I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

Suggestion

Dedicated home button

A few years since I last used Firefox on Android, now I'm back and I'm missing a dedicated home button on the toolbar/ address bar like the one on Opera and Chrome.

Getting from an active page back to the speed dial is not one tap but three taps, which doesn't seem to be a very efficient way to do things?

Google search tells me I'm not alone wishing for a dedicated home button on Firefox Android so perhaps something to consider seriously in a not so distant future...?

Fedora 31 box, 5.8.13 distro kernel, distro firefox

I play online poker at https://www.playwpt.com/ With firefox 81.0.1, my entire computer will be frozen/unresponsive within 30 sec of playing. I revert to 80.0.1, I can play as usual. I haven't seen other problems with other sites.

I've had a similar issue before, I think it was the 78-79 update, something about paging getting stuck, something something.

Anybody else run into this? Fix coming?

HELP!!

Comcast keeps dropping my home network IP address ONLY when I am using the Firefox browser.

When I open the browser to access the internet (any site) within a few minutes or less the home network IP address is dropped by Comcast and I lose the internet. This does NOT happen when I am using Chrome.

My laptop wi-fi can still see - and connect to - other wi-fi networks in the vicinity and if I turn off the wi-fi for a few seconds and then turn it back on again connection is restored.

I have raised this issue with Comcast four (4) times and they have not addressed the issue, so my choice now is: stop using Firefox, keep turning the wi-fi off and on again or..........?

Can someone please tell me what is going on here and ideally how to to fix this issue - thank you.

Just installed 81.0.2 update, did not install cleanly, had to reset. All privacy & security settings were wiped. Redid everything, am now unable to block videos on news sites, which I had done previously. Can block autoplay with following config settings -

media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages - false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled - true media.autoplay.block-webaudio - true media.autoplay.blocking_policy - 1 media.autoplay.default - 5

Can no longer block videos from loading. How to do this in 81.0.2?

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

I rebooted my computer after it crashed, due to what appeared to be a hard drive error (at first when I restarted the computer I got the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed)". Once I managed to get the PC started again I opened Firefox and found out that all of my saved passwords were gone as well as nearly all of my browsing history, which goes back over a year. Strangely enough, not everything is deleted - there are still several webpages that I visited in the past that still show up in the browser history, especially from the last few months. Not only that, but when I scroll through list of web results, webpages that I previously visited are still highlighted in purple, even though many of them do not show up in the much reduced browser history. Does this mean that the remainder of the browsing history is still somewhere? The Firefox profile is the same one as before the crash.

Thank you!

I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Mac Book. I have never changed my default browser from Google and if I go into preferences it says my default browser is still Google. Despite this, about 2 weeks ago all my searches started being in Yahoo instead of Google and it is getting really annoying now. I can't change it to any other browsers or back to Google, it's just stuck on Yahoo.

I have used Bing with no problems for years now, recently it has been giving a banner at the top whenever I use it stating that a website is slowing the browser, then options stop or wait. I have never had this before. It comes up on every page that is opened in Bing. I have waited and never seen a web page open or anything. Also, none of the functions on the Bing page are working. I cannot click the three bar link for more options, change the safe search option, or sign in to my Microsoft account. All these links are dead. When on a page I cannot use the filter link. I also cannot click on anything at all while the banner notice is up. I have tried to get help form Microsoft and they were unable to do anything. They suggested using their browser Edge. They suggested emptying the cache, which I did with no change, and they suggested uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it. I do not want to do this because it will destroy al my formatting and lose lots of links, etc... as it has every other time I have done this. I hope someone here will be able to help me. I prefer Bing search engine to all the others. I have tried Google and DuckDuckGo and they do not work for me, or find what I am searching for as well as Bing has. The others seem to be more for purchasing and not searching and so I do not like or trust them. Using Windows 10 on a Desk top PC, and had no trouble with Bing until the last week or so.

I can't play anything on Bandcamp. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or an OSX problem or a Bandcamp problem, but hoped it might ring bells with someone here. Been going on for a good couple of months (but I was away for a chunk of that so just getting back to it now). Bandcamp is the best of the streaming services and the fairest to musicians, so it deeply bothers me I can't play anything on it. I just click play, the pending wheel goes round as it fails to play track after track, and then it stops. I had a look on their help but no help there (at the time). I'm running Mojave (OS 10.14.16) on a 2018 mac mini.
