Every time I start Firefox with a new profile, despite trying in several ways to make this not happen, Firefox automatically makes a series of requests to URL's and will retry them repeatedly when those requests fail.

``` GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 ... (and so on) ```

I am trying to make this not happen. I'm ideally looking for a setup where Firefox will make no requests at all without me explicitly telling it to but just eliminating the two requests above would be a great start!

Here's what I've tried so far:

1. Uncheck "Provide search suggestions" in `about:preferences#search`

2. I've followed these instructions --- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

2. Here are a combination of select settings from my `user.js` preferences file that I put in to place before opening Firefox in my attempts to stop this. Some of these may or may not be relevant but I'm including them so you have some idea what I've tried: ``` user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled", false) user_pref("browser.search.update", false); user_pref("browser.search.suggest.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled", false); user_pref('browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url', ); user_pref('media.gmp-manager.url', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL', ) user_pref('browser.search.cohort', ); user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.urlbar.suggest.searches", false); ``` Any ideas?

Since the last update to Firefox 65, it won't launch on my Windows 7 64 bit. It shows in the running process. I've gone through all the forums and helps. I've checked compatibility, cleared out my allowable programs and re-entered, checked my Windows defender, plus everything else I could find. It would not open in safe mode although I tried something once (no idea what) and it did open briefly to save my bookmarks but then I couldn't get out or back in. I'm at a loss what to do at this point and I really like Firefox. I'm not savvy with computers but I know some and can follow directions. Firefox worked fine until the update and nothing has changed on my computer since that point except downloading Chrome to have a browser.

Firefox crashes on startup and does the same in safe mode. I tried downloading the latest version and deleting Library Application Support files, but it does the same. It must be a user setting of some sort because I can create another Mac user account and Firefox opens fine.

This is a new machine running Mac OS 10.14.2 and I've not been able to use Firefox yet. The only terminal settings I've changed, from what I can recall, is to help with font smoothing (https://ahmadawais.com/fix-macos-mojave-font-rendering-issue/) and messing around with dark mode (option to be in dark mode but only for dock & menu bar). I'm unsure if those settings are related but thought I'd mentioned it. Other than that this is a pretty much brand new machine.

Sometimes it works fine, sometimes this happens all the time. Anyone got a clue?

Why did Firefox suddenly stopp launching? (Mac)

System: MacBook Pro (Retina early 2015) @2,7GHz i5 OS: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6

Today after trying to open a random website out of my Mail-App, Firefox did't open. Now, when launching the Firefox-icon in the dock, it does the little jumping-animation, but after that nothing happens. No error-message either.

Before that, Firefox functioned perfectly. I can't remember installing any updates or changing any preferences today.

I tried reinstalling Firefox (clean reinstall) as described in several other posts. Also tried the suggestions on the Mozilla Support-Page ("Firefox won't start - find solutions"). Opening Firefox in Safe Mode or by holding the option-key also didn't work.

Would really appreciate your help, thanks.

Edit: When moving and launching Firefox from another drive (SD-Card or initial "virtual" Firefox-drive) it somehow workes!

I had Firefox Developer Edition running for ages. Always kept it up to-date. Now the latest update made it stop working AT ALL. There is nothing. The executable pops up in Taskmanager for a split second and then its gone.

I went back to beta. Worked for a couple days. Now an update came in: BAM! same thing! Now I have 2 broken Firefoxes on my PC.

Not even running the Profile manager worked!!

Back to standard version: Works

If I want to open a link from anything external, text editor, desktop shortcut, applications, etc., while Firefox is running, I have to close Firefox and then click on the link, which will then open Firefox. This is an ongoing and intermittent problem that can't always be duplicated and seems to occur most often after Firefox has updated, but I am asking for a resolution or workaround now because there hasn't been a recent update and Firefox is once again ignoring outside links when running, and only opening them if I have completely closed Firefox. This is annoying and unnecessary and of course if I change default browser to Chrome or IE, external links will open in those browsers with no problem while those browsers are running.

EDIT: I have posed this quest over on Linuxquestions.org's forum for it can be as much a Linux question as it can a Firefox question. Let me add, the command name used is "firefox" in the Terminal. Add also my computer is : IBM System X Server (4362), 64-Bit 2-Core Intel, 4 G memory./EDIT

Launching Firefox from the command line terminal generates various-numbered errors while otherwise successfully launching normally. It's always a pair of lines containing all the same text except for reference in one to "ref" and the other to "unref."

Today I launched Firefox from Terminal twice and saw a different-numbered error, but the same text:

First launch: (firefox:6676): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

(firefox:6676): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

And: (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox:6756): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

(/usr/lib/firefox/firefox:6756): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

Second launch: (firefox:6944): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

(firefox:6944): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

and: (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox:7016): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

(/usr/lib/firefox/firefox:7016): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed


Running 64-bit versions of Linux Mint 17.3 and Firefox 59.0.2.

Firefox launches a profile dialogue from which I optionally choose an empty profile or go ahead and start the browser using my usual profile. I could skip the profile manager, but it's there if ever I need it for some reason. And I don't have to remember how to access it if I need it.

Thank you.
