Hi there,

This issue reports to a desktop computer with 8 CPUs and 24 Gb of RAM, which pretty much puts aside any resource constraints. Ever since Firefox was updated to version 49 the browsing experience has become increasingly difficult with a relevant lag on pretty much every task: . opening a new tab . loading/reloading a web page . scrolling down a web page . entering text (takes almost 1 second for a character to appear) . deleting text . using menus (e.g. takes about 1 second for the context menu highlight to move up/down to the next item) . great reduction in frame rate when playing videos (actually, I no longer play video on Firefox 49)

I have tried various things to stop the lagging: . restart Firefox . disable/uninstall extensions (now down to just 4) . disable/uninstall plugins (now down to just 3) . update plugins

But the lagging prevails.

I use pretty much the same web pages as I did with previous Firefox versions, but only with version 49 am I experience this lagging.

Thank you.

How do I make the toolbars smaller? Since upgrading to the latest version, they are twice as tall as they used to be. The text in them is still a reasonable size but the toolbars take up twice the vertical space they used to. This has nothing to do with the size of the page I'm viewing so Ctrl+ or Ctgrl- has no effect.

Thanks for any help. Attached is a screen shot showing the wasted space at the top of my screen with the new toolbars.

I have a newly installed Lubuntu desktop adn when I start Firefox after about 5 to 10 minutes the system slows to the point where the cursor moves intermittently. The problem only occurs when I open the Firefox application.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and the issue still occurs.

Is there any known issues with Firefox running on Lubuntu?

My Firefox installation on Ubuntu 20.04 does not load or render any page, nothing happens when I enter an address.

I have already rebooted multiple times, purged Firefox through aptitude, deleted all files related to Firefox (profiles, the complete .mozilla folder in home, everything else) and reinstalled as suggested in various support platforms. I have started Firefox in safe mode as well.

As far as I can tell the problem started after I used "another" Firefox through my universities Citrix service to be able to access their library catalogue. I had to symbolically link all of the files in the Firefox certificate folder to that of the Citrix client for that client to work, although I've since removed those links as well and it did nothing.

I am really pulling my hairs over this as Firefox is heavily integrated in my workflow and I don't want to switch to Chrome but I also don't want to completely reinstall my laptop as that would mean completely setting up my work environment again too.

Hello. I had naively let my computer do an upgrade of Mozilla. Guess what. All data gone. History, bookmarks, add-ons. I didn't have a back-up of bookmarks, well, at least not recent.

How can I get them back? I've spent a lot of time with setting up Firefox so it would be comfortable to me, I've spent my time in it, and now it's all gone and I don't even remember the name of some add-ons I used to use.

So I am not completely nubcakes, so i have ran apt to get update builds and build-trees. Still doesn't fix things. It mostly crashes with Facebook and Youtube. But that is mostly what I use FF for. It has even crashed repeatedly on just about:restoresession. I think it is a video problem. I have ubuntu 16.04 LTS but everything is up to date. Doesn't matter what is loaded or not, see about crashing just on restore session with a single tab!

The problem still happens in safe-mode, so there is that checked out. The reports don't appear to have much in common.

Thanks,

These are the crash reports just from the last month:

It's moot, though! -In November, I suddenly stopped being able to receive. I've had their tech people help me set up as either POP3 or IMAP and neither works. After an hour (over two hours yesterday) they always end up saying it's Mozilla's problem. -I've uninstalled Thunderbird several times, including deleting hidden files that contained remnants. -I usually get the message ""Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account." -Other attempts give me "Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?", or "User name or password invalid." That is wrong! -On Xfinity's site, I can both send and receive directly from there. They claim this proves the problem is with you. -I'm suspicious that Comcast/Xfinity has changed their setup and Thunderbird hasn't been updated.

Hello,

Since a while now, Firefox is really slox on my computer. Here is what I use :

  • Ubuntu 20.04.02 (an LTS version)
  • Intel i5-8250u & 16Go of RAM
  • Firefox 84.0.2 (64 bits)

I experience, as mentioned, heavy slowness while loading and switching between pages, but also when I want to select DOM elements like links or buttons. Firefox actually freezes for sometimes, I guess depending on how long it has been opened, but I am really not sure. When switching from one page to another I even get a loading circle, even in private mode. And it does matter if I am on a "heavy/complex" page like Facebook or Youtube, or "simpler/lighter" pages like Wikipedia or some random blog.

What I tried to solve the issue :

  • used Firefox in safe mode
  • cleaned Firefox cache
  • used Firefox integrated repair mode

Yet, even though I got to admit Firefox did not have freezes after a repair operation or cache was cleaned for a few while, slowness always come back. I cannot afford to do that everyday.

Is there a durable solution to this issue ? Thanks, Lou.

This problem has been around since the latest version of the old version, and has carried across into the new version. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work with Google Translate on linux. I have tested in other browsers and it they all work fine. Firefox on Windows also works fine, this problem seems specific to linux.

When you press any of the Ctrl combinations it simply deselects everything and moves the cursor to the end of the text. Mouse works, but it's not practical if you are cutting and pasting all day long.

Site: https://translate.google.com Firefox version: 89.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 20.04

Google Translation is critical to my work so my current solution is I no longer use Firefox. I hope that someone knows of a quick fix, or if it's a bug it's easy to fix as I'd hate to permanently move away from Firefox for something like this.

Thanks!

I'm using FireFox on ubuntu lts 16.04 as a kiosk making use of a very handy add-on. The system was looked down to prevent anyone for browsing anything but localhost. Now anyone can jump on my kiosk and browse / download anything they want. It is no way more secure than what it was.

Even after using the about:config options the updates still update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will find a more appropriate browser option for the kiosk but for now I'd really like a way to stop the update short of shutting everything down.
