I am really getting fed up with this browser, it is constantly more work than it is worth. The damn thing keeps giving me error messages in individual tabs that are silly and insulting (at the same time), telling me it is sorry but it had to close the damn tab because of some stupid problem it can not even identify. Screws up everything one is doing at the time and happens MUCH to often to be a serious browser. Also, several times a day, that damn thing closes completely dumping everything that is open, including downloads, and destroys hours if not days of work that just go out the windows, who the hell thought this one up. In addition, many serious websites will not support it's functions making me have to use IE or Chrome to do some things that are so simple it is beyond explanation why someone, anyone, who is trying to push the use of a serious browser would allow such problem to persist past the first one, let alone months of the same problems. This browser sucks and is nothing to be used seriously, what so ever.

I have checked her browser against mine (downloaded latest version of the browser from the site last week, after a total hard drive replacement) and the settings seem the same on ll side menu items. She is getting this notice virtually every time she opens a browser page or visits a site.

Firefox is her default browser. Her laptop is running Windows 7.

She is getting extremely upset over this.

I was able to get to this site previously, but now it just sits and shows a spinning wheel. It works fine in Chrome and did previously in Firefox, but not now. Can it be added to a safe list? If so, please direct as to how, the instruction I googled is not correct, or doesn't show items as listed.

Firefox will not create new tabs

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

I have tried disabling all addons, the text moves a bit but still impossible to read. I have tried disabling Win10 Typing suggestions/autocomplete, nothing changed.

I have rather abruptly lost all audio in Firefox 77 on Windows 10. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Facebook videos - all silent.

Meanwhile, I'm getting sound as usual when viewing those things in Chrome (and I would really prefer not to have to go back to Chrome), and all sound from other sources is working correctly - games, iTunes, Spotify, etc.

Does Firefox hook into my system's audio functions in some unique way, different from everything else? I've recently started experimenting with doing my own music and video recording/editing, and I've tried out a number of different audio/video apps in an attempt to find the tools that suit me, and I'm starting to wonder if one of the apps I tried modified or overwrote whatever system hook that Firefox was using.

Strangely enough, the audio spontaneously started working again yesterday, a few hours after it stopped, and was still working today until I rebooted my machine. Then it was gone again.
