Yesterday I had to reinstall Firefox as it did not exist......completely gone.....so I did a new install

Now the issue is and has been is I load Firefox and sometimes I cannot even access anything from the address bar it just sits there.

Until today the options for stopping videos auto playing worked OK, suddenly they don't work at all. I had changed all the settings in about:config - please see screen shot attached - a couple of weeks ago when they suddenly started auto playing and that solved the issue, but now I am back to square one. Even when I have ensured that the autoplay option is changed in the preferences section they are still auto-playing. Any suggestions please as this is driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.

tried to setup sync and immediately was hit with a demand to download firefox to mobile to complete setup. sorry firefox doesn't work on my phone ( at least until you fix it so it doesn't take forever to load anything) too bloated even without the bloat. can't get past that screen to try to sync anything. If I can't and actually won't install firefox on the phone because it's too slow how do I setup sync? If you are wondering it's an android and the last release of android 7. I deleted the account since I can't do anything with it that is useful. BTW I don't care for pocket and the other default goodies added to the toolbar so as I said having a firefox account is pretty useless. Can I setup SYNC without my mobile as part of the requirements? Have 2 tablets, a desktop, and a laptop and that is all the devices I'm interested in syncing. My phone is not one of them.

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

I get this crash message every day on the same website. Some days I get it more than once. Today I have received it three times in the last hour. This is an important site. It is the website of the largest circulation newspaper in my state. I check it every single day for statewide news. Why cannot Mozilla fix this problem that has been ongoing for many months? Please stop telling me that you can help, and actually fix it.

For some time Firefox crashes constantly. Sometimes right after opening, sometimes after a while. It's a little different every time. How can I find out exactly why Firefox crashes? Finally, I do not want to work in Safe Mode or the like with Firefox, especially if you have a Password Manager z.b. uses. I have also completely reinstalled the Firefox and tried to remove all other files that are possible.

Seit einiger Zeit stürzt der Firefox ständig ab. Manchmal gleich nach dem Öffnen, manchmal nach etwas längerer Zeit. Es ist jedesmal ein wenig anders. Wie kann ich genau herausfinden, warum der Firefox abstürzt? Schließlich möchte ich nicht im Abgesicherten Modus oder ähnlichem mit dem Firefox arbeiten, gerade wenn man einen Password-Manager z.b. nutzt. Ich habe den Firefox auch schon mal komplett neu installiert und versucht alle weiteren Dateien vorher zu entfernen, die möglich sind.

I've had no problem with previous versions of Firefox. Since installing version 63.0.3, constant problems with crashing, hanging or loading homepage and websites extremely slowly. Sometimes loading of homepage cycles through two or three partial sequences before completing. Have tried all obvious recommended solutions without success, including safe mode, refresh and reinstall. Am using MacBook Pro 10.10.5 and BT as my home page. I use Safari as my other browser and it continues to run without any issues

The day that DNS-over-HTTPS is released seems to come closer which has me worried. We run Firefox on 100+ machines for NGO's, most off the people use it as it is the default browser.

We run internal DNS, as far as I can tell DoH will break this, internal DNS won't resolve in Firefox any longer. Is there a way to prevent DoH rollout on our network. Other than blocking updates or dropping Firefox all together.

It will be a bad day when this rolls out and users start calling, so I would love to prevent it :)

Many thanks for any insights on this in advance.

Not even an exaggeration. It's only 9 pm and I've already submitted over 80 crashes for today alone.

For Hardware Acceleration, I've tried to disable and enable and disable it again with no change. I tried to read around and turned on "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" as well, hearing that some people have tried that with results. I do not have an actively scanning antivirus running, nor firewall. I had this issue before the upgrade to Quantum. I did a completely clean upgrade in hopes of fixing it, and I'm still having issues. Daily. It's been ongoing for several months at this point.

Here's some of the IDs of the last reports: 10 each. Unsubmitted reports:

https://www.thisisanfield.com/ is showing me a version of itself that is 3 days old. (For example, right now, the main headline is a "preview" for a game that happened 3 days ago - see first image).

1. A new "private browsing" window shows the up-to-date version (second image)

2. If I clear all cookies related to this site (and the ad blocker is disabled), I get the up-to-date version once... and then when I reload, it goes back to the older version.

3. No such problem in Chrome.

PS I cleared the whole cache too, that didn't help.

How to put graphical Reminder on the website which article/post/blog was latest read?

Hi,

I have several websites where RSS is not possible so unfortunately there is no way to immediately forward in real time every single new blog / article / post / feed to email address. Been researching RSS Feeds desktop or web application and neither of them offer both of my main requirements: unlimited feeds and particularly ability to permanently manually delete particular post/feed/blog. Having it deleted automatically after particular time period has passed is unacceptable for me. The feed, on RSS Feeds application must be able to be manually deleted by me but as i said i haven't found free of charge application offering this.

So I got different idea but not sure how to do it: Since websites have many (few hundreds) DAILY new articles/feeds posted, I would like to manually put on webpage some extremely easy and fast to be seen, while scrolling up and down, reminder (preferable graphical) which post was latest reviewed by me even if it goes to older page.

So next time when i run Firefox or when i reopen the same website (webpage), i will see very soon which feed was reviewed by me as the latest one and from there i can go to next one which was posted later after the one which was latest reviewed by me.

This way, i would not need to all the time write down the title which one was latest reviewed and every time search for it manually when i come back to the website next time. Particularly if that latest reviewed feed/post gets to some of older webpages, e.g. page 2 or 3 etc, i will save a lot of time not needing to search that feed.

I wonder if such firefox plugin or any other type of application exist?

Your answer would be highly appreciated, thank you!
