I'm not entirely sure what happened but I know earlier this year in as recent as July Firefox was working fine. I don't know if it was an update or what it was but now Firefox is consistently crashing multiple times a day.

There's never an error code but one of a few things happens:

  • The entire application will freeze and not let me control Firefox at all. I need to launch Task Manager to close the browser and then sometimes reset my computer to ensure it doesn't happen again.
  • With the most recent update, some of my emails on GMail (not all just some random ones) will not load in any capacity.
  • The browser will flicker white and will hide the top bar of the application so I can't close it without task manager.
  • The application will slow down and then crash with a "Do you want to send this report to Mozilla?" and I always click yes.

I have tried disabling and removing all extensions, I've tried firewall stuff, I've tried everything I can find but the browser is only getting worse in my experience. With this last update everything loads a few seconds slower than usual as well.

Is there a solution I am missing or am I doing something wrong? I am very very close to switching browsers but I'd rather not if there is a fix.

Hi,

I cannot figure out how to get Firefox to browse to my local website IMPI server maintenance website on my LAN which uses http protocol. I've tried Firefox troubleshoot mode and also setting the https redirect off - which has zero effect. Any ideas would be welcome because I'm locked out of my server IMPI now.

Please give me solution. Thanks

Was painstakingly transferring my collections of bookmarked links from my old Android phone to my new one (please fix this so entire collections can be moved as one, rather than individual components). Not halfway through yet; all was going well, and suddenly I got the message "Unable to send - Retry." Multiple tries; no further success. Nothing had changed re the wifi connection for either phone. Hoping this is something simple.

Hello all,

As the subject suggests, I’m trying to figure out how I can recover about 180 tabs I lost while the inactive tabs setting was enabled. I don’t remember Firefox crashing - I just noticed a few days ago that all my inactive tabs were gone and have since been trying to find a way to recover them, with no success.

Which is why I’m here. Is there a way to access Firefox’s iOS files? From my research, I’m thinking it’s possible info on tabs might still be stored somewhere in those files.

Thanks in advance!

Hello: Have 3 Android phones with same FF login. Spent 3 hours today creating the folders I needed and moving 200+ bookmarks on one phone into the folders. Logged in and synced. Logged in the 2nd phone and synced.

Folders were created but no bookmarks in them. Resynced the 1st phone and it emptyed the folders and copied the bookmarks from the 2nd phone's top folder back to the first phone wiping out my work to move the bookmarks into the folders.

I have used FF for many years and not seen a failure of the magnitude.

HOW IS SYNC SUPPOSED TO WORK?

Please give us back a way to manually export the bookmarks for backup and install on new phones. Samsung and Google copy processes for old to new phones are terrible. Third party apps are no better. Even a way to copy the litesql would be a major improvement.

Also question why the folder creation and moving bookmarks is so convoluted?

Why not click on a folder, click add, add name, click done.

Click on edit a bookmark, click move, present folder list, click desired folder, present OK or Decline, click your choice, click done.

This has got to work better than jumping all over the screen following the current convoluted processes.

Thanks,

Ken

I tried downloading the apk for firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/android/all/ but first I need to enter an email which I do not like having to do but ok I caved and did it.

The email I recieved from mozilla did not contain a link to the apk. only a link to https://app.adjust.com/2uo1qc?campaign=email&adgroup=mobiledownload&creative=fx-mobile-en which got blocked by my security/privacy measures.

Where can I get the apk from? preferably from f-droid. why is not firefox available on f-droid?

It keeps asking for the 6 digit code from my authenticator app which was lost when my phone crashed. Also, I can't seem to find my backup codes on any of my hard drives or SSDs on my computer (which was hacked about 6 months ago and I am still recovering from that), but have instituted more security measures. I can access Firefox fine on my computer. I think all I need to do is remove 2fa and then add 2fa back, but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
