Within the last few weeks I have had some random BSOD occurrences while using Firefox. I used Nirsoft's BlueScreenView utility to inspect the minidump files. It showed the culprit was: nvlddmkm.sys - Nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 465.89.

The system is Windows 7 64-bit, graphics card is Nvidia GeForce GTX960 driver version 27.21.14.6589. I have used this system and Firefox for several years and never had a BSOD until lately. Disabling hardware acceleration seems to resolve the issue so far.

Are there any changes in Firefox 88 and 89 that could cause this? I have noticed other recent reports of the same problem.

Netflix quit working today. It said my browser version was no longer supported. I updated from v.86 to v.89. It looks like crap. New tab + icon is gone. "tab bar" is not transparent or dark mode. And guess what: Netflix still doesn't work. That's probably their problem but now I have no Netflix, weird crap on the whatever bar, add-on icons are gone, and this big gaudy tab bar.

How do I rollback to a previous version? I'd rather not have excuses or sales pitches as to why 89 is better from the newer-is-better crowd. For me 89 is NOT better.

So, how do I rollback to a previous version?

As I say the tabs bar is open and you can see the desktop though it. There are no tabs there - clicking in the space does nothing. As I sought a fix for hours by disabling all add ons etc I did notice that when I opened "Customize Toolbar" that the tabs appear at the bottom of the page... I also noticed that if I click on a link a single tab appears down there and if I click a link in that page a new tab appears (the previous one disappears) and I can keep doing that. As I click the "X" on each to close it the one just before it reappears at the bottom of the page. I share all of this because it may offer clues. I, however, remain clueless. I hope I don't have to change browsers but I can't get anything done like this. Thank you for reading.

Why don't realize that there are many people sit with laptop/notebooks with screens HD 1366 * 768 new thick menus and tabs look terribly, half the content slides down, a third of the screen takes your non-sense fatty tabs and spaces!

I don't now what happened but my tab bar has a different look to it now. Possible a Firefox update changed the look of my tab bar, but nonetheless, it is now harder to see the tab bar. It seems to have a more transparency look to it making it harder to see the tabs. How do I change the tab bar look to what it used to look like, which was easier to see? Can someone help? Thank you.

Hi

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

I am a software engineer. I love Firefox but I believe that a memory leak may have developed. The problem goes back a couple of months. I have one instance of Firefox open with three tabs opened but the task manager shows a large number of instances of Firefox being open and using a lot of memory. Currently there are nine instances of Firefox shown in the task manager. Look at the screen shot of the task manager that I uploaded.

I often have a lot of tabs open but I rebooted and opened a new instance of 

Firefox with only 3 tabs. I did open a new private window at the same time as the session I explained above but then I closed the private window. The memory leak might be the private window remaining in memory after it was closed. My OS is Windows 7. Yeah I know MS has stopped supporting it but I hate up dating the OS.

Thanks, Bill Smith

Firefox just up-dated itself to latest version after 88.01. And now, while the google search box appears in the centre of my homepage, like it has always done, as soon as I start typing into it, the search defaults to that horrible Chrome-like search bar at the top of the screen. How do Istop this? Or can I revert to my much loved earlier?

Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!

New windows sometimes have previous URL's in them even though I've set them to open Blank in Settings. Once these open sometimes I cannot type a new URL. Nothing happens after using Alt_D which usually highlights the Address Bar for entry of a new URL. I can't even highlight it by clicking with my mouse. Its like its locked into the previous address. The last one was a bank. And I can't even open a new tab from this window. Control_T opens a new tab in the original window defeating the whole purpose of segregating your work in different windows so you can group numerous tabs.

Sometimes there's a delay in a website being recognized and log in info filled in, sometimes its never recognized like just now with accounts.firefox.com yet its in my Passwords. URL was checked and was identical in both. You'd think Firefox would recognize firefox.com!

Sometimes it fills in the password after I have entered the username. This is for sites like Firefox.com that don't have the username and password on one page but sometimes its happened when both are on the same page. But shouldn't it recognize the username or does it have to have both on the page? Is there any way of making these types of pages work properly? This is not high security. As if I could care less what people read or know what I'm posting in a forum like this on the operation of a browser.

My google searching is leaving me at a loss here. I did something and the taskbar at the bottom of the web browser is now covered by the browser. Not the bar at the top, the bar at the bottom that has whatever other programs you're running listed in multiple tabs. Every single damn search is leading to how to mess with the task/toolbar at the top of the freakin page. I can make it reappear if I press the windows button or open another program, but while in Firefox it's not visible. The top taskbar, bookmarks, and all are still there so it's not in full page mode. I know the fix is probably ctrl and some other button somewhere but what?

Strona Wizzair. Nie mogę się zalogować, mimo, że firefox pyta czy zachować dane logowania. Po podaniu danych po prostu nic się nie dzieje. po wybraniu lotu "Z" i "DO" oraz dowolnego terminu otrzymuję komunikat: "Brak lotów w wybranym dniu". Równolegle sprawdzam na drugim komputerze i wszystko działa prawidłowo. Próbowałem: "Rozwiązywanie podstawowych problemów", "Firefox nie wczytuje witryn internetowych – inne przeglądarki tak", "Rozwiązywanie problemów z rozszerzeniami i motywami", "Diagnozowanie problemów z Firefoksem przy użyciu trybu rozwiązywania problemów", "Funkcję odświeżenia Firefoksa" Wyłączyłem wszystkie dodatki, wszystko krok po kroku i nic nie podziałało. Rezerwowałem bilety zawsze z tego komputera przez 5 ostatnich lat, ostatnio 25 kwietnia i działało. Nie próbowałem jedynie zainstalować firefoxa wcześniejszego, ale po prostu go nie mam... Poza tym wersja 89 działa poprawnie na drugim komputerze (win10) Czy mógłby ktoś podać jeszcze jakieś sugestie? Windows 7 prof, Firefox 89.0 (64 bity)

I'm running Windows 7. I have Webroot SecureAnywhere. Starting immediately after I upgraded to Firefox Version 89.0, whenever I go to a site, and open a picture, the picture loads from the top down (as it is supposed to, I think). But- now it loads slowly (prior to upgrading to FF Version 89.0, it loaded instantaneously), and it starts loading from the top in white, as the picture "fills in." ('Wish I could take a screen shot, but- by the time I open screen snip, the picture has already loaded.) I don't have my hardware accelerator enabled. I tried safe mode. In safe mode, this doesn't occur. Also, when I use Internet Explorer, this problem does not occur. Again- this problem started IMMEDIATELY after I upgraded to FF Version 89.0. NO other changes to my computer before this problem began. What is the problem? Thanks, for any help.
