Many bugs and crashes with Firefox

  1. 1 Not able to install an automatic update, via the Menu Help --> About Firefox (or Thunderbird). This bug / problems sits already inside the earlier versions of Firefox and Thunderbird.
  • A No new version is shown.
  • B Firefox (or Thunderbird) tries to download / install this update, bug become someway corrupted and also stuck in this process.
  • C Firefox (or Thunderbird) says to apply the update you must restart the program. After Firefox (or Thunderbird) was restarted, the program keeps trying installing or downloading this same or another update. I see a spinning circle only, no progress bar. Waiting, trying again later or another restart from Firefox (or Thunderbird) does nothing.

Only way to update Firefox is via https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release Which always shows the wrong language. Only way to update Thunderbird is via https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/all/#product-desktop-release Here, I can click on letter from my language and download the setup package. After this update installation was done, the Help --> About (program name) window show the program is last version. But not seems not always the last version, like version x.x.01 to x.x.02, then tries to install this newer small version and gets stuck in the same loop or corruption.

  • D You must use the setup package, because the installer doesn't work, likes to abort the installation and shows error messages about something gone wrong. Installer package is incomplete or damaged, not for current version and Windows.
  • E For last newer versions, they seems not working anymore directly. The program can be restarted once or few times before it seems working. Until other bugs appear.
  • F Always adding a new and faulty shortcut, but I have already a working shortcut on my Desktop. Icon hasn't logo from Firefox or Thunderbird, but the setup icon.
  • G Sometimes you cannot start Firefox or Thunderbird, due the update did something wrong.

Missing file(s) and/or some strange error message after I clicked on the shortcut from the program. Another run from this "update" setup is needed. Remove a or all "Firefox.exe" from the Taskmanager list.

  • H Bug that stops add-ones working. This can be happen due the general function / thing for add-ones inside Firefox crashes, become bugged or corrupted. 1 add-one or more add-ones take the others and stop working, become bugged or corrupted. Add-ones will forget things, their work / functions or do it halfway. Has something to do with the installation and/or data from add-ones. They seems to not having support or do anything about their problems.
  1. 2 Random many crashes without any useful (error) messages, can be with closing the program itself.

Already from earlier versions of Firefox. And also Thunderbird too. This bug seems to sit deep inside the programs. I should be to use Firefox, Thunderbird, Notepad together, with having a some folders open. Switching between them can be annoying slow. Takes longer time be before responding. I'm seeing empty white or black windows. Only last selected section is visible, has the text and smaller pictures. I can have Firefox and Thunderbird left open for hours and later finding one or both programs are closed by itself. No reason, no permission given to do that. Add a new tab or click on a current site, there is no (fast) respond. Same for buttons, filters and filling in forms on a site. One program can pull the other program in closing to when the one is crashing. Also Windows will show several error messages about programs are using to much memory and must be closed. If this has programs listed, then Firefox seems to appear most here of the programs I'm using.

Updating doesn't fix anything Using the safe mode and new profiles are no long time solutions, every time anything is gone or nog working better.

It seems you must have 2 profiles running at same time when you want read something and not switching back between every minute or so. If 1 is near crashing, you have still the other one running.

  1. 3 Why I'm seeing 20x to 72x a Firefox.exe in my Taskmanager? They takes a lot of memory, showing different sizes. I started Firefox once. This is not needed.
  1. 4 Some sites seems to not work in Firefox or takes longer time.

Same for responding on clicking, using filters, buttons and sending forms. Clicking on those (annoying) accept (popup) windows. Unable to login or confirm an (security) action like this with a word or number given via e-mail. Might be something for the site. When you need to use Private Browsing for this.

  1. 5 Icons from installed add-ones don't appear in main bar, at right side. How to use them? Before they did.
  1. 6 Site using third party host sites are slow and mostly don't work. Connection errors.

"Seems fine here, but something with you". Refresh page doesn't fix it. Wait and try again later, how long? Firefox should block these sites.

  1. 7 After updating to Firefox version 115.0.2 and continue my last session, there are appear several new bugs.
  • A I cannot longer visit sites. Even earlier visited sites don't load. Firefox keeps stuck in loading or receiving site info data. Sites don't appear, just an empty (white) page. Also about:support doesn't work. Strangely, I can visit Google.com but not open any site from there. I tried Private Browsing, so no add-one can do something with this.

