Here are the facts of my case, now closed as duplicate.

I just remembered that heretofore, Firefox has automatically disabled Add Ons that were amiss. Rather than action DrMoishe Pippik's bifurcation stopgap myself, can't I do nothing — and wait a week or two — if someone more technologically skillful deduces the astray Add On, and Firefox disables it?

Whenever Firefox is over the taskbar or maximized, with the "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" option enabled on Windows 10; the taskbar doesn't 'unhide' whenever you hover over it.

This screenshot shows Firefox maximized with the 'taskbar' (the 1px high white bar): https://i.imgur.com/Ys63fGN.png This recording shows Firefox not allowing the taskbar to 'unhide' when it's over it: https://i.imgur.com/G4Vy3r5.gif

I should also add that I am using Firefox Nightly, this does not seem to be happening on the stable release of Firefox.

Hi there! For the past 3 days, my browser has started to show in some websites a weird red window (kinda reminds me of the youtube logo with inverted colors!). I've already tried 4 antiviruses, 3 antimalware, and I've tried reinstalling the browser cleanly but the issue keeps happening. The other browsers (Chrome, Opera, Edge) are working just fine. The issue happens only on some websites and not at all of them. What should I do now? Thank you!

On a MacBook Air with MacOS Monterey 12.1, I use Firefox 96.0.2 and Thunderbird 91.5.0. I bought this MacBook in October 2021, with 16 GB of unified RAM and 1 TB of main memory, of which 380 GB are available. Annoyingly, I get the message "Your system has run out of application memory." regularly, seriously interrupting my work, because I have to force quit Firefox and/or Thunderbird. This even happens about a day after restart.

In a typical instance, memory usage is: DeepL 67.7 MB Firefox 2.03 GB Preview 334.1 MB Thunderbird 907.4 MB Finder 75.0 MB

The answers I see on Mozilla Support do not solve my problem. In ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/aurrzm6j.default and in ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/aurrzm6j.default, I see nothing whose name relates to Firefox.

After many and long telephone sessions with Apple Support, they conclude that my hardware, in particular the RAM module, is perfectly fine and the problem lies with lacking adaptation of the Mozilla software to the system I use.

My questions to Mozilla: Is this a known problem? Does it occur with other users as well? What is Mozilla's stand on Apple's assessment?

When I try to launch Verizon TV on my computer, all I see is a red spinning circle. This started happening two or 3 days ago after a firefox update. I was hoping that today's update would fix this but it did not.

As suggested, I un-checked the DRM Content box but that did not resolve the issue. Nor did disabling the Widevine plug-in. When I did that, I receive the message, "You must enable DRM to play some audio or video on this page.. When I click the Enable DRM button, I see the same spinning red circle.

Since I have no issues watching Verizon TV on Chrome, this appears to be a Firefox/Widevine issue. Hopefully, it will be resolved shortly.

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading

So while using FF, I think it was a combination of too many programs opened and too many tabs (and an old potato PC laptop) suddenly the whole display turned black probably because of all those reasons, i waited a min but nothing, so i shut it down manually in order to restart it.

As i re opened firefox i finished the search that caused the "crash" i guess and only later i realized that all my history (an awful lot) is gone. Tried using an old Windows restore point of december but nothing. After i looked up that history is stored in the places.sqlite file i went into the profile folder and found a places.sqlite.corupt file. Does anyone know how can i repair it ?... Pleaseeee help me retrive my history. Thanks a lot.

This is a question in relation to [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1302462|this]

The fix suggested there seems reasonably easy to follow but I'm a bit unsure about this

Delete all extensions* files and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

Apart from compatibility.ini I can see two extensions*, namely extension-preferences.json and extensions.json. Is that correct?

Now I'm supposed to delete those three files. And here comes my question:

What does New files will be created when required. mean? What I'm worried about is that all my extensions will disappear and I will have to start with from scratch reinstalling them all again.

Od co najmniej dwóch aktualizacji ff (zalecanych przez przeglądarkę) zauważyłem że przy korzystaniu z trybu prywatnego i próbie otwarcia nowego okna z nową stroną (gdy jest dostępna aktualizacja przeglądarki) ta nie ładuje się w ogóle (w znaczeniu próbuje niby coś załadować ale nic się nie dzieje - sprawdzone na kilku rozmaitych adresach), ze starych (wcześniej otwartych) można korzystać bez problemu. Pomaga dopiero ponowne uruchomienie liska znaczy aktualizacja i ponowne otwarcie linku w trybie prywatnym/incognito.

Hi, I've updated from ff95 to 96.0.2 and found that my files on google docs have not been loading properly. The text is blurred and it gives an error saying 'some fonts could not be loaded. please reload'. This seems to only happen in firefox and is fine in chrome and as well as when I downgraged to ff95 on my old profile. Back on 96.0.2, I've tried clearing cookies and cache, safe-mode, setting theme to default, all to no avail. Are there any other ways I could troubleshoot this issue? I've attached an image that shows what the text looks like on chrome and the latest version of firefox.
