This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

Firefox crashes and restarts my computer all the time.

What happens: Suddenly the screen just goes black and my PC boots up again. Like the power was cut for a second.

When does it happen: It started in the last quarter of last year. It happens randomly when firefox is open and multiple times a day! It does not matter whether there is heavy load on the system or just few pages are open and I'm not even doing anything. I think it has happened only once while gaming (but the firefox was open that time). And generally with heavy workloads (gaming/solidworks) the PC runs just fine. Since it started I have done two clean installs of Win 10, "refreshed" the firefox, tried disabling all extensions, disabled hardware acceleration. The crash still happens.

The crash: The windows event has two errors after reboot: Event ID 6008 and 41. The crash happens so suddenly, there are no crash logs when windows boots up. It seemed so odd that I started to suspect my PSU is broken. BUT THEN I used edge browser and my computer didn't crash for a WEEK.

I miss using firefox to sync my stuff between mac, android and windows without having to log into big corporation account. But since starting to use firefox again, the crashes are back just as before.

Any Ideas how to fix this?

I keep having problems with Firefox not loading certain pages despite that Microsoft Edge works fine. I've cleared my cache and cookies, tried disabling my firewall, and also tried Safe/troubleshooting mode and the problem was still there. Facebook Messenger and Google Hangouts are two of the ones that regularly don't work (and sometimes Submittable, Outlook, and Google Docs), but sometimes I can just refresh the page half a dozen times and then it works. I moved and switched internets two weeks ago and it may have started then (or a few days after). I also tried turning off the proxy and disabling Ipv6.

My comp: Windows 10, 64-bit, HP laptop, new in December 2019. Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3200U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx.

My website runs NGINX with PageSpeed module. It's fronted by a CDN. When I visit the homepage on Edge and Chrome, most of the images are webp and yet on Firefox they are jpg.

My Firefox version is 88.0 64 bit for Windows 10.

Does anyone know why this is happening as visitors to my site in Firefox are getting a slower response

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.

Hello,

I am getting a McAfee pop up notification and I have identified the site name and would like to add it to the notifications settings to block it but I cannot figure out how to add a site manually to that list. There are no options on the notification settings to allow for a manual site addition. I am on FireFox version 88.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro.

I have also tried searching to see how to remove what is probably malware and cannot find anything. I do not have any McAfee products on my laptop.

Sincerely,

As Firefox doesn't allow you to prevent updates, is there a way to get the HTTPS switches working, or is this another introduced bug we are supposed to put up with? If I attempt to access my router using 192.168.1.1 Firefox automatically changes the address to https://192.168.1.1. Guess what you morons: NONE OF MY ROUTERS USE HTTPS AND CANNOT BE ACCESSED! Instead I now use Edge which allows what I enter to be used and gives me access. Another reason to dump this crap. Why is it that each and every time I am forced to update: I don't get a choice, I get another reason not to use Firefox. If you charged for this crap the developers would have been sacked long ago. Please don't insult my intelligence by pointing me Privacy & Settings because none of the options make any difference. So when can we expect to get working software?

My computer crashed and when I openend firefox, all my tabs were gone, about 140, it was impossible to open recently closed tabs or previous session. I found about 20 files that might contain all the tabs but none of them are opened properly in the scrounger at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html When I try to export it uncompressed, i get the message that the context of the box does not look like json, that's true because the box is empty after opening all 20 files. Even though one file even is 1.16mb. Does anyone has other advice on at least getting the url's from the file? You would expect at least one file to work right?

My money program uses an importer to download files directly (rather than saving to desktop & manually importing. The institutions' choices always include OFX, QFX, and QIF. The Application list in Options lists OFX -- in two places-- and QFX. Both are assigned to the importer.

No matter what format I choose, I have to browse for the importer (several clicks). To check, I downloaded account information for several accounts held with the same institution, cycling through those 3 formats. Same result each time. "Always do this" is checked and OFX and QFX are assigned to the importer as you can see in the screenshot.

Shouldn't FF be adding QIF when I download activity in that format? I certainly didn't add OFX or QFX manually! And can anyone explain why "Use importer" is broken?

TIA mm
