Last night firefox crashed but I just shut down my computer. Now today for the entire day firefox keeps crashing just after just a few minutes, regardless of what I am doing (youtube video, staring at google homepage, in firefox settings).

I read articles suggesting solutions. These are the things I have done to try and fix the problem but they didn't work:

1) I restarted my computer (shut down last night). 2) Performed the sfc scannow function, but found no corruption. 3) Did a Norton quickscan, then a Norton full scan (stopped after 700,000 files), no viruses. 4) Checked my display drivers, both were up to date (Intel and AMD). 5) Checked my network adapters, both were up to date (Intel, Realtek). 6) No Windows updates. 7) Firefox is up to date. 8) Tried safe mode, still crashed. 9) Refreshed firefox, still crashed.

I attached a list of my crash reports, I submitted them just now (didn't realize they didn't submit). I screenshotted it because I thought firefox would crash before I could copy them all. If needed, I can paste them one by one.

I downloaded Chrome, which I'm using right now and it isn't crashing like firefox. However, when I had firefox open at the same time, firefox crashed and caused Chrome to crash as well..

Any help is appreciated. I prefer to continue using firefox because I'm used to it and it has all my saved passwords. I'm scared of reinstalling firefox and losing my saved passwords.

Hi, my firefox started to crash regularly for a few months. I have seen it crash while on idle, while changing tabs, while opening ne tabs... i.e. no repetable pattern. Morever, I couldn't figure out the reason since all the crash reports turned different reasons for each crush. It has now become hourly crashes which really started to affect my workflow.

Hi,

I've been experiencing a strange problem with Firefox.

If I click a link from an external app (e.g Outlook), it begins loading in Firefox but will then reset to my homepage which is Google. I am not doing anything to trigger this reset (holding any keys, etc) I am simply just clicking the link, which launches Firefox and resets from loading the link to my homepage. It's very frustrating.

Yes, just like I guess millions of other people, Firefox is freezing everyday on my Mac running OS 10.15.5 Catalina. Come on Mozilla. This is frustrating. I've deleted the app, reinstalled the app, restarted my Mac, over and over. Still the problem. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to permanently delete Firefox and use Safari... don't want to... but this is irritating. Why can't Mozilla Firefox get with Apple and fix this?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zagipygmsa8svgd/oIS4QAKxRh.mp4?dl=0

whenever you select for it to show a grid, and a ruler and when you decide to refresh or your code refreshes; those settings are lost. the behavior is a bit unstable however you can clearly see it happening in the video i recorded.

this makes the firefox developer tools completely unusable, i shouldn't have to pick up my mouse and click on the ruler and grid+grid options anytime i refresh. i already did that once, it should be kept on until i decide that i don't want that anymore.

i end up saving and switching back and forth between the editor and the browser probably 2-3 times a minute, that's a lot of extra and unnecessary clicks i will have to spend on reenabling my preferences

After a long browser session, sometimes the keyboard shortcut Alt-D stops working, but other keyboard shortcuts like Alt-H work fine.

The shortcuts F6 and Ctrl-L still work.

A restart of the browser fixes it though, so I haven't explored further.

It's not easy to replicate consistently; Firefox doesn't show it when first opened, but after prolonged use it may occur and then stay that way until restarted.

I am using Firefox version 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 18.04. I am not using the [German version of Firefox].

I know I can make this go away with a restart, I'm just curious if there's some troubleshooting steps I could take to identify the cause.

Occassionally, but reproducable enough Firefox gets the wrong ip address for images that are loaded. It happens in firefox for mac/linux/windows and from multiple locations. It never happens in Chrome/Safari.

https://ov1.flamingtext.com/a2.html

Load the above page, if you see "CoolLogo.com" then the bug has shown itself. If it doesn't happen, reload.

What is crazy is that it only happens for these ov10 and ov11 machines, and they get the other's ip.


I know what you are thinking, it's my DNS or something odd about my setup. Either on the client or server. But I believe I've eliminated that possibility. I'm still suspicious that we are doing something wrong, but when I see the wrong IP address in the dev tool, I'm not sure where else to look.

geoipdns config (authorative dns is ns1/ns2/n3.registerbot.com which I control). +ov10-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.56:1200 #ov10 +ov11-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.58:1200 #ov11 (there are no other entries), and true for all three name servers.

confirmed with dig, nslookup and ping. from multiple locations around the world. with at least 5 different ISP's. There are no entries in my /etc/hosts. The ip address is always correct. It's only wrong in firefox.

