Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

Address autofill simply does not fill in the street address line for nearly every site - all other lines are properly autofilled (First/Last name, city, state (works even withsome drop downs), phone, etc)

I've even created fake addresses with one or two lines of street address info, and it just never fills in the actual street address lines on sites (whether they have one or two street address lines etc).

What gives?

I don't see anymore comments from other Instagram users in my comment section (the one with a heart icon). This only happened for the last three days or so. I used to be able to read comments form other users, but now when I click on the heart icon, I get a message that says "fail to upload". Now I have to remember which photos I looked and commented and go to the particular photos to see if anyone has made any comments. Why is this happening?

Hello everyone, 3 weeks ago I have started to face random crashes and no responding at all from my browser. Even though I have the latest version of Firefox but nothing seems to work well and I don't know the reason since it doesn't give me crash reports. In addition I didn't install any suspicious add-ons or external plugins since the problem had accrued.

Thanks in advance.

Firefox is throttling speed

Hello,

I had a 300mpbs connection for download, but was never able to get past 200mbps. But now today, on installing a 1gig connection, I still cannot get past 200mbps. The installer blamed it on my PC's network card. But I just ran the same speed test with Microsoft Edge 64-bit, and I was able to get past 600mbps. So clearly, this problem is isolated to Firefox.

I am using the latest Firefox 32-bit. I have no addons installed. I am running Firefox on Windows 7.

After typing this post, I thought the 32-bit Firefox was probably causing the issue, so I installed the Firefox 64-bit, and the speed increased by 50mbps to 250mbps.

Thank you.

Over the last few days my "Find in Page" function has stopped working. If I type Ctrl-F the window opens in the status bar. I can type one letter that highlights some - but not all - instances of that letter on the page. As soon as I type a second letter the field goes pink.

Is it possible this is something easy to fix without having to completely reload Firefox?

Yes, it's a very old version of Firefox. But it's worked perfectly until now.

How to turn off the name of the search engine in a blue box in the address bar instead of the search shortcut as typed?

When I typed any search shortcut (let's say "w" for Wikipedia) and then Space in the address bar, the bar would have just shown "w ".

After an update to 86, now typing "w " shows "Wikipedia" in a blue box instead of "w ". This is extremely irritating because I now can't just press Alt+D and enter a new search shortcut from scratch when I mistyped.

I have both browser.urlbar.update1 and browser.urlbar.update2 set to false.

When I turned on my computer today there is now a green, puzzle piece button placed at the end of my searchbar. See attached When I click on it it says Polly. What is this for ? Why is it showing up now? Do I need it? I'm running Waterfox Classic, but there was no support tab for Waterfox, only Firefox, that's why I had to post the question here. Thank you

I am afraid that I am very confused about the changes to this site. Are the FAQs the only way to learn about the changes, or is there some documentation I am not presently seeing?

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!
