Managing profiles: My Firefox since rel 89.0 crashes several times A DAY. The last time it crashed 6 times in a row then WIPED out my copy and gave me a new copy, BLANK of everything. I am no rookie to Firefox as my first version was 1.0 when I converted from Netscape Navigator long ago. The rub is PROFILES. I have too many to manage now and need to get rid of some but Moz:lla in their infinite wisdom does not put a date, what was the LAST one.... and one has to search to find the LAST profile that has your latest modification, data, etc. I am fearsome in deleting any as they do not seem to be in any order and I get a SERVE warning when trying to delete. Since the new releases crashes all the time, to do critical work I have to resort to UGH, "EDGE' until Moz://a gets a solid release and hopefully STOP TRYING TO COPY EDGE AND CHROME.

Any advise will be appreciated. [except advise to use EDGE or CHROME].

Since yesterday's update on my Windows 7, today I first got error messages on pages I usually visit, my home page and the Google signin page among my Favorites. The browser crashed when I tried to bring up Settings. Subsequently I could not open it again. I just shut down that computer in case repowering it solves the problem later. This is Mac Catalina. Firefox just updated here. I hope on this computer the problem does not surface.

Good Day, We really like FireFox, after using it over recent years. However, this year it appears to be numerous problems. We do not load many thing on our computers, because the computer is there for our work not games or other uses. Our downloads are kept to a minimum, we use virus protection, and scan regularly enough.

FF freezes, too slow, and too regularly reminding of updates. So we dismiss, to avoid work disruption. So now when we do update, we are losing saved passwords, looks so it is not apparent which browser is up, and it is getting uncomfortable to use.

What happened this year?

Hi! Some days ago I started experiencing problems to load Google service webpages. For example sometimes youtube tells that there is a connection problem, when loading gmail I get " has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired". When I use other browser I can access to that services with no problem. I am in linux, and I have tried disabling all the add-ons, starting in "safe-mode" and rebooting my computer. At the beginning everything works fine, but after some time starts failing. I have tried with different Firefox versions, and the problems persists.

Since last weekend or thereabouts (17 July 2021) my Firefox on the 3 devices/platforms I use (see title) is not connecting to a specific website. Edge connects and is usable.

There is no error message, the screen in the tab remains blank and the activity indicator stops after a few seconds.

The website address is https://colony.litopia.com . The website is functioning and I have just used it, loaded images etc using Edge - I am a writer and use it every day, usually LOL.

All the other sites I use are ok, as is the main domain https://litopia.com . The hyperlink from the parent to the subdomain also hangs in the same way. I have spokent to other users of the site and they say it is ok, although it is noted as usually being a very slow site.

I have tried connection via cellphone router and wired broadband from different physical locations. Firefox troubleshooting not reporting any errors.

I use adblock on Win10 and Linux and have tried disabling that. FB container only on win 10. All platforms are up to date with Firefox. 90.0.2. I believe the issue arose when I went to 90.0

I haven't shared my data because the devices are disparate.

Comments appreciated, thanks.

iMac macOS 11.5 Firefox 90.0.2

Firefox pretty much crashed every time I quit. Doesn't matter if I'm looking at a web page or close all windows before quitting.

Restarting in Trouble Shoot mode doesn't help either.

The cause seems to be synchronisation - if I sign out of my account and no longer synchronise, the problem goes away and I can quit without Firefox crashing.

Pureflix videos stopped working on Mozilla Firefox and on brave browsers. It works fine in edge browser. I put pureflix.com in the exceptions for cookies and popups in the firefox settings. Pureflix help said they had no other help to give me and to take it to Firefox. They said no other customers were have the same problem. videos like youtube work fine in firefox and brave. When I click on the watch it button, it goes to black screen and never plays. no error message. the firefox toolbar is still at the top and working fine. The blackscreen is in the content area. Using windows defender for fire wall. using dell laptop inspirion 13.

Firefox become hopelessly show to play even 480p videos from youtube 90% CPU usage while playing 720p video from youtube freezing randomly. (same issue on other notebooks, so I have a strong feeling it is not a hardware/notebook related issue) Hardware:

  • CPU: i7-6500U
  • RAM: 8GB / DDR3
  • Video: Intel HD graphics
  • Memory usage never runs above 60%

OS: doesn't matter, experiencing same issue on windows 7/10 and linux.

to compare, same video 1080p/60Hz played with:

  • brave/chromium ~30..35% cpu
  • mpv playing same video directly from youtube ~ 19..25% cpu
  • Firefox - constantly freezing, youtube autmatically switching from 1080p to 720p, then to 480p, playing 480p @ 60..90% cpu usage

I have tried everything from this forum and from others - nothing helped.

And finally, last nail in a coffin - even my very old notebook Core2duo with 2GB ram playing 720p videos with brave browser without issues while firefox struggling to play 480p, constantly freezing and making notebook fan run like crazy.

Firefox is literally forcing me to use other browser.

Since the last Firefox update some websites do not open, but spin forever. Same site and same time open fine in Chrome etc. Same with opening a website from an email, very often they do not open but spin: copying URL to Chrome and they open correctly.

Something must have changed for the worse in the latest Firefox edition.

Occasionally, my browser will freeze and become unresponsive. I can't figure out a consistent trigger for when it occurs. Whenever it happens, my browser will not allow me to click into any of the tabs or on any of the websites, and only shows a resize icon.

You can see an example of what I mean here.

I've tried reinstalling firefox, removing all cache and cookies. This is super odd since this only happens on my desktop computer, and not with any of my other machines (which use the same plugins).
