MacbookPro OS 10.11.6

  1. About a week ago Firefox was running no problem.
  2. Closed Firefox (quit)
  3. Re-opened and got the Profile missing error.
  4. troubleshoot through existing threads on mozilla support. including renaming the profile.ini file, deleting it, moving it, etc.
  5. Used Appcleaner to wipe all known goodies of Firefox from my computer
  6. downloaded a fresh 76.0.dmg from the website
  7. Problem persists. Application does not load, "Profile missing" opens immediately
  8. No application support data in /Library/ application support/firefox exists

Chrome works and Safari works no problem.

On the entertainment media site Buzzfeed, clicking on a post of an embedded Twitter video gives me a blank white image. No error message like "Unable to play the file". I did a clear history, cache & cookies and refreshed Firefox. I ran the apt update for Ubunto. It had been operating smoothly in the past. If I go to Twitter, it plays. It just goes blank when I click on the video embedded in the post.

Thank you for any assistance.

Well i0ve been reading lot of thread that describes this error, and none of them have a clear solution, so, im navigating normally on firefox while i work and suddenly if i need to download something from shutter it throws me this error, sometimes when im on slack the files that are being uploadded doesnt show and if i try to upload it doesnt work... recently i tried to change my profile, using firefox on another pc in the exact moment as the error show up, and also downgrading the about_config security level, i tried enabling DNS over HTTP and nothing worked, apparently ewhen i close and restart firefox it works, but it will continue showing up randomly and its kinda frustatring, it also happens on edge at the same time but on chrome it works... and i REALLY dont want to change from firefox to another browser... i really love this....

Hello firefox support, my computersystem seems to have an error, which leads in certain cases to a bluescreen. During the last couple of months i had cases where a Firefox tab crashed and restoring the tab always led to a bluescreen. I don't think that my Firefox instance is the main problem, but knowing the cause of those crashes could help me finding a solution. The last crash gave me the following crash reports: bp-5c21003e-9e92-4251-836d-1f8840200521 bp-9a8fa9a0-282e-4980-808b-9bb1e0200521 bp-a99a3cb4-aad0-48ea-b83b-ca3d00200521 bp-1c136cc7-029d-4ed4-9b33-c62a00200521 bp-de80bdf5-a533-49a5-8e07-d23e70200521

If you are couriose about the bluescreen messages: In most of the cases the error message was Memory_Management and Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error. Because of that i tested my RAM and my Harddrive. Both hadn't any errors which led me to a dead end. Investigating the Kernel error led to failiure code: 0x0000007a which should be a file access error. That tells me that those blue screens should be tied together. Even if you give me some informations about the cause of the firefox crash report i would be very thankfull.

Sincerely Dave

The latest Firefox update locks up my Mac OS 10.14.6. Force Quit does not work. Cannot shut down properly, or at all, unless using the power key. Did not have this problem until I updated four days ago. I have to run 32-bit because of other applications.

Alright, I use Firefox like normal, but sometime today it stopped working, I get "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" error, I looked it up using safari, followed every possible interpretation of the instructions to no avail, I deleted the profiles folder and file, in both cache, and application support, on both my user folder and global HDD folder, no fix whatsoever, I don't know why this isn't working (yes I checked the hidden files, I searched my entire HDD and found no results for anything remotely named "Profile"/"Profiles" and I don't know what else to say.

I have checked: Application support (on every user) & Cache (on every user)

I don't know what's up, I also reinstalled Firefox after deleting everything related to it and I just don't know.

Hello! I am running firefox-esr version 68.5.0esr-1+b1 (from Debian testing) with a bunch of extensions (ublock origin, multi containers, suspend tab, open in browser, all in one sidebar, etc). Yesterday, I was suddenly unable to start firefox. I can see the profile manager and start another older profile, but not the one I really need to open. When I start from a terminal, I see this error message most of the time:

 ###!!! [Child][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I have created a new profile and started it with success; after copying all files from the faulty profile, the new one does not start.

I have tried to run with safe mode: still does not start.

I have found https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/426502/firefox-keeps-crashing-upon-launch/466522 which doesn't help.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile shows me how to copy bookmarks and cookies over. (I am not using any synchronization service.) I would very much like not losing my session (open tabs), but I don't know which file or database is holding it.

I would prefer not to have to spend a lot of time reinstalling and reconfiguring all extensions, but maybe it will be necessary. Thanks for any help troubleshooting this.

Hi

I recently installed NetNanny Version 10 on my laptop. After the installation, every time I open Firefox it will crash and close within 5 seconds. As soon as I uninstall NetNanny, Firefox will go back to normal.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox (V76.0.1, 64-bit) and re-installing NetNanny but the same keeps happening over and over. Note I also 'disable' NetNanny temporarily, however Firefox will still crash.

I will appreciate some help with this.

Thanks and regards jB

Hello!

Firefox crashes mostly when opening a new tab but also sometimes randomly when nothing special is happening. It never did it in safe mode so far. I use the default theme so no problem on this side. I tried while my extensions where disabled, it still happened (but way less often and after a while). I then tried with the hardware acceleration disabled and it also still happened (but same after a while and less).

Any ideas?

Thanks!

What can I do about Firefox is freezing for 3-15 secondsand displaying jumbled web pages showing random black rectangles and squares jumping around?

Since downloading 76.0.1 on my mac laptop Firefox freezes every few minutes and somtimes jumbles up web pages showing black boxes flickering and jumping around. It is quiet alarming. I've gone through the recommended fixes three times now but the problems persist. I've also reinstalled Adobe Flash Player and Duckduckgo as well as Firefox. I thought the problem could be flash because the freezing occurs most often when I am playing a word game. I tried taking a screen shot but the mouse is frozen while firefox is hung up. The jumbled pages can be anything but it seems that it's mostly pages with images. The problem occurs in safe mode, too. I am not having similar issue with Safari.

some pages with multiple images (eg eshopping sites) only had some initial images displayed but does not have the full list of images appearing. the rest of the images are blanks. this problem does not arise if I use another browser on the same webpage. I have tried all the recommended solutions but nothing changes.

I'm rather desperate for help. I've been a Firefox user for years, and can't figure this out.

My installation of Firefox 76.0.1 on Windows 10 crashes daily. It crashes in safe mode, my Windows is up to date, my video drivers are up to date. Before it crashes, I usually have one or more pages crash ("Gah! Your tab crashed"). After it crashes, it may or may not invoke the Mozilla crash reporter. Below are a few of the recent crash reports. Can anyone give me some guidance that might help stop the crashes?

Thanks!