Any ideas?

Hi

I recently installed NetNanny Version 10 on my laptop. After the installation, every time I open Firefox it will crash and close within 5 seconds. As soon as I uninstall NetNanny, Firefox will go back to normal.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox (V76.0.1, 64-bit) and re-installing NetNanny but the same keeps happening over and over. Note I also 'disable' NetNanny temporarily, however Firefox will still crash.

I will appreciate some help with this.

Thanks and regards jB

Hi, For the add-ons section, I think all the add-ons should be scanned.

=================

it is not my fault that if I download an add-on, it turns out to be a malicious add-on that executes remote codes. You are telling me: "This is not monitored for security through Mozilla's Recommended Extensions program. Make sure you trust it before installing." How can I trust it if I don't know anything about it?? or if it is new? -Most of people here who are downloading add-ons are normal users like me, not people who understand codes and developing.- Read reviews?? Do I understand from you that some people have to sacrifice for us so the rest can know if it is bad or good add-on? And by the way Reading reviews is not enough, For example Few months ago I downloaded a VPN similar to another one, lots of reviews say it is good, so I used it for maybe 1 month then I disabled it and stopped using it. Today I look at it in the disabled add-ons list, I find this message: "VPN has been disabled due to security or stability issues." I read more information about it, it turned out that it was executing remote codes....... That means I shouldn't even trust reviews!! Nothing happened to my firefox browser, but (it may happen) in the future, because of the already executed remote codes or or maybe those codes stole some information about me,....I don't know, but it may get worse who knows what those executed codes do.....

=============================

Now after I provided my (((important))) suggestion, I need an advice please what should I do now?? Should I now reinstall this browser and clean it and remove all of the history? Or change my passwords in ((every site)) I visited?? or what? Thank You Very Much.

I discovered by coincidence that the add-ons are disabled if you choose never to save history in the Tools / Options menu. That cannot be the intention! Is this a bug?

Previously, Firefox had the option of clearing history on exit while the add-ons were still working, which I think is a much better option! (Or is this option still available? I can not find him.)

Web pages are loading painfully slowly, 11-34 seconds, some never load before timing out. Other browser (Edge) is loading pages quickly. Internet connection reasonably fast (35.7 Mbps). I tried the following:

  - Safe Mode, no change.
  - Refreshed Firefox, no change.
  - Disabled Antivirus and Firewall, no change.
  - Disabled Network Proxy, no change.
  - Content Process Limit set at 8.
  - Firefox is using 550 MB of memory (out of 10.2 GB)

There are instances when Firefox does load pages quickly, but they are increasingly infrequent and not predictable.

after the ubuntu 18.04.4 firefox update to 74.0 my passwords seams totally lost. No ask for my master password as I visited a login site. Going to menue passwords, I was asked for my master password, and after entering, my password storage was empty. After a very long time, it seamed as my passwords are back again, but they where not complete, only 271 where back. On an very old system, from which I had transferred the firefox profile to the system now in use, I had had 413 passwords and I had had to create a lot more since this clone. After update to 74.0.1 again, at first passwords where completely lost and now again, lots of them where missing. What was astonishing was, on the old system key4.db is 294912 Byte (and no logins.json), now key4.db is 720896 B (logins.json 141519 B) but for sure lacking lot of information!

Hello,

I've been using Firefox just fine for years without any issues, however recently I ran firefox as Admin mode to test something and once started I noticed that a very old extension was resinatalled and shortly after Firefox crashed... When I started Firefox again everything seemed normal, till I opened Gmail and it asked me to login..so I started to open few more websites where my sessions is saved, and they all required me to login, that's when I knew that something wrong with the cookies happened, however history/bookmarks etc seems to be there

I did open "cookies.sqlite" with a sqlite browser software and it only returned 35 lines even though the file size is 2mb

Is there anyway I can recover the cookies? this is really important to me