I had Firefox running for some hours, these sites are still stuck in "loading" or something else.

  • B Right click to open a site or page in a new tab doesn't longer work. Right click menu appears, but action will not be done. Which can be strange at top, missing or changed items.
  • C Same to copy line of text or picture, action isn't longer "remembered".

Now, I created again a new profile and again this doesn't fix them. Even more bugs and stranger. Again lost everything, settings, sites, installing dictionaries and add-ones. Stupid.

  • C1 I can visit websites, but with some strange things, not always working fine.

That makes it to post my problems here.

  • C2 Cannot longer type keywords in the addressbar and after pressing Enter, you should visit Google with search results. Firefox thinks the given keyword is a not existing website.

In Settings (via about:preferences#search), there are no search engines (Google, Wikipedia, ect) in the list, who should be there by default. Also there's no default search engine selected, the list therefor is small and empty.

  • C3 Yet visited near 10 sites, who I cannot visit any of the sites with my other long time using profile. Then Firefox crashed by random, white empty window. Windows adds not responding at end of the program's title bar. I could restart Firefox after that, get the "continue after a crash" tab and revisit any of these sites in their opened tabs.
  • C4 A site keeps saying cookies are disabled / denied, while minimal are accepted when some of that stupid (popup) windows did show. This means: Some stupid messages don't disappear after clicking "OK", the "X" or close buttons / links. Site might not work fine or on some parts. Something can follow you browsing through the site. Not able to visit that site or part.
  • C5 A site keeps saying there is an ad-blocker installed, but there is no add-one like that installed. This means: Stupid messages like these keep appearing; site cannot work fine; you cannot visit the site due some invisible wall or blocking thing. Some can follow you browsing through the site. This is very annoying.
  • C6 With one profile I cannot longer open sites who worked before. Keeps loading, shows URL in addressbar and on the tab.

And the about: .... pages. While with a new profile I can visit those sites, but right click menu is bugged.

  • Cannot open site or page in new tab. Only on Google based sites are working for unknown reasons, but not YouTube.
  • Missing items or I can see more gray things and lines.
  • Cannot copy selected text. Stil having old or wrong text.
  • Cannot Search with Google, this option is missing.
  • Cannot see the source code from the page, due action is not happen.
  • On sites that are working you can only read that current content. Can open links in new tabs, but their pages are empty / white, keep loading forever.
  • A few sites don't load and still giving a empty page. Loading takes longer then needed. For same site.
  • Use Google by typing the keyword in the addressbar doesn't visit Google site, but Firefox thinks the site doesn't exist, is wrong typed. You must go to Google.com and typing the keyword in the textbox here.
  • If a site worked first, then later it cannot working longer, keeps stuck in loading and showing a empty white page / tab.
  • Login for some sites is not longer possible, email send with security word or number doesn't appear. I can send myself a test e-mail to this e-mail address. Waited the time enough and made a new attempt, still the same.

Windows PC. Firefox version 117.0 x64. Via Help --> About Firefox, because about:support doesn't show the version and build.

Today, randomly, duck duck go no longer works natively with Firefox. If I set DDG as my default search, and try to search using the search bar or use one of the shortcuts like "@ddg" I get an error "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete." I have tried closing, clearing cache, clearing history, and nothing seems to reset it. I can still go through Google, search for duck duck go, and use it that way, but it seems that the native search is now broken.

Why is this happening since the last few updates?

When downloading any file in Firefox (the picture is an example), the "Firefox" option will be added in the right-click open-with in Windows Explorer. This does not happen in other browsers. And this item is added without permission, it is a bad behavior.

在Firefox中下载任意文件(图中为一个例子),在Windows 资源管理器右键打开方式中都会被添加“Firefox”选项,这不会发生在其他浏览器上,而且一个浏览器未经允许添加一个打开方式是不好的行为。

I run a website that is custom built and we are seeing a potential issue in which the headers and header links are showing in the reader view of every page above the content for the page. But I'm also not sure if this is necessarily bad or might be affecting SEO.

Does anyone know whether this is detrimental to SEO, and if so, are there any suggestions on what might be causing this to happen in the code?

