After MickeySoft's Patch Tuesday today, I found that KB5010342 prevents Firefox from running. I'm running Win10 Pro with FF 97.0 64-bit and with this patch installed, FF opens with a blank screen and no DNS lookup or anything. Other browsers like Chrome or Edge load and work without issue. After manually uninstalling this patch, Firefox again works like it should.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

I have updated my Firefox on PC to the newest version available (version 120.0.0.8720 as of 24/11/23 00:30 UTC). Unfortunately whenever I try to open it, it loads a blank screen and then crashes, and brings up the crash reporter. This has happened every time I try and open Firefox, even during Troubleshoot mode. I have over 180+ tabs and thousands of bookmarks on my account that I do not want to lose (I have not used Refresh Firefox for this very reason) but if I can't even access them on my computer then what can I do?

Please help me, I want to know how to fix this and keep my tabs and history. I am desperate.

After firefox update to 100.0 - i can't use any of my addons, and cant install new one. All my current updates appears in "disabled" status, and there's no "enable" button. I have many addons, so it's the global problem.

Also, i can't install any of updates from addons.mozilla.org, i get message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". All addon xpi files are downloaded without problem using "save as", also, after clicking "install" on addons website i see download progress.

Please help to resolve this issue!

Hi,

I am using Firefox for Linux, and whenever my yubikey is plugged in, firefox will start bothering me for a pkcs#11 password. It always happens on start-up but it gets relentlessly annoying if I happen to be on a site which potentially utilizes certificate auth, which I do not use this yubikey for.

I do however use it for 2fa, which does work perfectly fine.

How do I permanently stop whatever Firefox process keeps bothering me about this PKCS#11 password for functionality that I never use?

I've been using Firefox for many years without a problem and have always liked it, but I've recently starting encountering a problem where Firefox consistently crashes after closing. After I close Firefox, the Windows Task Manager shows it still in memory. After a couple of minutes, the Mozilla Crash Reporter screen pops up informing me that Firefox had a problem and crashed, with an option to restart Firefox or Quit. I tried refreshing Firefox, which was a challenge because of the problem of hanging in memory after closing, but it did not resolve the problem. I also tried uninstalling it, then deleting the Mozilla folders and clearing out any references to Firefox in the Windows registry, and reinstalling it. I haven't installed any extensions yet; but sadly, I continue to encounter the problem. Any ideas about how to resolve the problem?

I should mention that I had bought a new SSD for my computer and migrated everything over from the old SSD to the new one. The problem with Firefox began after the migration. Everything else that was installed there works without a problem. I would be surprised if this is related to the issue considering I've reinstall Firefox.

Copy-pasting of files not working in Ubuntu 22.04

Hey there,

Intro: I recently switched to Linux and (because Brave is so broken) also to Firefox and I am liking it so far.

Problem: Unfortunately I can't copy-paste files from Ubuntu Files (Nautilus) to Firefox (I tested image files and also sounds files, neither is working).

Test with Firefox: 1. Download a random photo (e.g. from Unsplash) 2. Select the file and hit ctrl + c in Files/Nautilus 3. I go to the clipboard inspector 4. I hit ctrl + v 5. The image does not show up in the output (see screenshot)

Test with Brave: 1. Do the same as above 2. The image does show up in the output (see screenshot)

Notes: - I am using Linux Ubuntu 22.04 with Wayland - Firefox Version 107.0 (64-bit) for Ubuntu Canonical - 1.0 - I have no extensions installed - I am not using the snap version (so I can scroll smoothly) ... I think I used apt-get install but not 100% sure

I normally trust your updates but I'm really regretting this one. Can you help me not switch over to chrome? Maybe you're already aware of this bug and will have it fixed soon.

I have a blog hosted on Render. The base URL provided by them is https://parker-codes.onrender.com. This URL works perfectly, in all browsers.

I purchased a domain from Google and then linked a CNAME record to the Render one: https://blog.parker-codes.dev. This URL works in many browsers except for Firefox Mobile (on Android). I receive the error "Address not found. The browser could not find the host server for the provided address."

- I flushed the DNS cache and checked that it propagated across the globe. I used nslookup to verify the domain resolution. - I tested in various other browsers on desktop (Safari, Chrome, Firefox) and mobile (Chrome) and they all work. - I turned off mobile extensions. I also tried in a private window. Still no luck. - I reached out to Google support. They don't see any domain or DNS issues on their end.

From all of this, it appears that the Firefox mobile browser has a bug that can't load the site for some reason. It can't properly resolve the host even though many other browsers can.

