I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

I have not used my PC for three weeks and today I tried to log in to my Amazon account, but every time I tried to do the login it crashes, I also found it to crash in other websites like Reddit and the AMD Support Site. It is Firefox 58.0.1 64-bit in Ubuntu 16.04. I tried refreshing firefox and nothing, it also removed all extensions leaving only the default plug-ins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash. If I disable them manually the websites will still crash. The only way Firefox will work normally is if I restart it in Safe Mode. I also tried installed the new 59 64-bit Beta version, but is causing the same problems.

The latest submitted crash reports are:

bp-5f7cae12-c429-4dd7-b794-8e4cf0180210 bp-8b31fc05-ede6-4d6c-8cd9-10efc0180210 bp-dd409298-45fb-43bb-8fa5-a02d00180210

Both firefox and thunderbird crash directly to the "Mozilla Crash Reporter" on startup. This also happens in safe mode.

So far I re-installed firefox through the package management (first completely removed it including configuration files, then installed it again). The profile created by the re-install is still completely empty, there is no data from the original profile and no plugins.

The button to automatically add troubleshooting information doesn't work for me (probably because I'm using chrome now), so I'll try to add relevant information. If anything is missing, please ask.

Firefox version: 55.0.2 Crash ID: bp-ced2e336-0d1a-40a4-9f45-e88b70170913 OS: fully updated Ubuntu 17.04 (64bit) Graphics: Intel HD 5500

This sounds more like an issue with Microsoft but it probably isn't because other browsers like Google Chrome doesn't have this issue. The domain "attachment.outlook.office.net" is unreachable/unresolvable in Firefox (58 and earlier versions) in Ubuntu 17.10 64-bit. All the attachments that are delivered with Outlook are hosted in this domain and whenever I check Outlook e-mails using Firefox in Ubuntu the attachments are unavailable. They are there in the e-mails, sort of, but they are shown like shortcuts that don't lead to anything.

I only have this problem in Mint 18.2. I go to the link http://wamc.org/topic/food-friday I press play. A pop up appears briefly at the bottom left with this address https://cpa.ds.npr.org/wamc/audio/2017/09/vp-ARCHIVE-9-1-17.mp3 but then disappears and there is no audio. If I right click on the first link and choose open link in new tab it opens the 2nd link in a new tab and I get audio. I have several Linux versions and this only happens that I've seen in Mint 18.2. Also it doesn't happen on the same device with Chromium or Midori or Opera only Firefox. Not a big deal but odd I think.

Hi there,

This issue reports to a desktop computer with 8 CPUs and 24 Gb of RAM, which pretty much puts aside any resource constraints. Ever since Firefox was updated to version 49 the browsing experience has become increasingly difficult with a relevant lag on pretty much every task: . opening a new tab . loading/reloading a web page . scrolling down a web page . entering text (takes almost 1 second for a character to appear) . deleting text . using menus (e.g. takes about 1 second for the context menu highlight to move up/down to the next item) . great reduction in frame rate when playing videos (actually, I no longer play video on Firefox 49)

I have tried various things to stop the lagging: . restart Firefox . disable/uninstall extensions (now down to just 4) . disable/uninstall plugins (now down to just 3) . update plugins

But the lagging prevails.

I use pretty much the same web pages as I did with previous Firefox versions, but only with version 49 am I experience this lagging.

Thank you.

So I am not completely nubcakes, so i have ran apt to get update builds and build-trees. Still doesn't fix things. It mostly crashes with Facebook and Youtube. But that is mostly what I use FF for. It has even crashed repeatedly on just about:restoresession. I think it is a video problem. I have ubuntu 16.04 LTS but everything is up to date. Doesn't matter what is loaded or not, see about crashing just on restore session with a single tab!

The problem still happens in safe-mode, so there is that checked out. The reports don't appear to have much in common.

Thanks,

These are the crash reports just from the last month:

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Whenever I end up browsing online with Firefox, from time to time, Yahoo Answer crops up with no warning and is not even installed on my system nor is it an add-on, I am wondering if Yahoo Answer Browser is actually a virus interfering with peoples experience online and if it is being deliberately done by those who run Yahoo. As it has hampered me on many occasions with the research I am doing. Asking me to sign up for a network I quit over 10 Years ago of the problems it caused back then, its also why I switched to Mozilla Firefox, which is much more stable.

Now every time I type i.e. "r" the page reloads! There are other keyboard shortcuts too - every key that isn't bound by a shortcut types normal.

This means that whatever I type wherever when using Firefox I can't type the letters that are bound by a shortcut (which is executed without holding down a modifier key!).

This does not happen in any other application I use, including the Google Chrome browser.
