Firefox keeps crashing, sometimes individual tabs, sometimes the whole thing. The constant "crash reason" given in the reports is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS.

I'm using a macbook, mid-2010 upgraded with SSD and 8GB RAM. (Which may be the problem right there.)

My only extensions are Facebook Container, OneTab, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and uBlock Origin. Only plugins are OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash 32.0, and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. (no idea about this last one).

Any ideas?

(My understanding of the inner-workings of computers does not run terribly deep...)

Hi, I downloaded iMacros 8.9.7 onto an older version of Firefox, but when I click the extension the sidebar is blank. I know the add-on is there because if I move my mouse I can see there are buttons I can click.

I also recently posted a question about my Firefox screen being blank which was resolved.

Thanks

I brought a new system with latest OS Big Sur, I'm using Firefox v49.1 (required version) for my official purpose. So I installed this version in my Mac and it works smoothly, suddenly it quits and showing crash alert. I reinstalled again and again, but it's not worked. I fed up with this issue. Please guide me to solve this. Previously I was using Mac with High Sierra OS. That time I haven't face this issue ever.

I have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!

timeout error in Thunderbird when moving an email from one gmail folder to another gmail folder

Hello!

I am migrating emails from one gmail account to another gmail account. I do this by dragging the emails on Thunderbird from one folder to another one. For a few emails only (the ones with large attachments) I get the error "Connection to server imap.gmail.com" has timed out. I am looking for a fix and how to temporarily increase the timeout threshold.

The issue happens: - always for messages with attachments >11Mb. - sometimes for messages with attachments >8Mb. - unrelated to the internet speed (either >100Mb/s or a few Mb/s) - the error pop up usually after 40s to 1min - first showing in the bottom bar "xxx@gmail.com: Connected to imap.gmail.com", followed by "xxx@gmail.com: Sending login information..." and the I finally get the popup of error "Connection to server imap.gmail.com" has timed out."

The two things I already tried, based on past posts, are: - mailnewstcp.timout increased to 1000. It doesn't seem to change anything for my issue. - mail.server.server1.timeout changed from 29 to 100. It doesn't take into account the change and revert back to 29. I didn't try anything on gmail side.

Did anyone got this issue and found a fix? Thanks in advance

I am getting what seems to be random image or graphical corruption on some images. I first noticed this with a few favicons. Sometimes they would show corrupted, other times they would load properly. I also have now seen it on a webpage as shown in the attached image (percentage counter). The corruption seems to be of the same type, square with patterned lines of color. It seems to be some sort of rendering issue. The same page renders without corruption inside other browsers, so it is Firefox-specific. Any help much appreciated!

For no reason that I can see, a pinterest "save" button has started to appear in the upper left hand corner of images in my Firefox browser. I have not loaded an extension or add-on, and I can find nothing to "disable" under Tools.

Any suggestions?

edited email from public and search/spam bots view on this community forum as nobody here does one on one support by email. Also iOS is the mobile OS used on iPhone/iPad as you have Mac OS X or macOS.

I just upgraded to to Mac OS Catalina and Firefox 75, and I've noticed two very strange and specific problems on certain websites.

-On Wikipedia the number 9 is displayed as an underscore _ So the year 1669 looks like 1__9, etc.

-On Blogger, in the compose mode, typing lowercase y makes nothing appear, and typing lowercase z produces quotation marks!

I tried using a different (brand new) keyboard, and the problem remained.

I tried those two websites in the Safari browser, and there were no problems.

Get back to me fast please.

I discovered a little shield next to the URL, and read up on how sometimes the tracker blocker makes sites no longer work, I imagine you are getting a lot of calls like this? So I turned it off, did a refresh, no change, did a restart, no change, turned the computer, Macbook Pro OS Monterey 12.1, off for 20 minutes. no change. I'm furious, and having a hard time dealing with this.

The error message says: ''''The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.'''' Except it's worked fine for a week now. Until this morning. Any more ideas how I can get this to work? I realize you all are volunteers, but jeepers, there must be a way to get help sooner than maybe look back occasionally see if a volunteer has seen this. I'll try a different browser.
