Often I am on a page and it will hang for a bit, so I resorted to having the Browser Console open when visiting some of the pages where I have noticed it happening to see what if any errors are presented in the console that might shed light on that.

Well, I can't say I didn't get what I asked for, hundreds of thrown exceptions but frankly I can't make sense of them and when trying to research them, all Mozilla says is that its a generic error where we shove anything we don't know how to explain, so that's immensely helpful - not.

So I am hoping someone here has seen this or at least knows how to figure out what it is and what's causing it beyond, its a generic error for things we don't know and so therefore there is not actual helpful resource :)

In particular, it says it is from ThreadSafeDevToolsUtils.js:88 but looking at it provides literally no helpful insight.

Here is the error (hundreds of them, but I'll give you just one copy):

"Handler function threw an exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsITraceableChannel.setNewListener]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js :: _setupResponseListener :: line 1262" data: no] Stack: _setupResponseListener@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1262:28 _createNetworkEvent@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1138:5 _onRequestHeader@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1163:5 NetworkMonitor.prototype.observeActivity<@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/webconsole/network-monitor.js:1015:7 exports.makeInfallible/<@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://devtools/shared/ThreadSafeDevToolsUtils.js:109:14 Line: 1262, column: 0"

/**

* Report that |who| threw an exception, |exception|.
*/

exports.reportException = function reportException(who, exception) {

 const msg = `${who} threw an exception: ${exports.safeErrorString(exception)}`;
 dump(msg + "\n");
 if (typeof console !== "undefined" && console && console.error) {
-->   console.error(msg);
 }

};

Does anyone have a clue what is going on here and can help clarify things for me please?

When I accidently double click in the blue browzer bar, firefox puts every single open window away. How do I stop this

I occasionally double click to drag an open window to a new location. When I double click in the top bar of the firefox browser, any open windows are put away, not closed...which destroys the link, but put away like clicking on the minus sign in the upper right blue bar that is next to the "fill page" icon and the red X that destroys the link. This may be a property of MS8.1 POS or it might be Firefox. I am sick and tired of having to open all these windows one by one each time my finger "stutters" producing a rapid double click. I have tried changing single click and double click response delays, but that does not help either. The morons that wrote MS8.1 load the keystrokes instantly without checking timing. Also, does anyone know of an operating system that emulates the MS NT system without all the F------ "features" that pervade later OSes??? Many Thanks for your suggestions!!!

I could find no way of registering this major complaint, and was only further irritated by the obtuse approach to feedback ("Firefox makes me sad/makes me happy") - I'm posting this hear so that actual people will read it, others will be about to websearch its discussion, and something might change:

When Firefox has had trouble loading, it sometimes displays an innocuous looking dialogue box asking whether you'd like to run in safe mode or "refresh Firefox". What it is actually asking is if you would like to wipe Firefox, erase your profile, return to factory settings. I previously made the infuriating mistake of choosing refresh because that term is understood to mean 'reload' e.g. refresh a web page, like switching something off then on again—not erasing something and replacing it with a blank empty slate.

As this happened a while back and I'm not risking it again by clicking the option, I don't recall what the full description was but it certainly did not make clear what "refreshing" entailed and to have it presented as a solution for something so minor and nonproblematic as loading slower than usual only ensures more and more users will fall victim to this. Considering the browser defaults to warning the user when they're closing tabs, it's absurd that such a nuclear option is suggested so flippantly and without transparency.

Hi, Firefox and Mozilla. Please help me!! This is my problem :

All download links and Firefox Add-On searches and downloads do not work. Downloads give me an immediate bouncing arrow icon and a yellow dot with the subheading "FAILED".

I have tried everything for 4 days now. Firefox Add-Ons do not load and Add-On searches do not show any results for any search and always gives me the message "COULD NOT FIND ANY MATCHING ADD-ONS".. I have installed and uninstalled every version of Firefox I could get to fight this and nothing works. From the latest version to versions several years old. All with the same results. They do not download files from download links and they do not search and download Firefox Add-Ons.

I have used every scan I could from Avast to Malwarebytes with every setting possibility It's still the same. I've done whatever solutions I've found on your site and every other I could find with no help. Nothing has changed since this all started a week ago today.

Download links on every site including all downloads of .exe programs do not download and are marked "FAILED". I get a bouncing arrow icon with a yellow dot immediately when I click the download links.

