Opening links in any desktop app to open up in Nightly is broken for me since a few months, I didn't really change anything on my side. The bug report so far has been ignored, and this is a pretty major breakage. Does anyone have an idea what I could check out on my system to get this fixed or provide info for the bug so that somebody actually looks at it? EDIT: Please note Nightly initially launches fine, SO THERE IS NO PROBLEM OPENING THE PROFILE. There is also no problem with a previous instance being stuck preventing the new one from launching - I don't want to launch a new instance, I want to open a link, and I can interact with the running instance just fine and it's definitely not stuck.

This is what I get 50% of the time I try to open a link:

"Close Firefox" "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile."

(While firefox is perfectly happily running.)

xdg-open https://same-url-iclicked

works. So that makes it even weirder. My system is a boring Fedora 32 desktop, and I didn't change anything I could think of when this suddenly broke.

Here is my two months old ticket that so far went ignored: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1645038

Please, I have read your articles, started in safe mode and this freezing continues. I am unable to type a complete sentence without freezing. This happens in Outlook email, or the search bar.

This does not happen in Word or other programs only in Firefox. This started after the latest update to version 79.0. I am a simple user and not a tech person. I’ve used Firefox as my browser for years. Perhaps this is a conflict with the new Microsoft update version 2004 home version. Maybe they want to force to change to Edge.

I have a print screen of the task manger showing usage. But not sure if that will help. Please help me, this is so frustrating. I’m tying this in Word to cut and paste into your box. I tried to upload two pdf's would not allow.

Over the past 48 hours there have been at least ten breaches of my account. At first I assumed it was a breach of PayPal when someone used it to purchase a $3000 laptop on Newegg. I figured it couldn't be Firefox because Mozilla is pretty good with that sorta thing and because the only fraud was via my PayPal account. Well ... just over an hour ago someone attempted to purchase a $2200 laptop with my Amazon account using a completely different payment method, and I received several emails in both my Gmail and Protonmail regarding several accounts which I did not create. Firefox is the only browser I use, and I have passwords stored in it; I'll have to change all of them and remove them to a thumb drive. But Firefox appears to have a data breach ongoing right now. I can share screenshots if necessary but I will have to redact personal information and that will of course take time.
