Started yesterday March 1st. Linux Mint Firefox 86 Brother HLL 2300 printer

Was working fine day before. Went to print and it stops after (it appears) to start sending to the printer. Pops up an error message. Run diagnose and it returns with "The printers state message is "Filter Failed"

Prints fine with any other browser of software.

I have tired all the reset printers instructions on here. Including editing the config file.

Hi:

Just installed Firefox on Windows 10. When the installation finishes, the browser window shows two tabs, both crashed. Trying to access any URL also results in a crashed tab.

If I quit Firefox at that point, then attempt to restart the program, I'll get the spinning circle for a few moments, then nothing -- it just won't run again. The installer file will run again, but I'll get the same results.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Gregg

On Firefox, I am getting this yellow bar stating, "A web page is slowing down your browser." I am getting this frequently everyday. After I click on "Stop it", it disappears, but Firefox remains frozen and I have to close it, most of the time through the task manager. I have refreshed Firefox, but the message still keeps on appearing, most of the time when I am on AOL. This problem is making Firefox useless for me. I have also read similar experiences from many other Firefox users. Why can Firefox not fix it? It is not even listed in the Firefox problems and solutions.

Hi everyone,

My Windows 10 Firefox updated to 86, and I noticed a change in how some jQuery Mobile controls are rendering.

If you go here and scroll down to the 'Checkboxes' section: https://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.4.5/forms/

You'll see that the control group is no longer rendering with a block display style. Previous versions, along with all versions of Chrome, Edge, etc, have them taking up the entire container width. I have attached a few screenshots for convenience.

I can work around this in my product, but this may be a canary in the coal mine of many other display differences. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them.

Thanks and have a great day!

Yesterday I was using Firefox normally (browsing, Discord, etc.). Today when I opened it, it wouldn't load any page. If I type something in the adress bar it will auto-complete or show suggestions based on google, but when I hit enter, nothing happens. It doesn't even try to load anything. I also can't go into options. When I click on the options button, nothing happens. I am not running in any compatibility modes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't help. I am not using any add-ons. I have done several virus searches. Other browsers work fine. I'm running out of ideas now, that's why I'm doing this post.

Hello,

As the subject states, in the last few days I have been experiencing this very annoying phenomenon. I can start youtube, pick any video from recommended or my subscriptions, but aftery using the search bar to look up anything else, the whole browser freezes for at least 30 seconds but usually more. This started on maybe Sunday. Any tips? I have hardware acceleration disabled, but tried it both ways. I have cleared cache/history/cookies. Haven't tried a refresh yet and wouldn't want to if there's any other solution. Any tips to fix this?

Hi,

For the last 3 days I have been receiving the same pop up about a calendar event I am not even aware of and it will not go away no matter what I click on. It just keeps coming back and I can't use Thunderbird. I am concerned about uninstalling Thunderbird and reinstalling since I don't know if my email history et al will be there upon reinstall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I'm on w7-64. I updated to FF86, and there were obvious problems with it, so I installed 84. Works fine, except that now I'm noticing twitter and facebook get slower over time. I didn't notice that before reinstallation of 84.

I just created a new profile and refreshed. Will monitor. But what is the usual issue when firefox is doing this? Basically its not releasing memory correct?

I tried useing Firemin (https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/firemin/), and there was a noticable difference with twitter and firefox. But I'd rather just fix the issue instead of using a bandaid if I can.

During the reinstallation of FF84, I did delete a few registry entries (I followed a page like this to do it (https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-email/164280-remove-firefox-completely-then-reinstall.html)). But I don't know how that could effect releasing memory.

I'll keep you updated, but does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

Two updates ago my system now uses 100% of my CPU and memory on occasion. Norton tells me that a website is slowing down my system. When I go to task manager Firefox is open 5 times and is driving my system to the limit so I have to end the task. I also have clicked to read an article and my system halts, all I see is the reload and an X flashing in the left hand top and I have to end the task and it also has my computer maxed out and Firefox is open 5 times as well with CPU and memory at 100%. I also don't have any other app open.

I've been using Bitwarden as well as Firefox's Lockwise. I've encountered a difficulty with Bitwarden that Bitwarden says is due to my use of Lockwise. I've also seen that Lockwise is more automatic that Bitwarden--it enters passwords uncalled. Yet Mozilla recommends Bitwarden. My question is: Is there any advantage I can get from using Bitwarden that I can't get from Lockwise alone?

I am receiving an error messages on my Thunderbird email account. The message reads "login to server imap.telstra.com with username (my email address) failed". This is my primary email address. I have a secondary address that is still working fine. Have checked the imap server settings and they are all the same as my secondary account. I have gone through the troubleshooting suggestions with no success. I am wondering if I reinstall the program will I lose all my saved messages? Is there anything else I can do? Cheers Paul H.

Some websites like to hijack your keyboard shortcuts. (For example in forums, ⌘-C, ⌘-V, ⌘-K, ⌘-L)

In Firefox, you can hold ⌘+Shift while clicking a link to open it in a new background tab. I recently encountered a website (Duckduckgo) which hijacks this as well.

Is there a way to block website from redirecting your keyboard shortcuts. It's really intrusive and I hate it.

Thanks.
