Attempting to open Firefox in any way pulls up a white box as if it's about to open for a split second before immediately closing. Refreshing, uninstalling/reinstalling, and attempting to boot to Safe Mode all pull up the same result.

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

''Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.''

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. … (Lesen Sie mehr)

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

I use firefox bookmarks to store my biomedical research data which over the last 12 years has grown to a large size with places.sqlite around 60 Mb and bookmarks.html about 75 Mb.

Sometime ago the bookmarks.html file suddenly almost doubled in size to some 130 Mb (I automatically back up/export my bookmarks as a bookmarks.html file) and places.sqlite to some 70 Mb. Unfortunately I only discovered the issue sometime after it happened.

According to Places Maintenance, which I run relatively frequently, the bookmarks data base comprises:

Table moz_places has 77666 records Table moz_bookmarks has 230886 records

The bloated bookmarks.html file is needlessly taking up a lot of backup space . I can only assume that somehow one of the very large files was inadvertently copied into some other folder. Given the vast number of folders/subfolders it is a virtually impossible task to open each one to find where such a large file has been put to cause such bloat. Unfortunately when I open the bookmarks.html file there is no folder structure visible so it is not possible to sort folders by size which would greatly help to find the offending folder.

Although I am quite useful at finding my way around browser technology I have no sqlite database skill. I have looked at the places.sqlite using DB Bowser for Sqlite and SqliteManager extension in the hope that I could figure out whether it is possible to identify folders and hopefully sort them by size to find where the misplaced large folder is located. But no luck it is all greek to me.

I would be most grateful if anyone can offer suggestions/guidance on any possible way to identify folders and to sort them by size from places.sqlite or any other way (I have considered exporting the bookmarks from places.sqlite to xlsl into Excel but it does not seem to offer any way to search for/sort folders by size.

I am on Win10 Pro.

Here's how I discovered this issue.

PayPal has a page on which the user selects a method for having money withdrawn from one's PayPal account to one's bank. I've found that this page's "Next" button works correctly (that is, it loads the page on which the user would then indicate the amount to be transferred) on Firefox 40.0.2, but it works incorrectly (that is, it only underlines the word "Next" and does not load a new page) on Firefox 52.9.0 and Firefox 87.0.2. (My internet access in each case is dialup.)

After pursuing various leads on the possible cause, it occurred to me to inspect the page source for the "withdraw" page for each of those versions of Firefox. And I discovered that the page source displayed by Firefox 40.0.2 contained content that was absent from the page source displayed by either of the other two Firefox versions. Some of this content appeared to define a function that returns content to the server when "Next" was clicked. If true, this could certainly account for why clicking the button didn't do what it should.

I noticed that the page source uses as many as 12 nested levels of <div>-</div> elements, which seems counter to the advice I read at an HTML standards page (at whatwg.org). But I don't know whether this could be a factor in the behavior I described.

I've copied the page source for each Firefox version and pasted them into text files, but I wasn't sure it would be appropriate to post them publicly. I would be glad to provide them offline.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.

Playing youtube video on Firefox has become a hazard. The power consumption sharply rises whenever a video is plying AND (specifically) when the this youtube tab is the one open (current). As soon as I move to another tab and let the video continue playing this problem disappears and resource consumption looks normal. Then if I go back to the youtube tab then it spikes again sharply.

It has been like this for a week or couple of days now.

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?
