Every single time I load F/F (especially for the first time) it takes So long to start When its started and I click on (example) on a desktop shortcut it takes so long to load After about 5 mins of going slow (like warming up) it then starts to go normal speed. I have tried all suggestions on googles...still the same Start FF ...goes so slow, and gets faster as the minutes go by

When I turn on the Windows 10 desktop computer first thing in the morning, or whenever I turn it on after it's been off, it takes several minutes to connect with Google, Yahoo, Bing. This has been happening for about three weeks. I've deleted History and cleared the cache but it doesn't prevent the same thing from happening. What else should I do?

Hi. I have been a loyal Firefox user for as long as it's been around. Today it was unresponsive. I have tried everything and it still remains unresponsive.

I felt like I should reach out because I don't want to move to Chrome, but I had no choice, since I have never used another browser. I hate to and don't want to be lost customer, but nothing worked. Scans, reinstall, etc. Nothing worked. All other programs work fine.

Its getting to the point I will have to stop using Firefox. Any suggestions.

Hello,

It is suspected that latest version of Firefox version 78.11.0esr (64-bit) is causing operathing systems to crash. I have not seen it on Windows platform as I am not using it. Platforms I am using are OSX and XUbuntu. The error occurs lingering on a site for a very long time. First it starts getting screen graphic errors like, some pixels are not being updated correctly. Then after a while screen starts to flicker, in a massive state, like the graphic processor is broken. In some cases with command key strokes one is able to kill Firefox, screen is back to normal and one can continue working. Facebook is the site that most commonly is causing error, but there are also other sites.

For the last 6 months, or more, Firefox is slow to launch and load content (until "X" icon becomes "refresh").

I've been working more diligently on this in the last few days. The first thing I did was to run full antivirus and malware scans. NOTHING was discovered. I then found some articles about the problem, the highlights of which presented 3 major points:

  • That a dense cache could be influential,
   >> I've always made it a point of clearing cache every week or 2 anyway. That
  • Add-ons could slow things down,
   >> I uninstalled mt LastPass and AdBlock Plus add-ons (the only 2 I've ever used). And finally, that
  • Security software often instigates scans on browser-related files when FF is launched.
   >> When I got started this morning, I reset my Malwarebytes Antimalware NOT to start with Windows.

I launched Firefox again after restarting the machine, and there was little improvement. It takes 45 to 60 seconds, now, from the FF icon click until the window comes up and the home page (Yahoo, for me) fully loads. Meaning that the 'stop loading "X" ' becomes the 'refresh "left-loop". That's down from 2 minutes a few days ago, but it still seems to me that that's still much longer than it should take.

Please be so kind as to share any thoughts you might have for speeding Firefox up for me.

Thank you!

I'm running version v92.0 (64) on ubuntu 21.04. Firefox would crash upon opening when signed in. It would stay active enough for me to disable the extensions & themes. After doing that it still crashed. I tried going into Troubleshooting mode and it would still crash. I went into Troubleshooting mode and did a refresh. It was still crashing. Finally I signed out of my mozilla sync account and the browser has stayed active long enough for me to type this report.

I've submitted all crash reports in about:crashes, and I'm not really sure what to do next.

Perhaps a local version of the Mozilla Sync profile has been corrupted? if so, is there a way to remove it and pull down the "sync"ed version from Mozilla's servers? What if the version on Mozilla's server's has been corrupted? should I back up the local profile (wherever it is) before removing?

I hope I've given enough information. Please let me know if you need further, more specific information.

I just installed Thunderbird on a new Windows 10 PC yesterday. Everything worked, for a while.

When I went to use TB later at night I could not open TB & got a message it was already running but not responding. There were 2 instances showing in Task Manager but I could not close them. Sometimes when I tried a message came up saying "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied". I had to power off the PC to clear out TB.

TB was working again but just to be safe I uninstalled and reinstalled it. And it continued to work after that. Until this morning, and now the same problem.

In addition, when I went to use Firefox it now had the same problem. FF was installed several days ago but there never was a problem till now. There were several instances of FF in Task Manager and I could end most of them, but there was one where I got the "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied".

Now the PC was stuck with TB and FF that could not be closed, and I had to power off the PC to clear them out.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be appreciated. Thanks

Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.
