RE: Firefox extremely slow to load pages or connect to Web sites after startup

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1. My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easies… (read more)

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

Same issue as [this poster] . I've seen no correlation between pixelsPerPx and cursor size, but have noticed this behavior doesn't occur in Manjaro's version of FireFox, so I started asking myself, Self, "what might the differences be here?" Answer I got back: they (Ubuntu 22.04) have bowed to the god of SNAPpiness, and Manjaro still hasn't (gets updates from Mozilla rather than the snap store).

Am I on to something here? What else could be the difference between the two flavors of Linux? Any help would be greatly appreciated, my tired eyes have forced me to change default browser to Chrome or Edge, both of which don't seem to respect my privacy like Firefox. Interesting to note that Thunderbird doesn't have the "flea-size cursor" and it also is not using snap for updates.

My windows 10 pc is set to dark mode, my win 11 pc is set to dark mode, my firefox theme on both pc's is set to dark mode, my phone is on light mode. On my windows firefox which is updated on both devices the top bar will stay dark in dark mode (default firefox theme) but after certain pages it resets itself to light, is this because of my phone being on light mode and themes are syncing over? its extremley annoying and after using the debug: page to try and force darkmode i had to reset firefox due to debug causing issues, now im using an untouched firefox version and it keeps changing from dark mode to light mode!

Some web pages contain data split into pages and provide something like "Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next" at the bottom of each page. One example is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#search I would like to be able to move between pages without using the mouse using a keyboard shortcut.

Is there any way that Firefox could simulate a mouse click on a particular element and link this to a key?

The LastPass add-on has somewhat spontaneously stopped auto-filling passwords even though I have that option enabled. I assume this is a Firefox issue because my vault is there just fine and recognizes the website and passwords (just won't autofill). Has anyone else run into this issue? How did you resolve it?

Sometimes, if the computer is offline and Firefox is open, when the computer goes back online Firefox can't connect to any website, with the page "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". The only fix is to close Firefox and open it again. Going offline doesn't always do this, and while I'm not sure of what exactly causes this to happen, a way to easily reproduce it is:

  • Turn off the Wi-Fi;
  • Reboot the computer;
  • Open Firefox;
  • Turn on the Wi-Fi;

After the computer is connected, refreshing the page sends you to "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". You have to restart Firefox.

A way that doesn't 100% reproduce it, but works enough times, is to reboot the computer without turning off the Wi-Fi, and open Firefox as soon as possible (before the computer manages to connect to the router, which is the part that isn't always consistent). Rarely, it happens after suspending the computer, or after a disconnection due to an unstable connection. I can reproduce it in Firefox's safe mode. I have a hunch that maybe this is related to networking drivers.

I'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05 (Network controller: Intel Corporation Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (rev 1a)), Linux NixOS 22.11 (I don't know about Windows).

Ask me for any log you might need.

This is kinda a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1078253, except that their solution does nothing to me.

Hi All

I manage my cookies manually as I keep many tabs open permanently. Having to constantly log back in to those accounts would be onerous if cookies were deleted on close of browser. Managing this via manually adding the website exceptions function is also a drag.

Would it be possible to have a 'keep cookie list' that are saved when the browser is closed?

When I right click on an image in Firefox, and choose the "Copy Image" option, it never works. In fact, it hasn't worked in years for me, and that's on numerous PCs, with Windows 7 and Windows 10. I'm doing this so I can paste images into Photoshop. It looks like, instead of copying the image itself, it's just copying the image file, but this means I can't paste it into Photoshop.

There are a couple car forums that have a thread called “Create a Quick Thread”. It appears near the top of the thread listings & is there for convenience.

However most times this thread is opened automatically when I access the forum & opens a text box which in turn I have to close. This started happening about a year ago & I thought it was a forum problem but no one else seems to have the problem. Not the end of the world but the box takes up the height of a full screen & is a PITA to keep closing something I never wanted opened.

I tried the MS Edge browser & a Chromebook & neither automatically opened that line so I’m presuming it’s a FF issue.

If I close out of the forum but keep FF open & go back into the forum, the Quick Thread does not automatically open. IOW FF must be remembering to not open it. I wish it always remembered not to open it. I cannot find any FF setting that would control this behavior.

Any suggestions on how to stop this thread from automatically opening?

The first image shows the line the thread is on.

The second image shows what I normally get greeted with.

Hey folks,

I hope you can help me.

If I press the Escape key three times, it obscures the screen for a second and then rebuilds the frame, so I guess it reloads the page? The attached picture shows my Youtube start page - as you can see, it's just the frame itself but not the scroll bar, so it's about the page, not the whole firefox window itself.

If I press Escape four times, firefox closes the current tab and opens a new one with my start page loaded.

What the Eff is happening here? That can't be a feature, can it? Has anybody experienced anything similar and can point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated

Years ago I imported a Firefox profile from Ubuntu 16.04 to a PC running 18.04. It wasn't very hard. View Hidden Folders, find the old FF profile, copy it. Then go to the 18.04 PC, delete or rename the existing profile, and paste in the profile from the 16.04 rig. Restart the PC, Firefox came up on the 18.04 PC just like it did on the 26.04 PC.

But Ubuntu is doing something different now. Firefox is inside the "snap" folder. Apparently snap is some sort of new package mgr. (?)

I found a firefox profile a few levels down inside the snap folder: Home/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default

Does snap complicate things? Or can I replace the new profile on the 22.04 PC inside the snap folder with the profile that I want to use from the 18.04 PC? Just like in the past, but inside snap rather than the .firefox folder in Home?

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.
