I'm not entirely sure what happened but I know earlier this year in as recent as July Firefox was working fine. I don't know if it was an update or what it was but now Firefox is consistently crashing multiple times a day.

There's never an error code but one of a few things happens:

  • The entire application will freeze and not let me control Firefox at all. I need to launch Task Manager to close the browser and then sometimes reset my computer to ensure it doesn't happen again.
  • With the most recent update, some of my emails on GMail (not all just some random ones) will not load in any capacity.
  • The browser will flicker white and will hide the top bar of the application so I can't close it without task manager.
  • The application will slow down and then crash with a "Do you want to send this report to Mozilla?" and I always click yes.

I have tried disabling and removing all extensions, I've tried firewall stuff, I've tried everything I can find but the browser is only getting worse in my experience. With this last update everything loads a few seconds slower than usual as well.

Is there a solution I am missing or am I doing something wrong? I am very very close to switching browsers but I'd rather not if there is a fix.

Hi,

I cannot figure out how to get Firefox to browse to my local website IMPI server maintenance website on my LAN which uses http protocol. I've tried Firefox troubleshoot mode and also setting the https redirect off - which has zero effect. Any ideas would be welcome because I'm locked out of my server IMPI now.

Please give me solution. Thanks

About:config simply shows me a blank screen.

I need to customize a few settings and I presently cannot. This question marks this as answered but the answer is talking about a solution to the specific reason they were trying to access about:config, not why they cannot access it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373286

Others say to use the nightly build, which I don't want. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1302626

What's the deal? I've spent an hour or so now looking this up and haven't found anything.

Hi,

My apps are automatically updating so I cannot tell what triggered these crashes. But Firefox now crashes continuously, as soon as I start the app.

I am running an up to date iOS 15.6 on iPhone XS.

It is impossible to use Firefox on my iPhone, not even for one second.

I hope you can fix this.

Was painstakingly transferring my collections of bookmarked links from my old Android phone to my new one (please fix this so entire collections can be moved as one, rather than individual components). Not halfway through yet; all was going well, and suddenly I got the message "Unable to send - Retry." Multiple tries; no further success. Nothing had changed re the wifi connection for either phone. Hoping this is something simple.

Hello all,

As the subject suggests, I’m trying to figure out how I can recover about 180 tabs I lost while the inactive tabs setting was enabled. I don’t remember Firefox crashing - I just noticed a few days ago that all my inactive tabs were gone and have since been trying to find a way to recover them, with no success.

Which is why I’m here. Is there a way to access Firefox’s iOS files? From my research, I’m thinking it’s possible info on tabs might still be stored somewhere in those files.

Thanks in advance!

I am on 108.1. The issue is that when I close Firefox with one tab open, wait a minute or so, and then re-open Firefox, a new second tab is opened in addition to the first. If I leave the two tabs open, close Firefox, wait a minute or so, then re-open Firefox, a new third tab is opened. This will continue endlessly if I repeat the process so I end up with many tabs open which I have to manually close. I don’t remember this occurring in older versions, although I am unable to tell you on which version this started. Is there anything I can do to prevent Firefox from opening a new tab each time I open the app (so that I only get the tabs that were open when I last closed the app)? Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

Firefox syncs my passwords etc perfectly across four devices: laptop, desktop, phone and iPad. When I use the password menu item in Firefox it always shows consistently synced information. But Firefox on my iPad doesn't use this information whenever I try to login to a site. It reverts to a (very) old Safari password list from years ago. Firefox is the default browser on all of these devices. This behaviour seems to date from the end of Lockwise about 12 months ago. My iPad is a 5th generation model running iOS 15.6.1. How do I point Firefox at the right password file? Any suggestions please? Cheers Ian

Adding Search Engine returns "Failed | Please fill all fields correctly"

Hello, I am trying to add the URL https://searx.org/search?q=yellow (omitting: &language=en-US&time_range=None&safesearch=0&categories=science) as my default search engine (when I type in the address bar of a new Firefox tab).

I have tried every combination of removing characters from the search (https://searx.org/search?q= and all the way to just searx.org) in Firefox iOS -> Settings -> Search -> Add Search Engine, I get the response, "Failed Please fill all fields correctly." It only gives two fields: 1) Title (searx) and 2) URL (and I filled many different ways as stated above).

Trying to do this on my Linux Mint desktop on Firefox too and am having even less luck! Seems like I don't even have the option to change my default search engine, or even my New Tabs (only if I open a New Window does it open with https://searx.org). New Tabs is only giving me the option for the MFirefox front page or a blank page (both that automatically search Google from the address bar).

  • Even the option of adding a shortcut like "s" to search "searx.org" when I type a query in the address bar is not up for grabs in my Linux issue.

Anyways, if you can help with any of these, that would be great. I couldn't find anyone having issues with adding a search engine to Firefox with similar issues as to mine (I never had crashing issues).

P.S. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/search-searx/ MAY be a valid option, but the fact only 400 people have downloaded it and use it which is very phishy if you ask me. Sure, searx is not too popular, but I am not equipped to test random app (extensions) I find on the Internet. Trying to see if they are connected to searx at all, and I don't personally have the developer knowledge to tell if this is a trustworthy member of the searx community.

I Need To Be Able To Stream Audio When The Screen Is Locked, for example, I regularly use this link http://emeraldsdr.ddns.net:8073/

If you click play when it loads you should hear Audio, it's an online SDR radio, it's for tuning into LW/MW and Shortwave radio and for Amateur Radio use, every time the screen locks the audio stops, this is extremely frustrating, it happens on my Iphone and also Ipad Air 2022.

It works perfectly well on my Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro with current version of Firefox and it also works on my first gen Ipad Air on Ios 12.x.x with old version of Firefox.