Hello, I just installed windows 10 on my nephews computer. I installed firefox so I don't have to use edge, but firefox won't start. It just flashes. I have tried re-installing firefox, deleted all mozilla and firefox files and folders and clean installed firefox, even reinstalled windows. Troubleshoot mode don't work, it just flashes too. I checked for Crash Reports, but there are none. The only time it works is when windows is in safe mode, I even upgraded to computer to windows 11 hoping that it would fix what ever is going on. But it didn't. I honestly have no idea what to do next. Firefox has worked on that computer before. Everything else works fine, it's just firefox that won't work. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

I have been using firefox for more than 4 years now. But from about a year, i m facing the issue with the Sudden High CPU usage in Windows task manager.

The task manager has 2 different firefox processes. One being actual instance i am running. and the 2nd being the automatically opened in background.

i have figured out whenever i have active internet connection and my system is on charging the 2nd task automatically starts in background and uses upto 80% of cpu usage. Ending the 2nd task form task manager doesn't affect anything. only the cpu usage drops. Also Closing my firefox instance does nothing to that 2nd task.

I have tried lot of solutions i found on community. Nothing seems to help. problem still persist. I even posted comments on ongoing threads. but no reply from anywhere.

this is the last time i m trying. if i get a solution its good. otherwise i am going to shift to edge. I have no other choice.

Screenshots from multiple dates are attached.

Hello!

I often log in to a service ticketing website to help my customers. Before emailing them I must reference the service ticket number somewhere in the email, but this is very difficult to do in Firefox. If I inspect the element this is what I see:

<em unselectable="on" style="width: 2161px;">Service Ticket #55474079</em>

I understand the unselectable attribute is on but even if I try setting it to off or deleting it all together the problem remains. Moreover, I've tried it in several browsers (Chrome, Edge, DuckDuckGo) and it works fine without any extensions or tricks.

In other words: only Firefox keeps me from selecting this very important piece of info.

Any help would be very much appreciated! I looked up help articles but nothing similar to my case. I did find an extension for the browser but I am afraid to try it due to security reasons.

Thank you!

Firefox 120.0 on openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Google Maps (https://www.google.com/maps) results in CPU being pegged at 100%. No other tabs open. All I have to do is load the URL and do nothing else. This behavior is repeatable. CPU stays at 100% until tab is closed or browser is shut down. Sometimes the browser will hang and its PID has to be killed.

Offending process:

I used to be able to scroll to the bottom of my Youtube subscription list, to see the very first posted videos of all of my subscriptions, going back to the first days of Youtube in 2005. Granted, not all of the videos would show up, and I don't know if that is a Youtube problem or a Firefox problem, but most of the videos would be there. Now, after going back less than a year in the archive, the scrolling just kind of peters out. Firefox becomes unresponsive to any key press or mouse click, and all I can do is quit the program. What has changed? Has Firefox gotten even worse at memory management? it was always a total pig with memory, but has it reached the point where it just plain malfunctions and can't recover? If that is the case, then Firefox devs had better get their spit together and work on optimization. I really don't want to have to start using Edge, thank you, no. I only use Edge to view PDFs.

I am using a Dell Inspiron 3847 with the standard keyboard which came the system years ago

Recently, when viewing a large online page, when I try to scroll down, the scroll doesn't start until about two seconds after I press my scroll key (which is the lower-middle key of the 4 keys between my right-hand "Ctrl" key and the "0" of the 10-key keyboard at the far right of the keyboard).

This delay started happening a few weeks ago. I do not know whether something I did caused it.

How can I scroll my view starting immediately, rather than having to wait two seconds for it to start?

Alright first of all I already tried all the tipps about Proxy and basically anything network related. It also happened out of nowhere since I was using my computer the night before but when I tried opening Firefox the next day it wouldnt load any site, crashed if I tried too much or got really weird and even if it did load after a long time of trial and error it only lasted for a bit and didnt load fully either. I'm on version 108.0.2 as of the last time checking. Everything else seems to be updated as well especially since other browsers work perfectly fine. I also cant really click on much since as I said if I try too much it crashes or doesnt work as intended. I'll provide some pictures which might help the cash report just in case.

I'd also rather not try reinstalling everything since I have a lot of rather important tabs open and I dont wanna risk losing any of them since im not sure how well the Firefox sync. works in this case.

I've posted this problem before and did receive replies attempting to help. Unfortunately, the problem has continued for a long time (I think at least a year). I frequently can't access websites (e.g. Yahoo Mail) using Firefox but can using Edge or Brave. With Firefox, I get the following error message:

"Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to login.yahoo.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I had hoped that the problem would be solved by a Firefox update but that has not happened.

I also regularly get the message "No Internet Connection" while using Firefox but, when I use Edge or Brave while the error message is displayed, there is Internet connection.

I'm using the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 Pro.

I've used Firefox for many years and really don't want to have to switch to, say, Brave.
