I have used Firefox for several years and have been very happy with it. However, in the last few/several weeks, I am finding that when I click on a link to go to another screen, it either takes forever or does not work at all.

What steps should I take to help with this problem? I am using Firefox 78.0.2 (64Bit).

I noticed a few months back that Firefox quantum 65.0.2 (64 bit) uploads are extremely slow. A 186kb image that is uploaded instantly in Chrome or Firefox developer edition (65.0b11 64 bit) takes about 30-45 seconds in quantum, a 900kb image jumps to 14% when I hit upload, then super slowly climbs up by 2%-4% at a time, finally finishing the upload 3 minutes later, and by the time the upload finishes the google captcha I entered has expired and it tells me to retry the upload. The same 900kb image uploads in 2 seconds on chrome and firefox dev. Also some websites like twitch.tv are super slow to load, not even a video stream, the homepage takes about 20 seconds to load, then another 30 seconds for the video to start playing, while the site loads and starts playing the homepage video within a few seconds on chrome and firefox dev. I've tried everything, launching firefox in safe mode, reinstalling firefox and trying with no plugins, switching between system proxy settings and no proxy. Is there anything else I can try? Super annoying having to launch chrome every time I need to upload something.

Thanks

If I hit a link in Facebook and it is a YouTube video, Firefox goes unresponsive and I have to open the task manager and close Firefox. This happens even if it opens in a new window. I can't even open YouTube on its own without having this happen, can you tell me why? I do have three links that I have bookmarked that are YouTube videos and they play fine, but nothing else.

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

Allowed Firefox to download latest update to Firefox on 11/18/18. When I started up Firefox on 11/19/18, my PC would not respond to any inputs (running Windows 7 Pro) and my only option was to power down my PC to recover from the Firefox update hangup. What can I do next to recover Firefox and my hundreds of bookmarks I stored under Firefox?

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

I am running 59.0b13 (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with MacOS 10.13.3

I develop a Shopify app and anytime I try to login to a Shopify stores admin panel. Firefox locks up and spins the CPU all the way up. I then have to force quit.

To replicate go to any Shopify store and add "/admin" to the domain.

I have a brand new computer, an HP Elite, running fully patched Windows 10. I am having the same problem over and over. When browsing in Firefox (the latest version - fully patched) the computer suddenly locks up. I get the spinning wheel. After I wait a while it might unlock but until it does all applications, Outlook, Word, everything that is open, is unavailable. Here is my latest Event Viewer message. (scroll down please)

Log Name: Application Source: Application Hang Date: 1/16/2018 2:47:59 PM Event ID: 1002 Task Category: (101) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: MIKEW10ELITE Description: The program firefox.exe version 57.0.4.6577 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

Process ID: 1438
Start Time: 01d38ef36bb52ed8
Termination Time: 6

I have gotten other messages in Event Viewer when the lock ups occur. They are this: Log Name: Application Source: Application Hang Date: 1/16/2018 10:03:42 AM Event ID: 1002 Task Category: (101) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: MIKEW10ELITE Description: The program svchost.exe version 10.0.16299.15 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

While the lockup is in place I might try to click something. Then I'll get the message in the attached graphic. Clicking "Do you want to end this process" with OK rarely does anything. This whole deal hoses my computer completely and forces me to reboot.

I've worked with Microsoft. The first time I did a complete reinstall of Windows 10. The second time I tried removing services with msconfig. Nothing is working.

Is this a Firefox problem?

Thank you.

usually happens playing videos on facebook or clicking on links to dailykos headlines. I have to turn the computer off entirely bypassing the normal shut down proceedure in order to undo the freezing. When I restart the computer it goes back to the freezing place and gets stuck again. There was a brief flash that said a webpage was causing the problem in yellow at the top of the screen; it lasted about 3 sec and then disappeared. after 3 times of trying the normal shut down after restarting my computer required a rather lengthy disc scan (3 indices) where many files were deleted and restored. I would like to continue using firefox but I am confused about why this is happening. What is my computer doing while freezing if indeed it is a webpage that is causing this to happen. I used malwarebytes anti virus and microsoft security essentials scans regularly and use good internet habits. Is this somehow related to the recent Intel invasion? So I just got a message about an installed plugin, Shockwave Flash 28.0 r0. I guess this means I should deactivate it?

Hello. I am experiencing constant BSOD crashes since Firefox updated to Quantum. It happends shortly after seemingly unrelated actions: opening a link, clicking video to play, or even attempting to close the app. Turning hardware acceleration off didn't solve the problem, although my PC is Sony VAIO laptop with combined Intel/Nvidia graphics which (probably) may complicate things. Resetting Firefox didn't help either. O/s is Windows 7. I also have KAV.

Occasionally, any piece of complex software will stop responding, and need to be forcibly shut down. I had such an event today when the right-click (context) menus and title-bar menus wouldn't appear. However, since upgrading to FF 57, I now see about 6 Firefox tasks and 6 firefox.exe processes in the Task Manager (Windows 10).

I like the feature of being able to restart Firefox (after killing it) and have my previous session restored, but the processes aren't really distinguishable in Task Manager, so I don't know which one to end/kill. I had to kill a few of them today before I stumbled upon the "main" process and Firefox disappeared. Can you help me to identify the main process for next time?

For the past few months (it's October 2017) after starting the browser I can open 3 tabs tops before the browser slows down incredibly, things load slower, videos stop and start, ads don't close quickly. Eventually, 3 tabs or more tabs, the whole thing comes to a halt and freezes and I have to restart. I've cleared my history. Doesn't help. I don't know what to do. Thanks for any help.
