Suddenly yesterday Firefox became very sluggish and showed "very high" power usage in Win Task Manager. I tried the recommended troubleshooting but to no avail so I did a refresh. Still no change so I tried uninstalling and doing a fresh install. Then another refresh but still the same so unfortunately Firefox is now almost unusable.

Attached SS shows 9 processes open with just the one tab open and the very high power usage.

Any way to fix this?

checking box within a Tab on yahoo mail will immediately open that entry and then freeze further operation until the screen is shut down. This happens on my wife's HP lap top i5 Pavilion 4.00 ram. ie: inbox tab will show a number of email - a dozen or so - followed by grey empty areas. The tab indicates 100+ total in inbox. Selecting one box opens the email but locks up any activity on that email & must be shut down to exit. The identical situation happens when I access my email on her machine. She is using Firefox 105.0.1 HOWEVER, on my machine, HP desktop AMD A8 8.00 Ram, both email addresses do not lock up, multiple boxes can be checked and work as expected. My desk top uses Firefox 104.4 This began happening within the past couple of weeks and I can not debug the situation. Any pointers ??

Hey, I seem to have this issue loading Youtube pages.

I'm running the same exact addons on both browsers.

I don't know why it happens but I think it's completely unacceptable for two browsers to behave so differently.

HP 17" laptop with Windows 10, Firefox v105.0.1, MSN home page (have had it for years}: "Crash" or "Hang"?

When opening second or third tab (following news/magazine articles), I will get three or four "tops of a pages" and cannot exit. Mouse unresponsive. No error messages. Display will flicker during and after getting completely off of internet. Before this, display is fine. To get out, I go to my email tab and open a new tab then exit unresponsive tabs.

This all started a couple of days after a "another" Microsoft update. I uninstalled the last update but that did not help. I then searched for all available Microsoft updates and down loaded three of them.... no improvement to the issue. Ran PC Matic scan but no improvement. Several restarts during these actions.

I'm not a computer guy so any fix needs to be simple. Should I just uninstall Firefox and reinstall? I do have some add-ons but can't remember what they are. Will cross that bridge when necessary.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

When I try to access my Telstra account using Firefox, either at telstra.com/myaccount or at telstra.com/paybill it brings me to the Register page where I enter my telstra user name. I click Continue and land on a blank white page and that is the end of it, can't go any further.

I talked to Telstra, they told me to clean all cookies for those two sites. It didn't change anything, still get a blank page.

Then tried with Chrome, it works perfectly, I can access my account on both websites.

Telstra tells me it is a Firefox issue. It does not make any sense to me because I have used Firefox for many years, since I had Windows 98, and never had a problem.

I am using Win 10 and the latest Firefox version. This problem started 3 months ago. Before then I had no issues. I accessed my telstra account once a month to pay it. Hope you can help. Thank you, Carmen

I have the home page (aka new tab page) pinned because it is the only way to get the home page to appear after closing all tabs with atleast one pinned tab active. One annoying thing I found is that search results open in the same tab, which causes the pinned new tab page to get replaced by the search results. This is now how bookmarks and shortcuts behave. Can someone tell me how to get search results (from the "awesome" bar) to open in a new tab ONLY when conducted from the home page/new tab page?

I have looked up every variation of this question under the goddamn sun, and all I can ever find is "how can I KEEP audio playing after I lock my phone screen?"--which is not what I'm looking for.

Long story short, I've been using YouTube on the Firefox browser app because it has ad block and I refuse to pay for YouTube premium just to get rid of the insidious amount of ads the app has that I can't be rid of otherwise. It's not as good at the app, I'll admit, but there's no intrusive ads trying to sell me crap, so I'm willing to deal with the downsides.

The problem is that audio from YouTube in the Firefox app on Android continues to play if it was playing when I locked the screen, or if I was playing audio in my car and the app was never exited (so to speak) before I locked the screen, audio will either keep playing in the former case, or it will start playing as soon as the bluetooth connects to my car again once I get back in and turn it on.

How do I STOP this from happening? There's no settings within the app or my phone (that I can find) that will help with this. I don't know if it's a Firefox issue or an issue with my phone, but the audio thing doesn't happen with ANY other app I have. Only Firefox, and it's driving me crazy. I don't know how to keep it from doing so without the added step of making sure I close the app before I lock the screen, but I don't always remember to do so, and that's the problem. Please help me, because I'm almost about to give up on this app, too.

If it's relevant and it'll help, I have a Samsung Galaxy S22+.
