When I go to a site that use Flash. Firefox load like 20% of the Flash file. Then it freeze Firefox. And Firefox doesn't crash. This ends in a full computer freezing. My mouse stopping working, my keyboard stopping working. I need to restart my computer every time. Because nothing is functionally.

I have tried other web-browsers and those doesn't have this problem. It works, but not in Firefox.

Information: Windows 10 Pro x64 - version 1909 ( OS Build: 18363.657 ) Firefox 73.0.1

When accessing my server using a ftp:// protocol URL, the timestamps displayed for all files are incorrect. For instance, if a file was created at 12:01 PM EST today, verified by logging into the server directly, then Firefox will display it as 7:01 AM EST. Note that both the server and my browser are in EST.

No other FTP client displays the time this way, so I don't think it's something wrong with the server. The only thing I can think of is that the server is not supplying any timezone information, so Firefox thinks that the server is on UTC which it then converts to EST for me. However, this is an incorrect assumption.

The server is running pure-ftpd on OpenBSD, if that helps.

I've done a lot of trial and error. Firefox has no issue until I log into my google account, usually for youtube. The moment I do it starts a memory leak that slowly builds. Around 1.6GB is when it starts having problems that affect my computer. Restarting firefox solves this until I log back into google. I've tested for days not logging in with zero memory build up until I log in and it immediately starts to climb.

When I print from Chrome or Brave browsers from our local online newpaper app, I get one print dialog with the item I've asked to print shown in the preview. Perfect. When I print from Firefox I get the same thing, but on top of that is another print dialog previewing a blank page that I have to get rid of before I can get to the actual print dialog I want.

So I have to "cancel" the bogus, top dialog that wants to print a blank page, and then the print dialog that I want is available.

Obviously I want to get rid of the first print dialog that wants to print a blank page.

I've gone through the Mozilla "Fix printing problems in Firefox" page, which includes taking all statements with arguments starting with "print_" out of prefs.js in my profile, and that didn't help at all. Exactly the same extra print dialog after doing that.

So I really have no idea why Firefox is doing this when I ask it to print, any ideas how to troubleshoot or fix?

Thanks!

Everything works on other device, but on this clean install of a Windows machine, I can't get to download any file from Google Drive. I've reinstalled Firefox, downgraded the version, deleted cookies multiple times, disabled all extensions, went into incognito, nothing works!

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0g-70-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

From network tab, FF is constantly doing these two requests:

Did Firefox 74 introduce a minimum windows size? Can it be disabled?

Hi,

I like to work with side-by-side Firefox windows, with one of the windows being far slimmer (horizontally) than the other. Since I updated to Firefox 74.0 today, I can't resize the windows as I like to do. I can resize them, but it's like there's a minimum fixed size to what I can resize it to and then it locks and doesn't go any slimmer from there (maybe so the browser controls don't overlap?). That fixed size is far too big for my use case, i.e. I absolutely need it slimmer. I'm not entirely sure if the previous Firefox version contained a fixed minimum size, but if it did, it was much smaller (it allowed controls to overlap, which wasn't a problem for me)

Is there a setting that I can change in Firefox 74 so that I can make the windows as slim as I require again?