With site after site I get this same result. Example pages I've included below include the download links on these photo editing sites and freeware download sites, but all sites I visit give the same response. :

1)

This photo manipulation site and download link :

https://demos.algorithmia.com/colorize-photos/

https://s3.amazonaws.com/algorithmia-demos/colorization/70ab3d479f53413a776c9ae5e7f65c58_b8eec19a-6519-40f0-ae3e-15893e5763c0.png

2)

This other photo manipulation site and download link :

https://www269.lunapic.com

https://www269.lunapic.com/editor/saveas.php

3)

This freeware download site and either of these two download links :

https://www.partitionwizard.com/partitionmagic/the-file-or-directory-is-corrupted-and-unreadable.html

https://www.partitionwizard.com/download/v11/pw11-free.exe

https://www.minitool.com/download/pdr81/pdr81-free.exe

4)

This freeware download link :

https://www.blender.org/

https://www.blender.org/download/


None of these links work. I get the bouncing arrow and yellow ball and the subheader "FAILED". And no Firefox Add-On can be searched for or downloaded for installation. Please help. I completely need downloads and Firefox Add-Ons for my life on computers. I cannot operate my computers without download ability or my Firefox Add-Ons.

I have been using Reminder Fox for ages, and deliberately use and do not update the most recent version of Firefox that supports it. Today I suddenly get a message that it can't be verified for use with Firefox and has been disabled. No warning, no consultation, no chose! Yet another example of arrogant 'we know better than you' attitude. This is unacceptable. I have multiple up-coming medical and other appointments etc which are now unavailable. The hotfix appears to have been applied and I have reset the verification requirement to false and restarted Firefox. Still no sign of Reminder Fox. If it can be remotely disabled then it should be able to be re-enabled. It is my risk and my right to run whatever I wish on my own computer and it is not the prerogative of Mozilla or anyone else to unilaterally and without consultation to over-ride my decision. I am forced to ask for help in this forum as it appears to be impossible to actually ask FireFox support any questions. The options provided by Mozilla are unhelpful. There is no reasonable alternative with the functionality that Reminder Fox offers, and no alternative that will even accept Reminder Fox data. The developer is no longer in business - probably driven to quit by the actions of Mozilla development! I would be most grateful to anyone who can provide either a fix for this problem, or a method of contacting Mozilla support.

I updated Firefox manually on my Windows 7 computer. The update downloaded quickly and then I clicked on the restart Firefox button. A window came up saying that Firefox was restarting. It's been around 2 hours and nothing has changed. The blue circle is still spinning. My computer is not frozen. I closed down a different program.

I was wondering...

How long should I wait before I decide that it is stuck and will never restart? How should I attempt to shut down Firefox if it is stuck? My first inclination is through Task Manager. After I get Firefox shut down, do I just attempt to restart it as normal?

Thanks for your assistance!

It seems that FF can only remember 2 rows or fields of login forms. When I fill a login form that has 3 or more fields FF only remembers and stores 2 fields. Looking at the stored user/password data (about-security-login) there are only 2 fields stored: username and passwords. what happens where a website wants 3 fields to be filled in? Is this cannot be stored by FF?

I know, for example, that there are properties --tab-min-height, but my tab bar is in a few rows, so I need to know either the number of rows or just its current height. In addition, this height can change when I add or remove tabs. How can I catch this event and recalculate the parameters I need? Thank you very much for your help, I'm a beginner ...

Recently I noticed that I cannot have access to my saves shots. I can use the tool to take a screenshot and I can download and delete the shot just fine as long as the tab of the single shot is open, but whenever I try to access to the "My Shot" page, the blue bar gets stuck on loadin, but no thumbnail ever show up. Usually I wouldn't mind, but I had stored few screenshots/backup of a train ticket I bought online, shots that feature my personal data; also, I changed the "expire date" of those shots to "never", so their likely to never be deleted?

Is there a way to get access to those shots so to delete them forever?


Just to make some tests and find out where the issue could lay, I created another profile in which I copy/pasted my "original" screenshot folder (browser-extension-data -> screenshot@mozilla.org) and the loading still stuck. If I delete the above folder (so the Screenshot tool gets a "clean start" with another storage.js), then everything works and stores new screenshots as it should. I gather the issue is with the data stored in the storage.js)? Is there a way to use the "registrationInfo" included in the file to get access to the files?

Firefox 56.0.2 Crash Report [@ mozilla::dom::workers::serviceWorkerScriptCache::`anonymous namespace'::CompareNetwork::OnStreamComplete ]

https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/01442438-1105-4efa-b3a7-06a2f0180916

So... I know I have a bit of an older version of firefox... skipping right over that...

I had the strangest experience today. I was on https://mangapark.me and suddenly I got a crashed tab error. I don't normally get these and when I do its normally a very rare fluke. This time though it just kept happening. I had read about 10-20 pages on the site before this started to happen. I restarted firefox... restarted the computer... kept happening.

Stranger is that it started to happen on Interpals, Facebook, and YouTube... but then stopped... then started... then stopped again.... It also happened on other manga websites but now has stopped again.... now it seems to be very only mangapark.me

So... in the process of trying to figure out what was going on I loaded firefox in a separate instance and profile and for a good while it worked just fine... then the same issues....

Any ideas?
