Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

H A Forum I use extensively suddenly started showing content layed out in a sort of linear fashion where everything was set onto a new line. I have used this forum for more than 18 years and this is the first time this has happened, The site is a respected one, and a search for 'MSDN Forum' would provide a link(s) to my problem site. After a LOT of work trying to find what has happened has resulted in my finding that scripts and CSS seem to be skipped from being loaded by Firefox reporting the error message I mention in the title. These errors are MANY thoughout the incoming data. I subsequently tried to pursue Mozilla articles on Mixed Content Blocking, which seems to say Ishould have an option to 'disable' Firefox security with respect to the above via clicking on the 'sheild' icon and follow through to where there is supposed to be am option to 'stop/disble' - but there is no such option here so I can't check if that option is a cause of my issue. This issue is very severe as it disable ALL of the needed buttons - such as Reply, Quote and Post New Question - for a Forum, that is indeed severe! Now, I don't know if this whole issue is a fault with either Microsoft (who seem to be serving faulty data, or, Firefox for being overly coseting) I attach an image showing a portion of the errors (they extend throughout the entire list). Patricularly, the line at the top saying the Style Sheet could not be loaded summarizes the whole issue. Is there any other way I can get to disable Firefox being overly protective - I do know how to use the About:Config etc., but lack the ability to find anything relevant to this issue in any of the content there.

A further snippet of information: amongst other things, I reinstalled Window 10 and used Edge immediately after install had completed - same issues (suggesting that either both browsers are overly protective, or that the issues stem from Microsoft). I have tried most/all of the things likely to be suggested here suxh as using Safe Mode, no Extensions etc.

To save readers from becoming bored with this long essay, I'll stop here - if further info needed, just ask.

This happened after Firefox updated to v73. When I go into a 123 Flash chat room (chat-avenue.com), the screen will frequently white out; the entire screen goes white. Sometimes it will come back to normal after a few seconds; other times I need to close/open or switch tabs, and other times, the Flash tab will crash back to the main (non Flash) page of that site . v72 and earlier didn't have this problem. Other tabs are not affected.

If there isn't a way to go back to v.72 is there any workaround until this gets fixed? Thanks.

I am using a video conferencing site called "whereby.com". It works as expected for everything but screen sharing.

When attempting to share my screen, Firefox asks me if I'd like to allow "whereby.com" to see my screen (see attached screenshot). When clicking "Allow", I see the message in the second attached screenshot.

Firefox version - 73.0.1 Mac OS version - 10.15.3

The same error message appears regardless which of the options I select in the window where Firefox asks which window or screen to share.

Whereby doesn't have any info on this, and no search I've run has turned up anything that might give more info on the cause of, or possible solution to, the error saying screensharing could not start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if there's anything more I need to share to help troubleshoot this.

Thanks, Dan

I can't find a way to change the scrollbar color in firefox 73. The gery on grey scrollbar is very annoying because it's so hard to see. I tried to create chrome folder and tried to add various codes to userChrome. I also tried this: https://gist.github.com/Sporif/db6b3440fba0b1bcf5477afacf93f875 but it seems to not work.

On some pages the scrollbar color is fine, but on most pages it is the annoying grey on grey. I also tried disabling layout.css.scrollbar-color.enabled in about:config without any effects.

For several days now I've been having issues with Firefox. It is very slow to start up, freezes for 10 seconds when a new tab opens, takes another 10 seconds to begin loading the new tab after unfreezing, and will not play YouTube videos (tries loading but always gives "error has occurred" message). I have tried reinstalling Firefox twice and it has not changed anything. I've also turned off advanced performance settings. Can someone help?

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.
