After the latest update on firefox I am no longer able to give facebook the permissions to use my Microphone which means i can no longer make calls. My hardware and software for my headset is up to date, as i use it on Discord with no issues what so ever. when i go into Privacy & security and click on Microphone permissions, it has removed all the websites that i have previously given permission to use it and am unable to add any new ones, the block new requests asking to access your microphone is also unchecked, this is really starting to frustrate me and hope it can get fixed ASAP

It is a folder in program files (x86)\common files\

When I mouse hover over any of the EXEs it says it is a Firefox program. Google tells me nothing.

The problem is, it (the update.exe) keeps causing games to minimize whilst I am playing. I know this, because I installed Windows Focus Logger. I ended up deleting it. So far I have had no issues with Firefox functionality.

What is it for ? And why is Update trying to phone home ? And why is it ignoring all Windows 10's settings to not grab focus ?

Hi everyone,

When I check my email, i have a tendency to just type in "gmail" and then search directly from the search bar. For some reason Firefox decided to give me an option to "add http://" to the beginning of my search term to 'make it easier'

Problem is now it just puts in http://gmail/ which causes issues as it doesn't add .com and I can't find the option to remove this from my search bar or bookmarks. I've reset and cleared the history and everything, and can't find this option. I'd like to just disable it outright, as all it's done is cause a headache.

Attached is the autocomplete filling in the first entry, which I cannot find a way to remove it. I realy like firefox and know there's a way to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!

When I m using google doc or sheet to edit a document from google drive, I notice that my cursor will freeze for 5-10 sec from time to time. No issues with chrome on the same documents. I never had this problem until the firefox updates in the past few months. I have tried the usual steps such as disabling all plugins, start firefox in safemode but nothing works. The problem is consistent across all documents, even for new documents. Does anyone know of a workaround?

I bought a new PC recently, which includes new hard drives and everything. Sync was always turned on on my old PC that I used until I switched to new one completely. And now when I logged into my Firefox account and tried sync, to my surprise, NOTHING synced. I've lost all of my saved passwords and bookmarks that I've been storing for years literally. Please tell me that there's a way to get those back somehow?

I have had the following issue 5 times now over a longer period of time (Windows 10, Firefox 77.0.1 and earlier versions).

Rarely, when I want to start Firefox, I get stuck in an infinite loop. The mouse cursor changes to a "loading" cursor and starts flickering forever, trying to start Firefox. This is bad enough for my whole system to behave strangely, e.g. mouse clicks will randomly not register or release.

Upon inspecting the task manager, I find that `consent.exe` repeatedly pops up and disappears. I assume it crashes and then firefox tries to restart, repeating in an infinite loop ... I only recently found a dubious/hacky way to stop this without logging out or restarting my pc: When I forcefully rename `C:/Windows/System32/consent.exe` via console, e.g. to `.../consent.exe_`, Firefox will crash "properly" with an error message and I can rename it back.

I have no idea what this `consent.exe` does or why it is called, which makes finding the cause or fixing the issue very hard..


Details / attempted fixes

The most recent time I had this issue, it appeared after trying to open an external link while Firefox was open. Firefox then found a new update and started automatically updating to the newest version (77.0.1), before trying to open the link and giving an error message (I don't remember what it was..). To properly apply the update I closed Firefox, tried to open it again, and I started getting this infinite crash loop.

This is not the first time I had this exact same issue, but the cause seems to vary. The first time I encountered this was back when there was a buggy Windows update, which if I read my logs correctly seems to have been at the end of February 2020. As far as I can remember at this time, the issue appeared immediately after restarting my PC and updating Windows (no opening of external links involved). The only way I managed to fix it was by uninstalling that Windows update. I disabled the following updates for some months. At this time I assumed the cause was the buggy Windows update, but since then I had the same issue 4 more times. Of the times I can remember the issue appeared immediately after

  • updating windows
  •  ??
  •  ??
  • clicking an external link
  • clicking an external link > automatic Firefox update > restart Firefox > crash

Every time I got this issue I tried many things to fix it, including

  • restarting Firefox
  • restarting the PC
  • deleting my Firefox profiles in `%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles` and `%AppData%\..\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles`

none of the above worked any time I had this issue - nonetheless the issue would disappear randomly without me knowing what fixed it.

The first time when it was seemingly caused by the buggy Windows update, I even uninstalled and reinstalled all of Firefox, including deleting my Profiles in AppData. Even then, the issue persisted on a completely clean and barebone install of Firefox. However, since then it is seemingly caused by opening external links and the problem always randomly disappeared before I got to try a clean Firefox install.

The most recent time, the issue disappeared while I was trying `firefox.exe --version`, `firefox.exe --help` to find out my Firefox version (I don't know the correct commands, so nothing happened). This did not work, but when I then tried to start Firefox again, I got about 10 or so error messages on the first attempt (unfortunately, I don't remember the error message..), and then the issue was gone on the second attempt to restart Firefox.

One other random guess I have is that some of my about:config settings may be related, in particular I completely disabled any links from opening popups, be it a new tab or window. But this sounds really like a bug and I certainly do not want to undo this setting.


In the end I am not even sure if this is a Firefox or Windows issue, and I am also not sure what would be a better place to look for support. Should I submit the above as bug report?

I am also very reluctant to try to reproduce the issue since I have no idea what the fix is and spent hours on it every time.

This happens no matter what. With add-ons enabled, with ALL add-ons disabled, AND with firefox in safe-mode.

I have uploaded a video of the problem in action:

Pretty much every time I want to open that link, whether from top sites in a new tab or if I search that bookmark from the URL and click it, nothing happens. It will, however, work the second time I click it. It seems like really odd behavior.

After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.
