I've been using Firefox for over 10 years. Slows down to a halt. It happens when opening a new tab or googling. I hit enter and it stops working. I've reinstalled FF3 times and it keeps failing.

I have virus protection and I'm running it without firewall. I'm on windows 10.

Thanks for any help.

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

Hi: I've used Firefox for years without trouble and I've even given money! However, I think the last update has prevented my banking site from operating correctly. In Bill payment you choose who you want to pay and fill in the amount. This still works. I move to the month, day, year boxes. If I click, say, on the month box I get a dropdown but selecting the month nothing happens. Ditto with day and year. The day box shows 1 and the year shows 202 and nothing changes when using the drop downs. Can't manually fill in the boxes. At first I thought it was my bank but they said there were no reported problems - they would! So tried Brave and Edge. Both worked perfectly. Tried it on my laptop rather than desktop and same problem using Firefox showed up. I hadn't fiddled with any Firefox settings. What to do? Thanks Donald

Video, including TV-channels is always choppy in Firefox due to disk swapping. I have just refreshed the browser and it did not help to any extent.

However, if I open the same video in Chrome, it is smooth, always (!) And I do not close Firefox - it is still running in parallel to Google's browser, increasing swapping needs of the system (but it is not a problem for Chrome at all).

Please let me know what I can try here. The problem is probably in the method of data caching on disk in Firefox.

Thank you!

Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

In the past week or so, Firefox has unexpectedly "frozen" and does not respond. I have not loaded any new programs during this period. The only way I can get Firefox to run is to end all the Firefox processes in Task Manager and restart it. I also noticed that there are usually 9 firefox processes running in Task Manager.

Is this a Firefox problem or a computer problem?

In Firefox, but not in Edge or Chrome, the shaded boxes enclosing text or delineating the page (on any web page, or in a PDF viewed in the browser) are missing.

In Gmail, for example, all the navigation elements above the list of emails are invisible, e.g. the little box and caption for selecting all the emails on the page, or for refreshing the page; and further, if all the emails are selected, the boxes for: Archive, Report Spam, Delete, Mark As Read, Snooze, Add To Tasks, Move to Inbox, More ... are invisible.

At WashingtonPost.com, for example, the banner ads that automatically display at the top of the home page, and at intervals throughout the page, and the shading around headlines on other pages, do not appear.

I experience the exact same issue as [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1311714] since I've updated to Firefox 100 on macOS.

E.g. I get a page not fully loaded.

myheritage.fr works fine in private browsing and on iOS.

I tried to reload the page bypassing the cache and force a fresh retrieval: Mac=Command+Shift+R

It works "fine" for the current page. However, when I go to another page of the website then the new page gets broken.

I also tried to :

  • Clear cache and local storage
  • Deactivate plugins and themes
  • Change the Network.dns.disablePrefetch value
  • Change the dom.storage.next_gen value
  • Use the safe mode
  • Use the recovery option

None of the above work. Not to mention that the website works well in private browsing and on safari.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox (which will remain my browser of choice). For that reason it seems, I keep getting prompted to pin Firefox to the Taskbar.

I don't want to do that, as I keep my taskbar small and uncluttered (nothing is pinned there). Hence I'd like to turn off being asked. However, when I get the above message I have only 2 options: Yes or Not Now. And it seems 'Not now' means "not now, but of course feel free to keep asking".

Is there any way I can turn of this pop up permanently?

I'm running v100.0.1 (64-bit) on Win10. I've seen others report this problem but haven't found a fix listed anywhere. <Ctrl-P> or Menu->Print results in the same problem. The print overlay starts up (say Print in top right corner), spinning wheel above Preparing Preview in the center of the overlay... Never ends. I have to Esc to get out of it. Happens on any page. Print dialogue works fine on same pages with Chrome and Edge.

Like the title says the 3 finger gesture to move between full screen images doesn't work with firefox 100.0 Macbook pro 16" 2019 running catalina 10.15.7. What happens is that full screen is exited and browser moves back to the previous page.

Only had this problem after updating firefox.

I've seen conversations from as far back as 10 years ago where people have had this problem but their fixes don't work.

This should work without an add on plug in or app. It should simply work.

Done all the usual things restarted finder, restarted computer, checked all the setting in computer preferences. Tried other browsers and it works with both google and safari.

I switched to firefox and spent a lot of time organizing and setting up only to have this problem. This is a feature I use often (every day) so it is a deal breaker even with all the time I've invested in switching.

Does anyone have an answer for me? How do I get the 3 finger gesture back on my MacBook?
