I'm getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when trying to visit a site I've gone to scads of times and strongly believe to be valid today.

Is there any sort of workaround that would allow me to get to this site?

(And, BTW, why does Firefox absurdly tell me to inform the web site about this error when the error prevents me from getting to the web site?)

Both latest Firefox and Thunderbird fail to open and show crash report just after initialization with macOS Catalina Version 10.15 Beta (19A526h). I can not operate Firefox in Safe Mode because it crashes whenever I try to start it.

This has been happening for sometime now and im getting sick of it and on the brink of getting rid of it all together. Certain websites have parts of the page missing (mostly clickable links). Yet if i open the same page using internet explorer or google chrome everything works fine. I have read that deleting the chache and cookies helps resolve this (which i have done countless times) but the problem keeps coming back. It's ridiculous that you have to keep doing this. And yes my version of Firefox is up to date. Why is it that only firefox has this issue, surely it's about time something was done to sort it once and for all. Infuriating!!!!!

Usually the very first tab that loads in Firefox is the "Oops, something went wrong, do you want to restore your last session?" one. Since today the tab doesn't show up anymore all of a sudden.

Firefox is still using 1-2gb of RAM (like the old, huge session is loaded), even though the only tab that's open is the one I'm using to write this.

The "profiles/xxxxx.default/sessionstore.jsonlz4" file is almost 70mb. I already deleted it and used the other 70mb one that was created yesterday ("sessionstore-backups/recovery.jsonlz4") instead but the first tab still loads up empty and FF is pretty slow/kind of laggy. "History > Restore Previous Session" is greyed out and there's nothing in "History > Recently Closed Windows".

I just updated to 68.0.1 but that didn't help either.

Any ideas how I can make FF load the old session or at least make it give me the option to restore it?

please see the 2 attached pictures. I installed firefox on my new ubuntu computer and was asked to sync so I tried and kept getting a thing to past a code of some sort to allow this sync to happen. After about 20 tries, I finally figured out what I was supposed to do. In the mean time, something was happening to the other computer (the one I'm having the sync problem with) with regard to it wanting me to sync again and again, over and over. I login and it seems from the yellow triangle with exclamation mark that the browser wants me to re-sync. maybe I dont know what I'm doing. No, I certainly dont know what I'm doing.

When opening .eml files, I configured Firefox to open with Microsoft Outlook. I checked the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on.", but Firefox always prompts. When it prompts, it still has the "Do this automatically" box checked. This appears to only happen with .eml files for me. Other file types automatically launch the configured default program (as expected). Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, Nathan

There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

When I open a new tab it opens a new window with each tab opened. Each new window contains all the tabs from the previous window. It eats memory like nobodies business and nothing I have tried seems to fix it. I tried resetting Firefox, removed extensions, different theme, re-installed it. Nothing... It's started malfunctioning even more. I can't mute tabs. video doesn't show but audio comes through very loudly in for live streams. If the player doesn't have it's own mute function it won't mute... It's a mess. Help!

I have an HP Probook laptop with a Core-I5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a WD Black NVMe SSD running Windows 10 version 1809. it's about 4 months old and has been running fantastically. I use Firefox as my default browser and have had no problems with it until two days ago, when it suddenly developed a massive delay. it shows up in multiple ways. When opening a webpage, my CPU will jump to about 50% and I cannot scroll for a number of seconds, as many as 10 seconds. Also, highlighting/copying/pasting operations have as much as a 10-second delay before they appear on screen, and I sometimes cannot type in a search box for several seconds or text I do type doesn't appear in a search box for several seconds. I've tried refreshing Firefox and also starting it in safe mode with add-ons disabled, but the same symptoms happen then. I uninstalled and reinstalled and that had no effect. I performed a complete uninstall using Revo uninstaller, rebooted and reinstalled and even then it still has the same symptoms, even though I haven't added any add-ons or extensions. I've run malware scans and disk cleanup with no improvement. I can browse normally with IE or Chrome and they show none of these symptoms, but I prefer Firefox. Please help me determine what suddenly changed on July 20th or 21st, 2019. I've used Firefox for years and never had a problem like this, and no amount of refreshing/reinstalling/rebooting/disabling add-ons or extensions seems to have any effect. If it comes down to a complete format/reinstall of Windows, I'll likely just use a different browser but I'd really like to get Firefox working again.
