox even with minimal tabs the tablet overheats severely. this is ridiculous why does firefox cause the cpu to overclock and overheat and WORSE OF ALL THIS IS NON STOP

there is no doubt that firefox is the cause. I am using edge and chrome and the tablet is colder than my fridge.

why this cpu abuse.

Ok, as with everyone else my extensions quit working. My problem is have very limited bandwidth and just can't do updates for any software, just can't pay for it.

So how do I fix my extensions as mozilla has rolled out fix in a full update. This is not something I can do unless they are going to pay for it lol...

I just want my old firefox and extensions back lol... otherwise this is absolutely useless to me and might as well move on to waterfox or another browser, which is sad as I have been with firefox since beginning.
