So I generally keep Firefox up to date, letting the system manage itself, but this time I have had to disable this update. When I update, either through the automatic updates, or even from a fresh install of 75 (or beta 76) the browser starts, I see the lovely new address bar, albeit blank, and the browser just hangs right there. I can type in the nifty new bar, but nothing happens, no browsing to a site, no opening configs, nothing.

I have this issue on windows 7, 8 and 10 machines, so it's not an OS issue.

When an update does happen it chews up my profiles too and I have to end up rebuilding those. Only when I go back to 74 does Firefox work again.

I'm at a bit of a loss here.

I have downloaded the "latest version" of Firefox to my Mac which is running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.3. After 7-10 days Firefox will not "open". I then uninstall it, and reinstall it. Again it works for 7-10 days then will not open at all. I have gone through these install / uninstall processes at least 10 times. Yet after 7-10 days Firefox will not open. What is causing this, and how can I keep Firefox working continuously on my Mac? Thank You. WA

P.S. - I am sending this question from a Windows 10 computer because I cannot open Firefox on my Mac.

Hello, The day before Firefox just stopped working, I can start the program but its completely disfunctional. Menu bars roll down, but if I click on anything, nothing happens, like if the buttons were dead. External buttons like "open file", "save page" do pop up, but not internal ones, like Troubleshooting info, probably because they would also open as a Tab, which doesnt function. I can type into the search bar, shows the url, even seems to have access to search suggestion from Google, but nothing happens at all. I tried everything I could find, reset Firefox through safe mode (also doesnt work better), completely deleted and reinstalled everything, including all data folders, checked my Antivirus (Norton... yes, could be bad), but I even deinstalled antivirus. Also tried "netsh winsock reset" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1021896 Im out of options. Thanks for Help!

How it happened: 1. I installed Anaconda(python3.7) and Visual Studio 2015 (to get the required C++ for TensorFlow) 2. Decided to uninstall Anaconda and Visual Studio 2015 and restarted which is when firefox gave the error vcruntime140_1. dll was not found. 3. I downloaded and installed vc_redist.x64 and restarted 4. Firefox does not give an error anymore but no websites appear (just bank screen). I can see the firefox dropdown tab for options, but clicking options does nothing


What I've tried: 1. Uninstalled firefox using an uninstaller that removes residual files 2. Re-installing firefox 3. Running firefox in safemode and clicking 'restore' as well as trying it in safemode


Chrome is working with no issues, but I prefer firefox.

As the question says. I updated my Mac (2018 MacBook Pro) to the most recent OS (Catalina), I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox like 6 times, cleared my trash and any and all Firefox files, and deleted all profiles, made a new default one, and then deleted that one when it still wouldn't start, and restarted my laptop more than once. I cannot seem to get it to start no matter what I do! I've tried every fix I can find online. Every time I try to launch Firefox, it appears in the dash for a second and immediately shuts down. Trying to start in Safe Mode doesn't work either. Firefox used to work, but then I force quit it *once* because I was quitting all applications I wasn't using. Now it won't work at all no matter what I do. How do I fix this?

Alright, so I've tried installing a previous version, deleting all files in Local, LocalLow, Roaming, and Users/Program Files related to firefox, even deleting registry keys, but every time I try to use firefox I just get a flickering loading circle on my mouse. I open task manager, and see that firefox is in there, and constantly opening and closing new processes on itself. I try to kill the process and cannot as whatever one I'm trying to close is already dead and a new one takes its place.

I was on nightly and today I guess my friendly IT admin pushed a system policy that blocked the firefox binary from updating itself. Since then, I have been stuck in this restart required loop.

No matter what version of firefox I launch, I get prompted to restart because firefox was updated in the background and it's basically stuck like that.

I have disabled the antivirus service completely, deleted my nightly installation, purged my regular installation through apt, installed nightly at a different path, deleted .mozilla etc.

I keep getting these errors when I launch firefox from any installation in a terminal:

Both Firefox and Chromium-based browsers are laggy (but in different ways) on Linux but not on Windows on the same computer. I have done GPU and CPU benchmark tests on my PC and they seem to perform better on Linux than on Windows.

I have tried different distros and I seem to be having the same issues. Both of these browsers have hardware acceleration enabled. I have tried booting into the LTS kernel as well, still the same issue persists. I have tried different DEs and I have even used Wayland instead of X11 and there doesn't seem to be a difference. I have an Intel Integrated HD graphcs card and my Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2 in 1.

I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Hi. I use Firefox from many years. Today I was trying to inspect a my web page which looks strange in my Firefox for Android but I just can't. In my desktop I have Firefox 73.0.1 and in my Android phone I have Firefox 68.5.0. If I try to connect I get a message which tells to update Firefox from 68.5 to 71.0 (minimum supported version) but I can't find this version anywhere. I have installed Firefox Nightly for Developer in my phone but now the problem is that the version is too recent... What should I do?

I am having a similar ongoing issue with Firefox refusing to open, and none of the fixes I've seen in this forum have worked. When clicking the icon it bounces once and then disappears from the dock. Honestly, this started happening about August 2018, and in my troubleshooting decided to give the Developer edition a try, and for some reason that one worked so I stuck with it.

Shortly thereafter (a week or two) whenever I closed down the Mac, Firefox Dev wouldn't re-open. Deleting and reinstalling would work, but I'd have to re-set all my settings, re-activate the theme, etc., and all the browsing history would be lost. So, since then I would rarely shut it down.

A few days ago I had to shut the Mac down completely, but this time Firefox Dev wouldn't open after re-installing. Oddly, I tried regular Firefox again as a solution, and it opened this time. I tested it out by shutting the Mac down completely, then restarting, and it retained all of the settings! I was really glad to once again be able to shut down my laptop at the end of the day without the headache of having to reinstall and re-set everything.

Then this morning, boom - back to the same nonsense, except now it won't open at all. Neither the regular FF or the Developer edition will work. I've done clean uninstalls to see if that was the problem, as in: removed them from the Applications folder, removed them from the Downloads folder, removed the /Firefox folder from user/Library/Application Support/, and emptying the Trash.

I saw in one Support post to delete the fbplugin file, 'as that had been causing Firefox to crash'. The closest I found to an 'fbplugin' file was a bundle-config.1 file, which contained 'fbplugin' throughout the file code numerous times. I renamed it temporarily, but didn't delete it. That didn't help the non-opening problem either.

I also tried installing Firefox v 71, same result as the others.

Keep in mind after attempting all of these solutions of deleting, reinstalling, changing file names, etc., I did a complete shutdown and restart. Also, I have not downloaded, updated, or changed anything since last week's phenomenon of regular Firefox beginning to work again. So I'm completely stumped and would appreciate any help. I'm currently running macOS Catalina 10.15.3. TIA.
