Since yesterday, Firefox has been glitchy and reloading pages with errors. When I first open Firefox, it's fine. But when I reload pages, there are errors.

I'm the sort of person who deletes his cache and history after EVERY session, running spyware and virus scanners every night.

Halfway through using the browser yesterday when several (not all) pages began appearing as they do in the attached photos. As shown with the two LinkedIn examples, reloading would sometimes get the page itself back up, but images (avatars) and embedded media won't show up.

I hadn't changed any settings before this started happening. I thought it might be an add-on/extension problem, but I have all the same ones in Opera and everything is showing up fine there.

Since the last couple of FF updates, all of a sudden when I'm looking at a video on a page and I scroll down the page, a smaller version of the video pops up and scrolls down the page with me. It didn't do this before. I want to completely disable this feature, since I NEVER want to see a video following me as I am scrolling down the page (though I want it to keep playing so I can hear the audio). I couldn't figure out how to block this in about:config. Please tell me there's a way to do it - preferably without an add-on!

I'm in Firefox 76.0.1 64 bit for Ubuntu 18.04. From a script javascript I open a new tab with mywindow= window.open(). Later when user click a button this page should be closed with mywindow.close() but it doesn't work because the mywindow page results already closed (mywindow.closed results true and though if I run mywindow.close() the page remains open. The page is created with window.open() from the script thereby should be legal to close that page. Here is the code: jsfiddle code I observed that later I allow the popup and I run again the code it works with the jsfiddle. Furthermore others users seem don't have my same problem thus I think could be a setting problem. Flipping dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows in about:config to true don't change the situation. I have the same problem with the same version of Firefox in Window 10. With the browser Google Chrome the code works properly. Here is the early version of my question on stackoverflow: early question

Kindly someone could point me if this could be a bug or a setting problem or other, and anyway how to fix it?

This has happened now on two different machines, with two different accounts that have had no carryover between them.

Every few months, for no reason at all, firefox will just "forget" every login. It will forget all page history. It will remember what add-ons are present and will keep the bookmarks, but everything else? Gone.

It is incredibly frustrating and this current account (my father's) is only a month or two old, having set it up on his new computer.

Yes, it does happen in safe mode, and no, factory resetting Firefox is the exact opposite of what we want to happen.

I made a fresh, clean install of the most current Firefox 76.0.1. When launching it, it force closes after a few seconds.

There is no Crash Helper popup afterwards.

This issue does not occur with Firefox 74 and previous versions. The issue "does" occur when using the most current Firefox as a PortableApp.

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise (1809), build number 17763.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me, because as it stands, I can't update Firefox.

Hello to all, I am using Mozilla Thunderbird 68.8.0 in Windows 10 and so far I had no problem. since few days one old email dd. 8.5.2020 is continously loaded down as a new one, but it is no longer on the server. I am checking this email address ...@gmail both on the PC and on my mobile, but the problem I am having only on the PC, not on the mobile. When checking the email direct from the internet, this mail has been deleted there and is no longer present, but on the PC still coming. I tried to cancel the trash and restart, but the problem maintains, same when cancelling the email account and adding it newly. I am not quite sure whether having explained my problem correctlxy, but hope for some guidance as it is frustating every day to having to delete this mail in 50 copies and even more. rgds Wolfgang

I have been having a problem that started a few weeks back. On some websites I could not load some images. Spent a good deal of time trying to fix the issue but to no avail. Tried most everything suggested. Finally disabled uBlock and all works fine now. I thought starting in the safe mode would disable uBlock but apparently it did not. When I disabled it manually it worked. Now I need to find a replacement ad blocker.

Ok, so I just discovered that my netflix isnt working right since the latest firefox update. When I say it isnt working, I mean there are no preview videos if you hoover your cursor over a watchable object, and if you actually click to play something it goes to the selected show and display a red rotating everlasting "loading"-ring, without any percentage and there never are any error codes.

I figured I would try a rollback and did so, only to learn about new firefox profiles. I lost all my addons and settings etc, but netflix worked. Went back to the newest version and my old profile, created a new profile - netflix works.

Why not just create a new profile? Well I have many years of addons and preference-changes that would be lost, and frankly its a bloody drag to deal with something like that.

Is there any way to try to pinpoint the problem here? Ive tried all the googleable stuff, made sure DRM content settings are active etc. etc. Nothing really changed from my side except the new update.

Hello,

One website gives me a failed secure connection:

An error occurred while connecting to www.cdkeypt.pt. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This error is in Firefox but this site doesn't work in any browser

I restart the pc when it re-enters the desktop if i open the browser before the computer fully starts the site works fine which makes me conclued that something is interfering with it and it most be an update or something because i didn't install anything new, but what? it is only this site that doesn't work all the others are working fine.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks

I've already scanned the old threads with no progress so lets try again. I have a few tabs open on ff. Its working fine, it has NOT crashed. I can copy a link from an email in thunderbird and paste it into ff and a new tab will open to that page. I can click a link in a document and the tab & page will open.

However if I just click the link in thunderbird - hey presto "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

It seems TB is not handling the link properly (it always used to!) However the various TB "fixes" I can find are either inscrutable, wrong or just dont work.

Has anyone fixed this?