I have run into an annoyance where I am trying to click on a link in my email to open a new page. Clicking on the link makes a bar show up telling me that Firefox has prevented a popup from being opened (see attached image). I am given the option of managing my preferences / Firefox settings, where I can either go through multiple steps to permanently allow all pop-ups from that website until I restore my original settings, or uncheck a box to permanently allow all pop-ups from all sites until I check that box again. This is annoying because I have no interest in either allowing or disallowing all pop-ups from all websites, or all pop-ups from this specific website, every time I want to open a single pop-up from a specific site. I would rather that the warning bar which tells me that Firefox has blocked a pop-up also display a button allowing me to allow ONLY THIS SPECIFIC POP-UP IN THIS SPECIFIC CASE.

Is this a setting that exists in Firefox? Alternatively, is there a version of Firefox which does have a setting which would allow this? Or is this simply not a functionality that exists for this browser?

Hey!

I'm working on a translation management software called Plunet.

There are text boxes within Plunet where the spell checker does work, and others in which the spell checker is not even an option. It doesn't recognize misspelled words by underlining them in red, and when I right-click on words, the only option available is "Link". (See screenshot.) Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hola. Mi ordenador tiene Debian 12. Utilizo Firefox 118, instalado a través de Flatpak. El problema que tengo en algunas páginas es que veo las fuentes pixeladas y la impresión es muy defectuosa, hasta el punto de no entender lo que aparece escrito. Esto sólo pasa en algunas páginas.

Si descargo directamente Firefox desde la página de Mozilla y abro la paǵina con una configuración limpia del navegador, las fuentes se ven correctamente; sin embargo, si sincronizo los datos de usuario, instalándose los datos, extensiones y demás las fuentes en determinadas páginas se ven mal.

Desactivé las extensiones pero el problema no se resuelve. Desde una instalación limpia de Firefox instalé una a una las extensiones y complementos, pero no logré reproducir el problema. Borré incluso la caché del navegador, pero nada. Y también sincronicé los datos de usuario en una instalación de Firefox en Fedora, pero el resultado es también negativo.

Alguna idea?

Gracias.

Hello:

I must use the magnifier that came with Windows or I cannot read the screen. All was fine until Firefox updated. Now, when I try to use the magnifier, Firefox and all the sites I am using freeze. The entire screen fades out, and an hour glass shows up. But nothing happens after that. I have to go to the task manager and close Firefox, then start it up again.

This happens at random intervals, mostly when firefox is being left idle.

Since it starts >1000 threads, it easily fills ram and swap, then get killed by OOM killer. Hence no crash reports.

Recently FireFox has stopped saving changes to my saved logins/passwords. I am using a master password. When I exit FF (I have it set to resume with the same windows and tabs open) and then restart, all the saved passwords have reverted to some time in the past where they remain frozen. If I try to login to a website, FF will ask for my master password, then fill in the OLD password. I can update it (replace the auto-filled string with the correct one) -- for example, login to a site using the correct (NEW) password, and then choose "UPDATE" in the pop-up -- and those will persist until I exit. But after exiting and restarting, all the passwords have reverted to the old values. This also applies to adding and removing saved passwords, or editing them manually in the "about:logins" page. For example, I keep deleting the password for a no-longer-in-use account and it disappears until I restart Firefox, then it comes back.

This makes me think that something has changed the ownership or permissions on the file where these encrypted passwords are saved locally and so Firefox silently skips the step to write them out on exit (or update them incrementally as I change them). I do not use a FF/Mozilla account to save them in the cloud, I just keep them on the local machine, which is Mac OS X Big Sur (11.6.8).

I did find somewhere online (on mozilla.org, I *think*) that the file is "logins.json" at the top level of my active profile. But that file has not been modified since 01/15/2023 (over 8 months ago), and removing it does not seem to have had an impact on the problem, so I am guessing that wherever I found that info (that logins.json is where they are stored) was probably some out-of-date post from a past version of Firefox.

I am hoping someone can tell me which file is not being updated so I can inspect its ownership/permissions and then either fix it or delete the file. I am guessing that I can export the list to a csv file, exit Firefox, delete the storage file, then restart Firefox and import the saved csv file in order to fix it -- but I need to know which file it is.

Or, can someone tell me where to look for an error log that might contain an explanation of something going wrong while trying to update my profile on exit? NOTE: the rest of the profile seems to be OK, my windows and tabs are restored correctly on restart, they are NOT frozen in time.

Thank you for any help you can offer me.
